Oct. 28, T974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS . DALLAS, Tex. (AP) Independent oil operators have left oom for a reconciliation but have charged that major oil companies have "divided the ndustry" on tax matters now efore Congress. A resolution tentatively approved Sunday by the imports olicy committee of the 4,000- nember Independent Petro- eum Association of America said the international companies have misled the public and the government into think- ng the domestic industry does not need its 22 per cent depletion tax allowance. It also said some major companies have told congressmen :hey would trade domestic depletion for elimination of oil price controls. John Miller, association pros ident from Allegan, Mich., said major companies have been conspicuous by their absence as independents have battled throughout the year to convince Congress the depletion allowance is vital to the nation's energy self-sufficiency objectives.

The proposed resolution must clear two more committees before being submitted Tuesday at the concluding session of the ssoclation's annual meeting. Regardless of its final form, he resolution broke into the pen for the first time the rc- wrted concern of the indcpcnd- nts over maintaining a united ront against lax proposals they contend would cost the industry $2 billion and force many independents out of business. Miller said he told represen- ativcs of the major companies of the impatience during a Washington meeting last week.
