EDITION VOL XL FIVE CENTS A COPI ASSOCIATED PBES8 LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 23 1934 CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 221 Oil Control Bill Buried Fear of Filibuster Caused Refusal to Pass Act By HERBERT PLTJMMER ASHINGTON June 23 IB Theres more back of why the seventy third congress refused to enact the ad ministrationsup ported oil pro duction control bill than appear ed on the surface During the lat ter part of May President Roose velt made the di rect request that the measures sponsored in the senate by Thom as of Oklahoma and in the house by Disney of the same state be passed Mr Roosevelt was frankly fear ful of a collapse of the whole in dustry unless the present laws were strengthened Secretary Ickes administrator for the petroleum in dustry was even more alarmed than the president Despite these entreaties how ever after a short lived flurry of ac tivity the congress adjourned with the proposed legislation buried far down on the calendar The truth of the matter is that word was passed around privately that any attempt to force passage of the measure at the session just concluded would precipitate a fili buster in the senate of tremendous proportions Keady to Filibuster It was estimated that at least 15 members of the senate were pre pared to stage a talkfest in opposi tion to the bill House leaders hearing this decid ed they might as well put on the brakes on that side of the capitol It would have been futile they agreed to go ahead and pass the bill only to have it talked to death At fti lime pressure was applied In behalf 7bf tie ineasiire thehoute committee on interstate and foreign commerce which considered the bill was up to its neck in work The stock market control act and the farreaching communications of the most technical pieces of legislation enacted in the session were still in the formative stage This committee headed by Raybum of Texas had the reputa tion of being perhaps the most thor ough in the house Getting Together Hard It simply refused to report out a bill until it had been explored ex haustively The result was that it enjoyed the best legislative record in the house Both the stock market and communications measures went sailing through the house without amendments and with maximum speed Inability of representatives of the oil industry to get together on what they wanted also had its effect What hearings were held made it apparent that everybody was all but ready to fly at each others throats Even the oil administration seemed a bit hazy as to what was actually needed So the whole affair was quietly sidetracked It will be only six months until congress meets again the congressional bosses decided Perhaps by that time there can be a meeting1 of minds FORECAST IOWA Partly cloudy
