Six Solons Picked In McCarthy Probe (oniinissioner Asks No Cut For Texas Oil AUSTIN (ft—The chairman of Texas’ oil regulatory agency says the restoration of oil production in Iran should not be allowed to impair American oil production The statement came from Railroad Commission chairman Ernest 0. Thompson, internationally recognized authority on oil production control. Thompson’s statement was based on advance indications confirmed in Tehran, Iran, today—that eight Western oil companies and the Iranian government had reached an agreement which would bring Iran's oil wells back into production. Directing attention to the glutted condition of this country’s domestic oil market, Thompson said; “It would not seem fair to our own people to permit more oil imports.” He suggested Uiat Iran’s neig'n-boring Persian Gulf countries make room for the prospective new flow of crude and its products. He said those countries bad upped their production in 1950 when Iran closed down an output of 650,000 barrels daily because of its dispute with Great Britain over nationalizatiim of the oil industry in Iran.

Ta»to ‘Not Good' His directive said “the attire being worn in public by some American women is not in good taste,” and warned that if they didn’t do something about it “positive action” would be taken.

I can’t change clothes every time I want to go out of the house.” Another said stoutly: “Our freedom it being threatened.” Col. Dilley (of 1510 Armstrong Ave., Kansas City, Kan.) remained uate who distinguished himself in \ good-naturedly firm, the African campaign in World "They’ve already shown a big War II, said some women were improvement.

They said they hoped to begirt shipping at least some of the oil again in about two months. Under the agreement announced simultaneously in Tehran and London, the eight companies as a consortium will operate the vast Abadan refinery and the surrounding oil fields. They will buy the oil output from Iran and will sell the production abroad. Iran will retain title to the fields and the refining facilities. Settlement of the three-year diplomatic battle was announced in a joint statement by Iranian Finance Minister AU Amini and Howard Page ef Standard Oil of New Jersey, chairman of the negotiator* for the oil companies. No Pay Défaite Their statement did not detail the rate of payment to Iran but informed sources said it was virtually the same 50-50 split that prevails elsewhere in the Middle East. Amini and Page estimatod that Iran, through direct oil revenue and taxes, would get 4!^ million dollars during the first three years of the arrangement. The estimate for the third year, more than 187 million, is larger than Iran’* pre-nationaUzaiion oil revenue. TImi agreanmmt wIB nin for 28 years, with provisi(m« for thr^e 5-y«ar extensiofis.

Gulf Oil Co., and Socony Vacuum, all .American; Royal Dutch Shell and Compagnie Française de Petroles. Though Page in a separate statement said the companies “must now conclude a separate agreement among themselves covering their participation,” informed sources said they would set up tbii division: 40 per cent to Anglo-tran-ian, 40 p«* cent to the five .American etxnpanies, 14 per cent to Dutch Shell per cent to th* French firm. In London, Prime Minister ChurchUl’s government welcomed the accorti and said it would make “a major contribution to the sta-biUty of the whole Middle East.” The British government owns 51 pèr cent of the stock in Anglo-Iranian, Western sources in London said the settlemait is expected to help clear the way for a new Western-backed defense setup in the Middte East.
