All but one of the armored battalions will slart returning next month. The five units being withdrawn total about men. One armored battalion is be- ing kept with the 7th Army in West Germany. A Pentagon spokesman said this is to offset a reduction in 7th Army strength which came about when a battalion-size unit was senl from the 7th Army to Ihe U.S. garrison in Berlin lale in 1961. Armored Calvary There had been indications that the armored cavalry regi- ment, which is from Ft.

Langdon told a group of Victoria County supporters at a coffee Friday thai the com- mission is dedicalcd to preserv- ing Texas oil production against "a flood of unneeded, unwant- ed oil that could not be sold except possibly at panic prices." The commissioner, seeking election to the remaining four years of his first term, pointed out that the "market demand law" under which the commis- sion functions in its proration of oil production is the greatest safeguard for the economic protection of the small operator Texas. Such a law, he said, limiting Texas oil production to the amount that can be sold each month is absolutely essential to the small marginal operators. The coffee for Judge Lang- don was held at Continental Inn on the Houston Highway and attracted a sizeable attendance. Judge Langdon was appointed to a vacancy on the Railroad Commission last year by Gov. John B. Connally. Geared lo Market Demand "The market demand the commissioner pointed out, "allows every operator, large or small, to get his proportion- ate share of the market. Much of the Texas oil reserve is in old or low-producing fields where wells can make only a few barrels a day.
