Contemplating two days of t^l-mony in hearings on the proposal, the various oil Interests wondered how' soon the sub-commltte© would act. Chairman Thomas <D-Utah) indicated last night he would not tolerate delay but added that Senator» Bulow (D-SD) and Fraxler (R-ND) had other cwnmlttee hearings today which would delay a decu>ion at least until tomorrow.
