Quot Texas cannot afford to drive buyers Thompson said. He added that one purchaser served notice of intention to buy 5.000 barrels daily in Arkansas if it was not made available in this state. The former compact commission chairman said crude storage figures generally were misleading in that Only a Small percentage was available for a immediate of the 200.000 000 barrels storage reported East of the Rockies he said Only 87.000.00 was readily available.

O Daniel turns Down plea for extra session Board s order not Law voided governor says Austin feb. 24�? of a governor w. Lee of Daniel today refused to Call a special session of the legislature which had been suggested by Railroad commissioner Jerry Sadler to meet a Quot crisis in the Oil industry., the governor said he could see no reason for a session at a Cost of possibly $200,000 to the taxpayers for performance of a duty which the Law has placed upon the Railroad commission. Sadlers suggestion was made after a three judge Federal court ruled that the method of prorating Oil production in the East Texas Field was unconstitutional. The governor sent the following letter to Sadler Quot i am in receipt of your letter in which you ask me to Call a special session of the Quot you give As your reason that the Oil Industry is in bad condition be j cause the Federal court has held a proration order of the commission illegal. If you have any idea about How the Law should be amended you did not include the idea in j your letter. Quot May i Call your attention to the further fact that the Federal court in its opinion raised no question a to the constitutionality of the Texas Law covering proration hut the court complained because the order of the commission a an illegal order and not in compliance with the Law. I am sure you know that former Railroad commissions acting under the present statute have had no difficulty in drafting Legal orders which the Federal courts have upheld. A i would Call your attention to the further fact that the Federal court has granted the commission to Days in which to decide whether or not it will draft a Legal order and they have further agreed that of the commission decides to redraft the order they trill Grant them thirty Days additional time in which to do it. A therefore the urgent matter is not for the legislature to be called together to pass a new proration Law but the thing demanding immediate attention is for the commission to draft a Legal order under the existing Law Quot i therefore Sec no reasons whatever for convening the legislature at a Cost of possibly $200,000 to the taxpayers of Texas to perform a Olney.
