Jim Continental trailways terminal manager in Abilene, said Tuesday morning he will have to put on extra help during a nationwide strike against Greyhound Bus Lines, but he docs not know now just how many people he will need. "WE GOT everybody oul as they came he said of the Monday afternoon and night switching .of Greyhound passengers to Continental and oilier bus lines. O'Neill said Continental han- dled more than 70 Greyhound passengers after Grey- hound bus drivers and others walked but '.on the company Monday afternoon. Continental was honoring all Greyhound tickets. An associated problem .is freight, which was. piled up Tuesday morning -inside and outside the' ;427 Walnut Conti- nental station.' O'Neill said G r e y h.o u n d freight, too, is being carried. A few -blocks away, the Greyhound station at 535 Ce- dar is considerably less hec- tic.

Major purchasers of Texas crude oil asked for barrels a day in December, a decrease from this month. Twelve of the 14 major buy- ers asked for the same amount in December as in No- vember. Atlantic Richfield Co. raised its nomination ban-els a day to but a spokesman said he did not know why. Gulf Oil .Corp. dropped .its nomination barrels to and a spokesman said the. new figure indicated a general decline in. production. As -usual the allowable for the mammoth East Texas liclcl was restricted to 66 per cent of potential.

And the bags are expensive. Cans cost probably one ihird less than bags. Pur- chased in carload lots from the manufac- turer, a good bag will cost at.the very least S or 9.cenls each.
