A one sign of these fuel Short times is the car Pool. Another Energy officials say May Well turn out to be the Power Transfer. Systems whose electricity is generated by Coal rather than the scarcer fuel Oil Are being asked by the Federal Power commission to Transfer reserves to Oil fuelled systems that Are running Short. Negotiations Are under Way Between the pc and a number of Central and East Central Power systems to Supply the Northeast with enough Power to save an estimated 30,000 barrels of Oil a Day according to t. A. Phillips chief of the of pc a Bureau of Power. That agreement the first of its kind in the nation hopefully will be concluded in Washington Friday Phillips said in a Telephone interview this week. The big question that remains is How much Money the supplying systems should be paid. A a that a where the problem is and its being negotiated this week Quot said Phillips.
