Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta $7,000 BONUS - United States Marine Sgt. John Brooks of Boise, Idaho, has good reason to smile - stacked in front of him is $7,000 he received as bonus for re-enlisting for four years. Nixon's action rapped WASHINGTON (AP) - The Independent Petroleum Associa-tion of America has urged President Nixon to reconsider his orders increasing oil imports and freeing offshore production. Nixon announced last Friday night that importers unable to use their allocations for Middle East oil could use them for Canadian oil instead. He also separated oil production on federal offshore areas from their past linkage with the production limits of adjacent states. Nixon's stated aim was to counteract a recent price increase of 25 cents a barrel on domestic petroleum. In a letter to the president Monday, IPAA president Robert E. Mead charged that these actions would cause a shortage in domestic oil production. HURTS CONSUMERS "Your actions," he wrote, "condemn consumers of gasoline and home heating oil to the same ill-fate and hardships now being experienced by consumers of residual fuel oil on the East Coast who are faced with shortage and substantial increases in prices." He said the actions "will ordain that consumers of all other oil products will become increasingly dependent on imports and the accompanying uncertainties of supply and price. "A shortage of domestic production can be p r e d i c t e d," Mead continued, "because already the cash flow of the industry is inadequate to do the necessary exploration to meet growing demands." Mead reviewed the history of oil prices, arguing that they had been relatively low compared with increases in the cost of living, wages, wholesale prices and other mineral prices. Nixon's orders, Mead said, were "based on misinformation" and, by singling out the oil industry, "appeal- to us to be discriminatory and therefore punitive."
