Big oil nations press for pact to pool supplies New York Times Service PARIS The major oil con- sumer nations are pressing nfgoliations For an agreement under whirl) they would pool their petroleum supplies to provide emergency flows in rase of production distur- bances. Iliph sources in Hie Euro- pean o in 111 on Market reported that such an accord may be signed by the end of November. More cautious American officials said only thai they were "hopeful" that compromises would be found and that the talks so far were going well. The negotiations began here on Sept.

In trying to circumvent the companies. Tripoli has just announced plans to work out supply agreements directly with Kranee and Germany. The companies and the Li- byan government, however, are apparently anxious to avoid a direct confrontation, at least in the immediate future. Although the deadline for the companies' accep- tance of Libya's terms has run out. special committees are now to be set up to study the compensation issue. Negotiators in Paris representing consumer countries are similarly anx- ious to avoid giving the im- pression that their oil-polling efforts represent collusion against the producers. "This is something com- pletely apart from the Libyan dispute." said one source close to the negotiations. "There could be a shortage of oil for a variety of reasons. Hut indirectly. I suppose, it. strengthens the hand of the consumer countries." A n o t he r source. a Kiiropean. said he would not rule out the possibility of a giant conference of industrial- consumer and exporting- producer countries.

Lots of entries but not good enough rnursaay, ociooer 4, THE LeinBHiuue MCMALU Australia's attempt for new anthem futile By BRUCE JONES CANBERRA (Reuten After nine futile months which attracted thousands of am- bitious but unacceptable entries in a contest for a new national anthem. Australians will still be singing God Save the Queen on their next national day, The search for a new anthem began in a pitch of nationalistic fervor last Australia Day. Jan. 26. when Prime Minister Gough Whitlam said it was essential for Australians to have a new lanthem befitting an indepen- dent country. He offered S5.000 for the hest anthem. In the end. however, despite the flood of entries, the judges felt none compared to three traditional Matilda. Song of Australia, and Advance Australia Fair. Newspaper polls said Ad- vance Australia Fair is slight- ly ahead of Waltzing Matilda. The final decision probably will be made by a public opin- ion poll. Australia's governing Labor party, which has been com- mitted to the idea of an all- Australian anthem since 1905, set up an elaborate system for finding the new piece. It began April 14. when the government formally invited everyone interested to submit words for the new anthem and soon afterwards appointed a committee comprising two poets, a playwright and a his- tory professor to judge them. At a meeting in Sydney June 15. they agreed on six poten- tial anthems from more than 2.500 entries. One of them by poet Douglas Stewart, was disqualified because it turned out to be an adaptation of Waltzing Matilda, the original words of which still are under copyright. Stewart explained his attempt to rewrite the song by saying he sympathized with those who preferred to keep the original but didn't think it had a chance of winning. "I don't think a song about a sheep stealer can be a national anthem." he said. Australian wildlife figures prominently in the rejected entries: Land of Hope and Glory i home of the kangaroo, dingo and the fox) and Koalas Bark and the Platypus Quack i jackasses laugh their loud ha-has i. among them. Odes to Australia's bush- ranging Ned You Die Like a tributes to the lucky Is My Country (I love it oh so much, it flows with milk and honey, if you work for it as such others. But none of the 1.300 resulting entries were found by a second committee of jud'ges to reach the standards set by the three old favorites. Government sources say it is likely to be December or later before the government decides how the final choice will be made.
