administration for defense saic Thursday it has drafted a tenta tive nationwide order to bar in stallation of new equipment us ing natural gas for heating homes and other buildings Deputy Petroleum Administrator Bruce K Brown said the order may be used to limit the con sumption of natural gas in order to protect present customers and assure adequate supplies for de fense needs Brown said the tentative order would bar suppliers after a given date from providing gas to 1 Any new spaceheating cus tomers 2 Any new largevolume cus tomers without appiwal by PAD Brown said the spaceheating room heating limitation would forbid new gas installations or conversions in homes Brown emphasized in a state ment that the matter is in a tenta tive it is not certain the order will be issued But he said there is an ex tremely tight situation in natural gas supplies and that something of this sort appears necessary It is expected that there would be prompt exemptions from or modifications of such an order if it is issued wherever the natural gas supplies are adequate Brown said There is no intention here of working a hardship on anyone But it is obvious that to pro tect both industry and the home consumers of gas from harm some action must be taken immediately Unless something is done promptly a serious gas shortage almost certainly will confront us next winter Brown said no action would be
