oil are to be found under the sands of a 400mile radius from the head of the Persian Gulf in what has come to be known as the Middle East One little sheikdom calledKu wait its about the size of our stale of New Jersey is known to have more oil beneath its sur face than can be found in the en tire western hemisphere from Alaska to the tip of Chile It follows that oil can be had more easily and more cheaply in the MiddleEast iriore accurate ly described as the Near East than anywhere else in the world because geological formations have trapped vast pools of the petroleum relatively close to the surface 1 Here are three figuresthat probably tell the story more briefly and graphically than a thousand words could The aver age Middle Eastern well produces about 5000 barrels a day where as the average yield per well amounts to only 200 barrals a day in and to only 12 bar rels the United States THIS as I pointed out recently in a commentary having to do with Egypts Gamal AbdelNas ser is at the center of the whole ferment in that part of the world There are two legs under the Nasser economic program The first of these is the neces sity of convincing the oil rich Arab countries that what belongs to one Arab belongs to all Arabs The second of these is to de mand and get a greater share of the oil revenues for the Middle Eastern producing territory The people of Iraq Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will stand up and cheer for Nasser as a great spokesman for their Arab race But will they maintain their thusiasm for Nasser after he begins claiming a substantial part of their oil income for his povertystricken Egypt On the second point the one having to do with getting a great er income from the Middle East ern oil it should be recalled that in the past has been to di vide the profits between the coun try with the oil and the European or American companies drawing it from the ground and getting it tomarket IT WOULD BE vtry easy for Nasser to kill the goose that lays the golden egg The case of Irans Mossadegh is still fresh in the mind of people in that now im poverished country The crying premier had the mistaken notion that nationalization of the oil in ISC BARN IN

got priced unreasonably high the European users simply turned to other sources of supply A oncethriv ing industry went boom over night Mossadegh lost popularity at once and was sent into exile Iran is still a most unhappy coun try as I can testify on the basis of a visit there not many months ago Just what is in Nassers mind at the moment remains to be seen At this lime he could ma nipulate the oil
