OIL COMPANIES FIGHT
Complain of Preferential Kate
Clause, Holding Government
Is Short of Tankers.
FIGURES ABE CITED
Sinclair and Western Are Protest
Two petroleum companies—the Sin
clair Refining Company and the
■Western Petroleum Refiners’ Corpora
tion —filed a protest with the Ship
ping’ Board yesterday against the
application to petroleum products of
the preferential through export rate
clause of the merchant marine act,
on the ground that there is an
Inadequacy of government tanker
Commissioners Thompson and
Plummer, before whom the protests
were heard, said the briefs presented
would bo given due consideration.
The protests of the Refiners’ asso
ciation, composed of sixty-five com
panies in Kansas. Oklahoma and
northern Texas, declared the "asso
ciation realizes, of course, that the
policy underlying section 28 is not
an issue before the board.” as Con
gress "was responsible for the legis
lation" which placed upon the board
the “responsibility of determining
whether adequate shipping facilities
are afforded by American vessels.
Cites Scarcity of Tonnage.
The brief declared, however, ffhat
shipping facilities "can not properly
be considered adequate unless ships
open to charter by any exporter are
available upon any reasonable de
mand." In this connection the asso
ciation submitted figures showing
that out of 293 American tankers on
July 1. 1923. all except fifty, whicli
belonged to the Shipping Board, were
owned by oil companies and com
panies transporting such commodities
W. H. Reed, who filed the Sinclair
protest, declared the board bad only
one “clean tanker." and that was
under charter by the Sinclair com
pany. He said that during a eix
month period last year his company
shipped oil in sixty-eight vessels,
only five of which were American.
