PALMER TO OFFER NEW
GULF SHIP MERGER PLAN
Trade Managers Willing to Com
bine, Shipping Board Will Be
New progosals for merging the Gulf
trade routes, now operating to many
sections of the world, under the di
rection of nine managing agents,
were to be explained to members of
the Shipping Board today by Presi
dent Palmer of the Fleet Corporation.
His original recommendations, call
ing for a reduction of nine vessels
from the 104 operating from the Gulf
and reducing the number of operators
to seven, were rejected by the board,
which held greater savings could be
effected through elimination of more
operators and allocation of additional
ships to them.
Fleet Corporation officials indicated
yesterday that two of the three oper
ators of the government tonnage in
the south Atlantic to United Kingdi m
and continental European cargo ser
vice have expressed a willingness to
arrange a consolidation agreement.
The third operator, whose name was
not revealed, has thus far declined to
join forces with the other two. al
though all are said to agree that the
three companies should combine.
President Palmer met yesterday
with representatives of the Barber
Steamship Lines, New York; the Kerr
Steamship Company, New York, and
the Tampa Inter-Ocean Steamship
Company of New Orleans, to consider
the consolidation of the three com
panies’ cargo routes to the far east.
They operate five vessels out of New
York and Gulf ports to China. Hawaii,
the Philippines, Straits Settlements and
