Switch Back to Coal
As Oil Grows Scarce
Ey th» Associated Press
NEW YORK, May 24.—Some in
dustrialists and home owners who
ran away from John L. Lewis’ coal
miners a few months ago are run
ning back again for winter assur
ance against a growing fuel oil
shortage.
The specter of empty fuel ofl
tanks this winter is considered so
real by one big Eastern marketer
that he is quoted as considering
non-renewal of industrial contracts
‘‘so that preference can be given
to purchases for home heating.”
To ease the situation. Standard
Oil Co. of New Jersey has changed
over Its big refinery at Bayonne
from oil to coal, freeing more than
1,^00 barrels of fuel oil dally for con
sumer needs. The refinery is said
to be operating at 120 per cent
capacity and is attempting a further
increase. '
Demand Above Wajtime’s.
Elsewhere refineries operated by
! Standard of California and other
! companies are said to be consider
ing a switch to coal.
The American Petroleum Institute
! said that the demand for petroleum
products was nearly 20 per cent
| UUUVC wniiuuc
It said part of the increase could
| be traced to the wider use of tractors
l and mechanized equipment by farm
■ ers for the spring ploughing.
The basic cause, however, was said
by leaders to be Inadequate refineries
land pipelines, overworked by the
j war and stymied since V-J day by
j material bottlenecks.
Because of strain or working too
long at over-capacity, a number of
i refineries have temporarily ceased
j operation, reducing daily production
I by about 200,000 barrels, the inst*
jtute said.
i Urge* Stretching of Capacity.
i New refining and transportation
' facilities are under construction but
it will be more than a year before
I they can contribute to the general
supply, ft Jersey Standard spokes
man said.
In Washington, Russell Brown,
general counsel of the Independent
Petroleum Association of America
said he believes it is necessary for
the oil industry to “stretch our
producing capacity a little farther.”
“Perhaps, as during the war, It
will be necessary to make tempo
rary sacrifice of conservation stand
ards and produce at greater than
the maximum efficient rate," he said
in a letter to B. A. Hardey, associa
tion president.
“It may be that after careful study
we will find it best to temporarily
reduce the amount of oil now being
exported. _ • .
“Thus, If there is a refinery that
can crowd in a little more crude
to make up for idle refinery capacity
elsewhere, the crude oil will be avail
able for that purpose.”
“Spot” Shortages Cited.
Constructive efforts of the entire
oil industry are needed, he explained,
to alleviate "spot” shortages of
petroleum products in some local
ities which, he said were due to a
refinery strike, desti action in plants
at Texas City, Tex., in the recent
fire, and by shortages in steel and
transportation.
But, he warned, a crude shortage
my develop if "conditions are not
corrected.”
He added:
“Producers have repeatedly warned
that there must be field develop
ment of the very greatest order to
rebuild the crude oil producing
capacity.” .
Marriage License
Applications
Under D. C. laws couples must
apply for a marriage license on
one day, w t three full days and
receive the license on the fifth
day. Sundays and holidays are
counted the same as other days.
