A National Chamber Resolution
No. 77, pertaining to post-war re

unanimously approved.
The secretary brought out the
fact that there was so much mail
arriving each week that the office
was unable to answer all request!
for information about Alaska.
The secretary, A. Polet, said he
was entirely out of pamphlets,
which he has been sending in
answer to these requests and
asked that the chamber make up
another pamphlet or folder to fill
the need. Dr. Morcom suggested
a repeat of one which had much
factual information, which should
fill the bill. The board will look

INSTALLMENT

fornia a few days ago received a
check for SI.9!3.997.59. repre
senting first payment on a settle
ment for its interest in Mexican
oil properties expropriated by the
Mexican Government m 1938.
The total settlement with
Standard of California amounts to
$3,589,158 plus three per cent in
terest from the date of expropria
, tion. The balance of this sum L?
: payable in four yearly install
' ments, the last which will be due
in September, 1947.
i The amount payable to Stan
i
dard of California was agreed
upon by the United States and
Mexican Governments last Sep
tember. At that time the two
governments also agreed upon
settlements of similar claims by
other American oil companies,

OPA RULES
ON TAXICABS
Drivers and operators of taxi
cab services are reminded that
the new regulations adopted by
,the Office of Defense Transporta
tion while slightly modified by a
recent order, are still applicable
in Alaska and must be strictly
complied with if they wish to
maintain eligibility for tire re
! placements.
This is in accord with a state
ment issued today by the Office
i of Price Administration, which
represents the ODT in Alaska for
that phase of its work dealing
with taxicab operations.
Copies of the latest General Or
der ODT 20A are available in the
offices of local boari- through
out Alaska. A digest of the order,
setting up general requirements
for taxi operators has been pre
pared and is being distributed this
week to all taxicab owners in the
Territory.
Principal change in th? regula
tion, the OPA points out. is in the
removal of the 10-mile restriction
clause which prohibited taxi trips
to any point more than 10 miles
from the point of origin. That
has now been made applicable
only to cities having a population
of 10,000 or more. The regulation
permits trips of 25 miles from the
point of origin without special
permit
Taxis must be plainly marked
as such, and cruising for fares or
transporting anyone engaged in an
unlawful occupation remain on
the list of prohibited practices.
Commercial deliveries may be
made only at the request of a li
censed pharmacy or pharmacist,
dentist, physician, hospital or vet
erinarian and deliveries are lim
ited to drugs, medicines, medical
supplies and appliances, it was
pointed out. Taxis are permitted
to deliver telegraphic, cable and
radio communications if no other
means of delivering them in time
to serve their purpose is avail
able; to transport mail at the re
quest of the Post Office Depart
ment of the United States, and
for emergency trips due to acci
dent, sickness, death, public cal
amity or military necessity, even
though otherwise prohibited.
Since, in Alaska, taxicabs are
on the eligibility list for new tires
and tubes, every taxicab opera
tor must sign a statement that he
has complied with ODT regula
tions before new tires or tubes
will be allotted.
It is therefore most essential,
the OPA states, that all taxi oper
ators familiarize themselves with
the requirements of the new ODT
order and follow them carefully.
