Senate Group
Asserts Canol
Plan 'Unwise'
WASHINGTON— T he senate
Truman committee has closed its
inquiry Into the war department's
$130,000,000 Canadian oil venture
with a declaration by Chairman
Truman, D., Mo., that the army
had "failed to Justify this expendi
ture."
Brig. Gen. Walter B. Pyron, the
army's petroleum expert, wound up
the testimony with an assertion
that military necessity dictated the
decision to develop the oil fields
near Norman "in the dark days of
1942."
His testimony, like that of Un
dersecretary of War Robert P.
Patterson, was in sharp contrast
to the verdict of Petroleum Admin
istrator Harold ,L. Ickes that the
whole project "ought to be junked
now." ,,
General Pyron could not en
lighten the committee as to wheth
er the army contemplated an ex
pansion of the pipeline and refin
ery included in the so-called Canol
project.
