IPAA Asks Co-op Taxes and End
Of Price Controls for Industry
TULSA—Three resolutions that highlighted the IPAA annual
meeting here last week dealt with co-operatives, with the Anglo
American oil treaty, and need for removal of price controls from
the industry.

Acting on a resolution adopted by
association directors at meeting in
Bradford, Pa., April 28, 1944, dim:
tors at this session resolved that
the association "petition congress
to provide for application of income
tax laws and subject to regulations
of Securities and Exchange commis
sion to all co-operative associations
engaged in production or distribu
tion of goods and commodities, as
distinguished from purely market
ing organizations engaged in mar
keting of own agricultural prod
ucts.
The resolution also called on con
gress to prohibit federal financing
of co-operative ventures in produc
tion and distribution of goods and
commodities. The association went
on record as saying cooperative
corporations or associations engag
ing in business should enjoy no
privilege not accorded to other cor
porations so engaged.,
Another resolution provided that
IPAA recommend to Office
Administration immediate removal
of price controls affecting
urn industry. It was pointed
industry can continue to operate
effectively in public interest if free
play of economic forces is per
mitted.
The third association resolution
urged the senate "to give its af
firmative advice and consent to
ratification of Anglo-American oil
treaty as signed in London, Sept.
.24."

One company that did that was
Empire-Pacific, which began its op

Standard's Devonian producers.
Empire-Pacific was heading for the
Devonian in an initial well and
directors of the concern were pleas
antly shocked when it got produc

has two wells producing

burst sand.)

of the latter, operations were start
ed on another well, known as Na

Recently directors of these con
cerns also received a shock when
National-Empire No. 1, heading for
the Devonian, ran into a flowing
well In the Sunburst sand at 3,278
feet. (The Sunburst had yielded
large gas flow* in some wells drilled
immediately adjacent to the De

Incidentally, according to the Bul

in this area has found gas in com

the Devonian, with flows coming
from the Bow Island, Sunburst,
