"We must do away with everything that is non-easentfal. The
deman as on the oil producers today e ceed the supply by about
710,000 barrels a day. I am most
heartil against the proposed 2
Cent tx on a gallon of gasoline.
Glasoli e is no luxury. Statistics
prove hat less than 16 per cent of
the g oine used is for pleasure

Presi ent Byrne wis sarcastic in
his rote enees to the oil refiners. He
said in art:
"Wh t are the refiners doing for
us? 0 r existence seems to be of
little oment to the refiner now
beca he finds a ready market.
If we cannot buy commodities at
such price as will permit us to
handle theon at a profit, we must
4ntim tely succumb, and if we give
ip t.h fight, what of the refiner?
