Quarrel With Federal
Executive Wages Ten-Year Fight
to Protect Nation's
Oil Supplies.
(R~v Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 14.-Henry L.
Doherty, head of Cities Service Co.,
in full page advertisements to be
published in newspapers tomorrow,
charges the United States with
"passing the bunk" in conservation
of oil and that meanwhile the na-
tional resources are being wasted.
"I have no fight with our federal
officials who have been afraid to
take a firm stand on this matter,"
he says, "for I doubt they would
have gotten any place in a fight
with a great line of oil barons, but
the situation has now gotten so bad
that many of these oil barons are
themselves frightened, and, I be-
lieve, now is the time to strike."
Asks For Conservation.
In his statement, issued simul-'
taneously with a meeting in Wash-
ington tomorrow of governors of
the oil producing states, he said he
has been trying for more than 10
years to protect the nation's oil
supplies from "needless waste and
reckless exhaustion."
" Perhaps," he said, "there is no
waste in all of the other businesses
combined that equals the waste of
the oil business. What is called
competition in the oil field is not
more competition than is a run on
the bank.
Everyone After Oil.
"In fact, a run on a bank is not
as much cut-throat competition as
in an oil field because all the depos-
itors are trying to get their own
money, and in an oil field the op-
erators are trying to get not only
their oWn oil but everybody else's
"We could not get stabilization in
the oil business because the bigger
and stronger companies did not
want stabilization. They could count
the profits they made from the
constantly recurring periods of dis-
tress when they would buy out first
the little producer and then thel
little refiner at their own price.,

Michigan Patrol Chiefs
Reaffirm Demand for,
Supreme Penalty.
Heads Advocate Other
Legislation at
(y Associated Press)
LANSING, Jan. 14.-Michigai
police chiefs through the execu-
tive committee today went on
record as favoring the death pen-
alty for first degree murders.
Two years ago the enforcing
officers took a similar stand. The
legislature passed a capital pun
ishment bill but it failed to reach
the statute books because it was
vetoedby Former Governor Fred
W. Green. The executive commit-
tee of the Michigan Police Chiefs'
Association, meeting here today
re-affirmed the demand for the
extreme penalty, without a dis-
senting vote. The police chiefs
contend that capital punishment
should be employed against first
degree murderers about whose guilt
there is no doubt and other vicious
criminals. Some members of the
committee said they advocate a law
which would require the supreme
court to pass upon convicted per-
sons before the death penalty could
be invoked.
Vote on Capital Law.
Heads of police departments, who
as members of the committee, voted
on the capital punishment resolu-.,
tion, were C. J. Scavarda, of Flint;
Oscar J. Olander, state comm' -
sioner of public safety; Rock em.
ing, of Kalamazoo; F. F. Alspauh,'
of Pontiac; Peter Hansen, of Mus-
kegon; George Davis, of Bay City,
and Capt. Donald S. Leonard, head
of the state police in the metropoli-.
tan area.
The Wayne County Police Chiefs'
Association recently also went on
record as. favoring capital punish-
ment, Leonard said.
Other Legislation Proposed.
Other legislation recommended
by the police chiefs was periodic
registration of motor vehicle driv-
ers, with the resultant fees to be
used for building up the traffic
division of the state police; estab-
lishment of a crime laboratory in
connection with the state police
where ballistic, chemical and sim~
ilar work could be done for all en-
forcing agencies.

Wilcox, whom Mayor Frank Mur-

on the mayor Tuesday night and
asserted that he will be on the
stump to "tell plenty" when the
campaign in the mayoralty election
begins next fall. Some of the things
he has to tell, he said, he already
has told to the special Wayne coun-
ty grand jury.
Wilcox delivered his sentiments
,about the mayor in two speeches,
the principal one at a banquet of
the Detroit lodge, F. & A. M., of
which he is a member. The mayor,
he charged, "failed to keep his
word of honor."
"As late as last Friday," he as-
serted, "friends of mine were as-
sured by him that I would remain
at police headquarters as long as he
was mayor."
It was on Friday that Mayor
Murphy received a letter from Rev.

the Michigan Anti-Saloon league,
urging the retention of Wilcox, who
Holsaple said, was supported by
