All but one of the five individual

Devine entered the finals by virtue
of a close victory over Jack Harrod

Wayne Martin of Oklahoma U. was

In an exhibition bout Harrod was

Cabinet Divided
In Opinion On

Oil Controversy
WASHINGTON, March 24. -(P) --
It was reported in usually reliable
oil circles today that a sharp dif-
ference of opinion existed between
the Interior and Justice Departments
over the advisability of the action
taken by the Federal Government in
obtaining indictments against the
Standard Oil Co. of California, The
Associated Oil Co., three asserted sub-
sidiaries and 41 individuals for al-
leged oil code violations.
It was said that the position
taken by Secretary Harold L. Ickes,
t'he oil administrator, in a commu-
nication with Attorney General Ho-
mer S. Cummings was that he did
not believe that the matters com-
plained of by the Justice Department
constituted code violations.
Ickes declined flatly to comment
in any way today on the return
of the indictments.
Reports were circulated in the Cap-
ital today that Kenneth R. Kings-

My Dear Mr. Connellan:
Your letter of March 8 has been referred to this
office for reply. You are correct in your under-
standing that beer is sold in certain of the Univer-
sity's dining halls.
Our experience of the last six months is that the
availability and consumption of beer has had no
undesirable effect on the habits of our students, nor
has it, so far as we can determine, resulted in an
increase in our disciplinary problems.
The availability of beer in the dining halls has,
further, given rise to practically no criticism or
objection on the part of people who it might have
been expected would oppose it.
Whether or not our dining halls sell beer probably
has no effect on the amount of beer consumed by
the students, since there must be twenty private
points of sale within a quarter mile of the campus.
Rather, the upshot has been that a large proportion
of the beer that our students consume has been
secured by them under conditions that have the
advantage of being controllable.
Yours very truly
Associate Dean
