REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(DC) Mbrs. Govt's. Oil Policy Committee hear discussion for mandatory controls. Major oils companies would supply equally to independents and own stations. [Independent distributor Arthur SOULE - believes heating fuel shortage most critical.] [Independent distributor James EMISON - states major companies worked hard to prevent shortage.] [Congress Donald RIEGLE - argues oil companies now need foreign help; year ago companies said domestic refineries could meet oil needs.] Environment and fuel shortage needs may collide. If pollution standards lowered, fuel supply will increase.
