Sample text

We regarded Mr . Ickes as unfriendly to our position and we thought his admitted and demonstrated ignorance of oil matters constituted a grave danger since, through Mr . Ickes, the New Deal would act . It is significant now to record that of all the governors invited to the Conference, only one, Alf Landon of my home state, was personally present, the remaining governors having commissioned individuals to be present as their representatives . By virtue of the fact that Mr . Landon was the only governor at hand, he, as the ranking member of the Conference, was made Chairman .

John B . Elliott, California's leader, began, in most polite and respectful manner, to explain to Mr . Ickes our reasons for having made the request for a special meeting with him . As Mr . Elliott warmed to his subject, referring to the sharpness of the oil controversy, he made reference to the packing by the majors of the Franklin meeting which, he stated, had been called as one for independents only . He advised the Secretary of the fact that the resolutions passed by that meeting had been proposed and supported, in fact, by the major concerns and their henchmen .

The original motivating force that created this great and novel experiment was supplied not by the young brain trusters-as many believe-but by the so-called "leaders" of the oil industry, in their drive to enlist the aid of the Federal Government in their struggle to monopolize and to control their independent competitors. It was, in fine, the grandest scheme ever attempted to legalize monopoly and to destroy competition . The codes which followed proved that point-and the very first thing done in the scheme was the writing into the Industrial Recovery Act itself, an abrogation of the anti-trust laws, always the great fear of the monopolist!
