New Republic;10/3/55, Vol. 133 Issue 14, p14
The article discusses about the role of oil in politics during, after and before former U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower's term. Senator Charles W. Tobey, the New Hampshire Republican was being asked to compare the role of oil in the Eisenhower Administration with his experience during the 1946 hearings on the nomination of oilman Edwin Pauley for Under-Secretary of the Navy. At that time disclosures about the machinations of California oil corporations, big and small, in relation to public opinion, politics and legislation in the state and nation was aroused his moral indignation. Evidence about the complex financial relationship linking Standard of California with several "independents" was introduced.
