April 1952
New Republic;4/14/52, Vol. 126 Issue 15, p3
The article presents information on the developments relating to governances in the U.S. At Washington the U.S. Senate last week voted, 50 to 35, to turn the $40 billion off-shore oil reserve over to the three adjacent states, California, Louisiana and Texas, for frenzied exploitation rather than to ear-mark the resources for improvement of grade, high and advanced education. Well U.S. President Harry Truman will veto this bill. He vetoed a similar bill once before Congress can't get the two-thirds majority to override his veto. As long as Truman is President this state grab can't win.
