study of the program and put t&to
effect wherever possible through
the assistance of state authorities.
Such a curtailment as planned he
declared, 1 not tar violation of
the anti-trust law. as the produc
tion of oil is not a matter of in
terstate commerce and therefore
ao subject to federal supervision.
C. B. Ames, general counsel of
the .Texas company and-a repre
sentative of the institute, in
formed the board that the opinion
of the attorney general, "appar
ently p re-supposes a violation of
the law and - makes " our appear

for Immunity from the law.''
"Such is not the case, he said.
"It has never occurred to any of
us that we are not well ' within
the law in our plan and the sug
gestion of the , attorney general
comes as a distinct shock.'
In concluding his opinion the
attorney general had declared
tha "the proceedings of the pe
troleum institute make ,it clear
that its members already jrealiza
that under existing laws such an
agreement could not safely be
made without the sanction of
some officials of the United States
authorised to give it, as I have
