Lease Scandal
On Alaskan Oil
Lands Scented
Rep. Pelly Asks Probe
By Interior Chief of
Claim Jumping
(R-Wash) Friday asked Interior
Secretary Seaton to investigate re
ports of claim jumping on Alaskan
oil lands, declaring "we may well
have a national scandal in the
making, rivaling any in our past
"Informational sources available
to me," Pelly wrote Seaton, "indi
cate that one of the biggest
scrambles for leases in our history
is under way in Alaska on a 'winner-take-all,
no holds barred'
basis. ,
"I am informed 'lease sharks'
with connections in every land of
fice in Alaska and through into
Washington, D.C., with batteries
of legal counsel at their disposal,
are busy punching technical holes
in every block of lease applica
tions which have adequate geologi
cal background."
Pelly cited what he said was a
"typical example" brought to his
attention where an application is
filed for a block of 2X1,000 acres.
If the geologist 'behind the ap
plicant is known to be on the pay
roll of one of the major oil com
panies, felly said, the scramble
is on to find a legal or technical
flaw as soon as the applications
arc filed and the land relocation
therefore exposed to public knowl
edge." Pelly continued:
"Then if some clerk in the
Anchorage, Fairbanks or even in
the Washington, D.C.. office of the
Land Bureau decides that the
cartography or legal description
of a few units is not correct to the
last detail, the news and the offi
cial number of the disputed units

GOP Senators Won't
Block Demo Tax Bill
Associated Press Writer -
Republican members of the Sen
ale Taxation Committee strongly
opposed Friday the House-approved
bill to revise personal income tax
rates, but they indicated they
would not block its passage in
the Senate.
Sen. Walter J. Pearson (D), of
Portland, chairman of the com
mittee, said the committee will
send the bill to the Senate floor
next Tuesday morning. It likely
will have the blessing of the
committee's four Democrats and
opposition of its three Republi
cans. At the end of Friday's meeting
of the committee, Sen. Rudie Wil-
helm (R), Portland, said to Pear
son: We'll Supply One'
"If you get 15 Democrats to
support the bill, we'll supply you
with one Republican."
This would indicate that the 15-
15 party split in the upper house
wouldn't block passage of the bill.
The bill repeals the 45 per cent
surtax imposed in 1955, but in
corporates it into the tax rate
structure; increases the $500 per
sonal exemption to $600; and
changes the 2 per cent withhold
ing tax so that all income taxes
would be withheld from salaries.

today he was bringing an abrupt
stop to a program through which,
he said, Oregon's two previous

funds for promotion of a so-called
"partnership" power development.
The action removed Oregon
trom the Pacific Northwest Gov

which Gov. Holmes called an arm
ot the private power lobby.
Gov, Holmes said the records
showed that unapproved reports of
