Senate Sub-Committee to Discontinue Efforts Until After November
The investigation into the gasoline situation, particularly with reference to fluctuating prices, which is being conducted by a sub-committee of the Senate Committee on Manufactures, will go over so far as committee meetings are concerned until after the general elections in November.
In discussing this action, Gilbert E. Roe, special counsel retained by the sub-committee to assist in the investigation, said it had been decided to hold no more meetings before the election, due to the fact members of the committee are anxious to spend the time at their homes during vacation of Congress. An effort will be made to hold a meeting of the sub-committee shortly before congress convenes. From that time on, according to Mr. Roe, all energies will be directed towards winding up the investigation and preparing a report.
Replies to questionnaires set out by the committee to oil companies continue to come in, and these are being digested as rapidly as possible, and the information thus obtained made available for the committee members.
