Sinclair Say Its Too Cheap.
Harry l Sinclair president of tin
Sinclair Consolidated Olt Corporation
who Ls -oui-ldereil one of the bes: post-
ed authorities In the petroleum world
looks for higher rather than lower
price. "However quotations never
will be hlch enough" he wiy.s "so
that the business dependent upon oil
uch as those relying on Internal com
hustlon englces cannot exist." In nn
Interview he further said; 'There Is a
general misapprehension about the in-
crease In oil price. During the war
there was practically no advance In
petroleum product and since then the
(3crase has been surprisingly small.
when tonipurrd with other Important
commodities. Now I shall soy some-
thin which may not odd to my popu-
larity but which none the less Is com-
mon wne. The public has been odn-
rated wnirgly. Oil ha been too ch?ap
This has led to waste. Oil bough
cheaply to held cheaply. The public
treated It cs If It had slight Intrinsic
value. It lost respect for It beeaus
It was too cheap. The millions of gal-
on wasted because of this low price
never can be recovered."

No Change Now.

cast could hardly have been made by
any oiu familiar with conditions un-

to ci ntluue ou n big scale and It
Is a proh'tiii just when production will

to tell you that oil Is one of the few-
things tha' has not advanced to any

Douglas IJeardsley remarked: 'It Is

prices will at least be maintained
while there Is a possibility that they
may go higher."
