Just before the mid-day break a rumor waa .circulated and was given considerablecredence, to the effect that a banker who had just returned from Washington, had reported to his. friends that the president had declared that his view as to the railroads had not changed and that he saw no reason to change them at this time. For several days Wall street has taken the view that the recent heavy declines in securities had not been with effect in Washington and that a modification of the attitude of the president and the Interstate commerce commission toward the great trunk lines might be looked for."

1/19/1909 " HOW AMERICAN SHARES ARE HELD. It would be quite easy to misinterpret the statement telegraphed from New York as to the largest London holders of American Railroad shares. Large blocks of Common stock are attributed to Messrs. Rothschild, Messrs. Baring, Messrs. Leon Brothers, Messrs. S. Japhet and Co., Messrs. Raphael and Sons, Messrs. Hoggins and Clark, the English Association of American Bond and Share Holders, and Mr. Robert Fleming. Such a statement is, of course, just what might have been expected, but it would not be inconsistent with another statement that Messrs. Rothschild or any of the other people mentioned do not hold a single dollars worth of American Railroad Common stock. The great bulk of the stock is, of course, registered in the names of these financial houses and sold by them to the real owners whose names never appear.

"2/1/1960 Major Oil Firms Face Court Fight TULSA, Okla. (AP)-The government launches its courtroom fight against 29 major oil firms today. They face criminal charges they violated federal anti - trust laws by conspiring to regulate oil and gasoline prices. Presidcint over the non - jury hearing is U.S. Dist. Judge Royce H. Savage. For the government (here are five attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department's antitrust division, with help from U.S. Atty. Robert S. Rizley of Tulsa. About 90 attorneys are lined up on the defense side. The oil firms—10 of them with! individual assets in the billion dollar bracket—are accused of conspiring to "raise, fix and regulate" the price they paid for crude oil and got for gasoline in 43 states. The indictment charged the firms conspired sometime in 1956 and through January 1957 a period that covers the Suez Canal crisis when flow of most oil shipments from the Middle East was halted. Each company, is convicted can be fined a maximum of $50 000 £. for a total a $1,450,000."

"...government charges that Standard Oil (New Jersey) and its Esso subsidiary sold products lo Kentucky Standard under an agreement that they would not compete in Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and Florida, and the Kenlucky company would not compete outside that area."

2/21/1960 "Executives Hail Tulsa Ruling HOUSTON (AP) — Oil executives believe their anti-trust suit victory at Tulsa was a Victory for business in general. They believe even professional men such as doctors may benefit from the broad ruling which Federal Judge Royce H. Savage acquitted 29 oil companies of price fixing conspiracy charges. The reasoning behind such thinking is the ruling possibly will prompt the justice department to proceed more cautiously before filing similar actions in the future. FILED HASTILY Oilmen do not question the government's authority and responsibility to act in anti-trust matters. But they believe a number of actions against oil and other industries have been filed hastily and without adequate study of all factors involved. One executive surveyed possible effects of the Tulsa ruling and said: "Protection is one thing but harassment is quite another." He said the circumstances of the Tulsa case s h o u l d prompt olficials of all industries to take a more active interest in governmental affairs —and politics. ...Augustus C. Long, board chairman of Texaco inc., ex pressed hope the Tulsa decision of last Saturday will cause the government to "proceed in a more responsible manner before placing such unwarranted criminal charges in the future. COSTLY VICTORY Oilmen look upon Savage's ruling as complete vindication of the industry's competitive marketing practices. But they say the victory Was very costly. Hundreds o£ thousands of dollars were spent while preparing a defense that was not needed in court. Also, the industry fears !t has suffered inestimable damage from adverse publicity over since an Alexandria, Va., federal grand jury returned an indictment against29 companies on may 29, 1958.. .. TRIAL ONLY 10 DAYS Instead, the entire case was settled in 21 months. The trial itself required only 10 days. Texaco, inc., and Standard Oil co. of California won a marathon case last year. Federal attorneys had accused the two companies and four subsidiaries of overcharging the government for Middle East oil purchased in 1951-1952 and resold to foreign countries under the Marshall plan. Last Aug. 19 the U. S. Court of Appeals in New York city held that the prices financed by the economic co-operation administration "were In fact the lowest competitive market prices." The ruling upholding a lower court's dismissal of the case came Just three days short of the seventh anniversary of the indictment,"

"After Savage moved to Pittsburgh, he became Ihe immediate superior of Claude Wild, Gulf's Washington lobbyist who was siphoning hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Nassau slush fund and delivering the cash to dozens of Washington politicians. More than $12 million was drained from the fund and delivered to politicians here and abroad. Thus. Royce Savage, prominent lawyer, general counsel of a major corporation, and former federal jurist, became the superior of a scheme of corrupt business practices that the 298- page report said were "shot through wilh illegality." The Gulf Oil story, told and unto l d in the 298 pages, demonstrates well enough that "corrupt business practices strike at the heart of our moral code." Yet, Ford's committee is not examining Gulf's disclosures, much less Gulf's undisclosed use of a federal judge. The White House and Congress do nothing about the corporate bribery scandal because to do something would be to admit that it takes two to bribe. " ( 1976 by The Chicago Tribune)

Rob Morrow -"During his presidency of the Union Bank, that institution had one of its most progressive periods. It grew in assets from $29,404,000 in 1961 to $97,- 136,000 by Jan.l, 1973. Its deposits rose from $26,687,000 to $88,832,800 in the 12-year period, and in that same period it opened six branch banks in Kokomo. Morrow said he regrets leaving Kokomo because of "the fine friendships and associations I have enjoyed here and the splendid support and cooperation I have had from the staff and directors of the Union Bank." But he said the opportunity to head the Lincoln National, one of the best known banks in the nation, is one he could not reject. He met with the directors of the Fort Wayne institution Thursday and accepted their invitation to become the bank's president. Morrow came to Kokomo in March, 1961, from Sullivan, Ind., where he was president and chief executive officer of the Sullivan State Bank. He has had a career of 36 years in banking, dating back to 1936 when he started in his father's bank at Wyoming."

"Murchison's far-flung operations were made possible by the 27.5 per cent oil depletion allowance which puts him and other oilmen in a more favored position than other taxpayers. They can use their money to influence political thought and dominate industry as most taxpayers can't. This oil depletion allowance, incidentally, is one of the major loopholes in the tax structure which President Kennedy did not recommend plugging when he sent his recent tax message to Congress."
