Bell may succeed McCarl. Acting Director of the Budget, Daniel W. Bell, is considered a possible successor to J.R. McCarl as Comptroller General. McCarl's 14 year term expires next June. Bell is understood to have refused to take the appointment as permanent director of the Bureau of the Budget because it would cost him his Civil Service status, which he has cherished for 15 years. But the term of 14 years as Comptroller General might influence him to case aside his "career" record. In addition to other jobs, Bell is commissioner of accounts and deposits, a position he held when he was drafted to replace Lewis Douglas, the former director of the Budget. Bell, under Civil Service, draws $10,000 a year. This photograph shows Bell near the fireplace in his office in the Treasury Building

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. Oil well derricks on the beach along the coast of the U.S. Pacific coast state of California indicate how thorough is the seach for oil which has been going on in America for more than eighty years. Some beach wells are drilled straight down to reach oil deposits, but others are drilled at an angle so that oil is being pumped from locations far under the sea. Sometimes the bottom of the well is a quarter mile or half mile from the shore, while surf washes the foundations of the steel tower on which the drilling or pumping machinery is placed. The thoroughness and efficiency of the U.S. oil industry in finding new oil deposits accounts for the enormous supplies produced in America for the modern machines of war. In 1944 according to a U.S. oil company official, the predictable U.S. crude oil total will reach 1,601,250,000 barrels
