Eisenhower Asks Oil Shipments To Europe to Relieve Shortage, Sees Israel Compliance With U.N.

By The ASSOCIATED Press

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6--President Eisenhower called today for a maximum effort to get more oil to Europe--and implied that the federal government might step in if other means fail.

"We must not allow Europe to go flat on its back for the want of oil, if the oil can be provided," Eisenhower told his news conference.

For one thing, he said, he has the power to move into the field of state proration of oil production.

On that, however, he added: "I think the federal government should not disturb the economy of our country except when it has to."

The Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates oil production in the largest producing state, has refused thus far to make major increases in the allowable production. This has been cited by government officials as one reason for the lagging of the emergency oil program for Europe.

Ike Sees Agreement

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6--President Eisenhower predicted today that Israel will comply with United Nations demands she withdraw all troops from Egyptian territory.

He tersely declined to reveal whether this government would join in any United Nations program of sanctions against Israel if the Israeli government persisted in its refusal to withdraw without conditions.

Eisenhower's remarks softened the impact Secretary of State Dulles made yesterday when he told a news conference the United States would "give very serious consideration" to joining in if the U.N. should vote sanctions.

Saud Approves Plan

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6--King Saud of Saudi Arabia personally endorsed President Eisenhower's Mideast proposal today and commended it to the "consideration and appreciation" of his fellow Arab leaders.

Saud expects to reach agreement with Eisenhower this week on extending the pact under which the U.S. Air Force uses the Dharan air base, 1,000 miles south of Russia.
