Yar brough, stripped of his position on the Texas Supreme Court, today will face criminal charges that led to his ouster. Yarbrough is accused of forging a car title and lying to a Travis County grand jury about the incident. The prosecution team, composed of Dis trict Attorneys Carol Vance of Har ris County and Ronald Earle of Travis County and assistants Phil Nelson of Austin and John Holmes of Houston, says it will concentrate on the perjury charge. Yarbrough, 36, will be repre sented by former Attorney General Waggoner Carr of Austin. The perjury indictment evolved from a clandestine meeting with former business associate John W. Rothkopf at an Austin motel on May 16, 1977. Rothkopf told officials Yarbrough attempted at that meet ing to get him to murder another former associate. Bill Kemp. Yarbrough was elected to a six- year term on the Supreme Court in 1976, but served less than seven months before being forced out . of Energy depends on industry office by allegations against him. He resigned July 15, 1977, as the Legislature began consideration of a resolution to oust him from office. Two months later, on Sept. 2, he voluntarily surrendered his law license rather than face disbarment proceedings in Houston. yupTn&mba Eddie Dominguez ’66 fQyijv Joe Arciniega 74 Texas Instruments Calculators and Watches Increased U.S. energy produc tion, part of President Carter’s Na tional Energy Plan, hinges on petro leum industry financing, a Texas A&M research report suggests. The study by Dr. Peter S. Rose indicates energy companies’ rates of return may be marginal to the task, considering the risks involved. “Unless earnings are increased to match recent increases in the risk of petroleum exploration and produc tion, the nation may be forced to rely more heavily on foreign oil and gas, on conservation measures, or more likely both, Dr. Rose said. “A number of changes in current U.S. policy would appear to be necessary in order to avoid the least desirable of these alternatives, he said. The report appears as the fifth and final monograph in a Texas A&M University series published )y the Center for Energy and Min eral Resources. Previous studies dealt with the Energy Plan’s effects on oil and natural gas pricing, ag riculture, transportation and elec tric utilities. Remedies discussed are easing regulations on petroleum pricing, production and exploration, and gr eater diversificiation in the indus try’s capital investments. A more at tractive rate of return on petro leum’s capital base, causing additional investment, is seen as the most lucrative source of expansion of petroleum capital. “The industry would require less debt as a source of funds, reducing its risk exposure and possibly its cost of capital. Dr. Rose wrote. Dresser Industries Professor of Finance at Texas A&M and a former financial economist with the Federal Reserve System, Dr. Rose views exponsion of domestic production with increased profit as a capital source, as an essential element in RECORD COLLECTION ALBUM SPECIALS This Week Including These New Warner Bros.

The Rose study, titled “Analysis of the National Energy Plan: The Profitability of U.S. Petroleum Companies,” utilized data from pri vate and governmental sources. All information used is available to the public. His analyses of data between 1950 and 1975, a postwar period, re vealed that shareholders’ equity in the petroleum sector averaged only slightly above that for all U.S. man ufacturing firms. Greatest profitability occurred in the early 1950s. “Between the late 1950s and early 1970s, however, the return to petroleum typically was less than the average return to the U.S. industry as a whole. Petroleum had a 15.6 percent return on equity, compared to 12.1 for all industry and 14.9 for the manufacturing sec tor. If you want the real thing, not frozen or canned ...
