A live broadcast from the Shell Oil Terminal dedication in Searsport, Maine, October 17, 1951. Several representatives of the Shell Oil Company offer remarks, including Charles Tremble, William Ramsay and James Jordan. These representatives mention that events are a part of Oil Progress Week, and offer the slogan, "Petroleum Means Progress."
Maine Senator Owen Brewster was in attendance and was asked for comments on the oil industry and for his opinion on what some political observers had described as Taft's premature announcement of his candidacy for president.
