DRUMRIGHT, OKLAHOMA. SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1917.
The Gypsy Oil company is drilling
at 3320 feet on the Cezar farm in
the northwest corner of the north-
ast of section 18-19-0.
The Gypsy Oil company is down
810 feet in the second well on the
J. W. Swan farm in 0-21-8. It is lo-
ated one location northeast of No.
1 on the edge of the river, in the
southwest quarter of the section.
NO DANGER OF OVER SUPPLY
Some confirmed pessimists are giv-1
ing out the idea that the garden
movement may be overdone, result- j
ing in unreasonably low prices. Also '
it would be terrible if the world j
should come to an end before next |
fttll and prevent the crops from be-
That there can be an over supply
of substantial foods next winter
seems beyond the range of possi-
bility. The food production of our
allies is steadily falling off, owing to
the increased number of men who
are serving as soldiers and the scar-
city of fertilizers They will take
an enormous amount of farm pro-
ducts if we can only sell them at
Furthermore J'afrtn help In tffts
country has constantly been grow-
ing scarcer. This year had there
been no effort' to mobolize boys and
other helpers, the farmers would
have been left almost single handed.
The emergency labor supply now be-
ing gathered will hardly do more than
supply the gap created by the labor
shortage of the past few years. At
the best, high school and college boys
can't do the work of farm hands that
have du? in the soil all their lives.
Boys are more or less irresponsible
anyway, and even those who are in-
dustrious will be handicapped .by
their ignorance of methods of culti-
Food production is not on a sound
basis if the crops only just barely
equal the total consumption. It is
too much like the landlady who was
noted for the skimp amounts of food
she allotted to her hungry boarders.
After surveying the empty table one
night, every eatable thing having
been consumed, she remarked jubi-
lantly, "Well, I guessed to a bean."
The boarders remained gloomily
silent reflecting that if there had
been twice as much food, the table
would still have been cleared. So
it i3 with the food crop of this year.
Whatever there is will be needed. If
there was ever a chance to make
money on anything, it would seem to
be in food production this year for
the man who organizes it on a sound
UP TO UNCLE SAM
World affairs have reached the
point where it is up to Uncle Sam
to win the world war.
In the concise language of t<he
Frenchman', "There is no more Rus-
sia," at least so far as counting for a
vital, aggressive force in the conflict.
If we in this country have not yet
fully conceived what this fact por-
tends, it is well that? we consider the
situation very seriously. It means
that whereas the central powers have
heretofore maintained an enormous
army of seasoned fighters on the
eastern front, they are now withdraw-
ing these veteran troops and hurling
them in masses upon the French and
It means that under present condi-
tions it is a physical impossibility for
the entente armies to gain even a
It means that the best we can ex-
pect until our own armies are in the
field is a stand-off.
And it means that, unless this coun-
try musters its entire strength in men
and means, and uses that strength to
the limit, the cause of human freedom
will lose the fight and America will
go down in ruins. For with England
and France defeated, or even nomi-
nally victors, and a still powerful
Prussian autocracy spreading itself
over the earth, the future of democ-
lacy will be dark indeed.
If every man and woman in Amer-
ica will get firmly in mind the fact
that we must win this war if it is to
be won; that if it is lost our own
ideals and institutions are in grave
danger, then and not until then will
we be in an attitude to face the task
that is ours.
The God of Hosts can find no use
for the man who, "having his hand
to the plow, turneth back."
AGAIN THE FOOD QUESTION
Once^nore the question of the
world food supply, in which America
is to play the most important part, Is
brought sharply to our notice by these
In 1917 America can supply only
000,000,000,000 bushels of grain.
America and her allies will require
970,000,000,000 from this harvest.
There will be a shortage of 1,700,-
000,000 bushels. What will this
shortage mean? ,
It will mean the strictest conserva-
tion of every class of foodstuff. It
will mean production to the maxi-
mum, and plans for still greater pro-
duction next year.
If means that with the greatest ef-
fort the United States can make in
producing and protecting waste, there
will still be a shortage of foodsur||
to feed the country and her allies
until the 1918 harvest is in.
\ OIL AND GAS *
\ Okla. and Kansas Crude $1.70 %
Despite the fact that the high price
of easing and small tools is hindering
development work in the Drumright
pool the larger companies are pushing
Work with all possible speed. A year
or so ago the Drumright pool was con-
sidered the largest producer of high-
grade oil in the country and with the
promise of the opening of new terri-
tory it will again attract the atten
tion of the operators. 'I he Prairie
Oil & Gas Co. is drilling two wells
offsetting the Holden, Jacobs and
Jackson "lease and the results of this
lew development are being watched
with interest. There are several good
Skinner sand producers inside of this
area and some new work is to be
started. The Uncle Sam Oil Co. is
the owner of these wells and it is un
derstood that the company will make
several new locations and are making
arrangements to deepen the oil wells
to the Bartlesville pay in hopes of
getting a large production. The past
week has shown a good sized well in
the completion of the Cosden Oil &
(ias Co.'s No. 13 on the Sam Barnett
farm in the southwest corner of the
northwest quarter of section 22-17-7,
which struck the top of the Tucker
sand at 2821 feet and at 22 feet in
the pay is flowing 100 barrels nat
ural. The same company drilled in
No. 11 on the Artuse farm, in section
11-17-1, which got a sand from 1524
to 1555 feet and a break and another
sand from 1555 to 1010 feet and the
well was finished up in the Layton
sand, found from 1610 to 1652 feet,
and is making 30 barrels. The Sin-
clair Oil & Gas Co. got a 75-barreI
well in No. 39 on the Keyes farm, in
section 28-17-7, in the 1549-foot
The Cleveland section of the Drum
ritfht pool offers its usual number of
completed wells again the past week
and they are of a sufficient size to
warrant a little increase in the pool's
daily production. The Prairie Oil &
Gas Co.'s No. 4 on the Skinner lease
in section 12-8-4, struck the top of
the Bartlesville sand at 2290 feet and
at 2820 feet is good for 40 barrels.
The same company completed and
shot No. 23 on the Jones farm, in
section 20-21-8, in the Layton sand,
found from 1270 to 1290 feet, and
has a 100-barrel well. In section 21
20-7, the llepublic Oil Co.'s No. 7
Ivhinehart struck the top of the Skin-
ner sand at 2632 feet and at 20 feet
in the pay was shot with 100 quarts
and is good for 100 barrels a day.
The Yale district has come to the
front this week with «oru? of the
largest strikes ever recorded in the
pool with the well completed by the
Aliee-Katherine Oil Co. on the Har-
ris farm, in section 1-19-5. There has
been a large amount of money spent
in this territory and the discovery
of this new well justifies the amount
of drilling that has been done. Fancy
prices have been paid for acreage
miles in advance of the wells that
were drilled by this company during
the time when the Cushing pool was
in the limelight. The sand in the
new well was struck from 3030 feet
and continued to 3167 feet and at
the present time is said to be good
for l'>00 barrels daily.
