Honoris from the Cement field In-
dicate that the "strike" at the loca-
tion of tho Gorton Trust Wagnor

southwest of section 12-5-9 is the
mosi important happening in the

The top of tho Band was struck at

High Gravity Report.
The feature of this strike Is that
the oil in this well is by far tho
highost gravity product found in the
field to date uccording to reports.
Tho best information obtainable
places the gravity at about 10 to 42.
Tho Gorton Trust has made no state-
ment as to tho graviy however sam-
ples taken from tho well by othors
being the hasis of these reports.
While' tho Gorton company has a
paying proposition in the well as it
stands tho probability Is that they
will go deeper In the. hopo of find-
ing the real pool of oi! for which all
the operators have. been searching.
