IN BALKAN OIL
(By Ferdinand J. Bing United Press
Vienna. (By mail.) In view of
tlie general shortage of coal here the
question of the production of other
fael has again become extremely im
poitant. Special attention in finan-
cial circles is being paid to oil 'and
petroleum which eastern Europe
used to produce in abundance.
The exportation and the equal and
judicious distribution of the material
however is 'rendered particularly dif-
ficult today by the exceptionally
grave politiiul situation of the pro-
ducing countries as well as by tin-
'devastations of which this territory
was Ithe theater. This refers above
all to tli r oil wells of Galicia and
rtoumanif while the oil occurrences
of Baku on the Caspian sea and
Kerkuk-Ohanikin still deserve the
greatest Attention in the far east.
The extraordinary abundance of the
latter's products was one of the 'prin-
cipal reasons why the British naval
craft was reconstructed for oil heat-
ing. While tin petroleum and oil pro-
duction ol Asia is more or less in
British handy already there ought
to be a good opportunity for 'the in-
vestment of American capital in Ga-
licia and Roumanla. American busi-
ness interests "however must te
aware of the fact that one of the
niiOKt urgent and indispensible tasks
in regard to rational exploitation of
the oil wells in that aprt of the world
will bo their reconstruction aiming
at bringing about Ithe pve-uwr 'stand-
ard of production. While IV.e output
of mineral oil in Galicia which con-
(ered in Drohobycz and tho neighbor-
ing territories was very great in
normal 'times a considerable nuralicr
of wells have been choked and de
vaslMed during the course of Ithe nu-
merous "battles which took place
there 'between the Russians and the
Austrians; even after the armistice
snd rigilit now lihis territory Is the
subject of dispute "between the Polos
and the Ukranians; the wells are
partly in British and partly in Amer-
ican and Austrian 'hands.
As to the Roumanian oil wells a
considerable part of these is not new
in working order which is chiefly
due ito the military measures taken
by the allies Ut the time of the Ger-
man advance in Roumania. Although
General Falkenlliayn's experts devot-
ed' particular attention to the recon-
struction of the destructed wells

success and it will take U long .pe-

Roumanian oil fields again Ho their
pre-war importance. The Roumanian
government is trying hard to achieve
results in this respect and Is report
ed to Wwe lately concluded a con
vention . with the Austrian govern-
ment whereby Ithey are to supply the
Austrians wtih petroleum and other
material of primary necessity in ex-
change for industrial products.
There is an exceptional opportuni-
ty at the .present (time for American
capital to tiake an increased active
interest in the oil production of
eastern Europe; an activity of Ithis
kind on the part of the United States
would be very much facilitated first
by the exceptionally favorable rates
of exchange for American coinage in
those countries and second by the
marked readiness of the peoples and
governments concerned to co-operate
with America and to profit of her ef-
ficient business organization. .

There was great doings iii Chick-
asha this morning. More excite-
ment was in the mir than for .many
moons past. A car of coal arrived
'n the city and everybody wanted
some of it.
Tho Chickasha Ice and Cold Stor-
age company was advised that car
of Alabama coal was ready for de-
livery by the railroad some tliro to-
day. The news spread r-ver the city
like wild fire and f.ie te'ephoui of

Wood Saved Day. i
"Wood and the spirit of the
Chickasha people who can do so to
get it lias saved the situation" said
Mr. Comer. "Mad it not 'been for
the prompt response of the wood

seen much suffering. As It is the
municipal yard has been able to ac-
cumulate a surplus that would tide
the city over in case of a severe
bliazard that rendered It impossible
to get into the timber for la few days.
"The wood cutting must continue
however. That point cannot be
stressed too much. The miners are
reported to be going back to work
but there is no immediate relief in
sigil.t through the procuring of coal."
Cold Wave Arrives.
The hopes that the extremely cold
weather had shifted to other parts
was blasted yesterday evening when
the wind whipped up fromi the north
and brought a pretty fair sized bliz-
zard with 'it.
Tlliere was no snow but a steadily
lowering thermometer resulted. The
lowest point the -mercury reached last
night according to the local govern-
ment station was seven degree?
above zero which is but two degrees
higher than the low mark this year.
