Negro Physician At T ri-State Fair In Memphis MEMPHIS. Tenn., Oct. 27 — A pioneer Negro physician was feted here last week at the colored Tri State Fair. Thousands gathered to pay hom age to Dr. M. V. Lynk on the closing day of the fair. Tnbute to him delivered by Dr. B. F. Mc Cleave, president of the Bluff City Medical Society highlighted the day’s program. Lynk, 83, still practices after 63 years in the profession. He graduated from Meharry college in 1891 and four years later was one of the founders of the National Medical Association for Negroes. In 1901 he founded West Ten nessee University, a Medical, Den tal and Pharmacy School in Jack son. The school moved to Memphis in 1907, but closed 20 years later. Official attendance at the fair for one day was set at 24.578. -o Queen Elizabeth Invites Tubman To Visit Jamaica LONDON—President Tubman of Liberia, who is engaged in making state visits to the United States, Haiti and Lebanon, will also in clude Jamaica in his itinerary. This announcement was made as is was learned Queen Elizabeth had ex tended an invitation and it had been accepted by President Tub man. The story behind the invitation is that Gov. Hugh Foot, who has been visiting in England, learned of the proposed Tubman visit to Haiti just two hours flight from Jamaica. r.. 11 11 Yankees Bring Up Howard For 1955 New York — The once-mighty N. Y. Yankees, who got their come uppance from the Negro-laden Cleveland Indians last season, started rebuilding for ’55 by buy ing the contract on Elston Howard, their Negro farmhand,, who was voted the MVP of the Internation al League while working with To ronto. Howard became the first Negro to be issued a Yankee uniform when he worked with the then world champions during spring practice. He was originally brought up from the Kansas City Blues, then shipped off to Toronto for more seasoning, after the Yankees converted him from an outfielder into a catcher. Last season with the Canadians, Howard banged away at a .331 clip, to miss the league batting crown by 2 points. He got 104 hits, in cluding 22 homers, 20 boubles, and 15 triples, and drove in 108 runs. “This is our first move in build ing for the 1955 season, said gen eral manager George Weiss in mak ing the announcement about How ard. To make room for Howard and three other farmhands who were brought up, the Yankees sold outfielder Art Schult and pitcher A1 Cicott of Kansas City. Gov. Foot immediately suggested to the colonial office that he be permitted to invite President Tub man to Jamaica because many emigrants to Liberia are from Jamaica. “Oh no, you cannot do that,” he was told. “Liberia is a sovereign nation and only the Queen may ex tend an invitation to the head of another nation.” Queen Elizabeth was appraised of Jamaica’s desire and promptly i extended an invitation to the head of the African Republic.

Four Successive Wins Puts Xavier In Elite Circle New Orleans, La. Oet. 25 (Spec ial) — Four successive victories without a defeat has placed Xavier University Gold Rush team of New Orleans within the elite circle of the cherished few undefeated teams in the SIAC and the nation. Having enjoyed an off Saturday on October 23rd, the Priestleymen are hard at work attempting to perfect a formidable defensive with tremendous power and deception for the Florida A & M Rattlers of Tallahassee, Florida. This game will be played under the arc-lights in the Municipal Stadium of Jack sonville, Florida on October 30, 1954. Florida A & M University, 1953 champions of the Southern Inter collegiate Athletic Conference are undefeated in four starts to date. The outcome of their intersectional clash with Prairie View College, National champions of 1953, will not affect their conference rating. The expected encounter between Xavier University and Florida A. & M. could greatly affect the out come of the conference race. The Gold Rush team hold victories over Tuskegee Institute, Alabama State, Keesler Field and Alabama A. & M. They have scored 167 points to their opponent’s 25. Though the aerial has been their most effective weapon, the Xavier team is very potent in their rushing game. The first string is composed of four speedy sophomores who have scored 60 percent of their touchdowns on runs greater than 25 yards.

These sauces, made with either meat or mush rooms, give a chance for varied flavor combinations that are highly appetizing. And, of course, the Chef sauce with mushrooms makes it possible to serve real Friday treats, too, when used with fish, rice and spaghetti. ; Both sauces are made of rich, ripe red tomatoes. One is made with lots of hearty, fine-quality beef; the other with generous pieces of choice specially grown mushrooms. Both are skillfully seasoned to bring out taste and flavor. To cook macaroni, spaghetti, rice or noodles so that they are not sticky, use plenty of boiling water, salted. Three quarts of | water in a four-quart saucepan [ is about right for a seven or j eight ounce package of macaroni ! or spaghetti. Cook rapidly until tender, and drain in a colander. Rinse under boiling water and drain again. Lift spaghetti, mac aroni and noodles from the bot tom of the kettle occasionally while boiling to keep from stick ing together. Add the hot Chef Boy-ar-dee sauce to the well-drained noo dles, spaghetti or rice in the kitchen, or else serve it separate ly in a sauce bowl or gravy boat. When you heat the sauce, add water, up to one-half can of water to one of sauce, to make it the consistency you like best. The Chef Boy-ar-dee sauce with mushrooms is delicious with chicken and with fish. The sauce with meat is the kind to choose to mix with rice as a filling for baked stuffed peppers or to matoes.

Mississippi’s oil and gas indus try, 15 years old just last month, today ranks above all other state | industries except the long-estab lished agriculture and timber indus ! tries in economic importance to I Mississippians. Since the discovery of Mississip 1 pi’s first oil field in September of 1939, a new industry has grown up within the borders of the Magnolia State. It is an industry of state wide importance. Some exploration has been con ducted in every Mississippi county, and oil or gas production has been I established in 30 of the 82 pro | vinces. About 25,000 Mississippians re ceive regular production royalties and many thousands more enjoy j additional income from their non ■ productive land in the form of rental payments under oil and gas lease agreements. Well over one I third of Mississippi’s area—more than 12,000,000 acres — is under : lease to oil companies or inde pendent operators. 1 he widely distributed economic I benefits arising from leasing ac j tivity have become sharply evident to central Mississippi landowners, attorneys and chancery clerks over the past three months as spirited lease buying on the strength of the Bolton oil discovery poured over five million dollars in leases bonus es and fees into the area. Estimates of the annual expendi tures of the oil and gas industry in Mississippi, said by E. D. Kenna, spokesman for the local division of the Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association, to be extremely con servative, are as follows: $20 mil lion in wages paid to more than 5000 Mississippians working in jobs related to oil and gas pro duction (does not include marketing personnel); $25 million in lease bonuses, lease rentals and produc tion royalties paid to land and royalty owners throughout the state; nine million dollars paid to Mississippi firms for supplies and services; $25 million spent in the drilling of both exploratory and de elopment wells; and $12 million in /arious types of taxes paid to state and local governments. The total 'investment” of private capital in he exploration for and develop ment of Mississippi oil and gas re ources top one billion dollars. In addition to the taxes normally ; aid by almost all Mississippi busi ess firms, oil and gas producers pay a special production of “sever ance” tax which, at the current . rices commanded by these mip have completely overpowdered all A their opponents to date. Ray Floyd Athletic Publicity Director Oil Storage To Pass Billion Barrel Level ' W ashington—Petroleum storage capacity of the U. S. oil industry by the end of this year will total 1,020,000,000 barrels, according to a report received by the National Petroleum Council. The committee on petroleum stor age capacity noted that this would be an increase of 160 million bar rels since March 31, 1948. The com mittee is an industry advisory group to the secretary of the in terior. Supporting the basic finding of erals, amounts to six per cent of their value at the wellhead. The State of Mississippi and the pro ducing counties share, then, six per cent of the total value of all Mississippi oil and gas production. Since the laws levying those taxes were enacted—in 1944 for oil; 1948 for gas—the state treasury and the producing counties have divided better than $46 million in severance taxes alone. Nearly 4600 miles of pipe lines traverse 74 of Mississippi’s 82 counties. Each mile of these un derground carriers is an asset, for the total assessed valuation of Mis sissippi pipe lines for advalorem tax purposes exceeds that of all railroad mileage in the state. Four processing plants are in op eration within the state, two re fining crude oil and two processing natural gas for the recovery of liquid hydrocarbons. Two addi tional plants of the latter type are under construction. Geophysical exploration activity has increased sharply in recent months and the number of wells drilled in 1954 in Mississippi is al most certain to exceed the 412 dug in 1953. Estimated average cost of drilling a “dry hole” failure in Mississippi is $50,000; of complet ing the average Mississippi produc ing oil or gas well, $75,000. Wells in Northeast Mississippi, and very deep wells throughout the state cost far more to drill—a completed Soso oiler requires about $225,000. A few wells, plagued by Mechanical difficulties at great depths, have cost more than one million dollars. New Interstate Oil Compact Building Nearing Completion In Oklahoma City Oklahoma City—A monument to 1 ;he modern petroleum industry is 1 nearing completion here with the i construction of a new modem of- \ fice building to house the Inter- i state Oil Compact Commission. The ! building is idealy situated (at 900 NE 23rd St.) amid the gas and oil I wells' that dot the state capitol grounds. Dedication ceremonies ; will be held November 16 at which time Johnston Murray, Governor of Oklahoma, will present the keys to the building to Earl Foster, execu tive secretary of the Commission. Hundreds of dignitaries among the 28-member states and industry are expected to attend. Also to attend j are many of the governors of the member states and their official representatives that make up the commission boards. Oil conservation is of prime im portance in Oklahoma and through the interstate organization other oil producing states have become well aware of the service to the in dustry through the education pro gram fostered by the Interstate Oil Compact Commission. The build ing is an outgrowth of 20 years service to these oil producing states and the industry by the Commis sion. The Commission is a combination of 28 states, bound by treaty to stimulate the petroleum industry •through state conservation pro grams designed to develop the use of gas and oil and maintain a con tinuous supply. The Commission itself has no power to regulate any phase of the industry other than the presentation of effective ideas to educate member states and their industry, their need for a conser vation program to protect this most vital natural resource by producing all available oil from each pool. Regulation of the industry is re served by individual state legisla tion and administered through local state agencies. The Compact was formed in 1935 through the combined efforts of the governors of the oil producing states of Oklahoma, Texas, New i Mexico, Kansas, Colorado and Illi- j i nois. The effectiveness of the Com pact is evidenced by the fact that at the end of World War I, the life , of the petroleum industry was esti- \ mated at 14 years. Since that time production and use has more than tripped and there is no im mediate foseeable decline in our known supply. According to Lt. Gen. Ernest 0. Thompson, of Aus tin, Texas, chairman of the Texas railroad commission and a nation ally recognized authority on oil j conservation, this country has pro duced as much as 10-billion barrels of oil through the state conserva- j tion programs that would other wise not have been produced. The industry itself has declared the commission the only effective or ganization capable of continuing this program of enlightment and education that has advanced the j product use of oil, gas and petro leum until it is today used in more j I ways in more homes than any other j product. Since the Commission has been designated as the father of the modern petroleum industry, it is fitting that the design of its new home be in keeping with modern functional design. The building is constructed of Arkansas cherry stone, laid in a stone piling in com bination with cream Roman brick. The interior construction is of rose ■... .. . ' ■ previous surveys, the committee re-; ported that efficient operation of the industry requires storage ca pacity larger than the amount of products moving into and out of storage. It was emphasized that a large portion of total reported invento ries is unavailable for shipment be cause it is tied up in the manufac turing, storage and transportation systems which must be maintained at full levels for proper function ing of such things as pipelines. proven accuracy All watch repair work done here is checked scientifically by the 'Master which prints an accu rate record of the rate of your watch, assuring you that,all work has been properly done.

The building com prises 4500 square feet on one floor »nd was constructed at a cost of $75,000. Construction costs for the new building were appropriated by the Oklahoma-state legislature as a gift to the Commission from the reserve built up in the conserva tion fund by the employment of a tax of one-eight cent per barrel of oil and one-mill per 10-thousand feet of gas produced in the state. The building nestles on a tract of land near the state Capitol build ing with gas-producing and oil producing wells on either side to add emphasis to the Commission’s contribution to the industry the Commision’s 20 year history.

D. Kenna, execu tive president of the Mississippi Alabama Division, Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association. Kenna said that the 4600 miles of gathering, transmission and dis tribution pipe lines in this state were assessed in 1953 for adva lorem tax purposes at a value of more than $85 million. This as sessed valuation is greater than that of all railroad mileage and considerably larger than all elec tric utility installations. “By providing markets for Mis sissippi-produced oil and natural gas, common carrier pipe lines ren der a most significant service. Without these underground arter ies, all of the natural gas and most of the oil found in remote places could not be sold and would there fore be of no more value than if it had never been found,” Kenna pointed out. “The pipe lines began bringing natural gas to Mississippi homes, businesses and manufacturing plants long before gas was discov ered in commercial quantities with in this state. Today, 216 Mississip pi cities and towns receive natural gas through pipe lines. Recent ex pansion of pipe line systems in Mississippi assures that dependable natural gas service will be avail able to meet the needs generated C. S. Announces Iberia Wildcat Bartlesville — Citiea Service hrfs announced the site fqr.a test well, the Granger No. 1 as being 1850 feet south and 1000 feet east of the northwest comer of section 33-1 lS 8E, Iberia Parish, La. The well location is nine miles east of New Iberia, Jjl., and 1 1 /4 miles southwest of nearest pro duction in Fausse Point. Principal objectives are the Miocene sand stones with an expected total depth of 10,600 feet. Cities Service, Falcon Seaboard Drilling Co., George R. Wadsworth, W. E. Walker, Gordon I. Atwater, and John S. Neilson hold an inter est in the project. Cities Service holds controlling interest and will operate. ! by a rapid rate of growth which is ; anticipated in this state for many ! years to come. “Few Mississippians realize that : oil and natural gas pipe lines pass j through 74 of this state's 82 coun : ties, and that these counties, as well I as the state, derive substantial tax revenue from this presence. Pipe lines are seldom noticed, for they are laid under the ground, but they are a vital, integral part of Missis sippi’s growing oil and gas indus try—an unseen partner without which the expansion of Mississippi oil and natural gas production would he curtailed seriously.” Styles Like other fashions, hair styles change too.
