SATS "OIL SPRINGS' ARB WORTH NOTHING Frankfort, Ky. Jan. 14. Per sona who put their money and faith in oil ventures founded on so-called "oil springs" that are common throughout certain sections of Ken tucky might as well sink their cash In a river and forget about it, ac cording to Prof. WR. Jillsun, Ken tucky state geologist. Theae springs , In ninety-nine cases out of 100, he said are not indications of commer cial oil, but rather that there is none in the region. Prof. Jillson's statement was prompted by a story of some oil springs in Allen county, which it j was said a company had purchased and. planned to develop. "There are many oil springs in the blue grass region of Kentucky," said Prof. Jillson. "But the oil Is not of commercial value because valuable volatile constituents which industry seeks have evaporated. The 'oil' that remains is merely a tarry residue of little or no com mercial value. Oil springs are no indication of commercial oil in 99 out of 100 cases. They merely show that the cap of an oil pool has been broken or worn down by erosion and in practically every case the important constituents have evaporated, leaving nothing of .commercial value, I 1 ..'.XonR.. of the Important oil fields oI tne country has been discovered Jn thg way- In virtually every in- stance tne digc0very has been made only through drilling and through scientific indications In the that overlay the pools." rocks SOCIETY WILL DANCE DE SPITE HARDING'S PLAN Washington, Jan. 15.
