'.I PAGE TWELVE DAILY ARDMOREITE Sunday, June 80, Chorus of Bobby Barker's Musical Revue at the Princess All This Week IPX 1 PEL A That production in the Ilealdton field is falling off rapidly is due largely to the scarcity of labor. So many oil-field workers have gone into the army that it has been im possible to fill their places even with green hands; and then, too, there is the added handicap of a scarcity of material. The supply of water for drilling purposes is getting low, especially where surface water is depended on. Nor does the condi tion in the Cushing field seem to be any better in these respects. Little new production is being de veloped in the Ilealdton field proper and many of the old wells have fall en off to an alarming extent. In the Wheeler field the old wells, those that have)been producing for yearj, are holding up, some of them, it is said, doing even better than the in itial production. Whether this is due to better care of the wells or to some peculiarity of the field is a matter ($f opinion, but the fact re mains that, while the Wheeler field wells are not large producers, the production is constant and appar ently permanent. Just what the I 'ox field will de velop into is somewhat problemati cal, but recent operations in the vicinity of Graham arc causing that territory to be looked upon with much favor. In fact, the entire country from Graham to the 2-4, even to the 2-5 country, is looking more promising, and with better condition in regard to labor and material a field may be developed there that will outdo the Ilealdton field in its palmiest days. The success that has met opera tions an sections 24 and 13 2s4w is remarkable; no dry hcles having been drilled in either sectiun. Now locations are being made in sections 23 and 25, where drilling will soon be begun, and these operations will be watched with interest. The Cushing-IIealdton Oilk and Ga Company of Oklahoma City has blocked about 260 acres a short dis tance north of Tatums and an nounce that a test will be started in section 6 ls2w as soon as a drilling contract can be made. It is iii this section that oil and gas was en countered in drilling a water well about two months ago. R. W. Walton and I. R. McCann of Oklahoma Citv are in Ardmore today and will go from here to Ilo mer and 1 alums, where they are interested in oil leases. Dr. H. S. Cox has returned from Miami, where he has been located for some time past looking after the interests of the Ilealdton Lead and Zinc Company. George Parton has returned from the Ranger, Texas, oil field, where he has considerable interests in both acreage and production. William Connally of Oklahoma Citv is in Ardmore todav. Mr. Conally owns several tracts of land in the vicinity of the Wheeler oil field, and also lias some interests in the neighborhood of the Oklahoma l"ox wells. IN THE GARBER FIELD. (By Kay Peters.) (Ardmoreite Correspondence.) Garber, Okla., June 29. There was no shutdown for the big wheat harvest in the Garber district. In fact there was more new work start ed during those two weeks than any during the history of this young field. The farmers had plenty of help for their harvest and, while many of the oil men expressed them selves willing to shut down if the help were needed, there was no call on thm. Each we V sees increased activity since the deep production was found less than three months ago outside of the defined area of the famous Billings pool by the Oil State Pe troleum Company No. 1 on the Barnes farm, northwest 15-23-3 west, six miles west of the Hillings pro duction. Two months later the Au byme Oil Company found the deep sand south of Garber in the south west 7-22-3 west. Within twelve hours of this discovery the Mag nolia Petroleum Company reached deep pay a mile west of the Aubyme well. Eight days later Champlin found the deep sand two milc south and a half east of the Mag nolia well. Twenty-four hours later the Garfieid Oil Company found the deep sand a half mile north of Champlin's well. Champlin Drilling In. I H. H. Champlin of l.nid is drill-i ing in No. 15 on the I'eggs farm, in the southeast corner, southwest 24-1 22-4 west, in the sand picked up at ! 2.13J feet. At this writing it is about two feet in the sand, and at j at a foot in showed for around 150 j barrels natural. The writer be- j lieves that he is in the striy and , that the big pay is 50 feet deeper. , but he is likely to have a big well in the stray, depending upon the! amount of sand he finds. This well j is a twin to No. 1, a Hoy sand or ; 1.100-foot well, and the sreond well i completed in the field. No. 13 on j this farm is drilling at 1.400 feet; 1 No. 19 is drilling at 750 feet ; No. 20 u a ng. j Offsetting Champlin's No. 15, or '. deep-sand well, on the south, the ! Empire Fuel and Gas Company No. j 1J is a nice well in a sand at 1,860 feet. It is on the Hot son farm, j northwest 25-22-4 west, and is: swabbing for about 70 barrels. No. 14 is a rig. j A location east of Houon No. 13 ' the Garfield Oil Company (Sin clair) has a well in a sand from 1,820 to 1,831 feet. The outside casing is being salvaged and, while the well (lows nicely, its worth is not known No, 11 is a rig. No. 10 is drilling at 1,625 feet. Looks Like a Big One. The Garfield Oil Company No. 12 on the Walker farm, in the northwest corner, southeast 24-22-4 west, t twin to No. 10, looks like a b'g one. It touched a sand at 2,120 feet only a few inches. The well tills to the top with oil as it stands and if agitated will make a flow of about 70 barrels and in fifteen min utes will be full of oil again. The outside pipe is being pulled. There is "0 feet of open hole and a liner may be run. It is hard to guess such a well, as there is not enough gas to make it flow steady, but all agree it is a big one. No, 13 will skid the rig, as the 1,395 feet of hole is full of tools. No. 14 is a riff. The same company is plugging back to 1,330 feet in No. 1 on the Whitney farm, northeast 18-22-3 west. On the Belvcal farm, north east 24-22-4 west ; No. 10, after a nine weeks' fishing job, is making a new hole at 1.525 feet. No. 12 is building a rig. No. 13 is shut clown for orders with a bad hole.
