No One ‘Jumped Gun’
Stalling was put on a “gentleman's
agreement” basis, and oil men I
throughout the two pools were unan- j
toious in declaring that no one in- I
tentionally “jumped the gun”—that
[there were no “sooners” as in the |
Alsnious run to the “strip” in 1893.
Despite the rush and bustle of
preparation, there was no confusion j
attending the reopening of the pools.
Approximately 10,000 oil field workers
. and their families had filtered into j
I the territory. Shacks popped up, like
' mushroom villages, overnight. Trucks, |
loaded with machinery worth thous- |
ondt of dollars, thundered into the
area almost unnoticed and prepar- !
, stion for the lifting of the restyic- j
tions went on almost unheeded hy

j triet.
Tho restriction agreement, lifted
I today, was put into effect two years

I Seminole area were running at their
i) peak.

IN tory has been virtually at a stand
f still until a few years ago.
I Two months ago eight or ten wells
I I were drilled, in scattered locations,
Ji under special permits from the
(Seminole field umpire, and prediction
found in these has led oil men to
make highly optimistic estimates of
{ the posible production of the two
(pools.
The area still is restricted, to a
certain extent, ns only two wells are

The territory from whic hthe drill
ing restriction was lifted extends
from the northeast corner of the
Mission area, in section 5-R-fl, south
and west to within about three miles
of Msud. where the majority of the
' wells aro located.

NOTED TENOR I
TO SING ON AIR
Popular Classics To
Be Feature Monday
Over Chain
Giovanni Martinelli, famous grand
opera tenor, and a symphony orches
tra, under the direction of Gennaro
Papi, former conductor at the Metro
politan, will present an hour’s pro
gram of the most popular classical
musie in the General Motors family
party at 9:30 Eastern Standard Time,
on Monday evening, November 19.
Martinelli's career, which has car
ried him from obscurity to his pres
ent positio nas one of the greatest
tenors, is remarkable in that it has
covered less than eighteen years. His
first public appearance as a vocalist
was made December 3, 1910, in Ros
sini's “Stabat Mater,” in Milan, Italy.
A fortnight later, he made his oper
atic debut in “Ernani.”
The next year, while Martinelli was
singing in Ancona, his work attracted
the attention of Puccini, and as a
result of the composer’! interest, the
young tenor was given a role in the
Rome production of “The Girl Of The
Golden West.” Successful appear
ances followed quickly in Genoa,
Naples, Monte Carlo, Brescia, Turin,
Budapest and Brussels.
In 1912, Martinelli made his London
debut at Covent Garden, where he
created a sensation. Since 1913, he
has been a member of the Metro
politan Opera Company. He has cre
sted many roles, and the repertoire
which he is instantly ready to sing
now includes some forty operas—
more than most singers master in a
lifetime of work. Yet Martinelli is
only forty-two.
Martinelli is outstanding not only
in opera, but in his concert work as
well. Moreover, his radio appearances
have proved him as great an artist
in this specialized field as he is in
other musral lines. He succeeds as
do few other operatic stars in pro
lecting his personality over the air.
One prominent critic said. “Martinelli
in a radio speaker is Martinelli in
person.” ...
The General Motors program will

tioral Broadcasting company in New
York over a network of stations.
