FOR 1,900,000 FEET
First Strike in This Year's
Drilling Proves to be
Strong One.
A large gas well, making 1,900,000
cnbic feet per day, has been secured
by the Monongahela Valley Traction
company on the Veach and Pltzer farm
on Bethel Ron. and In a few days will
be turned into the lines. The big flow
was found in the gas sand.
The well is the first to be had this
snrine as a result of the summer |
drilling program, but it Is expected
that ethers will be secured from time
to time.
Drilling has been-started on the Lewis
Tennsnt farm on little Paw Paw
creek, opening up an entirely new
field. If a good strike-is made on this
k-cation it will-probably mean that several
other wells.willtbe started there
soon...

FOR PAPER SUPPLY
Federal Trade Commission
Asks for Emergency Legislation
to Enforce It.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, J|me 13?Porting
of newsprint paper productions and
important ones under a government
agency for distribution to publishers
at a price providing for a fair profit
to manufacturers, was recommended
today by the Federal Trade Commission
in a report on its Investigations
of the paper industry, conducted during
the last year.
The commission also suggested that
the government seek to induce Canadian
authorities to establish a similar
agency to cooperate with the American
nooL In a. letter transmitting
a report to the Senate which ordered
the investigation the Commission asked
for emergency legislation to make
the recommendation effective.
The voluntary arrangement with
manufacturers several months ago for
ere at moderate prices was abandonthe
distribution of paper to publish
ed, the Commission reported, and the
plans failed because no government
authority for enforcement exists.
The situation is serious and likely
to reach a panic state In a few months
because of lack of sufficient competition
among, producers said the commission.
