In liberating France from the socialism of Hitler, it now appears
that the Allies have cleared the way for more of the same medicine,
only administered by different political doctors. In other words,
government dictation over the industries and people of France may
be continued. This is the opinion of a responsible spokesman of the
American oil industry now visiting the European warfronts.
After pointing out that the threat of socialism may delay rehabil
itation of French industry because foreign investors, principally
American and British, will hesitate to risk savings in a country
where the whims and exigencies of politics may wipe them out, the
same spokesman warns: "The average oil man and the average
American has considered that he and his domestic business were so
remote from foreign affairs that he need not pay attention to them.
But here in France a decision is going to be made that can soon,
perhaps, be cited against the American oil man's own business. If
the various dominant French groups pursue their present trend and
place stricter and more complete control over the oil industry in
France with the knowledge and even the acquiescence of the U. S.
government, then how soon will the American oil man be told by

Excerpts from the diary of a fe
male voyager:
Monday. "Was flattered to be
placed at the captain's table."
Tuesday: "Spent the morning on
the bridge. The captain seems to
like me.
Wednesday: "The captain's pro
posals are unbecoming to an officer
and a gentleman."
Thursday: "The captain threatens
sink the ship if I do not agree
to his proposal.
Friday T have saved 600 lives."
A young banker picked up
telephone in his office: ''No,'
id. "No, no, no. YES. No, no."
With a final explosive "NO," he
hung up.
The head of the firm, who had
been listening, asked him sternly.
"What was the idea of saying 'yes*
to that fellow?"
"I had to, boss. He asked nie if
I could hear him."

The bodies must be cleaned and

"All right back there?" shouted
the bus driver.
"No. Wait till I get my clothes
on!" replied a feminine voice.
So the driver led the stampede to
the rear and watched a girl get on
with a basket of laundry.

various people in his own government, of the alleged
French ownership or ojperation of the oil industry?"
How much longer, with the tragedy and devastation of autocratic

'beauties' of
government spread mutely at their feet, will the peop
continue to look to such government for leadership?
"Anyone can start something. To sprint the first lap of a cham
pionship mile—to write the first chapter of a book—to buy the first
war bond or dig the first victory garden—to give your best during
the first part of a war; those things are easy. The flags are waving
and the crowd is cheering at the start. There is a thrill about begin
ning. And then what?
"Then the grind begins, the wear and tear, the weariness. The
runner's chest tightens and his legs drag. The bond buyer feels the
pinch and the gardener's hands blister. The worker in the plant
finds the days hot and his job suddenly monotonous.
That is the grind, the time for what the army calls 'sweating it
out,' the time when the quitters quit and even the champions slow
down, when it is hard to hang on and keep plugging. It is the time
when races—and wars—are won.
"We—all of us—have been going through the grind. We have all
felt the pressure. We have been disheartened by failures . . . tired
by constant effort. Now, like the runner, we are getting our 'second
wind.' The worst of the grind is past. Victory is ahead. We see it.
We know it can be ours. We know that if we use our second wind
with determination, nothing our enemies do can defeat us. We can
not lose now, unless we beat ourselves by easing off when the goal
is in sight. '
"Let us pledge ourselves now to use our second wind to the ut
most, to buy every bond we can, to help on every front of the war
effort, to tackle every production job as though it were the first
one. Above all, let us pledge ourselves to stay on the job—every man
and woman, every day and every hour—until we finish what we
have so well started, until complete victory is won.

To R. G. Greene, resident geo
logist of the Union Oil Company of
California, went the 160 acres in
the Sweetgrass Hills a few miles
south of J. H. Hamilton's produc

Greene's acreage is the E>4 SW%,

Southeast of the leases taken by
the Texas company in the Kevin
area, Texaco has two isolated pro
ducers completed last year, one on
the F. A. Newman lease, the other
on the A. E. Porter lease. There are
also some gassers in the area, which
has had but very little drilling.
The time to have made money from the high stock prices
that preceded the 1929 crash was of course not in 1929, when
most stocks were priced far above their actual values. The
time to have done the buying was in 1925 or before, when
prices were still low. It is easy now to see that. But seeing
it now doesn't do anyone any good.
The only way to profit from a study of what happened
in 1929 is to find a roughly parallel condition. It might be that
now is the time to buy stocks. We don't know.
We do know, however, that now is a good time to con
sider making Montana oil investments, preferably in oil royal
ties. We say oil royalties because these may be bought reason
ably now, held tax-free through the years, with perpetual title. |
And because actual development is still to come in Montana.
Only 35 wells in 100,000 square miles of petroliferous area
have so far drilled through the Madison lime in this state.
When production follows deeper drilling, prices will soar. The
