NEED FOR MORE CRUDE EMPHASIZED
The total demand for all oils is continuing at a much higher
level than was originally anticipated, and, consequently, the demand
for domestic crude oil may be sustained at the rate for the first
four months in the second and third quarters of 1946.
Preliminary data for the first quarter of 1946 indicate a total
motor fuel demand of about 172,000,000 barrels—about 92,000,000
barrels or 20 percent greater than the total demand in the first
quarter of 1941. A rough approximation shows that this increase
can be attributed in about equal proportions to exports, to auto
motive use, and to military and other non-automotive uses combined.
The bureau's forecast of total motor fuel demand for the second
quarter of 1946 is about 200,000,000 barrels or 11 percent greater
than in the same period of 1941. About one-half of this expected
increase in demand is in exports and the other half in non-automo
tive demand chiefly for agricultural uses. Military purchases and
automotive uses are estimated as being about the same as in 1941.
It should be noted that virtually no new purchases of 100 octane
aviation gasoline are included as military requirements during
the first half of 1946 will be met from stocks in military custody.

Badger Says—
A young woman who had mar
ried a traveling salesman decided
to raise chickens. When the hus
band returned from his trip he
asked how the chickens were doing.
She said with pride: "Oh, fine—I
have five hens and two roosters."
The salesman was puzzled. "I
don't understand why you have
two roosters with only five hens."
"Well," his wife explained, "I
got an extra rooster so the hens
would still have one in case the
other took to the road."

The aggressive wife of a meek
little man was taking her husband
apart one day. While she was rav

the doorbell rang and some friends
came to visit them.
The little husband sat In dejected
silence and listened to his wife and
friends talk.
Suddenly, during
conversation, his wif

"No, sir," said the Negro de

"Your Honor," said the defendant,
"I've been away from the South for

"Was your mother scared by a

"No, but I think my father was."

The Pure Oil Company is to be commended for its
courage in plunging into an uncharted wilderness, in locating

With enough cash to drill a test hole in the region would
normally be considered independently wealthy.
It is interesting to note that the Pure thinks enough of
the area to risk a substantial fortune on a single hole in the
ground. But it is not surprising. It is typical of what is to
come, in increasing tempo, as operators move in to drill In
Montana's wide open spaces, still untested.
Now is a good time to inquire about participating i
