0'Mahoney Has Plan To Spur
Development of Oil Resources
Of interest to Wyoming and Montana operators is the three-point
program of Wyoming's Senator Joseph C. O'Mahoney to spur de
velopment of the nation's oil resources, as reported by Ray Tucker. "
in the syndicated column, "National Whirligig." Says Tucker:
"Senator O'Mahoney has a three
point program designed to regain
for the United States the leadership
it once enjoyed in the production
of petroleum.
"He has obtained appropriations
for the Bureau of Mines that will
permit this agency
ments in wringing
coal and sand deposits. Many ex
perts pooh-poohed this process as
too expensive, in view of more ac
cessible supplies, until Hitler dem
onstrated that synthetic fuel is a
great military asset.
"The Wyoming statesman has in
troduced a measure providing that
any oil fields found on the conti
nental shelf shall become federal
property. The so-called continental
shelf extends a hundred miles from
American shores, and explorations
indicate that it is rich In petroleum.
"Mr. O'Mahoney has also ad
vanced a revision of the mineral
laws to provide greater Incentive
rs in tapping the
lions of oil acres in the public
maip. He proposes lower royalties
to prospectors, an increases of the
acreage which they may explore
and more generous option terms."

IN CONRAD WILDCAT
BAD FISHING JOB
Wildcat of the Pilot Production
company a few miles north of Con
rad in Pondera county has a very
bad fishing Job. A bit and part of a
broken stem is in the hole (pre
viously bottomed at 2615) and the
red beds have caved on them. They
were grabbed with a fishing string
but efforts to Jar them up have
failed, due to continued caving.
