Vol 14 No. 24
Congressman Carl Hayden Receives Enthusi
astic Reception
Last Wednesday night the
Democrat State Candidates
spoke to a large and atten
tive gathering of Holbrook
voters. The meeting was
held in the Pastime Theatre
and Atty. VV. E. Ferguson
acted as Chairman.
Mr. Chas. Howe, who is a
candidate for State Tax
Commissioner made a short
pithy speech, quite in keep
ing with his usual modera
tion and good sense. All
who know Mr. Howe re
spect and like him and he is
a man well fitted for the
duties to which he aspires.
Congressman Carl Hayden
was the speaker of the even
ing who held the audiences
attention most closely. Mr.
Hayden isxieservedly' popu
lar and his speech which
centered around the three
topics of the Soldier Bonus,
the Tariff and the Colorado
River Project was not only
to the point, but was highly
instructive as well. He made
his position on the;e points
unmistakeable and .carried
conviction of the rectitude
of his stand-in behalf of the
soldiers and of all reclama
tion projects, but most es
pecially those near at hand.
There is no doubt that Carl
Hayden is a man who is most
valuable to the State, of Ari
zona and whose return to
his .present office at the com
ing election is imperative if
the voters have the real in
terest of this Commonwealth
at heart.
Gov. Hunt, the last speak
er, said that taxation was
his issue. He also related
an amusing incident of
Diplomatic life in Siam.

Strengthens Holbrook Oil Men's Belief
in Home Field
Several of those interested
in oil have motored to Ship
rock this last week to get
first hand data on the well
brought in there last week.
Among those to make the
trip was Mr. Chas. Cook of
the Adamana Well and ac
cording to his view of the
case the finding of oil
so near and in strata
resembling ours is vastly en
couraging. Mr. Cook has
been very busy out at the
well since his return, and we
have been unable to learn
many of the details of his
Mr. O'Connel, a well
known oil man of our city,
made the trip with Mr. Dick
Greer and brings back very
convincing and heartening
reports. The oil was reach
ed at the shallow depth of
774 feet and after a pene
tration of only two feet in
to the oil sand. The amount
of the flow cinnot be gaug
ed until the completion of
the storage tanks now being
built, and he well has been
capped. But it is thought
it will be large as the oil
rose to the top of a ten inch
hole and overflowed.
Mr. O'Connel says that it
is a very highgradeoil with
a parraiin base and is re
ported to have a specific
gravity of 62 per cent. If
so, this knocks all previous
records. The statement is
made that it can even be
used in an auto without re
fining. The trip was an extreme
ly interesting one and the
men were joined at Gallup
by Mr. Teas, a geologist
from Minnesota who had
come down to look over the
Mr. Greer says that he is
no oil expert himself but
that the general configura
tion of the r gion is such
that he is convinced that if
oil was found there it surely
will be found here.
Geologists have made the
statement that if oil were
ever found near Shiprock it
would undoubtedly be found
here also.
The well which is being
drilled by the Midwest Co ,
a subsidiary of the Standard
Oil, is located on an Indian
Reservation which makes it
very difficult for the aver
age amall company to handle
a lease in this vicinity as a
large amount of money is
required for guarantees etc.

Mr. W. R. Scorse of the
First National , returned
empty handed from a trip to
the mountains last Sunday.
He was accompanied on his
hunt by Mr. Candelaria and
tells us that he intended to
bring back a turkey. He
tried his best. He went1 to
a rancher up there and tried
to buy one but the man told
him that there had been too
many hunters before him
and that he was all out of
turkies for this year!
Mr. Scorse said that , he
did see a bear track and the
more he looked at it the big

himself with merely " sizing
up the tracks.
