OIL TERMS AND WHAT THEYHEAN EROSION Wind, the ac tion of water through ages of time, the bergs of the glacial period and various other similar causes have, in places, worn down the outer layers of the earth, leaving portions of deep ly ing strata exposed. Top3 of anticlines are eaten down and synclines are sometimes superfiically filled up, but the. exposed strata shown after the inroads of erosion are a great help to the geo logist. OIL RESERVOIR OR OIL POOL These are not vast under ground caverns filled with lakes of; oil as they are us ually pictured in the mind of those inexperienced in oil geology. They are simp ly portions of strata whose body is made up of sand of varying degrees of coarse ness, dolomite lime or other rock of porous nature. The oil fills all these minute spaces between the grains of sand or the tiny cavities in the rock and when these are thoroughly filled the sand is in what is known as a state of saturation. WHY IS OIL FOUND IN HIGH SPOTS ON ANTICLINES INSTEAD OF AT THE LOWEST IN SYNCLINES Oil is sometime found in a synclines but the reason for its more usual location at the top of folds, closure, domes, etc. is in response to a simple chemical law. Pour oil on water, even mix it thoroughly with water, and still in a short space of time the oil, because of its speci fic gravity, will rise to the top of the water. In the underlying sand, lime, or rock strata the water seeks the lowest level, oil natural ly rises to the top of the water so is found in the highest parts of the curving strata. Gas being lighter and more volatile than eith er water or oil, rises above the oil and is often apparent first. HOW WAS OIL FORMED There are three well defined theories. First It is of inorganic or chemical origin. Some scientists say that it may have been made by the ac tion of hot water on calcium aluminum, iron and other carbides. This is a theory supported by chemists but NOT by many - geologists. Others who believe in its inorganic origin claim that it was made from limestone, gypsum and water under heat and pressure. Still others claim it to be the re sult of volcanic gas escaping far below the earth's crust and condensed by pressure As a labratory theory this is plausible but does not carry much weigh with a practical field geoloist as there are so many things it does not ex plain. ' Second-the organcic theo ry or tne Dener tnat on or iginated from the decompos ing animal or vegerable re mains of ancient ages. The animal theorist claims that it is produced from the de cay of ancient sea animals such as fish, oysters, scallops mollusks and coral and still others by a most minute sea animal called forarainifera ineirDoaies iorm oeas a hundred feet in thickness altho each tiny individual is only visible under a micro scope. The vegetable theory has many different sides. Some claim that the oil was dis tilled from vast fields of kelp that floated in the an cient oceans, others say that it comes from rank- swamp plants from the land, others from very tiny sea plants called diatoms and stillothers that it was exuded by coal under heat and pressure. Third Theory The third theory advanced is a combina INDULGE IN BEEF STEAK FRY No use in wasting the good weather this time, has been the motto of several Hol brookites this past week. Among the number were Misses Mildred Hopkins, Helen Hopkins, Miss Callan, and Messrs. H. W. Hughes and E. S. Toelle. They motored out to Box Canyon last Wednesday and indulg ed in a "beefsteak fry" late that afternoon. They said that the beefsteak was aw fully good and no one ap peared to be suffering from indigestion, so we judge that the ladies did the cooking. If we are wrong do not hesi tate to correct us. CALLED TO SNOWFLAKE Ernest and Jesse Hulet left for Snowflake on Thurs- day being called there by the illness of their father, Mr. John R. Hulet. whose recent illness had grown more threatening. Dr. Baz- ell and Dr. Brown of Wins- low were both in attendance and it is the hope of Mr. Hulet s many friends and business associates that his illness may soon take a turn for the better and prove to be of short duration. DANCING CLASS WELLATTENDED The d?.ncing class organiz ed by Prof. L. A. Hepburn last week has been a great success. The meetings are held in the Pastime on Tues days, Thursdays and Fri days. Those who attend are finding that Prof. Hep burn may be styled "an emi nent educator of feet," and are rapidly attaining re markable proficiency in the new dances. SANTA CLAUS ARRIVED AS PERSCHEDULE In addition to the number less surreptitious visits paid to individual homes on Christ mas Eve, Santa Claus arriv ed in Holbrook openly and in broad daylight on Christ mas afternoon as per sche dule arranged by the local Antler s Club. The Community Christmas Tree was beautifully deco rated and drew a large crowd about two thirty on Christ mas afternoon when Old Santa had promised to make his public appearance, First there were some Christmas Carols and several selections by the orchestra which were very fine and greatly appre ciated, a few well chosen words of greeting by Atty. Ferguson and a short talk by Mrs. C. H. Jordan, and then Old Santa, having by this time realized that all preparations were complete, made his entry astride the hood of a gaily decorated truck from which swam the mingled colors of Old Glory and the purple and white of the Elk Lodge. He was greeted with wild applause by the- expectant children and immediately got down to business, which was the distribution of gen erous packages of nuts, candy and toys to all the little people. Every child was well re membered and the Holbrook Antler's Club deserves the hearty thanks of the whole community for the putting across of this ; beneficient scheme which is replete with the Spirit of Christmas 'good will to men'. A HOLIDAY PINIC A jolly crowd made up a Christmas picnic party which motored to the Black For est and Painted Desert north of Adamana last Sunday. All i had a delightful time and two fine outdoor meals were enjoyed as the weather was warm and the air still. Many interesting specimens were found in the Black Forest. In the party were Mrs. Hopkins, her two daughters Mildred and Helen, Mrs. Merkle, Judge and Mrs. Sapp with Gwendolyn, Irene Whet stone, Helen Fitzpatrick, Mrs. and Mrs. M. M. Jordan, Elizabeth Scorse, Claire H. Jordan and Quince Gardner. Where could you find finer weather than that of Arizona this Holiday Season i? the question they would like to have answered. California papers please note. A FAMILY GATHERING Mrs. F. R. Goodman came down from Flagstaff last week and will remain over New Years as the guest of her father L.F. McClanahan. Mrs. Marion Stoneking, known to most of us as May, will also spend Christmas with "Daddy Mac". Mr. Stoneking is in the employ of the Santa Fe at Albuqu erque. Mr. McClanahan as sisted by his two daughters entertained the L. Cadwell family for Christmas dinner. tion of the two previous ones and tries to reconcile both of them. It has arisen and receives much support be cause of the finding of the remains of both animal and vegetable life in the same strata. XMAS HOSPITALITY Beside the large number of just homefolk Christmas dinners there were many who entertained numbers of their friends on this festal occasion. Dr. and Mrs. J. W. Bazell had as their dinner guests Dr. Wilson and his mother and Mrs. G. M. Braxton. Judge and Mrs. Sidney Sapp entertained in addition to their own family Mrs. C. H. Jordan, Mr. Wm. Cham berlin and Mr. E. S. Toelle, who enjoyed the bounteous repast to the 'fullest' ex tent, and are all willing to testify that when it comes to frying oysters Judge Sapp swings a mean frying pan. 0 Summons In the Superior Court of the State of Arizona, In and for the County of Navajo.
