PAGE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, August 25,1939, History of Oil Is Told byj.8. Bates Giant Industry to Observe Its 80th Anniversary Sunday "August 27 is more than just another day in American petroleum industry. It ia the industry's birthday, the SOth anniversary of the day on which back in 1859, Col. Edwin Laurcncinc Drake proved that man could drill for oil and produce it, in commercial quantities." acording to M. S. Bates of the Hempstead County Oil Dealers' Association. "Anybody who visits the Drake Memorial Park at Titusville, Pa., can see » few inches of the orignial well casing protruding from the ground. And in the nearby museum they can viesv relics of the beginnings of an American industry. "Oil was used and extensively, long before Drake and the syndicate which financed his drilling experiment completed their well. But the success of the experiment was the spark which set fire to men's imaginations, and which investigated the production of oil in huge quantities, so that people, everywhere, could have it, and use it, cheaply. Widespread Production "Oil now is produced in sorne 22 of the United States. The daily output is enormous. American supplies the ;world with oil although this country itself is^ the largest consumer. The spread of production is one substantial reason why oil and its products everywhere are available. The spread of production also is the reason why- Ac, nation's oil reserves have increase- ed, even have kept ahead of consumption. "Man is learning more about oil. but while many of Nature's oil secrets still are unrevealed, enough is known to establish confidence that the supply is generously adequate. Oil is being found where it was thought not to exist. It is being found at deeper levels, and far under fields once supposed to have exhausted. Drake found oil at 69c feet. Oil now is being produced from 10,000 to 13.000 feet. Engineers are preparing to drill to three miles into the earth's surface in the belief that even more oil is available there. Industrial Growth "Colonel Drake and his well have many successors. More than 350,000 wells now produce oil. Where the colonel and his helpers originallly numbered only four, today approximately 1,000,000 people are engaged in the oil business. The one Drake syndicate has been replaced by thousands upon thousands of oil companies, large and small, and by additional thousands I of independent operators. There are more than 100 oil refineries, more than 250.000 service stations, and thousands of bulk plants, of miles of oil pipe line, of railroad tank cars and of tank ships. "There once Colonel Drake sought Kerosene for illumination, today more than 300 ossentical products are made from petroleum. They serve some needs in the daily life of every person in the civilized world. In fact, petroleum now is probably the most widely used natural corrtmercial product. "Drake's well paid %vages to a few. The industry has an annual payroll of about $1,500,000,000. Drake proposed to produce a few dollar's worth of kerosene. The indutry today contributes some $4,000,000,000 annually to the na- ReliabMed Bird COUNT ~7£)ROW/NG /-V PRACTICE Hope, Lewisville Will Play Sunday D o ublehcaclcr S cheduled at Fair Park—May Be Season's Final The Leo Hobins bn.sebiill loam of Hope will meet the strong semi-pro learn of Lewisville in a doublchemlcr at Fair Park Sunday afternoon, the first game beginning al 2 o'clock.

Germany —(VP)— Nazi rejection of President Roosevelt's appeal wa.s forecast authoiiiaiively Friday as German sources reported Soviet Russia was putting last minute pressure on Fo'and to give in peacefully to Hitler's demands. Hope for a peaceful settlement through the llth hour capitulation of Poland and her guarantors. Great Britain and France, was the keynote in official quarters here. The president's message, issued Thursday night to the fuehrer and Ignace Moscicki, president of Poland, suggesting that Poland and Germany settle their differences either through direct negotiations, by arbitration or conciliation, was studied by Hitler Friday morning: and an answer was expected to be made public Friday night. Hitler and Advisors On the ministers most directly involved surrounded Hitler at the conference which went into the early hours of the morning. They included among others Field Marshall Georing, Foreign Minister von Ribbentrop, Propaganda Minister Goebbels and Rudilf OT n\^ *. • Aborts Frey Gains Confidence CINCINNATI - ( ,P ( - Lonny Frey, ing Fraternity.

I'm going to give Joe Marty the best chance- he ever had to play center field and I know he'll come through. And watch that kid Ike Parson up from the University. He's going to develop into quite a pitcher. He's big and loose and has shown me a swell sideann fast ball."

The Polish press continued to declare that the nation will defend its 'rights and territories.'' "Poland Is Ready," read a typical leadline. "We answer with contempt the bluff of Hitler. Invasion will be met with guns. There was some belief that government officials were preparing a statement outlining the nation's 'limit of forbearance." It was considered possible that the statement would warn the Free City of Danzig what would be considered "unacceptable violation of Polish rights."
