COUISIEU NIWS PAGE THREE .Kf< o-'> D/7 Boom Sends Surge of Excitement Through Mississippi - And Wa// Street Arkansas GOP Members Meet Stump Leads Attack S*0n State Democrats At Batesvillc Rally By JOHN H. liKLFOIU) United Press Staff Correspondent LITTLE ROCK, A\lg. 28 IUP) — The Arkansas Republicans firec heir opening blasts rluriiiB a rails at Batcsville the other night, ant the GOP offensive to crack traditionally Democratic Arkansas i: now officially under way. The main theme of the Republican state campaign appears to be hooked to one point; Hie Demo cratlc state administration doesn' have to worry how Arkansas wil vote—and consequently the peopl of the state receive little in return The other campaign points ap pear to be: A "pressure group" t running the state capitol. and tha the purpose for which the sales lu.s was intended is not being carricc out. Hailey C. Stump, the GOP nomi nee for governor, led the attack 01 the Democrats of Arkansas. He de clared that Arkansas is entitled Ihc same opportunities n.s othe states in securing factories an> other projects lo help keep th dwindling population, Stump said the slate's population has decreased 10,000 a year for the past 10 years—and be blamed the decrease on the fact that the Democratic parly has been hi control of slate politics for the post 12 years. Wallace Townsend, the GOP national comtnittecman, also threw a few charges at tile, Democrats. Ar- cordlng to Townsend, the big issue in the current campaign is the "overwhelming greed of the present administration for additional power an .nauthoiily." .The GOP leaders, who receive 4j»f strongest support in the (Sriiioni section of the state, are making their initial campaign that section. They already have appeared in Calico Rock, Mountain Home and Harrison. Ray Lang, a salesman for radio station KLHA in UHlc Rock, is a rare critter, lie is an arm chair strategist—but he doesn't have an armchair in which to work. So he does all his strategy standing up. Maybe that bus something to do with Lang's success in predicting what will happen in this war. Since he has to take everything standing up, he has just got to be correct. Lang is considered ucanny in his predictions, sinue a month before the ivasion of France, Ray has been 100 per cent correct in his predictions of things to come in the European theater. He predicted where the Allies would land in the invasion of France. He predicted their immediate drive. Now —still batting 100 per ccnWLang is still predicting where the Allies will be next month. . When the invasion ot northern France sloivly moved out of thj banner-headline stage, Lang started mumbling something about an invasion of Southern France. Some- HjpJ about the Bay of Biscay, Marseilles and Toulon. That was two months ago. Lang says he uses only logic in figuring out the Allied moves. He says lie doesn't even own a Ouija board. He will take a map, draw circles and lines all over it—and explain just why the Allies are going in such a direction—and why Ihev won't go another. Ray knows the country where Hie fighting is now going ori. As a youngster of 15, he ran away from home to serve as a cabin boy on a private yacht. His journey's took him to Europe. As of the present Lang lias been absolutely correct in his strategy. But he would like to find a comfortable arm-chair someplace. He figures he might need it before too long. Regardless of all the efforts that have been made to allow Arkansas servicemen and women serving overseas to vote in the Novembei general elections, it just can't be done. Regardless of all the efforts that h.-^c been made to allow Arkansas R'Miccmen and women serving ov- ctWas to vote in the November general elections, it just can't be done. Secretary of State C. G.

Real oil excitement Is gushing through this southeastern stale, In ihe biggest oil craze since discovery of the lush East Texas 'ielcl In 1930.' For weeks now, Wall Street has been in the thick of the oil boom, with stock speculalors seeking companies with Mississippi real estate. Investors and oil geologist are talking a immibo-jumbo il anticlines, uplift humps, the Upper Cretaceous' Age and Wilcox rand. Big brokerage Iv>usc5 have ballercd their southeastern offices with questions. Mississippi has been an oil state flncc the siege of Vicksburg. The first oil dome was discovered' In 18UO; the first well was drilled in 1903. Things went slowly hi the 36 years through 1039. Wild callers drilled 260 wells in Mis fh.slppi, got only a handful of gas wells. Now Ihe Cranflcld and Hcidel berg are rated al 100,000,000 bai- rels each; the Euculta field should have 50,000,000 barrels. Blggsl established field Is Tinslcy. By ordinary standards a 20,000,000 barrel fieltl i.s n major one. I'llODUCTION .TUMI'S Mississippi produced only 17.000 barrels of oil in 1939. but produ c lion jumped to 15,321.000 in 194 and a whopping 18,807,000 barrels in 1943. Mississippi lias become the twelfth oil state in Ihe Outlet States. Geologists say tills slale be part of an oil strip 25t miles wide along the Gulf Coast. Naturally, the oil companies have the biggest stake in Mississippi oil. Big names include Humble. Allan- tic Refining, Sun, Gulf, Standard of California, Union Producing Co., r.nd Superior Oil—all of whom have over 300000 acres under lease. Lesser lights are Texas, Phillips, Barnsdall, Sinclair and Pure Oil. Every man and his brother is in on the Mississippi oil boat. One- third of the-state U under lease. Farmers want $5000 an acre for pine land they mice would have sold for $5. The tracts of Gulf Mobile & Ohio crisscross Mississippi and il already has leased 19,000 acres of its laiid to a pair of oil companies. Even if the railroad has no gusher it should profit by increased tank traffic from Mississippi wells. WARNING OIlDKIt I" tlic Clmiioery Court, Chickasawlw Dlstrlcl, Mississippi County, Arkansas.
