Aug. 2B. — A camera ^ which takes movies of human eyes In action unreeled a surprise discovery today—everyone has a shifty look. Tho eyes of every Individual apparently tako turns looking at things, Dr. Brant Clark of Los An- poles, ocular research student at tho University of Southern California and Inventor of tho camera, explained. The shifts are mado so swiftly that other eyes cannot detect it, he said. This was a direct contradiction of tho generally accepted theory of why wo can look at a thing with two eyes and see only ono Imago. The theory was that we arc "right-eyed" or "left-eyed" Just a* wo are "right handed" or "loft handed." Tho dominant eye, tho theory held, fixed Itself on a Image first, and tho other eye followed a split second later. ' Contedlng there waa "no neurological evidence" to support this theory, Dr. Clark tested It out with his "eyo movement" camera. Two magnifying lenses wero placed In front of the eyes being photographed. Fourteen feet away was a six-Inch screen In front of which a sensitized film moved continuously. Light reflected from mirrors was thrown Into the eyes, and thenco through the magnifying glasses to tho film. Tho resulting photograph waa not a snapshot of tho eyes, but a graph consisting of two beams of light. Every time tho eyes moved, tho path of tho beam changed. Tho graphs, Dr. Clark said, showed clearly that neither of the eyes of a number of Individuals photographed was dominant.

The well lies on an 80-acre lease on the southeast flank of Bucna Vlala Hills field section 22, 32-24, and Is the fh-Ht lest of portabilities for production below the Hcaloz sand. ThlH Is another Instance of an old partly exhausted portion or the West Side fields being revived by finding fredh oil.

R. Bardwell, tho man who discovered tho West Hide's "little Signal Hill" has scored again on tho Quality Oil Company property on section 27, 82-23. The well Is known as tho No. 3 and Is along tho north lino of the government section. The well was drilled to a depth ot 1936 feot with a string of 8%-lnch casing landed at 1890 feet. Oil field scouts arc claiming tho well will do COO barrels a day. Bardwell, however, In his conservative way, claims that 250 will be, and Is, a nlco figure. AFTER an absence of several •"• weeks while doing exploratory work in other part*, Mohawk Oil Company i* coming back to Mountain View field and is preparing to drill again on the W. If. Clendenen lease, section 30, 30-29. A large wooden derrick which has been standing opposite Wood-Callahan's Wells No. 2, has been rigged up to drill Clendenen No. 8, and spudding is scheduled this week. Plan to Install Additional Machinery, Governor Mine By J. H. JACKSON Mechanical Delay Balks Rio Grande Rio Grande Oil Company's wildcat on the surmised McDonald anticline near the foothills west of North Bel- rldgo field, section 18, 28-20, has been retarded by a fishing Job, having reached only 2400 feet after two month's drilling. Fourteen miles north Is a wildcat which holds the record for fishing jobs, having spent an estimated total of one year, fishing for drill pipe at various depths. This Is Standard Oil Company's United No. 1, section 2, 26-20. High-head flowing hot salt water brings sand Into the hole which freezes tho drill pipe, and the crew has been fishing more often than drilling. Tho last Job at 6887 feet has been especially difficult, and It Is reported that the drill pipe has been cut at 6800 feet. «» e . M O.IAVB, Aug. 26.—Operators of the. McDonald lease on the Governor mines property located near Acton arc reported as having found sufficiently encouraging values while sinking to a depth of 60 feet on a four-foot vein to Justify Installation of a new compressor and hoisting equipment. Exploration and development will bo continued. Work on six shafts Is going ahead on the Whltmore Group, the low grade ores being shipped to tho Burton Brothers mill at Troplco, while tho high grade from the north shaft will bo shipped to tho Garflsld, Utah smelter of the American Smelting and Refining .Corporation. Lawrence Requa Is the engineer In charge of operations at the property. Shipments of ore to tho Burton Brothers mill have been resumed from tho properties of the Middle Buttes Mining Company. Shipments will be made at the rate of approxl mately 100 tons per week, accord- Ing to Walter Trent of Willow Springs, president of the company. Tho ore Is coming from tho extension of the glory hole which has been the source of considerable production In the past. With five sots ot leasers on tho ground, tho mill at the Butte Lode Mining Company's property near Randsburg, working two shifts Is milling 20 tons of ore per day, according to leasers on the property. Tho ore Is free milling and Is said to run from $8.00 to $20.00 per ton In gold. Ten stamps are In operation, the mill making a recovery of 00 per cent and better. Sol Camp is making bi-weekly shipments from the Rogers & Gen try lease at Neenach to the mill of The Western Graphite Company at Lake Hughes. Reports from the mill Indicate that the ore carries values of from $25.00 to $40.00 per ton In gold and silver.

TAX COLLECTION EFFICJNUAyS California Most Successful in Collection of Liquor Tax, Official Avers (United frcfi Lraied Wire) SACRAMENTO, Aug. 20.—Callfof ila la more successful In the collec- Ion ot liquor taxes than any state n the nation, Dlxwell 1-. Pierce, seo- etary of the state boanl of equalize Ion, said In a statement In which 10 sought to disprove contentions hat the liquor tax has not been effectively administered. "California has collected a tax on L482 gallons of distilled spirits for every Inhabitant of the state," he said, pointing out that this figure was much higher than, the average as reported by federal officials. "The nearest approach to the California figures Is that for Illinois, with 1.07 gallons taxable per inhab- tant," Pierce continued. "New York, . which Is generally regarded as having the most nearly satisfactory license and control system, collected taxes on a basis of .765 of a gallon per Inhabitant. "California collections are so far above those of any other state In proportion to population that the conclusion that our collection methods are more effective here than elsewhere Is Inescapable. If New York Is taken as a normal balls of state liquor excise collection, giving It a rating of 100 per cent, then the least efficient state (Arizona) would be rated at 06 per cent and California at 198 per cent."
