THE BAKERSPIELD CALIFORNIA!*, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1936 Associated Williamson No. 4 to Be Produced From Third Sand at Lost Hills Fourth oil zone was found unproductive In Associated Oil Company's Williamson No. 4 In the new field north of Lost Hills, section 2, 26-20, and the well Will be prepared to produce from the , third zone at 1375- 16EO feet. Total depth drilled was 1785 feet. A 10%-lnch string of casing- was cemented at 1024 feet on the second zone, and 8%-lnch has been set at 1375 feot on the third Zone, with bottom plugged to 1560. The number of so-called zones In this area-Is confusing. An oil sho\y only 200 feet below the surface Is called the first zone. Production can J)e considered , to come front one scone, the Williamson, containing a shale break In the middle, the top portion of which Is called No. 2 and the bottom No. 3 Associated has staked out, two more locations to drill—ono 1600 feet northwest of Williamson -No. 4 and., another Ifi the southeast, offsetting- Texas Company's The'ta No. 1. - • SEEK TO EXTEND LOST HILLS AREA In an attempt to extend the new area north of Lost Hills field 1 mile to the southeast, Lincoln Petroleum "Company Is preparing to drill one quarter-mile west of the center of Section 12, 26-20. The location Is slightly east of a point midway be. tween Lost Hills field and the new field discovered by Associated Oil Company pn the' Wllllantaon lease. IM-, . Resume Hunt for Rich Gold Deposit (United Frcti Leatet W(re) EDMONTON Alberta, Sept. 22.— Charles McLeod, Scottish trapper, is planning to resume the search for a fabulously rich gold cache In the wild Nahannl country near the arctic circle which lured two of his brothers to their deaths. McLeod's two brothers, William and Frank, learned the location of the rich gold deposit from a tribe of Ravage Indians who have guarded It for generations In 1905, but were murdered by a companion before they could return -to .civilization. The murderer later committed suicide, and the secret died with him. (.According to legend, the gold field, the location of which Is known only to the wild Indiana, Is BO rich that nuggets can bo scooped up with a shovel. Grapevine Wildcat Flows at 700-Barrel Rate, Sands Up /CREDITED with being the dlscov- vj ery Well of a new field east of Grapevine In the southeast corner of tho valley, tho Reserve OH & Gas Cijmpany's No. 33-2, section 33, 11.19, reportedly-flowed seven hours at the estimated rate of 25 barrels per hour of 22 gravity oil, before sanding tip again. During this period the pressure built-up from 400 to 600 pounds. It Is said that the flow stopped when, the gate was opened wide/to Increase the output, which resulted In sand being dragged Into tho hole. Formations open to production lie at 4446-4474 feet. This la the culmination of two years' .wlldcattlng by Reserve Oil & Qaa Company .In which six locations were drilled. The company Is preparing to go-back In the Old Richie well In the southwest corner of the samo section and make another endeavor to put It on production. Half a mile southwest of the Richie well the 101 Oil Company, headed by M. M. Young, one of the early wildcatters In the district, is rigging up to drill 6n section 6,10-19. Underground structure as indicated by seismograph surveys. Is an anticline running northwest; however, It Is the opinion of some geologists that the accumulation Is governed by a fault like Mountain View field. Other activities aVe Ohio OH Company's wildcat started on section 21, 11-19, two miles north of the discovery well, and Associated Oil Company's core hole northwest of this on section 17, which Is down 8100 feet. Shell Bit Encounters Shale Beneath 540-Foot Oil Zone T OWER limit of the high gravity •*-' oil zone In Ten Section field may possibly have been reached at the shale break, 35 feet In thickness, recently hit at 8280 feet in Stevens No. A-56, section 29, 80-26. Other bodies of shalo have been encountered but this is the largest so far. Stringers of oil sand were picked up below It, and operators are continuing to explore ahead with the Intention of going to 8900 feet. Depth now Is 8341, still In the upper Mio- cene formation, equivalent to tho Santa Margarita. The shale may be between two oil zones. Even though a lower zone is not struck, however, the probabilities of a big producer here are practically assured. As It now stands, the oil zone Is 640 feet thick. This should be enough for an output of substantial size, considering that In the discovery well, the top 80 feet of the formation yields SOO barrels of 60 gravity oil along with 14,000,000 cubic feet of wet gas, at a location which is 60 feet lower on tho strUeture. Old Diamond Field Will Be Reopened (VnUed Prett Leased Wire) BOMBAY, Sept. 22.—A diamond field which used to provide jewels for the great Emperor Akbar (1B42- 1605) Is to bo exploited again.

The stones were sent to south Africa and experts expressed tho opinion they wore as good as those from south African fields. ROOSEVELT BETTER WASHINGTON, Sept. 22. (A. I 3 .)— Mrs Franklin D.

Doctors discovered a malformation of' tho Intestinal tracts^-ajt>sonco pf a portion of tho descending colon', and an abnormal condition of the bladder. Dr. Louis K. Eastman, chief of tho hospital staff, saw no cluinco for tho Infant's survival without an opoi-a- tlon. Even If the operation woro performed, ho sold, tho boy probably "always will be a caro."

Tafel, Imploring her husband for permission, said, "It would bo a Bin not to give him a chance to llvo. Thero Is always hopo. We can't lot him dlo wlthput trying to do something."
