In Now Areas The company has a drilling well In tho new prospective oil field east of. Grapevine, another near Mohawk's discovery north of Arvln, ona on tho flat valley floor northwest of T,en-Sectlon 'field and of course Is busy in tho new field It recently discovered north of Lost Hills. .In addition, tho company lias Reward No. C, coring at 8247 feet for a western extension of North Belridge field, Avonal No. 1, a wildcat 6n Kreyenhagen hills west of Kettleman which Is drilling ahead at 2960 foet and Murphy Kanch No. 1 near tho old Sargent field 1n San Benlto county which Is drilling In Etchegoln formation at 40B4 feet with' one of tho largest gasoline- driven rotarles In the state.

Operations Near Standstill at Edison as Jergins Idles D RILLING operations In Edison field aro almost at a standstill. No more locations have been staked out by A. T. Jergins Trust, which has been tho most active operator In the field. Jergins has fulfilled Its offset requirements on Its own property and also on the half-section jointly owned with Texas Company. Numerous undrtlled locations are left and they will be drilled at some future date but tho company has called a halt in order to realize on the good production It has developed so far. Development of Edison field has been difficult because of the spotted and lenticular condition of the sands. The field include* two oil horizons and spreads over a wide area but every section of proven land contains dry abandoned holes. Jergins has abandoned Brandt No. 0 on section 22', 30-20, after drilling to 43P5 feet and setting 6%-inch casing at 3830. This offset* Bauor Oil Company's lease whore commercial production has been secured down the dip and farther away from tho central portion of tho field. Two wells, Nos. 4 and 6,, on tho Jerglns-Texas feo property, section 23, 30-29, havo been finished In oil sand and await production tests. Difficult Drilling Project Finished on Narrow Lease U SING 18 whlpstocks of tho removable variety, and 90 single shots, Frank Goldman has succeeded In accomplishing one of the most difficult drilling operations on the West Side In his Keene No. 3 In the Williams area back of Taft, section 22, 32-23. Considerable skill was displayed In restricting the slanted hole to the narrow 40-foot lease, especially below the 1300-foot level where the steep formations continually tried to pull tho bit to tho northeast. Using tho derrick at Keeno No. 3, which produces from the first sand, operators slanted a hole west one location to the second sand and cemented 8%-lnch casing at 1500 feet. As soon as tho cement has hardened a, production test will ho arranged on the oil sand at 1600-2122 feet. Warren E.'Ten Eyck was geologist on the Job and Karl Wright was superintendent of drilling.

OPEN REVIVAL AT LOCAL CHURCH Judge Rules Against Plainliff in Oil Action involving "Drift" Wells (United Press Leased Wire! LOS ANGKLES. Sept. 23.—Superior Judge William J. Palmer, ruling that tho burden of proof rested upon the plaintiff In establishing that his production hnd been curtailed, today decided In favor of the Bellview Oil Syndicate In a suit that sought, to determine ownership of oil extracted by "drift" wells. Tho court set aside claims of the Alphonzo. E. Boll Corporation for f8.GOO.000 damages from tho defendant Bell Syndicate on tho grounds that tho latter concern "permitted" two of Its wells to drift beyond tho defendant's property lines to property tho corporation leased to tho Union Oil Company. Distinguishing between dlroV- tloimlly drilled, or "whlpstookcd" wells, and those where a drift occurred in iho normal course of drilling, Judge Pnlmer ruled that the plaintiff must .show that the defendant produced more oil because of tho drift, nnd 'thus reduced thu plaintiff's production. Tho court cited'the right of property owners to compete for oil production under the rule of capture and held that overlying property owners had a common Interest in community pools. The Bell Corporation had sued to recover $3,500.000 It contended tho Independent firm Illegally extracted from the drift wells.
