More Funds Urffod He urged Congress to aporove Obituary "I think their propaganda, unfortunately, is smarter than ours," the Illinois senator said in an interview. That Is why, Douglas said, he reversed his past role of seeking to reduce general foreign aid funds in favor of a generous appropriation for technical assistance to underdeveloped areas, both direct and through the U.N. The Senate Appropriations Committee is now considering a request for eight million dollars for the program. The House allowed four millions.

Everybody agrees that the effect here of another bloodless surrender like Tachens and Nimchishan would be bad. One highly-placed American said "It might even be Intnl."

These people say that the cold war has reached a point In Asia where a reversal In one area affects nil other areas.

"They will try to make Uncle Sam become Mr. Money Bags, Ha- i:ist, Imperialist nncl ouscssed with its hydrogen bombs," he predicted.

He said small funds for health and sanitation probably had brought the largest returns, and added that a quarter's worth of penicillin can cure a child of Yaw.s Ls a tropical disease, which Douglas said, often dooms a "child to a life of torment, hideous disfigurement and economic dependence." "No wonder that such a cure produces more friendship than any other act," he said. Hodge Services Are Tomorrow iervlces for Louie Kdward lodge, 2(3, will be conducted nt Cobb Funerul.

Extension Course Being Planned Dean William Turner of Arkansas State College will be on hand Monday night in the Junior High School lo discuss a visual aid extension course. Monday's meeting is scheduler! for 7 p.m. DALLAS, Tex. tfl — A device to iclp oilmen find new petroleum deposits more quickly and at less cost has been developed by an Ar- tansas inventor. He is Gerald C. Summers, 35- year-old senior research technolo- ;ist for the Magnolia Petroleum ?o., here. Summers is a native of Wabbaseka, Ark., and a graduate of the University of Arkansas. The new invention, patented only last week, will allow exploriation crews to avoid unproductive formations beneath the eath's surface in their search for oil. It also will reduce considerably the time and money spent in hunting for petroleum. Cigar-Shaped The device is a cigar - shaped cylinder, 12 feet long and 314 inches in diameter. It uses sound waves to determine the formations of the earth at various depths. Here's how it works: A transmitter is located at the top, and a receiver at the bottom of the cylinder. It is lowered into the earth by a thin steel cable. At frequent intervals in its descent, the device is stopped. Sound waves are sent from the transmitter through a "conductor liquid" into the earth, and then recorded by the receiver. The time required for the sound to travel from the transmitter to the recorder reveals the mineral content, of the formation being measured. At the earth's surface, a three- man crew watches as this data Is recorded on a graph. The device can survey formations to a depth of 16,000 feet. Took 30 Hours Previously, said Summers, suv- vey crews lowered geophones into the earth, then set off dynamite charges on the surface. They made their findings by measuring the time required for the sound of the explosion to reach the geophone*. "That took us 30 hours with a crew of 30 men and considerabl* expense for the cost of dynamlt*," he sai. Summers' invention costs $15,000, but it can be used repeatedly, »nd is much more accurate than t«o- phones. Magnolia Petroleum id- ready !s using the Instrument in this country, Venezuela »»d Canda. While Summers holds the paWnt on the oil finder, his company t»k« in all the royalties on ». "Everything we turn up is !« the company, but they also pay tu when we don't turn up anything," he said. After graduating from th« Din- versity of Arkansas, Summers received a master's degree from Southern Methodist university. H» taught for a while at Massachusetts Institute of Technology whilo serving in the U. S. Navy during World War n. Summers is married and has two chilri'-en, ages 13 and 8. Wilhite Speaks Here Tomorrow Russell Wilhite of Memphis will be guest speaker at special services at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses here tomorrow. The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. The program, entitled "Christendom or Christianity," is a part of a worldwide campaign of Jehovah's Witnesses.
