However, due to atmospheric conditions, the blast wasn't heard here at Las Vegas, only 75 miles .away. Two thousand military personnel crouched in foxholes as;the flaming ball of fire mushroomed forth and the familiar cloud of smoke rose skyward. Afterwards, the soldiers walked through the area near "'ground zero" and inspected the charred and twisted remains of military equipment that had been placed in the area. Several vehicles, spotted where they were expected to re- molished. A heavy tank was picked up by the blast wave and hurled a short distance.

An uneasy peace prevailed Tuesday in the compounds holding some 80,000 prisoners, most of them last-ditch Communists who have declared their intention to return to Communism after an armistice. Flame-throwing jeeps and tanks, armored cars and combat-toughened troops of six Allied nations patrolled outside the barbed-wire enclosures. Inside, the prisoners were believed hammering out crude weapons for possible resistance to the forthcoming Allied attempt to split the 6,000-man compounds into smaller groups of not more than 500 prisoners each.

Montex is wildcatting in the northwest but it has three producing wells in its Texas holdings. One is on a 160-acre tract on the Boling dome in Wharton County. Two others are on a one-acre lease in the Goose Creek field. In addition the company controls several hundred acres of leases and minerals in Texas, including 200 acres in Duval county near the Rio Grande. They also have a block in North Dakota. Appell has other oil operations. He owns the Appell Drilling Co. and currently has six rigs drilling in Texas and Montana. He spent 14 years with two well known oil men, R. E. (Bob) Smith and Claud' Hamil, before going in business for himself. The I. J. Schenin Co. of New York is handling Montex's stock issue. They hope soon to have 1,200,000 shares ready for sale at 25 cents a share to push the search for oil. Of course, much depends upon the outcome of the well now being put down by Driller McAlpin, who has spent virtually all of his life within shadows of Gooee Creek oil fields derricks and learned his "know-how" right here. Lawyer Flowers, former boy prodigy of Baytown, lived his early life in the Saratoga and Sour Lake oil field boom days. He came to Baytown in the early days of the field here and has learned as much "oil" by absorption as many technicians learn in a lifetime of test- tube study.

The drill stems hold the answer. at Velasco with a 73-foot clearance but district Army engineers are demanding an 80-foot clearance. The same sort of controversy has arisen over the bridge across the Trinity. The State Highway Department has applied for permission to build a span 50 feet above the river. But for navigation reasons, the Army Engineers turned down^ the request and recommended a bridge 77 feet above the mean high tide level. State highway engineers estimate this will cost an extra $1 million. The "•'•'Baytown area has a big stake in both the San Jacinto and Trinity river bridges.
