THE £ AM? A DAILY NEWS, P*ffi P ft, font K EIGHT NEW OIL WELLS ADD 4,647 BARRELS TO POTENTIAL f •• ...... . ~- • ~ .^ i.--•*• ^.-'.< ^*----. A hike In dally allowable following a tumor that output would be cut was joyfully received in the Panhandle field late last week when the Texas Railroad Commission announced a hike of 0,138 barrels dally for the Panhandle. The Increase placed the daily output at 81,288 barrels, effective May 1. The Moore county field, not considered a part of the Panhandle area, was given an increase of' 36 barrels, bringing the output to 1,386 barrels. Wheeler The Osborne pool In county, another separate 700 barrels. Consistent withdrawals from storage and the fact that 1,138 barrels of new allowable oil was added to the Panhandle potential between April 1 and the hearing date were given as reason for the large Increase. Eight new wells tested by the Texas Railroad Commission added 4,647 barrels to the daily potential last week. Five of the new tests were In Gray county. They had a total flow of 2,966 barrels. Cosmos Gets Well. The best well of the week was brought in by the Cosmos Oil company when its No. B-4 Catlln in Gray county, was given a potential of 818 barrels from lime pay bottomed at 3,230 feet. The well is three miles southeast of Parripa. Seventeen Intentions to drill new wells were also filed with the local Ralroad Commission office. Six of the new tests will be drilled In Hutchinson county with Gray getting four. Moore and Carson reported three each with the odd well being in Wheeler. Corrected location for a wildcat test In Ochlltree county was made last week with announcement that spudding In would start immediately at the James R. Mason No. 1 W. R. Norris near the center of a 100,000 acre block of land located in Ochiltree, Roberts and Hemphill counties. The test will be made in the southwest corner of the southeast quarter of section 212, block 43, H&TC survey, at a point about 13 miles southeast of the town of Ochlltree. New Lease Idea. A novel feature of the leases is that they bear no rental as long as development is in progress. If pay is reached, rental will be 50 cents per acre. Plans call for drilling the test to a depth of 6,000 feet unless commercial production is found at a lesser depth. Jack H. Whitson of Mendota is assembling a block of land for three tests In Roberts and Hemphill counties and geologists started their survey last week. Completions recorded last week: Gray County.

MAN WANTS LAST RIDE TO BE SMOOTH ONE MEXICO, Mo. (AP)—Wanted: A smooth last ride. A member of the Mexico Civic club, under the head of "Projects Needed," asked in a club questionnaire for "a paved hard-surfaced road from the end of West Monroe street to the cemetery gate — we have enough jolts and bumps in everyday life without being bumped and rolled around in our casket on our last ride."

"Never mind. Sybil, that's the trouble With Something to Crow About! The new 1937 Electric Refrigerators are more beautiful, more , economical and faster than those sold last year, but the most surprising advance has been made in convenience. The new Refrigerators have a place for everything and are designed so that it will be easy and natural to keep everything in its place. You will mai-vel at the ingenuity of those who designed the new convenient features. But nothing has been sacrificed on 1937 dependability. These new models are worthy of a high place among ten million other Electric Refrigerators now giving satisfactory service in American homes.

He had grown up in a prospector's ent on the desert; as a young man e had sought his fortune in mining amps, from the bleak wastes of Klondike to the burning Jungles f Mexico. So the little white house n the new community of Green iills was the culmination of a life's onglng. No two people had ever been hap- ier than he and Nancy were that irst year. The house echoed the lilt f Nancy's song and the big boom of ohn's hearty laugher. In front of lie fireplace, nestled in each other's rms, they wove their dreams. Life of his hand. Ten. rising, he suggested: "How about joining me in a bottle of wine, Sybil?" "Perhaps just a little sherry, Uncle John. But I do wish you'd get Philip home. He might catch his death of cold . . ." "Bosh!" He went over to a cabinet against the wall. "If it's only sherry that I the wine over to the low table in front of the fire and poured out two glasses. "Here's to you, my dear, and for you the best of everything." "Thank you. Uncle John." Sybil clicked his glass. She was still wondering how she could get Philip home. It seemed a pity her uncle couldn't try to understand him. Af- er all, there was no need for all this fussing about Phillip getting down to work. Why should he work? There was plenty of money .... Her uncle suddenly Interrupted her thoughts. "Were you surprised to hear of Bob's getting himself engaged?" he asked. Sybil's face, even In the firelight, paled. She put her glass down care- romised much. And they had love. fullv . lest hcr shaking fingers be- In the spring. Nancy planned the. tr fty ner - attlce work and John himself nailed I "I was very much surprised, of topether and course," she replied, with exaggerated indifference. Hendry smiled. "To tell the truth," he said, "I was surprised myself. For a while it seemed as if this was one deal Bob couldn't put over." Sybil smiled, a trifle disdainfully. "You men are so naive, Uncle John, she murmured. "It seems to me that Miss Barrett has played her cards quite cleverly. She's doing very well he strips of wood lainted them green. Then, after hey had planted the young rose ushes In the warm earth, watered hem and tucked In the roots, Nancy ad whispered: "I wonder which will row the fastest John—the roses or ur little John, as soon as he gets lere. . . ." , I Year after year, the roses grew ,nd budded and blossomed, but be- ore the end of that very first year, ittle John and Nancy had gone together, and Big John was left alone n the white cottage. | He never thought of leaving it. As his fortune grew, his friends wondered why he continued his solitary existence in the house where death lad robbed him of so much. His •oungcr brother came to Green Hills and built the most elaborate home n the entire community, but John, who had made the money which paid for his brother's fine house, ; itayed on In the little white cottage ind puttered among the rose bushes. There was Abraham Lincoln Jones, lovable old colored man who was cook and housekeeper and gardener and handy-man, all rolled into one, and within the tiny house contentment reigned. On this sunny day it even seemed 0 reflect contentment as Sybil Hendry drew her smart green roadster up to the curb. But there was no an- wering warmth in Sybil's heart. If he felt the house at all, she resented t as a cheap little shack, housing a .tubborn old man who Insisted upon remaining crudely indifferent to social advantages. She looked at it only to assure herself that it harbored no guests t the moment. Her uncle had planned a quiet Sunday dinner, with just Philip and her and Bob Andrews. 3ut shortly before the dinner hour, Sybil had pleaded a sudden illness. She knew Joan Barrett had stayed overnight at the Inn; Bob would bring her to dinner, of course. And Sybil could not force herself to see hem together. She got out of the car and walked toward the house. Bob's car was not n the driveway alongside the porch. Evidently they had left shortly after dinner. Through the wide front windows she saw her uncle sitting in ront of the fireplace, reading. The front door, as usual, was unlatched, and she entered without ringing. "Hello, Uncle John." He looked up from his book and smiled a greeting. "Hello, Sybil, my dear. Peeling better?" "Much better, thank you." She slip- led out of the luxurious mink coat ;hat had been his Christmas gift and sat down opposite 1'i'ii. "Too much pr.ity?" he asked mildly. Sybil shrugged. "The lobster salad, 1 guess. It never does me any good." She lit a cigaret and leaned back, looking into the flames. 'We missed you at dinner. And Phil didn't show up either." "I think he went to town early this morning." She knew her younger brother had not been home all night, but instinctively she shielded him. "He went to town early all right," her uncle said quietly. "He was in jail before noon ... Sybil started. "Uncle John! What happened? Why didn't he call me?" Hendry reached for his pipe on the low table beside him; mechanically he began to fill it. 'I dare say he was in no condition to call anybody. The police captain phoned me." "But what happened to Philip? What did he do?" "He was picked up for reckless driving and intoxication—fortunately before he happened to do anything." Slowly he lit his pipe. Sybil relaxed. "Oh, that isn't so terrible," she said, a shade of annoyance in her tone. "After all, it was the Spring Frolic ..." She shrugged eloquently, implying that the Frolic was an occasion for intoxication anc reckless driving, "Yes," her uncle went on, calmly "but Phil's riding pretty high, Sybil We've both spoiled him badly. He's almost 25 years old, and it's time he began to take life in earnest." Then with less severity In his voice, he added: "Hpwevei 1 , dp»Vt frown so about it, my dear. I'll talk turkey to Philip this time." He chuckled. «'l told the captain not to hurry out. A le? 3m m ft hard. 99 v for herself, don't you think? "Of course she is.

Why, bless my soul, hasn't she been working for me, right in my own office, every day for the past two years?" He was a little annoyed at Sybil's attitude. He might have told her how Joan Barrett had startled him that first day she stepped into the office, looking for all the world like his Nancy had, so many years before. The same blue eyes, clear and honest, with Just a touch of sadness in their depths. The same golden curls. The same warm smile. She might have been Nancy's own daughter. His daughter, for that matter. And Sybil prattled about'background! Fiddlesticks! "You know that she's an efficient stenographer," Sybil persisted maliciously. "But what can you learn about a girl's private life from that? What was she before she came to your offices?" Hendry frowned. "She worked for Ward & Cleaver, in Chicago, one of the biggest bond houses in the country." He finished his sherry with a gulp, sat back in his chair. Sybil pursued the subject no further, but she smiled with inward satisfaction. Ward & Cleaver. That was a definite starting point. She'd write to Bill Harris in Chicago. He knew every bond house in the city. He could find out anything she needed to know. Better still, she might send Philip to Chicago. She finished her sherry, and licked her lips slowly, like a treacherous, greedy cat with a mouse within its grasp. Ward & Cleaver, Chicago. She'd start an Inquiry immediately. .11 wouldn't take long.
