Clapsaddle, Mason City, was guest speaker yesterday at the Rotary meeting here, and today at the Lions Club lunch, in conjunction with Oil Progress Week. He was introduced by Jerry Ferris at the Rotary meeting. He spoke on the subject of the oil industry and what it meant; to the country. Mr Clapsaddle's point was that folks often get a distorted view of what an oil man is; not many of them are fabulously wealthy, he pointed out, and the business is a matter of not only wells, pipelines, refineries, office, laboratories and service stations, but is also a matter of people. One out of every 38 people in the American labor force is connected in some manner with oil, he said.
