Oil Companies Building Roads OKLAHOMA CITY, June 20— Oil companies operating in the new Oklahoma City field pave and improve the roads and streets Into the Mansion area as they go—with oil saturated sand taken directly from the wells. The Wilcox sand produced with the oil is hauled from the wells in {Jump trucks and placed as surfacing ' on the streets serving the area. The heavy trucks hauling pipe and casing to the wells pack the surface into a firm, compact and economical pavement. The result is conservation of resources and conservation of taxpayers road slid street assessments. «• Mrs. W. W.

(Vf 1 )—In strenuous new upturns, wheat tcday .showed a rise of more than 10 cents a bushel this week. Simultaneously corn was up about 7 cents, oats 5 cents and rye about 9 cents. Evidence that Europe is becoming alarmed over disastrous crop conditions in the American northwest did much to rush all grains today to season fresh top records quotations. The maximum overnight jump in the Chicago wheat market, 3!L- cents, was surpassed both at Minneapolis and Kansas City, especially the latter which went skyward an extreme of 4-?i cents, responsive to reports of damage by drought and high temperatures not only to spring crop areas northwest but also to hard winter wheat southwest. Despite heavy profit-taking sales that at the last shaded gains somewhat, wheat in Chicago closed strong, 2 cents to 3 cents above yesterday's finish, July 939.1-94, Sept. 95H- 1 /!, Dec. 97-97Vi, corn IVj-SYt up, July 66%, Sept. 65-65Vi, Dec. 61% -Vi, oats 1%-2',B advanced, Sept.

W— (USDA)—An improved demand at eastern dressed beef markets reflected itself in the live trade at midwestem points this week, and fed steers and yearlings, after open- Ing on a lower basis, closed firm to higher at several centers. Light yearlings scaling under 900 Ibs continued to move to the best advantage. Grass cattle were in increased supply and finished weak to 25 or more lower, grass fat cows as much as 50 off. Spring lambs and yearlings are steady to unevenly lower than a week ago. The market, however, is materially higher as compared with last Saturday. .*.

The new store and filling station is located at 3QO West KlngsrniJl where they will handle the complete line of General (ires. IHGJIEUE FIGURES DISPROVE ANY OUTSIDE CAPITAL EXPLOITATION Exposition's Beauty Impressive BY H. J. STRUTH Petroleum Economist More money lias been put into ground in developing T'oXaH oil than has actually been received in vales value for all the oil produced to date! Pacts to prove this have just been compiled by The Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association of Texas, and they show that the Texas oil industry has actually spent $5,600,000,000 for oil development, from which the cumulative sales value of all crude produced to date has amounted to about $4,985,000,0000. These facts contradict unsupported statements purporting to show that Texas oil is being 1 exploited by outside capital, the financial returns from which are kept outside of our state borders. The truth is that the Texas oil industry not only reinvests all of the money received from sales of crude oil in extending developments to all parts of the state, but has actually spent $15,000,000 more than its total receipts to date in the development of this great Texas industry. These figures show further that for every dollar received from the sale of crude oil, this industry has put back into Texas oil developments one dollar and twelve cents! This noes not mean that the Texas oil industry as a whole is an unprofitable venture. Profits in the oil industry are the ultimate result of combining the various operations incident to its many activities. In the producing branch of the industry, there are many wells that show a loss in their operation, which in some instances may be absorbed by profitable operations in another producing field. It is a principle of conservation of natural resources to continue to produce oil from high-cost "stripper" wells in order to obtain the maximum ultimate recovery of oil in place. This, obviously, benefits many thousands of oil industry employed Texans, whose jobs might be terminated if all unprofitable oil wells were abandoned in favor of new, flush producing possibilities. Producing crude oil might have returned substantial profits to the industry if all non-profitable wells had been abandoned and had all money received from the sale of crude oil been stowed away in the vaults of the producers. However, as these facts prove, the oil industry lias not hoarded its profits, nor spent them outside of our state borders, but has reinvested all and more money than it received in the statewide development of an industry that has made Texas lead the world in oil. As a result of this continual reinvestment of profits in the search for new sources of oj! supply, Texas has nearly half of the ol.l reserves of the United States. prilling for oil and gas in Texas has involved a total cost to date of $2,777,000,000, including' $96,000,000 spent for gas wells.

Tile Quaker State Oil company, with home offices in Pampa, blocked 40,000 acres covering the south half of the Clapham structure In June and July, 1935. At that time they had in mintl bringing in an extension to the Moore county oil and gas pool. A heuvy flow of gas was struck In the Zurick No. 1 being drilled by the Superior Oil and Gas company and the Olson Drilling company of Tulsa, Oklahoma, at a depth of 1.200 feet. It was necessary to case the gas off before .trilling deeper. The company has set in inch casing and is now drilling ahead at 1.400 feet.

Farmers and landowners have received for leaso rentals, bonuses and royalties, the stupendous sum of $1,141,000,000. Cumulative expenditures by the Texas oil industry for wages and salaries, materials and supplies, taxes, insurance, interest and overhead have amounted to $1,775,000.000. In addition, many more millions of dollars are represented by investment in properties, plant anci equipment. All o fthis money has extended the benefits of oil development to every section of our state and has materially strengthened its future industrial position and economic welfare.

TO TUB HIT IN REPORT MOTORISTS PAYING FOR HIGHWAYS, GET HATCHERIES WASHINGTON, June 20—Motorists in 1934 paid one billion dollars in gasoline taxes and license fees in the naive belief they were buying new roads anst maintaining old ones. Actually, the Bureau of Public Roads reveals, they bought some very fine fish hatcheries and several first class oyster beds—and a few mUes of highway. 'iH><$ More than $140.000,000 of the motorists' supposed investment in highways, according to the Bu- renii's analysis, were diverted to such projects as fish hatcheries, oystevbeds, government buildings, docks and sea walls, the payment of salaries and pensions and the retirement of' government debts. The diverted funds, the Western Petroleum Refiners association reports, deprived motorists of some 28.000 miles of well surfaced, all weather highways, an average of 580 miles in each state. The gigantic diversion also deprived farmers of about $200,000.000 in land value since it has been estimated that the improvement of I 1 , dirt road with a low-cost, all- year surface adds $21 an acre to the average farm value. Each mile of improved rural road serves about 360 acres so about 10,000,000 acres were deprived of mud relief—at $21 an acre. In lieu of the highway facilities they expected from their investments, both motorists and farmers are invited to inspect the fish hatcheries and the oyster beds. Gasoline taxes and license fees may be paid en route. Read The News Want-Ads. Fairground Work Resumed Friday Work on Pampa's No. 1 WPA project.

At least, we know that our bank is glad to have them—for checking accounts constitute one of the most important financial services we render to the people of this community. A checking account is a valuable service to depositors. Naturally, it costs the bank money to handle every account. These expenses include check books, signature cards, deposit slips, other supplies and necessary time and cost of handling the account. Consequently, the bank expects an adequate balance to be kept in the account in order that its earnings will help to cover its cost. Otherwise, a moderate service charge is ordinarily made. If you do not have a checking account now we invite you one here. OFFICERS A. Combs, Chairman of the Board DeLea Vicars, President, J. R. Roby, Vice-President, Edwin S. Vicars, Cashier, J. O.
