TRC Raises Oil Producing Days To 1 1 THE HUNTER Raymond Fields, 701 N. Dwight, displays some of the ^bowmanship that has made him the Robin Hood of the Panhandle. But this Robin Hood has a yen for archery golf as well as venison and the green wood. Old Robin probably made his own bows and arrows ,so that, being perfectly matched, they would kill more deer, And Fields is a past master at the bow maker's art. (News Photo) Fire Insurance Is Difficulty (UP!) - The Texas Railroad Commission has boosted the state's oil allowable for August 32?,338 barrels per day raising permissive production to 2,9tf,211 barrels daily. The commission raised the number of producing days foi August to 11, an increase of two days over the current level, in thi face of optimistic estimates bj oilmen of current inventories ant demand. Action came at a state-wide oi proratioh hearing, marking the second straight upturn, after Tex as dipped to the all-time low o eight producing days, smallest i: the state's history. Both the state-wide and Eas Texas level were placed at l: days. Special field allowables includ ed Headlee Devonian and Dor c Roberts Devonian, S i x day each; Howard Glasscock, 20 days and Dye Mound South Bend Con« glomerate, lo days. Most major oilmen appearing at the hour-long hearing expressed be-lief the August allowable should be increased to either 10 or 11 days. R. E. Carraway, speaking for standard Oil Co. of Texas, requested the highest figure of 13 days, along with F. G. Swanson of Tyler, representing the East Texas Oil and Gas Assn.

But at the end of the hunt, an arrow is just as lethal as a bullet. In the past five years, Fields has built some 200 bows. Fields, who lives at 701 N. Dwight, does not have a gun in the house. He became acquainted with Vhe bow 7 years ago when he read a magazine article about a woman who had killed a deer with an arrow. His immediate thought was "how sporting that would be." Fields looked around until he found a man In Kellerville, Joe Bruten, who knew the bow. Then he aold all his guns. "I got more gome with a bow than I ever did with a gun," he •ays, "because I have hunted more with a bow." From his experience with bows, Fields can say that the modern, curved bow Is not as efficient, a hunting weapon as the straight, long bow. On the other hand, the curved bow Is a must for match shooting. Fields Is a member of the Top o' Texas Bowmen, a group that goes in for everything. One ol their pastimes is archery golf. "You approach the green and shoot the ball," says Fields. The ball rests on a slake 10 inches above the ground. According to Fields, Pampa has from 30 to 40 archers. He would be glad to cue anyone on the way of archery. "If equipment is no matched, the very best archer can not do any good," he observes "The arrow must be matched to the bow. All arrows must be identical." Many individuals become disgusted with archery, Fields' believes, because they pick up their equipment helter skellpr. T h e n they feel that archery is something they can never become pro- ace to the maple core. There are wo laminations of wood and two of fiberlas. Gields says they must match within 3000th of an nch. He finds that Port Arthur Cedar makes the best shafts. But Fields doesn't have to make very many. 'I don't see any sense in a man oslng a bunch of arrows," he says. "Lots of people like to think an Indian could kill a deer running at a hundred yards." he says. "That's not the way they did It. They slipped up on them." And that is where the run comes in. As far as Fields is concerned all the sport is in the stalking. When he goes bird hunting, he takes a dog along. But he doesn't see much sport in having ficient at. Not so when a heavy drinker took up the bow. "He became so taken with archery," says Fields, "that he gave up drinking." Fields builds his bows from rock maple and fiberglas. Using a form, he glues the fiberglas bac* and Ex-Convict Admits To Gunning Boss BIG SPRING, Tex. (UPI)— Ralph L. Gilbert, 21, an ex-con vict from San Angelo, has been charged with murdering the wealthy 85-year-old rancher for whom he worked. Howard County Sheriff Miller Harris said Gilbert admitted blow- Ing Clayton Stewart's face away with a high-powered rifle Thursday and then dumping the body in Stewart's car. It wasn't found until Friday. Gilbert signed a statement admitting he murdered Stewart, whose large ranch accommodates a number of cattle and several oil wells, He said he was going to sell as' many of the rancher's cattle as he could. Deputies said Gilbert had been out of prison for only a "few weeks." He was arrested in San Angelo with Stewart's billfold in his pocket. John Perkins, a 40-year-old Negro an <llhe other only employee of Stewart, said Gilbert came to him Friday and told him their boss Imd said to sell some cattle. They sold four and Gilbert went buck to the ranch for more, Perkins became suspicious and called authorities, who found Stewart's body slumped in his car and wrapped In blankets in a clump of cedars near his ranch house. But hunting Is Fields' true love.| a dog tree an ftn | ma i so that he can walk up and blast it. The bow's greatest limitation Is its' greatest asset. "No man can say how accurate he is with a bow over a distance of 60 yards. A bow should not be shot over 60 yards," he emphasizes. It is that difficult to take pot shots with a bow. Fields gets almost lyrical when he speaka of outsmarting animals and getting them in their own territory. Pick Proof Lock! CHICAGO (UPD—Burglars had best brace themselves — a "pick| proof lock" may be unveiled at the Associated Locksmiths of America meeting which began here Saturday. Air Force Sgt.
