FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 21, 1924 THE HUTCHINSON NEWs, COL SMITH FINDS COMRADES HERE It Greeted by Ex-Soldier* who Fought in HU Division. GAVE AN ADDRESS "Fighting Major" of the 90th Now Fighting for Law Enforcement. When Col, Dan Morgan Smith, ol Hollywood, Calif., who gave an address on law enforcement Inst night at the FirBt Presbyterian church under the auspices of the Anti-Saloon League, finished his address ha found a group of young men at the platform, after the service, to greet him, They were former soldiers who had served with him In Franco, iind who knew him as the "fight- tag major." , In the group wero three men who had Bervod under lilm, Wm. W. Smith of McPherson, who was in Co. C, Geo. Stewart, of 105 Avo. B east, Hutchinson, who was in Co. F. both in the 357th Inf., 90th division, W. O. BlkliiB, of McPherson, •who served in the 344th Machine Gun battalion, attached to the lane outfit. The Battalion of.Death." Col. Smith commended tho First battalion 358th Inf., !)0th division, known as the "Battalion of Death," becauso of Its tremendous loBsea In the fighting In the Argonnc. There was lolly reunion as the colonel and some of" his flghtlni; men met and talked over old times together. Col. Smith, who Is a lawyer by profession, Is deeply Interested In the fight being waged by the churcheB of America, and tho Anti- Saloon league, which he calls the "church of action," against tho liquor Interests. "We fought the war against Cor- Jnany to protect our land against a foe," said Col. Smith, "but find today a foe even more dnmaglng right In our midst, We find men who call themselves good citizens, and , who move In the best society and are accepted In the best circles, who are deliberately trampling the constitution and laws ot our country under foot." Obligations of Citizenship. There are three obligations of , every good citizen, Col. Smith declared. First, to ralso a family as It should be raised. Second, to servo the country whenovor called ton and that means every election day, too. And, third, to worship God, and let the world know you're not afraid to. "We've got to get back to the old time religion," declared Col. Smith. 'Tin not a. preacher. I'm jliat a lawyer and a soldlor. I'm 'not good enough to be u preacher. Hut I'll tell you If wo don't get woro of the old time religion Into tliis world we're going to smasht . "We call ourselves a Christian nation, but I wonder sometimes if we really are. Uist year thero were more murders in my home Rtato, California, than In all Bug, land. The avorage ago of tho criminals of America at present Is less than 23. Citizens of the Future. "These boys and girls of today * are the ones who are to run the country of the future. But what kind of citizens nro wo rearing. If they are to run this country we had better be teaching them to nay their prayers and to have respect for Cod and country. But wa flud them not even respecting their own parents. "1 don't blame the boys and girls ao much. It is the parents who are at fault. We call ourselves Chrls" tlans. How inany homes are there today where you find tho family altar? How many families havo (Trace at the table?" The gravo danger to America, tho soldier-orator declared, Is In the bold and flagrant manner In which laws are defied and tho very constitution trampled under foot by •o-called host citizens. The National Menace. , "They boaBt that they'll not obey •fce prohibition law because they don't like it and because they didn't vote for it," said the speaker. "Well, my friends, tho radical who •tanda on the street corner urging .that tho flag be torn down and tho red flag hoisted because he doesn 't like the way our government does things Is not nearly so much an lt enemy of our government, as this 'so-called good citizen who defies the constitution. "Our boys aren 't going to pay tnuch attention to a. dirty-faced •'poison-mouthed radical Bolshevik . But when they see the leadln business man, the substantial cltl everybody everyday •atPbStS bian «, flakes fvna$ an Ounce offtewnUOt zen who boasts that he has his bootlegger and gets his liquor, in spite of the laws, our boys are liable to get the idea that If It is all right for Mr. flood Fellow to break the law, he can do It also. Bettsr Ba on Guard. "That's the menace ot our country today. And my friends, we who love America had better be on our guard, The so-called good citizen Who tramples tho constitution and laws under root, defiantly, should be In tho penitentiary breaking rock, Instead ot on the golf course ot a gentleman's club, or holding his head high In a Chamber of Commerce." A largo audience greeted Col. Smith and loudly applauded his patriotic utterances. Albert Thomson presided as chairman ot the meeting, and Elmer Ellsworth lead the singing of patriotic songs. Gowant Talked To the Kiwanis Club James W. Gowatis, superintendent of Hutchinson schools, talked at the regular meeting of the Kiwanis club, following the regular weekly dinner at tl > Chamber of Commerce last erenln.;. His topic was "Seven Objectives In Education." The seven objectives were worthy home membership, worthy use o£ leisure time, vocation, good citizenship, fundamental processes, ethical ' training and health. In his talk ho explained that thero were • many cities In Kansas wth a higher tax rate than In Hutchinson. The members ot the board ot education were tho guests of the club.

The Everleigh has the hole down to v about 3670 feet with the bit believed to be In a cap rock which Is hoped to cover an oil sand. The crews are straight reaming the five Inch casing to set it down to this rock. The casing was pulled, as the hole was In good shape and straight reaming thought to be the best thing to do and the most easy way to accomplish the result desired. If no oil ls'found In this well, beyond what was found higher up where there was a good showing, there will be some disappointments at Hoislngton. Other Bottom Wells. Good progress is also being made at the Taul well, being completed by Wichita parties, with tho Haynes drilling crews doing the work. This hole la down near 2,000 feet and drilling ahead. The Bock well, farther to Iho east und in what Is known «s tho Little Cheyenne bottoms, has tho big casing in to protect from surface troubles and tho holo down 'o about 550 foet. This rig was recently changed from a rotary outfit to standard 1 tools and the rig skidded and .a new holo started 60 feet away. . The Cheyenne Bottoms have waited long for an oil field but the Roxaus. company, drilling tho Everloigh, seems to beliovo that it is to get a ro-1 well at last and start something np that way. Bottoms to the northeast was flowing oil over the top of the old casing that lias been In tho well for several years. Tho Croat Bend people were unable to confirm this. Later It. was said that thero Is nn artesian flow in places in tho Bottoms nnd that this wna evidently what was happening at tho Sooy, Hie water coming over the top having a rainbow showing ot oil iu It. Tho Sooy was drilled very deep but it. only had a three-inch holo at the bottom and this was In a sea of mud, and there has been no definite way to find out Jufit what that test Is good tor. MAY DEEPEN THE MOHR OIL TEST. While tho officers ot the Starr- Jonnlngs -ompany, which drilled the Mohr well south of town, havo made no statement about it, there Is a possibility that. If tho proper arrangements can bo mndo with tho drilling contractor, the Mohr may be drilled to a greater depth. There Is some talk that, the hole may go down to 4,000 o 4,200 foet and that a good portion of tho money Is in sight to tnako this possible, It IRWIN WELL DRILLING AHEAD BELOW 3050. Tho No. 1 Irwin well, ne, 21-20- 6w, drilled by Morgan Brothers for Stamey and associates,'is drilling below 3050 fco and in water, hoping to pick up another water Band expected near this same depth, then setting the casing down to shut it off. It is the belief that the Welch oil sand should he picked u;> in this well at about the Welch depth or not far from that. would be encouraging It that section ot the Hutchinson district could have a deep test. RUNNING FIVE INCH PIPE AT O'HALLORAN. The drilling crews are planulng to run the five Inch casing at the O'Hnlloran well, nw. 2S-25-tiw, southwest of Castleton. The holo Is down tq about 3275 feet and Is full ot water. Tho string ot five inch pipe will shut this off and put the holo In good shape for continuing to drill. It is plannod to drill thl° test on down to about 3000 foet. SURE TO GO DEEPER IF MONEYCOMES IN There Is almost n certainty that the Snlloe well will be drilled deeper. This is true it the men and women Interested in the well pay their assessment as many of (hem have already done. It will require the heln>ot everyone to do this but It. seems quite probable that thero vyill he activity at the test beginning again some time next week. RECRUITING OFFICE IS REOPENED HERE Sgt.
