TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1924 THE HUTCHINSON NEWS, 'AGE mrsr.. WORKING OUT TRAFFIC PLAN Raich Haakard, City Commit' •ioner, Planning Two Boulevard* Now. Oil and Gas News A HOISINGTON MAN HIT IT RIGHT 14 OUT OF 15 TIMES MASTER VIOLINIST A TRENCH DIGGER Raich Haikard, city commit•toner of atreett, and other member! of the city commit•Ion, are working ' i • plan for a part boulevard system for Hutchinson. Poplar and Adams street* hive been teleoted for the tettt and to find out if the plan It a practical one. Make Them Boulevards. The plan IB to moke thoBe two •treots, for north and south traffic, "througli*' streets, where the driver would have the right of way and whcro drivers who cross either of these would have to bring his ear to a dead stop before crossing the boulevard and thon to cross or get Into the traffic In that boulevard without In anyway interfering with It. The plan has been In effect In -larger cities for years and 1ms been tried with fair Buccess in Wichita, Wellington. Newton and Salina, In this immediate vicinity in the past few months. Planned for Poplar. Poplar Btreot, for instanco would be made a boulevard from Avenue* C to Twentieth street, nt the entrance to the fair grounds. Every car that approached Poplar from the east or west, to cross It or to drive Into It and travel It, would be compelled to come to a dead atop before doing BO . Then when driving across or into It care would have to be taken to "merge gently" into the traffic without halting or disturbing it. Make Faster Time. This would enable the north and south cars, In theso mostly traveled streets, to-make faster time and he certain of no interference. It would enable a large pnrt of the traffic that now travels Main street to go either the two blocks east or the two blocks west to use the boulevard thoroughfares where better and unhindored time would he possible. At Cross Boulevards. Mr. llaskard also considers inak- " lng everyone stop, going north and * south. In Poplar street, at Fourth avenue, where there Is a street car lino and whcro there is much east ,• and west traffic. This would mean that everyone, from north, south, oast or west, would have to come ' to a halt at Fourth and Poplar. It would probably mean the some thing at Fifth and Adams, where * there is much traffic both north and south and east and west, and this stopping would certainly pro- vent much opportunity for accident. Having Signs Made. , Mr. Haskard Is having concrete nlgna erected in the middle of * some of these streets for the pur. pose of calling attention of the driver to the necessity of stopping there. He may have white lines painted on the pavements and long arrows in the middle of the street, showing as the crossing Is approached, so the motorist would be warned in time. . Ask for a Trial. It la hoped the drivers will give this method a kindly trial, that everyone make nn effort to abide , by the rule which Is seeking to protect the driver and to stop accidents, it It works out, as it uhould, drivers will find a way to get to those boulevards quickly and use them, to the. bettor satisfaction of the motorist, and taking a lot of travel oft of Main street, where this protection may not bo afforded. Recently a committee of Hutehlnton men, consisting of Pet Nation, Vice -president and Fred C, French, cashier of the Flrat National bank, H. M. Heapt of the Superior Motor company, C. H. Scott of the News, Hal G. Evarts, writer for the Saturday Evening Pott and H. K. MeLeod, president of the American National bank, opened five envelopet held at the First National bank since August 12, containing predictions made by M, C. Trumbull of Hoitlngton about local oil tests. Four of these testi, for the Wernet, Bush, Miller and Cheney wells, were found to be as everyone now knowt and at Trumbull said. The fifth well, the Deed-Day, Trumbull eald on August 12 would he good for "100 to 160 barrels of oil." The committee found that thlt well had a "good showing of oil and was abandoned," made these fore Mr. Trumbull casts when the tests wore drilling and he hit four out of five. The Deed-Day, as a matter of fact, had a fine showing and Lloyd Brown, In charge of It, said lie never gave up but that It should ho nn oil well. Correct at Hoitlngton. A fow days ago a committee at Holsington, consisting of Hoy Cornelius, It. B. Avery, Peter L. Ochs nnd h. J. Barrett, opened ton envelopes held In the Farmers and Merchants State bank of Holsing­ ton since .Tuly 8 with Trumbull's predictions ou seven wells In Ilus- sell county nnd three wells In Barton'county and ho gauged all of these correctly. The reports of these committees, sworn to before a notary in both Instances, are on file at The News office. In fifteen surveys of drilling wells, Trumbull hit it correctly fourteen times. Located Other Well*. Trumhull has located, the Ever- lelgh, Taul and Bock wells In the Cheyenne Bottoni9 and tho Slfers well in the Bait Marsh and ho declared these will all be."big oil oils." He has also surveyed the Short, west of Hutchinson, and declares It is "good for from 100 to 300 barrels." There are eight other wells drilling and located which he has surveyed and which aro on filo at the First National bank here and which will be made public When they aro completed or abandoned. to stand until Henry Rosenthal, drilling contractor, could get a rig and outfit to go ahead with tho work, it Is in about 100 feet of the Little Arkansas river and close to the tracks of the Santa Fo Holyrood branch. Casing for the teBt lias been brought from the Pryor and Lockhnrt tost drilled by Rosenthal in eastern Rush county and recontly abandoned. The hole is to go down to 3k00 feet.

Wichita factories have recently been approached for contracts nnd the plan, if successful, is to pipe tho ga3 there from the Deer Creek field and distribute it to Bomo of tho larger and possibly to smaller users at a cost of 15 to 22 cents a thousand. An immense supply of natural gas has been found in that section in the past year. TO START NEW TEST NEAR LITTLE RIVER. Pryor and Lockhart of Wichita, oil operators, are getting ready to start work soon on a test to he drilled on section 1-19 -7W, north west of tho town of Little River. Tho tost was spudded In during the summer a|)d has been allowed TULSA COMPANY HAS SOME OIL LEASES. Assignments of oil and gas leases have Just been made in section 2-18-6W, northwest of the town of Little River In Rice county and a short distance from the Walker well being drilled in section 10. he Wowarth Oil and Gas company of Tulsa, Okla., gets the leases. of GUEDA SPRINGS IN A BIG GAS FIELD. Gueda Springs, southeast Hutchinson In tho eastern edge of Sumner county, is near a big gas field and immenso wells are being brought In there. So much gas has been found In that region recently, nt shallow depths, that the old bugaboo of a shortage of gas In the future seems to have disappeared for this section of the country, for It can easily be put in the plpo lines that supply, Wichita, Newton, Hutchinson and innny towns in southwestern and eastern Kansas. | MUCH DEVELOPMENT IN COWLEY COUNTY Cowley county is to see Immense oil development during the coming winter and the year 1325. This is certain from tho plans made by tno big oil companies, nearly all ot which have acreage there. There are four good fields brought In, in the past year, in Cowley, and the development is to extend from one to the other, in some places as much as twelve miles apart. There will be tests made on each section, it is stated by tho Winfield Courier which means that millions in money will be poured into that section during the coming year. Arthur Uhe, bead of the violin department of Bethany college Lindsborg, well' known composer and Victor artist, will appear on the program of the Messiah Tompie ot Music benefit concert which will lie given in Convention ball, Thursday evening, Nov. 37. Prof. Uhe, who Is a concert Ktnge favorite, and Miss Kathleen Keratitis ot Wichita, protege ot Mme. Calve, will share honors in the concert Otto Fischer, pian- iHt ot Wichita, will be the accompanist for the evening. ' In World War. On few, perhaps, did the world war play a stranger prank than on Prof. Uhe. Caught In tho net nt tho selective draft, this pupil ot Ysnyo and graduate of Brussels conservatory, landed in tho ranks of recruits at Camp Funston and was put to work shoveling coal and digging trenches. This was a new experience to the man whoso concerts had heon commanding more than $500 a night. ] With bleeding and Mistered hands he presented himself before his commanding officer one day and asked to be transferred to some other work, as trench digging was ruining his hands for the profession by which ha made his living. The officer did not deign to reply, but sent the master musician back to his work. A second and third attempt failed, but the fourth time, the officer inquired as to what profession required soft, lady-like hands. To Uhe 'H reply that he was a violinist, the officer sneered and asked him to prove It by playing on an old tiddle which was in camp. Played Old Fiddle. Uhe picked up the poor Imitation of his favorite Instrument and with swollen and calloused hands he caressed it. He ran the how over the strings. It was not much of a violin, but It responded to the touch of a master hand. Soon the instrument was laughing In the face of the little audience, cajoling, sobbing and weeping. The sneer disappeared from the face ot the commanding officer, the members of his staff wiped their eyes. Uhe did not go hack to the trenches, but following an educational test, he was placed on the psychological examining board.
