The well's high structural position enhances its chances of opening Lubbeck county's second oil pool. On the San Angelo topped at 4,245 feex it was S3 feet higher than the first Lubbock oiler, Lee C. Harrison and Associates No. 1 Nairn, nearly seven miles to the northwest. East of Lubbock, J. R. Sharp and associates continued to try to loosen stuck drill yipe in their No. 1 T. A. Kolman. The well is bottomed at 5,430 feet in lime and lacks only 70 feet of fulfilling contract depth requirement. Sulphur Water Found George P. Livermore, I/ic., Lubbock, No. 1 J. '£. Habee and others, northwestern Terry county wildcat was unsuccessful in its attempt to extend the Slaughter field two miles south. The well is being plugged and abandoned at a total depth of 5,316 feet in lime. Depth at 5,046 feet was corrected to 5,053 by steel line measurement. The well was cored from 5,195 to 5,200 feet, recovering five feet of Dolomite bearing a sulphur odor. A core from 5,260-70 returned 10 feet of porous Dolomite showing sulphur water and an- othex core from 5,300-16 returned 16 feet of the same type formation with water evident. Hockley Well "Flowing" Magnolia Petroleum company No. 19-B Mallet Land and Cattle company, Hockley county Slaughter field well, was completed for a rated oil flow of 1,260.64 barrels per day.

He have two great tasks to hr.s ountry, first to hold on and sec- nd to build up the positions for victorious Allied counter-offen- ive. Air Activity Reported 'Action officially reported during he day was wholly in the air. It was announced that Allied ilanes on Tuesday had raided the nemy-held airdrome at Keeping >n Dutch Timor, at the western nd of the Japanese invasion arc. :nemy planes caused alarms at 'orfc Darwin, on the northern Aus- ralian mainland, and at Port Moresby on New Guinea, but no bombs were dropped. American troops have been arriving in Australia at irregular iii- ervals for several weeks, and this tream is continuing. In it, aside rom urgently needed planes and lilots, are skilled mechanical TCWS. Are Sent Inland The ships have been docking in numerous ports, from where'men and supplies are sent inland to luge camps. The men are comfortably housed, well-fed and pleased vith Australia. One of the greatest achieve- nents has been this transport of hese men, planes and arms across he dangerous .Pacific. Each con- r oy, each ship has had its story. This correspondent came over on the first large convoy to make a non-stop voyage. Surviving four unsuccessful submarine attacks, our remodelled luxury liners, fast "reighters and warships shook off :he enemy through 10,000 submarine-infested miles in a journey :hat took the better part of a month. To Fight As Unit Lieut. Gen. Brett said in an in- .erview that Australian and American fighters would light as a single unit, using identical planes and equipment, and that he had -recommended that the U. S. take over the task of providing all aircraft for Australia. Brett, now deputy supreme commander of the Allied forces, of the southwest Pacific in addition to his air force'command, declared: "When we start rolling we shall keep on rolling. Nothing within reason' has been refused from Washington. "I have not lost faith in the Australians and they are not go? ing to lose Australia. They may have to take a little drubbing. So did- England. And England is still there." Labor Legislation (Continued From Pase One 1 * a bill by him and Rep.

Definite Statement Needed As a result of the testimony anc questioning by Senators at a closec session, Chairman Thomas (D Okla) said the Senate group un animously agreed that a definiti statement of a wartime labor pol icy was needed but that it should come from the War Labor board Thomas reported that Senator., anfi officials alike were agreec that payment at double rate on Sundays and holidays should bi eliminated but that time and oni half should be paid for all over time above 40 hours weekly. Thi; was in line with the views ex pressed by the President Complaints Are Cited Thomas and Senator Maybanl CD-SC) complained that somi workers took time off during thi regular pay rate period in orde to earn more at the higher Sun day-holiday rate without increas ing total production. Senators saic there also were complaints tha some workers were holding down production and cited testimony that some shipyard workers did only a certain amount of calkin] per .day. In the Senate chamber. Senate Lee (D-Oklal suggested that Don aid M. Nelson, War Production board chairman, cancel profits on war contracts as a means of halt mg strikes and speeding produc tion. He contended that elimina tion of profits would end a "con test between management and la bor over profits." Buy A Defense fcond TODAYI AT LEAST one deadly tentacle **• of the Japanese invasion octo- ius reaching out toward Amerian-garrisoned Australia has been 'irtually lopped off m New Gui- iea waters. That does not mean that the nainy attempt f.o seize the New Guinea bridgehead for a drive at Australia ' jt- self has been halted. It does mean, however, that invaluable time has been gained for Generalissimo MacArthur and the Allied forces. And given time and American equipment, their ability not only 'siMKnM" to hold Austr a lia SIMPSON secure but to use t 'as the springboard for an ultimate counter-attack to smash To- cyo's dream of conquest is unques- ionable. Japs Suffer Blow Navy announcement in Wash- ngton that Australian-American air forces had smashed at a pow- ;rful Japanese invasion flotilla on he east coast of New Guinea to link or damage 23 enemy craft in- :luding 12 warships is significant. .i indicates that American navy airmen, probably fighters, as well as army bombers and Australians participated in a mass. raid.

SIMPSON Wids World War Analyst Trustees Invited To Program Here Letters to superintendents and trustees of West Texas who are expected to be among the 1,500 school teachers and administrators in ths city Friday and Saturday for the West Texas Teachers association meeting, have been mailed advising them of the special session of interest to-them to be conducted at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon in room 256 of Senior High school. Program .for this particular phase of the huge gathering, which will attract delegates from 27 counties, includes: a talk by W. T. Strange of Lubbock, "Keep The School Bells Ringing;" a discussion of "Some Major Problems of a Trustee's Job," by R. S. Craddock oc Sundown; "Effects of the National Emergency on School Finances," a talk by A. C. Jackson, business manager of Lubbock Public schools, and a discussion on <; The Overlooked Part of a Trustee's Job," by Chas. A. Guy, editor of the Avalanche-Journal Publications. P. O. Smith of Whiteface is chairman of this group. Following this series of talks there will be a roundtable discussion for the group.

The warships and transports which were seriously damaged, as well as those'sunk, can be written off the war ledger indefinitely. They were struck a thousand miles, farther from repair bases available to the Japanese than those at Macassar. Only One Plane Lost The Allied air fleet which dealt the blow presumably was the most numerous and powerful, with which the Japanese had yet to deal. It escaped with'a single plane casualty. The implication is either that the attack completely surprised the enemy, or that the Allied bombers were fully fighter-protected. In either case, the Australian- American war fellowship has achieved against Japan for the first time at least local air control. It not only spotted the enemy invasion fleet but carried the battle to it. That is the penalty Japan is paying for too swift extension of her attack front' beyond the shelter of her land-based air power. Without that "umbrella," the cover of which has been outrun in a desperate effort to balk American bolstering of Australian defenses, the invasion fleet in New Guinea waters was at the mercy of Allied fighter-protected bombers winging from the mainland. Unofficial Quota ; On Stamp Buying Is Set . Purchase of approximately $2,- 000.worth o£ defense stamps and bonds per month is the unofficial "quota" which has been set lor Lubbock city employes, according to information from the city hall. The "quota" developed from a conference of department heads which follosved ' authorization by the city commission last week of the salary deduction plan to assist city employes in buying defense securities. In this conference, it was explained, the reasonable capacity of employes to buy was discussed, and from that, it was computed that the purchases should total about $2,000 per month. Officials emphasized that the purchasing is to be strictly on a voluntary basis. No blanket.rule of purchase will be suggested to employes. Officials recognize, they explained, that the problem of each employe is likely to be different. The department heads were in agreement that the plan is one the employes overwhelmingly approve.
