Slanted Oil Well Hearing Begins By PINTS MOTHERSHEAD proved hone dry-but next door DALLAS (AP) — Lawmakers to acreage containing established sought today to determine who|P°ols. Primarily the probe con- stole millions of dollars by angling oil wells underneath somebody else's property. Teaming with Atty. Gen. Will Wilson, the Texas House General Investigating Committee called nearly 100 witnesses to a hearing. Wilson and the Railroad Commission have been inquiring since April into a mushrooming scandal. The Federal Petroleum Board also has been gathering evidence. Wilson estimated $10 million a month in pirated oil is involved. He said there is reason to believe at least one well has produced stolen crude for a dozen years. Investigators have found several wells pumping oil on leases LC Child Hit by Car At Hackberry cerns the vast East Texas Field and others in the same area, where well spacing rules did not make slant-hole drilling costs prohibitive. Test crews report discovery of 118 such crooked holes, deviating more than the legal maximum of three degrees from verticle, in the East Texas Field; nine in the Hawkins Field in East Texas; and one in the Webster Field near Houston. A suspected well is being checked in the Quitman Field. The Railroad Commission severed pipeline connections for all wells on eases where one or more violates the law. This left 538 wells with a daily allowable of 9,311 barrels, worth about $3 a barrel, without market outlets. The state has sued for penalties nf $1,000 a day against operators of several leases found to contain illegally slanted wells. Some owners who suspect the siphoning of oil from underneath their properly by neighbors have filed civil damage suits. t .u* ni, i • t i i Tlie committee hearing is t h c Lake Charles tot was in a jfirst move toward a CCm1 p rehen .

By LESLtE J. NASON, ED. D. Professor of Education, University of Southern California The start of a new school term . is a little like New Year's Day. | Just about every student makes I a resolution that he will try to do' better during the coming term, i But a resolution merely to do : better is quite useless. The only | resolutions that produce results) are those which outline specific j plans of action. j I have formulated a set of reso- j lutions which will not only help i students carry them out but will] make school more pleasant and interesting and bring better grades at the same time. I WILL take charge of my education, formulate a plan of attack for each course and keep revising my plans as I discover improved techniques. 1 WILL try to go beyond the as- • signmcnts in each course, realizing that 15 or 20 minutes of thinking about what I have learned and what is coming up next is valuable. I WILL learn to read effectively for each course. First, I will glance through and try to anticipate what I am going to find out. Second. I will read rapidly to find out. Finally I will recite back what was said at the end of each section. I WILL c o n t r o 1 my atlention and strive to do a careful, accurate job on examinations. I WILL improve my listening skills. I will read or outline ahead and think about what is being said in class and fit il in wilh whal I already know. I WILL review each course from Ihe beginning every few days and jkeep the overall patlern clear in j my mind. j I WILL begin preparing for ex- i animations with the first meeting j of the class, making final preparations a polishing-up rather than a cram session. I WILL strive to improve my | handwriting through practice because I need case in handwriting lo transfer my thoughts to paper. I WILL keep a record of assignments and keep my homework up lo dale. 1 WILL analyze my examination papers in case I do not make an A, searching for the cause of thd low grade. I WILL set a high standard of homework and, since firsl impressions are important, I will turn in my first assignments on time and in good order. I WILL dress and act like the kind of student I wish to become even if I have to think carefully each day until proper dress and action become habits. Senator Sees Good Month For Congress By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Wayne Morse, D-Ore., said Saturday he has not given up hope fof \ passage of the college education ; bill but that its prospects now do not look bright. • Morse, chairman of the Senate- i House conferees on the measure. ; told a reporter he has no plans | al the moment to call another ! meeting on the long-deadlocked | legislation. ! "I don't plan lo do that unlit it appears we can get together i on a bill," he said in reply to ! questions. "We haven't been able i to do it so far." The Kennedy adminisration has been counting on the college-p'd • measure as the one part of 'is badly battered aid-to-education ! program likely to be written into law by this Congress. | But in the conference, the meas- I ure ran into a church school con- I troversy of the kind which has ! stalled the bill to aid grade and 1 high schools since Morse steered it through the Senate in May 1951. The House in January passed a ; bill to provide $1.5 billion for col- ' lege classroom facilities, 60 per ! cent in the form of grants and 40 : per cent loans. j The Senate the following month passed a bill carrying the samo amount for classrooms but as loans exclusively.
