West Texas was Humble Oil
& Refining Company's most active
area during the past year aa far as
drilling was concerned. The com-
pany drilled 172 oil wells, 7 gas
wella, and 25 dry holes. Eleven
drilling rigs arc currently working
in West Texas.
There was also one new oil field
discovery by a wildcat well in
West Tvxas by Humble. This was
in Garza County, Texas. Field
wildcat wells also accounted for
two discoveries in Howard County,
both in the Howard Glasscock
field, and one each from the Seven
Rivers and the San Andres.
Humble first started drilling and
production in West Texas in the
McCamey field in 1925. In that
same year Humble Pipe Line Com-
pany completed the first major
pipe line into the area. The line
connected the Big Lake Field with
Humble’s main North Texas-to-
Wester line at Comyn.
The daily average production of
oil and condensate in July in the
area was about 39,886 barrels. The
company has 2001 producing wells
in this region and there are 637
production department employees
in the area.
The exploration department has
265 employees working out of the
division office at Midland. Four
seismograph crews are operating
in the area with two in Pecos
County and one each in Sterling
and Borden Counties. One gravity
meter crew is working in Reeves

The officer* of the Texas Sheep
and Goat Raisers Association and
those of 30 other Texas livestock
and agricultural organizations, in
an unprecedented move, have join-
ed in announcing a series of six
regional livestock meetings to he
held all over Texas later this year.
These organizations, through
Texas Animal Health Council, are
called the meetings to discuss with
all Texas livestock producers the
need for an expanded animal health
program in Texas. Harold Nelson,
San Antonio, who heads the Ani-
mal Health Council, declared that
"Texas cannot any longer afford
the reputation of being the ‘dump-
ing ground’ for animal diseases.
Our billion dollar livestock indus-
try deserves the best reputation
possible so as to be accepted at
markets anywhere in the world.
The six regional meetings will kick
off a vigorous statewide effort to
put Texas livestock in the number
one spot in the U. S. so far as ani-
mal health is concerned.”
T. A. Kincaid, Ozona, Texas
Sheep and Goat Raisers Associa-
tion President, said these meet-
ings were of great importance to
sheep and goat men all over the
state and urged that they attend
these regional meetings.
A special task force of speak-
ers will discuss the Council's plan

2. Plans for control of diseases
such as hog cholera, brucellosis,

made possible for the 500 patients.
Before this Patient Christinas
Gift Shop was initiated, many pat-
ients deserted the hospital against
medical advice during the holidays,
which resulted in harm to the pa-
tient, his family and his communi-
ty. The Gift Shop has decreased
the number of patients leaving while
they still have active tuberculosis.
This desertion reduction has been
possible because dignity has been
added to the patients by enabling
them to select gifts for their loved
ones. This opportunity and privi-
lege of giving helps patients to
accept hospitalization more readi-
ly knowing their families are rem-
embered. All this shopping and
mailing is done at no cost to the
patient through the generosity of

PETROLEUM - basic to the needs of our time
Oil and natural gas have powered most of
the great technological advances of modern times;
petroleum hydrocarbons have transformed the
dreams of inventors into the realities of engineers
. . . Today, in the United States, oil and natural
gas provide about 75% of the country’s energy
requirements; and large quantities of oil, avail-
able for production beyond immediate need, are
necessary to the national security.
An- obvious example is the gasoline that
powers our automobiles; another is the diesel
fuel burned by post-war railway engines. But do
not overlook electric power plants, the airplane,
whether jet or propeller driven, factory power
plants, farm mechanization, and the revolution
since World War II in home heating devices.
Oil provides the energy that moves the trucks,
airplanes, ships and tanks of our Armed Forces.
But petroleum as a source of energy is only
part of the story. In the past two decades, the
petrochemicals have supplied the country with a
vigorous new industry: already most of our
Family and Coach approved.
We can accommodate up to 200 persons.

rubber is made from petrochemicals ... the
ubiquitous plastics derive from petroleum prod-
ucts ... paraxylene, a petrochemical, is the raw
material for one of the most useful of the new
fabrics. In this area, wonders never cease; the
petrochemicals contribute more each year to the
efficiency, comfort, and convenience of modern
Thus, oil’s progress has made other progress
possible all along the front of American industry
. . . Petroleum is the American resource that is
basic to the needs of our time ... that is essential
to our national security.
