1 dropped in on the annual Gra-
ham Invitation Golf Tournament,
'ust Sunday and found a counle of
items worth mentioning. There
were a few local boys entered. Ray j
Ferguson, a senior at North Texas
State, was in the championship
flight; Guinn Ferguson. Ray's
younger brother, now a student at
Texas Tech. was in the second
flight, as was "l'ooch" Pearson.
Winter WimhI was a third flighter.
Winter became a weather cas-
ualty . . . Pearson was beaten in
the semi-finals . . . Ray Ferguson
finished 8th . . . and though Guinn
was defeated in the finals, (vic-
tim of a water hole and a fence)
he managed to win a fine golf bag
as a runner-up prize.
Ray was' hitting his tee shots
long, accurate, and beautiful, but
his short iron shots and potts
gave him much misery. He re-
marked that his play at Graham
was his worst tournament golf to
da'e. Normally. Ray is death from
loil yards out. but his short game
iust wouldn't work for him.

THE OIL & GAS PROBLEM IN OUR DISTRICT
■Open Letter to All the People Who Depend on the Oil Business in the
17th Congressional District
T1 ip*ie .ire mi rich l rajrjrar«l oil i mi in llif ITiIi • '<>ngiv .sional I>i-.trii t. 'ITe* are all .stnijrgltnjr pnnHnrrs. I.

Immhle. srnsiM*. and gracious. This district of ours dei>ends on the "271 ■>'< depletion allowance more than
any other district in the nation. In fact, we should have 10'# depletion allowance instead of 27';<'#.
With the ever growing move l v Eastern self-interest groups toward reducing the deplection allowance to
I.V# or even less, the whole economy of the 17th Congressjptnal District is being placed in jeopardy. A large
(xirtion of our district's population de|>end directly *i i some phase of the oil business. A reduction in the
depletion allowance will cause drilling contractors to g > bankrupt, throwing hundreds of families into debt
and without livelihood. Risk money will vanish. Marginal oil o|>erators will In? forced to shut their wells
down. Service companies will go broke. Independent ge dogists and engineers will lie out of work, l andowners,
farmers, and ranchers will be without money from lea-e rentals and Ixinttses. landowners will not get their
lands tested. It is a certainty thatToreign oil import will increase and the* independent oil operators will lie
squeezed out of business. The 17th Congressional District, composed of Taylor. Jones. Eastland. Stephens.
Comanche. Palo Pinto. Erath. Nolan. Fisher, Hamilton. Callahan and Shackelford counties, is the independent
oil man's territory. Small fields and marginal produc ion is the mainstay of our district's economy. Farmers
and ranchers depend on oil royalties when there is no riin and when the market is low on crops and cattle.
MercharQs'Ulewnd «%. the oil man's payroll, and the oi' man in this district depends on the depletion allowance
and control o? fw„ imports. Lowering the depl >tion allowance means only one thing to we. the people
of the I7tn tongrtk ^District—a depression in th middle of al>undance. with hundreds of thousands of
barrels of oil laving % ""i and unused while our fn -eign friends tow richer and richer on the oil brought
into this country whitfe growing poorer and po< rer in our^distr'ct.
It is axiomatic that with\
