remember. We must remember that
they have no proration and no con-
trols. We must remember that we
do have proration and controls and
that we have very high production
costs which they don't have.
"I intend to do everything in
my power to see that the recom-
mendations of this report are not
implemented in any way in the form
of legislation. This reflects an anti-
petroleum business attitude on the
part of the Administration. I cer-
tainly will oppose it."
Senator Tower said he would do
everything that he can to oppose
any punitive legislation against
the petroleum industry.
As yet we have not seen a simi-
lar statement issued by Senator
Ralph Yarborough. And who is it
who says; "We probably won't."
Yarborough is a strong Kennedy-
crat. A Ivennedycrat is one who
would regulate your life from the
cradle to the grave.
A Konnedycrat would use force,
if necessary, to compel you to do
what he (the Kennedyci'at) wants
you to do. It is time YOU did
something to stop this pell-mell
rush to complete Federal domina-
tion and control.
It is later than you think, not
only in the oil business, but in all
other phases of our life as well.
Hero is our late drill report,
East Hamman (Southeast Bay
City)—The Texas Railroad Com-
mission has ruled that Union Tex-
as Petroleum Corporation's No. 1
Kilbride is not a new discovery
but an eastern extension to the
East Hamman Field. Therefore,
the application to name it a new
field called Barkley was denied.
The operator's No. 2 Kilbride is
going deeper after running a log
at 10,900 feet.
Tidehaven—Adolph Smith is test-
ing No. 1 Benjamin B. Pierce,
which is at a depth of 8,800 feet.
Mad Island Slough—The opera-
tor of the Pierce Estate wildcat
southeast of Collegeport is Union
Carbide Olefins Company. It is to
go to 6,000 feet in the Niocene.
East Big Hiil—Falcon Seaboard
Drilling Company's 1-A Baer is at
a total depth of 17,000 feet and is
going to test the various sands re-
portedly encountered on the trip
down. This wildcat, which has caus-
ed a multitude of rumors, is on
the east flank of the Big Hill
Dome and the geological formations
are said to be running considerably
higher than those in Magnolia Pe-
troleum Company's LeTulle, thus
indicating the upsweep character
of a dome. The production area,
if any, may not be as far-reach-
ing in mileage as hoped.

poration's N. 1 V. C. Murphy is
waiting on a potential test as a

Women Meet With
Mrs. W. L. Ellis
Situated for beauty, and stand-
ing high above the banks of the
Tres Palacios River, is the W. L.
Ellis home, scene of the August
meeting or the Collegeport Women
of the Presbyterian Church.
The meeting was highlighted by
the presence of Mr. and Mrs. Steve
Kerr. Mr. Kerr, a Seminary stu-
dent and pastor during the past
summer has endeared himself to
his many Collegeport friends by
the dramatic simplicity and dir-
ectness of his sermons.
Mrs. Dean Merck was moderator
for the day and her skillful hand-
ling of the discussion, "The King
is disgraced," together with the en-
thusiastic and vivid contributions
of both Mr. and Mrs. Kerr, made
the day one long to be remembered.
Mrs. Kerr, who substituted for
the absent representative of the
"Monthly Emphasis," awakened
apathetic thought to the glorious
possibilities of personal evangelism.
During the social hour, the host-
ess, Mrs. W. L. Ellis, served cof-
fee, iced drinks and sweets to her
Among those present were Mes-
dames Gust Franzen Sr., Roy Nel-
son, E. A. Mixon, Dean Merck,
John Merck Sr., P. V. Corporon,
R. L. Corporon, John Merck Jr.,
R. L. Wells, Gerald Wells, Miss
Margaret Holsworth and the honor-
ed guests Mr. and Mrs. Steve Kerr.
The average person blinks his
eyelids between four and six times
Mrs. James Milam and son ^
Ricky, Cheryl Milam, Miss Jo Ann
Hendricks and Robert Hendricks
have returned from a most enjoy-
able visit to Six Flags Over Texas.
Good manners are shown by be-
ing able to put up with bad ones.
