LA JOLLA. Calif. (AP) using only Minar to guide them reported hitting a tiny hole feet deep on the Atlantic Ocean floor Wednes- day. The hole 16 feet in diameter was drilled earlier ai a point 300 miles cast of New England. A new drill bit was attached, and Ihe bit dropped back in. Scnpps Institution of Ocea- nography here, announcing the re-entry- as scientists returned to Boston Harbor, said it will allow inspection of the ocean floor as never before. The feat was accomplished about midnight last Sunday af- ter 12 days of trials off the Glmar Challenger, a research ship1 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Scnpps manages the project for which million recently was set aside by the National Science Foundation. The scient- ists involved come also from Woods Hole Oceanographic In- stitution, the University of Miami, Columbia University and the University of Washing- Ion. In its two-year drilling program has turned up traces of oil in the deep ocean bed of the Gulf of Mexico; the oldest sediments ever recov- ered from the ocean about 160 million years con- firmation, say scientists, of a theory thai the sea floor is slowly spreading. The re-entry meant sending down a 16-foot cone with the or- iginal dnll string and btl. When the bit was worn out. it and the drill strings were pulled buck aboard the drilling ship. The funnel-shaped re-entry cone re- mained on the ocean floor over original hole. On its cight-sidtil nm were three acoustic reflectors. Afuv r.c-A bit was put on Ihe drill wa> a lowered but this time carrying in its tip a scanning sonar device. When the device neared the ocean floor, it homed in on the acous- tic reflectors with this fact showing on a control panel aboard ship. The drill pipe was also outfitted with a sideward-thrusting water jet about 60 feet above the bit. By pumping sea water from the surface down Ihe drill string and out the jet. engineers guided the string and bit to the cone ami through the cone to the hole. Seven Wild Steers Range S.B.
