Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 14, 1929, Mason City, Iowa OCTOBER 14 MASON CITY GLOBSGAZETTE SEVEN OIL CANNOT BE FOUND BENEATH IOWAS SURFACE Recent Geological Survey Is Definite in Statement of States Resources DES MOINES Oct 14 well drilling in Iowa has given lit tle encouragement to oil prospect ors who hope that these secondary services might offer up proof of oil deposits W H Norton the Iowa Geological Survey declared in a on deep wells in the current issue of state geological reports Various favorable conditions Sitwe been noted in drilling in aomo parts of the state but thu oil deposits have been lacking in appre ciable quantities the report stated It is pointed out however thnt the field in Iowa regarded by J V Howcll as the one area which mer its in any degree attest for southwestern part is the area least prospected by deep wells No Oil Present The old theory that if drilling is done deep enough any mineral or oil deposit may be found has seen exploded by deep well drilling in Iowa the reason that such wells have for the most part gone down to strata beyond which oil or miner al is not deemed existent Aa a rule deep wells have gone deep the deepest of them hardly exceed 3000 find any there pos sibly can be the report stated The wells however have amply repaid the drillers by the deliv er No Cornier or Iron L The report further staled in part As to copper and iron and Other precious metals the futility of pros pecting for them in Iowa is shown by an elementary geology of the state As to coal the areas where it may be found have long since been mapped But in the case of oil the conditions of its accumulation are such that each deep well aunk has had some value as a prospect hole for that locality Every deep well drilled in Iowa is carefully ex amined for presence or absence the conditions indicating oil In general the lie of the strata of the state is proved by its deep well sections to be too uniform to favor the structures necessary for oil accumulation Yet occasionally as at Oakdale Ames and perhaps at Failfield the drill has found marked upwards of the deeper beds Of hundreds of wells drilled scarcely one has shown even a trace of oil Allison Grocery Is United With Chain ALLISON Oct broth ers store of Allison has joined in the Great Rite Way system chain liy this movement they will remain an independent unit but will have

ALLIED FORGES FINALLY VACATE Resort City on Rhine Is Over joyed When Soldiers Leave Town BAD KREUZNACH Oct 14 Of all Rhenish spas affected by the allied occupation none has received with greater joy the news that the last soldier of the Entente is to leave Germany than this famous ra dium brine bath on the Nahe river near ils confluence into the Rhine Bad Kreuznach before and during the war was one of the most fash ionable spas in Germany Former Kaiser Wilhelm II his Field Mar shal General von Hindenburg and Quartermaster General Ludendorff for months made it their headquar ters Visitors are still shown the rooms in the Kurhaus in which his Majesty used to live and the salon bath in which Hindenburg under went a radium brine bath cure After the war the French occu pied the town They located their headquarters and officers mess right across the street from the Kurhaus so that every visitor must needs see the French flag and the French uniforms Thus tho the armies of occupation adversely af fected the attendance at all spas within the occupied area this was particularly true of Bad Kreuznach where the presence of French troops was unusually conspicuous Kreuznach will feel as tho it were taking a new lease of life Major Richard Prausnitzer director of the Kreuznach spa said There is no doubt but that the foreign oc cupation has hurt us more than any other watering place in the Rhine land Not only Germans but also many Americans and Russians who used to come here did not like to be in a place in which military com manders could issue orders to tho population no matter how tactful these commands might be Funeral Services for Rowan Woman Are Held ROWAN Oct serv ices for iirs George Whitten who died Thursday night at her home in Rowan were held at the Con gregational

college of commerce Per sonal interviews revealed attitudes in support of existing capitalistic industry and fear of changes of rev olutionary nature Fear Radical Dominance Labor viewpoints proved not orig inal but a reflection of propaganda presented in school and thru cam paigns What they have been taught is the belief in the status quo which makes them conservative Sociolog ist Yoder reports Progress they vaguely favor but distrust marks their attitude toward rapid or radical developments Fear of radical dominance prevents their support of an addition to the two party system in United States poli tics On the fence with regard to na ionalism the workers want isola ion and freedom from world in rigues or international propaganda campaigns but opposing war and regarding excessive patriotism as dangerous offset their restricted view of world affairs Favor American Plan The findings of Mr Yoder rc orded in the fifth volume of Iowa Studies in Business include the discovery that
