   Billings Herald (Newspaper) - October 19, 1950, Billings, Montana                                Graphic Interview Herald Question or tlie Week: "Do you think that the proposed state bill providing for the pay- ment of adjusted compensation to Montana World war II veter- ans by a 2-ccnt per pack tax on cigarcts should be D. C. "Duke" Sullen, War n veteran, Benson Co.: "Yes, it should be passed. Most stater, paid adjusted compen- sation to Won'cl war I veterans and are now making honorar- iums available to World war n veterans. How- ever, I don't see where it is a fair deal here in Montana to ac- knowledge the wai service of War n veterans and ignore that serv- ice or our many War I veterans of the state." Ed Fairing, War II veteran, Hltz construction Co.: "Yes, a lot of states have passed similar bills and I think Montana should, too. But I think that it should be mainly for the benefit of the dis- abi'ed veterans and their fami- ____ lies. They are the ones who suf- fered most from war service. And why should we only tax clgaret smokers. Why shouldn't all of the people of one state carry this tax Bill Trott, War n veteran, Trott Printing Co.: "No! The -m e n who were In serv- ice, while not hiffhly paid, dlo a job that safe- gu ar d ed our country and left them a home to return to. Why should they raise their -own costs to pay for their own compensa- some men. wouM be bene- fited" :but most' do not need to be paid this additional tax for their patriotic service to their country. Our disaibled veterans and the wi- dows and orphans of our deceased service men are the ones that are entitled to an adjusted compen- Eddie Stein, War I veteran, Salesman: "I cer- tainly do favor the bill. While the money cannot re- pay for the hard- ships and sacri- fices of oui1 men who were called into service it would show the appreciation for their service. Tlie .people of Montana shoui'd not for- get the veterans of World war H like they forgot that brave group that went from this state to in world war I." BILLINGS, MONT. PRICE 5 CENTS No. 4G.

LOUIS 15. LUNDBOIIG Noted Speaker Here Next Week for Rotary Night A former Billings boy who went to California for his college edu- cation and remained there to be- come vice-president of the Bank of America will be the featured speaker at the inter-city ladies night Rotary club dinner meeting in the ballroom of the Northern hotel next Wednesday night. The. speaker will be Louis B. Limdborg of San Francisco, whose mother, Mrs. Emma L. Lundborg lives at 203 North 26th street. Lundborg, who is a graduate of the Billings schools went to Stan- ford university at Palo Alto, Calif., and after graduating went into chamber of commerce work and became manager of the California chamber of commerce. He left chamber of commerce work to be- come vice-president of Stanford university where he served until several years ago when he was made vice-president of bhe Bank of America. Several months ago a book en- titled "Public Relations in the Local Community" was brought out by Harper and Brothers of New York. This book was written by Lundborg and pubJic relation con- sultants say that it is the first in the narrow field of public rel- ations to consider the problems in the local community, a prime fac- tor in the moulding of public opinion. Being a good citizen and neigh- bor is one of the mo.st important ways by which a business can succeed in a community, according to Lundborg in his book. Parti- cipating in local projects, aiding schools and institutions and "car- rying a full share of civic re- sponsibility" LUi'.idborg cites means by which business can .suc- ceed in a community. Montana and Wyoming Rotary members and their wives have been invited to hear Lundborg next Wednesday night. Lundborg has given many inspirational talks to clubs and other groups through- out the United States over the past years. The Billings Rotary club considers itself very fortun- ate to have the former Billings man here, according to Prank G. Connelly, club president.

To get to the top of the pole the workman used the fire department ladder truck and three wooden ladders he constructed and wired to the pole to reacli tlie pulley. The job of Inserting the cable took over two hours and attracted a larffn crowd. The polt- was erected in 1030 with a cable attached which was replaced three years ago without requir- ing1 (hi? biK clltnb to the tap.

The an- nouncement that the Farmers Un- ion Cenrral Exchange had drilled in .1 good producing wildcat well down within three fce't of a mile, or feet to hit a 31.0 gravity oil which flowed at :K barrels an hour. It is reported thai the well has a potential of several hundred barrels a. day. The discovery is. 15 miles south- cant of die Ragged Point field, and It] miles northwest of the Mel- stone field, and is about 14 miles noi'Lh.vest of a new field opened las: year by Texaco, in which iwa producing wells have been drilled. Nov.' being watched with great interest i.s another wildcat, being put down by Texaco, 7V1 miles southeast of tlie Farmers Union discovery. The Texaco well is coring within a few hurdred feet of the zone in which the Farmers Union well got its oil. En Unmapped Territory Neither the Farmers Union well the Texnco well now drilling, nor the two Texaco wells to the south- cast, are on any mapped domes or In the belief of geologists, the oil was trupijcd by a pinchout of deeply-buried porous something impossible to detect by surface neology. That being the case, the Farmers Union well is expected to set off a rush drillim; in the area, due to the possibility oil may be found almost anywhere, geologists say. The strike has served to further emphasize that in. central Montana, as in other parts of the state, the desultory drilling done so far has not even begun to indicate the scope of Montana's oil resources, according to authorities. They say an example of what lias taken place during the past couple of years is afforded by the Bin Wall field in Musselshel! county. Brought into production recently, it has less than a score of wells, yet these are now pro- ducing more than cat Creek Montana's pioneer field, which has approximately wells in pro- duction.
