Tile national petroleum administration has approved south Pontotoc county, according to W. A. “Gus" Delaney, who recently returned from Washington, D. C., where he took up the matter of outlet for oil produced in the field. According to the plan of development there can be drilled one well to each IO acres in Ute area. Howrever, the number of wells that can be drilled in the next 12 months has yet to be determined. The plan wras adopted at a meeting in Ada at which most major operators interested in the field were present. Mr. Delaney was selected chairman of the group, the executive committee including M. O. Matthews, W. B. Osborn, B. V. Callahan of Ardmore, E. H. Moore of Tulsa, a representative of the Continental Oil company and a representative of the Magnolia Petroleum company. Late reports from the field tell of several developments of general interest. In section 18-2n-7e, G. A. Manahan and J. B. Sledge are building a derrick for a Wilcox test.

His three companions—Tommy McMahan, Fred Cody and Ben and returned here. They were placed in No. 2 cellhouse from which they escaped after overpowering a guard and constructing a ladder with winch to scale the wall. This cellhouse is the “solitary” of the state prison.

The measure is $23,922,000 There are about 3,000 farmers in Pontotoc county, but a number of these do not qualify for one reason or another, to take part in the program, and some do not go still are" at large.

William M. Cruickshank today branded as fabrication a rumor that 75 boys had been dismissed from the CCC camp at Battist. McCurtain county, following a hunger strike . Lieut. S. M. Meyers, second in command of the camp, reported to General Cruickshank that the rumor was started by seven boys who had been discharged from the corps because of refusal to work. The officer’s report said the seven youths had refused to wrork unless they had eggs for breakfast. There were no eggs, he said, because a shipment had been delayed. The report said the eggless breakfast consisted not of dry toast alone, as one of the boys was quoted as saying at Muskogee yesterday, but of bacon, prunes, cereal, bread, butter and coffee. ;
