Oil Administration Agrees to One Well to Each 10 Acres mCOXJESfPLnNNEO Mnnahan and Sledge Reported Building Derrick For "Bottom Test" The national petroleum admin- istration has approved south Pon- totoc county, according to W. A. "Gus" Delaney, who recently re- turned from Washington, D. C.. where he took up the mailer ot outlet for oil produced In tho field. According to the plan of de- velopment there can be drilled one well to each 10 acres In tho area. However, Ihe number of wells that can be drilled in the next 12 months has yet to be determined. Tho plan was adopted at n meet- ing In Ada at which most major operators Interested In the field were present. Mr. Delaney was selected chair- man of the group, tho executive committee Including M. O. Mat- thews, W. II. Osborn, B. V. Cal- lulmn of Ardmoro, E. H. Moore of Tulsa, a representative of the Continental Oil company and a representative of the Magnolia Po- iroleum company.

The Harden 1A is producing oil but there Is no way at present ot getting an accurate gauge of Its production, as with present facili- ties removal of oil from avail- able tankage Is slow. However, the operators are planning to get standardization equipment installed within a week or ten days and more accurate In- formation on what the well can do will be available soon.

The bill provided an Increase of the bor- rowing limit of the corporation by The corporation expects more than of repayments which It can re-lend without Issu- ing debentures. The president said He expects the corporation to make most of tho payments out of these repayments. The life of the corporation as a lending agency would have ended today If the president had not signed the bill. Four Members of Gang Cap- tured; Two More Still nt Large in Oklahoma LANSING.

His lliree Mc.Mahan, Fred Cody and Ben- jamin recaptured and returned here. They were placed In No, 2 cellhouse from which they escaped after over- powering a guard and construct- ing a ladder with which to scale the wall. This ccllhonso Is the "solitary" of the state prison. Their return and the death of their leader accounted for five of tho seven fugitives.

He notified officers and within a short time their flight was halted. Undersherlffs H. R. Llnlngor and Ed Schlotmnn were tho.first to approach the men. When chal- lenged, Brady sought to fire at the officers with ta riot gun. but the cartridge failed to explode. He started to run, curalng at his Inability to clear his weapon of a damaged cartridge.

There are about 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 In for cotton farming, so that tho goal of the county workers Is contracts.
