A 15-foot correction in measure- ment by steel line placed bottom of the hole at feet late Tuesday, and the test drilled ahead last night in dark gray shale at feet. It is 5n section svir- vey. Forest geologists had correlated the test high on a regional struc- ture, approximately 80 feet higher on the upper beds than the Adams- Moody cieep test a mile and a half to the northeast in Haskell county and about 60 feet higher struc- turally than the recently drilled Superior No. 1 Hendrick three miles to the northeast. Opening of Palo Pinto produc- tion by the test will either mark the discovery of a new field or boost prospects for the extension of Ivy pool which also yields Palo Pinto lime production.

The chemical analyses are made by Dr. Brewer. A new form of chemistry U used. known as the Isotopes. Isotopes are atoms of the same chemical clement having different weights. Tile differences arc nearly Infin- itesimal and were only discovered a few" years ngo. Potassium, although a deadly poison when free in the human boy, exists there in large amounts "bound up" Inside the microscopic cells that form living tissues. The new isotope chemistry has found that there are (hrec ditfcrenl weights cf potassium: 39. and 41. Tho figures mean itoiuic units ot weight. Numbers >9 and 41 furnish the new cancer clue. In Iv.alth flesh these two "Isotopes" of potassium exist in the ratio of about 14 to one. There are 15 atoms of the light-weight stuff to every one of the heavier kind. But this U not true in cancer where there is less of the heavy- weight potassium. This is true of all cancers studied, both human and animal. Of more spectacular Interest Is the further discovery that all around the site of n cancer is an area where the heavy potassium is lower than nor- mal.
