It. has watched men dig for secret treasure in its sides, on the good ranch land at its feet, in the canyons stretching out for several miles. Lately it has seen some of these treasures discovered. None knows who named Dou- ble Mountain. Tradition has it the fellow who did came from die north, and that is likely. From the north the mountain seems "double." Viewed from the south, a dent in the west peak gives it a triple look. The east peak is on the ranch owned by Sam Baugh, rancher and football great, and the west peak is part of the Smith ranch. Exploring Double Mountain has for generations been a part ot the growing up process for youngsters of this area. It's not difficult to ascend if you nave plenty of wind. It's not descend if you ate sure-footed. Digging for the secrets in and about Double Mountain has been a longtime occupation for many. jists have dug for secrets of the ages and have had some success. Less suc- cessful, as far as we know, have been the gold seekers who have dug through the years for the riches rumors say are buried in and near the moun- tain. But now a new, a different treasure hunt is under way. Riches, in the form of oil, are being found. Out in the Fisher County can- yons which ramble off to the southwest of Double Mountain, canyons which seemed hardly worth nothering with, oil has been found in the Noodle Creek formation. Other oil fjnds have been reg- istered early in the land around the famous hills, but this new one is the most significant in this part of the country in some time, says Railroad Commis- sion District Supervisor Fred Osborne of Abilene. As of the first of this week, the official count was 55 pro- ducing wells finished in the new field since the discovery Feb. 4, 1961. These wells, from 3.7M to feet deep, have potentialed as high as 325 bar- rels, the RRC engineers say. New has failed to make the 84 prorated barrels. The new oil field is appropri- ately named "Rough Draw." (It's so rough in spots that one oil company spent on a road, to a drilling site.) far as it is now defined, "Rough Draw field lies in "County, reaching north- tne Kent Stonewall- corner, within eight so of the twin hill. t's close enough lot the mountain to look down and -watch this new search for its-secrets, toe successful hunt the old gold-hunt- Imaglned. r AND WHAT SUPERVISES tart feat article a By THOMAS J.

(AP) An interplanetary spaceship named Mariner 1 is scheduled for launching Sat- urday on a journey to the vicinity of the planet Venus. If successful, the intricate Spacecraft will 000 miles of Venus in early No. vember and sensitive instru- ments will probe secrets of the cloud-veiled planet. Before Mariner 1 covers the million miles to Venus, Mariner 2 scheduled for launching within six weeks, is to be following the same course through silent space. Purpose of the double launching is to gather as much data a? possible in the six-week period when Venus is in a fa- vorable position. It will be an- other 19 months before Earth and Venus again will be in rel- ative positions, in their or- bits about the sun, for another shot. US. scientists anticipate Russia will launch a vehicle toward Venus in the present period. The Russians launched flw only previous Venus probe, but its radio equipment fail- ed long before it reached the vicinity of Venus. They esti- mated it passed within miles of toe bright planet and went into orbit around the sun as Mariners 1 and 2 are expected to do. An Atlas-Agena B rocket will start the 446-pound Mari- ner 1 on its space voyage. Us- ing the same technique which enabled Ranger 4 to hit the moon earlier this year, the Agenda B will settle into a so- called "parking orbit" 115 miles above Earth at a speed of miles an hour. When the Agena B is in proper posi- tion for a Venus trajectory, its engine will accelerate to Earth escape speed of miles an hour and kick the space- craft free. A complex system of Earth and sun sensors, gyroscopes and gas jets win keep Man- ner on course and in the prop- er attitude so its instruments can radio data back to earth and its solar pwels gather the sun's rays for' battery power. The main tracking station at the National Aeronautics, and Space Administration's jet propulsion laboratory facility at GokWone, Calif., will, issue necessary radio commands to alter trajectory when neces- sary. About eight days after launching, when Mariner 1 is more than one million miles from Earth, Goldstone will send a signal to fire an en- gine in the spacecraft Ibis midcourse engince can pro- duce 90 pounds of thrust for up to 43 seconds and will pro- vide the big boost needed to jockey the vehicle onto the Venus fly-by path.
