that his group will be scripulous in its regard for the constitutional rights of our free press He denies gunning for anybody or any interest in the editorial content of any particu lar newspaper In the last elec tion Brooklynite Celler was sup ported only by the New York Post He even suggests possible immunization from antitrust laws for newspapers We are interested in keeping news papers alive he says Originally Celler had cited as reasons for his groups investi gation next week the largest newspaper consolidations in our history in Los the closing of newspapers in Jack son Miss and Eugene

is vitally im portant to Iowa because it is the first bonafide find in the state holding promise of being produc able Hershey said As a result the possibility of economically important oil de posits in Iowa can be viewed much more optimistically than ever be fore no matter what the out come in the Keota area He said the Keota area is rather isolated in relationship to other oil fields the closest producing Fields are in Illinois near Tarkio Mo and Falls City Neb Burlingame said that under the companys lease with Flynn 25 per cent of any oil produced would go to the landowner He said this was more liberal than what he called the normal 88 oil lease which gives the landowner one eighth of the oil produced said the find is bound to bring an immediate influx or tidal wave of oil people to Iowa because it makes more promising the search for oil in the state Burlingame said Natural Gas Pipeline plans to do further ex ploratory drilling primarily to lo cate underground rock formations which can be used for natural gas storage but looking for oil while looking for storage There have been numerous test holes drilled in Iowa looking for oil but all were unsuccessful Her shey said one operator contended a few years ago that he had dis covered oii in commercial quan tities near Cresco but the Iowa Geological Survey had never been able to confirm this He said that dead oil was found in one test hole in west ern Iowa but it was a thick gummy substance of no commer ia value There have been introduced in he Iowa Senate a bill offering a SiOOOOO reward to the first com pany that locates an oil well which will produce as much as 50 bar a day Hershey and the pipeline com pany executives said that the cur rent find probably is not suffici nt to qualify for the raward but that it
