By CHUCK WALK GlobeGarette Staff Writer may be oil in them there hLUs Thats the idea a number of Hancock County farmers have after talking to Dan Dalton Dalton is a structural geologist from Wichita Kan who is gath ering oil and gas leases for al most 10000 acres of Hancock County land Representing four oil compa nies Dalton thinks there is oil under this section of Iowa farm land Whether or not it can be come a profitable operation is another story Even if oil is never found or for that matter even if a well is never drilled the mere buying of leases has caused a minor sen sation in the county SYLVESTER MALEK who brother Ed have leased 320 acres to Dalton said Weve had a lot of fun with the whole deal even if nothing ever comes of it Malek told of the neighbor farm boy who was stuck in the field with the tractor Everybody who drove by told himhe must have hit a pool of the oil Malek continued Dalton is quick to point out that this operation is no flyby night venture The com panjes involved have put up S25 000 each and have been testing the area for three years We think we have found a geological high similar to the type they struck oil at in Nebras ka Dalton said A geological high is a gently sloping area of land under which a large pool of oil is sometimes found X ALMOST 2000 ACRES of land in Garfield Township have al ready been leased from 15 farm ers The leases are for 10 years with a clause that if they are picked up within three years the land owners will receive 25 cents an acre If oil or gas is discov ered the owners will get every eighth barrel Delton said that at first most of the farmers were a little leary of signing any lease but that after much explanation they are beginning to come around He says that if enough leases can be obtained soon the companies would like to start on two or three test wells sometime in August or September Of course people should un derstand that if our final tests arent favorable a well will never be drilled Daiton pointed out The final tests will consist of a group of geologists taking soil samples and using instru ments todetermine if the oil pool is there and just how big it is NOT ALL THE farmers in the area think it is siich a good deal Mrs H C Nannenga whose husband rents and operates a farm in the proposed drilling area said It seems like an other way to get the farmers off the land What will they do when we ail move to town looking for work Leonard Rayhons who has al ready leased 200 acres feels dif ferently It would be a great thing for this part of the country Just think what it would do for the unemployment problem JOHN RAYHON Leonards father said It would be just like Texas if oil was discovered Everybody driving around in big cars The man who is promoting the idea of oil in Iowa is no stranger to the business Dalton has looked for oil in Canada South Ameri ca Oklahoma Texas and Wash ington A slightly built man of 69 he has 50 years of experience in the oil business 3 FIREMEN KILLED CHICAGO UP Three fire men were killed and six others in jured Thursday when an explo sion shattered a burning automo bile agency and buried them un debris MRS F J CLARK No Bidders on Korean Bonus Bond DES MOINES 26 million dollar Korean War bonus bond issue failed to sell Thursday and the states Korean War vet erans consequently are in for an additional wait before they get their bonuses There were no bidders on the big bond issue The law prevents a negotiated sale Another at tempt to sell the bonds will be made later This must be pre ceded by at least 20 consecutive days of advertisement of the is sue THE IOWA KOREAN Bonus law sets a 2A per cent annual interest ceiling on the bond issue and makes the bonds subject to call within six months after date of sale Experts said both of these features as well as cur rent conditions of the money market prevented the bond from receiving any offers Gov Herschel Loveless said the state will set a new letting date when conditions are favorable perhaps in May Loveless said a huge New York State bond issue plus a four billion dollar U S Treasury offering scheduled for next week probably were the chief factors hurting the Iowa is sues chances at this time STATE TREASURER M L Abrahamson who Avas in charge of the bond sale said the Iowa law does not permit the Korean Bonus bonds to be sold in seg ments All 25 million dollar worth must be sold in a single lot The World War II bonus law pro vided for sale of the bonds in four groups and they were sold al intervals Eepresentatives of two bidding groups qualified in advance of the 11 am scheduled bond sale bul neither entered any bids The letting was set up to receive sealed bids until 11 am with an auction to follow There were no bids either written or oral OUTNUMBERED GRANBY Conn UP The Stale Highway Department didnt have to put up with many argu ments when it explained a new road route The department sent four men to the public meeting which
