Revenge will be sought by t
Michigan basketball team at 7:

In order to arouse greater intere

To fraternity and sorority
Many Michigan athletes are in
need of work. It may be that
you will need men to work either
in your dining room or kitchen.
If so call Hammon'd, phone 188,
so that athletes may be given
these jobs.

Sanction of a boxing bout between
D. D. Dodge, '24, and M. A. Mills,
'23E, to be staged between halves at
the M. A. C. basketball game, has been
given by the Board of Boxing Con-
trol consisting of Registrar Arthur G.
Hall, Dr. G. A. May, Coach Sullivan,
Roland Libonati, '21, and Charles
Hummer, '23.
The bout will extend over three two
minute rounds. Coach Sullivan will

Curtailment of the number of
events in which athletes of prep
schools compete in interscholastic
meets is advocated by a committee of
the Association of College Track
Coaches of America, of which Coach
S. J. Farrell and Archie Hahn are
active members.
For several years Michigan has
been strongly urging the adoption of
such a rule according to P. G. Bar-
telme, athletic director. The commit-
tee report follows:
That the members of this associa-
tion use their influence with their re-
spective institutions to prevent the
boys of the preparatory schools from
competing in too many events in the
various interscholastic meets to be
held in the future. The committee aft-
er careful deliberation in this matter
recommends the following sugges-
tions :
Recommended that no schoolboy be
permitted to run in more than one
event above and including the quar-
ter mile. Below the quarter mile, and
including the quarter mile, he will be
permitted to run in two events. The
two mile run is to be dropped from
all. interscholastic competition. Re-
lay races to be dropped from all in-
terscholastic track meets, where the
regular order of events are held. No
restrictions on the competition in
field events, except judgment should
be exercised by the school authori-
ties and coaches. Hurdle races are
classed as running events. A heat in
a quarter mile is classed as one race.
This association contains in its
membership the most prominent track
coaches of the country. Represented
are John F. Moakley, president of the
association and recent coach of the
Olympic team, Keane FitzpatrickI

Poor ice conditions last night broke
in upon the informal hockey squad's
schedule for the third consecutive
time. The game which was to have
been played at the Coliseum against
the Varsity News sextet of Detroit
was postponed early yesterday after-
noon when it became evident that
there would be no ice. No date has
been definitely arranged for this en-
Last night's cancellation will not
affect the game with the Detroit
Waterstons, scheduled for 4:30 o'clock
this afternoon at the Coliseum, unless;
the continued warm weather makes
the match impractical, according to
Manager Fletcher.
Coming from behind in the last half
to overcome a 9 to 6 score, the Michi-
gan Union basketball team defeated
the Upstaters 20 to 12, in the con-
cluding game of2the intramural tour-
ntment Thursday night. Hickey was
the bright star for the winners, reg-
istering three field goals and four out
of five foul throws in the last half.
With the conclusion of the inter-
fraternity and sectional series inter-
est is turning to the interclass tour-
ney, which will be started at the be-
ginning of the new semester. With
more than 100 men in good condition
as a result of the intramural play
the interclass series is expected to de-
velop some teamni faster than the
aevrage has been in the past.

largest Oil Wells
in the United States

Expected in Duval

County, Texas

Especially Careful Service for
Particular People

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Jan. 22-l
Duval county, Texas, which has'
been in the limelight more or less
for about a year is now scheduled
for a period of intensive activity,
according to geologists who have
just returned from the field.
The famous Becher No. 1, Em-
pire test on the Becher farm, be-
ing drilled by the Empire Gas and,
Fuel company north of the town;
of Benavides has never been aban-
doned, as it is generally believed,
and operations are again under
way on this important test, which
flowed a good grade of oil and pro-
duced considerable gas at a depth
of about 3300 feet, after which the
Empire company erected a 42,000-,
gallon steel tank.
The following are some of the
companies interested in the devel-
opment of Duval county:
Empire Gas and Fuel company,
Mar-Tex, Abercrombie, Tex-Lar Oil
company, Ark-Tex Oil . company,
National Oil company, the Danci-
ger Oil and Refining company of
Kansas City, 'Missouri, the Simms
Oil company of Houston, Texas and
the Gray Ridge Oil company
Several of the most experienced
geologists and petroleum engineers
of the California oil fields have
made a careful survey of the Du-
val county field, propounce it the
most promising territory in the
Gulf coast district and predict the
opening up of a new field as large,
or larger than any yet brought in
in Texas.
Rigs Moving In
Although the field has been look-
ed upon favorably by the large
companies for the past year, as'
evidenced by the fact that they
have practically all blocked up
considerable acreage, they have
been so busily engaged in other
proven fields that they were un-
able to turn their attention to this
particular one. With the slowing
up of activities in the North Texas
fields, however, rigs and men have
been released from those centers
and a number of the well estab-
lished companies are shifting them
to Duval county in an effort to
prove it up.
There has been much drilling
near Pedras Pintas near Benavides
and many wells are on the pump
and producing a high grade of oil.
Deep drilling is done around the
salt domes which produce very
large production.
Structures are Promising
Aside from the salt dome prom-
ise of production, the northern part
of the county is just as promising
from a structural point of view.
The drilling of the Mar-Tex No. 1
on the Ridder lease, disclosed a
well defined structure which gave
excellent indications of produc-
tion. The Yegua sands, which
have proven productive in other
Texas fields, are also found in this
field and in addition other shal-

lower sands were encountered
which gave good promise of being
productive. The Yegua sand is
picked up at about '1700 feet as
was the case in the Mar-Tex No. 1.
Geologists claim that on account
of the live oil found in the Empire
test, has est.lished beyond a
doubt, that a pool exists in that vi-
cinity and that every geologist
who has made a survey of Duval
county is of the opinion that such
a pool will be tapped.
Conditions in Duval County are
similar to conditions prevalent
around the largest wells in the
Gulf Coast region around the salt
domes and all geologists who have
gone into the matter, agree that
,similar wells will be brought in
around the salt domes of Duval
county, which is just now getting
so many test wells.
"It is my firm belief-and this
belief is shared by a large num-
ber of other experienced and far-
seeing oil men-that the greatest
high-grade oil field ever discovered
in the world will soon be opened
in South Texas. I believe this new
field will be located about 110
miles due South of San Antonio,
and will extend through Duval
County, Webb County, Jim Hogg,
Brooks and Hidalgo Counties. By
referring to a map of Texas, you
will find these counties to be lo-
cated in the very southern-most
portion of the State; in what is
generally known as the Lower Rio
Grande Valley, or the Brownsville

Go North from the Tampico field,
and carefully trace the same anti-
clinal structure and geological for-
mation. You will find these reach-
ing their most pronounced and
favorable outcroppings about 250
miles North of Tampico, across the
Rio Grande River, in the southern
counties of Texas, just mentioned.
Here is where I look for the
GREATEST high-grade oil wells in
the world to be found. I believe
that enormous gushers will be
struck in this field, nearly as large
as the biggest wells of Tampico.
I believe the great wells of Burk-
burnett, Ranger and Stephens
County, Texas-and of Homer and
Bull Bayou, Louisiana-will appear
small in comparison with the
mighty gushers that will be struck.
here. Furthermore, this will be
high-grade oil of the much desired
