of hundreds of tr'ouzand s of dol-

'day 'through the unexpected sfnk-
ing of 10 acres of lance in the Scour
lake oil-field, 25 miles west of h:ere,
which has created a deep lake
wnhere only Wednesday there
stretched an expanse of waving
marsh grass and small trees. Sides
of the pit still were srumbling to-
'day as the fall of earth continued.
Te0ricks and storage tanks were
being removed from the edge of
the great hole, estimated at from
50, to 150 feet, which filled with
'water Wednesday as the surface
'steadily. fell through hour (after
hour. -Thirteen wells were shut

'boiler and six settling tank were
'engulfed.
geologists Study Lake
~Geologists of all the larger "oil
co6mpanies' operating in this section
were here today to study the muiddy
lake, approximately quarter mile
'Vide and slightly longer, which
lapped the very border of the pro-
ducing field. Theories as to 'the
cause of the phenomenon were as
'difficult as they Were numerous,
'bUt the consensus is that-drainag~e
ocf the immense pool of oil beneath
the' surface left- a cavity which the;
sinking, crust is filling.
Adjacent Wells Affected
effect on adjacent oil 'wells ;was
almost immediate. One well, nmak-
ing 10l barrels a day before the 'new
lake was formed, now is making 251.)
barrels. Oan'the other side of the.
great depressionf a well making M~
barrels a day Tuesday is spouting
salt water today. This well was
brought in Saturday with an ini-
tial flow of 250 barrels a day.
lIn comparing notes on the phe-
niomenon geologists recalled┬░ that
'there have been a score or more of
similar occurrences in the gulf area
withini the ls 5years, In -all oth'er
cases,, however, the depression has

badgers, skunks, raccoons, coyotes,
and one porcupine and fox on ex-
hibition. The turtle pool is also a
feature of the new structure, and
will include as many varieties of
the Michigan species gas can be pro-
cured. Nearly all the 'animals and
-reptiles slated for occupancy in the
new hourse have arrived -at the
museum, although additions will be
made from time to time by Miss
hmpson and hler assistants.
The total population of the new~
animal abode will probably be sev-
enteen to begin 'with, although the
capacity of the pens is much great-
