Authorities Enact No-Fire Rule
as Well Blows Wild at
East of City.
* President of Oil Company Takes
Charge of Attempts to
Control Gas Flow.
(Rv Associated Press)
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Oct. 31.
-Increasing its flow of oil to an
estimated 110,000 barrels daily, a
wild gusher threatened Oklahoma
City today. Hundreds of families in
the southeast part of the city went
breakfastless, as fire authorities en-
forced strict no-fire rules. '
The well, No. 1 C. E. Stout of the
Morgan Petroleum Co., on the Ca-
nadian River bank, just east of the
city limits, also was making an es-
timated 100,000,000 cubic feet of gas
daily. It has blown Wild for 12
Oil Men Cite Danger.
Oil men said that because of its
location the gusher was far more
dangerous to the city than the
Mary Sudik, which attracted na-
tional attention last spring by
blowing wild for 11 days.
Every fireman in the city was on
duty, roads in the north end of the
city gusher field were blocked and
train traffic in the vicinity of the
well was restricted.
Taking personal charge of the
derrick crew at daylight, Fred Mor-
gan, president of the company, di-
rected efforts to control the gusher.
Efforts were being made to remove
master valves, ripped open Thurs-
day night and cut away by sand,
preparatory to installing a "Christ-
mas tree" that would control the.
Noise heard in City.
The well's -roar could be heard
nearly everywhere in the city. At
times it was almost deafening
downtown and on the east side, and
the knocks of warning firemen a-
wakening residents in that section
of the city added to the restlessness
in virtually every home in the af-
fected area.
Negroes living in river bottom
flats fled their homes as the crude'
from the gusher, unstemmed byl
earthen dykes, poured into the riv-
The wind shifted southwest early
today, adding to the hazard.
Five city schools were closed to-
day, releasing 2,150 pupils until
Monday. Great pbckets of gas lurk-
ing close to the ground in the
southeast part of the city led to1
the closing, J. R. Barton, city su-
perintendent of instruction, said.
Streets and roads for a mile,
around the well were closed.

Plans to unite the engineering
profession, educational institutions
and the industries in improving en-
gineering education have been an-
nounced by H. Hobart Porter, chair
man of the engineering foundation.
Prof. Alfred H. White, of the
chemical engineering department,
is working with Dr. Harvey N. Da-

Technology, on the education re-
search committee whose obect i
to form a program which will meet
the demand of industry and puic
service for professional education of
high quality.
Dr. Davis represents the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers,
whigch has begun a survey of its
members to determine their duties,
responsibilities and compensation.
He favors the use of aptitude tests
more than the questionnares used
at present in the colleges.
"Breadth of vision," Dr. Davis as-
serts, "should be balanced against
depth of thiking in deciding upon
the courses of training best for vari-
ous engineering students. Specializ-
ation belongs after graduation."

have been chosen as delegates from
the University of Michigan. Kearns

particularly Michigan State, and
compare ideas on the conducting of
their respective organizations.nThe
value of this exchange of thought
should be one of the chief results

The reluctance of missionaries to

The American consulate general
at Hankow alone has protested to
Chinese officials during the past
18 months more than 50 times
against the occupation and moles-
