Landes Says
Reaching Oil
Will Be Hard
By HARRY STRAUSS
Oil's existence in southeastern
Michigan is a very valid possibili-
ty, says Prof. Kenneth K. Landes
of the geology department, but the
difficulty is in getting at the oil.
A former editor of the Bulletin
of the American Association of
Petroleum Geologists, Prof. Lan-
des remarked that a good block of
acreage is necessary to drop a well
and often large areas are sur-
rounded by too many small land
holdings, resulting in disappoint-
ment for the owners.
CONCERNING the University's
chances with oil land, Prof. Lan-
des said that while Michigan does
possess tracts of land, there is slim
chance that the University can
get a return from them, as the
state has mineral rights to the
land.
"It is impossible to be in the
position of the University of
Texas which has enormous land
ownings in western Texas, given
by the state as a source of in-
come as grazing land.
"The state has been smart in
retaining mineral rights to lands
that have reverted back to it be-
cause of non payment of taxes,"
Prof. Landes continued. In some
cases the land area has been enor-
mous, he said, giving as an ex-
ample lumber companys' lands
that returned to the state which
now has mineral rights over the
land's resale.
