Old Newspaper Clippings

From: McLeansboro Times, February 9, 1922


          That the U. S. will be virtually out of oil and will have to depend upon foreign shipments and producers within a period of 20 years is the statement of members of the American geological survey and experts representing the American Association of Petroleum Geologists.  This report, which is official, was made at Washington and created a surprise.  The members state there may be individual and independent wells that will not pumped dry for years, and others may not be drilled until 1950, however the assumption that the production is permanent and will supply the U. S. for many years is misleading.

Do you have an old clipping of interest?  I will gladly place it here!
