F. Wathen tract, about 7 o'clock Friday evening The well Parted Casing Halts Progress in Dodd Test In the course of drilling below the cap rock in the Dodd test here Tuesday, the casing was broken in the well about 100 feet from the surface, which halted known astheJoeWorsham well, progress temporarily. Operations is situateu just across the line in [were suspended until the neces- Anderson county and about 12 ary fishing tools could be obtain- miles south of Malakoff. T h e well started flowing under its own pressure about 2 o'clock, and came in within the space of five hours The well is said to be exceptionally good with the gravity registered at 26-degrees and a gas pressure slightly under that of the Ware No. 3~ which is said to be the largest producer in the Cayuga field. As the result of this new pro. ducer, which extends the Cayuga field northward about 2 miles, considerable activity is expected to take place in the southern por- tion of this county. Already ten- tative locations are being made for a number of off-set wells on adjoining properties, more than one of which will be in Hender- son county. It has been learned that a location has been made on another Wathen tract, which lies in this county and that the same rig and equipment, as o n the first, will be used in this second well. Efforts will be made, it is learned, to move the derrick, standing, to the new location. Since the coming in of the Worsham well, the depressson has been removed far to the back- ground for many families in that / alakoff's Opportunity The recent completion of the Worsham well on the Henderson county line and the trend of de- velopment North towards Mala- koff behoves our citizens to take same cooperative action to the end that Malakoff will benefit from the oil activity in this area. With that end in view, there are many things that require the thoughful attention of this corn- munity. Amongst others are the neces- sity of sewerage and sanitation problems, The cleaning up of our streets and alleys. The road to Cross Roads should be oiled. Accomodations for oil men and their families. We should realize right now that what Malakoff and their citizens can offer to the oil men on these vital matters would be compensated for a hundred times over from a business and finan- cial standpoint. ,As a matter of civic pride as well as health, the sewerage and sanitation problem is one that will have to be met sooner or later and the ripe time is now. Malakoff is potentially situated in the heart of an oil field. Many tests will be started in the near future and the citizens of our community should have some im- mediate organization to make plans so that they can be put into action, and no t procrastinate, thus letting the opportunity pass by, to be seized by other cities to the detriment of our town.
