[DEEP OIL WELL TEST TO BE DRILLED AT DUNKARD MILL.]
TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1922 - FRONT PAGE.
Local oil well operators have everything lined up for a deep test on the southwest corner of section one, township 34, range 4, which is about one mile east of the Dunkard mill, and about five miles northeast of Arkansas City.
The local promoters are J. N. Day, Nat Foster, J. R. Brady, and C. G. Brady. "This is one of the best plays that have been made in Cowley County," said J. N. Day, who has been active in getting the leases and enlisting the interest of a number of the big oil operators in the mid-continent field. The companies interested in this test are The Phillips Petroleum company, Carter Oil company, Twin State Oil company, Salby Oil and Gas company, and Tidal Wave Oil and Gas company.
Day said: "It is the purpose to put down a deep test here, not less than three thousand feet, and possibly more. It is an entirely new field, and if the text proves successful, it will prove one of the most important steps yet taken in oil development in Cowley County."
