Nebraska Finds Added
Reserves of Oil and Gas
Omaha, Neb., — Proved reserves
of liquid petroleum and natural gas
in Nebraska went up another notch
in 1955, despite record-breaking
production and consumption, ac
cording to R. E. Osborn, Sinclair,
Omaha, who is Nebraska chairman
for the Oil Industry Information
Committee. The OIIC is the pub
lic relations branch of the Ameri
can Petroleum Institute, the trade
association for the oil industry.
Proved reserves are those under
ground supplies of liquid petroleum
and natural gas whose locations
have been established and esti
mated, and which are known to be
available for production. Not taken '
into consideration are the millions
of acres of U. S. lands known to be ;
favorable to the accumulation of
oil and gas but whose potential has j
not yet been developed or estab-|
Mr. Osborn said that proved re
serves of liquid petroleum rose to
64.133.000 barrels in 1955—a one
year increase of 23,834,000 barrels.
He emphasized that, although the
net results of the annual report
are on the favorable side, they
serve to point up further the re
peated statements of oil men that
the search for oil is becoming more
difficult and more expensive with
each passing year.
Osborn noted that nationally, the
oil industry drilled more than
56.000 wells in 1955, a record num
ber in itself—yet the net increases
in proved reserves are only moder
ate, and a far cry from the im
mediate post-war years when they
exceeded a billion or more barrels
on at least six occasions.
Production of both liquid petro
leum and natural gas in Nebraska
hit all-time peaks in 1955, the two
Production of liquid petroleum
was estimated at 12,195,000 barrels.
Liquid petroleum, according to
th£ API, consists of crude oil and
natural gas liquids. Crude oil
proved reserves went up to 57,697,
000 barrels in 1955, an increase of
19.666.000 barrels, while natural
gas liquids proved reserves rose to
6.436.000 barrels, an increase of
Production of crude oil amounted
to 11,846,000 barrels last year, an
all-time peak. Production of natur
al gas liquids was estimated at
349.000 barrels, also an all-time

Integration Requires Time, Patience
Union City, N. J. — “Deliberate speed seems the only answer” to
racial integration in the South, The Sign, national Catholic magazine
published here, asserts in a leading editorial in its April issue.
“Everybody knows the decisive factor will be the attitude of the |
white Southerner’s heart”, the editorial states. “Many whites in the
South have grown into their racial opinions innocently, having absorb
ed them uncritically from the time they were children. Upon these
notions they have built the whole fabric of their society and their self
“There is, of course, another — and very different — type of white
citizen in the South. . . he is fixed in his determination that Negroes
will never acquire equal status with him ... It behooves everyone
to be patient with this man, too. Not because he deserves patience,
but because the only way he can be brought around is through being
silently shamed by the influence and example of his more democratic
neighbor. That influence must be given a chance to go to work.”
“The wiser Negro leaders”, The Sign declares, “understand this.
They realize how bitter a thing it is to have to swallow one’s pride and
how much of a struggle it will be for the Southern white to swallow
his large dose of it. . . .They know it is as unrealistic for themselves
to want integration to go impossibly fast as it is for reluctant whites
to want it to go impossibly slow.
“The conflict in the South is a conflict sparked on the one side by
social pride and on the other by social hunger. The white man has
more rights than he is entitled to. It will take a lot of humility on his
part to give them up. The Negro has less rights than he is entitled to.
It will take a lot of patience on his part to wait for them to come to
“There is no question that the Negro’s cause is more just,” the
magazine concludes. There is no question, either, that the white man’s
adjustment is going to be more difficult. Humiliation is more painful

The panel expressed the opin
ion that the lack of the rieht kind

expressed the opinion that the;e
are so few of these facilities be
cause of the laxa daizical attitude j

Major James E. Osborn, Com
manding Officer of the U. S. Army
Recruiting Main Station, 30th and
Fort Streets, Omaha, Nebraska,
announced today that another
group of women from the Iowa and
Nebraska area will leave for Fort
McCllellan, Alabama, on the 14th
of May which is the fourteenth
birthday of the Women’s Army
All women between the ages of
18-34 are eligible to become mem
bers of the Women’s Army Corps
if they can meet the stringent men
tal, moral and physical qualifica
tions that are required.
The outstanding success of 1955’s
“Operation Glamour” when 13 wo
men from this area were sworn in
to the Women’s Army Corps,
prompted the establishment of a
program to send at least one large
group each year into the WAC.
There are several advantages for a
young woman to join this group,
such as, she will be able to leave
her home with a group of young
women from her own community,
she will be able to take her entire
period of basic training with her
friends at the home of the Women’s
Army Corps in the sunny south,
and she may even continue her
service in the company of the wo
men she left her home with. Sev
eral of last year’s group went to
the same technical schools and
have since been assigned to the
same post and Women’s Amy
In addition to this outstanding
opportunity of being able to enlist
with a group, any woman who is a
high school graduate and who can
pass the entrance requirements
may choose a technical school be
fore she enlists and be guaranteed
attendance at this school after she
enlists. These schools are in the
administrative career fields.
Complete details concerning this
outstanding opportunity can be ob
Historically the coming of Spring
is attended with a very definite in
crease in the number of fire a
larms which are associated with
the practice of unconfined burning
in the open.
In an attempt to minimize all
such fires we are asking the assist
ance of all of the press, raido and
television agencies to carry the fol
lowing message to the people of
1. It is unlawful to conduct
open burning except by special per
mission by the Fire Department.
2. Burning which is confined
to approved incinerators is per
missable between the hours of
7 A.M. and 7 P.M. provided that
the burning does not create either
a smoke or odor nuisance.
3. It is unlawful to maintain
on any premise accumulations
of dry weeds, refuse or debris in
such manner as will enchance the
danger of fire on said premises.
The law does provide a penalty
for non-compliance. Specifically
it stipulates that a person may be
fined not less than $5.00 nor more
than $100.00 or shall be imprison
ed for not more than 9(5 days for
each and every violation.
In order to eliminate fire haz
ards and to afford compliance
with the Ordinance it is essential
that dry weeds and ledves and
other accumulations of combus
tible waste be removed from all
premises. In many cases this
can be accomplished by taking
advantage of the City Garbage
and Waste Pick-up Service which
will accept these combustible
if they are placed in containers
which are equivalent to the con
ventional garbage can. By taking
advantage of this service the cit
izen can benefit himself not only
by using a service for which he
is paying but also by eliminating
the hazard of improper burning,
the hazard of the accumulation
and the nuisance and air polution
which is created by unrestricted
Also we would like to caution
people who are using approved
portable incinerators. It must
be remembered that these de
vices should not be left unattend
ed if in use, should be at least
15 feet from any structure or from
dry grass, etc., and should not be
over-taxed. It is much safer, and
the smoke and nuisance factor
is much less if a moderate
amount of material is burned at
We will appreciate your coop
eration in carrying this message
to the people at intervals over
the next several weeks.
Please accept our appreciation
for the many times in the past
that you have rendered similar
service to the public.
