America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. A geology expert of one of the large oil companies U.S. displays two varieties of sand from an oil drilling district. The hand on the left holds dry, oil-less sand, while the one on the right holds sand rich and dark with oil. The latter oil-soaked sand, called "Simpson sand," is the goal of all seekers of oil and finding the sand in a test-boring indicates that is a well is sunk at that place the chances of "striking" oil are good. No longer do oilwell drillers in the U.S. rely on "hit or miss" methods of drilling for oil. Geologists make careful surveys of the surface of the ground to detect those geological characteristics which indicate the presence of oil deposits beneath. The industry's high efficiency has resulted in the production of enormous quantities of oil, a great part of which today propels and lubricates the planes, navies, and mechanized equipment of the United Nations' armed forces

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. An oil well, marked by a tall, steel derrick, is producing oil for the United Nations in the garden of a private home in Oklahoma City, capital of the U.S. southwest state of Oklahoma. Oil industrialists in the U.S. have searched for oil over nearly every foot of the ground in America. They are aided in their search by geology experts trained in reading the surface of the ground as well as test borings to detect the presence of oil, often at great underground depths. In the case of Oklahoma City the town was built before it was discovered that rich petroleum deposits lay under the town site. Oil wells were even drilled on the State House grounds near the state's Capitol building, and the flow from these wells enriched the coffers of the state government. What geologists call the "diligence" of U.S. seekers after oil has made the U.S. a great oil producing nation, though it contains but 15 percent of the proven oil deposits of the world

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. A geologist, employed by one of the important U.S. oil companies, surveys, with the help of his "rod man" standing on the ridge in the background, a section of land to detect the presence of a possible oil deposit under the ground. "Hit or miss" methods of drilling for oil were discarded long ago in the United States. Today careful preliminary surveys and test borings precede the sinking of most oil wells. Geology experts of the important oil companies are able as a rule to read the surface of the ground accurately for the detection of oil deposits. The industry's efficient methods of finding oil have resulted in the enormous amounts of oil produced. According to a U.S. oil company official, the predictable U.S. oil total for the year 1944 will be 1,601,250,000 barrels, a great part of which will supply the armed forces of the United Nations
