Natural Gas Is
Found In Alaska
WASHINGTON, July 25. UP)
Discovery of natural gas in com

of Point Barrow, Alaska, has been
announced by the Navy.
It is flowing in sufficient quan
tities to meet the fuel require
ments of the naval installations
at Point Barrow, the announce
ment said. J: ' ,
The discovery was made fn the
37,000-aere naval petroleum re
serve No. 4 where the United
States has been "conducting -an
extensive quest for oil since 1944.
"This discovery, p 1 u s; the
'shows' of oil and gas tested in
wells drilled in other parts of
the reserve, justify the careful
exploration program being con-.
ducted by the navy in Alaska,"
said Com. William G Greenman,
director of naval petroleum re
serves. ; , ,-
Five deep wells already have
been drilled and three more are
under way. All but one have re
