Mr. EDWARDS:

Do I understand that
this is the first time the federal government have resorted to the use of the seismograph in testing the oil potentialities of the various areas? I believe that for years past they have examined potential structures from a purely geological point of view, but now I understand that as a result of the present need the activities of this particular branch are being enlarged, and it is actually testing by the use of the most recent and best recognized system of seismographic test. Is that correct?
