JUDGE GETS JUG
The lengthy questioning takes its toll in glasses
of water consumed, and it appears that Stuckeys well
may run dry, until Peace Justice Byrd takes tim
from presiding over the court to run in an extra supply
of water---fresh water.
UNDER further questioning, Stuckey says he told a rail-
road commission representative, and the Texas Rangers
to get written permission to visit the leases in quest.-
ion. He says he that -state investigatorE
had found an automatic timing device "under a bush."
21 The device was used, he said, to cure a paraffin
problem , and was set up like a time clock to
the pumps in the wells, on and off. The device
also held back the pressure on the oil line. Stuckey
denies any wrongdoing, and says he never put metal shav.
ings or gravel, or any other foreign material down the
wells, * The wells in question are in Gregg and Rusk
counties in east Texas.
Here’s what’s next.
