Six Ask for Permits to Drill on San Nicholas Off California Coast San Nicholas Island, a barren and desolate bit of land sixty miles south- west of Catalina Island, may figure prominently in the romance of modern business if the calculations of six local men are correct, says the Los Angeles Times. It is the purpose of these men to prospect on the island for oil, and in furtherence of that plan they have filed applications with the local land office for oil and gas permits. That San Nicholas Island is a likely place to prospect for oil is shown by investigations and reports made by Chas. F. Carol, a geologist of Venice, who is one of the six men filing ap- plication for pemnission to prospect on the island, which now is occupied sole- ly by the government for lighthouse purposes. Associated with Mr. Carrol in the venture are C. C. C. Tatum, Os- car B. Luce, Jacob G. Kemper, Walter M. Lenz and G. A. B. Champney. The island is about sixteen square miles in extent The six permits would cover practically the entire island. Messrs. Carrol, Lute and Kemper have applied for permits covering two square nfiles each. The other applications designate one square mile each. Application was made for the per- mits following a recent visit to the is- land by the applicants. As the land office does not have jurisdiction over insular possessions, the applications have been forwarded to the treasury department, which controls land used for lighthouse purposes. Ernest Baldwin of the Avalon Fire Department, who has been at school in Long Beach for the past seven weeks in training with the Long Beach Fire Department, returned home Mon- day.
