Logs of Wells and Test Holes

Given on the following pages are logs of 15 test holes drilled by the State Geological Survey of Kansas and logs of 22 wells and test holes obtained from drillers and other sources. Additional logs of test holes are on file at the State and U.S. Geological Survey offices, Lawrence, Kans., and may be consulted there.
