Transcript INVENTION the mother of necessity At the turn of the twentieth century, America entered an era of productivity that was to astound the world. The invention of the rotary method of deep drilling for oil was to foster the automobile, the airplane, the Diesel engine, plastics, synthetic rubber, and many other developments. These, in turn, have long since become everyday necessities in the modern American way of life. Through the efforts of an obscure young inventor named Hughes, who chose a Texas cow pasture for his laboratory experiments in seeking oil with the rotary rock drill of his own invention, the developments dependent upon volume production of crude oil survived! With the introduction of the Hughes Rock Bit and its successful operation in drilling to unheard-of depths for oil deposits beneath the earth's surface, great volume production of petroleum in previously impenetrable geologic formations became possible. Volume production meant low-cost fuel for transportation . . . sparked the refining industry to fantastic accomplishment . . . gave birth to the synthetic rubber industry . . . and laid the cornerstone to an American economy that was to be the marvel of the age! Since the development of the Hughes Rock Bit in 1909, the name HUGHES has symbolized universal leadership in every oil field on the globe . . . has merited the well deserved title, "World Standard of the Industry."
