Even the dictionary says it's "a board or association to promote the commercial in- terests of a locality." For a business looking out for its own welfare, it's a good sound theory. Sort of "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" philosophy. Or maybe' it's more of a "united we stand, divided we fall" principle. In practice, it simply means that what's good for Naples is good for the individual busi- nesses here and what helps one business will help all lo- cal businesses. That's the foundation of the chamber of commerce. That's what, i...

THE NAPLES MONITOR THURSDAY, AUG. 22. 1957 m-- mm VIEWPOINTS Papa Will Pey A new state law effective Thursday, Aug 22, may encourage parents to take a more active interest in what their children are doing. The law, passed by the last state legislature, makes parents liable for property destruction by their minor children. The average good parent with the interest of his children at heart would not have needed any legal requirement to make him exercise the proper authority over his offspring. But, unforunately, too many parents take the attitude that whatever their own children do is all right. That group sees no wrong and, corrects no wrong. And it is from that group of undisciplined youngsters that come a large number of problem' children and problem adults. The new law will hit the parents right where it hurts — in the pocketbook. A side effect of the law should be more supervision and more teaching of respect for the rights of others. If the law will do that much, it will be well...

Scrub brush and willows in e lake bed give the appear- ance more of swampland tinn a first rate fishing haven. The lodge itself is becoming one of the most attractive and complete fishing camps in the southwest but its hillside set- ting now is a hundred yards or more from the water. The water itself is patched with brush, indicating the shallowness. Boaters now can pick their way along the old river channel and through some of the lowlands of the bottoms but the lake bed is far from the level that would be desirable to boaters and tishermen.

Dean The 1957 Texas cotton crop is estimated at 3,775,000 bales of 500 pounds gross weight by the Crop Reporting Board. This is 4 per cent above last gear's production, and it is expected to yield higher than any year since 1866. Yield per acre prospects continue to re- flect the effects of growing cotton on the best land, use of more and higher analysis fer- tilizers and other improved cultural practices. CORNETT Approximately 1,100 acres of cotton were planted in Morris county this year. This is the lowest acreage in the history of Morris county. The main reason for the low acre- age is the Soil Bank. There were 902 acres of cotton plac- ed in this program and Mor- ris county farmers have al- ready received their* checks which totaled $28,119. Cotton planted this year is looking good and yields are expected to be above a...

v-~ 1 NAPLES MONITOR THURSDA'', AUG. 29, 1957 VIEWPOINTS Approve Bond Issue -— QUALITY BATHROOM FIXTURES JONES PLUMBING CO. . That new bond election called by the Pewitt school board for Sept. 21 should have the unanimous support of every qualified voter in the district. It should be supported by the citizens of the present school district because it will not change the amount of taxes which they must pay on their property. Those in the district being annexed to the Pewitt district should approve it because it will do no more than let them assume a fair amount of the debt for a school plant \^hich they want to use. The election will bring the area anhexed to the Pewitt district under the present tax rate of the Pewitt district. Pewitt has a tax rate of $1.50 with. 50 cents to pay off the bonded indebtedness.
