*! Near The Shores Of Lake Lavont THE WYLIE NEWS 9 I Thursday, June 0, 1957 BSOIL CONSERVATIONS DISTRICT NEWS 5OUR SOIL ★ OUR STRENGTHS Roy Carpenter, who larms west of Piano, says that again this; year he is going to leave his wheat straw on the ground like he has done for the last 20 years. Carpenter is a Collin Soil Con- servation District Cooperator. He believes that the practice of util- izing stubble and straw lor soil improvement is second only to that of growing clover. He doesn't expect this year's stubble to be any more difficult to handle than those of past years. Wheat didn't get as rank as he thought it might. He plans to oneway the stubble, leaving most of the straw laying on the surface. He has found that one- waying kills the weeds and cuts the straw into short pieces. If it is cut into small lengths, it does- n't drag on row equipment later on, he said. Carpenter says that straw on top of the ground helps keep most of the rain from running off. Utilizing crop residu...

We have it on good au- thority that the local lake has much, much more than its share of the fish population at present. And the interesting part is, we're told that fish in other area lakes now take their vacation at Lake Lavon, where they loll in the lush green fields, made possible by the rich, black lands of this section. Many never return to their old haunts after tasting of Lake Lavon's lusciousness, and those who feel constrained to re- turn are never the same again. They just pine away their lives.

r Thursday, June 27, 1957 THE WYLIE NEWS Near The Shores Of The "Humble" Story The Schultz Oil Company was producing 150 barrels of oil daily on the Schultz-Serrien lease in Wichita County when it was pool- ed with other producing proper- ties in 1917 to form Humble Oil- & Refining Company. Included in the merger was a four-inch pipe line from the lease to the railroad loading rack at Iowa Park, nine miles away. From that beginning in North Texas has evolved the Humble Pipe Line Company system em bracing 5700 miles of trunk lines and 3500 miles of gathering lines —more than enough to pierce the earth from pole to pole. Forty years ago this month, in Houston, Humble Oil & Refining Company came into corporate ex- istence — the pooled properties and experience of a group of pio- neer Texas oilmen who believed in themselves, each other and the future. Although June is the company's official anniversary, the story of Humble begins months eai'lier. Without a charter or a single si...
