W; Lane, special representative in the department of public re- lations. It is believed this part of Texas will produce as much Wheat this year as in 1937, which means that the Texas crop should reach the official estimate of 39,862,000 bushels made April 1, compared with last year's 41,690,000 bushels. With more moisture it can reach last year's total. Wheat in most of the dry land farming areas of Northwest Texas has made wonderful im- provement during the past 30 days, and stands a chance of making close to a normal crop. Immediately east and north of Amarillo prospects are poor, but east of Panhandle, they improve to Oklahoma line.
