LET 'EM RANT Why should we worry when some little gimlet editor down in the Sticks devotes his energy to knocking the Panhandle? I he little editor isn't acquainted with the Panhandle and he doesn't know any better. He has never traveled and is not informed. He has perhaps never seen over the hill into the next county yet he considers it his conscientious and christian duty to warn his constituency against the drouths, the coyotes and centipedes of West Texas, hundreds of miles away from his dooryard. Some wall eyed fellow who came out here, got homesick for the licklogs of his old home place, and sta...

As a matter of fact, the Oklahoma constitution was one of the great est freaks as a basis for funda mental state law that was ever prepared. Time has never proven that there was even one real statesman in the Oklahoma con- stitutional convention. But that had nothing to do with the ques- tion of adoption. The people panted statehood. The people had spoken in the election of con- stitutional delagates, and they were certain to adopt the cons...

I t "f s, or so eessary, out of ry not defray lication ARD. State. PROPOSES TO IMPOUND LARGE BODY OF WATER The dry years ol' 1917 and 1918 were a blessing to the city ot Ai ilene in disguise. Abilene was growing and did not have suffici- ent water. The source dried up. Aid Abilene went into the hills southeast of that city and found a supply of living water sufficient to maintain a large creek in the val- ley below. Abilene found that by placing a dam across that creek at a place where nature seemingly had provided a natural site, that tremendous body of water could be impounded and a large lake formed. The supply thus created would supply Abilene with water after it became a city of one hun- dred thousand people. Not only that but the lake would furnish water to irrigate the valley along the creek. Wichita Falls had to have a water supply of like nature to meet requirements. Sweetwater, as small as that eity is, had to go to the hills to build a lake for it supply of water. There a...

Altho they felt sure that every man of Canadian and the surrounding country would be vitally interested in the testing of our possibilities, still they were pleased to see the people take bold of the proposition as quickly as they did. Because all of the light was be- ing thrown upon the stage at the sale it was very difficult to see the hands and faces of those who were bidding. Consequently there were some who lost their preferences and were perhaps discouraged from bidding again. There were some whose hands were not seen. If these people will come to the office of C. H.

NOT MUCH CAMPAIGN SHOULD BE NEEDED FOR THE ROAD AMENDMENT ig;i I H m I te- HS ck A statewide campaign is about to be started in Texas for the adoption, at an election next fall, of the proposed constitutional amendment authorizing the state to issue $75,000,000 road bonds for the construction of a compre- hensive system of hard surfaced roads. In such a campaign it will only be necessary to familiarize the people with the nature of the project and how its seemingly mammoth cost will be more than offset by advantages to every county in the state. Show the people of Texas how they can profit by spending money and they will spend it, even if they have to go in debt to raise the money. The decision to inaugurate a ;r. statewide campaign was reached db recently at a meeting at Austin of the committee created at the an- nual convention of the Good Roads Association at Mineral Wells. It was decided to assign a number of good speakers to campaign over the state and impress upon the people t...
