SWEETWATER IS GROWING AS NEW HOMES ARE ADDED Sweetwater is building and growing. New homes under construction verify this fact for no city can grow without additional places to live. Three houses are being rapidly completed in one block in the north- east section of the city. But the fact is that Sweet- water has been adding on new homes regularly for naity months, giving the city a gradual and continu- ous growth. Certainly the most satisfactory way for a community to go forward. Many blocks of newly paved streets with side- walks and curbs mark another phase of Sweet- water's growth. These improvements have made available many choice building sites and should prove an inducement to fill in with new homes much vacant property. A new water sup...

The foreign office spokesman answered Mussolini with the statement that Fiance is "on neither side of the Spanish bar- ricade" but, to the contrary, invented and still pursues the policy of non-intervention which Britain and France defended be- fore the League of Nations coun- cil during the past week.

Present plans call for developing dairying with the pos- sibility of bringing about erection of a milk plant to handle the product right at home. A group of interested farmers and businessmen met last week to center at- tention on the proposed plan. While diversified agriculture has long been held up as the model form of farming it is now more necessary than ever before. With this year's cot- ton acreage reduced in some counties to only half of that of last year it becomes quickly evident that a new approach to farming is needed. Sub- stitute crops for cotton must be grown yet at the same time so...
