and Development Organization What is destined to bo one of the strongest and most important civic nnd development organizations In Northern California la that of the West Sacramento Commercial Club just recently organized In the new model farms district across from the ato capital The club at present is composed of residents and new settlers In West Sacramento only but It Is the Imme diate purpose to start a whirlwind campaign for membership that will In olude every good citizen in the south ern half of the county In fact the president of the club W J Lelnber ger who Is one of tha county super visors of the district states that he hopes to have a membership of at least five hundred In Ihe next six months It Is intended that this commercial body shall represent the best Inter ests In this community and to be a dominant factor in the civic improve ment of the territory which It repre sents A national campaign of advertising Is proposed along lines that will be both unique and educational Califor nlans It Is snld will be as much in terested In the proposals nnd plans of tho organization as those living out side the state One of the efforts of the new club will be to give everybody who desires It accurate Information on Intensified farming and farm management A work of tills kind It Is said has never licen published before and should prove of Inestimable value not only to easterners contemplating residence In California but to farmers In this state as well U is also staled that tho club pro poses to establish and maintain a standard of colonization This nt first thought appears a daring venture but when the advantages of restricted settlement are considered the results aimed for are worth the effort The plan is new only as it applies to nn agricultural community and Is along the same lines as applies to the finest suburban residence sections Iti some ot our larger cities For example It la said thatno Orientals or negroes will be permitted to locate in the new district This tile club can control by reason of an agreement wllh the land company which Is developing the district to Incorporate such a clause In their sell ing contract which covers a period of seventeen years and Is absolutely legal and binding This it is expected will establish West Sacramento and In California the first community of model farms and model colonization The club In
