ESSENTIALS OF COMMUNITY 1 GROWTH Speaking on the subject "Water a Fictor in iclpre the convention or the Western Irrigation Association at'Katnloopa, H. 1, Prof. TV. S. Thoniber, Director Ex- enaton Service, State College of nglon, made n r.olnt that, many of the most successful communities have de- veloped by turning Inelr former mis- fortunes and failures lo good account. "The growth ot n community la an evolution of tlie largest kind, and fin- il development must not be expect eel n a year or even ten said Prof. Thornber. "In fact our most success- ful communities JIIFO been developer) out of a scries of very radical changes. Rarely or ever doca a community slarL at once In llie developing of an In- dustry LhaL remains the principal In- dustry of the community.

"If "a community would he success- ful it'tnusl early In Its development learn thnt true meaning of co-opera- tion'.'1 Community co-operation means more than Iho mere getting together of ft few of Ihe good business men ol the town.

She continues: "I called in a doctor, who gave me some ointment, but it did not seem to ease the child's pain, which was intense. 1, there- fore, discontinued it, and commenced applying Zam-Ruk. This wonderful balm eased the pain almost as soon as applied, but to make sure I was doing the right thing, I called in a second doctor. When I told him what I was using.he said 'That's continue the Zam-liuk :treatment; there's nothing so good for scalds and burns.'
