"Perhaps some day some way will be found to keep the civic Hackers from collecting profits from other men's community efforts.** Hubert M. Harrison C. S. Lindsey asks re-election to County of fice TO Tift: VOTERS OF WOOD COUNTY: I want to take this method of expressing my appreciation to my many friends in Wood County who'have meant so much to me. I am indeed grateful for the confidence that you have placed in me as your public servant. I am fully aware of the responsibilities and duties of the office of the County School Superintendent, and I have tried �at all times to do my duty and be fair to all concerned. Practically all of my entire life has been dedicated to the Inspiration of the youth of our county in order that they might have a more useful and enjoyable future. This has been in line of my duty to my fellow man, for tomorrow's world is built on today's youth. In regard to my life history, I think that most of the people in Wood County know me very well. I have always had a great interest in people, and I have always tried to know and greet my friends in a courteous manner. Most Of my friends know that I have always stood for the things which I thought was best for all concerned. If the good people of Wood County see fit to elect me to a second term a.s County Superintendent, I assure you that I will put forth every effort to discharge the duties of the office as efficiently as possible. And I 'hope that I shall never cause you to regret that you have placV ed your confidence in me. Thanking you again. I remain your friend and public servant, C. S. Lindsey, 'soliciting your vote on May 5th. MEMORIAL SCHOOL Jottings Mrs. Margaret Beene's science classes were presented a talk on radar by Morris Barbee who is a member of the Air Force and stationed in North Dakota. This was very informal tive and helped us to realize what a big part radar plays in our country's defense, We also found some very in^ teresting science posters on the five olasses of animals in Mrs. Louie Kate Miller's fifth grade room. Outstanding ones were done by Steve Conley, birds; Dale Perritt, birds; and Tommy Thompson, snakes. Others are Don Roberts Abstract Company Abstracts - Title Certificates - - Title Insurance - Ownership Maps - Photostats (closed Saturdays) Ph: RO 3-2837 Quitman Sam claims tourist business fine until other states get in on it KdN#'� note: Phltataphcf SiMWbttry Sim f� Ml lohfr son gfasi farm on Sandy Creek fakes a backward took - st the tmtm business, his let ttf thto week reveal*. 6ear editar: I read the other day that a state official said Texas isn't getting all the tourist dollars it ought to and more effort ought to be spent getting more people tb visit us. that not only is the state Worth seeing but tourists leave a lot of money around When they come through. This made sense, but then the next day 1 read where another state was making the same plea, then the article went on to list the amount of revenue several other states report they get from tourist dollars. Now I'm no mathematician, but if Texas pulls a hundred thousand visitors from Louisiana, and then that state pulls a hundred thousand from Texas, it looks to me like the net gain will stay about what it was before the tourists left home, although filling station people in both states won't agree. If all 50 states are going to increase their wealth by increasing their tourist business, each one pulling visitors from all the others, it looks to me like it'll wind up with about the same total revenue every state had to start with. For example, if Oregon pulls First Baptist Church Rev.

Of course, when you save at the First National, you build more than a savings account. All the other services we offer are available to you.

They have also made salt maps of Alaska. Eighth grade students have finished their study of South A-merica in Geography. Project assignment was to illustrate some fact about the country by making a model, a poster or a booklet. Last week Mrs. Vandi-ver's room was filled with projects made by each of the students. Some of the projects showed each country in color, some projects showed countries and capitols, flags of each country, products, land features, and lakes, population, etc. Maps were made of salt, cloth, colored paper and glitter mounted on poster paper, cardboard, wood and glass. Oustanding ones were: 8A, Nancy Clark, Jerry Murphy and Sandra Johnson; 8B, Scotty Conley and Pat Williams, Glenda Elledge and Mike Toland; 8C, Paula Mitchell, Cecil Crone and Robert Nipper and Donald Beaty. The National Honor Society will 'hold its induction ceremony for new members Wednesday morning, March 21, at 9:00 a.m. Parents and friends are invited to attend.

Speaking of science the seventh and eighth grade science fair will be open to the public Friday from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m. Everyone should make it a point to be there. Kay Pool, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pool of Irving, is spending a few days here with her grandparents, .Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hearn. Mrs. Eddie Reardon of Bur-bank, Calif, is visiting her parents, Mr .and Mrs. O. P. Wilcox. fi mifliofi tourists from Texas, and Texas pulls a million from Oregon, or New Vork gets & million from California and vice versa, or any other combination you want to name, won't this be about like everybody in Winns-boro trying to make money by taking in each other's laundry? Understand, I don't blame the states for trying to pick up some tourist money, every state I ever heard of needs more revenue, and the tourist businss is here to stay, come summer and the people will strike out, but t hope no state is looking to me to help them out. Frankly, I ain't going. I intend to stay right here on this Johnson grass farm and see it on television. S. S. SOIL DISTRICT NEWS Conservation plans were developed the past week with the following land owners: They are Hermon D. Woodle, A. J. Draper, Innis L. Broach, I. E. Robinson and H. W. Swanner. These plans included proper use of the land and treatment that would maintain or increase soil fertility. Dr. G. H. Gamblin has cleared 40 acres of trees and brush to make way for planting of W S - 300 Bermuda. Gamblin has begun preparation for 50 acres of coastal Bermuda on land that was once crop land. Other Cooperators who are planting Coastal Bermuda in the next few weeks are: J. H. Mc-Elyea, I. E. Robinson, J. L Powell. The most successful Coastal Bermuda planters have found it best to break, disk and level all old beds, terraces, and plant good fresh sprigs in most seed beds in late March and early April. There has always been a problem in how to keep down the weeds and grass on new coastal plantings. Spraying, mowing, shredding, and plowing has fail ed to keep weeds and grass in check. To date the best tool to keep down weeds and crab grass competition in new coastal planting is with a rotary hoe. A rotary hoe does not .hurt the runners, but loosens the ground, kills weeds and grass if run over coastal about every week. While Common Bermuda should not be planted until "Cotton Planting Time" or in May. Now is a good time to begin seed bed preparation by breaking or disking the land as soon as possible. W S - 300 Bermuda is a selected strain of Common that made very good growth and spread last year and is recommended for planting on the same type land as other Common varieties. N-K-37, another common variety, is not recommended.
