PROPOSITION FOR ANNUAL
FAIR STRONGLY ENDORSED
BY PROGRESSIVE CITIZENS
Suggestion Proffered By Daily Pan-
handle Meets With Ready and Hearty
Approval of Leading Business
Men Their Views
The Daily Panhandle prompted
ly a desire to determine the atti-
tude of tho people relative) to tho
proposed establishment of a perman-
ent fair organization in thls city
ought expression from a number of
the leading business mon yesterday.
Follovlng are brief expressions from
the j ?ntlemen interviewed:
J. ('. Storm "A rounty or dis-
trict f. t as auggcsifd by the Daily
Panhnudlo would unquestionably
b a ip'.emlld thing for tho city and
all tributary territory. The live-
stock agricultural diary and poul-
try c: hlblts that cbuld bo made here
imder lystec ill; effort would attract
inany thousands of people. The
coat of Mir would be offset by
the largo business going made by
Amarlllo as a result of tho many vial
tors coming hero and getting inter-
ested. The social features and
amurcments which would naturally
be an aiuilllary to a big fair would
soon become as Important and agree-
able as those held ln'connoctlon with
cattlemrns' conventions. From tho
standpoint. tf. culture education aad '
business Amarlllo and the Amarll.o

( 'buries L Green 4' A permanent
fair organization with an annual ex-
hibit as suggested by the Dally
V'uii.inndle is In my Judgment ono
vi I. greatest needs of Amarlllo.
.iiis ciiy Is to be the Dallas of tho
ii ii country and should have a
I. .. i i rclativo value with special
. i .' . i c to the Panhandle and West
'j . t. . generally. We have domon-
Mi.ii'il tho possibilities of Amarlllo
i. a 'invention city and the next
Mr.'i forward will bo the thorough
i . t'.oi Mcment of tho fair Idea with
piitposo set and determined to iput
I I. into execution. The whole pea-
pie in my judgment will unite in
this effort and this will s'tr the
I-oil. I. W "1 am heartily in
acord with the permanent fair or-
ganizatini s.hcnio as proposed
through the Dally Panhandle. . It
Is a scheme fraught with great-Tos-glbilltles
and destined to do more
for the development of Amarlllo
"than all other things put together.
It should bc our purpose "s tho
metropolis of the kit at plains count-
ry to coo. erai'. wl" the various
smaller cities and communities in
getting up their comity fairs. These
In turn phould he encouraged to
come inio the larger and grandev ex-
position of products and possibilltlcg
once each year In Amarlllo. In this
manner we coub build one of the!
most powerful instltutlon8 in the j
it'thls time be estimated. Tho
oundnepg of this idea will bc readily
attested by each and every man who
has witnessed the growth of the fair
movement where properly support-
ed and encouraged. By all means
let ug have a permanent fair It's
success Is assured."
Tlo F. Turner "What do I
think of the suggestion of the Dally
Panhandle that Amarlllo should
have n permanent fair orgaiiizulioa
with an annual exhibit for this en-
tir section of the state.' The ques-
tion seems superflnoufi but I will
respond since the question has been
asked. I stand today and have al-
waj stood for everything that I
for the upbuilding of the tireater
Amailllo. and I know
thing that will bo a greater step ;
forward to the goal desired than the
promotion of th propose.! fair m
itnylng thla 1 have icierenc to th
t'luht lillld Of a fair onn that thai
squarely in r -.pport of and cooperate
with regardless of cliques and pint-
lex. The '. 'y way Hint this thing
once adopi .1 can bo lnndo it go Is
for the wlndo pelade o pet behind
It. Suppoit is ei-wntlaj to even the
bent institutions und nothing need1
it moro than ft fair w.osc jltlmnte
enj g to show to the world tho pood !
points of a city community or sec-1
Hon of the country. U Is my judg-
nient that Just such support as this
will be found for th proposed fair." j
W. H. Kuhgt'tK "Amarlllo roul l
do no greater thing than to follow
tho suggestion set forth in the Daily
Panhandle and get without J"lay In-
to the task of establishing a perman
ent fair organization. We. have felt
tho neoj for Jast mn u ;u Institution
and tho resourcefuine.. m pussllil-
HHeu of the country nn In no way
bo so quickly and thoroughly l-ovn
as through this medium. It will
prove doubly worth the lines::. nih
