Gibb Gilchrist, state highway engineer, last week
wrote Judge O. R. McMordie the following letter con-
cerning the intention of the highway department which
leaves no shadow of a doubt but that the state will re-
route its highways and miss this county unless Hemphill
County votes paving bonds:
"I see no objection in stating to you that the state
highway commission is determined to construct State
Highway No. 4. entirely across the state. They expressed
their purpose of deferring action on Highway No. 4,
from Wheeler to Perryton, at your own request, until
your county had been given an opportunity of voting
bonds for this construction. If you fail, Robert County
has indicated their desire and willingness to provide
funds for both Highways Nos. 4 and 33, and the highway
commission, at the last meeting, expressed their inten-
tion, in case of failure in Hemphill County, to give
Rob?rts County a chance to get this road.
"I will say that the commission is very anxious for
you to go ahead' and hopes that you will be successful
in your bond issue, but since we are still required to call
on counties for assistance, and the further fact that
State Highway No. 4. is one of our cardinal roads, and
also due to the fact that it can be built through Roberts
County, if Hemphill County fails, I believe this will be
PAVE ROADS AND
N. ABRAHAM WRITES THAT
PAVING WILL BRING
You have never had anything'
good in your life Without your
having to pay for it. Now, we
have a chance to pave our roads
and oitfy paying one-third the
cost and receiving the full bene-
fit of it.
We will never have a better
opportunity to pave and this
might be the only opportunity,
for if we should lose the state
highways and neighboring towns
get. them, then we have to pay
our money to keep up our own

From what was said at the
meeting it did not appear that
the idea, of paving had been very
much considered, but when told
of the measures being taken in
H,?mphill county, and to the west
of that point, with the possibility
that Lipscomb county might join
in the movement, it was quite
evident that our Oklahoma
friends were beginning to look

An unusually interesting P. T.

ternoon, at the High School Aud-

the feature number. Pupils im-
personated each month of the

robes and two pages. Seventy-

some manner the sack on which
Bob was sitting slipped and fell
to the pavement throwing its
rider with it.
Bob was caught on the spring
of a car and dragged for 'a short
distance. Physicians who attend-

his head each about six inches
long and a third smaller gash.
WHEAT CROP PROSPECTS
WERE NEVER BETTER
Prospects for a good wheat
crop in Hemphill county never
looked better at this season of
the year. 1
Parker D. Hanna, county agent,
says he estimates there are close
to 20,000 acres sown to wheat.
This is nearly a 10 per cent in
crease over last year. Little,
