For the Betterment of Borger
Contract for construction of a sewer system in Borger
.will be let June 1, Mayor Pace has announced.
This is great news for Borger.
The work will be rushed, and within a month or two the
• sewer will be ready for use, with a disposal plant of the lat-
est and best type west of the city.
Such moves as this make for the building of a city.
- Health is imperative in any community, and a sewer sys-
tem is one of the first requisites of health in any city.
Borger already has good water in the city mains.
A health officer has been named who will supervise
the work of a staif of city health and sanitation employees.
This department is at work, and has been fur some time, see-
ing to it that food handlers keep clean, that the town gen-
erally is kept in sanitary condition.
All this makes for the betterment of the community. It
adds to the inducements for settling in Borger, and to the
pleasure and safety of living here.
If the bonds to be voted on June 11 carry, then Borger
will have not only paved roads leading to it across the county,
but will have Main Street paved its entire length.
This would be a great forward step for the county and
for the city.
Borger must vote in this election, and vote for the bonds.
A two-thirds majority is required to carry them.
Blazing the Paths of the Air
The story of Charles Lindbergh, winging his way alone
through the fog over the broad Atlantic, is thrilling, spectacu-
But it is more than that.
It is the story of another of those pioneers of civilization
and progress, of another of those who brave death to bring
the nations of the earth closer together.
Dare-devils these aviators may be. They may not be fly-
ing across the Atlantic, across the Pacific, across continents
r and around the world, for any reason except for the joy of
achievement, the glory of adventure. But the result remains
the same. They are proving the pathways of the air.
It is no idle dream to imagine planes following in the path
of Lindbergh and Nungesser and Coli between New York and
Paris aa now planes wing from Dallas to Chicago, and across
and criss-cross this whole broad land, carrying mail and pas-
It is not too much to think of air service from England to
India, following the path of the Englishmen who started Fri-
day on a non-stop flight between these two nations.
Already definite talk is under way of airmail linking
North and South America.
We may see the whole world tied together by airship
And it is to Charles Lindbergh and his like that we will
owe this development.

A distinguished cast, as befits the

Morris lends her ethereal lovlniess
to the role of Amaryllis Minton, while
her childhood is portrayed by little

John Guido as a boy, and Raymond
Keane as John as a inan. The excel

the part of the boy's father, v. hile
