When asked what improvement
was most needed in the commun-

that a road to Sanford was most
im porta nt.
George Finger, chairman of the
roads committee, reported that
ai ccessful work had been accom-
plished toward the proposed San-
ford road. G. P. Cain, head of the
Texas Relief commission for Hut-
chinson county, reported that
plans for a road thru the Huber
plant to Antelope creek crossing1
on the Sanford road were in the
Austin office for approval.
Cain stated that when bonds
were voted for Highway 117 north
i.f Borger, an amount of $85,000
remained unused. An attempt is
being made thru the Chamber of
Commerce to transfer these bonds
for t.he construction of new lateral

The Junior Chamber of Com-
merce has losl one of its best
friends. There was never a better
man than Bruce Shulkey. His
place will be hard to fill."
Monte Wolford, president of the
Junior Chamber of Commerce.
"Mr. Shulkey was helpful to his
terest in us.
B. C. Shulkey, who has served
as superintendent of Borger
schools for the past three years,
left Wednesday morning for Fort
Worth where he will take up his
new duties as assistant superin-
tendent of Fort Wprth schools
Shulkey will be in charge of the
35 elementary schools in which
22,000 students are enrolled. He
will direct the work of the 550
elementary teachers. The entire
school system at Fort Worth has a
faculty of 1.000 teachers and a
t<;ta 1 of 36,000 scholastics.
The Fort Worth schools have
taken the educational lead in Tex-
as and in the South, Supt. Shul-
key believes. A four million dol-
lar building program is now un-
derway. The schools are also lead-
ing in tlie curriculum revision
program, and the other schools are
watching. Dr. H. B. Brunei- of
Columbia University, under whom
Shulkey has studied, and J. C.
Parker, are supervising curricu-
lum work at Fort Worth.
Supt. W. M. Green is very pro-
gressive in his ideas and the en-
tire school board and other mem-
bers of the administration are very
fine people, Shulkey stated. "Al-
though I have made few contacts
| in Fort Worth, I believe it will be
a high privilege to work there."
"I appreciate the courtesy ex-
tended me by the people of Bor-
ger." Shulkey said. "In spite of a
tense political situation here, I
am glad that the factions have
refrained from using the school as
a political fr.otball.
"I have enjoyed working with
the splendid group of trustees.
Their fine cooperation and the in-
terest of the public has made it
possible to build up our schocl
[system. I trust that Borger citi-
zens will continue to give the
trustees the same fine coopera-
tion in the future."
Shulkey stated that he had
had the opportunity in bo associ-
ated with W. A. Mcintosh of Am-|
jarillo. who will become superin-
tendent here, for the past five
j years. "He lias gained the confi-
I dence and respect of school peo-
j pie throughout this section," Sliul-
