"Other Panhandle towns were
keeping house in tents and they had
a regular midway or street of them,
and the people were crowding into
them just like they were into the
Panhandle exhibits in the main
building." Mr. King said: "The
people all over Texas are just real-
izing that the Panhandle is a part of
the state," he added: "I verily
believe we'll get a big immigration
from Central and North Texas this
year and next as a result of the ex-

Hereford was honored last Satur-
day afternoon by a brief visit from
H. W. Campbell, the "court of last
resort" on Scientific Farming. The
distinguished gentleman spent but a
a few brief minutes with us, arriv-
ing on the morning train and depart-
ing on the 3:08 for Canyon, as he
was anxious to reach Plain view by
next train. Mr. Campbell intended
staying over until Sunday morning,
but his hurried departure was oc-
casioned by the discovery that the
morning "plug" rested on Sunday.
Accompanied by J. N. Russell,
Mr. Campbell made a hurried trip
out to the farm of Judge Gough,
near town, and returned just in time
to catch the afternoon train. He
was greatly dissapointed in not be-
ing able to visit other places near
here, but promised to return before
long. Mr. A. W. Gregg had ar-
ranged to show the visitor over his
farm, but lost out in the abrupt
change of plans.
Mr. Campbell's stay was so short
that he had little time to talk farm-
ing. He stated that his farm at
Plainview was in fair shape, though
through a small a miscarriage of in-
structions one plowing had been mis-
directed and the result was that the
crop would not be just what he
would have desired.
Work at the College Is going along
in good order. We are now in the
second month of our work and in-
terest seems to be at a high pitch.
New students are enrolling daily,
the latest matriculate being a young
man from Canyon City. The im-
provements around the College seem
to have given new impetus to the

Considerable interest has been
manifested in football. The boys
are now well fitted witn new uniforms
and daily practice is being indulged
in. Mr. Frisxell is coaching the
boys and is rapidly developing them
into a fast team. He uses the new
system of football all together.
Many of the boys are becoming
adepts in handling the forward pass
and side kick.
The first game will be played Oct.
30tn on the College campus. Our
opponents in this game will be the
Amarillo High School team. They
are reported to be a fast team and
promise to give us a good game.
We invite every lover of true sport
to come out and enjoy the game
with us. Cut your enthusiasm loose
and join in supporting the boys.
We must win the first game.
