W hove heard a number of peo-
ple from different aectiona of the
county complnin about the result of
the election placing a .mail tax on
property to create a fund for buying
park ite. We believe those who op-
pose soch are laboring under the
wrong impression of the usefulness
of park and the benefit derived
from them. They seem to have the
impreiuion that uch park would
benefit only the people in town while
it i. not the intention of those who
lire le.ding the movement to make it
ao narrow in it. scope of usefulness
We believe it will result in groat good
to everybody in the county nd ad-
joining countie. will lso he bene-

LUBBOCK COUNTY FARMERS WILL PLANT GREATER ACRE-
AGE TO WHEAT THAN EVER BEFORE
THE YIELD LAST YEAR WIS HIGHLY SATISFACTORY
OaU Abo Yielded Well And Will Figure Prominendr In Crop Pro-
gram The Coming Crop Season Farmer. Busy Pre-
paring Land For Another Big Crop.
A tour through the northwest part
of the county thi. week learned u
that the farmer of that section of
the county are going right ahead
ome with large fine mule or horse
and some with new tractors prepar-
ing their lands for planting of wheat.
In conversation with several of these
men we find that they are contem-
plating one of the largest acreage
to that crop this year they pver plant-
ed in this section of the state before.
While there are a few who planted
several acres to winter wheat the
big majority we find could not get
in the field early enough account of
the enormous crop raised the past
season nd the shortage of labor. One
of the reasons that these farmer are
preparing for the cultivation of the
wheat is to raise the crop requiring
less labor. There is at leant one half
of the bundle feeds raised the last
season in the shock in portion of the
county waiting for threshers.
Carrol Thompson Farm Demonstra-
tion Agent of thin county is advis-
ing the farmers to plant wheat say-
ing "that if prospects were ever good
for a large wheat yield the present
time is." He also gives advise to
the men who are planting wheat
for the first time a. to the nature
of the land on the farm most adapt-
able to this crop. Not only that but
Mr. Thompson requests these men
to be very careful in the buying of
the seed wheat as a great loss re-
