that raiirl t the house. "Social ad-

other of the strone expressions of
the speaker. He referred to tho
worth of the rhurehen and educa-

ing manner. To promote any and
every legitimate enterprise tnat la
for the rood of Amarlllo and tha
Panhandle countrv was declared one
the basic and greatest principle est

declaration bv Mr. Costello was that
the realty men are the real founder

txlk was closed with a plea for "co-

speaker at the gathering. "The Am-

Mr Turner made a plea for tha
