ton farmer is to come into his own
and coadact his business along lines
of system and precision that is follow-
ed by other lines of industry.
The Centralize SeiliHfj.
The main purpose of the association
is to get together enough cotton at
central points covering large areas
asd to employ experts to sell it at the
highest available price instead of
hawking the cotton around at random
and taking -whatever the buyer is
-willing to give for it The fact "was
emphasized that the plan will not and
canwt work at miracle overnight. The'

er is a food cow. cow if bought

begin to pay good: dividends tomorrow.
No other known agency will do this.
Tbe evils iuttor which the farmers of
tAiy;are laboring are not the growth
of a day a week month or year but
extead back through a long period of
i yers -even to the eentury point and
nececanaot be corrected instantly. It
will take time patience and patriot-
ism eapled with zeal and fraternal
The speaker declared he had seen
enough .during recent months to know
positively that the farmers now are
addressing themselves seriously to the
" marketing problem and he feltsure
the present plans would succeed and
bring the relief so long sought to the
agricultural interests and especially
to the cotton growing features of this
great branch pf national life and in-
dustry. The farmers of the Southern
States are united in this regard as
they have never been and are working
together with a. unanimity of purpose
that will bring success if they' per-
sist in sticking together forgetting
selfish and personal purposes for a
wnile and striving to bring about that
spirit pf fraternalism and co-operation
that is one of the main factors of
success in all -other lines of business.
Walton Pfttbet director of commod-
ity organization of the Texas Farm
Bureau Federation at some length
went into details and explained! the
cotton cob tract This- was one of the
min features of the meeting
sight and the entire address of Mr.
Pfctpet aras given marked attention.
The seaker in making various iillus-
tratiep became humorous at times
which caused frequent ripples of
laughter to run through the audience.
Msay of the points taken by Mr. Pe-
teet were philosophical truths. For

oee ec the nam reasons why the cdt-
mm jjrswMMu was now occupying go
serietw a situation is because "where

DOROTHY PHILLIES IX
QNCKiT0 -.EVERY WOMAN"
iYRlC APRIL 11 AND 12
Allen t Hohibar. the author and
director of ''Humanity" has written
and directed "Once to Every Woman"
which will be presented at the Lyric
theatre next Monday and Tuesday
April 11th and 12th with Dorothy
Phillips as the star. Miss Phillips
captivated audiences everywhere thru
her inspired performances in the
above-mentioned subjects. Ani her
portrayal In "Once to Every Woman"
Is such that it will earn her the
highest praise. Mother love is the
keynote of the theme and the picture
shows the utter vanity of worldly am-
bition when not founded upon human
Miss Phillips appears as a country
girl whobecause of her personality
and voice is the pet of the family. An
offer comes which 'will give hoi- u
musical education in Europe and she
takes advantage of It In fact she
develops a case of exceptional ego
forgetting the -humanity of her peo-
ple. After manys. dramatic episodes
she flnajly reaches" the goal of her
ambitionr-the creation ot the star
role in. la new grand opera in New
York. Thep a. treirieiidous shock
causes tho loss of her voice. Her
new-found friends leave her. But she
finds real happiness when she returns
to her -numble- home. Allen Holubar
has given the picture a fine produc
tion. Prominent In the star's support
is Robert Anderson. Tho other play-

GREAT SERVICE LAST NIGHT IN
WHICH EVANGELIST SCORED
Tonight will be "Kiddies' Night" at
the First hristian revival meeting anu
the sermon' subject of Dr. Earley-wlll
bo "Naming the Baby." A chorus of
about 125 -children will provide the
music for the service under the lead
ership of W. B. Van Evera song lead
er for the revival.
The services Friday night were
most inspiring. The subject of Evan
gelist Eaiiey was "The New Birth.'
He said the doctrine of the new birth
Is taueht most emphatically in the
New Testament as a necessity for ad-
mlsion into the church or the king
(lorn of God. "Ye must be born again'
said- Jesus to Nicodemus. As flesh and
blood can not inherit the Kingdom o
God this new birth applies to alj ages
of those who would enter the king
dom thei evangelist said. The volun
tery acceptance of Jesus as the Sa
vior by faith and repentance . that
make one abhor sin and all evil turns
to God as the only refuge anc
hope. Those coming into Christ are
said to. be dead and in baptism buried
to the world and arisen to waiK in a
ntw and livirig wayi Many of the
members of the various churches do
not seem to have the new life or be in
Christ judging by thew ay they talk
and. live. Dr. Eaiiey declared. Having
one's name on tho church book does
not make one a Christian. They are
placed there because they are Chris-
tians but sometimes folks are fooled
while God Is never foolea. We are for
God or 'against Him; children of God
or of the devil.
Mr. Van Evera led the great chorus
in a most inspiring song service. The
singing is a great feature of the meet-
ing meeting. Mr. Van Evera's solo
"My Wonderful Dream." touched ev-
ery heart in the audience. t
Great services are in prospect for
Sunday. The sermon subject at 11 a.
m. will be "In Christ" and the even-
ing sermon subject will be "Prepare
to Meet Thy God."
