THE SCHULENBURG STICKER
Here And There
this farm was poor but the own-
ers now realize that they are go-
ing to have to plant more soy
beans in order to put nitrogen
back in the soil, so that this land
■will continue to produce. One of
their neighbors had a 4,000 acre
irrigated farm that was for sale
at 75,000 pesos, which is equal
to about $15,000 American money.
All equipment, the house, furni-
ture, oxen and everything else
connected with the farm was in-
Cob Scouts Show
Work To Lions Club
A number of the
Cub Scouts were
present at the Lions
meeting on last
Wednesday to dis-
play the type of work which these
boys are doing.
Harlan Adamcik had arranged
• a poster showing the type of foods
eluded in the sale. Last year, this ^at the Cub Scout should eat
one farm cleared over $7,000.00
American money and under regu-
lar Mexican peon supervision.
About half way down to Mexico
City, we found a very fertile val-
ley that produced thousands of
tons of oranges. Ice cold, pure
orange juice sold at 2c for a large
glass jar. Judging from what you
could see from the road, millions
of orange trees, many of them
just being set out, iwill supply
Mexico with more oranges than
they will be able to consume. T'n3
fruit, however, cannot be sent into
the United States because of ex-
isting laws of this country. At
the present time shippers there
do not even crate the fruit. It is
piled loose into open box cars.
Oranges we purchased there are
superior to what we usually buy
here locally as we get the second
and third grades, while the eas-
tern states get the best. As one
of the more educated men told us:
You can come into Mexico and
■work and in a few years make
good money. The thing is that
you must know the customs, the
language and habits of the people
or else they will not do business
■with you. If you have friends in
Mexico they will do more for
you than you can do for your-
self. In our 1800 mile drive in
Mexico, we never at one time saw
more than thirty soldiers at any
one station, and stations were
few and far between. Soldiers pay
is 40 cents per day American
daily in order to maintain a
healthy body and mind. Yommie
Brown displayed a napkin or let-
ter holder that he had made from
an apple box, and told what the
insignias thereon represented.
Herbert Stendebach displayed a
'what not' made of plywood and
finished with a high gloss var-
nish finish. Clyde Schulz display-
ed a home constructed magnetic
lift that had been made by La
Veme Huser. He also showed and
explained how it worked. J. T.
Strobel presented a • box kite
about four feet high that he had
made. He also told of a kite
derby that will be held on April
12, to which all of the mothers
and fathers of the Cub Scouts
would be invited. Kenneth Lorfing
had constructed a bird house and
told of the value of blue birds and
martins to the people, as these
birds live almost entirely on in-
sects. Ben Speckels displayed a
kite made in the form and paint-
ed as a bear. The bear represents
a rank or title in cub scouting.
Joe Kloesel, who is ready to be
taken into scouting as soon as
he has reached 12 years of age,
told of the various ranks and in-
signias that can be won in Cub
Scouting and what the cubs must
do to earn each rank.
President Joe Estill appointed
j the following men to aid the
Scout Masters* in keeping the lo-
cal boy scout troop in action; John

After thoroughly investigating the records of the
Schulenburg Mutual Life Insurance Association both
here at home, and in the Insurance Department at
Austin, I became convinced that this Association is
operating on a very successful and economical Plan
of Life Insurance protection and that its future and
continued success is assured.
I, hereby, wish to announce that I have acquired
an interest in The Schulenburg Mutual Life Insurance
Association and that I will try to manage the affairs
of the Association in an efficient and competent
manner to the best interest of the Members.
The Schulenburg Mutual Life Insurance Associa-
tion is a well established "Home Organization" offering
Life Insurance Protection at a most reasonable cost. 1
therefore invite my friends and acquaintances, and the
public in general to include in their Life Insurance needs
a Policy with this good "Home Organization.'
