One of the guests, Dr. J. I.
Whittenberg of Louisville, Ky.,
made a short talk, declaring

return to his old home and meet
his old friends. In speaking of

that Fannin county was still the
garden spot of the world, but
it was necessary that a radical
change be made in our agricul-
tural methods, and that there
must be a “back to nature”
movement before we again come
into our own. Realizing this
fact, Dr. Whittenberg is here
doing considerable improving on
his farming property north of

of County Agent Carswell, will
