New Experiments to Save Onion Crop
Efforts of John W. Carpenter, head of the Texas Power
and Light Co. to save the onion crop of Texas is a step that
deserves the highest commendation. That Mr. Carpenter sees
the great field for him to render an outstanding service to the.
people and that he is willing to spend money and time to try
and bring about this advance step which would be a boon to
farmers, indicates he has a high quality of altruism about him.
The onion crops have from time to time gone to waste and
have impoverished numbers of farmers because of the low
price and the fact of the pro-
duct being highly perishable.
