SOIL CONSERVATION SERVICE
With plans for the establishment of a soil and
water conservation district in this watershed adopt-
ed by farmers and landowners at a mass meeting
held in connection with the regular meeting of the
Bartlett Soil Conservation Association Friday
night the need for the services of the Bartlett Soil
Conservation Camp 7-T become even more urgent
at the present time.
Technical advice of the trained personnel of the
camp now becomes invaluable to the future of
agriculture in this the richest black land section of
Texas and perhaps of the nation. Survey of this
area for the establishment of a district and for the
setting up of a program is a problem that requires
Realizing this need after studying district set-
ups as established in Oklahoma and Arkansas
farmers landowners and voters present signed peti-
tions requesting the Secretary of Agriculture to re-
tain the camp here until district organization Could
Evidence of the value of such a set up is seen in
the fact that owners of twelve thousand acres of
land in this area signed the petition requesting that
the camp be retained and that a district be set up
after hearing th proposal explained Friday night.
The Association plans to have the proposition ex-
plained to every landowner within a twelve mile
radius of Bartlett and seek to secure signatures
from at least tvo-thirds of the landowners in order
that the district set-up will be completed and ready
to operate as soon as state enabling legislation is
As was stated by V. C. Marshal president of
the State Soil and Water Conservation Associa-
fapm at the' meeting Friday "Nothing will have
lore bearing on the future of agriculture than the
eonservation of soil." Cotton production has drop
ped 50 pounds per acre in the past 25 years. Staple
lengths are shorter and staple length is very defi-
nitely tied in with soil fertility.
Farmers of this area are seeking to assure the
future of agriculture and of the nation in taking
the initiative in this plan of district organization
whereby they will set up their own program as it
best fits the needs of the soil and carrying out that
program through cooperative effort. Their pro-
gram should receive the endorsement of every
landowner in this section.

CHRISTIAN WORK AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE
The statement that "90 per cent of all Christian
people became Christians before they reached the
age of 25" made by Rev. R. W. Preboth at the Bap-
tist Revival Sunday night is worthy of the consider-
ation and examination of all Christian people.
While the percentage seems large to the aver-
age layman those who may have been in doubt
were quickly convinced when its truth was demon-
strated by testing the large congregation present.
By asking each to rise as his age limit was reached
Rev. Preboth found one who became a Christian
after reaching the age of 50 one after 40 four or
five after 30 and less than a dozen between the
ages of 25 and 30 and the rest before they reached
the age of 25.
Too much importance it appears can not be
attached to the work' and organization of young
people by Christian groups.
