Man Rich Today
After in Poverty
Only 6 Years Ago
Garden City, Kanu., July 8, (UP)
—R. L. (Rube) Crist, son of a pi-
oneer %unkarci preacher, watched
his 10 combines bite through the
last of his thousands of acres of
wheat today, a rich man where six
years ago he was “below bottom.’’
Then, seven years of famine in
this great cereal bowl were coming
to a end. Ahead were six tremen-
dous money crops of wheat in a
row, the first time wheat men in
Western Kansas experienced such
Crist, who lives near Holcomb,
Kan., 28 miles Northwest of here,
was a debt-burdened tenant farm-
er then. Today he owns 7,000
acres of land, some of ft irrigated.
His huge granary is filled with
the new wheat, the “miracle’ crop
which may hit as much as 215,000,-
000 bushels to become Kansas’
second largest wheat crop.
“I’m holding my wheat and not
worrying about elevators getting
only a car a day when they could
fill a dozen,” he said as he watch-
ed the combines work.

Crist insured his standing crop
against fire for about $200,000 last
month and it turned out better
than expected, and with no .fires.
Crist, like many another Western
Kansas farmer doesn’t plant his
entire acreage every year. He has
learned re can usually get twice as
much wheat every second summer
by permitting some to lay fallow.

Distant horizons softly, call to me,
From land of sunset splendor far
Where golden sands stretch far
as one can see,
I must return to li again some day.
A lonely trail wanders across the
Through blue-bonnets, the color
o£, the sky;
Wind in the sage sings a mellow,
While pinto clouds go slowly
Small, oink adobe houses here and
And haopy peons dozing in the
A little chapel where they go for
And solemn peace when drowsy
day is done.
The twilight saints light all the
stars to glowT,
And smile down on the ranches
