"There are C" committees similar
o this one working throughout
Texas," the speaker said. Oor con
servation ork includes the inspect -j
ing of warehouses where food, cloth
ing and other necessities of life are
1 stored and of the factories where
these products are made. Naturally
without the cooperation of such busi
! ness organizations as this and the
people of the communities our work
1 is valueless. If plants are not prop
I erly lighted now they should be. This
j Is one of our works. High fences
should be built around these plants.
' You don't know when a foe is liable
' to visit any of these industries for
. the purpose of destroying them.
! Appeal for Cooperation
"Before the war our companies were
only responsible to the stockholders
when these plants were destroyed.
Now we are morally responsible o
the government. We would like to
have several men appointed here on a
committee to have a- mass meeting
to discuss these matters. Charles F.
Thomas, general chairman of the con-1
servation work in Texas, will arrive1
in El Paso Wednesday. He is the rep
resentative of the government througn
t the insurance companies."
j Worklnp far Government.
Mr. Moseley said that it was their
idea to impress upon the people of El
Paso and other cities and towns where
they carried on their work the neces
sity of the conservation of food stuff
and other resources from fires and
floods. The speaker said they were
here to gather data for the govern
ment and that their work would cost
the government millions of dollars,!
but their companies were giving their!
serwes and rapine all expense. He I
suested that the mass meeting oe( other states.
ne d ths evening, but xir. wyatt and
other menibi-rs expressed the opinion
that if thei should wait until Thurs
dai a much larger crowd would at
tend it. It wa definitely decided to
hold the meeting Thursday evening at
the chamber of commerce.
AVI 1 1 Talk to Club.
Members of the Adclub, Rotary, and
the Kiwanis club who were present
extended the three men an invitation
to address these clubs at luncheons
this week. At the luncheon today ol
the Adclub they will be the guests of
George H. Clements. On behalf of
notary, Mr. Martin asked the men to
speak at the luncheon Thursday and
J. W. Kirkpatrick invited them to
address the Kiwanis club Friday.
Dr. Ramey, who was appointed
chairman of the Rotary committee to
wait upon the directors to urge ihem
to make an effort to secure for El
Paso a government recuperation camp,
made a brief talk. Other members of
the committee were A. E. Rowlands.
Edward W. Kayser and F- B. Fletcher.
Would Urine People Here.
Dr. Ramey said that it was the
opinion of Rotary that if a govern
ment recuperation camp was estab
lished here it would probably be the
best means of getting more people
here. "We have the climate," the
speaker said. "And if we had tbe
stamp of approval of the United States
government it would make Kl Paso
one of the greatest health resorts in
the world. After the war we would
not only get health seekers of wealth
from the United States, but also from
England, France and other foreign

The farmers in Ohio and other
middle western and eastern states
who are wealthy and own large farms
are not coming here to take up farms
and abandon their present ones. But
if they have tuberculosis, as many
have, they will come here if proper
inducements are made. We should
not throw away the greatest resource
that God has given us. 1 Paso is
largely built up by men who came
here for their health. Fifty percent
of them came here for health. For
us to say to other sick people, 'We
don't want you here, is to cut our
Haven't Advertised for Sick.
"We have not properly advertised
El Paso as a health resort for tuber
culars, as other cities have done. But
they come here, anyway. Our city is
never referred to as a place for tuber
cular? to recuperate. If we did adver
tise the city we would get many
wealthy families here. We would get
the wealthv farmeis who are afflicted
with the disease from Ohio, Indiana.

Tells of Meaftace to llapper.
Mr. Wyatt explained that he had
sent a number of telegrams to J. A.
Happer at Washington, representing
the chamber of commerce regarding
the recuperation camp. "Personally I

in the northwest. If El Paso wants
tne one in tne soutnwest, she can
probably have It. Mr. Haoner said. T
do not believe the majority of the
people oi rit iaso would object to
such a camp But sentiment Is some,
w hat divided."
Directors A'ot Fighting- It.

the ca np. and that while It was the
opinion of the board of directors that
hey wouid not put up a fight for It
people had. who were of the oninian
that the board of directors were fight-
"s Bsamsi naving sucn a rr.mp nerc.
Mr. Kayser said the fact that such
a camp would carry with It the stamp
of appioval of the United States was
sufficient for the chamber of com
merce and other organizations to
work for. He said it would stimulate
the milk industries, the sale of farm
ing products and other business. He
said It was the sense of the Rotary
to do whatever it could to coopera'e
with the chamber of commerce and it
was not Its intention of fighting It,
Would -Not lie In City.
J. A. Smith said that if the govern
ment located a camp here, it would
be located outside the city and that
the government would safs"-ara the
health of the citizens. He said this
would be one of the greatest advertis
ing mediums for El Paso. He said he

Judge Adrian Pool spoke of attend

The speaker said that the Ft. Worth
El Paso highway, the first to receive
state aid. would be completed within
a year and would be one of the great

speaker said that when this road was
completed it would be an all vear

than could the enamel signs and could
still be read. They are also much
cheaper, he said.
Says Rotary To Get Help.
Mr. Martin said that Robert Kra
kauer, president of El Paso Rotary,
bad announced that if the cham
ber of commerce would cooperate
ith Rotary in this work and would
turn over to it the maps made by Mr.
Locke, which designate where these
signs should be placed, the Rotarians
would put them up.
Mcni To Be Simple.
It was suggested by Mr. Wyatt
that th3 signs selected not bave too
mnch advertising on because when
tourists are traveling at night they
cannot distinguish the signs while
driving fast and nsing a flash light.
Mr. Martin said that it was the idea
of Rotary to simply adopt a sign
something similar to that nsed by the
Southern California Auto club. On one
edge of the sign the words "El Paso
