OF LOVLIEST WIVES
Dr. Cutler Says Here Are the
Opportunities for the
"Missouri Women Most
Beautiful and Make Love
Dr. W P. Cutler, state food and
dairy commissioner, has risen up int
arms against the migration of young.
men from Missouri to other states in
the hopes of bettering their condi
tions. "Let no young man leave Missouri
to improve his condition." says the
doctor. "Here are his friends and
loved ones. Here are opportunities,
if he chooses to be a farmer, greater
than he will find anywhere on earth.
Here are the most beautiful women
who make the loveliest wives, because
they are intelligent and practical.
"For mv part I can not see why
any man should leave Missouri to bet
ter his conditions. Especially, I do
not see why he should go to the j
.Northwest, to California, or to Texas
for farming. A trip last summer
through the Northwest and California. ,
and back through the Panhandle of ,
Texas, convinces me that the Creator j
has especially favored Missouri. I do
not see way anyone snoum pass
through Missouri looking for a home.
