With a ten day outing as the incen
tive, the boys made every effort to
qualify, and the membership of the
local Scout organization had reached t
the century mark by June 1921. Of
this number, forty-one had reached
the standing of first class scouts, and
consequently were qualified to accom
pany the tour. Including officers and
drivers the party numbered exactly
fifty. Three Reo Speed Wagons were
commissioned to carry the party, one
hjauling the baggage and camping ap
paratus and several boys, the other
two carrying only passengers.
The trip as originally planned cal
led for a tour which would take in
five states, Oklahoma, Texas, New
Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas, cover

miles. The proposed route would take
them through some of the most wild
and rugged districts of the Rocky
Mountains, at times reaching an al

RAILROAD BOOM IN WEST j
Turn to your map of Kansas and
you will note that the Atchison,'
Topeka & Santa Fe . railway runs
through Haskell County. Sublette
and Satanta are on this road and are
the only two towns in the county
that are on the railroad. . You will
readily see by tracing it, that this
road gives direct connections - with
Dodge City, Great Bend, Hutchin
son, Wichita and Kansas City, thus
reaching the main markets of the
State and the west.
In addition to this road the south
western part of Kansas is experien
cing a big railroad building boom.
The Kansas and Oklahoma is building
out of Liberal, Kansas, northwest to.
the Colorado state line, a distance of
about seventy miles. Also the same(
road is building a connection with
the Wichita Falls and Northwestern
at Forgan, Oklahoma, about SO miles :
southehast of Liberal, thus opening
the Gulf Coast markets to this coun
try. This will stimulate competition
and will result no doubt in a better.
price for our farm products.
However, more directly are we in
terested in the Santa Fe extension of
the line that' runs through this coun-j
ty. It is being built out of Satanta ,
some sixty miles, in a western direc- j
tloa toward the Colorado line. In
doing this it penetrates Grant and j
Stanton Counties, which heretofore
have had no railroad.
Work on these new lines is under
way and the steel is being laid. There
is no joker in the building of these
two roads. A vast territory-will be
opened up and this land is yet cheap,
but will not remain so very long.
With these new roads southwestern
Kansas is going to undergo another
wonderful development. This is the
'time to get some of this cheap land.

Our office employees, mechanics and sales
force are on the alert day and night to be of
service to Allis-Ghalmers owners and to see
that an owner of one of our tractors receives
the full the owner's meaning of service.
That we are rendering- the service that should be given those who pur
chase tractors, is evidenced by the fact that we are leading all other com
panies in the Liberal territory in tractor sales. That the Allis-Ghalmers has

Big .business men are always on the looVout for young men who
have the qualifications for big positions... The main thing they want
to know 1st "has he MONEY SENSE T" That question can only be
answered in one wayj by a Pass Book showing REGULAR deposits.
The routine of the business a man can be taught, but the value of
money he must learn for himself with hie own money.
If you haven't yet started to regularly deposit some of your money,
come in and open an account and start... You will be on the road to
prosperity when you do.
