UNION WEEK OF PRAYER WHEAT GROWERS' ASSN PAYS OUT $300,000 Approximately $300,000 in checks were mailed out of Enid to members of the Oklahoma and Texas Wheat Growers' Association, according to John Manley, secretary of the Okla homa organization. Of this amount over $250,000 went to members in Oklahoma and the re mainder to Texas. This is a future payment on all wheat delivered prior to Ocbtober 1, paid on basis No. 1 at 70 cents hard and soft wheat This brings the total payment at the pres ent time to 70 cents a bushel. Addi tional payments will be made from time to time as the wheat is sold and money accumulated with which to make the payments. The years aver age will be well over the dollar mark and show the members a profit over the old method, association officials declare. "One-quarter of a million dollars released at the same time to our mem bers will naturally liven up business in the different communities. There will be no other payments, and then the final payment when the pool is closed and the season average price ascertaind" Manley stated. "The ac counting department has done this work- at no additional expense, which shows that we are practicing economy in the business of the association. This payment certainly will be a blow to our enemies it will prove to the world that the stuff they have been telling is nothing more than propa ganda." Guymon Herald.

Mathews reports this afternoon that he is still unable to prepare the tax rolls for Texas county .owing to. the conflict ing understandings of the state and county offcials. When County Judge Frittz was in Oklahoma City two weeks ago to aid in adjusting the mat ter, State Auditor Frank Carter authorized him to state that the Rock Island valuations would be reduced twelve per cent. When they were certified in laBt week, the reduction amounted to nineteen and two-tenths per cent on their valuations. The Texas county officials are protesting against any such reduction, which is contrary to their understanding and there seems to be some question about the matter in the state audit or's of fee, as a message ' from Mr. Carter received this afternoon re quests Mr. Hathews to await further instructions. The Rock Island valuation in Texas County in 1910 was $2574,450 and in 1921 $2,578 909. If the nineteen and two-tenths per cent reduction was allowed this year it would bring thier valuation down to $2,080,238 or $488212 less than in 1910 and $492, 671 less than they were last year. Sinve 1910 the vauations of Texas county farms have been incerased more than fifty per cent. It would seem that the ralroads are getting off mighty easy jrbmparatively. Guymon Herald.
