SECRETARY ARNOLD VISITS IROINNSIffl.ll REERESENTING TEXAS COMMER CIAL SECRETARIES AND BUS! NESS MEN. * To Confer with Local Chamber ol Commerce Concerning Develop ment of Texas Industrial Interests —Greatly Surprised at Growth of Valley. •T. A. Arnold of Ft. Worth, secre tary of the Texas Commercial Secre taries and Business Men's Associa » tion. and B. F. Johnson, secretary of the Kingville Commorcial Club, are visitors in Brownsville. Those gentlemen are here for the purpose of meeting President J. B. Scott, and Secretary I,. A. Whitney, of the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce, and discussing with them commercial club work in general. The Brownsville organization is a member of the Texas Association, but an effort will be made to obtain in dividual memberships in this city to the Commercial Secretaries’ Associa tion. The association is supported hv business and profesionai men and I the commercial organization of the * Jk state according to Mr. Arnold, and it expends some $f.0,000 arnnnllv in furthering its purposes: namely, in extendi; (rr the commercial and manufacturing interests of the r>n itire state of Texas. Development in formation and news Is furnished* to more than 1000 papers, and he as sociation in many other ways dis seminates information concerning the upgrowth of this state. This is Mr. Arnold's first visit to this part of Texas and though he I probably the best posted man on Texas in the United States or any * where else, he was greatly surpris ed to find the growing and ran idly i building country that he finds here, j He had read much concerning the Lower Rio Grande Valley, but what lte has already seen convinces him that this is really the “Garden Spot of the World.” The Valley is certain to reap much benefit as a result of Mr. Arnold's trip from the fart that the Commer cial Secretaries' Association does not confine itself to any particular part of Texas, but is a booster for every acre of land in the commonwealth. Messrs. Arnold and Johnson will remain in Brownsville over Sunday.
