Ramsay MacDonald, Britain's premier. THE present week might well be said to be one of anticipation in the Valley. If information from Washington pans out, Brownsville's and Point Isabels deep-water port bill should start on its ride through congress. It is thought the bill will also carry a feature of great interest to Harlingen. This is a recommenda tion for a survey of the arroyo pro ject there. Meanwhile, McAllen is busy selling stock for p big new hotel. Building in general over the Valley is showing a decided increase This, added to a leap of over four i million dollars in bank deposits, and " ’hat scattered mostly among truck growers, finds Valley business on the upgrade move. If a man lives in the Vhlley and remains a pessi mist, Joys lor him in heaven could be doubted, did not the Word state otherwise. • • • Tr~RE is only one loss felt at the lower end of the Rio Grande at this time of year. i r OIIU - i.ie uyu-.u-iHu spread its fertile lands place on our tables makes us wonder where that winter appetite has wandered to. But that really hurts only the man who works for his board. • » * THERE is one thing about dream ing in the Valley. The batting average of dreama coming true ranks about the highest of anywhere in the United States. And one can name two hundred men in its expanse of eighty miles in length, who do not dr«am of smal ltti.se hits in this business game of keeping the ball arolllng. They dream of three-base clouts and home runs. Maybe that is the secret of it.; Those who have played the great na tional game of baseball know full well that when one steps up to the plate with the feeling permeat ing his whole being that he is going to dry-crack that ole apple. It us 1 ually takes only a few deliveries ^ from tthe pitchers box before a >9 mighty smash of wood on horsehlde ' is heard. • • • £LONG with our development we fk are also taking notice of the ** finer arts. School children all uo and down the stretch have been busy with declam- j" a lions, and Har lingen has gone in strong lor music. Two or three splendid artists have been brought to the Valley, and it is sakl that , more are in store, j One of t hese is I May Peterson, so-' prano of the Old Gray Mare fame, and another is the Xlpica orchestra. This latter is to ne nearo wsi jail. It is the great orchestra of Mex ico. Three times the engineer o! xtxis column has heard it. and when Jt comes again he will be one of the first in his seat. It is different, and pends a trickle of elation over every hearer during its entire program. • • * SINCE those skirts started getting longer one is prone to wonder if the trans-river border lift might reach something like tnis. • • • Brownsville is getting quite a reputation in Mexico lor golf matches. A visit has been made i to Monterrey, and a return visit K from the country club there is ex M/pccted at an early date. Now comes an invitation from Tampico, wnlcb will probably be accepted. Browns ville travels to the matches by air plane. Tampico and Monterrey arc great i golf rivals. They play each oth« I with sporting blood in their eyes In fact, so keen is the rivalry, that since Monterrey took the Browns ville meeting, shooters of the city tn the mountains will probably be 1 puhing for Brownsville to beat Tam pjco - - to increase Monterrey’s prestige in the world of the masiue . ena putter.

Potatoes Rushing Market Third Warning Issued by Growers Association As Cars Come 50 Per Day ! ‘ Farmers in the Valley will deliberately rob themselves of more than ! $50,000 next week unless they heed the twice repeated warning issued , by agricultural experts and dig only enough potatoes to fill the ship . per's orders,” f. b. Latham, manager of the Rio Grande Potato Grow ‘ ers’ association, announced late Saturday night. • Potatoes have been shipped at the rate of 50 cars a day for the past , week, and a fair price of 3 1-2 cents per hundred weight has been re ceived. This averaees $3 75 ner sack with 250 sacks ner car. or $837.50. SPEEDS MAIL ' Postal Supervisor Plans Time Elimination i _ Plans for cutting the time for air mail between Mexico City and poinst in the United States were announced here by Sam Gaines, postal supervisor of the Southern District, which includes Texas and three other states, with headquar ters at Fort Worth. Mr. Gaines was here Saturday, and left by plane for Mexico City, to discuss his plans with officials j there. The postal official said that the I principal trouble at the present time is that some of the mail is I delayed in handling until it misses I the planes. This delay, he said, is caused by the method of handling, failure to put letters for certain sections j into one group, etc., so that it takes longer to handle the mail. Regis tered letters were mentioned in particular, Mr. Gaines stating that frequently it will take two hours to handle registered mail that should have been handled In twenty min i utes. and that the planes are miss ad as a result. If the supply during the coming week does not exceed 45 or 50 cars per day, the price a ill be maintain ed. acording to Mr. Latham. Pres ent indications, however, point to wards approximately 75 or 100 cars a day. Lower Price Feared “In this case, the price wil drop to around 3 cents, or to aroulyi $750 per car. The inevitable loss is easily seen. A deci de in price of $86.50 a car. and '*00 cars moving out of the Valley, means a terrific loss that can be avoided easily if farmers accept the advice of the experts,” he explained. The growers are urged to dig only enough potatoes to ripply the de mand of the recognized shippers, and a steady price wil continue to be received, with a decided increase later in the season. “The continued col:! weather in the north has a tendency to cut the demand for potatoes, for it has been proved by government statis tics that potatoes are eaten in larger quantities in warmer weath er. As the season progresses, and the temperature rises, the demand will necesitate a higher price for the vegetable.” Mr. Latham con tinued.

These were received Saturday from two or three persons who are favoring the project at the lower end of the Valley Letters received Friday said that it was Indicated by the rivers and harbors commit tee that the bill will be presented some time this week. Letters received Saturday were to the effect that a survey of the Washington situation leaves littk doubt that the bill would pass, and it is known that the Valle» project is in It. It is said to carry also recommendation for a survey of the Harlingen arroyo project. With such a situation the only passage danger confronting the bill seems to be what action will be taken by the president when it is laid before him.

Go Slow Passing Schools Rio Grande Talley Trust Ca—Adv. Tucker expresing himself as being strongly In favor of such a ate pc Mr. Celaya, Brownsville, said it il needed, even at a cost of $150,000, "The committee finds that there are certain drilling companies in Texas, which will sink artesian wells on a gurantee of producing water, or no charges made foe their services." Mr. Tucker said, “and 1 think that the terms the city should follow to obtain a new source o4 supply.” Early Action In Store Mr. Celaya said he would call 4 meeting of the committee at an early date, when letters would be addressed, both with reference to 4 water survey for the city, and ♦« obtain terms on which an agree ment might be reached. City Manager Z. A. Rosenthal was asked for his opinion on the idea. He said that while he did not know that such a committee had been appointed that lta findings 1 might be of great value to the city. He favored the idea of an under ground water supply source. The city at present has a filtra tion plant, which is adequately serving, but the Idea advanced by the chamber committee is that of building against the future and to obtain water from a source which would not require so much work ; and treatment in order to furnish it pure. The pre:ent city water source is the Rio Grande. With the general growth of tha city considered, civic workers are looking forward to caring for any influx of people by reason of the port, the Point Isabel causeway, or other activities. The Brownsville commission ti planing a survey of sewer condition! at an early date, this with par ticular reference to extensions.
