Completion of negotiations whereby
Starr county's oil production was
sold through the Lob Olmos Pipe
line company to the Sinclair Refin
ing company of Houston has result
ed In a decision to drill practically
all properties owned by the Los Ol
mos Oil & Gas company as rapidly
as possible.
f ive Cars Shipped
Simultaneously with the shipment
of the first five cars of Starr crude
to the Sinclair refinery at Houston
Friday waa the announcement that
the Los Olmos had signed contracts
for drilling 15 new shallow wells m
the North Los Olmos shallow pool,
12 miles north of Rio Grande City.
It was learned that Sinclair pur
chased the Starr crude because of
its high octane content, necessary
in the production oi anti-knock
qualities of gasoline. Laboratory
analyses have shown the crude does
not require pre-treatment before
running into the stills and that 't
will crack up to 72 per cent gasoline
with 90 per cent benzol equivalent.
The sale*, contract calls for a mini
mum of 500 barrels and a maximum
of 1,000 barrels daily from the field.

Pioneers Of City
Whose Work Built
Valley Recalled
(EDITORS NOTE: The follow
ing article, Inspired by the mem
ory of Frank Rabb, was written
by H. Worth Jones, deputy city
clerk of El Paso, who is the son of
Mrs. W. R. Jones of Brownsville,
county school superintendent.
Mr. Jones reminisces of
Brownsville pioneers.
Frank Rabb is no more.
Jovial, hearty, ruddy-faced Frank
Rabb. Stalwart democrat, far-vision
ed citizen, loyal Brownsville build
er and Valley worker. Loved by his
friends and hated by his enemies—
the quality in a man that makes a
How the years are passing, and
with the years, the men who have
worked, fought and bled for Browns
ville. Men who created and kept
alive the old Brownsville spirit of
years ago. Men whose achievements
were not confined to Brownsville
and Cameron County, but whose in
fluence and vision was felt through
out the state, even the nation.
Frank Rabb was one of the last
of the old clan. His passing brings
memories of others who are great in
Brownsville's history—whose names
1 stand out as an inspiration to their
sons, and to Brownsville.
E. C. Forto
There was E. C. Forto — “Don
Emilio,” as he was affectionately
termed by both Americans and
Mexicans. Fine, artistocratic old gen
tleman whose name for years was
linked with Brownsville's growth
even back to the days when steam
ships plied the Rio Grande. He was
general manager of the old Browns
ville Ferry. His heart was soft as
his voice was hard. Never a down
and-outer wf‘, to Don Emilio for
help but w ho received it.
Then there was Judge James B.
Wells. Hard-boiled, good-souled
"James B,” whose political influence
was firmly recognized as far away
as Washington. His son, Joe. still
carries on. Perhaps his name is not
as well known, but all who have
known joe these last 25 years know
that he has mr.ny of the fine traits
of his father—and his mother. Mrs.
Wells, who died only a few years
ago. was an outstanding character
in her own right, and great was her
ambition for Brownsville. Many a
young man got his start in life
through the goodness and kindness
of James B. Wells, the lawyer.
Others received their early politi
cal training which led to high goals
through the teachings of James B.
Wells, the r >iitican.
I take pride m the achievements,
the influence, the fine qualities and
wholesome character of my own
father, tlie late Judge w. R. “BiU"
Jones. I have seen the humble and
the great come to my father for
his advice, his help, his influence,
and never did I se*> him turn down
a worthy cause. There never lived
a more stalwart democrat. His
friends loved ilm almost to a point
of worship. His er.mies hated him.
yet, who among them was there who
did not respect and fear him? The
latter were the qualities that make
a man a MAN.
James A. Graham
Judge James A. Graham—little
in statue, big in brains and ac
complishments. was another who
has passed into the Great Beyond
in recent years. Resourceful, cour
ageous, courteous—a lawyer of the
old school, a gentleman of the Old
South. Aggressive and foyeful, he
was loved and respected by the bar
throughout the otate. He was once
on the Supreme Court of Texas.

Judge J. C. George was another
outstanding member of the old

(Special to The Herald)
SAN BENITO, Oct. g.—There will
be no federal loans available to Val
ley farmers for the planting of fall
and winter crops.
Word to this effect has been
brought back to San Benito by J.
A. Hollingsworth, director of the
Houston branch of the Agricultural
Credit corporation, who presented
the case of the Valley in person to
the board of directors at Houston.
Hope for Spring Loans
Hope that the Valley would be in
line for loans for spring crops was
held out by Hollingsworth, who stat
ed, however, that authority to make
such loans would have to come from
During the summer months the
Valley made a plea lor fall seed
loans, pointing out to the secretary
of agriculture and to officials of the
Reconstruction Finance corpora
tion and others that such loans
were badly m. 'ded and that the veto
of the relief bill passed by the last
congress by Pres. Hoover left this
section without the same means of
federal relief which was applied to
other sections.
In vetoing the bill, the president
stated that in his opinion it pro
vided a duplication of legislation
and that the department of agrcul
ture already had the power to au
thorize the making of the fall seed
Direct appeals from Valley cham
bers of commerce and Interested
Valley citizens were made to Sec.
Hyde of the department of agricul
ture, but his ruling was not changed.
Promises Futile
All correspondence between the
Valley and these in authority re
sulted in the Valley interests being
told that relief would be afforded
to this section through the workings
of the Agricultural Credit corpora
tion, a hope which has proven futile
in the light of recent developments
The only loans which the Agricul
tural Credit body is now authorized
to make, according to Mr. Hollings
worth, are loans to farmers having
a surplus of feed crops to enable
them to buy feeder cattle for the
disposition of their feed.
Loans are not available to enable
farmers to buy dairy cattle, accord
ing to Mr. Hollingsworth.
The efforts of this section to se
cure fall crop loans have not been
abandoned entirely, even In the face
of information Just received to
the effect that the loan blanks
sent out from Washington to
branches of the Reconstruction
Finance Corporation in Texas pro
vide only for cattle loans, accord
ing to G. C. Richardson, manager
of the Brownsville Chamber 01
Mr. Richardson received letters
from Ben S. Smith, manager of
the agricultural credit division at
Houston, and A. E. 'Thomas of the
Fort Worth office, stating that no
provision has been made for loans
for crops in the Valley, as request
In his communication sent these
men in reply, the local chamber of
commerce official stated “the re
ent heavy rains in the Valley have
put an excellent seasoning in the
soil which would mean bumpei
crops, but the Irony of it is that
thousands of our farmers do not
have money to buy seed.
“We earnestly implore you to do
everything in your power to in
duce the directors to make crop
loans in the Valley.
“Won’t you please give this mat
ter your serious consideration, ana
see if something can be done."
Rabbit It Found
With Horn On Head
PORT ISABEL, Oct. J.—tfV- It
once vu said that everything In
Texas had horns.
While this is no longer generally
believed there was almost a revival
of the belief when Dr. J. A. Hock
aday killed a young cotton tail
rabbit with what appeared to be a
horn growing out of the top of Its
Dr. Hockaday preserved the head
of the rabbit. The '“horn," a bony
growth, projects five eights of an
inch above the head."

In offering this production to
Brownsville. Mr. Fanning and the
Veterans of Foreign Wars are ask
ing the public's full cooperation
and support.

The baiting of bearing citrus
trees in the Lower Rio Grande
Valley as an addition precaution
against infestations of Valley fruit
by the Mexican fruit fly has been
completed according to P. A. Hoi
dale, in charge of the eradication
work in the Valley.
This spraying program, sponsor
ed by the 8tate Department of
Agriculture and made possible by
the donation of approximately 41.
035 gallons of molasses and 18.000
pounds of nicotine sulphate by the
Federal Department of Agriculture
and 385 knapsack sprayers by the
State and counties involved. Is
Just another example of the ter n
work between the industry and the
departments, according to the offi
cials in charge of the fruit fly work
Every bearing property in the VlI
ley was given at least one applica
tion of the bait and practically all
were given two applications. A
number of the lsolatsd develop
ments where the trees are just
coming into bearing were given
only one application in view of the
small likelihood of an Infestation
becoming established. A total of
3.645,034 trees were baited in the
first application and 3,255,480 in
the second.
During the first application 11,841
properties and during the second
11.644 properties were baited. A
total of 35.831 gallons of molasses
and 1.793 gallons of nicotine were
used in the two applications. A
note of warning against overcon
fidence in the effectiveness of the
spray program was sounded by the
officials, however
While 100% control of the fruit
fly was effected .i*h this bait in
the experimental work, it was
pointed out by the officials that
the bait was applied to Valley
trees by more than 5/MX) individuals.
With this number of people en
gaged in applying “he bait, it is un
doubtedly true that in some groves
the spray was not applied accord
ing to recommendations. It was
also pointed out that the effective
ness of the bait in some groves
was lessened by the heavy rams
that occurred during the applica
tion of the bait.
