Two-Bit Gratitude A recent editorial in the Land er (Wyo. ) State Journal is so pertinent as to be worthy of re production. Under the heading "Two-l!it (iratitude" the Journ al editor says: "In this enlightened age pub licity is the greatest progressive force, and the individual or com munity that negltcts to employ it loses thereby. The news papers want the town to grow and prosper that they may pros per along with all other citizens, while they should in all reason expect to make a small profit on , all work turned out and they have never asked even that when the good of the town has been sought. The average weekly newspap r gives gratis for the good of the public from 10 to.() per weoi-. or from .." ki 1.' n !'or vear. What other business man gives as much every year for the community in which he lives? The casual reader does not appreciate the fact that it costs so much nmney to set ev ery line of type in the paperand that the editor who pays his printers is giving just so much money to the schools, the churches, societ ies and associations every time he prints a free reading notice for them. T you suppose that any other business house would give the price of a sack of flour or sugar, a pair of shoes or a suit of clothes to every organiza tion in the county every week? i Of course not: they would not k asked to do so even if they : were generous enough to do it. Newspaper men do it because it! has been the custom to do it ard , Urause they are public spirited ; and want to help along every ' worthy cause to a greater ex tent than they are financially able.

Room S: Lubbock State L'ank building. - -lit N'o truer sentence will Ik? found in contemporaneous history than the declaration of the excutive committee of the Farmers' Union that "diversification is the means by w hich thousands of our people have been freed from the thrall dom of the mortgage and credit system, and have thus enabled to market their cotton and cotton seed at such times and in such manner as would procure for them the highest prices instead of leing coerced by their cred itors into offering their crops for sale upon an already glutted market." The evolution of the diversification idea lacks a great deal f being completed: there would not le much hazard in saying that even after ten or twelve years of propaganda work by means of many agencies diversification 13 being practied only about half as much as it can be. VV ith thousand the old one crop habit has not beeK broken, and even most of those Mho have thrown it off have gone'Vyibout divesification in that timioi or grudging way which shows ;it they are still not wholly emaiix ciiated from the old prejudice. - x I 'alias News.

The striking thir.g. tSe r cpirii g thinr, aU.ut o ;r s.tuaMon i that here in America, and esj-ecially in the free and roourcef i;l at mosphere of t he frontier com munities, the fih t against ex ploitation and the conscious adoption of p!icy of conserva tion come at the same moment, mn.e a two asjM-cts of a Single issue. These are the two great streams of history which here and now unite. This is the stir ring moment in the history of civilization, when we see no longer a few weak slaves, or a CoT,'Uercd pet. pie MriigK'l.r.g .:i v a;1! against exploitation. but rather the intelligent and domi nant citizenship arising as a giant in hi wrath, let us sav rather as a strong man in good humored ronsciouness of his w ords P i ph -.. a! resources. We have detcrmif e., not only in the interests of j-ostcritv. but m our own and our ( h;i. iron's interests, to put an end to exploitation of forests, soils, mineral ores and natural power, and to work out jMiiicies of const rx at ion. This social control of natural physical resources we rightly d"om to be essentutl to our dignity as a State, to o ir physical and moral well -being, demanded by justice dictated by sound public econo , mv. ar.d warranted by the .!iti-' cal institutions, the Constitution ; and laws under which we live. We s ;tfer for the sirs of omis sion of our fathers in this re spect and for our o.vn sins, lut our t eglect i riot irreparable, and we have announced. as clearly as party platforms and i statutes enacted or landing, and1 instead of exploited. as they mus. how much more must the ImmJics and the lives of our peo ple no longer U- exploited, but conserved. The most important part of conservation. merely from the standiint of dollars and cents, is but the preservation and development of strong, heal thy txxlies, a decent, dignified status for wor kingmon, and a hojeful outlook into the uncer tain, but friendly future. l!ut we must not speak from the standpoint of dollars and cents save as they gymitolize real wealth, genuine welfare, sultttantial prosix-rity. of which the test is life and not jiroperty.
