THE LUBBOCK AVALANCHE PiLliuhd I'vorv Tuesd.v and Frid.iy by Till: AVALANCHE PUBLISHING CO. (Incprporated) J A3. L. DOW, . Editor and General Manager Entered at the I'ostoffice at Lubbock, Teaa, for transmission thru the mail as second claw matter. Subscription Price Per Year .$2.00 COUNTRY VS TOWN. AND VICE VERSA The above line is. the situation. It ii regretable that auch is the cae and there is no sense in it being that way. When the country people and the town yap, get it out of their system that one is trying to beat the other the better it will be for all concern ed. Lubbock people cannot get along without those people in the Canyon. Acuff. Monroe, Shallowater, Ropesville, or any other of the smaller towns and the rural communities and in turn they cannot get along very well without Lubbock or some other town, so there it goes. As we have said above, there is too much of this snapping and growling around at each other. We look with too much suspicion ma the fellow from the country and vice versa. There should be a general burying of the hatchet and a closer coming together for the bet terment of the town and country. Closer co-operation it necessary for the development of the com nity, and the upbuilding of the town. When pub lic meetings are called there should not exist that indifferent, and coldness between the country man uid the man who lives in town that is so noticeable. On the 20th and 21st there is scheduled to be conducted here a short course of lectures on import ant subjects to both rural and city folks, and there should be no lines visible, but the people from the farm and ranch should come to town, and get the benefit of these lectures. They will dwell upon subjects that are of great importance to the farmers and will be very beneficial indeed to the town dweller. The people of Lubbock should co-operate gladly and liberally with the country folks in mak ing this one of the greatest community meetings that has ever been known in this country. Forget where you live for those two days and be one of the bunch. It is the hopes of those who have this ir charge that there will be a general blending of the town and country, and that the speakers will have occasion to speak to a great crowd from Joth city and town. It will do us all good, and there will be great effects which will last well into the future. JAZZ. GASOLENE AND BRIMSTONE Col. Mayfield of Houston in his weekly publi cation, says the high school boys and girls of Dallas are falling victims to the jazz dance and automo bile outing evils. Spare the car and save the child. Lubbock Avalanche. We know someihing of Billy Mayfield and his pen. He has challenged the cause of righteousness in South Texas. He speaks the truth when he says the jazz dance and the automobile is responsible for much wreck and ruin in the cities. We can ray to the credit of our smaller towns that the dance is not the predominating evil, but we can say with him that the automobile is joy riding more young people into hell than all other agencies of evil combined. The rod should be applied liberally if there is no other method of keeping boys and girls out of cars Sunday afternoons and nights. A prominent minister puts it this way: "A jitney and a few gallons of gisoline can take a couple to hell quicker than any other way." Lockney Beacon. MANY CHANGES SEEN Bi; AMERICAN The Avalanche was established at Lubbock six teen years ago by James L Dow. Big Spring, 125 miles away, was the nearest railroad station. Lub bock had only a handful of people, and the county less than a thousand. Two hand presses and three racks of type composed the one-man equ:pment of the Avalanche. Today the paper has a modern newspaper plant and a staff of fifteen persons. Lub bock has grown to be a modern city on the Gulf Pacific trunk line of the Santa Fe Railway and lines to Amarillo, Crosbyton and Seagraves. The open prairie is transformed into prosperous farms. It goes without saying that the Aval.inehe has been a powerful factor in bringing on this remarkable de velopment. "The Earth", Sant.a Fe Publication. o F.very farmer of any influence in his community should be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. Jt would do much toward filling in the breech be tween the country and the city. The firmers and stockmen are just as vitally interested in the develop ment of the country as the town people are and this is a nighty good way to develop. Pull together. o Wh-Ie you nre boosting the big league base ball teams don't lose sight of the fact that the school bill team is tuning up; and they will bring some good games here within the next few weeks. And there is that Methodist Sunday School team. They re going to wake up some of the sleepy folks around here, and they won't play on Sunday, either. We are proud of the Lubbock hotels, and all we need is more just like them or larger ones of the same kind. The present hotel facilities nre in adequate to the demands of the public, and addi tional facilities alon this line will be a great help to the growth of Lubbock. o Jealousy in business is one of the deadliest pois ons that a fellow can come in contact with. It is the most deadly for a town, and when the business people pet saturated with it. the town cannot sur vive. Rustle your own business and let the other fellow rustle his. Quitrher fighting and quarreling, and pull for Lubbock. The firm who is not able to get its shire of business vhen it comes to town, should not fall out with the fellow who can. o To wear a smile, I'd walk a mile . And then I'd walk some more. For the man worth while la the man who ran smile When the rest of the world is tore. Jhn D. Jaeobeon. When a frllow comes to America and selects his country as his home, he should resolve to abide !y the laws of th! land or not loc ate in this country. When a man has decided to come to ihi country he should throw off the mantle of other countries and be Americ an, and then there will be no trouble m finding friends, living peaceably in the commu nity in which you are. If one is going to live in a country, be loyal to that country, or go some where else. If the place where you live docs not appeal to you. leave I Be loyal to the government. Be a true blue citizen, and you will never be molested by American citizens. The great bounding West is noted for its true American citizenship. Its citi zens come nearer being all true Americans than any other section of the country, and they do not pro pose for people with disloyalty popping out of every skin pore to continually force their presence upon them. The occurrence of a few nights ago is posi tive proof of this statement, and this may just be the beginning of such acts, if these immoral para sites continue to gratify their appetites in any such way. The American-born, freedom loving, christ ian people of this fair land have just about all they are going to stand from such characters, and while the people of West Texas are for law and order, they positively will not stand for men of such rot ten ideals to continue to play themselves before the wives and daughters without being challenged. American people are loyal to their homes, and when the home is attacked, or when it is insulted, business is sure to pick up. Law first I But the home, the most sacred place in America, the foundation of the government, and the hope of the nation, must be kept safe from the besmirching influences of vile and unprincipaled hypocritical foreign-bred indi viduals who come to this fair country under the guise of sacred garments, and sneak into the com munity to ply their unrighteous unhallowed lives.

Tex as, to be exhibited at the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show, in the All-West Texas Agricul tural Exhibit is bale of Sudan Hay. In a letter lo the West Texas Chamber of Commerce from Arthur P. Duggan of Littleficld. says "in connection with .Kudan Griss, there were 45 car loads of Sudan Grass seed shipped from Littlefield during the past ye;.r. The Sudan crop netted the farmers $ll.i0 per acre last year and is one of the most profitable rops rai-ed there." This is one of the beauty spot -.f the West. A fellow does not have to depend ipon any one crop for a yield in order to have a living for himself and family. TTiIa country is nore and more going into diversification, and this is not only a by-word so far as letters are concerned, but is one of the greatest significance to the people of this wonderful country. Plant a lot of it and there will never be a famine here. For the Iuvuf mike, get a hustle on and let's have this school bond election and vote enough money to build a high school building, and three ward buildings that are so badly needed to supply the demands of the school children of the Lubbock Independent School District. We have been talk ing this thing long enough now let's get busy, and make it go. The people are rearing to vote that bond issue, and put Lubbock in position to take are of the educational questions that come before us. There is no nerd to argue the fact that wr nerd :t. Ihit is n well known fac t, and we should now buckle down to g"tting ready for the election. Cir culate these petitions. Give every fallow a chanc M i:m them, and then urge the board to order the election. That Plains Railroad proposition is opening up again, and there is going to be a meeting of com mittees from all the Plains towns who will take part in it. at Fort Worth, within the next few days, and Lubbock will be there with a good representation, and present her claim in the discussion of matters pertaining to the proposed road. Lubbock's rail road committee is composed of strong men, men who are able to cope with the best any where and they will see that Lubbock is known in the proposi tion. Of course we want the road, and we believe we will get it direct, but khould we not, and it comes on the Plains, Lubbock will be benefitted by it. and we are for the proposition any way. Bring the road to the Plains. WITH LUBBOCK BUSINF.33 MEN The I.ulitiock Autu Company, re pents the s.ile of the following curs s'nee our last .Hue: Jno. T. Smith, city, Foril Sedan; The I'lain Maga zine Company, city, Kurd Coupe. This is a hustling firm composed of young men, full of energy and good h'.isme s purifications, and are milk ing a lot of good business even in times when some other firms are complaining of "nothin doing." The frllow thut gets out and hustles his hi.sinms seldom ever has room ti euni'-la'n about dull times, and ths Lubbock Auto Oonipuny seems to be thnt kind of a firm. The Lob Te Motor Co.. local Overland dealers, have recently closed a lease with E. K. Weinenborn for ther workshop. Mr. Weisenborn will iiitUil! new and up-to-date equip ment and machinery, and will be in sha e to handlo all Overland trouble the factory way. In connection with the Farmers' .Short Course to b held in Lub bock on Monday nnd Tuesday, the 20th nnd 21st of March, the Lub Tcx. Motor Company, have thrown open their display room for the. poul try division. They cloire to see ail the farmers ami interested pojl'ry rai rr fit their hendu.-irtcnt on the above d.te. Let's get behind tNs movement and put it over in giaol style, as is us nil with Lubbock Sooner. We understand that tabernacle proposition is coming along good now, and everything is getting n readiness for a campaign for funds. Xhen the solicitors come 'round be sure to kick icv If you can't give money offer your services in bidding it. We do not know what the committee has in mind regarding the building, but we believe unir the circumstances and in the face of the present condi tions that a superintendent should be secured to oversee the job, and let every fellow who can, heir on the work. .This would cut down the expendi tures to a very mall amount, and at the same time enable a lot of folks contributing to the caus who otherwise could not give anything. ' Combining For Much preparation is being mude for the Farmers' Short C mrse and T....l ... alw.u, u-friti h U'itt hp held in I.ubbo.lc Mar. h 20-21, and Lubbock business men are hk.iui i"""" themselves real boosters for the farmers of their territory, which will result in their getting closer to gether for mutual benefi s. The man who is not willing to co-operate with his ne ghbor for the accomplishment of a sie ific thing Is a poor citizen, ann me ia-i wi there are none- of those fritters In Lubbock Is altogether en iuragtng. and we take great pride in taking notice of this general spirit that ex ists in Lubho-k. You may know right eff the reel thnt if anything that is to he put over in this town is f r the g md of the farmer, Lub bock buincs men are ging to put all they hae in it, and we are als noti in that the firmers of this rountry are taking a r a. d at "f Interest in patting any hint? thnt i for the r ind ef Lubber k over with f-and s'y'e and to the combined e(f -t of these great pe pl" the fapid progress of this r.firn of West Texas can be dire tly attribu ted without mising the mark a fra i,,n.

No town is one whit better than its people, and the same principle applies to all countries, and the men who are willing to J in forces for the making of a greater, bigger, bi-tter and more densely populated eiuntry are real men, and deserve due credit. Let the farmer boost the mer -hant let he merchant boost the farmer, snd let them both boost the country and the country will boo them all. The Farmers' Short Coure and Ponrry Show in Lubbock March 20-21, will be an example of what Lubbock husines men are doirg f.r the interest of their farmer friends, their having given morh attention to the work and will have done a great deal mere before the time is on.
