W'e do not want to be exacting but we must demand some things of you, if yon ex pect us to come up to the notch. MUST HAVE HELP Farmerss in the flood districts must have help to get more planting seeds, the Dallas News observes in the following editorial : '"From the staff dispatch to The News it seems that there will be no free seed from Washington for the flooded di?rticts of Texas. The committee men in charge of the matter felt that it would not be a good policy to begin the governmental distri bution of scrd. In that decision many will feel bound to concur, although they cannot e-ape senti ments of real sympathy for those who have lost their crops in the overflows. The conAtant encroach ment upon the independence of the States through the surrender by the States to the paternalistic func tioning of the National Government has laarmed many prominent men. But the place to wage the war of opposition against the encroachment is with the rcntiment within the several States and not at Washington. States have come to run after Wash ington in the effort to surrender duties. Yet there can b- no State rights without the full acknowledge ment and the full performance of State duties. "Now that the probability of assistance from Washi ngton is made remote through the actio'n of committeemen to whom the matter was referred, perhaps Texas will do what she should have done in the first place and take steps to relieve promptly and generously the distress of farmers whose lands have been invaded by flood waters. Considerable tire has already been lost time which is precious with the advance of the growing season. In another such emergency, should it arise, it is to be hoped that the first impulse will be to self-reliance and the relief of our people by their neighbors and fellow Texans. An appeal to that quarter has nevre been turned down where it was properly and seasonably made in a worthy cause. Surely this is a worthy cause." Fire Chief Clinton, of Abilene, .who held the responsible position of Chief of Police and Fire Chief for thirty-seven years, died suddenly last Wed nesday evening. Chief Clinton was probably the best known fire chief and chief of police in Texas, and has a host of friends throughout the State who will learn of his death with much regret. j I he Av.il.imhe st.uted a flt l-t week, by cur t ity editor making the mist. ike of M.itinit that ijude l o, kli.ut was from I .nines inste ul ll la Ihok.i. I he News jumped on us with both feet be !rau of this misstatement, just the same m though he does not make 'em every issue that is printed, land now the Lames Reporter is Inking a shot at jlhe News for refusing the Judge the pleasure of I being from Lamesa, if only for a few minutes even. Now boys, we do not want to cause any friction between vou. Hie editor knew that Judge Lock" hait lived at Tahoka, boosted Tahoka. helps tr build Tahoka. and all that, but you know that the Avalanche has grown to that proportion that the editor cannot read every line that goes into it be fore it is printed, and new men coming on the job of news writing causes these kind of errors, and they are not made with any ill intentions, but are merely innocent mistakes. However, cut out the quibbling over the judge and keep on building new brick business houses like you both are do ing. The Judge will take rare of himself at any time and under any conditions. Keep building. o The Lamesa Reporter is rather inclined to make light of the statement in the Avalanche that four new brick buildings were under consrtuction in Lub bock. That was true nt the time, but Brother Smith, you must remember that that report was made two weeks ago. Since that time contracts have been let for four or five more business buildings, and within that length of time there is no telling how many will be contracted. We are glad to know that Lamesa is building, however, and we admire the way the Re porter editor is keeping in touch with the building activities of his town, but he must remember that Lubbock is not just an ordinary city, that her popu lation is oVer six thousand people, and all are boost ers with the exeception of possibly a half a dozen. and we believe that they will be converted soon. A dozen big firms are contemplating coming to Lub bock soon that will require fifty foot front buildings, and our people will build these buildings for them any time they will put their names on the dotted line of a lease contract. For further information see the editor of the Avalanche. We do not charge aj cent for the information we give, and we venture we can put you in touch with a fellow in thirty minutes that will put up a bric k building any size and shape you want. Your move next, Mr. Business Man who' wants to come to Lubbock I . ROTARY NOIT.1 The grand stand and several thousand dollars' worth of automobiles and grand stand equipment was destroyed by fire at Wichita F alls last Friday, during the progress of a very exciting game of base ball between the local league team and Shrevesport The fire is said to have been started from a cigarette, which ignited a cushion. Three men were injured in the excitement to get out of the way of the fire. Cigarettes are not only killing thousands of boys and destroying the womanhood of the country, but as a side swipe, destroys several million dollars' worth of property in the United States every year. o It takes Uncle Sam a long time to get around to matters, even of much importance. This week the announcement was made that Free City Delivery would be given Plainview on September 1st. Plain view commenced work on this proposition about four years ago. and just now getting the proposition in announceable shape. Lubbock began about two years ago definite arrangements fo this service, and much work has already been done on it, but we may be several months from it yet. We should keep closely in after those fellows at Washington afld make 'em come across. Lubbock is entitled to this service, and we want it. Somebody, we hope will speed Washington up a bit. I!) I..
