Many of the county fair throughout the State have been aban doned this yrar on account of the close times and the short crop, but Lubbock never once considered skipping a year, in fact in the case of Lubbock. vhere she is putting on a fair of the general scope bf some twenty South Plains counties, there was no necessity for such, and the directors are going forward with one of the mosi giganuc promum that the South Plains has ever seen in the way of a South Plains fair, and as a result there is an out look now that seems to eclipse every former effort along this line. The management of the fair is depending upon the people of the South Plains to lelp them make it a success and every farmer and stockman, should respond to their requests for agri cultural exhibits that will do credit this great South Plains. It is even a greater achievement to show up a creditable exhibit this year than in the years where there is a fin- crop everywhere when the rains cure just right, and there could be nothing else but an abundant yield. If the South Plains exhibit shows up well ihis year in the face of the long dry spell clurin the growing season, there can be no argument against the productiveness of the country in an average season. Those of us who have enjoyed living in the splendid country for the past fifteen to twenty years, know that there is no need to be the least bit uneasy that the South Plains is going to dry up and blow away, for we know that a year as dry as this is not a common thing, and with the country better developed now than it ever was. and with our farmers diversifying, in crops, and raising chickens, pigs, sheep, etc., and producing cream and butter, that there is going to be more money made off the farms in this sec tion of the country per capita that ever before. Anyway, there is plenty of good crops in this sec tion, even in the middle of this dry spell to put the South Plains people in clover and there is enough to attract the attention of the hundreds and hun dreds of prospectors who are coming here every month, to seek out a new home. It looks good to them, and thev are familiar enonph with grow ing crops and soil to know that there is something remarkable in this country, and are anxious to come here. The 'hint! we want to impress upon the peo ple of this section is to ro operate with the fair management and let the visitors have a fair example of the products of the f irms of this section this year. A member of the committee in charge of the agricultural exhibits says he is meeting with a liberal response, both from Lubbock county i.nd many of the adjoining counties, and there is going to be a real exhibit of farm products from all over the South Plains. o Lul.bmk will soon bo known us the power house of the South Pl.iins, if everything comes to pass in the development of the Tens Utilities company, that thry have in mind at the present time. Already the plant "t this place is the best equipped and largest ill the wist, nnd the end is not yet. The plant will be ad. led to within the next few months that will make it second to none in the southwest. Since the old plant was destroyed some months ngo, the head officials of the com pany have visited this section of the State and the wonderfulness of the South Plains has been reveal ed to them, as descriptive literature and personal letters. newspaper stories unu mm unc : could. They at once grasped the vision of the greatest opportunity on earth, and have mapped out one of the greatest programs of extension in the section that was ever known in uny state The extensions to Ralls, and other places around Lub bock, to be supplied with electric lights and power. , tij iJ(lf ,.,.vt.n mnths old. from the main plant in this city -is us a drop oi ... $iiu0i ..., ;n Vaw li-t compared with what they have ti... c,lP K,, k Jersey farm in mind to do. Within the next few years the South Plains will be u network of electric wirv run ning into the plant here, and light and power will be furnished the many towns within a radius of fifty or seventy-five miles, as will as the farm and ranch homes at intermediate points. This means that Lubbock will be the power house of the Suth f'lains. The ice business of this same firm will be developed in the same proportion as the electrical equipment, and this will add still more to the won derfulness of the Lubbock territory. This firm is not the only one. either, that is doing big things in the way of developing the South Plains and Lubbock will be the central point of the greatest body of agricultural land that can be found any where.

The people of this section have done everything possible it seems to stem the tide of ab normal increase in population, but even ut that our schools are overcrowded, and the superintendent is wondering where he will put the ones who enroll L. Tk nrn!lment as reported in the Ileal iv " - , - various d'-oartn.ents last Thursday noon Uy Super intendent Dupre was: High school 336; I rmay department 333: L.rammar scnooi. oy. Ward 24: West Ward 18; Mexican school 28. This enrollment is about equivalent to the seating capacity to our schools, and still they keep com ing. People are coming to Lubbock from many other sections of the State to have their children enter our splendid schools, and something will have to be done to meet the demand. The mag nificent building to be constructed this year will easily care for the enrollment for another year, but now is the time that the problem seems biggest, and our buildings are inadequate to meet the de mand. The school, nevertheless will be a success. The various department heads realize that th-r co-operation is necessary to make the term a suc cej. and are doing everything possible to make 'the school runalong just as smoothly as it is at all pos sible. and there is no need of anyone worrying about the school problems of their children for the demand for more room will be met adequately. This is just to remind you that Lubbock is grow- ing! o RE PIT ATI ON FOR SOCIABLENESS There is just as much difference in the way people are received in the different towns as there is in the way different families receive guests in their homes. This being true, the town that makes their visitors and guests feel at home the most will be the town that will make the best impression on them. We have heard it said of Lubbock that the people here as a rule ore the kind that just simply rr.-.ke people feel at home, and makes a fellow feel I like he is welcome, and gives them a desire to live here This probably accounts for the rapid growth 'of the town. If so. we congratulate the citizenship of the community, and hope that this may ever be the reputation that we have. There is one thing, however, that we probably do not give as close at tention to as we might, and that is our tourists. Hun dreds of car loads of people come to our city every year Thev stop on our streets, and visit our s.ores and places of business. We should see to it that every bit of information is given them in a courte- ous way. and we might go runner ana oe. . . i k..n V, TTrrna them in town , more inirirsiru m mi,.. j n . It was a commendable act of the Slaton people anfl vounteering such information as miijht be helpful to them. Cive them welcome io our .own a personal touch that will always be kindly rernem bered, and it will mean a great deal to Lubbock. When a tourist's car stops in front or near your place of business, let a member of the firm make it a point to see them personally. Let Liibbork be known as the most sociable place on the highway. 1 he I up Il K jersey imiiii i one of the most complete arrange ments of buildings anywhere in Tex ami the thii.gs Mr. Guy has hail limit I hi re for the betteinietlt ol ;!.c faim prove his confidence in the 0. 1nti.v, i'nr the investment inolv- J is ggaittie.
