TwIceaWeek Hetflat4 VOL. XXI.- AMARILLO, TEXAS, TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1906 NO. 49 11 JlilVi THE CIVIC CLUB Enthusiastic Meeting: Held and Steps Taken for Organl zatlon. Elected Member Of Associated. The city of Atnarillo bids fair to make some wonderful strides along the lines of civic improvement in the near future, and which will add more lustre to her crown and place her still higher in the column of beautiful cities of Texas. With the unsurpassed natural advantages which are enjoyed, together with the wide streets, all that is neces sary to place her in that enviable position is a concert of action on the part of her enterprising citizenship. The ladies usually take the initia tive in such matters, and will prove to be no exception here, for they are fast awakening to the needs, and immediate ones at that, for parks, flower gardens, pretty yards, streets, and the many other things that are being enjoyed by the mod em city. Knowing well the needs in that line, and desiring to enlist the sup port of the people at the earliest time, Mayor Will A. Miller issued a call for a meeting of all the ladies to be held at the court house yes terday afternoon at four o'clock, for the purpose of discussiug the mat ter, and if advisable, to organize a civic club. Promptly at the appointed hour, in pursuance to that call, a large number of ladies gathered in the district court room, a number of gentlemen also being present. May or Miller presided, and after stating the object of the meeting called on Captain Kindred for an exiression. Mr. Kindred responded in a lengthy and zealous appeal to the citizens of Amarillo in general, and the la dies in particular, to take hold of this matteV at one in an effort to have better streets, sidewalks, have pretty yards and get a park, as well as other things of a civic nature that are needed by progressive Am arillo. The Captain's address re ceived the closest attention and met with many expressions of appreci ation. Mayor Miller, in behalf of the city as well as individually, pledged support to the movement, and bespoke himself as being in fa vor of a Civic club to promote this work. Many of the ladies made talks in' regard to the movement, and all who did so expressed them selves as being enthusiastically in favor of an organization. At the suggestion of the Mayor, the meeting was then turned over to the ladies, but on invitation of the latter the gentlemen remained and continued to take an active part. Mrs. J. L. Smith was elected chairman' and Mrs. Bennett Hatch er was chosen as secretary. The matter of organizing a club at once was discussed thoroughly, but on account of desiring a larger at tendance when such was perfected, it was unanimously decided to have onother meeting Saturday afternoon at which time the "Ama rillo Civic League" will be perma nently organized. It is the intent ion of the ladies who were present yesterday to enlist the support of of every person in the city in this work in the hopes of accomplishing much in the way of civic improve ments. The Federated Club, the Com mercial Club and the City Council will be asked to lend their co-operation, which no doubt will be done, thus bringing together the entire people for that cause. The meet ing last evening was a splendid one in every respect and the beginning made will ere many days result in the launching of a great improve; ment campaign in the city.

"It has been a remarkably good season." said Mr. Kerrick. "That part of the Panhandle country has been j undergoing changes during the paiti few( years, and is now quite a farm ing district. Everything in the for age line is now raised there, such as cane, Kaffir corn and millet. These crops are especially good this year, and will make good yields. Oats are raised there quite extens ively, and as there is a large acre age, there will be a big supply of it. The wheat and corn are also good, the corn being the smallest in acre age, however, of any of the crops raised there. The pastures are in the best condition, and cattle are all doing well."
