WILL GO TO CLARENDON Editors Adjourn This Morning Alter Royal Entertainment at Plainelew Special to Dally Panhandle Plalnvlew, June 27. What the members pronounro ono of the most successful meetings tho association lhag ever held, was ended hero thin morning when tho North went Texan press association adjourned slno dlo. In attendance thero have bson larg er meetings but In tho Interest tak en and In the entertttlnmet furnlHhud by tho people of Tlalnvlew this con vention deserves to bo set apart at notable. Elaborate Munquct. The crowning feature of Plain view's entertainment canio last night when the editors and their families eat at the banquet with the citizens of plalnvlew and were nerved by a corps of plalnvlew ladles with a feast that reached every editor's' heart. Tho banquet was set 1n the bleating rink which had beeii trans formed by the deft hands of the la dles In preparation for the event. At the tables UiHt night were seated the editors, their wives, a number of guests, and citizens of Plalnvlew jn all to the number of 110. Judge L. S. Kinder presided at the fenst as tonstmaster nnd brought forth the speeches with the happiest introductions. Hev. Shuffler, of tho Plalnvlew News offered the invoca tion. Mayor J. R. DnLay answered "Who and What Wp are." M. W. Holconihe, of the Wise County Mos ' benger found It easy to tell "Why We Are Here." It. M. Kller. of rialnvlow, expressed In a formal way what the delegates had already found out In "How Glad We Aro to .See You." S. A. Brwesler, of the D.illy Panhandle, talked convincingly of "The Power of the Press." A. W. Johnson found something new to say about "The Pen Mightier Than the Sword.'" After the banquet Professor Baer and Mr. D. M. Henderson favored the company with a duet that won such hearty applause that Profes sor Daer responded with a solo of rare merit. In service, appointment and arrangement, the banquet was one of the finest that could have been offered anywhere. Officers Fleeted. The spssion yesterday afternoon and this morning were held In the Methodist church on account of tho arrangements for the banquet at the skating rink. AH the topics on the program were taken up for . discus lion and in cases where the mem iiers named on the program were not orosent other members were assign 1 to lead the talk. In the election of officers, A. W lohnson, of tho Hall Couniy Her .Id, was made president; John Es en Cooke, of the Clarendon Banner Stockman, vice president; Orion Proctor, of tho Bridgeport Index. was made secretary, and Byron Cole man. of the Henrietta Index, was elected treasurer. On the executive committee were placed W. A. Blake, of the Clarendon Chronicle, S. A. Brewster, of the Daily Panhandle, and George A. Brandon, of the Can yon City News. Besides the resolutions on various subjects of editorial action, a num ber of resolutions thanking the peo ple and press of plalnvlew for their manifold efforts in behalf of tho convention were adopted. Clarendon Get Next Meeting. In accordance with the unwritten law of the association, Clarendon was In line for the next meeting and the Invitation of Amarlllo, though it met with much favor from the delegates, was not accepted, but as Amarlllo had the convention two years ago, In the order of succes sion, the invitation of Clarendon was accepted and the association will meet there next June. This morning as the final feature of the entertainment the Plalnvlew people took all the visitors on an automobile ride over Plalnvlew and the fertile country surrounding the town. This afternoon all the visit ors will leave. They will carry with them the pleasantest Impression of this vicinity and its people. Busi ness men of the town have let bus ' iness go to look after the visitors and delegates were never more thorough ly mado welcome than were the rep resentatives of the association In their visit here, A BUNCH OF . HOME GAMES After a few weeks' rest, Ama rlllo fans will again have an oppor tunity to watch the guino and Man ager Horsey will start things tomor row with two games against tho Hertford team. Following Here ford, Texko and Tulla will appear In the park hero. Tomorrow Hereford will open here with a game In tne morning begin nlng ut 10 o'clock. The sr-cond gamo will bo played in tho afternoon beginning at 4 o'clock. Hereford's team has had few games this year and Is somewhat of an uncertain quantity. Saturday, Texlco plays the first of a series of three games here. The border city Is said to have a fast, aggregation but the Amarlllo team has not matched with It yet this season. Tulla will be the Fourth of July attraction hero nnd will play In all a series of threo games. Tho regular lineup will be used In the games and with game every day the fans will bo able to seo all the men work out. The difficulty In securing games has worked against the team by giving too long waits between times. The manager has a number of games with the teams of Panhandle towns on the string now and will probably havo more frequent offerings at the park. The Fillmore street church Is the latest of the Amarlllo organizations to decide to replace worn out quar ters with a handsome modern church building. LaBt night at a mass meet ing of the members ' the matter was thoroughly canvassed and the com mon sentiment of the members pres ent was that the new church waB a necessity under the circumstances nnd that no better time than the present could be found for building tho new home for the congregation. In accordance with the expressed sentiment of the meeting a reso lution was adopted favoring the erec tion of a new building and authoriz ing the appointment of a committee which should canvas all the mem bers of the congregation In regard to the proposition. K. L. Dohoney Is chairman of the preliminary com mittee which met this morning to organize their plans for a canvas. The committee will do the work as rapidly as possible and will make a report at an early date to tho con gregation. Although defenlte plans have not yet been proposed the general opln Ion favor.1 a building to cost be tween $20,000 and $25,000. This will be about tho cost of the Chris tian church which is to be built on Taylor street and Is somewhat less than that of the MethoKst and Bap tist churches on Polk street. If possible the congregation hopes to get the building plans In shape soon enough to grt the construction well under way this summer and to have the building completed by the first of next year. The building will occupy the lots on the corner of Fillmore and Sev enth streets now occupied by the frame building of the church. This Is a little over a block from the Christian ichurch will be in turn about the same distance from the Methodist and Baptist churches Thus the four handsome church buildings will be within a distance of practically two blacks.

CO. mmmmm FOR THE NEXT DIRECTORY Field Manager Discusses Growth and Present Con ditions In Amarillo, i most assuredly ran see the re-' suits of growth since we took the directory census In December," said C. 11, Staunton, field manager for the John F. Worley Directory com pany, of D.:;as, yesteruay in speaic Ing of his work In Amarillo on this . . i . . . ,,-lp. " alll here now Just to get the situation shaped up for tho mak- lug of tho next directory In Decern- Her. , . , . Our work next time in making the directory will be much easier and more satisfactory than It. was ... , he last tin..-, "ion know we had to onio In hero then and begin every- thing. Wo had absolutely nothing to start fro,,, and lots of people we went to see Just thought we were getting n uninn nil lx ml veil IhI n a craft with list of names as a side line. And . then a good many people did not un derstand Just the kind of information we wanted and consequently there are some (accuracies In the matter of listing. Well when we come back next time the proposition will be greatly simplified. In the first place peoplo know the kind of a book we are going to print and ran co-oper- te with us. Where mistakes were made last year, they will remember to correct them this year. "Of course we are going to have a considerably bigger town to count up next year than we had last but that Just suits us tho better. I lave bon going over the town In a sort of field survey fashion and I would estimate tho Increase In pop ulation since wo made the directory In December at about 100. The growth during the remaining time I should Judge will show a more rap Id rate even than that. But then you can't tell about this town. It Is the most remarkable town In that way that I have ever found nnd I have been In this directory business for a good many yp-nrs. You know I missed my guess considerably last fall because I figured this town by the samo standards we used else where. Well the difference Is that In Amarlllo ever house has more than one family. The number of houses to ihe population doesn't correspond to the rule In most places. 'The demand for houses beats anything I ever saw. I think there are about 250 houses now just com pleted or In process of construction here and you can't find ono to rent. As soon as a house Is built the fam ily is ready to move Into It and somebody else takes their place In the rooms they have been occupying. I would estimate that 250 nioro houses would find tenants as soon as they could be completed. "And it Is the same on Polk street and In the business part of town. I tried my best to get a store room for a friend to come here and It was simply out of the question. Amarlllo has need for fifteen new brick build lugs along, this street as soon as they can lie built. A one hundred and fifty room modem hotel would do capacity business from the start, "Yon are going to keep on grow ing too. Thafc Rock Island building out from here this summer will bo an .added help to the growth nnd I think there is little doubt that It will be built clear across to the other line when the work starts. was talking to some Rock , Island men at Dallas the other day and they considered It settled that the work would be completed clear through whenever It started. "From here 1 am going to Ros- well to figure on a directory there After we published this one here we had a number of inquiries from down there and we finally decided to make that town between here and HI Pa so. That will break the distance for railroad fare for the corps of di rectory mon who compile the work. Roswell may be n little bit small for n directory yet but the business men there want our kind of a book and the location of the town suits our schedule as time of making, so will put It on our list."

Ul'KFALO CALVES AT GOODNIGHT Lnrcer Number Than t'sual This Year. William Penn Anderson, the live stock agent of the Southern Kansas returned this week from a trip to Goodnight and reports that the buf- :g fnlo herd thero Is In especially good condition. This year twenty full blood buffalo calves were born In the herd. This Is the largest num ber of calves ever born In ono year In this herd since It has been In captivity and Is the largest number born In one year to any captive herd of buffalo. Buffalo are not nat urally so prolific as are cows and other domestic animals. The full calf crop this year In the Goodnight herd Is a guarantee of the continu ance of the herd and Is naturally very gratifying to Colonel Goodnight and others who are Interested In per petuating the breed. YOUTHFUL HOUSE BREAKERS REPENT Three llttlo boys about nine or ten years old with very repentant fares told a Btory of youth house breaking In Justice Holman's court yesterday afternoon that called for the exercise of a quality finer than statute law. Although their of fenses were such that In the case of older persons would have made 1 them ansernblo to serious charges, the Judge considered their youth and gave the caso over Into the hands of the hoy's parents for settlement. On several occasions in the past few months down town stores have been entered and the contents rifled of articles of small value and In a few cases of small amounts of change, in every case tne wors: showed traces of boyish miscreants but until recently the officers have been unable to fasten upon the per petrators. A few days ago Chlet Snider received Information that re sulted In the discovery of an ama teur brigand's headquarters Jn a back yard on Van Buren street. The "den" was flted up with the spoil of various expeditions and the na ture of some of the articles left lit tle doubt as to the source. I'pon further Investigation, the of ficer arrested three youngsters. Char lie Armstrong, Leslie Jones and Mc Coy. Yesterday the case of tho boys came up before Judge Holman and tho young offenders made a clean breast of their offenses. The boys had hardly realized the seriousness of their acts and when confronted with the majesty of the law they very earnestly pledged themselves to bo much more careful In the future in their "make believe" operations. 1TF.MS FItOM GLAZIER.
