' J The Cifien has been telling the propio of Cimarron that because , their ti'.'irn has lost only three games unnng the season, tney must not withdraw their support, and that if they will give a loosing team the ame support that they would give a winning aggregation, Cimarron will he heard from before the season i- fiVlf. That this prediction seems to about to come true, is evidenced by the re- Mr. '. Wietzer. of the Anuri.-au 1'iet Sugar Refining company, of Rocky Tord. Colo., was in Cimarron last week looking into the possibili ties of growing sugar beets on the lands surrauiidiiig Ci.marron. While here. Mr. Wietzer visited the site of the proposed dam at Kagle's Nest,. which will dam up the Mareno Valley and make it possible to irrígale thous ands 01" acres of now unirrigated land. Mr. Wiefer states that while there are reservoir sites in the United Slates that will hold more water, still lie has 111 vi ,' seen one that will hold 10 initeh water at such a small ex pense." He states that there is no doubt but that this country will be a great sugar beet producer as soon as we ret the farmers in here and get fi'iiugs started. In fact he can get things started. In fact he can see no reason why Cimarron and vicinity will not in lime be as well known as Rocky I'oid. Colo., and Garden City, Kansas, as a sugar beet raising com munity. Taking it all in all. Mr. Wriucr was greatly impressed with the possibilities of the Cimarron Val ley, and not only in he sugar bee! une, nut m a general agricultural line as well, with or without water other than the normal rain fall. Coming as Installation of Local Alasonic Lodge Takes Place Saturday There will be big events happening among the Masons of Cimarron next Saturday evening at their . lodge rooms in the Matkin building. Cim arron has about a dozen Masons, who have gotten together and applied for a charter. A temporary dispensation has been granted, the members have iiccti perfecting themselves in the rites and ritual of the order, a hall has been rented, and next Saturday evening, the Cimarron Lodge U. D.. will be installed. The local Masons are expecting quite a large number 0 visiting Masons from Las Vegas, Ra ton, Dawson and possibly Tticumcari, to be present at the installation and to help in the work. After the instal lation, which will be conducted by the District Deputy from Las Vegas, a big baiKpiet will be tendered the vis itors, and arrangements are being made by the Rocky Mountain Xcws Service to accomodate at least seventy-five people at the table. Saturday promises to be a big day tor the- local Masons, and every prep aration possible is being made for the comfort and pleasure of the visi tors The local Masons who will compose the Cimarron Lodge U. D., ire: M. G. Pence, J. W. Records, Victor r.rackclt, E. H. Fisher. O. V. Mat'.-ins, S. K. Pelphrey. F. W. iniols, J. H. Chesworth, C. IÍ. Coul ter, . J.

DANCE ENJOYABLE WALK OVER THE PARK Careless People Walk And Drive Over City Park TAMMANY COMES WITH 650 BRAVES Xew York. May to Tammany hall will be represented at the Democratic C.M.A. Dance At Aztec Hall Last Saturday Big Success Last Saturday evening at the Aztec Hall, the C. M. A. boys of the Star Lodge gave one of the best attended and most enjoyable that has been held for a long time in Cimarron. A few weeks ago a party of Cimarron young people drove to Elizabethtown to attend a dance that was being held there in their honor, and a return game to be played by the Elizabctli townites on the polished floors of a Cimarron dance hall was scheduled for last Saturday evening. Our neigh bors came down in force and Cimar ron turned out in full force to wel come them at the dance. From early in the evening to early in the morning, the dancers flitted hither and yon, back and forth in smooth gliding circles to the entranc ing music of dreamy waltz or pulse quickening two step. Merry maids, manly men and magnificent music. made many moonlit hours pass swift !v by. Taking it all in all, the C. M. A. -dance given in honor of the Eliza-' bethtown visitors, was one of the best and most enjoyable dances ever held in Cimarorn. i , .A few careless and thoughtless peo ple have made it a practice to cither walk across the new sown grass seed in the city park, t worse still, to drive onto the cultivated land with a team. The whole park has been care fully cultivated and sown with blue grass seen in the endeavor to ..make the park a thing of beauty., A fence has not as yet been built around the park, nor have the walks been con structed, because of the present lack of funds to carry the scheme, through a completion, hut a good start in mak ing the park a thing of beauty has been made Hut with careless or don't-give-a-rap people walking and driving over the grass seed, it will be almost impossible to do .what has been planned. The walks and fence will be built within afew days, and then there can be no possible excuse for such actions.- There is no excuse now, and . everyone should take enough interest in the project to at least do nothing that will retard or. injure the work that is being and has already been done. It is a shame that the Citizen is forced to call this matter to the attention of the public. But these actions arc not done by the general public of Cimarron, but by a. few individuals of a type that is but a waste of words to attempt to name.
