THE CLOVIS NEWS, THURSDAY, MARCH 10. 1921.
v Official Paper q Curry County EDWARD L. MANSON Editor and Publitker Entered at the postof f ice at Clovis, New Mexico, as lecond clasa matter ander the act of March 3, 1879. TEEMS OP SUBSCRIPTION One Year J2.00 8ix Month .$1.00 Foreim Advaftiiin R mnr MMtit THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION PLANT MORE SHADE TREES "More time and effoit should be given to planting shade trees and other ornamentals, says Director Garcia of the Agricultural College. Even though the growin.r of shads treea or other ornamental shrubs does not as a rule become a so'irce of direct revenue, they certainly add to the comfort and beauty of the home and school grounds, avenues, driveways and parks, and also add to the value of the surrounding property It is true that if we were always to measure the value of .shade trees in dollars and cents there is many a tree that would never be planted. It takes some care, work and money to grow a good shade tree successfully especially in some of our New Mexico localities where water is limited or very expensive, but man is a beauty loving animal and the effort is well worth while. Spring is the host time to plant shade trees, but the practice of plant ing shade trees in the spring and for getting them in summer usually re aults in cither dead or stunted speci mens the following spring. Trees are grateful plnnts and will respond and grow if given the right treatment, but one should not expect them to get along without care. Water is king In New Mexico and a reasonable amount of water is absolutely neces sary to produce a satisfactory tree. A FEW THOUGHTS ON KIWANIS. NORTH DAKOTA OBJECT LESSON The troubles of North Dakota as a result of Non-Partisnn League rule and its scheme of socializing industry, are being well aired before the public. Every public official in that state is trying to lay the blame onto his neigh bor but that doesn't remedy matter The cold facts are that radical po litical leaders have made a failure of atate management of their own pri vate business. The Non-partisan League hns sim ply run the state Into debt and left the taxpayers to foot the bill, whib its leaders have sought new fields of ex ploitation, which seem ever gre'i. Several states have been chosen as good pasture and organizers arc at work along the old line. It will remain to be seen "if one is born every minute" with the North Dakota experience fresh .1 mind. The world owes you only thnt which you go out and collect. It never pays in advance. Cleave the wood and you will find it Wring a truth from Life or Nature and you find it. Do something with the sweat of your face, the effort of your brain, or the anguish of your soul, that is beneficial or worth while, and you find it. Lead a blind man across the street and talk to him, assist the feeble in mind or body, forgive your worst enemy and make him chummy, try to understand tho mystery of all mys teries wrong doing, or defend the innocent that suffer for the acts of the guilty, and you will find it. Make yourself a positive factor, see and multiply the good in others, aryi you will find it. KIWANIS is inspiration not char ity. It is not better houses for men, but better men they will build their own houses. KIWANIS never underwrites friendship nor good will. It gives money only when it can't give someth thing better something that will make the recipient earn his money. It is not a creed yet it has noth ing in common with fear, hate, jeal ousy or greed. It is not ethics honesty is a mat ter of course. It never poses. It speaks in deeds not words. It shows the fellow that's down how to get up. It smiles as it performs an unpleasant duty. It never says, "You can't," but it sometimes says, "You ought," or "You onrht not." If KIWANIS is not self-explanatory, then go out and make a friend of your hardest competitor and let him find out that he's wrong. Take home a bunch of violets to your wife or mother, or the woman who serves you your daily bread, Give a quarter to the evening news boy for your paper und tell him it's a great world, but he musn't fluke on doing little things well. Smile "Good morning" to the ex pressman and ask him when he's go ing to build that wurchousc of his own. Welcome the newcomer and tell 1 him to use you. 1 Water a neglected flower.
