Mr. Harstow is known as the "father of IrriKation in the southwest." Ho has himself put through great private Irrigniion projects at Barstow, and has been a prime mover in inducing the federal government to build the sys tems which will make fertile over 3. oiio.ooo acres of land, once a desert. It Is on these government tracts that the old Isolated farm house Is to become a thing of Hie past. The government is laying out towns every five liles, he said. "Thus no'iarm will be n'lich more than two and a half miles from a town. The farms will bo small, ten to forty acres, and the farming exten sive. Under these circumstances the farmers will live In towns of 1000 to 2,000 people, enjoying all the benefits of urban lire school, enrucnes ana so- olnl Ufa At thp cinie time thev will be within as easy reach of their farms as is the average Chlcagoan or his business.
