as he was much surprised at the
poverty that was" evident amorfg
many people. He says they real

means.' and one of ' his observa

he visited had not had new suits
of clothes for over 10 years, and
many women had not been able
to purchase -new dresses ' for
more than 10 years. In view ot
this condition a m-eat many peo

People in Cotton Belt of East
Texas Would Grow Rich .
in Salem District 1
John Williamson, thn Salem
contractor, who lives at 1810
North Summer street, ' has Just
returned from a trip to the east
ern part of Texts, by auto, lie
was gone a couple of months,
visiting relatives and friends in
that section, in Van Sant county,
where he "resided before coming
tn Co 1 qtti fr Willtamsnn has
fc W H ... B. . ...... .u ,
been no smalt factor in heping
to make Salem a larger city.
He erected 18 residences in Sa
lem last year. He has been a
contractor in this district 20
Mr. Williamson "says that part
of Texas is a very . backward
country. Cotton -growing ana
picking are the principal occu
pations, and owing to the rav
ages of the, boll weevil and for
other reasons the crops hare
been ery poor In the past few
years. There are men and wo
men " in . that section of Texas
who have' not had new suits'- or
dresses for ten years the sec
tion .75 to 100 miles east - 'of
the city of Dallas. There are
no roads worthy of the name
in that district.1 Mr. William
son had to store, his car- CO miles
from his old home and go in by
Fighting the Pesto
The cotton pickers .of that
section of Texas go annnally In
large numbers to the Imperial
valley cotton district in Califor
nia. They take their cotton
sacks with them; but they are
met by government inspectors
who bum their sacks and inspect
all baggage, attempting to keep
the boll weevil out- of Califor
nia. The same men inspect all
fruit, such as oranges and -lemons,
in their attempt to keep
out fruit pests. "
Would Like to Get A way
Mr. Williamson says thousands
of people in east Texas would
like to get away. But ttyey do
not know how, or where -to go.
They are almost like the . peas
ants . of old Russia, bound to
the land, which does not furnish
them with even a decent living.
There are few colored people in
that part of Texas. They are
mostly white Americans of good
stock, willing to -work hard.
Thousands pf them, if they could
get a foothold in such a land
flowing with milk and honey , as
the Salem district; would aid
wonderfully In developing the
country. They wpuld think they
had found the next door to par
adise, and they would add stead
ily to the wealth of the country
and - themselves grow Indepen
dent, and many of them rich.
Better Method .of . Purchasing
Grain Sacks and Twine -Is.
" The regular March meeting of
the Marlon County Farm bureau
was held Saturday ' afternoon at
the Chamber of Commerce rooms.
No very important business was
completed, though the- bureau
took up the matter of buying
grain sacks: and binding, twine Jn
bom, mu4 few Pi'w. V
carload 'lots' for the coming grajn
seas n. ' It was the consensus of
opinion that the- offer should be
made to take in any farmers,
whether members of the bureau or
not, and give to all the same bene
fits in price.
It had been expected that the
March meeting would have a re
port j from the state officers, cov
ering a lot of important work on
the state bureau, but this was de
layed, and is not yet ready for dis
tribution. The Marion bureau meets regu
larly the fourth Satu red y of each
month. ; Special meetings can be
called at any time, and it is ex-
