pointing out that on the dry lands

successful type of agriculture.
"The most feasible program for
this area," he says, "appears to be
along the lines of cheaper produc

reduction of cash costs, better as

more work toward cheap water
transportation, and equitable dis

Ben Franklin once said: "If you
would know the value of money, go
out and try to borrow some."
Didn't Ben say a real mouthful
there? Ever tried it? Strange, but
the value of money to you increases
when you haven't any. May we of
fer one little word of advice? SAVE
a little from your earnings. Deposit
in a good, reliable Bank like ours. It
will establish your credit. Possibly
then you may not even have to bor
row. Think it over.
