Sale, October 6, will be taken on a
1-day tour (Oct. 4) of Highland section ranches and on another tour
lasting only one-half day (Oct. 5).
That was the decision Saturday
when Highland Hereford Breeders
Association met for a discussion of
fall plans of the organization.
Espy Miller, Valentine, was named
chairman of a group to handle arrangements for the tours. Assisting
him will be those of the group which
went to the Corn Belt recently.
Those who are busy handling cattle
for the Fair will be excused. Jack
Kelly, Jr., will be responsible for
the securing of cars for the tours.
A noon barbecue will be served the
tour visitors the first day only.

Marfa property owners this week

board of trustees, Marfa Independent

election for the voting of $50,000 in

It was suggested that the organization's finance'committee forward
checks to the National Meat Board
and the National Livestock Association for money that is due, according
to the per animal assessment for
work of the two groups.
The
Association estimates that
30,000 calves will be branded by
members this year. The organization's $3,000 budget is based on a 13cents-calf assessment, with two cents

The bond issue voted in 1938 was
to provide the district's share of the
cost of a building1 program to be
made possible with the aid of the
Public Works Administration, which
was to supply the remainder of the
money needed. Use of the bond issue

LOCAL BOYS RODEO
FEATURE OF 1939 FAIR
"To create such a show so ridiculous that the Highland Fair may
be able to increase its gate rere ipts Saturday, October 7. . ."
That simply avowed purpose
likely will result in more heartty laughs for people of this section than they have enjoyed for
many, many months. It is contained in the explanatory material of an agreement by thirtynine Marfa men that they will
take part in a Local Boys Rodeo
at the fairgrounds the last day
of the Highland Fair.
Pitted against each other in a
roping contest will be a haberdasher and a commercial organization secretary. A hotel operator who isn't so tall has been
challenged to a contest of skill
by a well known ranchman.
The list of those who will
provide the amusement for themselve and spectators is truly a
cross-section of Marfa business
and professional life.
There'll be much fun in store

the reputation of being an accurate timekeeper,

Goyo, however, does not blow

On such occasion* he sulks, but

Selling of Lots for
Residences Under Way Here
An owner of Marfa residential
property since 1905, H. E. Middleton
recently began a sales campaign offering building lots in "East Heights
Extension No. 1," lying north of the
northwest part of East Heights, east
of the arroyo and extending toward
what is known as Laurel Hill.
Mr. Middleton retained the property when he sold other property he
owned in the same neighborhood in
1937. A citizen of Phoenix, Ariz.,
Mr. Middleton says that he expects
to spend as much time in Marfa as
necessary to handle the selling of
the lots.
Miss Georgia Means, daughter of
Mrs. Goldie Means, left yesterday for
Dallas, where she will enter Baylor
University School of Nursing. Miss
Means was a member of the 1939 graduating class of

tection work in the Presidio Valley unless some relief agency
may be called upon to take over
the work.
That is the opinion of Sumner
Welles, acting secretary, Department of State, Washington, in a
recent letter to R. E. Thomason,
Representative in Congress.
Mr. Welles refers to a letter
from Boundary Commissioner Lawson, El Paso, telling of the study
being made of measures needed
for control of flood waters which
may affect 300 to 400 families.
Mr. Lawson suggested that the
work be done as a Projects Administration effort, supervised
by the
Boundary Commission.
Inasmuch aa this is not possibleat this , time, in Mr. Lawaon'a opinion,, it is proposed tka,t appropriations be sought for the
construction w r k that is so
badly needed.
It was suggested by Mr. Wefyes
that some relief agency might be
interested in the project even
though the study by the Boundary Commission has not been
completed.
