put everyone at his ease, was de-
livered by Miss Fern Daniels who

self and others. Now as to Ok-j
lalioma, 1 love my home country,
have been here a long time and
have done fairly well but I must
say that there is a better place
amount of land and think there
is but little farming done. In the
upper Rio Grande Valley there
are thousands of acres farmed
plenty of farmers having as much
as 100 acres, but the irrigated
land is farmed in small tracts and
the real industry is fruit raising,
various kinds of fruit doing well
theic. If.one is starting a grape
fruit orchard, it may be farmed
the first two or three years be-
tween the rows, but after that
the fruit will occupy' all of the
land and the third year you will
get more profit from one acre of
fruit thyn, J will say, fifty acres
of cotton in this section.
Resting this argument with
you, 1 remain your friend,
