nort and south. As a representative
of the Panhandle territory Mr. Jam-
ison advanced the idea that the G. P.
C. organization would be brought ov-
er the Texas territory into Amarillo
and projected thence to the south as
per the desire of those ' in charge of
its direction, expressing the belief
that the most expedient course would
be for the organization to avail its-
self of the existance of either Colo-
rado to Gulf orthe Gulf to Puget
Sound State Highway No. 9 in cover-
ing the distance between Amarillo
and our southern border, but with the
distinct understanding that the Pan-
handle Plains Chamber of Commerce
will labor in conjunction with this
organization either upon already es-
tablished Highways or in the estab-
lishment of a new route to the Gulf.
The meeting was then placed in
charge of Mr. Slack, who stated that
the idea of the organization was to
effect a north and south highway-
through this continent impressing up-
on those present the importance of
this meeting. He stated that the idea
to get together on suggestions, ideas
concerning the best and most feasti-
ble route that this highway should
taltP from Amarillo. He state that a
road north and south will be the only
transcontinental Highway reaching
the continent's extremities in that di-
rection. People traveling from east
to west have a well established road.
Travelers north to. south are not
favored with such a condition. Mr
Slack, talking for Texhoma, stated
that they were in the harness to get
to work and make this road a realis-
ation. Also 3tated tfiat Colorado had
a better dirt road than one could well
imagine until fee has been upon the
territory. With a practical crossing
over the Cimarron river and Beaver
creek there today exists no barrier
between Amarillo and the Canadian
At this point Mr. Slack requested
that the Constitution and by-laws of
the G. P. C. Highway be read. It was
found from the reading, of this docu-
ment that the idea was to effect an

ly elected. R. M. Fielder likewise of

urer. Both gentlemen acknowledged
the honor thus conferred with smiling
Upon being called to the chair Mr.
Simpson made a very enthusiastic
and intelligent address concerning
the duties confronting the new organ-
ization and expressed great pleasure
.in the opportunity to labor in this

IVe question of determining the
route that should be followed from
Amarillo to the Gulf was delegated
JU a committee upon consent of those
present composed of R. M. Fiedler of
T'Jia, E. O. Thompson of Amarillo
and John Boswell of Plainview. This
committee chose the following route:
Texhoma to Stratford to Dumas to
Amarillo to Corpus Christi via State
Highway Number Nine.
It was moved and seconded that
another meeting be called for this as-
sociation to meet in the City of Lub-
bock on October 4th. Genuine con
structive enthusiasm prevailed thru-
out this conference as well as the ut-
most good will and harmony. This
office predicts the full realij^tton and
confidently expects to see" immediate

listed entirely across this state.
