Mala. koff and Athens both have been flooded with applications f or iiving quarters, but the influx has been so great that we have been unable to take care of even a small percent of those who have Shown a preference to live up here in God's country, hence, they found it necessary to make a second choice and then they moved to the Anderson county town. The roads, as was men- tioned, had little to do with it, since the roads this way are equally as bad, if not worse, than those leading to Palestine. The big difference betwee Malakoff and Palestine is a ques- tion of miles. Most o f these workers prefer a distance of ten @ -@ Faithfully performing the duties of our profession is our greatest aim in life. We devote all our talents to the per- formance of these duties.

The as. sistance was pointed out as a move to strengthen friendly re- lations between Palestine and the new oil field area.

AND yet hundreds of people in our community are toiling, tilling--plowing without sowing. How can you expect a harvest of money in the days to come if you do not plant some of it in an account here? Ceaseless tilling of the soil without sowing seed is no more useless than endless work without saving. Malakoff, Texas E. O.
