Date Set for S. W. Water Works Convention
In a circular letter issued by Secretary R. D. Morgan of the Southwest Water Works Association, Box 586, Mexia, Tex., entitled “Explosion No. 1,” the members are notified that the exact date of the convention has finally been set for October 6 to 9 and the city chosen is Topeka, Kan. Mr. Morgan continues:
“Topeka is making arrangements for a wonderful time, and they have a lot to show us. The program this year will be one of unusual interest to the active water works man. Commissioner Stanfield has promised everything you want and he sure keeps his word. We want you to keep this in mind, and arrange now to he at Topeka on these dates. If you are not a member of this Association, we want you to join us, and we have a desire to have every water superintendent in our district a member of this Association. We can do a world of good for each other, but we need your help. You will find attached hereto a blank which I am asking you to please fill out and return to me. Please do this at once, and I assure you your help will be greatly appreciated, and it will mean a lot to the water man of our district.
“Topeka has a fine new water plant, and this convention will afford you an opportunity to gain much valuable information along all lines of your work. Topeka has a real bunch of men for city officials, and they will be more than glad to welcome you, and they urge your attendance at this convention. Topeka has a big new hotel, and there will be plenty of room for you, and the “gang” will be there. Topeka has a fine city auditorium, and the convention and exhibits will be located in this building, and the conditions are ideal for a real instructive meeting. Topeka has all one may desire and Stanfield says, “More, too.” I don’t know what he means by that, and the only way I know of finding out is to make him produce when we meet him in October.”
