Enthusiasm rampant in Haxtun Harvest subscription drive: when the announcement was read in last week's issue of The Haxtun Harvest that this publication would award free to the ladies, married or single and living in Phillips or adjacent communities, over $2,000 in handsome prizes, the entire country side received the good news in worthy fashion. Featuring two 1936 Chevrolet automobiles as grand capital prizes, The Harvest has been extremely elaborate in its gift distribution to those ladies receiving high honors in the prize campaign. As votes are granted on renewal subscriptions, this feature in itself insures every contestant the cooperation of their many friends. Double votes are granted on all new subscriptions.
