In varying degrees, the rest of the South Plains and most of West Texas is faced with a similar situation as that which exists in Lubbock county, it was said. Need Tractor Tires Telegrams and other communications from members of the county agricultural war board, of which J. P. Steele of Woodrow is chairman, and from the chamber of cfiirmerce stated that 500 tractor tires will be needed in Lubbock county before May 1 or that large areas of farm land cannot be cultivated. This information has been addressed, among others, to Mark McGe<;, chairman of state rationing, and the West Texas Chamber of Commerce, which is taking the lead in seeking relief for West Texas as a whole. All the communications stress that.farming in' West Texas taken as a whole is highly mechanized, due to the fact that, on, the who!*, farms are jarger than in most sections of the nation. Because a great many farmers rely almost entirely on machinery to work their land, few have livestock to use in crop production. . 3750 Tractors In County The mechanization of farms in Lubbock county, according to the reports, has progressed even further than in most o£ West Texas. The most recent figures reveal that approximately 3,750 tractors are owned in this county, and that approximately 50 now are idle for the lack of tires. Officials have been advised further that the situation is growing worse steadily. Rationing officials have been urged in the appeals from Lubbock and West Texas Chamber of Commerce to take cognizance 01 the fact that some areas of the nation are more highly mechanized than others, to establish quotas for farm equipment that are separate from other types of motor vehicles, and to fix farm quotas on an annual or seasonal basis.
