Several articles about life in the Dust Bowl can be found on the front page of this newspaper from Garden City. Articles of particular interest include two articles on "raging dusters," one on the winter wheat crop, and a brief article discussing the postponement of community meetings to distribute aid under the soil erosion program. The newspaper also includes articles about other newsworthy events occurring in Garden City and around the state of Kansas.

This front page ties together some of the key issues presented in other documents. Also, because it is visually appealing, it could be used as a jumping off point for students to tie these concepts together. This works with sources dealing with how farmers sought to combat dust and soil erosion. It has been selected for both the 7th and 11th grade Dust Bowl standards.
