 * Before 1929 their mother told them about the field needing to be gotten in, and the boys ran off. P.L. took a load of wheat in to sell and he sold the wheat, trailer, horses and moved to Arizona. After a while P.L. was in a bar reading a paper and looked out the window just to see the top of a hat and knew it had to be a Wilks, no one else was that short. So he put the paper up so he couldn't be seen, and the guy, who was one of his brothers, wanted to know if there was any ranches to work or sell, I'm not sure which. P.L. lowered the paper and told his brother, "You can buy mine, Hell, I'm moving back to Texas."
