The President tells us the Su

The town of Mullen is in the

The ranch recently vacated by

Advocates of the so-called calen

What’s in the way now of designat

actual anniversary as the present
Art Hazelbaker will remain on
the ranch he has occupied for the
past few years. They had moved
out to give possession of the place
March 1st but matters have devel

The New Dealers like to rub it
in that they got the electorial vote
of all but two states. The popu
lar majorities were “not so hot” at
that. Their majority was reduced
in Holt county from 2386 four years
previous to a measly 188 in 1936.
And some good substantial neigh
borhoods down this way, like Swan,
Wyoming and Chambers, went two
to one against the New Deal. It is
just as well to remember, too, that
Mr. Hoover got 58 per cent of the
popular vote in 1928.
“The wages of sin is death.”
One wrong act is not always fraught
with the horrifying consequences
of the explosion at New London,
Texas. One dip by the school
board official into the school’s gas
supply could have had no serious
results but the one opened the way
for continued pilfering and whole
sale death of innocent victims has
shocked the world. And the de
ceiving thing of a wrong act is
that the one who tapped that school
gas line would never have done it
could he have forseen the crushing
Some investigating the “set up”
for the 1937 farm program at the
meeting last Thursday were not
favorably impressed, much of it
seemingly obscured in a haze of
technical phrasologe about as clear
as mud. The compensation to ac
crue, particularly as related to the
range feature, would not be worth
the trouble and expense in rear
ranging fencings. Some are sign
ing the necessary papers with the
thought in mind of forfeiting their
right to payment by harvesting the
crop if the crop should amount to
more than the payment.
