Want to Stop Campaign Promises

MT. PLEASANT, TEXAS
Editor. note: Achin Al-
corn. philinopher on his
Johnson grass farm on Sul-
phur. is oft on the topic of
promises this week a sub-
ject he’s an authority on.
Dear EdiUr: I was out here
Monday seem how much dam-
age the recent cold spell did,
wonderin if it had got cold en-
ough to freeze all the insects and
the weeds and grass, which ain’t
never occurred beforv? but there
ain’t no law against hopin. as
there ought to be some way of
rnakin a crop without plowin all
spring and summer, as 1 been
told that’s hard work, havin nev-
ir gotten around to it myself,
when 1 picked up a copy of the
Lamar County Echo which was
still waterlogged but that ain’t
unusual for that paper, and dried
it out and read where a govern-
m nt expert in Washington who
got appointed instead of elected
to ins job was advisin congrcss-
iv. < n and state legislators to go
easv on pron.isin too many tilings
•< the voters.
T’l^e is a danger for exam-
I | k lie said, "that legislators
v. ill promise their districts more
leads than could he built during |
tie next decade, even if the gov-
< inn.cut had the money."
Ain’t t’ is anotlier mamfesta-
...at it's best /
tion of un-Americanism croppin
up in Washington’’
Since when hasn't a politician
got the right to promise’’ How
many would we have left if you
r« tired all those who didn’t’
While I never have under-
stood why a man would want to
leave his home and go to Austin
or to Washington, I have always
understood, in fact, supposed
everybody in America under-
stood, that regardless of why he
wanted to go there, the only way
he could get there was by prom-
lsin And if you’re gonna prom-
ise just as much as you can act-
ually accomplish, you ain't gon-
na get a chance to accomplish
that as the folks that’s already
in is doin that much. What us
voters want is promisin that
doesn't stop at the edge of the
possible. Any candidate who)
can't promise no more than what 1
the State can afford might as j
well save the cost of his candi- '
date cards and get his plow in
A;id promisin more roads is
o’ of ti/e most cherished prom-
i <• s a fr.-e American can offer,
and uni Washington bureaucrat
wlio throws cold water on it 1
ought to go bark where lie come
from. If all the roads was built
that was promised last summer
alone, there wouldn’t be much
land left to cultivate, which ain’t
no bad ijdea. Why the road in
front of my house has been pav- j
ed orally speakin, so many times
in the past twenty years it
would've been eight layers thick
bv now if half the promisin had
Tliis country is based on prom-
isos. Just kaep send in me your
paper and I promise I’ll pay you
v. lion I got ai mind to it.
Yours faithfully. A. A.

Heavy precipitation along the

Duke Gets His Tractor
Dak* Thomas bought a farm with
the money he’d saved in the Serv-
ice. but be rouldn t get a tractor.
He needed it badly, but waa tenth
•a the local dralcr’a list.
"Tell you what." old man refers
Says. “If those nine fellows ahead
of you agree, you'll get the next
one I get in.” "No, thanks," says
Duke, “I’ll just take my turn.”
But old Peters mails out nine
postcards. And the other day ho
tells Duke his tractor will lie in
next week. "I simply wrote the
facta to the fellows ahead of you.
They decided it."
From where 1 sit. It’s that spirit
of understanding that helps make
our democracy ho great. I nder-
atanding for the other fellow a
problems and respect for the other
fellow's rights — whether it's his
right to earn a living, his right to
cast his vote against your candi-
date, or even his right to enjoy a
moderate, friendly glass of beer or
ale— if and » hen he chooses. Let's
ala ays keep it that way!

Snow Helped Save
Land Cover Crop
The two-inch snow in this area
might have been largely respon-
sible for saving the record win-
ter cover crop from below zero
temperature, according to Soil
Serving as a probative cush-
ion from the freezin winds, the
snow probably saved the cover
crop from a sc; mils set-back in
growth and possibly complete
f-vezing out in ome places, the

February I I marks the birthday of Thomas Alva
Edison, the man who first brought me to light as a
servant of mankind.
Thanks to his invention of the incandescent lamp,
I bring sight-saving light to homes, farms and in-
His pioneer steam power plant, built in 1882, has
grown into the vast electrical industry of today,
multiplying my ability to serve you a millionfold.
Today, I am doing more work for more people at
lower hourly wages than ever before.
Many of the services I perform were unknown when Edison died in
1931. But they all stem from his genius. My hat's off to him as the
father of electric service and greet benefactor of mankind.
