Letter To Editor
Oct. 14, 1960, Sinton, Texas
Since everybody is talking
and writing about, our Democra-
tic and Republican candidates
for President, I’d like to add my
bit for your good Mathis News
and- San Patricio County. For
rixteeVi years I worked for Texas
Employment Commission in and
out of Mathis, taking Veteran
Claims and getting jobs for peo-
ple. I claim good friends :'n your
area; to them and others I want
'to express deep feeling on this
National Election: “Friends, jus
don’t forget that we have only
two parties, Democrats and Re-
publicans; and don’t forget
what each lias always stood for
—The Democrats have stood for
the people, the farmers, for
labor, and, yes, for all business.
The Republicians have stood' for
Big Business, in the North and
East; and here 1 quote our San
Patricio Banker-Rancher, Roy
Jackson: quote “The Republi-
cans may have done much for
Rig Business in the North and
East in the past seven and one-
half years, but it has done noth-
ing for us in the South and West
by it’s “Hard Money and High
Interest Rates.’’ Down here we
need money for expanding our
great South Texas arid our far-
mers need money to make an-
other crop” -end quote.
Then, to add, we have a pa-
thetic picture of a former
Governor of Texas, now a hy-
phenated Shiveracrat speaking
and spending some of his mil-
lions for a Republican: he is
due an apology to Texas Voters
and Taxpayers for his mis-
statement of facts and for his
blackmailing Democrats who
honored him. He knows very
well “The decision of the Su-
preme Court -on Tidelands off
Texas is final.” The poor,
frail rundown politician is

In recent years, Purina Dealers have dared to demon- s
strate their feeding programs publicly .. . show feeders ^
how Purina performs on local grains and roughages.
This has been applauded by many feeders as the
outstanding service offered by a feed dealer.
More than 75 of these demonstrations have been held
in the past several months in the Southwest.
These demonstrations show:
1. The “dollar-and-cents” value of Purina’s Steer Feeding Pro»
2. The opportunity for feeding cattle In the Southwest.
3. The advantages of Purina’s “built-in”
roughage program where no hay is fedl

Recently ! caught myself in a very bad habit. Everytime I
would place a long distance call with the operator I would give
only the last four digits of my telephone number and not the pre-
