From its inception in 1857 the Texas
Almanac and State Industrial Guide has
been designed primarily to let Texans and
others know about the state, thereby
facilitating the economic and civic devel-
opment of Texas. It was first called the
Texas Almanac, then changed to the
Texas Almanac and Emigrants' Guide in
1869 and has been known under its pres-
ent full title since 1904.
Published annually from 1857 through
1861, the Texas Almanac has suffered a
number of interruptions over the years
due to the War Between the States, eco-
nomic depressions and other factors. The
present series began with the edition of
1925, with subsequent editions appearing
in 1926, 1927, 1928, 1929, 1931, 1933, 1936
and 1939. A supplementary edition was
issued in 1937. This thirtieth volume of
the Texas Almanac has been edited by
Stuart McGregor, one of the editors and
staff economist of The Dallas Morning
News, who also edited previous editions
of the Texas Almanac since 1925.
Policy of The News.
The editorial policy of The News and
its associated publishing and radio enter-
prises is first of all to gather and report
the news as completely and impartially
as possible. Beyond that primary aim
The News also responds constantly to
what it considers to be its highest civic
duty, that of promoting the development
of the human and material resources of
its home city, its state and its nation.
In thus attempting to facilitate the eco-
nomic, social and cultural advancement
of this greater community, The News
employs more than 600 specially trained
persons in its various departments. All
work in co-ordinated direction to pro-
vide a sound honest and intelligent in-
strument of present-day journalism.
Through its several agencies The News
strives conscientiously to provide accu-
rate and full dissemination of news,
sound and enlightening interpretation of
news, wholesome entertainment for
readers and listeners and reliable media
of advertising for buyers and sellers in
the conduct of modern economic life.
