THE EDITORIAL DIGEST
A Concise Review of the Opinions of Texas Newspaper

By GEORGE 1. SEITZ

Texas editors have opposed and
supported the plan upon various
grounds, and appear to be evenly di-
vided upon the question. Members of
the forty-second legislature align
themselves against the suggestion in
the proportion of about two to one.
In one Texas county, some thirty
'odd defeated candidates who have no
further interest in the election, are
I contributing to the enormous expense
of the run-off primary. It is not án

jedly good men hesitate to announce

The Texas Outlook, official organ
of the Association of State Teachers,
has given the twelve-month plan its
hearty endorsement and is waging an
editorial campaign in its behalf.
It appears highly improbable that
the discussion will ever result in any
unanimity of thought. Operation of
the schools through the entire year
would solve a perplexing problem for
communities which have experienced
exceptionally rapid growth and find
their school plants inadequate for the
demands made upon them. Indeed,
necessity for large bond issues would
thereby be avoided and a sizable sum
saved to the taxpayers.
There seems to lie no good reason
¡why the preferential ballot should
.not be used in state elections where
i three or mode candidates announce
! for an office. Many Texas newspapers
are advocating its use, and the
electorate, in all probability, would
not object to relief from the burden
of a second primary.
Wedding of Miss
Eula German b
Held On Monday
Sister of Mrs. P. P. Phegley of
Temple Weds G. P. Mun-
son of Waco
Miss Eula B. German of Caldwell
and George P. Munson, Jr. of Waco

Communities already provided with
adequate school plants, or plants
which have anticipated the demands
which may be made upon them for
several years to come, of course can
see no such advantage in the plan.
Probably the way out ol the
dilemma is to enact legislation which
will make the twelve-months operation
of the schools-optional with the boards
of the various school districts. Cer-
tainly there seems to be no reason
for making the plan compulsory, or
for denying its advantage? to those
districts which really need it.
This seems to be one of those cases
where sauce for the goose may be
poison for the gander.- So why not
let the goose feed to its full, and the
gander continue to forage in fields
most to its liking?
COTTON FIELD SOLVES UN-
Texas' great cotton fields despite
the fact that the staple is selling at
low levels, are solving the unemploy-
ment problem of the state.
Cotton pickers' wages are by no
means princely, but they are sizeable
enough to keep the wolf from the
door of anyone who doesn't enjoy the
companionship of the grim beast.
Among the host of bills, good, bad,
and indifferent, which will be offered
the 42nd legislature, it is to be hoped
that some legislator will present one
making mandatory the use of the
preferential ballot in future primaries.

In the recent election at Rapid City
a plan was adopted by referendum
vote by which a municipal light and
power plant is to be established in
Rapid City, to be paid out of the sur-
plus earnings of the plant. The plan
adopted here is the one commonly
used by Fairbanks-Morse Company,
by which they install the plant com-
plete under a contract by which it is
gradually paid for out of earnings.

This type of employment is, of
course, temporary. On the other h*nd,
when the cotton is picked, employ-
ment increases in other lines. Rail-
road crews will be expanded to carry
the cotton to the markets; longshore-
men will become busy storing it in
ships; chasers, buyers, ginners, corn-
pressmen—all of them roll up their
sleeves and go to work.
King Cotton still possesses the
magic touch which releases a stream
of gold—a stream which inundates
the whole South. And by the time this
seasonable activity ceases, unless our
economists are as far from the truth
as they have sometimes been, the full
tide of prosperity will have returned
to the land.

sistently osad the preferential ballot
