This is an old," old story ... but in view of
. the current talk oí recession and depres-
in, it seems peculiarly appropriate today:
There was a man who lived by the side of
the road and sold hot dogs. He was hard of
tearing and had no radio. He had trouble with
his eyes, so he read no newspapers. But he
sold good hot dogs. He put signs up on the
highway telling how gopd they were. He cried
"Buy a hot dog, mister?" and people bought.
He increased his meat and bun orders. He
bought a bigger store to take care of his
trade. He finally got his son home from college
to help him.
But then something happened. His son said,
-Father, haven't you been listening to the ra-
dio? Haven't you been reading the newspa-
pers? There's a big depression on. The Euro-
pean situation is terrible. The domestic situa-
tion is awful. Everything is going to pot."

Give All the Facts
To the furies!
(From the Panhandle Herald)
Many Carson DWI cases are not heard before
a jury, but when the unusual does happen the
jury may not know about ofher DWI convic-
tions of the accused, nor does it matter if the
defendant takes the stand as a witness, his
former driving convictions may not be aired.
The mere threat of losing one's driver's li
eense is no longer enough punishment for
We believe that juries should have all the
facts when dealing with potential killers.
Why is it legal and proper to have all the
facts in federal courts and yet limit state and
county courts to half truths.
Whereupon the father thought, "Well, my
son's been to college; he reads the papers and-
listens to the radio, and he ought to know."
So the father.cut down on his meat and bun
^•ders, took down his advertising signs, and
no longer bothered jto stand out on the high-
way to sell his hot dogs.
His sales fell off almost overnight.
"You're right, my ooy," the father said to
his educated son, "we certainly are in the*
middle of a great depression."

An Ounce of Prevention ....
. . . Can Save Pounds of Cure
Lagging contributions to the community's
Youth Recreation Program may be a sign of
tightening economy ... or simply of inatten-
tion. We suspect that it's a little of both.
It may be due, too, in considerable measure,
to complacency. We have, fortunately, had no
serious juvenile problem in Canadian. If we
did have, it would be easy to get an aroused
community to support a program to correct it.
It's always easy to arouse public interest in
stopping an epidemic once it has started . . .
but unfortunately it's a great deal more dif-
ficult to get people to put out an effort to
prevent one before it happens.
We're not trying to cry "wolf" . . . and we
don't think youngsters are going to turn into
delinquents overnight if we don't provide a
program of organized recreation for them.
But we do think they deserve it . . . for good"
behavior, if nothing else.
We realize that the pufse strings are drawn
pretty tight in most families these days . . .
we haven't any loose cash ourselves . . . but
this is a program in which everybody can help
a little and nobody needs to be hurt much.
And the monthly "bank draft" plan makes it
easy to spread your contribution over a 12-
month period and pay it in painless Install-
If you've overlooked the matter up to now,
why not drop a line to Tex Hill, the Youth
Council secretary, and make your contribution
to the program today?

Uncle Sam's Batting . . .
. . . Average Is Highest!
Human nature being what it is, we tend to
envy people in the big-salary brackets. But
here's a case where things aren't always what
For instance, slugger Ted Williams is the
highest paid player in baseball history, at an
estimated salary of $135,000 a year. But, ac-
cording to L. H. Gregory, sports editor of the
Portland Oregonian, he'll only have around
$35,000 left after paying his federal and state
income taxes. In other words, he does a lot
more batting for the government than he does

U. S. currency, it indicates that >the bill is a

worn or defective.

Wall Street in New York was so named be-
cause it follows the line of the palisaded wall
or stockade built in 1652 across the southern
end of Manhattan Island.
The standard gauge for a railroad track is
four feet, eight and one-half inches.

best drop by Oofle Abraham's
office and take a look at the
five 8xl0-inch framed color
pictures hanging on his wall.
They were all made on the
Campbell Ranch at Mendota
by amateur photographer Jim
Campbell, and no professional
could have done better.
of DALLAS MORNING NEWS
These five photos cover the
range and change of the sea-
sons . . . from a milling herd
of Hereford cattle making
tracks in the snow to a mid-
summer day's dream beneath
the towering cottonwoods.
There is Panhandle foliage at
its autumn best . . . and just
about the finest close-up of a
wild turkey gobbler that we've
ever laid eyes on.
We understand that Jim has
quite a collection of color pho-
tos which he's made in the
Blue Hills country around
Mendota . . . and that his
proud parent. Rancher Bob
Campbell, carries a portfolio
of them in his car and will
show them at the drop of a
hint. If the five which Oofie
picked out for his walls are a
fair sample, they'll be well
worth looking at
We haven't had an oppor-
tunity, yet, to see his other
pictures . . . but we hope
somebody will be able to per-
suade Jim to bring over a
display of them for the an-
, nual Hobby Show, which is
slated for April 26th, by the
Another feature which is
definitely scheduled for the
Hobby Show this year will be
a collection' of science exhibits
put together by Charles Lans-
down's science students at Ca-
nadian High School ... in-
cluding. of course, Billy Rob-
bins' spectacular "Sun and
Planets" display which won
the blue ribbon last week-end
at the first annual Panhandle
Science Fair in Amarillo.
You'll find a good picture of
it on page one of this issue
of The Record.
Next to questions about
housing . . . apartments and
houses, furnished and un-
furnished ... we here at The
Record probably get more re-
quests from newcomers for
names of possible baby-sit-
ters than for any other thing.
If you're interested in baby-
sitting for a fee and will give
us your name, address, and
telephone number (along with
some information about what
times your services will be
availabel) we'll be glad to
keep that information on file
and pass It along to anyone
requesting it. Just call 69 . . .
or better still, drop us a post
card. There's no charge.
Of course, if you're really
interested in drumming up
some baby-sitting business ...
or have any other type of per-
sonal services to offer . . . the
classified ad columns of The
Record offer you the best and
cheapest way of contacting
prospective customers. And
we're always happy to work

A couple of weeks ago we
reported the gift by the Senior
Class of a new TV set to their
sponsor, Mrs. Marion Karr. A
mysterious "gift certificate-
was presented at the same
time to Tom Monroe, who di-
rected the Senior play, but the
nature of the gift was kept
secret because It was not de-
livered in time for presenta-
tion that night. The gift did
arrive, however, and has been
presented ... a handsome
leather brief case, big enough
to serve as an overnight bag
and specially fitted for the
drama coach to use for a
make-up kit as well.
