The fact that some legislation for re-
'ief purposes and a few other things were
done that tax the people, will not suffice
to mitigate the fact they fiddled around
and let the Democratic Rome burn.
They will—the Congressmen—have to
answer for a lot of things, Mr. Rayburn
along with the rest of them.
The trouble with mixing whiskey and
driving is that the driver does not seem
able to make up his mind which is the
other fellow's side of the highway.
Denison is soon to have paved alleys
in the business area added to its down
town convenience. Under the alley pav-
ing will be a storm sewer of proportions
sufficient to take care of the water that
has been bothering the business area in
heavy rains for more than 62 years back.
When that new Denison-Bells high-
way has the top finished on it, the fine
section drained by the splendid piece of
highway will have at its command quicker
means of getting produce to the Denison
nd Bells markets. Travel of the through
kind will also be considerably accelerated.

we shall be left so vulnerable that either
a third party or the Republicans will get
back into the saddle so strong that the
opportunity whiled away in the session just
not back Mr. Roosevelt as a man. We
back no man as an inidvidual in all he does
politically, economcally, religiously or ed-
ucatinally. But backing Mr. Roosevelt as
closed will not come again in many years, kind will also be considerably accelerated.
The people know better than the Con- a candidate of the Democratic party on

the people from every section of the coun-

To try and tell the people they were
the regular ticket, or any other man nom-
inated by the party, is quite a different
thing. We always vote it straight. What
does the reader want us to do—submit our
editorials to him and let his mind tell ours
what we should think on all subjects on
which he takes some time out occasionally
to give a little thought? If he does, he
would make a good Hitler.

WHILE THE GOVERNMENT
Cotton prices dropped another
dollar per bale Tuesday as hedge
selling failed to be offset by spe-
culative buying in the market.
The reason for lack of speculative
buying, of course, is the dilatory
policy of te Government in as-
suring farmers of the 9-cent loan
and three-cent parity payment
There is much criticism of spe-
culative buying of cotton or any
other commodity on every hand
Still, that element must be present
to maintain the price of cotton.
The cotton firm that buys a
thousand bales of cotton today
sells a thousand bales on the fu-
ture market tomorrow. That ac-
tion protects the cotton purchaser,
the buyer, who makes the profit
he has figured on his purchase no
matter which way the market
goes. But unless there is some
speculative support on the buying
side, some buyers who believe
that condition warrant an advance
in the market, the continued
hedge selling can have only one
effect—to depress prices.
1 That is what has been hap-
pening in the cotton market in

might be within his privilege, but
under the higher law of mercy

marketing season has arrived,
with consequent heavy dumping
of the fleecy staple on the mar-
ket, the hedge sales have become
heavier and heavier and heavier.
If there'were speculative buying
support, the market would rock
along on an even keel. But there
has'nt been. There has been too
much unctrtainty about the Gov-
ernment's future policy. It should
do one thing or the other. Thus
far the Government has promul-
gated a policy, but has done noth-
ing about carrying it out. This
delay has occasioned fear on the
part of the man who would ordi-
narily believe the policy would re-
sult in an upturn of prices, there-
by causing him to buy,
Congress desired to initiate the
loan and parity plan at least thre
weeks ago. There is no telling
how many millions of dollars the
farmers lost because the plan
has been delayed in execution.
Farmers don't know how to pro-
ceed. Most of them need the
money for their cotton as they
get it out of the field. Buyers
don't know how to proceed either
