The present ontloolc adds up that
The big $54,000,000 Denison dam is a
going concern. It is no longer in the "per-
There is no doubt as to where the
money is coining from—and that it will
come—it is from the war departent and
periodical allocations are, and will contin-
ue to be made.
This «noney will be forthcoming as
fast as we may need it thus assuring the
work to progress right along.
By early spring you will see Denison
teeming with multitudes of people and
by early fall we shall have a least 3.00*0
to 5,000 persons at woflk on the dam
alone. Add to this those industries and
business concerns which will naturally be
drawn here and you have a picture of
what to expect—a city of around 30,000
This is just the right size place for
one to live and do well. It is plenty big
for a modern city and sizeable enough to
rise up and dominate things in this gen-
What you will receive out of this
picture depends on what you are willing
to do to help make it a reality.
The whole situation calls for the co-
operation of every bloomin' soul.
Be big enough to welccfene other con-
cerns and let's all join hands to work for
p. bigger and grander Denison.
This editor took a trip recently up into
Oklahoma as far as Henryetta and fouhd
two things standing out—one good and one
bad—about Denison. The good thing wa&
with exception of one the towns through
which we passed, all of them had a large
number of vacant buildings in the business
district, while we recalled that Denison
has only two or three vacant business
houses. The bad thing was that we saw no
sign advertising Denison on highway 75 as
one comes south, until we reached the
southern outskirts of Calera, Okla., some
] 4 miles north of Denison.

Now For a Bigger, Grander
Denison in 1939
Denison has, in the new year 1939
along with the rest of the southland, one
of her best years awaiting. Especially is
this true of Denison. It is im the air. You
can feel it. Everybody practically, is
And when people concentrate with
one mind on a given thing, it goes a long
way toward securing that end.
On every hand in Denison, business
men are generally saying that things look
the brightest than they have for many
And all of us can't be wrong. Some-
thing good is bound to come out of such
thinking and concentration of effort.
All we need now ito do is to go out
and cash in on this feeling.
Looking backward over "Denison 62-
50-35 Years Ago" as run daily in the
Dettison Press, there is much that parallels
the outlook for this new year 1939. This
adds further to the position taken that we
are facing a good year for this city.
Back two yeans ago the Press sug-
gested a 25,000 club for Denison, to work
with the idea that by 1940 we would have
that number in this city
The idea did not go over big enough
for any kind of organization to be formed, j pers the week. All daily papers, thank
But we are still as stubbornly con- heaven, are not so tarnationally mercenary
tending that we shall have that number that they deny their readerii news privi-
by the end of this year. t leges when ads are dull.
Trying to force a Sunday paper down
the throats of the people by graveyard
whistling is like making a boy think he
likes castor oil and giving him a sales talk
while putting the spoon down his throat.
People want their Satudayi news Saturday
and not next week. They don't want an af-
ternoon paper to turn hiorning edition on
the weekend and to try and tell them they
like it. It's poor selling. The Press knows
better and will continue to come to the
readers Saturday. Incidentally, in looking
over the Standard Rate and Data, a publi-
cation which carries all the legitimate daily
papers over the United States, we find no
paper which has dropped its Saturday edi-
tion because of "seemingly insurmountable
difficulties" and getting out only five pa-
OTHER EDITOR'S THOUGHTS
