THE PEOPLE SPOKE
The big majority vote rolled up here
last Friday in favor of granting the Texas
Power and Light company a 20-year fran-
chise in one of the hardest contested elec-
tions in the history of! Denison, showed
conclusively that when the people know
the facts they register an intelligent and
The election showed that the PEOPLE
are pulling the reins and will not be sway-
ed by the questionable tactics of some who
lead astray the unwary. That everything
in the bag of political chicanery was pull-
ed to defeat the cause, there can be no
But, be it said to the fair-mindedness
and cool-headedness of the people as a
whole, the clean manner in which the pro-
position for the franchise was put went
home to a big majority of the voters and
the ballot boxes, when opened and the
votes counted, revealed that the franchise
was granted by a vote of 1510 for and
The company has promised, and will
carry through, to give us a whiteway of
which all will be proud. They will spend
many thousands of dollars getting ready
to serve the Denison of tomorrow and
it is hoped, even those who fought so bit-
terly the franchise, wiH now unite to bring
this about, / .
We must know that a corporation
chartered and given a franchise to do bus-
iness in a city considers its reputation as
jealously as does a virgin her character.

from the lake, soon to be seen only by a
few remaining ripples while the great body
of water shows no permanent signs of ev-
er having been disturbed.

Lilliput zinnias are similar in
form to the larger double types,
but the flowers are smaller and
more numerous. They grow in
dwarf bushes 12 to 18 inches tall,
with branching stems, bearing a
flower at the end of each branch.
The plants are almost smothered

Automotive Industry Moves Ahead
■ ! 11
Automotive production of rvcord l.velt; more automotive jobs than ever before, motor vehicle travel sets new recordl Thii
« the itory of progresl just revealed in the automotive industry by the Automobile Manufacturers Association
DETROIT—In the first six months of 1949, the automotive industry produced nearly 3,000,000 new cars,
trucks and buses—almost as many units as were turned out in the lull year of 1946. A steady increase has been
registered since the industry surmounted its war reconversion problems. A 55% gain in production was made
in 1947 over 1946, and a 10% gain was registered in 1948 over the preceding year. The half year of 1949 it up
209? from the first six months of 1948.
Industry jobs jumped from 6,700,000 in 1941 to 9,020,000 in 1948. This means one out of every seven job
holders in the nation earns his wages in the highway transportation industry. These jobs cover manufacturing,
road building, sales and service, trucking and miscellaneous work
Main street is dotted with more businesses keyed to highway transportation, and over 90% of them are small
enterprises, employing less than 20 employes each. Business accounts for 56% of all car crips; social and recrea-
tional driving is 16% of the total; shopping 12% and other purposes 16%. Rural travel climbed from 169 billion
miles in 1941 to 197 billion in 1948. Urban travel increased from 163 billion miles in 1941 to 203 billion in 1948.
Governmental agencies are collecting an all-time high in automotive dollars. Special taxes alone now exceed
$3 billion annually, with motor trucks accounting for more than a third of the total. One of the largest tax
items is the federal excise levy on new motor vehicles. First invoked as a "temporary emergency measure" in 1932,
it has been increased twice since, instead of being repealed.

The storage for canned foods
should be cool, dark, dry, well-
ventilated, clean and free from
odors. Even good quality canned
foods will develop a flat, sour
taste and will lose food value when
stored at warm temperatures.
Rotenone or derris will kill more1
insects when applied during the
heat of the day or when the tem-
perature is rising.
Nicotiana and zinnias both germi
nate quickly and grow rapidly
from seed. They flower from early
summer until the plants are killed
by freezing in the fall. The zinnias
are ideal for cutting, as well as
excellent for garden display. They
can be used for bowl arrangements
on the table, or vases in the living
A planting of this nature can be
used in many locations besides the
particular one illustrated. In front
of any one-story house, set close
to the ground level, borders of flow-
ers will make an attractive frame
for the house, with no danger of
growing so tall in a short time, that
they will shut out sunlight, and ob-
scure the view from the windows.
All the varieties used in this plan
are sun loving, and endure hot
weather. They are seldom attacked
by insects. If the soil in which they
are sown is fertile, the chief care
required will be regular watering,
and cutting off faded flowers. To
insure fertility, four pounds of a
complete plant food should be
spread on the soil and worked in
before the seed is sown, using four
pounds to 100 square feet.
