AUSTIN, Tex., Aug. 27.—(UP)
—Weakest link in the chain of
law enforcement sought to be
welded together by creating a
State Department of Safety is
contact with local law officers.
The department has been in ex-
istence just a year. With its ac-
complishments there has also
gone a failure to build up cooper-
ation with local law enforcers.
Chairman Albert Sidney John-
ston admitted the weakness on
a recent visit to department head-
quarters in Austin. He was puz-
zled about how to strengthen '
* « *
An example of the weakness
was given when prisoners escap-
ed from a prison farm, kidnaped
a man and had a fight after their
victim tipped off a filling station
operator in their flight.
Safety Department headquar-
ters received no notice from the
prison farm where the break oc-
curred, from the point where the
man and automobile were seized,
nor from the town where the
fight took place. Three possible
points of contact all failed to put
the state department with its
forces on notice. The result was
several days of fruitless effort
to run down the convicts—ended
only when a local constable stum-
bled upon them asleep.
Names placed in the new floor
of the state capitol have sent
many usually well informed per-
sons on a history hunt. Palmito
and Coleto stump most people.
Palmito might register with
more Texas if its full name were
used—Palmito Hill. It was at
that spot in Cameron county that
the last battle of the Civil War
was fought in Texas. In these
days of rapid spread of informa-
tion it seems strange that this bat-
tle between the Blue and the
Gray could have taken place 34
days after the surrender of Gen.
Robert E. Lee at Appomatox
Court House, Va.
Coleto Creek as the place
where Colonel Fannin and his
men surrendered to an over-
whelming force of Mexicans.
They were taken from there to
Goliad, more generally associated
with Fannin's name because of
the execution of the Texans.
From the "Fifty-Five Years
Ago" column of the Williamson
County Sun, comes the informa-
tion that Governors' proclama-
tions were used more sparingly
• a half century ago.
The Sun of Aug. 5, 1881 an
nounced that the Jefferson De-
bating Society of Georgetown
would debate the propriety of
Gov. O. M. Roberts' action in re
fusing to issue a proclamation,
as governors of other states had
done, setting apart a day of fast-
ing and prayer for recovery of
President Garfield. Governor
Roberts contended that fasting
and prayer were religious and not

Site of the Buchanan Dam, first
of the big works to control Col-
orado River flood water now be-
ing constructed near Burnet, is
reached by so round-about a way
that most visitors are completely
lost as to direction when they
It is not surprising that the
first question asked by many is:
"Which way does the river
The workmen invariably reply:
"Down stream like all rivers."
Work on the dam which was
begun as the "Hamilton Dam"
on the Insull power system, is
moving rapidly forward. It is
expected that retarding of the
stream flow can begin this fall.
Normal flow must be permitted
to pass the dam site. Only flood
waters are to be stopped, so it
will depend on the weather when
the reservoir basin begins to fill.
It may take two years to store the
full amount of water.

The Texas Governor's assign-
ments for national campaign
speeches have not been issued.
He will go wherever the speak-
ers bureau directs. Personally
he would like to tear out right
behind Gov. Alf M. Landon, re-
publican presidential nominee,
and argue his states' rights stand.
The Texas Governor accuses
thp Kansan of being against state
rights and for a federal dictator
of oil control. As a participant
in the movement for an oil states
compact, Allred made a special
investigation of that feature.
Awaiting word from party lead-
ers and in order to keep his Texa.i
desk clear, Allred meanwhile is
turning down many invitations.
Regrets have been sent to the
-esqui-centennial celebration of
David Crockett's birth, at Green-
ville, Tenn.; to the Arkansas con-
vention of the American Legion,•

monial at Gallup, N M.; to the
"Texas Picnic" of former Texans
now living in Arizona, and to Cal-
