My friend, John Gould, wrote in
the Wichita Palls Daily Times:
There ought to be a symphony
of Texas, wrought by one with the
art and the affection to compose
it, and he put into it the howling
of coyotes and the swish of the
baffled sea against the granite
wall at Galveston, and the tramp
of marching feet and the indus-
trious clatter of an oil rig and the
bright music of a mockingbird
singing in the rain, and the plain-
tive bellow of a newly branded
coif, and the crunch of Sam Hous-
ton's men gnawing raw corn after
San Jacinto and the voices of
children repeating the pledge to
the flag, and the sound of an old
hymn at a brush-arbor revival
and the whirr of airplanes, and
the cry of a tamalie-vendor calling
his wares to the passers-by.
You should know, too, the smells
of Texas, the smells of saddle
leather and chili and pine forests
and sheep-dip and wild plum blos-
not yet will you know Texas
as she would ask to be known.
Not even her own sons and daugh-
ters know her as they should; not
even they have caught all her
moods and her mysteries, her
shadings and her overtones.
But they know that there is
something that draws men to her
and makes them Texans partak-
ing of her heritage. They know
that wherever, under the flag,
whether in Iceland or Rangoon,
there is one called Tex, he is one
of whom men know that he will
not fail In the crucial hour.
Texas is a catalyst, which works
a change without itself being
changed. It is a salute and a
challenge. It is a prayer and a
song. It is a land that one must

Announces Details of
$20,000,000 Price Reductions
Details of the recently announced International
Harvester policy of making price reductions
to save users of our products approximately
$20,000,000 a year have now been worked out.
We have reduced prices on 163 models. These
cover 12 basic models of farm tractors, 123
basic models of farm machines, 16 basic models
of industrial tractors and engines, and 12 mod-
els of motor trucks, as well as certain motor
truck attachments. The new lower prices arc
effective as of March 10, 1947.
These reductions were made not because of
any decline in demand, but because we believe
nothing is more important to this country than
to lower the prices of the goods people buy.
While prices have not been changed on all
products, we have made reductions wherever
possible, in the amounts possible. Prices of
many of our most popular products have been
Altogether, more than half of the company's
customers will be benefited by the reductioas,
which range from 1 % to 23.8% and from $2.50
to $300 per item, based on list prices, F.O.B.
Since the people have demanded that the
government withdraw from price control in
peacetime, the responsibility to keep prices in
check is back where it should be—in the hands
of business and industry. The business outlook
makes it possible for us to move toward the
goal of lower prices, and we have felt a duty
to act as promptly as possible.
Our ability to maintain these lower prices
will depend on the supply and price of materials
we buy from others and on uninterrupted pro-
duction at reasonable wage levels.
The prices listed here carry out our an-
nounced policy that "Any price is too high if
it can be reduced."
