Small Men as Lawmakers
Now that the legislature has ad-
journed it may not be amiss to say
there are too many small caliber men
making the laws of Texas. The pie-
sent legislative body is no less able
than some others that have preceed-
ed it, but a look at it in action was
enough to convince any one that as a
whole the body lacked the ability and
experience Texas has a right to ex-
pect from those who make its laws.
It is doubtful whether an increase or
salary to $10.00 a day or to $1,000 a
year will greatly improve legislative
personnel. Improvement can come
only from a greater interest on the
part of voters. Under our present
methods a number of men offer for
the legislature regardless of tfheir
qualifications as lawmakers. The
voters then select from the list, all of
whom may be wholly incompetent.
We need to go back to the old system
of mass meetings or conventions at
which capable men a're urged to ac-
cept legislative positions from a pa-
triotic sense of duty.

Lawmaking by Lobbyists
It does not take much acumen to
see that the laws of Texas are not
made by those elected to represent
the people, but by lobbyist employed
to represent special interests. Legis-
lators pass unimportant local bills
and other measures in which capital
or other interests are little concerned,
but when it comes to important mat-
ters where big business or large or-
ganizations are concerned the lobby
directs what shall be done. Lobbying
has become almost a dignified profes-
sion and is vnot necessarily a corrupt
one. Most present-day lobbyist are
highly honorable men and women who
would scorn corrupt practices. They
are employed at good salaries, many
of them by the'year, ostensibly to
serve in other capacities, but really
to influence legislation should their j
services be needed by their clients.

C. H. Walker, of the Dalhart Tex-
an, says the Ft. Worth Record got a
nail puncture in his automobile tire
and offered 10 cents a dozen for rusty
nails picked up by boys on the streets
of Dalhart and taken to the Texan j
office. He received some nails. Mer- j
chants who doubt that people read j
newspaper ads might try out the val-
ue of advertising by such an offer.

Lenten season is a time of greater
devotion to our church. In the larger

Unless you see the "Bayer Cross" on tablets you are
not getting the genuine Bayer Aspirin proved safe
by millions and prescribed by physicians. 24 years for
are likely to go out and do some at-
tacking themselves. So, lobbying in
self defense brings about lobbying to
advance interests. The best remedy
that can be suggested against harm-
ful lobbying is the election.of legis-
lators who are equally as strong as
those persons employed to lobby. To
live after the wick lacks oil.

Stop Knocking any Part of Texas
I see papers from all parts of Texas
and have reached the conclusion that
the greatest harm that is being done
the State comes from the sectional
"knocker." East Texas knocks West
Texas because a few of its citizens
move out there. The west knocks the
east when any of these citizens be-
come dissatisfied and go back. North
Texas hits at the Rio Grande Valley
because of the high price of land, and
the Valley slaps back at the cold-
wind-swept plains. The Eastern
states, fearful of losing their citizens
to Texas, pick up these cudgels and
use them against all of Texas, and so
all of Texas gets back these sectional
knocks. (your mother's sweetheart and has al-
