Editor's note: The Navidad
Philosopher on his Johnson
grass farm on East Navidad
thinks he sees a parallel be-
tween farmers and service sta-
tion men, his letter this week
Not that it eases the farm
problem to know about this,
but other lines
of work are
having t h ei r
I read in a
night that "the
station industry is facing its
most serious economic test in
It went on to explain that
the trouble is, "profits have not
increased at the same rate as
expenses," and also that "oil
companies build stations indis-
criminately, and thereby in-
crease the number of retail out-
lets to a point where the com-
petition is so great that no one
is making money."
Now 1 want to say that I
sympathize with the service sta-
tion boys, I know what it is to
have expenses mount and prof-
its drop, and I know what over
production can do to you.
But as for the solution, that's
another thing. I was talking
with a neighbor of mine about
this and he said, "Thunder, if
they can't make a living where
they are, let 'em move to town
and get a job there," but I
explained that most service sta-
tions are already in town.
Unfortunately, attention has
been called to the plight of the
service station men too late to
get it in the platforms of either
party this year, although both
sides sure missed an opportu-
nity to draw up a ringing plank
about this matter. After all,
if you count up the number of
stations in your town, and mul-
tiply it by all the towns in the
United States, plus those along
the highways out in the coun-
try, you can see it's possible
the service station vote may
amount to a balance of power
in the coming election. Some-
body sure slipped up.
I know some expert is going
to blame the situation on de-
fiance of the law of supply
and demand and announce that
the only thing to do is to sit
back and let nature take its
course, let the marginal service
stations go under and leave the
field to the most efficient, but
as I understand it, even the
efficient ones are having trou-
ble, even the ones that clean
your windshield and all the win-
dows, sweep out the floors,
walk your dog, heat your baby's
bottle, wipe your glasses for
you, give trading stamps and
come to attention and salute
as you pull out.
I think this problem ought
to be solved, but first we got
to solve the farm problem.
Ought to get around to the
service station boys maybe by
the year 2000.

Harvest cotton faster
with a new John Deere
For really fast, clean harvesting of
stripper cotton, you just can't go wrong
with the new John Deere 77 Stripper.
You can wade right through the heav-
iest irrigated cotton. You can work at
speeds up to 6 mph. You save more cot-
ton, and put less trash in the trailer.
The 77 has a new auger and paddle
system which keeps cotton moving into
wide conveyors. Positive chain drive
keeps you going. Open rod grates drop
trash on the ground. Scaled bearings
We know this equipment can cut
costs for you. Stop in or give us a call,
and let's talk it over.
