been noticing in nearly
every newspaper that turns up
out here on my Johnson grass
farm where nearly every candi-
date, regardless of the office,
has come out forthrightly for
more water for Texas.
One candidate 1 know bitterly
accuses his opponent of having
done nothing about the drouth.
“Here we’ve had a drouth for
five years and he hasn't done a
thing about it except talk,” the
While up to now I didn’t know
there was anything else you
could do about it except talk,
in fact, a drouth
has always sorta
struck me as sort

itician has ever
figured out to do
about it is de-

a healthy sign. It ain’t that they
can do anything about it, it’s just

I haven’t seen the plant yet that
could survive just on whiffs of
water blown in from a lake five
If you ask me, I think the po-
liticians are failing to get at
the bottom of the problem.
The reason we don’t have en-
ough water in Texas is that all
the streams in the state run
the wrong way.
You picture a situation where
when it raius all the water would
head out on the land instead of
down the creek to the ocean, and
you’ll begin to see the light
There’s where our troubel is.
If the Texas legislature will
successfully attack this problem
from this angle, we may start
getting somewhere, but until the
situation is remedied and the
earth is tilted so all the streams
will start emptying water up-
stream instead of down, we’re
gonna have a drouth ever time

Norene Holder, nnrl Martha

versity are visiting in the Per-
I ry Holder Horn ethis week.
„ 61 to 130 more miles

That 's what the'54 Champion
Economy Run against competing kwprieed cars /
find out what the people are dis-
turbed about and come out ag-
ainst it, hasn’t learned the first
lesson in vote-getting.
I notice some of the politici-
ans are pointing out that the
main trouble with the water si-
tuation in Texas is that we don’t
keep enough of the water that
falls on the state, most of it
runs off into the ocean, and lots
of people are proposing we build
more dams, and I’m in favor of
it, although I’ll admit that if
there were fifty dams in all di-
rections from my place, each
one backing up a thousand acres
of water and still it didn't rain
on my farm ar.-d I didn’t own any
of that lake water, I’d be just
as dry in a drouth as I ever was
training at Scott and White Hos-
pital in Temple.
