Denison’s reaction in crisis
The reaction of Denison s citizens to the horrible crime of
having one of its daughters raped by a trio of negroes, is nothing
short of a mark of ability to bear up under the most trying
of crimes as citizens under control of the operation of law.
Nothing short of that held back the stirred souls of men
when the news broke. Plenty there were of aroused men who
would have taken the law into their own hands. But the quick
and commendable action of the police and sheriff's department,
in taking emergency steps to apprehend the three charged with
the crime and spiriting them away to a distant and safer jail,
is something that gave mature and uninflamed thinking time to
come to the fore. Possibly this saved our city something that
would have been regretted in years to come. While the crime
as charged is most beastly, and the swift movement of the law
must be demanded by all, still the worst of criminals deserve
due process of trial.
Yet there are some reflections that need to be made.
First of all, parents of teenagers should be made to accept
the infractions of the law of which our children are found guilty.
If we can't try in any court the juvenile, then the alternative is
to set the age standard for trial on the teen-ager level. Youth
today is defying the arresting officer with the answer he is a
teen-ager and "you can t do anything about it.
Second, with the present demand generally found among
editors of the nation for names of arrested teenagers to be print-
ed rather than give them "a break as the cry goes, give them
fullest publicity when arrested and charged with infraction of
Third if the parents will not keep their children off the streets
after a reasonable night hour, there should be a strict curfew
As no one can transplant a full-grown tree and do it suc-
cessfully, but the tender young tree must be planted early, so
it is with our youth.
Just as some of the local negro citizens acknowledged their
guilt as they indicated their sorrow that some of their race was
charged in committing the heinous crime of raping a white
girl, as well as breaking any other law, so also may the white
race of the city make a like plea of their guilt for misconduct
of youth. In a real sense all of us might acknowledge the fact
that we are "our brother's keeper.
And, on the positive side, with the current agitation sweep-
ing the country anent segregation or non-segregation, the facts
are both the negro and the white are guilty of speaking in such
tones as to arouse a more or less bitter feeling between the two
races. No doubt the NAACP move is largely guilty in Texas at
this time of spreading unrest. Whether or not intended, it is
being done. Youth can t hear such talk and be able to separate
the chaff from the wheat. Hearing discussions in their homes
when the discussion becomes acrid, without consideration of
their offspring's1 inability to keep down a biased view, is no
doubt taking hold of the minds on both sides of the issue. If the
negro lacks wisdom he will try and push his case of integration
against rebelling minds and, on the other hand, if the whites de-
nounce the idea with language that is not guarded, there, also,
lies the sin that may rise up and smite society a hard blow.
When we try to put new wine in old bottles, we lose both.
The greatest Teacher of all, spea-. rig of minds that grasp slow-
ly, or are not at the psyche eg co hour for added and emerging
truth, said: "I have many things to say to you, but ye can not
If all of us will withhold harsh words, and armed ambition to
win our point, perhaps in me days ahead, while we continue to
get along as we ha.e in the spirit of good citizenship, the fut-
ure will take care of our common society, our brotherhood of
man, and while race hatred will die, we shall still maintain our
own color line, our own pride in our race, and unity without uni-
formity will undergird, and freedom within the framework of
the constitution shall make the world see what Americanism at
work really is.

“Sine die” is the
magic phrase around the Capitol
nowadays. It’s the phrase trad-
itionally applied to the final ad-
journment time agreed on by
both houses of the Legislature.
Only three weeks remain of the
120 days recommended in the
Constitution for sessions. After
that (May 7) lawmakers’ pay
Sentiment appears strong for a

near that deadline. It’s been a

plough through the usual hun-
dreds of measures requiring
study, debate and some sort of
agreement. Many are still backed
up in discouraging stacks.
Even so, say members, they
hope to shove through the ‘musts’
and go home on time. But likely
differences of opinion on what
constitutes “musts” promise even
more tension and temper for the
One of the biggest issues still
gathering steam in the Legislature
is the teacher pay raise. Despite
strong backing, the drive has
been beset with stumbling blocks.
Public school teachers want a
$399-a-year boost. Total cost for
the biennium is variously estim-
ated from $45,000,000 to $70,-

introduced without an enacting

Ethics Bill Zips Out
After weeks of haggling in the
House, the code of ethics bill
whizzed through the Senate in
It goes to the governor’s desk
with 29-0 Senate approval.

state official or employe shall

Meanwhile, Texas Research
League released a study suggest-
ing further revision of the regis-
tration laws. License fees based
on weight result in inequities,
said the League. It proposed a
flat fee for all size cars.

Segregation Bill Okayed
A bill regarded as the corner-
stone of a program to maintain

round House vote.
It would allow local board to

Also confirmed, after long de-

ABOUT YOUR HEALTH
A weakly public service feature from
the Texas State Deportment of Health.
HENRY A. HOLLE, M.D., Commlsllonet
AUSTIN — A California poul-
try-dressing plant disposes of its
waste products in an oxidation
pond. The wastes in the water and
sunlight playing on it combine to
make algae grow. Then the algae
is harvested and fed to the plapt’s
new crop of young chicks. It is
the only feed they get.
Oxidation ponds are among the
most recent developments in the
science of domestic waste dispos-
al. Not to be confused with hap-
hazard sewage lagoons, oxidation
ponds conform to regular shapes
and uniform depths. They work
on this principle:
When partially treated domes-
tic sewage is discharged into shal-
low ponds, algae—a type of tiny
vegetable growth — will flourish
in the water. The oxygen acts to
convert organic matter in the
sewage to carbon dioxide, which
in turn is used by the algae in
its growth processes.
State Health Department water
pollution control engineers say
oxidation ponds, besides creating
favorable environments for bio-
logical treatment of city wastes,
are probably easier oil the city’s
pocket book than any other meth-
od of sewage disposal. And they
are at least a partial answer to
Texas’ perennial water shortages.
Instead of risking stream pollu-
tion by discharging partially
treated effluent into streams, why
not capture that effluent in oxi-
dation ponds and use it for ir-
rigating feed crops or for cool-
ing processes in industry?
More than 200 Texas cities are
presently doing this veiy thing.
Lubbock is irrigating 1860 acres
of grass and pastureland. Big
Springs and Amarillo supply sev-

sage to a bill which would allow

HOT CHECK LAW AMENDED
FOR EMPLOYERS WHO PAY
SALARIES WITH N.G. PAPER
AUSTIN — An amendment to
the Texas “hot check” law that
makes employers liable for pay-
ing their employees with checks
that “bounce” has been signed in-
to law by Gov. Price Daniel.
Charles T. Lux, executive vice-
president of the Retail Merchants
Association of Texas, said the
new amendment closes a loophole
in the “hot check” law. “Until
this amendment was signed, a re-
tail business or any other place
of business that accepted worth-
less checks presented in good
faith by workers had practically
no legal recourse to recover its
loss,” Lux said.
"Now under the new amend-
ment employers who give checks
that prove to be ‘hot’ are sub-
ject to criminal prosecution and
may be fined up to $2,000 and
sent to jail for 30 days if the
amount involved is less than $50.
If the amount of the worthless
check is more than $50, then the
penalty is from two to ten years
in prison and a fine up to $10,-
Lux said there were several
hundred cases in Texas last year
where employers paid off their
workers with worthless checks
causing the places that cashed
these checks to lose many thou-
sands of dollars.
Prosecution of these cases un-
der the Texas “hot check” law
was difficult because provisions
did not cover checks given as
wages or salaries for lervicei.

While further research will be
necessary before the use of ef-
fluence can be recommended for
irrigating crops for human con-
sumption, its value for feed crop
irrigation is indisputabe.
Besides their usefulness for
waste disposal and irrigation, a
move is afoot to see if the ponds
can be used for fish culture.
Since effluent can readily be
made to support fish in limited
numbers, State Health Depart-
ment engineers and Fish and
Game Commission biologists be-
lieve there may be a possibility
of cultivating fish in sufficient
quantities for commercial sale as
dog and cat food and fertilizer.
If so, the ponds could become an
additionally important source of
How would the country editors
of this nation vote on major pub-
lic questions if they were in their
Congressman’s shoes? The Amer-
ican Press, which is an independ-
ent magazine for hometown
newspapers, decided to find out
by means of a survey. In its
March issue it publishes the re-
sults, tabulated from the replies
of 794 country editors, represent-
ing every section of the country.
Here, in brief form, are some of
the questions and findings ("No
Answer” replies are not included
in this summary, hence the per-
centages do not total 100.)
1. Should the President have
the authority to use U.S. forces
in the Middle East if he deems
it necessary to stop Communist
aggression? The “Yes” faction
has the overwhelming majority—
71 per cent to 27 per cent.
2. Should foreign aid (which
has been running at about a $4
billion annual rate) be increased,
decreased, or maintained at the
same amount? Only 6 per cent
of the editors say more, while 63
per cent say less and 26 per cent
favor the same amount.
3. Should John Foster Dulles
continue as Secretary of State?
Mi'. Dulles is given a vote of
confidence—57 per cent to 38
4. Should farm priee supports
be returned to the old 96 pep
cent of parity level? Only 22 per
cent favor this, as against 74 per
5. Should corporation taxes be
moderately reduced, by returning
to the rates of some years ago?
This is a very close one, with 32
per cent favoring reduction, 35
per cent favoring continuance and
29 per cent endorsing reductions
on the first $25,000 of profit.
6. Should corporations be ex-
empt from taxation on that por-
tion of earnings they distribute
as dividends and upon which in-
dividuals pay taxes — that is,
should this form of double taxa-
tion be eliminated, The vote is
69 per cent “Yes” to 28 per cent
7. Should any budget surplus
be applied to reducing taxes or
to reducing the national debt? A
big majority, 70 per cent, pre-
fers to reduce the debt, as against
25 per cent favoring tax cuts.
8. Should the bill authorising
a minimum of $600 million a year
of federal money for school con-
struction be approved? Here is
another close one—45 per cent
of the editors say “Yes,” and
53 per cent “No.”
9. Should bills requiring that
cooperatives and savings and loan
associations be subject to the same
taxation as other businesses be
approved? The “Ayes” have it,
overwhelmingly—86 per cent to
12 per cent.
10. Should first-class postage
rates be raised to 5 cents, along
with the provision that air-mail
would be used when possible?
This proposal received a “No”
majority of 60 per cent, a3
against 39 per cent saying “Yes.”
11. Should the Vice-President be
relieved of his job of presiding
over the Senate, and given spec-
ific executive duties? The editors
strongly favor this much-discus-
sed possibility by a margin of
63 per cent to 33 per cent.
The American Press prints
pages of comment from country
editors on those and other issues.
One thing is clear—whatever side
or solution they favor, most of
them have definite ideas and they
don't hesitate to express them
Early in April, news dispatches
from London told of serious pol-
itical problems faced by I’l-ne
Minister Macmillan—and of what
was termed a “new wave of Anti-
These two developments are
closely related. They stem from
a British fear, which finds many
influential voices in the the coun-
try’s principal newspapers ami
I magazines as well as government,
that England is becoming the tail
to the U.S. kite. For example, our
agreement, made at Bermuda, to
supply England with guided mis-
siles, drew this comment from
the Sunday Express: “The Ber-
muda deal gives rise to fears that
the rocket defense of Great Brit-
ain is virtually handed over to
The root of all this lies in the
profound change that is taking
place in Britain's role in the
world. The British are a proud
people and for good reason. Be-
hind them is a magnificent his-
tory. What is shocking to trad-
itionally-minded England is that
the days of vast empire and pow-
er are also behind them.
U.S. News & World Report puts
it this way: “Great Britain, in all
except economic relations with
Commonwealth nations, is draw-
ing back to the status of an is-
land country — still with great
strength in capital and in people,
but no longer a power that leads.”
It adds that the islands are mil-
itarily vulnerable in this age of
hydrogen weapons, and, on top of
that, are self-sufficient in very
few of today’s basic national
The magazine traces what has
happened to the old Empire—-
that Empire on which the sun
never set. It came to its zenith
in the great age of Victoria, who
was the ruler of a quarter of the
globe. Then the colonies, begin-
ning with Australia, began to
gain their independence. One new
and independent nation after an-
other has been created. Today the
population of remaining British
colonies is but 80 million—where
as recently as 1939 it was 563
Britain’s economic power and
military power have declined ac-
cordingly. Once the British Navy
ruled the waves. At the peak of
her sea power, in 1914, she had
195 capital ships. In 1939 she had
122. Now she has 48, and but 20
are currently in operation.
What this means is that much
of the authority Britain used to
exert in the world has passed to
other hands. She remains an ally
of the United States, and to most
students she is the most import-
ant and reliable ally. But her ca-
pacity to pursue major policy
puiely on her own hook and in
accordance purely with her own
judgement is gone—as the Mid-
dle-Eastern crisis, and the resig-
nation of Prime Minister Eden,
What importance has this fate-
ful evolution to the United
States? The answer is: Eveiy im-
portance, whether we like it or
not. When vacuums exist in the
world, they must be filled. Only
two powers are capable of filling
great vacuums—the United States
and the Soviet Union. These are
the sole powers with the wealth,
the weapons, the populations, the
strengths of all kinds. Americans
certainly want no empires. But
basic responsibilities of empire
have fallen upon us.
