VOLUME 51, NUMBER 18
ON the Record
By BENNIE O’BRIEN
As another election year ap-
proaches, rumors are beginning to
be heard from the county seat that
so-and-so is goin to run for this
office or that, and indications are
that a lively time will be had dur-
ing the 1954 county election cam-
paigns. First definite fact to
emerge is the news this week that
Dwight Whitwell, McKinney law-
yer, has announced he will be a
candidate for district attorney.
Roy McWilliams, ex-Celina man
now living in Irving, in Celina re-
cently remarked to me that he
could put The Record straight as
to when the old school-house
burned. It was on November 16,
1914, he said, and gave as his rea-
son for remembering the fact that
that day was the first day his
father, the late Ai McWilliams,
carried the mail on a rural route
out of Celina.
If two men take the same choice
of an enemy, then it follows that
they must have much in common.
The Communist Daily Worker
on November 18 carried an edi-
torial which began:
“Harry Truman’s speech excited
millions of Americans because it
struck back hard at the cancer of
McCarthyism . . . Truman was
speaking historically and accurate-
ly when he put his finger on Mc-
Carthyism as the great peril to
the United States. . . .”
Harry Truman believes (or his
ghost-writer believes) that McCar-
thyism is a “horrible cancer eating
at the vitals of America.”
The Daily Worker concurs with
Joe McCarthy believes that
Communism is the potential ma-
lignancy which threatens to de-
stroy us, and he proposes to cut
it out—roots and all, without re-
sort to the methods of the quack.
Which do YOU think is most
dangerous to Amercia—Commu-!
nism, or Joe McCarthy?

employees of the Frisco Railway,; months-old son of Mr. and Mrs.
temporarily headquartered in Ce-
lina, will begin working out of
Sherman or Frisco, effective Jan-
uary 1, according to T. E. Bliss,
Frisco division engineer.
Some of the men are members
of the now-obsolete section crew

the district gang. Part of them
live in Celina, part in towns up
and down the Frisco.
Several of the men who will be
affected by the move have lived in
Celina for years as members of
the section crew. Some own their
homes here. All of them will find
it necessary to commute to Frisco
or Sherman, or move there.
Mr. Bliss and M. McClendon,
Frisco roadmaster, said the move
was necessary to effect needed
economies in maintenance of way
