there are a whole lot of big-hearted

Today Is the time set for payment
of interest on the war debts. If pay-
ment is made, Uncle Sam may yet
be able to do some Christmas shop-
If beer is taxed to help balance
the budget, the tax will thereby be
taken off those most able to bear it
and placed on those least able to pay
—the working man.

Come in and renew for the Record
before the dollar rate is withdrawn.
Do not forget that the Record is a
fine Christmas present. In fact one
dollar brings a relative or friend fif-
ty-two Christmas presents—one every
week in the year.

The government cotton estimate is-
sued last Thursday, boosted the yield
780,000 bales over its last former es-
timate. Well, it does not matter much
now, as the cott ni is about all out
and marketed. Some are holding, but
the holdings are light.
Saturday one hundred thousand
people witnessed the Southern Cali-
fornia-Notre Dame football game. As
long as 100,000 people can pay the
admission price to see a football
game there must be a few people in
the country who still retain their

People who believe that the drink-

can always be depended upon to fight
any move to liscense its sale. Just

Many believe it is wrong to license

oion steer grown by Will
Lai£_ w. Merkel Texas, brought
$1,550. That is a large sum to pay
for a beef steer. The buyers figure
that what they lose in serving beef
that cost them $1.25 per pound will
be made up by the advertising they
get out of the purchase. Texas will
also get a lot of valuable publicity
out of this steer.
We noticed in the papers the other j
day where a farmer heard his hogs 1
squealing during the night and went
to investigate. He fV und one with its
throat cut. In order to save the meat
he called in a neighbor and the two

Back seat drivers were given legal
status in a Topeka, Kas., court Sat-
urday when it was ruled that it is
the duty of passengers of an automo-
bile to warn the driver of approach-
ing danger. That should afford back-
seat drivers much' comfort. They are
going to function, however, with or
without a court ruling, not only when
danger approaches, but when there is
no danger. A back seat driver not
permitted to direct the driving of the
car would be in the class of a steam
boiler with no safety valve.

The American people have shown
great patience under very trying cir-
cumstances during this depression,
but news items such as one appearing
last week-end to the effect that Post-
master General Brown, finding that
the top of the new car furnished him
by the government was not high en-
ough to give his top hat clearance,
was given another larger and more
expensive car. The Postmaster Gener-
al might have remedied that matter
by doing as many of the people of
this community are doing—using a
model T Ford without any top at
Celina merchants are through the
columns of the Record this week so-
liciting your business when you do
your Christmas shopping. They have
good stocks and the price is as low
a you will find anywhere. Under
these conditions the part#of wisdom
is to spend your money with Celina
merchants and keep it in the com-
munity where it will go on paying
debts and you will have a chance
to get some of it back.

It seems to us that a bank book is one of the best
Christmas presents imaginable. A man’s success de-
pends largely upon one prime requisite—and that is
THRIFT. The time to start instilling that requis-
ite is before he becomes a man—as the twig is bent
so is the tree inclined.
A bank account is the best method of learning
thrift as well as the foundation for future happiness
