VOLUME 50, NUMBER 11
ON the Record
By BENNIE O’BRIEN
I have for a long time taken a
certain amount of pride in being
tolerant of other people’s opinions,
but I am beginning to wonder if
too much tolerance is, after all, a
Of racial and religious intoler-
ance, I know I am becoming more
and more intolerant. When one
whose spleen outweighs his heart
condemns a race or a creed, is it
the part of goodness and wisdom
to remain silent while he sows his
seeds of hate ? Of hate we have
more than enough in this world,
and those who cultivate it serve
no good purpose.
In “Head Over Heels,’’ a book
by Msgr. Maurice S. Sheehy,
Washington, D. C., the author
tells of an old pastor who, dis-
turbed about gossip he heard
about members of hiB parish, par-
ticularly the ladies, who, follow-
ing a popular author, expressed
anti-Jewish feelings. One evening
at_the ladies’ sodality he gave, in-
stead of his usual 20-minute dis-
course, the following:
“My Dear Sodalists: In your
devotions I have observed that
you, while praying, seem to spot
a new member of the parish, or to
know when Mrs. Smith has a new
hat or Mrs. Murphy a new dress.
“From some reports I receive, I
fear that if the Mother of Jesus,
whom we honor here this evening,
were to come attired in modern
clothes, some of you would say in
surprise, ‘Why, she looks Jewish.’
“In the name of the Father, and
of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Winning prizes with exhibits of
their projects is becoming a habit
with Celina Future Farmers, as
witness the records rung up at
the Collin County Fair and the
State Fair of Texas.
These boys reflect credit on
their community and upon their
instructor, James R. Mcllroy, who,
by his efforts in introducing pure-
bred Duroc swine into the commu-
nity, is doing much for the farm-
ers about Celina, as well as the
fine lads he is training to be good
stewards of the soil.
Reports are that quail are more
plentiful in this area this year
than they have been in the recent
past. Guy Bunch said last week he
saw a covey at the railway cross-
ing near the.^atet Works here in
town, and Guy Lee noted several in
his back yard.
A number of farmers have al-
so reported an apparent increase
in the quail population.
CELINA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1951
Dies of Injuries
Carl Edward Whitaker, 30, of
Weston, died in a Sherman hos-
pital at 5:10 a. m. Saturday from
injuries received three hours ear
lier when his car collided with
truck on Highway 75, just north
of Van Alstyne.
Highway Patrolmen E. B. Scott
and T. N. Rains said the truck and
the Whitaker car apparently col
lided head-on. The truck, a semi-
trailer owned by a Dallas firm,
was driven by Cordell Richard
Jarratt, Dallas, who was not in
Patrolmen said the drivers were
alone in their vehicles when the
collision occurred. Mr. Whitaker
suffered a fractured neck and
back, broken arm and leg, and lac-
erations about the face and arms.
Mr. Whitaker was born January
21, 1921 in Van Alstyne, a son of
John T- and Roxie Whitaker. He
attended school at Weston and
Celina and was in the armed ser-
vice four years during World War
II, part of the time overseas. Since

As Finis Nears
Late Thursday afternoon, 1,961
bales of cotton from this year’s
crop had been processed at the
two Celina gins, and ginners’ opin-
ions were that the crop was, in the
main, out of the fields.
Estimates of the amount of cot-
ton remaining in the fields ranged
from 10 to 25 per cent.
Many farmers are through pick-
ing, and most of them are practi-
cally trailing the pickers with a
stalk cutter. Most of the transient
pickers who had been in the local-
ity have pulled up stakes and
gone to West Texas.
Cotton was bringing 35% cents

spent about $402 billion since the
end of World War II. This amount
exceeds by $88 billion the total
spent during that war and exceeds
by $235 billion total Federal ex-
penditures for the years from 1789
We have been told that heavy
governmental expenditures are of
no real concern since the peak out-
lay for defense purposes will con-
stitute only around 20 per cent of
the gross national product.
The cardinal test of a nation’s
capacity to bear financial burdens
is to be found ih the willingne
and ability of the taxpayers to
pay the bills. For the current fis-
cal year, it is estimated that taxes
of all kinds—Federal, state and
local—will take more than 30 per-
cent of total national income.
The extent of the drain by gov-
ernment of the people’s income is
graphically presented on the ac-
companying map. In 1929, Federal
expenditures were less than two
thirds of the total income pay-
ments to the inhabitants of Cali-
fornia. In 1938, Federal expendi-
tures were equal to the income
payments of the eleven Pacific and
| Mountain states. For the current
I fiscal year ending June 30, 1952,
it is estimated that Federal ex-
penditures will take the equivalent
of the aggregate income payments
of the Pacific and Mountain states
and, in addition, North Dakota,
South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas,
Oklahoma, Texas, Minnesota, Iowa,
and nearly three-fourths of Mis-
souri. This is shown by the black-
ened area on the accompanying
map. If total state and local ex-
penditures are added, the area
would be extended to include the
remaining portion of Missouri,
plus Arkansas, Louisiana, Ken-
as shown by the erosshatclied sec-’
tion of the map. In other words,
total governmental expenditures
for the current fiscal year will
take an amount equal to all of the
income payments to individuals of
states with a land area that cov-
ers nearly four-fifths of the coun-
try and has an aggregate popula-
tion .of about 62 million persons
and more than 22 million workers.
In order to meet its huge run-
ning expenses, the Government
must collect revenue from all in-
come groups in every nook and
corner of the country, and every
worker is compelled to spend an
increasing amount of time work-

married person with an income of
$5,000 a year would work 34 days
for the Federal Government; one
with $10,000, 43 days; and one
with $50,000, 87 days. A person in
the $100,000 class works nearly
one-half his time for the Govern-
ment;, or more than three times as
long as a person with a $5,000 in-
come. Bradford B. Smith, econo-
