The fine rain covering this section
Thursday is said to have completely
soaked the ground, making wheat
sowing conditions ideal, greening up
the pastures for fall and winter
grazing, and some predict it will help
late cotton—and another good thing
is the way the air cooled off to make
living conditions more pleasant.
Superintendent and Mrs. W. D.
Raley and son, Harlan Lynn, returned
home Saturday after their several
weeks stay in Austin while Mr. Raley
was j taking some special work at The
University of Texas. About the first
work to perform after his return was
the calling of the school board to-
gether for the purpose of electing a
teacher to succeed Mrs. G. E. Mc-
Caleb, teacher of English in high
school. Miss Lottie Bettis who has
been teaching in the Vernon high
school for a number of years and
whose home is here, was elected to
fill the place.

that a just price is paid for the cot-
ton, but it is equally important to
Northern business and industry that
the South has money to purchase the
former’s manufactured products,”
Senator Tom Connally of Texas said
“The price of cotton is fixed in t
world market where cotton from oth
er sections of the world compete, thus
a protective tariff for the American
cotton farmer is ineffective. However,
continued Senator Connally, “since
the farmer pays the protective tariff
on articles he consumes, it is only
fair that he should receive some ben-
efit payment to offset the tarifT bur-
dens which have been placed upon
“It was with the above situation in
mind that Congressman Marvin Jones,
Chairman of the House Committee on
Agriculture, and myself sponsored
an amendment to the Agricultural
Adjustment Act, which was adopted
and is now law, providing that thirty
per cent of all revenues from tariff
duties should be set aside by the Sec-
retary of the Treasury each year in a
special fund, and thaf such funds
should be available to the Secretary of
Agriculture to pay farm benefits in
the form of price adjustments on ag-
ricultural commodities. The primary
motive behind the amendment was to
aid cotton growers.
*‘,‘For the year 1936 thirty per cent
of the customs duties amounted to
3125,000,000, a portion of which has
already been allocated for benefit
payments to other agricultural crops.
There is now in the fund approxi-
“During the session of Congress
just ended, I introduced and strongly
urged the passage of a resolution
which would have paid each cotton
producer in 1937 a benefit payment of
1-2 cents per pound from the above
fund. The resolution was not passed
because President Roosevelt and the
Secretary of Agriculture in the mean-
time agreed to put into effect a sim-
ilar plan allocating money for cotton
growers from the above-mentioned
fund of $105,000,000. Such action
substantially the same that aided the
cotton farmer in 1935, is a matter of
simple justice to the cotton producer
who pays high prices due to a protec-
“President Roosevelt has demon-
strated that he is a friend of the
farmer, and I am most happy to be
one of the authors of the provision
making possible the benefit payments
to the cotton farmers.”
Senator Connally discussed the sit-
uation with President Roosevelt per-
sonally immediately following the ad-
journment of Congress.
Jake Ogle, age 68,______
in the Fairy community last Satur-
day after a brief illness, and the fu-
neral services were conducted Sunday
afternoon at 2:30 o’clock from the
family residence with the pastors of
the local Baptist and Methodist
Churches assisted by Rev. J. P. Gil-
liam of Clifton, officiating; the Ma-
sonic fraternity having charge of the
services at the grave. Members of the
Clifton Masonic Lodge were in
charge of the service with H. P.
Jones conducting, assisted by other
members from here and surrounding
territory; deceased having been a
member of the Baptist Church and
Masonic Lodge for many years.
Mr. Ogle was bom in the commun-
ty where he died and spent his en-
tire life as a .citizen of the highest
standard in that community. He is
survived by his widow and two
daughters, and other relatives.
The Magnolia Oil Company which
recently bought the residence of Mrs.
Chris Solberg on the corner lot just
across the street from the Humble
Station on what is known as Sim-
mons’ Corner, this week razed the
house on the lot preparatory to erect-
ing a modern filling station some
time in the future, but it is not known
when, as it is reported that the pro-
ject may be delayed to know' more def-
initely about the completion of the
highway through the city in order to
arrange the frontage to better suit
the traffic, it is said. This will be an-
other added improvement to our city
and the investment will run quite
Last week the Rising Star Record
came out with a special 28-page his-
torical edition; the results of several
weeks of labor by M. S. Sellers, pub-
lisher, and his son, Wayne, editor of
this paper. The historical sketches
are very interesting even to one not
acquainted in the Rising Star section,
and shows much painstaking efforts
on the parts of the Messrs. Sellers.
The mechanical appearance of the
edition is excellent, and the business

MRS. ARTHUR ABEL
Mrs. Arthur Abel, nee Willie Ada
Martin, died after a long illness in her
home in Coahoma, Texas, last Friday,
August 27, 1937. Her remains were
carried to Turners vllle, Saturday,
August 28 and placed to rest beside
relatives in the cemetery there.

bereaved relatives. *
Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Standefer and
son, John, completed their very inter-
esting and delightful trip through
west Texas, Mexico and Colorado
when they returned home last Friday
night. On their return home they
stopped in El Paso for a short visit
with relatives and friends and from
there were accompanied home by a
nephew, Master Channing Brown, Jr.,
who is spending a short while here
as their guest. They also returned
home by way of Camp Waldemar near
Kerrville and brought home their
daughter, Jane, who had just com-
pleted several weeks stay in that well
known girls’ camp. Their last stop
before reaching home was Friday
evening when they reached Valley
Mills. There it was their privilege to
have a part in the celebration of the
81st birthday of Mr. A. A. McNeill,
Sr., the father of Mrs. Standefer. A
dinner was given in his honor and he
was the happy recipient of numerous
useful gifts which added cheer to his
part of the celebration. The finest part
of it all was that at Mr. McNeill’s
advanced age he was one of the most
active members of the party, and on
Sunday following he came up to Clif-
ton and played his usual eighteen
holes of golf and at the end of the
game was seemingly the least tired
of the several players who went the
two rounds with him—regardless of
VOTING SCANDAL SEEN FOR
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Washington, Aug. 27.—A member
of the house high command disclosed
today an investigation is under way
of reported recording of votes on
house roll calls of representatives
known to have been out of town.
He was unwilling to be quoted by
name, but said there was “evidence
of a major scandal.” Legislators who
were in other parts of the United
States or Europe, he said, have been
listed as voting.
He added that house leaders were
determined to learn how extensive the
practice has been and to fix the re-
Preliminary checks, he said, have
disclosed perhaps half a dozen instan-
ces of illegitimate absentee voting.
Another individual holding a key
house post said two members had
asked him at different times to have
their votes cast on major bills while
they were not in Washington, but he
While declining to mention names
or let their own be used until the in-
quiry is finished, these leaders said it
was “extremely dangerous” for a
membfer to have his vote cast by an-
other and could result in expulsion of
both from congress.
As part of the investigation, tally
clerks have been asked to check their
records with lists of members who
were away from Washington during
the last session.

CHILDREN WHO SEE WELL,
Many children go for years with
headaches, cross dispositions, and
poor marks in school without their
parents even knowing the source of
the troubles—defects of vision that
could easily ,be corrected. Give your
child an even break at success. Have
his eyes examined before school
starts. Will be at Carpenter’s Drug
