“PAY YOUR POLL!AX
Yol. fit. No.237
t he number of p<>ll taxes paid in Ennis
for 1956 is sure to exceed the number regis-
tered for this year.
The year 1956 will he an important pres-
idential and gubernatorial election year.
The deadline for paying poll taxes is a
long way off, but it is a good idea not to
wait until the last minute because something
may happen to keep you from meeting the
deadline and thus you would be defranehised.
Most, of us would lay down our life in
defense of our Constitutional form of govern-
ment and the right to participate in it.

With such an American stake in

Nationalist-held stronghold will cer-
tainly involve the United States.
The likelihood of such an attack,
in the Pentagon view, is far more
imminent than the peace news out
of Mo cow would indicate. Pentagon
strategists are convinced that the
Chinese Communists are simply
biding their time, that they will at-
tack first. Quernoy and Matsu, later
Formosa. They expect the latter at-
tack before 'he end of 1956.
These strategists point signifi-
cantly to big Chinese Communist
withdrawals from Korea, and they
believe these troops are being mov-
ed to South China, right opposite
Formosa. Despite sunnier relations
m Europe these military prognosti-
cators see war clouds gathering in
the Far East.
In eciet political huddles. GOP
National Chairman Leonard Hall
has serioualy mentioned the possl-
bili'y of running another Eisenhow- ;
er in ca.se Ik" nulls out of the race 1
-the President's brother, Milt, Eis-
enhower ... Hall pointed out
that Ike, hfms'lf, has often remark- j
ed that Milt has the brains of the I
family. Probably no one else lias:
exercised greater influence on the j

so he could be handy with his ad-
vif.'e . . The Chicago Tribune
wing of the Republican party is
cju;i tly building up .upport for Illi-
nois' urbane Sen. Everett Dirksen
in case Ike doesn't, run again. Dirk-
sen will dash head-on with Califor-
nia's beefy Hen Bill Knowland, who
is aI-,o bidding for
backing In the 1950 convention . . .
Friends of Chief Justice Earl War-
ren say he will accept the OOP
nomination If it becomes necessary
to stop Vice President, Nixon. War-
ren is generally considered the
strongest OOP candidate with Ike
'lit ot the picture. The chief justice
has no desire to leave the supreme
court, his friends say, but he would
do it rather than see Nixon ir. the

defense signal system at a plush,
guaranteed annual profit .... It
isn’t often that a high Republican
begs a Democratic chairman to hire
a counsel from his own party. But
that’s exactly what Charles Taft,
brother of the late “Mr. Republi-
can," Sen. Bob Taft, urged Vir-
ginia's Sen. Harry Byrd to do. As
chairman of the Senate finance
committee. Byrd has been getting
along with the former GOP coun-
sel. Serge Benson. Taft complained
that Benson was so high-tariff
minded that he was sabotaging the
Eisenhower trade program. So Re-
publican Taft pleaded with Demo-
crat Byrd to hire a Democratic

Popular Argentine Ambassador Paz

briefly to turn in his resignation,
then buy a house in Washington.

gentina spent eight months in the
US A. on the Pan American mili-
tary board. His .son was educated
here. Many of those around Lonardi
are anti-American, but he isn't .
Roald Dahl, the British airman who
did superintelligence work in Wash-
ington during the war, has been

beautiful actress wife, Pat Neal,

Wayne (lard, the Dallas Morning News editorial writer
and Texas folklorist who lias had four hooks published, gave
the Lions Club some interesting sidelights on the early his-
tory of this area when he spoke this week.
He said when he passed through Hutchins he was re-
minded it was there that Sam Bass held up the Houston &
Texas Central passenger trai nin 1887.
In Ferris, he recalled the Ferris Brick Company’s his-
toric prize-winning nudes.
At Ten .Mile Creek, he was reminded that this was the
home of “Steelriust", Texas’ most, famous quaiterhor.se. At
Bear Creek, he recalled the Farrar place nearby where the
grandparents of Mrs. C. M. Roller and Mrs. T. L. McDonald
of Knnis lived. Here also lived “Shiloh”, Texas’ second most
All of the quarterhorses oil Texas’ famous King Ranch
are the descendents of “Steeldust” and “Shiloh”.
The Farrar home still stands there. Dart of it was built
in 1833. The Farrar family bought it in 1859. Card said it
should be preserved as a historic shrine.
We wholeheartedly agree.
