the Refugio Rotaiy Club at Dod-

the Mission City business men

330 took away the last chance the
farmers and ranchers had for
track load increase in 1939. If he
had voted for the bill, the result
would have been a tie, and the pre-
siding officer could have declared
the bill passed.”
Mr. Mauritz compared the truck
load limit record of the present
Senator to that of a garrison that
faces the foe for a while, only to
lay down its arms and surrender
when victory is in sight.
“As State Senator, I will never
cease to fight for higher truck
load limits until the battle is won.”
Mr. Mauritz said.
“I am in favor of raising the
7,000-pound track load limit to
14,000 pounds. This can be done
without making trucks larger or
interfering with safety on the
The present truck load limit
makes transportation rates high,
Mr. Mauritz says.
It adds to the transportation
bills of merchants, thereby in-
creasing the cost of living.
The higher the shipping cost to
farmers and ranchers, the less
they get for what they sell.
“A 14,000 pound track load limit
would help farmers and ranchers
and decrease the cost of every
thing the consumers buy,” Mr.
Mauritz said. (Please also read

Cow Takes Milk
To the Customer
When Raymond G. Alderman,
daily manager, couldn’t deliver
milk to one of his customers dur-
ing last week’s milk strike he de-
livered a cow instead. Pickets
were patrolling Mr. Alderman’s
dairy when Mrs. Charles Howard,
socialite resident of suburban Win-
netka, demanded milk. “We’re be-
ing picketed,” Mr. Alderman told
her. “We can’t send our trucks
out safely.” “Well, then send me a
cow,” said Mrs. Howard. Mr. Al-
derman did—Anna, a registered
Ayrshire, was delivered to the
Howard estate early Saturday.
She was tethered near the dog
kennel and a dairyman milked her.
Milk beyond the Howard needs
went to neighbors.
