as possible- The Herald has been advocat-
ing this policy for several weeks despite
some criticism of the policy.
By getting a vast reduction in the new
cases in the state, it s.hould not be long

A CONFUSED WORLD
The war is causing a lot of confusion in
the thinking of many persons. Read the
letter in the open column of The Herald
and see the various thoughts running
through the blind of a reader. He is re-
garded as highly successful in his business,
yet he is in an upset condition.
Although he accuses the press of a Jack
______of sincerity in its work, you will note that
Advertising Rates 1 he blames war on old men. Hitler today
obituaries, resolutions of respect, cards of thanks, etc. 2 ! js about 55 years old and Mussolini reach-
cents per wor . e(j 60 recently, while Stalin is about the
same age. Yet those men were much youn-
ger when they went intd power.
WINNING THE FIGHT
Indications are that the battle against
infantile paralysis is being won in Texas.
A recent report showed that the number
of new cases dropped about one-half from
the previous week.
Yet, the number of cases reported was
more than 50. Probably many cases did
not .get reported promptly to health au-
thorities, but there are indications that the
fight for sanitation is going to get results-
' ' Children under 18 years of age in Car-
son county were advised this week to stay
away from the picture shows; also, to
ayoid Sunday school and public gather-
ings. That is a splendid recommendation
of the health officer and should do much
to prevent any possible epidemic getting
started in Carson county.
With so many cases reported from
neighboring counties, it would be a good
WAR BOND DRIVE
The Third War Bond Campaign will
begin next week. The Treasury department
has Risked The Herald to do all it can to
put over the bond drive in Carson county.
The task of raising $$580,200 in Carson
county is a big one with around $87-50 per
person to be raised. As there are hundreds
of persons who will be unable to buy
bonds, that means that many will have to
take up this slack.
For that reason there will be a well-
organized campaign to get every person to
buy' another $100 bond, especially those
persons with steady income positions-
Others with larger incomes will have to
buy bonds in larger quantities.

Planting Good Quality Wheat Varieties
Proves Profitable to Farmers
Texas Flour Mills report the increase in good
quality wheat in the state has enabled them to
better enter into highly competitive markets, thus
bringing about a greater jdemand for Texas
wheat. Extra demand for Texas wheat is con-
ducive to better market prices and higher protein
premiums. Those few communities in the state
producing a high percentage of off-quality wheat
have experienced lesser demand for their wheat
and lower protein premiums.
The U. S. D. A. and the State Agricultural Ex-
periment Stations recommend only the high qua-
lity COMANCHE, TENMARQ, TURKEY, and
KANRED varieties and the intermediate quality
STANDARD BLACKHULL variety for the hard
wheat area of Texas.
For sources of good wheat contract your county
agricultural agent, local elevator dealer, or the
Texas Wheat Improvement Association.

POURS IT ON PRESS
AND MAKERS OF WAR
Editor The Herald:
Having a peculiar twist of my
own, there are lots of things
about the publishing business that
wouldn’t suit me: You must al-
ways keep your paper in the pro-
per position to receive advertising'.
You are in the same position as
a civic club. (I have rather a poor
opinion of civic clubs.) A civic
club an sponsor or back anything
that isn’t likely to cause a con-
troversy. They mustn’t do any-
thing that would be against a big
business, a church, a lodge or a
political organization. Whatever
they do must be a wishy washy,
Your papers are the same. You
must shout for whatever the thing
is that they want you to shout for.
You must write editorials along
a popular vein. I notice in the
upper right hand corner of your
paper, “To Hell with-Hitler, Mus-
solini and the Mikado.” That’s just
kid stuff. You can’t push them
aside in that manner. They rep-
resent a trend, a growth, a mass
psychology. They didn’t make it.
They rode the crest.
All things in this world have
a price. The world situation today
is the price we are paying for
our own unfairness. We talked
of our greatness, of our democra-
cy. Yet have kicked and held,
lish (we follow them like a baby
skunk fellows its mother) have
held every nation possible in as
low a state of civilization as pos-
sible to get some revenue from
them. The Dutch among the' other
English satellites had control ov-
er millions of people. For what
reason? Just revenue. The United
States was a sort of hanger on to
Any combination such aS the so-
called English speaking nations
had will bring counter combina-
tions. If this war ends tomorrow,
the victors cannot be fair with
the peace they will offer. Victors
in wars cannot be fair. The peace
they will make will be just the
start of another combination to
break the stranglehold that peace
will have made.
Why French Policy?
Look at the political situation
of the French. We unseat one
group and seat another. We think
we have been smart and that we
have done a noble act. What do
we know about their mental
makeup. What do we know of*
their history? What do we know
of the reasons that caused them
to take the road that they did?
It hasn’t been long since we had
a famous committee looking in
every corner for communists. It
looked like it was goirfg to be a
jail sentence to be one. Now look
at us. No, Dave, war can’t be
laughed off with “To Hell with—”
Wars are made by old men.
They are the ones that put chips
on their shoulders. They are the
ones that shout what we are go-
ing to do if you do such and such.
Did you ever see a rat that was
trying to run to get cornered. He
will fight and he will fight hard.
That is just what the ruling na-
tions have been doing to Italy,
Germany and Japan and Russia.
Don’t think Russia is any friend
"Old Men Maks War"
The wars are made by the old-
er men. Listen on any street cor-
ner and you will hear what we
are going to do. But all of them
don’t mean we. They mean some
young man who had nothing to
do with it. This young man will
be taken and drilled, and coached,
and drilled and coached to KILL.
The other young men (your enemi-
es is in the same boat. He has been
coached and drilled. As men, as
humans, as fellow beings on this
earth we have nothing against
each other. But, we have been
victims of a system of war. The
old men do the shouting. The
young men do the killing and the
dying. In practically all wars
when soldiers are not under or-
ders, and when half a chance is
presented, they fraternize.
This world starts making prog-
ress and then comes war. And so
history goes on and on and re-
peats itself. The strong nation at
a certain period of history is the
weak one in the next period.
Strength breeds combinations
against it that finally win. Per-
haps Russia will make aUnited
Europe . Perhaps England will not
longer be able to set up buffer
states. In either event peace
might last a long time. But the
kind of a system that we have in
the past will not make peace. The
so-called Four Freedoms of
Roosevelt and Churchill are just
pure dribble. Neither of them
mean it. Churchill wants England
on top and will put her there or
bust everything if he doesn’t.
Son Is In Service
I was drafted in the last war.
My son is somewhere in the Pa-
cific. When I was drafted, they
put a Bible in my hand. What a
joke! A book that is preached as
peace. Millions of people profess
to be Christians. “Thou shalt not
Sa, Dave, I couldn’t be much
cf a newspaper man. I couldn’t
play the game. Liquor ads for in-
stance. Are the millions of dol-
lars spent on liquor and cigar-
ette ads to help humanity? I’m a
little bitter about the whole bus-
iness. But remember “Peace” will j
never be made with the sword.
The radio, motion pictures and
newspapers with magazines have
done a big job of selling this war
to the U. S. Starting shortly after
Great Britain declared war, all
of this propaganda has done a job
that would have warmed Hitler’s
or Muss’s heart. All the time that
congress was trying to keep us out
by legislation, the drums were get-
ting in their beat. The temp was
slow and easy, but it was there
when Roosevelt was talking about
Program Led to War
Well “he hated war" and prom-
ised our boys would not go over-
seas, his every action was just the-
opposite. His program could lead
only to war. He gave away our
battleships. He sent troops to Ice-
land. The newspapers and radio
beat the drums. The motion pic-
tures with their subtle propagan-
da woven in their pictures helped
the Goddess cf War.
You all did a good job. You
turned the thoughts of a nation
from one direction to another.
Any dictator would feel proud of
you. Another reason why your
profession wouldn’t appeal to me.
It’s a funny world. Only a few
steps from our own American In-
dians. They fought mostly for fun
or necessity. We fight for what?

letter was written by an occasion-
al reader of The Herald. He does

will have plenty of those good
fryers and hens for our week-end
shoppers. We have sold hundreds
the past few weeks. Not only have
they been good eating, but they
have saved these precious meat
points. To give you the needed
change of diet, we will have fish
this week for you; not quite as
large an assortment as we have
had in recent weeks. As to meat,
we hope to have plenty during the
week-end but at the time this was
written we did not have too much
encouragement from our pack-
ers. If we can get the fresh beef
and pork, we’ll have it ready for
you when you wish it. Bananas
are coming in more often. If you
have had a scarcity of this fruit
in your home, now is the time
to get a supply. Bess Pruitt is on
the job all the time trying to keep
an assortment of groceries, meats
and vegetables that will please ev-
erybody. We’ll have a fine varie-
ty of fresh fruits and vegetables
this week-end; so come in and
get the assortment that you want
for your Sunday dinner. Some
lines are getting shorter, but
there is always a suffiicent variety
to make it worthwhile to shop
often at Grahams.
Folks, it looks like raisins and
prunes are going to be rationed
next week. Always, there are a
few changes in the rationing pro-
, gram, but Grahams tries to keep
informed about what is going on. j
| Well, friends, school is almost
I here and Grahams is the place to
j buy the food for growing young
j people. We invite the trade of par-
I ents, teachers and students. We
welcome them for the opening of
a nw school term Monday, Sept.
13. By the way, take a look at the
drug sundry merchandise at Gra-
hams. A large variety for your
convenience. This department is
getting more popular every week,
as our stock is fairly complete.
Shop at Grahams where vour bus-
iness is always appreciated. Our
business has been most satisfac-
tory because we have tried to
please our customers every time
they have entered the store. Re-
member, Grahams has proper re-
frigeration and keeps the perish-
ables in top top condition. Get
ready for the Third War Bond
campaign, which begins Thurs-
day, Sept. 9. Carson county has a
quota of $580,200, large sum, that
will take plenty of work by ev-
erybody to sell. So long. GRA-

Through these hectic days and busy nights,
troop trains, regular trains with troop cars,
and freights loaded with war raaterials keep
rolling along the Santa Fe.
Watch a section hand grab his pick a little
tighter after a trainload of American fighting
boys has rolled past. “We’ll-get-’em-through”
is his attitude these days.
Yet—he is only one of more than 60,000
employes on the Santa Fe who are doing their
bit to “keep ’em rolling” all along the line ...
moving millions of troops and millions of tons
of materials needed for Victory, where and
when they are needed. I
They know that if you stop the wheels that
move them, you stop everything that floats and
flies as well! i
And they never forget that thousands of
boys in our armed forces came from Santa Fe
ranks and from the families of Santa Fe em-
ployes, and these boys who are fighting for all
of us have the toughest job of all! i
You bet, we’re backing them up in the best
way we know—and that’s by buying War
Bonds, and seeing to it that movements essen*
