It is the duty of the citizen to support the government
and not the government the citizen.—Grover Cleveland.
“I do not want to live under a philanthropy. I do not
want to be taken care of by the government either directly or
by any instruments through which the government is acting.
1 want only to have right and justice prevail so far as I am
concerned. Give me right and justice and I will undertake to
take care of myself. I will not live under trustees if I can help
it. 1 do not care how wise, how patriotic, the trustees may be.
I have never heard of any group of men in whose hands I am
willing to lodge the liberties of America in trust.”
STATEMENT OF THF1 OWNERSHIP, MANAGEMENT, CIRCULA-

OF MARCH 3, 1H33
Of the Kingsville Record published weekly at Kingsville, Texas for
County of Kleberg
Before me. a Notary Public In and for the State und county
aforesaid, personally appeared K. B. Firard, who, having been duly
sworn according to law, deposes and says that he Is the Editor of the
Kingsville Record and that the following 1b, to the best of his know
ledge and belief, a true statement of the ownership, management (and
If a dally paper, the circulation), etc., of the aforesaid publication for
The refusal of the farmers of the drouth-stricken region '
of western South Dakota to obey the federal reclamation bu-
reau’s proposal for wholesale evacuation of this region is an
encouraging sign of the times. In effect it is a reassertion of
that spirit of independence and self-reliance which, during
the past century, developed the United States of America.,
It is also a warning to those New York college professors led
by Prof. Moley and Prof. Tugwell that the American people:
cannot be regimented into a planned economy and life of pro-
fessorial experimentation. Rather than give up their homes
on the soil they have learned to love and submit to minute|
direction of their lives by the federal government, these
hardy farmers of western South Dakota would endure all of
the hardships of unprecedented drouth and by their own self-
reliance eke out their living in hopes of better times ahead.
As long as such a spirit is prevalent in America the country
as a whole can look forward with confidence to the future be-
cause it indicates that the old American spirit of independ-
ence is still alive, even in places where suffering is most acute.
America will not be regimented into a system of collectives
governed by a few egotistical, impractical intellectuals who
would like to turn the country into a laboratory where they
might experiment on 120,000,000 people as if they were so
many guinea pigs.—Arizona Star (Tucson).

BUSINESS AND SENTIMENT
HOW MANY TAXES DO YOU PAY?
We think of the famous firm of cough-drop manufactur-
ers who put a big placard in their window pointing out how
many different sorts of taxes they have to pay — and, of
course, have to pass on to the buyers of their cough-drops or
else go out of business—are doing a real public service in call-
ing the public’s attention to the layers upon layers of tax bur-
dens which all of us are groaning under.
Here is their list. Federal income tax; Federal excess
profits tax; city tax; county tax; state tax; automobile
license taxes; Federal oil tax; telephone tax; check tax; Fed-
eral capital stock tax; state franchise tax: city, county and
state taxes on plant in another state; Federal gasoline tax;
state gasoline tax; telegraph tax; tax for Code Administra-
tion; processing taxes on six different agricultural items that
enter into their products; state of Indiana tax on foreign cor-
poration; state of Oregon tax on gross receipts; state of
Washington tax on gross receipts.
“We do our part,” remarks the placard. We think every-
body will agree that they do.
Nothing could be more desirable than to have every
man and woman become “tax-conscious.” Of course, taxes
must be paid; but we think it would be a good thing for those ,
who pay them to realize that they are paying them. It might I
make the average man a little more cautious about voting for
local improvements which are bound to add to his tax burden;
a little less enthusiastic for state and Federal programs of
huge expenditures of doubtful benefit to the ordinary citizen.
If every tenant realized that he is paying the landlord’s
taxes, every bridge player understood that he is paying ten
cents tax whenever he buys a new pack of cards, every ciga-
rette smoker remembered that six cents out of what he pays
for his pack of twenty smokes goes to the Government for
taxes, we might not be so reckless about piling up the tax
Sometimes a sense of utter confusion must strike the
average man as he skims over his paper, particularly when he
reaches the financial pages. He will note that Air Reduction j111 »nd livestock exposition for the

that steel operations, though low, have risen several notches,
while the huge U. S. Steel Corporation in August shipped out
substantially more steel than its operations indicated. lie may
see that the number of stockholders in the General Motors
Corporation is increasing. If he is not too dazed, after glanc-
ing at stock and bond tables, and noting rather extensive de-
clines, he may perceive large gains in insurance policies writ-
ten, decidedly hopeful reports from many parts of the coun-
try with respect to retail sales, some evidence that real estate
is renting more freely, that construction contracts are ex-
panding a little, and that any number of companies report
better earnings this year than last. A few stray items, per-
haps that payment of Federal taxes is heavily above last year,
and that municipal tax arrears are being reduced may come
to his attention. There is clear evidence on every hand that
the state of business is decidedly better and more robust than
the sentiment prevailing in financial quarters. It is, of course,
patent that there is nothing resembling the fond hopes of
stockholders, or for that matter, of employes, in the recovery
that has taken place in business. The point is, merely, that
whereas business still is seeking to push up to sunlight,
finance in its numerous forms seems afflicted with a blight.
There is no arguing with frazzled nerves. But it might be
pertinent to point out that finance has not, in the past few
years, done well in its reputed function as a business baro-
meter. Back in May, 1929, business had begun to slip, but
stocks continued onward and upward on a final "bender,” four
months later came the unforeseen catastrophe. Always its -
own worst enemy, may it not be guessing as poorly now? — 1 A New Permanent Wave

al AT ECONOMIC FLEA
A declaration of grievances on the new deal is outlined by
George E. Seholsky in the September issue of the New Out-
look magazine. His declaration is based upon the unfulfilled
promises of the Democratic party’s national platform, the
speeches of the President and the provisions of new deal legis-
lation and the acts of his administration. According to the
gospel of Seholsky the seven cardinal failures of the admini-
stration, based on the promises are:
1. It has failed to put 10 million men back to work.
2. It has been unable to liquefy the frozen assets of pri-
vate capital for industry, trade and commerce.
3. It has failed to reduce expenditures for relief.
4. It has been unable to adjust misunderstandings be-
tween capital and labor.
5. it has failed to adjust price relations between farm
products and manufactured goods.
6. It has been unsuccessful in stimulating the use of
7. It has been unable to achieve a wholesome stimula-
tion of foreign trade.
Thus the opposition leaders of 1934, as those of 1774,
are presenting an ever increasing list of grievances against
their George the Third. Unless Roosevelt II takes these griev-
ances seriously we may expect in 19”f> the formation of radi-
cal groups which parallel those of 1776. And then Lexing-
ton ! But maybe not. We are not a revolutionary people and
so long as a man is doing his l>est and gives us action—even
if he only circulates like a dog chasing his tail and gets no-
where — we give him a chance! But Lord, if F. D. It. would
only slow up at one end or speed up at the other and catch
that miserable economic flea that is itching us these days—
this would be a happier land.—William Allen White, in Em-

DO YOU KNOW—
That for the first time In the his-
tory of the state of Texas a group
of women Is putting on a big fair?
And that the fair marks the reviv-
al after five years of the nationally was repeated
famous Cuero Turkey Trot?
• • •
Three years ago n Business and
Professional Women's Hub was or-
ganized at Cuero and at the sugges-
tion of Mrs. Ellen B. Farmer the
club decided to sponsor a 1934 Tur-
key Trot as its definite civic pro- revival although they are receiving
Ject. The women planned well and splendid cooperation from each
worked hard and the prospects are citizen of Cuero. All hut one com-
that the celebration on November mlttee chairmen are members of
15. lt>, and 17 will be entirely wor- the club. The club was organized
thy of the ones held In the past hv Florence I. Ellis, general chair-
which gained international public- man of the 1934 Turkey Trot and
ity for Cuero us a turkey center.
It Is difficult to believe that the
bird whose fame from the time of
Pilgrim days has rested on its
place on the Thanksgiving dinner
menu could be mobilized and par-
aded through tho main streets of
a small city to the tune of a band
and with thousands of spectators
thronging the sidewalks and cheer-
ing the birds on in their march to
the nation's holiday dinner tables.
That, however, Is what happened
first in 1912 when 15,000 turkeys
found themselves the center of a
gigantic celebration which attract-
ed the governor of the state and
other dignitaries. When the trot
for the sixth time In
1928 it met the same interest that
had been shown in 1912.
South Texas has given a lot of
attention to the Cuero club's plans
for reviving the Turkey Trot. The
woman’s civic club members have
assumed full responsibility for the
