Agriculture afforded almost as
much support to business during
1958 as construction. Prelimin-
ary estimates of farm income for
1958 indicate that it may be 18
per cent larger than 1957. An in-
crease of 5 per cent in prices re-
ceived by farmers has contribut-
ed to this rise.
Texas farm income from the
sale of crops is estimated to be
28 per cent higher than in 1957
while the income from livestock
and products is estimated to be
about 6 per cent higher. All ma-
jor Texas crops produced a larg-
er income in 1958.
Preliminary ’ estimates indicate
that industrial production was
below the 1957 level although
gains have been made since the
spring low point. For 11 months
of 1958, industrial power con-
sumption was 9 per cent below
Manufacturing employment in
November was 1 per cent above
October but was 4 per cent below
a year ago. Production of oil was
dow n 15 per cent.
The bureau said the condition
of the oil industry is the most
serious element in the present

ALCORN LOOKS FORWARD TO ’59
PREPARED TO HANDLE PROGRESS
Editor’s note: Achln Al-
corn, philosopher on his
Johnson grass farm on Sul-
phur, has found out a new
year has arrived. Obviously
somebody gave him a calen-
Dear Editar: A lot of people,
especially those who worry about
the hydrogen bomb, were afraid
1959 wasn’t going to get here, but
if you’ll look outside you’ll notice
it’s here, and I have an idea New
Years will, keep on coming,
there’s not a thing man can do to
And as usual, most people are
•making resolutions and mapping
plans for the next twelve months,
except me I don't intend to
change much. It’s not that I
couldn’t, I just don’t want to.
I will go as far as to say though
that I will match Washington
when it comes to financial plan-
ning. According to an article I
read last night, Washington offi-
cials, in looking over the pros-
pects for the new year, have tak-
en a confident attitude and have
announced the Federal govern-
ment “will come as close as pos-
sible to balancing the budget.”
Now that’s the kind of plan-
ning I admire, and I don’t mind
saying I will get up on the Wash-
ington level in regaid to my own
financial affairs in 1959. I too
will come as close as possible to
balancing my budget, and in pro-
portion to size, I’ll bet I don’t
miss much further than Wash-
At any rate, I’d like to say I
have enjoyed writing for readers
of your newspaper during 1958,
and am looking forward to get-
ting their minds off of serious
things again in 1959. It beats
I don’t know any more about
what the future holds than any-
body else, but Tm banking on
human nature's standing up
against anything that turns up.
Human nature has stood up un-
changed against the airplane, the
radio, television, automobiles,
central heating, air conditioning,
public and private debt, time
payments, progressive education,
cake mixes, the hydrogen bomb,
etc., and I believe it can do the
same against guided missiles,
space travel, foreign cars, infla-
tion, Russians, and rain or drouth.
Human nature has a habit of
swallowing up all progress and
coming out about the same. I
don’t see any reason why it
should change much in 1959.
Personally. I’m looking forward
to the next twelve months. I can
take anything science has to of-
fer without being swept off my
feet. It’s hard to sweep a man
off his feet when he’s sitting
down my way.
Yours faithfully, A. A
