To The Citizens Of The

School District
The time for paying* school taxes, both current and
delinquent, without penalty or costs, has been extended
to March 1. March 1st is the dead line for payment,
without penalties.
The school district must collect all possible taxes in
order to meet its obligations. It is your duty as a
citizen to meet your tax payment. We cannot afford
to have it said that we fell down on school tax payments.
So let’s all pay our school taxes before March 1.

Dale Miller on “Buy American”.
Worker’s Meeting of
Blanco Baptist Ass’n.
Held Here Tuesday
The “Buy American” campaign waged by the Saturday Evening Post
of popularity because people in small cities and towns are confuting it vat 1
their patriotic slogans, “Buy Home Town”. The susceptibility of the Pub-
lic, to this allegation of terms can perhaps be clarified through illustration.
In Joe T. Cook’s interesting column, in the Mission Times tins paragraph
appeared only a few days ago: “William Randolph Hearst has started
the slogan, ‘Buy American’, England is plastering her country with Buy
British,’ and this town coulcl hardly have a better slogan than Lay
Mission’.” It is of course true 'that Mr. Cook commended only Buy
Mission” and did not commit himself on "Buy Amercran , but it is s »•■
oifioaut that the latter suggested the former tajud (that, at ™ *
minds of the eraders, the association of these terms encourages the Jj-l t
-that. “Buy American” is simply “Buy Mission ’ on a larger scale. Nothing
(eoiild Ibe further from the truth.
Before proceeding to point out the contrast between these two move-
ments, it might be well to reassert The Weekly’s position on Buy Ameuai .
■Opposition ito this campaign has, in brief, -been predicated on_ the f*
that the United States is the greatest exporting nation in the would aud
iliat a boycott of foreign soods would close foreign market’s to American
SSL irab-zf i* world to,do nemytry for both
world prospiesrity. Moreover, the statement made by the Saturday Ev eurm
Pivst that the United tSates is being “flooded with foreign goods was
nrofed by The Weekly’s preesntation of actual import statistics to he palpab >
false. Thus “RuY ■American” is—as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch expresses
-it—‘economic Illiteracy in a most malignant form. <>T> , Hondp
But there are real differences between “Buy-Amerman and Bu^ H^e
Town.” In the first, place, it can lie seen at a glance that because Bu>
American” affects world commerce it 'involves inextricably the economic
attendants of high tariff walls, favorable balances of trade, international
debts, multitudinous monetary standards, fluctuating ratios of exchange, and
,so on-nail of which potently pervade the world commerce that Lv Amer-
ican” Would seek synthetically to regulate, but wtoch. are entirely■ u e -
ivant to movements of such Local character as Buy Homee Toma
In the second place, “Buy American” and -“Buy Home Town should
not be confused for the icsason that they are founded fimdamentallj on the
|r example, a purchaser can, and often does, buy at home
without buying American. The rubber balls, overshoes, and bthei foi. ign
merchandise which .“Buy American” propagandists teU us are flomling the
country are purchased across the 'bargain Icountevs ot home town stoics
with as much, if not. more, profit accruing to the home town merchant as
if oil thus merchandise were produced in America. The success ot the
4uy^-k«Se/^Snt is thus entirely disassociated from the ‘‘Buy Amer-
camnaiffn and when people balk -about ^ Buy American and y
Home Town" the are discussing two entirely different things. Tim forme
is pernicious propaganda portending danger to America it it is Pract ced,
whPe the tatter is a normal civic function, Encouraging—economically the
dlvelo^ment ofhbme Industry and-socially-the stimulation of a progres-
sive community spirit and local prule. _ . ,K1, T
'While this “Buy American” campaign is still m the public mind, 1
should like to propound to its adherents a question which I have, long tclt
tie urge \to adk Briefly, it is this: 'If we have been buying so very
vmicli from foreign (dountries (which these adherents say wit. have), and i
buying American' we will restore prosperity to Anierica (which they^y ^ye
will) why in the name of reason have w|e not brougnf prosperity to tho. e
foreign countries from which we have been buying? It looks to melike t e
expenditure of one sound American dollar would 'exert the same‘J^^ct
one country as it would on another, and. if we have been squandering our
money buying goods from England, 'Prance, and Japan, i confess that I am
rndJntll skerlical that we could restore prwperlty to America when our
our chases abroad have not prevented England from toppling ofi the t-pli
standard? France from facing a $400,000,000 deficit, and Japan from sinking
sinking into the deepest financial mlire since the World War.
It occurs to me that movements such as “Buy American reveal a
psychologfiaal tendency to respond in this turbulent period to» tire_f
father tlian the reasonable, to the patriotic rather than the
theoretical rather than the facual. This tendency tells
thing of human nature but likewise something of the c
musit develop if we are to conquer the depression.

take advantage of a “sale,”
reach for your telephone and

No matter what you buy
or sell—whether it is wheat,
