Judge Ehlinger joined the county
judges at Austin, Tuesday and was
present at the open meeting of the
Committee on Common Carriers, held
in the Senate chamber that day.
The attendance, according to Judge
Ehlinger, was very large, it being
necessary to vacate the regular com-
mittee room to accommodate the vis-
itors. Protests were made, vigorous
and firm, against the enlargement of*
trucks for use on our highways. It
was pointed out to the House Com-
mittee that these trucks were des-
troying the highways that had been
built by taxing the farmers and busi-
ness men, and that the permit to
truck owners, to operate these vehi-
cles carrying more than 7,000 pounds
would mean a destruction of the high-
ways that have proven such conven-
ience to the general public.
It was also brought out, that in
many instances the present loads
carried by trucks was in excess of
7000 pounds. These were contentions,
but were presented with force and
argument against the increase of
traffic weight. Minor complaints,
mostly personal, and references to
“road hogs” will have no material
effect on the committee, those present
all seemed to oppose the increase in
freight weight by truck, carried over
the State highways.
Judge Ehlinger was also present in
the House when the Moore resolution
was presented and voted upon, and
heard the arguments in favor of the
resolution. This is the resolution re-
ferred to in another article in the

farmers who are willing to swap.
Registered Jersey heifers are being

be the only trades day, but that the
success of this day will help to make

“YOU’RE TELLING ME!
All this political jussy-footing on the part of candi-
dates during the pre-election period last year, all the
promises some of the “aspirants for congressional honors”
made, and all the hue and cry generally raised by the loud-
mouthed curbstone orators, dwindles to mere belching of
gas, when the reader takes the terse and straightforward
message of President Roosevelt to heart. Here is what
he said to Congress last Friday:
“The Nation is deeply gratified by the immediate
response given yesterday by the Congress to the necessity
for drastic action to restore and improve our banking sys-
tem. A like necessity exists with respect to the finances
of the Government itself, which requires equally courag-
eous, frank and prompt action.
“For three long years the Federal Government has
been on the road toward bankruptcy.
“For the fiscal year 1931 the deficit was $462,000,000.
“For the fiscal year 1932 it was $2,472,000,000.
“For the fiscal year 193& it will probably exceed $1,-
“For the fiscal year 1934, based on the appropriation
bills passed by the last Congress and the estimated reve-
nues the deficit will probably exceed $1,000,000,000 unless
immediate action is taken.
“Thus we shall have piled up an accumulated deficit
“With the utmost seriousness I point out to the Con-
gress the profound effect of this fact upon our national
economy. It has contributed to the recent collapse of our
banking structure. It has accentuated the stagnation of
the economic life of our people. It has added to the ranks
of the unemployed. Our Government’s house is not in
order and for many reasons no effective action has been
taken to restore it to order.
“Upon the unimpaired credit of the United States
Government rest the safety of deposits, the security of
insurance policies, the activity of industrial enterprises,
the value of our agricultural products and the availability
of employment. The credit of the United States Govern-
ment definitely affects these fundamental human values.
It, therefore, becomes our first concern to make secure
the foundation. National recovery depends upon it.
“Too often in recent history liberal governments have
been wrecked on rocks of loose fiscal policy. We must
avoid this danger.
“It is too late for a leisurely approach to this prob-
lem. We must not wait to act several months hence. The
emergency is accentuated by the necessity of meeting
great refunding operations this spring.
“We must move with a direct and resolute purpose
now. The members of the Congress and I are pledged
to immediate economy.
“I am, therefore, assuming that you and I are in com-
plete agreement as to the urgent necessity, and my con-
stitutional duty is to advise you as to the methods for
obtaining drastic retrenchment at this time.
“I am not speaking to yop in general terms. I am
pointing out a definite road.
“The last Congress enacted legislation relating to the
reorganization and elimination of executive agencies, but
the economies thus to be effected are small when viewed
in the light of the great deficit for the next fiscal year.
” They will not meet the pressing needs of our credit situa-
tion. Provision for additionffU-saving is essential, and
therefore I ahi asking the Congress today for new legisla-
tion laying down broad principles for the granting of pen-
sions and other veteran benefits, and giving to the execu-
tive the authority to prescribe the administrative details.
We are unanimous in upholding the duty of the Govern-
ment to care for those who suffer in its defense and for
their widows and orphans. The application, however, of
this great principle to large numbers of people involves
complications—so great that it is almost impossible to
draw legislation with sufficient flexibility to provide sub-
stantial justice in varying situations. The proposed legis-
lation states the principles and, limited by them, permits
the executive to draw the lines of differentiation neces-
sary to justice. ’ 1
“In accord with the same purpose of substantial jus-
tice I request also the enactment of legislation relating to
the salaries of civil and military employes of the Govern-
ment. This would repeal the existing furlough plan, sub-
stituting therefore a general principle and authorizing the
executive to make application 6£ this principle. The proper
legislative function is to fix the amount of expenditure,
the means by which it is to be raised and the general
principles under which the expenditures are to be made.
The details of expenditure particularly,,‘Tin view of the
great emergency can be more wisely and equitably ad-
ministered through the executive. The flexibility of the
measures whieh I am proposing is not I only practical but
proceeds along the road of constitutional government.
“Such economies which can be made will, is is true,
affect some of our citizens; but the failure toYnake them
will affect all of our citizens. The very stability of our
Government itself is concerned and when that is con-
cerned the benefits of some must be subordinated to the
needs of all.
“When a great danger threatens our basic security
it is my duty to advise the Congress of the way to preserve
it. In so doing I must be fair not only to the few but
to the many. It is in this spirit that I appeal to you. If
Congress chooses to vest me with this responsibility it
will be exercised in a spirit of justice to all, of sympathy
to those who are in need and of maintaining inviolate the
basic welfare of the United States.
“I ask that this legislation go into effect at once
without even waiting for the beginning of the next fiscal
year. I give you assurance that if this is done there is
reasonable prospect that within a year the income of the
Government will be sufficient to cover the expenditures
of the Government.”

USED THE SHOTGUN TO DRIVE
Monday night, at 8:30 o’clock, as
he sought to go .through his rear
yard to a neighbor, Fritz Koopmann
noticed that someone was standing in
the alley that runs alongside his
property, presumably watching the
W. J. Logan store to the north of
the alley and across the street. Fritz
didn’t think of that, he thought of
the chickens he was feeding daily and
which were ,in the hen house where
the man was standing.
Back to the house he went, got the
shotgun, loaded It and walked silent-
ly back 16 the spot where the party
was standing. Shortly after the
lights in the Logan store were extin-
guished, the party moved toward the
store building. Nervous, or other-
wise, Fritz's finger closed down on
the shotgun trigger and—blooey, the
night prowler took to hie heels. As
he ran up the alley and reached the
street, an automobile suddenly came
up and when it passed the alley, no
one was in sight.
Surmises are not worth a continen-
tal; still, we will hand it to Frits
that he did the right thing. The
party who was shot at has not com-
plained to the city marshal nor the
sheriff that someone sought to make
it unpleasant for him.

There were four additions to the
