Dependency on Uncle Sam For Housing Expands Here Decision by the Blytheville Housing Authority to erect another 74 units in BlytheviHe cnme as a rather shocking surprise to many people. On the heels of the announcement to the effect that the group will go ahead with plans for the project, a story regarding another government- in-business venture was passed on to us, The people of California's Central Valley, having persuaded the government to take over a giant irrigation project during the middle 30's, nre now stuck with government control of their irrigated farms and are sick of it. Farmers now realize they'll probably never own a water right, they may be obligated for repayment for life and the Bureau of Reclamation now says it will not make the water available for farms in excess of 1GO acres . . . which means that many of the Valley's farmers will have to sell parts of their holdings. After farmers at one point on the pipeline got up in arms over discovery of 184 leaks, the Bureau brought up 40 tons of horse manure to plug the lenk-s. The story got into the newspapers and some farmers claim they were warned they would be deprived of water if any more bad publicity was forthcoming. Just an example of what can and sometimes does happen when the government gets "in." On completion of this third project, 156 Blythi-ville families will be in government-owned apartments . . . :> minimum of about 150 per- Euns and up lo 70". This situation, duplicated about the nation and growing steadily, contd soon have a large percentage of our population depending on the government for shelter. It's political implications are tremendous, especirvlly in view of the way the government has handled project; like that at California's Central Yallev. welcom* after *& Among the tight lit- tla clrcl« of Republican regulars there were mutterings about "mob rule" and "near-revolutionary" activities. The mildest epithet hurled at the new people was "renegade DninocrRts." When by sheer weight of numbers the upstarts won control of the majority of these preoinct conventions—and the later county conventions an well — the of the regulars was not lo accept gracefully or even joyously this influx of fresh blood. It was lo storm out of meetings all over Texas and name rump delegations of thoir own. There were two reasons. One was simply that they did not wish !o see their long-established control of the party fall into other hands. The other was that the newcomers espoused the presidential cause of General Eisenhower, while regulars mostly favored Senator Tafl. Eisenhower supporters captured a substantial majority of the county delegates to the Texas state convention. By all normal measures, Hie General therefore should 1 have gained a big edge in delegates to the national convention at Chicago. But he did not. For the parly regulars controlled the slate convention machinery. And by the simple device of throwing out more than 500 Kisenhower delegates and seaUng Taft delegates in tlieir stead, the regulars turned the tables and delivered the convention to Taft. They did not even put the garb of fair play on this maneuver. They just asserted that wherever majorities were against them they were Democratic majorities and hence illegal. To the outsider, it sounded as if they were saying if you were not for Taft you could not possibly be H Republican. Many Republicans say that what they have done is bad for Taft, for the Republican Party and for the nation. They believe the Texas regulars have made a sham out of their own alleged concern for attracting Democrats -assuming any sizable share of the Eisenhower delegates were Democratic, which Is 'jnpi'oved. To outsiders in Republican ranks it also appears the Texas old guard has flouted Texas law and GOP party rules —these last of their own making. There is no hint Taft himself was a party to all this, though his managers were on the scene at Mineral Wells. Indeed, some quarters are saying he ought to repudiate the convention action as a scandalous defianee'of Good American tradition. The Texas• affair contaminates the hard-fought battle between Taft and Eisenhower. It would be a great misfortune should the 38 Texas delegate votes prove decisive at Chicago. A nomination won or tost by such unfair tactics would be a questioned prize. Con We Ride Out This flood?
