feiythevme (Arfc.) Courier News — Monday, March 13, 1987 - Page !"lv» By R. B. Stout Thanks to all the kind people who have asked about my so- called column. I will try as promised to d a s h off a few more at odd intervals. Since we have just emerged from a season's session of local and slate politics, and having elected a Republican governor for the first time since t h e mind of man runneth not to the contrary, a few glances backward at politics as it was played in these parts at the turn of Hie century might be of on | interest. , Personally, I have grown to the point where I can see little difference between the policies and platforms of the two major parties. Most people seem to inherit their politics along with their religion anyhow. • ', As a matter of fact the St. j Louis Globe-Democrat is a Republican newspaper, while the Rochester Republican is a Democratic paper. It just about boils down as in our local primaries to a contest for office '.between the 'Ins' and the 'Outs.' Not so at the turn ol the century, for there were BO acknowledged Republicans here, much less an organized party, other than J. H. Elkins who served as postmaster during 'one or two Republican regimes. An incident will illustrate my point. About where Jack Robinson's gin. now stands there was a smooth, gently sloping bank of sand and clay bordering Lumerate Bayou on the south; an ideal marble shooting ground. (The kids found a way then to amuse themselves without benefit of adult plans, program or expense). A group of youngsters including Blythe Allison, Rush Holli- peter, Arch Lindsey, Ed Borum, Roland Green, Leslie Moore, J. T. Phillips and others used to congregate there right after school in the spring of the year and hold a marble tournament. We were very devilish and played 'for keeps' hoping our our parents wonldn't find out. Anyhow, one afternoon we had three rings going full blast, when a kid rushed up and breathlessly announced that there was a Republican at Elkins-Hicks drug store. The games broke up immediately and we trooped en masse to see him. I m a g i n e our disappoint ment when he looked like any other salesman, no horns, no nothing. Perhaps what marked him as a Republican was a heavy gold watch chain across his vest with a $20 gold piece suspended from it. That sort of costume jewelry would be more unusual today, since it is a high crime ior an American to possess gold. It must be turned in for shipment overseas to our ever needy brethren. F.D.R. took us off the gold standard, L.B.J. took us of! the silver standard and substituted the copper and green ink standard, spiced with a little red. So as the old silent movie j serials wound up, 'to be continued next week.' HarlatpriR-aid ...Just tha ego booster for any shysmoothfo withasprite-ly sense of fashion.
