PAGE EIGHT EDITORIAL THE PAMPA DAmY NEWS, Pfifflpa, TexSg RAILROAD ENTERS BUS FIELD There is food for thought In the announcement of W. E. Fuller, vice-president of the Burlington Lines, that his system is about to enter the "transportational" bus field. Eventually, if the trend to highway transportation continues, some limitation will have to be placed on the number of commercial vehicles on the roads or new highways reserved for such vehicles must be constructed. Moreover;what would happen if the government should have to take over the railroads is interesting to contemplate. Uncle Sam ! does not permit competition, as his postal authorities have demonstrated. It may be possible that the railroads, by entering the bus field, hope to bring the problem to the point of solution. At any rate, here is Mr. Fuller's statement: "Rumors that were rife when this railroad placed new-type streamline buses in service between Chicago and Omaha last summer, and which became predictions when the Ch'icago-Denver run was established during the autumn, are now confirmed by the announcement that streamline bus service on a tri-weekly schedule will be inaugurated between Chicago and Los Angeles To be gin with westbound ]buses will leave Chicago Monday, Wednesday and Saturday over a route through Davenport and Des Moines, Omaha, Cheyenne and Salt Lake City, and it is understood that the through mileage will be somewhat, shorter than that of any other commercial highway route to Loa Angeles. "The Burlington Transportation company bus which leaves Chicago at 9:15 a. m. next Monday morning will reach Los Angeles at G o'clock Thursday morning, thus reducing the best existing highway running time by several hours. y •o u"n he " ew California service over a route through Rochelle, Sterling, Rock Island, and Des Moines does not presage the abandonment of the Burlington's highway service to Omaha and Denver through Mendota, Pj-inceton, Oalesburg, Burlington, and the southern tier of counties in Iowa. On the contrary, the Burlington will continue to run its buses over this route to Denver and will have service between Chicago and Omaha via two distinct routes." TEXAS HISTORY Brushing \3p on Ffttta You Ought to Retail The "Three Hundred" in Austin's colony were aflutter with excitement. There was to be a wedding Jesse CartwrJghfs daughter wns to 3e married that evening to Nicholas McNutt. son of the Widow McNutt who wns one of the first arrivals in Texas. The nlcnlde. Thomas Duke recently elected over Ira Ingram In en votes, was to preside at the cere' mony. since there wns no priest ii he neighborhood. Cartwright wn a member of that first town gov- rnment, the ayuntamiento ii which Duke had been elected, nnd tovernment established from the javaca to the watershed between he Trinity and San Jacinto and rom the sea to the old San An- ,onio road. All the prominent families were nvited to the wedding, which wns to be one of the biggest social events since the founding of the colony. The bride was to wear n lace dress "imported" from the states—one of the few extravagant things brought to Texas by her mother. The wedding supper that followed the ceremony was a gay one, in spite of the fact that there wns no bread, since flour cost $10 a barrel but there was an abundance of wild' fruit, fowls, and seafood There was much jesting: over the signing of the bond which the bride and groom were required to sign in order that , n priest iniitht make their more, legal. Jossc Thompson's nepro fiddler Mose. brought his fiddlers for the I dancing that c-nmn nfter the supper. Ciinpboliem chairs were .pushed back against the wall, small children we;-r put to bod nnd the ymmsr folks danrod for hours, "shuffling," "double shuffling." ''cutting the pigeon's wing." and "cakewnlking."

Altogether, it would be difftcxtH to imagine a mora complicated situation than this wh'ch forms the practical background of Ch;e president's budget message. ii, is recognized generally in'Wash- ington that in framing that.rnes* sage Mr. Roosevelt has sought "to remove some of the cross-currents. He consulted many gi6up§. The general expectation, too, is that he will have his way in the main—that eventually most of his program will become law.

POLITICS THE 3STEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON BY RODNEY DUTCHER NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. — Enemies of economic security measures are relying on a single hope— talking them to death. Koosevelt s idea is to throw his important legislative proposals to Congress consecutively, giving Capitol Hill -line to clean up each one before it gets the next This process saves stalling, sidetracking and mutilation— when it works. Most of the administration crowd hopes unemployment insurance can be rushed through rapidly in that way. But conservatives are secretly working to heac that issue into a maze of committee hearings and com plicated alternative proposals. + TiM e v ta j <e , their clle from the business men's meeting at White Sulphur Springs, wh'ich recommended a "na tionalj. system" — and a lot of time; to consider it. *^ * * ' * :H " Even temporary delay would please the lobbyists The Wagner-Lewis unemployment insurance scheme which Koosevelt and his economic security committee has adopted in principle, lets any state set up its own job insurance system and consequently requires action 'by states iJ lT\^ \ -r°« Sta w le * I8l ? tures are meeting about now and fi lends of the Wagner-Lewis idea would like to iam the measure through this month, so those bodies can act vfn ff e f . is p l'* off> they ar - ue> the s y stem virtu will be delayed two years. BY BYRON PRICE (Chief of Bureau, The Associated Press, Washington.) To spend or not to spend. Ovei this question the new congress finds itself in turmoil even before it has hung up its hat nnd removed its overshoes. Its decision will be delivered piecemeal, as separate bills to carry Mr Roosevelt's budget program into effect come before it. For one thing, that insures a session crammed with controversy from start to finish. On no other issue are so many schools of thought making themselves heard. There are those who oppose further large appropriations because of the effect on the national credit, and those who oppose them because of the, effect on the national morale. Some want to spend large sums as a matter of principle, to "prime the economic pump." Some want big outlays for the political credit they think will be built up back home. Some who do not object to the theory of spending oppose further THE NEWFANGLES (Mbm'ri Pop) spending now because they say it is doing no good. For and Again. The ultimate ramifications of the problem are, at this stage, incalculable. Big business, which seems to have been hesitating whether to go along with the administration or rebel openly, fears the spending program because it suspects it may lead to inflation. Many state and local government? favor it, because they fear that if the federal allotments were cut down, those of the political subdivisions wo.uld have to be increased accordingly. Organization republicans denounce ^e system bitterly because they charge that treasury funds have bad a way of getting into those localities where they would dp the most political good for the party in power. * Public works enthusiasts, work re- ief advocates, the proponents of old-age pensions and a hundred 27 Highway Jobs In Operation In Panhandle Area WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 9, 1936.

By WILLIAMS AMARILLO. Jan. 9. i,y—Twenty- seven highway work relief projects, providing: average full time employment for about 7?0 men. are in operation in this division, nccordin" to W. J. Van London, division highway engineer. After a suspension of several months work of widening highway No. 5 east of Amariilo was resumed this week. Forty men nre emploved on the job. ' Highway 9 through Canyon will be widened from 18 to 50 feet in an effort to relieve traffic congestion there. Grading and bridge work between Hedley and Memphis lias been under way several days, and work between Hedley and Clarendon will start about January 7, Van London said. The Clarendon-Memphis route will be shortened by about two miles. Completion of grading on the Jericho gap is scheduled within the next three weeks. Work on the highway extending ;hree. miles east of Bprger will be finished about January 15. Edwin S.
