Leaves From a ^respondent's Life Note Book By HAL 80YLE S CITY, Mo.—(y back to the Middle West, 1 ways wonder why people ever tfiigrnte -from here to New York 1 did it myself ten years ago na I still can't make up my mind 'hether it was a good idea. iBSi? the advantages that living fi.Mfchhatah once had over life 1 inland towns and cities have retty well disappeared. The difference used to weigh eavlly.ln favor of New York. Now ie balance tends to swing the ther Way. [ Fifty" years ago the great eastern hetfopolis could feel pretty smug n Its artistic, commercial and cul- ttral superiority over the other gnerican cities. That is no longer ru<5* >Here In the Midwest the leading Ities have their own symphony rchestras. Their women's shops irry Fifth Avenue stylej. The imp programs, the movies, the lagazlnes, the latest books—all are 5 available here as they are in 'ew r York. And the people seem • :,have more time to enjoy them, No longer must the struggling rust sweat out his talent in a ictropolitan garret to win a name, he ."made in Greenwich Village" ibel' Isn't necessary now to sell a rSPRINGS ( Bring your spring troubles to us, We make repairs and rebuild Springs for all cars and trucks.

The satnfe thing Is even inor true of Writers. Many of the bes don't go to New York for material they just drop in occasionally to sign contracts and do their writ ing elsewhere. But the main falling off !n New York life lies In the field of every day creature comforts. Yearly it i getting more crowded, more noisj more trouble to live in. Out here you can have a lawn and a flower bed. In Manhattan you buy a flower pot and let i go at that. Life is expanding and breakin old bonds in the Midwest an^ throughout the rest of the country It is becoming richer and fuller In New York this isn't true in th same manner. The slums clear very slowly, life rides to the subway' grind, and the concrete wildernes presses more heavily upon th spirit. But it would be unfair to Nev< York to say it has nothing to com pensate for the lost spaciousness o living you leave behind when you come to it from the American heart land. There is a throb and puls about Manhattan that, once felt you can never forget. It is a sens of being part of the craziest, most wonderful, biggest and noisies sideshow in history. Whether this feeling makes up for all you give up when you gi there to stay is something I stil haven't figured out after ten years Market Briefs May 28) 30 Indus. 15 rails, 15 nti), oft Pre , **"t WIlilllKt 1 Wcdne.sdav Previous Dny v> eck ARO ., Month ABO i'ear Afro .. 1047 IllEh ..

But you'd be surprised how important a part flowers play in the Hie of Texas. There is, for example, San Antonio's battle of flowers. And Palestine's dogwood trails. The lower Rio Grande Valley has its bougainvillea trail. Timely comments could be made about bluebonnets. In fact, we will comment: Old timers say this year's crop of bluebonnets is the heaviest in years. Martin, holds one of the state's unique celebrations, an annual Texas bluebonnet photo fiesta. It is usually held late in April. Hundreds, sometimes thousands of photographers gather there to take pictures of the gorgeous bluebonncts. And Marlin provides charming voting models to post amid the blossoms. f!he floral 8evelopment Sufi-committee of the farm and Ranch Committee of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce has been experimenting with the marketing of the flowers. It has discovered that 40,000 dozen bluebonnets can be harvested per acre on well-covered fields. These sttme blviebonnets can be delivered in Chicago for six cents a dozen. Trial shipments have been flown to Chicago, Detroit and New York by Slick Airways. New methods of packaging and handling the perishable flowers are being tried. Down at Orange, a quarter of a million red hibiscus blossoms annually will pay silent but blazing tribute to (he men and women who •served in World War II. The Orange chapter of the Texas Roadside Council has set out 1.250 hibiscus shrubs, and Arthur Black, florist, estimates they will bear 250.000 blossoms each year. Then, of course, cue mustn't forget Tyler, the rose capital of the world. The annual rose festival will be f-esitmed this yeaf. it tpffl toe big. There are setbacks to the flower program,- though. Down in Laredo, the Laredo garden club, assisted by other organizations, decided to beautify the entrance to the border city. They set out oleander plants and palms along san Bernardo Avenue. Just after they had finished their difficult job, a gang cf hoodlums made a midnight swoop, Slassen Sees Wallace, Truman Paired in '48 SAN ANTONIO—f/T>)—Henry Wallace as a running mate for Pfesi- pulled up and destroyed over 100 plants. A wave of indignation swept the town, says our Laredo agent. To serve Corn-Soya for breakfasf, that is. This crispy, tasty new ce« real is ready-to-eat.

Get it at your grocer'fc ^ S«lly CORN for flovor and energy Parnpn 1S4? dent Truman in the 1948 presidential elections was predicted here by Harold Stassen. avowed Republican candidate for president. The former governor of Minnesota yesterday asrerted Truman and Wallace would settle their differences over foreign affairs and would itartrto he«4 the Democratic ticket. He-predicted these differences would be settled before the Democratic convention next year. Stassen came 'to San Antonio at the request of Bex-ir County Republicans. He spoke in Houston Monday night. Ainrthtmttl From where I sit ... Joe Marshy Want to'Run a "Collective" Farm?, Was reading the other day about the "collective" farms they have in certain countries. It seems the folks Who run them have plenty of help i . . good hours . . . and the best equipment. Sounds pretty nice — till you learn that the "farmer" doesn't own liis land, or even farm it, in our sense. He takes orders f mm the state; produces whatever they want him to produce, at prices they c-et. Even his off-hours aro spent according to state regulations. No, that would never go here. We're willing to work hard* but like to farm the land oaf o* put our own value on the efopa, and relax as we like—if onljr with a temperate, companionable gifts* of beer. From where I sit, collective farming may produce results. But the American way — freedom to work and relax as we see fit—is what makes this covmtry a great place to live, So let's not change itl Copyright. 1947. i'nlted Statei Brewers foundation $**& ,4 « »JSR THE BEST ANSWER BAKERY Flaky, Tender Crust!
