' ' ' * Coming here at the behest of the club, he took about 35 minutes to explain in detail that Boys' Ranch is a home between the reform school and the judge's court—an institution which no doubt is needed in every state. Boys' Ranch is doing good for those restless, misunderstood boys who have been neglected and mistreated at the place they had called home. Out of this Ranch, north of Amarillo, there must come a lot of good that can't be counted in money and well-directed young lives. It now has 78 boys, will soon have'about 100—most of whom are from Texas, and at least one or two from Gray County. Boys' Ranch does not ask a Texas county for anything when a boy is accepted there, but gifts, of course, are acceptable. Farley said $300,000 in property there had been donated by people who saw the motive behind the program. Asked just what was his motive in appearing before the local club, he said he was not asking anything. But he left the way open for help, help especially, with a couple of improvements now in the paper plan. Calling Boys' Ranch the Panhandle's project, he left the way wide open for help from people of this community who are able to help, and can see the possibilities for good. Fat-ley's message should be taken to every citizen in the Panhandle, so that each one of them coiild conceive the truly remarkable work being done there. It is well worth the time of the beneficent to look into this program at Boys' Ranch. PRINCIPLE AND PRACTICE Everybody seems to be in favor, of government economy. But Congress hasn't yet proposed a budget cut that wasn't greeted with howls of protest from one quarter or another. However, this is not to be wondered at. Everybody is dead set against toothaches. But that fact doesn't make most folks relish a trip to the dentist any more. Texas Today By JACK RUTLEDGE AP Staff Writer A Texas housewife who catapulted into a career when her husband dropped dead on the floor of the Legislature almost a quarter of ci century ago today stands as an example of what a woman of ability can do in a man's world. She is Mrs. Lee J. Rounlree, who controls the Bryan Eagle and runs it with a firm hand. She has served a term in the Legislature, she was the first wom- larrin Texas to become president of 1 the Chamber of Commerce. She served as Texas vice-president of the National Editorial Association. She was an officer in the Texas Editorial Association. She has been a leading civic spirit in Bryan. When she added the leased wire of the Associated Press to her paper recently she became the only woin- aiv in Texas with such a setup. She won't tell her age. Why should she, she asks, "as long as I pair fool 'em? as long as I have spirit, I'm not old." She doesn't smoke, drink or curse, and she says she's one oi' the last QUJCKIES By Ken Reynolds should run a News Want Art on doing plastering, AJvin — you've had lots of experience 'plastered'!" of the women to wear white petticoats. She's active, alert, progressive, and lias a fascinating habit of emphasizing a point with a wink in which her whole lace cooperates. Her fiivsi name is Prnncis, but her friends call her Pan, o name she acioptecl as a child when she discov- eci a Negro washwoman working for them was named Francis, too. She was born in the wide open .spaces on a ranch in Llano County. After her marriage, she devoted her lile to becoming u good housewife. Thr-n suddenly, in 1923, her husband ciied. She had hud no experience in newspaper work, but she decided to continue her husband's paper in Bryan. She- found she knew more about it than she realized—"It's remarkable how much you absorb without knowing- it." The hardest thing she had to learn was "how to take it," she says. Rubbing against the sharp corners of a formerly satiny world was difficult. But she learned to take it —and dish it out. Her paper has grown. It is in a new building. New mechanical equipment is on order. She has added a leased wire news service. She has a large, capable staff for a town the size of Bryan. She has sound advice for women in business: "The reason most women don't sticeed in a career is because they depend on .sex," she says with a resounding wink. "Stand on your own feet. Do as well or better than the men you work with. Don't ask favors just because you're a woman. It's ability that counts. Just plain ability."

PROGRESS WASHINGTON By RAY TUCKER TARIFFS — The rumblings of a battle over tariffs that will, exceed ancient struggles over this bread- and-butter issue have mode themselves hrarcl behind Capitol Hill committee doors, in the office of fnrm-labor-industry lobbyists and at .secret sessions in the State and Commerce Departments. Within the last few u - re!:s. here and at the Geneva international trade conference, the battle lines have been drawn tautl.v. For extreme free traders. Henry A. Wallace has proposed that the United States spend $150,000,000,000 over the next generation to feed, clothe, shelter and raise the living standards of the devastated world's peoples. -, In a current issue of a national magazine Averell Harriman, Secretary of Commerce, advocates wholesale reciprocity in a more orthodox and businesslike way. In another national weekly, similar views are attributed to Will H. Clayton. Undersecretary of State for Economic. Affairs, who rushed home from Geneva in an attempt to brush back u Congressional attack on the far-reaching prog rain for lowering the tariff walls in accord with expanded reciprocal tariff pacts. MISSION — The enemies of a more generous policy toward other nations have already unlimberecl their guns, although the ruined conditions of foreign industry, shipping and agriculture offer no immediate threat to their interests. But they arc looking toward the day when, under the Walace-Clayton-Harriman ideas, a reconstruct - ccl world may .seek to flood this country with goods. Repubicans on Capitol Hill have the old issue of what used (o be known as "Schedule K," the wool question. They .have demanded new duties and domestic support price which will keep out imports of tins product. Numerous dairy groups have protested against prospective Geneva agreements before thi; House Ways :ui<l Moans Committee. It was this threat, which forced Mr. Clayton's return from .tho er.st- \vhile home uf the Lcapw of Nation:;. 'I'lie liii.JHnnir movement at \Viisliiii["U>n ho reports, has led rival nations to distrust the Administration'.'; professions of willingness for economic cooperation and at least temporarily, made this ,-i lutile mission. .ATTACK— It is organized labor however which has delivered the fiercest blast against the Truman underwriting program as embodied m foreign loans, the lowering of trade barriers am! .similar eonccs- After qouting fromer Undersecretary Dean Ache-son's demand for a arger volume of imports ami "further emergency financing of foreign purchases," Labor, the publication ol the Railway Rrotherhoods, ture, by importing materials e's sential in peace or war — Jeac chrome, tin, tungsten, manganese rubber, fibers, bauxite, copper, zinc oil. etc. Without these reinforce ments. in their dntnlon. the U.S will become .sucth a "have-not" na lion that il will jeopardize nationn welfare and security witliin a fcv years. ISOLATION — Undersecretary Clayton's report, on the Gcncvi trade conference, which Russia re I'usi'd to attend, reveals the importance oi UK; American attitudi and policies on the question o foreign trade. According to him, devastated nations are looking towarc Ru.ssia and the U. S. for leadership, although preferring the western brand. Peoples struggling to get back on their feet, he says, entertain two great fears. The first is thnl the U. S. may undergo a depression which, as tild the 1929 craekup. will have inlernntiona repercussions. The second is thai this country will withdraw, as it did throuRh operation of the Hnw- ley-Smoot Tariff Act, behind an insurmountable wall of economic isolation. Should either event occur. Washington fears that the wretched of the world, to paraphrase Moscow's most, popular nwrching-and-chow- clor-club soup, will turn to communism rather to western capitalism for succor. woKim fe.™»/• ma as M «kVi<(ii» ! , e, Uncle Sam ist open Ins doors to the products ol low-wage, loroign labor, and lend more billions of dollars to lorei" countr,e.s so they can buy our pro- due s AS the money will never be paid back, that means we give our products away. . . . when will our statesmen', who seem so concerned about other nations, begin to country?""* WeKare ° f Uiel " OU " Save for John L.

' >A£ter fifteen years of "organizing, organizing, organizing" by a lew strategically placed men to gather the reins of power into theii hands, perhaps we should not expect too much of the first conservative legislative session. This is a •counter-revolution, and we like oui revolutions a bit on the gentle side We can afford to spread out tht impact over a period of time. •The labor bill was a compromise between an anti-New Deal Congress representing an enormous majority of the people and a hangover New Deal administration which always has been strongly under the influence of a minority group. We clUl not succeed at this Congress in breaking up the industry-wide un- kifl empires which threaten fascist Control over prices and therefore •threaten the whole competitive system. liut the attitude of Congress and people has sufficiently shocked union chiefs that they will not bly attempt extremes before the tf presidential election.

It will take a Byrd or a Bricker or a Taft. We have seen many of the most dangerous bureaucratic controls lopped ofi. The OPA monster, tho supreme strategy of the Red Pas- cists lor government capture of the enterprise system, has lost its head. Now that it is gone I am not sure Jt was not a blessing in the form of education—if we will only remember the lesson. Bills for socializing our economy such as the various federal housing and government medicine measures, must have been dropped into the wastebasket of the hopper: we are not hearing much about them, despite tlw President's request only ten days ago for socialized medicine. I do not believe the vicious pair of class legislative proposals, the so- .culled Fair Employment Practices act and a bill ostensibly to outlaw race and religious hatred, will reach the floor of either hoii'.v. Both the Congress and the people have begun to understand the selfish and Communistic use to which such laws would be put. Unfortunately, in the matter of world diplomacy I confess I have not .succeeded, after some effort, in becoming optimistic.

Now there are just two groups or factions involved in the Greek-Turkish aid prpgram: Communism versus the established governments.

' A I'l'BUO RKLATIONS JOB America's biggest public rela- lions assignment, perhaps I lie most Significant job of. this kind in tlio jiihlory of the world, is gaining jnomenlurn. It's off to a good start. You may rail it Industrial .states- inanslup, if you want to, or you. Inay call it soiling tlie American way of life. What, it amounts to Is au all-out effort, on the part of Dacli one. of us to lioinonstraU' the faith we have in our economic byslpm. So doing, we shall weather uny present, or future cri.si.s. 1 There must be no 1ongiie-in- cheek when wo assert that nevt'i* Jias an system given .& people so much; nor has any system a brighter future. We Americana ore not generally an emotional people. We can read history without weeping. Europeans think ot (is as more "practical" and less Idealistic. At any rate we hava jieen so busy that we have largely overlooked our selling job, until time is later than we thought. SELLING OURSELVES An industrialist recently indulg- fd in a hit: of analysis: "The simple fact that our American style processes, of finance, production, distribution and selling actually produce more for more people than does any other set of processes over devised by man, has never' been planted deeply in the minds of our people—at; least not to tho extent that it becomes an ever present and active part of tho public consciousness." I I am afraid this is too true. If ^ve had actually sold ourselves on America through the years, wo Would never have seen the phenomenon of certain of our public fi-' gures playing peek-a-boo with the Communists. There would be genuine appreciation of the accom- plishmems and poteitialities of: America in every university chair in the land. There would be no necessity for free labor to be suspect, nor capitalism to be dev fended. . ; CAMPAIGN OF TRUTH i Against so many rampant, fana-! tical destroyers, organized well and supported well, a clean and con-, slant campaign of truth can be effective. Against the doubters and the cynics, this great public relations program must be lied-in with •all-out effort to produce goods for the American people, through an.' economy of abundant;?. Without good works, your theory fails i'iat. Only first understand the system, il you please, then it's easier to make it work. fc •'^t'^glgH In -dealing with all the varieties of dealers of hate and unrest, our people must, be forlified. .11; ought to be difficult to hate the system through which America has be( coHie tho fairiest land in all the world. But we have to admit that 'these destroyers have made some headway. There are those who \vill discredit our system of individual opportunity for all, whilst enjoying its many benefits and advantages. SYMBOLS AND BV-1'ROIJUCTS I Too many somehow have decided that business, in this "capitalistic" country, is altogether bad. These folks have not considered, however, how many cherished things ,1hcy would have to give up if they got rid of "capitalism." With- 'out private initiative in business and industry, in labor, and in professional life, we would sink to'the ls.vel of some of our critics. Keeping what we have built upon so : well in the past, we can make it ^possible to reach continually an 1 ever higher standard of living, .with wages that are the envy o£ workers in every land. : We take a lot of things for' granted. Yet we have a job 1o do. If we a.i-6 businessmen, let us not 1 only sell the product we make but' ilet us sell the product, as a symbol of the freedom under which it is' made. If we are workmen, let us. jconsider our jobs as by-products of' |the freedom under which we live.: ;And no matter what we are, let us know that this sweet land ot liberty offers us a freedom of opportunity as individuals that we can find nowhere- else on this •planet*- I^MJ:^^ j--,. ,^, ,<.,. ,,J In the symbolism of heraldry vert—green—is the color of youth and hope.'
