-^ - —*•-^ -i - •-- • ; -- CORNING, )ITOR AL THE LORD IS GOOD: Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting: and his truth endureth to all generations.—Psalm 100:2, 5. * * * # I F PLANS MEAN anything, Pampa and this territory are in line for good news this year. Building is starting off well, which is good news to those who rent houses, who are laborers or building craftsmen, who sell materials, and all who like to see conditions brisk. There are reasons to believe that building will be made easier this year. Indeed, many building concerns and material dealers already have attractive propositions. The oil outlook continues favorable despite the political uncertainty and the threatened breakdown of legislation against "hot oil." With the price apparently stable, and drilling appropriations already made, the field will continue to be the most powerful stimulus to business. Unfortunately, the drought lingers and the lack of moisture for wheat continues to be the most depressing factor. However, there is still hope for a fair wheat crop. Although there are those who "view with alarm" every year at this season, experience has shown that a crop is neither made nor lost in January. The last 15 days of February will form a key period in the winter moisture situation. * * * * ALTHOUGH PUBLIC budgets are not balanced, ap- • /» propriations for public works to relieve unemployment are of keen interest here. Until private business and industry can absorb the unemployed, the various units of government will be compelled to continue the compulsory re-distribution of wealth through public expenditures. More than 750 city, county, state and federal officials met in Fort Worth Friday to make an inventory of possible public works projects in connection with President Roosevelt's $4,000,000,000 program to provide jobs. Pampa has friends high in authority in that program. Walter D. Cline of Wichita Falls is regional director of the federal housing administration. Julian Montgomery of Wichita Falls, who drew a Pampa city plan, is state PWA engineer and is a former employer of City Manager C. L. Stine. It cannot be assumed that any community will receive hundreds of thousands of dollars without participation in the expense. There are some projects, however, such as highways and underpasses, which should not entail much local expense if granted. President Roosevelt is expected to allocate a huge sum of highways. Gray county should receive its share, and so should the neighboring counties. There has been many a slip in federal plans which have been announced in the past, hence it behooves everyone to be patient but for those in position of leadership to be consistently diligent. * * * * 'IN A LETTER TO Supt. R. B. Fisher, the Boy Scouts -* of America point with modest pride to a service to 6,.530,330 Scouts and Scouters as the organization ends its first quarter century in America. In order to extend the benefits of the movement to millions of boys who have no opportunity to join troops, BSA is asking the cooperation of schools. Columbia university has published a new book, "Scouting in the Schools," which provides a practical working basis for Scouting cooperation with the schools. Boy Scout week, which will Ibegin February 8, will be observed in thousands of schools. On the evening of the first day, President Hoosevelt will broadcast a special message of inspiration. Dr. J. W. Studebaker, recently appointed commissioner of education, Department of the Interior, said: "In its use of individual boy initiative, its idealization of boy aims, its recognition of the character building influence of 'doing' good rather than: 'thinking' good, and its dependence upon the power of group morale, Scouting has much to teach other forms of education. Schools will do well to cooperate in making the Scouting activities of boys as effective as possible." German university students are striking against a professor who wouldn't help collect charity funds on the streets. Now he has to go out for himself. The DuPonts, it seems, tested their new foolproof explosive with everything except an insane patient with a revolver. Japan has ordered the members of its Rome embassy to take up golf. Thinking of putting through some big deal with Mussolini. Russia now is making 57 varieties of sausage, but is sticking to only one line of boloney. If you don't think much of all this newspaper space on the Hauptmann case, news of progress in the matter against Martin Insull recently got only three lines. SINCLAIR'S EPIC PLAN MAY BE TOTED IN STATE OF OKLAHOMA OKLAHOMA OITV, Feb. 2. (IP)— Oklahoma may become the laboratory In which Upton Sinclair's Utopian EPIC plan is tested. An administration-backed bill creating a new dustries board with far- reaching powers is before the Oklahoma legislature. The bill, if enacted into law, will give the industries board unprecedented powers in buying, selling and operating commercial plants both to prdvide goods for the needy and offer employment. Tlie measure asks an appropriation of $1,000,000 for the operation of the board until June 30, 1936, and provides full authority for the board to borrow funds and Issue b'onds. One section authorizes the board to acquire transportation and cpm- »jnunicailon facilities. This provi- rion, while not specifically niention- ihg gas and electric power lines was believed br,o,ad enough to put the ^aje Wto compstition •with public service q'pmpanies. "the' fern parallels the Utopian '- ^vocated by Sinclair in his y rajJe for Governor of Ca,y? • the section "dealing with It authorities the board to operate, construct, buy and sell factories for the following purposes: "To furnish employment for the unemployed and goods for their maintenance so long as unemployment and human usfferlng relating therefrom exist in Oklahoma. "To produce essential supplies and materials for public construction whenever, in the opinion of the board, there exists monopolistic cpn- tiol of the price of these commodities or the state Js unable to purchase these supplies and materials at fair prices in the open market. "To furnish employment for the wards of the state." The board's powers under the bill are not limited to factories and The measure further provides that the board may acquire, hold, develop, sell, pool, syndicate or .otherwise turn to account in the jiame of the board, land and the natural products thereof. This section carries the additional provision that th£ board may resort to condemnation proceedings if necessary, to acquire the desired properties. Read our plassinea TEXAS HISTORY Brushing Up on Pact* You Ought to Recall R. M. Williamson's article in The Texas Republican of July 5, 1834. was creating a great amount of comment by the people of Brazoria. There was truth in his words, they were certain, but nevertheless they were in a rather helpless condition. "The project of state government originated in the good sense of the whole united people of Texas," Williamson wrote. "Our constitution lias been rejected. We shall still continue our unnatural connexion with Conhuila. Our earnest entreaties hove been disregarded . . . they.have arrested and now detain our agent, Stephen P. Austin, on, a charge that should lie against the whole people of Texas. The project of state government was not Austin's. It was the, people's. Desertion by us, then, of this our own cause, would be worse than political npostacy. It would be individual persecution and hypocracy to the government." The next issue of tnp paper published a letter from Austin, written at the prison of the Ocordado, City of Mexico, August 25. "I presume you are already informed that I arrived in this city on the thirteenth of February last and was shut up in one of the dungeons of the inquisition, where I remained three months in close confinement, incommunicado, locked up day and night with very little except candles, and not allowed to speak and communicate with anyone, nor to have books, pen, or paper. The president, Santa Anna, is friendly to Texas ana to me, of this I have no doubt, he would have set me at liberty long since, and in fact, issued orders to that effect in June, but Some statements arrived Which have kept me in prison further. . . . The farmers heed only proclaim with unanimous voice fidelity to Mexico, opposition to violent men or measures and all will be peace, harmony, ana prosperity in Texas." Ausin's imprisonment lasted much longer than he expected. The months passed slowly, each one bringing the faint hope of freedom. It was June, 1835, before he was finally freed. His petition for freedom ha-d been passed from one court to another, and promises had been vain. His health impaired, disillusioned about the government, but with faith in his native land, Austin left Vera Cruz July il, sailed to New Orleans, and on to Texas. Me was not to regain his health before he was in the midst of all the political turmoil which gripped Texans in 1835. Although still a young man, lij; was to live only a short while, worn out by the-Heavy burdens he had been bearing for many years. He, however, was to liye to see the Texas he loved gain its freedom, the Centennial of to be commemorated by the celebrations of 1936. TffO HUNDRED PERSONS ATTEND ANNUAL F. F. A. BOYS'EVENT M'LEAN, Feb. 2.—More than 200 persons attended the annual F. F. A. barbecue and stock-judging contest at the G. W. Sitter ranch today. About 45 F. F. A. students and former students competed in the judging contests, which included judging of beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, and mules. Prizes will be awarded as soon as the papers are graded. Beef for the barbecue was donated by the ranch and was.composed of milk-fed Hereford calves. The F. F. A. boys furnished the bread, picklcss, coijfee, and lemonade and did the cooking. On Thursday, the boys ordered 40 regulation jackets which will bear the F. F. ,A emblem and the name of the school, according to A. A. Tampke, instructor.
