.nr-- V- THE PAMPA DAILY , P*inpa, TEXAS ADVERTISING PROJECT The fact that Texans who love their state are intensely patriotic need not blind anyone to the fact that the Centennial is a huge advertising project, so conceived by a Texas publisher. Advertising is legitimate and necessary. Advertising of Texas heroes is no less important than stressing our natural resources and our bright future. Texas' heroic past is an asset. It makes newcomers proud to be Texans and encourages visitors to come here to live. Texans have not begun to realize that their Centennial already has attracted more attention in some respects than did the Century of Progress. Detrimental publicity in connection with the drought is being overcome in a manner which should cheer all readers. For instance, the anti-new deal Saturday Evening .Post which has carried stories and pictures highly offensive to West Texans comments as follows on Page 22 of the June 13 issue: "In Texas, March second was Independence Day; and now, to mark her century of freedom, she invites all the world to come to her Centennial Exposition, which will be held in Dallas from June sixth to November twenty- ninth. "Large as it looks on the map, few of us realize that this huge state contains more than 265,000 square miles, or that it'covers more than 8 per cent of our national area. "Texas leads all other states, not only in cotton raising but in livestock, petroleum, sulphur and mohair. In the production of lumber, building materials and citrus fruits, she ranks very near the top. Her annual contribution to our national income runs all the way from half a billion to nearly a billion dollars last year. In 1932 she took from New York first rank in the value of exports produced within state borders, the figure being only a shade under three hundred million dollars. ". . . .Exposition authorities have had at their disposal appropriations and contributions aggregating some $25,00.0,000, and they feel that they have been laying out their funds in ways that cannot fail to please their guests and visitors from far and wide."

BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- By RODNEY DUCHER WASHINGTON—tHeavy pressure is being brought on the administration to urge Owen D. Young to run for governor of New York on the Democratic ticket. It comes from conservatives and practical politicians who argue that Young's election would be certain and that he would be most equally certain to carry the national ticket along with him. Jim Parley and his staff have been worried about New York ever since the popular Governor Lehman announced his retirement. The "draft Young" movement is meeting bitter opposition, however, from liberals in the administration. Roosevelt will have to override the pleas of some if he falls in with it. The liberals assert that Young belongs in the group of old-line Democratic anti-New Dealers of the John W. Dayis-Al Smith type; that Roosevelt would be making too great a concession if he were to beg him to run; and that Young probably would insist on certain policy compromises of a conservative nature if he were to accept. They profess to believe that Roosevelt will run ahead of any gubernatorial candidate the New York Democrats name. On the other hand, it appears that Farley feels that putting Young on the firing line would attract support froin business men and middle-class groups in other states which the national ticket wouldn't otherwise receive. No one here claims to have any assurance that Young would accept the nomination even if it were tendered him on a platter. His personal relations with F. D. R. have remained rather friendly. Although polls previously gave Roosevelt a slight edge in New York, tendency has increased among politicians to class the state as doubtful. Its 47 electorial votes are enormously important and only twice in history has a candidate who lost New York been elected. Latest WPA story is one about a woman who was explaining her situation to the state director in Pennsylvania : "There was me and Sam, he's my husband, and five children. We didn't have a job. It seemed like we was an awful lot of people to bo on relief. So 1 decided to let Sam go. "Then the WPA camo in stylo and I got work with them. There was nobody to leave the children with while I was away from home. So I took Sam back." Miss Rubye Louise Nix, the pretty 21-year-old PWA 1 stenographer who married Congressman Marion A. Zion- check of Washington to "reform him" and then seemed to fall in with the spirit of the thing, had an exceptionally good record as a government employe. Mrs. Zioncheck's former superiors and girl associates in PWA's accounting department, without the least trace of cattiness, such as you might expect, report that she was exceptionally popular, intelligent, and efficient.
