HEW WBTERN LEADERS PUT OUT OUR BY BYRON TRICE (Chief of Bureau, The Associated Press) The one lingering impression of the 1.15 Republican Show ftt Cleve- Inntl has to do with' the constant, insistent pressure t>f the west, seeking to turn eastern party leaders away from traditions t.iiry have cherished for years. In terms of the drama, the play could well be emitted "The Wooing of the East.' 1 Its action reversed complete!^ the picture which had become more or le'ss standard over a period t>f a generation. At a long succession of such gatherings, the big question had bben how to propitiate the west. Eastern organization men. in firm control of the conventions but fearful of election repercussions in the plains states, had figured what concessions must be made 'to the Dollivers, the LaFbllettes, the Nor- rlscs. This lime, the Westerners, who marched on the convention under the banner of Alf M. Landon, had a similar pfoblcm about 'the east. West in Saddle Even before the party hosts assembled at Cleveland, the western leaders began to look forward to national leadership and talce steps accordingly. They sent emissaries eastward. The burden of their representations Was that in 1936 tllb West meant to take command, but had no intention of being bull-headed about it. They asked -what. It was necessary to do so that ft western nominee might have the best pos 1 Eible chance to carry the cast In November. They found the easterners receptive. For nidhths it had been agreed pirtong the top men of the 'p'artS' that a western man must be the candidate. The way they put it was this: First of all, you must give us convincing evidence what candidate from its own section the west prefers. Then you must give us assurances, written in the party platform, that western leadership Will not run wild if it is put at the party throttle. At Cleveland the Landonites set cut definitely to meet both of these requests. They pressed the case for their candidate on the ground that He suited the west, as shown by the character of -his western support. They undertook to write ft platform which would neither alienate that support not offend the east. LITTLE MAN'S BUSY DAY DALLAS (If) — All in one day, the following things happened to 9- year-old Bryan Garrett: He twisted his toe in a bicycle wheel. Pretty soon his playful brother hit him with a brick. A wasp stung him. He scratched his leg dn some briars ahd, winding up the day, he fell off ia barn and received a cut that rc- • quired seven stitches. By WILLIAMS ALL US. HOLLERIN' ABduT MY NAIL'S ' BEIM 1 DIRTY ENOUGH TO GROW WEED'S AN WELL, IF SUGW A WISE •GUY,, WHY THEY SHOULD HAVE A LitTLE WATElR.bNCE )N A WHILE/ /,,, THE ARID ZONE By E. C. SEEGAR Texas Legends and Folklore By Olive M. Johnson, Director of Speech Arts North Texas State Teachers College VIII The Negro in Texas Folklore The negro is 'generally alike, the south over; but the early Texas hegro has a culture belonging particularly r to him. He has many songs —work songs, play songs, dance Songs, arid some that defy classification, apparently having been com- jjosed for the sheer joy of putting incongruous words together—but, where the negro excels is in his ghost tales. The negro brings his children up en gruesome tales of "Raw Head" and "Bloody Bones." iNo wonder he is a timorous and fearful creature, in perpetual ter- iror of "hants" and grabeyards." One story states that two negroes who had stolen some sweet potatoes from their master decided that the graveyard would be the best place to divide the spalls without fear of molestation. They counted them, not by two's and three's but by "You take dis'n and I'll take dat'n." A passing negro heard the sound 'and crept up close to listen. The curious monotone almost scared him out of his wits, and he tore off to his master's house with a strange tale: "Oh, my Gawd, de debble and de Lawd is down at de grabeyard dividin' up de folkses." The master went back with the negro to investigate. The two crept close and heard, "You take dis'n an' I'll take dat'n." Then came the concluding and devastating words, "You take dese las' two ah 1 I'll take dem two on de outside when we goes out!" The two listeners stood net upon the order of their going; to be strictly truthful, the master probably ran faster than the negro. The negro's active imagination is never more clearly shown than in the creation of his remedies. Here is what is said to be an unfailing cure for rehumatism: "Take an empty whisky bottle about half full of vinegar and put in a handful of large red- ants. Shake well and apply internally and externally." BY JOHN SELBY. You either will like James McConnaughey's "Villiage Chronicle" (Parrar & Rinhart) very much, or you will be bored to tears. It seems to us that as a novel of small-town life it ranks pretty high. But ner- haps you don't like novels of small- town life. ' Mr. McConnaughey's book is the secon'S 'first n'ovel issued for "The Discoverers," which is a one-publisher book club designed to serve 1,500 to 2,500 persons willing to take a chance on eight or ten first novels a year. The first book so Issued was Felipe Alfau's "Locos: An Author at the Mercy of His Characters," which was a little mad J>ut arriusing if you are amused by that sort of thing. " "Village Chronicle" is a horse of quite another color. There is a plot of sorts, or at any rate there is a story. But the story is quite' unimportant; like Victoria Lincoln's •'February Hill," the newer novel is to be read for its characterization and for its sense of the interrelation of lives as they are lived in the villages of the land. The town in this case is called Churchill and is supposed to be the seat of the University of North Carolina. Because "Churchill" is smaller than the average college town, its' frictions begin to throw off sparks sooner. A dictum from the racred presidential office at the university reaches the lowliest laundress within an hour or so, and when Dean Burton's wild son smashes into the car of kindly George Adams the editor, one can 'imagine the reverberations.
