* DIDACTICS —By Deskint Weds By Jim !.'*., Co-op Members Told to Tell Own Story Bargains galore in every '«tore XMI May 1, 2 'and 4. This rhyme may not ibe poetry, but it is a fact for Wellington this week end. The merchants have gone all out in promoting dollar days this month. Just name it and you'll probably find it advertised in this issue. Over in Russia the government newspaper Izvestia complains that Soviet advertising is boring and cites such examples as: "Tea is a tasty and useful drink" and "Use the railway transport". When you get to thinking about it that is not very alluring advertising appeals. It may take a hundred years, but those people will have to turn capitalistic if they ever produce enough food and fiber or move merchandise. Election time has slipped tup on us and next Saturday is the day. There was ai time when election day would have brought a tremendous crowd to town. They stayed until midhiight with Tom Benge and Joe Hardy selling ice cream sodas and banana splits by the hundreds and Bill Burden dishing out the hamburgers and the near- "foeer, and people flocking around the newspaper office to get the state returns that were sent by wire by the. Texas Election Bureau. The "radio and TV have taken care of that; but. it will pay you to stay open a little later than usual because people still -come to town to learn the outcome of the county races. Four years ago this county gave Preston Smith of Lubbock a resounding majority tover several opponents in the first primary and they will undoubtedly do the same thing this year. In addition they will probably give the same majority to Gov. John Connally who has made an excellent governor In spite of what that Childress editor says. In fact Morris Higley may have made the Governor more votes than anybody else around here. Mr. Higley is disgruntled because the Governor combined the Fish, Game and Oyster Commission with the Parks Board. It put Morris out of a state job. Across the line in Oklahoma, they say that Bud Wilkinson will be nominated in the first primary. That] is where the gentleman needs to ibe—in poll- tics and not running around all over Texas recruiting our best football talent. Of course we had 'to go over to Hollis to find a coach so I guess it is just another ca'se of the pot calling the kettle black. Texas' most famous winter visitors, the whooping cranes have left on their 2,500 mile •Greenbelt Electric Cooperative. Inc., members should know about their cooperative that is their own business and tell other people about it, they were urged by Jim Cobb, general manager of the Texas Electric Cooperatives, Inc., as he sipoke at their 26th annual meeting Friday, April 24. Cobb's talk followed a business meeting in which members 'heard a report of their cooperative for the last year and re-elected three directors: Sel'ba Rainey of Lutie, District 3; A. J. Garland of Clarendon, Demo Women Offer Rides The Collingsworth County League of Democratic Women will furnish transportation to elderly people or anyone In need of transportation to the polls on Saturday, May 2. This will be another community service of the ILeague, according to Mrs. John Coleman, president. "If you are in need of the transportation, call me, phone 447-2188. I will in turn send some one to your aid. You should request the transportation before noon 1 Saturday," Mrs. Colcman said. Voters — from page one Williams of Dallas county.

A pair in the New Orleans zoo have raised four young wnes in recent years and now they are going to try the same thing in San Antonio. The race between propagation and extinction is a tight one for these majestic birds. Hayrides often cause a lot of talk afterward, but the one that caused the most talk in Wellington is the one thati didn't happen last Friday. District 6; and elected one new one, Harold White of Medley, District 7. Many people are confused about the name and confuse electric cooperatives with the various alphabetical government agencies, Cobb reminded. "This is a local business that borrows money from the Rural "Electrification Administration," he •declared'. "Many; don't give the 'local organization credit, "when at did it "all."" Electric cooperatives nave grown from their own strength to what they are today, he told the Greenbelt members. Garland, president of the board of directors, presided* at the meeting, and Fred jBour- land, secretary, read the minutes of the 1963 meeting and other reports, and Selba Rainey gave the financial report. George Henry, Greenbelt manager, introduced the cooperative's employees and later gave the manager's report. Entertainment was 'by the Quail high school chorus, which has sung for the meeting 12 years. A near-capacity crowd filled the community building auditorium.
