POLITICAL CONVENTIONS With the republican convention gone but not forgotten, and the democratic conclave in Its prime stage, radio, press and what not are giving the nation its regular four-year treat. The republicans In choosing Landon of Kansas have chosen the strongest candidate available. Preliminary remarks by OOP Man Snell and others by ex-president Hoover are reminiscent of the old days of the party. Landon himself, using rare discretion, remained away from the hullaballoo of the convention, and thereby deserves The Southwesfs first World's Fair, the $25000000 Texas Centennial Exposition opened In Dallas on June 6 to continue until Nov. 29. Primarily, the World's Fair of 1938, it commemorates 100 years of Texas independence as a republic and a state but has for its background four centuries of colorful history. Six flags •»« floiw over Texas soll-those of Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederacy and the United States. In 1838, Texas became an Independent republic by breaking away from Mexico. The Texas Centennial Exposition of 1936 is in celebration of this event and the century of progress since achieved Leading industrial concerns of the nation are participating in the Exposition on a scale involving the expenditure of millions of dollars. Among these are Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, DuPont, General Foods, Standard Brands, General Electric, Westtnghouse, the Texas Company, Continental Oil Company, Gulf Oil Company, ten railroad systems serving the Southwest, and representatives of otn- er industries spanning the entire course of human ^ _ World's Fairs have featured science, the "arts or some other major phase of progress, the Texas Centennial Exposition will present as one of Its principal features Its Agrarian Way along which five great buildings will house the largest agricultural and livestock show exhibit ever assembled in one place.

Roosevelt's renomlnatlon Is conceded. His administration has plenty of loopholes at which barbed darts may Inflict damage. Even with the greatest of his mistakes, however, which have been those of needless extravagance in spots, it is conceded by those of his foes who have maintained any emblance of balance, that his administration has certainly been conducive to a development of many social and economic improvements which are here to stay-Roosevelt or no Roosevelt after next year. Candidate Landon hns the good fortune to be a man in public life who has not been on the political front in n wide area to have brought down the wrath of any considerable mass of voters. He is young enough to appeal to newer voters, has a middle western background which will not hurt him. and sense enough to keep his mouth shut. If there is any serious drawback to Landon s candidacy at the present time, it Is probably the fact that reactionaries like Hearst. Mellon and others are behind him. If he is a man of the people, he will keep his own counsel and take the advice of the demagogues for what it is worth-whlch isn't much. He'll have a hard problem, however, in keeping them reconciled, and still maintaining a popular appeal. Roosevelt has lost support in the past three years In several ways. His New Deal program has displeased many of the old line democrats, who are just as reactionary as those of brother republicans like the onea mentioned above. Pee-wee democrat bosses have been displeased in some sections because they did not get their followers jobs they sought. Any successful candidate has the same problem. Most of the material dished out at any party convention is absolutely worthless. No attempt is ever made to sift the good from the bad In deed or action. Each side calto the other a dirty, low-down outfit, and praises itself to the sky. The conventions this year, because of the lack of competition between candidates, are tamer than they have been for some time. And as far ar offering anything enlightening to the public, they are the usual blank cartridges. the City of Dallas, which will Include museums of natural history, horticulture and fine arts, an ac- quarlum, a hall of domestic Science, and an outdoor amphitheater and symphony shell. Music will be given a prominent place in all programs of the Exposition with grand opera, famous name orchestras and bands, the National Folk Festival, and other events to be presented. Sports will not be overlooked. Football games, rodeos, polo games, field and track events, and boxing and wrestling will be Included in the World s Fair calendar. One of the outstanding features of the Exposition will be the presentation daily of the "Cavalcade of Texas." gigantic dramatization of the 400- year history of the Lone Star state, which is be- "ing produced at an initial cost of $150.000. More than 300 actors will take part. The stage will be 300 feet wide and 175 feet deep with water curtains dividing the different levels. A real stream will flow before the footlights with replicas of the boats of the first explorers of Texas floating in its waters.

Star, won first place In this year's editorial writing contest for editors of South Dakota. Partisanship in newspapers Is slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past. The oldtime party editor who used to condemn, vigorously and without exception, everything his political opponents did has virtually disappeared from the current scene. A ploturesquj and lively fellow was he. With a pen dripping in vitriol and nitroglycerin, he wrote editorials about the other party that fairly scorched the paper on which they were written. He never had a good word for his political enemies, and would have deemed himself a traitor if he had allowed even one issue of his newspaper to alip off off the press without some blistering diatribe concerning their activities or lack of activity. But when it came to his own political party, he wrote In honeyed and complimentary terms, always expressing complete satisfaction for what his compatriots were doing to advance the cause of his faith and. incidentally, of his country. Vaseline r.nd goose-grease were daubed in liberal quantities on the backs of the public officials who supported his party's cause, for, after all, were not they righteous in every deed and deserving of special anointment. Partisan newspapers may have been exciting and interesting, but they certainly were not informative and uplifting. They gave only one side to every political question, and that hide was as often wrong as right. What their political opponents thought and advocated, they none too politely ignored They felt it their duty, as partisan papers, to record only v.h.u their partisan readers wanted to hear. To sive even a minor voice to opposing views was just not the proper thing to do. l-Vssibly because editors got tired of running :d sheets, or more likely because their to demand full information on all public- questions, a gradual decline in the number of partisan nev. spapers .started about a quarter of a lentuiy .1."'. until tod.iy but few are left. The powerful newspapers in the country, while still retaining party labels m a subdued sense, adopt a non-partisan view in the discussion of political questions. They are as likely to criticize their !.arl>'.i policies as they are to approve, and they as often see some yood in the activities and platforms of their opponents. .StronK iK-mocralic papers like the Omaha World-Herald, Baltimore Sun, und New York 'limes are at tunes eMremcl> cnticul of the Nc-w Deal; while, on the oiher hand, the Republican Des iluines KI.-K.'-''-''• •' pu Atr '" lilc '""^d' 1 -' west. i:i aympullKti.- to a number c-l Kouatveltkm objectives.
