Just now the demand for lumber happens to be slack, but that is a temporary condition. In time the forests of the State will be called upon to supply building on a large scale again. Forest conservation is therefore a matter of great importance to Texas. The most severe threat to con- servation is fire. A blaze carelessly started by a camp- cr, or by some one throwing a cigar stub into dry leaves, may destroy timber worth millions of dollars. , Texas forest fire losses in 1931 were twice as great...

Sidelights on How to Make The Farm Pay by MARVIN JONES Member of Congress From Texas The new Congress must face seri- ous problems. None of these is more important than those relat- ing to agriculture. Agriculture is the most vital part of our present Industrial sys- tem. It Is governed by the same laws which govern other business- es. If these basic laws are dis- turbed, and if attention is center- ed on only a portion of the en- tire system, the remaining part will suffer. That Is what has hap- pened to agriculture. The farmer is suffering from the results of , _ favoritism to other i...

FRIDAY AqSOOAVOH PRESS TECHNOCRACY is the new word, you are going to hear more and more about as the seasons come and go. After 12 years of hard study and research, wise nvn have discovered that the American people should work only 4 hours a day and ONLY 4 days each week, to supply their need: o' clothing, shelter, etc, and at the same time enjoy all the lux- uries that any man or woman should have and want. If TECH- NOCRACY is adopted and each and every man and woman can have and enjoy all the good things they need and want, with only 4 hours work each day and only 4 days each week, what difference would it make as to whether a man is worth ten cents or ten million dollars. The man who is worth ten million dollars will have all the good things he wants and all he needs, therefore can- not kick, while the man worth ten cents will enjoy everything the man does who is worth ten million dollars. The ten million dollar man should not kick, sines he will have everything necessary to make...

' CURRENT COMMENT By J. H. LOWRY (Copyright, 1911, br the Horn Color Print Co.) I January—1933 lIKE all other latter-day years, Nineteen Hundred and Thirty- Three started off with January. It was not always so. At the be- ginning the Roman calendar carried only ten months, and March was the first one. But bye-and-bye Numa Pompilius reached the throne. Numa "vas at the head of a big school before he ascended the throne, and he had a reform program that kept the Roman Senate at work in season and out of season. It wasn't a series of special sessions, with mileage to and from home several times a year, but one con- tinuous session often extending far into the night. After old Numa had reformed every- thing else, he tackled calendar reform, an undertaking he carried out easily be- cause there was no prohibition question to interfere. He proposed that the number of months be increased to twelve, and by promising each Senator's daughter a job as stenographer in one of the departments he p...
