FARM NEWS Crops Good In East Texas; Yam Plant Talked Crops in East Texas have been exceptionally good this spring and summer, farmers here agree. f abundance of early mois- ture has put pastures in good condition and made truck crops highly productive. Record production was be- lieved made on cucumbers, peas, and tomatoes, although the quality of tomatoes was some- what damaged by too much rain. The peach crop has been good, and watermelons are now moving to market in great quantities. "With several days of real sum- mertime weather after compar- atively cool days in June and July cotton is beginning to look good. The 1940 output is expected to far surpass 1939 production. Corn is doing well in the sandy soils and in black land sections of East Texas it is reported doing unusually well. The sweet potato yield in East Texas will be good, but will be short in Wood County, County Agent Jack Hudson re- ports. Construction of a sweet potato curi...

More than that, he rejected the im- portunings of friends that he run for Governor. He had a job to do as Attorney General, he replied, and until that was done, he had no right to ask the people for another one. One day not many weeks ago, Gerald Mann was offered another public place of great prestige and importance. No lews of this offer has ever got- ;n into the press, but Mann told the offerer: "I feel that I have made a contract with the people of Texas, subject to their option, to serve four years as Attorney General. Unless the people de- cide otherwise, I must go thru with that contract. No matter what other jobs are offered to me, I cannot accept them until my present contract is fulfill- ed." Polks everywhere are talking about Gerald Mann's race for Governor in 1942. That is, e...

Page Four The Sunday Record, August 11,1940. CHURCHES v CHOOSING A COUNTY JUDGE ■MM' Among the contests for public office which re- main to be settled in the August primary is one of the most important on which the public must decide, the race for county judge. The voters would do well to give very serious consideration to the abilities, qualifications, and experience of the man to be elect- ed judge of Wood County. There is no more important office in the county. Certainly no other is equal to it where the welfare of each individual living in the county is concerned. The county judge is chairman of the County Com- missipners Court and presides over its sessions. He does not have a vote except on questions where the four commissioners are equally divided. But his pow- ers of recommendation and guidance are great and usually carry a lot of weight in the disposition of county funds, the setting of tax rates, and all other matters upon which the court has to pass. He presides over the ...

We can imagine the confusion and delay that occurred when the plant failed. Transcontinental passengers were delayed and connections missed. This was brought about by the failure -brought about by failure of pow- er to operate it. Therein lies hte vulnerable part of the system. One little cable or wire failed and the whole plant was out of operation. Whatever, or who- ever, was the cause, the blow fell upon the vital organ of this vast machine and stopped it cold. Under the present conditions with warring nations at each others throats it seems to me we should closely guard our vital machines and plants. Foreign agents are active in this country carrying on their sinister schemes of destruction to aid the fatherland. They hesitate at nothing to carry out their desires.
