The following by Earl Eastwood,
editor of a Texas weekly magazine
is so illuminative that the Watch-
man is hoping that it will catch the
eye of every one of its readers.
Misinformation is so general that
it is well to have the real facts made
public. So much is taken for
ted that what Mr. Eastwood
Hig say will doubtless be a sur-
prise to many.—Editor.
The country is threatened with the
bitterest political campaign in years.
The 1931 contest will be predomi-
nantly a sectional battle, and sec-
tionalism cannotes bitterness. Pro-
hibition will be a major issue, with
the dry South and West aligned
against the wet East and North. On
economic questions the same divi-
sions will prevail, The ancient riv-
alry between city and country will
be intensified. Both parties will
have plenty of grief because of sec-
tional feuds which will reach a
crisis at their National Conventions
a little more than a year from
now. The Democrats may suffer
most from sectionalism, but it will |
harass and annoy the Republicahs
as well.
These are the considered opinions
of competent observers throughout
the country. are based upon
signs which he who runs may read.
Sectionalism was rampant in the
Seventy-first Congress. It had no
more than ended when Northern and
Southern representatives clashed at
the meeting of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee in Washington, The
so-called Progressive conference in
_ Washington, inspired and dominated
oy Western Republican Insurgents,
<ontributed to the revival of sec-
“tional animosity.
A fairly typical instance of the un-
“dercurrent throughout the is
contributed by a recent edi in
the Dallas News. It foresees trouble
“over prohibition and over economic
issues such as the tariff and the de-
pression of the farming class, And
it adds:
Then, too, the South and West are
becoming tired of the arrogant iead-
ership of the Bast and are going to
remind it that its supremacy is
passing, coming West and South.
We in the South are weary of the
sort of politics furnished by Tam-
many and its Eastern imitators,
and we sometimes wish that that
alien section of the United States
‘would secede and try to live on its
“own resource, barred out from the
real United States by high tariff
This querulous outburst has been
"fully and conclusively answered at
its point of origin by one of the
most illuminating and thought-pro-
voking discussions of the folly of sec-
tionalism that has been presented in
recent The Texas Weekly,
‘all the Western tural area
There are at least 2,000,000 more
native-born white people in New
England, New York, rennsylvania
and New Jersey than there are in

the ten States mentioned but the
Border States of Maryland, Dela-
ware, Kentucky and Tennessee, with
Oklahoma thrown in for good meas-
ure, Therefore, concludes Mr. Moly-
neaux, “it is sheer know-nothingism
to talk about ‘alien’ sections.”
He invokes both the letter and
the spirit of Sam Houston's words
spoken on the floor of the United
States Senate seventy-three years
ago: “I have heard too much in
the councils of the Nation about sec-
tions—I will know no section.” What
a contrast to the battle-cry
of invading the “enemy's country!”
. Sectionalism, like the poor, is al-
ways with us. It thrived during the
' struggle for independence and the
founding of the Nation. It awak-
ened sharp opposition to the War of
1812— “Mr. Madison's war.” It in-
spired the annexation of Texas and
the struggle with Mexico. It caus-
ed the bloody feud between the
North and South. It kindled the
flames, of

11928, It has been the cause of in-
| numerable clashes between Republi-
‘can Presidents and the Western
farm bloc in Congress in the last
The Western ghost dancers and
the Southern breast beaters are atit
again. They are not the only con-
| tributors to sectional animostity. The
| political effects of Senator Moses’
‘allusion to “sons of the wild jack-
ass” and ex-Senator Grundy’'s refer-
ence to ‘“backward States” may be
felt for years. Sectionalism looms
high on the political horizon of 1932.
It is none too soon for Americans
who believe as Mr. Molyneaux does
to make their contributions to the
development of sanity, harmony and
mutual understanding.
| Reports from district foresters
throughout Pennsylvania indicate
that many fires have resulted from
| brush burning and carelessness with

| dry condition of the forest has led

tion be issued by the Governor pro-
hibiting the use of smoking material
{and the burning of brush in the

Secretary Staley makes a special

starting brush firesand from throw-
ing away unex smoking
material when conditions in the
woods are such that fires may start.

For Your Inspection
THE MERCHANT and manufacturer who advertise,
actually are placing their merchandise before you for
inspection They invite your most critical attention and
an uncompromising comparison. And their advertise-
ments, so to speak, say to their products: “We have
introduced you to the public—now stand on your own
If the manufacturer and merchant did not have
confidence in their wares, they would hesitate to call at-
tention to them. For advertising rigidly tests the
maker, the seller and the merchandise. Business so
tested, and found not wanting, is prosperous.
In the long run, you can depend on the man who
advertises, as well as on his product. That is one rea-
son why people have found that it pays to read adver-
It is thru advertising that the excellent things of
the world are brought to the attention of those who are
seeking for the best and most economical way to spend
their money.
Read the advertisements. They are NEWS, pos-
sibly better news to you than anything else that appears
in the Watchman.
