During the apparently irresistible tiii
oi uoisnevixi successes which threat
ened to engulf Poland, thousands of
rural dwellers were forced to flee
post haste from their homes and
farms, in most cases taking only the
clothes on their backs or a few cher
ished possessions. The vast majority
of these refugees were without suffi
cient food or clothing and had no ade
quate shelter when they arrived at
places of safety.
Measures were taken to feed and
care for these people despite the fact
that the large Red Cross supply de
pots were directly in the path of the
advancing Bolshevik! army and it was
necessary to move hurriedly the
stores from Bialystok to Krakow. A
large garage was secured for the pur
pose. Since the tide of battle has turned,
reports say, the refugees are returning
to their dwellings and steps are being
taken by the Red Cross to facilitate
their return and restore conditions to
MEAL TICKET PATRIOTS.
Ten years in Oklahoma politics and
several campaigns in State political
headquarters have given me a line
on meal ticket patriots of Oklahoma.
It is not easy to get the names of
all of these for their name is Legion,
but in ten years' time I have become
acquainted with an entire battalion of
public spirited citizens who will sup
port any candidate or any ticket for
a cash consideration. It may be said
that a campaign is formally open
when the meal ticket brigade be
gins to knock at the door of political
headquarters. All of them have an
exalted idea of their own importance.
All of them can deliver the solid vote
of a township, a county or a congress
ional district If the organization is
interested in a township, the meal
ticket Datriot is reariv tn rnnvlnm
you that the township in question is
nis pet stock in trade. If a congress
ional district is deemed doubtful, the
meal ticket man is renHv tn rami
that district horse, foot and dragoon,
ino political gyrations of these meal
ticket patriots furnishes the comedy
of every political struggle. The case
with which they reconcile their abil
ity to deliver a thousand votes with
their urgent need of a dollar and a
quarter is more comic than anything
that ever came from the pen of the
world's greatest comedian. The re
commendations they give themselves
and the eulogies they pronounce on
their own oratorical ability would be
astounding if one didn't know the
chief characteristic of the meal tick
et men. And thus it is that cam
paigns come and go, issues are agi
tated but rarely settled, the great
game of American politics is played to
its frazzled close, but the meal ticket

SOME TEXAS FARMERS
TURN STOCK INTO FIELDS
Wise County farmers are turning
their cattle into the cotton fields,
which have been almost completely
despoiled by the weevil and excessive
Judge W. D. Paschal said Monday
that in many places cotton in Wise
County would not yield one bale to
100 acres. One can walk through
field after field of rank plants and
not find a boll that will ever pro
duce a lock of the staple. Mr. Hoyle
who owns a ranch of G.000 acres east
of Decatur and who has 400 acres
in cotton, Monday offered to sell his
entire crop for twenty-five bales.
"A month ago I figured on getting
400 bales, he said. "Today I would
be glad to get forty bales. In fact, I
will sell the 400 acres on the basis
of twenty-five bales."
