Let's talk Just a wee bit about some of the not so good ones. Then, if we have space left, about aome of the good ones, of which there are plenty. • • • HONESTLY, WE. "view with alarm” this tendency of our city commissions In the Valley to erect a protective tariff wall around their cities. Other night Harlingen city com mission orders that all milk sold In Harlingen must be pasteurized with in the confines of commissioners precinct no 4. Intent of the order Is obvious. Meant to throw business to Har lingen concerns. PjT'iaps to bring additional in diufmes to Harlingen. Slidable purpose. And the result? Next day agitation is started In Brownsville for a similar ordinance One which would provide that a’l foodstuffs such as milk and bakery products sold in rownsville must be prepared for the market in Brownsville. It’s dangerous doctrine. Leading away from that true ideal of Valley oneness for which we are striving, fall short of the mark though we may. Not a Valley community that is sufficient to itself alone. Trade at home? Most assuredly you snd I should trade at home. And where is home? Can we of Brownsville, business and professional men. live and prof it on the business we derive from re sidents of Brownsville alone? Can the business and professional men of Harlingen get by on what the residents of Harlingen alone spend with them? Folks, it Just can't be done. Least of all can It be done by legislation. * These times of depression call for cool and collected thinking. /#;:py do not call for hasty legisla ? hich will array the sentiment ft The residents of one Valley city against the residents of another. NOW IS THE 'time for residents of every Valley city from Rio Grande City to Brownsville to Raymondvllle to get their heads together. And to resolve that by neither thought nor action will anyone or any organization in any one com munity do anything which would even hint at injuring any interest in any other community. It must be done, and we are so confident of our Valley we believe it will be done. If seventeen years residence in the Valley have taught us any one thing, they have taught us this: That friendship and community Interest is not bounded by the artifi cial confines of any political entity. • • • LET’S ALL GET out and hustle for business. Not a man in business in this Valley today who needs the help of city ordinances to get that business. And not a man in business in this Valley today who will not be hurt more by city ordinances such as tAoie we have been discussing than \ ::l be benefited. Plenty of Brownsville people buy plenty things in Harlingen. Plenty Harlingen people buy plenty things in Brownsville. It’s one of those 50-50 propositions. And applies not only to Harlingen and Brownsville but to every other Valley community H i ’en and Browmsville have bet;, ti as the example of the parUctn*. case in point. Just as easy could we have pick ed almost any other two Valley cities. • • • THERE S OUR STORY and we are sticking to It. Shower down! We expect you to.

Sterling and would receive his signature if placed before him came last night when he said he believed it was a good law. He indicated he would not reconvene the legislature to re peal the law if other cotton states failed to fall In line. With definite assurance that Tex as would adopt an acreage reduc tion measure, ranging fre one fourth to one-third of the culti vated crops, interest or the south was shifting t<\ other state, where acion on th. cotton program was expected within the next few weeks.
