EDINBURG, Nov. 18 — An elimi- ‘
nation arrangement of some sort '
either a special primary or a
dkstrlct-wude convention, will be 1
utilized in the near future to j
select a single democratic candi
date for congressman of the 15th
Congressional District of Texas to
succeed Vice-Pres.-Elect John N
Garner of Uvalde.
This information was obtained
from an authentic democratic
source here Friday morning.
The source revealed further that

BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 18.-^*V-An
oriental flower bulb has been
found that will destroy rats and
harm nothing else.
Such is the report of the biologi
cal survey station here, where
bulb, known as red squill, ha
oome as a boom and a relief from
worry. It was not the discovery of
this station of the survey, how
ever, but presumably of the Denver
bureau, where officers here said it
had been given a thorough test.
Its o;xration Is based on the
discovery that rats seemingly can
not vomit.
As explained by George Kerr,
bureau staff member, it sets un a
violent irritation when eaten by
rats or other animals in mixtures
o; grain mash or other bait. Ah
other animals, once the irritation
starts, immediately eriT?„ the Ten
ure and are unharmed. Rats can't
do anything like that, however,
and perish from the effects.
The bulb itself is like an en
larged tulip bulb, three to five
inches in diameter and of orange
red color.
“It came as a relief to us.” Ker
said. ‘ We used to sit in dread
oi a request ip in eradica
tion of rats. With the old style
poison, it means almost invariably
the loss of valued cats, dogs or
other domestic animals, and there
was the constant danger of chil
dren being poisoned.”

Editor of The ('ongrejcationalist
The best of all lessons for study
are those which bring the great
truths and examples of the Bible
into the range of the immediate
problems of life today. Surely at
the present hour in America there
are no more immediate or greater
problems than those that are
associated with money—the use
of It on the part of those who have
it, and the problems occasioned by
its lack on the part of those who
do not have it.
Never, perhaps, in our national
life have there been greater or
more widespread discrepancies be
tween the situations of iieople than
there are today, and these discrep
ancies are no longer ol the sort
that can be attributed to the pos
session of certain qualities of
dtaracur, thrift, and energy, or
the lack ol these things.
The difference between many
people is not a difference of char
acter. or a difference of ab.lity, or
a difference of wilhngness o;
competency to serve society, but
simply a difference of status in
which the one person happens to
have a job and the other person
happens to be without.
7n the face of present conditions
we can no longer, even for a mo
ment. think that the unemployed
are the unemployable, and that
moneyless people are without
money because of some dira fault
in themselves or in their ways of
managing their lives.
We are face to face with serious
conditions which affect good and
bad alike; and in the face of such
conditions the elemental and ulti
mate responsibilities of human
brotherhood and solidarity are en
forced as they never were before.
• • •
It is here that the teaching of
the B.ble is clear and incisive, and
different, on the whole, from any
other teaching In life. The sug
gestion of modern society has lone
been that a man was ,ustr.cd in
pursuing his own ends and in seek
ing lUfiGfitt acforriknj (£ <
standards In fact, if he happened
to be successful, society was not
too scrupulous In surveying the
means by which he attained to
that success. Trickery and greea
and dishonesty In business have
too frequently been disregarded
where the man who practiced
i them became wealthy.
But when we look to the Bible
we are in another world—a world
; of clear cut and definite responsi
bilities in which a man has duties
toward his fellow men as well as
privileges of improving his owe
position. Our lesson is drawn from
varied passages of Scripture, but
all unite in emphasizing this re
sponsibility and the fact that un
less a man recognizes his social
obligations and responsibilities no
measure of wordly success eaa
Justify his life or make him m any
true sense noble.
The golden text particularly
strikes straight home m its inci
sive comment upon the lust of
possession: "Take heed and keep
yourselves from all covetousness:
for a man's life consisteth cot in
the abundance of the things which
he possesseth.*’ Luke 12:15.

It is not a time when we should
bo minimizing the importance ot
things. Money, or what money
represents is. after all. reallv im
jxmant as one ve;. clearly dis
covert if he does not happen to
have it.
But it is equally true that to
have more than one needs and not
to share it with those who are i>
dire need is bad for the soul of
the man who possesses, as the
condm^i of need is bad for both
soul and body of the one who has
not the very necessities of life.
If we could turn to the Bible
standard of values and the Bible
of living and aeek to bring
the things that are needful and
worthwhile into the use and ser
vice of ail. what a vast change we
could soon effect in a nation,
where at present mill.ons of peo
ple are in want or are finding
relief only through the ministry of
public or private charitv?

that they lavored a convention
system of selecting the democratic
candidate in the race. Still other
leaders in various sections of
Speaker Garners 23-county dis
trict. extending from Uvalde to
Brownsville, have stated they fa
vor the convention method but
that they were not then able to
speak for their people as a whole.
The large number of announce
ments for the important office
has impressed democratic leaders
throughout the district with the
need for a single democrat upon
whose candidacy to center the
democratic campaign. Without this
solidity of effort, they believe
there is too much opportunity for
a republican candidate.
Hidalgo county has already heard
that at least five of her well-known
citizens have announced or are be
ing considered as possible candi
dates for the office expected to dc
vacated by Speaker Garner. Gor
don Griffin. McAllen attorney and
long a leader in the Good Gov
ernment party, will seek the Diace.
His formal announcement will be
forthcoming in a few days.
