FORTY-THIRD YEAR—No. 180
By RALPH L. BUELL
WEDNE8DAY, THURSDAY,
just two days left in which to be
come affiliated with the greatest
order on earth—
The Association of Free and Un
trammeled Wlelders of the Ballot
in the State of Texas.
Initiation dues, $1.75
Benefits—The right to criticise
and the satisfaction of belonging
among the ranks of full fledged
citizens.

* m m
AND 8TILL ANOTHER BIT
about taxes.
Your current taxes—that Is for
the year 1934—are due Just as they
have always been due, and must be
pairf on or before January 81st, 1935
to avoid penalty and interest as
sessments.
Remission that has been granted
by the legislature applies only to
taxes that became delinquent prior
to August 1. 1934.
So in case you have been labor
ing under the'impression that remis
sion of penalty and interest applied
to currently due taxes—you have
been wrong.

LATEST DEMAND ON THE
part of Valley fishermen—
Is for parking rules applying to
fishermen on Valley beaches.
According to reports reaching this
desk.
There is hardly room enough to
go around since fishing has become
a young paradise for the plscator
ially inclined.
• • •
THIS COLUMN IS MORE IN FA
vor of a law calling for the licens
ing and bonding of shippers and
buyers of fruits and vegetables than
ever before.
We understand that there is some
question as to the advisability of re
taining the bonding feature of any
bill that may be presented before
the present session of the legisla
ture.
Reason for abandoning the bond
ing feature is given as Inability of
so many Valley shipper* to make a
surety bond.
And that reason, my friends, is
the main reason we would insist
on retaining the bonding feature.
If any shipper in this Valley is
unable to make a surety bond, that
shipper should be refused a license
to buy fruit and vegetables from
Valley farmers.
That sort of shipper is Just the
%Jrt of shipper that this section can
well get along without.
• • •
WE ARE TOLD THAT PRO
gresa is being made in drawing the
bill.
Again we suggest that the mea
sure be completed as quickly ss
possible
And sent to Valley legislators for
immediate introduction.
It takes time to get bills passed,
and there will be controversy enough
over the bill—
Without having It handicapped by
the time element.
VALLEY CABBAGE GROWERS
are asked to hold for a price of $20
per ton. _ _ ..
As we remarked yesterday, if
Valley cabbage was worth $10 a
ton before the freeze—
It ought to be worth three times
that much now. .
At least it ought to be worth
twice that much now.
We have an idea that after the
“sorry ” cabbage la off the market.
And the terminals find out Just
how little of the new crop there is
in the Valley and th^ Robstown
Corpus Chrtsti area—
The price will seek a higher level.
Certainly $15 a ton seems too low.
• • •
THIS THOUGHT COMES TO
us:
Will the Valley shippers who are
fighting pro-ration, who seek to al
low a flood of Valley grapefruit to
overwhelm the markets of the coun
try, will these shippers take the lead
| in promoting an advertising pro
gram to Increase consumption to the
point of the shipments they would
like to have allowed?
There is just one way to establish
Texas citrus fruit on the markets,
by advertising it and advertising it
the country over.
Money will be required, lots of it.
California is spending over a mil
lion dollars for this purpose, the
Valley is spending nothing.
Florida is spending, everybody—
every section—except the Valley—is
advertising its citrus fruits.
Will we?
Or wont wt?
