Wants National Aid For
Editor of the Me senger: D
Feeling the great necessity for
the draining of our lands, I be
lieve the best and most reliable
way to obtain this would be for th
the Governments, State and Na
tional to come to the relief of the i
farmers by dredging all the prin
cipal natural drains.
Not only that this would in- d
crease the aoreage in 3ultivatioun,
but would immensely increase the
crop production and would make l
the building and keeping of our
public highways in better coudi- to
tional at les cost.
This matter is one of great im
portance to the entire country and t(
I believe the departments of Agri
culture of State and Nat.on could t(
do nothing better than to give,
serious attention to this all im
portant matter of drainage. If a
this is done, prosperity and pro.
gress will surely follow. I

Grand Pointe, La.
)r. G. W. Martin,
lv dear friend:
I am writing this to inform you
hat I very much regret the fact
hat my withdrawal as a candi
ate for Police Jury in the 5th
card of this Parish has deprived
our son Wade faction of a candi
ate on his ticket. After consi
oring my action I decided that
he place didn't suit me and it was
4etter that I should not run. I
lidu't know that there was a cer
ain time limit for the tiling of no.
nination papers. Thinking that
WVade Martiu still had ample time
u select a man to replace me I
set in my resignation, expecting
o write you to that effect.
Again let me assure you that I
sas not influenced or bought in
my way but that my lack of fam- 1I
liarity with the law is the cause
,f my withdraw I. Had I known ij
hat it was too late to select anoth- 1
Pr candidate I would have made
the fight. Although I have with. Ij
irawn, I promise you my unquali- 1
lied support for your son Wade. (
As ever your friend, j
