SAN ANTONIO BUGLE
Is .. kud tn tVi rqriin for comments, and this
weekend I got an earful. The farmers for some time have been
kicking about theSecretary of Agriculture, and last night it
was the Secretary of- or Postmaster General. I have been a
pajron of the Post Office for 85 years and even knew one
Postmaster General personally, and though not liked he is the
onBr one that didn't run it in the red.
That was Albert Sydney Burleson, and I want to tell you
how he did it. By raising the letter rate to foreign countries
to" cents and killing ordinary letter mail with no reciprocity
arttwhere. Just last month I received three regular and two
aialmall letters from Panama, but if I answer same way it costs
me?' 8 cents to a country supposed to be our closest and best
frind. I also got letters from most of Central America and
Mexico with local mall rate.
Hhe stock market is a little wobbly and it's not easy as in
1928 when I said get out of the market, you are over-inflated.
It broke more than one man who didn't believe it. With all the
government spending and that new satellite craze we should
spend plenty of money. The spending of money makes good
times. Hear of a lot of new refineries to go up that will use
800 to 100 men, and everything helps. Public work will be
ptantiful, both local and national. Ka u.;-
In the twelve and a half years since I returned here I
nfcver saw the ground in such a fine shape for a bumper crop,
and there is no gloom on the face of the farmers.
There is a surplus of resident labor and a shortage in the
farms. If they can cut the red tape farm labor can easily be
upplTed from Mexico. With all our highways and true trans transportation

all with a single Diesel engine.
I still a railroad man, and never forget the many fifteen-to-totfenty

NEW YORK (NEA)-With rare

singer. What happens to the bright-
eyed, ambitious boys who hit it
big for a while, then fade out?
"By the time a singer is in
his late 30s or early 40s," syas
ex-singer 811 Darnel, "he eitmr

he 11 be headed for the riowery."
Darnel, now 44, was a orettv
fair singer. He never was a top
star, out ne nad some pretty suc
cessful recrods, some rabid fan
clubs, some good years and some
bad ones. But, when he was 43.
he decided there was no future
for him in performing. And he
was lucky; he stepped into a
good spot as national sales ma
nager and director of promotion
for Jubilee Records.
"It's wonderful," he says, with
a big smile. "Now 1 know I can

to pay it. There was a time when
I'd loo' in the window of a
delicatessen and stare at a salami
and wonder whether or nor I
should grab a brick and break
the window. I m not exaggerating.
He didn't break the window, of
course. And now he's ah executive,
sitting at a desk and handling
big business. Every once in a
while, he 11 made a record for

"The Copa could offer me $5,

a close 2-0 win over tne ween
Devils in what they hope will be

Reoorts reaching the Atlantic

much of the sticking along with
So far this year Cristobal's hit
