Like all South Texas countv and regional fairs this year, the Winter Garden Fair is a Centennial event. Friday evening's climax will be a pageant dramatizing Frio County history.

Reward- ing the work of its volunteer fire- men and the citizens' co-operation, the State Insurance Commission long ago granted New Braunfels exceptionally low premium rates. For years it has been accorded the maximum discount allowable for a ]o-.v fire-loss record. It was one of 31 South Texas cities to share in the increase from 15 to 25 per cent discount. That benefit alone reduced the nolicv-holders' aggre- gate bill by a year. TN a community celebration New Braunfels lately honored the men to whom it owes those bene- fits and 'ts reputation as a fire- safe city. An historical pageant, band concerts, orations, rares, a water carnival, a baseball game, an athletic meet in which neighbor cities' fire departments competed and a grand ball marked the occa- sion. The citizens were reminded how, 50 years ago, Herman Seelo, chairman of the waterworks coin- mittee, called a mass-meeting which led to the organization of two hose and one hook and ladder how the residents contributed money to buy carts, hose and ladders and to install two fire-bells. Today New Braunfels has a central fire station, a branch station and motorized equipment operated by paid firemen; but 05 volunteer fire-fighters remain on the active list and the old volun- teer spirit still dominates the de- partment.

"If Fascism or Communism or Nazism, now dominating the affairs of the European continent, should accept a single principle of dem- ocracy the whole vast fabric of absolute power would cave in over night. "On the other hand, once dem- ocracy opens the dykes to arbitrary power, surrenders the basic prin- ciples upon which !t rests, every other principle of democracy stands in peril. As recent history in Eur- ope discloses, it would be but a briuf time until the last vestige- of liberty would be extinguished."
