What Would YOU Do If You Were Governor Of Texas?
By BROOKS PEDEN
Apparently, a great many Abilenians have either been sold on the idea that the governor of the state of Texas can’t dc anything, or they’re Just congenitally lazy.
The situation came to light yesterday after some 50 persons had answered the question “What would you do lf you were governor of Texas?" The consensus seemed to be “I’d pretend I was the president and go fishing?"
Maybe it’a Just the hot weather, or possibly they weren’t
serious, but anyhow, that’s what they said. Only one person had a definite program which he would put into effect and it was all of a destructive nature.
This man would: abolish the liquor control board, abolish the electric chair, abolish the poll tax, mage everyone work eight hours a day, no more and no less, and promise old age pensions of ISO per month without intending to make it effective.
But at least he had a plan.
However, perhaps the others were hitting nearer the truth
that the man with a plan, for a politician friend insisted that there was no use planning to do anything if you became governor because the governor couldn’t do anything anyhow.
One young lady secretary replied to the statement with: "I imagine Id get put out about the first time I tried to do anything."
A man exhaling a sigh of pleasant dreaming said "Id sink down in that easy chair in the governor s office, plant my feet on the desk, and let the other boys do the work."
A rather cynical young man replied "I’d sen out to the monied interests’ and go home ” Perhaps the most logical answer to the question came from a clerk who replied: “Well,
I’d Just line up with the legislators and do the best I could " Still another person, a serious minded, rather settled man, seemed to have absorbed something of ODaniel’s program of general conferences. “I’d spend a lot of time talking things over with different people,” was his idea “Whenever anything came
up I'd talk to first one person and then another, get their ideas on it, and maybe I d work out something pretty good."
A young woman became quite excited at the prospect of being governor because then she could “take a vacation and see a V t of sights." She was also quite enthusiastic over the prospect of getting to dedicate things like monuments and new postoffice*.
A practicing politician answered the question by saying “I certainly wouldn’t go around promising people I would do
things that I knew I couldn’t. Like paying everyone over 65 a pension of $30 a month when we don’t have the money."
A tired looking old man leaned back in his chair and said "nothing, son. nothing. Thats all any governor can do. About all a governor is good for is to go around making campaign promises during election year. They know they can’t keep em and we know they can’t keep em, but me like to hear em Just the same. A governo son is kinda like a king, he can’t
do nothin but put on a show for the people.”
But Just at that point, an office holder walked up to remark that “maybe the governor can’t do so much, but a governor with the legislature behind him can do plenty. Between them they can put more taxes on you rn a week than you can pay in the rest of your life. And then figure out a way to spend the money.”
But it would be nice to be governor right now. It s a swell time of year to go fishing.

Peace Efforts In Europe Gain Ground Again
Anniversary Of World War Finds Prospects Bright
Bv J. C. STARK LONDON. July 28— (AP)— Efforts to rid Europe of her chief menaces to peace were gaining ground today—just 24 years after the first world war declaration.
Today—as in 1914 when Austria-Hungary. backed by Germany, launched a war on Serbia that brought on the general conflict— Britain and Germany are the key powers in the European situation.
A friendly turn in the relations of these two powers bolstered European statesmen's hopes of averting a repetition of events of 24 years ago.
Britain’s move to mediate the Czechoslovak quarrel — with German consent—promised to lead to broader political talks between the two big power#.

MOSCOW. July 28— A*)— The Siberian newspaper. Pacific Ocean Star, tells of a “great purge" in the Soviet Russian far east to frustrate what the newspaper terms Japans efforts “to destroy our strength from the outside."
"The bolshevists of Primorsk province will smoke from their holes ail spies, wreckers and terrorists to the last man," the paper says.

The Pacific Ocean Star says:
“If Japanese rabble poke their noses into Primorsk province
they have only themselves to blame tor the consequences."
The newspaper declares the purge necessary because "Japanese imperialist isis resorted to their favorite methods of espionage and terrorism — first sending to Primorsk province fascist agents and Trotskyist and Bucharinlst spies and Terrorists

Investigation Of lekes Denounced As A 'Whitewash'
By OLEN C. CLEMENTS COLUMBUS, Tex., July 28 — (AP)—Fanners and bus.jess men, aroused against the lower Colorado river authority be* cause of crop-ruining floods, tonight heard charges the au-thority was negligent in its operation of Buchanan dam and that the investigation ordered by Secretary Ickes would amount to a “whitewash,”
TO MEET SATURDAY Speakers at a mass meeting demanded an independent investigation and picked Colorado county representative* to a meeting Saturday at, Austin which will discuss the flood situation.
Farmer# along the Colorado believe_,tq.e flood WM brightened by (ne release of flood waters from Buchanan lake. They charge the lake was allowed to remain full as the flood danger approached, and then released to add to the burden of the swollen stream.
J. D. Seymour of Columbus, member of the board of directors of the lower Colorado river control district, said in his opinion, based on an investigation made by E. O. Taulbee of Bay City and himself, the authority officials were negligent in not opening the flood gates | two or three days earlier.
He said he and Taulbee, president of the Bay City chamber of commerce, recently visited Buchanan dam.
"All they talked about up there when we were there was power, and they didn’t mention flood control except to tell us that we need never worry about flood# again on the lower Colorado; that the floods were definitely over. I just can't see that this flood was caused by anything but negligence."
Seymour charged Secretary Ickes believed in power only, and said many farmers favored a system of levees to protect the lowlands.
County Judge E. A. Arnim. Jr., of La Grange, said the investigation ordered by Ickes would not amount to anything because the department of the interior operated the dam.
