Z admit I may have been driving a bit fast, but I would like to l}oint out that I am a Congress- man all . . . Judge -- "Ignorance is no ex- (;use!" i Just Where Do You Stand, Governor (~ov. L. C. Hunt opened his campaign for the Democratic nom- ination for the U. S. ~;enate with a declaration that the Repu'bllean congress was a "do-nothing con- gress which could ~be charged with criminal negltgence of the peo- ple's ,good." It must be assumed that he was criticizing congress because it did little to combat in, flation. 'The question immediately aris- es, What would Governor Hunt have done if he were in the sen- ate? Voted for price controls? Voted for wage controls? Voted for rationing? Name-calling during a cam- paign is standard practice, but it doesn't enlighten the voter very much. We'd like to heal- Gov- ernor Hunt state his position def- initely on some of t.he issue today. We'd like ~o know where he stands. And be can do it.

We'd also like to hear some more from the governor on that subject. That article from the Laramie ~Reptlblican reminds us of a" rec- ent one we read in the Torring- ton Telegram with the heading Public Forest Lands Or Baronial Estates During the coming senatorial campaign, the people of 'Wyoming are not going to ~e allowed to forget that Gov. Lester C. Hunt (Dem.) candidate for the seat now held by Senator Edward V. Rc~bertson (Rep.), is on record as advocating that national for- est lands ~oe turned over to pri- vate owners or to the states. Republican leaders will see to that---they ah'eady are doing so, in fa,et. Governor Hunt's advocacy of the abolition (ff national forests dates 'back three years at least according to records of cougress- ional--public lands hearings. If there is any state in the coun- try where a program of ending federal ownership of forests might be expected to be popular with voters, it is "Wyoming. Livestock is the dominant industry in the state. How does it happen, then, that the opponents of Governor Hunt dare to use his position on na- tional forests as a major cam- ,palgn issue? And how does it happen that the issue is ,being raised by those who want to re- elect Senator Robertson who un- [like Governor Hunt, is a stock- I man himself, the only stockman in the upper house of con,gress? The explanation, we believe, is that even among stockmen them- selves only a small percentage of ranch owners, representing the most extreme advocates of the right of private exploitation, ever really favored doing away with the federal guardianship over the nation's forest assets. Those assets include not only timber resources but water re- sources, which are still more 0recious, and the recreational re- sources which are the stock in trade of a vast tourist business whieh is rapidly ~urning into a cear-ai'ound sourceof revenue. Many stockmen in Wyoming and elsewhere like to complain wbout the administration of the forests. Quite a number, espec- ially amon,g the larger ranchers, wouhl like to :be able to :buy Taylor grazing lands, as contrast- ed with forest lands. But ill Wy.oming, as elsewhere in the west, the average stock- man, the average farmer, the av- erage townsman, we believe, would resist any program such as that advocated by Governor Hunt. They know there is a 'public in- terest in the protection of for- est watersheds whic is superior to the private interests of any single group and that if the west Is to retain its distinctive char- acter as the nation's 'playground our forests cannot be converted in- to private baronial estates with fences along every roadway and with ".No Trespassing" signs on every gate. Branding Iron This supposedly happened in a Kentucky mountain polling place but might have happened most anywhere. It just goes to show that a perfectly legal-sounding little word may have different meanirLgs. Anyway: "What party do you affiliate with?" the election clerk asked the mountain gal. "Have I gotta answer that?" she frowned. "I.f you want a ballot, you do." '%Va-al, then, I don't want no ballot, 'cause the party I affiliates with ain't divorced yet." Just Imagine ! ! [ The man took the object of his aftee/ions to attend an open air opera on a beautiful clear and warm summer evening. During the first act, he found it neces- sary to excuse himself. He asked an usher as "to where the men's room might be found. "Turn to left and walk down to the :big oak tree and there it is." The man did as he was told. In due time he returned to his seat. "'Is the second act over?" he asked his girl. "You should know," she haughtily reolied. "You were in it!" The little boy came running from the house calling for help, and explaining that his father wa s fighting another man..inside. Upon entering and watching the two men battle it out, a passerby inquired of the boy as to which one was his father. In reply the youth remarked: "that's what they are fighting cver," x-- Oak Creek Mr. and Mrs. Bert Rol~bins of Belle Fourcbe were guests at the Charles Pearson ranch on Friday.
