Its history is colorful I and unique in that it is one of two states in the Union resulting from three territorial acquisitions; In 1803 the north eastern part of our State became a part of the territory of the United States as a result of the Louisiana Purchase; In 1845 the south eastern part of Colorado was added as a result of the annexation of Texas; In 1848 the remainder of the State was ceded to us by Mexico. In 1876 it entered the Union as the 38th State. Five flags have flown over the area that now comprises Colorado, the flag of Spain, the flag of France, the flag of Mexico, the flag of Texas and the flag of the United States of America.

MICKIE SAYS total disruption unless the pet theor- ies of extremists are relegated to a back seat. With inflation gaining inexorably, the spectacle of one of the principal agencies established to Combat riing prices experimenting with the doc- trines of socialism, while the destin- ies of a hundred and thirty million people hang in the balance, is intol- erable. The production and distribution system in this country has been deve- loped to a state of perfection neve before attained in history. The re- sult has been evident in every Amer- ican home. Why, in the name of heaven, shouid this system be scrap- ped when we need it most? If given a chance, our arms and factories and our merchants will feed and clothe the country. They will do it inflation or no inflation. The only thing that could conceivably stop them would be hopelessly complex domination by so-called "war agen- cies," who would rather see Ameri- cans growing in rows than fighting for victory.

SWAIN : CARI WILL NOT RUN FOR GOVERNOR Because of the many statements that former Governor Carr may be a candidate for that position again he has authorized the column to state that he will not be a candidate for that position If he were offered the nomination he would not take it. The former governor met Gover- nor Vivian on the street the other day and told him the same thing. The object of Gov. Carr in making this statement public is that such a rumor is unfair to Governor Vivian as well as to himself. He served the state as governor four years and now wants to prac- tice law. Governor Carr will always take a hand in state and national politics but not as a candidate for the governorship. He has certain ideas regarding national matters which may cause him to aspire to at- t end the hext republican national' convention as a delegate where he can have a chance to present his ideas to the nation. That is the only ambition he has, so far as politics are concerned. GOVERNOR JOHN W. SHAWCROFT It was GoVernor Shawcroi't Wed- nesday of last week. Governor Vi- vian and Lieutenant Governor Hig- by had gone to Cheyenne to attend the Rodeo there, so that left John W. Shawcroft, who is President Ad Interum of the senate, governor. During the day he was the recipient of many callers, congratulations, telegrams and bunches of flowers. The reporters tried to get him to do something spectacular, such as firing the cvil service commission or nam- ing a new state welfare board, ut he jokingly refused to do either. DEWEY DID NOT INTEND TO THREATEN We are in receipt of a letter from Governor Thomas E. Dewey of NeW York in which he takes exception to the statement in our general story on the conference of governors wherein we said that his remarks at that conference sounded ,like a threat. The governor says: "I am quite surprised that you felt that my statement of the prob- lems attendant upon our getting grain from outside the Country for our dairy cows and poultry should have struck you as a threat. If we do not get grain for our dairy cows and poultry they will have their production sharply cut down and be slaughtered for meat' In that event the people of this state--in fact the one third of the nations population in the Northeast---will suffer seriously from the :lack of milk, butte?, cheese and ggs. This is our problem and I do hope it will be better understood generally. I hope if you are going through Albany you will give me a chance to discuss the situation with you more thoroughly. With Kindest Personal Regards, Thomas E. Dewey, Mr. Dewey's position was that they could not get feed for their dairy cattle and poultry in this country. That if they had to go to Canada for it, they would be compelled tq buy or build boats, which if' they did, it would be a long time before that t*rade would return to thecorn and wheat states of this country. He said it so positively that nearly all of the reporters and some of the governors, took it as a threat. It was his speech that started all of the discussion about the farmers re- fusing to sell their products at the i ceiling prices set in Washington. This idea strikes us, that either this column is read far more than we suspected or that Mr. ,Dewey has his ear to the ground far more than he admits.
