This column was published in Jan. 1934. The conventi:::re- ferred to was a meeting of the North Dakota Press Ammei- ation In this column hob made his first announcement to run for the legislature, which he did, winning the election in the fall and serving his first term in the 1935 session. X X X I attended a convention last week. A convention, as you probably know. is where a group of people meet to pass a flock of resolutions. Up to now rye never heard of a re- solution that was put into practice, but that doesn&apos;t mean anything. The world is full of things I've ne- ver heard of and perhaps it may be that you've heard of dozens of reso- ]utions that really amounted to something more than a collection of well-worded phrases. X X X But, be that as it may, conven- tions give a lot of pretty good peo- ple an excuse to get together and -have a pretty good time. I'm in favor of 'era. They make it possible folks to get better acquainted. When you really know a person, 99 times out of 100 you're going to like hin£ ° X X X aforemeioned conventto as R happened, was in Bismarok There was the usual banquet which had an unusual feature in that (ac- cording to the toastmaster) two ex- governors delivered talks, one (Geo. Sharer) being a past ex.governor, and the other (Wm. Langer) being our future ex-governor. Personally, I like both men. Politically, I thought George Shafer was a punk governor and I likewise feel confi- dent that there are better governors to be had than Wn Langer. What we need down in Bismarck, Mr. & Ml. ?Voter, according to my way of thinking, is a good Democratic gov- el.nor ltke Honest John Burke. But that's another tory. X X In addition to listening to the two distinguished speakers exchange good natured Jibes, we availed our- selves of an opportunity to visit the new capitol building. Although there remains much work to be done on the interior as yet. never- theless, it is enough near comple- tion to get a very good idea of its ultimate utility and beauty. It is my opinion that the eapltol comnton is rendering good service. North Dakota is going to have a capitol of which we may indeed be prou& I can foresee difficulties, however, when our lectors gather there neXt January. Some of them are bound to get lost in the intricate mazeof halls and corridors and wander around for days, possibly weeks. x x x I suggest the first bill passed would provide for the state pur- chasing several large St. Bernard dogs, ach with a flask of brandy and some food tied to its: eoUar. SuCh dogs are trained to biId & succor to persons lost  hc mountains of Switzerland. I'm al- most certain that some of our legis- lators are going to require such aid & succor when they lose their way in our new capitol building. X X X a matter of fact, I may intro- such,_ a bill as outlined above IL I m going to be a candidate f representative from this district, and I herebY hrow my hat into the I ring. You'll hear a lot more about I my candidacy later but it will suf- fice for the present to announce that my sloga will be: "A Raw Deal for All.' We've heard many candidates for public office promise constituents a square deal. Fre- quently we've elected them. Many and oft times we've sent represen- tatives to Bismarck to represent us. And did they represent us? Heh! hehJ Don't make me laugh! X X X I believe voters are getting tired of all this "square deal" ballyhoo. I'm going to promise them a raw deal. Anyhow they'll have nothing to lose and if perchance they don't get as raw a deal as they expect & fear, they will be pleasantly sur-" prised, X X X back to the capitol. I But to get have a lot of facts and flgure be- fore me with which I hesltate to bore you. For instance, the daen. slozm of the building are 389 foet long, 178 feet wide and 241 feet high, It contains 4,3400000 Cubic feet of r- and has 80 per cent of usable  as compared to 29 l_,r .cent of usable spae in Minnesota s capitol. NOrth Dakota lignite is used for fuel and at present about 17 tons are bum each day, about half the amount to be used once the building is fully  The cost per cubic foot is 46 cents, compared with $1.00 per cubic foot for Neb- raska's capitol and $1.10 per cubic foot for Louisiana's. X X X .Perhaps such data is not of great interest to the average person. Per- sonally I was more intereted in the sign on a certain door in the new building. It read: KEEP OUT! Fan Demcers Dressing Room I.[ X X I've never seen a fan dancer's dressing room. or perhaps it should properly called an "undressing room." I tried to get some informa- tion on the subject but the door was locked and no one seemed to be available to give me desired infor- mation. Can it be that Governor Langer intends to install a fan dan- cer in the new capitol? If so, I pre- dict some of the wives of our legis- lators are going to have something to say before the old man seeks election or re-election. X X X Aslde from the business sessions and banquets, every convention worthy of the name should have an outstanding singer of songs. The Press Association is particularly fortunate in this respect that it has as s m'nber H. D. (Happy) Paul- son, editor of the Fargo Forum. , It-sums-that Happy had lost a very dear friend, a lady known as morals but in all likelihood she is ] no fool and would hardly risk vis- t iting the Leader lest somebody put t the finger on her for five per cent of something or other. o The COUNty treasurer sent out personal property tax statements this week. If you recall, there was some promise made to reduce taxes by certain officials before the last election. Yet, I find the personal property tax bill of The Press has has jumped from $83.03 in 1932 to $122.36 in 1933. a 30% increase. How about it, Mr. Governor? Or if you ain't at fault, who is? That's all I want to know. • $ $ Parting shot...
