LETZ The A&M Future Farmers of (Ed. Note: Mrs. Hesser is re ferring to our editorial on the hospitality being offered the Madisonville Cattleman Associa tion’s most anti-Texas individual Mr. jHaHoran. , For non-Philadelphia visitors, Chestnut Street is one of the more cosmopolitan drags in the “friendly" city, while Race Street is the main Negro district. We used the reference to Chestnut as a light suggestion that we would like to visit Phil adelphia again. After reading Mrs. Hesser’s letter we aren’t too sure. Maybe that old rebel malady of racial prejudice has seeped farther north than we thought. Thinking back on it all, it does seem that we recall Race Street for the pleasant music of Duke Ellington and Chestnut for the expensive drinks that were ser ved some of our fellow sailors and refused to; others. The friendly city is probably still just as cordial as ever, but it seems that even the metallic William Penn atop city hall has turned his back on Race Street and prefers to smile down at Chestnut.) ★ HITCH-HIKING Editor, The Battalion: In regard to Mr. William C.
