Bow To Borrow Money From A
1. Go in. ai.k for the president,
but don'et let him know that you
need any money. Pass the time of
day with him, ask him what he
thinks cotton will be next fall, and
don't fall to tell him about the pret
ty weather we are now having.
2. Mention the fact that your
wife and all 9 of your children are
well and happy and raring to go.
Speak of your 4 mules, and explain
that they weigh over 1,000 pounos
each, and don't forget that you have
already caught up with your work—
that you won’t have to buy any feed
