The Kaw Valley Corral of Westerners International met Oct. 11. Stitt Robinson introduced the speaker, Ellen Gold, Kansas University communications studies professor emeritus.

The question of the evening was, Who said, “Sometimes I think this country would be better off if we could just saw off the Eastern Seaboard and let it float out to sea”? Dick Moore supplied the answer by naming Barry Goldwater.

Gold’s presentation was the “Use of Western Themes in Presidential Politics.” Harry Truman made the famous whistle stop campaign throughout much of the West in 1948 blasting the “Do-nothing congress.” Ronald Reagan named everyone as Westerners as he campaigned for election and re-election.

The next meeting will be Nov. 8. For more information, contact Eldon Herd (sheriff) at 865-4049 or
