By LOIS KELSO
ONE OF THE MOST absorbing sociological documents I've seen in a long
time appeared recently in a trade blurb put out by one of the better-
known recording companies.
This was "The Life Story of Merle Travis," a cowboy singer who is
declared to be "more than just another routine cowboy singer because
he has a folk music quality that the average hillbilly or wide-open-spa-
cer doesn't have." His writing also is distinctive, having a quality that
the average hillbilly, wide-open-spacer, or ghost-writer definitely does
not have.
I NE CAN ALMOST hear the guitar in the background as Mr. Travis be-
gins . . "Well, sir, I don't know till this day just why, but I was born
one mornin' just before sun-up in a ol' house the folks up aroun' Rose-
wood, Kentucky, call the 'Ol' Frack Place'." This thoughtful interest in
the mystery of the purpose of life stamps Mr. Travis as a far-from-average
cowboy artist.
Mr. Travis' economic philosophy seems to be of the back-to-the-
land school. His father started life raising "tobaccer" but later went
into the coal mines. He is quoted as saying that, "I wished I'd a stayed
on the farm and never seen a dad-gum coal mine."
R. TRAVIS' APPROACH to the problem of racial adjustment is also
unusual. The Travis family left the 01' Frack Place for the 01' Little-
page Place, where their landlord was a colored man.
"His name was Uncle Rufus Littlepage and he and his wife, Aunt
Roena, lived in a little ol' shack down under the hill. When he'd come
to collect the rent, he'd go around to the back door and knock. Mom
would open the door. 01' Rufe would take off his hat, grin, an' bow
down and say, 'Good mawnin', Missus, could I please hav' d'rent?' "
From now on I shall think of this happy solution to the matter of
racial prejudice as the "back-door policy." Its one drawback is that it does
require a back door.
R. TRAVIS closes his saga on a note of determined realism. "I don't
know yet just how the public will take my little recordin' efforts, but
I've got my .fingers crossed and I'm gonna give 'er all I got. Momnusta say,
'Always do your best. That's all a mule can do.' I reckon' she was right."
I wouldn't worry about it, Merle. If the public doesn't take to your little
recordin' efforts, you can make a fortune with that little o1' typewriter.
