Way, read by Joe "Hoppy" Sullivan!
Monday, February 19, 1951
A foot and horseback, by train, car and plane one way or another --- I cover a lot of ground every year and run into all kinds of situations.
Friends often ask me why I donít jot down some notes about the places I go, things I see and hear, and the people I meet.
Well, a typewriter makes a pretty tight fit for a saddle bag, but Iím going to take a shot at newspaper columing.
Iím not an expert at any of the things most columnists write about. So donít expect me to solve the international situation --- even the experts arenít getting very far with that --- or to explain politics, or to predict anything. Iíll just write about the people and things I know, and maybe toss in a few words of what I think about them.
When Iím traveling around the column will be about real people and places and have a dateline from wherever I happen to go. The rest of the time Iíll write about Long Valley. Thatís not much of a town, but itís the post office closest to the Bar 20 Ranch. To get to Long Valley, you just follow the foothills south from the Ranch about six miles and turn right at the first black top road.
In 1951, Hopalong Cassidy had a daily column that
appeared in a number of newspapers across the country. Sagebrush Entertainment, Inc.
is pleased to share these columns with you and will present them on a weekly basis.
