September 17, 1977 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

This article first appeared in the September 17, 1977 issue of the Daily Statesman. Topics included the accomplishments of outgoing mayor W.R. Murphy, cave-based air conditioning, Ruby Yates' poultry, the creation of an entirely new word, and speculation on the local real estate scene. --Pen

By Ed Waggener

Mayor W.R. Murphy has been a non-candidate for only three days now, and already his stock is rising. Even old enemies are saying good things about the Mayor now. It's almost a replay of the Harry Truman story. While Truman was alive, it was hard to find a Republican who would say a good thing for the man. Today, you hear more Republicans singing the praises of Harry Truman than you ever hear saying good things about their greatest vote-getter, Dwight Eisenhower. And Democrats are more sold on him than ever.

It's in the cards: Dr. Murphy will more and more be remembered as a great Columbia mayor.

For now, it's well enough that the public is now admitting that there has been just one awful lot of good come to Columbia because of the man, a scrappy politician whom Pete Walker first called "The Fighting Irishman."
