The giant of a man was gentle and matters of the heart like family and home came first. He loved all young people- Jimmie and Cora were his most important topics of conversa- tion when he could be led into sharing his own family joys. Once he called the office and said, "Editor, I was just sitting here talking to Cora and I told her I was going to give you a big old yankee dime next time I see you, so we decided I'd better call and warn you." Through the years he became one of the faces I searched for at meetings where no other women were present because he had such a special way of mak- ing me feel that was just where I should have been.

Jim Allen To Head Cedar Lake Riders Jim Allen was elected to head the Cedar Creek Riding Club as president in the Fri- day, January 2, meeting in the Malakoff agriculture sdmol building. Allen replaces Ralph Carter who served in that capacity through last year. Each offic- ial of the orgun is elect- ed to serve a one year term. Oher officers named were Vernon Kelly as vice presi- dent; Beth Kelly, secretary; Mattie Gallegos, reporter and Ralph Carter and Raymond Gallegos as pivot setters. Those elected to serve on the board of directors were Olen Miller, Olin Dukes, Milburn Holt and Bobby Jones.

When the weather permits, they gather at the arena grounds located north of Malakoff and ff conditions become unfavor- able, they adjourn to the local fire station. In 1967, not long after organ- ization of the club, the mem- bers secured a nine acre tract of land north of town for a pernmnent arena on which they constructed a pen. Since that time, they have cleared the Indebtedness and began new of 1970 Texas Power & Light'Com- pany today warned customers to beware of persons posing as TP&L employees who seek to make home electrical re- pairs for a fee. In one recent instance two "Power Company men" ap- proached an elderly Van Zandt County woman at her home and said they had traced some electrical difficulties to her re- sidence. She allowed them to inspect her home, and they shortly reported that she required a new "connection box." The men said they would install a used box, but would not guar- antee it, for $45. The woman explained that she would have to go get the money, and upon returning home she discovered the men had left, apparently suspect- ing that she was going to notify aut'horities. As a result of this and pos- sible future misrepresentations TP&L suggests to its custom- el'S: 1. Require identification of anyone representing himself as a TP&L employe. All TP&L service trucks have the Com- pany emblem on the door. 2. TP&L does not make home electrical repairs. This job is performed by the local electrical contractor of your choice. 3. If you have doubts about the identification of an alleged TP&L empioye, call the local TP&L office immediately. Allen Records 48,4 began years ago to set the wheels in motion to attain that goal and on November 13, 1968, a contract was let in the amount of $511,000 for the con- struction of a high school, band hall and cafeteria.

"Within the near future, I will present to the people an up to date, detailed report of the condition of our county and also our plans for the future. I know they will be proud of it and will want to continue with good government," he said. Inches Rain In '69 Although the first day of the n,w year stared out cear and crisp, the ensuing days have reverted back to the type of weather experienced in Western Henderson County during a major portion of 1969, that of drizzle of ram. Rainfall for the year ended amounted to a total of 48.4 inches as recorded by the Rev. E. P. Allen who lives at 121 North Terry Street in Mal- akoff, The ministers figures show that Malakoff received over four inches more rain than was logged at the Texas Power & Light plant.

In 1946, some 56.49 inches were recorded by the plant which was the iarg= est amount to fall in any single year since the com- pany started keeping recordds in 1941. Since that time, 1963 proved to be the driest year with a total of only 23.16 inches, how- ever, certain amounts were recorded for each month of the year. Rainfall by the month through the year of 1969, ac- cording to Mr. Allen's records, show that 2.7 inches fell in January; 2.8 in February; 5.7 in March; 8.4 in April; 9.2 in May; 1.6 in June; no mea- surable amount in July; .8 in August; 3.3 in September; 5, in October; 3.1 in November and 5.7 in December.
