How- ever, at the first meeting of the new officials, lots will be drawn to see which two alderman will remain with the mayor for his 2 year tenure and the terms of the remaining three will expire within a year's time. "In this manner, three exlSerienced councilmen will he serving the city at all times," the attorney said. The procedure is standard for newly incorporated towns. When incumbent Mayor Perry was contacted on Tuesday, he informed the News that he would not be a candidate for re- election and other members of the council declined to take a definite stand until further meetings have been held. James R. Main, who is pres- ently completing plans for an opening date of a business he is - establishing near SCeve's Place on Highway 274, declared that he would run for a seat on the council, but had not filed at this writing.

Mrs. Russell Yates, office em- ployee, dovered the broken window when she came to work Monday morning and alerted the law. Carter also told the News that five boys from the St. Paul In- dustrial Training School in Caney City had been charged with the breaking and entering and thievery of Warren's Gro- cery and Market in Trinidad on Tuesday, January 27. He said ,the case had been .turned over to District Attorney Mack Wal- lace. In that robbery, the boys con. fished a quantity of clothing, frozen packaged meats, other articles of small value and a- round $60. in loose change from the cash register. Deputy Tom Goodell assisted Carter in investigating the War- ren robbery. New Cafe Features Home Cooked Foods Another new business has opened in Malakoff -- Randy's Cafe -- owned and operated by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wilson who moved here in August of last year. The care is located on the western most lot of the 700 block of MRcham Street, just east of Drake's Allied Fill- ing Station and entrance to the dining area is reached from the front door facing Mitcham. The door is opened t 6:30 a.m. to provide breakfasts which are served with home made biscuits, then a complete- ly home cooked lunch and even- ing meal. Through the day, short orders are also available. Mrs. Annette Wilson does all the cooking which includes mak- ing homemade breads, pies and cakes. She says the specialty of the house is her pla lundms with foods pre-seasoned. Fea- tured also are homemade e chilados, tacos and other Mex- Ican dishes whose recipes she learned while owning and op- erating an eating establishmeut A last look of what was left earlier this week of the former Malakoff High School.

The theft was said to have oc- curred after city policeman Billy Kay Davis had made his rounds at 2:30 a.m. It was dis- covered when Raymond Reese arrived Wednesday morning to open the doors of his grvce'y store for business. "first glance" inventory were at least $600. in money, an under- termined amount of government bonds, and checks and two 38 caliber pistols, all taken from the dry goods firm. All the money contained in the safe, said to be $500. or more and six or eight watches were some of the major losses felt by the groce store. Since all the drawers were emptied, desks ransacked and merchan- dise in disarray, it was expect- ed to be some time before the total loss could be determined. The knobs were found to have Jerry Lindamood b.o knocked off and pins punched in on the safe in each department.

Western Henderson County has experienced a rash of rob- beries within the last two weeks with the Dr. P. T. Kilman Cli- nic, Warren's Grocery and Mar- ket, Dr. Joe Roseobloom's Tri- nidad office, all being hit with- in that time. Only about ten days ago, Kirby Grocery also discovered the loss of $100 from a cash drawer. Dr. Kilman Loses Horses The News was informed on Wednesday morning of the loss of two valuable horses owned by Dr. P. T. Kilman. Each was valued .at at least $800. The animals were said to have been electrocuted sometime Sunday when electrical wires fell across them after presum- ably rotten Texas Power and Light pole fell to the ground. Helen McIin, office em- ployoe at Kilman Clinic, said the hair from the horses' body was curled around the wires. She said the accide happen- ed on property south of town that is owned by Dr. Kilman. The Territory Traveler by CHARLSIE BOCELL I am a latfle4ale-becate that's my job. And since the CRy of Seven Poh'R,s has approv- ed an ordinance to publish ordi- nances by the posting method, I told Billy Ray Stevem (coun- cil member flmre) I'd tell about those posted Tuesday for free. The man of economy said "Go 'head on". First of all he posting method of pubUcation is legal in some cases where there is no news- paper competed of general cir- culatien in the area. Cherges are made for publishing public notices in newspapers. The post. ing method requires the ordi- nances to be posted in three public places wRhin the hound- aries of the area dfecd. Seven Points posted, or were planning to post, six copies of the ordi- nances approved regarding the up-coming election. Scaning the notice briefly I observed two ordinances of par- ticular interest. One is that no write-in votes will be recognized in the April 4th election in which an entire slate of city officials is to be elected. The other is that a $I0. fee is required o[ all candidates seeking election to any of the posts. Several of the Seven Points cotmcil memhe said the $10. foe is being charged cand- idates to help defray the cost of the election, and that write- ins will not he recognized in or- der that all prospective cand- idates conform with the $10. filing fee ordinance. One cit- of Seven Points remarked that wrRe4n balloting was a lost cause anyway, and I re- minded him that Mrs. Opal Lewis was elected to the Trim Idad school board of trustees in recent years by an over- whelming majority by the write-in method. All area city elections will be held the first Saturday in April, and filing deadline is no lair than noon February 28. Ab- sentee ballots may be cast March 14 thru March 31. Residents of Seven Points (and other cities using the post- ing method) who are wanting to keen up with what is going on at City Hall should be checking the telephone poles, land mark- ers, popular business places, etc. in search of ordinance "publications", right Billy Ray? topics or interest in Seven Points were that the old "L Waller School House" burn- ed to the ground Sunday. The Seven Poin fire departmont arrived too late to save the sturcture but stood by to isolate the fire from adjoining areas. Natives say the school was buiR in 1911 by Waller and sold to the district for $5. The school operated until 1944 or 45 when the dstrict corsolidated with M, the same year Billy Ray Stevens flunked first grade! The building later was used as a community gathering place. New businesses are continu- ing to crop up at Seven Points. Among them is Sue's Beauty Shop located north of Steve's on 274. Sue opened her shop in December. She was formerly associated with Jonnie Wood's shop in Mabank. She and her husband Larry and 18 month old son Bryan make their home in Seven Points. Larry com- mutes  Dallas to his work at Sears. In north Seven Points all is well with Duck and Duke, and the stock room is neat and or- ganized -- which also seemed to he "big news".
