THE PRICE Less Than The Cost of A Pack of Cigarettes A Day changes now being made in our town bring a twinge of nostalgia to us old timers. The most outstanding change that we are referring is now taking place on the Texas Power and Light Company property. The moving out of some of the houses in the "Big and Little" villages and the erection of the huge tower. to support the "big line" as it ttlreads its way through the south section of town. We well remember when all that area of lan,! now oc'- cupied by the Company was nothing but a swamp land that became almost impassible in the winter time. A few widely scattered farm houses were located south of what is now referred to as the No. 1 bridge. With the coming of the T. P. & L. in 1924, the terrain changed. A huge lake was built to furnish water for the cor- poration; bridges constructed for access to the "island ;" so many lovely white houses for employees built that it has always been called "White City;" superb landscaping done so that huge sprawling pecan trees completely shaded the winding blacktop driveway with every conceivable kind of flowering shrub literally banked on either side and recrea- tion facilities of a swimming pool, picnic areas, soft ball court, tennis courts and cabins were all planned with an eye to please. It was always such a delight to drive through the "big village" especially in the spring time when the aroma from the flowering shrubs was heavenly and many a ro- mance has blossomed there. Now all this is changing. Only three houses remain in the "little village" and four of those in the "big village" have recently been moved out. These changes have taken place with the advent of the new 240,000 kilowatt steam electric generating unit the company is in the process of constructing on the island. As we note these changes, we can't help but feel a pang of regret but we also gladly bow to progress. The four houses from the "big village" will remain in or near the Trinidad area as they were purchased by Mr. and Mrs.-Pat Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Buster Airheart, Mr. and Mrs Bill Doubleday and Mr. and Mrs. Billy Gunnells. We are still receiving queries as to how much money the Volunteer Fire Department made on their New Years Eve Ball and even though we have never gotten a direct answer, the nearest we can figure it is around $100. When a fellow is so busy he can't take time off to do a little fishing every once in a while, he is just too blame busy and gets kinda hard to live with. That is precisely our predicament now especially when we hear reports of some lovely catfish being caught at the T. P. & L. lake. Wouldn't some fresh hot fried catfish, icy cold onion rings, hot corn- bread and coffee tast good? Shucks just when we've found an extra minute, like everyone else it seems, we have to come down with the flu bug, and right now we feel we'd have to get better to die.
