Junior.Senior Banquet The Senior Class of 1934 was royally en 'ertained on Friday evening, May 4, with the annual Junior-Senior banquet. A Japa- nese scheme was very cleverly carried out. The guests were escorted into a beautiful candlelighted room which had been decorated so per- fectly that one really felt as if he were visiting in a Japanese Vdlage. The favors were mina- tore Japanese fans, and the pro- grams and minues were made at. tractive by prints of Japanese scenes. Between courses this very in- teresting program was rendered in keeping with the Japanese motiff. ' '01 Little Sweetheart"- Hazel Beaird, Jessie Johnson, Edith Brown and Geraldine Gordon.

The Red- land Herald of Nacogdoches gives tl~e fcllowing biography of Mr. Davis: Roger Davis needs little intro- duction to the people of Nacog- doches county. He has served as county agent here for nearly two years. His splendid energy and enthu. siasm has carried him into every community of the county. Many of them he has had occasion to visit frequently. Ills work in th9 county since that time has been considered of exceptional value. It was around his ability and leadership that the Nacogdoches County Council of Agriculture was organized year and launched as an indepen- dent organization handling the farmers problems. Management of the organization has given Mr. Davis a leave of absence and he has opened an office over Kennedy's drug store. Hen. A. A. Scale is directing Mr. Davis' campaign. Orgardza- tions have been e~stablished in every one of the twelve counties in the district. Mr. Seale is an experienced campaigner. From now until the primaries he will drive an intensive campaign over the district. Having charge of the govern- ment's agricultural program in the county under the new deal has brought him in contact with practically every farmer in the county. The cotton plow-up, the corn- hog reduction program and gov. eminent cotton acreage leasing has made the office of the county agent the largest patronized and most frequently entered insti- tution in Nacogdoches during the past several months. In handling this vast amount of business, Mr. Davis has shown fine executive ability and has won the friendship and support of neraly every farmer in the county. It was from this contact that solicitation has come for him to enter the congressional race. Mr. Davis was born in Franklin county fifty years ago. He looks like it might have been only forty years ago. He finishjed common and high school in the county and then went to'the East Texas nor- mal at Commerce where he grad- uated with a B. S. degree. From school he went into teach- L'Ig. He saved every cent possi- ble from that paid him as a teacher and in a few years paid for a farm where he moved after five years teaching. The science of farming had ever held a great fascination for him. When he moved onto his own farm, he determined to make it pay better than the aver- age and set to work studying agriculture as he planted and tended crops. Books and papers on the sub- ject were constantly studied. Ex- periments were made and data kept almost like he were a stu- dent in an stranger. The charge of buck" shot struck the concrete pave- ment at close range and one of the large shot bounced back bury- ing itself in Sweeten's rlght leg. Flying flakes of concrete sprayed Cramer, who was standing near by, inflicting a number of minor but painful body wounds. "Boy's he Got me", Deputy Cramer, is reported to have said as the con- crete flakes struck him. Badly Frightened, the suspect- ed "Bad Man" hastened to re- veal his identity, giving his resi- dence as Kilgore, and his occupa- tion "An Oil Man". He said he had stopped to get some badly needed sleep, He was offered a job as county agent in Freestone county with the endorsement of A. & M. Col- lege which he accepted in 1913. After spending some time there he returned to his home county where he was asked to serve as county agent. The minutes of the commis- sioners court specified Roger Davis and "no one else" when the establishment of a county agent was approved. After serving several years as cOunty agent a group of farmers and business men from M~u'io~ county visited FrankLin county and respected hm worX. The re- sult of this trip was an offer from Marion county. This he accepted. Leadership, faith and a whole lot of informa- tion on the subject of agriculture soon made his Work outstanding in the county. In 19~-9 he was named agricul- tural director of the East Texas Chamber of Commerce. He ac- cepted the position with the view of being able to serve more peo- ple and a wider scope of agri- culture. Mr. Davis saw a declining de- mand for cotton and realized ef- forts of East Texas farmers should be directed in other chan- nels. The program he lald down for the East Texas chamber of commerce agricultural activity was: 1--permanent pastures which included the introduction of new pasture grasses and clov- ers; 2---grading, packing and mar- keting schools to aid the East Texas truck grower. Campaigns in these activRies and others were carried on con- stanfly. Farmers were made to realize they could make l~stures carry three head of stock where one head was grazing. The pro- gram is regarded as greatly suc- ces~ul and of lasting influence. While the depression cut out the agricultural department of the East Texas chamber of com- mmerce, it did not end pasture con. tests. Mr. Davis made his final report at the meeting at Texar. kana a few days ago. Thousands of contesters participated dur- ing the four years the contests ran. Mr. Davis came to Nacogdoches county two yeats ago when the East Texu Chamber of Com- merce established its ar,~tural branch I0 cans 3 large cans 6 cans large I0 cans 2 qts. 3 cans ECONOMY A Complete Line of Good Chose your next Shoes from our many fascinating styles fen Street, Sport and Dress wear.
