Other than the loss of dirt from rains, the original bud- get did not include the cost of ~eying brought about by the moving or lowering (for some unknown reason) of the original stakes marking the field contour. Also mound- ing dirt around the field was added to supply adequate drainage. Bleachers are under con- struefion at this time and the sprinklers are being used at night in an effort to get a good sod by the opening of the football season. Acting on the written resign- ation of high school Principal :,Noel Jackson which was sub- mired by him to individual hoard menhers, the trustees voted to accept his resignation and also that of his wife who taught in the elementary school.

They were, Mrs. Phillip Hatton, junior high; Ross Stroble, elementary; Mary Wade, elementary; Pauline B len, elementary and Troy Rhodes at the high school. Tho position that Miss Cook will fill was not indicated. Attending the Monday night meeting were Bradshaw, Mrs. L. O.

The meeting replaced the regular scheduled one of June 9, which was post- poned because the superin- tendent was out of town at that :time. essary to the community, and which now cause a tremendous drain on the city's budget. The sales and use tax was recently adopted by the neigh- bering town of Malakoff and has been in use for some time in other surrounding commu- nities. Unlike other taxes, on- ly local residents would bene- fit from the sales and use tax as all revenue remains within the city. It is expected that much of the money would be provided by transient traffic.

Mr. Carter. told the News Wednesday morning that the accident occurred at the fami- ly home around 5 p.m. while he was mowing the lawn. He said that he asked Sandra to move some lawn chairs out of the way, and she was in the act of obeying when the mow- er ran over a half inch water line connection. The mower picked up the connection and threw it, hitting his daughter on the right leg. The connection knocked a hole about the size of a half dollar in the limb, and travel- ed on to break and shatter the bone between the knee and thigh. Mr. Carter first carried his daughter to Haynes Hospital and then transferred her to Tyler. There, the doctors put her in traction and were to ob- serve the wound for three days. Then if no infection bad set in, they were to operate and insert a pin. Sandra is presently in room 3H5 and would appreciate cards from her friends. most picturesque view is found at the rear of the split level, brick home. Here the lawn continues it's slope until it reaches the water's edge where Mrs. Graham admits she sits in the cool shade of a tree and fishes and "catches" crappie by the dozens." While she is enjoying her favorite sport, Mrs. Graham is surrounded by dozens of rose bushes in full bloom and other flowering plants and vines giving off their sweet aroma. Should she and her husband simply desire to loll in the fresh air and observe the beauty of nature, large, colorful, beach umbrellas, comfortable chairs and handy tables, are found placed at ad- vantageons points on an enor- mous concreted patio leading out from the lower deck of the home. A wide gallery, as large at some points as is alioted to the living area of a home, runs from the upper level of the west end of the house, all the way around the back and across to the eastern most reaches of the structure. All fiirnishing on the gallery are placed and suited to the com- fort of guests and the area gives a lift to the spirits with the many dashes of color found in various decorations. Once visitors have sated their appetite for the beauty of out- doors, they are admitted into the spacious home by means of double doors of Spanish de- sign which sets the mood for interior decorations. The doors open into a large foyer done in green and white embossed wallpaper with a dark Spanish commode topped with a gold leaf Spanish mir- ror found on the right wail. A half brick and woodwork separation wall on the north- east corner, lends an air of privacy to the entrance. The floor of the lobby is laid in black and tepra-eotta tile of authenie Spanish design which extends into the enor- mous living-dining area. Here Mrs. Graham used the Spanish decor to the best advantage. The walls are of stained pecan paneling with matching beams running the length of the white ceiling. All, such as the massive low table, divan, versation piece in the north- east corner of the room, is a black wrought iron spiral staircase on which dresden soldiers, dressed in the Kings guard are standing guardion on each stair. Priceless an. tiques are found throughout the home. To the west of the living area a heavy, octagon shaped table with Monk chairs, dominate the center of the dining alcove. Hovering low over the table is a beautiful hand wrought glass and lead lamp made by an old Catholic Mission in San Anton- io. The completely built-in kit- chen, done in pumpkin and avocado is walled off from the rest of the rooms and serving is done by means of a waist hieh opening in the wall fac- ing the dining room. A door, opens out of the west side of the kitchen into a hall- way that leads it to the maids vrivate domain. Her bedroom, located at the north of the hall, is done in cheery colors of pinks, blues and greens with wails of near white. Matching colors are found in the bathroom centering the hall. and white embossed wall pa- per and is complemented with a black marble top dressing Pol Traffic Outside of traffic viola- tions, Malakoff Chief of Po- lice LeRoy Rogers reported a very quiet week with no wrecks being worked and no disturbance calls. Eleven traffic tickets were issued with 90 percent of viola- Lions occurring at the red light, Rogers said. "I am try- ing to alert people to the dan- ger of not coming to a com- plete stop at the light," he de- clared. "Traffic is always heavy at the intersection and unless all safety rules are ob- served, danger of a wreck and the possible loss of lives is ever present." Only two other tickets were issued during the week, one person was charged with be- ing drunk and one for driving without a Ueem . located on the northeast ex- FrL June 27tb The terraced and lovely groult~l Of the Peno Graham at Harbor, draw to the Preparations are now being made for the annual Mankin Picnic and Homecoming slat- ed for Friday, June 27. The event will be held on the Man- kin Church grounds located east of Highway 274, north of Trinidad. The picnic is the only means used by the community to re. eeive revenue for upkeep of the cemetery and local resi- dents are hopeful of a big turnout. Plenty of entertainment has been planned for the day and evening activities along with a variety of delicious home cooked dishes to be served at the dinner hour. Cold drinks and snacks will be on sale throughout the day. Tickets may now be pur- chased at the First State Bank in Trinidad and at Dulaney's Auto Store in Malakoff.
