That response has been evident during the past four weeks as The News the Malakoff Cemetery Association to help raise $3,000 for new mowing cemetery. When C. O. (Pete)Dodson, association president, first came to The News Association's plight we were sure that the money could be raised. Our confidence has not been shaken, as not only have residents from Malakoff and donated the needed $3,000, but have gone over that amount to ensure proper cemetery. It was a job well done.

Bobby leaves about an hour and a half before me. I could have ridden with him, but it "Good morning," Tommy greeted me. "Do you know what day this is?" I knew there was a reason behind his question. "Let's see," I said slowly, "it's Wed- nesday, July I." Nothing clicked. "Is my inspection sticker out?" I asked him.
