REDISTRICTING Fourth in a series of public hearings held by the Legislative Council Study Committee on Con- gressional Redistricting will be held in San Antonio. Legislators seek public opinion on the way to draft redistricting to conform with the U. S. Supreme Court edict. It's a matter which must be settled during the 1965 session. Speaker of the House Byron Tunnell says he believes redist- ricting -- both congressional and legislative -- should be handled at the end of the session, after higher education purposals and tax matters are out of the way. His idea conflicts with those of Governor Connally and A t ty. Gem Waggoner Carr who have said redistricting should be the first item on the Legislature's agenda.

Post Oak Cemetery Picnic To Be Held Saturday, August 1 Martin Bryant, treasurer of the Post Oak Cemetery Association called at the News office earlier this week requesting a reminder r notice that the annual homecom- ling and picnic at the cemetery grounds, will be held in the Post Oak Community tomorrow-- Saturday, August Ist. An urgent appeal for the cem- etery support, Mr. Bryant said, is being made at this time as the expenditure i s exceeding t h e amount of the donations. Unless the cemetery gifts are increased, Mr. Bryant and his committee are fearful that the condition of the burial ground may resort to its former pitiful condition that it was in before the present pro- gram was started a few years ago. The cemetery committee, Mr. Bryant said, feels that keeping the cemetery in a presentable condition is the responsibility of everyone who has loved o n e s buried there. Friends of the Post Oak Com- munity are urged to attend this homecoming and to bring a bas- ket lunch and enjoy the day with old friends. Those who cannot attend, are asked to mail their ~cemetery gifts to the Post Oak Cemetery Fund, in care of Mar- tin Bryant, Box 703, Malakoff, Texas. to 15-year-olds. J. D.

The Eustace lad, Mr. Waller said, will go to Dallas Saturday evening to attend a banquet, which is being tendered to all en- trants in the 1964 Soapbox Derby Races. To Display Car Here The "homemade" auto, built by young Monroe, will be on display at the Royall & Waller Chevrolet Company here today, and on Saturday and Monday for public viewing. Young Mr. Monroe will spend Saturday morning at the local Chevrolet plant and he will be glad, Mr. Waller said, to discuss the construction of "soapbox" cars with all local youths who might be interested in that particular pasttime. Newcomers To The City Of Malakoff [ The News takes t h is oppor- ] tunity to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Arthur C. Ball and their 18- months old son as new residents of the City of Malakoff.

The location of the proposed celebration-day program, how- ever, has not been announced as yet. The favored situations, the News has learned, are those of the downtown area and the rodeo grounds of the Malakoff Lions Club, which is located a few miles south on the Cross Roads highway and on the Joe Faulk farm. The a n n u a 1 "Homecoming" event, which has been held each year for the benefit of the per- petual upkeep of the Malakoff Cemetery, is regarded as one of the entertainment highlights of the year at which time old friends and neighbors of yesteryear, are priviledged to meet again and to renew old acquaintances. The events during the past few years have met with the hearty approv- al of the old-timers here, and :those many former Malakoffians who cherish a kindly remem- brance that Malakoff was once their "home town." In two recent meetings of in- terested townsmen in the forth- coming 1964 reunion celebration, Robbers Net Small Haul In Sun. Nite Inciden* At McKee's The would-be robbers attempt- ing a haul at the W. R. McKee Lumber Company here Sunday night were turned away disap- 9ointed with only a small- change take of approximately told the News that, as far as the management could ascertain, only that amount of small cash was taken from the cash register. No other merchandise, according to Manager Alfred Williams, w a s found missing after mid-morning Monday. Investigating officers were un- der the impression that the rob- bers, including at least two or possibly more, had been on the premises for some time prior to the robbery attempt. Indications were that at least one was housed in the company warehouse at the rear of the structure for some time and that evidence pointed to his having walked around in cir- cles. Another member of the robber team, according to avail- able footprints, officers said, made a run toward the east fence of the yard and hid for some time in the tall grass beyond. His foot- prints were found deeply imbeded in an oil-soaked piece of ground, formerly used by the Royall- Waller Chevrolet Company. Alfred Williams, manager of the lumber firm, told officers that he and one of the firm's other employees, had been at the yard i just about dusk Sunday evening and that there were no signs of robbery at that time. The robbers, is was learned, gained entrance to the office quarters after climbing the wire fence on the north side, and forc- ed open a door leading into the office and sales room. The office safe, which bears a printed sign of being u.nlocked, it was learned, was unmolested. Only the small amount of change, contained in the office cash reg- ister, was taken.
