/ Territory Traveler (Continued from Ple One) e questions I didn't ask -- during my ! chance. Those questions I recalled now -- but also too late. FROM THE BRIDGE -- over -- I was back to my concern. How would I get back rny car. News people were walking the Trinidad side -- and I wa Step. A familiar voice greeted me over my right shoulder. It was Powell, Corsieana Sun Publish- (fairly newcomer, and happy to re- a familiar face). Sam Pender- the Sun Editor who puts in 24 a day bulling a reputation as the editor alive, was at his side. aren't natural with Sam, but was impressing his boss -- being They wanted to know if I was to the Corsicans luncheon -- and laid I could not -- that my car was the airport. they were fn'ing ques- what airport? Here? Do you it? Do you have a plane? Did you in ? Not once did- I have a chapce reply. I butted in saying I'd met dignitaries at a landing strip and gotten to the bridge in that big gold Cadillac -- the official car. Sam: "You rode hero with ?,, Me: "yes, but it didn't matter 'cause the Demos were in Athens at the lllackeye Pea FestivalY Sam: "Blackeyed Pea Festival?" Wayne: "Gosh, do we have anyone OVer there ?" Me: "Yep! Dick Gibbs." Wayne: "Yell, how do you know." Me: Read R in the Athens paper. PICKED UP Obviously, I had no choice but to ac- their invitation to the Corslearm luncheon -- especially now that I knew l)welle (Athens Review) was back there listening to how well I was getting along Without him since I fell out with him er his "litter bug" (Cedar Lake ). They were saynig they'd ring me back to get my car after u, h, and Dick Dwelle spoke that up, ed he expecting Gilbert and I that evening at 7:30 in Athens. HIGH ROLLING OVER The Sun Editor drives a green car. Not fine like the "official gold Cadil- lac" -- just a green ear -- that's gon- na run out of gas if Kerens is much further. We made it to a station, but the Sun Publisher and Editor couldn't ! up with one lousy dollar by pool- m.g their resources. I had 47c -- and sharing it. While they were tell- lng sad stories inside the station and getting us all a Dr. Pepper for the road, the attendant was cleaning the wind- Shield. I inquired about a litter bag (to dispose of the Polaroid junk I had stuffed in my camera satchel at the bridge). I don't know why -- I didn't know that man -- but he answered, ,"No, I don't have one, I haven't set up y advertising this year." He was saying that when the Sun guys came back -- and they accused rae of hustling advertising. Wayne Powell said -- '*I'll bet you were not and wouldn't run a Kerens ad in the Malakoff News." That station man said, "I'll bet she' Would if the money was right" -- not helping matters. The status of our combined financial Strength had come to light. One of them asked if I had a luncheon ticket. I did not. Sam told his boss not to panic "-- that he had every confidence that I could frisk my way inside the new high school to eat without a ticket. We were running late and besides the luncheon tickets were by advance Purchase anyway, they thought. NATURAL THIEF As we walked past the "gold official Car" parked at the entry -- (us peons Parked on the parking lot), I was say- ing -- "That's how it was when I was high rolling" --"At the entry, of the beautiful new school was Joe Sheppard of Kerens -- and while introducing my Corsicana Sun friends, I smooth forgot about the ticket business (Joe was tic- ket taker) -- because Charles Haven was just inside and next for introduc- tions to my male companions. During it, I mentioned to Charlie that I'd de- cided to attend after all, and he sug- gested that I ride home with them -- so those fellows wouldn't have to make the extra trip back to Trinidad. THE LUNCHEON The Navarro County Junior College Band was swinging out on some of the finest dance music I've ever heard. I could see many familiar faces -- Dis- trict Engineer Potte" from Tyler and the highway department. Over there was District Judge Jim SeweU. I thought I saw him first (he's blind) but when I went to say hello, he said, "Better watch that guy Sam Pender- grast, you are with Sam, aren't you?" In short order Mr. W. D. Wyatt of Corsieana First National was coming hello. Mr. Wyatt (I call him Hank, name dropping to Wayne and Sam) said he'd told Sam when he came in with me that he was in a good position to learn something about newspapering that wasn't in the books -- if he'd pay close attention to the Malakoff News Editor. I filled my plate, like Sam and Wayne, not thinking about the ticket -- (and I'm sure the guys thought I couldn't forget that soon -- but rather that I was a professional bum). Around these parts, folks know how much I would have enjoyed borrowing $2.50 from my own Malakoff bankers Eddie Garrison or James Curington sitting at a nearby table, to embarrass my party. Hank could have co-signed my note. I. W. (Malakoff's City Councilman) and Georgia Brown were at another table close by and would have paid me out, but I didn't remember to worry'abont it. THE ENTERTAINMENT The First National Bank of Corsicans is celebrating a century of service. A choral group, composed of bank per- sormel called, "The Century Singers" preformed at the luncheon. They (both men and woman) were dressed in red, white and blue costumes, and the ladies' skirts were floor-length. They are great. I almost cried when they did "Shenandoah" -- I think it was the guy with the fine scald on the French Harp (Harmonica) that shook me up. That group sounds equally as profes- sional as the N.J.C: Stage Band. THE SENATOR'S SPEECH I watched Sam -- because I didn't have a scratch pad. He took great de- light in recording remarks (from the head table). It looked like he was writing a prescription -- He was apply- ing so much pressure on his pencil that he was cutting the tablet paper with every stroke -- and I watched that "meanest Editor" react to the Sena- tor's statements. GOING HOME Yes, I was sure I could catch a ride back to Trinidad. I think I'll ride in that "official Gold Cadillac" -- R's much more comfortable than that green ear -- and parked just outside the entrance... I was telling all this to my Corsicana Sun friends -- but I was only teasing. I'd no sooner said it than Bruce Smith (it was his Cadil- lac1 yelled -- "Charisie, do you have a way back? The Senator and I will be leaving in a few minutes." I waved my Corsicans friends good-bye -- from my perch in the front seat of that ,,of. ficial Gold Cadillac," between Bruce and Senator Tower. The Police were escorting us out of town -- again I had my chance and the exclusive in- terview, but it is so much fun knowing something no one else knows -- I'll be like Shorty Reynolds. He'd never part with the photo he got which was always available to him exclusively -- and by sheer accident! ] ii DWIGHT A. JONES, O. D. OPTOMETRIST D0 $. Pakstine, P.O. Box 889 Closed Wed. A qm.
