Box 509 Malakoff, Texas 75148 O pOt4n~l/O,~ L/'L 6, When our children were toddler through preschool ages I adored them, of course, I thought them terribly sweet and smart and I was occasionally amused by their actions or conver- sations. Basically, though, I remember being extremely tired most of the time from the attempt to keep up with them. I remember being drained a lot of the time from trying to keep ahead of them and from worry about their safety. They are older now. The concerns are t ffferent. Now that ours have passed that "terrible two's" stage that parents never quite forget, I can enjoy the pleasures of the actions of children that belong to others. Our little cousin, Alexandra Wall, is a case in point. Being unbiased, as you can guess I am, I feel free to point out that Alexandra is an extremely smart child for her age. Like most extremely smart children, it takes a lot to keep her occupied, much to the wear and tear of her parents, Peggy and Bruce. We were at a church supper the other evening. Alexandra's parents felt she was running a little wild and situated her at the table with us. There was a group of about ten adults at the table carrying on light conver- sation. AJexandra was sitting quitely in her chair, occupying herseff as children do. "Bruce," her mother said to her father. "She had untied and taken off her shoes and socks." Peggy was a little indignant but I thought it was very cute. I wondered what else would have been gone if her mother had not noticed her nrom'ess. Alexandra loves our Amy."That is natural. Amy is 17, just the right age for a little one to look up to. Fortunately, Amy responds well to children and spends time with them. They went to a volleyball game together the other day. Alexandra was explaining her situation to Amy. "I don't live in Granbury anymore," she said. Alexandra's father has recen- tly transferred from Granbury to Athens where they will make their new home. "Oh, you don't?" Amy responded. "Why not?" "Because those men came and took all our furniture away in a big truck," she explained. Not quite as sharp as fear, I vividly recall an had while a first parents were building five or six blocks Construction on that underway for visited the site daily.

S. Foster, No. 1 wildcat well near here Sunday night, has caused an interesting flurry of royalty trading in this vicinity. Royalty offers during the week has reached as high as $350.00 per acre, while price offers for much of the other land in the vicinity of the drilling com- pany's 100-acre block have been varied according to their locations. Mrs. Marvin M. Bradley, 63, one of Malakoff's best loved citizens, died Saturday morning at Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler. 40 Years Ago Miss Oudia Owen, daughter of Mrs. D. B.
