Oct. 28, 1976-NEWS.BANNER See 'n' Tell By Lois Williams I was young and full of girlish ideals and I had never been west of the Mississippi and from the moment I met him he started educating me to be a Texan. He told me of the wonders of the west where every thing is bigger and better and said that in some places you can stand on one spot and see three days ahead I believed him because the song "Don't Fence Me In" was at the top of the Hit Parade and didn't it, and every other westerner I ever met say just about the same thing? I listened to his tall tales of the wide open spaces for almost two years and when he told me he was distant cousin of my child- hood hero, Gene Autty, I decided this was too .good to MABANK Meat Packing Plant Sale of Beef and Pork Freezer Packs or by lb.

Two days later we drove hack to El Paso over the same route. We drove for tortured hours at a snails pace through a thick sand storm. Great shadowy shapes came out of the whirling dust and shattered against the car where I cowered in fear. "You aren't afraid of a few ol tumble weeds, are you?" he laughed. "But some of them are as big as the car!" I yelped, "And, by the way, where is that spot where you can see three days ahead--right now we can't even see the car radiator." He insisted that I was going to learn to love Texas. We roamed the world for twenty five years.

TEXAS POWER 8 Li(;HI" COMPANY A mx-pJytnO, mwtor-owned tr bearing oysters were found throughout the United States and produced a va- riety of pearls of various hues including metallic green. Of course men used no discretion in harvesting these pearls. As soon as a find was reported, pearl seekers swept into the area and plundered the beds. leaving nothing behind to replenish the streams. As nature's bounty was de- pleated, a new source had to be found. In ancient times men considered pearls to be gifts of the gods and to interfere with their mysteries was nothing short of sacrilege. In the 14th century a Chinese missionary reported seeing cultured pearls grown by inserting rolled leaves into pearl growing mussels. There are other reports of sporadic attempts to dunli- care natures pearls by ar- tifical methods, but the first important break came about 1904. A young man named Mise was seemingly success- ful in growing cultured round pearls by transplant- ing a bit of the mantle from a pearl gearing oyster into another oyster at the same time a pearl neculus was inserted. Another man named Nishikawa also was success- ful by following the same procedure. Some think their source of information was the same. Nishikawa av- plied for a patent in 1907 but was turned down. Another man. Mikimoto lai claim to the discovery "and was granted a patent in 1916 It is disputed as to whether he learned the secret from one of the two or developed it independently.
