B. Clyde McAfee plunged over from the one and also added the optional 2 points, terminating Quitman tallying at 36. It but remained for the Tigers to stage a last effort in protest, and this they did by marching 41 yards to score. This time as- signments were reversed, with Ferrell hitting Lewis from 11 yards ,out for the final T. D. Ferrell s pass to Lewis on the extra point try was incomplete, and the outcome was a 36-12 re- buff by the Bulldogs. The Tigers rolled up 98 yards rushing to 366 for Quitman; com- pleted 9 of 24 passes for 102 yards to 1 of 4 for 29 yards by Quitman; collected 7 first downs to Quitman 15. One of the un- deniable factors of the match was the large number of pen- alties, amounting to a combined total of 19 infractions resulting in 193 yards being assessed Rick Gunnels 8, Tony Ferrell 5, See FOOTBALL.

In a carbon copy letter, re- ceived by theNews Monday from the Washington office of Con- gressman John Dowdy, the City of Malakoff is slated for a new )ostoffice lease building to be constructed in this city. The Post Office Department, Mr. Dowdy said, has announced the approval of a new lease build- ing to be constructed in Malakoff. The matter, he said, has been re- turned to the Dallas Regional Of- fice for development. The new buildin~ Mr. Dowdy advised, w i 1 1 contain approxi- mately 2500 square feet of inter- ior space, 200 square feet plat- form and approximately 8000 square feet for parking and ma- neuvering of vehicles. While the Congressman did not reveal any specific location, the proposed new post office quarters, it is b e i n g rumored around town~ that the proposed plans could very well include Lincoln Hi School Ins New N, H. A. Officers, 1964-65 The N. H. A. Chapter of the Lincoln High School will it~stall new officers for the 1964-65 school term in a special cere- mony Monday morning, Novem- ber 9, 1964.

Go to Church Sunday the modern brick structure, re- cently built by Claudie Mullins on East Highway 31, to house the Gas Light Restaurant. That property, which was closed aftex only a few months operation, has since been purchased by the Carroll & Lehr Funeral Home of Athens. The location selection here. ac- cording to the wishes of the gen- eral public, and the business in- terests, more especially, is not in accord with the town's best business interests, in that it is located too far from the business section of the town proper. Some say that the local office might as well be located as far east as Crescent Heights Community, which is only a few miles away. The final action of the Post Office Department, based on the political influence involved in the plans, is still a matter of con- jecture, but it is hoped by the majority of the town's residents that a suitable location may be found in some area nearer to the business section. Mrs. T. H. Oliver Is Alumnae Speaker At Founders Day Banq el Mrs. T. H. Oliver of Trinidad province alumnae officer for Kappa Delta Sorority, has return- ed to her home after attending a Founders Day Tea in Denton which was given jointly by the Denton Alumnae Association of Kappa Delta and the active chap- ters vf North Texas University. The tea was held at Marquis Hall. While in Denton, Mrs. Oliver was the house guest of Dr. and Mrs. Witt Blair. On Manday evening she was the speaker at the Founders Day Banquet held at the Fort Wortil Club and which was given joint- ly by the Fort Worth Aluncn'~e Association of Kappa Delta ann" the active chapter of Te) as Christian University. In Ft. Worth she was a house guest of Mrs. F. R. Roark who is president of Kappa Delta Asso- j elation of Texas. t Mrs. Oliver's Province is made up of Alumnae Ass;~ciation o I Texas. According to Mr. Finis E. Har- dy, housing project manager, the all new Housing Project of the City of Malakoff, is being rap- idly filled. To date, Mr. Hardy told the News, he has located 13 residents in twelve of the six- teen resident buildings in Terry Street Plaza, which leaves only four vacancies. In this section, however, Mr. Hardy said, there are a number of applicants which thusfar have not been approved. It is expect- ed, he said that the south unit may be completely filled within the next few days. In West Heights, where eight modern new" housing units have been constructed, no tenants have as yet been registered in this ad- dition. Only five eligible appli- cants, Mr. Hardy said, have been registered for the possible eight units.

Lewis, of Malakoff, Texas, has graduated from the training course for U. S. Air Force jet engine mechanics at Sheppard AFB, Texas. Airman Lewis, a graduate of Fannette-Hamshire High School Fannett, Texas, is being ~reas- signed to Kadena AB, Okinawa, for duty in his new specialty. The airman attended Stephen F. Austin College, Nacogdoches, ,i, ! l oun I 0 According To a telegram this week from Congressman J o h n Dowdy, the City of Malakoff has been approved "for a new post office, structure, which in the opinion of this column, is long overdue. While the plans and the footage was explained by Mr. Dowdy, the exact location of the office appeared to be very care- fully avoided. As the News sees it, and upon the basis of earlier observation and the political alignment manifested in the re- cent Democratic elections, this Column is under the impression that the location is to be that of the Gas Light Care building on East Highway 31. That structure, together with the parking facili- ties afforded, might provide ideal post office facilities as far as the postoffice department a n d Mr. Dowdy are concerned, but we here in ' rhe Lignite City," are under the impression that such a removal of the postal fa- cilities from the business are would be a detriment to the business section of our commun- ity as a whole, and we believe that the majority of Malakoff people are definitely against such a recommendation as has been offered by our Congressman, Mr. Dowdy. Paying off a political debt, is one thing, but removing the postoffice from the very heart of a community, to our way of thinking, is quite another. The City of Malakokff, we believe, is entitled to post office quarters The Malakoff voting box in Tuesday's General Election, ac- cording to the town's tradition, voted heavily for all candidates appearing on the Democratic ticket. The total votes, accord- ing to Precinct Chairman Roland Jordan, was 576. Eighty five of that number, however he said, had to be thrown out for the main reason that the voters fail- ed to mark out the names on some of the other opposing tick- ets. President Lyndon B. Johnson gathered 361 ballots here to Re- publicai'. Barry Goldwater's 128. All of the other candidates on the Democratic ticket likewise carried the local box by a large majority. In the Congressional race, John Dowdy, swamped James Orr by the vote of 457 to 76. For Gov- ernor, John Connally lead his Republican opponent, 401 to 75. For State Senator, District 7 Bill Holloway, outstripped Leon Former Malakoli Girl Wins Ceramic Honors At Fort Worth Show Mrs. R. F. Thompson, nee Miss Martha Dee Tidmore, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 1. P. Tidmore of Malakoff, was credited with hav- ing won the highest honors in the Fort Worth Ceramic Show two weeks ago. The show was held in the small exhibits build- ing at Amon Carter Square. Mrs. Thompson's prize-winning piece was a reproduction of the famous painting titled "Madame Bergerret," by Francois Boucher. Painted in oils with a 3-dimen- sion effect created by the doll done in porcelain, the 20 x 24 portrait was acclaimed by judges as a most unusual and accom- plished work of art. Mrs. Thompson, a teacher in Nocona Public School system for the past 11 years, was awarded a tri-colored first place ribbon for her exhibit and she also received a coveted gold oscar, a 12-inch high special award trophy. The painting was later display- ed in the lobby of the Fort Worth National Bank for two days for art lovers in the area to view. i Texas and H'enderson County Junior College, Athens, Texas. m ~m~q within its immediate area, and not on the outskirts of the community. -- IP ~ 8 Our Latest gripe-.-utility-wise, was the unwarranted mutiliza- tion of our favorite maple tree by the so-called tree surgeons by the Texas Power & Light Com- pany. This incident, in which the very top of our tree was cut away in favor of the electric power lines, was accomplished about three weeks ago withoul our consent, or even our know- ledge--which we regard as in- vasion of our private property. We have been so abused in in- stance of this kind in other years, but at those times we were at least advised of the surgeon's in- tent. On one occasion, our tree was given a literal "burr cut" which necessitated years to over- come--now our beautiful tree )resents a perfect "P" directly in its top. The tree is on our own personal property and, according to the laud notes, so is the power line, hence we feel that our con- sideration, however reluctant might have been entertained in advance of the operation.
