PASSED AND AP- PROVED on this the 11 day of November A.D., 1975. ATTEST: Cathy Pretorius Secretary Roy W. Shipp Mayor, City of Star Harbor, Texas 'In God We Trust' Set At First Baptist In a day when national heroes have become suspect and many American tradi- tions discarded as threadbare, the Ken Anderson Films organization suggests another option in a feature motion picture entitled "In God We Trust", which will be shown at the First Baptist Church of Malakoff at 7 p.m., Wednes- day, Nov. 26. Through the experiences of a conservative senator badly beaten at the polls by his liberal opponent, "In God We Trust" re-examines America's early beginnings. "Christ- ianity-and patriotism aren't necessarily synonymous," the ex-senator says, "but they certainly can be compatible!" There was a day. the senator discovers, when the Supreme Court upheld a motion declaring this country to be a Christian nation. Across the pages of history, he further verifies, singular evidences of divine interven- tion attended the spawning and developing years of the new nation. Together with his two grandsons, the defeated politician takes a close look at American memorabilia. They visit the traditional shrines of our nation's early history, examining documents which attest to Biblical faith in the lives of multitudes of the founding fathers. As they travel, the group picks up a hitch-hiker. Highly dubious of the senator's opinions, he provides a sprightly catalyst for the patriotic pilgrimage. Walter Louis Jackson is in charge of the program. Barbara Robertson Thomas Weds Billy Lee Gunnells Mr. and Mrs. Rollen C. Robertson of Combine, Tex.. announce the marriage of their daughter, Barbara Robertson Thomas to Billy Lee Gunnels of Trinidad.

When a new family moves to town, they understandably want telephone service right away. And, in most cases, we're able to provide that service because we've anticipated their arrival by build- ing facilities sufficient for growth in the community. However, sometimes we're not able to provide the type of service you'd like as soon as we'd like. When this does hap- pen, we appreciate your understanding and your patience. Our goal is to give every subscriber the service he wants just as soon as it's practical. In some areas, such as those surrounding new housing or business developments, we may have to m.ake a major invest- ment for facilities in order to provide even basic service. Naturally, it's neces- sary for us to borrow funds for these facilities, as for any major construction project; and the interest rates we are now paying are the highest in the com- pany's history. All of this requires considerable investment in terms of money, equip- ment and personnel. But we think it's necessary to give our customers adequate service and to encourage the growth of your community. llll00Gulf States- United Telephone UNITED TELEPHONE SYSTEM
