SEEKS IMPORT CURB A law to back up the State Highway Commission O r d e r (voided by the courts) to curb use of steel imports on state pro- jects has been proposed by a leg- islative committee. Supreme Court has held that the 1960 "Buy America" order infringes on state law requiring eompetive bidding. OGALLALA HEARINGS Major oil and gas industry spokesmen told the Texas Water Pollution Control Board they are going all out to protect fresh water supplies of the Ogallala formation. The formation cov- ers 48 West Texas Panhandle counties and e x t en ds 311500 square miles. James L. Sewell, president of Texas Mid Continent Oil & Gas Association said: "It is our desire to form an alliance with groups in the industry or outside . . . who wish to protect the water of this state." He predicted a flex- ible program can solve the prob- lems without jeopardizing ex- tensive oil and gas operations. Last September the board's geologist recommended elimina- tion of unlined surface pits used for disposal of oil field brines in the Ogallala area. Seepage of brine was contaminating under- ground water. TEXAS TAXES ' HIGH People who think they are pay- ing high state property and sales t, axes will be interested to know ~they are! A stuCdy of state fi- i nancing by the Legislative Bud- get Board reveals that the state tax burden in Texas is heavier than the national average. A ten year view of tax bur- dens -- the term statisticians use to describe state taxes as a per- centage of total personal income ---shows Texans' "tax burden" has risen above the average for the first time. Texans contributed only 3.7 per cent of their total income to T P & i Aroun e own President John F. Kennedy Assassinated THOUGH The tragic and unexplained incident in- volving the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, presi- dent of the United States, which occured more than a week ago, and which news was received in all parts of the entire world within minutes after its occurance in Dallas Friday morning, November 22, 1963, the News must record this historical event for posterity's sake for those who might chance to read these columns in the years to come. The weekly newspapers in this land in this advanced day of news broadcast throughout the world, were afford- ed no chance, whatever, in breaking the news of this na- tional catastrophe to even its own segment of population. Television, radio, and leased wires to daily newspapers Texas, though the fatal shot, which resulted in the un- timely death of President Kennedy; one of the smartest heads our government has ever had, was believed to have been fired by an anti-American, a pro-communist, and one who, at one time, declared allegiance to Russia and a desire to renounce his American citizenship. As America bowed her head on the funeral day, to honor the memory and the accompl::s hments of Mr. John F. Kennedy, so did the City of Malakoff--as our com- munity was deeply moved by the passing of this great and learned man at thehands of an assassin's bullet. The tragedy would have been the same whereever it might have oecured but we, here in the Lone Star State, are doubly regretful that the assassin chose our beloved State of Texas for his dastardly crime. It is our hope that the other peoples of these United States, and those through- out the world will not accuse us too severely, but that they may come to realize that sooner or later, the self- appointed murderer might have carried out purported crime in any section of this vast land of ours. Texas treated the nation's royalty very royally on this occa s,ion and of that fact we Texans are very proud. It is, however, to our wounded pride and everlasting embarrassment, that such a crime, which so vitally affected the nation and the world at large, should have had to occur within our peaceful borders. By Mrs. Martha Williams (Cross Roads) "Do not ask what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." It seems that we have failed somewhere, to have caused the author of these w o rds to be stilled in death. The late President John F. Kennedy was active and friendly. i know this only through the press and television, but I feel that during these few years in office, his true self showed through as the kind of person one would like to know. Why this should have happen- ed, is an answer God, only, can answer. We have to resign our- selves to think that good will come from this horrible waste of life. We will mourn this hour for our country, and those loved ones who are left behind. The only thing we can do is: Awake, America, awake! and lift your eyes today. Awake your hearts to the truth.! Open House To Honor Trin;dad Couple On Golden Anniversary "Open House," in honor of the Golden Anniversary of Mr. apd Mrs. R. H. Lanier of Trinidad, will be held Sunday afternoon in the educational building of the Methodist Church in that city. Visiting hours will be from 2:00 until 5:00 o'clock. The occasion is being present- ed the couple by their daughter, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Green and children. Mrs. Green is the only child. Friends of Mr. and Mrs. Lanier are very cordially invited to attend this occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Lanier have been residents of Trinidad since his retirement from the farming in- dustry four years ago.

Farm Bureau Office Lists Hay Dealers ATHENS -- The Henderson !County Farm Bureau is serving as an information center for put- ting farmers who have hay for sale in touch with farmers who need hay, Jack Walker, president of the bureau, announced today. He said a list of tho~e who have hay for sale and the price asked is available at the bureau's office in Athens. He said anyone who wishes to sell hay may list it without charge. The Farm Bureau will send the information to all Farm Bureau offices in the state, and ~nyone wishing to purchase hay may call at the Farm Bureau and see the list whether or not he a member of the bureau. "The bureau will continue to make the list available as a pub- .ic service .as long as the emer- gency lasts," Walker said.

Overdue Homage Since Thanksgiving Day this year will mark the 100th year that it has been observed as a national holiday it is fitting that special homage should be paid to the woman whose relentless cru- sade established it as an offical and uniform day of celebration. For 17 years, Sarah Hale, editor of "Godey's Lady's Book" cam- paigned to unify the states in common observance of a day of thanks. Despite national c o n- tempt in the 19th century for feminine meddling in public af- fairs, not once did the tiny, but fiery corageous woman abandon her crusade. From 1846 to 1863 she pleaded with three presidents (Fillmore, Pierce, and Buchanan) and wrote countless editorials in her maga- zine for her cause. By 1849 several states were cel- ebrating Thanksgiving separate- ly; no two states observed the holiday on the same day. Three years later, in 1852, Mrs. Hale had succeeded in having 29 states join observing Thanksgiving on the last Thursday in November as a unified day of thanks. In 1863 her appeal to a great American crowned her crusade in victory. Through a proclama- tion by President Abraham Lin- Coln, the last Thursday in No- vember was established as a day of national thanksgiving. Clendon, Powell; W. D. Wyatt, Corsieana; C. M.

Warren, mayor of the Town of Trinidad. The new plant will be in serv- ice by the summer of 1965. It will be constructed adjacent to a TP&L generating station now lo- cated near the new site. The new facility will be of modern out- door design. The first electric generating unit at Trinidad was put into operation in 1926. A swamp on the Trinity River was cleared to provide the site for the unit. The plant was enlarged in 1932, and other generating units were subsequently added through 1949. The new Trinidad unit will be the first of two new generating stations to be put into service by the company in a two - year period. In 1966 TP&L will com- plete a 500,000 kilowatt gene- rating station at Stryker Creek, northwest of Nacogdoches. Only 1 Deer Check Station To Remain Open After Dec. 1 TYLER -- Parks & Wildl~e Department Personnel manning the three deer check stations in Freestone County advised that two of the stations will no long- er be needed after December 1. It is manadtory to check deer killed, in the county at one of the three stations, allowing bi- ologists to record necessary data on the harvest during the ex- perimental early open season, but one station, it is felt, will take care of the traffic after the week- end heavy hunting pressure end- ing on sunday night, the first of December. The two stations that will close on the above date will be the ones presently located 15 miles north of Fairfield on farm ,road 488, and the Dew station located 10 miles south of Fair- field. This will leave the sta- tion in Fairfield, located on the square, open for the duration of *~he season. Fairway Test Drills Ahead Near Poyner The operator is drilling ahead at the H. L.
