THE MALAKOFF NEWS Page Two Friday, Dec. 11, 1970 Malakoff, Texas P O BOX 509 PHONE 214 489-2451 "HEARTBEAT PROGRESSIVE WESTERN HENDERSON COUNTY" NOW IN THE 59TH YEAR OF PUBLICATION PUBLISHED BY THE TERRITORY TIMES PUBLISHING CO., INC., tN THE NEWS BUILDING IN MALAKOFF, TEXAS 75148, EACH FRILAY, GILBERT BOCELL, PUBLISHER CHARLStE BOCELL, EDITOR ENTERED IN THE POST OFFICE OF MALAKOFF, TEXAS 7148 AS 2ND CLASS MATTER CIRCULATION RATES, 1 YEAR IN HENDERSON AND ADJOINING COUNTIES $450, ALL OTHIIRS IN TEXAS 5 50, OUTSIDE TEXAS $650. Library Group Agin Majority Rule There aint gonna be nary count)" lil)rary $75, 000. bond, and the majority done said it might nigh a month back. Fourteen business and professional people, educators and tax paid leeted officials conven- ed over youder at Athens Monday to rigger out how to defy majority rule, cordin to the Tuesday Athens paper. Some of us never done too much readin, but we heard tell of how Rome fell with less taxation than us here in America are totin right now. Sides if all them books was at our disposal, aint them folks concerned that we might read of how Americans in Ben Franklin's day handled the matter of taxation without representtation.., with that Tea Party up at Boston and all. 15 of us sort of colonies out of this here county's 18 went to the polls last month and said we can't af- ford no library for Athens right now -- when we need some thangs to bring more money into the county to spend fer taxes on stuff we done bought. We done the votin at the proper time without spendin more tax money for paying far special laotians. We gotta be watchin them special called lections, cause that's when the simple majority crams things down the vast majority, 'cause them of us trying to hold the country together ain't got no time to go vote on somethin we done voted on, but them educaters, officials, doctors and big businessmen got plenty enuff to take off time to vote at will, and they will. Thang is, last time around the $75,000 county library bond supporters used our paper and services we bought for the school house to learn our kids to support the proposal. One man, John Holt, said his kids wagged home 3 letters from the Malakoff school house in support of the library before the election last month. Far now, best things looks like for you not to be signnin no petitions calling for a library lection. If that there don't work we might try Ben's "together ve live" thing or a big Tea Party or somthin. Be watching on your blind side or we are likely to get it strapped on us! Bobble Green, Cedar Creek Riding Club reporter from Tool, was on her way to Athens to get her bad ailing pick up truck repaired last Friday. She'd s'mpped in Malakoff and was hoping her truck would hold up the rest of the way. The Traveler was going that way to see the new little granddaughter, Shonda, for the first time. To tag along behind Bi;bbie to make sure she made it to the garage was the plan. At the garage the friendly attendant informed that my state inspection sticker had been expired for three days, and that I needed help even if I didn't know it, For $2 I coudn't risk a ticket on the way back to home camp. It would be awhile before Bobbie's truck would be ready. I asked her if she'd like to bum around with me -- later telling her of my mission (until then she'd been the reporter and Meg and Pieston Green's moth- dr). She helped me keep my feet on the ground, find the house and the next thing I knew was standing in line to hold the baby. She knew about the home routine for new babies, bottles, diapers, and the whole bit. The big kids just loved her -- be- cause in addition to the baby she was also interested in their two dogs. After lunch at the Tiki (her treat), Bobble suggested that I buy this for the baby, and that too. By 3 p.m. I was broke, be- cause of the things she'd sug- gesled for baby and her pickup was ready. She left her shopp- ing in my car and because of Bobble Green I'd enjoyed the first day in forever -- Of just playing it by ear! Maybe it'll hap,)en again when she stops by for her packages. Now that the Traveler has en- couraged everyone to light up for Christmas -- we can't pend- ing repairs from fire damage at home -- things are such a mess it's best to pretend we are gone. At the office Bill At- teberry hadn't deliverel new cabinets as of Tuesday -- and things are unreal there too! How many more days until Santa ?

"b O 0 Dear Gilbert & Charlsie, We seem to have become a "collector" of "editorials" and oher items including "The Traveler" printed in the Mala- koff News. We were so impress- ed with yottr "Down with Ger- tie", in the September 4, 1970 issue that we clipped it and put it on our offfice bulletin board. Then the editorial on "Thanksgiving- To Now" was so good we saved that al- so. Then comes your December 4 issue with the column on the states insurance rates. We cer- tainly had to keep that, and we got a bonus! Turning to page two to continue the article, there was "Shaded, Peaceful Towns -- Don't Knock era". All we can say is Hur- rah! for the Malakoff News.
