Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Clockwise above, Evetts Haley lends the authen-
tic Texas touch to the occasion wlife Herbert
Gambrell and Roy Bedichek, fresh from their
luncheon confessions on "How-I-Wrte-a-Book,"
survey the standing-room-only crowd Lou Kemp
peers under his spectacles at the itenr offered op-
posite. Bookseller Heartmann is one among the
many "in the trade" that keeps a pro essional eye
on the prices reached. On the facing page in the
same order, auctioneer Timmons pushes sales
against the five-fifteen deadline vhile Bailey
Carroll pulls on his stogie. Dr. Nixon stimulates
the bidding on neglected items as Carl Hertzog
suffers through a new design problenr as his old
products sell at a premium. Harber Davenport
stays on following his pre-auction t;,lk to enjoy
the sport.
