A 55-foot pine tree from the East Texas forests
is hauled into Burkburnett park in downtown Fort
Worth. A northern spruce was to have graced the
park for yuletide, but a fierce snowstorm in the
mountains of New Mexico prevented.*f Jaycees
from getting home with it. Instead they went to
a forest near Livingston in East Texas and brought
back a southern variety of evergreen.
TWO MEN WATCH
Jaycee Harold Plemons and city park board assis-
tant Johnny Casstevens picked out the big pine
and brought it back to Fort Worth. It's 25 feet
shorter than the Englemann spruce they had in mind,
but the pine is no midget. And this one has
pine cones on it.
LINE1E AT WORK
Linemen are on the job minutes after the tree is-
'in place to wire it for lights. It's expected'to
bel all lit up by Saturday night.
Here’s what’s next.
