B. F. Harigel, Proprietor
Democratic in Principle and a Worker For La Grange and Fayette County
$2.00 Per Year
La Grange, Fayette County, Texas, Thursday, June 22,1944
Sgt. Weber Continues
(The Journal has received the fol-
lowing account of the award made
to one of LaGrange’s young men, now
in England. It will be read with in-
terest by his many friends.—Editor)
The Distinguished Flying Gross has
been awarded.to Staff Sergeant Law-
rence L. Weber, 23, tail gunner of the
Eighth AAF Flying Fortress, “Lady
Satan” for “extraordinary achieve-
ment” while participating in many
bombing attacks against War-making
targets in Nazi Europe, and for the
“coolness, courage and skill” display-
ed by him “which reflects great credit
upon himself and the Armed Forces
of the United States.”
Sgt. Weber considers himself a Ber-
lin yeteran, for he has been on nine
precision bombing attacks against
targets in the German capital. On one
of the attacks, “Lady Satan” was hit
hard by the heavy flak barrage sent
up by the ack-ack guns, coming home
minus one engine and with 114 gap-
ing holes in the skin of the ship.
“I can’t see how any ship can fly
through that wall of flak,” he com-
mented, “for its hot, bursting hell.
Each shell burst looks like an ace of
clubs and there are thousands of them.
We were pretty lucky for we won
every hand, and had no grand slams
pulled against us. We won that ganie
The LaGrange gunner claims that
the famous Posen and Frankfurt at-
tacks were his roughest. The AAF
formations bombed fighter factories
in those cities but had to fight through
large groups of every type of enemy
aircraft which swooped down on them,
firing 20-mm cannons and fiery rock-
ets. “Lady Satan” fought those bat-
tles for well over three hours each
“I blew up three of those Nazis,”
emphasized Sgt. Weber. “Two Were
Focke Wulfe and one was a Messer-
schmidtt. The. Messerschmidtt pilot
bailed out and his ship crashed with-
out him, but the other two blew up.
I hated them and I was mightly glad
to see them go.”
The gunner, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Albert F. Weber of LaGrange, whose
wife is Mrs. Minnie Mae Weber of
the same city, has already been award-
ed the Air Medal and six Oak Leaf
Clusters to that medal, three of them
for destroying enemy fighters.

HONOR THEIR NIECE
In compliment to their niece, Miss
Marion Kovar, who will be married
next Monday morning, June 26, Mes-
dames Ben Halamicek and E. W. Kurtz
of Fayetteville entertained with a
party and miscellaneous shower, Sun-
day afternoon from 2:00 to 5:00
o’clock at the Halamicek home. Rela-
tives and a few close friends were
the invited guests. The many pretty
and useful gifts were arranged on an
attractively decorated table under a
large pink parasol.
In the dining room, where refresh-
ments were served, the table was
laid with a lace cloth, and a crystal
bowl of pink gladioli, pink tapers in
crystal holders formed the center-
Summer flowers were used for the
decorations throughout the spacious
home. * •
Vlasta Kristhoff and Henrian Eng-
brock were joint hostesses at a crystal
shower, honoring Marion Kovar,
bride-elect of Pfc. J. B. Moore of San
Marcos. Games were played at which
Alice Janda, Millicent Brown, Mrs.
Oscar Rose, Mrs. Breitkreutz and Mrs.
L. W. Eckels! won attractive tea towels
which were presented to the honor
Little Anthony Wilson, represent-
ing Dan Cupid, dressed in a uniform
beating his drum, presented Marion
an air mail letter which had the fol-
“Somewhere in this bivouac area
lies concealed a hangar,
“Aviator Dan Cupid announces that
it is within a few love meters;
“But, he says, he holds complete
superiority in the air;
“As it is well patroled>
“So, dear Marion, don’t fear,
“Just follow me and I’ll lead you
to a hidden treasure.”—Dan Cupid.
Little Anthony lead her to a mini-
ature, camoflaged hangar where many
beautifully wrapped gifts were ar-
ranged around a large drum.
The lawn where this took place was
attractively transformed into an air-
field, where small aeroplanes were
suspended from the colored lights to
carry out the air motif. Pfc. Moore is
a drummer in the Army Air Corps
band stationed at San Marcos.
Refreshments of home-made ice
cream and cake squares was served. *
Guests at the noon luncheon of the
Lions Club, Tuesday, were Rev. W.

“Boys State” at Austin. Both had
Announcing that Lion Pete Looney
would leave for training next month,
the Lions sang navy songs to add
cheer to his going. Rev. Klindewerth
had a brief message about LaGrange
and injected a humorous story.
W. S. Robson, Jr., the son of a Lion
member, and who had been sent to
the “Boys’ State” by the Lions Club,
gave the Lions something to think
about. Youngster that he still is, he
has the knack of observing and under-
standing, with a memory that invites
The youngster gave a very graphic
recital of what the boys—387 of them
—did while attending the Bdys State,
and from what he told, It may be sur-
mised that these youngsters will be
heard from in the future. His telling
of holding sessions, approving ap-
pointments as does a legislative body
and “filibustering that would chal-
lenge seasoned legislators” left the
most agreeable flavor with everyone.
With every member present well
informed about legislative proceed-
ings and matters of State, young Rob
son nevertheless held them in his
grip, first at attention and then at
humor, which latter faculty he seems
to possess to a marked degree.

Empty For First Time
In Fifty Years
More than 50 years ago the present
county jail was built; sheriffs of the
county have not been many since the
new bastile was accepted by the Com-
missioners’ Court, but at all times
there has been some offender to “count
the stars between the bars.”
During the past 60 or more years,
the sheriffs have been only three;
August Loessin, followed by C. A.
Girndt and the present sheriff, Wm.
Now comes the announcement that
the county jail has open doors, for
both reception and inspection. There
is not an offender in the jail at this
writing, Tuesday. Which may be re-
ferred to by all citizens as something
JULIUS DIECKERT DIES
OF HEAT PROSTRATION
Julius Dieckert, born near La-

that have appeared in a previous is-
sue will help to increase the bond
Buying of bonds.is something that
has become a habit with many of our
citizens; one hears of no boast of
how many bonds each individual has
purchased, but inquiry develops the
news that the buying continues.
Committees, locally appointed, have
made the canvass and has admonish-
ed everyone to not lag, and if they
buy from the committee to give the
amount, if not buying from the com-
mittee, to report it to that commit-
tee later, whether they buy at the
postoffice or at either of the banks.

Leased For Furniture
When the City Council, in session
Wednesday night, turned thumbs down
on free rental of the Fair Grounds
(City Park, for you) "because it was
the citizens’ property,” according to
the Mayor, the following was entered
in the miqute book of the council:
“The City Council authorized con-
tract to be drawn between John Berry
A Sons, operating under the name of
Utility Furniture Company, and the
Fair Association, for the use of three
buildings located at the Fair Grounds.
For the use of theee buildings the
Utility Furniture Company Is to be
charged $10 per month.”
This will relieve many who have
talked about the rental of the build-
ings for business purposes. Near to
a half year ago there was some flurry
when another company, manufactur-
ing toys, had made application for
free rental and to all appearances was
to manufacture the toys. The project
did not materialize.
Another favorable decision, and one
that will also bring revenue to Hie
City, was reached when the Council
acted favorably on a petition of the
LaGrange Rebekah Lodge, an auxil-
iary of the I.O.O.F. Lodge of La-
Grange, for use of the J.C. roJfn at
the City Hall. The lodge asked per-
mission to use the room on the first
and third Tuesdays of epch month.
At present the regular meetings of
the lodge are held on the third floor
of the First State Bank building; for
many two flights of stairs has grown
to be a heavy tax on their constitu-
tions, the age of the members being
such as to demand, leu energy tax.
The change Mil be welcomed by the

Mother And Five
James Nevel, colored, and family,
wife and ten children, Fayette county
citizens, residing between Schulen-
burg and Engle, had been celebrating
the Juneteenth and were returning,
as they neared their home, a car driv-
en in the same direction by Lieut. W
Delay of Ellington Field, crashed into
their wagon, wrecking it, killing the
mules hitched to the wagon and scat-
tering the occupants in all directions;
killing mother and five children al
most instantly, and wounding all but
one of the rest of the family.
The car figuring in the accident
was soon thereafter hit by an oil
truck. Lieut. Delay, however, had left
the car when eh saw the truck com-
ing and averted another accident. Sam
Sanders of Austin was the driver of
the oil truck.

highway patrolman, arrived on the

GEMS ^OF THOUGHT
Friends should not be chosen to
flatter. The quality we should prize
is that rectitude which will shrink
from no truth.—Charming
A friend should be one in whose
understanding and virtue we can
equally conflde, and whose opinion
we can value at once for Its justness
and its sincerity.—Robert Hall
There are three friendships whieh
are advantageous: friendship with
the upright, with the sincere, and
with the man of much observation.—
Never contract the horizon of a
worthy outlook by the selfish exac-
tion of all another’s time and
thoughts.—Mary Baker Eddy
Every man will have something to
do for his friend, and something to
bear with in him. Only the sober man
can do the first; and for the latter,
patience is requisite.—Fettham

College Agenta Follow The
During the past week several, who
were representing colleges of Texas
visited LaGrange; as a newspaper of-
fice is frequently the source of infor-
mation, Rambler had his quota. They
wanted to know of the recent grad-
uates and what college the graduates
were contemplating attending.
This is all right, but what of the
newspaper plant? Has the leaven
worked so strong that even the col-
leges are refusing to advertise? It ie
self-explanatory, If ybu care to take
time and study. It is also essential
that a representative of a college visit
the small cities where a list of grad-
uates is obtainable.
But—there is space to sell in a
weekly newspaper; that space is cer-
tain to bring good results when pur-
chased for advertising.

Bicycle Riders Are Many
Youngsters lose sight of the fact
that riding a bicycle on the public
streets of the city carries a danger
that is apt to create painful regrets.
As long as the ridere are careful
(they have to be because some of the
automobile drivers are in a terrible
hurry, frequently) all is well, but
when several are on the streets, they
are apt to become careless.
Rambler gets a kick at seeing the
youngsters, happy as larks in the
early morn, riding about the streets.
He loves them, and because of that
beseeches them to be careful. Smiling
is better than wiping tears of sorrow. •
