Two members of the official family of the Association were
present at the initial meeting, the Director and Mrs. J. Bruce
Duncan of Waco, a member of the Executive Council. Both Mrs.
Duncan and I are natives of Coryell County and it was a genuine

FROM TEXAS, any how, and don't ask any money for it.-A. KAYSER.
