tect the many God-given resources and opportunities that lay
ahead. Certainly we have a right to be proud of and thankful
for all of those who, all down the years, have made sacrifices and
contributions to Texas and her marvelous institutions and oppor-
tunities of 1956.
We are all glad to have even a small part in helping to en-
courage the Old Trail Drivers of Texas and the Daughters and
Wives of the Trail Drivers, and particularly the Texas State

we trust you will extend our most cordial greetings to other
Texans and their friends, with the hope and belief that this
caravan will be a pleasure to each of you, and will result in re-
viving the memories and services of our pioneers of the past,
and bring benefits to present and future generations.
Our own "Red River Dave," an accomplished and natural
musician and leader of our city, will lead the festivities from
place to place, and revive the memories, practices, and events of
the old days. He comes from pioneer cattle people, and is known
and appreciated from the "Rio Grande to the Red," and we
