A CLEVER WOMAN
From Mrs. Lula Evers Tripp:
At last I am getting around to mail-
ing our check for “THIS WEEK.’
As we have told you many times, we
surely enjoy this little magazine—not
only its news items, and interesting
‘a la Headlee’ comments, but particu-
larly the grand ole spirit pervading it
Thanks for everything,
Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur D. Buttrill are
new sponsors. He used to read Bill
Coleman’s copy of The Doings when
they were overseas. Wilbur is a nephew
of the late Mr. W. J. B. Buttrill. The
Buttrill family roots go deep into Den-
ton County soil.
IK BETTER HOMES
THIS WEEK is read in nine
out of ten of the better homes in
Denton. It’s because of its local
interest news about Denton peo-
Katherine Daniels is Field Represent-
ative for the American Cancer Society.
Her home is at 3530 Asbury St., Dal-
las. She is a remarkable woman. She
was educated at the Methodist Home
and at Baylor, did radio work for
KRW, Sherman, four years. Then she
was with the Campfire Girls for four
years, and returned to The Home to

PETER MARSHALL'S PRAYERS
Our thanks to Congressman Frank
Ikard for a copy of the book of prayers
offered by Peter Marshall in the U. S.
Senate while he was Chaplain from
1947 to 1949.
Peter Marshall was the greatest
preacher and the greatest source of in-
spiritation to millions during his few
short years of his ministry in that great
Presbyterian Church in Washington—
the greatest of his generation, we think.
MIGHT HAPPEN TO US
We stopped to see our friend Hen-
richs, publisher of the Sunshine Maga-
zine, at Litchfield, 111.
He was amused at a letter he had
received that morning. A friend had
subscribed for the magazine for a Mrs.
Smith, who after reading the first issue,
wrote him to discontinue it as it con-
tained, “Too much sunshine.”
Mrs. Smith needs to see a doctor.
GLORIA DAWSON JOHNSON
Gloria Johnson was here for the fu-
neral of her father, Mr. W. A. Dawson,
one of Denton’s finest men. Gloria and
her husband, Joseph Norr Johnson, live
in Newark, N. J. He is with Montgom-
ery Ward & Co., in charge of issuing
Their son, Joseph Norr Johnson, II,
is six years old.
Here’s what’s next.
