A retired banker decided to
operate a filling station. His
first customer, a farmer he’d
known and loaned money to for
years, said, “Fill ’er up!’’
“How far you agoin’?” the
“Over to Crosbyton and back
—about 70 miles.”
“I think you can make it on
4 gallons or a little more,” the
banker replied crisply, “but I’ll
let you have an even 5.”
GRADY LACKNEY in
The Texas Spur:
While devoting thought to
national problems, I have, with
pardonable pride, arrived at the
solution of a delicate expensive
and confused condition. Many
men, with greater talents than
mine must’ have thought about
women’s hats, but instead of
attempting to bring order out
of the seasonal chaos, they have
returned to the more peaceful
ward of masculine thinking.
I suggest that women’s hats
be nationalized in style, ma-
terial and color, something like
hats worn by branches of the
military. Every woman would
have exactly the same style and
color hat as her neighbor. A
government price support ar-
rangement would compel each
shop to sell for the same amount
of money. All the strife, bitter-
ness and .uncomfortable mom-
Fixed regulations would de-
termine when hats aje to be
worn and when they are to be
left at home and the saving
should pay the interest on the
national debt. Where is my
hat? I must be going—Trail
Dust in Matador Tribune.
Last week I used the term
droodles—and a reader promptly
called my attention to the fact
that “droodles” is not in the
dictionary and I should have
used the word “doodles.” Got
me to thinking about a defini-
tion for a droodles. A doodle
is an aimless scribble; A drooble
is scribbling with a meaning.
So — a droodle must be a
doodle with a purpose!

We read an article today,
“Help Your Husband Stay Alive,”
by Hannah Lees of Philadelphia.
She states there are 7,000,000
widows in the country. Seven-
teen men die in the 40’s for
every 10 women. Eighteen men
die in their 50’s for every 10
Miss Lees says American
women, who would prefer to
have their husbands to the mink
stole his overwork earns, can
do more than a whole battery
of psychiatrists to save their
She offers these suggestions:
Help him relax; make him hap-
py to be a good father and
husband — if he needs more
sleep, reduce his social engage-
ments; if he is overweight, plan
attractive low calorie meals; en-
courage walking, swimming,
gardening, golf in moderation,
and other forms of light ex-
ercise, and please, please, don’t
expect a tired husband to shovel
snow or do anything that makes
him more tired. These are only
a few of the many ways a
man’s wife can contribute to his
happiness and well being.
Now, what about the woman
who works from 8 to 10 hours
per day, goes home and pre-
pares the evening meal for hus-
band and children; do a week’s
washing or ironing, clean house,
and a dozen other things in
order that she may be back at
her work eight o’clock the next
She has no time for golfing,
movies, a game of bridge, or
any relaxation, but still she
outlives her husband, so maybe
long hours and hard work is
better for a woman than a man.

The Graham Leader.
May I take this opportunity
to advise you a little about the
activities in the Legislature. By
the time this letter is printed,
the House of Representatives
will probably have passed the
largest biennium bill in the
history of Texas: it is our Ap-
propriation Bill and it has more
than two billion dollars ($2,000,-
000,000) in it. This is an in-
crease of some two hundred
million ($200,000,000) over the
biennium two years ago. Every
department and agency of Gov-
ernment has been increased pro-
portionally. This means that
there will be about twenty-five
million dollars ($25,000,000) left
for us to give Teacher pay
raises and appropriation indivi-
dual appropriation bills. Even
though this appropriation may
not meet with the entire ap-
proval of everyone, generally
this specific bill certainly should
go a long way to comply with
all requests since everyone gets
a raise. We can do this and
still give a reasonable Teacher
I am of the opinion we will
not have to pass a new TAX
bill. I believe the people of
Texas will be happy to see a
Legislature come and go with-
out the need of a TAX measure.
We, who are living principally
off of agriculture income and
have been in the middle of the
worst drought in this country,
are certainly not in a position
to pay more TAXES. It has
been gratifying to learn

model—leave no doubt about the smoothness
Big-car pleasure is a standard feature
with Oldsmobile . . . even on the lowest-
priced Rocket. For proof, take a good look at
the fine details of the Golden Rocket 88.
We’re talking about the extra features that
add so much to the value of your car, yet
don’t add to the price of your Olds.
For example, you don’t pay extra for the
big-car performance of Oldsmobile’s Rocket
Engine.* The pace-setting action of its high-
compression power gives you more economy
when you want it, power when you need it.
You don’t pay extra for the snug comfort of
Oldsmobile’s big-car ride. New Wide-Stance
Chassis, Pivot-Poise Front Suspension and the
wider, more durable frame—standard on every
and safety of Oldsmobile’s new wide ride.
You don’t pay extra for Oldsmobile’s big-
ear styling. The higher, wider Span-A-Ramic
Windshield, the distinctive, colorful Accent
Stripe, and the comfort and luxury of new
Tech-Style Interiors are standard features on
every new 1957 Oldsmobile.
Compare Oldsmohile’s extra-value features
with any car at any price. You’ll soon find out
that you get more when you go Golden
Rocket 88. And this Rocket fits your pocket.
Be our guest „ . . take a Rocket Test, soon.
*277-h.p. Rocket 7-400 Engine standard on all models.
J-2 Rocket Engine, with 300 h.p., and special Rocket
Engine, with up to 312 h.p., optional at extra cost.
Be our guest for a J-2 test! Oldsmobiie's sen-
sational new engineering advance presents two-
stage engine control through progressive car-
buretion. STAGE ONE: for smoother operation
and better economy. STAGE TWO: for a quick
surge of power when the situation demands.
