■' The • littU' 'red- poppies 4a'be
■old by the Rocksprings , Legion
Auxiliary Unit are made of red
crepe paper, by hand, by disabled
veterans in hospitals or in poppy
workshops in 40 states. The work-
ers receive pay for each poppy
made, the material being furniahed
free by the State Department
where the hospitals or workshops
are located. Only as many poppies
can be made as are ordered by
the Legion Auxiliary Units and
the number they order is based
on the response of the sales in
their local communities. These or-
ders for poppies mean work for
eager hands an<f the revivifying ex-
perience of again earning money
by men who have been in long-
enforced Idleness. These veteran
patients beg to be able to make
more and more poppies. Besides
the earning power the poppy mak-
ing program has other beneficial
effects. The hours of the veterans
in the hospital are long and monot-
onous. In idleness their minds are
prone to dwell on the hardships
of their families or on their own
disabilities. Mental depression
hampers physical recovery. But
men whose fingers are busy shap-
ing the bright red poppy petals
do not give themselves up to de-
pressing worry. Their hours are
made shorter. The occupational
therapy departments in the veter-
an hospitals recognize the poppy
work as having high therapeutic
Did you ever really look at the
little red poppy you wore on
POPPY DAY? Next time you
wear the little little red poppy look
at it and you will realize it takes
time to fashion a perfect poppy.
Though the workers fashion a per-
fect flower the flowers are not
alike, they are as individual as the
workers who make them. These
poppies come to the Legion Aux-
iliary in poppy clusters, each the
work of only one worker. It i-
only those receiving and readying
them for sale that are aware of
the individualism of these little

BAYLOR-TEXAS TECH GAME
TO BE TELECAST, FOUR
GAMES TO BE BROADCAST
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18
Several trucks loaded with cattle
have passed through Rocksprings
recently bringing cattle from East
Texas to the higher and drier cli-
mate of West Texas. It’s been
many a moon since Edwards
County could be called cattle
country, but the country in the
Kickapoo section, with its high
grass looks luscious to the cattle
family. Proper brush control and
good rains are bringing the good
old days of the old trail drivers
back to this country, when a sheep
or a goat was a rare animal.
Mr. and Mrs. Boh King are va-
cationing in East Texas and South
Texas. Roy Hart of Uvalde and C.
E. Watson are taking care of the
CPL office while they are away.
Fun to do! Easy for you! Have an
