history in the presence of such a momentous present. Certainly
the history of Texas furnishes abundant examples to inspire
with courage those who read and understand. The "Memoran-
dum to the Historians of Texas" by E. C. Barksdale on pages
258 and 259 is worthy of the attention of every reader of the
Miss Lenora O'Neal began work for the Association more
than three years ago. She became known to most of the mem-
bers and to others who attended the various meetings. As of
January 1, 1942, she has accepted an appointment as County
Home Demonstration Agent in Angelina County with headquar-
ters at Lufkin, a work for which she prepared while a student
in the University. Her excellent service to the Association is
recognized, not only in this office, but by the members through-
out the state.
Ben B. Hunt, 822 Harris Avenue, Austin, has issued a pri-
vately printed pamphlet entitled The Dallas Morning News and
American Defense. The pamphlet pays tribute to the News and
also to the work of the Texas State Historical Association. Mr.
Hunt is an unusual citizen for the reason that he retired from
successful business while it was successful and turned his tal-
ents to the public service. His ideas are embodied in writing
in a series entitled "In Freedom's Name."
On January 17 the Texas State Historical Association will
present to The University of Texas a portrait of Dr. Eugene C.
Barker. The presentation will be held at a dinner at the Driskill
Hotel and will be attended by the officers, fellows, and members
of the Association, and by friends of Dr. Barker. J. Evetts Haley
of Houston will make the presentation address and President
Homer P. Rainey will accept for the University. Dr. Barker,
doubtless with much embarrassment, will have something to say.
The painting, by Robert Joy of Houston, has caught both the
likeness and character of the subject. It is hoped that members
throughout the state can attend; reservations should be made
not later than January 14. Late comers will be provided for,
but their names cannot be placed on the printed list. In making
reservations, send names as they should appear on the program.
Reservations are $1 each.
