A program was given by the San Antonio Historical As-
sociation at Cos House on June 30, honoring Colonel M. L.
Crimmins, distinguished Texas historian and genealogist. The
program was conducted by Chris Emmett and Mrs. Lydia
Magruder. The speakers for the occasion were General Beau-
mont B. Buck, Stanley Banks, and Dr. P. I. Nixon.
An advance copy of a Grizzly in the Coral Sea has just been
received from the press of Carl Hertzog. Words and pictures
are by Tom Lea, West Texan and Life magazine correspondent.
Tom Lea's remarkable facility with words --as well as with
pen and paint brush --was previously shown in El Randado.
The present book tells the story of the aircraft carrier Hornet
off Guadalcanal, and is a splendid memorial to that hornet of
the seas. The book is also a Texas item for in addition it is
a memorial to Herbert Jackson of Waco, who was on the Hornet.
Also, Mount Franklin at El Paso is graphically portrayed.
Only two hundred copies are to be sold, so the beautiful book
will not be generally available.
Here’s what’s next.
