W« fort®* from one winter to the next ju t
how cold it wu ... or how bad the mow, ice
and tleet were la«t year.
However, thi* January hat been bad . . . even
thowgfc we haven't had any lero weather yet.
Cattle are suffering thi* week from the con-
tinued cold. Rancher* are differing, too,
trying to feed and break ice for their cattle.
The moisture it fine, but Weit Texai could
use a little more rain and lets ice, sleet and
There hat been ice, tleet and tnow every
Monday thit month, which hat continued
through most of the week.
"Wi.idom of the humble: 'When you
ain't ffot no education, you jest GOT to
use yo' brains'."
THIS WOUI-D UK A GOOD TIMK to express our
appreciations to our utilities jieople for tln'ir fine
services during the heavy ici weather. The We t
Texas Utilities crewmen, and the Southwe tern Pell
Telephone Co. hoys have had their hand full, but
wc haven't been without the r utilities for very hin^
;it a time. Those hoy, have worked in all kind.- of
weather, day and night, to keep the ervice com m:
through. „ —
fas pressure throughout all the cold \ve.iihi i
the city water department lirr had it trouble
breaks and servicing problem.■.
We don't know how to appreciate the. e fine mod-
ern conveniences until we have to do w thout them
for a few hours.
"Wouldn't it he nice f it took a. lonj?

ROAD TRAVEL has been hazardous during
the icy weather . . . but our wholesale grocery
trucks, the buses and freight lines keep going
These services should be appreciated, too, dur
ing tWis type of weather.
Even our rag man, who furnishes ragi tor
cleaning purposes, has made Albany each
day morning from Fort Worth
Tuesday that he had had about
of weather be wanted.

D. 1(. ASKEW, a new laywer in Albany and a
brand new reader this week, for -otnc reason sends
us the follow in.r clipping from his home town paper,
of Normaiigee. Guess he wanted to be sure we
had something to put in the paper this week:
"Contrary to popular belief this column does-
n't make errors on purpose. It makes them he-
cause the editor doesn't see them on the proof
and is amazingly ignorant about many things.
For instance, galvanized roofing. In last
week's issue, The Star advertised '59-gauge
galvanized roofing' for II. K. Shaw. He just
put a *5' where they should have been a '2.' In
reality, the editor had no idea that 5!t-gauge
steel would be as thin a paper and that there
is no such thing as 59-gauge roofing. Hut
everybody in fs'ormangee, Flynn and on the
routes knew it. All of which proves that the
reader is a heck of a lot smarter than the edi-
tor. And that's exactly what 1, a.- a reader,
think of the editor of the Dallas News. If 1
were as dumb as the Dallas News writers I d
It's seldom we meet a man of the Star editor's
calibre. He makes mistake and adiu I; em.

After all is said and done, the I
basic rule in hunting squirrels is ,
to "go slow and quiet." \ ou can |
know all there is to know about
the habits of the bushy-tails and
have complete accuracy with a .22,
but if you can't "die" in squirrel
timber your luck is nil.
Once you've learned to walk
with an Indian-tread, Tea Yeager,
veteran squirrel hunter, says Jiat
the ability to recognize squirrel
food trees is of great value. Vou
have lots of things to go by: size
and shape of trunk; color and
structure of bark; leaf size, color
and pattern; and the site on which
various trees are likely to grow-.
There is one point worth know-
ing about oaks, or acorn- Some
(the 20 varieties of white oak)
are sweet, the other, hitter Squir-

on squirrel activity. When zero
