Seen And Heard
By Mrs. Florence Baal
Ben Franklin's Best—
It has been said that other
men may have been greater
than Benjamin Franklin, but
that few have been more
human. Philosopher, states-
man, man of letters, Franklin
was first of all a man. That
he was a witty and wise one,
these sayings by him well
Lost time is never found again.
In this world, nothing- can be
said to be certain except death and
Laziness travels so slowly that
poverty soon overtakes him.
Virtue may not always make a
lace handsome, but vice will cer-
tainly make it ugly.
A penny saved is a penny got.
Glass, China and Reputation are
easily cfacked, and never well
Wish not so much to live long,
as to live well.
If you know how to spend less
than you get, you have the phil-
You may talk too much on the
best of subjects.
Let thy maid servant be faith-
ful, strong and homely.
All would live long, but none
would be old.
Marry your son when you will,
but your daughter when you can.
He that falls in love with him-
self will have no rivals.

This will assure both an adequate

Vehicle Inspection Deadline April 15
Col. Homer Garrison Jr., direc-
tor of the Texas Department of
Public Safety, said that more than
two-million motor vehicles remain
to be inspected before the April 15
deadline. He urged all Texas mo-
torists to obtain their new inspec-
tion stickers at an early date.
Garrison reported that more
than 4,300,000 will be inspected in
Texas this year. To date only about
half that number have gone through
inspection line* at some 4,400 in-
spection stations located through-
out the state. |
The DPS director pointed out
that inspection stations cannot in-
spect vehicles during wet, rainy
weather, a condition normally pre-
vailing during late winter and ear-
ly spring. To make sure every ve-
hicle owner is able to obtain his
1960 inspection sticker in time,
Garrison suggested that plans be
made now to visit an inspection
station, before inspection lines

that 37 per cent of the Texas ci-
ties over 10,000 population in 1960
were in the small city classifica-
tion only ten years ago.
Of those cities still below the
10,000 mark reporting to the
League, 17 have doubled or more
than doubled population since 1950.
