Getting To
Know Texas
Barnard A. Hendricki
Chronicle Special Writer
From the highest point in
Dallas County where Cedar
Hill is located, several creeks
and branches find their first
beginnings. One of these
creeks starts it’s journey to-
ward the Trinity River In the
southern edge of the city. It
begins as a tiny drainage be-
neath the shade of a few Cedars
and hardwood trees and is Just
large enough to merit a culvert
where It crosses Highway G7.
Off to the southeast a broad
shallow depression In open
farms and pastures collects
flow from smaller tributary
swales, but still gives little
hint of the presence of a creek.
But a mile or so to the
southeast the drainage reach-
es more broken country and
there it quickly begins to
gather tributary flow and by
the time it reaches the wood
and steel bridge, where the
southern extension of Joe Wil-
son Road crosses it just Inside
the Ellis County line, flow
from a strong tributary to the
south combines with main
stream flow to form a full
fledged creek carving It’s
beauty deep into the white and
blue limestones of the Austin
formation. Already It has
fashioned It's own small valley
and has nurtured tree clad
woodland scenes of great
beauty where fresh road cuts
serve as back drops for the
beautiful red flowering Texas
Plumes of acy foliaged stems
of such heights as to move
some plant lovers to call them
standing cypesses. These
beautiful plants are charac-
teristic of the beauty to be
found in the scenic areas that
surround Cedar Hill from all
directions.
Downstream from the brid-
ge spanning the lovely steam
the valley grows wider and the
rocklined channel already
more than 25 feet in width
and almost as deeD and car-
rying it's shallow sparkling
flow with ease becomes even
deeper and wider as it winds
Its way through Ovilla, Cedar
Hill's closest neighbor to the
Southeast. Unlike it's coun-
terpart, 'Ten Mile Creek, far-
ther to the north, where big
city growth is crowding close
to the stream banks, Red Oak
Creek still claims It's flow
from a land of farflung, rol-
ling to level, vistas of field,
pastures, and broken country
woodlands. The neat towns
and well kept cemeteries that
grace It’s valleys still retain
that "Early Texas Look.*
Giant red oaks at Ovilla
with trunks more than two
feet In diameter and canopies
that tower amost a hundred
fret tn the air stand not far
from the once famous Ovilla
Camp Meeting Ground where
are available to anyone who
will make a donation to this
fund. We must raise the
money within the 30-day
period if we are to take ad-
vantage of this particular
house.
Some of the classes are
already making plans for fund
raising projects to help-in
addition to. individual dona-
tions. An ice cream supper
will be held after church on
the night of July 10 and the
youth will have a car wash
trees. Here where these great
red oaks guard the banks of
the stream it is easy to see
why the pioneers called the
beautiful tree-lined stream
Red Oak Creek.
The old time revival
campground no longer rever-
berates to the old time gos-
pel songs so loved by the
pioneers. But these same
songs are still sung in the neat
white painted church on higher
ground to the north and at the
gravesides in the well-kept
cemetery nearby. Near the
entrance of the cere me ry and
almost beneath the great cano-
pies of two double-forked pe-
can trees, casting a circle of
shade more than 80 feet in
diameter, we saw the grave of
Edward Stimson, village
blacksmith of O villa in by-
gone years.
Beneath the spreading trees
we could feel the peace that
pervades the village along the
banks of Red Oak Creek.
Though Ovilla no longer has
a blacksmith shop, it still has
a cotton gin and fields that
reach to far horizons. The
horse and mule drawn buggies
and wagons have been replac-
ed by automobiles and trucks
but except for this difference
and the fact that Ovilla is now
an incorporated town, Ovilla
still resembles the Ovilla of
old when camp meetings were
held under the towering oaks,
pecans and walnuts.
If Red Oak Creek reached
no farther than Ovilla, a trip
to view the trees and meadows
of It’s meandering valley and
the flow that sparkles and ed-
dies between beautiful rock
walled banks would be a
memorable experience but
Red Oak Creek still has 26
miles to go before it empties
into the mighty Trinity.
Improvements Begin
On Loop 12
Grading, structures, and
surfacing was authorized last
week by the Texas Highway
Commission for a 2.5 -mile

mated cost Is $1.2 million.

Church) Camp last week at
Bridgeport. They were Lynne
Connatser and Lynn Hickman.
Lynne is our Conference
Council Representative and
will serve as Secretary of that
group. Lynn Hickman is our
representative to the District
Council. Both girls came
back very enthusiastic about
the MYF work for this year.
***
The Senior High MYF will
be going to Lake Whitney on
Friday for a retreat. They
will remain until Sunday and
will have their own worship
services at the lake. Plans
will be made for the year's
work and programs outlined
in addition to lots of fun and
fellowship. The counselors
and several parents will be
accompanying the group. T7ie
pastor will also be attending
the Friday and Saturday ses-
sions.
***
On Thursday, July 7, a cal-
led Quarterly Conference will
be held under the direction
of our new District Superin-
tendent, Walter Underwood,
to take further action on the
new parsonage.
Rules For Filing
Estate Tax Return
What are the requirements
for filing an estate tax return?
This question bothers many
taxpayers, but the rules are
fairly simple. Your ad-
ministrator will have to file
an estate tax return If the
fair market value of your es-
tate Is $60,000 or more on
the date of your death. How-
ever, if there is a surviving
spouse and the estate Is com-
munity property, you do not
have to file unless the estate
exceeds $120,000 since 30 per
—<4 Ike community pro-
perty belongs to the surviving
spouse.
- ftettlr
tion on your estate la impor-
tant since this evaluation af-
fects all future tax transac-
tions on the pn»perty.
