After six weeks time, the White
Deer News received a package of
Russian papers and a magazine
mailed to The News by the Crum-
packers while they were making a
tour of Russian cities.
The newspapers —j very like U. S.
papers, in make-up — are The Mos-
cow News, Daily Worker and The
Worker. A weekly journal of world
affairs, New Times, is quite simi-
lar to our Saturday Review and
other weekly news magazines. All
are printed in English and are iden-
tical with the Russian editions.
Although they may be similar to
U. S. news media, the content of
all are slanted to Communistic
viewpoints, with much emphasis on
Russia’s friendship for foreign
The Crumpackers report that
most of the Russian people believe
everything they read in their news-
The News wishes to thank the
Crumpackers for their thoughtful-
ness in making these papers avail-
able to the citizens of White Deer.
Anyone who wants to read what is
printed in Russian newspapers these
days is welcome to come and do

Last Wednesday, June 10. Farmers Elevator became the first elevator
in Carson County especially equipped to load the new type covered hop-
per cars being built for grain loading by the Santa Fe Railroad. As
seen in the above picture, Morlan Shuman and Burl Caudle watch as
Mike Germany loads 200,060 pounds of wheat into the car from scale
room. Morlan stated that the covered hoppers were better than box
cars for grain loading for many reasons. The cars do not have to be
prepared for loading with grain doors as box cars do. The cars carry
almost twice as much as the average box cars and leakage will no
longer be a problem. Morlan said that Farmers Elevator will be hap-
py to show the new loading device to anyone interested.

Makes Debut For
Callboard Theatre, a business ven-
ture backed by enthusiasm, hard
work and willingness, was establish-
ed in White Deer this week. The
summer theatre was launched by
Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Smith, Jr. when
about 30 youths and adults met
Saturday, June 13, at 1 p.m. The
young people responded to the idea
of a summer theatrical session
from a suggestion which appeared
in the White Deer News concerning
the problem of juvenile delinquen-
cy. They stated that they were not
destructive when guided.
Callboard Theatre will be a pri-
vate summer' business venture for
the Smiths, who are local high
school faculty members. They will
direct speech and drama activities
as well as teach English courses
during the approaching school year.
Opening date for Callboard Thea-
tre is Friday, July 3, at 2 p.m.
“Cinderella” will be presented as a
matinee production especially for
the children. On tap for adult enter-
tainment that evening at 8 p.m.
will be the rollicking comedy,
“Charley’s Aunt.” Other presenta-
tions will be announced later.
Playbooks have been ordered and
casting information will be released
A tremendous redecorating job
has been accomplished on the
building located at 410 Main Street.

stalled. Some of the plumbing has
been replaced in the designated
dressing room area, and a com-
pletely new paint job has been
transferred to the interior of the
building. This carpentry, painting,
cleaning, sanding, mopping and
polishing has been done almost ex-
clusively by interested youth of the
A teen club arrangement is in
the present plans. More details are
to be worked concerning this idea.
They will be known as the Chat and
Coke Club and The Backstage Club
with membership dues. Adults and
parents are automatically members
of these clubs without payment of
any dues. Adults are especially in-
vited to enter into the spirit of this
entertainment for the summer sea-
son. A growing “angel” list is in-
dicative of some interest. “Angels”
,on Broadway are moral and finan-
cial backers of plays to be present-
ed on The Great White Way. Local
angels are invited to give of their
time and talent and any gift offer-
ing will be greatly acknowledged.
