Hondo was treated to something
unique in political campaigning Tues-
day night, when B. J. Stewart of Ed-
wards County, candidate for State
Senator from the 29th District, ap-
nea red on the streets with Byron L.
Roberts, the Roaming Cowboy of
Barksdale, in a combined concert of
cow-boy songs and jokes and a politi-
cal speech.
A little after eight o’clock, the cow-
boy’s singing brought together a
crowd of some 75 or 80 people in
front of the First National Bank
where they listened to a speech of
some thirty minutes by Mr. Stewart.
Mr. Stwart opposes any Increase f
any kind in the people’s taxes in
these urnes of depression, would bal-
ance the budget by cutting expenses
and would cut expenses by reducing
salaries, and eliminating useless gov-
ernment activities.
He delivered a forceful speech that
went home to his hearers and was
warmly congratulated on his stand for
economy and efficiency in the state
Mrs. T. B. Knopp was hostess to
-me of the lovely midsummer bridge
parties, Friday afternoon of last week,
j entertaining tho Junior Bridge Club
and a number of additional guests,
i’ink, green and yellow in pastel
hades were used in a charming color
cheme and successfully carried out
in Zinnias arranged in baskets in the
living room and dining room. Table
appointments and bridge accessories
featured the chosen color motif.
Following the bridge attractive
.irizc. were awarded Mrs. Alice Rein-
hart, high. Mrs. E. J. Leinwvber. sec-
end high. Mrs. Robert Kollman, b -v.
and Mrs. Earl Starnes, consolation
A delectable salad course with
spiced tea was served. Luncheon ser-
vice in pastel shades of pink, yc.i- v
•• r.d green glassware and table ap-
pcintirents in the same colors again
fatured the chosen motif.
The guest? were delightfully en-
tertained with a musicale, following
the bridge, with Misses Irene and
Either Saathoff rendering beautiful
violin and piano selections.
There were eight tables of player-
including members and guests.
What the bringing in of a new dis-
>verv il field means to the town
nearest tho discovery well, is shown
by the big oil b mm now taking place
a- 1 ini u . in Montgomery County, as
th-’ remit of the big discovery well
drilled i ti it c -.inanity by George
W. Strake.
It is ?port?d that within the first
thirty dav., following the coming in
->f that discovery well more than 20,-
008) outside people visited Conroe to
w,itn*‘.ss the great spctacle of the
mighty new oil giants flowing.
Such n :tir-nco n< this means
prosperity for tho whole community
as it is stated that in Conroe more
than 150 new buildings were erected
in less than 40 days with city proper-
ty prices going very high.
The merchants of Conroe report a
big business >■ ith plenty of money in
the community.
The way the Greenlee well on the
Nixon Farm near Hondo is checking
now and with the confidence for big
product!- n expressed by the drillers
and -oi v ' ho have visited the well,
the future for our home town of Ilo;
do looks otighter in oildom than it
has in some time.
With Hondo the closest trading
point of any size to this Greenlee well,
citizens of our community should
! get in position to reap the harvest
| .hat a new oil field here will mean.
If any of our citizens want to
know the particulars about how rap-
idly lease and royalty values mounted
around the Strake discovery well at
Conroe, or how city property prices
went up, you should ask Mr. Green-
lee, who is drilling the’Nixon well be-
cause he also owns oil property near
Conroe in the new Montgomery
County field.
We should all express our gratitude
to Mr. Greenlee for the straight-for-
wad manner in which he has conduct-
ed his business in this community and
the fast drilling action he has shown
Come on, Mr. Greenlee, drill your
well on in, Hondo s solidly behind
