THE BELLAIRE TEXAN
Monday Is Final Day
For all of six weeks the var-
ious contestants in the "Big
Prize” subscription contest,
sponsored by the Bellaire TEXAN
have busily engaged accumulat-
ing a large total number of
votes. Contest ends Monday, May
10 at 1 p.m.
During this time the contest
has gained fame that is wide-
spread, It was hailed from the
start as being the most liberal
unique and altogether attractive
affair of its kind.
With the race now in its final
stage, contestants are all a tin-
gle with high hopes and ambi-
tions to gain first honors and
now the effort and diligence
shown by each during the past
few weeks will be crowned by an
avalanche of subscriptions and
accompanying votes that is due
to bring thousands of “fans” to
their feet rooting excitedly, for
their own particular favorite.
Success in an affair of this
kind sometimes depends upon
keen Judgment and timely ac-
tion. Throughout allhisotry,peo-
ple possessing that faculty of
sensing opportunity when they
see it and grasping at the right

moment - seem to acquire the
best things in life, while those
undecided and afraid stand back
and talk about what they may have
done. The saddest words of tongue
or pen to quote a classic are,
"It might have been.”
Determination to win, coupled
with relentless activity during
the short remaining time, can
make any one of the various lead-
ers a major prize winner, but to
relax now is suicidal to success.
We wish we could give a new
car to each and every active
contestant but of course that
would be impossible for us to do.
One of you will win that beautiful
Chevy Nova the rest of the con-
testants will receive cash prizes.
If you do not win the first prize
automobile, don’t be a poor los-
er. Be a good sport, take it good
naturedly - congratulate the one
who does win the prize car.
Anyone can be a good sport
if they win the top prize but it
shows real character if one knows
how to be a good loser.
Mr V.M. Preston, publisher of
the Bellaire TEXAN said today
"The prize Chevy Nova will be in
front of the TEXAN office and
ready for the winner in the con-
test to drive home in it, just as
soon as the vote count has been
finished.” That will be about 2
p.m., May 10. The rest of the con-
testants can pick up their checks
Tuesday. Mav 11th.
