At a meeting of the ex-Rangers
of Texas held in the district court
room in this city Tuesday aftemon,
an association to be known as the
ex-Texas Rangers Association was
The meeting was called to order
by W. M. Green, who was elected
temporary chairman and Rev. S. F.
Roundtree of Swisher county de-
livered a. very fervent prayer. Henry
Sackett of Coleman, was elected
The welcome address was deliver-
ed by Mayor Nolan Queen, who in
the name and in behalf of the
people of our little city extended
the Rangers a very hearty welcome.
In his address he reviewed some
of the work that had been done by
the boys who gave protection to the
frontier and especially did he men-
tion that the early settlers in this
county know just what the Rangers
meant to them, for a number of
raids by hostile bands of Indians
in this and nearby counties resulted'
in loss of lives and the destruction
of property. The mayor stated that
no very extensive entertainment
had been prepared, for the reason
that it had been impossible to get
information as to the number of
people who would attend and other
particulars in this line, but he want-
ed it understood that Weatherford
had surrendered; unconditionally, to
the veterans of seventy-four and all
they had to do was to command and
their commands would be obeyed.
He further asked that they consider
Weatherford as their permanent
home and assured the gentlemen that
it would be a pleasure to give them
entertainment in future years.
John O. Allen of Cookville, replied
Mr.- Chairman, Ladies and Gentle-
men: To you sir, and your people
of this splendid little city, that we
first knew as a frontier trading post,
as a representative of the class of
men Who helped to make it possible
for you to accomplish the wonderful
things that, you have accomplished,
I wish to thank you for your splen-.
did words of eulogy and encourage-
ment to the brave old boys who
defended the home of your parents
with their lives, for I must say
that I don’t think that the sun of
Texas ever shined on a braver set
of men than these old boys, many of
whom have battle scars received
being the organization of a veteran
Ranger Association, upon which all
Rangers present voted‘favorable. In
regard to membership, it was stated
by Chairman Green that he supposed
he was responsible for the call be-
ing made ^nd that while he was
a member of the old Frontier Bat-
talion, he had Issued the call es-
pecially to the former members of
the six companies which composed
the battalion, but he believed it
would be a good plan to admit
Rangers who were in the service
prior to this time, of which there
were a number present.
Following some discussion a com-
mittee on recommendations and or-
ganization was appointed, and the
following report was adopted:
Resolved, That the name of this
association is the ex-Texas Rangers
Resolved second; That the offi-
cers of this organization shall be as

A. P. Ritchie, Comanche, Texas, ad-
jutant; Henry Sackett, Coleman,
Texas, orderly sargent and secre-
tary; S. F. Roundtree, Swisher coun-
ty, Texas chaplain.
Resolved, that the first meeting
of this association be and is hereby
held on this the 10th day of August,
1920 in the city of Weatherford.
Resolved that the officers of this
organization shall constitute an ex-
ecutive committee, a majority of
whom may act and shall have full
power and authority to act, in all
matters relating to the affairs of
this organization, and shall select the
day and date and place of the next

Resolved that the membership fee
