Lyndon Johnson’s “Flving Windmill” !Rev-Ben BeB

By Fire Saturday
Fire, thought to have originated
from faulty electrical wiring. com-
pletely destroyed the 5-room homo
and furnishings of Mr. and Mrs. Low-
ell Norman and family in rorthwes’
Archer City, at alrut 3:30 Saturday
afternoon. The. house was located
about one block east of the home of
Mrs. Emili? Pearston and son, H V.
According to our information, the
blaze was discovered by the little
Norman boys, who rushed to the near-
est neighboring house to turn in the
alarm. Finding no telephone there,
th?y then ran to the Pearston resi-
dence from where the alarm was
nhened in. By the time the fire fight-
ing equipment arrived on the scene
the blaze 'had gained such headway
that it was completely beyond con-
The fire left the Norman family
without a home or furnishings with
the exception of two cr three quilts
the boys saved off the back porch.
Since we have had many inquiries

to render aid in the form of cloth-

A crowd estimated at from 750 to
1000 was assembled in the business
district of this city last Saturday
morning at least 30 minutes before
the scheduled arrival of Congressman
Lyndon Johnson in his helicopter
dubbed the “Johnson City Windmill."
This helicopter is a very peculiar
mechanical bird, and an attraction
well worth driving many miles to see.
The machine, bearing a pilot and
Con^resman Johnson, arrived al-
most exactly cn schedule and after
circling the business district three
or four times finally was brought al-
most to a perfect standstill so far as
any forward motion was concerned,
and after hovering momentarily over
the middle of main street rorth of
the court house, settled straight down
to the pavement and came to rest
with as much grace and ease as any
duck thae ever settled down cn a
puddle cf mud and water.
There had been seme question in
rur mind prior to 9:45 Saturday
morning, a-s to which should the ap-
oelation. “The Johnson City Windmill"
be applied. Johnson or the helicopter.
After listening to his short pointed
talk, we perscnally decided it was not
firing to Johnson himself, as his re-
marks did not smack of windmill pol-
ities to ut=. as have always those of
the present incumbent of the office
to which Johnson aspires, that of
United States Senator, now graced—
or disgraced—by W. Lee O’Daniel.
Word was received here this morn-
ing that Rev. Ben Bell, former pastor
of the Archer City Methodist church,
dropped dead sometime late Wednes-
day in Van Alstyne, Texas, to which
nastorate he was recently transferred
from Paris. Texas.
Rev. Bell served fou.r years from
1941 to 1944 in the local church and
w-s held in high esteem net only by
the members of that church, but by
all those who knew him. and his un-
timely passing will be sadly regret-
Funeral arrangements were incom-
plete at the time we went to press,
but it was thought services would
be conducted Friday at Sherman.
Survivor? include the widow, one
daughter. Mrs. David Burns, and a
son, Billy Ben, now in the U, S.

ficial visit Tuesday morning and ask-
ed for a couple of sandwiches “to go.”
Ws instructed the madam to fix the
fellow the requested morsels with the
thought in mind that two ends could
be gained thereby. First it would rid
the back step of the unwelcome visit-
or and at the same time remove from
cur sight a quantity of left over meat
that we feared would eventually find
its way into our plate in some atro-
The fellow appeared to be some-
Vhsre in the 60’*, and »po'» with a
