Turns Up Here
Fine Cress who recently pur-
chased the Kozy Lunch cafe in this
city told u* a few days ago of
an interesting incident that occur-
red a few days before in his cafe,
new known as the F. M. Cross
According to the story told by
Cross, he and a brother, George
Cross, entered the cafe business
in this city 33 years ago, and as
a business booster handed out a
check good for five cents in trade
<o cash customers making a pur-
chase of the necessary dimensions.
One day recently, Cress stated, a
person entered his cafe here and
ordered a cup of coffee. When she
finished the coffee, she reached
into her purse and brought out
one of the 33-year-cld checks ar.d
proffered it as pay, asking if it
was still gcod for a nickel’s worth
"Gosh, yes,” Cross said, "in fact
it’s new good for two cups.”
,Cross’ brother, George, partner
here 33 years age-, is now operat-
ing a Cross Cafe in Aspermont,
Tex. ’■ W
B. P. Berry presented the Vol
ureteer firemen with a check for
$100.00 this week from the Claude

Critical shortages in animal by-
products during World War II
were recalled today by Jim Mc-
Donald, general manager of Cen-
tral Hide & Rendering Co. in a
letter to The Archer County News.
During those troublous times,
according to McDonald, the farm-
ers and stockmen of this area aid-
ed materially in supplying needed
greases, animal hides and protein
concentrates used in vast quantities
to further the defense effort. They
did so by promptly reporting the
presence of dead or crippled stock
on their farms and in their feed
lots to Central Hide & Rendering
Comppny, which is the largest con-
cern of its kind who pays cash for
dead ar.d crippled stock in Archer
“The current re-armament pro-
gram is again creating serious
ohertages in these commodities,”
McDonald said. Manufacture of
such items as gun powder, medi-
cine, plastics, soaps and shoes for
the armed services, and of vitamin
enriched stock and poultry feeds
for the farmers and stockmen at
home, account largely for current
Shortages, he explained.
"Stock raisers can now contri-
bute materially to the re-armpment
program, and benefit themselves
at the same time by promptly re-
p.rting all dead stock. Farms,
pastures and feed lots can in this
way be kept clean and free of dead
animals,” he said.

The Archer County Commission-
ers’ Court in regular session Mon-
day took under advisement a
couple of petitions asking that a
special election be held to give the
vo ers a chance to express their
approval or vice versa cn two dis-
tinct issues. One is the purchase
by Archer County cf 4 additional
fire trucks, one to be stationed in
each commissioner’s precinct to be
used in fighting not only prairie
fires but also structural fires.
It is estimated t^at $20,000 will
be required tc- purchase the trucks
and provide the essential housing
facilities for the equipment. This
petition has the names cf 278 vot-
The other petition by which the
ccmmissioner3’ court seeks the
permission of John Q. to assess a
30 cent advalorem tax to replace
that of the same amount taken
henceforth by the state. This 30
cent tax, according to County
Judge J. C. Strawn, Jr., will not
affect your tax statement in the
least as you have been paying it
all the time. The only difference is
that it will be taken by Archer
County whereas it has been going
to the state. This money, according
to the petition, is to be used for
the building and maintenance of
farm-to-market and lateral roads.
238 Voters’ names adorned this pe-
Finding the petitions in order
the court set April 7th as the date
for the special election covering
So that the voters will be able
to learn full and complete infor-

AUSTIN, Tex.—Mere than 17.-
800 truck arrests were made cn
Texias highways for overloading
and ether violations for the year
ending August 31, 1950, according
-to a recent report released by Kent
Odom, chief of the License and
'Weights Division of the Depart-
ment of Public Safety.
8,447 cases were filed in Justice
Courts throughout the state,
charging the opera! icon of vehicles
with loads in excess of the 48.000
pourd gross load limit and over
18,000 pounds of weight on each
truck axle; 3,801 cases charging
operation in excess of registered
gross weight of the truck and 5.582
cases were filed for miscellaneous
offenses, such as overlength, over-
width, driving while intoxicated
and operating without permits.
Acccrding to the report, nine
trucking companies were arrested
more than 10 Otimes last year. One
Dallas firm with 265 arrests, was
fined over $5,000 for hauling more
than a million pounds excessive
The License and Weights Divi-
sion cf the Department of Public
Safety is composed of only 33
inspectors, who must work in pairs
patrolling the 36,840 miles of the
Texas Highway System. During
the peried covered by Chief Odom’s
report, these guardians of the state
roads checked more than 72.000
rucks and found one out of every
feur were violating the law.
The January monthly report just
released by the Public Safety De-
partment indicates an increase in
highway truck law violations. It
Shows a total of 2,051 arrests.
Many s ates have found the only
effective way to prevent these con-
stant violations of overloading
’rucks on state and county roads,
is by requiring the overloaded
trucks to reduce the excessive
weight ,0 the legal limits before
proceeding over the reads.
Texas has no such unloading on
the spot law. A bill is now pending
in the Senate, known as H. B. 11.
designed to stop the prac’ice of
overloaded trucks continuing on
their way after paying a small
Justice Ccurt fine. The prcposal
would alsc give au hority to the
Department of Public Safety, the
County Sheriff and his deputy to
make such arrests.
A deal was completed here Mon-
day whereby J. W. Covington will

it and the fathers are always so
very busy just trying to keep milk
