Lingan Tells Of
Jimmy Lingan writes in the
Houston Chronicle: “I fished at Kit
Williams’ lake in Matagorda Coun-
ty, guest of Jaek Emmott, who
‘clubs’ the lake each season. When
we reached Jack’s place we found
that John Gannon and the game
warden, Ben Gaddy, had been there
and after prowling the lake shore
all night had failed to got enough
bullfrogs for breakfast.
“Gannon and Gaddy got right at
noon Friday, however, providing
fish for dinner, along with beans,
bread, and ham, which we purchas-
ed from Dad Estill’s nearby store.
“Dad, one of the most enthusias-
tic anglers along Caney Creek, with
a fine fresh water pond right at his
back door, opened the fresh water
season by going over his redfisb
rids but not wetting a line.”
Mrs. Nini Landrum returned to-
day after spending two weeks with
her mother in Beaumont.

luotas, by counties, for the month of May, 1942.
rotal War Bond quota for the State is $18,594,500.
Svery income earner in the State is expected to step-
ip IVar Bond purchases on a basis of ten per cent or
nore of Income. This is necessary to help America’s
armed forces take the offensive against the Axis
powers. The American voluntary method of War Bond
purchases must be successful in reaching the quotas
set by the Treasury Department for every county in
the nation. The job of every American now is to
stop spending and save dollars to help win the War.
