INFORMAL CONFERENCE HELD
AT GALVESTON; DISCUSS
KENEDY COUNTY GAP
Galveston, Oct. 6.—Although no for-
mal business was transacted, delegates
to a called meeting of the Hug-the-
Coast Highway Association held an
informal conference here Friday after-
noon with representatives present from
many points along the route from Or-
ange to Brownsville. Considerable re-
sentment was expressed by valley del-
egates to D. K. Martin of Snn Anton-
io, a member of the state highway
commission, in an article published in
the Houston Post Thursday, October
4, in which the commissioner was quot-
ed as saying that “construction of the
Kenedy County gap at this time would
deprive other sections of the state of
their share of funds.”
Improvement of the Kenedy County
gap of the coastal highway, now bar-
red to travel by the locked gates of
large ranch owners, continues to be the
immediate objective of the association.
Another meeting of the highway as-
sociation will be held at Corpus Chris-
ti on October 18, at which time officers
will be elected and plans to continue
the campaign to bring about pave-
ment of the Kenedy County section
will be discussed. Present officers of
the association art: Dr. Charles Mar-
nit*, of Tivoli, president; J. F. Bar-
natt, Palacios, vice president; II. C.
Innis, Port Lavaca, secretary.
To Seek Route Opening
“At the Corpus Christi meeting we
will endeavor to persuade the ranch
owners to open the route at once,”
Nat Wetzel of Raymondville, a director
of the association, said. “The state
highway commission completed a sur-
vey of the road, made under the direc-
tion of T. W. Bailey, division engineer
at Corpus Christi, this year. Until
the road is actually opened and the
right of way becomes the property of
the state, it will be impossible to se-
cure the federal funds r.quired for im-
provement,” he continued.
“The federal government stands
ready to advance funds just as soon
as the state definitely opens and des-
ignates the road. Federal designation
of the route will then be made.
“Mr. McDonald, chief of the feder-
al bureau of public roads, has advised
Congressman Milton T. West of
Brownsville that if the state highway
commission will include the Kenedy
County road as one of the projects
to be built under the present federal
road building program ,his department
will indorse and support the construc-
tion of the road. It will, of course,
be necessary for the state commission
to act before the federal authorities
The estimated cost of paving the
section is $1,750,000. Deeds to the
right-of-way have been signed by
Kenedy County land owners and depos-
ited in a Brownsville bank, to be turn-
ed over to the state highway commis-
sion, “whenever the commission has
the money to pave the road."
Association numbers pointed out
that the highway commission is look-
ing to the federal government to ob-
tain most, of the funds, and that feder-
aMfdney cannot be obtained until the
commission holds actual possession of
the right-of-way, and opens the route
to travel. Fred C. Pabst, long an ad-
vocate of the highway, Senator T. J.
Holbrook, leader of the fight in the leg-
islature which resulted in a legislative
order to the highway commission to
proceed with a survey for a road thru
Kenedy County; J. W. Davis, presi-
dent of the Galveston Auto Protective
Association; Judge O. C. Dancey of
Brownsville, Democratic nominee for
the office of Cameron County judge;
Mr. Wetzel, Mr. Barnett and others
took part in the discussion here Fri-
BIG CATTLE DEAL
G. A. Duffy sold a thousand head of
two-year-old steers and a ten-thous-
and acre lease in Jackson County to
Murphy & Pickering of Victoria a
few days ago.
Somebody asked if the consideration
was satisfactory. “If it hadn’t been,
I wouldn’t have sold them,” was the
answer. So all that we know now is
that it was a big deal and everybody
is well pleased.—El Campo News.

New Study Lamp on
Display at C.P.L.Co.
Alton Queen, who is attending A. &
M. College, spent the week end here
with home folks and friends. Alton
has been made sports editor of “The
Battalion,” the student publication.
His page is filled with good reading,
dealing with the sports of the col-
lege, which are well written and shows
Alton has the earmarks of a real
Mr. and Mrs. Ed Yount, of Hinton,
Okla., are here for an extended visit
with Mr. and Mrs. Henry Barrett and
family. Mr. Barrett took them on a
fishing trip Sunday and gave them a
good initiation into his popular past-
time at Palacios, as Mr. Yount caught
an 8-pound red and his wife made a
catch of several nice trout.
Something radically different in elec-
trical aids to health and comfort, and
which has been kept under cover at
Central Power and Light Company for
a week, is the new study lamp which
gives both direct and indirect illum-
ination. The lamp is on display now
at the C. P. and L. office, for the first
time in this city.
“When one Realizes that | three-
fourths of all people over 50 suffer
from defective vision, and one-fourth
of all our young people are likewise
impaired, it is certain that much of the
fault lies in inadequate illumination,”
said J. C. Studeman, local manager of
the utility concern. “The new study
lamp provides scientifically correct il-
lumination. It is the work of the na-
tion’s most eminent lighting special-
ists, scientists and physicians, and
bears the endorsement of all the lead-
ing illuminating organizations in the
country,” he added.
Tin new study lamp differs from or-
dinary table or desk lamps in its
hoighth—28 inches, and its construc-
tion, which prevents any direct light
coming in contact with the eyes. How-
ever, those who have inspected the new
lamp declare its illumination, while
soft and diffused, assuredly makes
reading a pleasure instead of a task,
Mr. Studeman remarked that the
study lamp was created as the result
of a prominent lighting engineer vis-
iting his daughter at college. “The
engineer found the lighting conditions
for the study poor, that his daughter’s
progress in school was being affected
by the situation,” Mr. Studeman said.
“This man’s determination to give his
girl a fair chance led to the develop-
ment of the study lamp, which is de-
signed to make for easier seeing by
The Palacios Sharks started their
bid for the championship of District
8-C Inst Friday afternoon with a thrill-
ing win of 7 to 0 over the Ganado In-
dians. Palacios, after driving ^>me
fifty yards down the field late in the
first quarter was held on the six-yard
line for three downs. On the fourth
down, Snider, heady quarter for the
Sharks, elected to pass to Anders,
which was good for a touchdown. The
extra point was added by a plunge
over right guard.
The play of the line was a deciding
fnctor in winning Friday’s game, with
Colvin, C. Barrett and S. Barrett out-
standing. Snider, Anders, Jensen and
Queen were a combination of backs
that helped hold the Indians scoreless
for the rest of the game.
The next game for the Sharks will
be Friday, October 12, with Damon at
Damon. This is a non-conference game
but will mean a great deal in grooming
the Sharks for the next conference bat-
tle with Port Lavaca in Palacios, Oc-
tober 19. It will be remembered that
the Port Lavaca team defeated the
Sharks last year and both the teams
and coach are out to revenge them-
selves this year.
The boys are working hard to pro-
duce a winning team, and this team
can go places in the newly created con
ferince with the help and patronage
of the people of Palacios.
Coach Mercer wishes to express his
appreciation and thanks to Mr. Ru-
pert Elliott, Mr. Weldon Sullivan and
Mr. Shelton for their fine officiating at
the game last week.

HON JOHN M. CORBETT INJURED
AS CAR GOES IN DITCH
Returning from San Antonio Friday
night the negro chauffeur for Hon.
John M. Corbett, of this city, chief
counsel for the Texas Gulf Sulphur
Company, lost control of the car on the
highway near Alleyton, a few miles
east of Columbus and ditched it.
Mr. Corbett, riding on the rear seat,
was thrown violently to the car floor
and received serious and painful in-
juries, the most serious of which be
ing a broken pelvis.
Mr. Corbett was brought immediate-
ly to the sulphur company’s hospital
at Newgulf, where he is now confined.
It is reported that it will be some time
before the injured parts will be healed
sufficiently for him to be out.—Bay

It was on one of these regular walks
of his that the accident happened. It

Carpenter walked off of the concrete

Officers for the ensuing year were
elected, Mrs. C. L. Haynes, president,

were welcomed into the circle.
J. F. Barnett in Charge
Rotary Club Program
Mr. J. F. Barnett had charge of the
program at the Rotary Luncheon Wed.
nesday, using for his subject “Money,’
introducing the thought that “Rags
make money, money makes bankers,
bankers make loans, loans make pov-
erty and poverty makes rags.” It was
one of the really worth while programs
so far given. Mr. Barnett was ably
assisted by Jim C. Lewis, one of Bay
City’s most obliging bankers, and Otto
Frosch, of the Palacios State Bank and
Tru3t Company. Such programs are
very interesting and instructive and
we hope to hear more of them. H. V.
Barr is program man for next week.
Visiting Rotarians were Dave Buck-
ley and D. D. Boyd of Port Lavaca,
A. Harris, S. S. Taylor and J. C. Lew-
is of Bay City.

September 23rd 1918. Monday
Second Lieutenant Corriveau was as-
signed to the first platoon of the fif-
ty fifth company. The fourth pla-
toon has been given to a hard egg by
the name of Mahoney. We were drill-
ed as a company this marning by Mr.
Cornell. In the afternoon we were
turned over to the shavetails for pla-
Mahoney took his platoon for a gal-
lop. He stood in the middle of the
field and had the platoon on double
time, running around until their ton-
gues hung out,
Mr. Cornell saw this and after a
short time blew his whistle and gave
the signal to assemble the company for
a rest. The fourth platoon came in
pantiag like race horses. In fifteen
minutes we were turned lose again,
and Mahoney did the same thing.
At three thirty we marched home.
Had supper, then school of instruction
from six to seven.
Major Tarsons was our hard batal-
lion commander and he lost his com-
mand. Mahoney is our hardest shave-
tail, and I am wondering what will be-
come of him. Captain Heck has a
long way to go before he will be dis-
liked as much as the other two. He
would probably be allright if he were
a bigger man physically. He is so
small that I guess he thinks he has
to act that way or we won’t know who
the skipper is.
September 24th, 1918. Tuesday
Drilled out five hours today. Lieu-
tenant Mahoney must have got a talk-
ing to last night. Today he acts like
his platoon might be human. It’s a
good thing we have Mr. Cornell. Few
others would have butted in.
Officers in line companies below th*
rank of major should not take them-
selves too seriously. Two battles is
the limit for most of them before they
are either killed or wounded.
September 25th, 1918. Wednesday
We went to drill at eight a. m. At
ten a runner brought word to come
in and pack up. We had dinner, then
at one o’clock we marched out of Ble-
noid les Toul, marching into Domger-
main at four p. m. a distance of eleven
kilometers (seven miles.)
We stacked arms and packs along
the rnilroad track and waited. ^
freight train was backed in. The
horses and mules and kitchens were
loaded first. You can’t crowd the ani-
mals. A car will hold eight animals
or it will hold forty men or MORE.
Then the batallion started to loan at

In the last car the first platoon was
to ride, but there were forty seven
men left instead of forty. We thought
that th-: extra seven men could be
placed one in each of the last seven
ears, but that won’t be thought of un-
til the war is over.
At eight-thirty p. m. the train pull-
ed out for somewhere else in France;
we kniw not where. We sat up awhile
and talked. As the evening wore on
the men removed their shoes and lay
down to sleep with their blankets and
canvas around them on the hard floor.
One man would lay with his head one
way and the next man in the oppo-
site direction, \i t uch man had a pair
of feet on each hide of him. If we

Austin, Oct. 9.—Payment of $16 per
capita state aid to the public schools
for the 1933-34 school year was com-
pleted Tuesday by the department of
education with remittance of $787,826.
The remittance of 50 cents for each
of 1,575,752 enumerated scholastics,
brought the total of state funds dis-
tributed to schools for the preceding
school year to $25,211,832.
First payment of the 1934-35 ap-
portionment of $16.50 state aid will
be made in December. Delay was
caused by failure complete census
rolls within the us d time. Close ex-
amination of census rolls reduced the
number of scholastics enumerated by
15,281 to a total of 1,560,471. Elim-
ination of scholastics from the rolls
will result in an aggregate saving of
more than $250,000, which will be ap-
plied toward payment of the larger
