Six Inch Snow Covers Jacksboro
And Most Of Texas
Beginning at 11:15 a. in.
Wednesday, a steady snow, start-
ing with sleet fell over Jack
County and most of west Texas.
The thermometer ranged from 17
to 25 throughout the night This
is he deepest snow since around
1926, reaching about six inches.
Range cattle are reported as
faring well in Jack County.
Traffic .was slow this morning
and busses were late. Roadways
were covered over makng the find-
ing of the way uncertain. One
woman had a wreck on the high-
way ten miles out, wrecking the
ear badly, though she was not in-
jured. A man turned completely
over but lie was not hurt.
The sun rose Thursday, today,
at 7:26; mostly cloudy but. clear-
ing off, with snow melting some.
The Abilene territory is ice-
locked. Hundreds of cattle are re-
ported frozen to death around

the state of Texas. Recognizing this
fact, the Senate of Texas sent him
in the spring of 1933 to represent
that body in the first Interstate
Assembly that met in Washington,

of a representative of the Senate
and of the House of Representa-
tives of each state and meets to
consider questions of great inter-
