CELINA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 1953
ON the Record
By BENNIE O’BRIEN
The Record’s story a week or
two ago which told of Mrs. J. G.
Rothfus’ gift to the Record editor
of a “dozen eggs in a half-dozen
shells” brought to light two more
examples of the enterprise and
originality of Celina hens.
Mrs. Pat Lloyd telephoned to
say that in her flock was a white
Leghorn hen who outdid the Roth-
fus hen with an egg that measured
8 inches in circumference the long
way and 7 inches the short way
P. D. Williams brought to The
Record office three eggs he found
in his hen-nests which indicated
his hens might be faking lessons
from Salvador Dali. Two of the
eggs closely resembled a football,
with the stitching and other mark-
ings clearly outlined in relief on
the shell. The other looked much
like a squash, curved neck and all.
The Record is hereby declaring
war on “et al.”, “et vir” and “et
ux.” These Latin words and abbre-
viations which mean, respectively,
“and others,” “and husband,” and
“and wife,” have been lawyers’
favorites since time immemorial,
and they have crept into the court
news columns of most country
newspapers, The Record not ex-
Since the public schools seem
determined by their ommission of
Latin from the curriculum to make
the language of Horace even dead-
er, The Record will do its part in
administering the coup de grace
by substituting plain English for
these old favorites of the legal
If you see “et al.”, “et vir” or
“et ux.” in The Record from now
on, It will be because the editorial
pencil wasn’t looking.
Instead of courageously weeding
out the graft, incompetence and
sheer thievery inherited from the
New and Fair Deals, the Repub-
lican administration is taking the
course of least resistance. Instead
of a reduction in taxes, citizens of
the United States mqy, on the con-
trary, be faced soon with the pros-
pect of paying even more. Admin-
istration leaders are reported to be
toying with the idea of a national
sales tax and, if this comes, it will
not be in place of the income tax,
but superimposed upon it.
There can be no tax falling
heavier on the individual of low
income than the sales tax. If one
must spend $2,000 a year to live,
and one man earns $2,000 while
another earns $4,000, then the
$2,000-a-year man is taxed on his
entire income, while the other has
$2,000 free of the sales tax.
The plea that we must continue
with the present high tax rates for
the sake of our military security
is a false one, as can be shown by
the fact that the Air Force has
awarded contracts to the Kaiser-
Frazer corporation for airplanes
at $1,200,000 each while the Fair-
child corporation was receiving
$260,000 each for the same plane.
So long as the government has
unlimited money to spend, it will
spend it, on first one excuse, and
then another. The only way under
heaven we can stop them is to
limit the supply of money and
credit they have available. Their
money can be limited by a reduc-
tion in taxes. The credit can be
limited by placing United States
currency back on the gold stand-
ard, where it belongs.
Methodist Pastor Here
Will Ask For Transfer
Rev. C. B. Garrett, pastor of the
First Methodist Church here, has
announced that he has requested a
transfer to another church, subject
to the action of the North Texas
Methodist Conference, which will
be in session in Dallas this week-
end. Appointments of pastors will
be announced Sunday.
Mr. Garrett stated he was hope-
ful of being transferred to a col-
lege town where their son, Jimmie,
may attend college after his grad-
uation from high school next year.
The Rev. Luther Nelson, a for-
mer pastor here, will preach the
morning sermon at the Methodist
church next Sunday. Mr. Nelson is
an Army chaplan, stationed in Al-
buquerque, N. M.

Vaporizers Not All They’re
Cracked Up to Be, Is Claim
AUSTIN, TEXAS.—Don’t put
too much stock in advertised
claims for the bug-killing proper-
ties of so-called “vaporizers,”
State Health Officer George W.
Cox cautioned Texans today.
He said “indiscriminate use” of
the gadets in homes or sleeping
quarters could make the fumes
more toxic to humans than to in-

The first trickles of what prom-
ises to be a flood of grain had
reached Celina early this week, and
the full force of the golden deluge
was expected to be felt by next
Monday, if the current weather
For weeks now, observers of the
grain fields about Celina have
said, “We’ve got it made—-if noth-
ing happens,” and have kept
their fingers crossed. Now, it ap-
pears that, barring an improbable
spell of wet, stormy weather, the
best crop of wheat, oats and bar
ley in years is virtually “in the
W. R. Baldridge, local grain
buyer, said Tuesday that C. F.
Choate harvested a crop of volun-
teer barley that averaged 59
bushes to the acre. Moreover, it
tested 49 to 50 pounds to the
bushel, and was completely free of
wheat and oats. Baldridge said
most of the wheat so far was going
into the government loan, and net-
ting the farmer $2.12 to $2.14
after handling and storage was
paid. This is 12 to 14 cents above
prices being offered by dealers.
All the wheat Baldridge had seen
was of particularly good grade.
The loan on oats, he said, was 86
to 87 cents. Oats can be stored on
the farm, but wheat must go into
government-approved storage to
be eligible for loan.
R. L. Willard, Jr., another Ce-
lina grain buyer, Tuesday bought
71,440 pounds of wheat of Robert
E. Julian, which had been produced
on 35 acres. This is an average of
a fraction over 34 bushels to the
acre. All was No. 1 wheat, 13%
moisture and tested 64 and 65
pounds per bushel. The grain was
cut by Raymond Huddleston and
his son, Billy Ray Huddleston,
combine operators. Price was $2.00
Other combine operators have
said most of the wheat they are
cutting is averaging better than
30 bushels per acre.
Abundance of Notaries,
If you have a legal paper that
requires the signature and seal of
a notary public, you shouldn’t have
to go far in Celina before you
locate a notary. Thirteen Celina-
ites and one Weston man Monday
applied for commissions as
notary public for the next two

Monday as hogs hit the highest
peak since November 1948 at
Fort Worth. Choice butcher hogs
sold at $25.15-25.75. The joy was
tempered by the fact that several
years of low prices for hogs had
thinned down the hog population
to where while the price was good,
the numbers were few.

to rest or to college for summer
W. H. Miller, superintendent, re-
mained in his office, where he is
tying up the loose ends, and mak-
ing preparations for the building
program which the school will em-
bark upon soon. He said it was
hoped to get started in about a
week on a vocational agriculture
building and a band hall. The lat-
ter will include a band room,
another class room, and office
space, and will be built on the
present campus. The ag building
will be across the street south of
the present building, on a 50-foot
lot recently purchased by the
Jobs for most, and college for a
few, beckoned to the graduates.
Questioned as to the plans of his
crop of 1953 grads, Mr. Miller told
as best he knew what they were
planning to do, now that their
high school days are over.
Nolan Dorsey hasn’t made up
his mind—yet. Leon Mosier wants
to be an automobile mechanic.
Louis Pafford has already enlisted
in the Coast Guard and is awating

the annual Balfour award for ex-
cellence in scholarship, loyalty, and
achievement. She was chosen by
the faculty for this and the activ-
Matilda Grey did not state her
plans. Peggy Harvell, another
graduate, is the recent bride of Don
Loftice. A job in Dallas will also
claim Barbara Hunn, and Wanda
Lloyd will probably go to work,
but she does not yet know what
she will do. Glenda- Gayle Melton,

George has a position in Dallas.
As for the teachers, the end of
school was the signal for them to
scatter, too. Miss Anna Graves,
third grade teacher, and Miss
Mary Graves, sixth grade, moved
back to Sherman, to join their
father for the summer. Miss Mar-
jorie Holder has moved to her
home in McKinney, and will rest

Fiftieth Anniversary of
Home Dem Work Observed
Members of the Collin County
Council of home demonstration
clubs held their regular monthly
meeting in the basement of the
First Baptist church in McKinney
with 62 club women attending.
Theme of the program was a cele-
bration of the fiftieth anniversary
of extension and home demon-
stration club work.
Collin County’s first home dem-
onstration agent was Miss Martha
Ganzer in 1918. Home demonstra-
tion club work has continued in
Collin County since that time.
Thirty-two women were present at
the meeting who had been in home
demonstration club work from 20
to 35 years. Miss Eva Bryan of
Lebanon presented the history of

Arthur Sims Home After
Treatment at Gonzales
Warm Springs Foundation
GONZALES.—Arthur M. Sims,
Jr., Celina, recently a patient at
Gonzales Warm Springs Founda-
tion, has been discharged from
that Texas treatment center and
returned home. Mr. Sims is the son
of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur M. Sims,
Sr. of Celina.
Mr. Sims was referred to the
Gonzales physical medicine spec-
ialty hospital by his physician for
a program of rehabilitation follow-
ing a siege of polio suffered Sep-
tember, 1937. He was admitted
As part of the continuing treat-
ment program, a series of home
routines have been set up for Mr.
Sims, and he will return to the
Gonzales hospital for periodic
checks-ups and to maintain the
correct fit of his braces and other
appliances. Improved techniques
in hospital and home-adminstered
treatments have enabled the treat-
ment center to effectively reduce
the average hospitalization period
and thus accept a greater number
of patients each year.
Gonzales Warm Springs Foun-
dation is a non-profit, non-secta-
rian hospital, built and maintained
by contributions from all over the
state of Texas. First opened in
1941, there are now facilities to
house 105 patients. A building
program just getting under way
will increase that capacity by
about 30 per cent.
Sunday’s Fort Worth Star-Tele-
gram carried a photograph of an
unusual hydrangea plant which is
growing at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. L. D. Cozart, 3604 Hamp-
shire, Fort Worth. The plant is 4
feet tall and boasts 70 large
blooms. Mr. and Mrs. Cozart are
former Celinaites, the former a son
of Mrs. Minnie Cozart, and the
latter a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Gid Nichol of Celina.
been in club work for 10 or more
years. Fifty-two of the women
present had been in home demon-
stration club work for this period
of time and received a rose for
their activities in the improvement
of their home and rural life.
In the past 35 years home dem-
onstration club work in Collin
county has advanced from the can-
ning club to one of trying to im-
prove all phases of the home and
family living. The home demon-
stration agents in those days rode
in a horse and buggy or a Model
T Ford and fought very muddy bad
roads, in order to assist the farm
families of Collin County. It is
quite a contrast to the good roads
and fast cars which we have this
day and time.
Mrs. G. H. Allen of Celina pre-
sided over the afternoon program.
The group voted during the busi-
ness session to pay $20, $1 per
club, on the National 4-H Founda-
tion which is to be built in Wash-
ington, D. C. as a shrine to 4-H
The council also voted to give
$48 toward the expense of 4-H
club camp in Trinidad and to A&M.
Mrs. John Shipp of Lucas, and
Mrs. R. N. Furr of Rhea Mills and
Mrs. Lurline Daspit, agent, had a
round table discussion on the
District 4-H club meeting which
was held in Denton in April.
Betty Summers and Jean Car-
penter of Allen, District 4-H club
winners, presented a dairy food
demonstration on “Better Looks
Through The Milky Way.”
