It doesn’t seem to be much more
trouble to write it 1928 than it was
The coldest weather prevailed here
this week that has bean registered
since 1918 according to people who
keep these records of the weather.
The temperature went as low Sunday
night and Monday morning as 8 de-
grees above zero, and remained freel-
ing cold for several days.

We feel that there is no Other coun-
try newspaper in Texas that has the
quality >of subscribers that the Record
has. It seems that they came In and
renewed even better than usual on
the first of this year, and are still
coining in that usual way. Robert
Poulson said he felt quite sure he
would bo the first ‘subscriber to get
in and pay this first of the New Year,
but he happened to be just a few
minutes late as 0. J. Reierson of
Cranfills Gap, had called just a short
while before and honored us with hi*
renewal, making the first subscriber
do so in 1928.

Capt. Nils Aanonsen of the Nor-

spent the week-end with O. C. Orbeck.
Tbe captain, whose ship is taking on
20,000 bales of cotton in Houston for
Japan, brought with him his daugh-
ter, Aase, who is making the trip to
Japan with him for the third time.
They were very much pleased with
Clifton and surrounding country and
enjoyed their visit to the fullest ex-
tent The “Chr. Knudsen” is one of
Norway’s largest and most modern
motor ships. She was built in Copen-
hagen, Denmark, about two years ago
at a cost of more than one million
dollars and is' chartered for 5 years
by the Canadian Transport Co. at the
rate of |13,000 per month. The ship
will be loaded this week, the captain
stated, and proceed to Japan, thru
the Panama Canal, taking in 1400
tons of fuel oil at St. Pedro, Cal. Capt.
Aanonsen said the charges on a ship
such as the “Chr. Knudsen” to pass
thru the Panama Canal was three
thousand dollars, and the money must
be paid before the canal locks are
opened. Mr. Orbeck is considering the
invitation of making the trip to Japan
with the ship.

DRY WEATHER PREDICTED
Some of our weather predictors are
forecasting dry weather for June, July
and August, with sufficient rains up
to that time. They tell us that June
is going to be mighty hot, July hot-
ter and August tapering off some-
what. Local farmers who have made
a success growing crops say this por-
tends a good cotton yield next fall.
Of course they are not counting upon
the green bugs and the boll weevils
and if these pests will just stay away
an optimistic feeling is paramount—

PRAISES LONE SCOUTS
By Menloe Jems tad, L. S. S.—N. B.
Route Two, Meridian, Texas
Have you ever realized the various
ways in which the Lone Scouts helped
to win the World’s War.
In 1917 when the United States
issued the Liberty Bonds the Lone
Scouts observed the needs of the sol-
dier boys who were on the battle
front sacrificing their lives for our
country in order to bring freedom
and liberty to America. They loved
the dear old red, white and blue flag
of our country. Their motto was:
“Freedom or Dsath.”
So the Lone Scouts were among the
first to offer their help and assist-
ance by soiling Liberty Bonds to their
parents, relatives and neighbors. I
could name certain Lone Scouts who
sold thousands of dollars worth of
Liberty Bonds to the citisens of our
country. Every Lone Scout was anx-

passed a law that a Scout is eligible
to win the quill by writing to char-
tered amateur publications and farm
magazines, but points won for articles
that are published in newspapers will
count toward the Merit Medals.
I wish every Lone Scout would
