readers for a year.
Quite a number of football fans
were in Waco last Saturday to see
the big game played by Baylor Uni-
versity and Arkansas University. It
proved to be a real game and the fans
had many thrills.
Quite a few Clifton folks had the
opportunity to test out the heating
qualities of their gas this week when
the norther cooled off the atmosphere
to such a degree that a little fire
made it more comfortable, and those
with their gas heaters set enjoyed
this their first experience in Clifton
of burning the natural gas—and they
admit it is just fine. Come to Clifton.
We are pleased to state that infor-
mation received states that Walter
Turner Jr., who is at the Pasteur In-
stitute at Austin receiving treatment
for injuries received last week when
he was bitten by a cat, is doing nice-
ly, and it is thought that he will suf-
fer no ill effects from the bites in-
flicted. In our mention of this acci-
dent last week we stated that he was
taken to Temple for treatment; this
was the decision of the parents at the
time, we are informed, but later they
deemed It better to place him In the
Institute at Austin for this treat-
ment.—Walnut Springs Hustler.

You, my son,
Have''shown me God,
Your kiss upon my cheek
Has made me feel the gentle touch
Of Him who leads us on.
The memory of your smile, when
Reveals his face
As mellowing years come on apace.
And when you went before.
You left the gates of heaven ajair

first-rate carpenter or mechanic in
civil life. They were all volunteers for
the jobs they held; the navy can’t or-

‘Day after day, for many weeks,
these men went about the most peri-
lous job you can imagine. Their work
took them 140 feet below the surface
of the water. They trawled into the
sunken sub, thru narrow hatches,
trailing their life lines past machin-
ery that could so easily entangle them
and trap them forever; they lay on
their backs, an hour at a time, to bur-
row through the muck of the bottom
beneath the sub’a hull; they dared
death in its most horrible form, time

complaint—and all for a scant three

saying, “Where there’s a

applicable in the matter of saving
money. Those who do not save or who
think they cannot are not fair witn

make certain sacrifices. Their minds
are biased by false pride or egotism.

Upon one's ability to find stich ways',

This is a phase of the matter that
