And then to till his lonely life,
God mack Eve to take her
’A'hen Adam - inned, because ot
Tvvas by her charms he was be-
Ko Adam toiled to pay his price
And Eve gave birth to child.
Because Eve sinned, it seems to
She gave the world its greatest
For who but woman could e’er be
The mother of a baby boy’
Life has its ups and. we know,
And heartbreaks to live thru;
But life's worthwhile when we
Reward for what we've strived
Tlu re no greater joy on earth
That's worth the price we pay,
The first small cry of our first
So precious, small and dear1
A woman’s life scorns almost bare
If she has never known
The boundless joys that life can
To help her child to walk alone.
To watch her grow in form and
T > build a life the world will
To make this earth a better place.
No room for hate, or war, nr
woman’s filled her place in
If she can truly say
She's made her home a happy

for a time-
Schui nburg’s consistent win-
ning of state Intel-cholastie Lea-
gue trophies is building a jinx
that Cla s B high schools find
hard l- over onto.
And all because of the versa-
tility of one man.
Behind the annual victories is
a young University of Texas
journalism graduate who has a
ciuiet passion for teaching and
I E. Clark is aiming at two
more state trophies when the
Texas Interscholastic League
meets here this week. Schulen-
burg’s one-act play, “Mooncalf
Mugford”, is in the finals, and
the school's journalism entrant,
Bernice Winkler, is also a final-
In "M'lor.calf Mugford" is Elsie
Haas, A-ho is acting in her third
one-act pla\ before state final*
judges. Miss Haas has been named
on the all-tar cast for two1 years.
She is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Joe F Haas, Route 1, Sehu-
Miss Winkler faces a difficult
precedent. Last year Mildred
Klesel of Schulenburg won the
state journalism contest. Now a
freshman in the University, Mint
Klesel was awarded the first
Theta Sigma Phi schollit hip. It
\.ill be awarded annually to a
freshman woman journalist on
the basis of character, ol need
and scholastic and journalistic
records in high scneol.
Mis: Haas plans to attend the
Univerity next year. Besides be-
ing in two all-star one-act play
casts, she is editor of The Short-
horn. school newspaper.
In 104(1 The* Shorthorn won
t h e Interscholastic League’s
award of distinguished merit.
One of Clark’u students also
won first place in typing in the
1948 meet. His wife—also a Schu-
lenburg teacher, coached a sec-
ond place* winner in declamation
Clark has a five-course teach-
ing load, first and second year
typing, shorthamd, journalism and
senior English.—Austin States-
C’ard of Thanks
Words cannot express my
thanks and appreciation to the
many kind friends and wonderful
neighbors for the solicitous
thoughts, lovely cards and beau-
tiful flowers sent to me at the
Clinic and since I arrived home.

CountMufflci'i-s got n notice from
the irovJnmenr not long ago, ask-
ing thel to change the name of
Mild Luge. Seems it’s a pond, not a
Uike, by government standards.
Because it lies entirely Inside
our town limits, we asked to do tho
name-changing ourselves. Figured
we’d think up » brnnd-new name.
Mud Lake’s really not very muddy
—sort of pretty, in fact.
County people said go ahead, so
We held a Town Meeting. Everyone
suggested something. Windy Tay-
lor thought “Taylor Pond” would
be nice, because bis place borders
it—for about 30 feet! But wa fir
ally decided to call it “Turtl
Pond” in honor of the real ownerr
From where I sit, naming th
pond wasn’t the most importan
thing in the world—hut the wny w
did it unit. Everyone offered h
•pinion and then the majority vot
decided it. That’s the way it sho-
ko—whether it concerns namln
pond, or having the right to enj
a friendly glass of beer or ale—i
and when we choose.

Thrifty Gulf South housewives rely more and more on low-
cost natural gas. Many started with gas cooking, then gas
water heating. Today, thousands know the economy and
convenience of gas refrigerators, gas-fueled clothes driers
and adequate, automatic natural gas heating. These
women are reaping dividends in time and money saved,
while clean, efficient natural gas does the heavy work.
Natural Gas Service Is Vital
The gas industry is an important factor in the prosperity of
the Gulf South. Through service to industry and commerce,
it helps create payrolls that are the lifeblood of our econ-
omy. Gas company taxes help maintain state and local
governments, build roads and support schools and other
public institutions. Yes, if you live in the Gulf South, you
benefit from natural gas.
