CITATION BY PUBLICATION
THE STATE OF TEXAS:
To the Sheriff or any Constable of
Lampasas County, Greeting:
You are hereby commanded to sum-
mon R. M. Moore by making publi-
cation of this Citatioi once in each
week for four successive weeks pre-
vious to the return day hereof, in
some newspaper published in your
County, if there be a newspaper pub-
lished therein, but if not, then in the
nearest County where a newspaper is
published, to appear at the next reg-
ular term of the District Court of
Lampasas County, to be holden at the
Court House thereof, in town of Lam-
pasas, on the 3rd Monday in April
A. D. 1933, the same being the 17th
day of April A. D. 1933, then and
there to answer a petition filed in said
Court on the 16th day of February
A. D. 1933, in a suit, numbered on the
docket of said Court as No. 4278,
wherein Ima Lucile Moore is plaintiff,
and R. M. Moore is. defendant, and
said petition alleging that plaintiff
has been a bona fide inhabitant of
the State of Texas for more than
twelve months and a resident of Lam-
pasas County for more than six
months prior to the filing of this suit,
and that on December 26, 1927 plaint-
iff and defendant were lawfully mar-
ried. That they lived together as
husband and wife until January 2,
1931 when defendant abandoned her
and did not return for five months.
That during said time plantiff was
forced to take care of herself and
was without means of support. That
they continued to live together until
June 15, 1932 when defendant again
abandoned plantiff while they were
visiting in San Antonio and since said
date she has not heard from defend-
ant. That he left her without means
of support in said city with their baby
and she was forced to borrow money
to return home. That during the
time they lived together she was
kind and affectionate to defendant and
fulfilled her marital obligations but
defendant, unmindful of his said
vows, about two years prior to said
separation, began a course of harsh
and cruel treatment toward plaintiff
which continued until said separation.
That defendant was shiftless and
would not work and she was forced
to do manual labor to earn support
for herself and baby. That defend-
ant was harsh and cruel to said baby.
That their said child is a girl about
two years old and named Bobbie
Martin Moore. That defendant is not
a proper person to have the care and
custody of said infant. That said
marriage relations still exist.
Plaintiff prays for judgment dis-
solving said mai'riage relations, for
the care and custody of said child,
and for general relief.
Herein Fail Not, and have you be-
fore said Court, at its aforesaid next
regular term, this writ with your re-
turn thereon, showing how you have
executed the same.
Given under my hand and seal of
said Court, at office in Lampasas this
the 16th day of February A. D. 1933.
S. A. Word, Clerk, District Court,
Lampasas County. (d4t)
Weigh, Count and Measure care-
fully then decide for yourself. My
good friend Roy L. Walker, chief at-
torney for the Santa. Fe in Lampasas
presents the view point of the large
corporations in an article headed
“Sales Tax,” as a good lawyer should
for his clients. For it goes without
saying that corporations have no
souls, and if he did not do his best
for them they would soon dispense
with his services, and he would auto-
matically stop riding on Free Passes
while you and I and the rest of the
common people have to buy a ticket
and if the sales tax should become a
law pay the tax on it.
Mr. Walker is careful not to tell
you that the passage of the Sales Tax
would directly benefit the Santa Fe
and the electric light company and
other large corporations millions of
dollars that they are now paying to
the State of Texas as taxes on their
physical property. . And that every
single cent that the State might col-
lect from said corporations would be
immediately passed on to the con-
sumers who are largely common peo-
ple like you and me.
Now I thoroughly agree with one
nart of Mr. Walker’s article viz: That
the legislature should reduce expens-
es. Here are the figures on some of
According to the figures of the leg-
islative committee studying plans to
secure reductions in government
costs, the following state expenses
have practically doubled since 1920:
Legislative, i920, $390,342.74; 1930,
Development and Conservation of
Natural Resources 1920, $737,220.08;
Public Free Schools 1920, $16,487,-
042.95; 1930, $30,045,373.14.
Higher Education 1920, $3,917,-
198.90; 1930, $8,886,312.72.
Pensions (despite many deaths)
1920, $1,524,448.85; 1930, $2,917,-
Judiciary 1920, $1,463,293.78; 1930,
Regulation of Business and Indus-
try 1920, $447,692.40; 1930, $833,-
An increase of some $23,000,000
right here. Now reduce appropria-
tions back to the 1920 level, add 25%
<-o take care of the increase in popu-
lation since them, so that the per
capita appropriations will remain the
same as in the good old days of 40c
cotton and you’ll be able to pay for
your appropriations out of your pres-
ent income, and have several million
dollars left over. So why a Sales
Tax or any other kind of new tax?
If taxation is increased the big cor-
porations will benefit more than any
other class and the Tax Payers will
have to pay the freight. Wfcfigh,
Count and Measure, don’t take any
one’s word for it, investigate for
yourself and form your own con-
clusions. You are a.tax payer and
you have a vote, so write at once to
your representatives in the legisla-
ture Hon. W. V. Dean, House of Rep-
resentatives, Austin, Texas, and Hon.
John W. Hornsby, Senate Chamber,
A.ustin, Texas, and tell them that you
do > not want a sales tax or any other
kind of tax but that you do want a
reduction in State expenses.

The following resolutions were
adopted by the Sunday school and
B. T. S. convention, held in Lampasas
March 2 and 3. This convention was
composed of delegates from eight
or ten counties in this district:
Your committee on Resolutions sub-
mit the following:
1. We are sincerely thankful for
the many favors and thoughtful con-
siderations of this historic church on
behalf of this convention.
2. We appreciate deeply the fra-
ternal spirit of the other religious
bodies of this community for their
cooperation in entertaining the con-
3. We recognize the fine work of
the program committee, and are
grateful for the contributions made
to the program by the state leaders,
Mr. G. S. Hopkins, and Mr. T. C.
4. We also offer the following res-
olution on prohibition prepared by
Rev. Carson Taylor, field worker for
the united forces of prohibition in
We are unalterably opposed to the
use of alcoholic liquor as a beverage
in any form because it has been shown
by the highest scientific authority to
be a poisonous narcotic drug. Not
being a medicine nor a stimulant but
a devitalized, devitamized, decayed,
death-dealing drug we favor its pro-
hibition as provided for in the 18th
amendment to the United States con-
stitution. Two of its purposes have
been accomplished, viz: The making
of liquor an out law and the reduc-
tion of the consumption of alcoholic
liquor as a beverage. There is in-
disputable evidence that in spite of
all of the talk to the contrary the
prohibition law is enforced as well as
any other and in most cases better.
We favor retaining all national and
state prohibition laws and a doubling
of our efforts at enforcement. We
also favor the submitting of the res-
olution • of tne national congress for
the repeal of the 18th amendment to
the people of Texas to be voted on
when there is nothing else to cloud
the issue and it can be decided on its

these resolutions be given the local

PIERIAN CLUB MEETING
Mrs. H. R. Gaddy was hostess to
a splendid attendance of the club Fri-
day, March 3. “Nicknames” of fam-
ous personages were given in re-
sponse to roll call.
During a business session the nom-
inating .committee submitted and the
club accepted the following group of
officers for next year:

nell; corresponding secretary, Mrs.
J. D. Jackson; treasurer, Mrs. W. H.
Moses; critic and parliamentarian,
Mrs. Tim O’Keefe; press reporter,
Mrs. M. W. Howard.
Mrs. Harry Easters led one of the
year’s most interesting lessons, “Wo-
men in arts and letters,” taking as
her especial topics: Helen Hunt Jack-
son, Louise Alcott and Edith Whar-
Mrs. C. G. Dunklin ably outlined
the topic “Women who have stood
foremost in England’s world of arts
and letters,” and made the subject
doubly impressive with illustrations.
A few of the women mentioned by
Mrs. Dunklin were: the Bronte sis-
ters, Mary Ann Evans, V. Sackville
West, Jane Austen, Katherine Mans-
field, Elizabeth Gaskell and Eliza-
beth Barrett Browning.
Mrs. Dan Culver presented facts
concerning two interesting French
women, Rosa Bonheur and George
Sand. “The Horse Fair” was men-
tioned in detail as outstanding of the
work of Rosa Bonheur.

Will Lampasas win the county
meet? That’s what everyone is won-
dering. We seem to have a very
good chance of winning, for all of our
prospective contestants appear to be
working hard. Our debating team
ought to “wipe up the earth” with the
other schools. You should hear them
debate. You’d think they were born
orators. Watch for the date of the
coming county meet which will be
held here the last of March.

Speaking of books reminds us of
the many advantages offered to stu-
dents through the library. The li-
brarian says that more books are be-
ing read by the students in the last
few weeks than ever before. Nearly
four thousand books are offered for
reading in the public school libraries
here, and they offer great advantages
to the students.

Believe it or not, but one of our
teachers says that more studying is
being done at the present time than
has been done all year. Anyway,
exams are over now and we suppose
the students will enjoy a short, or
maybe long, vacation from their
Nearly everyone in school has had
the flu or a very bad cold and anyone
who hasn’t just isn’t up-to-date. The
weather is turning warmer, however,
and the attendance is much better,
so we suppose the worst is over.
Anyway, let’s hope so.-

Have ybu noticed all the new spring
“doll rags” that our femmes are dis-
playing ? Lacy knit sweaters and
light-colored skirts and blouses seem
to remind us of more pleasant weath-
er. It won’t be long now before we’ll
be thinking of going swimming. May-
be we are behind times, for four of
our classmates broke the ice and took
a plunge a few weeks ago.

If you want to make a hit with our
superintendent, Mr. Charles Wachen-
dorfer, just ask him about the gram-
mar school basement. Many new im-
provements are being made. It’s go-
ing to be very convenient and will
have a good appearance when it is
completed. The school kitchen has
already been moved down into a large

SCIENCE CLUB PLANS
TRIP TO INDIAN BLUFF
After the program Wednesday
morning decided in the Science club
that a trip to Indian Bluff be made
by the members Saturday, March 11.
Wednesday morning’s program con-
sisted of reports made on the various
processes of making steel. Those on
the program were S. L. Cantwell,
John Cunningham, Vernon Lacefield
and Grady McMaster.
Flying above Lampasas, between
1600 and 2000 feet, and traveling
from 100 to 115 miles an hour, many

tioned at the local landing field last
Frankie Berry and Marvin Davis,
Jessie Standard, Annette Roberts,
Lurline Creekmore, Laura Bell Jones,
Lillian Wells, Margaret Wooten, Bon-

been telling how it feels to be all
up in the air!
George Gartman’s coat was taken
for a ride, having been borrowed by
one of the girls, but the owner re-
mained on the field. George says he
is perfectly willing to take an air-
plane ride provided he can keep one
foot on the ground.
Saturday afternoon the parachute
jump furnished excitement for school
students gathered in town to witness
the attempt to land on the square.
Earl Lindsey and Steve Hagan, rid-
ing with a group of their friends in
the classy new V-8 which is the pride
of their life, were first on the scene
after the jump and received a re-
ward for bringing the parachute back
to town. Two gallons of gas for their
beloved jitney made the boys smile
from ear to ear.
Marvin Dickason and Thurman
Burns proved heroes as they removed
the parachute from a tree, and Mar-
vin, intrepid as ever, dared to des-
cend from the tree by means of the
chute. However, he says that some-
thing happened, for all he has to
show for this maiden flight is a
bump on his head.

HISTORY AND ENGLISH NOTE
TAKING RESULT IN CON-
FUSION FOR SOPH
If one should look through Ellen
May Bailey’s notebook, the follow-
ing notes which were taken in his-
tory and English would be seen.
Charlemagne was the great French
king who built the present perfect
tenses of the first five words on page
126 of your history book. An in-
transitive verb is one that lives alone
in a community usually called a
monastery and is never in the pas-
sive voice. The diet of worms took
place in the middle of the first sen-
tence on the second page. In order
to get any good from the study of
history you should take each verb
and tell whether it’s transitive or in-
transitive and learn your dates thor-
oughly (remember that, girls). One
of the most interesting prehistoric
relics of the world is a comma used
to set off a noun in direct address
located in Salisbury, England. The
case of the noun or pronoun is de-
termined by the lake dwellers, peo-
ple who lived in an adverbial clause
during the middle ages and intro-
duced by a subordinate conjunction.
In Egypt the taxes were collected by
diagramming each sentence as de-
scribed in the Papal Bull, and each
man under a taskmaster was requir-
ed to write a theme of from 150 to
