HENRY MAYER
SELLS COCA-
COLA COMPANY
Cameron Business
Men Buy Firm Here;
Employees Remain
Henry W. Mayer, who on
October 1 of this year would
have completed 27 years as
owner and operator of the La
Grange Coca Cola Bottling
company, has completed a
business transaction which
transfers ownership of the en-
terprise to the Coca Cola Bot-
tling company of Cameron,
which is owned and managed
by F. G. Blake and his son,
Gene F Blake.
The transaction went into
effect on April 1.
No personnel changes are
contemplated by the new own-
ers, who will continue to oper-
ate their plant at Cameron
also. Miss Sarah Jane Kochen-
derfer will serve as office man-
ager for the company here and
Roy Gilliam, . veteran em-
ployee, will become produc-
tion superintendent. The new
owners will make inspection
trips to La Grange, however,
do not plan to become resi-
dents here.
Mr. Mayer, for the present,
will enjoy a deserved “vaca-
tion.” The retiring Coca Cola
executive “grew up” in the
business, his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. H. A. Mayer of Yorktown
having owned a bottling plant
when thA La Grange man was
a younster.
After serving for three
years in the U. S. Army in
World War I, Mr. Mayer was
discharged in September, 1919
Flowers In Bloom
Motorists Offered Treat
The wild flowers are bloom-
ing in profusion along the
highways in Texas.
Inspiring displays of color-
ful wild flowers may be seen
along the roadsides of high-
ways for weeks to follow. For
the convenience and enjoy-
ment of motorists, the highway
department office at Yoakum
has outlined wild flower tours
for this section of the state.
For picnickers, there are road-
side parks located along the
suggested routes.
The highway department has
realized that wild flowers on
private propreties become
gradually extinct due to added
grazing and cultivation and,
to prevent the extinction of
the many colorful varieties in
the state, the department, un-
der its program of roadside
improvement, has continually
preserved the flowers.
One suggested wild flower
tour is; U. S. Highway 77,
from La Grange to Schulen-
burg; U. S. Highway 90, from
Schulenburg to Columbus;
State Highway 71, from Co-
lumbus to La Grange. The
round trip is 65 miles.

business had also included

MYSTERY OF
P. 0. BURGLARY
IS NOW SOLVED
Two Men In Fort
Worth Admit They
Blew Up P. O. Safe
With the confession of two
men who were arrested in
Fort Worth, another Fayette
county burglary mystery has
been solved, it was reported
here Saturday by Sheriff T. J.
Flournoy.
The burglary was that of the
Warda postoffice on August
23 when safe-blowers blasted
a safe by means of a battery
and nitro-glycerine and es-
caped with $300 in cash and
$100 in checks. The explosion
created so much dust that the
intruders failed to see a stack
of currency on the floor in
front of the safe and a stack
of silver money.
• Admitting that they had
burglarized the postoffice were
Bobbie Keith Hummel and
Sid Cole, who were arrested
in Fort Worth several days
ago on other charges.
Since burglary of a post-
office is classified as a Federal
offense, the Warda “job” will
cause the two men to face
Federal charges, in addition to
those already facing them In
Fort Worth.
Final Rites Held
For Mrs. Lindemann
Funeral services were held
at the Koenig Funeral Home
chapel here Sunday afternoon
for Mrs. Lydia Lihdemann,
58, who expired at Fayette
Memorial hospital Thursday.
The Rev. L. D. Hardt of In-
Car Plate Sales High
County Buys 8,745 Total
Despite lagging sales at the
start of the season, last-minute
action by Fayette motorists
skyrocketed total vehicular
licenses to 70 Above the final
figure for 1952, it was Import-
ed Saturday afternoon by Gil-
bert H. Eck, tax assessor-col-
lector for Fayette county.
Fayette motorists, up to the
deadline of April 1, had pur-
chased a total of 8,745 license
plates for the varied types of
vehicles in use as compared
with 8,675 for 1952.
Although passenger licenses
showed a drop of 36, com-
mercial licenses disclosed a
gain of 11, and farm licenses
gained 105.
Final statistics for 1953 were:
passenger car licenses, 6,825;
commercial, 695; and farm
trucks, 1,225. For 1952, the
totals were: passenger cars,
6,871; commercial, 684; and
farm trucks, 1,120.
If the trend continues, Fay-
ette county will eventually sell
approximately 10,000 plates for
the year 1953 which would
parallel sales for 1952.

Sheriff Is Busy Man
SEVEN BUGLARIES SOLVED
During the months of Janu-
ary and February there were
eight burglary cases, one fel-
ony theft case and one auto-
mobile theft in the county. Not
any of the cases left us very
much evidence to work on,
however, I was confident that
sooner or later it would be our
day to crow.
I am happy now to say that
we have cleared up all of these
cases with the exception of one
at Carmine, and the thieves
are now in jail awaiting trial.
The one case at Carmine is the
one in which the two televi-
sion sets were stolen and so

thieves, but I believe that
sooner or later we will get a
break and solve this cAse also.
