Fayettp CWA Office
Thanks Public For
* Its Co-operation
With the CWA program drawing
to a close, actually passing out of the
picture on March 31, we take this
means of thanking the people of Fay-
ette county for the splendid co-op-
eration given us in the huge under-
taking, and we sincerely trust that
we will have their full co-operation
and assistance in the new program
when it is inaugurated on April 1.
We realize that we have made some
mistake^, which is human. We tried,
however, to learn by our mistakes
and not to make the same error twice.
When on February 17 we received
orders from State Director Adam
Johnson to reduce the number of men
at work in this county, and to remove
from the work rolls all who had other
means of support, or who were en-
gaged in private industry—farming
—or who had some member of their
family engaged in private industry
or on public works, we endeavored to
comply with that request as speedily
as passible, dropping all those who,
under the order, were not eligible to
work. Naturally it took time to get
them all off and some who went off
the work first thought that we were
not fair and impartial with them
Some have gone as far as to accuse
certain individuals who have no con-
nection with CWA of being responsi-
ble for them losing their jobs. Such
criticism was unjust and uncalled for.
We have made diligent efforts to
drop all those who are not eligible to
work under the present order, and we
believe we have succeeded.
If, however, there is anyone on the
rolls who is not entitled to wprk, we
invite those who know of such per-
son or persons, to report to this of-
fice immediately and we will correct
same without delay. It is our aim to
be fair and impartial with everybody,
and the magnitude of the undertak-
ing considered, we believe we have
succeeded fairly well.
Again thanking everyone for their
past co-operatioq, and hoping that we
may. continue to enjoy your good will
and assistance, we are
G. A. Koenig, Administrator.

MRS. LENA KNOLLE DIES
For Lieutenant Governor
Struggling with an admirable cour-
age against the slow but continuous
approach of death, Mrs. Lena Knolle
died at her home in LaGrange, Wed-
nesday morning. Mrs. Knolle was
the widow of the late Dr. Robt.
Knolle, of LaGrange; two brothers,
Max and Julius Schwartz of Schulen-
burg and several nephews and nieces
and her son Dr. I. J. Knolle, of La-
Funeral services will be held at the
family home on Jefferson street,
Thursday afternoon at 3:00 o’clock,
with interment at the new cemetery.
Mrs. Knolle, in failing health for
the past five months, sought relief by
entering a hospital at Kerrville; only
a short stay, the return journey to
home meant obeisance to the inevi-
table. With a patience most wonder-
ful, at times cheerful, frequently not
so; as the days came and went the
visit of the Grim Reaper appeared
more certain. Before the blue of the
night met the gold of the day, Wed-
nesday, she fell asleep.
Friends sympathize with the son
and other relatives; Mrs. Knolle had
lived as a loving mother, not only to
her son, but to the orphaned sons of
her sister, should live. She took the
little sons of her sister, Mrs. Annie
Alexander, under her protecting care,
reared them to manhood and experi-
enced the pleasure of seeing both en-
ter the practice of surgery, proficient
and successful; her son is practicing
dentistry at LaGrange. It may be
said, “She lived for her boys!”
What the realms above may enter-
tain, what happiness there reigns, is
taught to the human race in the Holy
Book, and eternal hopes keep alive
the thought that to those who follow
the teachings of the Creator, are re-
warded. The mystery is unsolved un-
til the pilgrim reaches the mansi<?ns
above. The good and kind deeds per-
formed on earth are deemed to be re-
warded. Those who knew Mrs. Knol-
le and her labor of love, comfort
themselves with the belief that she
will receive eternal peace.
Mrs. Knolle was 54 years of age at
the hour of her death; her husband
died six years ago, aged 54 years.
County politics, like the proverbial
ghost, will rise to the surface soon;
it may be regarded as a bi-annual
spree. No small feature of the cam-
paign is the fact that the* senatorial
race will be interesting.
