Write, Robbins "Cattle" will be the central theme of the 1941 State Fair of Texas, which isn't very far away—Oct. 4 to 19. Two national beef cattle shows will be the feature of the $150,000 livestock division. In the National Hereford Show (the third consecutive year it has been held at the State Fair), $30,000 in prizes are offered and awards in the National Aberdeen-Angus Show total $10,000. The Hereford prizes represent ^ the biggest amount ever offered by any fair in a single classification of livestock, it is declared by this columnist's old friend, E. Paul Jones, publicity director. At least 400 head of Aberdeen-Angus arc expected in Dallas for what will be the first national show ever held for the breed of black cattle. But of course cattle are by no means all. When closely questioned, the officials will admit that the 1941 Fair will be the biggest and best yet—and they point to $17,500 in prize money for "the largest farm show ever housed under a single roof;" $7,500 for poultry, besides the hobby show, culinary, textiles, flowers, pigeons and others—the grand total of prizes reaching the breathtaking figure of $150,000.

My stockings are feetless, My trousers are seatless— , Gosh, how I hate the Kaiser! Fleeing from the most severe blizzard that Minnesota had known in years, Sam Buron, highly successful young St. Paul business man, came to Fort Worth last February. When he saw the magnificent Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum, he exclaimed, "What a beautiful building!" And when he looked inside,.he added, "And what a place for an ice hockey rink!" And there you have the story of how Texas is to have a new sport this coming winter, ice hockey, said to be. the fastest game known. For Buron took a 10-year lease on the Coliseum and is spending thousands of dollars to install the machi.ijery for an ice rink—60,000 feet or almost 12 miles of pipe, and other equipment in proportion. The story of Sam Buron's career to date—he's only 31—is a Horati'p Alger success story. Born in,,St. Paul, he sold papers on the street after school; then worked his way through high school by getting up at 3:30 a. m, to carry a newspaper route. AYhen he married at 21, he .was a grain acountant at a salary of $90 a month and at night after 'work he built a home with his own hands. Then he started to build a four-family flat and before he knew it almost, he was in the construction business. And, of course, if you're going to build, it's nice to have a lumber ings when the Texas City Sun form-1 yard, so he acquired one. Then he ally opened its beautiful new home. "Jack Comvay and Clark Gable send you their regards,' writes H. N. Fisch, manager of the Justin Boot & Shoe Co., of Fort Worth, visiting in Hollywood. Conway was director of "Boom Town" and Gable was the hero. Your columnist was technical adviser. A reader quips, "There are no seals in Seary and no geese in Goose Creek; I wonder if there are any gals in Galveston?" * * * • AVord cameos: To be read in tears, a poem must be written in tears—(Horace, Roman poet).

And with all .those business activities, Sam Buron has had time for civic work too. He is the major factor behind the unique Hook 'Em Cows, a fun organiaztion of the men of the South St. Paul stockyards, which has a uniformed drum and bugle corps and a troop of 40 horsemen, both units being much in evidence in all parades. Then Buron had charge of the banquet that was given honoring Governor Stassen when the Minnesota chief executive was acclaimed the outstanding young man of the nation. And only a week or so ago, Buron retired as president of the Minnesota Junior Chamber of Commerce. He has a ready smile, a pleasant voice, a hearty • laugh, tells a story well, is in demand as a speaker and has moved to Texas. That he is a real writers are "going Hollywood," as witness: "Prawns with crisp croutons swimming in piquant penguin sauce." General Pinky Francis, one of the best storytellers in the Capitol City, makes this comment when someone relates an especially ancient joke, "Columbus told that one to the Indians." * * * If you do go to Mexico and if you go by automobile (as this columnist suggests), when you arrive in Mexico City, put the car in a garage and leave it there. The many one-way streets and the swift current of: traffic are likely to prove bewildering and, though you probably won't have a collision, you will not enjoy driving in the business district. Taxicabe are innumerable—and the fare is very low. All you have to do is look as though you want a cab and one will pull up to the curb. But if not, then when you spot a car approaching with a sign, "Libre," signal to the driver. Most of the taxis are new cars and some are of the higher price makes, too". For a short trip, six or eight blocks, the cliarge is only one peso (about 20 cents) and three persons pay no more than one. Longer trips are in proportion. How a man can drive a fine car, 'buy gasoline and make enough at such a rate to pay for the auto and his own living expenses,—well, you figure it out. Conversational English in one easy lesson:.

Oh, yea—you and who else? ..'.'.-. * * * Some fellows can get away with anything. There's one in our neighborhood that does. Morals don't mean a thing to him. He's unmarried, and lives openly with a woman he's crazy about; and doesn't care what the neighbors say o rthink. He has no regard for truth or law. .The duties of the socalled good citizen are just so much bunk as far as [ he's concerned. He doesn't vote, at i ing and entering the game on the fly; and the pace is so terrific that the two wings and the center are unable to play for more than four minutes at a stretch when three fresh men go in and the starters rest a while. Spills are frequent and sometimes fists fly. Popularity of the sport is shown by the fact that the Chicago Blackhawks, in 24 home games last year, drew an attendance of 379,000. Texans, who like football and rodeos, are expected to take to this new sport. .* * , * A newspaper editor writes: It is reported that one of the fastidious newly-married ladies of the town kneads bread with her gloves on. This incident may be somewhat peculiar, but there are others. The editor of this paper heeds bi-ead with his shoes on; he needs bread with his pants on, and unless some of the delinquent subscribers of this old rag of freedom pony up before long, he will need bread without a thing on, and.this town is no Garden of Eden."

So many folks have asked for more information about the ice hockey (which will be played for the. first time in Texas this winter in Fort Worth) that here are a few facts about the sport: It is played of course on ice and the players wear skates; they skim over the ice at a speed of 40 miles an hour; there are no timeouts for substitutions, players leav- ...what's a quartet without harmony?
