ff, MB •* LH. Aufry Aided In Success Story Recently the Courier News re , teived a letter from Dr. Lacy I D. Powell principal of Lillie E.' Suder Elementary School in lonesboro, Ga., describing how (,. H. Autry, the late superin- 'endent of the Burdette School District, helped him receive a lollege education. Dr. Powell described himself is a youngster as the average ion of a tenant farmer. He at- Iributed his success to Autry, laying .the late state represen- ative arranged a number of [actors to help Powell obtain his education. Powell didn't elaborate on the factors but Mrs. Autry, who still lives in Burdette, did. She explained that, Powell graduated from Burdette in the school's first class of 16 stu dents. The big thing the Au try's did for Powell, she said was to take him into their home for about a year while he completed his high school education. , Mrs. Autry said Powell lived with his family on the (Merest farm, where his father farmed part of the land. His family moved away the year before he was to finish school and the mtry's boarded Powell free of charge for the year. "He was a determined boy. He wanted an education very much. Mr. Autry had about ;he same background. He made himself by working and paying 'or his education. 1 guess he saw in Lacy his own life all over again," Mrs. Autry said. *' * •* • • 'When he returned from the army nobody knew he was coming. On the day of his return Mr. Autry walked out to tile car and there .was a man in uniform. It was Lacy. I thought it was sort of coincidental for Mr. Autry to be the first to see him," she said. She said he won a scholar- ship to the University of Arkansas from the 4-H Club where IB was a member. Then several years later she said he returned and spoke to the graduating class. What sort of background did Dr. Powell have? In his.letter he mentioned his brother, Travis L. Powell, who lives in Blytheville and works for the Pepsi- Cola Bottling Co. Travis Powell described his home life as average "as far as working people go". "I don't remember Mississippi too well, we moved from there when I was 4. We had rough times I'm sure, but I don't remember them. Dad ran a sawmill and farmed in Mississippi and when we moved up here he farmed," he said. Dr. Powell said it has been 27 years since he graduated from Burdette and he received his doctorate June 8, from the University of Georgia in a class Th» tarpon is not Important as a food fish. The Conestoga breed of horses was supposedly Flemish stal- ions crossbred with Virginia Powell of 3,100 as compared to the class of 16 in his early days at Burdette. Cashmere Wool Six or more goats are required to provide enough wool to make one cashmere sweater of average size. Cashmere wool is made from the downy fleece which lies under the goat's long hair. An average-sized goat gives only three ounces of this fleece. CLIP and MAIL to •thi* NEWSPAPER aSsSssEsSSKSS^T REQUEST FOR STATEMENT OF EARNINGS By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer Ever wonder why breaktast is usually a quieter meal than dinner? Without devoting a lot of research to the question, one sensible theory seems to be that people eat before rubbing the sleep from their eyes. Some plod to the breakfast table while still half asleep, gulp down a glass of juice, then sit at the table in a semihazy state of mind. The nose gets the action started, picking up the scent, relaying the message to the brain, which deftly leads the hand down the trial to the cup handle. With a cup of coffee downed, the haziness begins to clear. Instead of conversing, however, there is a lumbering effort to get to the front porch, snag the morning paper with one hand, bottoms with the other, and make it back to the table to try .to focus on those little black lines of print. The meal is devoured with gusto and the pinkness returns to the cheeks and reflexes are normal. By then, however, time is running delicately short and a mad dash is made to become wellgroomed. With one hand still fingering a buttonhole and the Other on the door knob, the silence is broken with a, "Goodby, Dear." On the other hand, the dinner hour is usually one of extemporaneous remarks and general boisterousness—A complete contrast to the glum scene only hours earlier. The work day is done, the shoes are exchanged for sandals and the television is switched on for additiunal noise. Having survived another day all are as proud as the angle who caught his first five-pounc bass. The pent quietness and steam of the day is shed with banter, joviality and loud talk. horses.
