Curtis Rinns See Flood Damage in West Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Rinn irtd children can give you a report of what terrible dam- was caused in the flood on :he west coast and especially in one city. They left Decem- 3er 17th via train for Oregon City to visit her parents, the Harry Tuthills. Enronte the mountains had a very heavy snow storm and the train they were on was one of two that crossed the cascades. It took an hour to go each mile following the snow plows. After this very heavy snow, warm rains fell in the mountains and caused the flood. At Oregon City the Clackamas River joins the Willamette River. Predictions were 2' over flood stage but the rivers rose 20' over flood stage — the worst since the 1800's. Twenty-eight bridges were destroyed and thousands of homes and businesses. Curtis said he saw 2 and 3 story homes going down the river. All of the homes of Mrs. Rinn's relatives were high enough to escape damage. Her dad and brothers work for the telephone companie and were working night anr day. One of her brothers die not get home because he was assigned to a crew to built nes for a town which was ompletely washed away. The Rinns returned Janu ary 3rd. The Rockies had sucl warm weather that only i race of snow was seen. It hat ill melted and caused the lei rible flood. !redistricling. state properly tax repeal, extension of tin- I medical care for the aged pro! gram as authorize:! by constitutional amendment voted ion November 3rd, equal rights j for women, gasoline fax i exempt ions for municipal bus 'lines, and enlargement of state wrist and industrial attrac- on programs.

LONG SESSION Most observers feel the 59th session may run through the summer. Certainly it will dominate the 1965 Texas political scene. These results seem likely: Lawmakers will spend a record amount of money, much of it to uplift higher education. Budget proposals ,,f both Governor Connally and the Legislative Budget Board awailed Senators and Representatives at their capilol desks. School teachers will gel the $-15 a month pay raise they are asking. But they will have to figure out who is going to foot the bill. A few more exemptions are ^.jiniV to be removed from the •itate sales tax. .lust enough to balance the budget, but not enough to burl much. Commission on II i g h e r Education will be reorganized along lines recommended by Governor Connally. But the successor agency may not get all the power Connally would like il lo have. Stormy hearings will be held over legalizing horse race belling and sale of liquor by Ihe drink. Bolh proposals may move farther than they ever have before. Maybe all the way. A congressional reapportionment bill eventually will be adopted. However, it's difficult to see any agreement on legislative redislricting. Other key issues which will occupy the 59th Legislalure are statewide water planning and financing, oil and gas tract pooling, mental health and tuberculosis programs, criminal code revision, judicial 2.-170.65 70.1,155.27 50,000.00 Report of Condition of The Farmers State Bank of Brookshire in the State of Texas at the close of business on December 31, 1961 ASSETS Cash, balances with other banks, and cash items in process of collection ....$1,159,110.08 United States Government obligations, direct and guaranteed ,>78,81J.b:> Obligations of States and political subdivisions .iZ,88b.JK Corporate stocks (including none stock of Federal Reserve Bank) 5,000.00 Loans and discounts (including $3,159.13 overdrafts) 1,753,379.08 Bank premises owned $18,000.00, furniture and fixtures $5,000.00 23,000.00 TOTAL ASSETS $3,572,795.7!)
