rage Two TCnrrville Mountain Sun, Korrville, Texas, July 24, 1958 "A Kerrvttle tnstttutton For More Than 79 YeanP haocoaoooooooo GUADALUPE VALLEY The Wanderer By IT.XL CUNNINGHAM^ There seems to he a franl i<movement nil the part, of slo'.v letter writers, as the last week of July approarhes. to calch up on tack eorrespondenee hefore August I, when first class K't- ter poslage goes up to I cents, nlong with other increases in •postal i-ates. Von can still put off answering letlers for a •while longer, hut the cost is jroing to he higher, and it mig'.it .In. well to look over overdue correspondence and decide just •which letters ai'e worth >! cents: mid which rate only a .'i-ee'it| stamp. The :)-cent friends had Letter he taken care of immediately, leaving those W'ho<e friendship is worth an addition-| n! penny to lie answered next month or whenever you get nround to it. They might even be flattered that, you valued their friendship highly enough to delay the letter until it eost 4 cents. It's going to he a touchy problem, too, hecausc some of these highly volatile friends •who continually find a chip being knocked off their shotildv, s may resent getting a quick answer under the "-cent rate, deducing (perhaps correctly) that you didn't value their friendship sufficiently to procrastinate a reasonable length of time mid spend an additional penny. This could he a trying time for people with high tempered correspondents and there's a good chance of getting in the dog house any way you turn. Maybe Congress didn't realize 1 all of the implication* when they arbitrarily set August 1 ns the date for postage to go lip, or they might have worked out a more complex system of handling the situation. There is nobody better than a eon- pressman at setting up complex systems. Maybe an affidavit en — mm —— tm ^ m IM the face of the envelope swearing that this letter should have m/^-vMCi been answered under the old MOR IONS postal rates would fill the bill, or mayle Emily Post or Dale(41 A I A f\ l^il Carnegie can figure out some- V A I fill 8 If thing. Meanwhile, guess we'll J?MLf4i/ I/I just try to catch up on our cor-|_ respondents before midnight! July ::i and let the chips fail ^ •where they may.

Can, Tropical FRUIT PUNCH 3 cans $1 Some people say the wild plum, whence comes some of the best jelly under the sun, is a fust-disappearing fruit, but it isn't so with Prentice Sway::o, •who seems to have a green thumb where wild plums are concerned. Prentice brought in a small branch from his wild plum tree this week so loaded •with fruit that they looked jike clusters of overgrown grapes. We're starting negotiations now for an invitation to biscuits and plum iellv at the Sway/.es' this fall. Tt gets amusing but confusing listening to the political ean- paign speeches on the wireless these days and you can't miss them, because they always come on just before the program that you want to hear, and when you tune in a minute or two early, that's just when the speaker is getting eloquent about what old pole cats each and every one of his opponents are, already having covered his own angel-while character. If it sounds disillusioning, though, l>e of good cheer, and wait for the next candidate to come on, and you'll get just exactly the opposite picture of the siUia- 1ion. That's democracy in action. .$. ' City Manager and Mrs. Tx. TT. Weiss, just returned from a Id-day vacation to Yellowstone Vark and intermediate points, boasted something of a record 'Wcdensduy morning —a 10-day vacation trip, and they didn't see a single person they knew. The Fire Department, which v.'e'd much rather see with nothing to do, got a hot one Tuesday night when a midnight fire wrecked the beautiful new home of Mrs. Charlie Peterson on Redbud Lane.
