No. 167-Q Texas Club Womtn To Conduct Drive For Safe Holiday WORTHAM, June 21— (SPL)— Clubs of 3rd District were invited to joj in a nationwide life-saving project based on a chain of telephone calls which will be conducted by the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs June 29-30. Mrs. W. F. Eckhardt of Wortham. 3rd district president of the Texas Federation, urged that all clubwomen join in this concentrated special event in the federation's continuing ' traffic .safety program. Aim of the 'phone call chain is to evoke a special spirit of safe conduct and caution in the motoring public over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. She suggests that each member (if a federated club make four telephone calls to friends and neighbors, appealing for driving with care over the holiday weekend. Each of the four recipients will be asked to call four othrr friends in turn and pass on the message, including the request that each call one additional person. "We can thus reach- millions over the country," Mrs. Eckhardt pointed out. "If our reminder .saves even one life, it is well worth it." Last July 4th, 348 people were killed, 33 .of them in Texas, on that one day. The telephone appeal to drive with care is part of a statewide effort to prevent needless slaughter this year on the highways. Co-opcratng in the stress on safety are the Texas Safety Association and the Texas Department of Public Safety, as well as the 1200 clubs of the Texas Federation. Dinner Party Given For H.

MANNERS Moke Friends It is embarrassing to a wife to have her husband jump to perform small courtesies for other women that he never thinks of doing for her. A real gentleman is every bit as courteous to his wife as he is to other women. * * * '. •:.! When you are uriaule to speak to the person you have telephoned and are asked by the person answering to leave a message, it is courteous to do so. Even if you can't leave a telephone number, at least say, "This is J. S. I'll call back later." When you refuse to leave any kind of message — even your name—you are being rude to the person' who is trying to be of service. the EASY payment way Check These Low PAYMENTS improve your HOME If Amount of Purchase is ... . 1200.00 MOO.OO MOO.OO MOO.OO $1000.00 Lewest Monthly Payment b 16.31 112.71 • „ f 2S.M I31.M . . . and remember NO DOWN PAYMENT We'll take ovjr the. details . . . -You'll enjoy the result*.
