RISER Bob Dufour and this writer motored to Shreveport last week to attend the reception at the Shreveport Municipal Airport, of DAV National Commander Bijll! Frlb- ley, who is also speaker pro tem of the House of Representatives of the state of Kansas. Among the Shreveport dignitaries attending were Mayor Clyde E. Fant of Shreveport, Mayor Jake W. Cameron of Bossier City, and William K. Hinds, manager of the Vete- irans Administration Hospital in Shreveport. TV cameramen were there covering this event in detail. DAV National Commander Fribley made the following statement to newsmen at the airport, "The disabled veterans of America were honored, dined, and patted on the back right after the end of World War II, but today he is a 'forgotten man' the DAV is one organization that is 'dedicated to do something about this." He further stated, "I will take under serious consideration the re-opening of the DAV service office at the V.A. Hospital here in Shreveport. I will take the Shreveport situation up with the national claims officer in Cincinnati before a decision can be made; however, I feel confident we will ope'n up again." This was quite an interesting trip, and Bob Dufour is a nice fellow to make a trip of this kind with. Jackson Parish is going forward with their mile of Riser Road, We have waited a long time for this improvement, and we all appreciate what Lincoln Parish has clone and what Jackson Parish is now doing. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Springer and son Johnny from Arcadia were among those visiting Mr, Jack Riser last Sunday. Richard and Johnny brought Mr. Riser a few choice steaks from a 25-pound cat fish that they caught at Corney Lake. I have not noticed Jeff Lain down fishing in my pond lately, so I know from that the big bass are not biting; however, I have noticed Mr. John M- Armstrong, Sr. down trying his luck, but I can't ever find out whether he catches anything or not! Mrs. Dotty Ladner has some real pretty flowers that she is real proud of, and she likes for her friends to stop by and take a look at them when they are out riding on Riser Road. This weather has been real nice for those that have hay to put away in the barns for the cold weather next winter, but now that all the folks have their hay in we would like to have a good rain for the grass and flowers and gardens. Of interest to the dairymen down in the Riser Community is the purchase of the Pine Ridge Dairy owned by the Tarbuttons, by the Moncrief boys of Meadogold Dairies. The Moncrief boys were reared in the Riser Community and we are real proud of the success they have all made in life. We all wish them turther success in this ex- teo<Je4 venture, Graduating cunv'l&Ude from Ruston was Ronald W'. fcllerbe and Anne Oakes Tulen, Ellerbc also graduated with departmental honors in chemical engineering.

THE LINCOLN FAMILY Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks were married by a Methodist minister by the name of Jesse Head, but shortly afterwards they united with one of the churches of Litiking-Locust, association of Regular Baptist in Kentucky. When Nancy Lincoln died in Indiana, Abraham, by his own efforts, had their Kentucky pastor, Edler David Elkins, to come to their wilderness home and preacher his mother's funeral. After Thomas Lincoln married Sally Bush Johnson he sent back to his Kentucky church for his letter of fellowship, and as the minutes on June 1, 1823 show, he united with the Pigeon Creek church by letter and his wife by experience. From that date until they moved to Illinois in 1830 their names appear frequently in the minutes of the church. Thomas being one of the pillars of the church acting as moderator on church committees to investigate the conduct of the brethren and sisters and a messenger to association bearing the letter of Pigeon Creek to her sister churches.
