More than 4CO children were keeping a date with Santa Glaus in the friendly aUnospheiv of a real home with a "mother" and :i "dad" to share the fun with ihein, And two of the happiest orphans of ihem all were little Wanda Kilgore, 5. and Charley GoocLson, 4. because they spent the entire Christmas week in the governor's mansion in Austin. The result of the unofficial "orphans' week" was amazing. Many cf the families who had invited a boy or girl out for the holidays indicated they would like to "adopt them permanently. Hundreds of others immediately wrote and wired the governor that the practice must be repeated. So through the maze of holidays that clutter the calendar, orphans' week has crowded its 'way and it's a safe bee that it will become iiu annual custom. Interest from outside the state indicates that the idea may spread across the nation. Surprised a bit at the instantaneous aj)(l, hearty response, Texas' governor passes along the credit to the "peace-loving -and kindhearted people or'the 1 - state?' *~* (ARK.) roURfKR NEWS In a Brown Study—By the Blur Sea Nati\ ^residential . . . and "holiday children/' » T ?,°,, DanieI family • • • wilh . . . lat, Molly and Mike O'DanieJ are in the back row.

African Explorer Visits High School Jim Wilson, African explorer and ihe first white man ever to cross that continent on a motorcycls, spoke Monday in assembly on "Three-wheeling Through Africa." With his companion in the Flood-Wilson Expedition, Mr. Wilson completed the previously impossible task of traveling through r jungles and desert from the coast of the continent to Eritrea, on the eastern coast. He related that once while cut- ling vines and jungle growth, he unknowingly grabbed a large cobra, which slipped out cf his hands and colled nearby ready to strike at him. Quickly he flung his machete at the snake, cutting it in about three parts, "from which." he admitted, "it never recovered."
