T he V ernon D aily R ec A great deal of publicity i.i being given to a law suit in Dallas over a question whether a church tabernacle con be erected in a certain district wiihout violating the city building code or interfering with rights owners of adjacent property. An injunction was granted prohibiting the erection of the tabernacle, pending a hearing of the case on its merits. It seems that the terms of thr injunction were violated and the pastor of the congregation was placed in jaijf for contempt of court. * * * The case is of interest in Vernon by reason of the fact that the judge of the court which granted the injunction and later ordered the pastor placed in jail is a former Vernon man, Hon. Towne Young. Before becoming a lawyer and moving to Dallas, Judge Young was a reporter on this very newspaper. He is favorably remembered by many older re si dents Vernon. He moved about seventeen years ago. As to the merits of the case before Judge Young, it would be presumptuous to express an opinion. It may be stated as a general proposition, however, that it ill becomes a minister or a church, as it does a citizen who professes to be law-abiding, to defy the courts. Courts make mistakes it is true, but they represent the law and as such their edicts should be respected until set aside through legal processes vouchsafed to every citizen. * # * If Judge Young had not taken up the law, H. T. might never have be come a citizen of Vernon because he succeeded to the job as reporter on The Weekly Record which Judge Young vacated when he took up the study of law at the State University. Just imagine what the course of events might have been if Judge Young had elected to remain a newspaper man! He might now be writing copy for a column like this, but most likely a better one, and H, T. might have been the judge of a court or something. A* & No doubt it will be observed by regular reader of this column that mention was made herein of the early launching of a campaign f><r rain. The announcement was made Saturday, and Saturday night a splendid tain visited Wilbarger County. Thei. is nothing like results. it. Afc ik I.ynn W. Landrum, accompanied by his wife, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. I». \V. May of this city, visited over Sunday in Vernon. Mr. Landrum is an editorial writer on the Pullas News and is taking a brief vacation. He was formerly on the editorial staff of The Record in 1919 and 1020. Mr. Landrum hud not visited Vernon in some five years, although Dallas is only about a six¡.our drive by automobile from this city. He was astounded at the progress of Vernon, as anybody would be who has not been here in five years. When a Dallasite admit.- a town looks good you may conclude that it does. Dallas is a gretil and proud city and Dailasites are usually slow to admit that other cities have anything much of interest. # # # Work on the main structure of the Pease River bridge should be finished this week. Next it will be necessary to pour the concrete paving on the long approach to the bridge fron the south side of the river. Probably by September or even earlier the bridge will be opened to traffic. This announcement is made for the bene fit of the subscriber wh< about a year ago addressed an inquiry to thi- column wanting to know when the new bridge would be completed. Give II. T. a little time and he can answer most any question. A customer put another question to this column, but as indicated above, it can’t be an wered offhand. I his questioner wants to know when th- School Board is going to tart work or, the new ward school building. It was generally believed that the new building would be ready by the time school opens in September, but that hope seems destined to disappointment. As to when the work w 11 b* started, H. T. will keep a close watch on events and let the customer know just as soon as he finds out some thing. THREE PERMITS ARE GRANTED THIS MORNING LEASED WIRE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS VOL.
