Lowell cliooscs music as a favorite pastime as well as an ambition. He plays a cornet in Dick McCune's orchestra and plans to have an or- chesira of his own eventually. Pittsburgh, Pa., was the birthplace or red-heads Frances and Ruth Mathieu and June 20, 1928, was the date. They lived in Pennsylvania for six years and since then have lived in Chicago and Corpus Christi. They moved to Pampa when they were 15. They are practically inseparable and have the same interests in clothes, careers and boys. They have taken tap dancing for six years. They are so identical that their own father gets them mixed up. They can switch dates without the boys ever suspecting. They plan to attend the University of Texas and major in Spanish and Portugese so that they can become Pan-American air hostesses. Marcraret and Marjorie Wilson were born on Nov. 26, 1927, in Pampa and have attended, school in Pampa all their lives. They also have mutual interests such as band, playing the clarinet, and clothes. Marjorie tabs collecting records as her favorite hotiby, while Mar- eraret's favorite hobby is sewing. They both enjoy traveling. Marjorie is named after her father's mother and Margaret is named after grandmother, mother and aunt. Margaret plans to. attend Gregg college and Marjorie plans to travel after graduation. Air travel will develop in the same proportion as that of other methods of transportation following other wars, according to Mr. Geoffrey F. Morgan, second in a series of lecturers sponsored by the Rotary Club, who was the guest speaker in assembly Wednesday. Mr. Morgan is manager of the speakers' bureau of Douglas Aircraft corporation and is a writer, educator and lecturer. According to Mr. Morgan, a new method of travel has been developed after each war. Turnpikes came into use after the Revolutionary war; steamboats became the method of travel following the War of 1812; the Mexican war brought into use the canals for transportation and railroads saw their beginning at the ending of the 1 Civil was in 1865. Electric railways brought with them conveniences, as the trains then made trips only twice a day. These cars came into use after the Spanish American war. Automobiles began their rising following World War I. In 1917 there were three million cars and in 1941, 31 million were in use.

At the present time it is possible to fly from Amarillo to the Atlantic Coast in five hours and to the Pacific Coast in three hours, he said. The flight from New York to London would take 12 hours and would cost $375. Mr. Mr. Morgan does not believe that the United States will ever reach the stage where everyone owns a plane. According to him, the airplanes will always be much more expensive and the.cost of running them will be greater than that of. a car. The pictures at which we now look in our books, but which do not exist in our minds, will soon be a reality as we will be able to fly to these places and actually see the places portrayed, Mr. Morgan pointed out. .... flay f&f nual is .. _. are one of tftttt* —^-T- Bodies, tto*r'i8 tfttir flflifc fctiy them fn the Lfttte office. » » i Eleven members of the _.

The President made this statement fully aware that in fulfilling our promise to help Europe's needy, the nation might have to tolerate a few inconveniences. Some radicals exclaim, "They started the war; let them suffer the consequences." Such statements are not only un- American but inhuman as well. Although some people are suffering as a result of their own greed, we should bear in mind Alexander Pope's statement: "To err is human, to forgive divine." Then there are those people who are feeling the'griev- ances of war because it was brought upon them as a necessary evil which they accepted in order to protect their homes and families. When the yoke of oppression was lifted, they looked toward the United States for help. As a Christian nation, we must not fail to answer the war oppressed people's plea for help. —P. K ; flying To Increase The PHS students had his mind in the clouds after hearing Mr. Geoffrey F. Morgan talk on the coming air age Wednesday. The student must be ready to accept the mode of travel by air and bring the pictures in his book history to life. The younger generation of today will be the 500,000 tourists per day by air in 1956 of which Mr. Morgan spoke. The air challenge is coming; so let us step forward, meet it and bring it into our lives. —D. L. LITTLE HARVESTER STAFF , The LITTLE HARVESTER is published weekly by Students of Pampa high school.
