THE BRAZOS PORT FAC 1 "* WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, i959_ Brazoria Notes • By DOROTHT SMITH j Wade H. Buchanan, Sr. cde- | fcrated Ms 80th birthday Satur- ; day. Twenty-five relatives and friends joined in the cele- ; bration, held'at the home of i Mr. and Mrs. ModeUBuchanan. Main course of the evening meal was chicken pie, a favorite of Buchanan's. Small Tommy Thomas is wearing a' "harness" these days, protecting a broken collar bone which theroughandtumble gentleman incurred during a game of front yard football with a schoolmate. Actually, Wanda said the bone is fractured, but it is broken so far as she is concerned, since Tommy must wear his strange apparel for the next four or five weeks. Kenny Hendricks, son of the Jim Hendricks', is convalescing at home followingsurgeryatthe Texas Children's Hospital in Houston recently. His condition Is consideredtobesatisfactory. Weekend guests of the Ben Vollbaums this week were the R. C.McCullers of Gulf Gate. Mrs. McCuller is Coal's sister. . Mr. and Mrs. T. L. Liles spent the weekend in Little River recently at the home of her parents, the E. G. Shivers. Mr. and Mrs. Shivers returned to Brazoria with the Liles and Will remain for several days. The Jack Easons are enjoying breaking in a new car these days. Jack has almost com- ', pleted the new bedroom he has been building onto the house for his mother-in-law, Mrs. : Lavendusky. Brazoria's newprindpal. Glen 1 Morris, brought up a discussion j at a recent PTA meeting on the' traffic congestion in front of the Fire Barn each morning and evening as .parents bring their first and 'second graders to school. .. . ft was generally agreed that driving down the dead end street west of the primary building posed a hazard both to the children and to the fire department in case of a fire. Mothers take note. . . .it was decided that small frycanbedischarged and picked up much more conveniently on theothersideof the schoolyard, by the gym, and without having such a traffic hazard. Parents are asked to cooperate in this effort to discontinue traffic down the dead end streed in front of the Fire Barn. While on the subject of the fire department, Chief Ben Voll- baum announces that National Fire Prevention Week is from Oct. 4 through Oct. 10. During this week the fire department will hold a visual aid class for youngsters, and one for adults, date of which will be announced later. This particular week should be. a busy .one for Brazorians too.. . .as special projects committee chairman, Frank Travis, Jr, of the clean-up organization is preparing a seven day clean-up schedule which will be distributed to all of us during that week. Watch for it, and plan to cooperate so Brazoria might win national recognition in the clean-up program. Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Payton and family of Clute will soon become brand new Brazorians. They will eventually reside at 526 E. Alabama, .where the writer now lives. Low tax rates and "suburban living" were the selling cards! But really, who would want to live anywhere other than Brazoria? A lot of our local cowboys and cowgals are making with the saddle polish and gentling the pony for the up-coming Brazoria County Trail Ride. Tickets for the ride are being sold by Mrs. J. J. Spillers and Reif fen Ward. It was estimated last year that more Brazorians were in the trek than any other city... .let's keep that record!
