"A five - gallon can of kerosene sold for about 10 cents and bacon was about six or eight cents-a- pound. Dad would make a trip to town (Houston) twice a year to buy clothes. In spring he would buy our summer clothes and in the fall, our winter ones." Sweet potatoes, oats, peas, hay and sugar cane were big items grown around Cedar Bayou, according to the Scotts. "Cane squeezing day was a big event around here. Generally, there was a mill that would move around from place to place and squeeze the cane. Boy, we used to tike to dip into that juice! "When they cooked it, all of us kids hoped the grown-ups would over-cook it because then it would turn into rock candy and we would have lots of it," Mrs. Scott said. "Another great and grand old day was when everybody gathered to butcher hogs," the Scotts recall. "My mother . . . and later myself . . . cooked the meat patties by the hundred. We would pack them down in an old crock and pour the grease over it. It would seal and preserve it," Mrs. Scott said. I In new sriron splendor... The most nidim-ocr! HELD OVER!

"But all you had to do was soak it and you Imd some good eating." Scott said the Cedar Bayou boats would haul rice, bricks, rabbits and other Hems down stream where larger boats and barges waited to take on the transferred goods. He farmed until 1939 and then went to work for the Harris County Road Department, Precinct 2. After 19 years with the department, Scott retired in 1958. Mrs. Scott's father was a famous Texas poet, John Peter Sjolander. Sjolander was known as "The Sage of Cedar Bayou" and a Texas Historical Marker has been erected in front of the ScoU home. The marker was dedicated in official ceremonies Jan. 27. Scott remembers two tornadoes that hit the a^-ea where they live. One was last November and the other was back in 1921. "It was really an experience," Scott said referring to the one in 1921. "Mrs, Scott wasn't home . . . sickness had taken her elsewhere. But I was there ... I was inside when it hit. The house started moving and I went to the door to jump out ... everything was spinning and boards and other stuff was flying all around. The house was lifted off the clocks and twisted like an orange peeling. And my pride and joy, my Modei-T Ford, was under a broken down shed . . . messed up good," Scott said. "We've had a good life and a lappy one. Our whole life is here. Our son lives next door and we have three grandchildren. And there's one thing you can say for sure," Scott added. "We sure haven't moved around much." Average weight of a Brown Swiss cow is 1,400 pounds.

Ways and Means chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., cautioned newsmen not to expect a radical tax code revision this year. But he added if the hearings disclose particular areas in need of change, the committee might go ahead with legislation on these without waiting for a full overhaul. Among other subjects to be studied are a number of particu uur interest to average taxpayers. One is the possibility of broadening the standard deduction, now limited to 10 per cent of income with a ceiling of $1,000 deducted, so that more taxpayers would be spared the chore of itemizing and justifying deduc tions. Another is the complaint of single persons that they are discriminated against, because married couples and other heads of households enjoy income-splitting advantages. Another tax reform recommendation came Wednesday from a private, nonprofit research organization of business and professional leaders. The influential Committee for Economic Development said legislation is needed to give the President power to raise or lower taxes by up to 10 per cent, subject to congressional veto. The CED said this would al low the president a flexible, faster-acting tax mechanism than now available .to combat inflation and recessions.

Baytown Accepts Bid To Aid Cancer Battle Dr. Charles George, president of the Baytown Branch of the American Cancer Society announced Wednesday that the ACS Crusaders in Baytown and Highlands have accepted Darrell Royal's challenge to "concentrate on methods to speed the victory over cancer."

Guarino Wednesday dismissed a negligent homicide charge against Mrs. Sadie Stein Blum, of Baytown, who was charged in the traffic death of Nils Edwin Dennis Bergh, 29, last May 30. Bergh was struck on his motorcycle by a car driven by Mrs. Blum when she was turning into her driveway at 501 N. Pruett.

Judge Guarino dismissed the branch said the mond for a half-day session o learn what can be done locally to accelerate the society's cancer control programs. j. N. Chatfield, committee chairman, meeting will kick off with a speech to explain how the ACS is working to improve the technology, techniques and treatment to control cancer now. The meeting is sponsored by ACS Districts which includes all counties adjacent but not including Harris County. Gene Braudrick, editorialist for KHOU-TV, Channel 11, will be in charge. The goal of the 1969 Texas Crusade is set at $2,100,000. The goal roughly represents a dollar for every Texan now living who will have cancer, unless current trends are revised. "This will be the third year the ACS will be asking for people to complete a confidential health survey during the house-to-house drive," Chatfield said. "The information we obtain from this survey will be compared to last year's results to determine what new educational measures are necessary to help people better understand the nature of cancer and the value of early diagnosis and treatment," Chatfield said. referred to as charge on motion of Prosecutor I of the World."
