THE BRAZOSPORT FACTS WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 30. 1959 Sweeny Area Facts «y MATTIE LEE JORDAN Here we are back from a most wonderful vacation trip and reluctant to get back into the daily routine of work. We could write this whole column about our trip but will just say that several "firsts" took place for us on our journeys. We zipped off to the West Coast on a 707 Boering Jet, leaving Dallas at 7 p.m. and arriving at International Airport in Los Angeles, at 9 p.m. Of course, with the time difference, we were actually in the air three hours. The trip was smooth as silk and we hope to do it again someday. We encountered beautiful weather, no higher than 72 degrees, no smog, and all in all, just what we might have ordered. But expect the Weather Man was favoring a more distinguished guest than ourself, none other fhan Mr. K himself, and I had the dubious honor of witnessing his arival in Los Angeles. But enough has been said on that subject. Labor Day weekend, our husband and son, Joe, with whom we visited, joined a deep sea fishing party and brought back five 15-pound tuna .which set the right tempo for the two weeks that followed. Our first visit to the Mojava Desert proved Interesting. The beautiful country side, before we reached the desert, was something to see. And it is hard to imagine that traveling just a little over 80 miles distance could bring such a different scene and climate. However, we hit it just right there, too, climate-wise, for their first "cool spell" moved in, the heat wasn't bad during the day and we slept under blankets at night. At Edwards Air Force Base, we had our first real visit with our daughter-in-law and son, •nd their four months-old daughter, Charlene. The following weekend our hosts carried us to Las Vegas. Such descriptive words as glamorous, glittering, fabulous and wicked could be used when speaking of this Nevada town. Of course, we aren't very worldly-wise, nor have we traveled much outside of Texas, but we^feel $ure there in not another "place" in the world like it. • A comparatively quiet and ileepy town during the day, at night, and I do mean all night, .the town is one beehive of activity. 'Spect we saw more movie stars and TV personalities than we will see the rest of our lifetime put together. Another first — we actually heard Ed Sullivan laugh. He was seated next to our table «t dinner at Luigi's and to my surprise a very friendly and down-to-earth kind of fellow. Back on the desert we saw the X-15 take off on its successful nine-mile trip in the wild-blue yonder, and jumped every time the planes from Edwards made a sonic boom, which seemed about every 15 minutes during the day. Just hope Mr. K was as im• pressed with these beautiful United States as we were with ithe new country we were privileged to visit on our trip. Now, back to happenings mround Sweeny which has made quite a few changes while we were away. Foundations are being laid for a new building that wil' , house Meadors Grocery—Paul Beasch sold out his Phillip's 66 Station to Leo Finley—Shorty Long expects to move his Service Station to a new location this week—And, we hear that Humble Company will open i station at Long's present location—Woodroe Friday is remodeling his Main Street building for office space for a new Doctor scheduled to move here in the immediate future— and the addition to the Telephone company's office is completed. Also, the township has grown by five new citizens who made their arrival during the month And, we might add they come In All Sizes. One newcommer weighed a mere three pounds, and another, tipped the scales' at 12 pounds even. Arriving on Sept. 4th was the -on of Mr. and Mrs. J. c Bailey. Marc Andrew is his name and he weighed eight pounds, three ounces upon arrival in a Bay City hospital. Mrs. Bailey plans to join her husband in England in Decem_ her where the young man wil! meet his fathpr f n >- tup first time. .1V.-P3 Randall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gadrlv ws j born in the Angleton Clinic on Sent. 8th, His weight ,v hirth was fivp oounds. 11 ounces.
