Units By JOHN HOLT Everything is as lively as usual in the C. C. C. Camp. Work is going on about the usual rate of speed.

We have finished a few projects but there are still quite a few to be started yet. We are also working on some projects that will last several months. A number of men are still working around the camp and they are getting it in tip-top shape. In fact it -will be a real modern home if they continue to make improvements. We received news from President Roosevelt this week stating that the Reforestation work continue at full force for another six months, after this term is over.

We are sure that a lot of the toys will re-enlist for another six months as soon as this term ends. llh We had quite a hit of excitement Kula Saturday afternoon. There wn.s a tt-rrific thunder storm anil lightning struck a tret-, about six feet from one of the tents. One of the boys was knocked unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital at Sulphur and no report as to his condition has been gtf-vcn.

"Gold Dinners of 19SU" Is The Bite AUruction It is claimed that no picture sinr.e the advent of Sound and Talking picture has created the sensation accorded "Gold Diggers of 19153." This dazzling musical ixtravaganza surpasses all records for elaborateness a scenic achievement in settings. Thirteen stars appear in the cast of hundreds of players.

Three hundred lieautiful girls, selected from five thousand applicants appear in the dazzling chorus ensembles. Many stars and players from the cast of 'M2rul Street" will he seen in "Gold Diggers." And many faces will surround them. The picture is scheduled for opening with Saturday night's preview, running through Sunday and Monday. Safunlay Is Another Bargain 10c To All On Saturday proceeding the run of "Gold Diggers of 1033," is another big treat. It is in the way of another bargain day.

The price both matinee and night through Saturday will be lOc. Such a bargain was extended on Saturday of last week, and it was such a tre- mendous success than Manager Boaner announced another special lOc day for next Saturday. The feature picture is "Some Where In Sonora," featuring John. Wayne and his famous horse, Duke. The second chapter of "Phantom of the Air" and a cartoon comedy completes the bill.

and Friday Laugh Days The picture which opens at the Rita today and runs through. Friday, is "The Nuisance," starring that laugh provoking comedian, Lee Tracy. The picture contains many thrills, since part of Lee's main duties are to arrange accidents or other acts of misdemeanor to keep his business collecting fees moving along swiftly. His side-line however, is love, and while he is right in the midst of his racket of accidents made to order, a lovely blond makes him over. Through it all laugh after laugh predominates.

ELHS FUNERAL HOME Day or Night Phone 480 Private history of Texas is a romantic story of courage and thrilling adventure. The early settlers had first to make Texas a free land for free men. Then came the prolonged struggle against the virgin wilderness, to convert Texas into the modern and glorious state she is today. But the path of progress was not always strewn with roses.

Economic reactions of the past interrupted but could not retard the determined advance of a determined people. So, the history of Texas is also a tale of strife agaipst odds, dogged persistence and rigid self-discipline. Her people have always clung together in a community of spirit, so the world acknowledges a loose- knit fraternity among formal membership, but irresistible when aroused. Today, though the strife has been transferred from military to economic fronts, the spirit of Texas citizenship will rise again in defense of an institution which is as much a part of Texas history as Sam Houston, Davy Crockett or James That institution is the Missouri-Kansas- Texas Lines. The same independence and freedom from outside domination that is bora in the blood of every Texan is also an inheritance of the That independence and that freedom is now threatened by essure from without and the pioneer- Kary, which played so rich a port in the conquering of the wilderness and making Texas the home land it is, comes directly to her people for support.

The Katy has been self-sustaining and self-supporting throughout the last four disheartening years. With heroic determination and supreme effort, the Kary has fought to avoid seeking help from any quarter. Now, with victory in sight economic skies final effort must be put forth. One course would be to appeal to the Government of the United States for money from the public treasury, and so increase the national burden. The other way is to appeal to the men and women of Texas.

This is done here, directly and straightforwardly, without hesitation, apology or sacrifice of pride. For, has not the Katy contributed its full share to the ionecring and developing of this great ind, and does it not stand today a Texas institution devoted to the service and welfare of Texas people?

The resulting increase in revenue will enable the Katy to remain self-supporting independent, free from the need for outside capital which charges as its price the sacrifice of identity and freedom, which this generation of Texans holds as near dear as their fathers before them; Never in the past has Texas refused to rise in defense of her native and traditional institutions.
