At Burkburnett, Edna Smith was injured when a twister damaged the Burkburnett water plant and leveled several houses. ,Many residents avoided danger as the.whirling winds approached by rushing to cellars. Twisters struck the west and north outskirts of this cffy simultaneously. 'At least six fires were started by lightning during the disturbance. One destroyed a 5,000-barrel crude oil tank at the Falls Refinery. The Missouri-Kansas-Texas roundhouse suffered $10,000 damage from the destructive twisters. Mrs. Fox, a few minutes before the twister struck, led her children to a storm cellar. The yard from which she had called the children was swept clean by the winds.

(/P)—The University of Texas, now has a dinosaur to go with its prized dinosaur tracks, which university scientists say make up the longest set ever discovered. The replica of the dinosaur was erected today in front of Gregory gymnasium. It was bought from J. Willis Stovall, professor of geology in the University of Oklahoma. The reproduction is ten and one-half 'feet high at its head and more than 20 feet long. The dinosaur was placed in such position that it appeared as though jt had just finished making the tracks, which are on a platform. It faces the university campus and its tail extends to the sidewalk. The set of tracks, 67 feet long, was found in Hamilton county. The dinosaur and the tracks will be placed In the state museum when it is erected. «». SCHOOL LAND SOLD OHTLDRESS, June 6 (AP)—Sale of approximately 15,000 acres of Chlldress county school lands in Bailey and Cochran counties to C. R. Woolsey and C. E. Davis of Lubbpck was completed yesterday and County .Attorney Elmer East received $14,600 down payment and notes for a remaining $15,000. The negotiations for the transaction were completed several weeks ago, but litigation involving a former purchaser of the land held up the deal/ -county officials said tered over the huge stage. Painted teepees and totem poles were used in an Indian camp scene. On the backrop, 300 feet long and 13 feet high, was painted a beautiful mesa. Persons who gave day-and-night assistance to Mr. Guill were Pat Jones, electrician In charge of lights, and Melvin Quails; his high school dramatic class who made all costumes and scenery; Ernest Cabe, the narrator; the high school band who furnished the music; Bob McCoy who furnished nine horses for the Cavalcade of Scouting and for El Dorado; Jack Wilson and Scott Green who were in complete charge of ammunition for both the Cavalcade and El Dorado. Mrs. Olive K. Dixon, widow of Billy Dlxon, spoke briefly of the battle between the buffalo hunters and the Indians at Adobe Walls, after Mr. Guill's cast had re-enacted the battle. Mrs. Dixon praised its authenticity. During intermissions, Frankie Lou Keehn danced, the Lions quartet sang, and Judge Newton P. Willis talked. Mrs. Temple Houston, wife of the famous pioneer. Panhandle lawyer, was present, a guest of Mrs. V. E. Fatheree. The Adobe Walls battle showed Hanrahan's saloon, a store, and the wagons were placed exactly as they were at Adobe Walls In the battle of 1874. Mrs. Dixon pointed out that not a detail of the battle was left out, including the blowirfg of a bugle by an Indian scout who had obtained the Instrument in some way. Mr. Guill and his helpers found it necessary to remove the rodeo fence before the performance in order to get a stage that was large enough. Float Chairman Jim Collins announced that the Shell Petroleum company's float which showed oil industry machinery in operation on a miniature 'scale, won the grand prize of $30. It won the $10 first prize in the oil parade and grand prize in the final parade. The Pioneer float on which sat the queen of the old timers and her attendants won first prize on the third day. No prizes were given for the Boy Scout parade. Only first prizes were given any floats except in the grand parade In which the Magnolia float showing members of the Peewees baseball team sitting on a throne won second prize of $20. A buggy 67 years old and brought from Cheyenne, Wyo., won the $10 third prize It was drawn by a horse 25 years old and was driven by Mrs. C. A, Shellabarger. Deficit Is Likely Members of the general committee of the Panhandle Centennial will need several days to assemble reports of all committees, rc?"*.» V.u^-iiients on outstanding accounts, pay federal taxes on amusements, and arrive at a balance on receipts and liabilities. Because of gusty weather and a rain which "washed out" an even- ng's business, a deficit was feared, jut indications yesterday were that such a deficit, if it exists, will be reasonably small.

About S',000 persons saw the pageant, there were 400 pair admissions at the costume ball, and old- timers danced at the gym well beyond midnight. Galted -Horses went through their varied paces for the ;dificatlon of small crowds, but enthusiastic, at Road Runner park. Dr. M. C. Overton's polo pony won in Its class, but other honors went to visitors. Scouts Aid Event The Panhandle's major Centennial observance opened Monday with Governor James V. Allred making a brilliant patriotic address in praise of the builders of Texas. But the first day really belonged to the Boy Scouts, whose parade ind pageant were given by more ihan 500 boys. On the second day, oil men crowded into Pampa, staged a parade, enjoyed a barbecue, and in the evening attended a dance in their honor. Many attended a stag show at La Nora theater. The Road Riin- ners continued their triumphs in baseball. Thursday brought increasing numbers of oldtimers, who were honored on that day and Friday through surh affairs as parades, memorial services, pageant, dancing, and a barbecue. More than a thousand registered, while many others and their relatives spent one or more days in the city. Tlngley Represented ' Amusements included an excellent rodeo managed by H. Otto Studer and Lon Blanscet, with, O. A. Studer of Canadian as secretary, a jurik car race, and for oldtimers, reminiscences of other days. Greetings from New Mexico were brought by Adjutant General Russell C. Charlton, Col. Clyde; E. Ely, and Lieut. Edward Purdy, representatives of Governor Clyde Tingley, who was unavoidably detained. For four days Pampans, Joined by thousands of visitors, took time to think upon the past, honor living and deceased pioneers, gaze upon effects of those oldtimers who opened the west to civilization, see the old days reenacted in pageantry, and hear stories of hardships and amusements of the days since 1875. Plans Are Forming The local program also suggested appreciation for the early explorations of the Spaniards. General Charlton mentioned this period and urged that the Southwest unite in celebrating the 400th anniversary of the coming of the Conquistadores. It was one of the most colorful celebrations in Pampa history. Big hats were more plentiful, gay novelties were popular, and boots were in demand for weeks before the Centennial opened.' • It was Pampa's fourth historical celebration. The first, called Frontier days, attracted wide attention The rodeo and parades were especially spectacular. After a year's uelayi the first of two Pre-Centennial celebrations and pioneer roundups was launched. Texas' celebrated history was recreated in pageantry during the last ' three celebrations No less colorful was the history of the Panhandle used in the pageants "Sustained 'Courage" Early plains history was spectac- lar and heroic. Predominantly, owever, it involved "sustained ourage" in combating great dis- ances, poor markets, erratic wea- her, lack of social and educational pportunities. This courage was madp the theme of this year's cele- ration. R. G. (Dick) Hughes was made eneral chairman of this . year's vent. He was assisted by scores of 'ampans. While previous celebra- lons were sponsored by the Junior hamber of commerce, that of >this ear was managed by a general ommlttee drawn from many organ- zations. Members of the Junior hamber, however, took a leading art. .
