One wall of a supermarket and a service station wall were ail that remained standing in the center. Prisoners from the Jackson and Hinds County jails worked alongside teen-agers, searching for bodies and survivors in the rubble. Bulldozers and construction equipment, owned by the county, were rushed to the area and used to shove aside the tangled debris. W. W. Ragan, State Civfl Defense director, said damage to the shopping center "is in excess of a million dollars." A power substation in southwest Jackson was demolished. Much of the city was temporarily thrown into darkness and the lights were out for seven hours in the central business section. Traffic lights were out because of the power failure and rush hour traffic became snarled. Some people became hysterical. Boy Scouts were pressed into service to help direct traffic, freeing policemen for rescue work. Looting was reported in some damaged areas and also in some sections without lights, but police said "it was kept to a minimum and stopped about as quick as it began." Acting Gov.

If a library is handy, he uses it. If not, he'll either drive a long distance and gripe, or he'll forget the whole thing. lhanks to some far-sighted people, the Clear Lake area has a library, the Theodore C. Freeman Memorial Library, named for the astronaut who lost his life in an air crash. The library got its start in September, 1964, in the here of Mrs. Betty Ulrich in Clear Lake City. To make the books available to the public, she asked for space in the Clear Lake City Recreation Center, and was given a room. But the fast-growing library soon outgrew that room and Priends- wood Development Company donated its sales office building. The building was moved, to Irs present location between the Hec Center- and Clear Lake Country Club last summer, renovated and there it now sits — often hurnrring with the activities of busy school students. It is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily except Sunday and from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday. But this brief history hardly tells the story of the Freeman Memorial Library Hundreds, perhaps thousands of hours of work have gone into making it a usable facility. To get It started required card files, marking books, cataloging and determining the needs. And there were the planning sessions in 1368 for Fritz Lanham, Mrs.i 3:-45 a - m - Wednesday at Lamar. Silas Moore, E. H. Oliver, Pres-ip° ffee vvi! l be served to Hie vis- ton Pendergrass and J. C. Sheffield. Members whose terms expire in 1969 are Bruce Causey, Steve Dedman, Lan Williams, Echols and Edwards. ' The term expired this year for the outgoing president. Dr. Max Mosesrnan. Others whose terms expired are W. C. Jackson, outgoing vice president, and Leonard Hart, Sam Bramlett and Herbert V. Herbert. The meeting Thursday night was held at Citizens National Bank. Attending were Brasfield, Messiah, Vaught, Lanham, Sheffield, Causey, Dedman, Echols, Edwards, Williams, Dr. Mqses- man and Herbert.

And, of course, each month, the library's board of trustees meets to conduct the library's business. » The Freeman Memorial Library is, In. every respect, a corrirunity project. There have been many donations, large and small. Not all of the donations havs been money. Many people have aona~ec books. The Space City Rotary Club planted the library's yard. That, as any suburban husband can tell you, Is hard work. Mrs. Faith Freeman Ettrs is:e ana aa ncm— ter, Faithie, donated furniture. Dwight McDonald donated a landscape plan. The W. D. Kaaen Company poured sidewalks and the Clear Lake Jayeees furnished a desk. These are just a few of the many expressions of confidence in the library. Like any new institution, the library has had its fair share of ups and downs. The library isn't big enough, yet, but fortunately it hasn't stopped growing. To meet the surging demands on its resources, it will need additional support. Mrs. Ulrieh 3 the librarian, points out that the library needs more reference materials, children's books and un- to- date adult non- fiction, Clear Lake area residents will have an opportunity to help this month when a book drive is launched. •e VJhatever its present shortcomings the Freeman Memorial Library is a smashing success for two reasons. Q the area has a library. Two, it's o: more shining example of the get-up—aid- go exhibited by Clear Lake area people getting together to do a job. Effective this month, Baypcrt Letter will appear every other week' instead of each week. This change is being made to facilitate a more concise commentary on the area's activities. So — instead of next week, same tine, same paper, the next Bayport Letter will appear two weeks from today. March 4, 1966 BAYPORT P. 0. Box 791 La Porte, Texas 77571
