PAGE SIX THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Pam&a, total THURSDAY EVENING?, JUNE if, 198B FDR 'LIKES TO THINK' OF DEAF SMITH DESTROYING BRIDGE imu is ID IN TILK FATHER ONCE VISITED SAM HOUSTON AT WASHINGTON Minute By Minute At Station KPDN HOUSTON, June 11, W)— Tlie text of President Roosevelt's address at San .Tacinlo battlefield today: There are but few spots in the United States which have witnessed events In significance to that which took place at San Jacinto. Here n century ago was a great frontier of our civilization. On the twenty-first day of April, 183G. General Houston and the small body of less than eight hundred men under his command held In large measure in their keeping the future of our country as it is constituted today. The patriots whose memories we are honoring today were victorious in the same spirit that fired the colonists of 1778. I like to think of General Houston sending Deaf Smith back to destroy Vlnce's bridge, over which he had brought his army, so that neither reinforcements nor retreat were a possibility. Most of these men had come across the Alleghanles of from the settlements of Kentucky and Tennessee nnd Missouri into that vast virgin territory over which our now friendly neighbors, south of the Rio Grande, then held sway. The spirit of independence lived in the air. Veterans of Concord and Lexington, or Saratoga and of Yorktown still lived; the acquisition of the Louisiana territory and the second war for Independence •were events of recent history and, be it not forgotten, the people of Mexico tbemselves had won their Independence from Spain but 1'11'- teen years before. Oppressed People Rebelled Vfjhturous spirits were willing to meet the difficulties nnd clangers that came with carrying the civilization of the east into the further west— the land of unlimited promise. They were willing to comply with all the conditions required by the Mexican government when it gave to Stephen P. Austin permission to settle colonies in Texas and to grant to each settler a tract of land. They rebeled, however, when their civil liberties \yere restricted, when trial by jury and public education for their children were taken away; but they did this, I am glad to say, only after a prolonged effort on their part to have Mexico modi- ly this decision had failed. These efforts included two conventions, one in 1932 and one in 1933, and another trip by Stephen Austin to the Mexican capitol to plead the cause of the Texas colonists.

SQUARE DANCE TO BE GLORIFIED IN FRONTIER CENTENNIAL SHOW nightgown and nightcap, though it was past the noon hour, lay that slendid old man, who had been governor of Tennessee, liberator of Texas, president of the Republic, governor of Texas and senator from his state. There he was, holding a levee, transacting public and private business, and preparing for the session of the senate, which, in those clays, did not commence until the late afternoon. His office and his home was Ills hotel room. It would seem that the manners and customs of tin.' senators of the United Stales, like oUier iminnrr. 1 ; and customs, great change. undergone a This Cradle of Liberty and the eastern part of your great state, through which I came this morning, can truly be called the cradle of Texas liberty. I have been glad to revisit your beautiful city of Houston. Typical of American enterprise, you have brought the commerce of the world to your door by the ship canal through which I have recently passed. And, to, I have seen a glimpse of the future, for I have in my office at the White House a model of the beautiful memorial you are to erect here as an everlasting reminder of the bravery of Sam Houston and his men. Men fought here for principles they loved more dearly than their pvfn lives. Liberty-loving people will always do battle for principle they believe to be right. Civilization, alas, has not yet made it unnecessary for men to die in bat- Appolnte Drafael Manchola, a Mex- tie to sustain principle.

Discouraging- Days Such action could mean nothing short of a resort to arms, and the fall of the Alamo and the massacre at Goliad soon followed. Those were discouraging days for the Texans. The army of independence under General Houston could not Immediately engage General Santa Anna, with his superiority in numbers and equipment. Delay and retreat were necessary, and Houston's sagacity in biding his time, notwithstanding criticism and opposition in his own camp, was rewarded at last heije at San Jacinto. The story of the conflict of this field has often been told. When the day was ended victory was overwhelming—Texas had won. The vast territory first set up as the Lone Star Republic, and later admitted to the Union as the Lone Star State, has contributed generously in its sons and in its resources to the development of our nation in these hundred years. Sam Jacinto opened, another gateway for the westward sweep of the American people across the plains and the mountains to the shores of the Pacific. It is easy, therefore, to share With you the pride which you take In San Jacinto—to share with you the fine thought of dedicating this field as one of the historic shrines of America. We as a nation desire no further expansion. The estblishment of Texas, made possible at this spot by Sam Houston's men, seems to have been justified by the natural colonization of later years. But these heroes gave us more than territory —they sat an example which in itself is a glorious heritage. A just cause for state and national commemoration. Houston Returned It is a great personal satisfaction to me to come here and it is a special pleasure to meet Mr. Andrew Jackson Houston. What a splendid combination of names! Though you are many, many years my senior, I am proud to know that my father knew your father. I shall always remember, when I was a boy, how my father used often to tell me that, when he was a very young man, he was sent to' Washington by his law office to carry papers to Senator Houston. He told me how, on < arriving in Washington, he w'as ushered Into a huge, hlgh-ceiiinged row in .one of the capital's balconied ; l%p!$ls on Pennsylvania avenue.

I am certain, say amen to Chief Charley Ludwig, head of the Midget City Police Force at the Texas Centennial Exposition, has a son over six feet tall. Texas 'Gals"—Little beauties and comely nmazons—are preferred to Broadway showgirls by John Murray Anderson, general stage director for Billy Rose's Fort Worth Frontier Centennial. He revealed this when rehearsals pot under way for the Casa Mananu musical review in which 250 beautiful girls will appear with Sally Rand and other stars of the stage, screen, and radio. "Texas girls have what our 42nd Street hoofers get from u powder box," Anderson said. "The healthy sun tans, and sprinkling of freckle:! of Texas girls make them beautiful. On another stage Alexander Ou- mansky is attempting to glorify the old fashioned cowboy square dance, in fulfillment of a long cherished desire. While touring the United States for 20 weeks with the Diaghi- leff Russian ballet, Oumansky, a former solo dancer with the Metropolitan Opera company in New York and for the Civic Opera in Chicago become a square dance enthusiast and made up his mind to some day elevate this terpischorean dance to the place he believes it deserves. As director with Roxy at the Capital theater in New York, and for Irving Berlin's "Music Box Review" in New York and Ziegfeld's "Rio Rita" in London, Oumansky earned the reputation of being one of the foremost dance directors in the world and is responsible for the dances of Georgia Graves, premiere danseuse of the Follies Bergere in Paris. Anderson has directed many of Broadway's outstanding successes and is as well known in London and Paris as he is on 42nd street. HOT MONEY TARBORO, N. C.
