Shamrock Gets Ready for St. Patricks Day SHAMROCK.—The spirit of the Irish is soaring ihiiigh in Shamrock and Donegal fuzz is growing on the chins of business men who are stepping at a brisk pace, wearing green top hats and ties, in preparation for the 18th annual St. Patrick's Day celebration in this Texas Panhandle town. Seibert Worley, former mayor of Shamrock, is .general chairman of this year's festival. "In this Ibig event we need everybody," Worley declared, so he has appointed more chairmen than he can "shake a shiMeghlagih at." The steering committee is composed mainly of former general! chairmen of the St. Patrick's Day celebration who stilt make their home in the Irish city. Back in 1938, the Boosters Club grabbed 'bhe idea for the celebration, rolled uip their sleeves and went to work. Sol Blonstein was the first general chairman. This igroup of young men launched a celebration that was destined to grow into one of the most colorful extravaganzas in the Southwest, which draws some 40,000 visitors to the little town of a few more than 3,000 inhabitants, for a day of each year on ST.
