T, Galvcslon, Texas, wrote us as follows: "On our company's semi-annual physical examination, I was told that I would have to take off 20 pounds. Asking around for the best way to lose weight, a friend suggested that I try Barcentratc. I did so and the 20 pounds were lost in a little over a month.

The four days have been designated as T h a n k s g i v i n g Day, Pioneer Day, Industry and Commerce Day, and Independence Day, respectively. There will be parades on the last three days, and three Southwest Conference Bands Baylor, Texas and Texas A. and M.—will participate, along with numerous college and high school bands. Central figure in the planning is Bill Daniel, Bicentennial director-general. A former state representative from this area, he is particularly proud of the fact that ho has been able to induce so many official state groups .to lend their prestige to the First Bicentennial ever held in the state. Four separate wagon trains, collectively bigger than Houston's Salt Grass Trail, will converge on Liberty from north, south, -east and west at 3 p.m. April 18 to sound the start of the Bicentennial. At 4 p.m. five of the state's outstanding ' religious leaders will speak in <i program designed to give religion the recognition it deserves in this historical event .and "set the tone for the whole four-day show.' 1 The speakers include Bishop \V. .1. Nold, head of the Galveston Diocese of the Catholic Church; Dr. AVillis Tate. president of Southern Methodist University; Dr. W. R. White, president of Baylor University; Bishop Clinton S. Quin. retired Episcopal bishop, and Dr, Hyman J. Schachtel, Houston rabbi. Roy Acuff and his Smoky Mountain boys will put on a show and play for a street dance opening night. There are 500 local residents rehearsing for the , Bicentennial Cava!ca4c, the historic pageant to be presented in the football stadium on three of the four nights during the celebration,' and the technical staff on that job brings the. total to more than 1,000. .'...All the major activity, except the cavalcade, will take" place on the square in downtown Liberty. The area will be roped off to make room for a carnival, a medicine show, Indian tribes, and horses and riders. On April 21, the final day, Liberty will re-live the events that took place here on April 21, 1837, just one year after the end of the Texas Revolution. As it was then, the day will be climaxed with the Independence Ball. The Bicentennial version however, will be decorated by the Thirst Ho Gude To Good Drinking Water BROOK-INGS, S.
