Reading Notices 10«i per line Thursday, April 30, 1964 This Is theYearAthletes Sfand Tall in Collingsworfh A year of athletic glory is near the end for Collingsworth county high schools, in which seven district championships in three classes were shared, and one more, baseball, remains to be determined. When has that happened to us before? The bulk of .the honors have come to Class A Wellington, since it has the most teams, but Quail came in with a boys basketball championship in Class 9-B, and the Booker T. Washington girls track team not only won their district but went on to place second in the state, losing the championship by only one point. There should be pride in every heart for these young athletes, for never has physical fitness and stamina meant so much. A closer look brings out something more. A surprising number of these athletic champions are also outstanding scholastically. It would have been well if every athlete in the county could have heard Coach Berl Huffman of Texas Tech when he told the Wellington boys and girls there is no longer any place for mediocrity. Scholarship and athletics must go together, he told them bluntly. The course is fast and the race is getting faster, and students will have to work harder if they are to keep up. In all the praise of teams, we who sit in the bleachers must not forget those who make the teams possible, the coaches. In every case in the schools of this county, the coach is also a classroom teacher, and in several instances also a school administrator. But this year these and all other obstacles have been overcome with glory. Let's BlovT?^ xMstle on Crime LAW DAY, MAY 1, BY PRESIDENTIAL PROCLAMATION REPORT Dear Editor: • I see where the earthquake- shook • citizens of Alaska are getting help from Washington, which consists of about 90% runaround and 10% cash. But it wouldn't do, of course, for the federal money spreaders 'to go around pouring out Domestic Aid as spreely as they do Foreign 1 Aid, After all, they can't afford to corrupt good sources of tax money by getting them accustomed to free help every time they get disastered toy some natural calamity like flood, earthquake, or April 15. I see where the sub-war we are fSighting down in South Vietnam Is not going overwhelmingly in our favor. Which my Southernfied neighbor says may be due to some of our leaders just can't put their whole hearts^ into a fight for any area 1 which is South of somewhere. Says it's been noticed that numerous North USAians have still got some Southernphobia in their systems, even after 100 years, but it might have taken a hundred centuries to breed it all outi if the South had won. I see where a Purdue professor has worked out a system whereby kids in the first, second and third grades can be taught Economics. But my coffee-soaked economist neighbor says the good professor has failed to- announce what tytpe of Economics he is fixing to teach to these littfle children'. After all, there are two distinctly different branches of this science, to-wit: Economics with Your Own Money, and Economics with Other People's Money. And only the folks with official conflict-of-interest permits are entitled to practice both kinds. I see where school teachers in some big cities are wanting combat pay and death-in-dine- of-duty benefits because the kids are getting so aggressive. It appears that some children and a few other people just haven't yet heard that modern social etiquette is to use Quiet Reason instead of force and threats in all differences except racial squabbles and tax collecting. My pioneer pedagogue neighbor says some early day country school .teaching was pretty * • * Bratten Explains Service Cuts in Post Office lihe limited adjustments in some postal services ordered in Washington March 10 by Postmaster General John A. Gronouski to save $12.7 million will begin to take effect in Wellington and other cities May 4, Postmaster L. B. Bratten said today.

Regular business mail deliveries will continue as usual. Letters and other first class mail will be handled with the same .priority as ever. I The economy step, Bratten explained, is in line with President Johnson's programs under which the recent Federal income tax cut was provided. Only two (bridges connect Venice with the mainland' of Italy. Father of Mrs. Henry Injured Jesse Shurbet of Ploydada, father of Mrs. George Henry, is in Methodist Hosjpifcal, Lubbock, for treatment of injuries received in a car accident about two weeks ago. He reecivedl a 1 ibroken leg near the hip, and while his condition is improved, he will be in traction several weeks yet before he can 'be placed in a cast, Mrs. Henry said. The accident occurred when Mr. Shurbet's car hit a soft shoulder and went out of control as ihe was , driving alone on a cou<ntry road. No other car was involved, his daughter added. She has been with her father much of the time since he was injured. In addition to having visited here many times, Mr. Shurbet also judged the first Quarter Horse Show held here in connection with the Fair. Bargains in the Classifieds. Re Zlect < JOHNC.
