4 PAMM OAKY NtWS I'AMI'A. TKXAS ««ih YEAH Thursday. June 22, 1972 Mrs. NonaS. Payne of Pampa had a real surprise when she attended the recent awards banquet for the Cowboy Artists of America at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. There were gold medal awards and speeches, then silver medal awards and more speeches. Now for a special recognition, the master of ceremonies announced, it's Mrs. Payne's birthday! And so it happened that as the two-tiered cake was brought out, the group of award winners, members of the Hall, Western art collectors, and guests sang Happy Birthday over 600 strong. It was surprise enough to take her breath away, but she recovered in time to say a happy word and blow out the two candles on the cake. Each candle represented a year of service on the Board of Trustees for Mrs. Payne. This Spring, she was elected honorary director, the first to receive such recognition. Mrs. Payne's husband the late Dave D. Payne, a widely known Roberts County rancher, was elected to the Hall of Fame of Great Westerners in 1971 for his outstanding values as a pioneer. The glittering array of guests * had come from all over the United States. There were guests from New York, California, Texas, Alaska and other states. Several Texans were honored. Texas artists who were awarded silver medals for their entries in the Cowboy Artists competition were Melvin Warren of Clifotn, for his pastel, "Old Manof Talpa;" and James Boren, also of Clifton, for his watercolor, "Cowboy Caucus." A special Wrangler award was presented to C.T. McLaughlin, Snyder, Te«as, recognizing his contribution to Western art through the Diamond M Museum and Foundation. Trustees' silver medal awards were accepted by Mrs. J. Lee Johnson for the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, and by Richard Seamon, Managing Editor, for the Austin "American-Statesman." Pampa Agency Offers Suggestions On Safer July 4th Holiday Driving Fireworks, picnics and long trips will mark the upcoming July Fourth weekend. The Pampa Association of Insurance Agents warns, however, that roads will be more crowded than ever as many companies are granting employes a four-day weekend. "Families will be tempted to take longer car trips this weekend than they would normally," said Joe Fischer, president of the Pampa Insurance Agents Association. "We hope that people won't try to cram more into the extra day than they can handle." Noting that over last year's three-day July Fourth weekend 635 lives were lost on the nation's highways, the local independent insurance agents offer these suggestions for a more pleasant and safer holiday: —A well planned trip will be more enjoyable for all. Limit the distance to be covered to a reasonable estimate of the time available. —Roads will be crowded, so be patient. Consider taking the scenic route rather than the major highways. These will be less crowded and may well prove to be the quickest route. — If major, congested highways cannot be avoided, keep your timetable flexible. Remember, it will take twice as long to get to your destination at 30 m.p.h. than at the planned 60 m.p.h. —Make sure all drivers bring their licenses, and let everyone take a turn behind the wheel. That way no one gets worn out and all have a chance to enjoy the ride. —Plan for regular breaks on a long trip. Many people put a two hour limit to any stretch of a trip and then stop for a 15 minute break. —Make sure that all safety equipment is in top condition. Have a mechanic give the car a safety check that includes wheel alignment and balance, brakes, tires, lights and horn. —Have everyone buckle-up before leaving the driveway. Children may object but some five-and-dime-store games can take their minds off the restraints. —If you stop for meals along the way, keep them light. There is usually little need for large meals when sitting in a car. Also, leave drinking to the end of the trip or at your overnight stop. A small amount of alcohol impairs a driver's reaction and increases the chances for an accident. —When you get to your destination, use moderation in everything. Don't overdo anything; exercise, fun, sun, food, or drink. You have to drive home, so don't wear yourself out. The return trip calls for extra caution. If you feel tired, rest a while and start later, behind the major traffic. Keep alert to conditions around you. The Pampa Association of Insurance Agents says that a safe July Fourth and every day depends on the best safety device of them ail, a thinking driver. Odessa Presidential Museum Exhibiting 25,000 New Items ODESSA — In an election year already filled with campaign and convention color, excitement, and rhetoric visitors to Odessa's Presidential Museum this Summer and Fall will enjoy an added dimension of political nostalgia. Opening June 17 and run through the November election, a special museum exhibit, "Presidential Conventions and Campaigns," will bring to life again the issues and personalities of presidential elections past through the media of campaigh souvenirs and political memorabilia. Over 25,000 campaign and election items from The Presidential Museum's permanent collection and on loan from 50 well-known collectors from 20 states will be featured in the special exhibit. In colorful displays candidates both famous and forgotten smile down from faded campaign posters, a unique collection of charcoal sketches depict the "also-rans" in each election, and a gallery of pen-and-ink pictures commemorate the 15 women who sought the Presidency. Issues and men in various elections are recalled in the simplicity of button slogans, political cartoons, and election gimmicks. The dignity of early bronze campaign medals depicting 1840 candidate William Henry Harrison or 1864 hopeful John C. Freemont, with solemn bromides like "Free Soil and Free Speech," contrast sharply with the multi-color pictures and snappy slogans of more recent campaigns. Valuable historical materials such a* a recording of one of President McKintey's speeches. as well as less serious campaign items like a "Teddy Bear" pitcher, a Truman pipe, and a can of "Goldwater--The Right Drink for the Conservative Taste," vintage 1964, are also included in the unique "Conventions and Campaigns" exhibit. Also to be on view for the first time June 17 will be a special "Presidential Cartoons" display which will feature hundreds of humorous and satirical drawings from the museum's collection and on loan from famous contemporary cartoonists. In addition to these special exhibits, Odessa's Presidential Museum features a number of permanent displays including a world-renowned Presidential Wood Mosiacs collection, hand-carved presidential caricatures, facsimiles of the Presidents homes, and the only vice-presidential portrait gallery outside the nation's capital. With more than 12,000 artifacts, art works, and items of memorabilia, the Presidential Museum is recognized as the best Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Thursday, June 22, the 174th day of 1972, There are 192 days left in the year.

Court Of Criminal Appeals Upholds 250-Year Sentences For Three Convict* AUSTIN <AP) - the t«xa* Court of Criminal Appeals overruled legal technicalities today in upholding 290-year sentences given three men by Dallas juries for murder. The court upheld the conviction of Charles Edward Grayson in the Feb. 5. 1970 pistol slaying of Harold C. McBride, a liquor More proprietor who was shot during a robbery. Also affirmed was the joint conviction of Charlie Carlos Lo- pet and Gregory Jlmene* Jr., who were accused of snooting Guadalupe Flares Garcia, a Mexican national, during a June 20, itTOstickup. Grayson's lawyers objected because the trial judge allowed a grocery store clerk to testify that Grayson was with two other men who robbed her store four weeks after McBride was killed. Usually, the court does not permit testimony concerning offenses other than the one for which adrfwdtm is on trial But it slid such testimony is permissible if it shows the defendant's state of mind during the period of the crime. The testimony can be admitted also ••where such extraneous offenses have been executed according to a system or method and it is shown that the accused commuted other such offenses and, in so doing, followed the same plan or method." Witnesses said that in both robberies, one man went in first, bought wmfthlnf, and left, returning momwww later with two others to commit the holdup. In the Lopez and Jlmenet case, defense lawyers claimed on appeal that an illegal search was performed when officers seited Lopez' car keys, opened his automobile door and retrieved the murder weapon from the glove compartment.
