Y* 1 ? ' £•>,' "'***'* "* ' v • ' <#-, **-. -^ DIDACTICS —By Deskins Wells The University of Texas has appointed a Negro as assistant professor of engineering, an occurrence that should meet, with no objection from any fair- minded person 'because Dr. Ervin S. Perry obviously has the scholarship and the engineering training. The university started accepting "qualified Negro students 14 years ago long before the disputes in Arkansas and Alabama and today there are some 175 Negro students on the campus at Austin. As a matter of fact there are Negro students an every major college and university in Texas with the possible exception 'of Rice which was originally endowed as an all-white institute. Of course a large number of Negroes are turned down by these same colleges each year for scholastic reasons; but that also applies to am even larger number of white' students. As a matter of fact there has been practically no racial disturbance in this state, in striking contrast to all the turmoil that has arisen in New York, Washington, Detroit, Chicago, and other northern cities. The newspapers and magazines of those regions should take a closer look at conditions nearer home before they point an accusing finger southward. As usual the talk on the streets is about the fainfaH and the lack of it. Some parts of the area have enjoyed abundant moisture and other sections have received very little, but what the people are hoping for are general rains that will get the country to the west and southwest of us soaking wet before the hot; days of summer. We are thinking of going to the Worlds Fair this summer and I dread it. Newspaper reports indicate that the lines' are too long and the prices too high. One report indicates that the waiting time to get into some of the pavillions is as long as three hours. Under such a timetable a tourist would be doing well to see two out of 150 pavillions in a day. Maybe we will be doing a little better since we will be in an escorted group; but the business of "move when they say move and stop when they say stop" is not exactly a picnic on a hot summer day. At the last World's Fair in New York, Lee O'Neil and I nearly walked Judge C. C. Bishop and Bob Gjlenn down. Bob said we couldn't; do it if he had us out in a pasture instead of "this blistering pavement." Anyway -we saw quite a bit of the fair and New York City in three days' time. I sent J. K. Porter and (Billy Wilkerson to Huntsville last week. I also asked D. E. Scott .if he wanted to go to Hunts- .vilJe and then waited quite a pause before adding: to a mechanical conference that is. "No," was the reply. "I don't want to go to Huntsville to Owens & Scott Anniversary to Be Celebrated Owens & Scott Super Market will observe their 16th anniversary in Wellington this week, for it was in 1949 the (partnership was formed between George Scottj and Steve Owens. The /bu-siiness was originally founded iby Steve Owens in tihe •late twenties as a small grocery operated in connection with a fitting station ' at , the present location of Steve Owens Supply. Mr. Scott has been in active charge of the management of the store since the partnership was founded, while Mr. Owens has occupied himself with various other interests including ranching and irrigated farming. In January of this year the Suiper Market was moved to its new building which consists of an entire city block including the paved parking area. The new store was designed to afford amiple room for the convenient display of merchandise in all of the departments as well as to provide ample parking room. In addition to George Scott, other members of the personnel of the store are: Carroll Daves, head checker; Beverly Lee, assistant checker; Roy Bounds, produce; Bill Langford, head of the meatj department, and Linda Norman assistant, and Keith Brown and Dwayne Poteet. Dr. Mickey — from page one since I was 15, and it will be my life's work," Dr. Hickey said. Both Dr. and Mrs. Hickey received bachelor of arts de- ;rees from Ouachita Baptist College, Ouachita 1 , Ark., and he received ibis BD and ThD de- rees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth. Mrs. Hickey received icr master of religious education degree there. First Baptist Church in Wellington was his first pastorate after completing his work at ihe seminary. Charles Reynolds — from page one county attorney. He is president of the Childress County Bar Association and member of the State Bar of Texas and 100th Judicial District Bar Association. He is a past president of the Childress Rotary Club. He also has been an officer of or active in the Childress County United Fund, Salvation Army. March of Dimes, Childress Jaycees, Childress County Old Settlers Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, and Chamber of Commerce. He is married to the former Nelmarie Parman and they have two sons, Charles Jr., 13, and Parman, 12. They are members of the First Baptist Church in Childress. FATHER AND SON—ONE BUILDS, Forty-nine years ago the late Fate Goforth built the second story over the Hardy and O'Neil Drug Store for Lee O'Neil, the owner. This week, his son, Frank Goforth of Goforth Construction Co., Amarillo, is tearing down the top story to remodel the building into one of Wellington's most modern business houses. For many years, Dr. E. W. Jones and Dr. THE OTHER DEMOLISHES E. W. Moss had their offices on the second floor, and operated what may be considered the forerunner of Wellington's fine hospital system. Lee O'Neil still owns the building. Goforth said the front will be of plate glass and vertical aluminum siding. The interior will be remodeled from the ground up. Signals Explained a mechanical conference or for any other reason either." This column was started about 6 o'clock in tihe morning and here in my notes is one saying: "Put the beans in the well and turn on .the stove." Hmmm—that is not my handwriting. \ in the WholeWide World Tornado Warning Two Long Blasts from Siren Two long, even blasts from the fire sirens mean go to your cellar* That's Wellington's storm warning sigmial to indicate the approach of a tornado - like cloud or one that; couJd (bring turbulent weather, Fire Chief Buster Hughs said this week. This signal is a long, steady sound, followed by a short pause, then another long, steady blast. Since these warnings sometimes come during the night, the storm signal will be repeated after a short pause, as some people may not awaken to the first one, Hughs said. There are two other signal's sounded on the fire department T. B. Wilkins — from page one Term.; T. JB. Wilkins Jr. of Amarillo; Lloyd L. Wilkins of HeaMton, Okla.; Patrick H. Wilkins of San Antonio; Glenn M. Wilkins of Fort Worth; Tom Wiltons of Wellington; Michael Wilkins of Loraine, Ohio; and Jimmy Wilkins of Memphis, Tenn. Other survivors are a brother, George H. WHkins of Dallas; 17 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. siren, Hughs explained. One long even blast indicates to firemen to report to the fire station. It could indicate a meeting, and these are usually heard on adternate Monday evenings about 7 or 7:30 o'clock. This signal also is used to indicate a rural fire. One long undulating 'blast indicates a fire within the city. Mrs. Stella West — from page one West lived at Floyd, N.M. She was married to H. Z. West at Hollis March 20, 1929.

"I've never had first aid, and the only thing I knew about mouth to mouth resuscitation was from a leaflet Walter got from the National Guard for their medicine cabinet." Walter Spear of Amarillo is the Whites' son'-in-law. But it's one piece of knowledge Jimmie Wihite hopes she never 'has to use again. At least 21 Texas streams aire known as Mill Creek.
