White of the Atlanta Cham- ber of Commerce. A most inter- esting thing has happened. A few farmers in each of our adjoining counties have asked permission to grow potatoes to be made into stock feed. Some of the Chamber of Commerce in adjoining counties, quick to realize that a new day was dawning in the stock feed field, are having enough acreage grown in their area to give a good test. One said "We can't go into the matter this year, as it is now too late for us to lay the foundation. But we do want some of our farmers to grow this white seed potato so that we can use their experience to de- monstrate the feasiability of the idea." "The farmers are responding splendidly," ...

THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 1941 THE CITIZENS, JOURNAL, ATLANTA, CASS COUNTY, TEXAS = ALEXANDER'S COLUMN Editorial I dedicate this space to one of the greatest little dramatic teach- ers that ever taught at old A. H. S. Having attended Denton Teachers College and Cornell of New York, Miss Christine Smith taught for a while at Hughes Springs and then moved here to teach and become a leading personality. A short time before Christmas Miss Smith was asked to stage a Christmas pageant. She did so with great success. Her next task was to coach the one-act play for the county meet. She picked her characters and began to work. Then bad luck set in. First, she was con fined to the hospital. When she re turned to teaching it was but three days before the meet. With courage and determination, she set to work again and in three days produced a one-act play that won highest county honors. A few weeks later the play was to go to the district meet at Tex- arkana. Everyone thought that at the district wou...

Mrs. De Flay Johnson was the hostess. Throughout the house spring flowers of pansies, lilacs, English daisies and sweet peas ser- ved to attractively decorate the home. One of the most interesting pro- grams of the year was presented at this time. Each speaker gave some legend which has never been included in a Texas history book, but without which the lovers of Texas would miss something of its folklore. J. Frank Dobie, professor of English at the University of Texas, has collected many of these old tales and the stories under dis- cussion were taken from his book, "On the Op...

THE CITIZENS, JOURNAL, ATLANTA, CASS COUNTY, TEXAS Myra Neal Harrell SOCIETY EDITOR Phone 178 THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1941 Atheneum Club Holds Meeting Discussing timely topics on De- mocracy and Isms, the Antheneum club held its regular meeting in the home of Mrs. Tommy Morris, Thursday, May 24. Mrs. Francis Sims was leader of this program. Speaking on the subject, "What is Democracy?" Miss Virginia White pointed out that democracy as an ideal is something to be cher- ished, labored for and defended with everything we are or have. What are the marks of demo- cracy—the things that make it dif- ferent from (and we hope better than) other kinds of government? Miss White asked. First, there's the principle of "majority rule." This is certainly a great principle, and if all people were intelligent enough, reasonable enough and equally satisfied with the way the good things of life are distributed, the system would work perfectly. Democracy usually does work well where all members can get to- ge...

At this time Mrs. Burton Moore, re- viewed "As 1 Remember Him," by Hans Zinsser. Mrs. Moore said "In the first place, let it be said that all who read Dr. Zinsser's 'Rats, Lice and History' will want to read this sec- ond book by the same author. They will find in it the same civilized hu- mor, the same occasional harmless irreverences, same broad philoso- phy, the same doubts that are not cynical and beliefs that are not dognamic.
