I An 82-Year-Old Pioneer Texas Businessman By LOUISE PREECE Route 4, Box I, Austin, TexB*. (Copyright, 1940. by the Southwest Mugatlne Co.) t. A. GANTT, 82-year-old pioneer businessman of Round Rock, (Williamson county), Texas, was born in Camilla, Georgia. He came to Round Rock in 1878 at the age of 21, a lone traveler, as his father and mother, sisters and brothers chose to re- main in Georgia. "When 1 told my par- ents 1 wanted to come to Texas," said Mr. Gantt, "they strenuous- ly objected, the chief objection being that I was too young, too in- experienced to cope with a country as wild and undeveloped as Texas was at that time. "Ever since a young- ster I had made up my mind to come to Texas. Father used to thrill me with stories about the West. He lived in Tex- as five years when a young man and owned and operated a private wagon-train that haul- ed freight between Tex- as points, "Finally my parents gave consent for me to leave home for Texas provided I would go direct to Ro...

Finnish Relief ^HE Finnish relief fund in the United States, headed by former President Hoover, has about reached the million-dollar mark and is being spent on shoes, clothing, additional rations for evacuated civil- ians and similar aid.

The American Red Cross has sent $160,000 worth of supplies, such as medicines, tents, blankets and clothing. Further, $93,000 worth of supplies have been provided by the General Red Cross. This end of the work is under the supervision of the United States Public Health Service. Sweden has given the most aid to Finland, but Norway and Denmark also have contributed much. The biggest help for Finland provided thus far is about $15,000,000 contributed by Swed- ish industries with no restrictions on ho...
