Otherwise it is still quiet along the pigskin front. But not for long. The campaign opens in earnest Friday night and to Lamar goes the distinction of raising the curtain. The Redskins' opponent will be Lake Charles High School. There is little dope on what the Louisiana boys may or may not do but this game has its interesting angles, the most important of which is that it will disclose the strong and weak points of the 1944 dis- trict champs which up to this writ- ing are strictly mysteries.

In dollars and cents, one of these sharp, shiny implements is purely incidental, but in the hands of a clever whittler such as Gerald K. Miller of 3719 University, that same bladed object becomes price- less in its mastership of art and imagination. For 15 years Mr. Miller has been carving with his pocketknife from wood, and his ability is far from being amateurish. He has a collec- tion of clever figurines ranging from hula-hula dancers to Pop-Eye, the Sailor—all entirely hand-carved from wood and brightly painted with oils. Made Sailboat A 14-inch sailboat beautifully sculptured and a group of graceful airplane models of B-29 and P-38 design are among his other mas- terpieces, but his latest is by far the most outstanding and intricate of his accomplishment...

B. ALLEN City Secretary, West University Place It is recorded in history that an early traveler exploring Texas for a site for a railroad right-of-way journeyed west- ward on horseback. Shortly after he left the outskirts of the then small City of Houston, he reported in a book he wrote later, he reined his horse, so taken aback he was by the beauty of the prairie that lay between Buffalo and Brays bayous. Little did this early traveler dream what the future held for the Metropolis of Houston, and it was Surely beyond his wildest conception that mode r 11 little municipality, such as West University Place, would some day spring up from those same prairies.

L. Crain and Company, who plotted and opened this 150 acres of prairie west of Main Street which now contains 390 homes and 1300 citizens. This area is the smallest of the incorporated cities in this section and has no prospect of further expansion. Its citizens, however, seem very content with their present setup of almost 100 '/c home ownership, good neighbors, less than 40 vacant homesites, streets lined with trees, non- paid city government and a block-square park with swim- ming pool that is the envy of surrounding localities.
