Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT A 81ST YEAR, NO. 292 ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 5, 1962 -5, I'WO SECTIONS PAGE ONE I By Katharyn Duffj Joseph Schuster, one of the World's .noted cellists, came to Abilene to appear Phil- harmonic Tuesday night but his social conversations here turned more to his pajama ex- perience than to music, Phil- harmonic Director Leo Scheer reports. The experience turned out a happy one. Mr. Schuster checked into the Windsor and. next day, discov- ered his pajamas had vanished. He searched and the hotel staff searched and he gave up and went out to buy a new pair. "I know I had he kept thinking. And, Tuesday morning as he sat practicing in his room there was a knock. He opened the door, he recounts, to a delegation of hotel employes, bearing in hand a small bouquet of flowers and the missing pajamas freshly laun- dered. The obvious had hap- pened, the sleepwear had been buried in the linens and tossed with them in the laundry chute. The famed musician accepted flowers and clean nightgarb, and gratefully fished out of his luggage a reward, 'a box of candy he had bought here to take home to his family in Bev- erly Hills. It wasn't that the pajamas were so valuable, Schuster said. He just wanted his "mental state vindicated." Some weeks ago H. Don Rodgers of Abilene ran out of First State Bank "personal- ized" checks and asked the bank to get him some more from the Dallas printer who prepares them. In due time the checks arrived and Rodgers proceeded with check-writing. At the end of March Mrs. Bddgers was somewhat puz- zled that the household account in First National was so low and H. Don was somewhat puz- zled that his First State check- ing account was so high. "Lousy at arithmetic...lake bank's word for he says, but the discrepancies were such he set about checking statements. There in First National's bun- die were the checks he had written on First State. It was a puzzle enough to make him read; for the first time, the new "First State" checks. There, printed plainly on the face of them, all six books of them, were the words, "First Nation- al Bank, Abilene, Texas." John Wright, First State of- ficer, says the printer can't ex- plain the error the two banks use different printers. As far a.s is known the Rodgers checks were the only ones switched. The recent Regional Science Fair, sponsored by the schools and The Reporter-News proved that kids are certainly smart- end that parents are certainly durable. These leftovers from the Fair were gleaned from AHS Science Teacher Odell Johnson: One mother, having to come at 9 p.m. to check out a child's project at the fair's close, was heard to mutter as she escaped the Armory where it was held, A tyke called out as a win- ner marched forth, head high, to receive a ribbon and some- one in the audience remarked he wouldn't be prouder if he got to be President. The lad's moth- er answered in a firm voice, "And neither would I." A mama, eyeing fondly a win- ning ribbon, commented, "Well, I guess this pays off for my kitchen cabinet's doubling as an operating and another breathed a sigh of relief when it was all over and said, "Now I guess there's not any cxcusfc any longer for not cleaning the living room." One National Guard sergeanT went to the Armory kitchen for refreshments during the fair and lost his lasts for sweets. A hamster had escaped one proj- ect, had been caught and put. in the cookie box for safe-keeping.
