Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1962, Abilene, Texas gCbflene ISUjjorter-, "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE ToVRffENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 152 ABILENE, TEXAS, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 15, PAGE ONE Next Sunday afternoon at a medallion will be hung on the Concho County Courthouse at Paint Rock designating it a building of historical merit. On Wednesday, Nov. 28, me- dallions will be presented at Al- bany marking the old Ledbetter Pickett House and the Shackel- ford Courthouse. These are examples of some 515 such events since March 3 when the Texas State Histori- cal Survey Committee, headed by Dr. Kupert N. Richardson of Abilene, placed Medallion No. 1 on the historic Eggleston House at Gonzales. Another 500 such medallion events are in the im- mediate offing. Those add up to quite a "suc- cess" story for this grassroots historical elfort. The Texas State Historical Survey Commitee was estab- lished by the Legislature in 1953 to perform services its name implies. It never has had much money its 18 members have to dig up some of the funds themselves and it went along for a time at an even pace working on various projects. Then it began its medallion program. Dr. Richardson, chairman now some two years, says it was a committee idea with John Ben Shepperd of Odessa as a prime mover. The committee decided that, working through local survey groups, it would approve buildings of local his- torical and cultural significance for marking if local people would pay the cost of each medallion. When the sur- vey is complete the data is to be compiled into booklets and maps for the State Highway Depart- ment to give to tourists. Thfi historians awarded their in March. Then came the deluge. Public response was fantastic. Nearly every town had some building it wanted marked. Lo- cal interest and local pride were enough to warm the commit- tee's hearts and keep them on the run says Mrs. L. E. Dudley, Abilene's second mem- ber of the group and a hard- working member. Dr. Richard- son estimates the survey has meant miles of travel for him this year. Pride in local heritage shows through in the presentations. At Paint Rock Sunday Judge 0. L. Sims of San Angelo, whose forebearers came to Concho as the Indians were leaving, will spin some tales of the quaint courthouse which was built in 1886. (No, it isn't Paint Rock's oldest building. Across the street is a structure where, tra- dition says, courthouse con- struction workers whiled away off hours at cards and booze.) Mttlard Cope, San Angelo news- paperman and committee mem- ber, will make the medallion presentation and Mrs. Dudley will be a guest of honor. Albany, on Nov. 28 will have a couple of unusual events at its presentation. Bob Nail, who is local chair- man, says there will be a lunch- eon for state committee mem- bers at the picket house. The menu if Bob can find the courage will include an- telope, a meat such as the pick- et house's original occupants might have served. The antelope meat is frozen and ready to prepare. But Bob may not have nerve enough to serve it. he re- ports "doesn't taste very good. May deer." After the luncheon the .com- mittee members will ride In style to the courthouse. They'll ride as they doubtless have never ridden in a stage- coach, the old Fandangle stage- coach. Everybody doesn't serve ante- lope and offer stagecoach rides but nearly every town has some local buildJiw It wants the his- torians to approve. Every town, that Is. but Abilene.

Both leaders agreed there would )e time afterward to review other East-West conflict and decide what moves to make toward erasing them, U.S. officials said. Cuba along with the Ger-i many-Berlin question was a major topic at morning and after- noon sessions at the White House between Kennedy, Adenauer and their top aides. At a luncheon, Adenauer told [Kennedy that the U.S. stand on 3uba was a great success for America and a failure for Soviet Premier Khrushchev. "The world has once again seen Mr. Khrushchev as he really him. Chavan takes over a post Nehru himself had handled in the 15-day interval since it was vacated by the 'controversial V. K.

But he really believes he has been on safe ground. Wednesday, County Clerk Mrs. Chester Hutcheson re- ceived a letter from Webb which stated: "Inadvertently the enclosed marriage license No. 3-303 is- sued (in Taylor County) June 8, 1929 to Gordon Webb and Miss Minnie Lee West was not recorded after the marriage ceremony (the next "Thirty-three years, three children and four grandchil- dren later, we're confident this marriage will last." He then requested Mrs. Hutcheson record the slightly yellowed license and return it to him. So it will be. viously without portfolio, to over the general job. His title is minister for economic and defense coordination. Bitter temperatures gripped the mountain battle lines. A Defense Ministry spokesman said it was about zero in the east. and 30 be- low at Chushul airfield of Ladakh in the west. The battle lines have been rela- tively stagnant since the Red Chi- nese offensive of late October. The gold, worth at world prices, is to go into the national defense fund to help carry on the fight against Red China's invasion. But it's a multimillion-dollar war. Finance Minister Moraji Desai asked Parliament for J199.5 mil- lion to meet increased costs of the armed forces. The regular appro- priation for the fiscal year ending next March 31 is million. Parliament authorized institu- tion of a state of modified form of martial and completed passage of a reso- lution dedicating the Indian people "to drive out the aggressor from the sacred soil of India, however long and hard the struggle may be."

"I didn't even know I was going o be he said. "All was thinking about was getting >ack home and getting my cotton stripping finished." The unexpected move by the member Farm Bureau nard of directors came at the end of the 29th annual convention Vednesday night. Most of the 000 members here for the con- vention were on their way home, expecting J. H. West of Bishop, president of the organization for he past five years, to be elected again. DeVaney, who had been serving as vice president, will be succeed- ed by J. T. Woodson of Gober.

DeVaney already knows the re- sponsibilities of being Bureau president. He served several months as acting president during the illness of J. Walter Hammond, Tye farmer, ten years ago. Hammond became ill Oct. 1, 1952, and DeVaney, as second in com- mand, had the task of presiding at the convention opening in No- vember in San Antonio. DeVaney served as head of the state farm organization from Oct. 1 until mid January of 1953. Di- rectors then placed him on full- time duty in 19S3 to assist Presi- dent Hammond. Hammond was stricken with a grave artery condition while at an American Farm Bureau feder- ation meeting in Chicago. H was after three weeks in a Chi- that he was able to be brought home to recuperate at his farm at Tye.
