In 14 Wyt Abilene "WITHOUT OP WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT Byron 82ND YEAR, NO. 160 ABILENE, 1 SAW 3100 9908 xa 03 PAGE ONE Mrs. Sanford Tune of Cole- man spent some days in Hen- diick Memorial Hospital a few weeks ago. The hospital was full to overflowing when she ar- rived but a place was made for her on a special floor. Memories of her hospital stay linger on because of reminders to her by mail. Mrs. Tune keeps getting these advertisements, free coupons, offers from specialty compan- ies. The companies all sell baby- food. The hospital room where she was housed, Mrs. Tune recalls, was on the mEternity floor. Mrs. Tune on Tuesday cele- brated her 75th birthday. A couple of Abilene High journalism students. Bill Kin- caid and Alton Strickland, re- ceived a likely enough assign- ment from their teacher, Miss Jimmie Warthan, the other day. It was: Find the origin of the name "Eagle." Everyone knows that the Ea- gle is the school's sports symbol, but who started it, when and why? The school's yearbook named, could be pinpoint- ed. Miss Tommie Clack, long its sponsor, reports it started in 1911, some years before she be- gan teaching in AHS. The book was named for that brand new torch which had come in to light the world. The school seal, a flashlight whose rays are on the school's name, was designed in 1923. There was a contest and the design submitted by talented young George Leach won, Miss Tommie recalls. George died a few months later, a victim of pneumonia. The name "Battery" for the school newspaper appeared in '26. But the history of "Eagle" is dimmed. The name must have come in the early '20's, the students de- cided. Some yearbooks missing from school files may hold the answer. In the earliest 20's there was no mention of Eagles. Aft- er the missing years the word was used in '23-24 with no expla- nation. There was a fine semi-pro baseball team here about then, named "Eagles." The students conclude, pending correction, the name drifted over to school. Where, an anonymous new- comer asks, did you people get these names you have for towns and for those depressions you call creeks? Deadman? Jim Ned? Well now, it's surprising to find such ordinary names surpris- as it is surprising to hear some new resident talk about POTosi, TuxEEdo or put the accent on 0 in Ovalo. Sure- ly you know it is TUXedo. Our names are logical, as we are a logical people. We made up some of them. Lowake..there were those two early residents named Lowe and Schake.... We picked up more of peo- ple's name for some. Jim Ned? You have a choice. One is that the name came from a Delaware Indian scout. The other is that there were these two faithful slaves, one named Jim, the other named Ned. Some names are descriptive. Ovalo, the Spanish word mean- ing oval such as the valley in which the settlement was made. Potosi, according to the best information at hand was named for a city in Mexico, but we didn't like the pronunciation that put the accent on the last syl- lable so we called it Potosi. Tuxedo used to be Bonita. ac- cording to the Handbook of Tex- as, but there was already a post office by that name so, quite logically, someone suggested a dress suit as a substitute. Deadman? The Handbook sayg an unidentified man was found dead at a crossing and so the creek wai named. You can't beat that logic.
