A good many of the mer- chants have agreed to start a cam- paign of poison. One merchant, it j is understood, put out seventeen traps and snared seventeen of the rodents in one night; another placed seven traps, resulting in the capture of seven great big 'uns. Another merchant, not a food dealer, report- ed a loss of around in one night on merchandise. So, it seems "now is the time to come to the aid of the party" to rid the town of rats. Every merchant and every home- owner should do what he can to rid ihe city of these.pests. ECONOMY BLOC INTRODUCES Bill TO CUT DEPARTMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS BY More Conscience Money By Associated Press "The suggestion that school-zone signs be placed on South Locust Street, between the Handv Motor Co. bldg.. and the Methodist Church and between the Southern Hotel "and the Magnolia Filling Station, is certainly one that should be fol- lowed said a citizen who sees the school children as they cross and recross South Locust. "There is porbabiy more auto-traffic on South Locust, and it's probably faster than in most places, than on any street in Denton, and safe- guards should be placed there for the protection of both the children and the autoists. I hope to see the signs erected soon." George Fritz, rormer Dentonite now a resident of Weatherford, claims to have held the Weather- Lieutenant Governor Overruled on Question of _ _.

Woodul ruled the measure was not within the Governor's sessicn call for rev- enue raising but members sustain- ed, 18 to 8, an appeal from the pre- siding officer's ruling. The measure was referred to the finance committee, for public hear- ings. Although the upper legislative chamber was privileged to adopt the measure, it confronted addi- tional hurdles, including rejection by the House and veto by the gov- ernor. Senate attaches said it was the first time in years the membership had overruled a decision by the chair. Woodul figuratively took the bull by the horns since no point of order had been raised against the bill. He rejected suggestions Series Influence? Cather- ine Rough jokingly asked her grocer for a "dozen double-yok- ed eggs." She took them home and se- lected two for a meal. One was a oth- er a "triple." "We tried to give you a nice little practice game of foot- ball. I asked the Weatherford coach net to let his men embarrass Den- ton High by beating them too bad. He granted my request." The cool Norther of Wednesday night brought along with it hun- dreds of geese, which, as they flew over Denton, waked the people with their honking. It's rather early for geese to be here at this time of the year and old-timers say their flight indicates a cold and long winter. The squirrel and rabbit prophets have not been heard from as yet, but we should soon be hear- ing as to whether the fur-bearing animals have unusually heavy coats. He held there was no precedent to place appropriations within the chief executive's call, but added the Senate was at liberty to decide oih- erwise without regard for personal f friendship for him. Senator H. Grady Woodruff of De- catur, author, was joined with oth- ers in contending the governor's call for the special session auto- matically submitted the subject ot appropriations sines it was impos- sible to vote new taxes without al- loting the revenue to various funds which could constitute a direct appropriation. Big Ed Miller, genial banker, smiles when he talks about his new James Houston Miller, but has- admitted that James Houston will, play on. .the Rotary softball team next year. I Jim Seaborn, ex fender-sitter, says, -'No, I just can't bear to look at .those things any more; in fact I am fender-shy now. It may be that Til have to take the fenders off my cr. .1 car, not that they entice me in the least as they used to, but just to keep from seeing them." Mr. and Mrs. Jack Peel, long- time residents of Pilot Point, will move to Durant, Oklahoma, where he has become associated with an electrical company.

The oil test on the George Owens farm, Ponder, is drilling in a sand at around 1100 feet, and the test, "near Stony, is said to be drilling be- low the 1500-depth where a hard ]ime has been encountered.
