com mitment to his music that is uncommon in the commer cial world Pamell grew up literally on the lap of the legendary Bob tee Roy Pamell Wills He leans on the memory of the man he first gang with as a yearold boy on a Fort Worth radio station Parnell credits Wills influence on his decision to pursue music but Ws teenage years found him studiously delving into the work of artists ringing from the AJJman Brothers to Muddy Waters and Freddie King The diversity of experience and influence that are Lee Roy Pamell have served to shape this native Texan into one of the most respect ed and innovative

Elizabeth Elliott Lets face it As much as we love this place we call home and as much as we dont mind bragging about what a unique and wonderful city New Braunfels is we could very happily do without the attention a certain upcoming visit is bringing to our com munity A good many people have searched both sides of their brains for the best possible way to handle the KKKs most unwelcome arrival on the first of June The con sensus from church and gov ernment officials has been to ignore the vipers in our midst to stay home to let them know how it feels to throw a party to which nobody comes Its called and that sounds like a winner to me But I confess that I thought it might greait to have as many of us whWared to form a handholding ring around the downtown plaza with our backs to the gazebo making a strong silent statement that the Klan could see Of course a few weeks ago Roger Croteau came up with an embellish ment of my idea It was rather humor ous and we need more of that laugh ing our troubles but there arent many of us brave enough to follow his moonstruck suggestion Anyway you can add my vote to staying but for more reasons than nonsupport of the Klans phi losophy of Christian white supremacy and the desire to prevent ugliness erupting in our town We need to be aware that the best reasons begin in the attitudes of our hearts and the insight of our minds MY CURRENT TEXTBOOK Those attitudes and insights can be found in many religious beliefs and spiritual philosophies since Time began indeed Life itself is one lesson after another But lately I have a new text book You cant prepare a stage production without dissecting and analyzing the script first And though the one Im working on is an upbeat summer musi cal theres a strong wonderful mes sage that undergirds all the humor and the footstomping songs Its a message that answers the sick kind of thinking that diminishes any human being because of race or creed In traveling through Big there is a moment when Huckleberry Finn has an astonishing Hes been riding a raft down the sissippi with Jim a runaway slave sharing all kinds of close calls with him and slowly but surely becoming his friend At one point when Jim talks lovingly about his wife and children and his need to be free so that he can buy his own family the big black man weeps from pain and longing Huck turns aside and says to the audience It dont sound natural but Jim cares for his people just as much as white folks dofbrtheirn 5 bringsHucTcto strugglewith his conscience hes been taught all his life that those who help slaves to get free are dirty abolitionists and are doomed to go to everlastin fire Well Huck breaks down and prays about his consterna tion but as he says You cant pray a lie So I says to myself Would feel better if you give Jim up No Id feel worse And whats the use in leamin to do right when its trouble some and no trouble to do wrong and the wages is just the same So all right Ill go to hell Ill take wickedness again and steal my friend Jim out of slavery What joy Mark Twain must have had poking fun at judgmental self righteousness and through a boys confusion teaching us that the love of our fellow human beings is the only right that matters Elizabeth Elliott is a guest colum nist writing on the arts and humani Do You Suspect In Your Waters SYSTEMS Maybe its the smell that gives it away
