Advocate (Newspaper) - September 6, 1964, Victoria, Texas DEVOUR CULINARY SUCCESS When Dinner Bell Rang, They Just Served Pie---A Six Tonner DENBY BALE. England The great pie of Deiihy Dale, largest ever seen in this home of raon- sler pies, emerged In tri- umph from its oven Satur- day and was promptly de- voured by waiting throngs. For 36 hours its six Ions of heef, potatoes, spices and crust, had naked ami bub- bled in Hector Buckley's barn, overlooked by a herd of cows, including the moth- ers of sonic of ils ingrctli- cuts. As eating lime drew near, Ihe pie, on ils IG-whccler trailer, started a ceremoni- al journey to the field in which Denhy Dale has eat- en pie for at least two cen- turies. Pipe, brass and jazz hands heralded Its progress. Behind cumc a dozen floats devoted to the theme that Ihe next most appetizing thing to a pie Is a prclty girl. After a blessing from (he village parson and a hymn in memory of four Den by pie organizers killed in a car crash, the crust was cul. From Ihe interior of the massive pie dish rose a magnificent aroma. Thou- sands lined up for a morsel. It proved jieerless pie, rich and spicy wllh enough salt to generate an ade- quate thirst, and a crust ex- actly the right shade of brown, Its culinary success was Indisputable. Commercial success, how- ever, was In some doubt. The crowd of to ooo fell below the vast as- semblage for which the vil- lage committee had pre- pared. Enough was there, however, to demolish Ihe pie, which was divided Into portions and sold at 10 shillings a piece, including the price of a commemorative plate. Denby Dale, a Yorkshire village otherwise known for Ils fine worsled clolh, has been making great pics since the 18th century. The first, in 1788, cele- brated a temporary bout of sanity on the furl of King George 111. The second, 27 years later, greeted Bri- tain's victory over Napole- on. The 1887 pic for Queen Victoria's jubilee went bad and is recalled with a shud- der by the village elders as the "high pie." This year's pie was the eighth, and was larger than any seen before. 11 cele- brates the four royal births of 1961, among them Queen Elizabeth's third son, Prince Edward. The pie survived reported threats of sabotage, which Dcnby suspects originated in the neighboring village ol Clayton West, where they specialize In giant puddings. 11 survived, too, Ihe haz- ardous descent of a hill called Bomb Pickle, a hill so steep that one previous pic overturned and was trampled to death by the pie-crazed crowd. The steel dish holding the latest pie measured 18 feet long by 6 feel wide and 18 inches deep. Now lhat Ihe pie Is eaten, the pie com- mittee hopes to sail the dish across the English Channel.

The fiscal 1901 year books were closed with million left over. Requests for the 1966 and 1967 fiscal years added up to increase of million. Where's Money? This sels the stage for the 1965 legislature, where one of the main problems again will be: Where to get Ihe money to pay the bills. The million balance, budg- et officials say, probably will be repealed next year. This would give lawmakers a head start on 1966-67 financing. But, Lt. Gov. Preston Smilh points out, "This good news is quickly tempered by the realization thnt normal growth increases for education alone will consume Ihc S70-S60 mil- lion surplus automatically and leave a ?50 million gap."

But he didn't rule out the possibility lhat the draft may be halted next year. This was the highlight of a 35- minute news conference in which Johnson announced some notable military and nuclear advances and, in a statement of philosophy, urged that all Americans resist "the spirilual cancer of hate."
