Rosscr THE BOY SCOUTS have been busy around town the last couple of weeks selling tickets to the annual corn bread and bean supper next Saturday night. Don't forget the date. t t t INSURANCE BUNILDINO - The new quarters of John Nabors and Ed Hutcherson have a couple of unusual attractions. One is the "community window" at the front of the building, which was designed especially to display posters and other material of community groups. Today it is displaying Little Theater publicity, next will be Easter services, then Hospital Auxiliary Tea information, and so forth. A very nice accomodation. Inside, a portion of the south wall has been framed in paneling to preserve the handmade brick from an earlier era of Winnsboro history. Finger print of bricklayers, a possum's track and other interesting signs can be read on the wall. t t t MRS. WILL WILSON was In town Friday on behalf of her husband's candidacy for governor on the democratic ticket. Wilson married the former Marjorie Ash-croft of Sulphur Springs in 1948. It was Mrs. Wilson's second marriage. Her first husband, a fighter pilot, was killed in action over France in World War II. "I did some campaign work in local politics when I was 18 in Sulphur Springs, and I've been interested in politics ever since," she said. "Every campaign is new to me. My first admiration for Will resulted from his cleanup of crime in Dallas. I was very impressed and I wrote him a fan letter and told him so." t t t COUNTRY CORRESPONpENTS of The News have been doing a fine job for their communities. One of the most faithful is Mrs. H. G. McCown of Clearwater, who submitted her column last week but it got "lost in the shuffle" after it got to the office. No fault of Mrs. McCown. t t t W. D. RICHARDSON, who came here in 1943 on a two weeks assignment, completes 35 years service with Gulf Refining Co. on Saturday, April 14, as well as 19 years service with the pipiline division in the Winnsboro area. A fact that few know is that Mr. Richardson's step - grandfather, who had a farm near Hawkins, was an early Wood County sheriff. t     t     t C. A. HARRIS of Dallas visits his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Harris, on various weekends. He is involved in. some fascinating work in The Dallas Morning News stereotyping department and is on the team which has a great deal to do with the color work in the food section. .U J. J. I      I      I STUDENT   APPOINTMENT   - Miss Ccceil Netlyona Robinson, daughter of Oscar Robinson, Dunbar School principal, has been offered an appointment as a student trainee in the summer student trainee program of the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies in Oak Ridge, Tcnn.

In response. Mayor E. L.

(BOB) MOTTLEY Managers named for summer play program Registration cards for children who plan to participate in the Winnsboro Summer Recreation Program must be sent in as soon as possible, states Joe Duffield, director. Deadline was set for April 10 but due to slow response an extension of one week has been added. It is very important that the . program director receive these cards in order to arrange a meeting with managers to select players and organize teams. At the next meeting of the newly organized Wood County Leagues it will be necessary to know how many teams from Winnsboro plan to participate, so that the schedule for the coming season can be prepared. It is imperative that the teams be organized and ready to begin league play no later than May 29, because Winnsboro will again be associated with the Texas Teenage baseball Association and league play must be completed no later than July 24. This season promises to be one of the best ever   for   the youth  of our   community,   so: please get those cards in so that teams can get organized. Managers for the coming season will be as follows: Teen Age Team, Lee Lanier; Sophomore Teams, Wayne Thomas, Jim Bob Wylie. Lonnie Lanier and Tince Cox; Little League, John Keeling, Keith Light,   Earl   Brown, Harold Tipps and Burt Wheeler; Pcewec League, Bill Hudson, Bob Harris, Darvin Edge, Dillard Wells and Bob Crow. Girls Teams: Managers are still needed for some of these teams. If you are interested please   contact Joe Duffield. There is a dire need for three or four sets of new uniforms for the coming season. Two business men of Winnshoro have volunteered t."> purchase uniforms which will bear their firm's name. Should anyone else be interested in doing likewise please contact one of the directors. There seems to be some question concerning the wording on the registration cards. The purpose ot these cards is to protect the directors and anyone associated with the program against being sued. This is the sole purpose of the registration card other than parental consent. Please! Please! Please! Send in those registration cards. Duffield announces that R. C. Jarred has given the program 20 sacks of Red Star Fertilizer, The plant food will be used to improve the grass on the baseball diamonds. Dr. Craig W.
