Now he is nil avowed candidate for Qov- einor of the state.t Ami he is also, and newly, a novelist. His new "These Are My Peoplo.'V release by Ihe Naylor Co, bf San Antonio oh Friday, tomorrow. He is nol, we are sure Mr. Pormby would agree, 'a Hem- ingway. But his novel is-packed with history of'that part of Texas which lies just under the Cap Hock. And it Is peopled by men and; worncri whose names are easily recognized by all who live la West Texas. The scene is laid in Dickens County and the small town of Dickens and the time is 1946. The novel is built around Imaginary lead characters, young David Mitchell who is torn by the postwar decision whether to start work on his grandfather's smalltown weekly newspaper or start work on the Dallas Morning a school teacher-secretary, Glenda Wells, helps him decide; arid the grandfather, Dwight Mitchell, pi- oneer editor. Others in the novel arc real and they are good people. The only black characters are two oil swindlers creations of Formby's. "These Mrc'-My People" will be required reading in Dickens, McAdoo and assorted neighboring (owns, required be- cause these folk are liable to have the thrill of seeing their own names in.print.- The Spur notary fcliib must read it, One chapter Is on one of its meetings and the guests that day Jim Reed, 0. B. rtat- liff, Oscar McGin- ty, Nichols and the rest. Other names are scattered' through, Clifford B. Jones, Al- ton R. E. Dickson, county commissioners, grocers and men on the street. Ope whole chapter of the book Is indeed a memorial to I he late Sen. Harlcy; Sadler as Formby has. his characters tell the story of the little showman who charmed smalltown audiences a generation ago, ,who went oil to ehjoy; a', political career. Some" of: Formby's- political thinking comes out of the mouths of his characters as they men- tion highway development, the need for belter pay for-school teachers back in '40, mention even the battered and muchly amended Texas Constitution. But Formby's novel is essen- tially history of this part of West Texas. He tells of the-pionoer- iiig and Ihc development of the land, of the ranches, the Mata- dors and the others who lamed the country. As footnotes through the book F.ormby uses recipes which are typically Texan, ranging from Hopkins County stew of East Texas'through that great tra- dition of the west, Texas Son- of-a-Gun. 1 We stand corrected, Our Wednesday column said there Was only one polygraph ma- chine, [arid one 'operator here.
