Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH Yi i Y AS IT k 81ST YEAR, NO. 356 ABILENE, TEXAS, FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 8, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Aaociated PreM ONE [By Katharyn Duff] Mrs. J. C. (Chrystene) Hail Jr. of Loraine has almost made it. Come August she will receive 8 Bachelor of Science degree from Hardin-Simmons Univcr- tity. She calculates the degree is equal to: Eight hundred miles per se- mester hour; One hundred thousand miles in all; Or. one new automobile plus part of another. It is equal, too, to determina- tion on her part. (And. she Bays, to her husband and the Hall's parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Riden and Mrs. J. C. Hall Er.) Mrs. Hall's traveling educa- tional career began in 1SI55 when her son, Jamei A. Hail, entered H-SU. She decided to get some college work, too. James went straight through on the traditional schedule. (He was graduated in 1959. He was married to Barbara Mings of Seagraves, H-SU '60. and they and their 6-months-old son live in Faycttevillc, NX'., where he serves as first lieutenant in a paratroop outfit.) Mrs. Hall, however, hart an already busy schedule at home. She keeps books for the furni- ture-hardware store and the two farms she and her husband own and in season she does income tax work. So she set out to commute, taking night courses in the fall, winter and spring, day courses in summer school. old roads, over high- ways under construction, over plush new Interstate 20 she has driven to and from classes, back and forth. In lair weather and foul she has made I he with some stops, seemingly al- ways at Merkel, for storm clouds to pass. She started out with a new- car and hoped it vv o u 1 d see her through to the degree. But it topped and was getting unsteady, so she got a new auto last January. Most of the lime she has had riding with her other commut- ing students. Only one fiat can she recall suffering on the many trips. No wrecks. Except for 12 hours, her col- lege work has been "on cam- pus." Six hours she took by correspondence. She picked up three hours nt Snydcr, another three at Colorado Oily, both in H-SU extension classes. She has done it the hard way, and what about grades under these circumstances? With a 3.158 grade average, Mrs. Hall was elected to Alpha Chi, national scholarship organ- ization. Elementary education and English are her fields of study. But she is not an applicant for a job. She might be in the future. You never know. But the prime reason for her effort toward an education was simply this: She wanted her degree. A teen-nger overheard advis- ing a weight-gaining friend: "You used to have a good figure, dear. "But it's all behind you."
