Clarksville Times (Newspaper) - July 11, 1977, Clarksville, Texas
The Clarksville times monday july la i77 Page 3 random rambling color us hopelessly outdated. Label us Ultra conservative. Diagnose us incurably patriotic. But to news sequences of two groups celebrating the fourth of july in their own Way signifies to us. At least much of what is Good and what is bad in this country. The first showed a smoke in at a Washington. D.c., Park across from the White House. It featured Long haired bearded Barefoot topless hippies in sagging Blue jeans furiously puffing marijuana in open Defiance of the Law. Capitol police Quot by agreement Quot kept spectators at a distance. These characters Hung from statues of our National heroes blowing pot smoke at the cameramen and defying anyone to arrest them. No one did. Of course. The next to shot showed Brownwood. Texas celebrating with a great big old fashioned fourth 200 . Flags waving in the Breeze around the Square Plain americans and their families enjoying themselves. The main attraction was Anita Bryant Lovely in a frilly dress looking every Inch a girl and proud of it singing songs about America and god and of incidents in our country a history. If its time to stand up and be counted Point us in the direction of Anita and the Brownwood folks ring at e Oaks y Edith i Van i attic s director leaders of nations must make Many momentous decisions which Are never easy. Thus we sympathize with the Queen of England in a recent edict which must have been agonizing for her. From time immemorial britons everywhere have paid their respect to their majesties with three cheers responding to a leaders a ship hip. Hip a with a rousing a a Hurrah repeated three times. Now h. M. Has let it be known that she prefers a a Hooray to a a Hurrah. The Queen is perceptive anyone who has Ever tried a rollicking cheer in a stiff Breeze knows that the hard a a a of a a Hooray is much More resounding than the a a aha of a a a Hurrah thanks to a hip hip Hooray Queen. We admit to utter boredom in watching to baseball in these Days an aversion apparently shared by others. A fellow editor recently opined that he had not for some reason watched a game in years. He did tune in on a Rainy saturday a week or so ago and said that after watching a dreary nine innings he remembered Why he had quit viewing in the first place. We think interest in the grand old game is Best typified by an incident with Dick Risenhoover who announces the Texas Ranger games on radio. He was recently so overcome with emotion during a game he collapsed and was rushed to the Hospital with Low blood pressure Low mind you not High exciting huh let us hasten to give credit to the ladies of the Good Earth Garden club for their work during the Winter in the Center of the Square.
