The rural traffic accident summary for the 60 counties of the Lubbock Department of Pub- lic Safety for November, 1971, shrews a total of 576 accidents resulting in 20 persons killed and 292 persons injured.

Sewell, Officer-in-Charge. According to the USDA's Con- sumer and Marketing Service, 317 samples were classed this week bringing the seasons's total to 2,970. This compares with 66,000 samples classed by the same date last year. Quality statistics fro the week ending December 10, 1971, show a slight decline in quality of the cotton classed. This is due to the increase in {he amount of slx>tted cotton received. Thirty- five per cent graded in theSpot- ted grades compared to 21 per cent last week. Twelve per cent of the cotton graded in the white grades, up two percentage Points over the previous week. The predominant grades were Strict Low Middling LightSpot- ted- 34 per cent, LowMiddllng Light Spotted- 16 per cent, and Strict LOw Middling Spotted- 25 per cent. Thirty-four per cent of the cotton classed was reduced in grade due to berk and grass. The predominant atltple lengths show: 6 per cent ~l's, 47 per cent 32's, 31 per cent 33'$, and I0 per cent 34's.

It is powered by the same engines' that are used in huge Jet planes. At one time when it was driven by Craig Beedlove, It reached a speed of 614 miles per hour! A year before this, when he was at- tempting to set a record, he put on his brakes and skidded 6 miles, the distance from Mun- day to Gore[ Pawnship - Where everything they own is theirs, Knox City Man It is said that the true joy of Christmas comes from shar- ing with others. If this be true - and we be- lieve it is -there is one Mun- day family that is experiencing the true joy of Christmas more than ever this year. They are sharing with their neighbors and townspeople, and with all who might pass their way, a wonder- ful and unique Christmas dis- play that graces the from yard of their home in Munday. People come by to seethedis- play, u, view d,e nativity scene, with the Christ child in the manger being the center of at- traction as he is being wor- shipped by the wise men of old. They see "Frosty, the Snow- man," made by hand; yet, so realistic that from a distance the snow actually seems to be melting. They bringthe children to view Santa Claus in his sleigh, drawn by reindeer, and with a well- filled packofChristmas goodies for the little ones. They see Head: Carl C. Norman Of 91 Held Tui sday Carl Cllnt Norman, 69, of Irving, Rule farmer and land- owner for many years, passed away at 7:25 a.m. Monday in Haskell Memorial Hospital, where he had been a patient for eight days. He had been in failing health for several years. Funeral services were held at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday from the First Baptist Church in Rule with Rev. H. H. Sego, pastor, Rev. Walter Copland, and Rev. Leonard Molone offlclatlng. Btlrlal was in Rule Cemetery under the direction of Pinkard Funeral Home. Serving as pall- bearers were James Jones, No- lan Lees, Billy Norman, Dale Gibson, Don Gibson, C. W. Mc- Kelvain, Dub Garth and Weldon Norman. Honorary pallbearers were Delma Williams, Emmet Ea- kiP.s, Carl Medord, Jake Wheel- er, Melvin Miller and L O. Morgan. Born April 20, 1902, in Rule, Mr. Norman had been a resi- dent of the community until JUly 1971, when he moved to Irving. Mr. Norman married Flo- rence Barton Jan. 12, 1924, in Haskell.

At the time of his installation as Grand Master of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Texas, Senator Jack Hightower announced the appointment of David Counts of Knox City as District De- puty Grand Master of the 91st Masonic District. As such, Counts will be the direct con~ct between Masonic Lodges of the district and the Grand Master. Hewill serve nU~ lodges as their represent- ative to the Grand Lodge for one year. They are: Seymour, Mun- day, Goree, Knox City, Roches- ter, Rule, Haskell, Throckmor- ton, and Woodson. In making the appointment, Hightower said: 'q appreciate the fact that Mr. Counts has agreed to serve Masonry in this position. His active particiPa- tion In community affairs proves his qualification for this place of service. An active Mason for many years, he has served the Ori- ent Lodge at Knox City as wor- shi~ul master and in other capacities. He operates and in- su_rance agency in Knox City. DAVID COUNTS many viewers. They see an angel seated at a home-made organ as she ap- pears to be playing Christmas carols. They actually hear the carols by pipe organ music-, a hidden stereo that makes the music seem to be coming from the organ's pipes. The "Star of Bethlehem" has been placed just abovethe large picture window of the living room at the home of Mr. and Mrs. ~rl B. Little. These and others things are seen as people start driving by, then stop to marvel at the beauty of it all. Beautiful, yes--but what's so unique about it? That comes from the fact that all the displayed items were made by Earl Little. All An- imals, people and other objects were cut out from patterns by means of a jig saw. The organ was made from scrap materal around the home or in the gar- age. Tin cans became flood- lights. The rocket ship is of art- icles he picked up here and there and stuck on top of each other. And so they took on form as he whiled away the hours in his workshop, which is act- ually his garate. His tools consisted mainlyofa paper hanging brush, the jig saw, a portable acetylene weld- er hammer, pliers and screw- driver. Our guess is that Linda, and maybe Debbie, had a part in painting the objects. He started this project almost ~wo months aheadofChristmas. The Ltttles have been resi- dents of Munday since Feb, 1956, when Earl became employ- ed by The Munday Times as our floorman and primer. When ~e ~old the paper in 1965, he con- Unued for a few months, thenac- cepted employment in Tulsa, Olda.
