In next week's column you will learn how the Paleface Ranch got its name. Have a nice week. Born in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., in 1928, and brought to San Antonio by his parents when he was about eight years old, Mike Levi attended school at San Antonio Academy and Texas Military Institute. He attended college at the Univer- sity of Wyoming, majoring in philosophy. He says that his father believed that everyone should have a liberal educa- tion. After being graduated from college, Levi entered into a partnership with a friend of his father in a feed lot busi- ness in Arizona. The elder Levi thought that his son should learn the feed lot business. Then in 1952, Levi joined his father on the Paleface Ranch, where he was given a very ac- tive part in the management of the operation. His father had been giving him rdspon- sibilities on the ranch since he was in his teens and coming to the ranch during summers. "Dad sort of threw me out to the lions and told me to get with the program," Levi says. "He turned me loose selling my first bulls when I was 16 years old." Mike Levi is an urbane, ar- ticulate, graying man of medium build with a strong in- terest in politics. He feels that more people should take an ac- tive part in politics, but says that he has never been able to convince many of that. He is a Krueger anti-gun To the Editor: During the senate election debates, Bob Krueger advo- cated repressive new anti-gun laws that will impact severely on the rights of honest citizens to own guns. I am a law-abiding gun owner who is fed up with professional politicians who keep trying to take away my right to own a gun. For that reason I will be voting against Bob Krueger on June 5. I urge all gun owners who wish to retain their right to own a gun, to vote Krueger out on June 5. Donald N. Baker Got something on your mind?
