The Burnet Bulldogs were up against the Austin B. team. It promised to be a fine game and those who planned to attend would have the chance to see what Burnet fans could expect for the football sea- son. Tickets were on sale for the game at Edgar Flower and Gift Shop. The Cub Pack Meeting was to be held September 6 on Dr. G.S. Allen's ranch located on "State Road 29" toward Bertram. Parents and sons were urged to attend the meeting, which would consist of "an exhib- it, stunts, a picture show, and an all-around good fellowship." Each family was to furnish a picnic lunch and provide some- thing to drink. An exhibit was also on display at the Lone Star Gas district office in Lampasas. Paintings by seven nationally known Southwest artists were going to be displayed for two days (September 6 and 7). The paintings were as follows: "The Provider" by Jerry Bywaters; "Betty In Gray" by Emily Guthrie Smith; "In the Canyon" by Fred Darge; "The Water Hole" by Perry Nichols; "A Texas Sky" by Olin Travis; and "Long Ears of Big Bend" by Otis Dozier. The paintings were purchased by Lone Star to be award- ed in January 1952 to dis- trict offices with outstand- ing customer service records during the last half of 1951. The lakes in Burnet County drew a large crowd of people over the Labor Day weekend. According to rports, the fish were not biting too well. It was thought this fact could be blamed on the hot weather. No seri- ous accidents happened, despite heavy traffic on the highways. Because of the intense heat, most local citizens tried to spend the holiday in a cool place at home. However, such a place was hard to find as the "temperature on many thermometers reached a high of 108 degrees." An advertisement for the Texas Theatre announced the movies which were playing the week of September 6. "Comin' Round The Mountain" was playing September 6 to 7, "14 Hours" played September 8, "Fort Worth" played September 9 and 10, and "Cry Danger" played September 11 to 12. Motorists were remind- ed that the fee for Texas Operator's and Commercial Operator's licenses were to be dou- bled effective September 7. The increase was autho- rized by the 52nd Legislature. The new price for an Operator's License was $1 and the Commercial License was $2. The fee for a Chauffeurs License remained at $3. The Operator's permit was valid for a two year peri- od, while the Commercial and Chauffeurs licenses issued were for a one year period only. In "Local Items", it was reported that Mrs. Troy Gibson "and baby" had returned to their home in Austin after a weeks visit with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Piper. "Rev. and Mrs. Troy Brooks, home missionaries of the Baptist denomination, working in Arizona and Utah, spent a couple of days last week visiting relatives in Burnet." Mr. and Mrs. Upton Frazer and their daughter Sally, had arrived the previous Sunday from their home in Arkansas. Sally was to remain to enter John Tarleton College at Stephenville for the com- ing year. Mr. and Mrs. John Garner and Mr. Elbert Shelton were in Nacogdoches for Labor Day weekend, where they attended the wedding of their niece, Miss Dorothy Shelton. Mr. and Mrs. Homer Baker and daugh- ters, Miss Leta and Miss Delores Baker were back home after a visit with their son and brother, Pvt. and Mrs. Hollis Baker in E1 Paso, and Mrs. Baker's sister, Mrs. J.W. Mills and family in Bisbee, Arizona. Major John Paul Stapp, a former Burnet boy who was doing scientific safety research in the army, had recently taken a spin in a Jet propelled plane with- out a canopy, traveling faster than sound. The following was a "card of thanks" which was printed in the paper: "We want to thank every- one who helped give the nice premiums in money and gifts to us for getting the first bale of cotton in 1950 and 1951. We really appreciate it. Adolph Naumann." Bartley Food Market advertised their specials for the weekend of September 7. Sales includ-, ed: "Tide or Cheer--large pkg. 27 cents; 5 lbs sugar 47 cents, 10 lbs sugar 93 cents; Liptons tea--l/4 lb 29 cents; Bama Peach Preserves 42 cents; Clorox--1 qt. 15 cents; cig- arettes-popular brands-- ctn. $1.84." The front page stated: "If you happen to see the Bulletin Editor kicking Dr. Chas. Craddock around the square in the next few days, don't get the idea that we are mad at Charlie, for we are not--we are just carrying out instructions of Mr. Fred Poole of Houston. In a letter just received from Mr. Poole he asked us to do him this favor, and we always like to please our customers--look out, Charlie!" And that was the September 6, 1951 edition of the Burnet Bulletin. )mes 12-7564444. Marble Falls: 512-693-5808 Flower & Gift Shops 109 N.
