Transcript 4 _________ u. s. s. Houston- 422- 39 900 Last of the Cattle Barons Located on the huge Coast high­way between Houston and Mexico there lies one of the most remarkable spots inTexas. There the highway of modern concrete runs abruptly into a high, stoutly built barbed wire fence guarded by a Mexican vaquero who definitely will not let anyone pass. He is ready to enforce his · order with all the implements of the Old West- ­namely a .30.30 rifle and a Colt .45 revolver. This is the usual reception of :: 1 traveler at the border of the two greatest ranches in the world- the King and the Kennedy ranches. Their combined area is approximately 1,200, 000 acres. Here on these two vast ran­ches runs nearly 102,000 head of cat­tle. There on the ranch of the Kings­the last of the great Cattle Barons of the West is making his stand. There in a huge house, whose walls are three inches of reinforced concrete; cleverly concealed to look like the old adobe of the Spanish Conquistador, lives the guiding spirit of the ranch empire. He is not the old baron one would would think, but an extremely intelli­gent man, graduate of the University of Texas and a member of the Con­gress of the U. S. His name is Con­gressman Dick Kleberg. 0'. Answers to Questions on Page l. A Scotchman is a piece of iron with a ring attached seized to the shrcuds.

THE BLUE BONNET I Promise to Write " I promise to write", Ah, that phrase Is quite forgott,; r; In a few days. A port is reached After days at sea; And all go ashore, For a few hours liberty. Boy meets girl. Its all so old. It's happened before; It's all been told. A few days of heaven, A few days of bliss; Then comes the parting, To be sealed with a kis~. Tender farewells are Held the last night. The girl is tearful. The boy? " I promise to wrIte". " I promise to write". Of course he cares. He'll always remember her. Of that he swears.
