Becky Hudson receives scholarship from Darlene Spler The annual Beta Sigma Phi Scholarshin was awarded to Becky Hudson this year.

Corner We were pretty well snowed in the first dozen days of the new year's but activities have increased consider= ably in the last few days. The new year's party was well attended, in fact, Gall Binkley, the contractor said, and we quote, "there's Just no way that this floor can hold up this many people," but it did and seemed no worse for wear. Monday, January 15, was the first real pretty day and the golfters came out of hiding. Almost as many men were seen getting their exer- cise as women. Even the Pro was warming up after vaca- tioning in Fort Lauderdale during the holidays. The course is in good shape for this time of the year. Fred Medley, the greenskeeper took advantage of the pretty weather by mowing the frog hair and fertilizing. The weeks activities included family night on Wednesday with a buffet and bingo. Phebe Buntin's name was drawn for the door prize. Members of Claude and Howardwlck seem to have more bingo "know how" than the local mem- bers. The Memphisttes didn't do too badly either. If you can make it out to the next family night, which is the third Wed- nesday in every month, you can get a free meal ticket everytime you Bingo if you have gone thru the buffet line before the callers begin the program. Cathrine Cain was hostess to the Thursday duplicate club and all enjoyed Mrs. Elmore's tamale pie. Maxine Hardin was high and Avis Benson was runner up. Madaline Slavin and June Palmer routed out all "The old Tuesday Bridge Club" for a bridge luncheon honoring Kaki ttrty. Half of these "girls" are working women led a holiday for this occasion. Remember the Country Club's buffet every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday noon. Just put your feetunder the table and leave the cooking to Mabel. Golfers have sliced, shanked, hooked, and whiffed down the 18th fairway of Clarendon Country Club, but John Wayne Stepp has out done everyone of theml Friday afternoon he came over the top of the hill in a fire truck with the siren screaming. Fire had gone out of control on the edge of the hazard and as it turned out John Wayne was only performing his duties as a volunteer fireman not as a golfer burning up the fairways with the scorching drivesl! Since it didn't snow last week and the slopes around Clar- endon were bare, Dean and I went to Red River, New Mexico, to ski with two friends from Dallas. The whole weekend was exciting and if anyone is debating about trying a trip like this, don't postpone it. IT'S GREAT!! Red River has its advantages. It's not too far from Claren- don. and a lot of the people we met were from Texas. We took Dean's pickup. I got to sit intheback with one of our friends and take the bumps and coldness. It wasn't bad until you start back with soreness seeping throughout you. We stayed at the Pioneer Lodge in Red River and had two double beds with a kitchenette for $18.00 a night and split the cost with the other couple. If you really want to conserve money for the ski slopes, take your own food from home. But who wants to cook on a vacation? We rented our skis and boots.The cost of these plus ski lift tickets for two totaled $23.00 for one day. Snowmobiles rent for $10.00 a day for two people. We may try these next time. First day skiers need to wear GLMs. These are short skis for beginners. No. special ski clothes were bought and all types were seen on the slopes. Dean was theonlyone I saw in insulated over- alls, however. It is hard to believe, but it does get hot out on the slopes and a knit turtleneck, sweater and quilted nylon Jacket provide all the warmth needed. Heavy ski socks are a MUST. You can really build up an appetite on the slopes. The eating places are really great. Wewent to theRed Onion for Mexican food, Texas Red's for steaks, and Frank and Polly's for break- fast. There's no need to take off the heavy ski boots and stop for lunch on the slopes. There is a cafeteria in the ski lodge that has great hamburgers (but they are expensivet) There is absolutely no telling who one might run into. We got stuck out on the highway coming into Red River from Angel Fire. A bus came sliding by us and got stuck too. We finally got our snow chains on, and took some of the injured kids from the bus back to Red River with us. They were high school band kids from . rlington and offered to fix us supper at their cabin. We took one look at their inexperi- enced faces and decided that we'd rather eat in townI[l So orEty has Mrs. Esta Celli of Stephenville, Texas engagement and approaching marriage of her Mary Katherine, to Roy Pat Perkins of The wedding will be at St. Brendan's Catholic ( Stephenville, Texas the evening of February 17 seven o'clock to be followed by a reception Dinner Club, Hotel Long, Stephenville.
