Holland won the showmanship award during the show. (Press Photo) Clarendon mourns Johnson's death BY LEE ANN PALMER Last Monday',Our President" passed away. This was the terminology felt by most of the people in Clarendon when asked about their emotions concerning the passing of form- er President Lyndon Johnson, "His administration did more for the farming and ranch- ing businesses than the present one -- to date. The man was strong and very decisive and wl'at's more, he stuck by what he believed in." These were Wayne Riggs' personal comments about the complications of Mr. Johnson's terms in office. In response to our questions Dean Beryl Clinton replied. "I was very pleased during his administration, I admired and respected the man greatly. We've lost a fine influence In our government." Mrs. Frank Phelan had these reactions, "He (Johnson) did a remarkable job. You can't remake what's been handed to you in Just five years. I really can't understand why they didn't perform an arterial transplant after the other heart attack, unless, of course, he wouldn't permit it." Harold Phelps reflected, "We have suffered a great loss. The man did so much for our country." "I think he did quite a bit for the average American citi- zen. We've lost a fine man. His foreign policies were com- parable to those of the lateF.D.R." were Mrs. Mary CookePs instantaneous responses. Jerry Lohoefer remembered the former President and his "devout concern for the common American. He had the people at heart. He was the one who introduced Medi- care for the elderly." David Croslin said he couldn't help but feel the pity of loosing two former chief executives in such a short time. "Two outstanding leaders are gone and it's a shame." "George Christian, my brother-in-law, was President Johnson's Press Secretary for the last three years. So as you would imagine, we followed his term closely," stated Mrs. Tommie Saye. "George felt that under the circum- stances, Mr. Johnson as doing what he or anyone could do and so do wet" Mrs. Viola Graham told us she was "very saddened. He was a fellow Texan. He was responsible for my school- lng. You know he directed the N.Y.A. in Texas which en- abled me to attend college." (The National Youth Admin- istration constructed during Franklin Roosevelt's Presi- dency). The program financially aided college-bound stu- dents during the years 1936 and 37." Bill Greene laughingly admitted, "The thing I remember most about President Johnson is when he became Presi- dent. Our entire line of Open Road Stetsons became L.B.J. hats and sold extremely well"I In retrospect we have indeed lost a great man. A man who fought for the freedoms of this country and it's people. I have heard it said that "great men are rewarded many times." For former President Lyndon Baines Johnson his honors will become two-fold. His deeds and thoughts will be preserved in annals of the finest country in the world Broncs beat Claude, Valley Hi Clarendon's Bronchos gained some momentum in basketball play over the past week, knock- ing off Claude, 54-50, Friday night and beating Valley tltgh G1-43 Tuesday night here.
