It ts my favorite month of the dependent on the whims of markets and the fickleness of nature, year, and I always long to be where the trees are red and gold interspersed with evergreens and colors more subdued in a balance of beauty that only God knows how to create. October is that mixture of summer and winter, steeped in the essences of each, that brings out a feeling of deep contentment and warmth of soul, yet hints of excitement and promises rest. October on the farm is a busy month in Texas. Farmers are harvesting grain sorghums and hay crops, doing the year's last plowing, sowing their late wheat and beginning the cotton harvest. This is the time, these last three months of the year, when a farmer comes to grips with failure or hails success for his year's work. His crops are ready for harvest, and his rewards, always can at last be calculated with certainty. It is dlfficnlt to behold the sorghums heavy with grain and the limbs of cotton stalks bending low from the weight of green and open bolls and realize that not all farmers are blessed with such an abundant crop. One can look at the crops in our vicinity and wonder how the nation can have a shortage of so many products and a scarcity of foodl We may lack the riotous colors of the tree-covered hills and valleys of more easterly regions, but our corner Of God's footstool is beautiful in other ways. There is a golden quality to the October sun, a deep rich sheen in the foliage of growing things, the lovely paler green of young wheat, the redolent scent of freshly turned soil, the long rows and wide fields of brick-red maize, the contrast of white cotton fluff among the leathery green of old leaves, bales of sweet hay dotting the shorn fields, cattle grazing placidly on the lush acres of early wheat -- all these beauties and more under a turquoise canopy and blended together by the musky aromas of autumn. tt Figures ttt like these ttttt ... to represent the people who make up our great group of customers.., do not appear on our balance sheeh.., but they are our most valuable assef The kind of people who like our kind of service are the cream of the customer crop. If you're not one of them, join them and enjoy the best company. HE DONLEY COUNTY STATE BANK Clarendon, Texas The yards are ablaze with fall flowers and brilliant berries. The abundant rains have left verdance everywhere. All the processes of nature are stepped up to a feverish pace: weeds that grew to tremendous heights earlier in the year now seed at four inches high; spiders frantically spin their last gossamer creations which sparkle with rainbow droplets in the morning sun; the supplies for the winter; man outfits himself with all the accoutrements of winter and sees that all equipment is readied and protected; animals grow long and heavy coats of hair or fur; and the earth itself turns away from the sun to cool the fires of summer and let the sap run down. But there are other manifestations of October: gusty winds from the south and east, bringing high humidity up from the stormy gulf; the first northers stealing in to mingle chilly atmospheres with warm, wet air, condensing the moisture and bringing rain; and rambunctious thunderstorms throwing their last "Sunday punch" before winter defuses them. If one walks in the ripening fields, the leaves that look so beautiful from the highways are etched with brown veinings and speckled with white splotches, disclosing the havoc wrought by half a year of high winds and beating sand and the ravages of insects. Maize leaves are split into dry ribbons that rattle in the wind and are streaked with the discolorations of disease and infestation. But, Hike beautiful old people, those wasted stalks and leaves have spent themselves in yielding fruit to be used and enjoyed by other beings and are the progenitors of countless others like themselves that will nourish and sustain life as long as the world stands. Thank you, Lord, for the harvest and for beautiful October[ I"IgXAS A$$Oel TIO Panhandle Press Association West Texas Press Association The Clandon Press Is pnbllsbed seml-weeldy every week of the year, at 204 South Keamey Street In Clarendon, Texas, 79226 The Clarendon Press Is entered as secmnd elms matter In the U.

Broncho JV takes 20-15 win over Claude Thursday night, the Broncho Junior Varsity traveled to Claude and brought home a 20-15 victory over the B team Mustangs. Clarendon started the scoring in the first quarter on a 3-yard run by Larry Shields, but the extra point try failed. Claude tied it up later with a short dive, and the successful kick gave the Claude B team a 7-6 lead. Before the half ran out, Clarendon jumped back in front when Larry Shields returned a kick 85 yards for a touchdown, and Tony Wallace's extra points run gave the Clarendon crew a 14-7 lead at the half. In the third quarter, Tony Wallace swept 80 yards for the touchdown that put the Clarendon lead to 20-7. The try for the two points missed. In the last stanza, the Claude team shortened the lead on a touchdown pass and two-point run which made the score 20-15. Clarendon kept the Claude Junior Varsity at bay the rest of the game to preserve the win. Mrs. Neweli Rice was visited last weekend by daughter and son-in-law Elmer and Virginia Sowder of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
