r000000Hit or Miss='==00 'i  say howdy to a few people. Since my old stomp!ng grounds-are in [ when you go above S0 on an Oklahoma road. Which brings up another point--very few people were taking their lives in their hands Saturday. It might be that Oklahomans are either more patriotic than Texans, or just naturally slower drivers. Evidently it is the latter choice, since Oklahomans have been driving SO since time immemorial, since hitting chugholes at more than 50 really messes up your car. ?  Anyway, ! got there more or less when 1 should have, and started visiting people. One of these people I visited was my high school English teacher, who got me started in journalism in the first place. One of her kids asked me if ! was "the journalist.' l :ration agreed that, in a manner of speaking, I was. A little bit later, from the back of the room, the same kid called to his mother.

Another thought I picked up there: President Nixon cannot be impeached. He's already been impaired. One thing I did get from the trip was an appreciation of Mr. Nixon's anti-driving edict. Driving Sunday was a dream. Very few people were one the road, and most of the time l could look both ways and see nobody on the road. There was just a bit of a hassle getting gasoline Sunday morning, but I did manage to get the tank full of the combustible little stuff, l didn't have the presence of mind to fill up Saturday night, so I had to get up at an awful hour Sunday morning to search for an open gas station. Jiffy stores had closed pumps. Truck stops had closed pumps. But finally, an independent service station (Wimple's Bait Shop) hove into view, and that is where I filled up. It even added a little bit of excitement to things, not knowing if 1 would be able to get back to Texas. However, everybody pulled up to the station at the same time I did. They must have been following me, figuring that if anybody could find gasoline, a Texan could. On the way back I did not drive 50 miles an hour, but 1 never do. Had I not gotten gas Sunday morning 1 would have gone SO, but I wanted to get back to Clarendon in time to see part of the Cowboy game, and there is a stretch of road by Memphis I did not want to drive in the dark because 1 drive worse in the dark than I do during daylight. And I drive terribly during the daylight hours. Speaking of roads, I never fully appreciated Clarendon's roads until ! got a refresher course in Lawton's streets. Here in Clarendon, you can find yourself going along at 30 and suddenly whee! you plummett downhill then uphill then downhill then uphill, scraping'off various protions of the undercarriage of your car. The intersection at Sth and Ellerbe is especially dangerous, because the dips are disguised in such a manner that you'never see them until it's too late to do anything but go wh.ee! But in Lawton, you can find yourself going along at 30 and suddenly clunk! you are in a pit several feet deep. If you get out of this pit you find your front wheels are running at a 90 degree angle to each other, instead of parallel like they should be. So an occasional whee! is just a bit better than a bunch of elunk's. Drainage is another good thing about Clarendon's streets. In Lawton after a heavy rain, there are spots where you can go swimming in the mifldle of the street. Actually swimming. ,'e s BuildO publiC!
