Old Couple Picks
Bale Of Cotton
W.E.CIaiv.han is trying to
claim the honors of ginning t
bale of cotton picked by the old-
e t con pie in Washita County, the
bale in question was pickrd bj
Grandpa and Grandma E.W.B.
Caniun. Mr. Cannon is £6
years old While his wife is 1<
'/ears hiu junior, they raised am
picked this bale of cotton off ol
ess than one acre, the worl
oiirg done entirely by them.
When dad first got the family car
He very firmly swore:
‘Now, twenty miles is fast enough —
I’ll drive that and no more.
And if you boys do more than that
Pll tell you v. hat I’ll do—
I’ll never let you drive again.”
And dad sure meat it, too.
Then dad looked hard at Peru and me:
“If some speed-crazed galoot.
Who’s doing fifty miles an hour.
Around you starts to shoot
You just ease over to one side
And let the demon by.
A man that drives a car so fast
Is trying hard to die.
But since dad’s learned to feel at home
When he’s behind the wheel,
At times that human thrill of speed
Will o’er nis senses steal
And he will turn to us and shout:
“This old boat’s sure alive!”
And then he’ll start to give her gas
Tiil she hits fiftj five.
And wh-.n he lets us drive a trip—
That is, lets me or Ferd—
lie sits with mother back behind
And never says a word
Until another car comes up
And honks and tries to pass.
Then dad w ill jab < ur backs and she ut;
“Hey, there! Step on the gas!”

under either of the exemptions men-
tioned, then you are alright, if not it’s
just too bad.
