Auto Hit by Freight Train
Art Foster's big Studebaker car
is practically a total ruin as a re-
sult of being hit by a fast freight
train last Monday evening at the
railroad crossing about five miles
west of Texhoma. The accident
occurred while Mr. and Mrs. Foster
were returning to Texhoma from
their ranch, about six miles west of
town. In attempting to cross the
track ahead of the train, before the
car was across, the motor went
dead and the car could not be mov-
ed before the freight struck it. Mr.
and Mrs. Foster got out of the car
in plenty of time to escape injury.

"Just an Enthusiast"
A Social Outing
Help our soldiers by helpingRedCross
One often hears the expression
when refering to another who has
waxed eloquent on some subject
near to his heart: "Oh, he is just
an enthusiast; you must not take
him too seriously." Yes, just an
enthusiast, but what a wonderful
thing is enthusiasm! Dead men
have it not. It is the exclusive
possession of LIVE men—of men of
power, of dynamic force. It is hard
to imagine what this life would be
without enthusiasm. Be an enthu-
siast in your daily business; in
municipal, state and national affairs
Be an enthusiast in everything you
undertake, in everything you ad-
Enthusiasm is not a gift. It can
be acquired by any normal person.
It does not take the place of will
power, but is the ligitimate child of
the will. Given the desire to sue
ceed, enthusiasm can be cultivated,
and when once acquired its power
is limitless. Enthusiasm is not
the exclusive 4ower of youth.
Some of the brightest minds the
world has ever known have carried
it down to the Valley ot Shadows.
Neither is it the qeculisr heritage
of genius, for many of the world's
greatest benefactors have been
people of mediocre gifts, but ob-
scessed with a burning enthusiasm
for accomplishment. Therein lies
its greatest lesson. All may possess
it, and with its magic power no
life need be a failure. The stren-
uous days through which we are
passing call for unbridled enthusi-

Texhoma Reds Break
Even With Hansford
Famous American Flags
On Friday of last week was stag-
ed an interesting game of base ball
between the locals and the team
from Hansford, Texas. The Hans-
ford boys came with the intentions
to win—and they did. The game
was interesting throughout the en-
tire nine innings and it was any-
body's game until the ninth when
