MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Another busy week for the museum. Sunday we held our annual student art show with over 100 people attending. The meeting room was at capacity. first,second, and third place cash prizes were given out to students in K-2, 3-5, and 6& up. The art categories were Photography, Painting, Sculpture, Drawing, Mixed Media. Avrie Black, Follett won first place in Painting and Best of Show.

We congratulate all the students who participated and to their parents and teachers for supporting their efforts. This exhibit is always one of our favorites.

We finally have our train back in place and will be having it operational in the near future.

Our next exhibit will be one by Doug Ricketts and he is keeping it a secret as to its nature so it should be exciting and one you will not want to miss. His exhibit will be from March thru April.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

The following article appeared in the Feb.22, 1917 issue of the Lipscomb LimeLight:
The Biggers Prairie dog law which was passed by the Texas legislature two years ago provided that all of those little animals would have been transported to dog heaven by any route most expedient by July 1st, 1917. In case the land-owners fail to comply with the law, the county commissioners are required to have the dogs exterminated and the costs assessed against the owners. Many prairie dogs have been killed but there are still thousands that are far from dead and it looks as though the commissioners of the counties in West Texas would have a chance to charge up a lot of costs, next summer.

The little animals still survive and thrive on our plains and have towns through the Panhandle. Till next week.
