Accident On The Electric.
The electric car in charge of conductor
"Deacon" Smith and motorman Walker crashed into
a road cart on Daugherty street in Webb City, yesterday
afternoon; Ed Molyneux of Webb City was seated in the
vehicle and was quite badly hurt in the smash up.
His horse became frightened at a pile
of brick and balked on the track whirling the cart in
front of the car. Motorman Walker checked the car but
could not stop entirely and Mr. Molyneux was thrown out
and a deep gash cut in his head. He was picked up
unconscious and Dr. McBride called. The crew of the car
was not to blame for the accident.
Motorman Walker has not been with the
road long but he is rapidly getting the reputation of
being unlucky on account of his numerous mishaps. After
the accident yesterday Supt. Fitch changed his number to
15 to avoid the subtle spell of evil.

dont suppose the early writers of
cartoons had any idea of the impact there
work had on the children (and adults) viewing
their work. Nowadays, of course, it seems
that everone is concerned over the
content of cartoons.
Im thinkin that
one of the differences tween
todays animation on Saturday
mornin tv is that now its written
more for kids. The old cartoons had more
adult humor in em.
I doubt that kids
understood full the frustration of Yosemite
Sam or the Coyote, or the satisfaction of
Bugs or the Road Runner in their inevitable
escape from doom.
Course no one thought
anything about Porky Pig or Donald Duck

This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
wonderful new Membership Show will greet you when
you visit the Hyde Gallery! Our opening picnic
last Friday night was a great success, attended
by about 80 artists and guests who consumed most
of the barbeque beef and pork, beans and
potatoes, slaw and deviled eggs and a multitude
of great desserts! Thanks to all of you who
brought those desserts! There was just the right
quantity and selection, and the small remaining
amounts of desserts, eggs and meat were shared
later with the Crisis Center, who were most
pleased with the delivery. I wish to thank all 60
member artists participating this year, and think
that the selection of art is exceptional for
quality and variety and medias represented. Our
judge, Sally Baird from Springfield, was most
impressed with our area artists, and spent much
time deliberating. Her choices included, First
Award and a cash prize of 500.00 to Carthage
artist Brenda Sageng for her unusual two-panel
oil painting entitled "WAITING FOR
REDEMPTION", Second Award and a cash prize
of 300.00 to Gregory Krepps of Pittsburg, Ks for
his ceramic "SCULPTURED VESSEL", and
third award and a 200.00 cash prize to Jim
Bilgere of Carthage for his oil painting
"BASIN ST. BLUES". Beth Simmons of
McCune Brooks Regional Hospital chose "DARK
TUG WITH CANTALOUPE", an oil painting by
Larry Clingman, Bixby, OK for the
Underwriters Award. We congratulate all
four award winners, and thank once again the
judges for taking their time to judge this year.
Most particularly, I want to thank my board of
directors who gave of their time that day to set
up, and then stayed to clean up, Don and Susan
Knost, Dean Vandergriff, Miriam and Wayne Putnam,
and Mary and Steve Beimdiek,--- sincerest thanks!
Other board members sent food, and our thanks to
Helen Kunze for the yummy eggs. This show will
remain in the gallery weekends through July 11th,
and call for exact open-times through the holiday
