But they need someone to get them started for a year or two. Several Observer friends have from time to time made it their project to see that the Observer reaches a steadily increasing number of library users. Two subscribers continue to send each month a check to be used in this campaign, and last year fifty three-year library subscriptions were entered by another generous supporter. If you find in the list a city which is a sentimental favorite or is of special concern . . . or if you want to be indiscriminate with your generosity and make a random selection . . . then we invite you to provide a source where the community can find a valuable supplement to the views too commonly expressed in the local press by getting that library on the Observer habit: 1 year $6; 2 years $11; 3 years $15. \(As an indication of the extent to which your gift will be used and appreciated, a recent experiment involving the enclosure of subscription enevlopes in all library copies resulted in the addition of nine library Richland Hills Rising Star River Oaks Rockdale –Reelepet4 Rocksprings Rockwall Rosebud Round Rock Rusk -San-Angele-San-Benite San Juan San Saba Santa Anna Schulenburg Seguin Seymour Shamrock Shamrock Sherman Sierra Blanca Silsbee Silverton Sinton Smiley Smithville Snyder -SeflAre -Sour-hake Spearman Spearman -Spur Stamford Stanton Stephenville Sterling City Stratford Sweetwater Taft Tahoka Taylor Teague Temple Terrell –Tomas-CityTilden Trinity -Turkey Uvaldc Victoria Waco Waelder Weatherford -Weimar Wellington Weslaco Wheeler White Settlement Wichita Falls Wills Point Winnsboro Winters -Woodville- -York Please indicate if we should use your name in announcing the gift.
