This 5 t cen-per-hourmt Provided a / PLAIN FACTS ABOUT SIMPLE FUNERALS Isn’t it time we started to stress the spiritual aspects of funerals rather than the material? Many people spend more on funerals than the deceased would wish because they do not realize their options or they are afraid of “what people will think.” At Reveley Memorial Services we explain your choices, and let you know we are in agreement with your desire for simplicity. No pressure is brought upon you. Many times all arrangements can be completed at your residence. Reveley Memorial Services offers you the following possibilities: A service at the location of your choice, with or without the casket present Graveside Services in the cemetery of your choice Cremation Donation to medical science Shipping We have a selection of caskets, including a cremation receptacle, a plain pine coffin, cloth covered woods, or metals. We can travel anywhere, and serve a 100 mile radius of San Antonio at no additional fee. We believe that money lavished on funerals should be spent on your family, your church, or your favorite charity. Discuss this with your family now, while you can. Call us for pre-need planning, or any information you may need.

The Communist Party was semi-legal. Whether the authorities worried about us, I don’t know. I think I joined the Party about 1937. Elizabeth Gurley Flynn was a member of the IWW, and she didn’t join the Communist Party until 1937. Your Communists were at the forefront of the struggles. There are wonderful descriptions in The Romance of American Communism [by Vivian Gornick]. There are very bureaucratic people following in line and looking at it as purely an economic struggle. Then you had people who found that, standing on the lines or going down and picking vegetables or tomatoes or something like that, it was possible to be human. Here’s some guy from the city who’s never been on a farm, and no matter how he tried he could not get enough tomatoes that day to take some home. So as the people he worked with went around, they filled his basket one, two, or three times. The idea of sharing, of helping this was brought into the Communist movement. You could see it in the labor struggle the sacrifices that were made, the number who went to jail. Continued next page The $10 Program We invite organizations .arid individuals to sell new one-year Observer subscriptions. For each subscription the selling organization or individual will receive $10 commission. Like most publications, the Observer spends almost that obtaining a new subscription by mail. We prefer, however, that the money go to hard-working groups or individuals instead of to the post office and paper companies. Organizations and individuals authorized to sell subscriptions under the program will be provided with forms and sample copies. The only requirement is that individuals who wish to try this must have their own subscription paid up at the regular $20 rate. Commissions on subscriptions to be billed will be paid on receipt of the bill payment. Neither renewals nor subscriptions for a period shorter than a year receive commissions. If you want to take part in this program, contact the Observer at 600 W. 7th St., Austin, Tx. 78701 or phone 512-477-0746. No PAC’s or campaigns, please. THE TEXAS OBSERVER 13
