I saw your message last night, and it haunted me as I remember some
Selfs in Erath County. Searched Stephewnville High School annuals, back
when it only had 3 grades, and finally found one in a 1949 Annual of
John Tarleton Agreicultural College "Grassburr" (Now Tarleton State
University) annual. and Jackpot, there was a photo of H.L.SELF,
Assistant Professor of Animal Husbandry, with a B.S. Degree from
Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas , (now Texas A&M University
at College Station, Texas). Tarleton State University now has campuses in
Stephenville, Killeene , Texas and Thurber , Texas in the old Ghost town
of Mingus. They also have courses at McLennan Communith (Jr.)
College and a degree can be earned in Waco from Tarleton on the MCC
Campus, mostly. I was a squad leader in ROTC at Tarleton , and Franklin
Conger was in my squad. When he passed away, his mom asked for a
military Funeral. Other members of my Squad were Paulbearers and Tarleton
Wainwright Rifles Fireing Squad fired a salute over his grave . They
even had a Tarleton Cadet to play "Taps") on his trumpet, not like some
fakes today who hold a trumpet to their lips while a recorder plays
"Taps". Ewell Jones updated us on history of burial as we took turns
standing guard at the Funeral home in Stephenville
Boy, this one drove Spellcheck crazy.
