SWEET MILK FOR TRUMAN -- The Dallas County town of Truman is christened with a quart of sweet milk in honor of the nation's President. "There are lots of Baptists among our citizens," explained Mrs. E. H. Hopkins, secretary-treasurer of a newly formed community improvement committee. Immediately behind the sign are S. M. Hart and J. N. Price, while at extreme right is Dr. Sam L. Scothorn, other members of the committee which also includes Grady Dickson, W. M. Morris and B. E. Thompson. A congratulatory telegram was received from President Truman, and the first mail to the new town was delivered by Jack McDonald, champion bicycle rider.
