The music was broadcast live from Cain's Ballroom beginning in 1935. Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys became one of the top musical attractions in the country, popularizing pop, hillbilly, blues, Mexican and fiddle music known as western swing.

In the late 1930s, Wills and Mayo took over the lease of the Cain's Ballroom. Mayo bought in 1944. Mayo was also involved in the movies and short subjects Bob Wills made in Hollywood in the 1940s, and was often the announcer for the Cain's Ballroom broadcasts, which were assumed by Johnnie Lee Wills and his band after Bob left for the West Coast, with the Wills brothers. Mayo also was an originator and co-producer of the Bob Wills Tulsa Stampede, which was once one of the major rodeos in the Southwest, began in 1939. In 1943, Mayo and several other area show-business figures formed Hey Rube Inc., an organization that financed free stage shows for military men and women.

In addition to being a renowned western-swing music figure, Mayo was a past member of the convention committee of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce and worked with the Delta Lodge and Akdar Shrine. He also served as chairman of the Tulsa State Fair's Riding and Roundup Day and was one of the first Oklahoma directors of the Cowboy Hall of Fame. He also wrote or co-wrote several songs that were performed and of recorded by Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys and Johnnie Lee Wills and His Boys.

His most famous composition, Blues for Dixie, was a nod to his birthplace of Booneville. A new version, done by Lyie Lovett and Asleep at the Wheel, was released to radio earlier this year. Both Bob and Johnnie Lee Wills died before their manager. Bob Wills' death occurred in 1975; and Johnnie Lee's in 1984.

MRS. L. L. MCDOUGAL SR.

Funeral For Mrs. McDougal Held Monday

Death came swiftly to a beloved matron of the community last Saturday afternoon when Mrs. L. L. McDougal Sr., died of a heart attack.

She was ill only a few minutes, having expressed particular enjoyment in her lunch to a friend upon her return to her husband office where she was engaged with some accounts for the day.

Mrs. McDougal came of one of the county's long-established families. She was Miss Loula Bell Smith of the New Hope community where the Smith family has been identified with the best traditions of the community for three-quarters of a Century.

As the wife of the late Dr. McDougal she was first a helpmate to him in his profession, and next a mother of rare wisdom and discernment. Only this summer she had flown to New Haven, Conn., for a month's visit with the eldest son, disregarding limitations of age or convention in choosing the air for travel. Her enthusiasm was a tribute to her youthful attitude and flexibility of mind. She was seventy-three years of age.

A few years ago Mrs. McDougal served as president of the Northeast Mississippi Medical Auxiliary, an organization of doctors wives which she participated in loyally. She also held membership in the state organization, accompying her husband to the annual meetings with devotion and interest. Mrs. McDougal also gave worthy support to local club work, endeavering to contribute more than she took from a group.

Mrs. McDougal is survived by her three sons, Dr. Myres s. McDougal of New Haven, Conn., Dr. L. L. McDougal, Jr. of Tupelo and Smith McDougal, also of Tupelo; two brothers, Andrew Smith and Arthur Smith of this county and four sisters Miss Pearl Smith of New Hope, Mrs. J. E.

KAREN LEE MCNUTT

Memorial Service For Karen Lee McNutt

Karen Lee McNutt was born July 28, 1947, in Mem­phis, to the late Milford and Louise McNutt and lived most of her life in Millington, TN. She passed from this life on Dec. 22, 2002, in Jackson, TN.

One of the highlights of Karen's life was visiting in the home of her grandmother, the late Lula McNutt of the Mid­way Community, south of luka. So it was only fitting that she be remember by those who loved her and with those, that had gone on before.

Her uncle, the Rev. Jerrell L. McNutt of Auburn, AL con­ducted the service on April 17, 2004, at the South Crossroads Baptist Church Cemetery near Midway.

Early in life, Karen had trusted Jesus as her Savior, so this was a celebration of life and of the perfect person she has become. We did not grieve as those who have no hope. Rev. McNutt read an original poem, "A Farewell for Kay Mc­Nutt", and gave each one pre­sent the opportunity to shale memories of Karen. The ser­vice concluded with the singing of two of her favorite hymns, "No one Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus" and "Oh How I Love Jesus", followed with prayer by Sam Oates, Jr.

Among those present were her sister, Rita McNutt Wilson of Millington; cousin Sam Oates, Jr., of Ft. Lauderdale, FL; aunts, Juanita McNutt of Tishomingo, Vera McNutt, wife of Rev. McNutt of Auburn, AL, Christine McNutt Oates of Jacksonville, FL and Mamie McNutt of Belmont.

JOHN Q. MELTON

A Good Man Gone

John Q. Melton was born June 15, 1838, in McNairy County, Tennessee, died near Rienzi, in Prentiss County, March 10, 1898, and was buried in Piney Grove Cemetery.

He moved to Mississippi in 1865, made a profession of faith in Christ under the preaching of Bro. Ham Savage, and connected himself with the Hinkle Creek Baptist Church in 1866. In 1874 he moved to his present homestead and assisted in organizing Piney Grove Baptist Church and was among the first members of the organization. After moving to Jacinto, he transfered his member­ship to Jacinto Baptist Church in 1892 and was a faithful member of the same till his death. Bro. Melton was a good neighbor, an affectionate husband, a loving father and an exemplary Christian. He was a zealous worker in the Sunday School, and in all church work.

He was without fault, and I am sure he would not want me to say he was if he was living. Yet all who knew him will realize that the cause of the Master has lost an earnest supporter, but he has gained his victory.

Bro. and Sister Melton reared a large family, and he lived t to see them all grown and members of the church of Christ, save one the baby, a boy of 13 or 14 years, and then he fell asleep in Jesus, and left the friends who mourn him here to join the loved ones gone before, But Brother we shall greet you there where Christians meet to part no more.

J.O. Looney Jacinto, Miss.
