Created by Gary (Texas) High School students, this publication presents articles about Tex Ritter and Audie Hestilow. The first article, "Tex Ritter's Early Days," provides information on the early life of Tex Ritter gathered through an interview with Earl Cariker, a biographer of Tex Ritter, and through newspaper articles. Earl Cariker describes the Murvaul (Texas) and Gary (Texas) communities in which Tex Ritter grew up. The second article, "Audie Hestilow," presents an interview with Audie Hestilow that was conducted by Lynn Burlbow. Hestilow, a barber, met Bonnie and Clyde one night while they were escaping from the police. While Audie Hestilow was a barber with the army in California, he became friends with Norma Jean Baker who would later be known as Marilyn Monroe. After the army, Hestilow established a barber shop in Austin (Texas) where he continues to work. (CK)
