TO CORRESPONDENTS -- When writing letters to Big Hat's department for publication, write on one side of the paper only. Printers never turn their copy, and the editor has no time to rewrite half, or even part, of your letters. Give your full name and address. Anonymous letters are never printed. These rules are imperative.
EDNA WATTERS, Wilmer, Tex. -- Good evening, Mr. Big Hat and cousins: As I have never written to your paper I will now make my first attempt. I go to school and study fourth reader, history, arithmetic, language, geography and spelling. I have two sisters, one older and one younger than myself. I love to read the cousins' letters.
LULA WATTERS, Wilmer, Tex. -- Mr. Big Hat and cousins: As I have never written to your valuable paper I will now make my first attempt. I enjoy reading the cousins' letters very much, that are so interesting. I am going to school and like my teacher. I study Texas history, algebra, grammar, physiology, geography, United States history, spelling and arithmetic. I have two sisters, but no brothers.
