L. Barter, 64, former captain in the Texas Rangers. The Rangers deserved all their fame. Small in number but long on bravery. they did more than any other group of men to bring order to a lawless State. Though their glory is still great, they are now only a small part of the Department of Public Safety. But in the wide open spaces of Texas they are still a power. Bader used to know famed Judge Roy Bean well (see p. 71). For a panorama of Texas, scenic, economic and social. see page 64.
