Owens family pack ages the sausage that has filled the breakfast needs of hungry Texans for 50 years exists as unlikely a collec tion of miscellanea as is gathered anywhere in the Southwest.

Not confined at all are more dalma- tions with more spots per acre than anywhere else in Texas. Owens’ 60-acre Spring Creek Farm, where the gate is always open, is a children’s delight, given the tendencies of the mule to jump, the horses to nuzzle and the llama to nibble at outstretched hands. With thousands of school children romping across the farm annually to become acquainted with the ani mals, the Owens family this fall added a four-room, turn-of-the- century museum designed to evoke nostalgia among adult visitors. Because “some things are just worth doing and some things are just worth preserving,” Jerry Owens, 45, president of the com pany his father founded, maintains free admission. And, at age 75, C.B. Owens still walks among guests to explain how he acquired the brass calliope or any of several wood and leather-padded carriages. And he revels at recalling how his hogs made it all possible. “You get hungry and you have to start something to make a little extra money,” he said. “In ’28 times were pretty hard. You looked for anything to make a little extra money. “I was farming. I’d made two crops (1926-27). This was just some thing on the side. You could buy a big hog in McKinney for $5 on trades day. Then I sold the sausage for 17 cents a pound and had money in my pocket.” Today Owens distributes sausage and chili in seven states and em ploys 400 persons. Campus Names F Grad students given $1,250 in awards Three Texas A&M University graduate students have received scholarships totaling $1,250 to support their studies of logistics and transportation.
