Journalism From Back In The Day

 

 

      This is old school journalism. I remember some of the teachers I had showing films in black and white like this one in classes I had but on different subjects. It brought back some old memories from back in my school days. I had to share. 

     I did take a journalism class in high school (the early 1970's). I don't recall my journalism teacher showing this film but I do remember a film she showed on war coverage. The only other thing I remember about this class was my teacher drilling "to be objective and fair" in reporting news. It seems to me they just don't teach this kind of journalism any more.

On August 15, 1944, the 3rd Division entered Southern France. Shortly afterwards, Murphy's best friend, Lattie Tipton, was killed by a German soldier. Murphy went into a rage and single handedly wiped out the German machine gun crew that killed his friend. Afterwards, he used the German machine gun on nearby enemy positions.

Murphy was promoted to Staff Sergeant, he was wounded in the hip and spent 10 days recovering. Upon returning to his unit, he became company commander.

On January 26, 1945, the battle at Holtzwihr began with Murphy's unit's strength of 19 out of 128. He sent his men to the rear while he took pot shots at the Germans until he ran out of ammunition. He proceeded to an abandoned, burning tank (U.S.), using its machine gun on the German infantry. Murphy was wounded in the leg during heavy fire, he kept on firing. Murphy stopped when his telephone line to the artillery fire direction center was cut. Murphy's remaining men came forward and hi directed his men in a counter attack.

The Ghost Riders of Neches River

     Farmers and cowboys were sworn enemies during the beginning of the range days. It was no wonder eight Texas cowboys herding 3000 head of cattle got mad when they saw a fence as far as the eye could see blocking their progress to Abilene, Kansas. It didn't help these eight cowboys deposition being sore and tired either.

     For a while, the cowboys muttered among themselves getting anger and anger. They started to dwell on the punishment they could inflict on the farmer.

     So when the farmer came out of his house near Neches River with a shotgun, the eight cowboys saw their chance to inflict punishment. The cowboys took their positions around the herd of cattle, quickly sent the cattle into a stampede.

     The farmer scurried about and ran towards his house. He made it inside and warned his wife and two children then ran back out of the house. The farmer shot at the raging cattle, heading towards him to give his family time to get away. He had emptied the two barrels of the shotgun before is trampled to death. The cattle stampeded through the house killing the farmer's wife and two kids.

     Not one of the eight Texas cowboys showed remorse for their heinous misdeed. As a matter of fact, the eight cowboys bragged about the incident to their compadres, laughing about it, and toasting their nasty deed to others in Abilene. They were hailed as heroes for a month among their confederates.

     But once the Texas cowboys crossed over into their home state, they were showed no mercy. They had dreams of angry bulls with burning eyes, saw the ghosts of the family they murdered. These rough and tough cowboys were turned to whimpering cowards and unable to work anymore on cattle drives. Of course, none of them lived long after their return to Texas. The cause of their death varied among the eight from gunfights to suicide. One had drunk himself to death. The last of the eight died in 1875.

     A strange thing happened after the last cowboy died of the eight. Ghost riders started to appear on the Neches River. "They came just as the sun was sinking low on the horizon, when the immense Texan sky was a scarlet-streaked dome and the Neches ran red like a river of blood to the southeast...The ground beneath began to rumble, and the whole landscape started to shake. Up above, on the southern horizon, a group of what looked to be thick red clouds suddenly appeared, moving north at great speed. In the span of a few seconds, the clouds were overhead and were no longer clouds but a herd of angry cattle, driven forward by 12 masked cowboys. They roared over the Neches River in a terrible rush, the whole landscape shaking in their wake. And then, in the next instant, they were gone. They vanished suddenly in the dim evening sky, leaving not a trace of their passing."*

     If you are wondering why I put this Texas folklore on a blog talking about actors, music, TV series, etc. it is because this folklore pertains to music. The ghost riders of Neches River was immortalized in 1915 by country singer Stan Jones in his classic song "Ghost Riders in the Sky".

     If you never heard the song, your in for a treat. Here is my favorite video of the song. Enjoy.

 

*************************

*I found this story in 'Ghost Stories of the Old West' by Dan Asfar. The story is on pages 78-83. The words in parenthesis are the words of the author of the book. There was no way I was going to mess with the beautiful words that described the scene he wrote of the ghost riders.

Oh Lord, It's Hard To Be Humble By Mac Davis


Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

When you're perfect in every way.

I can't wait to look in the mirror

Cause I get better looking each day.

To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

But I'm doing the best that I can.

I used to have a girlfriend

But she just couldn't compete

With all of these love starved women

Who keep clamoring at my feet.

Well I probably could find me another

But I guess they're all in awe of me.

Who cares, I never get lonesome

Cause I treasure my own company.

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

When you're perfect in every way,

I can't wait to look in the mirror

Cause I get better looking each day

To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

But I'm doing the best that I can.

I guess you could say I'm a loner,

A cowboy outlaw tough and proud.

I could have lots of friends if I want to

But then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd.

Some folks say that I'm egotistical.

Hell, I don't even know what that means.

I guess it has something to do with the way that

I Fill out my skin tight blue jeans.

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

When you're perfect in every way,

I can't wait to look in the mirror

Cause I get better looking each day

To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble

But I'm doing the best that I can.

We're doing the best that we can
