RAW MATERIALS OF FEUDS:
Dogs, Hogs, Juries Set Southerners to Fussin' and A-Fightin'

Prof. Vezzani Returns from Mexico
After Helping Develop New School

What touches off a family feud
in the South?
Prof. John E. Tracy of the law
school who was reared and edu-
cated in Tennessee, says it can
happen something like this:
"Someone shoots another man's'

dog, and the owner shoots the
man who shot the dog, and the
other man's relatives shoot him
and maybe someone is caught
and hanged.
"Every boy in each family is
brought up to know that all the

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETINj

members of the other family are
his enemies. Every time the fam-
ilies get anywhere near one anoth-
er, as in town on court days, there
may be some hot words. someone
will start shooting and the feud
is on again."
One of the most bitter feuds,
Tracy recounts, "was between the
Hixons and the Gosses. It started
generations ago, so long ago that
no one ever can rememoer how
it started. But it lasted and lasted
and every Hixon hated a Goss and
every Goss hated a Hixon.
"Gradually the Hixons began
to lose out. A number of them got
killed off and others didn't pro-
duce many children. Finally there
were only two male Hixons left -
two brothers in their late teens,
Virgil and Lon. Virgil went out
to Texas where he later died a
natural death.

"Lon stayed on the old place.
He courted a very fine girl down
Burgess way, Lizzie Tollet, a
school teacher, and they were
married. Lizzie taught all of her
big flock of children as she
couldn't risk sending them to a
school attended oy the Goss chil-
ren, and they got a fine educa-
tion. Everyone hoped the trouble
was over.
"But when Lon was about 40
years old, he was called into town
to serve on a grand jury which
had been called to investigate
some hog stealing. When Lon
found out that it was probable
that the guilty person was a Goss,
he asked to be excused from fur-
ther duty but the judge would
not let him go. Goss was indicted
and arrested, but let out on bail.
"A few days later, Lon stepped

to the door to see why his dog was
barking. He fell dead with a bullet
in his heart. The murderer was
never known, but everyone in the
community knew it must have
been a Goss.
"The morning after the funeral,
Lizzie loaded all the children and
household goods into the wagon
and started out for Texas where
Virgil's widow lived. She said
the feud musn't have a chance
to continue any more. Since she
wasn't born a Hixon, she could be
the one to make the decision."

Prof. Almando A. Vezzani, of
the vocational education and
practical arts departments has
just returned from a 30 months
s;tay in Mexico City as chief tech-
nical adviser for the development
of a new school.
The Centro is maintained for
the training of operators and me-
chanics of highway construction,
transportation and farm equip-
ment.
Technical assistance is provided
by the International Cooperation
Administration through an agree-
ment, signed in- April, 1954, be-

tween the Mexican and United
States governments.
Prof. Vezanni feels that the
Centro, which hasbeen cnniidered
higThly successful as a for eig-n aid
program, plays a most important
role in cementing good nc ighbor
relations with the Republic of
Mexico.
Subjects taught at the Centro
range from shop theory and ap-

plied physics to instructions on
how to apply for a job and social
security union regulations.
All students must have com-
pleted the sixth grade before en-
tering the school. A majority
come from underprivileged fami-
lies, but the middle class as well
as the upper class are represented
in the school.
