MATLOCK SISTERS, TWINS, AWARDED CLASS HONORS BY FROST HIGH SCHOOL IN 1929

In the picture above are left to right Miss Clifford Matlock, valedictorian of the senior class of the Frost High School and her twin sister Miss Phyllis Matlock, salutatorian of the same class.  These girls are the daughters of Dr. and Mrs. Jno. W. Matlock of Frost.  Do they look like "book worms?"  They are anything else but recluses.  They were never known to miss a social function or to pass up opportunity for any kind of wholesome fun.  Throughout their school life they have been active in all extra-curricular activities.  Their power of concentration is somewhat remarkably developed.

They come of a family of children who have maintained a high standard of scholarships. Miss Miriam Matlock, oldest sister of "the twins" graduated with honors from the Frost High School and later graduated with highest honors from C.E.A. at Denton. She has also worked with distinction in the University of Virginia and will begin work this summer in the University of Texas on her Master's degree. Dixon Matlock, a brother,  graduated with honors from the Frost High School and is now a student in the University of Texas. There are three others of the family yet to graduate from the Frost school.

It might be said that the mother of "the twins" has seen to it that the domestic side of their education should not be neglected.  They can sew and cook like professionals, and when "the servant is out" they frequently take full charge of the household responsibilities and discharge them with credit.

Commencement exercises will be held Friday night.
