Sponsor of the group, which will be seen in action in the high school gymnasium beginning at 8 o'clock, is the Kellerton Lions Club. TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: The Texas Cowgirls Professional Basketball Team barnstormed throughout the country from the 1940's through the 1970's. Most of the girls joined the Cowgirl team right out of high school upon recommendation of their coaches. A few were found through scouts. The girls ranged in age from 19 to 24 years. Traveling in a station wagon, the team normally cover about 70,000 miles per season, playing every night and sometimes twice on a Sunday, about 150 games. The team played men's rules. The team sometimes toured with the Harlem Globetrotters.
