    In 1954, while a Senate committee in Washington, D.C. was deciding that comic books were leading children to juvenile delinquency, the Texas school systems were reissuing a Texas History Movies reprint as a classroom textbook to school children throughout the state. This time the Magnolia Petroleum Company reverted to the digest paperback format measuring 5 ¼" wide by 7" tall. At 128 pages, this edition collects 248 of the newspaper strips running them two to a page just as the hardcover edition did. This edition stayed in print for several years and had various similar covers. At least one version, although noted as copyright 1956, has had the text in the last panel changed to read: "And Texas has reached the estate of 1959." This indicates that the book was still reprinted and used in classrooms until that time.
    that would be about right, 1959 ... before those awful '60s.
