A meeting of the executive board of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas was held today at the home of Mrs. Max Urwitz in Houston. Many affairs of interest and importance were taken up, among them being the matter of purchasing a portrait of Davy Crockett to be hung in the Alamo. Miss Adina De Zavala is still working to acquire the Alamo mission and make it a hall of fame and museum of Texas. She has collected a great many interesting objects, including a heavy glass decanter picked up on the battlefield of San Jacinto by J. P. Jones of Milam County.
