History in a Pecan Shell

With the widespread usage of the word cool, one would think that advertisers and promoters would be falling all over themselves going to Cool, Texas for endorsements from Cool citizens.

The Handbook of Texas entry for Cool, is slight, mentioning only the population and the date of incorporation.

The town was incorporated sometime after 1960 and by the end of that decade it had 506 citizens. It dropped down to a mere 21 persons for the 1970 census, which seems suspiciously low since the 1978 population was back up to 253.

Perhaps the census enumeratorís file should be checked.
