' V > - THE INFORMED CONSUMER BY CRAWFORD C. MARTIN Attorney General of Texas If you have purchased a franchise or you are seriously considering investing in a franchise business, there are certain questions which you might ask to determine your chances for success. First, who is the franchisor? If the franchisor is well known, has a good reputation, and has an obviously successful fran- chising operation, you have a better opportunity to succeed in your business. Occasionally, a dishonest promoter will use a franchise name and trademark deceptively similar to those of a well-known franchisor. Be skeptical of franchisors whose major activity is selling fran- chises and whose profit is pri- marily derived from these sales or from the sale of franchise equipment. Remember, the more information you learn about the franchisor and the successes or failures of indiv- iduals who have purchased his franchises, the better prepared you will become to make an intelligent decision. Second, y...

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD STATE i y B,U fiOU,N AUSTIN — New guidelines for conduct of the state's first publicly-financed primary elections are due to reach local election officials'this week. Secretary of State Bob Bul- lock, as chief Texas election officer, drafted the rules in line with a federal court a- mendment to the decision out- lawing filing fees as proposed in a 1971 law. Bullock interpreted the latest order as authorizing the state .vjp foot the bill for primary election costs. He said an earlier opinion permitted use of nominal filing fees to regu- late length of the ballot but not as a revenue-raising device placing a wealth requirement on candidacy. The chief election officer ordered this mandatory filing fee schedule for both Democra- tic and Republican candidates (or an alternative nominating petition signed by qualified voters): Statewide offices, $400; U.S. representative, $300; state senator, $150; chief justice or associate justice, court...

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 16 Miss Canales Campaigning As Candidate Raza Unida, a Mexican-Ameri- can third party, said Tuesday it will field candidates for major state offices, Including gover- nor and lieutenant governor. Raza Unida organizer Mario Compean said the party's can- didate for governor will be Ramsey Muniz of Waco, Tex., a Corpus Christi native who is working toward a law degree. Seeking the lieutenant gover- nor's post will be Alma Ca- nales, a journalist and free lance writer from Pharr, Tex., Compean said. Miss Canales is a native of Edinburg. She worked for The Edlnburg Dally Review, Rio Grande City Herald and Ya Me- ro> a Spanish language paper. Compean, a founder of the Mexican-American Youth Or- ganization, said both Muniz and Miss Canales have been active in MAYO. Muniz helped organ- ized MAYO in the North Texas area, Compean said.

MAIL Inaugurating tne UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE JULY 1 1971 A Lefter To The Editor To the Editor: I read in the Feb. 3 issue of the Rio Grande Herald that you support Ralph Yarborough for U.S. Senator. . . HURRAH FOR YOU! I remember when I was in Mission High School, Profes- sor Sid Hardin was explaining a law that was advantageous to wage-earners. Explaining that employers were supposed to pay a certain amount of money to employes who were injured while on the job. We asked how many students believed the law to be fair. No one raised his hand! The professor laughed and said, "The reason none of you raised your hand is be- cause all of you think that when you grow up you are going to be executives. But when you grow up you will find that only a very small per cent of you will be executives. The major- ity will be wage-earners. Then you will agree that this law is just and fair. . . . And sure enough, t...

, . !:. The drawing above was taken from a photograph of a biologist who was calling elk by whistlingthroughhis teeth. He was able to simu- late the "bugling" of the bull elk during the rutting or mating season, and on the occasion that I was with him he called in over twenty bulls . . one within fifteen feet of where we were hiding. There are many people who think that those of us with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service are capa- ble of "talking with the animals", but it is nothing more than just observing what is around you. Just as I learned from the bio- logist how to call elk, you can learn the "wildlife man" how to enjoy our na- tion's wildlife and wild- lands.

The quiet of a Peking Sunday was transformed into nightmare. At Versailles, the United States, bowing to an ally, agreed that in the peace settle- ment following World War I the Japanese should have the "rights" relinquished by de- feated Germany in China's Shantung Province. That ne- gated the bright promises Americans had held out for self-determination and rights of peoples. Chinese intellectuals were furious. Students representing a dozen or so colleges and univer- sities had been meeting that morning on how best to show their fury. In the afternoon, thousands of students poured into the streets. Delegations called on various diplomatic missions, including the U.S. le- gation. The anger mounted. Students began crying for the blood of traitors. They meant the Chi- nese officials they ac...

CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports RIO GRANDE HERALD Thursday, February 17,1972 Page 16 WASHINGTON, D.C. - Texas Is exceedingly fortunate in the number of House committee chairmanships held by Repre- sentatives from our State. There are twenty-one of these committees, and four of them are headed by Texans. No other state holds as many chairman- ships. In fact, only two-- California and New York — hold even half as many. Furth- ermore, the committees headed by Texans are among the most Important in the House. Certainly that is true of the Agriculture Committee, one of the two committees on which I serve; its chairman is Bob Poage of Waco. (My other com- mittee is Merchant Marine and Fisheries, of which I am the only Texas member.) The highly powerful Appropriations Com- mittee has as its chairman a West Texan, George Mahon of Lubbock.
