I I 1 I 1 New Vaccine Being Tested For Treating Calf Disease THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 14 WESLACO—A promising new vaccine which could eliminate many problems associated with the present treatment for dead- ly bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) has been developed and Is now under test, according to Dr. Jerry Cowley, area livestock specialist for the Texas Agri- cultural Extension Service. BVD is one of the major eco- nomic problems of the cattle industry. Each year, Cowley said, an estimated 4,000,000 calves die from BVD and rela- ted enteric diseases. For years there have been vaccines effective against the ailment but up till now the treatment has been about as rough as the disease it's sup- posed to cure, especially in the case of younger calves where It hits the hardest, Cowley ex- plained. "Vaccines now used for BVD are made from weakened live viruses, which may cause se- vere post-vaccinal reactions, abortions and reduced milk pro- duction in cows and infer...

5 Bullock Urging Strauss' Defeat AUSTIN, Tex.— Texas AFL-CIO President Roy Evans and Secretary of State Bob Bullock have asked all mem- bers of the Democratic Nation- al Committee to reject Robert S. Strauss' bid for the party chairmanship because of his ties with John Connally. The two urged Strauss to get out of the race "if he truly puts his party above his personal ambition." They co-signed a "Dear Fel- low Democrat" letter to each national committee members in a move designed to counter what Strauss calls his image of "being the candidate of organ- ized labor and the South." "While Strauss is undoubledly a shrewd politician, his most consistent use of his talents over the years has been to ad- vance the political fortune and career of his close lifelong friend, John B. Connally," the letter said. Strauss, a Dallas attorney, was national party treasurer until the Miami Beach con- vention that nominated Sen. George McGovern for the presi- dent. Connally, former treasury secretary...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7. 1972 RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 22 New Shrine For San Juan SAN JUAN--Following his announcement Oct. 23 that the present facilities at the Shrine of the Virgin of San Juan -will be expanded, Bishop John J. Fitz- patrick of the Diocese of Brownsville Tuesday unveiled a scale model of the proposed construction during a press conference here. The model displays in graph- ic form the Bishop's plan to greatly expand the facilities for worship in the area, including a church surrounded by land- scaped walkways free of com- mercialism. "It became obvious," the Bishop told members of the news media Tuesday, "that more had to be done than mere- ly replace the building which had served smaller groups so well but which clearly would be inadequate for the future." Included in a special com- mittee's recommendations for the new shrine facilities were provisions for the education and renewal of the pilgrims' Cath- olic faith rather than merely providing a building and a bles- si...

% ! 3 I ( - ^ - ; THE SHEPHERDS ARE TOLD OF A SAVIOR LUKE 2:8-17 "That night some shepherds were in the fields out- side the village guarding their flocks of sheep. Sud- denly an angel appeared among them, and the land- scape shone bright with the glory of the Lord. They were badly frightened, but the angel reassured them. Don t be afraid!" he said. "I bring you the most joyful news ever announced, and it is for everyone! The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born tonight in Bethlehem! How will you recognize him? You'll find a baby wrapped in a blanket lying in a manger!" Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God : "Glory to God in +he highest heaven." they sang, "and peace on earth for all those pleasing him." When this great army of angels had returned again to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, "Come on! Let's go to Bethlehem! Let's see this wonderful thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about." They r...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 County Agents Report . Accidents never take a holi- day — not even at Christmas. "Fire safety deserves spe- cial attention during the holi- days when additional fire haz- ards may be created with com- bustible trees and decorations or faulty lighting sets. Care- ful attention to a few simple safety suggestions will help keep your holiday safe and hap- py." First of all, select a fresh- looking and firm-needled tree, Saw off the base of the tree at least one inch above the ori- ginal cut, stand the tree in wat- er, and keep it in water until it is taken down. Check the wat- er level daily. Be sure to place the tree away from all sources of heat — fireplaces, radiators or other heaters. Don't rely on "do-it-yourself" flameproofing treatments. Tests indicate that some of the coating available in aerosol cans are partly effective if the coating is thick enough. "In short, there is no satisfactory home treatment which will re- tard...
