Persons Buying Banned Toys Guaranteed Refund THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 25 i i : WASHINGTON (AP) - Per- sons who buy dangerous toys or other banned hazardous sub- stances would be ginranteed refunds under a two-year-old proposal revived by the Food and Drug Administration. The revival of the proposal, announced Friday, was spurred by a Ralph Nader lawsuit. Under the 1970 Child Protec- tion and Toy Safety Act, an amendment to the Hazardous Substances Act, the FDA had banned 833 types of toys, paint with more than .5 per cent lead, most Class B fireworks, drain cleaners with more than 10 per cent sodium or potas- sium hydrochloride, silver pol- ishes with cynaide, carlon tetrachloride for home use, as- bestos in garments and the wa- ter-proofing compound X-33.

The dealer would have to post prominent notice of the banned articles for...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 27 Harlingen Given 45 Days To Meet Federal Guidelines A federal civil rights investiga- tor has told Harlingen school board members their system is failing to comply with some federal guidelines pertaining to the education of Mexican-Amer- ican pupils and gave them 45 days to come up with a correc- tive plan for next year. Although the school system has 70 per cent Mexican-Ameri- can pupils, James Littlejohn of the civil rights division of the Department of Health, Educa- tion and Welfare said they are classified as minority pupils.

The beard was given the 45 days to come up with a plan to be implemented in the next school year to correct the defi- ciencies. When school board President Joe Garat claimed it was un- fair to give the district only 45 days to reply when the investi- gation took a year, Littlejohn agreed that the district c...

The largest of the loans, made in March of 1970, went to Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Duncan for $1.3 million of which $1.1 mil- lion is still outstanding. Duncan allegedly made a $305,000 campaign contribution to President Nixon's campaign for re-election, but the financial statement accompanying it omitted millions of dollars in debts Duncan owed, according to a report made by the U.S. House Banking Committee. The Sharpstown Bank tailed in January of 1971 after its largest stockholder, Frank W. Sharp, was named in a civil suit by the Securities and Ex- change Commission charging stock manipulation.

The issue is this: are we going to enlarge and upgrade the sewage system so that Rio Grande City will be used as a sewage disposal pool for the use of non-residents living outside the water district and exempt from taxes? Are we, the residents of Rio Grande City, going to foot the bill so that landowners outside the water district will develope their land into sub-divisions, motels, market centers etc? Is it wise for the taxpayers of the water district to furnish sewage service to improve real estate values outside the district? In the name of "progress" are you willing to burden yoursel...

«vmwAY, DECEMBER 28, 1972 THE RIO GRAii. Texas Solons Will Eye High Court For Decision On School Financing -i AUSTIN, Tex. - The 1973 Legislature might be forced by the U.S. Supreme Court to make the most radical change since 1949 In the way Texans pay for educating chil- dren. And a major tax fight could result if the court issues a deci- sion that forces state tax sources to assume the full bur- den of financing public schools Approximately half of the Legislators who took part in an Associated Press survey on is- sues toeing the session that starts Jan. 9 had definite ideas about how the school finance system should be changed. Even more had opinions about potential tax sources, if needed. School finance was rated the session's top issue. Before the session adjourns in May the high court probably will have upheld or overruled a San Antonio Federal court deci- sion that the present method of financing Texas schools is un- constitutional. The San Antonio court found that children i...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 5 Japanese Getting Bigger Did you ever wonder why Tex- ans are tall? Maybe the answer can be found In Japan, of all places. The Japanese people, characteristi- cally small, have suddenly begun blossoming into a larger, and probably sturdier, race. Experts say the new breed of Japanese is developing through improved nutrition. Texas historically has been a major beef-producing state. Naturally, her people, especi- ally sun-and-wlnd-toughened cowboys, consumed beef in abundant quantities. Through- out much of recorded history, however, religious inhibitions of the Japanese people restrict- ed protein intake primarily to fish and soybeans. Consequently, the rugged men of the old west grew into a race of near giants, while the Japan- ese remained small. All of that is changing today. / /oA w HEADLIGHTS HELPFUL ADVICE FOR THE WOMAN DRIVER To get the green light as a safe driver, you should realize that good driving is more a matter o...

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD Unborn Babies May Be Harmed By Diets HOUSTON - A nu- trition expert says malnu- trition threatens the unborn of American middle-class wom- en as well as those of poor women. "The low income woman who is pregnant does not eat well," said Dr. Myron Winick. "The obstetrician tells the middle- class women not to eat much." Winick, director of the In- stitute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, said weight control during preg- nancy may be dangerous "Be- cause the pregnant woman is eating for two persons. Winick told a meeting of the Society for Neuroscience that the malnutrition problem is most critical for the poverty- stricken woman. Often they do not look malnourished be- cause their starchy but low- protein diets make them fat, he said. He said unsuspecting doctors then put them on weight-reduc- ing diets which doubly deprive them of needed nourishment. He said some scientists strongly suspec...

-J "i * f- I j Women Demanding Equal Rights To Credit And Loans Women who claim they've been denied credit because of their sex are becoming increas- ingly militant in demanding equal rights to credit cards and loans. In response, a number of ma- jor stores, credit card com- panies and banks say they are changing or clarifying their credit policies, and some cred- itors are actively pursuing the business of women. "A year ago, women just ac- cepted discrimination vnthout question," said Carole De Sa- ram of the National Organ- ization of Women. "Now they're no longer taking it. They're asking, 'What do you mean I can't have a loan or credit?' Hundreds of women—and even some hus- bands—are up in arms." "There's been an enormous increase in the number of wo- men demanding equal access to credit," said Barbara Shack, assistant director of the New York Civil Liberties Union. "Women are much more mili- tant, and it's having an effect on retailers and lenders." Ruth Holstein, executive di...
