THURSQ4Yk JMUAia, 35JW3 JftE. WQ CffiAliOSJlWiALDJiAGt:JL issue Inaugurating the UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE JULY 1. 1971 To The Editor Dear Mr. rrejo, I write this open 'etter to Miss Maria Imelda Rodriguez because of the letter published in your paper last week. I disagree with Miss Rodriguez in that the Rio Grande Herald has never published "insinuations, allegations, and accusations" as she refers. I have lived in San Antonio for the past two years and re- ceive our local paper and I have yet to see anything printed in the Herald that was not true or that could easily be proved. I regret that Miss Rodriguez took a swipe at Mr. Diaz after all he has done for Rio Grande City and Starr County. I'd like for that Miss Rodriguez to know that Mr. Diaz was seek- ing ways to better serve his community at great risks long before Miss Rodriguez could write her name. I feel strongly that without the shot-in-the-arm that Mr. Diaz has given Rio Grande City it would have dried up like Miss Ro...

THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 9 America's Longest War To End This Saturday WASHINGTON - Pres- ident Nixon, claiming all condi- tions for "peace with honor" have been met, has announced agreement on a Vietnam ac- cord that will end America's longest war on Saturday. In a television-radio address to the nation Tuesday nieht, Nixon did not specify whether the Washington-Hanoi pact, ini- tialed Tuesday in Paris and due for signing there Saturday, would end the fighting in Laos and Cambodia as well as Viet- nam. Nor did he detail the peace- keeping machinery or the for- mula for settling South Viet- nam's political future. These and other questions presumably would be an- swered, at least in part, with the release today of the text of the agreement and an assort- ment of associated diplomatic documents. Hailed by South Vietnam's President Nguyen Van Thieu, and announced in laid terms by Hanoi radio, the peace pact as Nixon outlined it calls for: — An international...

a t J c c c I £ 1 > t ] 1 i ('. ' c 1 t \ New Juvenile Law Reforms Offered Around the turn of the centu- ry Texas, along with most other states, enacted Its first laws dealing with the juvenile law- breaker. These laws, swept in by a wave of idealism and social re- form, were designed to rescue and rehabilitate the anti-social child, for the benefit of him- self and society. Now, nearly three-quarters of a century later, the State Bar of Texas is proposing that it is time to reform the reforms. A complete new juvenile law will be one of the largest bills in a package of family law revisions to be offered by the Bar at the next session of the Texas Leg- islature in January. Impetus for change has come from a number of sources. Se- veral recent United States Su- preme Court decisions pointed cut that the youthful offender was being given harsher treat- ment and fewer rights than an adult who had broken the same law. A 1972 Readers Digest arti- cle flatly declared that the ju- venil...

Cell Chemistry Theory Pursued By Scientists s | t j c ( c 1 ■v c 1 t la i ( c? t \ How can some cells in the hu- man body change their chemical output according to the body's needs? Why are some bacteria able to live on any of several different food sources? How does any cell regulate its own internal chemistry? A mass of experimental ob- servations on this subject had been puzzling scientists for /ears. Then, in 1961, two French scientists announced a compre- hensive theory to explain the data. When the two men did their work, this much was already known: the cell's genes, made up of a chemical called DNA, contain the codes for the struc- tures of various proteins, and other machinery exists in the cell to read the codes and pro- duce the proteins. These pro- teins, which are special ones called enzymes, then initiate the cell's chemical reactions with its environment. The question in 1961 was, how does the cell regulate the quantity of each enzyme it produces? The two scientists, ...

THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 19 - * r ✓ * • v % Taking Care Of Teeth Is Serious Business So you've been reading about "preventive dentis- try." You hear that if the mouth is properly cleaned, dental problems will be minimized, maybe even be gone forever. It has finally gotten to you that if you knew what to do, you may never wear false teeth; maybe you will never even have anoth- er cavity. Now how do you go about making preventive care a part of your life? Many dentists today agree that the primary cause of in- flammatory gum disease and tooth decay is the almost invis- ible gummy mass of micro- organisms called dental plaque. If plaque is thoroughly removed every 24 hours, it does not have a chance to ferment and start trouble. If, for ex- ample, inflammation has be- gun, it can >e completely ar- rested in less than a month on a preventive program, so long as it has not progressed to form infected pockets between gums and teeth The prevention program be...

Johnson obtain- ed congressional approval of a resolution granting him full support for "all necessary ac- tion to protect our armed forces." A steady escalation of the U.S. involvement began; and, at its height, the American force soared past the half mil- lion mark. As the war progressed with increased American deaths, ob- jection began to fester at home. It began with the chants of col- lege students but grew to mas- sive antiwar protests in cities across the nation.
