r _ ~ * - -% THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 21 The Johnson Years Almost from the day he was born, it seemed, Lyndon Baines Johnson had the makings of a president— right a long side those elements that would contribute to the breaking of a president. The story of his life could lie told in such paradox. Perhaps his wife, Lady Bird, put it best, years later. Recall- ing her first encounter with the impetuous young Texan, she said; "I knew I had rrot some- thing remarkable, but I didn't know quite what." Millions understand now what she meant. Remarkable? Indeed. No one who chanced into that swirling, magnetic orbit could forget the experience. Lyndon Baines Johnson exuded a raw, frontier kind of strength; physically and psychologically, he over- whelmed. Apart from his mentor, Franklin D. Roosevelt, perhaps no other public man in this cen- tury— not even John F. Kenne- dy, whose elegant ghost haunted Johnson to the end- understood so well the sources of power in...

Senator LLOYD BENTSEN Reports THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 22 That Survived The War Peace Brought Devastation To Little Vietnam Village The people of the United States, and of Texas, lost a great cham- pion when former President Lyndon Johnson died recently. President Johnson had a vi- sion of America's greatness and of her potential that guided him throughout his long and illus- trious career of service to his state and his nation. And, nowhere was his vision revealed more clearly than in a speech he delivered in Temple, Te:;as, last September. I would like to, now, share with you a few of President Johnson's views of the United States as he expressed them in that speech. "For too long, we have per- mitted the dark perception to pervade our midst. Day after day, month after month, the por- trayal of America as unclean, unjust and unworthy has been ground into the consciousness of our people." "We no longer see the bloom- ing flowers for we are search- ing f...

GOING TO SAN ANTONIO—Getty ready for the San Antonio Livestock Exposition are Lazaro Rodriguez, Jr., and his 1250 pound Simmental-Hereford cross calf, "Boy". Looking on with a critical eye is Junior's father, Lazaro Rodriguez from the Sagunada Ranch. The calf is being raised and exhibited as a 4-H project and was purchased locally at the Diamond-O Ranch at La Gloria. Getting to this point has not been all fun and games for Junior. "Boy" has been treated more like a star athlete than a market steer. He is fed three times a day and will eat almost fifty pounds of a special feed of several grains and pro- tein sources combined to make him gain rapidly but not get too fat. He goes through an exercise program which requires that he walk one mile each day and spend some time climbing up and down a steep slope. "Boy" is without question the cleanest calf in Starr County.

Weather Picture Improves COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (APJ — The weather was less harsh on Texas farmers and ranchers last week although showers in southern and east- ern sections delayed field work and snow hampered cotton har- vesting in the plains, Dr. John Hutchison, director of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, said. The warmer -weather allowed small grain crops to make some growth, Hutchison said. However, most fields are still too wet for grazing. Cotton harvesting made some progress in the South and Roll- ing Plains with a few days of open weather, he said. In the Far West, the cotton harvest moved toward completion with harvesting limited to the Mid- land-Stanton area. Livestock showed signs of stress in many sections because of recent cold wet weather, he said. Hay and protein supple- ments were in short supply over much of the state due to heavy and prolonged feeding. District agriculture agents gave these results; Panhandle: Favorable weath- er most of the week allowed ...

This intersec- tion is one of the busiest in town with almost half of Rio Grande City's elementary school children attending school there. Located on a major highway, with local and commercial traffic being heavy, the corner has a need for a stop-and-go light not merely a blinking "stop-if-you-can-rnanage-it" type light. Luckily there have been no recent tragedies there, and this is due largely to the supervision provided by the thoughtful teachers there, as well as the care that is taken by the children and parents them- selves. But let's don't wait until it is too late and a tragedy does occur. Let's complain a little to whoever might be able to give us a more effective traffic light there, and a blinking school z...
