THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 9 James says state funds wisely used.. AUFVIN — Angered by a recent state auditor's report that the state's money Is not earning as much as It could, State Treasurer Jesse James fired back Saturday that his management of funds actually saved $38 million to $64 mil- lion In the past year In addi- tion to earning about $18.6 million In Interest. State Auditor George McNlel took no Issue with James' claim. But he said the treasurer either missed or was over- looking the point of the audi- tor's recent report on state money management. McNeil emphasized that the staters fiscal affal rs should be arranged so that the $38 mil- lion to $64 million did not have to be saved by investing state money at no Interest when It could be making more than $7.1 ml 111 on ayear in interest the state is not re- ceiving. James was miffed over a money management study which Mc Mel's office did at the request of the 1 egislative Audit Committee (which hire...

Early THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 10 Students Should Seek Summer Employment WASHINGTON—It's not too early for high school students to start looking for summer employment, the Labor Depart- ment says. Each summer, millions of young people enter the job mar- ket for the first time. And one director of vocation- al education here said, this al- ways means the summer job market Is tighter for students than during the school year. ~ The department lists the fol- lowing organizations that trad- itionally hire a large percen- tage of the summer youth work force: -Banks, with jobs, for cleri- cal workers and janitors. -Small stores, which need cashiers, delivery help, and stock clerks. -Insurance companies hire mall department messengers and clerical workers. -Summer camps have jobs for counselors, lifeguards, beachboys, and busboys. -Construction companies need carpenter's helpers and la- borers. Some of these jobs require special skills. A life guard, for example, n...

(4AHCH 8, 1973 PAGE 18 WORD from Page 1 the fact that the majority of In- dividuals working for the coun- ty earn between $200 and $350 per month. In view of present day Inflationary living costs it 1s impossible for a man to sub- sist on such, much less to sup- port a family of four to six or 12 or more as is the case often times. I also realize that jobs are practically nonexlstant and that the county and the schools are our biggest employing es- tablishments. I have urged all the commissioners and depart- ment heads to audit their of- fice and determine which of their personnel is most essen- tial. These individuals must be retained and paid at least the minimum wage if they are not receiving it or a salary com- mensurate with the job that is being performed. A few will have to be discharged. It would be humanly impossible to keep the total number of employees that are at present on the county payroll and pay them a mini- mum wage on the money that the county receives annually. I...

AMMMMMMMWWlNf* CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 20 WASHINGTON, D.C. — "I'm- pound", says a simple diction- ary definition, means "to shut or place in a pound; hence, to seize and hold in legal cus- tody; as, to impound stray cat- tle; to impound goods or docu- ments". That is not much help in try- ing to understand the current controversy in Congress, duly reported by the news media, a- bout the President's impound- ment of funds voted by Con- gress for specific purposes. What this comes down to is that the Executive Branch is refusing to spend money ap- propriated by the Legislative Branch — for highways; for water and sewage grants; for Corps of Engineers civil con- struction projects; for indus- trial expansion grants; for wat- er pollution control; for the Veterans Administration; for construction of various types. The impoundment crisis, if that is what it may be called, was precipitated when the Pre- sident killed or slowe...

The purpose of the bills, ac- cording to Roybal aide Dan Maldonado, Is to give Immi- grants from the Western Hem- isphere—which Includes the A- merlcas—equal rights with those from the Eastern Hemis- phere—which includes other parts of the world. The bills also seek to dis- courage future illegal immigra- tion while protecting those ille- gal immigrants who have dem- onstrated some kind of "com- mitment" to the United States, Maldonado said. The bills would: --Discourage illegal immi- grants who come to seek jobs by requiring proof of resident status before a social security card is granted. -- Enable illegal aliens who have been in the United States for some time and established family ...

THURSDAY", MARCH 8, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 22 Says Biologist Lack Of Water Will Not Let Life On Moon Bloom Parents urged to school annual buy SPACE CENTER, Houston — The chemical seeds of life exist on the moon but were never allowed to bloom into lush growth because of a lack of water, a biologist says here. Dr. Sidney W. Fox of the Uni- versity of Miami told scientists attending the lunar science con- ference Tuesday that he and two other scientists discovered the chemical forerunners to amino acids, the basic building blocks of evolving life, in the Apollo lunar samples. Fox said the chemicals, called precursors, changed into six types of amino acids when the lunar samples were ex- posed to water in a laboratory. "The probability would have been high that some kind of liv- i n g system would have emerged from these chemical precursors if there had been adequate water at the right time and places on the moon," said Fox. "The main reason I say this is that laboratory ex- p...

The honors studies program provides additional opportun- ities for interested and cap- able students and is not a sep- arate field of study but rather an enrichment of those already in existence. "The program offers the in- dividual student a chance to go beyond the normal coverage of a given subject area," Dr. Dowell said. Dr. Dowell said that honors courses have three different means of achieving their pur- poses: Through special hon- ors sections of courses which satisfy generally educational requirements; individual study and research In a major or related field; and through study in interdisciplinary colloquia.

A shortage of oil and natural gas and environmental restric- tions on the use of coal are forcing utility companies to build nuclear-fired power plants, the speakers said, and atomic energy will supply up to 60 per cent of the nation's pow- er requirements by the year 2000. Can such plants— powered by the same energy which givet> boom to the atomic bomb— be considered safe? "Yes," said Ms. Dixy Lee Ray, chairperson of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, the agency charged with licen- ing nuclear plants.

wm THURSDAY. MARCH 8, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 28 Pros And Cons Of Contracting Crops COLLEGE STATION — By contracting crops or livestock In advance, farmers and ranch- ers can take some of the guess- work out of their operations. "But it's not all milk and honey," according to Wayne Hayenga and Don Parks, eco- nomists for the Texas Agri- cultural Extension Service. "Forward contracting is a financial management tool that can be especially helpful to producers when prices are changing," contend the econo- mists. "Forward contracting fixes the price of a product so that there is less financial risk to the producer." Another advantage to the pro- ducer is that once a product is contracted, it gives him great- er financial leverage and may allow him to borrow more operating capital. Lending in- stitutions often are more will- ing to extend loans to produ- cers who have a guaranteed price for their product. On the negative side, forward contracting limits the produ- cer's profit p...
