THE RIO GRANDE HERALD RIO GRANDE CITY PAGE 17 THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1973 CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports WASHINGTON D.C.--TheSea Grant program authorized by Congress in 1966 and now up for continuance has considerable significance for South Texas, And, according to a Texan who recently appeared before the House Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, of which I am a member, it is "the most important and successful piece of legislation related to marine sources which Congress has passed." The witness was John Cal- houn, now vice president for Academic Affairs at Texas A&M. Mr. Calhoun, who has been associated directly with the Sea Grant program in sev- eral ways, said the program's inherent advantages and suc- cesses stem from three factors: (1) The program has provided a stimulus to identify and bring together a consideration of all aspects of the marine resources fteld, which no other legislation and no other Federal program has done. (2) The program deals with people wh...

The AP checked the prices of eight meat items In 11 cities on April2 — the first business day of the week-long boycott and the day the Internal Revenue Service began enforcing price ceilings Imposed by President Nixon.

Bill Spencer of McAllen, one of the POWs released re- cently by the North Vietnam- ese, spoke to the Rio Grande Valley Press Club Saturday, that his delightful sense of hu- mor helped him through his try- ing nine month experience. Shot down in July of 1972, Capt. Spencer told of his feel- ings upon being captured and his treatment the first 36 hours after he surrendered to the throngs of Vietnamese surroun- ding him with pitchforks, guns and threatening gestures when "his parachute landed outside of Hanoi. He told of feeling intense fear, which lasted only minutes before reason and common sense took over, when he first realized that he would have to abandon his plane and when he was afraid that his captors might shoot him when he tried to escape to the foothills. He was confined without food or water for 36 hours in an up- right position with his arms so tight...

I *— « Austin Notebook By Stuart Long PAGE 6 AUSTIN—There's something wonderful about de- mocracy. You simply can't believe what you hear proposed as members of the Texas House of Representatives tilt their lances at this and that in the nine billion dollar appropriations bill. About 175 amendments were piled high on the or- nate old desk where Speaker Price Daniel Jr., and Parliamentarian Bob Johnson preside. One by one they were laid out. The authors spoke to them, extolled the merits of the amendments and the demerits of the proposed item of spending which they sought to wipe out and purge from the policies of the State of Texas. Then the "writers of the bill," like Reps. Walt Parker of Denton, Fred Agnich of Dallas and Nell Caldwell of Alvin, explained why the money was there, how it had been justified by the State agency concerned, and moved to table the amendment. Nearly every time the amendment was tabled. Us- ually the votes were big. Usually "record votes" were demanded, an...

The new regulations an- nounced Thursday, cover eligi- bility, appeals hearings and re- covery of overpayments. They could save hundreds of millions of dollars In the $18 billion-e- year wel&re system, said Rob- ert B. carleson, a special as- sistant on welfare matters in the Department of Health, Edv> cation and Welfiire. He said the initial reaction from state welfare adminis- trators has been "over- whelmingly positive." Carleson, Gov.
