THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1973 if I f From tba desk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Medical Officer Despite the rich bounty pro- vided to us by the land, Texas and the nation are described as nutritional illiterates. Nutrition is a relatively new science. For this reason there is room for misunderstanding, and even intentional misrepre- sentation. Although much mal- nutrition is the result of pov- erty, a full pocket doesn't mean a nourished body, says the State Health Department. Focus on the high price of meat has made Texans more aware of their eating habits. But one group of individuals — the food faddists -- are willing to pay through the nose (and sometimes through their health) for items no better than those offered in supermarkets. Like bobbysox, beeboppers, pointed toed shoes, ponytails and rock 'n roll, fads come and go. But for some the memory may linger on since food fads can affect health and quality of living for a long time. A big fad at the moment is the weight reduction kick, whi...

THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1973 THE RIQ GRANDE HERALD PAGE 10 Little Leaguers open baseball season The baseball season is under way for the Little League and Pony League teams here. The first game was Tuesday, May 1. The first season for a Pony League, to include thirteen and Babe Ruth, undoubtedly the best baseball player of all time, was also the most colorful. The grandstander of them all, Babe is probably best remembered for that famous day in the Fall of 1932 in Chicago. That day, the Yankees were playing the Cubs in the World Series. Chicago fans, as partisan and noisy as always, were pounding the ears of the Yankees with particularly loud abuse. The Yankees were beating the Cubs badly. The fans were really angry when the great Babe stepped to bat in the late innings. The Bambino had already hit one home run in the series and now when he came to bat, the roar from the crowd grew to a new pitch. They jeered and taunted him. The words flew like bricks at the pride of the Yankees. The fans...

THURSDAY. MAY 3. 1 •!- - T . . .L. , f j; . > . THE AUSTIN -- Legislators have a lot more left to do than they have done so far in almost four months. Of the nearly 1,700 House bills and almost 1,000 Senate bills introduced, fewer than 100 actually have reached the Governor's desk. If the 63rd Legislature ac- complishes as much as the 62nd did numerically (more than 1, 000 bills passed), about 99 per cent of the floor action must be capsuled in the brief period before the May 28 adjournment deadline. Slow-moving debate in the House — where more than 200 amendments were offered — on the $9.7 billion appropriation bill fanned some speculation that a special session may be necessary to complete manda- tory work. Gov. Dolph Briscoe, who holds the key to calling such a session, has made clear he doesn't want one. Senators banged through their $9.0 billion version of the state budget in an hour and 21 minutes. In spite of the two weeks spent on the House spending bill, Speaker Price Da...

THE RIO G°«JDE HERALD PAGE 14 Conservation A *e 4^ *s by SILVESTRE GONZALEZ Distrkt Conservationist THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1973 Man has been interested in the soil and what it can and -will do for him since agriculture was born. Formal study of the soil was started about 1870 in Russia. The U.S. got started in soil classification and mapping in 1899. Since those times the Soil Survey program of the U- SDA has changed several times to keep pace with the chang- ing times. In the late 1940's the soil survey was made a part of the Soil Conservation Service. Today, soil surveys and soils map information is basic to any form of planning, whether it will be for farming, subdivi- sion development, or the re- location of complete cities. Soils information is very val- uable. The SCS in cooperation with the Texas Agricultural Exper- iment Station completed the field mapping of Starr County in 1964. The complete pub- lished soil survey report was released in November 1972. This publication is availa...

In his speech to the nation Monday night, the President placed Elliot L. Richardson, his nominee for attorney general, in charge of the case but gave him authority to appoint a spe- cial prosecutor if he l>elieves one is needed.

t£y |V THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 17 THURSDAY', MAY 3, 1973 •< - * . I People Turning To Gardening To Beat Soaring High Prices WASHINGTON - Soar- ing food prices are driving mil- lions of families into backyard sixiding and vegetable planting this spring in what may be the biggest outbreak of green- thumbery since World War n Victory gardens. A limiting factor, according to a survey by The Associated Press, has been the severe weather this spring. As heavy rains, unseasonal snows and cold temperatures have throttled farmers, so have wuuld-tx gardeners been denied their salad days. The big push for home-grown tomatoes, corn, lettuce, radish- es and other garden goodies seems to be building up, how- ever. At the Department of Agri- culture, where dozens of differ- ent [amphlets and brochures on gardening are turned out, of- ficials say orders appear to be increasing from county exten- sion offices and members of Congress where such informa- tion is available free of charge.

Mrs. Cummings stated that, "One does not have to leave the boundaries of Texas to de- light oneself with the treasures that can be found anywhere in our U.S.A."

J A -n ) | i •i 1 i * . STRIKE from page 1 instance, allows pickets to get their message across, but keeps them from becoming "an actual obstacle" to the com- mon good. As for abusive language, the state cited a Supreme Court ruling in a New Hampshire case saying, "it is well under- stood that the right of free speech is not absolute at all times and under all circum- stances." As for the unlawful assembly law, the state's brief argued "the notion that a group of jwrsons have a constitutional right to prevent someone else from working at his employ- ment is hardly likely to be the law." During a June, 19G8, hearing on the suit, the Hangers were accused of beating two union officers arrested in Rio Gran- de City. Two other union men alleged they were terrorized by having their heads held dan- gerously near to a passing train they attempted to picket at Mission. The Rangers, headed by now retired Capt. A. Y. Allee, denied every allegation of brutality. They said the strike was punctua...

Greco explained that he and Pate were good friends. Greco knighted Pate as an "Hidalgo," an honor which iiv. has the right to bestow on men of merit but seldom is given anyone outside Spain. The reception was held at a lake's edge lined with palm and banana trees. Pate and his bride rode to the receptio...
