That's how a new one was described by some viewers recently, although its resemblance almost line-for- line to the old-fashioned origi- nal was unmistakable. The new tub, a shimmering red, was enameled inside and o'lt and had electroplated gold feet, fau- cets and piping It would have been a smash in the Gay Nine- ties. In explaining the introduction of the "birthday baths" which included not only the red tub but a vibrant pink one, Herbert V. Kohler. chairman of the board of the engineering company cel- ebrating its 100th anniversary, observed that "... it (the tub) isn't made of plastic or acrylic or another of the so-called space-age materials ... it is made of cast iron . . . one look at the tub and you'd say we hadn't progressed in 100 years . . a second look might suggest that it is rather avant garde . . in any kind of setting — an- tique, e...

El Negro Ranch strong backers of soil conservation program Roman Garza, foreman of the 16,500-acre El Negro Ranch near Rio Grande City, speaks Spanish, not English. But it takes more than a lan- guage barrier to conceal Gar- za's enthusiasm for buffel- grass, a plant that has turned the livestock industry around in South Texas. Garza says some 14,000 acres of land on El Negro, owned by Mr. George H. Coates of San Antonio, has been seeded to buffelgrass, mostly following rootplowing. The remaining 1,000 acres of brush have been left in careful!} designed pat- terns for wildlife food and cov- er. "Before we started our grass- land improvement work, burn- ing pricklypear for cow feed was an accepted way of life here in South Texas," Garza said, relating the story to, Soil Conservation Service Dis- trict Conservationist Silves- tre Gonzalez of Rio Grande City. Garza, who has worked on the ranch since 1920, s...

Philae Temple Workers Get U.N. Rations ASWAN, Egypt — Gaber Mohamed lifted the 100 pound sack of wheat to his shoulder and col- lected a tin of butter, a packet of sugar and one of tea. A few feet away, just outside the U.N.'s World Food Pro- gram (WFP) office, Am Aly was loading his rations on a donkey for the trip home to his wife and three children. This was the scene as the U.N. agency distributed the first rations to 500 workers en- gaged in preparing a new site for the 2,000-year-old temples of Philae, endangered by the wa- ters of the Nile river. The new site is the Isle of Agilkia, 500 meters away from the partially submerged temples. The WFP is contributing $2.4 million in food to the workers over the course of the five-year salvage project. "We want to attach the labor- ers to the project through their stomach ... in this case to save the ancient heritage," says Gamal Harbi, resident WFP representative. Most of the men helped build the Egyptian-Soviet Aswan High Dam, withi...

As it turned out, the I'M1 • lb. hindquarter of beef cost $192.56 cut up, wrapped and marked by the butcher who sold it to her at 99 cents a pound, a price lie had quoted her previously, even though, meanwhile, the cost of the beef had risen 6 cents a oound to $1.05. If she had bought the meat as it was needed, it would have cost her $212.46 at retail chain stores where she normally shops. The neighborhood butcher in the high-cost area of Fairfield County, Conn., sells only choice cuts of meat, and she would not have bought the individual cuts from him. For example, sev- eral weeks after her purchase, the meat price ceiling went into effect and he is now selling filet...

u ~ History Books Writer's Forte THURSDAY. MAY 24, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 24 Minimal Brain Dysfunction Is Not One Disease, It's A Family NEW YORK - To Truman Nelson, history is not a long corridor dot- ted with dusty dates, but a liv- ing thing, full of sound and fury signifying something. Says Nelson, 62-year-old au- thor of a number of novels and nonfiction books dealing with historical subjects, "the emo- tional dimension of history is very important, and it has largely been left out. To me, history can't be properly presented without a sense of the emotions surrounding the event." Feeling that the "emotional response to John Brown has been ignored, " Nelson has tried to get the feelings of the times surrounding the controversial abolitionist and his raid on Harper's Ferry into his latest book, "The Old Man." Nelson, who earlier wrote what he calls a "nonfiction nov- el about Brown in which every- thing is validated except for the psychological asides," says his new Brow...

By the year 2000 the new city promises "a new way of life" for 2 million of Rio's antici- pated 10 million residents — a life free from the congestion, pollution and noise that plague Rio's present population of 4.3 million. The site, called Barra da Ti- juca, is 10 miles from Cop- acabana, which was considered a seaside paradise until the late '50s but now is three square miles of concrete housing 250,000 people. Barra da Tijuca is an unspoiled area flanked by mountains and dotted with lakes. It stretches for 14 miles along one of the most beautiful beaches in the world When the federal government announced plans in 1964 to build a highway through the area to connect Rio with the port of Santos, 250 miles to the sou...

THURSDAY, MAY 31? 19?" THF PTQ GRANDE HERALD PAGE 2 ,2\ & toW11 with tissa peterson While spending this past weekend at Falcon State Park, I noticed several things that really impressed me. The animals, especially rabbits and quail, which usually avoid people like the plague, which were so completely trusting and would come right up close to the campsites. This must mean that visitors to the parks are res- pecting the rights of these animals to remain in their wild surround- ings. We saw onn car stop and take a slow-moving turtle off of the paved road and put him into the brush, to make sure he'd make it to wherever he was going. If we can remember that these ani- mals breathe the same air we do and deserve their rights and pri- vileges too, this is a first step toward preservation of the balance of nature. * * * * We are very lucky in having Falcon Lake to the West and Bentsen and Anzalduas Parks to the East of us.
