THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 4 WOMAN'S TOUCH by Mrs. Ida A Perez County Extension Agent Typically, parents punish children more than praise them, according to one author- ity. Jane Fleischer, specialist in family life education with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, Texas A&\i Univer- sity, stressed that punishment isn't the sole method for guid- ing behavior. "There's also the positive approach — which encourages a child's good behavior through rewards. "Nevertheless, positive guid- ance isn't simple rewarding good behavior instead of pun- ishing the undesirable — it involves guiding by reward. "When using this approach, parents should re me mber three basics involving rewards," Miss Fleischer continued. "First, when a child behaves in a desirable way reward him immediately. Thus, he learns what things or actions will gain a reward. "Second, rewards should ap- ply to a child — such as some- thing special or something he enjoys. This varies with chil...

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 6 CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tex- as Maritime Academy on Peli- can Island is an institution of considerable significance to our salt-water-flavored area. And the House Committee on Mer- chant Marine and Fisheries, of which I am a member, has re- ceived from Rear Admiral John W. Smith, superintendent of the academy, interesting informa- tion about its programs and operations. Texas Maritime Academy (TMA), Admiral Smith ex- plains, is a major component of the Moody College of Marine "Sciences and Maritime Resour- ces of Texas A&M. Origin- ally established in 19G2 as an independent part of the A&M system the academy graduated its first class of students in 1966. The consolidation with Moody College took place with the establishment of that col- lege in September 1971. TMA has graduated 167 stu- dents since that first class. Of this number, 97 are at sea in ships, 62 are in marine- associated industri...

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 f * * i ♦ J- From the desk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Medical Officer The buzzing of bees is just as much a part of the active summer scene as picnicking, swimming, hiking, golfing and gardening. But this pleasant sound is also a warning of the possibility of painful bee stings. Venom from honeybees, bum- blebees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets is--drop for drop— just as potent for certain susceptible persons as deadly rattlesnake venom. Some health authorities be- lieve that stings by these in- sects kill more people in the United States than the feared rattler. On prominent special- ist suggests that some of the sudden deaths attributed to heart failure, or heat prostra- tion, are in reality due to insect stings to susceptible in- dividuals. Many of the bee stings could be avoided with proper pre- cautions. But most people do not seem able to cope with bees and other stinging in- sects. There are 822,000 non- fatal poisionings...

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 9 House Members Defend Votes ' 4 * AUSTIN — Five House members who received a total of $157,640 in federal agricul- tural subsidies last year say they see nothing inconsistent about their votes to toughen rules on state welfare sub- sidies. All five voted for an amend- ment to the House appropria- tions bill that would require able-bodied persons to apply for jobs with the Texas Employ- ment Commission before they could qiBlify for welfare. All but one, Rep. W. S. Heat- ly, D-Paducah, also voted for an amendment that would re- quire welfare recipients to swear they meet all require- ments of welfare laws and regulations. Both amendments later got the axe in a joint House-Senate committee on appropriations because, the five senators said, they should be handled in sepa- rate bills rather than in the state spending law. In return for an agreement not to plant cotton or feed grain on 25 to 45 per cent of their land holdings in 1972, the...

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 10 Consumers Can Ease Food-Dollar Pinch i Getting the most from your food dollar has become the preoccupation of the American consumer as prices soar in grocery stores across the nation. In a joint interview, two members of the University of Texas Home Economics De- partment - Miss Shirley Noor- deloos, instructor, and Dr. Zoe Ann Holmes, assistant pro- fessor —pooled their know- ledge in an effort to offci t*>e consumer some alternatives in the food-dollar pinch. Their suggestion for cutting the total food bill; "compari- son and a willingness to ex- periment." "Americans are going to get tired of dried bean casserole," comments Miss Noordeloos. "But people can eat fairly much as they have always eaten if they are willing to take a little' extra effort in their food buy-' ing." The first thing to do is to re-evaluate your grocery buy- ing habits. If you have always shopped in one store, be willing to in- vestigate the prices in o...

THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 11 -[ Emergency Fuel En Route To S.A. SAN ANTONIO, Tex. With limited supplies of emer- gency fuel oil in hand or en route here, this South Texas city's municipally owned utility now has three weeks to seek further solutions in its elec- tricity crisis. The City Public Service Board says it is accepting an offer from Coastal States Gas Producing Co. of Houston for a "loan" of 200,000 liarrels of oil to fire its power plant gener- ators, which normally run on natural gas. A spokesman for the board said acceptance of the ton would not compromise the city's position in a raging feud with Coastal States, which has curtailed the city's daily natu- ral gas supply by two-thirds. The board, in a statement re- leased Wednesday, claimed Coastal States is trying to make San Antonio an example in an effort to obtain higher gas prices than those now stipu- lated in contracts with its cus- tomers. Coastal States said it began loading trucks Wednesd...

r i « i f THURSDAY, MAY 31, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 12 Cadet Trick Fails On Sixth Attempt LAREDO, Tex. - The leader of a group of Mexicans who tried to enter the United States illegally disguised as military cadets Tuesday says the trick worked five times be- fore in the past year. The men were detained by immigration officials as they came across the bridge in taxis from Nuevo Laredo. Their leader, Bernardino Aranda, 35, of Zieatecas state, was charged with encouraging aliens to enter the United States illegally and held in the Webb County jail after his bond was set at $10,000. The 17 men accompanying Aranda wore uniforms, shiny boots, and had military hair- cuts. Aranda claimed to be a Mexican Army captain. "But they just didn't look like military cadets," said immigra- tion inspector L. T. Barr. "They looked more like labor- ers; they did not act or speak like cadets." The men came to the immi- gration office claiming they were on a trip to San Antonio for a military spo...

Towns- people find their lives slowly returning to normal; and down- town, business is almost as usu- al. But less than four blocks from the town square, the skeleton of a sandbag dike cov- ered with plastic sheeting re- mains, one of the reminders of the worst flooding in 200 years. Many of the houses and stores along North Main Street remain unoccupied, furniture and merchandise still resting on platforms intended to keep them from the water. Automo- biles that Here submerged by the river sit mired in the mud. Highwater marks ring the buildings, some halfway up the first story, and the stagnant odor of mud and dampness yjangs in the air.
