THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 T • - Oil And Gas Drilling Make Sharp Comeback HOUSTON —Domestic oil and gas drilling operations have male a rather sharp comeback since dropping to a 10-month low in April. Active rotary drilling rigs in averaged 1,046, compared with 988 in April. May's aver- age was the highest recorded for that month since 1970. ■Early June averages also were running well ahead of the comparable 1972 period. A substantial Increase in drilling activity for 1973 over 1972 had been predicted but weather conditions and drilling rig fuel shortages delayed nu- merous projects. "Snow, rains and floods kept roads impassable over a large area extending from Colorado toAlihama from mid-March to the end of April," says Warren L. Baker, executive vice presi- dent of the international Associ- ation of Drilling Contractors. As a result, Baker says, January-April well completions totaling 8,3 28 were five per cent l>elow the same 1972 period. "Especially d...

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 9 - ' i From the desk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Medical Officer A disaster is unpredictable. Tornadoes may strike with lit- tle or no warning and tie path of a hurricane often changes erratically with little advance warning. Texas and the nation this year have felt the brunt of Mo- ther Nature's violence, and tor- nadoes have roamed the skies. With summer, the hurricane season lies ahead, reminds the State Health Department. Both natural disasters are capable of causing unforeseen numbers of victims requiring immediate medical attention, plus the threats of disease brought on by unsanitary condi- tions, disabling of public uti- lities, contamination of wat- er supplies and disruption of medical service. Floods also may produce rapid buildups in mosquito populations, a nuis- ance as well as a health threat. When a disaster strikes, the Health Department joins with other state and local agencies and organizations to fight back with e...

THURSDAY,'JUNE 21,' 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 12 Inflation Could Be Worse LONDON - It may be small comfort to Americans, but their inflation problems could be worse. They are In much of Western Europe. Wage and price controls are not working well on this side of the Atlantic, an Associated Press survey shows. Often the controls ha ve been less success- ful in Europe than in the United States. The rate of inflation is still worse In Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Denmark and Fin- land than in America. In Britain, for example, Prime Minister Edward Heath's government followed the Nixon lead last November and introduced the nation's toughest wage and price con- trols in its peacetime history. Inflation then was running at 9 per cent a year. It is still run- ning now at 9.2 per cent a year. Worse still, food prices have been rising foster in Britain un- der the controls than they were before. Last year food prices were rising at a rate of 3.4 per cent annually. This year they are ...

The committee was con- cluding two days of hearings calculated to put pressure on Gov. Dolph Briscoe to caU a special legislative session cm school finance, something he has refused to do. In Monday's session, one su- perintendent after another testi- fied that the existing state aid program is inadequate and Is set up in a way that makes ties educational quality to the wealth of a school district. Briscoe's opposition to any additional state taxes killed ef- forts during the regular legisla- tive session to completely re- vise the state aid system.

THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 16 French Farce Next PASS Production Two of the most admired playwrights of England and France, Christen?her Fry and Jean Anouilh, have combined their talents in "Ring Round the Moon," a comedy sub- titled "A Charade With Mus- ic," which the PASS Theatre is presenting at the PAU Fine Arts Complex for three days beginning' June 21. Originally a great Parisian hit under the title "L Invitation au Chatsan," this French play by the author of "Waltz of the Toreadors," "Becket" and "The Rehearsal," was adapt- ed into English by the author of "The Lady's Not for Burn- ing" and "Veaus observed," and became a great London hit and then a controversial pro- duction in New York. The main story of "Ring Round the Moon" has to do with a pair of twin brothers, both of whom will be played by Steve Pharis, an extraor- dinarily rich heiress who is engaged to one of the brothers but desperately in love with the heartless other one, and a ballet dancer...

Each person recalls the past in a different way, and so each weaves his own individual pattern of recollections. * ♦ ♦ ♦ We enjoyed the reunion this past weekend of the family of my maternal grandmother, Mrs. T.A.

•«: THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 6 Producers Destroying Chicks And Eggs Texas producers of broiler chickens are destroying baby chicks and eggs because they say they cannot afford to raise them under the current price freeze. One South Texas producer, T. C, Moore says his growers Hill have destroyed 200,000 chickens by the end of this week. "There's nothing left to do but drown them," he said. Moore, president of Home Foods of Nixon, T&c., said he lost $72,000 on poultry last week. Broilers cost about 45-50 cents a pound to raise, and bring only 40 to 41 cents at market. Moore and other Texis poultry men say that the Presi- dent's lastest 60-day price freeze on retail food products has left them unable to meet skyrocketing feed grain prices. The feed grains, a raw agricul- tural commodity, were not cov- ered by the freeze. Gene Biddle, president of Rite-Care Poultry Co. of Te- naha, Tex., said he is destroy- ing hatching eggs to reduce his weekly output by ...
