THURSDAY, JULY 26, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE IS Cattlemen Predict Major Beef Shortages * Cattlemen in Texas, the na- tion's leading cattle-producing state, grimly predicted Thurs- day major beef shortages be- cause of President Nixon's con- tinued control of finished beef Prices under Phase 4. "The consumer is going to get it in the end...again," Texas Agriculture Commissioner John White said. Lamar Holley, director of Southwestern Meat Packers Inc., said Phase 4 "will close or cause drastic losses in every beef slaughter house in A mer- ica." Ilolley's Dallas—based group covers Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas, ret>- resenting some 200 firms which pack 85 per cent of the meat in Texas. "When you consider that a huge portion of America's beef is slaughter within a 200-mile radius of Amarillo then you can zero in on the magnitude of the problem," Holley said. White blamed the Problem on "a Lick of candor on the part of the (Nixon) administration. This is politically ...

RIO GRANDE Serving over 5000 readers over 55 years TPA Award Winning Newspaper Ten Cents Vol. XXXI No. 27 Thursday August 2, 1972 Rio Grande City, Texas tell it like it w Absent students cost district $76,120. RAUL THEJO HER At I) MANAGING EDITOR Where are the Bids? It seems that the county Auditor E. G. Gonzalez and his assistant Heberto Barrera are trying to play a dif- ferent game when it comes to bids for new county equip- ment. Recently, the Herald has published reports where the county has failed to pay their bill for legal notices pub- lished in the Rio Grande Herald. Gonzalez and Barrera seem tothinkthat they have solved the problem by taking their legal notice bids to the Mc- Allen paper. We know of a $38,000.00 grader that was purchased with revenue sharing funds without bid notice in the lo- cal paper and know of other equipment that has been pur- chased with bids received by the county when notices have not been published in the local paper. Eagle Pass tryed the same thi...

A fantastic motion picture focused on his life has recently been produced and will soon be shown locally.

- ' -t . I 1 THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 5 Guide Dog Leads Blind Owner In Obedience Trial Ratings NEW YOF. - Toni Gardiner and her dog Charm might look the same as any other competitors in obedience trials for Golden Retrievers on Iang Island. There's a big difference. Tom is blind, and Charm works most of the time in harness as her guide dog. Training Charm to temporar- ily put aside his guide dog be- havior for show dog precision was the work of Miss Gardiner and her friend Laurie Dou- maux. Mrs. Doumaux says working in obedience brought out a dif- ferent facet of Charm's person- ality. But first, she and Miss Gardiner had to see conflicts between guide and obedience dog behavior, and to avoid them. "Golden Retrievers are ver- satile anyway," Miss Gardiner added. "There are two behav- iors for them, as guide dogs in and out of harness. And there are two other behaviors for Charm obedience and guid- ing. When he is guiding me, he is pulling out, walking slig...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 6 THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 Panel Begins Drafting New Constitution AUSTIN, Tex. - Texas' Constitutional Revision Com- mission saw both blue skies and dark clouds ahead today as they began drafting a new state constitution to replace the 1876 document that has been amended 2l2 times. The first detailed discussion today concerned constitutional changes affecting the legisla- ture. At the first session Thursday of a crucial four-day meeting for the 37-roember commission, there Mere optimistic pre- dictions mixed with warnings that a new Policy document for Texas was still a long way off. 'It must be a straightforward and plainspoken document which Is readily acceptable to all the people of Texas, a docu- ment which is concerned with the human needs of our state," Gov. Dolph Briscoe said. He spoke at a special briefing for Texas editors and publish- ers at the Lakeway Resort 30 miles northwest of Austin. "If the new constitution which you recommend and the memb...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 4 I V. I -• 4 1 Househusband Solves THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 Working Wife's Dilemma MIAMI - When Bart Rhoades accompanied his wife to a Presbyterian ministers' convention last year, she met with the ministers and he met with the wives. When he heard the wives complain about getting along on a minister's salary, the boredom of housework and the problem of not seeing enough of their mates, Rhoades could honestly say, "I know what you mean." Rhoades, 74, is married to Dr. Jacqueline Rhoades, a min- ister at New Covenant Presby- terian Church. While she pur- sues her career in the church, her husband, retired for the last decade, stays home and runs the house. "I'm a 'femme de menage,' " says the good-natured Rhoades. In plain English, he's a 'househusband.' The tall, silver-haired Rhoades isn't alone. There seems to be a trend of sorts for retired men to keep house while their wives continue working. Earl Stoddard and Clyde Wil- son are two other Miamians w...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 8 r Hiring Handicapped Veterans Is Urged by Banking Activist NEW YORK - Beat- rice McCann wants everybody to be "on board." To her, that phrase means in- volved in every way. That's what she expects of govern- ment, industry and the disabled veterans with whom she works, matching men to meaningful jobs. Miss McCann is personnel specialist for the Bankers Trust Company and the banking in- dustry representative on a presidential committee for hir- ing disabled veterans. Her own firm began hiring handicapped veterans in 1968. "We realized there was a segment of the population that nobody was using. We decided it was ridiculous. So we began working out our own system for contacting disabled veterans, telling them jobs were avail- able and matching men to jobs," Miss McCann said. "The Veteran's Adminis- tration (VA) had no time for us then, so we went through the back door. We talked to people in hospitals and veterans or- ganizations."...

>L I - I _ (- Farm & Ranch NOTEBOOK THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 PAGE 9 What is a Ranch Conservation Plan? If you are a rancher, chances are good that your ranch is within the boundaries of Starr County Soil and Water Conservation District since 93 per cent of land in farms and ranches in the United States is now in a district. Districts were created by local people under State laws to form a basis conserving soil, water, plant, and wildlife resources. Soil conservation districts have technical help available from the Soil Conservation Ser- vice (SCS) to assist you in deve- loping a conservation plan for your ranch. You can get this help and help from other a- gencies by making an applica- tion to the soil conservation dis- trict governing body. You ranch differently from anyone else because your land and range vegetation and ranch- ing needs are different from those of other people. Most ranchers are alike, however, in that they are constantly mak- ing plan...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 16 American Teens Meet Princess Grace Princess Grace kept a diary in her teen years and has given it to her daughter Caroline to read. That is one of the tidbits brought back to the United States by three 18-year-olds who were received by her royal highness at the palace on their award-winning trip to Europe. "But she advised us, good humoredly, that maybe it isn't a good idea to show diaries to daughters," said Janet Few of Wilmington, Del., one of the trio. The other pretty contest winners were Gay Dixon of La- kewood, Calif., and Dianne Risius of Bricelyn, Minn. The visit with the princess was the highlight of the fun- filled trip. They also discussed with her the trip she had made to Europe in her teens. "She made us feel relaxed because she was so casual," said blondish Dianne, as brown- eved Janet pointed out, "she didn't walk with the air of some magnificent creature. She was perfectly natural." She just wore face makeup and...

r ■ I- - THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 17 Here's How— More to College Than Studying Suddenly — there is house- keeping, when young people go off to college. After the tuition, board and room have been paid and the last few cents have been squeezed from the parents' ex- chequer for clothes, somebody remembers a student may need a wardrobe of cleaning aids and tools. About that time may come a foot-long list from the student dormitory advisory committee or whatever, sug- gesting cleaning aids needed by freshmen. The list may include broom, mop, wax, polish, iron, window cleaner, brushes, sewing aids and so on, if it runs true to form. Prodded by the remind- er, most mothers will throw in vitamin pills, nose drops and other medication a daughter or son may need occasionally. Fol- lowing this plan you can whittle away a $100 bill faster than you can say "broke." Chances are that Johnny and Mary will cart these cleaning accessories across the land to their dorms, an...

But it was their mpther who felt her age. "I'm 48 going on 101," laughed Willie May Mincey, a 4 foot-10 woman who defied odds of 17 million to one in giving birth to all boy quads. "I wonder how I ever made it," she said. "I'm trying to catch my breath." She and her husband Robert, 53, have five other children, aged 15-26. Mrs. Mincey followed a friend's suggestion when she named the quads after the four Biblical names from the New Testament. She said it took a year and identifying armbands before die could distinguish the boys. Sie said her husband "still doesn't know them apart yet and the poor teachers can't keep 'em straight at all." For Mrs. Mincey it's easy. "Matthew's the quiet one. Mark's the eater. He ea...
