Following is an article on the county government in Duval County. The article, if anything, points out the pro- gress that Starr County has made since the start of the Dr. Mario E. Ramirez judgeship. # * * SAN DIEGO - One is in for a surprise if he expects the Duval County seat to be a busy, pros- perous-looking city of 4,490 people. Duval is a relatively wealthy county, - its tax valuations to- tal $159 million - but its county seat reflects nothing of the sort. San Diego, to the casual visitor, gives the impression that the city is impoverished and no one seems to care. There is no business district to speak of, and wh...

■ THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 8 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1973 Congress Returns From Month-Long Summer Recess THE QUEST FOR AN "IDEAL" SKIN CLEANSER Can you imagine a world without soap? The late B. Thurber Guild, M.D., did- some 30 years ago. Influ- enced by the results of a survey of 4,500 persons, which showed that many were hypersensitive to soap, he determined to find a substitute agent that would cleanse at least as well, but would be free of skin-irri- tating alkali, and as non- drying as possible. The physician was on the staff of Massachusetts Gen- eral Hospital, and an in- structor at Harvard Medical School at that time. That was in 1940. Some of Dr. Guild's col- leagues were surgeons who spent 15 to 20 minutes scrub- bing up before operations and often complained of constantly irritated hands. Nurses who had to wash their hands often suffered from rough, red, irritated, and cracked skin. In his quest for an "ideal" skin cleanser, Dr. Guild thought it should be formu- lated to...

5RALD PAGE 9 I' ^ ) Dr. Narrows Report by Dr. Ramiro Narro M.D. Starr County Medical Officer Mention a case of childhood poisoning and one generally thinks of a host of potentially lethal household substances which the child could have im- bibed, not knowing the dangers involved. But officials at the State Health Department are quick to emphasize that the dangers of poisoning are not restrict- ed to items within the home. Potential sources of poison thrive in backyards and gar- dens all across Texas. The little known sources of these poisons - common, garden- variety plants. Most plants are harmless. Many are poisonous under cer- tain conditions. A few are poisonous under nearly all con- ditions. More than 700 species of plants in the United States are known to have caused death or illness. Each year, about 12,000 children in this country chew or swallow potentially poisonous plants. The poisonous nature of a plant is caused by the pre- sence of one or more kinds of substances. Ther...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 10 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1973 Valley Catholic Schools Have Enrollment Increase While enrollment in Catholic schools elsewhere in the coun- try is continuing its downward trend, the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Brownsville have shown a three per cent increase in enrollment for the fall term of 1973. Sister Anne Finnerty, S.H.G., superintendent of schools for the Diocese, said that the eight elementary schools and for the elementary schools and the two high schools in the Diocese re- corded a collective enrollment of 2,741. "I feel optimistic about the fu- ture of Catholic schools in the Valley," said Sister Anne. 'T am very aware of the tremend- ous efforts of our Catholic par- ents to keep their schools not just open, but in good condi- tion." Sister Anne said it was too soon to evaluate the effects of the re- cent Supreme Court decision declaring government aid to private schools unconstitution- al. Regarding the future of Valley Catholic schools, ...

• - 2 Trapped Britons Rescued From Sub City Sues Padres CORK, Ireland — Two Britons trapped since Wednes- day in a midget submarine 1,- 375 feet below the Anemic and down to their final air supplies viere hauled to the surfiice to- day and transferred safely to their mother ship. "Both men look as if they are fit enough to play football, and they send their love to their wives," the mother ship Vick- ers Voyager radioed. A Viekers spokesman said both men climbed out of the minisub under their own power. He ."Slid they would go by heli- copter to Cork and then fly to Barrow, England for a reunion with their families. The message tapped three days of alternating despair and optimism in a race against the clock to save the men, Roger Mallinson, who observed his 35th birthday in the sub Friday, and Roger Chapman, 28. Air supplies in the submarine were due to run out 90 minutes before the two were lifted to the surfece. Emergency oxygen supplies from face masks made the difference betwee...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 14 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1973 Richardson9s Decision On signeiv Certain To Draw IVIuch Criticism 3 4 '4 WASHINGTON - The Nixon administration's white knight, Atty. Gen. Elliot L. Richardson, has splashed into quicksand that threatens to overshadow the ambitious goals he has set for himself and the Justice Department. Richardson soon must decide whether to press ahead with ex- tortion and bribery allegations against Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, a fellow Republican. He must decide — and in- struct the U.S. attorney in Bal- timore — whether any evidence concerning Agnew that might be developed informally by the prosecutor and his assistants warrants presentation under oath to a special federal grand jury investigating political kick- backs in Maryland. Richardson says the decision will be his alone. And no matter what the deci- sion is, it seems virtually cer- tain to draw criticism and cost Richardson some of the support he needs to restore the public imag...

Estimates are that approxi- mately 19 per cent of students altering medical school this fall are women, compared with 16.8 per cent in 1972, 13.7 per cent in 1971 and 11.1 per cent in 1970. At Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, one of the nation's largest colleges of medicine, with an enrollment of more than 800 medical students, women will make up 21.8 per cent of this fall's entering class. Dr. Jerome Parneil, chairman of the committee on admissions, says the increase in the percentage of medical students represents a sharp in- crease in the number of women applying for admission to medi- cal schools. Figures compiled by the As- sociation of American Medical Colleges indicate that, in 1972, 16 per cent of all m...
