If so, then you are probably fimi- liar with the infinite number of home remedies which are available on the market today. You may also be aware of the fact that a great number of these cure-alls and pseudo- medicines do not work. Billions of dollars are spent each year in the United States on quack medicines and secret potions by today's modern con- sumer. The elderly are particularly victimized because with old age come many minor aches and pains and a few major ones. Many older folks hesitate to consult a competent physician and choose to prescribe for themselves, instead, through mail-order cures or door-to- door health consultants. The re- sult is that they are bilked out of their money and disappoin- ted when ...

THE RIO GRANDE HERALD THURSDAY.

Pre- ston Smith lias launched a "back-to-the-people" campaign Which includes 72 stops. Briscoe, campaigning Tues- day in San Antonio, called for an abrupt halt to the practice through which state legislators have traded off jobs for their children and other relatives. "We need a stronger state ne- potism law," he told a news conference before beginning a tour of San Antonio college campuses. "This practice vio- lates the spirit of the law, if it is not an actual violation. And if it is not a violation, then it should be made a violation." Briscoe also proposed a pro- gram of hiring more members of minority groups to state agencies. "1 don't necessarily believe in quotas, but it is ob- vious we need larger parti cita- tion for minorities in job oppor- tunitie...

The Sheriff's race that is. The Rio Grande Herald has studied the qualification of each declared and serious candidate for Starr Coun- ty Sheriff. J.M. (Chema) Alvarez, Rene A. Solis, Reymundo Alvarez, Roberto Pena, Raul Pena and even the ones that dropped out of the race. We sincerely believe that J.M. (Chema) Alvarez is not only the best qualified as far as law enforcement here in Starr County but is the best man anyone can eiect for the post of Starr County Sheriff. It used to be that you had to be a member of the American Medical Association to hold political office here, but all one has to do is look at the present sher- iff and his felony federal conviction to conclude that membership in the AMA does not really carry any real weight.

Especially if they're girl watchers. This was an opinion quickly reached the other day at Six Flags over Texas, the amuse- ment park—the owners like to call it a "theme park," which it is. Out in the middle of the park- ing lot was an attractive young blonde waving her arms wildly and pointing. She was a park- ing attendant, a job once held here only by young men. Inside, on one of the train rides, who was the engineer? Another young woman. This brownette ran things with a sure hand. Train didn't jump the track once, which is a bet- ter record than some of the vet- eran big-train engineers have. But most liberating of all—if you want to call it that—was the discovery that the street sweepers this year are females. Somehow it seems that liber- ating women to sweep streets— actmlly the walkways here—is PHARMACY TO...
