THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 7 L ¥. -i - - CAP operation Supersede A research and demonstra- tion program has been develo- ped here in RioGrande City, sponsored by the Community Action Council of South Texas. This program is unique; there is no other program like it in the country sponsored or ope- rated by an OEO funded agency or by any other agency. The program is designed to improve the quality of livestock through artificial insemination using registered, progeny-tested bulls. The program will also try and establish a coopera- tion or association of parti- cipants in the hope that this organization or association may eventually operate its own pro- gram. Planning and actual prepa- ration for the program has been taking place since December of last year. Four men who were already working with the agency were selected to receive train- ing in nutrition, anatomy, mana- gement, pregnancy testing, and the actual technique of insemi- nation.

I THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 8 Wealth On $4,800 A Year Ratliff May Resign In September, 1957, a little less than 15 years, a young man named Ben Barnes decided on making a stab at getting through the University of Texas law school without monej^ without in- fluence, without friends able to help out. This young man (19 years old at the time) got a part-time job at the Texas State Health Department as a punch card operator. This didn't provide enough money to support his wife, Martha and go to law school at the same time, so he started selling vacuum cleaners from door to door. And he did well at it, selling 12 of the cleaners in the first month and clearning nearly $500. He never made it through the law school, though, because politics intervened. On May 21, 1971, after some 11 years in state politics as a member of the House, Speaker * the House and lieutenant gov- erned this same young man is- sued what he claimed to be a full fl"j.ncial statement showing a...

Secretary of State Bob Bul- lock advised the local party of- ficials to prepare immediately detailed estimates of their out- lays. Bullock sent out forms and these instructions immediately after Gov. Preston Smith signed a new law providing $2 million in state aid to finance the pri- maries: * Only when sworn estimates are returned and reviewed will state checks be prepared in the amount of three-fourths of the total expense. Additional war- rants will be drawn after the election. * Prior expenses (before the new state financing law) which exceed the amount of candidates' filing fees and contributions will not be paid by the state ~ unless cancelled and re-negotiated on new contracts. * The new state law does not ■y b'll boykin permit any state reimbursement of expenditures for precinc...

She yearns to become a doc- tor. And she Intends to make that dream come true, no mat- ter the time, effort and sacri- fice required. But that dream was sparked, she admits, by an innovative health careers program under- way at San Antonio's University of Texas Medical School. Started two years ago for Edgewood High School students, the program is a pilot project to expose financially disadvan- taged youngsters and those from minority ethnic groups to the countless jobs open in the health fields today. Although a multitude of health careers projects are un- derway these days, most are sporadic in their efforts and, as a result, have failed to attract the large number of young peo- ple needed to help relieve the tremendous shortages in all ar- eas of the health professions.

Although much of the crop is beginning to head, yield pros- pects are poor. Much of the dryland wheat acreage is being grazed. Irrigated wheat is mak- ing good growth on the High Plains.
