-1 - •« Ftln Glasses Make News In Fashion Fun glasses have become an important fashion accessory for men and women. According to Becky Dunlap, clothing specialist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, an endless variety of exciting designs and lens and frame col- ors have contributed to the ac- ceptance and popularity of this accessory item. "Fun glasses may be worn year round to coordinate with every possible mood and cos- tume," Miss Dunlap said. "But don't confuse fun glasses with sunglasses. They aren't the same!" Fun glasses are easily dis- tinguished by their light lens colors that range from softest pastels to bright colors. On the other hand, sunglasses in dark sage green or neutral gray col- ored lenses, give optimum col- or perception and glare protec- tion. "Secondly," the Texas A&M University specialist said, "fun lenses are more commonly plastic, while sunglasses are glass. Price is another important factor. Fun glasses often cost less than sunglasses. Howev...

JEyQL x IBS AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Pres- ton Smith is threatening a spe- cial legislative session on in- surance reform. In a statewide, televised speech, he announced he will ask the Legislature to abolish the paid, three-member State Insurance Board, which he charges is company dominated. Angered by Senate rejection July 7 of his longtime friend, Larry Teaver, to the Board, Smith blamed the defeat on the "powerful insurance lobby." His recommendations to "completely reorganize and re- form the regulation of the in- surance industry" will be de- livered to a special session this year or to the next regular ses- sion in January. Reaction to his speech, the Governor said, will determine whether he goes through with the special call. He feels reorganization of the Board can be achieved only in a limited special session, but he isn't sure whether the public yet supports reform strongly enough to insure action. Dallas Sen. Oscar Mauzy, a leader in the move to reject Teaver, challenged Smi...

J j r THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 11 4 From the desk of Dr. Ramiro Narro County Medical Officer Some say "everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it." Howev- er, the truth is that all of us, assuming normalcy, are con- stantly doing something about it. Each of us is equipped with our own private thermostat. When changing weather condi- tions cause the atmospheric temperature to vary from the 98.C degrees F. at which the body temperature of a healthy human being lias been standar- dized, the thermostat triggers the mechanism which helps the body maintain its normal tem- perature. One of the most remarkable facts of human physiology is that the temperature of warm- blooded animals remains un- changed at 98.G degrees, even though ttie temperature of the surrounding environment may vary from below zero to over 100 degrees. Provided the air is perfectly dry, a man can exist and main- tain normal body temperature in an atmosphere that will ...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 12 Of AUSTIN — A recent state- wide survey shows 22 per cent of Texans, or 2.G million, are poor compared to a nationwide rate of 13 per cent. Further, Texas accounts for nearly 10 per cent of the na- tion's poor. Texas Office of Economic Opportunity submitted the 300- page report to Governor Pres- ton Smith, terming it the most comprehensive study ever un- dertaken among the Texas poor. The Rio Grande Valley area was shown as having the highest incidence of poverty in the state — 42.2 per cent of the popula- tion. East Texas was next with 29 per cent poverty rate. The East Texas and Lower Rio Grande Valley areas also have the smallest proportion of persons completing high school. About 05 per cent of the heads of poor households are em- ployed, and 70 per cent of those have fulltime permanent jobs, according to the study. However, low income levels make it difficult for these per- sons to bring their families out of poverty. Guid...
