T' CONGRESSMAN KIKA de la GARZA Reports i WASHINGTON, D.C.—Blessed with a boutiful harvest, the in- habitants of the Plymouth Com- munity is Massachusetts came together for a fall festival one day 351 years ago. Out of that gathering, dedicated not only to feasting, but more import- antly, to expressing gratitude to the Almighty for His benefi- cence, grew a uniquely Ameri- can holiday. Its emergence was gradual. In 1789, George Washington pro- claimed a day of thanksgiving in honor of the Nation's new Constitution, a document that has served Americans weU through almost two centuries. Seventy-four years later, on October 3, 1863, President Lin- coln by presidential proclama- tion designated the last Thurs- day of November as Thanks- giving Day. Each succeeding President made a similar proclamation annually until 1939 when Pre- sident Franklin D. Roosevelt changed the date to the third Thursday in the eleventh month. This action was followed by considerable controversy. It became ap...

i , THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERAT !) PAGE 7 Closed Meeting Ruling Made Atty. Gen. Crawford Martin ruled today that governmental bodies may hold closed meetings with their attorneys, but only for limited purposes. Martin issued a detailed in- terpretation of the Texas Open Meetings Law to Criminal Dis- trict Atty. Tom Hanna of Beau- mont, who had asked about limitations on county commis- sioners' courts. The opinion extends to all state and local government bodies. Despite the f&ct that the law grants no specific exemption, Martin said, "a public body is entitled to hold closed meetings with its attorney when such '•xjy seeks the attorney's ad- in regards to pending or .emplated litigation, settle- t offcers and similar mat- I jfs where the duty of a public body's counsel to his client, pursuant to the rules and ca- nons of the State Bar of Texas, clearly conflicts with" the open meetipf-~ .

SB THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1972 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 8 Immunization Law Proves Successful In Its First Year Of Implementation Texas school children and some of the common childhood diseases, hopefully, will soon no longer be frequent compan- ions. Thanks to a mandatory school immunization law being Implemented by state and local health authorities, Texas school children have the best protec- tion against disease outbreaks they have ever had In the his- tory of the state. After the first full year since Implementation of the new state law began, state health officials report Immunization levels of the school population are up considerably over previous years. And early indications this year are that those im- munization levels will continue on the upswing. As of May 1, 1972, the great majority of all school children in Texas had begun or com- pleted their required Immuni- zation program for five common childhood diseases: diphther- ia, polio, measles, rubella, and tetanus.

I have heard many school children referring to this holiday as "turkey day," but that really kind of cuts the real meaning of this dav of Thanksgiving, iust as 1 believe that "X-Mas" leaves out tiie most important part of Christmas. A day of reunions and renewed thankfulness for the many blessings which we "harvest" each year, it is a time to think of family, friends, and faith in the source of these many blessings. * ♦ * * Several families were thankful to be together last weekend.

Texas will receive some $276,000 for expanding its 4-H program.

The Extension Service is the par- ent organization of 4-H. "Such an increase would mean a doubling of our present en- rollment of 125,000 members," notes Stormer. Expansion efforts will initially concern the addition of new staff members to give added impetus and direction to 4-H activities.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1972^THE RIO GRANDE HERALD r \GE 23 - -h- *7 STATE r iHml r AUSTIN, Tex. — A total re- vision of the finance system for Texas public schools will be reviewed by the State Board of Education at a special meeting December 9. The plan, which would hand to the state over a six-year period the entire cost of the basic pub- lic school program, was sub- mitted by a board public school finance committee November 11. A three-judge federal court last December, in San Antonio held unconstitutional the pre- sent school finance formulas which are based heavily on lo- cal property taxes. The deci- sion, now on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, concluded the system provides educational advantages for pupils in rich districts over those in poor dis- tricts. Under the five-member fin- ance panel's recommendations, the state would assume the "comprehensive foundation school program" cost com- pletely from state taxes by 1978— 1979.
