Limestone County Democratic Chairman, is out to prove that it is not. He has set a goal of one thousand in attendance for the final pre-electicn rally, set for Thursday night in Groesbeck, and said Tuesday, "It now begins to look as if the 1000 figure may be considerably exceeded," slating that word is coming from each voting box in the county that there will be delegations present for the (Iroesbeck Democratic Rally.

Third In A Series AAexia Airs Its Problems EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third of four articles dealing with financial problems of the Mexia Independent School District. This series is particularly designed to acquaint people in Mexia and surrounding towns with the student transfer issue, from a financial standpoint. Money is hard to come by for public educational services. Our local people, just as people everywhere, are faced with mounting tax obligations from federal, state and local sources. We simply cannot afford to subsidize when we can't provide adequately for our own. Your school board, your administrators, and your teachers are acutely conscious of this problem — how to obtain the funds needed to do the job you want done. We give this problem daily, serious consideration. Your board also has to take serious cognizance of the following items: For the past five years, the average per capita cost of operating expenses in our district has been $288 per student, and we've had an average of 1,595 students each year during this period. If we add to the operating costs, all other expenses, including our bonded expenses, then the total per capita cost per student is $310 per year, each year for that five year period. During these same five years, 1960-64, the total per capita revenue has been $312 per student. It doesn't take much of a mathematician to see this isn't a big operating margin in our favor. And, during the same five years, the cost to the Mexia schools, for handling an average of 149 transfer students a year has been $11,701 per year — out of local sources. Teenager Kills Himself Playing Russian Roulette NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP)— Thomas Carter, 19, son of Pulitzer Prize-winning editor Hodding Carter, killed himself playing Russian roulette at his father's New Orleans residence Monday night. Alice Monroe, 20, member of a socially prominent New Orleans family, witnessed the fatal shooting. Sam Moran, investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner's office, said Miss Monroe told him that she went with Carter to his father's residence shortly before 10 p.m. The youth had staged a party there Sunday night, she said, and had returned to clean up the place. Miss Monroe told Moran that Carter pulled a revolver from beneath a sofa, removed all but one cartridge from the cylinder and told her he was going to play Russian roulette. She told Moran that Carter put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger. The gun fired and he slumped forward. An autopsy was ordered. The youth's father, publisher of the Delta Democrat-Times at Greenville, Miss., has been spending some time in New Orleans as writer-in-residence at Tulane University. The publisher and his wife have been in Detroit, Mich., where he was undergoing treatment at Ford Hospital. New Orleans relatives said young Carter was a prize-winning horseman while attending Culver Military Academy, in Culver, Ind. He had been attending Tulane University since early this year. The "Craters of the Moon" are located in Idaho. MARKET REPORT NEW YORK (AP) - Stocks opened mixed in moderately active trading today. Chrysler was up % at 45 7 «, westinghouse Electric up "2 at 33% and American Telephone off '/K at 141'/a. Anaconda eased JH to 43%. New York Central lost ',4 at 34 l /n, Jonathan Logan recovered at 18, Eastern Air Lines was up IK at 36'it and Ford was off at 55 7 s. Electrical & Musical Industries lost '* at 7'.-a and American Tobacco declined '/s at 34!-«. Reynolds Tobacco lost : !s at 48' K . Allied Chemical gained ',.« at 54 ; :.|. American Motors was unchanged. Santa Fe and Sears, Roebuck added fractions. Bethlehem and Montgomery Ward dropped fractions. Let's roll that ball by slowly, again: The cost for transfer students, that is paid out of Mexia Independent School District local funds, by district taxpayers, is an average of $11,701 per year for the past five years. This is no small amount of money. The total costs stack up this way: from all sources, costs for these students average $46.215 per year. Out-of-district funds from all sources bring us an average of $34,514. Mexia district taxpayers make up the $11,701 deficit each year. There are those who will point out that as the transfer students enter our school, it is possible for us to hire more teachers. It is just as true that were it not for the 150 transfers a year, we would need 13 teachers, where we have 17. So, there is no financial advantage to Mexia in this instance. Also, we would be able to have classes of 20 as opposed to classed of 25 to 35 students — thereby increasing the quality of offerings. We do not wish to lose our transfer students, for this ends a relationship between the people inside the Mexia district and their neighbors, that ha.s been friendly, and of value; to each for many years past. We welcome the transfers, and wish to give them the same opportunities for a quality education we would give our own. But, we cannot honestly continue this traditional service unless some method is found for underwriting that part of our operations which only tuition, in fair measure, can remedy. We must be fair to our own people as well as to the 1 parents of our transfers. Roving Reporter By BOB WRIGHT Disarmament—total or partial — could he discussed anywhere, anytime, but probably wouldn't be "settled" in any argument or disussion. It's a sore spot to many. Nobody seems to agree on the many-sided question of. disarmament. Disarmament is noble in theory, but we do not think it would work. Apparently, the persons will) whom we discussed this thorny problem, think the same. The question is ''do you favor total, or partial, disarmament? Why?" ir if it MRS. CARL MAISEN: "I'm in favor of partial disarmament. 1 think we must maintain most of our weapons for our well-being and for keeping our freedoms secure." it it it JOE LUCAS, student: "Total disarmament? That would be foolish. I'm in favor of a slight slowdown in production of weapons of a nuclear nature. In total disarmament, a small nation could rule the world simply because there could be no effective safeguards to insure a totally-disarmed world." * it it
