LeMaistre, who said Spurr has refused to resign, said he would have no more to say until he made a full report to the regents. Spurr said he knew nothing of the move to oust -him until Monday and would have no more to say until he knew further particulars. Other university officials had no comment. In a brief release through his administrative office, Le- Maistre pointed out that the chief administrative officer in each of the institutions in the statewide UT system "is responsible to the chancellor and has access to the board of regents only through the chancellor." "My action is based upon this unquestioned authority," Le- Maistre said. Royce Pendergrass, manager of the Third District Livestock Show currently underway here, brought the program to the Hope Lions luncheon meeting Monday at the Town and Country restaurant. The theme of this year's event is "More in '74" and from reports oh participation in parade, booth exhibits, stock exhibits, and entertainment, the show is living up to its —Frank King photo with Star camera ROYCE PENDERGRASS talks about Third District Livestock Show iheme. Before the official opening of the Fair, 60 barrows and 25 breeding swine were in the new hog barn; 25 steers and 70 breeding cows and 10 sheep. These figures are probably 20 percent above last year's. Pendergrass said that while 10 sheep did not sound like many, 10 worthy of exhibit out of the State's sheep population of 2000 was not bad at all. Food preservation is new this year with more than 200 entries. Arts and Crafts is growing every year. Mel TilliSj nationally-known country and western singer, along with his group heads the music program along with River City, Red Goodner and the Country Boys, Edna and the Misfits, and local talent. The rodeo is produced by Wing Ranch Rodeo Company, and the carnival by Sonny Myers. Pendergrass gave the group an idea of the tremendous amount of work and details that have to be attended to. He told how the FFA participation has grown from approximately 250 youths to about 2250 or more. Thirty-five thousand persons passed through the Fair gates last year, the speaker said. This year the Association is hoping for 50,000. A bright feature of the luncheon meeting was the annual visit by the Third District show queen contestants. The girls were presented by Wanda McJunkins of Red River Vo- Tech. They were Sallye Beth Jordan, 1974 queen; Hot Spring County; Charlene Gilbert, Hempstead County; Vicki Bailey, Columbia County; Cynthia Ethridge, Miller County; Jeri Bell, Howard County; Beth Ann McCroskey, Union County; Sheila Jo Ratcliff, Nevada County; Lisa Ann Wingfield, Clark County; and Teresa Collie, Hot Spring County. Pendergrass expressed thanks to the many people and organizations who worked for the show, the newspaper and radio coverage. In turn, the Lions Club expressed appreciation to Pendergrass and the work of the Red River Vo- Tech school in preparing for the Third District Livestock Show. Guests, in addition to the queen contestants, were Marion Fletcher, guest of Royce Pendergrass; Roger Stockslager, guest of Winston Davidson; Larry Barton, guest of Herman Wilson; Keith Schultz, guest of Bill Dwight; and Tommy Russell, guest of Elmer Smith.
