**age Six (AttK.) SfAft Thursday* September 26, Outgoing president reviews club work At Tuesday's Kiwanis Club peeling at town and Country Restaurant president Gordon RefiMiaW Completed his lei-iti of office. October 1 begins a new administrative year in which Rtifus Mefhddft Hi will serve as president of the local club. ftefishaw used the program time to review the work of the club for the year he has served and to thank those of the membership who have made contributions to a successful year. Me contrasted his position as a minister of the Gospel and as president of the Kiwanis Club by saying that in the ministry a pastor did not brag on himself but gave God the glory and praise for whatever is accomplished, while it seems that civic clubs like to brag on their successful projects under the leadership of whomever served as president. The primary 1973-74 Kiwanis objective has been "Give of Yourself". This Renshaw has done as a Kiwanis leader, majoring on the first two of the six permanent objectives: l)to jjive primacy to the hliftian and spiritual rather than to the material values of life, and 2) To courage daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships. The retiring president gave praise to the chairmen who led their committee to accomplish those things they had set out to do. As he assumed his share of responsibility, he also pointed out points of weakness in some committees and made suggestions which, if followed, will produce more successful programs in the future. Renshaw's administrative year has seen the local club . grow from 55 to 72 members at this point. Fred Verser was officially inducted into the membership of Kiwanis by George Wright, Jr., chairman of the membership development committee. Sweeny Copeland was officially received as a' former club member returning to the fold.

(AP)Truman Altenbaumer of Hot Springs has been sentenced to one year in prison with six months suspended and fined $1,000 for his part in misapplying funds of an Arkansas bank. Altenbaumer, a former executive secretary of the slate Republican party, was sentenced in U.S. District Court. He is a former director of the Bank of Glenwood and the Pjke County Bank at Murfreesboro. He pleaded guilty July 8 to three misdemeanor charges of misapplication, but U.S. District Court Judge Oren Harris of El Dorado dismissed two of the charges and sentenced Altenbaumer on one count of misapplying funds when he was a director of the Pike County bank. Hilmon Duke of Glenwood, a former executive of both the Glenwood and Pike County banks, and Larry Ball of Hot Springs, who held several executive positions at the Glenwood bank, also were sentenced by Harris this week. Duke was fined $10,000 after pleading guilty to one felony count of conspiring to misapply bank funds. He was -given 15 days to pay the fine. Ball, who pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges when Altenbaumer did, was given a one-year suspended prison sentence on each count and fined $1,000. •> The world's highest measured sand dunes are those on the Saharan sand sea of Isaouane- N-Tiferine of east central Algeria at Latitude 26'42N, Longitude 6 43 E.

FRED VERSER inducted into Kiwanis Club By LEE JONES Associated Press Writer AUSTIN, Tex, (AP) Ousted University of Texas President Dr. Stephen Spurt was expected to announce today his decision to take to the courts his battle against University Chancellor Charles Le- Maistre and the board of regents. At the same time there was speculation that student groups may protest Spurr's dismissal, although the student senate Wednesday night voted hot to have any organized protest demonstrations. The regents voted 8-0 late Wednesday afternoon to uphold Chancellor LeMaistre's firing of Spurr, with Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson abstaining. Spurr hired lawyers, including Gerard Nugent, brother-in-law of Mrs. Johnson's daughter, Luci, and planned to hold a news conference this morning. The student senate approved a series of resolutions criticizing the dismissal on the basis that no reason was given for it. "As far as the students go, there is a lot of discussion of a student-faculty strike to emphasize to the legislature the ramifications of what has happened and the need for a change in the relationship between UT- Austin and the system office," Bill Parrish, student body vice- president, told reporters. LeMaistre came no closer to specifying his reasons for firing Spurr than he did in his original announcement of the dis : missal Tuesday afternoon. He said he had "declining confidence" in Spurr's decisions and felt that continuing him in his $49,000^a-year job "was not in the best interests of" UT-Austin. When asked later by reporters if he would declare his rea- sons for the dismissal, Le- Maisire said that would depend "upon the circumstances in the future." "1 would prefer to see this ended, and no continuing controversy if that can be achieved. On the other hand, if circumstances require it, I am prepared to reveal publicly whatever is necessary to justify this action," LeMaistre said. Spurr received a standing ovation earlier in the day from the Faculty Senate, which unanimously approved a motion deploring the dismissal and setting up a committee to investigate it. Spurr, 56, has been UT-Austin president since 1971 and is the first man to be fired from the job since the regents dismissed Homer Rainey in 1944. The regents' resolution specifies that the dismissal does not affect Spurr's standing as a tenured professor in the botany department and the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Spurr said he would remain on the faculty. Mrs. Johnson said she was "agonized" that the dismissal came "with such swiftness, f feel we have all ill-served the university." "No great educational institution can sustain its greatness with the frequent and sudden firing of its presidents and deans. Such actions have a severe and traumatic effect on the administration, the faculty and the student body," the former first lady said in a barely audible voice. She said she abstained, rath- er than voted "no," because • she was "unwilling to do ahjr< thing to uhdermihe- the chancellor's ability to run this Sys* tern." After the meeting, LeMaistre touched her arm and said, "Let me assure you 1 understand." "Oh, Dr. LeMaistre," she re* sponded. "1 understand," he repeated, walking away. In his speech to the Faculty Senate, Spurr recounted several occasions when, as he told it, he had bucked the regents and displayed his independence on' such matters as minority re-1 cruitment, construction and landscaping projects and free- i dom of expression. Spurr said LeMaistre verbally listed some of his complaints, SAVERS CHEVROLET FOR 1975, 5E FOR TODAY. ACCOUNT Per Annum - 48 Month Certificate .... $1,000 Per Annum-30 Mo. Certificate, Min.
