Accountants Work to Weed Out Unsound Insurance Companies Bf BOB BYEBS AUSTIN, Tex. 1*1 — Texas' 2,600 certified public accountants have been enlisted by the state insurance commission to weed out with- SB a year insurance companies "which are unsound and unsafe and unworthy of the public confidence." The vast audit was projected by fee commission yesterday as a state Judge called for a new Travis County (Austin) grand jury to investigate .diligently what he called the "recent insurance debacle." The audits will be aimed only at the approximately, 1,400 firms chartered and headquartered in Texas. The companies will have to bear the expense of examination. The board promised prompt action against any company that re- fuses to make its records available for CPA examination. "It will be our policy to suspend that company's license to sell insurance immediately and send our regular examiners into the firm within 48 hours to make a thorough audit," 1 Commissioner Garland Smith said. The commission said it hope: by use of the CPAs to complete in one year "the process of weeding those evils out of Texas insurance which might continue for several years" if the commission used only its "normal procedures and normal staff."

Especially in Neillsville, Wis. There officials permitted teacher Eunice Richardson, right, to park her mobile home next to Benjamin School so she could keep an eye on her 81-year-old mother, Evangeline, seated. This unique arrangement lets Miss Richardson make frequent visits during the day to see if her mother is all right. It also eases the teacher shortage.

Economists now say we move in cycles instead of running around in circles. It may sound better, but It means the same. They say there's nothing as frequent as "an occasional drink." To his dog, every man is a hero; hence the popularity of dogs. Try cooking your rext pork chops this way for a change from the same old fried ones. Spread a small amount of mustard over the chops and do buy the loin chops, not the cheap, first, cuts, though as whit-leather. Dredge the chops 'in seasoned flour and brown on both sides in hot fat. Arrange them in a glass baking dish that you can serve from at the table, pour a can of chicken- rice soup over them and bake at 350 degrees for anout 40 minute.

Well here's the poem in its entirety and was written by John Alexander Joyce: ' • n "You must leave your many millions and the gay and festive crowd; "Though you roll in royal billion* There's no pocket in a shroud."
