STATE'S BIG MONEY BILL IS SENT TO CONFERENCE By United Prese A Senate-House conference committee Friday began efforts to iron out differences of more than $6 million in a general appropriations bill and speed it to final passage. The $166 million measure which would cover state expenses the next two years was sent to the committee Thursday when the House refused to go along with the Senate version. The Senate-approved bill, calling for expenditures of more than $6 million above a similar bill passed by the House, would include pay increases for state employes and college teachers. Members of both chambers quit until Monday after sending the money bill to the conference committee. Baker Says No Ammo Shortage Earlier a joint session heard an address by Col. Royal N. Baker of McKinney, the world's leading jet ace. Baker told the legislature United o Sat.

He said the Air Force has enough ammunition and "we gladly give It to the MIGs and the Communists." Baker, who returned home this week after downing 12 MIGs in less than a year, said the United States1 F-86 Sabrejet is superior to the Reds' MIG-15. before the House adjourned Thursday, it gave final approval to a bill regulating "speed traps" in small cities located in metropolitan counties, while the Senate passed and sent to Gov. Allan Shivers a bill' sponsors said would afford tax relief to theater owners. The anti-speed trap measure would authorize the state highway department to make surveys of speed signs and signals in towns under 2,500 population located in counties with more than 250,000 residents. It was introduced by Vernon Smith of Fort Worth. The present state tax begins at 51 cents on theater admissions, and is levied at a 10 per cent rate. The measure passed by the Senate Thursday would set the tax at three cents on admissions between 81 cents and 90 cents; five cents on admissions between 91 cents and one dollar, and after that an additional penny on each additional 10 cents or fraction. Lawmakers were urged by the Austin branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers, to enact legislation designed to curb pollution of Texas streams. E. W. Steel, member of the Austin group, said unless pollution is curbed, industrialization must stop in some areas of the state or a system of re-use of water must be introduced. Such a system, he said, has been in effect on the Ruhr River in Germany, and has had no bad effects on the health of the water consumers. However, he said the process of re-use is expensive and can be avoided if Texas streams, such as the West Fork of the Trinity, are cleared up. He said Dallas has been unable to tap the Trinity because of its "present notoriously polluted condition." POPPIES UNCOVERED MEXICO CITY, March 27 (Jf-Opium poppies have been found growing in Coahuila state across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas the Defense Ministry reported Thursday. The illegal plantings had been confined to northwestern border states. 2 GREAT HITS FIRST SHOW STARTS AT 7:10 'MAM WtSTMINOi VOU IHi MOT- w wfmm KtKM. M ROMANO mU m uxniMiNW v I M fV ...
