WANT ADS WORK WONDERS - CALL 872-3033 Corsicana Daily Sun Open student discussions on racial issues proposed FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1975 A subcommittee of the Cor sicana schools’ Human Relations Committee decided Thursday to recommend to the committee that a group of students be permitted to meet and discuss racial issues affecting the schools. The subcommittee also decided to recommend that Bob Armistead and Mrs. George Marshall be moderators of the discussion. The committee will meet Monday at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the recommendations. If the discussion group proves to be beneficial, it is expected to be the starting point for other similar discussions. Students Beef cattle committee formulates five-point program for cattlemen By COL. PAUL BENNETT County Beef Cattle Chairman The cow-calf operator has a lean period with real financial problems in front of him. To combat those problems, the Navarro County Beef Cattle Committee has formulated goals and guidance for the cattlemen in our county based on a five-point program as follows: (1) Calf crop: concentrate on increasing weaning weights and prevent cows from weaning a calf. (2) Begin and maintain herd records: from these records, many management decisions may be made. Each cow should be permanently identified in some way. (3) Herd health: begin a herd health program for internal and external insects and diseases after conferring with a veterinarian. (4) Forage: strive to develop a year round grazing program and high quality hay for winter feeding. (5) Marketing: plan to market the type of animal that brings the best return for time and money invested. At current low prices, an old cow will bring as many total dollars for beef as a young cow and more than a yearling heifer. Market those old cows whose useful life is over. Market the cow that is open or crippled in some way. When the non-producers or near non-producers are gone, look at overall reduction in number of mother cows. Market the bottom 25 per cent of your producers. Using herd records, replace some of the culled cows with heifers selected from top producers. After reducing the herd size, extra forage should be available. Instead of selling those weaned calves at eight months weighing 350-400 pounds, keep them as stockers and grow them out, up to 750-800 pounds if forage is available. Examine the economics of this practice. The 400-pound steer is worth maybe $22-cwt or $88. By weighing him you put more weight on and as he increases in weight, the value per pound goes up. At 700 pounds the steer may sell for $26-cwt or $182. This market is unique to the current feed cost situation and is still unfamiliar to most. The Beef Cattle Committee feels that if these management actions are taken, the cattle raisers’ future position will be strengthened as he will end up with a young, better performing herd and be in a good position to fully participate in a rising market. Reduce cow numbers by culling old, weak, crippled, non-producers and low producers. Use the forage available to grow calves. Ruling expected on motions by Brooks’ defense lawyer Navarro Courthouse HOUSTON (AP) - State District Court Judge William M. Hatten was expected to rule today on defense motions that have delayed start of formal testimony in the mass murders case trial of David Owen Brooks. Hatten and state and defense attorneys spent most of Thursday studying three written statements attributed to Brooks. Although facing four murder charges, Brooks, 20, is on trial only in the death of William Lawrence, 15, one of 27 victims of the sex-torture case. Jim Skelton, defense counsel, has asked Hatten, to rule that no death other than that of Lawrence may be mentioned during the trial. Skelton also wants the statements quashed on grounds they were not given voluntarily to police. In Tuesday’s brief court proceedings without the jury being present, Asst. Dist. Atty. Don Lambright said he planned to introduce only parts of the statements. Hatten had copies of the statements made and then recessed the proceedings to permit determination of which portions might be acceptable. Asst. Dist. Atty. Mike Hinton earlier had told Love he was present when Brooks gave the third written statement and that the statement was “com­ pletely voluntary.” Hinton said earlier statements by Brooks made no mention of Lawrence. “We needed a statement relating to one specific offense,” Hinton said. Lambright read from the statement Wednesday, quoting Brooks as saying he saw Lawrence after the youth had been tied to a bed at the home of Dean Arnold Corll, 33. Mass murder victims linked with HOUSTON (AP) - Juvenile officers say 11 boys who were victims in the Houston mass murders case are pictured in sex material seized in what police called a homosexual ring. Police said Thursday they have identified 32 of the thousands of youths in the pictures and films. Juvenile Officer Johnny Freeman said most of the youngsters are from the Heights area of Houston and a few questioned from the Bomball area moved there within the past year. The case became public last week when four men were charged with sexual abuse of a child. They are Bryant A. Burch, 31, Leonard E. Cunningham, 29, John Jennings, 40, and Alfred Van Dyke, 35. Officers Ed Greenstein, Audrey Davies and Freeman said they were told by youngsters involved in the case they were paid $15 to $20 for “being in a movie” and they did not know sex ring that was against the law. Reels of films show youngsters, some as young as 8 and 9, engaging in sex acts, Greenstein said. Distribution of the film ranged as far as Sweden and Austria, authorities claimed. The officers said postal inspectors and the Internal Revenue Service have been working on the case. Police estimated they have more than 10,000 color photos of unclad children in various poses, more than 1,000 reels of film, 200 magazines and a number of paperback books. Some of the youngsters in the pictures now are legal adults, leading officers to believe the business has been going on locally for some years. Hospital > Patient total at midnight Thursday was 115.

No school officials will be present, if the subcommittee’s recommendation is adopted. The subcommittee was appointed by Chairman Don Bowen to study student discussions on racial issues held by students at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas. CHS Principal Mark Culwell told the subcommittee Thursday afternoon that in checking he found that the Dallas program involved federal funds and that students were paid to attend. He said the program was not actually done through the schools, and that the Dallas school officials were not satisfied with the program. The subcommittee decided not to recommend the Dallas program as a guide. It was agreed to recommend instead that Culwell ask for volunteers for a discussion group to meet once from 30 minutes to an hour during the school day. “If we can take (school) time out for a pep rally, we can take time out for this,” Culwell said. Members hope to secure student volunteers from all races and segments of school life, hoping to get some, as Culwell expressed, “who aren’t satisfied and would be willing to express themselves and not get so emotionally involved.” There are some reservations expressed in the meeting about whether students would volunteer. A poll in the school paper, the Jungle Beast Journal, on whether students would be interested brought no response, Alfreda Wright reported. Members agreed to recommend the program to be tried to see what response is forthcoming. Mrs. W.H. Balcom Jr. was appointed by Bowen to present the subcommittee’s report to the full committee. In addition to hearing that report Monday the committee will also consider an offer from the Center for Public School Ethnic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin to give committee members some training, Bowen said.

Commencement exercises were scheduled for the NC Technical Arts Auditorium today at 3:30 p.m. for 21 academy trainees. (Sun Staff Photo By Jim Bush) A 2^-year-old Corsicana motorist was arrested early Friday south of Richland following a high speed chase by Sgt. Melvin Byrd. Police Information Officer Lewis Palos said the motorist was jailed pending his appearance in city for filing of charges of fleeing from an officer and speeding in excess of 110 in a 55 mile zone at the south city limits on IH-75. Byrd began the chase when he observed the car travelling at a high rate of speed at South Highways 287 and 75 business route, and overtook the car two miles south of Richland when no other police units were near enough to come to his radioed calls for assistance or setting up roadblocks ahead, Palos said. Asst. Chief Doug Hightower was making a follow-up investigation Friday into the ownership of abandoned fishing gear and two children’s tricycles found Thursday in a creek in Community Park. The recovered items picked up and brought to police headquarters by Officer J.W. Dunlap included besides the tricycles three fishing rods and reels and a tackle box. Asst. Chief Hightower investigated a theft complaint Thursday afternoon from Bob Whipkey, 607 Stamford. Whipkey reported assorted tools valued at $150 and some soccer ball equipment stolen from his garage. One drunk arrest was made Thursday by Officer James Ijongorio. No injuries resulted from three accidents yesterday. Sgt. G.W.
