Houstonian Astrodomain President HOUSTON (AP) - Directors of Astrodomain Corp. have named Houston business executive Reuben W. Askanase as president and board chairman of the corporation. Askanase was named on the recommendation of Roy Hofheinz who asked to be removed from “minute-by-minute” duties of the corporation, it was disclosed Thursday. The statement said Hofheinz will now carry the title of senior board chairman. A source close to the scene said there was little significance in the changes. “All it amounts to is the Hofheinz family asking Askanase to move in and help,” the source said. A news release said Askanase, 63, is a longtime friend and associate of Hofheinz and was described by Hofheinz as a ‘‘strong, two-fisted businessman, widely and favorably known in financial circles.” Hofhemz said Askanase would strengthen the management team which operates what he called “the most original and effective stadium and entertainment complex in the world.” Askanase, a businessman, civic leader and philanthropist, said there would be no changes in management responsibilities. Hofheinz and Askanase expressed confidence in the operations management of John D. O’Connell, senior vice president and chief operations officer of Astrodomain. Askanase is a consultant and director of Questor Corp. He was board chairman and chief executive officer of the company when it was known as Dunhill International, Inc. He is a former top official with Spaulding Sporting Goods Co. and has served as a director of Rice Food Markets of Houston and Houston National Bank. The Astrodomain Corp. includes the Astrodome, Astrodome hotels and motels, As- troworld, Astrohall and the Houston Astros of the National Baseball League. Rumors that the Astrodomain Corp. was for sale were reported in August 1970. Estimates of its value then was $65 to $75 million. The rumors were generated by Hofheinz’ ill health and formation of the corporation which operated the formerly individual businesses. TB Tests Are Given At Navasota NAVASOTA - More than 2,200 students, faculty members and administrators of the Navasota Independent School District received tuberculosis mantoux tests, administered by representatives of the State Department of Health. The tests were requested by the Navasota school trustees after a student who transferred out of the district in December was shown to have an active case of the lung disease. The tuberculosis tests are routinely administered to students in the first and seventh grades, but were given this week on a compulsory school-wide basis, according to superintendent John C. Webb. The tests will be read this week by State Health Department nurses. Farm Bureau Picks Price For Board PLANTERSVILLE - Morgan L. (Bob) Price was recently named representative of Farm Bureau District 11 on the Texas Farm Bureau board of directors. He succeeds Ed L. Woodin of Fresno who resigned last fall. Price, a native of Montgomery County, was graduate from Montgomery High School and attended Tarleton State College one year. He has served on the board of directors of the Gruñes County Farm Bureau since it was organized in 1953-two terms as president.
