Explains Budget "The $81,694 budget s**t up for McLennan County is divided into three portions. Service, disaster, veterans, military, and administrative funds constitute £35.402. Financing of the county’s portionof the blood bank will take $13.887. Th#» remainder, $32,395» will be sent to the national headquarters of the Red Cross,” stated Barrett. In Summer's talk he pointed out the many n*»eds to be fulfilled by the new Central Texas regional blood bank. According to the speaker, many persons have the idea that the blood bank system to be set up in Waco is some, thing new. However, as many as 44 such centers are already in operation throughout the country. Rhows Need for Blood Summers illustrated the need for blood for civilian purposes by pointing out that during the last war the military’ suffered 602,000 casualties, but during the same period 36.000.000 civilians were hospitalized. There were six times as manv amputations for civilians during the war years as for the milltarv in the same period. At the close of the meeting blood donors pledge cards were passed out and signed by the club members. 01 SWEETEN A Sour STOMACH Half-Size Fashion w/r-Wh PHILLIPS' MILK OF MAGNESIA TABLETS IRIKS MIC* um-nM¥0*f9 * here's your TV buy! ?199?5 only Iww ~ for 17 Inch TABU MODEL vod most dopondoblo Culberson to Run Again HOUSTON, Feb. 19 (IP —Oiln Culberson, chairman of the Texas Railroad commission, said here Monday night he’d seek re-election.

Court Suit Is Filed on GOP Party Pledge SAN AINTTONIO, Feb. 19 —A suit to throw out the party loyalty pledge approved by the Texas Republican Executive committee last Saturday touched off another battle Tuesday between Taft and Eisenhower partisans in the GOP. Charles M. Dickson, San Antonio attorney and candidate for congressman at large on the Republican ticket, filed suit in 37th district court Monday for a writ of mandamus and injunction against the Bexar county GOP chairman, Harry Hotchkins, to nullify the pledge resolution. State treasurer Eugene iMike) Nolte started the fracas by calling Dickson "Porter’s dupe.” Jack Porter, official head of the Texas faction favoring Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for president, opposed passage of the resolution at Saturday’s meeting in Fort Worth. ‘ Hants That Post Bad’ “The suit clearly shows that Porter intends to bring in Democrats to elect him national committeeman,” Nolte said. He said a state supreme court ruling in the Wall vs. Curry case of 1948 gave parties latitude to make their own rules. Nolte said Porter was using Eisenhower’s candidacy simply to better himself. “He wants that post bad,” Nolte said. Porter is a candidate for the national job against Henry Zweifel of Fort Worth, the present committeeman. McLean, Sheldon Spar Marrs McLean, San Antonio oilman artd another backer of Sen. Robert A. Taft, said Nolte’s statement would serve only to put the “honest but unthinking Democrat” on notice that he doesn’t belong in Republican precinct conventions. But the county Eisenhower leader Joe Sheldon, said that the Republican party needs Democrats and Independents in their ranks if they expect to win the presidential election. He also charged that “it has been only a few short years since Marrs McLean was a member of the Democratic party and if he will tell the truth he will admit that in the pasj he has likewise voted in a Democratic primary and as he pleased in the general election.” QUICKIES By Ken Reynolds “Say, that's a real bargain— you didn’t tell me swimming lessons come with those skates you got in the News-Tribuna want ads!** Junkman Held After Son Is Shot to Death ton taxi driver, was fatally | jured late Monday when his cab collided with a truck driven by Dewey King, 52.

More Tests On Fluoride In Water Urged WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 AP—A Texas scientist told a House committee today there would be further research on the effect of sodium fluoride on humans before it is used generally in municipal water supplies to prevent tooth decay. “A city should wait until laboratories have time to investigate further,” Dr. Alfred Taylor of the Biochemical Institute of the University of Texas and the Clayton Foundation for Research, Austin, advised a House committee investigating use of chemicals in foods. “It would seem that public interest would best be served by a more cautious attitude before instituting a program which involves adding a chemical to drinking water thst is so toxic it has been used for years as a rat and roach poison. “No matter how low the concentration of such toxic compound in the drinking water may be, the public should have the benefit of the doubt and the procedure should be considered harmful until proved otherwise.” Persons favoring the fluoridation of water as a possible means of curbing tooth decay in children contend the small amount used would not be harmful. Some 20 Texas cities are holding off water fluoridation programs pending tests under way in laboratories, Taylor said. DALLAS, Feb. 19 **~A Dallas unkman was held Tuesday after e confessed shooting his 19-year- old son in an argument about a tricky truck repair job. Leonard Dean, 37, told officers his son. Wesley Joe Dean, was working on a truck transmission when he suddenly “started cussing.” "I said ‘Calm down, son, I’U help you.” Dean said. “He swung at me with the pliers and said he didn’t need any help he could do it himself.” Dean said his son went heme, then came back carrying a shotgun. The father went into his bedroom and got an automatic pistol, he told officers, then his son fired at him and he fired back. The j youth dropped his gun and ran to the doorway of a nearby grocery store, where he died. Police said the boy’s shotgun chamber was clean, and no shells were found on his body. The father was booked on suspicion of murder. Truck-Cab Pile-Up Fatal HOUSTON, F»b. 19 (IP-Sil*« Wayne Sawyer, a 56-year-old Hous- 409 AUSTIN 4/ fi CHOKED «£* GAS?

Reds Trving To Demoralize GIs EIGHTH ARMY HDQS., Korea. F<*b. 19 <U*— American Communists are sending anonymous letters to U.S. troops In Korea telling them their families and loved ones are in trouble, the Eighth Army charged Tuesday. Lt. Col. Richard R. Moorman, troop information and education officer for the Eighth Army, warned soldiers in a mimeographed statement that the anonymous letters were designed to demoralize them. He also told the troops to beware of follow-up Communist “propaganda campaign to ‘bring the boys home’.” “In the last war,” he said, “the Communist propaganda movement to ‘bring the boys back home’ attained such proportions that our military strength was seriously depleted. . . . “For the past 19 months, we have been fighting a fierce and bloody war here in Korea. Now before us lies the possibility of a cease-fire.” With the lull in the fighting, Moorman said, the Reds started “an attempt to demoralize our troops.” “Some of the men have received anonymous letters stating that their families and loved ones are in some form of trouble,” he said “These letters are being signed by so-called interested parties. “Be on the lookout for them. You might be next. Investigate for yourself before becoming a propaganda victim.” Wf’VE JUÍT SICrNtP AN 'ARMKTfCE* .........GO AHEAD WITH MV PLANS, AND U« THE W>T MATERIALS YOU CAN frET/ YOU CAN PEPENO OKI BRUCE CAMPBELL & SON KLHVS CL1MATIZED PAINTS srî an ** '’J****:» S:.. - ' 1 £------------ * Presenting the one fine car that is unquestionably 1952 Standard occossorias, amé trim illustrated er« svbiact te change without itetie».
