2^-DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Friday/April 9, 1971 AT UNION STOCK YARDS Heavy Cattle Runs Reported SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Cattle from parched South Texas ranches are streaming to market here at a pace reminiscent of the drought of 1956. A spokesman at the San Antonio Union Stock Yards said it has handled 92,300 cattle since January. This is the largest total for any similar period here since 1956, when 97,000 were counted during the same months, reported Phil McFall, livestock market reporter for the Agriculture Department. "So far this year we're running 43 per cent over last year," McFall said. He added that the heavy cattle run should not be blamed entirely on the drought, however, because price levels are among the highest since 1951. Cattle trucker Bill Ploetz of San Antonio said the drought has left many cattle thin and weak and that "a lot of cattle are on the market now that really shouldn't come until late this summer." He said numerous cattlemen are selling now because there is little grass to be found. Pearsall trucker George Thompson said he has been filling his trucks withhay-for their return trips to Sotfth Texas. Two Laughlin Employes Get Service Awards Emilia L. Lomas and Randall P.

"I feel I'm as capable as a man, in fact more qualified than some," said one of the four attractive women who graduated Thursday from a four-week training course from sky marshals. All but one of the girls said they had no fear of facing air pirates. The fourth said: "I think anyone would be apprehensive. You'd be foolish if you didn't. But I feel confident I can do the job." The young women, all single 'and in their 20s, insisted on anonymity, and so did the Treasury Department, which trained them for the Federal Aviation Administration. Including one who has never flown before, they said there was little hesitation to try for the jobs when they learned of them through Civil Service examinations. "I don't think we had any doubts," said a dark-haired one. "We knew the training we would receive would make us well prepared to handle the situation." , As are all sky marshals, the girls are trained in use of firearms, judo and karate and how to handle a hijacker aboard a commercial flight. "If you're familiar with a gun, I think that helps," one, a former secretary, advised women who might want to apply. "You have to be physical enough to ride horses, play tennis, or chase your brother around the block," said another, a former technical worker for the government. "Just be sincere," another said. "Be sincere that you want to do the job, and not just for women's liberation or anything like that." The four joined 80 men at the graduation ceremonies, the 16th sky marshal class trained at Fort Belvoir, Va. They will join a force of about 1,000 sky marshals, technically customs security officers, on Monday. Like their male counterparts, the women will be paid a start' ing annual salary of $5,853 to $8,098, depending on qualifications. Eugene T. Rossides, assistant secretary for enforcement, said addition of the women to the sky marshal force will make it doubly hard for the potential hijacker. "Before today," he said, "the hijacker was only looking around at the male passengers for a sky marshal. Now, he's not so sure." * COLOR PROGRAM 7 :00 :1S :30 :45 KENS-TV , 5-CBS it II The New Andy Griffith Show* KSAT-TV . 2-ABC Nanny & Professor* i Partridge Family* WOAI-TV KLRN-TV 4-NBC^ ' CH 6 tl it The Name of ihe Game-fc Capital Eye* tt .
