BUGS BUNNY By Ralph frfetnuioU Japan Best Port Customer, Study Of 1967 Shows HOUSTON (Sp) — Japan was the Port of Houston's leading trading partner in 1967 with a total trade between that country and the Port of $189,437,880. Of this $86,652,245 was imports from Japan and $102,785,635 was exports. India was the second most important trading partner with a lolal trade of $120,246,134, but nearly all of this was due to the $UU,3oU,345 worth of exports, notably wheat, shipped to thai country. * The United Kingdom again figured prominently in the Port ol Houston's trade picture with $117,071,215 worth of trade closely followed by The Netherlands with $112,136,098, west Germany with $111,083,082 and Belgium with $105,585,605. In the case of West Germany anc Belgium imports exceeded exports, due to the large amounts of steel shipped from Antwerp and sleel and automobiles shipped from Wes German ports. Brazil was another heavy trading partner with a trade of $U7,UOO,4«2. Here, again, much of the trade was due to heavy shipments of wheat during 1967, although imports from Brazil amounted to about one third of the total trade, chiefly due to heavy coffee imports. Rounding out Houston's top ten trading countries were Italy with a trade of $50,737,525, about three lilihs of it export traffic; France, with $34,447,910, of which some $16,007,784 was in imports, and Venezuela, with a $48,487,279 trade of which about four fifths was in exports— Sun Classified i.

The building fund for the school this week became $244 richer because of this. A check for S244 was presented Thursday to Mrs. George Adams, director of the Opportunity School, by Eddie Huron, representing the Baysliore Hod, Heel and Gun Club. Huron and Lou Kessler headed the project for collecting the hides this past hunting season. During the past six of seven years lhe Bayshore Rod, Reel and Gun Club lias raised "way over a thousand dollars" for the Opportunity School, Mrs. Adams pointed out. "We want to thank all the sportsmen who helped us," Huron said, "and a special thanks to the Jim Nelson Sporting Goods Store and Perkins Sausage Co. for serving as collecting stations for us." Alter hides were brought to- iliese two locations, the Bayshore Rod, Reel and Gun Club members "salted down" the hides until tiiese were taken mio Houston. Mrs. Adams said the new building for the Opportunity School is last becoming a reality at its. location on Baker Road between Garth Road and Decker Drive. The groundbreaking was held last fall. The construction is expected to be completed by the nine school starts in September. The building will greatly relieve the present crowded conditions at the school now located at 1201 Parkway.

Lindon Williams of Galena Park was appointed to serve as vice chairman of the House Military and Veterans Affairs Committee by the Speaker of lhe House. This commiltee has jurisdiction over all matters relating to the stale volunteer guard, stale defense guard, Hangers, adjulanl general's department and ali other matters pertaining lo military, branches and veterans. Hep. Williams also was named to serve on tour other committees. These are banks and banking; parks and wildlife; public health; and commerce and manufacturers. House Speaker Mutscher said Hep. Williams' practical business and economics background plus his long interest in progressive stale government make him one of the most qualified to serve on these five major committees. A new approach to vocational and technical education is one of several key recommendations recently adopted by the State SeaaieCommillee on Vocational - Technical Kducalion. Sen. Chel Brooks, of Pasadena, chairman of the committee, says his group is recommending that vocational technical education be fully integrated into the public schools irom ninth grade through highest levels of collegiate training. Increasing isolation ol students from the "world ol wurk," he says, has deprivec students of knowledge of careers available to them. Only a small percentage of the population, he says, has receivec specialized vocational training in the public schools, or college level training beyond higl school. And under the preseni system, even large numbers o college graduates lack adequate job preparation and must begin Uieir careers with extensive "or Hie job" training. To fill a growing demand for ixjcupationally - trained people ihe committee forsces a need for updating and expanding existing vocational programs to meet the requirements of an increasingl> technical society. Special care musl be taken Brooks says, lo remove th stigmatic idea that vocaliona education is a "dumpini ground" for students who lacl academic ability. The committee recommend: that pre - vocational and pre technical courses be developet lor lower grades. 11 also suggest continuing education to upgrad worker skills, both academic an manual. The committee's olher recom meiidations include retaining ih preseni administrative organ zation of the State Board ( Vocational Education, crealio ol an advisory council o vocational - technical education continuation ol James Connall Technical Instilute at Waco mainlenance allowances for vo cational teacher units in eac district, additional programs to ounselor training, co - operative econdary junior college pro,rams, licensing and regulation il private trade schools, and ontinuation ot the Senate com- nitteu. 3.
