RE A Express Acts To Curb Walkout NEW YORK (AP) - RE A Express announced today that it had obtained a federal court restrainingorder calling for an end to the four-day-old strike against the company by the Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerks. A company spokesman said the court action in the contract rules dispute followed "fruitless day-long settlement attempts" under the auspices of the National Mediation Board in Washington. The order was signed-shertly before midnight Thursday by U.S. Dist. Court Judge Newell Edenfield in Atlanta, the spokesman said. The strike began April 19 in New York and spread through the system which operates 3,375 offices and customer"service centers in all 50 states. At issue was REA's institution of 17 new highway runs in the Northeast. The spokesman said he "hoped operations would return to normal by early next week." "REA filed its complaint in Atlanta asking that the strike issue be consolidated with an earlier case there in which the court had enjoined the union from conducting similar illegal stoppages," some months ago, the spokesman said. Four DRHS French Students Rank High Recently released competition results of the seventh annual French" Symposium, held in San Antonio in March, named four Del Rio High School students among the top 50 (or top 10 per cent) contestants in three different categories.

McDuff said that he had recommended on several occasions that the size of the committee be reduced to five members so more effective meetings could be had without the quorum problem. However, he said his suggestions fell on deaf ears and as a result the commission has done absolutely nothing that it set out to do. The airport commission was created recently by the county court, who appointed themselves and several local area businessmen and merchants, to serve on the board. Their goal was to find a buyer for the present 100 acre airport situated inside the Eagle- Pass city limits and then to locate a new site outside the city for a new airport facility. One commissioner said today that he is the only member of the court to have attended a commission meeting and that there has never been more than three persons present at a meeting. He said that McDuff has requested County Judge Ramon Saucedo Jr. to reduce the size of the committee on several occasions but the judge has replied, "give me another 30 days" on each occasion. McDuff apparently became angry with the 'stall' and resigned, according to the commissioner. An Eagle Pass city councilman also had some words on the issue this morning saying that the county is getting nowhere fast with the airport project. "It appears that the county is looking to 4nake a profit on the sale of the old airport site," he" said. "They are asking a premium price for that land and have been offered a donation of the new site outside the city." eighth place. Miss Abbett also placed sixth in the first year of grammar competition. Senior Blanca Berain, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rolando Berain of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, won tenth place in second year vocabulary competition, and seventeenth place in listening comprehension. Taking 28th place in second year vocabulary competition was senior Guillermina Bosquez, daughter of Pedro- Bosquez. In listening comprehension, Miss Bosquez placed 12th. Alicia Andrade, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Reynaldo Andrade, placed 46th in second year vocabulary competition and 27th in listening comprehension. Dee Moynihan of the French Symposium's Advisory Council said, "Since we had more than 1,300 c on test ants, approximately 500 per category, this is indeed an accomplishment, and reflects the quality of instruction and the dedication of your teachers." The French Symposium is an annual series of contests covering various areas of French study, including listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, civilization, poetry, prose, prepared and extemporaneous speaking, dramatic reading, music, art, costumes and a bicycle "tour de France." Mrs. Polly Chandler and Miss Otila Gonzalez accompanied the students to San Antonio for the symposium, made up of approximately 1,300 students from 45 schools across the state. r Del Rio I Back When... :*: : : : : : :W:W::$:::%^$£^ FROM THE FILES OF THE DEL RIO NEWS-HERALD FIVE YEARS AGO April 23, 1966 Rain, hail, high winds and flooding plagued Del Rio, bringing the city's moisture to 3.67 inches. **#* TEN YEARS AGO April 23, 1961 Jimmy Sellers, Jeraid Weatherman, Gerald Hall and Jimmy Allen, the Del Rio Wildcat mile relay team, set a new Region IV record.
