READY FOR CORNERSTONE — Although it will be some time before the new Comanche First Baptist Church will be completed, it is far enough along for laying of the cornerstone at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Donated by Rav. 5. J. Isharn, a retired Baptist minister, the cornerstone will have several items placed in a copper box. Anticipated cost of the structure is $290,000.

The request from Miss Lane to increase Brown County's con- All professional personnel In Brownwood Public Schools will continue to receive the same, salary above state scale that they are currently receiving. The action was approved by Brownwood school trustese meeting in regular session Monday night after lengthy discussion on the matter. In the case of classroom teachers, this amounts to $200 above year $500 a letter written a few weeks ago from Judge William 0. Breedlove asking what progress had been made in securing a home demonstration agent for the county. Discussion of the proposed change will come In August when Brown County commissioners plan the 1970 budget. According to Miss Lane, the few qualified agents have not been willing to accept the job in Brown County and she feels that a more attractive offer mi^ht help in securing an HD agent for the county. The extension service pays a percentage of the salary and travel expense of the HD agents. First National Bank and Southwest State Bank were the only institutions to bid. Both proposed to pay the same rates of interest on deposits but First National Bank said it would charge no interest on Krischk© Pen'in upward of that amount for other ( <«»»•« ••»>*/ • **• • n i 1 professional personnel including ; Nnmprj to Roord administrators.

About a month is necessary be tween the open house and admission of patients to permit a thorough training period for me ical and other personnel. "WE WANT ALL our people to be completely familiar with the hospital and its equipment before we begin accepting patients," Administrator Maurice Shaw told board members. Formal dedication ceremonies are planned at the hospital's main entrance Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. "We want to keep the dedication as short as possible because of the heat and because people want a chance to see their new hospital," board president W. G. Streckert said. The dedication is expected to last only about 25 to 30 minutps. Dr. Guy D. Newman will make the dedication address and Wendell Mayes will be master of ceremonies. The Rev. D. C. McNeal. pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church, will give the invocation. MEMBERS OF the Women's Auxiliary to - the Brownwood Community Hospital will be on hand to assist with tours. Open house will continue until 6 p.m, Sunday, Board members voted to accept the building from the contractor after going over a list of some 20 minor items which still remain to be, done. Building committee chairman R. H. Ross, who recommended to the board that the building be officially accepted, said some of the uncompleted items lack equipment which are currently on back order, and one or two items have not been delivered because of strikes affecting the supplier. "We have a good building here and I'm proud of it," Ross told ! board members with his acccp- i tance recommendation. BOARD PRESIDENT Streckert and Adminstrator Shaw praised Ross and members of 1 the building committee for their efforts in seeing that the structure was properly completed, and had similar praise for Architect George Sowden.

THREE— Approved a general agreement with Harvey Smith, San Antonio architect, to prepare a district-wide master plan and establishment of actual phases of work to be done. It was also agreed Smith would be the architect on the first phase. After completion of the first with a Meetings, Tours Tax rate for Brownwood Independent School District was again set at $1.65 per $100 valuation at Monday's school board meeting. Trustees approved the same ; tax rate after being presented a tentative budget in the amount of $1,941,866 by Supt. Guy T. i Smith. | The annual budget hearing as j required by law will be held at the Aug. 11 meeting of the school board. At that time the final budget will be presented based on the firm tax rate. The current budget is $1,825,035. Smith pointed out the largest single increase in the new budget in $25.000 more for teachers' salaries. This represents the amount the local district must provide as a result of the teachers' pay raise voted by the last legislature. Smith said financing of the pay raise and salary increases for other personnel as well as other services will be possible without a tax rate increase because of a sizeable increase in valuations. Current valuations are $43.056 870 as compared with 1968 valuations of $40,421,460. Of the $1.65 tax, $1.35 will go for local maintenance and 30 cents is for debt service. : among the million peftbfls fe*- pected at this moonport to see the launching. In the lunar module, which is nested beneath the command and service modules, is u dlsfi i the size of a half dollar in! scribed with messages of con* gratulations and goodwill from 7.1 nations. The microdisc will : be implanted in the powdery i moon soil. Russia, which sent a mystery satellite to the moon—with arrival timed nearly to coincide with America's historic launch —delivered no message Some experts saw in their unmanned vehicle an attempt to pluck soil samples from the moon and return them before Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins can deliver thpirs eight days after liftoff. Asked if he would be disappointed if the Russians first snared lunar dirt. Aldrin said: "I'm sure all of us would. We'd like to return with everything we set out to do on this flight.'' What they set out to do was proposed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961 "I believe that ! this nation should commit itself - to achieving the goal before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth." Their precise flight plan calls for going into moon orbit at 1:25 p.m EDT Saturday, undocking the lunar lander from the mother ship 24 hours later, and touching down on the moon at 4-19 p.m. Sunday. But they'll have to wait before making their self-televised imprint on the moon. First they must, check the systems to propel them back up to the orbiting mother ship with Collins aboard, then try to sleep for four hours. Man's first step on the moon iis set for 2 17 a.m. next Monday. Their only hope of rescue is Collins, coming overhead every two hours in the immutable laws of space travel. He has the ability, at a tremendous cost in valuable fuel, of coming down within 9 miles of the surface. "We would be prepared to go down to the absolute limit," said Collins. 'It would be a decision that would be up to mission control." Collins would be of help only if the lunar vehicle could not leave its self-contained launch pad and go that high to meet (See APOLLO on Page 2) cide whether the same different firm. to continue or vocated this too be retained.

Sunday after- By RAUL BARNICA TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — A new undeclared war raged in Central America today between Honduras and El £al- vador, with each accusing the other of aggression. The Organization of American States ordered a peace team down from Washington. Honduran authorities charged that Salvadorean ground forces invaded Honduras Monday at two points, and that Salvado- rean planes made widespread attacks. Unconfirmed reports said seven cities were bombed, A dispatch from Guatemala, which borders both countries said Salvadorean officials reported some 1,000 Honduran 1 troops had crossed the border into El Salvador. Sources in Tegucigalpa said the Honduran air j force's World War U Corsairs ] also crossed the frontier and i ran into heavy antiaircraft fire. President Fidel Sanchez Hernandez of El Salvador held a three-hour emergency meeting i with his cabinet, then an- i nounced he had ordered his ; army "to exercise the right of •legitimate defense." A government statement, broadcast from San Salvador, j said the Salvadorean forces had • been ordered into action after ; "continuous attacks by Honduran troops on the Salvadorean frontier, violation of air space and the knowledge that Hondu- ran troops and sir force personnel had mobilized in Santa Rosa de Lima for a large-scale attack." Two Honduran towns reportedly suffered a "high" number of casualties from the Salvado- rean air attacks. They were Ocotepeque, a town of about 5.000 and Santa de Copan, with 9,500 residents. The Honduran government said Salvadorean ground troops invaded the country at Amatillo from the south and Poy from the west. The government said Salvadorean planes dropped bombs on Honfuran army and air force installations near the international airport in Tegucigalpa.
