Tha original route would leave Highway 0 near Hitchcock, in Galveston County, cross Chocolate Bayou just south of the Monsanto site, and follow the Hoskins road to join cgation to Austin Jan. 30 for a Texas Highway Commission hearing on the route of the proposed cast-west road from Brazosport to Gaivcston County. Both Councils favor a route originally proposed by the Texas Highway Department, which for much of the distance would follow the old Hoskins Mound Road. Both Councils oppose the northern route now endorsed by the Highway Department, Commissioners Court, Lake Jackson Council and Angleton Chamber of Commerce. Farm Road 523. Clute has asked that ^his terminus be extended now or later to intersect Highway 288 in Clute. Freeport has agreed to this. The northern route would cross Chocolate Bayou at the same point, but would follow course several miles to the north, crossing Farm Road 523 and Highway 288, and joining the Brazosport Loop Road that veers north of Lake Jackson. Lanes will give 100 per cent ot the bowling fees received between midnight Friday and midnight Sunday to the La Escuelita fund. Cash prizes will be awarded the best adult bowlers and trophies will be presented to each boy and girl In each of the three age groups, bantams, juniors and seniors with the most pins over average. Entry fee for a will be $2 per person with ;,i.35 being donated to the La Escuelita fund and B5 cents going in the cash prize kitty to be returned 100 per cent to the bowlers. Amount of cash prizes and how they will be awarded will be determined by the number of entries, however an example would be "out of 50 people, there would be five cash prizes." Each entry will bowl throe games across six lanes and can place in the money only once with the same partner. The bowler's highest current league average of 18 games or more in any one league will be used. Handicap for men will be 68 and two-thirds from 200 and for women 70 per cent from 200. Any doubles combination may play, however not more than three couples will be allowed to a pair of lanes. Bowling will be allowed anytime lanes ars available. The Junior singles will be conducted at t h e same time, midnight Friday to midnight Sunday, but bowlers must bowl in age group classifications. Bantams, six to nine years of age; juniors, 10 to 13, and seniors, 14 to 17 years of age. Averages must be based on 12 games in the 1960-61 season.

Though Uiey promised to take the matter unde? consideration, the Court held cut little hope for a change in tne amount budgeted for constanlcs* salaries or for any other department. F. A. Roden of Alvin, constaote of Precinct Three, was present to represent the county's constables. "It is pure folly to assume that these services lie rendered for only $40 a month," Roden told the Court.

"I would like to beg of this Court that you give us enough money to cov?r our expenses." He said that his expenses lor 1960 were more than $700, but that he was paid only $480 during that period. County Judge Alton Arnold said that at the time of the annual budget hearing in August, constables had requested a higner salary and were refused.
