EL PASO HERALD-POST, Saturday, July. 23, 1960--Page Tw« Colorado Rancher and Family Round Up Prime Stock for El Paso Kids Rodeo Finest Animals Assured by Experts Stock Raiser Walter Alsbaugh and his family of Alamosa, Colo., were busy today rounding up the finest stock available for the big, annual Herald - Post Kids Rodeo. The rodeo will be held Aug. 24 through Aug. 2S at the El Paso Coliseum. The ride-and-ropin' spectacle is sponsored by The Herald - Post, the Airport Optimist Club and Boys Baseball of El Paso. Entry ·blanks are published in The Herald-Post. Mr. Alsbaugh knows about junior rodeo riding as well as any man on the rodeo circuit. He started in the rodeo game when he was IS by winning the valley roping at Monte Vista's Ski Hi Stampede. He was one of the first members of the Turtles, rodeo's first · organized association. Mrs. Als-bau-gh also worked in rodeo as an arena secretary. Eight years ago Mr. Alsbaugh started producing his own rodeo stock at the big ranch in Colorado. He specializes in children's and teenage rodeos. The Alsbaughs have friree children, Arthur, Alice,- and Virginia. Art is a pick-up man for his dad and also ropes said bulldogs.

State game workers will treat the lake with rotenone, a substance from South America which causes the fish to rise to the surface and become insensible. The fisii will then be gathered by dip nets operated from boats. Washing in fresh r u n n i n g water removes the rotenone from tie gills of the fish, leaving them lunharmed. If the rotenone were left in the gills, the fish would I ie. It is the hope of the Game Department that some of the fis'nj will be used to stock other lakes and ponds.

Arts Council Draws Favor The idea for an arts council as suggested by Albert Green-Field .is gaining widespread interest and attention. Mr. Green-Field first suggested the idea in 1958. "There is nothing new or original about the idea of a cornmu- nitywide a r t s council," Mr. Green-Field said. "Such groups ftave been functioning successfully in cities throughout the country. An arts council is not merely a group of individuals who get together for the purpose of directing and controling art activities. "The member groups of an arts council would include organizations concerned with the related arts such as music, painting, theater, dance and literature as.well as other cultural interests and activities that help enrich the lives of all those- in our community." In El Paso there are more than 20 groups that could comprise an arts council. They include Chamber of Commerce, El Paso Arts Assn., Symphony Assn., Photographic S o c i e t'y, Advertising Club, Garden Club Council, El Paso Museum of Art, Suri Carnival Assn., drama, music and art departments of Texas Western College as well as many women's organizations. Mr. Green-Field is co-ocdinator of art activities and exhibitions for the El Paso Public Library. Servicemen Fail To Find Gas Leak Residents at two locations on Magotfin avenue last night complained to Southern Union Gas Co. about gas leakage. Servicemen investigated complaints from residents at 1217 and 1022 Magoffin avenue without results. Southern Union Service Dispatcher Gordon McKean said that She air in the neighborhood was- filled with a strong "onion-like" smell. Earlier servicemen checked out a call from 'the -manager of the Crawford Theatre w h o complained of a gas leak. No leak was found and servicemen reported that Che obnoxious odor in the theatre was something in the downtown atmosphere that the air-conditioner pulled in. Visitor Dies In Motel Room A 50-year-old Leaksville, N. C. woman died early today in her El Paso mote! room, -her husband told police. . Thomas Martin said his wife Carolyn, was in the best of spirits yesterday and last night. However, when he came out of the shower early today she was face down on the bed, unable to talk and breathing heavily. Mrs. ' Martin was pronounced dead on arrival at Thomason G e n e r a l Hospital. Coroner Charles Windberg Jr. ordered an autopsy. lin. President Eisenhower underscored the denials by resuming an apparently relaxed vacation routine. Press Secretary James C. Hagerty said the President's only advance plans for today were to play «olf. Hagerty stuck by 'his flat denial of Washington dispatches which said the President and top administration officials had received intelligence warnings that a Communist military move against Berlin might be expected within the next 30 days. He had told a news conference yesterday neither the- White House, State Department nor Central Intelligence Agency had any .such information. "There must be some misunderstanding," lie added. Texan Freed In Killing Of Baby Sitter United Press International SAN AUGUSTINE, Texas, July 23.--A' prominent San Augustine insurance broker was given a five-year suspended sentence yesterday for murdering his Negro babysitter with his automobile last New Year'.; Eve. The 'jury deliberated an hour and 33. minute:; before finding Hugh'Sparks, 3S, guilty of running over babysitter, Bobbie Jean Ligon, 15, on a country road near San Augustine. The .'jury fou:,id him innocent on a charge of .murder with malice- a'forethoughi:, but found him guilty on a second count of murder by automobile. Tne Negro girl had sat with Sparks' children while they attended a New Year's Eve party. Sharks was to have driven her home, but her body was found the next day. A witness testified Sparks had been drinking. Sparks showed no emotion when he heard the verdict. An estimated 400 persons were ja-mmed into a courtroom built to hold about half that many.

By ANN CARROLL DEAR READERS: Everyone I see mentions the Democratic Convention and this is the usual refrain: "I saw as much of it as I -could stand on television." It was the milling of the crowd and the vacant expressions and the lack of audience interest® which irritated and angered the El Paso watchers. I heard : a priceless thing about a man who is a Democrat and who rebelled at the milling group of delegates. His wife said he had watched and fidgeted and muttered. Finally, he growled, "I'll bet I could quiet 'em. I'd j u m p to the front of the podium and yell, 'SHUT UP, you So and So's!" He turned o f f ' t h e set and went to bed. It made many a viewer feel depressed and -frustrated and fit subject for a tranquilizer. If the Republicans are smart they will be as good as gold and still as mice in Chicc.go. To say the acoustics were 'bad in Los Angeles does not excuse the Democratic delegates. If they were deeply concerned, they would have risen in frustrated wrath at the beginning and yelled, "We can't hear you!" Is that audience typical of all the Americans who sit night after night before a television set and watch Westerns and detective stories in a trance? If so, we are in a bad way. Another refrain I hear is, "How could Lyndon Johnson completely reverse himself? There seems to be a limit to which the public will go in shrugging off a change of stand with "That's politics." If people get in the habit of crediting every move and declaration of a man in politics, in which they had believed strongly, with a shrug and an acceptance of a reversal of their own sincere beliefs, the people elected wil'. get worse and worse and voters won't believe in anybody. It will be dog eat dog, sure enough. I think most people feel worried and sad about the things happening in this country .and everyhewere on the map,-And there is one question I'd like to 'ask, just one question from one dumb voter: "Do the Congolese know where those supplies flown in 'by our planes and unloaded by U.

Nixon in Houston last June 18 -'and the views purportedly given by Walsh as reflecting those of Nixon.

He said "I want to know what part Mr. Walsh is playing., .in preparation of this platform."
