The plans for the technical- vocational buildings now are virtually complete, but have not been given final approval [ by the board of regents. Some work has been done on the academic building plans, but much of that WC.TK remains Construction of buildings in Baytown continued at a rapid pace during February. Thirty-four city permits were issued last month for buildings with estimated values totaling S528.970. The February cost figure plus 5450,512 for January make a total of nearly ?1 million of buildings during the first two months of 1366. The comparable two-month total for 1365 is 5613,469. Last year permits for buildings with estimated values totaling 5301,139 were issued during February. As during January, residential buidings accounted for most of the total construction authorized last month.

" commission establishing the Houston commercial zone authorizes unrestricted local trucking services between 29 cities in this area, according to Gail Whitcomb, president of the Houston Chamber of Commerce. Whitcomb said the decision grants substantially the zone asked by the Houston chamber in a brief filed Jan. 21. Effect of the commission's Feb. 24 decision is to take away commission regulation of most for-hire trucking of goods and property throughout the defined zone, Whitcomb said. He pointed out that business firms in any city within the zone will have the same services of local truckers, on the same unregulated basis, as business firms in the Houston city Umits. But for-hire trucking by specialized motor carriers such as household goods movers and oilfield hauler lines is not exempted, Whitcomb added. The newly defined commercial zone extends from Baytown on the east to Humble on the north, Jersey Village and Missouri City on the west and League City and Seabrook on the south, including La Porte.

NEED A REPAIR LOAN? Gander head Coach Pete Sultis and his Robert E. Le e football team, the latest being the naming of Sultis as South football coach for the coming high school all star game to be played in Houston, August 4. During the same weekend it was announced that 1965 Gander quarterback Richard Oliver was selected to the Big 33 team, a Texas all star team that annually plays the best from Pennsylvania, as an end. This is Sultis' first time to receive this honor, although he was chairman of the selection committee in 1962, and Oliver is the first in Gander history to be named to the Big 33 squad. Sultis, who came to Robert E. Lee in 1947, upon graduation Rjce University, and took jest competitor in the balloting. "It's one of the greatest honors a coach can receive," Sultis said. "I'll admit that I wanted it pretty bad and am sincerely happy that I won." Sultis will be matching his football knowledge with that of north coach Don Orr of Denver City, in an attempt to put the south in a winning position for the first time since 1953 when Mississippi Coach Johnny Vaught beat the north, 13-6. Pete has posted a 59-27-4 record as Gander headman. The north now stands with an 18-9-3 record in the series. Since the 43-year old Sultis has handled the coaching reigns for the Ganders he has sent six of 22 Ganders wjii? have parti- tor. ciated in the elite game. In 1957 Bill Laughlin represented the Ganders, i n 1958 it was Steve McWilliams, Vernon Olney in 19CO, Vemon McManus in 1961. Wayne Bell in 1962 and Mike Farrell in 1964. It is quite likely that Gander Ail-American tackle and middle guard Charlie Hendricks will end up with Sultis on the south team, along with assistant coaches Kevin Lounsberry and Ron Kramer. Lounsberry, in fact, played in the 1952 game. Sultis is the second 12-4A coach in as many years to try his hand at winning the big game, following Pasaden's Bob Barfield who lost th e 1965 encounter.
