George C. Bigley, was killed in combat in Viet Nam with a green beret Special Forces unit. Now his son, Stephen, 17, wants to join the green berets there. But not for vengeance, Stephen says. "I don't feel mad in any way," the youth said. "I just want to do my part. I don't want anyone to think I'm going for my dad, I'm going over for everybody." Bigley, who won his mother's reluctant permission to enlist, has been accepted for airborne training. His prime ambition, he said Wednesday, is to earn the right to wear the green beret, the symbol of the Army Special Forces unit to which his father belonged. Stephen was living with his mother in a house trailer at Fort Campbell, Ky., when word came that his father had been killed Jan. 3, 1965, in a Viet Cong attack. The family returned to Chicago and Stephen entered a local high school. "I didn't like it." he said. "I had too much on my mind because of dad." So he dropped out of school and enlisted. His father, a veteran of Army service in many parts of the world, served in the Italian campaign in World War TJ. He was a member of Darby's Rangers, a paratrooper and an expert marksman. He held three Purple Hearts and three Bronze Stars.

Baytown Chamber Will Plan For The Future Members of the Baytown Chamber of Commerce Friday will contribute ideas on future projects at the annual "meeting of the minds" luncheon at Holiday Inn. Each person is asked to select six projects he would like to see the chamber concentrate en during the next year. If time permits, these projects 'vill be discussed Friday. If not these projects wil be the basis for a program later In March. President Perry Britton said. Britton said Friday's meeting 'will be one of the most Important of the year" and urged all members to attend and help select projects for 1966. Everett M. Dirksen told a reporter he had been advised the House conferees would stand firm against the two amend ments. One would provide Social Security coverage for 1.8 million persons over 70 not covered now. The other would confine reinstatement of the 10 per cen excise tax on phone calls to long distance calls while keeping i at "3 per cent for local residen Sial calls. Major provisions in the bil are reimposition of taxes on phone calls and car sales tha were cut -Tan. 1, a graduated withholding system for coliee lion of personal income taxes and a speedup in payment corporation taxes. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D- Minn., predicted the Senate conferees would abandon the two amendments "before they get to the rotunda." The Senate conferees pass through the rotunda in the center of the Capitol on the way to meet the House group. Sen. Albert Gore, D-Tenn.. charged that the President had 'picayune bill" not meet the govern- sent up a jeared to nent's needs in the war crisis. As the bill cleared the Senate Wednesday by a 79-9 vote, it *'ould provide a net of less than S5 billion. The Social Security amend- nent by Sen. Winston L. Prou:y, R-Vt., adopted 45 to 40 Tuesday, would cost an estimated 750 million. And the proposal by Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., to knock out of the bill the increase in the excise on local residential telephone service would wipe ou' S315 million of the bill's reve nue. The Senate became so con- used Wednesday in voting on Hartke's proposal that it adopted the amendments by a vote of .6 to 42 in a form which actually- repealed the entire excise levy on residential service. But Hartke said this was a mistake. He finally got consent o change it to carry out hip jriginal intention of leaving the residential phone tax at 3 per cent. The President's supporters >eat back 47 to 37 a proposal of Sen. Abraham A. Ribicoff, D- Conn., to provide for deductions of up to 51325 for annual college education expenses. It would lave cost about SI billion a year starting in 1963. Mayor Urges Decision— Baytown Council Has 3 Cable TV Proposals Mayor Seaborn Cravey said'diary of Power Generation Co., Thursday that he hopes the city council will consider granting a community antenna television franchise for Baytown during its regular meeting Thursday night, j The council received two proposals for the franchise during its Feb. 24 meeting. City Manager Fritz Lanharn has received a third proposal, which the council may or may not consider at its Thursday night meeting. Consideration of awarding the franchise was delayed by the council to permit one of the interested ,~-ms to explain its proposal. An explanation was received on Feb. 24 from Frank Baltazar of Houston, operations director for Southwest Teleview. Inc.. one of the interested firms. Baltazar said Southwest Tele- view is a wholly owned subsi- Inc. of Houston. W. O. Myatt of Houston is president of Southwest Tele- view, a corporation set up to obtain the Baytown franchise, according to Baltazar . Baltazar said his firm has no direct connection with any Baytown persons. A proposal also was received by a Baytown firm, the Baytown Community Antenna Co. Rufus Honeycutt and Donald L. Brunson, D.D.S., are listed as sole owners. Dr. Brunson presented his firm's proposal to the council during the Feb. 24 meeting. He said an explanation of the proposal would be given by Honey- curt, who was unable to attenc the meeting because of the death of his brother-in-law. Honeycutt said he will explai n his firm's proposal during the Thursday night meeting. The third proposal was handed to City Manager Lanham on Wednesday. He said he received it from City Attorney George Chandler. There has been considerable (See CABLE TV, Page 13) Our World Today Mayor Gefs Protest— Housing Authority Probe Is Requested A group of Archer Courts and Oak Addition residents Wednesday afternoon called for an investigation of the way the Baytown Housing Authority is being administered at a city hall meeting with Mayor Seaborn Cravey and City Manager Fritz Lanham. A group of about 25 Negroes, led by the Rev. R. L. Finney and Woodrow Lewis, gathered in Archer Courts and came to city hall by car. They met in front of a house formerly occupied by Mrs. Carrie Williams, who with her family was evicted from the federal housing unit Monday. (See picture, Page 13) Rev. Finney, spokesman for the group, said the people in Archer Courts were dissatisfied with some of the policies being Baytown Housing Authority by the executive director, Davis Taylor. "We are here," he said, "to find out how we can get an investigation of this and to obtain some relief. We don't think the federal government's policies are being carried out as they should be by the housing authority executive director. "We want to say that Mrs. Williams' eviction is incidental to the overall problem the people of Archer Courts hav e been contending with for some time." Rev. Finney said employes of the Baytown Housing Authority had been entering homes in Archer courts (to which they have keys) without "proper notification* and that utilities had been, cut off in some instances. He said also that some of the carried out in the name of the' (See HOUSING, Page 13) County Pollution Chief Guest Of City.

Johnson administration lead- irs are watching Peking closely or signs of new moves. Offi- :ials say they believe the pol- cy review has been under way there for two or three •months and must be about com- ileted. They are not sure when the esuJLs will begin to show up T whether the ultimate effect HARRIS COUNTY FEDERAL Sariac* nod L*M Assets Over S27.000.000.00 •will be to harden or soften the Red Chinese atutuede toward other countries. But they are concerned about the possibility that Red China will become even more belligerent in an effort to compensate for setbacks suffered during the past year. Among these reverses, as evaluated by Washington, are the recent overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah i n Ghana, attacks on Peking by Fidel Castro of Cuba, the Army drive beginning last fall against the powerful pro- Chinese Communist hold in Indonesia and the massive buildup of U.S. military power in Southeast Asia. Within the Communist bloc itself, the conflict between Moscow and Peking has grown constantly more bitter, particularly because of strains imposed by their differences over the war to Viet Nam. county records on Baytown sewer treatment installations were usually about the same except for the plant in Woodlawn.

Accord Near On Tri-City Beach Bid By BEE Baytowa city ottsclals and Tri- C5ty Beach area residents seemed to agree Wednesday that their separate plans for annexation and incorporation do cot conflict greatly. Six representatives of the Tri- City Beach Civic Association met Wednesday night with the city council's annexation committee to discuss the two group's plans and aims. One or more representatives of the Tri - City Beach group will attend Thursday night's council meeting in an effort to reach final agreement on a plan hat received tentative approval Wednesday night. If the council concurs with its annexation committee, the fol- owing action may be 'taken: • The council will give the Tri - City Beach group permission to incorporate an area that now is within Baytown's extra- erritorial control. • The new municipality, to be known as "Beach City," wfll give Baytown permission to annex along the Tri - City Beach itoad, adjacent to Beach City's joundary. Baytown's annexation along the Tri - City Beach Road to ncircle the U.S. Steel Corp. jlock of land would continue while Beach City was being or- ;anized- Mayor Seaborn Cravey, who attended the Wednesday night meeting as an ex-officio mem- ier of the annexation commit- ee, reviewed the council's intentions for the Tri - City Beach area residents. "Your intention is, and has been all along, to annex along public road rights-of-way and to join the strips, encircling the U.S. Steel tract," the mayor said. "Our reason for wanting to do this is that we hired a group of high - priced engineers to make a study, and they predict that Baytown is likely to grow," he explained. He referred to a comprehensive plan for Baytown, in which a population of 115,000 is forecast by 19Sft The city's current population is approximated 40,- jOOO. | Mayor Cravey pointed out that i the only directions in which Bay- itown can grow are to the north 'and east.
