Dr. James B. Conant, on the foreign language question- He said that Dr. Conant had written that is it "absolutely foolish" to teach foreign languages only in the higher grades. ] Wahrmund said the foreign language studies must start ear-j ly in school and continue into high school and that "a lot is going on in this field that we're! not taking advantage of." Mrs. Opryshek said she favored foreign languages in the elementary grades. A question answered by the three candidates was: "Do you feel the Baytown Sun has given unbiased coverage on school board meetings." Shirey demurred, pointing to Most questions in the rally jwere directed to Shirey who at times seemed to be "on the spot" in his hometown gathering, Shirey was asked why he opposed the separation of Lee College and the public school district. "I felt Lee College had grown tremendously over the years," he replied ."It was an orderly growth. My viewpoint differed from the electorate. I thought we were getting a service and growing in an orderly fashion." Why had he voted against hiring C. W. Suesse as th e school district auditor, Shirey was asked. "This is a matter of opinion on who vou believe could do thej tending Supt. George H. Gentry's contract past compulsory retirement age? ties," Shirey replied.

"True, I thought that Mr. pryshek was a fine person, extremely efficient," Shirey said. "We didn't agree past a certain point. I did not say publicly I'd support anyone's decisions but rny own."

I have nothing against the individuals, and I think the record will so reflect." Do you think the district is getting the best legal service for the money? Shirey replied. "Obviously I do. I voted to retain them." Mrs. Opryshek expressed an opinion that school district legal advice "is lacking." She said, "They do not keep basic things they should know about." She added that not being an attorney herself, she did not know if the district xvas actually getting the best legal advice for the money involved. On integration, Shirey responded that the district's free transfer policy was working out well. "We have not discriminated against th e Negro." Shirey added he saw no reason to abandon neighborhood schools or not toimprove McNair or Carver schools if the need is there. Mrs. Opryshek was asked specifically if the Lee Brigadiers should be integrated. She said that the Robert E. Lee Band been successfully integrated and there was no reason for the Negroes or whites to be discriminated against. The three candidates all agreed on the importance of special education.

U.S. officials said no pictures ould be permitted of the bomb, s parachute or recovery opera- ons because of the highly secret nature of the weapon. The bomb was one of four aboard the B52 when it collided with a jet tanker from which it was refueling over the southern Spanish Coast last Jan. 17. Seven of the 11 men aboard the two planes were killed; four survivors, were pulled from the sea. Three of the bombs were recovered on shore. One of the Spanish fishermen who rescued the survivors reported he saw "a funny gray parachute with half a man hanging from it" fall into the sea.

Randell, 15, is the son af W. E. Dodd and the late Mrs. Wy- nelie Shipley Dodd, a registered nurse. He is the nephew of Dr. Tilman E. Dodd of Austin and the late Dr. Durwood L. Dodd of Aspermont. The youth suffered multiple fractures and lacerations on his right leg and abrasions on his head. Visitation is limited, his father said. "He is doing pretty good under conditions and he fe responding to treatment," Dodd said. Windshield Cracked TAVLO JIMEX, 1714 W.

Humble officials expressed satisfaction with progress of work now under way. H. H .Meeir, refinery manager. told newsmen that the building program is aimed at making the Baytown operation the "best refinery in the world." It currently ranks second in size in the United States, behind Humble's Baton Rouge, La., plant. Meier quashed a rumor of plans to lay off supervisory personnel at the plant. "We are hiring people," he emphasized. Humble's efforts and success at combating pollution of air and water were related by Sid Brady, research specialist. Sulphur dioxide, cause of the familiar odor which once surrounded nearly all refining operations, has virtually been eliminated through recovery of the sulphur and improved refining techniques, Brady said. Release into the air of extremely fine particles of catalyst has been cut steadily and will be made a negligible factor with completion of the giant, new catalytic cracker. Flaring is held to a bare minimum to prevent formation of soot and as older units wear out conversion to smokeless flares is accomplished, he said. Water pollution is being combated through lower water consumption and extensive purification processes, including oil and water separaters and a sanitary sewage system. Baytonian Injured In Auto Collision Mrs. Frankie Brame, 415 E. Hunnicutt, was admitted to San Jacinto Methodist Hospital Thursday after she was injured in a car wreck at Fourth and Defee. She was taken to the hospital in an Earthman ambulance. A car driven by Charles L. Shipman, 309 Graham, collided with Mrs. Brame's car at the intersection. Patrolman Ronald Cooper charged Shipman with failure to yield right of way and having no operator's license. cross thinking board. Allen Rice Jr., said he really couldn't take issue on the appointments. "I iiked it and I don't," he said. Hunt added later that he felt,-; "We got the best deal (in the appointments) from the present school board in the appoint - ments than we've ever gotten from them." All of the candidates except one, Spivey, said they were in favor of separation 01 the two! boards. Spivey admitted that i he was undecided at the time of ] the voting and that h e did notj vote against the separation "although now I can see I was wrong." Other opinions included Dr. Sam Hastings: "We missed the boat several years ago ... in not expanding into the San Jacinto District. I foresee a first class, four - year college in the future." Hunt: "I was heart broken when we did not expand to thej north and south.' 1 Rice: "A marvelous thing. . . sorry it didn't happen many! years ago." Also Miss McNulty and E. L.! Gunn both said it should have' been separated several years ago. Another question addressed to all candidates was that of whether or not they thought Dean Walter Rundell should be elected president of the college. Not all chose to answer this. Dr. Hastings said the progress of the college now is due j to the dean's efficiency "in spite of efforts of some others." Gunn said he thought the dean would a "strong contender and a compliment to any college. Hunt, the first to answer, said he thought the dean was the "most competent and well qualified" person to serve the college as president. Miss McNulty i expressed her admiration for the dean and said he and several other candidates' names had been submitted to the regents' committee. On th question of federal aid, answers were: Rice said he was in favor of it for buildings and equipment, bat "in other areas I'm not so sure whether I'm for it or not." Gunn: "Federal aid is here to Dr. Hastings: 'Tin afraid federal aid is here. Not accepting is like cutting off your nose to spite your face." Hunt: "I don't think of federalK that he was for federal aid, thought it was a good thing "for specific needs." '" aid as 'They' but as 'we' -It" won't say I'm for federal aid per se."
