>A—LUiBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Thursday Morning. April 3, 1975 Zoning Commission Presented Report On Historical Sites By VAUGHN HKNUHIR Avalanche-Journal SUM Sixty historical sites that one day may be protected by special zoning districts were identified in a report to the Luboock Planning and Zoning Commission Wednesday. I. D. BIGLEK Paimy Bigler Named Floyd Man Of Year FLOYD. N.M. (Special) — I. D. "Panny" Bigler has been! named Floyd's "Man of the Year" in conjunction with the annual Lions Club Jamboree. A slide presentation on the structures — including two that could qualify for the National Historic .Register—will continue when the commission meets tonicht to consider five requests for zoning changes, Tlie commission convenes at 7 p.m. in cily council chambers. "Lubbock has had individuals who have left their marks through their acts and through their architecture," said a narration of \Vetlnesday's presentation. "It is these historic resources that are the tangible evidence of those that have pre- ceeded us." A four-month study by the Lubbock County Historical Survey Committee, under contract with the city, searched out and evaluated buildings and sites according to their historical and/ or architectural significance. Two buildings were graded high enough to be listed in the national register, according to tlie report. One is the former ranch home of George Boles, built about 1890 and identified by its unique eight sided wooden silo. The home and silo are still standing in far East Lubbock off 19th Street. Another is a mansion built by Warren Bacon about 1915. The businessman participated in a loyalty campaign during the depression which helped keep Lubbock- banks from closing, according to historians. The mansion is presently the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house at 1S02 Broadway. The study recommended a procedure to monitor threats to historic sites, to encourage public interest in historic preservation and to develop laws to protect designated areas of historical interest. Federal planning funds financed the historical survey HEATHCLIFF North In Choice Position rr\ "\/r • i • V7"* j. lo Manipulate Viet Each year during the Jamboree an outstanding citizen is singled out.

The Communist-led forces (would likely see distinct political and propaganda advantages in talking soon, but it would have to be with a government shorn of any trace of President Nguyen Van Thieu. In any case, the United States has little 'hope of having much to say about whether there are talks and what might he negotiated. The 1973 Paris accords that got the U.S. military out of Vietnam are, for all practical purposes, dead and the South Vietnam that existed then has vanished. Only 25 per cent of that South Vietnam remains, and as stun- ning victory succeeds stunning victory for the Communist-led alliance, • Saigon's politicians may be ^thinking the time is'un- comfortably short to salvage something, however little, from the wreckage. Obviously they cannot rely heavily on the military any more. The ground is rapidly slipping from under Thicu, and even his own Senate seems to have turned against him.

Approval of the request would slash the one-way cost of transcontinental air travel more than one third below present coach fares. The total cost of a ticket would be $96.46 counting- tax and the airport and a campanion urban image analysis as part of the city's comprehensive plan.

Areas such as Broadway and 19th Street south of the university are dotted with some of the top 50 historic structures located in the survey. Bertram said areas of this nature would be prime candidates for speeial DH zoning, if such a district is adopted in the future. Portions of the canyon lakes area also woulo be a possible DH zone to encourage special development standards to be compatible with the recreation area, he has indicated. Now that the historical survey is complete and officially adopted by the county committee .Bertram said the n ext step will be to develop procedures to update the study periodically.

The big airline—the world's argest supplemental carrier and the third largest U.S. jarner operating international- y—tied its bargain basement fare proposal to a request for sermission to become a regu- ai-ly scheduled U. S. au-line. It asked the CAB for ixpedited action on its request, iaying' approval of the proposal \vO u !• d be a booh both to Consumers and to tlie airline ndustry. 'If the CAB would approve his filing, it would open up ranscontinental service to a whole new market of consumers who cannot now afford to :ly," said World Airways President Edward J. Daly. 'It would also be good for our industry. It would create more in-flight and ground service jobs, more income for terminal concessionaires, more ncome for the airports themselves and ... would obviously joost tourism in the markets involved." World Airway's net income in 19T4 was $21.2 million, compared with Si million the year re. The 1974 net included I million income from discontinued operations representing the after-lax gain on the sale of first Western Bank of Los Angeles. Daly, who has been in Vietnam personally supervising the airlift efforts, said in a statement the fare reduction was expected to create an annual traffic of 420,000 passengers for his airline and to eam an estimated $38 million per year. The proposed flights would link the New York and Washington areas with the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, but they would serve less-frequented airports at each site, cutting costs for both passengers and the airline itself. World Airways has been transporting food, fuel and ammunition to Phnom Penh as part of the American airlift to the Cambodian capital. It also evacuated refugees from Da Nang and flew the last flight out with Daly aboard before the city fell to the Communists. in the presidency are numbered. Possibly at this moment a movement is under way to push him out, on the assumption that military resistance ds doomed to failure and It is time to seek negotiations with the victors. Saigon politicians are aware there are circumstances in which the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong would 'agree to talk short of total military victory. They know for sure, also, that this would require the political disappearance of Thieu and his close allies; The Viet Cong and North Vietnamese are not now and never have been averse to talk- Woman Reportedly Raped In City A ID-yeur-ohl Lubbock woman was reportedly raped by a black man in her apartment About 9:40 a.m. the black man walked into the woman's apartment east of the campus and told her to be quiet after she screamed, police said. After asking if she was alone, the assailant pushed her into the bedroom and onto the bed, according to the police. The black man told her to cover her taca with a pillow and then attacked her, police said. The man was described as about 6 feet tall, wearing a rec and gold plaid shirt, wine-colored pants and platform shoes. Ha had an Afro with long side burns and was believed to be in his mid-twenties, police said. "WE HEAR A DIFFERENT DRUMMER" With proven success! Try our unique,'persona) brand of real estate service.

They could hardly be expected to demand less than a dominating vale for the Viet Cong's Provisional Revolutionary Government — PRO —in view of the military realities. The PRG now is probablv supremely confident it will eventually run the whole show in the South. Meantime it would look a bit better to the outside i'Id and in fact •would be a good deal less expensive if the military conquest were a bit short of total. ' , • There is likely to be little sympathy in Hanoi or any other Communist capital, ,includJtng Moscow, for American or American-inspired appeals harking back to the 1973 Paris accords, which seemed all along to have been made to be violated by both sides. Hanoi long had pledged to "liberate" all the South, and North Vietnamese Politburo members are unlikely to be sentimental about agreement s. - • _^ HONG KONG CUSTOM TAILORS IN IUBBOCK LAST 2 DAYS ONLY APRIL 3 & 4 Silk Mohtlr SulU , Wt.M Silk SrwrkiWn Sultl MM* W*«l Slwrktkln Sulls U1M Cmt.m Mtitt Shlrtl *7.M For AppointmtntCall W.CuiromFit Any Siz* or Tail* Or Visit Mr. T.T.Gill 762-0681 In Town Inn 1202 Ma in HourH».m.T»lp,m.
