««thYEAR Wednesday, June 14, 1872 Special Legislative Meet Opens To Discuss Appropriations Bill AUSTIN, Tex. (APi-A special money-spending session of the legislature convenes today without the usual threat to Texans' bankrolls. Gov. Preston Smith planned to tell the lawmakers his ideas for avoiding new taxes this summer shortly after they gathered in the capitol. The legislature's outgoing leaders already have endorsed a general appropriations bill for the year starting Sept. 1, which eventually can be financed from existing taxes. Such a bill was issued Tuesday by the Legislative Budget Board, of which Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes is chairman and House Speaker Rayford Price is vice- chairman. A board staff member said the measure, calling for an expenditure of $818 million from general revenue, "doesn't require a tax bill." The budget board's measure appropriates money to finance public welfare only through April 30. This leaves the burden of passing taxes to finance the RODNEY G. HYATT Conservationist Transferred To Office Here Soil conservationist Rodney G. Hyatt has been transferred to Pampa from the Lamesa district, according to Mickey Black of the Soil Conservation Service. He will work out of the local office particularly with the Gray County Soil and Water Conservation District. A native of San Saba, Hyatt has been with SCS two years. He graduated from John Tarleton College in 1969 with a degree in general agriculture. "We are very pleased to have Rodney on our staff at Pampa and feel he will make himself most valuable." Black said in introducing the new man. Hyatt and wife. Kay, live at 1329 E. Kingsmill. Cleared by Court John Thomas Scopes was convicted of teaching evolution and fined $100 after the famous "Monkey Trial" of 1925 in Dayton, Tenn., but was later cleared by the state supreme court, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica.

Oid ooflttS before 7 p.m. w**Uoyi, 10 a.m. Sundayi remaining four months—about $78 million—to the 1973 regular session. Smith, Barnes, Price and nearly half the 181 legislators are lame ducks. Price was defeated for re-election to the House in the June 3 runoff primary. Barnes and Smith lost in the May 6 Democratic primary campaign for governor. An innovation gunned through a three-day special session in March by Barnes and Price- joint House-Senate committee hearings on appropriations- will get its first test. Joint hearings on the budget board's bill start at 1:30 p.m. today and are scheduled through Friday afternoon. Smith forced the special session by vetoing all fiscal 1973 appropriations last June in what he described as an economy move. Since then, the comptroller's estimates of revenue available for spending in fiscal 1973 have increased by about 1100 million. Senators will keep busy acting on 400 appointments made by Smith and which require senate confirmation. Hearings are expected on such controversial new officeholders as Secretary of State Bob Bullock vending commission chairman Raymond B. Williams and State Insurance Board Chairman Larry Teaver. Estimates of trie session's length range from two weeks to the constitutional limit, 30 days. How long the session will run depends largely on whether lawmakers want to consider other matters besides appropriations. Smith already has said he would open his call to include repeal of a controversial law that requires trailers to have independent braking systems. Barnes said he would like Smith to submit ethics legislation, but the governor has indicated he thinks that subject should be left to the incoming 1973 legislature. Specialist Envisages No End To Arms Race HOUSTON (AP)-The possibilities of nuclear war are less today but that does not mean violent conflict will decrease, Dr. Geoffrey Kemp, a specialist in armaments said here Tuesday. Kemp, with the Institute for Strategic Studies in London, warned delegates to the 63rd annual convention of Rotary International that as the major nuclear powers achieve more arms control, "we should not think that this is going to herald an era of peace." On the same panel, John A. Hannah, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, said while the cold war is winding down, "another confrontation may be winding up. This is the confrontation between rich and poor." A third panelist, Dr. Jan Prawitz, special assistant for disarmament of the Swedish Department of Defense, said ordinary citizens can aid the cause of disarmament by informing themselves and thinking about the problems in order to produce more ideas for disarmament. Kemp said the recent agreement between the United States and the Soviet Union to limit the quantity of arms each may possess means both sides will try to improve the quality of their forces. "In short, I do not envisage major financial savings as a result of the SALT talks, and I do not envisage an end to the nuclear arms race," Kemp said. While Kemp said he sees fewer conflicts between the major powers there will be others to take their place. "In the last few weeks, it has been estimated that between 50.000 and 100,000 people have been killed in the small African state of Burundia..." he said. He pointed out that many think of peace simply as the lack of violent conflict. "Yet for many peoples of the world an absence of violent conflict may not be a desired goal unless it is accompanied with justice and a more equitable distribution of resources." Discussing the probable conflict between rich and poor countries, Hannah said less than a third of the world's population consume more than 80 per cent of the world's resources. This problem is complicated by the population explosion, mostly in less developed countries like India "where there is a net increase of one million more mouths to feed every four weeks. "Rapid population growth erodes many of the developing countries' best efforts to provide better lives of their people, "he said. Yet rich countries are moving very slowly in response for requests for expanded trade, stabilized world markets and prices and an open monetary system, Hannah said. Amateur Radio Operators Here To Set Up Field Day Stations Local amateur radio operators will set up two radio stations on the Billy Davis Ranch three miles southeast of Lefors on June 24. This is known as "Field Day." Field Day is sponsored each year by the Amateur Radio Relay League. National Association of Amateurs for the United States and Canada and runs for a period of 24 hours. The local group of 20 ham operators will operate continuous from 2 p.m. Saturday until 2 p.m. Sunday. All equipment for the Field Day site will be supplied by gasoline driven electric power generators, just as would be used should local power fail during a real emergency. During such an emergency local ham's would provide communications with the outside world. An estimated 12,000 amateur radio operators from Nova Scotia to Hawaii, the Yukon to Puerto Rico will gather up two-way short wave sets, antennas, motor driven generators, tents, cots and picnic food for Field Day. Anyone interested is welcome to come out and visit during Field Day. All communications will under the call of W5TSV, Pampa Amateur Radio Club Station. Texas Demo Delegates To Convention Selected MODERN MOSCOW demonstrates that city life Is looking up behind the Iron Curtain. Modern hlghrlseg lining Kalinin Avenue almost overpower the onetime highpoint of the capital's skyline, the tower of Moscow University, a reminder of the former Soviet preference for "wedding cake" Stalinist architecture. Lefors Council Democratic Trio Jailed To Crack Down On Vandals LEFORS—Vandalism was the primary concern of the Lefors City Council at its regular monthly meeting last evening at the Lefors Civic Center. During the past month, extensive damage has been caused to both city and private property by minors snooting B-B guns In the city limits. Virtually all the street lights in Lefors were shot out recently and replaced at considerable cost. City Attorney Harold L. Comer advised the council that such malicious mischief by minors should be reported to the juvenile officer or local constable for disciplinary actions. Comer advised that criminal complaints against minors over 17 could be made with the Gray County attorney for prosecution in county court. Depending upon the value of the property destroyed, prosecution could result in a fine or imprisonment. Texas law provides that parents of minors maliciously causing damage to private or public property are liable for the damages up to $5.000. The council asked the cooperation of all Lefors residents in cautioning their children not to shoot B-B guns in the city limits and in reporting to the council, constable or juvenile officer the names of minors seen causing damage to private or public property. Dallas Trio Charged In Shooting DALLAS (AP) — Arrests of three men in West Texas were followed Tuesday night by discovery of the body of Marie Childs. 45, in a vacant Dallas house. Preliminary examination indicated Mrs. Childs. who disappeared early Monday from a drycleaning and laundry station, showed she was raped and shot once in the back of the head, the county medical examiner's office reported. Officers said a hitchhiker told authcrites at Van Horn, in Culberson County, that three men gave him a ride near there but abandoned the car and started walking on Interstate 10 after hearing a broadcast about the disappearance of Mrs. Childs in Dallas and a description of her stolen automobile. Sheriff's deputies said they took the three into custody as they were trying to thumb a ride 40 miles east of Van Horn. IOCC OK's Policy Resolution On Home Petroleum Resources HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP)The Interstate Oil Compact Commission approved Tuesday a resolution saying failure to develop the full potential of domestic petroleum resources can result in part from federal policies. The action at the concluding session of the midyear meeting of the 34-state advisory agency followed a Monday vote to take no position on a congressional resolution amendment questioning the right of the compact to endorse such controversial federal matters as oil import controls and oil depletion tax allowances. Tuesday's policy resolution was modified two hours before final adoption to eliminate any •possible language that might offend the compact's congressional critics. In its original form, the resolution said failure to develop full domestic petroleum resources "is not limited to operating policies nor the action or lack of action by state regulatory agencies, but can result from ill-advised federal policies." At a breakfast meeting, the resolutions committee headed by Ben Ramsey, member of the Texas oil and gas regulatory agency, struck the world "ill- advised." "This resolution is in the interest of the consumers and the nation's welfare as a whole," Ramsey said in asking for and receiving unanimous approval of the resolution. The resolution also reaffirmed the compact's pleas for a strengthened mandatory oil import control program, for removal of obstacles restricting interstate sales of natural gas, and for the development of long-range oil and gas policies encompassing North America. The House-amended congressional resolution that now is back in the Senate would extend the compact's legal status until Aug. 31,1974. Gov. Stanley K. Hathaway of Wyoming said Tuesday the House critics contend the interstate body chartered 38 years ago to serve as a forum on oil and gas conservation matters should steer clear of conservation tools with political overtones, including oil import controls. "We feel we have not stepped out of the bounds set by our charter." Hathaway said. "Alaska has 10 billion barrels or more of oil with no way to get it to the lower 48 states," he said. "This makes me wonder when the consumer states will wake up and wonder whether they can get this Alaskan oil at all." GRAFFITI SCRUBBERS NEW YORK (AP) - Family Court Judge Shirley Kram has ordered two pre-teen-age boys to spend time scrubbing from subway station walls graffiti they placed there with a paint- spray can. Rather than place them in an institution for youthful offenders, Judge Kram said: "I wanted to give them the chance to adopt a responsible attitude, rather than to punish them." Judge Kram is the mother of a teen-age son. Electors Selected SAN ANTONIO, Tex.

STEALING IS, TOO .WASHINGTON (AP) - A $10 bill autographed by President Nixon recently was stolen from the Cheverly, Md., residence of U. S. Rep. Manuel Lu- janJr.,R-N.M. Lujan received the bill on March 10, 1971, when he presented the President with the first ticket to the opening game of the Babe Ruth Baseball League World Series held in Albuquerque in August 1971. Nixon insisted on paying for the ticket. He borrowed $10 from an aide, John Nidecker. Basic Medicare Insurance Rate To Go Up From $5.60 To $5.80 The basic premium rate for the medical insurance part of Medicare will go up from $5.60 to $5.80 a month beginning July 1. according to Howard L. Weatherly, social security branch manager in Pampa. The medical insurance part of Medicare helps pay for doctor bills and a variety of other medical expenses for persons 65 and over. The program is funded by individual premiums matched by the Federal Government. "The 20-cent increase in the, premium in July compares to a 30-cent increase in 1971 and a $1.30 increase in 1970." Weatherly said. The low increase this year, Weatherly said, reflects savings in the administration of Medicare as well as lower anticipated medical costs because of the Price Commission's guidelines limiting physicians' fee increases to an average 2'? per cent a year. The Medicare law requires an annual review of the cost of the medical insurance program. The premium rate is adjusted to cover the estimated medical expenses of Medicare patients during the 12 months beginning July 1. Pampa Office Supply Co. "Everything FOR THE OFFICE" 211 N.
