Corporations to help with battleship HOUSTON (AP) — Four corporations are cooperating in a 90-day campaign that could bring more than fl million for the rusting Battleship Texas, officials said. The project, spearheaded by Alcoa Aluminum, will involve recycling aluminum cans through Alcoa and Reynolds Aluminum centers throughout the state. "We wanted to find a project in Texas that was important and the Texas is surely that, "John Van Devender, supervisor of Alcoa's marketing communications department, said Thursday. All the money produced from Texans turning in recycleable aluminum in the 90-day period beginning Sept. 1 will go directly to the historic battleship. Van Devender said although no one can estimate exactly how much will be raised, well over $l million would be possible if 10 percent of all beverage cans bought in that 3-month period were recycled. Helping in the recycling campaign are Texaco. Coca-Cola and Patrick Media. Patrick will donate 300 billboards to promote Ihe project, Coca-Cola will advertise the battleship campaign on the sides of its canned beverages and Texaco will distribute posters and maintain collection sites at 750 service stations in Houston, Dallas. Fort Worth. San Antonio and Austin. Experts say if the ship is not drv-docked soon, it might never be saved. More than $800.000 already has been committed to the battleship by the state, said Wilson Dolman. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department director. A $5 million grant from the U.S. Navy is being held up in a legal battle between the state and the Battleship Texas Advisory Board's former fundraiser. That money would be enough to ensure the Texas would be restored.
