"We have trimmed and ret- rimmed. We have discarded. We have sliced to the bone— and in some instances, even going to the marrow," Wade said, but "to ask for less would, in our opinion, make us derelict in our responsibilities." The department's budget proposal includes 18 million for a new school for the mentally retarded in Fort Worth and $2.7 million for the El Paso State Center for Human Development, which will serve the mentally ill and mentally retarded in that area. The nearest facility to El Paso for the mentally ill is Big Spring, 345 miles away. The nearest facilities for the mentally retarded are at Lubbock, 382 miles, and Abilene, 459 miles. Wade said there is a critical need for a 100-bed facility for drug abuse patients at San Antonio State Hospital, and more money also is needed to open 256 beds at Corpus Christ! State school and 512 new beds at Richmond State School. He said the department wants a center for mentally retarded at San Antonio and mental health centers at Dallas and Houston.

(AP)-EXPLO '72 began to wind down today, with the 72,000 official delegates attending evangelism training seminars in preparation for a final Cotton Bowl rally tonight and a massive Jesus music festival all day Saturday. The conference, sponsored by the Campus Crusade for Christ International, has stressed youth since the beginning Monday, although some of the delegates and most of the leaders are adults. Delegates were expected to attend 15 hours of lectures and seminars during the week on evangelistic methods, and then use their training to "practice" on the citizenry of Dallas what they have learned about spreading the Word. 345,000 Americans Will Die Of Cancer In '72, Says Doctor Five Pampa residents attended the annual district meeting of the American Cancer Society Wednesday at Holiday Inn in Amarillo. Pampa respresentatives were Newt Secrest, Mrs. Relmand Lenville, Mrs. Glen Larsen, Mrs. O.C. Penn and Mrs. Kermit Lawson. Norton Bicol, DDS, of the Potter County Board of Directors, delivered the main address on "The Cancer Problem and the American Cancer Society." Dr. Bicol noted that one in four persons will get cancer during their lives. In America, this would be 52 million people. Of these, there would be 3.5 million deaths, with one million under treatment. About 650,000 new cases are reported each year. During 1971, there were 332,000 deaths reported from cancer. Dr. Bicol said 345,000 will die of cancer in 1972, one every two minutes. Due to detection and treatment, 217,000 will survive cancer this year because of the efforts of doctors and the American Cancer Society. Dr. Bicol stressed the need for annual checkups to detect cancer and start treatment, if needed. Three new directors were selected at the meeting. New district directors are Dr. Lee Harris, Amarillo, medical; Larry Fuller, Borger, lay personnel, and Mrs. Helen Cullers, Shamrock, lay personnel. Don Curtis, DDS, presided over the sessions, which began with registration at 11 a.m. During the orientation session at 12:30 p.m., a panel presentation was given on cancer, particularly in relation to treatment. District accomplishments and potential were, discussed during a session starting at 1:30 p.m. Items considered included public education, professional education, service and rehabilitation, and fund raising. Group sessions were held beginning at 2:20 p.m. Mrs. Penn attended the session of public education; Mrs. Lenville, service and rehabilitation, and Mrs. Lawson and Secrest, fund raising. Seminars have taken on such diverse subjects as "Love, Sex and Dating;" "How To Utilize Your School Newspaper;" "How to Work with High School Students—Stragegy and Overview;" and "Self-acceptance." Problems have been numerous but mostly minor, except for the 14-year-old youth who drowned earlier in the week. "The sheer size of the conference means there will be instances of personal inconvenience. Some delegates had to wait 13 hours to get their hotel room keys. There have been reports of people waiting over an hour to make a phone call, and then there is the problem of finding baths for those who are camping out," an EXPLO official said. An example of EXPLO's size can be found in the food menu which lists 30.000 sandwiches, 145.000 boxes of cereal and 162,000 pieces of fruit. Also listed are 61,000 pieces of chicken. 5,400 gallons of tea, 120 tons of ice and 30,000 candy bars. EXPLO is being financed primary by registration fees—$20 before a March deadline and $25 after the deadline. These fees brought in an estimated $.75 million to pay expenses estimated at $2.24 million. Major expenses were $497,000 for conference operations, $285.000 for materials, $346,000 for general office expenses and $300,000 for scholarships.
