McGovern went over the 1,000 mark Saturday in his quest for delegates to the Democratic National Convention. McGovern picked up 13 more delegates from four Colorado congressional districts Friday night and early Saturday, virtually assuring him of the major share of the state's 36-member delegation to the July 10 Miami Beach convention. In North Dakota Friday, McGovern outdistanced Minnesota Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey nearly 2 to 1. McGovern received 11 of the state's 20 delegates, or 7.7 convention votes. The state has 14 votes at Miami. Humphrey received six delegates, or 4.2 convention votes. Three delegates, or 2.1 voles, are uncommitted. McGovern's total delegate strength nows stands at 1,019.5. It takes 1.509 to get the nomination. Humphrey is second with 379.3, followed by Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace with 365 and Maine Sen. Edmund S. Muskie with 182.55. President Nixon already has 938 Republican delegate votes, with only 674 needed for the nomination at the GOP Convention Aug. 21 at Miami Beach. Connecticut, Utah, Idaho and Montana were to select their delegates Saturday, with McGovern expected to increase his delegate total with returns from those states. Only one primary remains- New York's on Tuesday with 278 delegates at slake. The additions to McGovern's camp in Colorado broughl his delegate lotal from the stale's five congressional districls to 17.

I J < i< n, new Installations and 129 expansions were reported. Louis' article in "Texas Industrial Expansion" said most of the industrial activity is still in the metropolitan areas, with Houston the leader with 34 new or expanded plants. Dallas was next with 25. Fort Worth had 24 and San Antonio 21. He said, however, the shift of industry away from the cities that was evident last year has continued. In 1971, the metropolitan areas attracted about 65 per cent of the new plants and expansions, but this year that figure has dropped to just under 60 per cent. The most expansive industries in 1972, Louis said, have been fabricated metal products, transportation equipment, apparel and chemicals.

WELLINGTON (AP) - The lively wit of New Zealand's Prime Minister, John R. Marshall, was surpassed here by a bland Frenchman at an official luncheon to a visiting French Parliamentary delegation.

Durand Large Drum and Aimless Marching Corps is coming to Fink. Mayor Pat Albright said she was notified Saturday that this celebrated group will be on hand during National Fink Day this Thursday. "Both the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers have been dickering for months to get this group to perform between innings when they are on national TV," said Mayor Albright. "But it's just another first for National Fink Day for us." It is highly likely that the appearance of the band—hometown unknown—might inspire the Fink Poet Laureate 0. L. Fink to new heights this year in this tiny North Texas community. In its last appearance in a Christmas Day parade, the Asher B. Durand group won firsl place. And Ihey all wore Fink shirts as they marched, too. "We invited them to come out on Arbor Day and planl a tree at the Fink Landfill Dump," said Mrs. Albright. "But somsthing happened to our order for trees and we finked oul. However, Ihe founder of this group's birthday comes up in August, and we are sure going to try and plant a tree at the Fink dump then. They really work hard al Irying to put a little beauty in everything." One of the most spectacular events of National Fink Week, which starts Monday, will be the arrival of the first new family in West Fink, the new Fink addition. Mrs Albright sought the addition to cut down on any encroachment on Fink by neighboring towns. The Milton Poth family of four is due to move in during National Fink week and that will boost the population of Fink and West Fink to 12, which ties the all-time high in modern times. "Once, back when they had a post office, they had more people here, but I don't remember how many," said Mayor Albright. Willard Albright, husband of the mayor and the Mayor pro tern of Fink, said they'll have enough barbecue this year to feed 1,500 visitors on National Fink Day. "We hit almost 1,000 last year before we ran oul, and we've increased our order 50 per cent this year, "he said. Lt. Dale Fink of the U.S. Naval Academy will become an honorary citizen of Fink during the week. The Navy demanded equal time after Mayor Albright had agreed to make Army Cadet J. Kingsley Fink an honorary citizen. The hummingbird lays the smallest egg of any bird. The egg is about the size of a bean. On two separate counts June Thomas, Pampa and Mrs. Danny D. Lane, Skellytown, paid a fine of one dollar and costs for swindling with a worthless check. Gov. Wallace Will Undergo Surgery Today SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Alabama Gov, George C. Wallace is to undergo surgery Sunday for removal of a bullet from his spine and to learn how much he can expect to recover from paralysis of his legs. Wallace has been paralyzed since May 15 when he was shot at nearby Laurel, Md., just after making a speech in his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Doctors have said that only with removal of the bullet which caused the paralysis can it be determined whether the impairment will be permanent or'whether he can expect to recover at least partial use of his legs. During five hours of emergency surgery just after the shooting, it was decided to remove another bullet but not to risk taking out the slug lodged in the spine. Assessing Wallace's chances for participating in the Miami Beach sessions, even though probably in a wheel chair, Dr. Hamilton Hutchinson, the governor's personal physician, said: "The governor expects to attend, and we hope that he can do so." . The operation Sunday at Holy Cross Hospital is called a lami- nectomy and is a delicate one usually requiring about two hours. Deputies Probe Area Theft Case GROOM—Carson County sheriff's deputies are still trying lo pick up Ihe Irail of a half of beef, slabs of bacon and several cured hams laken from the Homen Meat Co. last week.
