THE BAYTOWiN SUN Wednesday, August 26, 1907 11-A State news Texas slips in teacher pay ranking • DALLAS (AP) —' The sagging state economy has effectively eliminated the sharp salary gains Texas teachers got from the education reform measures implemented by the Legislature in 1984, a recent national survey shows. "Texas teacher salaries are under the national average, and the typical raise of. 1.9 percent for Texas teachers last year was 47th among the 50 states. ; After rising during a $2.8 billion school reform program, Texas teaching salaries have fallen back to their pre-reform ranking in a new survey by the National Education Association. The state now ranks 26th among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, the same ranking Texas had in 1984 just before the Legislature passed the reform law. Texas ranked 23rd in the NEA ranking last year and higher than that in 1985, the first year of the state's education reform. The average teacher salary in Texas is 524,927 a year; the national average is $26,704. Contras Bush topic at Legion meet SAN AiNTONlO (AP) — The United States will continue to strive for peace in civil war-ravaged Nicaragua, Vice President George Bush told veterans attending the national American Legion convention. Bush, a World War II.Navy fighter pilot, said the Reagan administration is committed to helping the Contra rebels fight the Sari- dinista regime in the Centra] American country. , "We will respect whatever choice the Nicaraguan people make, if that choice is made in certifiably free elections, elections that are wide open to candidates and parties who disagree with the Marxist regime in Managua," Bush said Tuesday to some of the 18,000 delegates to the 69th annual convention meeting here this week. ' "We must resist at all costs, however, a sharn — an illusion of progress that takes the pressure off the Sandinistas, cripples the Contras and strenghtens the Communists' grip on power," Bush said. S&L bailout may not help thrift industry AMARLLLO (AP) — The $10.8 billion bailout of the savings and loan industry's insurance fund that was signed into law earlier this month may not be enough help for the ailing thrift industry, the nation's top bank regulator said. Robert C. Clarke, U.S. Comptroller of Currency, said Tuesday that recapitalization is the best way to bolster the savings and loan insurance fund, the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corp. The $10.8 billion FSL1C rescue measure provides for the sale of bonds, the proceeds of which will be used to merge or close thrifts operating at a loss. Clarke said that money was needed years ago when thrifts were first allowed to offer sen-ices similar to banks. Clarke said he recommended a S15 billion recapitalization plan for the FSL1C that, with fees from savings and loans, would total $23 billion. Portable potties issue causes stink SAN" ANTONIO. (AP) — When it was first announced that Pope John Paul 11 would say Mass at an outdoor site across the road from Alicia Fahnert's home, the family thought they would get a good view of the event. ,. But that was before authorities placed about 250 portable toilets about 40 feet from the entrance gate to the Fahnert home. ; -Now Mrs. Fahnert Is raising a stink to get the portable potties located elsewhere on the H4-acre site where the Pope will say Mass Sept. 13 before an estimated 500.000 people. i : . "This is such a disgusting sight," she told the San Antonio Express- News Tuesday. "They're all dilapidated and they block our view of the;Mass site. 5 LUCKY HOMEOWNERS tut) n«*dt)d to takt) Advantage of hug* discounts on display pools 20 year warranty pools from To see If you qualify call TRI POOL (713) 591-1199collect Financing g Inttfiltotion Available ONE DAY ONLY Thursday, August 27th DIAMONDS REMOUNTED While You Wait* i •i-.j-^ss^rr-i r—v I OV£TR ^OQO PAIRS OF FAMOUS MAKETR AND DESIGNER FA O_ ; SHOES T3EjMC:j 'UNLOADED r SALE STARTS* 10=00 AH Off RETAIL • NATURALIZED. i^WEST'.
