Texas 65 Health Insurance Plans New Enrollment H. Lewis Rietz of Houston, president of the Texas 65 Health Insurance Association, has announced that the executive committee of the voluntary health insurance association has authorized an additional fopen enrollment period for Texans 65 years of age and past. The dates for the next; open enrollment are expected to be announced within .the next ten days, Riefe stated. "Over 50,000 Texans over the age of 65 took advantage of the first Texas 65 enrollment last October. However, it is now apparent that many more of our senior citizens wish to avail themselves of the advantages of Texas 65," Rietz said. Texas 65 was authorized by unanimous vote of the (past •session of the Texas Legislature and wasi endorsed by Gov. John Connally as, in his (words, "a great; step forward in helping our senior citizens and their families care for their own health insurance needs." Benefits of the program are underwritten by 64 insurance companies doing business in Texas. Personals Mrs. Opal (Boverie and her niece, Miss Cheryl Estes', of Lulbbock were here during the week end to visit -their (parents, -Mrs. Edith Estes, and Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Estes. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Long of Spade spent the past week end in the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. Horace Clay. Miss Pat Lusk of Plainvdew was a house .guest in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ocie Scott this past week end.

Reputedly the third-largest cavern in the world, Texas Longhorn annually attracts more than 45,000 visitors who express, in varying degrees, similar reactions to the cavern's underground m«vel«. Parts of the cavern are named for Texas outlaw Sam Bass who used the cave for a hideout in the 1870's and is alleged to have buried a $2-million treasure there. The cavern is focal point of 708-acre Texas Longhorn Cavern State Park located near Burnef, just off U.S. Highway 281 on Park Road 4. LOOKINGAHEA by Dr. George S. Benson WHAT FOREIGN POLICY? President Johnson, nearly everyone notices, has Ibeen almost too busy. He has the world's" biggest job, But he is required to build fences, nob along the Pedernales but along the Potomac and dn the fifty states. The first law of political leadership pertains to survival, and Mr. Johnson wishes a full term, okayed by the electorate. Because of this and 1 his heavy responsibilities, it has Ibeen noticed that Mr. Johnson neglects foreign affairs. Another guess is that he knows the muddle is too much for the next few months', that it is not all his doing, and that it is so toad it canoti get much worse. But it may get worse. Events are proving that U.S. foreign relations, lacking firm leadership, can get into serious disarray. Problems torture America all over the globe. Attacks, and affrontgi, and defeats occur daily. /Little countries that vote in the U.N. step up the blackmail they have been encouraged to use. Sacking embassies and destroying U.S. property i& a Ipopular pastime. This always impresses the leader of the free world, as well ns any nations wanting foreign aid. Besides <the heckling, the responsibilities that attend our world position are most awesome. Mistakes are bound to occur. Some reverses in this divided and complicated task are certain. Big powers are not likely to be loved 1jy lesser, nationalistic states. Call some of the mob scenes foreign aid "promotion," political 1 steam-letting, or plain blackmail. Call some of it manufactured in Moscow. The world, perhaps, only seems to be turning wholly anti-American. Nevertheless, things do look worse than they have for many months if not years. The price of leadership is high. We have not always understood this'. We thought the (price was our dollars fpr their affection and gratitude. A fantastic, free purse of some $104 billions has been devoted to buying appreciation. Today, some of the nations we've helped most are the very ones most active in anti-American riots and violence. Lacking has Ibeen respect, and an awareness that the U.S. would defend its (best interests. How long the U.S. will permit this 'bullying from lesser countries while trying to be fair and helpful to them is part of the problem. What has been the basic flaw? It has been lack of a firm foreign policy that can be understood and interpreted around the globe. We have not been flacking in alliances, but these have entangled us in so many confusing situations that peolple have concluded that we understand neither other nations nor ourselves. That is not entirely true, of course. But it does seem that we have been floundering about without a consistent and explainable national and world policy, Our foreign accomplishments dtaring recent years have amounted only to various' broadening 'agreements with the Soviet Union. These include the test-ban treaty, the hot line between our two capitals, and other agreements. One looks in vain through the record for positive developments that involve no lost ground. The retreats and the failures despite the expenditure of billions in aid, are evident wherever you look: Laos, New Guinea, Africa, or Cuba. And now, South Vietnam, as well as other outposts in Africa and Latin America, threaten -to slip into the Soviet orbit.

While the two powers have agreed to disagree, we are able to allow (the Communists to go ahead making the world their own. If the U.S. does not more effectively unite the freedom loving nations into opposition to world Communism, it may soon be too /late. This is an issue that should, and could, be the basis of new foreign approaches. A strong foreign policy could be built, whenever Mr. Johns9ii (or his successor) can get the time and renovate the State Department, around the idea of freedom and opposition to Communism. It is the kind 1 of confrontation that Mr. Khrushchev understands and respects. It is the kind that meets his. noisiest objections 1 . (He respects NATO, 'but he will use whatever he can', even the TJ.N. in Cylprus, tto sap its power.) will not drive the U.S. into isolationist withdrawal. (But we must be sure that these experi- Setbacks around the world ences. contribute to the formation of a more adequate foreign policy. This, Mr. President, is urgent.
