MARIAN AIRPARK NOTES Cliff Hartman returned recently from Lubbock to set up his ag spraying service and plane shop. Hartman formerly operated out of Marian Airpark. But Marian Airpark is not just a base of operations for Wellington fliers. It has a great deal of traffic for an airpark of this size. On May 16, Byron DePauw of Amardllo flew down to see his brother, Jerry, who i® seriously ill in St. Joseph's Hospital. W. S. Hodges of AmariMo, also formerly of Wellington, flew in May 16 to have some THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, May 21, 1964 work done on his plane. Here briefly was Sat F. Beadle of Clarksville, who stopped for gas on his way to Aina- rillo. Others flying in for work are Lynn Hulsey of Wildorado, Charles Phrost and Mr. Dooley of Post. The architect for the new county jail flew in on an inspection trip. Dr. Tom Hunter of San Angelo, who comes frequently to do surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital, was here May 14. Dr. Hunter pilots his own plane, a 4-place Beech Bonanza. One of the most interesting planes at Marian Airpark in recent months was brought down for a check by |Bob Speed of Adrain. It is a 1941 model Beechcraft —an old bi-wing, radial engine plane. Yet it has a top cruising speed of around 200 miles per hour. In fact this model was the first 200-mile plane ever built for civilian craft, according to Cliff Hartman. Speed uses the 23-year-oM plane as a pleasure craft. (How many 23-year-old cars are •maintained by their owners for pleasure vehicles?) Speed owns a flying service at Adrain. Texas state highway spending has grown from $40,200,000 in 1940 to an expected $450,000,000 this year, reports the State Highway Department.

Otis Grill EARLY FAIR SMALL The first; recorded State Fair of Texas was held in Dallas in 1859, and drew an attendance of 2000. Tower Seeks to Ammend Civil Rights Bill Senator John Tower today introduced an amendment to the Civil Rights 'bill that would protect the right of employers to give professionally designed testa to prospective employees. The Tower.amendment grows out of the .Motorola case, where the Illinois FEPC ruled that the company could not administer a professionally developed, .written test because it discriminated against "culturally disadvantaged groups." "Since the case arose," said Tower in remarks (prepared for delivery on the Senate floor with the introduction of the a- mentdment, "it has 'been repeatedly stated by psychologists and testing experts that the test) was not designed to 'select but' any ^ cultural group. It is obvious that tests can and are being written which are (both fair and extremely useful. There is no professional evidence to the contrary. "My amendment is quite simple. It (provides that an employer may give any professionally-developed ability test to any individual seeking employment or 'being considered for promotion or transfer, and then act upon the results of that test). "I have carefully ,provided that employers must give such tests to all concerned individuals without regard to the individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin'. Thus, everybody will get the same fair test; everybody will get the same fair chance." The potato blight of 1846-51 brought a famine in Ireland which caused the death of 1,500,000 Irish and tho immigration of another million.
