The city of Hereford raised $22,000 to send the ISO piece band to the International conclave. A review of the 1971-72 year of the activities of the Lions Clubs of District 2T-1 reveal that the Lions of District 2T-1 under the direction of Governor Sackett have done many things, carried many projects that have benefited the youth and adults of the Texas Panhandle as well as the youth of a number of foreign countries. Increased activity has also brought about an increase of 10 per cent in the membership of the Lions Clubs of the district. One new Lions Club was also chartered at Nazareth. Plans have been completed to organize a number of new clubs during the coming year. At the present time every town or community with a population of 300 or more has a Lions Club.

At present approximately 20 boys and girls from the Texas Panhandle are on their way to a number of European countries for a six-week visit in the homes of Lions Club families in thos countries. At the same time the same number of foreign teenagers are on their way to the homes of Lions Club families in District 2T-1. Another project of the Lions of District 2T-1 is the Sight Conservation Program. A truck-load of eyeglasses has been collected during the 1971-72 Lion year and are now on enroute to Mexico City to join truck-loads of eyeglasses from every district throughout Lions International. These eyeglasses will be distributed by Lions International to the nearly blind in Mexico and Ethiopia during the coming months.

During the past year the Lions of District 2T-1 raised enough money to build a school for the children of Guatemala in Central America. This excellent program will be continued by the Lions.

FOR CLEANER WATERS NEW YORK (AP) - Contamination of recreational waters will be less with the use of new dock-mounted boat sanitary stations. Almost all states have laws preventing the overboard dumping of sanitary wastes. This means the wastes must be collected and stored on board, until transfer to a disposal facility on shore. To use the units newly designed by the consulting engineering firm of Pope.Evans and Robbins for the National Park Service, the pleasure boater need only dock at the station and connect a hose to a gunwale fitting on his boat. Waste is then transferred from the boat holding tank to the station holding tank by a station pump. Then, contents of the station holding tank are either pumped to a sewage system or, in remote areas, otherwise transported to one. The face of the Indian on the Buffalo Nickel was designed by James E. Fraser by using three Indians as models — Iron Tail, a Sioux warrior; Two Moons, a Cheyenne chief, and John Big Tree, an Onondago chief.
