They have become, overnight, part of our capable and energetic labor force. It is much the same country wide. Collingsworth boys and girls want jobs that are real work—not made work. They are eager and they have good job habits. They make a real and valuable contribution to our community during the summer months. Their first venture into the adult world is eye- opening to most boys and girls, and one summer's work can be an education not found in the classroom, by the very nature of the latter. Some of these Collingsworth boys and girls are holding jobs under local business men. Others made their own jobs, and still others are working on farms for their fathers. And to all appearances, all this work leaves them plenty of time for summer fun' We hope, however, that none of these young students likes his job so well he doesn't return to school this fall. That would be an individual tragedy. The fact is ground in deeper each year that education is a must for every boy and girl capable of receiving one. A writer, discussing the high .level of labor in a certain area, using this phrase .. . "the unskilled, those with only high school educations . . . ". These summer jobs are important, but they are not an end. \1 Printed With Your Heading or Blank Heading for Portable and Standard Registers. The Wellington Leader Phone 447-2414 No!

My Nature-informed neighbor says none of the mosquitoes he has ever met seemed in need of any 'better eye or brain development, because of getting along all right with what they had 1 . But he reckons maybe Authority hopes tp learn more and finer points of the technique of living off of brother creatures' blood, since the mosquito is probably the original bureaucrat. NEWS LETTER from Congressman WALTER ROGERS HOPE FOR DOMESTIC SUGAR GROWERS Hearings are expected to begin about June 8 on the U.S. sugar supply question—an issue that shape® up as one of the hottest remaining tio toe decided in this 88th Congress. The House Agriculture Committee will consider bills I and other members of ijhe House have introduced to permit American sugar beet farmers and cane growers the right 'to serve a larger share of the American market. Americans 1 are the world's best sugar customers. All that is required 1 to permit our people to consume the product of thousands upon thousands of new American sugar beet and cane farmei's, processors, and workers is this legislative action: Ileallocation of a major (portion of the 3 million tons of sug'ar formerly imported from Cuba. This quantity of sugar now is being received from offshore—foreign—sugar producers. As I have predicted for many months, the fight will 'be a tough one. The off-shore interests seeking to preserve the status quo include shippers and! refiners, along the East Coast. They will muster powerful stip- port, as they did in 1962 when Congress resolved the same question in their favor. But this year I see signs of growing strength for the position I advocate—one that would correct, to the -benefit of our economic position, a very unfair situation. LAKE McCLELLAN FACILITIES BEING IMPROVED Lake McClellan in southern Gray county is one of the most attractive recreation spots in the Panhandle. For several years I sought a(ptproval for new, needed construction work at the dam to preserve the recreational 'benefits provided by the lake and to protect property below the dam from occasional flash flooding. In my capacity as chairman of the Subcommittee on Irrigation and Reclamation of House Interior Committee, I have long advocated 'that it is just as necessary to maintain existing water projects as to build new ones. I had felt that Lake McClellan was being neglect^ed; recurrent floods proved it. I am glad to say that 'the U.S. Forest Service, which had administered Lake McClellan since 1954, will open bids June 11 in Albuquerque to provide tihe needed work on> the dam and spillway. The project, to be completed 300 days after a contract is awarded, will include construction of a new, enlarged concrete spillway and expending the dam across the existing emergency spillway. Since 1959 the Forest Service has improved facilities at Lake McClellan by adding 49 "family units" (fireplace, tabl and benches), two boat ramps, two miles of improved road, a rehabilitated concession ibuild- ing, 'among others. In the current year, the Forest; Service began a project to add additional picnic tables and fireplaces, sanitai-y facilities, a boat trailer parking area, boat ramips and another mile a'nd a half of roadway. Based on periodic counts by the Forest Service, approximately 110,000 visits are made to the lake each year. When projects planned or underway are completed, the ?oal of upgrading facilities at Lake McClelland will 'be attained. VIM AND VIGOR AVAILABLE 25* EACH Stan Musial, the former St. Louis Cardinals star who is now Consultant to the President) on Physical Fitness, has sent me copies of "Vim" and "Vigor," the two new booklets prepared by the President's Council on Physical Fitjness to promote physical well-being among our young ipeople. "Vigor" presents a complete exercise plan for boys of ages 12-18. "Vim" presents a complete exercise plan for girls in that age bracket. •Mr. Musial said that more than 34,000 copies of the two booklets were sold in the first week after publication — and t)hey maiy rival in popularity the 1963 booklet "Adult Physical Fitness" as besti-sellers. Not .available for free distribution, the booklets may be ord'ered by writing the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing office. "Vim" and "Vigor" are each 25 tf a copy. "Adul't Physical Fitness" costs 35^. Prices are lower for quantity orders. News has leaked down here that there was some congressional commotion about an Army general in Michigan spending $94,500 to fancy uip his office and bathroom. But congressmen, of all ipeo pie, ought) to understand thai an important man needs ele gant environment, to reminc him of the overload he car ties, at times wthen there is nobody around to bump thei heads on the ground before him. Some can get this ego sup port when alone by counting their money, but not generally Generals, so if it< helps him, General ought to be entitled mink-lined tissue and silk-pad ded walls in his 'bathroom. The sad news is being re ported' that us people in th bottom 15 per cent of the in come scale don't live as ihig as the other 85 (per cent. And high level Authority i fixing to cure this unequatoess maybe by taking away enoug from the higher livers and giv ing dt to us to advance us u to the bottom 30 per cent. But my bottom 20 per cen neighbor says this will put a crimp in his psyche 'by violating his civil right) to have somebody around that he can feel like he is better off than WBATHERFORD — Ex-Angelina & Neches River Railway _.,.„,., engine built in 1912, on display af Texas Railroad Museum in Weatherford. NYeatherford is 28 miles west of fort Worth and is the county seat of Parker county. they are. Don't see why all this ruck- usatdon over a new civil rights law, now that many high level moral monitors say that laws we don't like don't need to be obeyed anyhow. In fact, we have goV divine wore?, second-hand', of course, but from some certified spokesmen, that .It's a citizen's Christian duty to disobey any law he thinks is unjust. And, under this new light on Christian responsibility, we probably ought to award gold stars t;o all the brave men who have gone to jail because they feel like the antitank nobbing laws are unlust.

A & M Seeks Way to Feed Undernourished ~" •F.ood for undernourished people of the world may be the outcome of a Texas A&M research effort to clean fish -with chemicals. Financed by a $39,832 grant from the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries, A&M's Chemurgic Research Laboratory is studying methods of cleaning fish with enzymea which "digest" viscera, scales and eyes. Chemical cleaning is faster and cheaper than hand cleaning, allowing species of small fish to be processed economically as foodstuff. Dr. W. W. Meinke, associate professor of chemical engineering, is the research effort leader. DR. P. A.
