PAMPA. TEXAS 66th YKAR Sunday. Jurif 2s. !S7 BILL DUNCAN ...named branch manager VISITING THE CONGRESSMAN-Three visitors to Washington, D.C., stopped by the office of Rep.

Price Asks For Revision Of OSHA Oil, Gas Regulations ... *< •-»_•__ _ * _ * A ,J *l«nt I U a Congressman Bob Price testified before a Congressional committee this week that the regulations of the Occupational .Safety and Health Administration that apply to the oil and gas industry need substantial revision. Speaking in behalf of several thousand small business men in the oil and gas industry, Price testified before the Subcommittee on Environmental Problems Affecting Small Business of the House Select Committee on Small Business. The subcommittee is holding three days of hearings this week on small business and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. Main objection of the small business men in the oil and gas industry is that some of the most costly changes required by the regulations have little if anything to do with employe safety, which was the purpose of the act. Price pointed out five specific examples that would be very expensive to carry out but which would not make conditions any safer for employes. All five examples involve regulations covering either stttrage tanks or welding standards, and all five appear to be directed at the protection of property rather than employe safety. Price stated that the standards which were designed to protect employes from injury were written for manufacturing concerns with concentrations of workers and in many cases are not reasonably applicable to work situations in the oil producing industry. Furthermore, Price stated, the regulations adopted by OSHA ignore standards of long standing in the oil producing industry which have resulted in a history of safe operations.

With 20 attractive girls to pick from, be still didn't dare show romantic Interest in any of them. And this same problem confronts many talented men'. Pass thet "SMF Questionnaire" along! CASEU-518: Rev. Joel, aged 37, is a very successful pastor. "But. Dr. Crane," he telephoned me. "I lost my wife 6 months ago. "She was a wonderful woman and I attribute at least 50 per cent of my success in the pulpit to her charm and popularity with parishioners. "We have 3 children, ranging in age from 5 to 12. who miss her terribly. "Oh, I have a fine housekeeper to look after the youngsters, but she is 60 years of age and thus not close enough to them in interests to replace their mother. "Now, Dr. Crane, 1 am calling you to see if the Scientific Marriage Foundation could introduce me to a prospective wife, between 30 and 35, who would be willing to take over a ready-made family. ••In my parish, I have probably 20 charming women in this age bracket who are either single or young widows. ••But if 1 show special attention to one of them, I'll alienate the other 19. -So I must treat them all alike or produce friction. "Could you please find somebody outside my parish who might make me a congenial mate? "If she were even half as wonderful as my first wife, I'd consider myself most fortunate!" SMF AIDS CUPID It was rather easy to solve Rev. Joel's problem, for the Computer dropped out the names of 3 women in the age bracket he mentioned, who matched him on all 10 basic personality traits. Since men usually restrict us to a radius of only 200 miles, we picked a beautiful music teacher, aged 31, who belonged to the same church denomination. She had a popular personality and taught a teen-age Sunday School Class. Besides, she was an active leader in Girl Scouts, too. So they were introduced by mail. After several exchanges of letters, during which they learned enough about each other to have many fields for conversation, they met in person. Since they were both attractive and harmonized on the 10 basic traits needed to prevent serious post-marital debates, they soon fell in love. Within 6 months they were married. Rev. Joel's children soon took to her as if she were their original mother. She also became a great aid in the church affairs, too, for she played the piano and coached a teen-age chorus.
