CANTON -- Plans are under- way to reorganize the Cedar Creek Watershed Association in Kaufman, Van Zandt and Rock- wall Counties, according to Frank Springer, chairman of the board of supervisors of the Kauf- man - Van Zandt - Rockwall Soil Conservation District. At the request of the board of supervisors, 1 o c a 11 y interested people have met and made plans for an organizational meeting to be held in Kaufman on January 21. The primary purpose of this association will be to promote soil and water conservation prac- tices in the watershed. Special emphasis will be given to install- ing a series of floodwater retard- ir~g structures and stream chan-- nel improvement on Cedar Creek and its tributaries. Seven structures have b e e n vacation White House. Dozens of top cabinet officers, leaders and federal agency heads followed German Chancellor Ludwig Erhard and the LBJ Ranch for conferences with President Lyn- don Johnson. Encouraging p r e d i c t i ons of progress toward world peace emerged from the President's in- ternational discussions. The fed- budget and economy were in the domestic talks. Before he departed, W h i t e House sources gave these in- into the President's think- ing: ]:~: He does not feel the U. S. ~:: can drag its feet until after elec- tions this year before pressing for new peace breakthroughs. [ii!i!: He regards civil rights and the $11,000,000 tax cut as leg- islative "musts". Also, he ex- support for the medi- program of aid to the aged. Reducing the budget to save for essential h u m a n needs, including education, is re- garcled by the president as of concern to all Americans. He hopes cost cutting will serve as a pattern for future yeras. Slum clearance and "a home for every American" are seen as of his administration. Some interpreted this as a likely 1964 campaign slogan. Johnson hopes to steadily ira- American preparedness. But he is strong for elimination ~itary obsolencence, partic- old bases and installations retained in the budget for politi- !Iii i eat reason Cor ssional leaders will run t,he/r own legislative show. But the new President wont hesi- tate to ask old congressional friends for what he thinks is Johnson hopes to draw on the of both business and la- render public service. He is concerned about un- and is calling for new solutions. PHISON POPULATION REDUCED For the first time in 18 years, number of prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections decrease.

PRISON SYSTEM INCOME Farm products and livestock produced more than $6,500,000 of the prison system's 1962 in- come, according to the auditor's report just released. O ~ h e r sources were: manufactured pro- ducts, $3,704,616; oil and gas leases, $39,237; miscellaneous, $3,287;167. Report placed total income from farms and farm industries at $10,144,773, with expenses of $14,304,734 for a deficit of $4,- 159,961. Manufacturing operations in- clude license plates, shoes, tex- tiles, clothing and other products. SCHOOL INCOME THREAT Texas. school income will be drastically reduced unless the Federal Power Commission sets an adequate price for gas in the Texas Gulf Coast area and the Hugoton-Anadarko area of the Texas Panhandle( Attorney Gen- eral Carr contends. Carr has filed a petition to intervene in price hearings or- dered by FPC to determine reasonable rates for sale of na- tural gas in areas. Earlier he filed briefs request- ing FPC to set the price of all gas in the Permian Basin area at 121 cents MCF. The FPC staff ]sought a nine cents MCF rate for casinghead gas and 13.'/ cents MCF for gas well gas. Attorney General noted in his brief that Texas levies a '/ per cent occupation tax based on market value of the gas at the. well head to help support state i government. IHe also pointed out that the University of Texas system owns more than 4,700,000 acres of land in the Permian Basin area. Bo- nus money and royalty income from this acreage goes to the permanent school fund for Texas education. More than 18,000,000 acres of state land are involved in the Gulf Coast hearing. HAY FREIGHT HIKE SOUGHT Although the hay shortage has shoved prices up to double the normal, hard pressed Texas ranchers and dairymen may have another cost increase .in sight. Railroad Commission already has been asked by the Livestock Carriers Association of Texas to increase truck rates on hay and cottonseed hulls. A hearing on the application has been set by the Commission's rate division for January 20. In some cases this would mean a rate increase of more than 100 per cent. HIGHER EDUCATION Governor Connally is expected to decide soon whether to desig- nate an existing state agency to administer an estimated $11,600,- 000 worth of Federal grants for college construction facilities in fiscal 1964 or create a new State commission on higher education. Although the Texas Commis- sion on H/gher Edueafion is re- sponsible for the administration of State senior eoUeges and uni- versities, junior colleges---which would get some $2,700,000 of the grant -- come under the juris- diction of the State Board of Ed- ucation. There is no State agency for private colleges. The consh-~tction-aid are used to build these struc- tures, bu~ all easements and right--of-ways must be provided by local people. The flood prea~ention plan pre- pared by the Soil Conservation Service includes 86 structures in Kaufman county, 34 in V a n Zandt C o u n t y and 15 in Rockwall county. S p r i n g e r pointed out that this job is too big for the board of supervisors to accomplish alone and that the speed with which the program is installed will depend largely on the interest and dedicated ef- forts of a large number of local people. private colleges. Connaity's de- cision must meet with the ap- proval of the U. S. Commissioner on Education and be confirmed by Attorney General Cart. A viewpoint on public educa- tion, recently advanced by a sub- committee of the Governor's Committee on Education Beyond the High School, was expressed by the Education Policies Com- mission of the National Educa- tion Association and American Association of School Adminis- trators. Commission recommend- ed that American youths receive two more years of Education System proposed is much like that in operation in California. There any high school graduate may pursue his tuition-free edu- cation in a public junior or two- college. FOR SALE THREE 3-bedroom brick ve- neer dwellings--one with two baths.
