Published by Territory Times Puhlihin Co., Malakoff, Texas, vex,00";;Reem ad lib by donna scheibe The recent Chamber of Commerce banquet was a success in every way. Not only was there record atten- dance but the outgoing pres- ident's report was a strong testimony to the progresss of the area--especially as con- cerns the number of new businesses established in Mal- akoff, and those which have expanded operations here dur- ing the past year. It seemed to me, however, that some of the most remark- able achievements in Mala- koff were not mentioned. There was, for instance, no mention of the tremendous effort put forth by the Indust- rial Development Foundation in raising enough money to establish a medical clinic for the community. Response from Malakoff and residents of Trinidad and Cedar Creek Lake subdivisions was over- whelming--an expression of confidence in the future of the area by those who live here.

Neither was there congratu- lations to the city govern- ment who have embarked on an ambitious water and sewer development program which will enable Malakoff to attract more industry and grow in population. The water add sewer improvements are a necessity not just for future growth, but to enhance the quality of living for the present citizenry. Of great importance to all of us is the development of lignite mining from the rich deposits here. Lease money for lignite lands will not only benefit the fortuante owners of the property but will also give a financial boost to the economy of the area. Since much of the land is pasture land, farmers will have anoth- er source of income to offset that lost during the slump in the cattle market. Work is also progressing on the Tennessee Colony Lake and there are substantial rumors that the Trinity River shipping canal will be devel- oped with our area to become a major port. Not too far off is the construction of the lignite fueled power plant to be built by Texas Power & Light Co. close to Malakoff--another big boost to the local economy. All these developments point to a period of tremen- dous growth and an exciting future for all of us. Long time residents have long been convinced that we are living n the best area of Texas--and it's going to get even better during the next five years. Our Chamber has a great story to tell and we hope the present directors will realize the potential of our commun- ity and do their utmost to spread the good word. -,-', m Ki.00 CONC00 WORK Of exp:tence HouseLevelingCARL Foundation Works Si,,sre,,a=, B00IWN Office Hours 8:30 to 4 p,m. 8:30 to 5:30 on Friday editorial Long-Range Picture? The most ballyhooed piece of legislation many years has to be the Child and Family Services Act to be considered by Congress next month. Whether it passes or not -- and odds are against it -- this bill has received unprecedented local and national publicity as a result of an anonymous smear campaign against it. Tlt three-year bill, if approved by the Senate and the House and not vetoed by the President, would set up a nationwide system of day care centers, special services for minority group children, and assistance to families for special needs. The estimated cost would be $150-milliou next year increasing to $1-billion by 1978. There are many valid reasons why this bill should not be approved. It would establish another federal office within the Department ofHealth, Education and Welfare which this bill should not be approved. It would establish another federal office within the Departmemt of Health, Education and Welfare which has already created enough chaos with its administration of the Occupational Health and Safetv Act. It would increase government spending at a time when all the economic experts advise us that we must stop spending Thirdly and most important it would give the fads another tool to interfere in the private lives of individual Americans. Although the bill would set up local organizations to administer the program, it would establish federal guidelines on how the money would be spent and who would benefit. The present waste and ineffidency of the food stamp program should be warning enough to conscientious Americans that federal guidelines cause more problems than they solve. The Child and Family Services Act would not, however, as claimed in an anonymous flyer being circulated everywhere. "take the responsibility of the parents to raise their children and give it solely to the government." At least not right away. Probably you have seen the flyer entitled "Raising Children--Government's or Parents Right?" This newspaper has received a dozen of them, all unsigned, which claim that if the bill was passed, our children would have the right to sue us if we did nut provide an adequate home for them, could refuse to perform any "excesive duties" such as taking out the garbage, and have the right to freedom from religious or political indocriuation. These provisions were written in the Charter of Children's Rights of the National Council of Civil Liberties which was proposed in England, but never adopted. During a debate on a similar bill proposed in 1971, the charter was read on the senate floor and became a part of the Congressional Record. There was never any intent to include any of these provisions in the bill of 1971 or the bill to be considered next month. Washington politicans, with their eye on the November election, are aware that the Child and Family Services Act provides for services that are urgently needed in communities all over the country. Their solicitude for their constituents may be commendable on a short term basis. But what about the long range picture? What happens after the three year period ends? Local governments are faced with an expensive system of day care centers and welfare programs upon which the community has become dependent. The bill is either extended at an even higher cost or the local governments are forced to raise taxes to support the programs, or curtail them altogether. Since Congress is so hell.bent on passing vote-getting legislation this year they should consider a sure fire winner. How about a bill declaring a moratarium on all legislation during an election year that w(uld cst the taxpayers any more money? :.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.1-:;:.:.:.:.;v:.:.....;..v.....:...,.:.:.

The statutory commission for delinquent tax collections is 15 per cent of all delinquent taxes, penalties and interest collected during a given month. Bell said he likes to flne suits four or five at a time so that court dockets do not become too crowded at one given time. "I don't believe in wholesale filing of lawsuits," he said. "I would be ready to file some suits within 30 days," Bell told the trustees. He estimated he would be able to collect 50 per cent of the cases in the past three-year period without a "lot of legal work." "Sixty to sixty-five of my time is,devoted to delinquent tax work," Bell told the trustees. In other action, the school district awarded a contract for fire and extended coverage of the school district's buildings and contents to Jim Harris Insurance for $15,128 payable over a three-year period. Other bidders were Malakoff Insurance Agency at $15,847 and Royall Insurance at $17,401. Malakoff Insurance and Harris bids were for $100 cieducfibie. The aoyall In- surance bid did not include a deductle. Malakoff Insur- ance Agency also bid a $5,000 deductible policy for $13,325. The board accepted the Harris bid and instructed Harris to obtain figures on the- cost of adding a vandalism clause to the policy. The board also approved permitting the City of Mala- koff to drill a test well on school property at one of two sites on the 80-acre tract on Star Harbor Road as the city continues its quest for a possible producing water well. Luther Ellis and Ernest Wil- son, city council members, were present to make the request. Terms of purchase of an acre o{ land, should the city wish to do so were not discussed at the meeting. The trustees voted to refuse use of the school auditorium for a meeting of Log Cabin Estates property owners be- cause they live outside the district. The trustees set a special meeting Tuesday, Jan. 27, primarily to discuss '=person- nel. Estes said 90 per cent of the mting would 'be in executive session. Murray suggested mem- bers of a textbook committee and these were approved by the board. On the committee are E thelyne Sparkman, Lare- do Abron, Rebecca Gartrell,. Charolette Brown and Don Gordon. Only two book char- ges are contemplated this year, Murray said, math and spelling, grades one through six. The board also officially called for the school board election April 3, to fill posi- tions now held by board president Clay Estes and -Homer Ray Trimble.
