Wright did not see the dog at the time the baby was bitten. Terry Furgerson Sorrells, the Wright's baby sitter, called Wright the following day after the baby has been bitten stat- ing that she had seen the dog and that she thought it was un- de" the house at that time. Wright, on the assumption that the dog was under the house, closed all exits except one. At the final exit, he concocted a soph'sticated trap, to be cop,- trolled by a string which would block the dog from under the huose when he dog decided to come out. Around that exit, be cortructed a fence to contain the animal. Trap complete, Wright stood nearby, ready to pull the strng. He had placed an object or animal in the pen as a lure. Two hours late" the dog which had stayed in the dark except for the IRtle pink nose which had appeared frem ed them to confuse Wright pulled the string. The dog was frightened and shaking. "Nice doggie, nice doggie, come to Barneal," he was saying. Oou- vinced he'd made friends he slowly reached to pick up the dog. Doggie sna@s, but misses Wright at the same time jump- ing the pen. Barneal makes an- other grab, but tbe dog hit the grourd and this time doggie takes a bite of Wright's arm, free him self and the foot race was on. Dog has 4 feet, two more than Wright, and he us- ing them to confuse Wright about where he lived. A few days later, as the family worried about possible rabies shots for the baby's safety, the dog ,shows .himself to Wright again, and the foot race was on again. Wright saw the dog almost daily. The town's people helped to search for the dog by giving tips of pets they knew matching the description. Mrs. Wright got a tip, in- vestigated and fotmd the cul- prit. Identity confirmed, the Wrights were advised that the family owning the pet was out of town. A neighbor had been trying to feed the dog, and the sassy pooch not only would not eat, but snapped st the hands trying to feed it. The dogs owners had been gone for a couple of weeks. No one knew hw to locate them. Wright al- ternately watched the dog from his own home grounds and in his neighborhood. Tuesday he mentioned he had his gun with him, but s,emed more concern- ed that the family of the dog was still away than about the possibility that the dog had rabies. "Dr. Norman said 9 days was a safe time to keep watch on him -- and ten days are up now and the dog still looks fine," Wright said. But chasing the dog has become a habit with Wright who does not live in the same neighborhood with it. The little pink nose dog ob- viously enjoys the game with Wright or he wouldn't lure him into a foot race, almost daffy. . 'rbat man who just ran past your house is Baraeal Wright.

Garrison said he couldn't see any immediate major change downward for those who are postponing building plans in hope of cheaper interest rates. He predicted not more than a half a percent drop- if any change at all in the near future.

Knowledge that Texas Governor Preston Smith ant} other powerful top state officials took quick pro- fits in whirlwind games with questionable borrowed money to do with the institutions now charged with stock fraud by the United States Securities and Ex- change Commission has been a tremendous blow to the rank and file Texans' confidence in their state leaders. Removing the wraps from the vast stock mani. pulation scheme which include Sharpestown State Bank of Houston and National Bankers Life Insurance Company of Dallas both controlled by Houston de- veloper Frank W. Sharp, have revealed participation by Governor Preston Smith, House Speaker, Gas Mut- scher, Jr., Rep. W. S. Wheatley, House Floor Speaker Tommy Shannon, State Democratic Chairman E. C. Baum, former Texas Attorney General Waggoner Carr, John Osorio (former top assistant to former governor Allen Shivers) and others. Even Lt. Governor Ben Barnes is indirectly in- volved, according to reports, as he obtained a $60,000 loan from the Dallas Bank and Trust Company which is linked with the SEC suit. Barnes loan was termed a problem loan, meaning not adequately secured. According to allegations in the SEC suit unlimited funds were made available from the Sharpestown Bank to the top state officials to purchase stock in the Na- tional Bankers Life Insurance Company without secur- lty other than the NBL stock. At the same time Sharp, not by conincidence was seeking passage of a banking bill by the legislature which would have been beneficial to both his state banking and insurance interests. The bill passed in the special called legislature without the anticipated opposition from the conservative house. True enough, Governor Smith later vetoed the bill, hut not until he and all those other top brass men had sold their stock in NBL at enormous profits. The stock was sold within about two weeks after the I:ill had passed, but before the Governor's veto of the bill The Governor made $62,500. on the borrowed money invest- ed in NBL stock. All involved have pointed out that there was no- thing illegal about the transactions, although the en- tire loan and purchase of stock on behalf of Governor Smith was handled by his right-hand man Elmer Baum and we are wondering who signed Smith's note. Are we to believe that Governor Smith as head of i multibillion dollar state did not realize that the loan was irregular and no financial statement was sub- mitted, and that at best it was a problem loan. Baum admits he knew the people who told him of the stock investment, and means of purchase, were the same people who were pushing the banking bill. We are wondering many other things. 1. Is it true that these state leaders sold their stock at several dollars per share higher than prices quoted to the general public, as reported in the Dallas News and if that in itself wasn't significant to state business leaders. 2. Now that the sale of NBL stock has been halt- ed by Judge Hughes, the Sharpestown Bank closed by directors, a Jusuit Order is holding that questionable NBL stock creating suffering and inconvenience for them and other many Texans who hold stock, have any of the leaders offered to give the money baek? Remember they had nothing invested. The most of the work involved in making the quick cash was seemingly done by the Sharpestown bank. 3. Was there really an effort made to remove the name of Governor Smith from the Sharpestown re. cords, and if so why -- if there is not suppose to be anything illegal or wrong about the matter? Many other questions could be projected, but space does not permit. Assuming the persons mention ed have not committed any acts that are illegal, cer- tainly such favored treatment which makes their in- See Wrong, page 2 alive on the Navarro College campus this spring as the Art-be.
