The second quarter ended Midlothian 27, Malakoff 24. From then on Midlothian kept a lead over the Tigerettes with two minutes left in the game the score was 48 to 45 in favor of Midlothian. With the score. so close and only a few minutes left in the game, the Tigerettes became excited which resulted in a nuher of mistakes. These mistakes caused Midlothian to gain seven points on fouls and three field goals. The game ended with Midlo- thian as bi-district champs. High pointer for the Tiger- ettes were Gaylor Dawson 2t and Alvirta Barron 19. Towboats Are Coming hasretrtpbelltempting to fill out their own.tried to makemid improve-the ll by FRANKLIN BRADFORD Trinity Improvement Assn. The whole purpose of Trinity River development is to im- prove the environment of the river basin. The wards "envir- enment" and "ecology" were little used in the public press a few years back, when the Trini- ty Master Plan was conceived, yet both elements have been interwoven into its fabric since its vecy inception. There are conflicting opinions of course as to what may com- prise a "better evironment," or even to what extent the "ec- ology" should be left undisturb- ed. But, because people are pretty important, it is quite necessary that their needs be taken into account, at least as long as we hope to maintain some semblance of society as we know it today. A woman wrote us a letter once complaining violently that it should be against the law to cut down a tree -- any tree. We asked her if she was willing to give up her daily newspaper, kitchen towels, paper napkins, and other forest products. She hadn't realized that all these things came from wood -- and trees. Happily, we converted her to the philosophy that true eomervatien of a resource is wise use and management. In her case, the amwer was "tree formic," The Trinity program is wise use and management of the water reso to serve the needs of people. Who would dare say that drir=king water, flood control, .recreation, soil hlstorcal and natural areas, low-cost transportation, job op- portunities and wildlife pttm, gation -- who would say these tllngs downgrade the environ- ment? Any temporary distur- bances, or inconve.ices, from achieving these goals pale into insignificance when measured against the overall benefits. The Trinity River Authority and the Army Coeps of Engi- neers are cooperating whole- heartedly with conservation groups in the design of Trinity projects, including the multi- ple purpose channel. This coop- eration can result in accom- plishing many of the things de- sirable for a better environ- ment. Many good ideas have come forth fxom the conserva- tionists; many of them will be used.

MATTHEWS MAYOR ATTEST: RACHEL RICHARDSON SECRETARY payers were warned today a- gainst misleading newspaper, radio, anti TV ads coavemg the impression that the tax law greatly complicates their 1970 returns. Ellis Cornball, Jr., District Director of Internal Revenue for North Texas, said the ads placed by some commercial preparers of tax returns also picture the Form 1040 as ex- tremely complex so as to dis- courage taxpayers from at- ments in the farm sad in filing procedures in  to nu- merous suggetimm from tax- payers, lawyers, aecouman, and others. In addition, the IRS has this year offered to figure the imome tax and retirement Which simply makes the point that since people must live to- gether, they must talk over their problems and thus seek to achieve what is best for the most. After all, it takes ideas to make a good project -- or a good anything. No one person, group or governmental agency has all the good ideas. We can be very sure that a good idea is always welcome in the halls of engineering, as well as in a lot of other places. Miss Libby H.
