Fleming, Jr. has been named to head the '80 Spring Bike and Walk-A- Thon Campaign in Trinidad on March 21 at 3:30p.m. William J. Kzrwen, St. Jude's Development Director, made the an- nouncement. "We are proud to find such a dedicated person for this important task," Kirwen said. "St. Jude Children's Research Hospital offers hope to stricken children everywhere that would not be possible without such volunteers. "St. Jude Children's Research t[ospital is the only research center dedicated exclusively to the study and conquest of catastrophic diseases of children. Its work, particularly in leukemia and other childhood cancers, has been internationally acclaimed and cited as a leading example for basic and clinical research. "No one has ever been charged for the benefits provided by St. Jude Hospital," Kirwen said. "And that in- cludes the extremely expensive total medical care provided to children enrolled in its research studies. "Over two-thirds of this year's 20 million dollar operating budget came from public support. Each year we rely on events like this to pay for the following year's costs. "Since Danny Thomas opened this in- stitution in 1962, his dream of conquering the deadly diseases of childhood has continuously been brought closer to reality. Mr. Thomas is still the very active president of this organization and inspires us in this cause," Kirwen said. TP&L negotiates with G. E. The General Electric Company has approached Texas Power & Light Com- pany about the possibility of GE using Units 14 at TP&L's Trinidad Steam Electric Station for training purposes, according to Athens TP&L District Manager Howard Watson. Watson said that the two companies have been discussing this proposal, but that no agreement has been reached. The four TP&L units under con- sideration at Trinidad have been retired and are not being used by the company. GE's proposal calls for a training program for its employees consisting of disassembly, inspection, testing, and reassembly of the turbine generators and associated equipment in those four units. Watson said it is not known at this time when an agreement would be reached or how many people would be involved in the training program should one be started there. i VALENTINE WINNERS In tee Trinidad School feurtE grade class Valentlae box decorating contest were (left to right) Caroll Coleman, Shonda Crocker.
