'WVhat is TP&L doing to offset rising fuel prices?"' To offset the rising prices of natural gas and fuel oil, TP&L and two other electric companies are constructing large generating units which use relatively low cost lignite coal as fuel. Two such units have been in operation since 1972, a third unit was placed in service in 1974 and a fourth in 1975. Five other lignite-fueled units are now under construction and still more are being plhnned. For almost sixty-four years, Texas Power & Light has supplied dependable electric service at a fair price. We're working to keep it that way.

Hall Jr. Asks Election To Congress Sam B. Hall, Jr., Marshall attorney and chairman of the Marshall Board of Educa- tion, announced today he will seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives, District 1. "I believe I can offer the people of this district the mature, objective, hard- working leadership they de- serve in the Congress," Hall said. "Aside from wartime service and college, I have lived in the First District all my life. I think I can better represent th views the district in Washington than the other candidates in the race and look forward to a full and open discussion of the issues during the campaign." Hall was born in Marshall in 1924 and is a graduate of Marshall High School and the College of Marshall, now East Texas Baptist College. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1943 to 1945, then received his law degree from Baylor University in 1948. "We have reached the point in our history, when every. American has to face whether we want a free society or a tightly-regu- lated, centralized system with less and less power in the hands of the people themselves," Hall said. "My experience with the Marshall schools has convinced me more than ever that our national policies must be directed toward less govern- ment interference in our lives." "If the voters of this district want more govern- ment, bigger deficits and higher taxes, I am not their man for Congress. I am certain they would rather have a balanced budget and a government which is responsible and humane without being dictatorial. That is what I would work for as their Congressman." Hall said his record in civic and public affairs demonstrates his ability to work constructively with people of various back- grounds and beliefs. "I am not a professional politician and I have never looked for partisan answers to every issue," he said. "We have had too many political solutions to our problems in this country and it's high time for more statesman- ship." Hall said he believes the federal government has been increasingly less responsive to the views and ideals of the people. "The people are way out in front of the government on their willingness to fight inflation, unemployment and deficit spending," he added. "Unfortunately, too many people in Washington are still playing politics and the nation is floundering because of it." Enrolment Set Pre-registration for kin- dergarten and first grade children will be held next week, April 28-30, at Mala- koff Elementarv School of- fice from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., according to an an- nouncement by principal Don Gordon. All children who will be five vears old bv Sept. 1, 1976," will be eligible to attend kindergarten. Those children who will be 6 vears old by Sept. 1, 1976,'may register for the first grade, Gordon said. If a child is now attending kindergarten class at Malakoff Elemen- tary, it will not be necessary for the child's parents to pre-register the child for the first grade. Gordon said parents are asked to bring the child's birth certificate and health record with them when they come to register. If a parent does not have a birth certificate or health record at this time, it is still necessary that thev come to school and pre-register the child. "If vou know a child who will be five or six years old by Sept. 1, and you think the parents do not know about pre-registration, please tell them about next Wednes- day, Thursday, and Friday's pre-registration," Gordon asked. "We need to pre- register all children who will be in kindergarten or first grade so that we can deter- mine the number of teachers and the amount of materials that will be needed for next year." Parents who live in an- other school district and want their children to attend Malakoff school must com- plete transfer papers by April 30. Transfer papers may be obtained at Malakoff High School and must be returned to the high school office by April 30, Gordon said. If additional information is needed about pre-registra- tion, call Malakoff Elemen- tary office at 489-0313, Gor- don said. Rice Market Seems Uncertain Rice producers in the U.S. are faced with an uncertain market due to record domes- tic and world rice production last year. U.S. rice stocks on August 1 could be five times the level of last summer due to a 14 per cent increase in production last year coupled with an almost 16 per cent decrease in exports due to strong foreign competition. About 45 per cent of last year's U.S. rice crop still has not moved into market chan- nels, and in about three months the 1976 crop will start coming in points out an economist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Ser- vice and the Texas Agricul- tural Experiment Station.
