"Go Forward" was the theme of the meeting that over 300 delegated represent- ing A.C.S. units from all parts of the state attended. "Go Forward" was chosen as the theme to remind volunteers of the steady step by step progress made against cancer in the 32 years of existence. During the meeting volunteers were brought up to date on the latest cancer treatment, patient rehabilita- tion, prevention and cancer through education and Texans Are Better Hosts It appears that Texans are becoming better hosts. ,Or, perhpas, out-of-state visitors are perfecting the ancient technique known as "free loading." That was the main surprise in a quarterly survey of tourist visitors just released by the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation. According to the report, some 20 per cent of auto traveling visitors who came to Texas last spring were conveniently provided bed and board in the homes of friends and relatives. The surwising percentage is five times more of such in- home visiting than was reported in the same period last year. For several years the proportion of visi tors who spent at least a portion of their visit in private homes has consistently averaged only four to five percent. The Department doesn't speculate on the sudden surge of comp'ny comin' last spring-- observing only that any way you slice it. the startling 20 percent amounts to millions of free meals and room nights. However despite the generosity of Texas hosts. last spring's visitors did not pinch pennies on their trips as a whole. The average auto party left $443.46 in the state. :::: :E:! detection.

According to the original conversation the bus and driver would be furnished by the program, funded through ETCOG. The school would privide maintenance and service amounting to $1,500. The bus would provide free transportation for area senior citizens. Under those terms, the arrangement seemed advantageous to the board. In the contract received from ETCOG recently, however, Elsom said there was a definite restriction on the bus being used for any other purpose than transport- ing senior citizens. The board tabled any decision pending clarification from ETCOG. In other business, Elsom said he had been contacted about an oil-gas lease of school property for a 5-year estimated to begin in October, according to a report from the school's architect. football coach and to assist with senior high football. In other personnel matters, Mrs. Pat Williams was employed to work in the cafeteria, and resignations were accepted from Ben Cates and Lillian Henderson. The tax rate for the 1977-78 school year was set by the board of $1.65, up 20 cents from last year. Maintenance and operation will receive $1.35 and 30 cents will be allocated to the interest and sinking fund. The inc:ease in 1he tax rate was the amount committed by the board during the recent bond election. The tax roll for 1978 was approved by report from the board of equalization. Assessed valuation of the school district is $15 million. The board approved participation in the free lunch and reduced price lunch program. Elsom said the legislature had passed a bill requiring school districts to participate in a federal free breakfast program. This would create several problems involving transpor- tation and personnel, Elsom said. However there is a strong statewide movement to have the law repealed during the special session now meeting in Austin. he said. Possible revision of the school calendar was discussed by the board as a result of recent legislative action cutting five days from the school year. Elsom said he needed more information about the reduced number of days and was waiting to hear from the Texas Education Agency. The superintendent suggested the five days be taken off the first month of the year, delaying the opening of school until September, which would cut down on the cost of air conditioning. Other trustees thought the five days should be taken somewhere else because the delayed opening of school would mean students return after the Memorial Day holiday in the' Spring. The superintendent said he would study the schedule and present alternatives to th# period on a lO-acre tract. No board, decision was made.
