In- dustry along the Trinity will be decentralized, and all the new regulations, as well as the vol- untary controls imposed by the industries themselves, will tend toward water quality. Because rain falls on all ex- posed substances, dissolving many pollutants and washing them into the river, we may never achieve the maximum in Trinity water quality. But, we must move forward to reduce it to a minimum. Flood control elements of the program will do much to keep silt out of the stream and its tributaries. Silt is one of the most damaging of pollutants. As we move forward with Tri. nity improvement, let's keep in mind all of its environmental benefits. Water supply for thirs- ty people, flood control, econo- mic growth, recreatioh, low- cost water transportation, pol- lution control, soil conservation, wildlife propagation, job Ol3- portunities, preservation of natural areas along the stream --all of these things add up to better living today and a bright- er tomorrow. Dove Season Opens Fair Dove Season got off to a fair start here Wednesday, opening day. The big test will be the long Labor Day weekend when scores of hunters take to the tanks and fields. Dove hunters are cautioned not to misinterpret the law on the three-shell limit on shot- guns. They must be plugged to three-shells for doves and other migratory birds. The Texas Wildlife Commis- sion removed the three-shell limR on quail and turkey.

(i i -- ] New Bus Law In Effect iiS eason Tickets Season Tickets to the Foot- AUSTIN -- A new State law effective August 30 will no long- er permit Texas motorist to stop and then pass a school bus which is loading or unloading children. CoMnel Wilson E. Speir, di- rector of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the new law. passed by the 62nd Legis- lature, applies in both cities and rural areas and requires motorists moving both direc- tions on the same roadway with a school bus to stop and remain stopped as long as the flashing lights on the bus are in oper- ation. Under current law, which ap- plies cnly in rural areas, driv- ers must stop for a stopped school bus, but may then pro- ceed around it at a speed of not more than I0 miles per hour if safe to do so. The new law will not require those vehicles on another rood- way of a divided highway to stop, and stops are not requir- ed if the bus has stopped in a loading zone of a controlled ac- cess highway where pedestrians are not permRted to cross. Spelt noted that provisions of the new law will be strictly en- forced to afford maximum pro- tection to the school children of Texas. 'I'M ON 24-HOUR DUTY, FOLKS!' ball Games are here and now available at the High School Principal's Office. These tic- kets are $7.50 each. Those who held season tic- kets last year may claim same seats this year if they wish, provided they do so by September 15. The seats will be held until that time, but if not claimed will be sold to someone else. IIIlll Information about student in- surance will be distributed to all students in the Malakoff schools next Tuesday. Each student will be given a form letter from the Heritage Insur- ance Company which includes information about the type of coverage, and cost. It also in- cludes an envelope to be used if parents elect to take out in- surance on their children. The form letter explains the pro- gram, however, I would like to call your attention to these facts about this insurance plan: 1. This insurance is optional, parents may choose to take the insurance or not. 2. There are two pla avail- able: Plan 1 is for 24 hours full time insurance coverage. Plan 2 is at school coverage only. 3. This is a non-duplication method of claims payment. This simply means that the Heritage Insurance Company will pay the first $50.00 of cov- ered expenses without regard to other insurance. However, when surgery or hospitalization is required, payment will be made for the covered expanses above $50.00 that are not re- coverable from other insurance that you may have. 4. Illness of the student is not covered. If you are considering this insurance program please give the form letter your careful consideration noting not only the benefits of the program, but also the limitations and ex- clusions contained in R. If you do have questions please feel free to call the superintendent's office. Insurance Plan New HCJC President For School Opens To Questions QB Elects Officers The Quarterback Club enter- tained its members and other interested parties with a wa- termelon supper last Tuesday night. Officers of the club expressed surprise and appreciation for the large number present. President Kenneth Connor opened the meeting, and then Coach Sam Tanner introduced the varsity football team. Coach Charles Wood then in- troduced the junior varsity. Coach Ashlock introduced the cheerleaders and high school pep squad, after which they gave a demonstration of some of the numbers which will be seen and heard at the coming football games. The sample given testified to the hard work and consecrated effort on the part of the girls at various cheerleading schools attended during the summer months. tn the election of officers for the coming year which follow- ed, Mr. Charles Tapley was elected president; Mrs. Erma Brands Must Be Registered LABOR DAY 1971 We are ahout to ohscrve another three-day weekend. On the last one, Independence Day, 636 persons were killed on the highways. By comparison, during the same week, 29 U. S. sohliers were killed in hanle in Vietnam. The war is ('oming to an end, but there seems to he no end in sight for senseless highway slaughter. Many lives couhl be savl if motorists took the simple precaution of heing certain their automobih.s were func- tioning properly hefnre leaving home. Others couhl he saved hy using the safety behs provided by all manufac- turers. Anti still more eouhl be saved if that "one for the road" was made from a reeipe of three parts of caution mixed with one Imrt of common sense. If you are driving over the Labor Day weekend, we want you to have a pleasant holiday and to see you and your family imek home safely. Drive defensively anti, if in doubt about safety, don't drive.

M. HARVEY President, Henderson County Junior College This is my first opportunity to write to the patrons of Hender- son County Junior College Dis- trict. It has been my practice for the past eight years to keep citizens of the school districts where I have been employed in- formed by a weekly column. The editors of the papers in this college district have been kind enough to permit me to continue this practice. Therefore, you can expect this column to ap- pear each Friday through the Fall and Spring semesters. It is a distinct joy for me to be able to work in the Hender- son County Junior College. I have been on the job since July 1. Already, I have made many friends and have had the op- portunity to observe many fine things. I am impressed with the facilities and the school staff at HCJC. My overall impression is that you have done a good job in choosing board members who in turn have made wise decisions in hiring people to de- velop an excellent program. However, this does not mean that HCJC, along with every other college in the state, does not have problems. You will be hearing about many of these problems in detail through this column this year. Hopefully, there will be some suggested solutions and ideas as to how you might participate in alley- SURPRISE Everyone loves a surprise the Quarterback Club has one in store for the holder of the winning ticket to a large gift-wrapped box contain. ing?? ?

The column will also be used to give factual information a- bout the college program, l will present objective material from the curricula of the var- ious departments, discuss in- novations, as well as financial data about the operation of the school. Then, occasionally, I will give practical advice on pro- blems relating to school and your child. From time to time, I might digress from specific college students to encompass all students. It will be difficult for me to remain aloof from discussing all children, since I have been working in public schools for the past twenty-two years. Too, there are many areas which pertain to students of all ages -- and there are many things you can do for even pre-schoolers which will make a better potential college student of him in later years. I will touch on these from time to time. Then, I invite your inquiries into the college program. If you will write to me with a specific question, I will try to answer it. If you want your letter pub- lished as part of this column, I will try to use it, if it is sign- ed. Of cotwse, I invite your sug- gestions and your criticisms. Your communications, as well as your visits, will be apprec- iated. I recognize that the school belongs to the pc.plc and you have every rlt.h Io b heard, On *,he other hald, you should kn'.)w tmt I n.r,,, I, t'k, what I think s rlgh w:" the students of this institution within the frameork of policy set by the btmrd o[ trustees. When 1 make a nislake, I will admit it, and try again. I hooe you will read the col- umn regularly and that it will be of some benefit to you in un- derstanding and appreciating Henderaon County Junior Col- lege. If. through the column. you do receive such benefit. then my time in writing to you will be well spent. Foreign Missionary To Speak Here The Rev. Cubie Ward, a new- ly approved Assemblies of God missionary to Uruguay, will be guest speaker September 5, 11 a.m., at the First Assembly of God, Malakoff. the Rev. O. B. Cook, pastor, has announced. During their first term of missionary service Mr. Ward and his wife Linda will be ac- tive in Bible school work, litera- ture distribution, evangelism, establishing churches, as well as doing organizational work a- mong the established Assem- blies of Cxi churches. Uruguay, the smallest country REV. CUBIE WARD in South America. is situated on the east coast in the southern half of the continent. Almost all of Uruguay's population of 2.9 million is of European descent. Two thirds 0f'the people are Roman Catholic. Church and state are officially separated, and religious freedom is recog- nized. Protestant missionary activi- ties in Uruguay were started in 1'18, but it was not until 1946 that Assemblies of God mis- sionaries entered the country, Since that time the mission has grown to include 46 national ministers, 120 churches and out- stations, approximately 4,500 members and adherents, and one Bible school. The wards will join eight other Assemblies of God missionaries. Mr. Ward attended Texas A &M University in College Sta- tion, Texas, and the URiversity of Texas at Arlington where he had a major in psychology. Mr. Ward pastored in Hearne, Texas, prior to his approval for foreign service. He also served as minister of education and youth in churches in Dallas and Austin, The public is invited to at- tend the forthcoming service.
