Also, I know that the erl behind the Trinity pro- i hven Points F.O.E. Hosts hpper Tonight gram are not easily discourag- ed. "Overall, the Trinity River projects seem to be fairly well funded in fiscal 1972. Yet the great tragedy, I am quick to a- gree, is there isn't a dime in sight for the badly needed Lake- view Reservoir, which was authorized by the Congress in 1965, and the $1 million listed for the Trinity waterway design is less than half what the Corps of Enginneers actually needs. "Texans have been waiting for more than 40 years on the waterway, so, as we continue to wait, perhaps we ,can make good use of the time. There are things people in the river basin can do to 'get ready' for the actual start of construction. A federal project of this magni- tude requires immense prepara- tion at the local level. I feel con- fident that the citizens of the Trinity Basin are ready and willing to do whatever they may be called upon to do. They face an opportunity of a lifetime. They have demonstrated their responsibility in the past. In fact, local investments in Tri- nity development are already substantial, and I am sure they don't wish to turn back now. "The Trinity program to me will be an environmental bless- ing for a great section of our state. Because of people we must have changes. We are in- clined to resist changes, often without knowing whether they'll be good or bad. But the Trinity River project -- the entire Tri- nity Master Plan -- is based on a grass-roots concept of 'best for the mo3t.' "Surely the environment is good if it provides water for thirsty people, flood control, low-cost water transportation, great recreational opportunity, soil conservation, job opportuni- ties, wildlife progagation, and preservation of natural areas along the stream. The Trinity program is accomplishing this. While there will be some scars on the horizon as the program is carried out, there will be a complete healing in the due course of time, and our grand- children will thank us for the fore sight that insured them a better life. "Let's continue the fight for the Trinity, a river whose basin links two great metro areas -- Dallas-Fort Worth and Hous- ton, and which will soon be call- ed on to provide the water re- quired by nearly half of the state's total population."

Old Malakoff Landmark To Get Good Home The old familiar sight The Malakoff Depot soon will join the rank and file of the rest of The Steam Age era. The Old Depot was purchased at an undisclosed figure by Tex- as Clay Industries Division of Malakoff. Their plans are not complete as to what they are going to do with it. However, the News was assured it would have a good home. When the pace of living was much slower than today, the Old Depot played a part in mail and freight delivery many as four times daily. It once had waiting rooms for passengers and tickets to all points in the nation served by railways. Sometimes 40 or more people would leave from this station going to football games and Tex- as State Fair, etc. In World War II many home- town servicemen departed from the Old Depot going to training centers and overseas. The Old Depot is scheduled to be moved in the very near fu- ture. HCJC President Speaks To Be Moved Soon Vocational Training Needs Supt. Moates Gives Bus Transportation T.E.A. Rules them with safe and dependable helping us with the above men- transportation. I would like to tioned safety regulations, :we ask all students and parents to can provide the type of program help us provide safe transpor- our students need and deserve. by Dr. T. M. HARVEY PRESIDENT HENDERSON COUNTY JUNIOR COLLEGE With the openina of school, them have been some changes in the curriculum d Henderson County Junior College. These changes have been in keeping with the concept that a Com- munity College should develop programs geared to the needs of all the people, and not just a select few. Let me explain. Not too many years ago, a col- lege education was considered out of the reach of rnt people. Then more recently, there has been a feeling that everyone should attend a four year college program. Now, we are beginning to realize that many are mo happy with a one or two year technical or vocational program. Thus, we and other Community Colleges are planning and im- plementing programs on a vo- cational and technical level to complement the university parallel curriculum. One change for this Fall semester is the second year of auto mechanics. You don't have to he an authority to know that there is a shortage of mecha- nics. You could run a survey in almost any town in the United States and find immediate open- ings at good pay for accomplish- ed mechanics. A student corn- ing the two year program at HCJC shouM be in a position to command a good job. In fact, to be perfectly truthful, he will make more money than many students going into other fields after four years of college. Then, we are expending our welding program this year. You may remember that we began this vocational oom'se last year. Mr. Sumner, the instructor in welding, told me just this morn- ing that some of his students from the past year have been offered employment, after a series of tests, at $5.50 per hour with Brown and Root Construc- tion Co. My mental arithmetic tells me that this would be $11,- 440. yearly for 40 hours per week. However, these workers are currently getting 60 hours per week making a yearly sal- ary of $20,020. Not bad for 19- year-olds, one year out of high school. There are needs for so many eraftmen in our world today that the opportunities for en- larging school programs to train young men and women is limitless. And, with much of the population of the United States on welfare, a simple solution seems to be simply to train peo- ple and put them to work. You can be assured that Hen- derson Omnty Junior College We will strive to keep all buses in good mechanical condition so that we will have as few break downs as possible. However, break downs do happen, and your patience and ulerstaud- ing will be appreciated during these times. I would like to mention one other phase of school activities. There are three school auxiliary tation for our students by ob- serving the following safety reg- ulations: 1. Remain seated while the bus is moving. 2. Please keep bands, arms and heads inside the bus at all times. 3. Be ready at your pick-up point on time. This way everyone will know when the bus will come by and a organizations being organized dependable time schedule at this time. It's still not too may be established, late to join these organizations 4. Talking is okay, but help and lend your talent and sup- eleminate the loud noises port: the Band Booster Club, so the the driver may con- the Quarterback Club and the centrate on his job of getting you l-me and to school safely. 5. Never open the emergency door, except when needed for an emergency. 6. Drinks and ice cream should not be taken on the buses. I know that you want a good Malakoff Elementary PTA. When you join these groups you are not only supporting these individual students and groups but you are indirectly supporting the total educational program for our schools and our children. The bt invest- merit you can make in your time is in the young people of our community. 0fl might meet the needs of its patrons. If there are courses you are particularly interested in, do not hesitate to call us, or come by to discuss them. If you do not know what courmm are now offered, this informa- tion is readily available to you. From time to time, I will dis- cuss some of these courses in detail in this column. In this way I can better inform you a- bout the opportunities we are trying to offer the citizens of this area. I hope you will kee in mira that this is your college. You should be interested in every aspect of the program. We will try to make you welcome if you will visit us -- and will try to have an answer for any ques- tion you might ask about the college. We will send informa- tion to your public schools, civic clubs or other organiza- tions through programs or other means. We are interested in serving you. Opens At Ir. Varsity ALCOHOL and its effects on drivers is the subject under study as a team of professional race car drivers take on enough alcohol to reach .10 percent blood alcohol concentration and then tackle a driving skills course. The test was sponsored by the San Antonio Association of Insurance Agents and conducted at Pan American Speedway by the Southwest Research Institute. Officials say the test is a graphic demonstration of the fact that .10 percent blood alcohol concentration is a level at which even professional drivers are unable to handle a motor vehicle safely. Probable Tiger line-up, ac- cording to Coach Sam Tanner, will be: On Defensive- Right Guard, Thomas Dawson; Right Outside Linebacker, Samuel Ramsey; Right End, Rickie Thomas; Left Guard, David Tapley; Left Outside Lineback- er, Paul Green; Left End Clar- ence "Bongo" Johnson; Right Inside Linebacker, Rickie Arm- strong; 'Safety, Jessie Green; Right Halfback, Bonnie John- son, Left Halfback, Garvin Crossley.

One of the most difficult areas of school business to keep operating is the school trans- portation program. The Mala- koff Independent School Dis- tric-t has six bus routes. The State reimburses the school dis- trict the funds for the operation and maintenance of those six approved routes. In discussing our bus routes, it is important to understand that the State (Texas Education Agency) must approve each bus route according to State standards and regulations. Last year the Texas Education Agency sent a consultant from the Tran- sportation Division to approve our bus rtes. The consultant drove over all our routes and made some suggestions that would help improve our bus service and that would meet State regulations. The school must comply with certain State regulations in or- der to receive money to operate its buses. In turn, the school has certain regulations that it ask students to comply with Games are scheduled September II, Kemp, September 16, Mabank, September 23, Kerens, September 30, Canton, Octcber 7, Brownboro, October 14, Wills Po'm2, October 21, Kaufman, October 28, Van, there; November II, Grand there. therei / tho" iI Dale Venable, Johnny Hughes Joe Farrell, David Hurd, Carson, Jimmy Racker, ford, Robinson, Carl Larry Avant, Roy Lee W/yman Jackson, David Jimmy Jackson, Vernon and C.
