PLANS ARE READY FOR
MAJOR LAW REVISIONS
Special committees appointed
by the 51st Legislature, to sur-
vey and study the need for new
laws or for revisions of existing
laws, have been at work during
the past year, and are expected
to report on their findings eany
in the new session.
One of the moat controversial
of these reports may be that
dealing with the conservation
and use of water resources. As
Texas has grown rapidly in
population there has developed
an increasing threat of a dwindl-
ing water supply for domestic
and industrial use. The drain on
underground water for irriga-
tion has also become noticeable,
as water level in wells has been
falling off rapidly. How to con-
serve and expand the state’s
water resources, while controll-
ing the use of water so as to
prevent waste, are the subjects
which the committee has been
Another interim committee hag
been considering needed Vevi-
'ions of the state’s election laws.
The courts and the state elec-
tion board have found that in
some, respects the present elec-
tion laws are unworkable.
A long-needed study of the
state’s___ criminal code, with
recon'lmendations for Its re-
vision, has also been under way
bv a committee authorized by the
51st Legislature, and is expected
to have a report ready for the
Proposed revisions of Texas’ in-
surance laws will be made by
another committee authorized by
the last Legislature.

LUCKY PEOPLE DON'T '

Anton—Now it is revealed for
the first time why local people
have the minimum amount of
tooth troiible. An analysis of
the local water supply reveals
that it contains 1.4 parts per
million of sodium fluoride, the
wonder chemical w,hich is now
being added to water supplies
elsewhere as a preventative of
tooth decay. Here, thanks to na-
ture’s bounty, the water already
contains just about the ideal
percentage of fluoride to make
it most effective in preventing
tooth trouble. — -----—.
