hearing testimony concerning the progress
and problems involved in treating the
disease in this region.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE RIO GRANDE
In recent weeks, a rash of theft and
burglaries as well as acts of vandalism has
been reported county-wide but especially so
in Rio Grande City. More often than not,
juveniles were involved. These juveniles,
who soon after their arrests, were released
to the custody of their parents only to repeat
over and again their rampage of destruc-
Items of great sentimental value, many
times of little monetary worth were taken -
irreplaceble items belonging to some loved
one who has since passed on.
Batteries and hub caps were removed
from cars from people at their place of
employment. What could not be taken was
demolished needlessly. Windows broken,
batteries battered, tires slashed, store front
windows shattered. WHEN WILL IT STOP?
Private citizens are beginning to buy guns
like never before. They act in fear and out
of a need to protect their family and
property. Will it take a tragic even fatal
incident to shock us to the reality of the
situation around us?
Are the parents of these young people
aware of what their children do? DO THEY
CARE? If my child breaks the window at
my neighbor's home you can be sure I would
be expected to pay for it. If the youngster
was 14-18,1 would expect him to assume his
responsibility to restore it. By that age most
young people should know what is right and
wrong. Conscience and common sense
would dictate the appropriate action.
Teenagers want to be treated as adult; to
decide for themselves to drive; to marry but
not when it comes to the law. f hey demand
the protection provided; Their campaign
continues. Again I ask, WHEN WILL IT
Name withheld by request
Women who change their name-whether
because of marriage, divorce, or other
reasons should be certain to report the
change to Social Security, Jose J. Trevino
Social Security district manager in
McAllen, said recently.
"Employers report earnings under the
name by which their employees are
known," Mr. Trevino said. "If the workers'
names are not listed correctly, their ear-
nings will not be properly recorded, and
they may not receive all the Social Security
credit due them."
A name change should be reported on the
"Application for a Social Security Number
Card, " which may be obtained from any
Social Security office. Proof of identity
under both the old and new names will be
