WE ARE sometimes asked, “well
what happen.-d to old so and so when
the grand jury met?" Our policy is to
publish only the names of the persons
indicted by the grand jury. This way
innocent people's names do not appear
in print for further gossip.
This past grand jury “slapped some
wrists" of people who were brought
before it. but we publish only the
names of those indicted.
LAST WEEK WE very accurately
reported that police Lt. Lupe Chavez
and sheriff deputy Abel An/aldua
were considered bv the Democratic
executive committee for certification us
sheriff candidate on the November
General election ballot.
When the executive committee met.
their names were read and we won-
dered at the time why neither man
appeared for an interview bv the
As tt turned out neither man knew
that his name had been submitted. So.
tor the record, neither man applied for
the sheriff's job. but evidently had
some supporters who submitted their
I REPORTED last week that V.
H Harman Jr. has been working with
• nir industrial foundation to get new
industry in Tulia. V. H. is not working
lull time, but is associated with the
first National Bank as director of
marketing and economic development.
We appreciate anything V. H. can
do to help us get more payrolls in our
I W. HODGES, farmer north of
( laytonvillc lost 15 yearlings and thev
were gone for over a month’s time. In
the meantime J. W. Advertised in The
Herald, even offered $500 for informa-
tion about where they might be.
I W. was in The Herald last week
and said a "found" advertisement in
the Elovdada newspaper led to his
by Wendell Tooley
They were found about 17 miles east
of Floydada. near Dougherty. Those
cattle strayed some 55 miles, and we
agree with J. W., he’s mighty for-
tunate in getting them back.
IT'S ALMOST WHEAT PLANTING
TIME and wheat farmers are anxiously
awaiting word from the ASCS about
acreage allotments. The ASCS office
was all set to mail out allotments with
15"'. acreage reductions.
However, the ASCS has received
word from Washington to “hold it". .
. . a new bill in Congress may mean
25" acreage cuts with a set aside
ACTUALLY, wheat acreage should
be cut back about 50% as our grain
storage facilities will be literally run-
ning over by the time corn and grain
sorghum harvest is over.
Something must be done to bring
the supply-demand grain situation into
SINCE THE CITY OF TULIA will be
buying electric power from South-
western Public Service, who now gen-
erated power made with coal fuel
instead of natural gas. we have been
curious about the difference in cost.
We noticed the following compari-
son in the Gilmer. Texas newspaper
this week. Its power company
SWEPCO. says the cost of natural gas
is $.1.75 per million Btus and the coal
from Wyoming cost per illion Btus is
SWI PI O also notes how the price
of natural gas has skyrocketed, as it
was only $0.b4 per million Btus in
This is something our farmers could
agree with. .. they didn't know how
cheap natural gas was ten years ago. .
. . but they know now.
In case you're wondering how much
a Btu is. here's a gtxtd explanation:
But (British thermal unit)—A Btu is a
measurement that represent the
amount of heat energy it takes to raise
the temperature of 1 pound of water
by I degree Fahrenheit.
AS WE MENTION how cheap nat-
ural gas used to be. it's probably a
good time to remind Tulia residents
that they're (and we're) enjoying
cheap drinking water. We’ll know the
difference when the rate increases as
we hixik on to Mackenzie lake water.
It's like the preacher said, "salva-
tion is free, but it costs when we have
to pipe it to you."
DON'T*PART with your illusions.
When they are gone you may still
exist, but you have ceased to love. —

Grain A uger Injures Kelley Haney
Kelley Haney, a 17-year-old Tulia
man. was listed in satisfactory condi-
tion Monday at Central Plains Region-
al Hospital in Plainview following a
Saturday morning grain elevator acci-
dent. He is the son of Peggy May
Haney of New Mexico.
Haney was working at Prairie Grain
Co., about one-half mile south of
Kress, when he slipped and his left
leg became caught in a grain auger
beneath the railroad siding next to the
Marvin Taylor. Manager of Prairie
Grain Co. in Tulia. and John Haney,
the youth's brother, also an employee
of Prairie Grain Co., worked for an
hour to free the trapped man. Rescue
squads from the Kress and Tulia fire
departments were on hand to assist if
Haney was taken by Swisher County
ambulance to Central Plains Regional
Hospital in Plainview where he under-
went emergency surgery to amputate
his left leg at mid-calf.

candidate for the sheriff's post.
Sheriff Garv Gerdcs resigned from
the office, effective Sept. 1. citing low
pay and long hours as his reasons. He

years. His wife, as jailer, drew Jb(X)
