glad word on consolidation i- its sheriff who has
held office lor some III years We understand that
in .st of the city officials at Quanah like the ar-
rangement. Occasionally the c will lie a county
( inmissioner or uty alderman who opposes . oy
move, regardless of its merits, if it w.is proposed
alter the dawn of tie 20th century.
The mayors of Kloydada ;.<id l.oekney ptesided
at ttie meeting we attended
BifHEN IT WAS announced th it Secretary of
w w . State Kogers would remain in the Nixon
cabinet for a second term, we wh.i h id been .into i-
pating John C nnally as his successor appeared
to lx* wrong. neverthel *ss we were not convin. ed
of any real change in the Nix.a strategy which
we belie.ed existed
I ast Friday the Wall Street Journal re|xirted
that some who claim to know say Ungers will
depart within six month' he has vowed not
to stay four more years and a widely held
theory is that his departure will make way far
Ci.nnally to ni >ve in .i' Nixon's closest adviser
and — some even speculate — as heir apparent!
1AIE ARE GOING TO awaken some morning
If and disco.er some draste- changes m our
public education sysi in These changes aren't likely
to be popular.
Court tulings, it they stand, will place most
of the responsibility for public s.hool financing <<i
the state. This means lhat we will still be footing
the bill, bill not in the same way Instead of raMng
most school money by taxes <» locil real estate,
we may he paying higher stale taxes throngi the
s des lax or taxes other than ail valorem I ix >s.
AS THIS DEVELOPS, the stale is going to
PM order greater efficiency. If it deems a school
to small to be "economical”, it is going to order
In principle, we oppos- this plan We believe
uch s i i logical prin iples as the need to preserve
the small town should lake priority over some
dhiT considerations \ud when a small town barely
able lo h ild i n as it is is asked to give up its
s' hmd. we ai" d.mng anothe . ,il into its coffin.
We believe t ;e time is not far distant when
the high school students at Happy and Kress will
lie bused In Tuba. While Tuba would be delighted
to h ive them, still our heart is with the smaller
■JUT WHILE MOST of us would oppose the plan,
D particularly Happy and Kress, even they are
no! likely to lie willing t i pay the price of maintain-
ing then own high s h.xil by resorting to HMI per
cent local financing!
IN ADDITION TO these problems, we face many
I more on this eve of Christmas.
We have the energy crisis! They tell us that
we are about to use up our reserves of natural
gas and oil. We can find other ways to create
nergy and fuel — but wh.it about the cost?
\n .ml inobile dealer expressed an opinion the
other day that large ears which burn more gaso-
line that the little ears would he phased out. forcing
the public lo d.ive little ears as a means of stretch-
ing out the supply of oil we have left!
These aren't uleas ml thoughts at this Season,
1 radiii rnally a time for happiness and joy.
I’eihap- our Christmas wish should Ix* for great-
er zeal and dedication in finding answers to our
problems which ap|x*ar so unsurmountable.
