Are you concerned about
O. C. NORWOOD is for strong action by the government to
halt the dangerous spiral of inflation. Reduction in federal
spending and elimination of federal waste are two steps
which would have an immediate effect.
PURCELL has consistently opposed reductions in federal
spending programs, thus adding to the fire of inflation. In
addition, he has voted 7 times to increase the national debt
limit enabling the federal government to spend even more.
Since Purcell took office in 1962, the national debt has risen
$26 billion, and he has supported each increase.

Peace Corps To
Test Nov. 12
Archer County area residents
interested in putting their skills
to use in developing nations a-
round the world are invited to
take Peace Corps placement test
at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12,
at Room 103, 1114 Commerce St.,
The Peace Corps uses the
placement test to determine how
an applicant can best be utilized
overseas. The test measures gen-
eral aptitude and the ability to
learn a language not education
or achievement. If test scores in-
dicate a limited language-learn-
ing ability, for example, the
Peace Corps tries to place the
applicant in an English-speaking
country. The placement test re-
quires no preparation and is
noncompetitive — an applicant
can neither pass or fail.
The application form, not the
placement test, is the most im-
portant factor in the selection
of volunteers. Persons interested
in serving in the Peace Corps
must fill out an application, if
they have not already done so,
and present it to the tester be-
fore taking the test. Applications
may be obtained from local post
office or from the Peace Corps,
Washington, D C., 20525.
The placement test takes about
an hour and a half.

day, visiting in Snyder, Okla.

thorst School system.

TEXAS IS ON THE MOVE!
In virtually every field of endeavor, our state has made dramatic progress
the past four years under the strong leadership of Governor John Connally.
His administration’s bold, yet sensible programs have helped provide new
opportunity and a better way of life for all our people.
IMPROVED EDUCATION — Since 1963, state investment in higher education has
doubled, and faculty salaries have increased 40%. State support of local
public schools have increased 44% in four years, including a $ipO million
teacher pay raise enacted in 1965. Technical and vocational training pro-
grams have been vastly increased; junior college enrollment doubled during
the current bi-ennium. Special literacy programs for migrant workers and their
children have been expanded. A college student loan fund of $85 million has
been established. And a special Governor's Committee on Public Educa-
tion currently is studying ail facets of elementary and secondary education.
WATER RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT — Long range planning and development
have been given top priority. $100 million in bonds have been issued for
development of needed storage facilities; authorization has been granted to
expand this program to $200 million for the next two years.
CONCERN FOR THE AGED AND NEEDY — Since 1963, assistance to our elderly
has been increased 27%. The Governor’s Committee on Aging is continu-
ally working for the benefit of our senior citizens.
OUTDOOR RECREATION — More than $2 million has been invested in improving
ten of our most attractive state parks during the past two years to provide
additional recreational facilities.
INDUSTRIAL EXPANSION —A record 855 new industrial plants have been estab-
lished the past three years, moving Texas into second place in the nation in
Last year, more than 23,000 new jobs were created in manufacturing alone
— the best year ever for the Texas labor force.
INCREASED TOURISM — More than 12 million tourists visited Texas last year,
adding more than $900 million to the state’s economy, and creating 140,000
new jobs. The state’s tourist advertising program has been sharply expanded.
MENTAL HEALTH AND MENTAL RETARDATION — New emphasis on prevention
of mental illness and mental retardation has been achieved through establish-
ment of new community centers, replacing the former practice of "ware-
housing" patients. Investment for research into causes of mental disorders
has doubled the past, four years.
BETTER HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION—Texas has more farm-to-market roads
than any other state — more than 35,134 miles. We lead the nation in
construction of interstate highways, at a cost 40% below the nation's average.
COMBAT AIR AND, WATER POLLUTION — New legislation for public health, "The
Clear Air Act of Texas," provides state action to combat air pollution. Similar
vigorous action has been initiated to control pollution of Texas streams, bays
NEW CULTURAL GROWTH—The Fine Arts Commission was established In 1965
to nurture the Cultural enrichment of Texans. The state's cultural heritage
will be preserved and portrayed in the state's pavilion at HemisFair *68 in
BUSINESSLIKE ADMINISTRATION — With unprecedented teamwork, our state
government has operated responsibly and efficiently. The Legislature has
finished its work on time in each session. Following a pay-as-you-go policy,
we have maintained a healthy surplus in the general revenue fund without
curtailing essential services.
HEALTHY, GROWING ECONOMY — Business activity rose 11% last year, as
Texas continues one of the brightest growth areas. Employment and income
are at an all-time high, unemployment at an all-time low. Despite increased
responsibilities, our state government costs only $168.78 a year per citizen,
fourth lowest in the nation. No broad-based tax has been enacted the past
four years. Texas still has no personal income or payroll tax, no corporate
income tax, and is one of few remaining states with a limited sales tax of 2%.

JOHN CONNALLY AT THE POLLS NOVEMBER 8TH!

FOR A GREATER TEXAS!
