positions: president of Hondo
Chapter Young Farmers, vice
president and president of Area 7
Young Farmers and selected as
Outstanding Area Officer in 1977,

Task Force for 19 South Texas

ment and By-Laws committees.
"1 attended Tarleton State and
Texas Tech universities from 1962-
"1 volunteered for military duty in
1968 and was selected to serve in
Military Intelligence, Army Secur-
ity Agency branch. I served a tour
of duty in Ethiopia, North Africa.
My duties involved surveilance in
the Mid-East and selected European
countries which required .a Top
Secret clearance from the U.S.
government. During this time I
received an Army Commendation
Medal for exceptional meritorious
achievement in the performance of
duty while assigned as a member of
the U.S. Army Security Agency. I
also received a Certificate of Appre-
ciation from then President Richard
Nixon. I received an honorable

William "Willie" Mund
"1 am a member of the Medina
County Deputy Sheriff Reserve. I
hold a Permanent Reserve License
from the Texas Commission on
Law Enforcement Officer Standards
and Education, along with a
Reserve Deputy Commission from
the Medina County Sheriffs Depart-
ment. I am a member of the
Reserve Law Officers Association
of America. I have completed 145
hours of Law Enforcement studies
at San Antonio College. I am
enrolled in the 440-hour Texas
Peace Officer course at Southwest
Texas Junior College at Uvalde
which, upon completion, will
qualify me to take the state exam
for certification as a Texas Peace
"Having served in all the above
positions, along with my experi-
ence in Military Intelligence and
my training in current and up-to-
date law enforcement studies
qualifies me to be your constable.
"In these positions I had to deal
with budgeting, record keeping,
finance, marketing, advertising,
public relations, supervising and
working with people from all
ethnic, economic and social areas.
"I feel that in modern-day law en-
forcement one must be effective in
public relations as well as in
enforcing the law.
"For these reasons and because 1
am dedicated to active, aggressive,
available, fair and unbiased law en-
forcement, I ask for your vote in
the March 8 Republican Primary."

The local Southwestern Bell Tele-
phone Company manager, Karen
O'Neill, presented the check on
behalf of the Southwestern Bell
Foundation. "Even though life on
social security is a struggle, many

deserve the opportunity to live
independently and to contribute to
the community rather than being
placed in nursing homes," said
Malone said the goal is to make
the Association self-sustaining and
not completely dependant on federal
funding. He urges all businesses
and civic groups to contribute, in
order to insure continuation of
senior citizens' programs in Medina
