Ddors and Windows
In this week’s article we will talk
about doors aod windows. These
are the entry points for any burglar
or thief. .
Most burglars enter because they
have found either a door or a win-
dow that was left unlocked and,
Here are seven recommendations
from the State Board of Insurance.
1- Exterior doors must be solid
core doors that are at least 1 3/8
inches thick and secured by a dead-
bolt lock. Dead-bolt locks must
lock with a minimum bolt throw of
one inch that penetrates a metal
strike plate. If the door secured by
the dead-bolt has breakable glass
within 40 inches of the lock, the
lock must be key-operated from
both sides unless prohibited by life
2- Metal doors must be secured
by dead-bolts as listed above.
3- Double doors meet the specifi-
cations for exterior doors as listed
above, have the inactive door se-
cured by header and threshold bolts
that penetrate metal strike plates,
and in case of glass located within
40 inches of the header and thresh-
old bolts, have the bolts flush-
mounted in the edge of the door.
4- Sliding glass doors need to be
secured by secondary locking de-
vices to prevent lifting and prying.
5- Dutch doors have concealed
flush-bolts locking devices to inter-
lock upper and lower halves and
are secure by the dead-bolt lock as
6- Garage doors are equipped
with key-operated locking devices.
7- Windows are secured by aux-
iliary locking devices. An auxiliary
locking device required by this sec-
tion must include screws, wooden
dowels, pinning devices, and key-
operated locks. In areas in which
life safety codes permit, metal bars
or grating, if mounted to prevent
easy removal, may be substituted
for auxiliary locking devices. Ja-
lousie or louvered windows do not
meet the specifications of this sec-
tion unless they have metal grating
mounted as provided above.

Contract labor meaning changes
Contract labor is taking on a dif-
ferent meaning in Medina County
and Commissioners Court Monday
decided it had better make an effort
to adhere to the new meaning.
Commissioner Marvin Bendele,
who had been asked to contact the
Labor Standards Board, told the
Court that actually contract labor
relates only to those workers who
"are in the business."
Anticipating a ruling on this sub-
ject from the outside auditors, the
Court said Monday it would wait
on that ruling before beginning a
thorough study of any contract la-
bor arrangements it might have.
"The Labor Board will be look-
ing to see if we are going contract
labor to get out of paying over-
time," Bendele said.
Charges in these areas would
probably place those persons work-
ing on contracts as parttimer em-
ployees. This action would require
the county matching FICA funds
and giving employees those bene-
fits to which they might be entitled.

Slides, filmstrips and exhibits of

preserving such areas to keep them

Ward and a group of fellow mem-
bers of the archeology society met
witn small groups and individuals

facts brought by members and
The highlight of the business
portion of the meeting was the
presentation of the CCHA Preser-
vation Award to Dr. and Mrs.
Miles Hutson of Hondo. Mrs. Hut-
son accepted the avvard for the res-
toration and preservation of their
country home, the former home of
Mr. and Mrs. Vemon King in
Hondo. In her presentation, Mary

man, related information about the

cate Mrs. Hutson told of the trials
and tribulations encountered in
moving and restoring a structure

home now. "

rines. This was an original creation
