BOGATA, RED RIVER COUNTY, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JAN. 12, 1987
ZIP CODE NO. 75417
The Rivcrcrest Rebelettes won
their 18th victory of the season at
Commerce Saturday night, mow
ing down Class AAA Duncanville.'
The game had been setup last
week between the two powerhouses
in their respectiv classes. Duncan-
vill had finished No. 3 in Class
AAA last year at state.
But the Rebelettes jumped the
opponent early in Saturday’s con-
test and Duncanville was never in
Lana Sloan led the Rivercrest at'
tack with 28 points. Glenna Gray-
son had 24 points and Katy Fry
Denise Daniel was high for
Duncanville with 10 points.
Rivercrest’s 18-0 record for the
season places it as one of the top
clubs in the state.
Duncanville took a preliminary
"B” game, 39-18.
Pat Belcher and Dorothy Lor-
ance had five points each for the
A key non-conference pairing is
on tap for the Rebelettes Thurs-
day (tonight) as they travel to
Deport to meet an arch-rival. De-
port, like Rivercrest, is ose of the
state’s top-ranked girls’ teams.
Parcel Post Rates
And Zone Changes
Effective Jan. 15
Use of ZIP CODE will make it
easier to mail packages after Jan.
15,” Postmaster Johnson of Bogata
New1 rates and a new system for
identifying parcel post zones will
go into effect on that date as pro-
vided in legislation signed into
law by President Johnson on Sep-
tember 20, 1966, the Postmaster
pointed out. .
The rate increases will average
about 10 cents a parcel, the Post-
master said. Starting July 1, the
law provides for a series of size
and weight increases on packages
mailed between first-lass offices.
The size and weight increases will
be in five annual steps, the last
coming on July 1, 1967.
Use of ZIP CODE in the recipi-
ent’s address will enable the sender
or a mail clerk to quickly deter-
mine the proper zone, and thus the
rate, for the package. The zones
will be based on the distance a
parcel travels between the 552 sec-
tional centers in the country.
By consulting a simple chart,
which is available at all post of-
fices, the zone can be readily iden-
tified because the first three num-
bers of the ZIP code represent the
sectional center. This replaces a
method in which a directory often
had to be consulted to locate the
proper zone for each of the na-
tion’s 33,000 post, offices.
The new rates will range from
40 cents for a three-pound parcel
destined for local delivery to 60
cents for the same parcel to zone
3 (150 to 300 miles) to $1.05 to
zone 8 (over 1800 miles). The
new zoning method will also apply
to air parcel post, catalogs and
to publishers who pay zone rates
on the advertising portion of their
The Postmaster noted that all
parcels mailed between post of-
fices within the Greenville sec-
tional center will be charged at the
first zone rate. There are 75 post
offices within the Greenville sec-
The Clarksville boys and River-,
crest girls opened their District
15-AA campaigns here Tuesday
night with victories.
The Clarksville squad downed
Rivercrest’s boys, 76-56, and the
Rebelettes took a 56-18 decision
over the Tigerettes.
The Tigers broke into an early
lead against the Rebels and never
slacked up in grabbing the con-
ference win. Clarksville held
36-24 half-time bulge.
Stewart was the big gun for
Clarksville, pumping through 32
points. Skeet Smith had 22 points
for the Rebels.
In the girls game, Rivercrest
was never tested as it moved to its
19th victory of the season. The
hosts were in front 31-10 at half-
Glenna Grayson had 20 points
to pace the Rivercrest scoring and
June Thompson sank 16.
Guards Kay White, Sandy Mc-
Call and Nancy Harper did out-
standing jobs for the Rebelettes.
Brenda Conyers was high for
Clarksville with eight points.
Thursday (tonight) the River-
crest girls travel to Deport for the
big non-conference clash.
The Rivercrest boys host Mt.
Vernon Friday night.
Delinquent Tax List
To Be Compiled
The . Red River County. Commis-
sioners Court has executed a con-
tract with Maurice Love of
Clarksville for the compilation of
a delinquent tax list covering years
from 1939 to 1965. State law re-
quires such a list at two-year in-
tervals, but the consolidated roll
was made necessary by a recent
law forbidding the collection of
taxes delinquent prior to 1939.
Love, a tax specialist approved
by the State Comptroller, has pre-
pared county delinquent lists for a
number of years.

Austin, Tex.—There has been a
lot of swearing going on at the
Seems like almost everyone has
been sworn into an office of one
type or another. We haven’t made
an official count but the number
will approach the 200 mark.
First it was the judges. Then the
top elective officials. Then the 31
State Senators and 150 members
of the House
There’s no doubt about it, there’s
a lot of swearing going on in the
Texas capital. And there’s more
.With what’s upcoming in the
legislative halls, there’s likely to
be a lot of unofficial swearing,
too—a bit stronger in nature. This
is bound to happen when so many
people get together . . . and es-
pecially when arguments, pro and
con, get underway for this and that
It’s expected that some 2,500
measures will hit the hopper before
the law-making session ends.
SHOW IS ON THE ROAD—The
60th sessiaon of the Legislature
now is underway. How long it will
last is anybody’s guess.
Three officials in a position te
be among the state’s best gucsscrs
are predicting it will not continue
beyond the 140-day deadline for
regular session. This despite
mountain of problems to be re-
“We can finish on time,'' com-
mented Speaker of the House Ben
Barnes, as the representatives be-
gan to assemble. And he empha-
sized "I want no special session.”
Gov. John Connally has voiced a
similar view. Lt. Gov. Preston
Smith is even more strongly con-
vinced that special sessions are out
of the question.
“It is not only possible to com-
plete our work in 140 days . . .
! here ought to be no other thought
than finishing by then—and prob-
ably before,” commented Smith.
Lieutenant Governor Smith sug-
gested that legislators could speed
up their work if they abandoned
the usual practice cf four-day
weeks and stayed in session Fri-
days and Saturdays once the bills
start coming out of committees.
Asked if he felt that the lawmak-
ers would do that, the lieutenant
governor asknowledged that
.chances of them doing so are slim.
Smith feels the 60th Legislature
faces no more problems than pre-
AG RULES—Only licensed phy-
sicians or optometrists, not oph-
thalmic dispensers of optic goods,
can legally fit contact lenses, for-
mer Atty. Gen. Waggoner Carr
In a separate opinion, Carr con-
cluded that University of Texas
regents can require participants
in UT postgraduate medical pro-
grams to be holders of doctor of
medicine degrees, excluding doc-
tors of osteopathy.
TOURISM EXHIBIT—A $12,-
000 exhibit has been prepared to
demonstrate the scenic and recre-
ational attractions of Texas. It
will be displayed at major travel
shows across the nation.
Exhibit includes a miniature
waterfall, slides and a diorama de-
picting each of five areas of the
state—East Texas, the Hill Coun-
try, the Rio Grande Valley, the
Gulf Coast and the Trans-Pecos/
Far West Texas region.
Theme of the exhibit is “Texas
. . . For a World of Difference."
FESTIVALS ON PARADE—
Eight top tourist attractions will
be represented in the inaugural

the Palo Duro Canyon Aphitheatre
Festival floats will be supple-
mented by military displays and
INSUARNCE RATES CHANG-
ED—A 7.3 per cent across-the-
board increase is title insurance
rates, the first jump since 1962
has been approved by the State
Board of Insurance.
Increase which became effective
on January 1, is based on a for-
mula that board actuaries worked
out in 1962.
At the same time the Board ap-
proved a general statewide reduc-
tion of four per cent incrop^hail
Reduction was approved when
the Board okayed a filing by the

TLED—Slant-hole oil well lawsuits
involving millions in possible pen-
alties were settled by the stat
against 3fl defendants in the Long
view-Tyler-Kilgore area for $391.-
Settlements were requested b;
defendants after. Mty. Gen. Craw
ford Martin hinted he may not gr
along with the earlier formulas
usrd for disposing of such cases.
Twenty-six other slant-well cases
still are pending.
WATER, WATFR EVER Y-
WHERE—A dramatic plan for
solving West Texas water prob-
lems by transporting huge amounts
across the state from the Mississ-
ippi River and other sources is
undergoing cost studies by the
U.S. Bureau of Reclamation here.
Included ill the survey will be
water transportation from the
Amisted Reservoir near Del Rio
to El Paso and the Trans-Pecos
Bureau expects to have its cost
estimates assembled by May 15.
Its findings will be incorported
into the Texas Water Plan, which
is now being finalized by the Tex-
as Water Development Board.
CROPS TO LET CONTRACTS—

well over $60,000,000 worth of
