These pro- grams include the 2% REA loan program, the Farmers Home Administration Emergency Loan Program for farmers hit by natural disasters, the Water Bank program, and the Rural Environmental Assistance Pro- gram. "The purpose of this meet- ing," Price stated, "will be to find out what alternate proce- dures could be worked out to al- low for budget control without destroying those ongoing pro- grams which have proven of great benefit not only to agri- culture, but to the Nation as a whole in the areas of water and soil conservation.,, THE U.S. FLAG still flies at half-mast in honor of the late President Harry S.

This year, there probably are more freshman representatives than in many years past. The freshman representatives are in Austin because Texas voters thought it time to clean house and get some fresh air in the polluted atmosphere which still smells from the last session. This Legislature, with many freshman members, faces pro- blems such as reform, taxes, a new constitution, and hun- dreds upon hundreds of other problems. Our man in Austin is Rep. Phil Cares, a sharp, articulate young lawmaker from Lefors. This will be Phil's second term in office, but his first year to represent Donley County. Phil defeated incumbent Tom Chris- tian of Claude in the Novem- ber general election. The two had been paired in the same district. We've talked a lot with Rep Cates, and have become quite close to the young lawmaker. Phil, so we're convinced, is one of the more dedicated law- makers in Austin. He wants to serve his constituents Phil has mapped out a long- range plan fdr what he callsre- presentation of the people. It's In keeping with Phil's idea of grass-roots representation Cares recently called a meet- ing of interested citizens from various counties of hisdistrict, and talked government over a steak dinner. He got some of their ideas, and told them some of his plans for the upcoming session. From that meeting, Cares and his friends decided to have reg- utar meetings in the district throughout the session, giving the "folks back home" a solid voice in government. Meetings will be held throughout the dis= trict, and these interested in- dividuals will meet regularly to inform Phil of the pace back home, and let Phil inform the home-folks of the pace in Aus- tin. We're extremely enthused about Rep. Cares' plans to in- clude his constituents in deci- sions of government. While many legislators are conferring with their lobbyists about various laws, Phil Cares will be back home conferring with the people who elected him. To us, this is self govern- ment in the true form. We're proud that our representative likes it that waylll The Clarendon Press Box lll0, Clarendon, Texas 79226 The Clarendon Press is published weekly on Thursday, every week of the year, at 204Sonth Kearney in Clarendon, Texas.
