(Press Photo by Will Lowe) Hospital board eyes new budget The Donley County Hospital District Tuesday night set a budget hearing for June 30 to consider a budget for July 1, 1973, to July 1, 1974. The board looked at a proposed budget for $331,389, which is prepared for an open hos- pital with 4,390 patient days in the hospital part of Medical Center. This budget provides for a deficit of$3,582 if an average of 13 patients per day, 365 days, are hos- pitalized. The board plans to prepare a budget considering that the hospital is open, since they hope to open the hospital someday. The board set the tax rate for 65 per $100 valuation, which is the same rate as last year. Stan West, a Wichita Falls auditor was hired to audit the books of the previous year. It was announced that the bylaws of the district will be changed at the next meeting. O. C. Watson was elected vice-president of the board, and Ernest Barbee was elected secretary.

He said that most of it was grading at least 60 pounds per bushel. He said that all farmers thus far have reported yields of better than 20 bushels per acre, and some report yields as high as 40 bushels per acre. The first wheat brought $2.40 a bushel, but White reported the price was down to $2.30 Tuesday. The price had fallen to $2.2 in Memphis. Governor OKs funds for CC vocat Gov. Dolph Brlscoe has signed the appropriations bill which provides funds for Clarendon College's massive vocational- technical expansion next fall. Gov. Briscoe signed the bill over the weekend. Clarendon College president Kenneth D. Vaughan reported this week that plans are well under way for 10 new vocational courses which will be offered with the opening of the fall semester. All courses are fully approved by the Texas Edu- cation Agency and were funded in the appropriations bill. Vaughan and Dean of Students Beryl Clinton spent several weeks in Austin over the past year getting the new programs approved and getting funding for the courses, New vocational-technical courses to be offered include ranch management, farm management, feedlot management, secretary training, secretary accounting, vocational nursing, cosmetology, radio-television servicing, refrigeration and heating. Each of these courses must have from 10 to 12 students be- fore they will be offered. Instructors for all these courses have been lined up by the college, and Vaughan reports that most have outstanding credentials for their positions. None have been hired, how- ever, as all were waiting for Briscoe to slgnthe bill as- suring the college of the programs. Now that the governor has approved the programs for funding, the instructors will be employed. ional school Vaughan said that the Student Activities building is being remodeled to house classrooms and laboratory facilities. The Student A ctivitles facilities will now be moved to the cafeteria building. He said that he is presently talking with equipment companies concerning equipment needed for the 10 ne courses. He estimates that at least 11 additional faculty members will be employed as a result of the new vocational courses, which in itself means a big boost for the community's econ- omy. Vaughan said the program which is attracting the most in- terest now is the rodeo program, an extracurricular acti- vity. The rodeo program will be offered to any student who attends Clarendon College. He said Interest from all over Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico has been expressed in the rodeo sport. He predicted that rodeo alone will probably attract more new faces than any other factor. A full-time rodeo instructor, Jerry Fulton, was hired re- cently to run the program. It wlU be operated from the re- search farm east of Clarendon. Stock will be furnished by the college, and students may bring their own stock if they wish. Vaughan also said that a newly-planned girls basketball pro- gram is drawing much interested. Lloyd Waters, forinerly of New Mexico, has arrived at Clar- endon College to serve as student financial aid officer and high school contact officer. He replaces George Bourns, who will leave at the end of the summer. Plans mounting for July 4th Plans continue to mount this week for Donley County's brat)on. Starting times will be at 8:30 p..,., except for big celebration of the year, the annual Saint's Roost Cele- bration, scheduled for July 4 through 7 this year. Don Thornberry, president of the Outdoor Entertainment Association, the organization which sponsors the annual event, said that box seats are available for the rodeo and that they may be reserved by contacting Frank Wooten at Palmer Motor Company. A box for four performances is $13.50 plus regular admission charge, General admis. sion tickets are $1.50 for adults and 50 for children under 12. A limited number of parking spaces are available a- round the arena. They are $ for all four performances, and may be purchased from James Owens Saddle Shop. A parade will kick off the rodeo on Wednesday, July 4.

Industrial boom seen for area A Dallas industrialist, in an exclusive interview with The Clarendon Press, has predicted that the biggest industrial boom in the state's history could become reality in the Tex- as Panhandle in the very near future, "The environmental groups of the state and national gov- ernments are starting to make it impossible for industry to operate economically in large metropolitan areas," the in- dustrial representative said. He said tests have proven that the Texas Panhandle is one of the few areas in the Southwest where industry might operate nearly pollution-free. "The altitude and wind in the Panhandle are such that debris from smoke-stacks will naturally be blown out of the atmosphere," he said. 'q don't think the environmentalists can even prove air pollution In the Panhandle." The Industrialist said that whtlelndustrialplants will have to increase In number yearly because of the steady in- crease In population worldwide, the ecology rulings will make it nearly Impossible tc operate many of the present factories in metropolitan areas. This means that plantswlll have to be built in record numbers away from the metro- politan areas. He predicted that the Texas Panhandle will get a major part of the industrial movement because of the wind and air conditions here, "The Panhandle may see an industrial boom bigger than any area has ever seen," the Dallas man said. Almost coincidental to this report, a Dallas-based reala- for made inquiries in Donley County towards the end of last week, seeing sites "sultable for industrial locatlons*" These inquiries were made to private individuals who own such sltes and no indication was made as to what type indus- tries these realators represented.
