City of Howardwick seeking law enforcement The City of Howardwick has found itself with no law en- forcement. And city councilmen are looling into possi- bilities to cure the problem. Bill White, who has served as city marshal for the past year, resigned to accept another position. The duties were given to deputy marshall Carroll Rippetoe. Rippetoe, who has other irons in the fire, the biggest chore being his full-time Job with Sherwood Shores, re- signed his position also, saying that he doesn't have time to do the Job. This has left the city of Howardwick, which surrounds the north side of Greenbelt Lake, with no law enforcement. The city asked the county to provide a deputy for Howard- wick, since the county provides a deputy to patrol Hedley, which is smaller in population than Howardwick. The county will consider this request at its next meeting in August. Mayor M. L. VanArsdel said he has talked to Precinct l Commissioner Gene White about the situation. If the county does not agree to put a deputy at the resort rea, the city ,ould have to find another law enforcement officer. And the Texas Municipal League says that a marshall must be elected, not appointed. Sheriff Frank Lindsay has agreed to patrol the area at Howardwick until permanent arrangements can be made.

The two doctors opened their practice in Claude Monday morning. (Press Photo by LeeAnn Palmer) Doctors arrive The Claude Medical Center was the setting for the wel- coming reception in honor of Drs. Gordon Juan and Tom Chatton last Saturday afternoon. From 1 to 4 p.m. the two former Milwaukee County General Hospital interns met with approximately 300 of their new friends and neigh- bors. The doctors, beth 26, came to the Armstrong County seat through a government project called the National Health Service Corp which is overseen by the department of Health, Education and Welfare. The basic aim of the N.H.S.C. is to provide young gen- eral practitioners for communities throughout the country that do not have quaIified physicians serving them. Al- though the project begins with government financing, it is the proposed intent that the town itself, after a period of time, will begin to supplement the various municipal med- ical needs. Hopefully, after the doctors have served their required 2 years, the community can undertake complete financial control. Both of the doctors hail from large cities, Chatton com- ing from San Jose, Calif. and Juan from Washington D.C. When questioned as to why they chose Claude for their semi-private practice both doctors replied that they "like the small town rural atmosphere. It's people, and the setting will provide both intellectual and vocational challenges unlike those found in more populace'places." "Out of necessity we'll be working closely with the Am- arillo hospitals and will probably send our seriously ill patients to one of the three medical facilities there," stated Chatton. "We've been very pleased and honored with today's turnout and sincerely hope our service to the town of Claude will be met with great satisfaction," said Juan. Six Claude residents will be employed at the medical center. Helping the physicians open the office for patients last Monday morning were Orla Hughes, business director and receptionist; Jewel Chauveaux, registered nurse; Sha- ron Cope, x-ray technician; Maciel Knierim, custodian; C. E. Welch, ground keeper and Donna Detten, reception- ist and summer help. FEEDLOT (Cont'd. from Page 1) Many, many new and modern facilities have been added to the feedlot, along with the most modern equipment. Charles Payne, president of the feedlot organization, founded the facility by digging post holes with his own hands. The feedlot grew from a 2-man operation to an operation which employes 20 persons and handles as high as 20,000 head of cattle. The operation is one of the highlights of Donley County's economy. Complete details of the big grand opening will be given in next week's Clarendon Press.
