We get the benefits and we are respoble for it. We elect nine of our feUow-citizens to act in our be- half. Normally, we sit quietly until these nine people do something we don't like, and then we fire up the tar pots and start asking if anyone has seen grandma's feather bed lately. This time, let's take our responsibility seriously. Let's talk these things over, think them out, and give our elected repre- sentatives some help. The decisions made in the next few months will determine Clarendon College's future posi- tion. The oldest institution of higher learning in the Panhandle has a long proud past; we can cling to that past and fade into oblivion with it, or we can use the oppor- tunity presented to us by SACS to launch ourselves into the new mil- lennium with all flags flying. Do you have any ideas as to what the qualifications for the new President should be? Are there programs you'd like to see the Col- lege adopt? Let's make use of the Letters Section of The C/arendon News to give the Regents the benefit of our collective ex- perience. 1'!I start the dialogue. Just suppose we set the new President's compensation on a sys- tem of incentives. He or she would get a base pay of fairly modest proportions. Every year the enroll- ment grows by a certain percent- age, the Ires gets a bonus. Raising money is a prime responsibility;, give the President a commission. Pray that he/she becomes the richest person in Donley County. Do you like myidea? Hate It? Have a better one? Write to the editor! Sincerely, Beryl C.

License Gets New Iamk :so; tore 1 Texas driver licenses will have a new look beginning early in 1995. now "=The new licenses will be more convenient for Texas' 15.6 million sorliceuse and identification card holders and will provide more security el-features, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. talkl "We're always looking for new ways to prevent criminals from using ;e w drivers licenses for illegal purposes," said DIS Director Col. James R. care4"dson. "The new licenses and identification cards will be harder to forge indeOr alter. A real bonus is that the same technology that makes the new - lliceuses more secure will greatly reduce the time it takes to get the card into Ithz hands of the owner." The DPS will begin phasing in the new technology in January. New llicenses will be available in all 243 towns and cities with driver license offices ]later in the year. | Current licenses need not be replaced. They will continue to be valid ten v antil their expiration date. Fees will remain the same. "t The new licenses will have a look similar to a credit card, but will be easy to distinguish because of colorful images of the aital iman toch- aology also will enhance the licensees' photographs. new format will include a magnetic stripe, a bar code and a special laminate to mamiTe security," said Judy Sibert, DPS project manager for the digital image driver license system. "Licenses issued for Temms under the age of 21 will look different from regular licenses, making it easier for merchants to determine a customer's age." The application and renewal procedures will change very little. Applicant's thumb prints will be taken using imaging equipment, eliminat- ing the mess if ink. Photos will be taken with video cameras linked to computers, allowing technicians to better assure a good likeness of the applicant. "A real benefit to licensees is that the new system will allow us to get the license in their hands in a fewer than 10 days, instead of the current four sixweeks," Sibert said. "And as merchants adopt equipment capable of reading the magnetic stripe, these new cards will speed up check accep tance." Sibert said another security feature will be a laminate embossed with the word "Terns" in tines on the front. The "Texas" will glow ultraviolet hL Driven with good records will continue to be able to renew for a uu:ond four-year period without returning to a license office. The last major change in licenses was made in 1968, when pictures were added and the use of paper licenses was discontinued except for temporary licenses, learners' permits and certain special needs licenses.
