what is the status quo and I'll have to make a judgment on what to do about it within the near future If this effort should be unsuccessful then 1 would have to take appropriate action and to go into

School Travel Column TV Want Red Cross side related Disaster shelter request questioned TEXAS the Director of Public Information for the Galveston County Red Cross said Saturday that her organization never received any requests from local Civil Defense officials to set up shelters for tims of heavy flooding that hit the area on Wednesday also said that the Red Cross never refused to set up shelters in the area but that by the time the request for such facilities reached her organization the Red Cross was unable to respond because of high waters It was Wednesday night before we received a call from Mr Stapleton Civil Defense Director George claimed By that time we wouldn't get into the area because of the flooding One hour after a request by Stapleton Salvation Army personnel arrived in Texas City with provisions Kline's plans on 80 race up in air SHERIFF By GREG CANTRELL News Staff Writer Galveston County Sheriff Kline said Saturday night he has made no plans concerning the 1980 sheriff's race Showing little effect of a recent battle with emphysema he reacted to reports in a Houston newspaper that he is not going to run for re-election in That's a damn lie I don't know where the hell they got that They didn't get it from me and they didn't get it from the sheriff's he said without missing a breath The Kline said that about the only thing right in the story was that he had just left the hospital after a bout with em- physema I didn't begin my police career in Galveston like the article said I Kline pointed out and whether I may or may not run is a long ways from being decided The long-time Galveston County Sheriff described the article as full of holes They must be mind readers up Kline said justa Kline made a point to note that he didn't even take the Houston newspaper that printed the report he wouldn't run inthe 1980 election One of my relatives brought me the the sheriff explained And I just couldn't believe it What they printed was false and totally uncalled for Kline who has been sheriff in Galveston County since 1960 has been plagued by recent health problems but said Saturday that he was feeling fine and I'll be back at work Monday Regarding Kline's political plans for the future he Whenever 1 a decision the department will put out a release We'll let the people know when the time comes to set up shelters The Salvation Army did a great em- but they have a headquarters there in Texas City We were on the other side of the water Civil Defense Director George Stapleton said Friday that plans for four shelters had been sub- mitted to the Red Cross and that Red Cross personnel had never been in the area to inspect the sites But said that it was not normal procedure for Red Cross officials to inspect shelters that had been designated by Civil Defense The Civil Defense is quite capable of doing disaster relief work pointed out We never received any requests to set up shelters because we were under the impression that the Texas City Civil Defense would take care of any problems that came up According to the Red Cross contacted Texas City four months ago concerning disaster planning But Mr Stapleton told us that the Civil Defense was taking care of Texas City Stapleton could not reached Saturday for comment 1 think we have been unfairly said The Red Cross helped over 500 people Wednesday and Thursday night and we weren't called to help in Texas City until the water was waist high After what happened Wednesday Stapleton said the Salvation Army not the Red Cross would operate emergency shelters in Texas City I think Mr Stapleton reacted out of caused by the urgency of the concluded Weather GALVESTON area 5 p.m and mild through Monday with highs near RO and n low tonight around 70 BOATING and recreation easterly
