Committee Report Dili OEMINC. NEW MEXICO, FKIDAT. FEBRUARY NUMBER 9 Deming Graphs Dignitaries from surrounding communities have been invited to Deminf to we the movie "The TaH Texan" at the El Rancho theater lite visitors wfll be goeste of the Kingdom of the Son Club, the Commerce Chamber of and the local theaters. Tne movie, filmed by Lippert of Hollywood, was made in the Deming last year. It stan Ltoyd Bridges and Marie Windor (pictured above.) Several local residents have bit parts sad the picture, in its entirety, was filmed in the Deming locale. The movie will play at El Raa- cho tonight sad Saturday and will piay at the drive in Sunday and Monday. Persons who have seen a pre- view of the show say it is a ro- mance-action western made even more appealing by use of familiar to everyone County and vicinity. in Luna Luna County Residents Make Selves Heard on School Consolidation Bill By REP. RAY HUGHES To start with, I would like to discuss a few of the more controversial bills which have come before the Leg- islature this past week. House Bill No. 100, introduced by Representative Montoya from Santa Fe, who is a car sales- man, provided for the examination and licensing of car salesman in this state. 4 I received several telegrams from local dealers opposing this bill because it appeared to be use- less legislation as fair competition would accomplish the same pur- pose. The bill did, however, pass committee snd was brought to the floor fit House on Friday and was by a narrow margin and I veted with the majority. I have discovered that the Sen- ate can reduce pressure on. mem- bers of the House. Aa you probab- ly know, the bill to split Eddy County was a highly contested matter in which members of both houses were put under consider- able pressure but the Senate kill- ed, the measure and thereby saved thf House any consideration of the bill. I was for this particular bill; however, either way I voted would have made enemies. Luna County Interest The next bill is House Bill No. 72 which stirred up considerable excitement in Luna County. The bill, in effect, restricted the consolidation of school districts and this restriction was accomp- lished by a provision which requir- ed 20 per cent of the voters in a school district to sign a petition before any consolidation could be considered by state and local school boards. I received letters from, I be- lieve, the entire adult population of Columbus and from tite Sun- shine School area requesting pas- sage of this measure. There was a similar bin in the Senate (Senate Bill No. 52) and several local people, including Wil- bur Gaines, County School Super- intendent W. D. Berry and Bill Speir came to Santa Fe fov the Senate committee hearing. The night before, I received 67 tele- grams, 32 letters and three long See LUNA COUNTY, Pate Wit To Legalize 'Slots' SANTA FE (SaeciAl) Luna County State Senator Robert S. Palmer told Deming Newspapers vis telephone that Senate Bill No. 110 has received a "do not pass" recommendation from the commit- tee studying the measure. The bill, which would legalise use of slot machines in social, fra- ternal, religious and charitable or- ganisations which could show a charter five yean old, has stirred up much controversy in the state; and it drew opposition from some church goers in Deming and Deming ministers' Association. Only last week ministers' group made public letter written to Sen. in protest of the bill The ministers asserted that "the end never justifies the means" in the matter of use of gambling devices. The bill was introduced by Pal- mer, he said, to assist those organ- izations which are having a hard time financially. Palmer told Deming Newspapers that in deference to the wishes the local group opposed to the measure, he would not ask further consideration of his bill. Previous to the protests from the Deming area, Palmer said he would vote as his constituents wanted him to on the matter. He said if he received no favorable comment on the bill and it came before the Senate, he would be forced to vote against his own piece of legislation. tin, Roy Perkins, Mrs. Otto Klaudt and the Misses Olive and Priaeilla Whitehall drove to Silver City to attend the annual Wash- ington birthday tea given by Jacoh Bennett chapter Daughters of Che American Revolution Sun- day afternoon.
