Col. 1 Sheriff Asks More Radio Equipment Taylor County Commissioners Court Monday morning heard request for additional radio equipment for the sheriff's depart- ment and discussed employing E. T. Compere, Jr., to assist In ob- taining highway rights-of-way. Compere agreed to remain on a "stand-by" basis and assist in ev- aluating land and purchasing right- of-way only if the commissioners have difficulty in buying the land. He suggested to the commission- ers court that he be paid on a time basis, only for the time he actually spends working for the county. County Judge Reed Ingalsbe said the county asked Compere to un- t'ertake this work only as insur- ance against the county's not being able to provide rights-of-way on short notice if necessary io meet, requirements of the state highway department. Sheriff Appears Sheriff Ed Powell appeared be- fore the commissioners to request that Taylor County take advant- age of an offer the federal government to pay one-half of the cost of any radio equipment to be used -is law enforcement work which would also be used for civil defense if the need arose. SgL Homer Bailey attended the meeting _to explain any questions about the present radio networks used by the Department of the Public 'Safety and the sheriff's of- fice. Sgt. Bailey and Sheriff Powell said the two agencies use radio systems on different frequencies and their only radio a receiver bought by the county for Bailey's car.so that he can he'ar broadcasts from the sheriff's vde- partment.'The sheriffs department cannot receive radio reports from the department of public safety. Powell recommended that the county buy two additional 2-way radio sets for sheriff's department cars, a receiver for the county jail on.the DPS radio frequency, a.. receiver for Texas '.Hanger Jim Paulk's car on the county freousncy, and either one or two walkie-talkie sets. Cost Estimate Deputy Sheriff Laroy Aruold who is familiar with radio equipment said he would estimate roughly that these items would cost about and that installation would be about J60. The.commissioners also report from C. N..Smith ;and George Buescherj representing the First Southwest Investment Co., as to the procedure the county would follow to issuing time war- rants if this method is chosen for financing a proposed remodeling of -the courthouse. Among several bills approved were to B. D. Evans, to J. D. Hamilton and J301 to Jack Henderson, all for fence posts, and for Mart Parker for mov- ing a barn, all ic connection with improvements to TJ. S. Highway 80. Freedom Party's Plea Dismissed by Judges IT'S 'INTERESTING' Senators Stay Mum On Dulles'Report WASHINGTON key members of Congress heard a re- port from Secretary of State Dulles today on the Berlin Big Four con- ference and came away with such non-committal comments as "in- estlrig" and "informative.'' Beyond that, about all any of them would say to reporters was a statement by Sen. Ferguson (R- Mich) that he feels "certain" the Berlin agreement to have an Asiatic peace conference at Ge- neva in April, with Communist Chinese delegates attending, does not imply diplomatic recognition of Red China. Rayburn in Agreement House Republican Leader Mar- tin (Mass) said Dulles gave a 'very interesting" report but he would not discuss it further. House Democratic Rayburn" Texas) nodded with Martin.
