TEXAS, 79604, FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 20, 1970-THIRTY-TWO PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS lOc DAILY-25c SUNDAY Auoeiated Preu (ff) By ELUE RUCKER What's Teacher Religion Ratio? Q. What Is the ratio of people employed In the public school lystem whose denomination Is Church of Christ In comparison to those employed who are ol another denomination? A. told that records of church affiliation aren't kept by the school adminis- tration office, because this is not considered In hiringi'-For what it's worth we can tell you where they obtained their degrees and you can draw your own conclusions: ITS teachers received their bachelor's degrees from ACC, 200 from. H-SU, 1M from McMurry and 452 from older colleges and universities. Eighty of the teachers holding master's degrees obtained them at ACC, 145 from H- SU, 52 from McMurry and 166 from other colleges and universities. You could probably say that a majority of the teachers received their bachelor's degrees from colleges of their own religious affiliation. If they attended church colleges. But this wouldn't hold true with master's degrees. It's quite likely that a particular college happened to have the degree plan a teacher was looking for and so he enrolled there without regard to religious affiliation. Q. A couple of months ago on the Smothers Brothers Show, It was an- nounced that If you wonld like a copy of the poem, "The to send a self- addressed stamped envelope to such and such address and they wonld mall you a copy. I sent my envelope and I haven't received my poem yet. I've lost the address In the meantime. Could yon either get me a copy of (he poem or get the address for me so I could write them again? A. We'll get you the poem; in fact you probably have it already. The Smothers Brothers Show has gone off the air, so ABC withdrew the offer for the poem, but the program director for KTXS called ABC for Action Line and the network ran off some photo copies of "The .one of which Is on Its way to your house. Q. In December 1K7, Cooper supposedly lost to Austin Reagan. Toe officials ruled that Jack Mildren was not across the line Into the end zone on the last play. I've heard that those officials later stated publicly that they were wrong, that the victory was really Cooper's. Is this true? Where could I obtain a copy of any statements they made? What are the names and addresses of those officials? A. You'll have a rough limb finding copies of statements that were never made. Sounds like wishful thinking to us. The School Athletic Director and the Assistant Athletic Director both said they've never heard any- thing like that before. Coach Merrill Green said there was absolutely no statement like that made by the game officials; it was a judgment call and the judgment was that we didn't score so we have to accept it. It's all part of football. Green's sure no one ever made such a statement. Sorry, Cougar fans. Q. We need a blinking light or a larger sign which shines brightly day and night, Indicating the left turn off High- way SOonto Stadium Way. We have a lot of traffic here and loo many people (especially out-ol-lowners trying to find ACC) miss this turn completely. A. There are already signs marking the turn-off to ACC, but we talked to Traffic Engineer Bud Taylor about It anyway and he said he'd take a look at It. He feels it might help to place additional street mark- ers there, rather than blinkers. Q. Do yon know where I can find some Information on smokehouse cooking? I'd like some recipes and Information on how to smoke meat I've looked through the cookbooks at the Public Library but didn't find much that was helpful. A. Action Line couldn't find any smoke- house cooking experts, but if you just want to know how to smoke meat, we can sure put you in touch with an expert on that Call C. D. Grissom at 692-6470 after 5 p.m. Action line has sampled his cooking; It's great and he said he'd be willing to share his lecrcla vrith you.

To get thai kind of group you have to aim, and that takes Lime." Xenneth DeVaney, one of .Mrs. Thoresen's lawyers, talked to the jury while beating the floor with a riding crop he said Thoresen used to beat his 34- year-old wife. Said DeVaney: "Either Louise Thoresen Is guilty cf murder in the first de- gree or she is not guilly. We say she is not guilly." Thoresen, said DeVaney, "was a madman, a sick man, a depraved man." The prosecution had argued throughout the trial that Mrs. Thorescn killed her husband for the rest of her husband's estate and the love for another man, and lhat she ended Thoresen's life while he slept. The defense onlcnded Thorc- sen committed repeated attacks on his wife, and toward the end became "like an animal lhat gives warning before it strikes" and had so warned his wife before he was killed. Defense lawyer James Shcp- ard told why his client killed her husband: was standing (here by Ihe bed with two broken ribs and a punctured car drum" (mm a beating administered earlier.

(AP) Red China edged closer to a scat in the United Nations today when the General Assem- bly gave it a majority vote for the first time. It failed only because the 127- nation assembly had approved earlier a U.S.-backcd resolution declaring China representatoin to be an "important question." requiring a two-lhirds majority. Fifty-one nations voted in fa- yor of scaling the Peking gov- ernment, with 49 against and 25 abstaining. This amounted to 51 per cent of those present and voting, or 15 percentage points short of approval. The closest previous vole was in 19K5, when Peking gained a lie. Last year the vole was 48 in favor and 56 46 per cent showing. Peking's showing this year came mainly because it gained five new supporters white nine countries from opposi- tion lo abstentiv. The new supporters were Aus- tria, Canada. Chile, Equatorial Guinea and Italy. Two previous Peking and from "yes" lo but this was not enough to offset the wholesale switching from anti-Peking lo abstention. In this group were Peru, Bo- livia, Malaysia, Luxembourg, 'Ireland, Botswana. Cameroon, Central African Republic and Senegal.

During Ihe debate a substantial majority favored Red China's seating, but not at the cost of expelling the Nation- alist government.

The vote on Ihe "important question" resolution was 66 in favor, 52 against and 7 abstain- ing. Some delegates expressed doubts about supporting this idea in Ihe. future if Peking should attain a majority.

Ag Unit Rescinds Ban on Pesticides a u (I 13 41 41 M X 51 II WASHINGTON Ag- riculture Department, stum- bling over a classic snarl of bu- reaucratic red tape, has res- cinded its recent pesticides ban. At the urging of another fed- cral agency, the department is- sued an order six weeks ago banning the repealed use of pes- ticides on farm crops without 5-pecial permission after Aug. 31, 1971. Then it discovered the prob- lem was under review else- where in the federal bureaucra- cy and that a new environmen- tal agency will inherit Ihe whole mess next month. "We had to placate the Interi- or Department by issuing the original said a USDA of- ficial. "But then it dawned on us that all these questions arc un- der review anyway and will not be completed as soon as expect- ed. We had to get off the hook." Some months ago Interior in- sisted that Agriculture, which handles pesticide registrations, clamp down on some chemicals used more than once a season on a single crop. An order to that effect "as senl lo pesticide makers. Sup- posedly lhal was the end of the matter. Then someone remembered that several hard-core pesti- cides were already under re- view with an eye toward phas- ing out "all but essential uses" of thc.sc chemicals, starting with DDT. Pact to Avoid War Duty Goes Awry-Marine Dies OCEANS1DE, Calif. (AP) Police say two young Marines destined for Vietnam shot each other In a "double shooting pact" to avoid war duly; the plan wenl awry. One of them died. U.

Alter tho ihootlngs, Qulnn drove to a nearby home where he asked for help. When police arrived he took officers lo Chap- pell's body and said a passing motorcyclist had shoi them while they tried lo fix a flat tire on their car.

The mm were aligned ti the Marines 1st flepbcrmem Com- pany and were awaiting orders for war duly In South Vietnam, a base spokesman said. Since the review was taking into account repeated use any- way, the ban actually was a du- plication and unneedcd, said a spokesman. The original notice dated Oct. 9 was made public Nov. 5, at which time officials said a clari- fication would be announced lat- er. Thursday the department an- nounced a new notice dated Nov. 12 had been sent manufac- turers canceling the 1971 dead- line and automatic bans.
