Ronnie Lee also attended the conference, and we hope to persuade !hlm and Margl to write some articles for future Issues of The Enterprise in more detailed form on what they learned at the con-ierence. Here's her story: Attorney General's Youth Oonlerence By Margi Oglesby Last Thursday night I stood in the Student Union Building of the University of Texas, surrounded by teenagers from all over Texas, and I asked myself, "Why Am I bere?" I had been asked by Mayor Royce Lee to attend the At-itomey General's Youth Conference, along .with Ronnie Lee frpm Bronte, and Carolyn Parker and Linda Jacoby from Robert Lee. When we left Coke County with our sponsor. County Attorney Frank Dickey, none of us had any idea what the Aittomey General's Youth Conference was about/'We were Just going to be going some-ivhere. • 'Wh«n we reached Austin, we were rushed from speech to film to seminar. We attended six seminars — one each on school dropouts, vocational education, law enforcement, home town youth conferences, community service, and spare time and recreation. We were assailed by a barrage of statistics and we were constantly reminded that these statistics represented people. We learned a lot and we were shocked — shocked that the crime rate is Texas is «rowing five times the rato of the population and seven times In the younger generation. Sunday morning we all went to church. Protestant services were iheld in the l^use of Representa-lives Chamber and Cathi^c §er-vices were h^ in the Senate Contlniifd'on |ack Pagt of Robert Lee, president. Local volunteer firemen planning to attend are Buddy Reed and Cecil Coalson. R. C. Sawyer and Virgil Hend-ley of Robert Lee will attend. The training school is being conducted by the Engineering Extension Service In cooperation with the Texas Education Agency. The school furnishes up-to-date training ;and information on fire protec-'Ùôn and prevention as well as fire-flghtlng technlqu^. ^ addition, -^ip ,. attending tJ^e regular' courses 'at ithe school, volunteer firemen sponsored by Farm Bureau wlU 'also attend itiwo special seminars July 20 and 21 dealing with rural fire protection. Farm Bureau pays $52.50 of the $57.50 tuition for sponsored members of local volunteer fire departments. This covers lodging and meals for the one-week course. Across the state, some 59 F)arm Bureaus are cooperaltlng with the Texas Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company of Waco in helping defray expenses of 140 volunteer firemen in attending the school. Boykln pointed out that Farm Bureau carries on a year-round fire prevention and fire protection program. Joe Smetana, Waco, Texas Farm Bureau safety director, has presented a fire prevention demonstration to 140 schools and 30 clubs In the past year. The TFB Mutual Company also pays $75 to tocal fire departments answering a call outside city limits to fight fires involving property of Farm Bureau Insureds. REVIVAL MEETING PLANNED AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH A revival meeting Is being planned at First Baptist Church In Bronte during the week of Aug. 2-9. More details of ¡the services will be announced In forthcoming issues of The Enterprise. Rev. Murrell Johns, pastor, said that an outstanding evangelistic worker, as well as a singer will be here for the meeting. Jaycees to Sponsor Pet Vaccination Bronte Jaycee Chapter will sponsor a pet vaccination program for this area Saturday, July 18. The work will be done at Mackey's Feed & Supply store here. Only cost to dog and ot\er pet owners will be $1.50 to pay for the vaccine. It will be administered free of charge. A pet vacinaition was sponsored by Coke County 4-H clubs several weeks ago, but several persons in this vicinity have complained that they were not able to take advantage of it due to the short notice given before the day the shots were given. Jaycees hope to be able to get all pets in the area which were missed, innoculated I for rabies. Bronte advanced to this final game by virtue of a win last Saturday night over Coleman, 6-5. Jim Morrow started on the mound for Bronite, and pitched the first two innings. He was relieved by Robbie Cook who finished out the game. Robert Lee also won their game from Wlngate, advancing to tbe final contest with Bronte. Umpires for the Saturday nigbib game will be from the Abilene Official's Association, Lee said. Managers of both teams ithought it would be better to secure out-sildexs to Ictfficiate ithis crucial' battle.
