Brownwood Bulletin (Newspaper) - November 26, 1974, Brownwood, Texas GOOD AFTERNOON Here is a summary of some of today’s leading news stories: A tv cable service rate increase of 50 cents a month moved a step nearer for Brownwood this morning but a telephone rate increase was delayed at least a month by action of the city council. The annual Howard Payne University sustaining fund got off to a fast start with a kickoff breakfast and donations of more than $30,000 the first day. Brownwood Bulletin Twelve Fagot Today Brownwood, Toxat Tuesday, Novambar 26,1974 Vol. 75, No. 37 Tan Cants Daily Sunday Twonty-flva Canto British push security against new terrorism By PETER EBERT Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) — Troops in armored vehicles surrounded Gatwick Airport south of London today in a step-up of anti- terrorist security following an Arab hijacking of a British airliner and a spate of bombings linked to Irish terrorism. Roadblocks halted all vehicles approaching the airport, Council oks cable hike; tables new phone rates A 50 cent increase in the tv cable rate was approved on first reading but final approval of a telephone rate increase was tabled for a month by members of the Brownwood city council at their semi-monthly meeting this morning. Action on the tv cable rate increase came after council members accepted a committee report on the question, which has been discussed numerous times in the past several months by the council. Approval of the tv cable increase is required on two more readings before it becomes effective. If approved two more times, the system’s 6,049 customers in Brownwood will begin paying $6.25 per month for the cable service. The telephone rate increase for General Telephone, which has already been approved on two readings, was tabled for a month after council members discussed current charges leveled against Southwestern Bell in Texas. In other business council members: ONE—Accepted a bld of $9,400 by San Saba Tractor Co. for two diesel tractors for the parks department; $1,388 by Stephenson Ford Tractor Co. of Comanche for a riding lawn mower for the parks department; and $1,470 by W. A. Neel Associates of West for four air masks for the fire department. TWO—Passed on first reading an ordinance lowering the notice time on nuisance animals from IO days to 3 before action can be taken; and an. ordinance cutting from 120 to IO days notice required on correcting unsanitary conditions in rental property.

FIVE—Approved a com- which handles most package tours to resorts in Europe and America. Motorists had their cars searched for explosives and airport staff had to produce identification before being admitted to the area. A British Airways VC10 jetliner was hijacked at Dubai on the Persian Gulf last Thursday and flown to Tunisia where a West German passenger was killed before the Palestinian hijackers won release from Dutch and Egyptian jails for seven other Palestinians. They then freed the more than 40 other passengers and crew members. At Heathrow, London’s main international airport, police kept a close watch on all flights to and from Belfast in Northern Ireland. The intention was to look for Irish Republican Army guerrillas fleeing the British mainland to escape new emergency measures which ban the IRA and authorize the arrest of all suspected members. The measures follow a public clamor over last week’s bomb blast in Birmingham that killed 19 persons. They are expected to be pushed through Parliament by Thursday. Home Secretary Roy Jenkins described the plan he presented mercial water up requested by on Mond>y as ..mprecedented Union Thanksgiving service is tonight The annual union Thanksgiving service, sponsored by the Brownwood Ministerial Assn. will begin at 7:30 p.m. today at little Zion Baptist Church, 601 Cordell.

EIGHT—Approved a contract adjustment with Forrest and Cotton to meet additional Environmental Protection Agency requirements on the Step I study of Brownwood wastewater treatment plant improvements here. in peacetime Britain.” Besides banning the IRA, it would increase police powers of search, arrest and interrogation and allow expulsion of suspected Irish terrorists. diate: Time bombs exploded in three mail boxes in central London during the evening rush hour Monday, injuring 20 persons. The blasts were "classic IRA tactics to create chaos,” said Cmdr. Robert Huntley, head of Scotland Yard’s bomb squad. Transportation police placed a special watch Tuesday on baggage checkrooms and lost property offices at railroad stations. Plain-clothes detectives traveled on mainline trains. Motorists parking their cars at stations had them searched. Police warned the public to watch for suspicious packages. Central London mailmen agreed to open mailboxes to collect letters but were given strict instructions to close the mailbox doors gently and call the police if they saw any suspicious object inside. Many opposition Conservative lawmakers said the proposed crackdown is not strong enough. They circulated a motion demanding that the death penalty be reinstated for terrorists. Britain ended capital punishment seven years ago. The Conservatives are unlikely to oppose the government’s timetable for the legislation, but they got from the Labor government a promise of an early debate on the death penalty. Jenkins admitted his proposals cut deeply into civil liberties FUND TALK—David Day of Fort Worth, center, newsman for Texas State Network, chats with Dr. Roger Brooks, left, president of Howard Payne University, and B. C. Drinkard, HPU sustaining fund chairman, at the fund’s amma! kickoff breakfast Bds morning.

C Crook takes top slot in grid contest F. C. Crook of 2207 Ave. B, Brownwood, won $5 and first place in the Brownwood Bulletin football contest last week as the gridiron season nears completion.

O. 1188, Brownwood 76801. Brownwood business and professional men Tuesday morning raised $30,962 toward a goal of $125,000 for the annual Brownwood sustaining fund for Howard Payne University, at the annual kickoff breakfast. B. C. Drinkard, this year’s chairman, and president of Citizens National Bank, urged those present to help exceed last year’s total of $115,465 by at least $10,000. Drinkard said Mr. and Mrs. Larue Cox, former Brownwood residents who now live ir Lindale, had sent in their gift tc the fund several days ago. For e number of years the Coxes have been the first donors to the fund. David Day, newsman for the Texas State Network in Fort Worth, speaker at the breakfast, urged the Howard Payne supporters present to not be spectators in the greater university fund drive of which the sustaining fund is the first phase. America has become a nation of sports spectators, as well as political spectators, he said. “This great academic institution founded in 1889 did not become the Howard Payne University that it is today through the work of spectators,” he said. “The great programs at Howard Payne stand as a proclamation that through 85 years the people of Brownwood have been participants to make dreams become realities at Howard Payne,” he said. Drinkard urged all participants in the sustaining fund to increase their gifts and to make them for undesignated causes this year. “Howard Payne is now making great strides in becoming a first-rate university, and we in Brownwood want to help in every way possible,” he said. Dr. Roger L. Brooks, Howard Payne president, thanked the citizens of Brownwood for their help in sustaining funds in the past, and pledged that Howard Payne will become a great university, with the help of Brownwood citizens. Second phase of the greater university fund, 1975 will be the annual fund among alumni, parents and other friends of the university. Scheduled for kickoff next week, it will be under the direction of Ray Ash, president of the Howard Payne University Ex-Students Assn., and pastor of First Baptist Church of Brady. Cold blast heads toward Mid-Texas The season’s chilliest weather yet is expected in Mid-Texas tonight and Wednesday morning, setting the stage for some typically cool Thanksgiving temperatures for the rest of this week. A new blast of cold air was aimed at the area this morning. Meanwhile, extended forecasts call for continued fair skies at least through Saturday. The National Weather Service warned Mid-Texans to look for sub-freezing temperatures tonight and early Wednesday with a forecast low of about 30 degrees. The official low temperature this morning in Brownwood was only 38 although other thermometers hit readings closer to the 32-degree freezing mark at dawn. Monday afternoon’s high reached 55 degrees, probably a typical afternoon reading for the rest of this week. Freezing weather made itself felt over a big chunk of Texas again today, reaching as far south as San Antonio and Lufkin. Readings were about normal for this time of year, however, over the west half of the state, where winds had switched back to the south. Thermometers sank several degrees below normal, meanwhile, in the east half, which was still cooled by north winds. BROWNWOOD AREA— Much cooler tonight and Wednesday with low tonight near 30, high Wednesday near 55. Maximum temperature here Monday 55, overnight low 38. Sunset today 5:31, sunrise Wednesday 7:17. Hard work but no cheers NO CHEERS FOR THEM—Boys be Mud the scene at all Brownwood High School football games are lite managers and trainers who fulfill important roles and according to Principal R. E. Warren are essential to the team. They stay behind the scenes and get little lf any recognition. Here Manager Eddie Phillips, left, and Trainer Greg Fisher check equipment in preparation for Thursday’s bash with the Monahan Loboes. Game time is 2:30 p.m. in Abilene.    (BulletinPhoto) They are never in the limelight, they get no cheers and very little, if any, recognition. These are the boys who are trainers and managers of the Brownwood High School Lion football team. Actually the boys are the "men” behind the scenes. "The managers and trainers are to a coach, like what a secretary is to me,” R. E. Warren, principal of BHS, said. "A certain amount of work has to be done that no one else can do and these boys are just as valuable to a team as a player is,” Warren continued. He noted football players have substitutes but that there are no substitute managers and trainers. "If a manager or a trainer gets sick and is unable to fulfill his duties, then a coach must do the boy’s work,” Warren said. The two trainers for the 1974* 75 school year are Greg Fisher and Randy Dewbre. The managers include Eddie Phillips, Mike Bannister, Scott Ogden, Tommy Benbow and Raymond Beck. Managers and trainers will be at their posts Thursday afternoon when the Brownwood High School Lions and the Monahan Loboes clash in quarterfinal showdown at Shotwell Stadium in Abilene. The trainers help take care of the players and the managers look after the equipment. According to Fisher, trainers must know at a glance the difference between a serious and a superficial injury. They summon help when necessary. "We were taught at trainer school in Waco, how to recognize the minor from the major injuries,” Fisher said. “Most people think when anyone is unconscious the first thing to do is go for the ammonia,” Fisher said. In training the boys learned that use of ammonia when a person is unconscious is the last resort. He explained ammonia is used only after checking symptons and when no other cause can be determined for unconsciousness, then ammonia is used. The trainers are actually first aid workers. The course at Baylor University which Fisher attended the summer before last was an elementary course in athletic training. He said BHS is equipped with advanced first aid equipment. There are stretchers, whirlpool and ultra-sound electrical therapy equipment. “The bucket of water on the field is only in the movies,” Fisher laughed. Injured players receive first aid from the trainers 99 per cent of the time, Fisher said. "Most of them need no further treatment,” he added. "Injured players are treated in the confines of the school.” But he emphasized that when necessary the trainers turn the players over to the team doctor who in turn decides whether* hospitalization is necessary. "The managers have complete charge of all the equipment,” Phillips said. "We take care of footballs to jackets,” he explained. The managers are in charge of loading and unloading the football buses. "We have to see that the uniforms are clean and in first class condition for every game,” Phillips said. "We keep them folded and put up so they can be reached at a moment’s notice. The managers also fill out order forms as to what the players need in line of equipment and uniforms. During a game if a uniform gets torn or something is broken, the repair is done immediately and quickly so the player can get right back in the game,” Phillips said. "All the player has to worry about is the game,” Phillips, said. "We take care of all the details and see that the player has what he needs. A player never loads or unloads the buses. "This comes under oui duties,” Phillips said. Trainers and the managers stand on the sidelines of ever) game with the coaches Although they don’t play on th< field, they sweat out ever] game along with the players However, the managers ant trainers sometimes have to ge to the games the best way the; can, either by private car or b; student bus as they are no always permitted to ride th football buses to and from th game. ;
