Lockhart Post Register (Newspaper) - September 22, 1960, Lockhart, Texas 10c CocMjart |Jost-Kc - NEW YORK-In ever-growing numbers, women in Caldwell county are becoming wage earners. More and more of them, married women especially, are finding enough time away from their home responsibililies to permit them to take jobs in offices, stores and factories. With some of them, either the desire for better living or the need to work is the compelling force. With others, it is a flight from boredom or from inactivity that is involved. The same trend, in varying degrees, has been observed in most other parts of the country. A recent report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals a total of 22,736,000 women in the labor force last year as against 17,795,000 counted nine years previously. Adapting to Caldwell county the results of the recent national and sectional survey conducted by the Commerce and Labor Departments, it appears that 29.5 per cent of all women locally, over the age of 14, are in the labor force. This represent an increase over the 22.3 per cent of them so-listed in 1950, when the prior census was taken. At that time 1,571 women were employed or seeking employment. The 29.5 per cent of working women locally compares with the United States average of 35.2 per cent and the 34 per cent in the State of Texas. An outstanding development throughout the nation, revealed by the survey, is the new attitude of married woman toward work outside the home. Nearly one out of three wives over age 35 is in the work force now as against only one in eight in 1940. An explanation is given by Dr. Henry David, director of the National Manpower Council. He says that women are marrying earlier, having children earlier and are completing their families at an earlier age. Half the women in the United States, he points out, have their last child when they are 26. They are 32 when the child is ready for school and they are free, after that time, to take outside jobs. In Caldwell county, women constitute a larger proportion of people in jobs than ever before. Since 199", when the census tabulation revealed that 23.8 per cent of all rise being 4.8 per cent. Daylight Nets Big Burglary Haul Daring burglars took over $900 in food and clothing from the Conrad Ohlendorf home in broad daylight Sunday afternoon about 4:30 p.m. and got away. The only clue of who they are lies In a maroon station wagon seen at the home at the time of the burglary by Mrs. Stanley Balser, a neighbor. There was no theft insurance. The burglary was not reported until about 6 p.m. when Mrs. Balser asked the Ohlendorfs, who were fishing on a tank on their place, who their visitors were earlier. Not knowing of any visitors the Ohlendorfs went to the house to find the door of the deep freeze open and most of the food gone. According to Max Ohlendorf, Mr. and Mrs. Ohlendorf and their children left the house about 4 p.m. to go fishing. About 4:30 Mrs. Balser saw a maroon station wagon parked behind the house and a man and woman there, but since ths Ohlendorfs have company regularly she did not 6ay anything at the time. The car was gone in only a few minutes. Reported among the stolen things were all of Mrs. Ohlendorfs clothes, Mr, Ohlendorfs shirts, an electric sewing machine, electric fan, half a calf which was In the deep freeze, a .22 automatic rifle, two pieces of luggage, all be children's good clothes, at. electric saw, two billfolds, a watch, most of Mrs. Ohlendorfs jewelry, and a rack which had some toy guns on it. Besides the burglary, police have had a forgery in which a man passed a check lor S21 at Kreuz Market Friday afternoon with the signature of V/. H. Anton on it. The check was a forgery and Juan Castillo is in jail charged with forgecry and passing. This case, too, had an unusual angle in that the man charged with the forgery was arrested in the courthouse. It seems that J.R. Cheatham had seen a man practicing writing Anton's signature on a piece of paper In the post office Monday following the pass- ing of the check at Kreuz. He , mentioned it to Ross Andrews who passed the information on. Monday, Cheatham was telling about this unusual thing when he spotted Castillo in front of the courthouse and officers were called. Castillo is also alleged to have passed a check about four weeks ago at Davis' with the name Joe Lempa to it. , Sheriff Desmond Reed also reports the arrest of Lonnie Gray in Lamesa, after Gray turned himself In to officers in connection with the assault and robbery of Frank J. Pritchett in Martind.-sle early this month. Gray is in the county jail awaiting posting of bond. Sheriff Reed also says that a jury has been called for September 26, as five criminal cases are to be brought before Judge J. R. Fuchs. San Marcos derdog. But they won't be playing dead, as the-Lions haven't beaten the Rattlers since the San Marcos team turned into AAA in 1956; and they would like nothing better than to hand the Rattlers their second straight loss of the season, as the home team lost all but one starter from their 1959 aggregation which was district champion of 13AAA. Coach Goodnight's boys showed their metal two weeks ago, however, in giving the Gonzales Apaches a real battle before bowing 22-28 in losing their first regular season game in over two years. A surprise to both leams was the showing of senior quarterback Eddie Contreras, a 132 pound squadman, who completed 10 of 17 passes ngainst the Apaches and had a hand in every Rattler scoring play. Gpnreras wasn' even counted to be one of the two top men under in the T, but when they failed to come out this fall, he was the man of the hour. Along with Contreras in the backfield are 171 pound fullback Bill Williams 155 pound Jerry Glosson, the best runner and one of Contrera's chief targets, 150 pound Joe Besinaiz. The lone starter from last year's San Marcos powerhouse is left tackle Jimmy Kasch, a 200 pounder, who was felt in the Lion back-field much of the time last year. He has good inside help from Johnny McBride (177), Ictt guard; John Hughson (217), center; Larry French (154*�, right guard; Lynn Spivey (194), right tackle; and promising help in ends Frank Magnuson (161), and Allen Porter (164). Scout reports say that the Rattlers are primarily a power team again from the straight t or floater t, but that they like to pass more this year. A week's work should have given the Rattlers a chance to get over any injuries and iron out any faults which Coach Goodnight has spotted, and the Rattlers will be ready for he Lions, no doubt. But Coach Guss Hrncir's boys-are anxious also to improve on: last year's showing and to crack the winning column against the-Rattlers, and with some work on< pass offense and defense this week hope to give San Marcos a run for heir money. Only casualty, but a big one, was the loss of guard Robert Cheatham who is out at least four-weeks with a broken jaw suffered in the Taylor game. Cheatham was one of the standouts defensively for Lockhart and will be sorely missed. Coach Hrncir is working with a new defense this week, one which places Brooks Corley or Don Pen-rod at left end and tackle, Gilbert Perez and Isaac Nohra as middle guard, Keith Koehler at right tackle, and Jim Hamblin at right end, and back of this Earl Feath-erston and Tommy Moore as outside linebacker, Gabe Sanchez as middle linebacker, and James Sanchez and Hank Fielder as the deep men. The offensive lineup will be the same as last week, with Larry Mueller or Charles Kraft, left end; Koehler, left tackle; Perez, left guard; Hamblin, center; Corley, right guard; Lawrence Flippo, right tackle; Featherston, right end. The backfield would be Tommy Moore, quarterback; Fielder at full, and Johnny Fulps and Gabe Sanchez at halfbacks. A comparison of the lines shows the Rattlers outweighing the Lions 182 pounds to 159, unless Nohra or Penrod go in, in which case the Lions weight jumps to 176 pound average. Lockhart has been a running team primarily with halfbacks throwing the ball about as often as the quarterback. Fulps has connected with the only passing touchdown, and is the team's leader in rushing with 229 yards in 43 carries. He is also the punter for the team. Behind him is fullback Fielder (continued on back page) local jobs were held by women, there have been increases in all parts of the country, the average 'Quail Fever' Grips BMC Members "Quail fever" gripped members of the Business Men's Club at their regular meeting Thursday as they viewed a movie of quail in their natural habitat. The film was brought by Game Warden Blackie Bowers. Mr. Bowers informed the group that $10 million is collected annually from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. All of this is used to make Texas a better place to hunt and fish. 500 are employed by the Fish and Wildlife Commission with half of them being game rangers. Many hunters ask "Where are the doves?" To this Mr. Bowers answers that they have gone South to find food. Rain has covered milo seeds and early bird feed and weeds have been slow to mature, hence the migration. We may expect Northern birds to come down as feed matures and cold weather starts. Turkeys in the Delhi area seem to be doing well. If hunters can be kept out of that area for another two or three years there should be plenty of turkey by the fourth year. Quail are showing in pairs, indicating a poor to fair hatch this year. Spike deer will be legal take this year in most of the 100 or so regulatory counties in Texas. Killing a spike would allow a big buck to get by till next season when he would be likely to have a larger rack of horns. Deer season Is November 1 to December 31; dove season in the South zone (our county and South), October 7 to December 7; duck season November II to December 3, and goose season from October 26 to January 8. Quail season opens December 1 and closes January 16. Guests of the BMC were Miss Christin of Austin, Bobby Bran-yon of Austin, and Royce Williams and H. L. Bunch of Lockhart. Pep Rally Set The regular pep rally for Lock-hnrt High School wiil be held Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. at Adams Gymnasium. The public is invited to attend. Decent Housing Needed For Low Income Group It takes guts and a love of your fellow man to get housing for low income groups, despite the fact that the subsidy for low income groups for housing is one of the smallest subsidies, Mrs. Marie McGuire, executive director for the San Antonio Housing Authority, told the Kiwanis Club members Tuesday noon. Mrs. McGuire brought out that point after she had given the history of the public housing law which was passed back in 1937 which says every citizen in the United States has the right to decent housing. She pointed out that airlines, ships, farmers and others get subsidies. She showed that middle Income people get subsidies in the form of loans through FHA to build houses, that banks and vet-, erans have been helped by the government, but that those least able to help themselves are the ones the people are against. One of the reasons those against low rent housing give is that it is socialistic. But subsidies, she says, are not new because airlines etc. have had them. A subsidy is giving needed, service by a government to fill needs of the people, Because of the lack,of concern for people in Tower income groups, Mrs./McGuire says, we let 10 people live in one room, where there are no sanitary facilities, where children's morals are-low because they see from early childhood parent relations and the W*s y ~ Yetiponey lies in wait.for communities who are Interested in bettering the lives of people. Is it good government on a city's part to pass this up and letrpeople' live in substandard housing-? * Mrs. McGuire says that the real etstate lobby in Washington' was very great, but' was defeated by Congress who allowed low rent groups to get aid. But this powerful group will and does operate within the. states and cities to prevent this one group of people from getting help, she said. She pointed out that lov rent housing is not charity, for..'.the people pay 20 percent j;of jtfMHJ income, compared,to about 12 per cent for the average person, .............up .....^---sjfci
