The club organized with 20 charter members, and is open to all lake-area men aged 18 to 36. “We want to get members of the community in that age bracket to meet and do things for the community as a whole,” Matzke said, explaining that the Jaycees’ aims are community, individual and family development.

The club's first community activity will be a walk-a-thon to raise money for the Ronnie Daniel Wells fund.

Army Corps of Engineers personnel at Canyon Dam can now read their lake level without leaving their office. A new satellite gauge installed in the beadhouse of the dam last week reads and relays information about the lake to the Corps Fort Worth District office. The microprocessor data collection system collects information every hour and transmits that information via satellite to Fort Worth every four hours. The communication satellite the Corps uses is operated by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration < NOAAl. Before the new equipment was installed, the lake level was kept on a Stevens recorder in the tower. “We would go out to the dam and visually check the information,” said Reservoir Manager Phil Parsley. With the new system, the computer “beeps" the lake height to the communications satellite at pre-determined times throughout the day and night, and Canyon Lake personnel can obtain the information by contacting the district office by radio. Parsley said the new system “takes away a lot of the guesswork” involved in the operation. “If the river rises so many feet in a given length of time, an alert goes out, and we know we have incoming water that needs to be watched for positive action,” Parsley explained. The new device is especially helpful at night, when the Corps office is not manned. “We still have the ability to manually check for problems and errors. This new system is not replacing any people,” Parsley noted. “It’s also a time-saver. We don’t have to drive out there and check the gauges,” he added. The installation is a joint project of the U. S. Geological Survey, the U. S. Weather Service and the Corps of Engineers. -SANDRA JACKSONActivities Church In the Valley Friendship Circle members will meet on Dec.
