was a city in which the majority of the supervisors were the mayor was and the two members of Con r STOP Andy Rooney There should be a moratorium on curestories Following are thoughts that came to my mind while I was reading the newspaper this week Every few months theres another story about a new cure for If you read the stories you realize it isnt a cure at all and isnt available yet There ought to be a moratorium on cancercure stories until the real thing comes along and is Doctors making their rounds of ter minally ill cancer patients must dread the trip the day after one of these stories Every patient they see must expect them to have the magic nostrum in their Bank officers got the biggest raises of all company executives in Their salaries increased by 14 per And here I thought a lot of banks were in trouble because of the money they lent to farmers r coun tries like neither of which can pay back their There are always a lot of attrac tive advertisements in the paper for watches at Id have thought everyone had a watch by Do people own more than one watch I suppose there are fashion conscious women who change wat ches depending on what theyre wearing but I dont think many men have two active Last week the Navy suspended General Dynamics from receiving any new government contracts after that company was charged with Later the same week the Navy ex tended the deadline on bids to build four new nuclear submarines because if it the Navy wouldnt have been able to give the contract to General Make sense to you I know we have a free enterprise economy in the United States but Im not sure why our Defense Depart ment doesnt build its own sub marines and make its own guns and War shouldnt be a good business for U was two days after the space shuttle Atlantis came down last week before I heard about A space shot is hardly news anymore and proves we can get used to Connie Francis was removed from an airplane on the runway in Houston because she refused to stop

impress 1 couldnt look at one thing wed done to keep a commitment to the womens said She walked and thought that day about the lack of womens and the need for women to hold their elected officials Our interests always get put on the back We Oh well wait until next Walker decided to hold herself ac When the local Child Care Law Center drafted an innovative daycare she got hold of it and Lets just do And they did Today San Francisco is the first ci ty In the country with a law that makes developers of major new pro jects provide rentfree space or ante up per square foot for nearby childcare No child no building I expected them to scream like stuck pigs from here to next says But opposition has been At least one major developer is ready and waiting for the regula tions to be completed so he can come Maybe San Francisco developers are getting conditioned to publicminded strings on private pro After the new zoning laws also mandate a budget for As Walker If you hang a piece of art for in the why not put the kids in the They change every and people never get bored with Aside from the esthetic beauty of preschool onsite day care may also make some business U gives the developer a competitive edge In selling space to especially when the city had an office vacancy rate of 12 It gives the corporation an edge in hiring and holding the loyalty of a young work It is no secret that a workers performance goes up when anxiety about the children goes But the real profit motive behind this ordinance is for the working families of the Bay Like families in every city on the only in dustrialized nation in the world without a daycare there are more children here in need of day care than places to care for To boil down all the stories to half the mothers of pre school children in the Bay Area are one child in five lives In a singleparent and last year there were requests to the ci tys childcare coordinator that Went About twothirds of those who need child care cant afford the average 1450 a Nevertheless its taken a long time for day care to become a breaking most have enlisted parents into their work force without assuming any respon sibility for child The amount of energy needed to lift a child off the corporate launching pad has been Families with young who need child care most often have the least leftover fuel to expend in The major attraction of the new San Francisco law is that it will not only enlarge the number of child care slots and lower the but br ing care closer to the parents This is more than a con venience it gives parents a stronger connection to centers and a chance to lunch with and visit their pre The San Francisco ordinance is on ly a modest first step in forgoing a privatepublic partnership for But its a decent example of what can happen when women use power to get a piece of that agende off the back There are still some who find the notion of putting child care in downtown skyscrapers a bit When outsiders talk to Walker about the They say to Can you imagine graysuited executives riding up the elevator to the 26th floor with a bunch of stickyfingered kids I I It would do them a world of here comes that world of

a precious In our Texas forefathers dedicated 16 million acres of public Education is a precious commodity for Texas residents land to help finance public education in Income from these to be managed by the Texas General Land was deposited into a special endowment fund for educa tion called the Permanent School Fortunately for Texas school the income from more than oil and gas wells flows into the Permanent School Thanks to this Texas has an endowment of billion for growing steadily every because only the income from its investments not the principal itself can be spent each year on Last income from these investments was million enough to provide per public school pupil for basic education pur Ever since this endowment was set aside by Texas founding Texans have invested in education with their Congress is about to approve a bill that will provide Texas another million for public Of that would go into the Permanent School Fund with the rest to go into the Available School Fund for immediate use in public At a time when education is more important than it is good to know that Texans will reaffirm that education must provide a future for that education is every bit as valuable as any precious Mailbag Fact finding Committee asks for help To Editor HELP WANTED Many of you who were contacted during the census of fered to help in any way possible because you thought that if Canyon
