(AP) A husky, well-educated electronics employe became Thursday the first juror chosen to try Jack Ruby for murder in the slaying of Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy. He Is Max E. Causey, 35, father of two boys, holder ot a masters degree in education with a Job In military elec- tronics In a Dallas aerospace plant. He has crew-cut, light brown -hair, a square face, and the hint of a double chin. A defense lawyer quoted Ruby as concurring in the selection of Causey by declaring, "He looks all right to me." Causey was sworn in on Ihe fourth day of the trial, during which the defense claimed court room security guards were in- terfering with Ruby's Irial and eavesdropping on his strategy consultations with his lawyers, first juror was accepted by bolh the state and the de- fense only afler 23 before him had been Five other prospecls were dis- qualified after Causey's selec- tion and the trial was recessed overnight with a sixth under examination.

"The selection was based on outstanding service lo the com- munity and to the engineering president. Carl Tur- ner, who made the presenta- tion, said. "Bill Klolz has not only demonstrated exceptional capability in his chosen field of engineering, but has also per- formed outstanding service to his community." Klotz, who is well known in the seven-county area represent- ed by the chapter, is director and chief of the Victoria di- vision, Lockwood, Andrews and Ncwnam, Some 35 members of the so- ciety were present at the ban- quet, which had Dr. J.

Mexico Colors The airport itself was decked out in hundreds of pennants. They carried the colors emble- matic of white and well as the Ameri- can red, while and blue. There was a slight wind and Ihe comfortable 50 out every- thing from mink coals to den- ims and sweaters among the spectators. Some of the men wore the typically Texan LBJ hats. Loud Cheers There was a ripple of ap- plause and then scattered loud cheers as the President, who had napped about half the four and one-half hour flight, ap- peared in the door of the big Air Force jet. Well-wishers were lined up (our and five deep at the close vantage, points. The President soon was hand- shaking his way along a nearby fence. While this was going on Mrs. Johnson was taken to a waiting black limousine and a small cheering section began chant- ing: "We want Ladybird. Hay, Ladybird." j Ladybird Shakes Hands I Applause followed. She then left the car and, to loud cheers, followed her husband's hand- shaking example. Johnson and his wife left the airport about 25 minutes after ilheir arrival. Johnson's summit session (with Lopez Matcos shapes up as one with a minimum of prob- lems and a maximum of amity.

This Billion scheme proposes a "grand canal" lo carry water 418 miles from the Sabine River to the Lower Rio 'Grande Valley, all the way across coastal Texas, and in effect would do away with all local control of water resources as far as coastal areas are con- cerned. An integral part of this vast system, as shown above, would be a confluence dam and reser- voir on'the Guadalupe River below Victoria, with the reservoir to cover acres of prime agri- cultural and industrial land and stretch nearly to the city limits of Victoria. Another arm of. the con- fluence structure would be across the San Antonio River where it joins the Guadalupe. With this type of development right along the coast, it was hinted, a large part of the upper Guadalupe Valley's water resources could then be turned into a source of sup- ply for the San Antonio metropolitan area and points west. The Victoria Barge Canal, as shown on the map, would run along the edge of the reser- voir. that the ter and slronger lhan wilh any jEntries DmAccidenl Trial iNew Snow ji'omniission had studied Valley Estates Heights subclivis or clergyman because, "Th c y1 can don't have acute personal needs Jolln fo1 for our profession."

Defendant in the case is Wil-, lie Lee Franklin who was Blows Into Panhandle Ry TUT ASSocjAirn VRKSS Hazardous driving wai Big Would Divert Canyon Flow By ROY GRIMES Advocate Staff Writer The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority was shocked and dis- mayed Thursday at a grandiose and new "Texas Basins Project" report from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation which could have the effect of .timing the upper Guadalupe Valley into a source of water supply for the San Antonio met- ropolitan area and points west, This over-all SI.2 billion pro- posal by the Bureau ot Reclama- tion, nearly 15 years in the mak- ing, is based on its well-known "grand canal" scheme aimed at carrying water in huge volume 418 miles from the Sabine Rivet- to the Rio Grande Valley, all the way across coastal Texas. The "dream" canal would cross all of the major river ba- sins of Texas except the Cana- dian, the Red and the Rio Gran- de. If it should become a reality the inevitable result almost cer- tainly would be to do away with local control by any river basin over its own water resources, and the present system of state- appointed river authorities ob- viously would be left high and dry.
