Winters Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 20, 1966, Winters, Texas WINTERS: A West Texas City "Growing" Places! €nkxptmt BUY IT IN WINTERS! VOLUME NO. SIXTY-TWO WINTERS, TEXAS (795«7)» FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1966 PRICE 10c NUMBER 9 ■ We Americans are really hep to the suggestion that we must go to great lengths to "export" olir ideas and philosophies of life and living to help sòme of the so-called less fortunate countries of the world more nearly approach our own levels of culture, etc. Which is all well and good—if we are prepared to accept the fact that some of those other countries have a few ideas from which we might profit, if we could only bend a little and .accept them. Take for instance the area of postage stamps. During the past ' few years we have been flooded by countless designs in postage stamps, especially the commemorative stamps. The designs of the basic stamps— the ^ ^ay-by-day reguldrs—have somehow withstood thé rigors of time and have held their oWn; perhaps because they are nothing elaborate, but simple, expertly-engraved heads and figures, similar to the figures oh our coins. But the commem-oratives! While some of them could be said to be compliments to their designers, there have been others which have approached and even passed the "modernistic" and "expressionist art" category; sòme of the Christmas season stamps of the past several years have taken on a gaudy decorative appearance, and one has had to look twice to separate them from some of the fund-raising stamps and trading starnps. ; If you ever receive mail from sorhe foreign country, take a moment and make some comparisons. (And we hope we will riot be considered unpatriotic to bring up this subject.) There are many exceptions, of course, but there are many foreign which would lay most of our commemoratives in the shade, beauty-wise. And it so happens that some of the real beauties come not from some of the big and rich and powerful countries, but from recently - emerged young nations. We have been receiving quite a bit of mail recently from "Our Man In Tanzania; " and the stamps he sticks on those letters are something out of this world. They're not gaudy, stick-çandy types! On the contrary, they are colorful to the point of real beauty; to look at them one would not believe that ■ they came from what we are inclined to call a "backward" and undeveloped country. One stamp, a scene of Dar-Es-Salaam Harbour, is a real beauty, with subtle tones and yet .holding the eye. ,Another, a scene of a Game Park Lodge, another beautifully ..designed and executed stamp. Muirchison Falls, Uganda! A Deep Sea Fishing scene, Tanzania! Another- fishing scene a(;àìhst a map of Mafia Island, Tanzania! AWARDS DAY — Darlene Srieed, Winters High School senior who won first place in shorthand competition in State UIL contests in Austin recently, presents the plaque she won to the school.

(Texas Tech Photo) "Exploratory Think" Program To Study Recreation Possibilities The possibility of expanding present recreational facilities and adding new ones in Winters is being investigated by the Winters Chamber of Commerce and other interested organizations. A series of meetings will be held within the next few weeks in a program of study, termed "Exploratory Think," to discuss the different phases of such projects and different means of financing. The first such meeting was held last Thursday night at the City Hall, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. Attending were representatives of most of the civic and social clubs of the city, as well as members of the City Council. The second planning and study meeting will be held in the high school auditorium Thursday, May 26. At this meeting will give reports of the thinking of their organizations. Harvey D. Jones, president of the Chamber of Commerce, presided, and explained that with shorter work weeks expected to be a reality within a short time, and with the American people possessing more and more CARY L. GREEN CLETES W. KILLOUGH Two Winters Seniors Receive Coveted Opportuni^ Award Scholarshqis Two graduating seniors of Winters ¡High School' have been notified ■ that they will receive coveted Texas A&M University Opportunity Award' Scholarships. ■ Cfetes W¿yne (Bo) Killough and Cary L. Green, who will graduate with the Class of '66, Willi enter Texas A&M next fall and will each receive stipends of; $1,000 to assist them in installments of $250 per year for four years. ' . The program annually provides approximately 100 four-year scholarship's to high school graduates of Texas who are capable of outstanding''scholastic achievement and are worthy of the award. The awards are made. possible through the Association of Former Students, the Texas A&M University Development Fund, and by interested citizcns and organizations of the State. Killough IS the son of Mr. and Mrs. Cletes C. Killough of Winters. He plans to major in electrical engineering. Green is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter J. Green of Route 2, Wingate, and plans to major in wildlife sciencc. iU'i i.f-J-L money to spend during additional leisure time, a virtual "revolution in the concept of recreation is upon us." With Winters being situated as it is, within short driving distances from metropolitan areas, the possibilities of adequate recreational facilities to meet the ever-increasing demand must not be overlooked, he indicated. Jim Weaver, of American Engineers of Austin, was present and showed movies of recreational projects which had been built in other parts of the country. Some of the projects suggested for study include improvement of golf course facilities, a community center building. Little League baseball grounds, picnic and camping areas, rodeo arena and more adequate livestock show barns. It was suggested that the area of the old Winters Lake north of town would be ideal for a camping and picnic ground. If the area were improved, it was pointed out, it would be used by not only local persons but by tourists who want to spend a night and for picnic groups from surrounding towns. Mayor W. M. Hays has explained that the City Council several months ago corrimis-sioned eneinecrs to study the area of the old Winters Lake with an idea toward making a picnic and camping ground. Plans have been drawn, and enp.ineers were said to have initiated applications for a grant from the Parks & Wildlife Department with which to do the work. Mayor Hays said the Council should have more definite information regarding this project within a few days. Weaver told the group of about 40 persons attending the meeting Thursday night that there are several ways in. which such projects can be financed. He said that on some projects, the- community may be able to apply for and receive direct grants; on others, he said, long term loans may be available. He said that this could be done by the City of Winters or by an independent non-profit corporation organized for that purpose. If the City undertook the prb^ iect, he said, it probably would be feasible to sell revenue bonds. If done by an independent organization, members would build the framework by way of selling memberships, and then apply for grants or loans. Jones urged all organizational representatives to take back to their respective organizations a report on this first meeting and then come to the second meeting next week iwith suggestions as to what could be done to make the community grow recreation-wise. Several blocks of Winters' streets are receiving a seal coating this week following authorization by the City Council Monday night to spend approximately $2200 on the project. Officials said this summer's street project is a continuation of the program which has been underway for several years to seal coat some of the city's streets each year. Streets approved to receive seal coating at this time include: East Dale: one and one-half blocks, from Grant Street east. North Grant Street: From East Dale north to Parsonage, one block. Parsonage Street: One block, from Main Street to North Grant. Hamilton Street: Two and one-half blocks, from South Main west to the railroad. Circle Drive: Approximately 1310 feet, in Winterhaven Addition. BARN BEING BUILT Contractors have started work on the new City Maintenance Barn in the southeast section of town. Forms were built last week, and concrete floor and foundations were poured this week. It is anticipated that the building proper will begin to go up next week. Contractors expected to complete the project within two weeks after start of installation of the prefab steel building. HOSPITAL WORK City Council has approved purchase of additional furniture for patient rooms in Winters Municipal Hospital. Officials said that there has been a need, primarily, for chairs in the rooms. Council also approved purchase and installation of three more evaporative air conditioners for the hospital. By-laws of the Winters Municipal Hospital were studied and approved by the City Council Monday night, as a prerequisite to receiving approval of the hospital for operation under the provisions of the Medicare program which becomes effective July 1. Council also agreed to call a meeting with architects to consider what can be done about adding on to the present hospital. City officials will begin a long-range study of the possibilities for additions. In other business, the City Council also authorized the City Secretary to hire a high school boy with a mechanical drawing background to assist in drawing up tax maps for use by the equalization board.
