A discount sforc has recently placed a sign in its front window whlcii .reads, "We reserve Ihc righl lo refuse service lo anyone." Is Ihis legal? If II Is, is 11 determined who will be re- fused? A. Hanging up a sign docsn'l exempt anybody from discrimination laws, if that's what, you're asking. But a store does have Ihe right lo refuse service to someone known for giving bad checks, or a drunk or disorderly customer or someone who's curs- Ing and acting generally obnoxious. A store owner has that right wilh or without a sign. Our aulhoritics think a store could conceiv- ably run into problems wilh civil rights legislation if one. of Ihe signs is hanging in full view and if some customer decides to charge discrimination because of race, creed, elc.

An apparent incident involving an 18-wonth-old child proved fa- tal for a 23-year-old Abilene man Sunday night. Joe Fernandez of 1220 Mulber- ry was pronounced dead by Jus- tice of the Peace Roland Dun- wody al a.m. Monday from one wound from a .22 cali- ber pistol in his stomach, lie had been rushed lo the Hendrick emergency, room about 11 p.m. from the residence of Hen Gom- ez al 1718 Kirkwood, where Ihe incident occurred. Wiliicsses lold police that Fer- nandez had just bought Die pis- tol and was slowing it around. They said Fernandez unloaded the gun, llien placed one shell in Ihe cylinder, spun the cylinder, cocked the .hammer and gave the gun to Ihe child, telling him lo pull the trigger. .There, were several persons present, police said. The same process was repeal- ed unlil ihe gun fii'cd, hitting Fernandez in Ihe lower left stomach, witnesses said. Judge Dunwody said Monday morning that he would rule death by accidental gunshot wound in tlie case. Funeral for Fernandez is pending at F.lliolt-tlamil Funer- al Home. and this special award is pre- senled. only to lliose employes whose actions in a life and death cm e r'g c n c y situation reflect qualities of dedicated service, Powell said. Mrs. Darko and Johnson arc the Hiiro" and fourth recipients of Ihe award since Us establish- ment by the hospital in 1370. The first'two Hendrick employes lo receive Ihe award were Fay Shipley, LVN, and Patricia Kent, RN. They were credited wilh saving the life of a visitor who suffered an apparent heart attack while in (he hospital on April 24, 1971. IT WAS A SIMILAR silualion- lo which Mrs. Darko and John- son also responded. A visitor' in Ihe hospital on Jan.-1 was leaving the cafeteria when he became dizzy. After sil- ting in a chair for a moment, he became unconscious and slopped breathing. Evaluating Ihe situation, Mrs. Darko began immediately lo administer mouth-to-inoulh resuscitation while Johnson performed exler- nal cardiac massage on the visi- tor. T h c's e lifesaving measures were maintained unlil the visitor regained consciousness and sup- port personnel arrived al the scene.

Appointments 'Turned Around' DOUGLAS, Ariz. Al Romero, operator of a Mexi- can food cafe here, -believes turnabout is fair play. In Arizona some gasoline dealers require customers to make appointments lo. get fuel. In a newspaper adver- tisement Friday, Romero had this advice for gasoline deal- ers: "Booze and beer filled only by appointment lo all service slalion operators. For appoint-' menl, call between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m." Romero's cafe is closed dur- ing those hours. GAY1.0H1) SHAW Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (Al1) Pres- ident Nixon today proposed cost-of-living increases in veter- ans' pensions and an eight per cent boost in GI benefits as part of a billion legislative package for veterans. Nixon, also urged that Con- gress restore Nov. 11 as Veter- ans Day, repealing part of a 1968 law which switched Ihe holiday lo the fourth Monday in October." The proposals were contained in a special message to Con- gress, one of a scries Nixon is sending lo Capilol Hill before his State of Ihe Union address Wednesday night. TheTresidenl said his admin- istration' is preparing legisla- lioh. lo grant the 2.4 million per- sons receiving veterans, pen- sions the same type of automat- ic cosl-pMiving increases avail- a bl e lo Social Security- recipients. lie .also said the -veterans pension program should be re- structured' to assure that Ihe neediest pensioners will receive al leasl as much as adull wel- fare recipients. Nixon said the eight per cent increase in education benefits he is seeking will supply an ex- tra million in aid for the more than two million lading advantage of Hie 01 bill ediu-a- lion and training allowances. The increase is needed, he said, "to keep pace with inllalion." Legislation is pending in both House and Scnale to provide for a 13.6 per cent increase. The President reported thai the Veterans Administralion is embarking on Ihe greatest pro- gram of hospital construction in its historv. lie said a record million is being sought in fiscal 1975 which begins next July 1 for hospilal construction, and that his budget will provide, funds lo hire air additional medical personnel. In addilion to- the medical, education and pension benefils, Nixon said America should "re- pay her debts lo the men and and women who have served her by setting aside cer- tain days lo commemorate Iheir service. One such day was Sunday, Ihe first anniversary of Hie Vietnam cease-fire, which Nix- on proclaimed as National MIA Awareness Day. Another is March 2'J, the first anniversary of Ihe relurn of prisoners of war, which is being designated Vietnam Veterans Day.
