Four egg-throwing incidents were called in to the police department with one resident reporting some 30 boys pelting his house with eggs. A strategically placed loud record player on College Dr. filled the neighborhood with Halloween noises until police requested that they cease. The only near-tragedy reported Halloween came when two boys, one IO and one 14, were jumped by two teen aged boys and struck with boards in south Abilene.

Halloween night. The spook house was built by several boys in the neighborhood. (Staff Photo) By THD ASSOCIATED PRESS Protesters in cities across the country staged generally peaceful demonstrations, parades and rallies against the Vietnam War Saturday, three days before Tuesday’s election. Crowds seemed generally smaller than previous nationwide antiwar protests. Rilled by its sponsors as a “massive * demonstration for peace,” the nationwide protest took place three days before American voters went to the polls to vote for governors, senators and congressmen in an off-year national election. When the demonstrations were announced in early October, some peace group leaders said they feared protests just before the election might harm the campaigns of peace candidates. In Madison, Wis., a rally sponsored for Sunday was cancelled Saturday in part because many of the organizers felt the benefits from such a protest would be marginal compared to the possible damage to .some candidates in the election, particularly if violence erupted. President Nixon, who has campaigned this month throughout the country for Republican candidates, has called on voters to elect men to Congress who will support his policies. While the President campaigned in the West, demonstrators estimated by police at about 450 marched in a circle on a sidewalk in front of the White House, to protest the war. One demonstrator, a member of the Students’ Mobilization Committee which is a sponsor of the demontrations, said organizers planned to keep the nationwide protest "entirely peaceful.” He said violent demonstrations against the President Thursday night in San Jose, Cal if., “no doubt hurt our cause” in regard to the election. The President denounced violent demonstrations such as tho one in San Jose, in campaign speeches in Anaheim, Calif., Friday night and in Phoenix, Saturday. Police estimated 3,500 persons attended a rally at the statehouse in Columbus, Ohio. The demonstrators, mostly students from various Ohio universities, had marched three miles from Ohio State University to the rally site. Rally sponsors had predic'ed 10,000 would attend. PHOENIX, Ariz. (API -Warning that Americans are in danger of losing their freedom to “haters,” President Nixon declared Saturday that the time has come to take a tough-minded approach to violence. The new approach, he said, would include tougher laws, firmer justice in the courtroom and a new and stem attitude by the American people to deal with terroristic dissent. What is not needed, he declared, is bluster and repression. Several thousand—including a few mostly silent dissidents— turned out to welcome Nixon in Phoenix. Other greeters waved banners and signs with such legends as “No Rocks Here” a id “We don’t Want to Know the Way to San Jose.” This was a reference to the stoning of the President’s campaign motorcade in San Jose, Calif., Thursday night. The President began by telling his audience, which was overwhelmingly friendly, that he wanted to make a major statement that needs to be said now. Then he began reading from his prepared text. Upon landing in Phoenix, Nixon made public a telegram that he had sent to Bill Langin, president of the student body at San Jose State College, who had wired him to say the student body disapproved of Thursday night’s attack. The President extended ’’my very best wishes” to the students and stated: “You can be sure that I was totally awrare of the fact that only a small number of San FOOTBALL AND ICE CREAM Distractions Slow Austin Rally Baird Passes School Bond Issues in Close Balloting BAIRD (RNS)—Both Issues of a two-part $235,000 school bond election carnied in Baird Saturday, paving the way for a new $110,000 high school gymnasium and a $125,000 package including a new junior high library science building and remodeling of the junior high. A first bond issue for $275,000 had been turned down by Baird voters Sept. 26. Saturday’s election was In two sections. The first, a proposal for a $110,000 gymnasium, carried 258 for and 227 against, according to Jon Hardwick, election judge.

It carried 277 for and 209 against. “We’re real happy, this has relieved everybody of a lot of pressure,” Bruce Williams, president of the school board, said Saturday night. “If this hadn’t carried it would have meant remodeling little by little which we felt wasn't the economical way,” he said. Board members were told in March by the Texas Education Agency that the district had to make certain improvements to preserve its accreditation. Williams said that architects for the new structure will be Grady Cozby and Carl Preston, both of Abilene. “We hope to have at least part of the buildings completed by the beginning of school next fall, maybe all of it completed,” Williams said. The buildings will be of steel, rather than conventional type buildings as proposed in the first election. According to Jon R. Tate, school superintendent of the Baird district, this was a factor in reducing the cost of the ‘ proposals in the second election. Another factor was the board’s decision to hire an architect as a consultant on an hourly rate instead of hiring a fulltime architect Total vote in the second election was 495, “which was 33 more than turned out for the first election,” Hardwick said. “It’s a reasonably large turnout for our school district,” he said. AUSTIN (AP) — A statewide anti-war parade and rally on the state capitol grounds had lots of trouble Saturday-but not from the numerous state and local police hovering nearby. First, there was the University of Texas-Southern Methodist University football game that apparently cut the expected 10,-000 attendance to 3.000 or 4,000, as estimated by a plain clothes state police officer. UT-Austin officials said 26,500 student tickets were drawn for the game. Second, there were frequent interruptions from groups competing with the Student Mobilization Committee, original sponsors who paid $330 to the city for the parade permit. “Good God. this is like a war,” said one harried SMC official. “This is the most vigorous response we could give to President Nixon’s carnival TV show last night,” said Mike Alewitz, SMC leader who is a student now at UT-Austin but was at Kent State University when Ohio National Guardsmen fired on a demonstration there. About that time along came a band of colilege-age boys and girls, draped in blood red burlap robes, crude wooden yokes around their necks, carrying Bibles and pounding the sidewalk with heavy wooden staves. SMC marshals quickly surrounded the group, whose members stood silently, staring into the sky. Members of the group would not answer questions but SMC marshals said they were part of “Operation Alternative” staged by the Campus Crusade for Christ as a counter demonstration Friday to the student strike called by the SMC. Each campus rally Friday attracted only about 500 to 1,000. About this time along came still another county demonstration. “Join us. Break away. March on to the (local) Buick Co. to demonstrate your support of the striking auto workers,” said their placards. There went some more of the crowd. Then came another major distraction. Two ice cream trucks drove up, their bells jingling. Thirsty and tired parade marchers—Indian head dresses, big leather hats, long fringed boots, and all the trimmings—lined up three and four deep for ice cream chocolate bars. Jose students participated, that a substantial number of those who created the disturbance were from outside of the city.. Some antiwar protesters told reporters that security guards had taken away their tickets to get into the hangar, forcing them to stand on the sunny runway outside, far removed from the speakers’ stand. Before Nixon arrived, the master of ceremonies, cowboy singer Rex Allen told the crowd to wave their pro-Nixon placards in front of the television cameras so they could be seen throughout the nation later in the day. Nixon's remarks, delivered to a Republican rally at the airport in Phoenix, represented the climactic statement of his personal campaign in behalf of GOP candidates. 4-Month-Old Child Killed In (ar Wreck Four-month-old Paul Pedroza, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Pedroza of 2134 N. 18th, died at 11:25 p.m. at Hendrick Memorial Hospital Saturday night from injuries he received in a two-car accident. The child suffered multiple head injuries, lacerations and a fractured skull in the accident which occurred at 6:36 p.m. Saturday at Old Anson and Stamford roads. According to police reports, the accident occurred when a car driven by Mrs. Amelia Pedroza collided with a car driven by Mrs. Margaret B. Hudson of Green Valley, Ariz. Also injured in the wreck were Edward, Rose Maty and Bobby Pedroza, all of 2i34 N. 18th. They were passengers in the Pedroza car. All were listed in satisfactory condition at Hendrick Saturday night. Also injured and in satisfactory condition at Hendrick were Mrs. Hudson and Hershel B. Hudson, a passenger in the Hudson car.

Section    E Women's News ... 1-12,16-D Medicaid Alternative Proposed By LYNNA WILLIAMS Reporter-News Staff Writer “Probably the    most    serious problem facing    the    health industry in this country is the availability and distribution of health services    —    havi g medical care availab’e to every American who needs it,” Dr. Paul M. Ellwood Jr., director of the American Rehabilitation Foundation in Minneapolis, said in Abilene Saturday. Guest speaker for the two -day West Texas Stroke Symposium here, Ellwood is a presidential adviser to the Nixon administration and developer of a new concept of health services that has as its aim the assurance of the availability of health services through a new method of distribution. The alternative to the current practice of paying for and distributing each service in the health field individually, such as financing a stay in the hospital or a doctor s visit, Ellwood said, Is “the health maintenance organization (HMO) — a full range of medical services for one fixed annual payment.” The concept is being put forth also as an option - "a choice of systems” - to Medicare ar.d Medicaid and is now under scrutiny by the Senate Finance Committee after passing the House, Ellwood noted. “THE MOST important thing is that every American have medical care available and with this method patients have a choice of the system they wish to use also,” he said. Here's How HMO Compares Comparing the present health care system of the U. S., the generally state-run system of most European states and the proposed HMO (health mainenance organization), Dr. Ellwood sees these basic differences: What is the difference in the pav systems? U.S.-mixture of part taxes and part direct payment. Europe—public funds, from taxes. HMO-fixed yearly fee. What is the difference in availability of services? U.S.-guaranteed payment through insurance but services not guaranteed. Europe—payment guaranteed and services if they exist. HMO-services guaranteed for those who sign up. Who performs the services? U.S.—individuals. Europe—individuals. HMO—individuals or organization. What are the drawbacks to each system? U.S.—excessive regulation,    inflation, maldistribution. Europe—excessive regulation: lack of innovation because of lack of competition. HMO—participating doctors must work in organization, medical care    from one organization. What are the advantages of each system? U.S.—technical excellence,    care by individuals, innovation. Europe—government pays    for care; health care reaches everyone. HMO—less regulation, innovation because of competition. .c    .s.    3    J)v;    -    ta    * f I The 43 - year - old doctor, who heads a large commission that explores new answers to health services questions stressed Saturday that the problem in the health industry’ in America can't be solved simply through financing. “The problem is much more complex and difficult than that,” he said, “The answer isn’t simply more doctors either, or the increasing of physician assistance...the most vital area is the way in which health services are organized and delivered.” Ellwood explained that the HMO concept “redefines the job of distributing health services,” adding that “the job is health — whatever way a patient gets it.” Detailing a typical HMO setup, Ellwood said that the organization furnishing the services would contract with all facets of health service to offer the person paying the fixed fee a complete range of services from pediatrics to neurology, See NEW, Pg. tK ;
