because the position is so important to the its students and its future the search ended in the selection thursday of Lawrence he will take Over his new duties As soon As possible after july Pettit is now Chancellor of the University system of South including Texas a i University in Corpus Christi state University and Laredo stale obviously the average resident of the the average Siu or the average faculty member of the Siu system is not qualified to judge at this time How Good a Chancellor Pettit will prove to but the length of the search which led to his hiring would seem to indicate that those doing the searching Are the search committee gave every indication of being qualified to do its it is interesting to note that the University system recognizes the now Well established fact that the chief executive of any College system today must be part part and part if the squeaking wheel gets the the persuasive Chancellor gets the no Chancellor need Sacri fice educational background and knowledge or administrative ability to be also adept at the Art of wooing those politicians who hold the purse indications Are that Pettit is Well qualified in that important part of his As Well As in

Revenue of approximately a month in Marshall Zeke Airport offered to cough up the Quarter of a million dollars the commissioners chose not to accept the offer for whatever the commissioners May yet reverse their Field and decide to build the they Are obviously worried about building a facility which will not be used to they Are Wise perhaps to go unfortunately they Are in the position of being criticized either if they spend the Money and the hangers Are not taxpayers will be if they dont build the someone will be sure to insist the Airport authority is losing Revenue which could be substituted for which is Why the commissioners Are by to be Worth the Money they draw from the new tax Laws Are needed is it perhaps possible that the tax Reform program now in Congress May yet become

a two earner couple with no children and total income of would about More in taxes if the plan becomes according to Ira director of National tax services for Coopers Lybrand a fou member family with in wages and too few deductions to itemize would pay less a tax Cut of 23 a single person earning wages and interest would pay almost exactly the same taxes As under present Shapiro so the family getting the break will do the family which would pay More taxes will yell Long and of regardless of the Justice involved in the someone who has been getting a free ride for years will feel imposed upon if he has to pay a he whose tax Bill is going up is not going to admit he might have been paying less than his share for the last 20 limiting the deductible Ira contributions to those not covered
