Page 2 Copperas Cove press sunday september 2,1973 up amp old Hettal tap amp rim i editorials private schools must be certified Austi while some 250, too texans Are in the process of registering for College and University courses this fall and thousands More entering vocational and technical training in Public Junior colleges there Are others who will be looking to private Trade and vocational schools. These private schools which offer courses in a wide Range of subject from stenographic or welding to accounting or to repair can provide career training for the new High school graduate As Well As the person looking for a new Field for his or her particular talents. Prior to 1971, the prospective private vocational student was at a disadvantage when he he began shopping for a school. Advertising claims frequently went beyond what a school actually could guarantee. Misrepresentations of course offerings Job placement Caparbi Lites and payment plans were complained of. Witnesses told a legislative fact finding committee of experiences involving educational disappointments such As signing up for training which was not in fact available As Well As economic frustrations such As being required to pay out allegedly worthless contracts. Legitimate Trade and vocational school operators became concerned and urged that All the private schools be regulated. As a result the Texas legislature passed a Texas proprietary school act which took effect in 1972. The act administered by the Texas pro education Agency requires . Certification of the private career schools requires state approval of the courses they offer and prohibits misrepresentations in course sales and advertising. As of now some 240 proprietary schools have been certificated by the state and applications from about 30 newly organized schools Are pending approval. This has been an obvious Benefit to the texans seeking to further their educational opportunities and increase their earning capacities in institutions apart from the College and University systems. The Texas proprietary school division of the Texas education Agency maintains a list of All certificated schools and their approved courses As Well As All institutions qualified for veterans training. And the . Also works with my consumer Protection division in the investigation of charges of unauthorized a a career schools As Well As any complaints of misrepresentations of authorized operations. I am told that an average of one complaint a week is received and that most of these have been found to relate to misunderstandings rather than violations of the act. But my office has had occasion to file suit As Legal representative of the ., primarily when we have uncovered violations by Pyramid sales schemes which offered As part of their marketing plans a a schools which were not schools at All but merely part of the sales pitch. If you or your child encounter any problem which you consider to be a violation of the Texas proprietary school act do not hesitate to Contact the attorney general a consumer Protection division or the . But since ifs always better to be Safe than sorry keep these precautionary measures in mind when you Start talking about private Trade or vocational education beware of High pressure sales methods. Look out for exaggerated promises such As a a easy courses or a a guaranteed Job placement. Read every word of the contract offered and determine the refund policies of the school in the event of illness or some other event which could prevent you from completing a course. Visit the school. Talk to the faculty and talk to persons who have graduated from the school. Be certain that the operation is certificated by the Texas education Agency and if you still want reassurance Check with you local better business Bureau and with major employers in your Community. Once you have found the right school the rest is up to you. Good Luck to you. West saving soviet Economy the report on the soviet unions Industrial production just published in Moscow a economic Gazette reveals far More than the Kremlin could possibly have intended. The statistics throw into bold Relief the fact that the russians Are relying on Trade with the West As Well As on Western investment and technology to achieve goals that have always eluded them. Where there Are signs of economic Progress the commissars can take no glowing 7.3 per cent increase in production so far this year a Well Over the target of a 5.7 per cent increase a is obviously a loaded statistic. The target itself was so Low that surpassing it was almost a foregone conclusion. Using last year s dismal performance As a reference Point assured the Kremlin that production figures released at midyear would provide a morale boosting Spur to Ivan to keep trying harder. We doubt if russian workers longing to own an automobile Are particularly thrilled to see that the greatest production gains Are in the heavy Industry sector. That is where the soviet government has always placed its priorities assuring the Means for producing ships tanks guns planes and missiles for the soviet Arsenal and for Export to russians allies. If the Prospect of More consumer goods is any closer it is thanks to the capitalist West the report exhibits gains in efficiency in the production of computerized machine tools automobiles and farm machinery. These Are Fields which Are the first to feel the Impact of technology being imported to the soviet Union from Western Europe and the United states of America. Sectors still lagging include production of Oil and Gas Petroleum refining pulp and paper processing and production of fertilizer. These Are the very Fields in which the russians Are still negotiating for cooperative development with the West. It is doubtful if the average soviet citizen knows to what extent his communist government is now turning to the capitalist world to make Good on promises it has never been Able to keep on its own. As the soviet Economy begins to Benefit from this infusion we can be sure that Kremlin propagandists will attribute it to the Success of their latest five year plan. Automobiles built with italian and West German tools and fertilizer manufactured in cooperation with a . Oil firm will be delivered As evidence of the ultimate vindication of the socialist system. Coplay maws satiric executive privilege test Senate lawsuit wrong approach resolutely determine to protect what it conceives to be its own position the Senate watergate committee has filed the first lawsuit in history against the president of the United states of America. It seeks to compel him to produce White House tapes and documents pertaining to the break in at the democratic National Headquarters in june 1972. The senators lawyers Legal scholars and students of government envision the suit As a major test of the doctrine of executive privilege a he right of the chief executive to remain As aloof As he wishes from the other two branches of government. Executive privilege certainly will be tested when the Legal dust of the suit settles but the danger of the route that the Senate is taking to Challenge a fundamental principle of government is far greater than Public awareness of the issues appears to indicate. The suit for example May be the first time in history that the courts have been asked to make a major decision for the . Senate when Clear legislative remedies stir remain unexploited. There is no equivocation in Senate rules and precedent about what it should do if somebody ignores a subpoena that it issues. The Senate should declare the offender guilty of contempt of the Senate and proceed with adjudication of the Issue in Congress itself As the Constitution specifies. Instead the Senate has turned to the courts. Should its Effort realize any Success a beachhead of judicial incursion into legislative Powers will have been established a beachhead that can Only be widened As the years Progress. At this juncture a Point made by the president in his response to the courts subpoena last week is pertinent. He asked if the courts can Force a president to produce documents Why cannot the president in turn require the courts or the Congress to produce secret documents and so Forth All three branches of government Are after All equal. As a practical matter we believe that the president should voluntarily produce whatever information he believes is pertinent to the watergate crisis giving it to the appropriate persons and in the appropriate form. Far More to the Point however we do not believe that it would be healthy for the United states to move too far or too fast in making sweeping changes in the . Constitution a literally via the Back door a while the passions generated by watergate still Are raging. A letters to the editor ? key decisions made % a dear editor i would like to direct this letter to our City officials and As a warning to All other women who drive a car in Copperas Cove by themselves rest assured that badge #10 will find a reason to Stop you fahd give you a ticket.
