DWI suspect held in trooper's death
"We have our own insect control... Marmaduke barks at the house and they all disappear!"
MCALLEN (AP) -Texas law enforcement officials assembled here today for the funeral of a Department of Public Safety trooper commended for his efforts against drunk drivers who was killed allegedly by a drunken motorist.
DPS patrolman Ernesto Alanis died Sunday when a car traveling on the wrong side of the road struck him as he attempted to question another driver suspected of being drunk.
Alanis, 26, set a “career goal” to “get the drunks off the road,” DPS Spokesman Larry Todd said.
Salvador Sarsen Luna, 36, of Edinburg was charged Monday with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the case. A law enforcement official who asked not to be named said Luna failed a breath test designed to determine if a person is intoxicated.

Edcouch set bond at $25,000. Luna remained in the Hidalgo County jail.
Luna was not represented by an attorney when he appeared before Gutierrez and an acting supervisor at the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department said he had no record that a lawyer had been to see Luna Monday.
Authorities said Alanis was struck by Luna’s car after Alanis had pulled over another car whose driver was suspected of drunken driving. Alanis was pronounced dead on arrival at Edinburg Hospital, a spokesman said.

stopped car passed an intoxication test and was released after giving investigators details of the accident, said Todd.
DPS Sgt. Stan Clark of McAllen said investigators intend to prove Luna “was driving a motor vehicle, that he was under the influence of an intoxicating beverage and that a person was killed.”
"We have scientific evidence" to back up the element of driving while intoxicated," Clark said.
Clark, the investigating officer in the case, said authorities could have requested an additional charge of
driving while intoxicated against Luna.
But, he said, “We don’t stack charges like that.”
Involuntary manslaughter, a third-degree felony
punishable by a maximum penalty of IO years in prison and a $5,000 fine, is the “most serious offense,” said Clark. “It would be senseless to file on him for both.”
A conviction of first offense driving while intoxicated is a Class B misdemeanor, Clark said.
“We’ve got what we think is a good case" for involuntary in a ii -slaughter, Clark said. “We’ve got all the

NEW YOKE (AP) - When peace finally came to MASH, the surgeons were in the operating room, where CBS at the beginning ll years ago didn't think a situation comedy should ever be
The final episode of MASH number 251 of the hit parade — was true to the ambition of the first one and all of the others in between. It made us laugh, it made us sad, and it made us feel.
This wasn't Hogan's Heroes. MAS H dealt honestly and realistically with the Korean War, its consequences and the sheer irrationality of surgeons saving lives just so they could hi* splattered again.
As Col. Henry Blake once said on M ASH, “Rule No. I is young men die." and "Rule No. 2 is doctors can’t change rule No. I."
So, on Monday night, the finale began with Hawkeye Pierce (Alan Alda), the surgeon with the toughest shell, slightly cracked in a mental hospital. He had suffered a nervous breakdown.
Hawkeye and a bus full of MASH colleagues and South Koreans returning from an outing at the beach were trying to keep the enemy from discovering them. A baby in the bus was crying, and Hawkeye forcefully told the mother to keep the kid quiet Scared out of her mind, she strangled her own child Hawkeye, who had heroically saved many lives, was devastated by the responsibility of losing this one Ha wkye’s psychological debilitation and gradual recovery were the major threads running throughout the 2‘z-hour final program which became a national event, along with "Who Shot JR?" segment on Dallas, the final episode of The Fugitive, and Roots.
Hawkeye and the six other regulars survived the war, but one essence of M A S H has been that it leaves scars, and this episode certainly did Father Muleahy (Wiliam Christopher), the gentle, soothing padre, lost most of his hearing when a bomb exploded while he was rescuing enemy prisoners of war.
The 4077th had become an artillery target because an American lank was stuck there, with on-high orders to stay put. Did MASH ever suggest that war made sense Finally, Hawkeye, well enough to have returned to the camp, drove the tank away to the M-A-S-H suburbs. Was that the action of a sane or an insame man? The separating line had never been all that clear in M A S H.
SE Texas due new area code
DALLAS (AP) — Houston and about 30 nearby towns will keep the “713" area code, but longdistance callers to 180 other towns in East and Southeast Texas will have to use a different number on March 19.
Beaumont and Galveston are among the cities served by Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. that will get a new area code, 409, company spokesman Herb Bowen said Monday. The change is necessary because of record growth, Bowen added
All customers in both the 713 and 409 areas will keep their same seven-digit local number. For three months after the conversion to the new code, calls incorrectly placed to the 713 code will be transferred automatically to the 409 code, Bowen said.
Among the cities that will change to the 409 code are Angleton, Bay City, Beaumont, Brenham, Bryan-College Station, Conroe, Crockett, Diboll, El Campo, Freeport, Galveston, Hearne, Kountze, La Marque, Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Nederland, Orange, Port Arthur, Port Neches, Schulenburg, Silsbee and Texas City.
evidence to prove it in court and we are prepared to do so."
The case will be presented to a grand jury to see if other charges are warranted, Todd said.
Alanis had been commended three times for outstanding DWI enforcement efforts in the lower Rio Grande Valley.
“It was very unusual for a trooper to have three commendations in a short time like that," Todd said. "He had really been working to get the drunks off the road.
"That was his career goal, to work on DWI enforcement. And he was very good at it," Todd said.
“It’s ironic he gets hit by one,” Clark said.
Alanis was born in San Juan, Texas, and graduated from the DPS academy in September 1978. He transfered from Beeville to the Valley so he could complete a college degree at Pan American University in Edinburg, Todd said.
He is survived by a wife and two children.

"I don’t know why I always have to take out the trash." Hawkeye said.
Muj. Charles Winchester iDavid Ogden Stters i, who used classical music as a release and refuge during the war said it was now a tormenting reminder.
He had become attached to enemy POW musicians and was teaching them to play Mozart. The universality of Mozart's language survived here; the POWs did not, in yet another example of senseless killings

Col. Sherman Potter i Harry Morgan I, w ho rode out of camp on his favorite horse, left with the total respect of his troops. Hawkeye and B J Hunmcutt gave hun their rarest tribute: they saluted Potter was looking forward to a semi-retirement as a country doctor.

Hawkeye was headed back there to practice leisurely medicine He had seen enough action in Korea. In symbolic contrast to tile opening of M A S H in which helicopters land with the incoming wounded, Hawkeye's helicopter was going in the opposite direction. Wherever that was, it was bound to be a safer, saner place.
As the helicopter hovered over the Korean country side, it looker greener than it had ever looked before. There also was a simple message on tike ground engraved in stone from B J. to Hawkeye, and from MASH to its millions of faithful fans: “Goodbye."
