IPd9 ESS ASSOCIATION Legislative action can soon be expected on proposals that will have tremendous impact on our state's public school sys- tem and the young people of Texas for years to come. The recent and controversial report of the Committee on Public School Education is rep- resented in several bills al- ready introduced in both houses of the Legislature. Of primary concern is the proposal to force the consoli- dation of 865 of the state's 1,218 districts, creating 353 districts containing no less than 2,600 students. This would ob- viously eliminate practically every rural and small com- munity school in the state.

Army, Ft. Bliss John Perez, son of Mr. and Mrs. Line Perez of Munday is now serving in the U. S. Army. He is receiving his basic train- ing at Fort Bliss, Texas. tie is a 1968 graduate of Munday High School and was employed in this area until en- tering the Army on March 3. Stan Key, of Texas A&M, Col- lege Station, spent the weekend visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Key and David. Also of great significance is the proposal to institute a sweeping re-evaluation of all real property in Texas, a pro- gram that will, for all practical effect, establish the state board of education as a statewide tax assessor for local school tax- es. That this is aimed directly at the thousands of rural landown- ers and residents in Texas can hardly be doubted, as the com- mittee's report declares: ',The Bartlett study verified the fact that city school districts are being cheated in the distribu- tion of state school aid because county tax rolls favor rural areas." Certianly it should be recog- nized that there are schools, supporting only a handful of students, that should consider consolidation with neighboring districts: certainly it should be recognized that tax inequities, favoring some rural districts, do exist. But we submit that arbitrary elimination of our rural schools and the resultant decay of thou- sands of rural communities, and the many complex problems arising from the establishment of county-wide and multi-county school districts, is not the an- swer. Voluntary consolidation should be encouraged, but mere bigness is no guarantee of qual- ity or economy. We also submit that the tax proposal, that will result in tax bills to our state's rural resi- dents - farmers and ranchers who live on their land and make their living from the land - in- creasing two, three and four times in size, is certainly as inequitable as is now claimed by the committee on behalf of citizens of metropolitan cen- ters. The old saying that two wrongs don*t make a right cer- tainly seems appropriate in this area. It would appear much more logical and practical, then. while encouraging voluntary Mogul Band Potpourri Of Entertainment Hello Americans, this is the Munday tligh School Band ... stand by for news! This may well be the opener heard by the audience Friday night, March 21, as the Mogul Band presents their annual Musicade in "Paul Harvey" style.

CALL IN YOUR LOCALS THE CAUSE OF CHRIST The cause of Christ consists not in the flying of flags, in pompous parades, in the blowing of bugles. It is not to be confounded with fine argument and big speeches. Neither is it to he confused with a sel- fish desire to ferret out the faults and failures of oth- ers, to crush the outcast, to drag the fallen before public gaze. It is not to be identified with an elabor- ate ritual or with magnificent structures. It consists not in honors bestowed by men or institutions of men. The cause of Christ is the cause of truth, love and compassion. It is to be found in the open hand of charity, the life of Purity, the spirit of meekness and the pursuit of peace. It is to he identified with the spirit of evangelism ,_ the unquenchable ur,~e to proclaim the story of redeeming love, in meekness in- structing those who Oppose themselves. The cause of Christ is to be identified with a crown of sharp thorns, with a path stained with tears and blood, with an old rugged cross and With a willingness to die that others may live.
