Wilson added that he was “not upset” that the CIA secretly supplied approximately $60 million to the African nation. Senator Bentsen has asked the Interior Department to declare certain areas to be included in the Big Thicket National Reserve as “threatened.” Such a designation would block loggers from destroying those areas before the government buys them. Remember Sanguine, the under ground communications system that the Navy was so hot to put in Central Texas a few years ago? Well, Sen. Gaylord Nelson said the Navy repressed for two years “because it contains the very first scientific evidence that Sanguine would indeed have an adverse environmental impact.” The report said that low frequency radiation from the Sanguine grid might affect human blood and possibly increase the chances of heart disease. Because of citizen protests and adverse publicity, the Sanguine project was reduced from a 22,000 square mile underground communications network to a 2,500 square mile above-ground antenna grid. The Navy calls the new scheme “Seafarer” and a site has yet to be chosen for it. Anonymous fliers are being distributed charging the bill will “sovietize” American children and turn child-rearing over to the government. Congressional leaders have charged that smear, deception and “the big lie” are being used in the campaign against the bill. A Houston Chronicle reporter tried to run down the origin of anti-Child Services fliers circulating there. He traced one back to Richard Burson, retired director of a Kansas Bible camp. Burson reportedly based his letter on a three-page pamphlet his brother-in-law’s sister received at a revival meeting in Missouri. U.S. Rep. John Young of Corpus says he has received more mail about the Child Services Act than any topic ever, except busing and gun control. Young says he hasn’t studied the bill because he is busy with “more pressing matters” and that the fliers distributed against it “do have the overtone of propaganda.” Nevertheless, he is planning on voting against the bill since, “I just assume that there must be some basis for what they’re saying or they wouldn’t have printed the drastic things they have.” The Fort Worth police department hasn’t had much luck lately. First there was the tacky business involving six detectives in the auto theft division, who were helping plan car thefts and then driving the stolen cars themselves. When Chief T. S. Walls heard allegations about what the six detectives were up to, he cleverly transferred them to other departments. Then in early December a Fort Worth police officer Henry Mailloux was murdered, and that prompted a statewide manhunt and an understandable edginess among the cops. So the very next night, one Jack Hasty was frantically driving his very pregnant wife to the hospital. Hasty ran a red light in the course of getting to his sister’s house, where he planned to drop off his two-year-old before taking his wife on to the hospital. A cop’ car followed with red light flashing, and when Hasty got to his sister’s, he yelled out of his pick-up window to the approaching cops, “My wife’s pregnant! Please help me!” Instead a cop grabbed him by his long hair, snatched him out of the truck and slammed him against the squad car. While he was being shaken and slammed against the car, Hasty says the cop reminded him of Mailloux’s murder and told him, “We aren’t going to take any more off anybody. We just love to get hold of punks like you.” Mrs. Hasty and her sister-in-law stood there crying, other family members crowded around, and six other squad cars arrived. None of the police bothered to take Mrs. Hasty on to the hospital. The baby was born on the living room couch as Hasty was being handcuffed, shoved into the back of the squad car and taken off to jail. The baby was fine: a seven-pound boy. 411th 41110 rs S1 January 16, 1976 PCV hearings The Texas Air Control Board has de cided to start holding public hearings on contested permits to build new industrial facilities that could pollute the air. The first such permit hearing this month will be on Tenneco Chemical’s application to expand Pasadena. The upper Texas coast is rapidly becoming the PCV manufacturing center of the world. The manufacture of the chemical, which is the basic building block of thousands of plastic products, has been discovered to be very dangerous for factory workers. Worldwide, about 60 deaths from a rare liver cancer have been traced to proximity to PCV in factories. In addition to the Tenneco application for plant expansion, Shintech, Inc., in Freeport wants to make its plant bigger, and Diamond Shamrock Corp. has applied for a construction permit for a plant which will produce up to one billion pounds of vinyl chloride a year. Diamond got a permit in November to operate a little ol’ PCV plant with a 200-millionpound-a-year capacity. Another one of those peculiar right wing campaigns that sprout suddenly like mushrooms seems to be developing. This time it’s against the Family and Child Services Act of 1975, which calls for a $1.85 billion, three-year program to expand daycare services and provide a variety of medical, nutritional and counselling services for children.
