Donations Needed- March 17 Trip set for Teams and Pep Club The Perkins-Tryon basket- ball team and pep club trip to Oklahoma City is set for March 17. While in the city we will be dribbling to Shotgun Sam's for pizza and then hustling on to the Ice Chalet for an evening of ice skating before boarding the bus to Perkins for a late snack in the lunchroom. While there is no charge for the kids, any parent wishing to attend are welcome at $2.50 for pizza and $2.50 for skating. There is no charge for spectators at the Ice Chalet. Any parent interested in going or helping with the trip contact: Ken C1ose-547-2677 on your phone or "cowchip" on your C.B. The cost of taking 60 kids is $300. To make the financing of the trip a community effort, we are attempting to get $5.00 from 60 different businesses or individuals and we'll accept no more than $10.00 per person. Anyone wishing to help can leave donation to "The Perkins-Tryon Basketball Fund" with Margie Jarvis at the Payne County Bank, or call Ken close and we will pick it up anywhere in the world. Any left over money will be in the Perkins-Tryon athletic fund to help finance future trips or after game meals, or other on the road trips for football, basketball, baseball, or track teams.

However, production will not increase this fast if long-term utility de- mand is uncertain and if major environmental and transporta- tion issues are not resolved.  * EARLY BIRD SALE 28"Tilling Width 5.0 HP Bdggs & Strstton Engine Swing.away transporlwheeis Horizonlalsheft Ultrsgeer Trsnemlssion Adjustable Handle Height Reversing Model 1349 SAVES70 OLSON'S HARDWARE 547-2472 I 1 !

But those extremes, like all speculation as to its appli- cation, would have to be enacted into law by congress or state legislatures. Tho ERA provides that women and men be equal under the law. It does not say they are the same, only that the law cannot treat them differently solely because of their sex. ERA applies to government action, but not to private action. ERA adoption failed in three earlier sessions. Monday it was scheduled for release by a house committee. Opponents are trying to rush a quick vote this week. They are tired of the heat they are getting from both sides. Also, if they can beat it, ERA is dead until a new legislature convenes in ]979. Defeat in Oklahoma could wreck ERA nationally since we are one of four states considered "most likely" to adopt. Removing the sales tax on gas and electric bills has set off opposition by officials in several cities and towns. They say they cannot afford the revenue lost from local sales taxes. Officials of the State Department of Insti- tutions and Rehabilitative Services are gloomy over an estimated $20 million loss on the sales tax funds they receive. Sen. Pres. Gone Howard is trying to calm their fears. He proposes the state take over maintenance of state and federal highways through cities and towns. That would more than make up for the loss. DIgS would receive a direct appropriation from the greatly increased tax Howard proposes on natural gas at the wellhead. Advertising of eyeglasses stands a 6-5 chance of passage by a house committee this week. Several bills have been introduced in both the house and senate to repeal the ban on eyeglass ads. All but one have gone to committees made up of members unlikely to approve them. Opponents fear these bills getting before either body where a record vote would be taken. Optometrts thb so.ton are pushing a bill to allow them to dispense drugs and touch the eyes in their examination. Sponsors are Morgan in the house, Berrong in the senate. Doc Comments -- GOING INTO BUSINESS SEMINAR SET Individuals planning to go into business for themselves or those owning new businesses have been invited to attend a workshop for small business people to be held at Central Tech on March 17, 1977. This one-day seminar will be conducted in the Seminar Center with sessions beginn- ing at 8:00 a.m. and concluding at 5:00 p.m. "If you are thinking about going into business, many factors must be considered. Too often the same mistakes are made by new businesses and failure is the result. At this workshop, we will teach the fundamentals about business ownership," said Benny Vanatta, Director, Industrial and Adult Educa- tion, who is coordinating the workshop. Guest speakers will dis- cuss such topics as basic considerations in starting your business, sources of capital, planning and organi- zation, business regulations, taxes and insurance obliga- tions, keeping business records, sales and promotion and information, self-train- ing and assistance. The workshop is being co-sponsored by Central Tech, Oklahoma State De- partment of Vocational and Technical Education, Inter- nal Revenue Service, Okla. homa Bankers Association and the Small Business Administration. Tuition for the course is $25 and includes all material, supp- lies and lunch. Persons desiring addi- tional information should contact Central Tech, Becky Hensely, 352-2553.

" --Justice Louis Brandeis Steam Engine on Dead Center The Federal Forces are in a "hangup" situation over the energy crisis and acts like a steam engine on dead center. Before we can accomplish anything, we must get off dead center in order that the machine will proceed under it's own power. We are trying to solve our troubles by seeking "input" from many angles. The world "input" has been overworked since it has been in the dictionary less than a decade and was coined for measurement of BTU's required for heating in order to obtain the required amount of heat for a given purpose known as "output" in BTU's. The input is always more than the output and denotes loss in energy in transfer of said heat. President Carter's effort to gain input by many mea- sures are being completely ignored by the Federal Bureaucracy, especially by the Federal Energy Com- mission. By their mysterious and complicated calcuhtions they have decided that our oil men are allowed to overcharge for their products and have ordered a rollback of 20% cutback in certain petroleum products. Now selling for an average of $11.50 per barrel with much of Oklahoma's old oil bringing only $5.33 a barrel with a free market value of $14.15, a level allowed only for stripper well production. The system of controlling prices is of course to hold down the price the consumer pays for petroleum products. These low prices have resulted in a slow down in search and find of new production with a greater dependency on imported high priced oil benefitting foreign producers with bil- lions of dolhrs going out of the country that should be used in increasing our home supply. The FEA in unwilling for our companies to receive the same price being paid to foreign producers. Oil com- panies would be willing to an excess profit tax and to put excess down on feed to a dairy herd and dividing the reduced supply to an ever growing consumer market. We need less control over the energy suppliers and more production from rest- ricted deposits. Our own Governor, David Boren says the Federal Energy Commission's action is terrible. If we are to have an ample supply there must be some changes made in both theory and practice. Well we should have some action down at the Capitol this week on ERA.

My old friend from the Freedom Hills, Colonel Archie Lee of the Red Bay News reports that it's March now and many things are coming to life. He says it's hard to sit still and concentrate on "What's half of two-thirds" when the birds are returning and picking out places for their nest and the daffodils pushing through the ground. It's just time to sit on the top rail of a fence or the bottom of a tree and just watch things bend in the wind. I would just guess that "ale Arch" is tuning up his ancient dulcimore for an old timer's festival of good old country boy music and gadgets of yesteryear. On second thought, it may be a "Dulcimer".

The editor writes in "An Item More"...The rain stopped long enough for the big parade Saturday and then obligingly started again. Almost phenomenal , we would say. About 45 minutes before the parade started it let up, and the sun came out, then about 10 minutes after the parade was over and the students were back in rehearsal, it started again. Weekend bargains at Del-Mar's included Ground Beef at 33c pound. Cain's coffee was 95c pound. Hi-Note Tuna, 2 cans for 29c, and Fresh Country Eggs, 2 dozen for 47c. O. E.
