Nancy Betty . . district winner to city, giving her revolu- tionary ideas. By the time she was in her early 20's, she had started women thinking. Was it fair that they couldn't attend public high schools? Was it fair that they couldn't choose any profession they wanted?--No, it wasn't. She stirred people up so much that she was jailed. She was then abused and subjected to a very unfair trail. In 1920, 14 years after her death, women finally received the vote. Who is this notorious woman???--Susan B. Anthony-- Champion of Women's rights. Speaking of Wrights, there were 2 brothers, Orville and Wilbur Wright, who invented the airplane. As youths, they had a dream of being'able to fly like a bird. Through much hard work, they achieved that dream. If these two young brothers hadn't had this dream, we might not have our most efficient means of travel. If our youthful dreams die, what would we have left?? At this very moment there may be a small child with a dream that could change our entire world. .Thera ,as a boy about 70 Betty's winning speech follows. Youth-America's Strength By NANCY BETrY Youth is an extremely important factor in the strength of America. If it weren't for youth, America Wouldn't be where it is today. Consider, for example, Abe Lincoln. He started working his way up the ladder of success at a very young age, and I do mean working When he was just a small )y, he had a job, and he spent the money he earned on books. Instead of eating by candlelight with some Ptty girl, he spent his time studying by candlelight. Abe was e very dedicated youth who worke( hard and became SUccessful He is most remem- bered as OUl  16th president, the president who freed our slaves. Also living during the 1800's was another boy who did much for our nation. His name was Tom Edison. He was one of the most curious boys of all time. .When he was still very young, he asked many questions. How oes a hen hatch chickens? What makes birds fly? Why does water put out a fire? And many others. Even his well- educated mother couldn't answer most of his questions. If no one could answer his he would try to get answers by experiments. once talked his best friend sitting on some goose eggs see ff they would hatch. Tom all sorts of risks to prove ideas. He worked hard all his boyhood, and ended up inventing the basis for much of our communication and entertainment Motion picture devices, light "bulbs, telephone transmitters, and the phono- graph are a few examples. Just think, if Tom hadn't started at experimenting with ideas, there might not be lights, movies, tele- or stereos. The world the teenager wou!d crumble. Of COurse, it wasn t only men ho did things for our nation. here was a girl in the mid-1800,s who was born into a World that discriminated against women. While she was ust a little girl, she decided to change that fact and was Willing to work hard to make her ideas come true. Inspired by two older women, she traveled from city years ago who led us to much of the electronics of today. His name was Lee Deforest. As a youth, current, wires, and things of that sort interested him. He and his father spent many long hours working together, and Lee eventually invented a triode vacuum tube, called an audion, which was the most valuable discovery in the early history of electronics. Without his discovery, we wouldn't have nany of the conveniences that we have today. Naturally, our young people have been more than just famous inventors. Alvin C. York, a youth during World War I, was greatly outnumber- ed in battle. Still, he single- handedly caused the death of 20 Germans and then forced 132 others to surrender. Marshall Ferdinand Foch called it "the greatest thing accomplished by any private." York received a Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic action. It is good that Congress was so suppor- tive towards him, because the youth are the adults of tomorrow and we must have adults willing to risk and to sacrifice for our great country. Our young people have an enormous potential. If we encourage our youth, this potential can come shining through. All of the teenagers and young adults I have mentioned are just a few of the many youths who have sup- ported the effective form of government that we have today. The young are definitely one of the keys to our democracy. By encouraging them, we will also build up their self- confidence, which is a very important factor in making them strong, because if the young believe in themselves, their feelings will be contagious among their peers, and ff we all work together, the world will turn out to be a much better place. ;on, F 'ate, W :r, Bar )orothy,i .pf, Ho 11, Mrs,' I 3ads, St County empl(Dyment service completes fourth The Burnet County Employ- ment Clearing House has completed four years of service to Burnet County.

A large number of members and guests were present, including both Burner County Members, Alex Creagh of Donall Estates and Lorenz Murphy of Burner. The agenda was lengthy and percipitated much discussion. This session was considering funding requests from the ten counties in this District. These counties are - Bastrop, Blanco, Burner, CaldweU. Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson Counties. Each county has different needs. As everyone is aware, all Government funding has been cut back severely, and some badly needed services were eliminated. The outstanding needs seemed to be in the Nutrition, Health Care and Transportation areas. There is a need for more funds at the Referral Service Department in order to better acquaint people with what services are available to them. Such as Federal and State programs to aid people 60 years of age and older. Betty Larue is now running this service in Austin.

Most Texas homes have the potential for air infiltration in one hours time equal to 2 or 4 times the total volume of their interiors. For example, let's take the case of a standard home 1,580 square feet with a ceiling height of 8 feet. The air infiltration for a single day would be a total of 606,720 cubic feet of air which is more cubic feet of air than it would take to fill 3 Goodyear blimps. We want to help you solve your home energy problems by doing a home energy audit. We'll recommend improvements to reduce the air infiltration in your home and save you money.
