PAGE 4 NEWS OF INTEREST - By Merle 'oodham Florala To Lose Trooper Unless Action Is Taker IT HAS BEEN CALLED TO MY ATTENTION that a move ,s underway to move State Trooper Bryon Ziglar to Jack- son, Alabama as of this Monday, February 12. In a conversation with Mayor Joe Evans I was told he had talked to Mr. Harry Pennington, Secretary to Governor Wallace, in connection with this move and was told that Pennington would look into the situation and would talk with E. C. Dothard, presently serving as the head of the Public Safety, State of Alabama• Mayor Evans had spoken to Col. Russell of the Public Safety Department who varified the fact that Ziglar would be transfered to Jackson. It seems that this move has been underway for some time. 1 understand that Crum Foshee, Sheriff Elie Harrell, Harold Wise and others have been trying to head this move off but, as things stand now, they have not done enough. It has been suggested that interested citizens should contact the Governors office in Montgomery an~i use your influence to stop the transfer of our only State Trooper. it is most essential that we keep a State Trooper in our area in order to deter the accident rate. You remember Governor Albert Brewer assigned two State Troopers lAd one car to this area during his administration following a rash of bad accidents in our immediate area. They were Trooper Hubert Anderson, who already has been moved to Opp, and Byron Ziglar, who will be leaving Monday unless you act now to stop this move. Our immediate area has been listed by the State Highway Department as one of the ten most high ~atality risk areas in the State of Alabama so you would think that they could see for themselves how badly a State Trooper is needed here. ALABAMA CATTLEMAN TO MEET WEDNESDAY Morgan Rodgers, president of the Covington County Cattle- men's Association, will lead a large delegation of Covington County cattlemen who will at- tend the 30th Anniversary Meet- ing of the Alabama Cattlemen's Association Wednesday, Febru- ary 14, in Montgomery. E• -H .Wilson, executive vice president of the ACA, said more than 1500 cattlemen and cow- belles from every county in the state are expected to be on hand for the 30th Anniversary cele- bration. Highlights of the meeting will be speeches by Gov. George C. Wallace; Dr. Clifford M. Hardin, Former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and now Vice Chairman of the Board Ralston Purina Co.; and John Trotman, President of the American Na- tional Cattlemen's Association. Other speakers will include Pete Gilmer, Alabama Com- missioner of Agriculture; Dr. Dennis Rouse, Dean & Director of Auburn University School of Agriculture and Experiment Stations; Lt. Gov.

OF A. Pre-registration at the Uni.- versity of Alabama in Bir- mingham (UAB) has prompted a last-minute change in the sche- dule for Graduate School re- gistration for the Spring quar- ter. Registration was originally set for March 22-23, but offi- cials have excluded one day, making the date March 23 only. The recent initiation of pre- registration at UAB, according to officials, sharply cut the us- ual registration crowds, and now the process can be handled in one day. Classes will begin March 26. • and persons wishing to enroll in Gradv ~ Scnoot must have completed applications into the school office by Feb. 16. Interested persons can call the Graduate School at 934- 4361. Written inquiries and compleled applications should be mailed to Graduate School, UAB, University Station, Bir- mingham, Ala. 35294.
