Page 4 THE BATTALION Wednesday, February 29, 1996 News of the World Center By The ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN—The Daily Texan, student publication at the University of Texas was ordered to withhold from yester day’s publication an editorial on political consequences of the veto of the Natural Gas Harris Bill. The editorial was ordered withheld by Harrell Lee, ed itorial director of Texas Student Publications, and Dr. De- Witt Reddick, acting director of the School of Journalism. Yesterday’s development was the latest in a growing controversy between Willie Morris, student editor, and the University Board of Regents over Morris’ presentation of editorial views. Morris has accused the regents of trying to impose censorship. A section of the editorial page was left blank. Dr. Reddick said yesterday that the editorial “was a continuation of a practice that the Board of Student Publi cations in its policies had said should not be followed. It was a presentation of sweeping statements that were not sub stantiated by a basis of fact and a continuation of one par ticular point of view the Texan has been following without the presentation of any diverse points of view.” In the editorial Morris wrote that by the veto of the Harris bill the President “served the best interest of the nation.” The bill sought to exempt independent gas producers from federal price fixing authority and had strong support in Texas.

Unlicensed Dogs Being Picked Up City authorities are now picking up unlicensed dogs found in the city limits, according to Ran Bos well, city managei\ “We have picked up 21 dogs since last Friday,” Boswell said. “We keep a dog for 48 hours be- fox-e we destroy it.” Licenses have been issued to 215 dogs so far, a drop from 239 at this time last year, Boswell added. “Anyone wishing to reclaim a dog ox- get one may do so by pay ing the city dog tax at the City Hall, and having him vaccinated. If you’re like most Americans, you’re earning more now than ever before. But if you’re like a lot of us, you’re having a tough time trying to hang on to this extra money. What comes easy—seems to go just as easily. Spending a little too freely and going a little too far into debt may be tempting, but it certainly isn’t wise. Actually, now is the best oppor tunity you’ll ever have save. What most of us need is a simple, sys tematic savings plan—one that will work automatically and pay off with guaranteed results. Your Government has provided just such a plan. And over 40 million Americans are already cashing in on it. 'Why don’t you join them? Sign up for U. S. Series E Savings Bonds on the Payroll Savings Plan where you work. Or buy Bonds reg ularly where you bank. As little as $18.75 a month invested in Savings Bonds will give you a cash backlog of $1,182.60 in just 5 years— $2,456.70 in 9 years and 8 months. There are three good reasons why U. S. Savings Bonds should be part of every investment program. They're safe—your principal is never subject to market fluctuation. They're sure—Bonds pay an average of 3% per year, compounded semiannually when held to maturity. They're liquid—you can always cash them, if you have to, after you’ve held them for 2 months. Treasury Secretary Humphrey recently said, “The continued success of our econ omy depends not only upon the Govern ment, but upon the efforts of all the people trying to do a little more for them selves and their loved ones. It is the sum total of all these individual efforts that makes our system superior to anything known in this world before.” Let’s apply his words to our private affairs. And the best thing that you can do for your loved ones is to buy wisely—save sensibly—and preserve our American pros-; perity for them! Branson Attends Di\ R. E.
