Outline of Plans
For Aged Home
Herbert G. Kenagy, associate
professor in the Division of Busi
ness Administration, spoke to the
College Station Lions Club Mon
day on plans to raise funds for a
proposed $1 million home for the
aging to be constructed in Bryan.
Kenagy is now acting as advisor
to the Texas Conference for the
Methodist Church, which is back
ing the proposal for the new home.
He gave his talk at the club’s
weekly luncheon meeting in the
Assembly Room of the Memorial
Student Center.
He explained to the club that
the Methodist Church has offered
i.o donate $900,000 to the construc
tion of a home for the aging, if
r.itizens of Brazos County can raise
Kenagy said the proposed name
for the home is The Community
for Senior Citizens and might be
constructed on Villa Maria Road,
near the Bryan County Club.
“The Community for Senior Cit
izens will house approximately 100
persons,” Kenagy said. “It will
be a non-denominational home and
will not be run on strictly a chari
table basis,” he said.
He explained that aging persons
housed in the home would pay by
the month to live there. The home
will be entirely self-sufficient af
ter it is built, he added.
“A campaign to raise $100,000
will begin in Brazos County at the
beginning of May,” said Kenagy.
“If we do the job right, we will
have the finest home of its type in
Texas,” he said.

We build better roads. We retain traffic engineers to make them safer. We pass traffic laws—hire officers to
enforce them. Then—we junk all these safeguards by speeding, passing lights, ignoring warning signs. Does
this make any sense? Not when such law violations breed accidents that injure and maim thousands daily! The
remedy? Drive safely—drive lawfully. Where traffic laws are strictly obeyed, accidents go down!
Last year, traffic accidents injured 1,400,000—dis
abled them beyond the day of the accident. Millions
more suffered the pain and misery of "minor” injuries.
150,000 were children, 5 to 14. GfjCS
• wSS? • Last year, traffic accidents killed nearly 38,000! 2,500 j
were children of grammar school age. And this year an Ngij ^
st&s INCREASE in deaths is threatened!
How long must this go on? YOU-the men and women
behind the wheel—can answer this. Because YOU are
the No. 1 cause!
