By LAURA RUTHERFORD City Reporter Under certain conditions, former Bryan city employees may now reapply for city jobs before a re quired waiting period is over. Previously, the city manager could not rehire an employee for 24 months following termination. City Manager Ernest Clark said this pre vented employees from quitting to collect their retirement pay, waiting a short period of time and then reap plying for employment. These former employees will now be allowed to apply for jobs in under staffed departments for a specified period of time, Clark said. He said he doesn’t foresee the same problems because the em ployee will not know when or if this will happen to a department. The change was made by the Bryan City Council during their meeting Monday night. Bryan now has about 50 job open ings and a shortage of firemen and waste water treatment operators, Clark said after the meeting. In a special meeting, John Cul pepper asked Bryan to pay half the cost of lining and covering the creek running behind the Manor East INFO BOOTH ( STUDENT CNTR SENIORS/GRADS: Sign up NOW at Caraar Placamant for Intar- vlawt, Ruddar Twr All stud for the these v\ the act dures f in 4 p.rr ■ REOU IN TH€ pence conns a Puc*c ServY* of TN* Newacaoer g Tht Ad erfrang Ccxnc* Open Thurs. till 8 Imported coffees 41 varieties Teas-bulk & bag over 150 varieties Munchies European Sc domestic MSC CEPHEID VARIABLE'S AGGIECON XI PHIORITEAS I BUNDS 01 Git 1-6IVMG (HHHHBBB 3609 Place E. 29th - Bryan .•ttJV Throughout history he has filled the hearts of men with terror, and ' hearts of women with desire. *1 March 27-30 KRACUIA w % 12 feature films Daytime films Star Trek bloopers Dealer's room Art Display A UNIVERSAL PICTURE * PAN A VISION* © 1979 IJNIvrHSAl CITV STuOlOS »NC pjj All RIGHTS RESERVED I^T*** 7 $4 with TAMIL ID LSAT• MCAT • GRE GRE PSYCH • GRE BIO GMAT • DAT • 0CAT • PCAT VAT • MAT • SAT • TOEFL NAT L MED BDS ECFMG • FLEX • VQE NDB • NPB I • NLE KAPLAN EDUCATIONAL CENTER Test Preparation Specialists Since 1938 CLASSES START APRIL 9 IN PREPARATION FOR JUNE 28 EXAM 707 Texas Ave., Suite 301C, C.s.

Culpepper plans to build a store on the property and the creek runs through the planned parking lot area. The culvert must be built using a multiple-box type construction un like anything the city has ever built before, City Engineer A. H. Wider said. Culpepper said a culvert lined only on the sides and bottom would cost $300,000 but a multiple-box type culvert will cost double. Culpepper said advantages to the city would include increased proper ty taxes for the now vacant land and sales tax from the future business. Culpepper said he would pay for the culvert top if funds were not immediately available and Bryan could repay him from the business’s total tax revenue. Clark said Bryan could determine a reasonable formula for repayment from the increase in sales tax only. The city council passed over a re solution for improvement to Baylor, Dean, Military and SaunJin Streets. Hubert Nelson, director of pi ning and traffic said his depart® needed to re-evaluate the assr ment of costs for the streets. In the past, Bryan required I resident to pay for part of the i provements to streets running front of their property, Nelsons: after the meeting. For imprint velopment (HUD) funds, Bryan ly required the resident to pay tli cost of the curb. Prairie View begins work on radio station By RICHARD OLIVER Staff Writer After nearly 13 years of planning and development. Prairie View A&M University’s new radio station is finally under construction. The station, which was first ex pected to open in May, 1979, has been continually plagued by set backs such as delays in construction and finding a staff to operate the sta tion. Dr. C.A. Wood, head of the publi cations department at Prairie View A&M, said the station would be on the air by October in conjunction with the opening of a new communi cations building, the Hilliard Com munications Center. “It’s an old building which is being renovated to house an entire com munications center,” he said. “It will have the radio station and two TV studios. We now have the physical facilities, we just have to get on the nar 113 MERK hav AMEB will Cer PRE-1V Hea pro( schc Prairie View’s station, KPVU, is slated to be non-commercial and op erate on an FM frequency of 91.3. Power will be 10,000 watts. Prairie View received a two-year $125,000 grant from the Health, Education and Welfare Department on Jan. 3, 1978, and was given until Jan. 3, 1980 to get the station on the air. The school was required to match the grant with $44,351. Due to the delays, Prairie View has been given a one-year extension by HEW to open the station. The original estimated cost of con- struction for the station was $175,000, but Dr. Shirley Stapa head of the department of comm: cations for the university, said had no idea what the cost wouldli now. “I don’t know what the eke will cost, ” she said. "We havedk: sed furnishings for the fiew builds with officials at Texas A&M link sity ... and we hope to be in theai! late October.’’ Stapes said although the newta munications center willhave!i| television studios, they would used striedy for classroom instri tion and would not house actual lei vision programming. /AHEM!!! ^ Pre Med/Pre Dent Society Date Tues.
