Call Red Cross now
for a blood donor
By LAURA RUTHERFORD
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

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
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.

Prairie View begins
work on radio station
By RICHARD OLIVER
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
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
“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

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
“I don’t know what the eke
will cost, ” she said. "We havedk:
