Shoup, assistant Seale, who has been a council man for the past six years, said he decided to run because peo ple insisted that he did. “Most of the people asked me to run because they said the city needed a mayor with more ex perience than Blatchley,” Seale said. Blatchley said Mayor Richard Smith had been doing an excel lent job for Bryan and if elected, he basically plans to continue on the same path- “As a matter of fact,” Blatch ley said, “if Mayor Smith had de cided to stay, I wouldn’t have even run.” Blatchley emphasized the need for improved streets and parks, careful and prudent use of Bryan’s oil and gas royalties and increased opportunities for citizen input in setting annual goals and objectives. “I think there should be grea ter expenditures ... on impro ving our streets,” Blatchley said. “Anyone who has ever driven on any of the streets in Bryan would see how important this is.” Blatchley said the 1983 budget would provide for these improvements. The budget calls for using 50 percent of oil and gas revenues lor street improve ments, 25 percent for develop ment of parks and recreational facilities, 20 percent for drain age systems and 5 percent for contingencies, he said. “By using the oil and gas money in this way,” Blatchley said, “we can effectively meet these goals without increasing taxes.” Seale stressed three main issues. First, he said, it is necessary to upgrade the streets, drainage and sewer system to meet future growth. Second, further de velopment is needed for an athletic complex in conjunction with the schools and third, the city’s police and fire protection should be improved, he said. Seale said I he best way to alle viate drainage problems is for Bryan, College Station and Bra zos County to work together. Seale said he and Blatchley do not differ much on any major issues. “Ron and I are not that diffe rent in our stands on issues,” Seale said. “The difference is that... I have more financial ex perience and I know more about the city in general. I know the city and I know the people." Seale has a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Texas. Blatchley received a master’s degree from Sam Houston State University. Both candidates agreed they do not want to make their elec tion campaigns mud-slinging events. The elections for mayor, city council Place 1, Place 3, Place 4 and Place 5 will be April 2.

Shoup Theory of Machines a Mechanisms since 1977. “A&M has strength because of its students,” Shoup said. He said he has thoroughly enjoyed being here and working with the students in his position as assis tant dean and as a professor. “A&M has changed since I’ve been here,” he said, “and the progress made is incredible. It will be hard to leave the friends I have made here.” But Shoup said he is looking forward to the challenge of being dean of engineering. Florida Atlantic, which has been around for about 20 years, is located in a high-technology area that has lots of opportuni ties and potential, Shoup said. “The school needs to make progress,” Shoup said, “and there is lots of progress to he made.” Florida Atlantic is an upper— division university — only juniors, seniors and graduate students can attend. “It is a fairly new concept and hasn’t been proven to be effec tive or ineffective yet,” he said. He expects that the climate will be different than the one at Texas A&M. Because the students have attended junior colleges or other universities first, he said, they already have established attitudes and study patterns. r |UC nominee is anti-election ^United Press International JL’STIN — One of Gov. ark White’s two Public Utilitv ammission nominees is oppos- Hhe election of PUC commis- Iners, a view White supported tiring his campaign. , Alan 1. ru in, who, along with .

Erwin, 38, said restoring the public’s confidence in utility reg ulation would be his top priority. However, he did not pledge to lower utility rates. “I think the best thing I can promise you is that utility rates will be no higher than is neces sary to maintain the financial in tegrity of the utilities,” he said. * FLU TREATMENT IS HERE A study using the new drug Ribavirin is going on at the Beutel Health Center If you have Flu Symptoms - Fever Muscle Aches Chills - Sore Throat •Come to the health Center within the first 24 hours of illness and ask for the Flu Doctors (day ,, or night-Flu Fighters don’t sleep) You may win a paid vacation (about $112.00) in the Health Center Dr. John Quarles 845-1313 HOCH Apt.
