Government homp on seeks re-election, Most members of the department of government took a step down at the begin- ning of the spring semester, moving out of offices in the Administration Building and into new ones on the first floor of the Don H. Morris Center. At the same time, the department was stepping out of classrooms and into the real world of government and politics. Notable in this area was the chairman of the department, Dr. Gary Thompson, who was in the middle of his second term as a member of the Texas House of Represen- tatives. In addition to his regular duties in Austin in this capacity, Thompson traveled to Washington, D.C., to hear the State of the Union address and attend a briefing about regional councils of government, represented Texas for the third year in a row at a conference of the Southern Regional Education Board and served as a member of the West Central Texas Coun- cil of Governments. Thompson filed in the spring for re- election to a third term in the House and was opposed by Robert English, who studied under Thompson before graduating from ACU in 1971. English, active in the NAACP, said that Thompson was not representing minorities and other groups in Abilene. In the fall, it appeared for a time that if Thompson ran for re-election, he would face his fellow incumbent and friend Rep. Walter Grubbs. When congressional district boundaries were redrawn by the Legislative Redistricting Board, the two Abilenians found themselves paired in a single district. However, Grubbs moved from his Abilene home to nearby Merkel, which lay in the district represented by Bill Heatly, senior member of the House. Ironically, the new boundary lines left Grubbs with more supporters than Heatly had in District 78. Also active outside the classroom was Ray Inzer, assistant professor of govern- ment, who served as an election judge in the precinct that includes most residents on the ACU Hill, and Mel Hailey, assis- tant professor of government, who was in- volved actively in the local Democratic Party. Hailey coordinated an appreciation lun- cheon for Thompson in October at the l50 Government ,. nf' FRONT ROW - Mel Hailey, Ray lnzer. ROW 2 - Gary Thompson, Robert Williams.
