u . .itrti«i : , '!' VV O Texas Leaders In Battle For Party Control FORT WORTH, Tex. UV-Tc.vas' three top Democrats squared oft .today in another^ round of the three-year-old.hit and run scuffle for control of the Texas Democratic vote. Recent moves to palch up hurl feelings between the feuding factions of the party apparently died with the last rose of summer. Last night the rafters of an exhibit building at the exposition grounds here shivered from the lusty yells of 2,200 partisans who approved a show of power pul on by House Speaker Sam Raybiirn and Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson. . ' . "If Eisenhower doesn't run it doesn't make any difference who the Republicans run for president. We are going to defeat them anyhow," said Rayburn in. what he called his only political talk in Texas this year. Earlier yesterday, Gov. Allan Shivers, tilular head of the state party who has drawn the glares of Rayburn and Johnson since he swung the parly machinery for Eisenhower in 1952, announced a new campaign to strengthen his standing. He said he would travel throughout the nation urging Democrats to nominate "a man -who is moderate in his views and does not represent any extreme." Hayburn was guesl of honor last night at a dinner where an enthusiastic crowd paid $5 each /or barbecue, beans and two hours of fast-paced polities. Shivers name was never mentioned, although it was apparent that a number of remarks were aimed in his direction. "I am'here without any handles on my politics," Kayburn told.the crowd. "I'm a' Democrat and that's all, whether you spell it with a big or little D." He let the applause die down then raised his voice and spoke straight into a television camera: "And I'm not a Democrat 18 months of the two years then something else the six months v,'hcn voting comes up." Jersey Alert Held Success TRENTON, N. J. 1/B-rAn official "well done" was stamped today on New Jersey's first statewide mobilization of Civil Defense forces and National Guard units following an air raid alert. When the siren sounded at 6 p.m. yesterday—during the commuter • traffic rush period—the entire populace scurried for shelter. Traffic halted, and bridges and tunnels linking this state to New York . and Pennsylvania were closed during the 10-minute lest.

Uv-An insurance .ex- ecuiive said today that insurance covered- only'5 to 10 per cent of the' estimated 1 billion dollars in losses in the August floods in the Northeast.. Alexander Ellis Jr.; partner in the insurance firm of Fairfield & Ellis of Boston, made the eslimale in a prepared address to the American Management Assn.'s fall insurance conference. Ellis 'reported that most of the Question, insurance claims resulting from the 1 flood will involve personal properly. "Fixed properly, tha ings, machinery and is the most susceptible to water damage and to this day remains practically uninsurable with respect to flood loss." Ellis said. He added that insurance rates for such coverage is '.'prohibitive." 'Even if the cost of flood insurance were reasonable," he said, "experience has indicated that only those whose properties are exposed to the -possibility of. flood damage would buy it. There is no way by which the tolal risk may be reduced by spreading it over a large number of properties.' Ellis advocated government flood control as the "most feasible and logical method of meeting flood problems." Soviet-Seeks Arms Debate UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. W-V. V.
