JVEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 1052 GOPSnuffsOutHotTexas Feud, Jumps Party Lines Seeking Eisenhower Votes JSLTniEVTLLB (AnK.V COURIER By DAVE CHIvAVKN'S SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (.ft—Republicans seeking to cinch Texas' vote 'or Eisenhower hurdled ancient Party lines and snuffed out Uie I hottest inlerna! feud in state GOP history. Their convention here Tuesday named a lull ticket of already nominated Democrats as Republican candidates for state'offices, an action unprecedented in Texas nol- flics. II healed a threatened split by Wanted: Demo For Stevenson Louisiana Group Calis for Volunteers As Electors Quit SHREVEPORT, La. f/p, _ A search was marie today for a Democratic presidential elector who favors the Stevenson - Sparkman N. B. Cjlrslarphen. chairman of the Democratic fetate Central Com„ mittee. lulled a call for volunteers Sfy'to fill t.-.s post vacated by W. Scott Wilkinson ol Shreveport, one of Louisiana's 10 electors. Four of the electors have quit • and two others have asked for time to decide whether they will keep the posts. Carstarphen's appeal came after no logical replacement indicated willingness to succeed Wilkinson. This failure, the party chairman said, was "a. cause of great concern for myself and the central committee." "The position of presidential elector." he continued, "has always been considered in the past to be a most coveted post. Traditionally, it is much sought after." Carslarphcn said Ihere was no limit to the number of volunteers who might apply for the electoral post. The only stipulation is that he must commit himself to cast his ballot In the electoral college for Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois and Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama. Wilkinson and Grove Stafford of Alexandria quit on Aug. 20, the day the State Central Committee placed the names of Stevenson and Sparkman on the ballot under Louisiana's traditional Democratic symbol, the •' rooster. Alvin G. Montgomery of New Orleans resigned as elector Monday but failed to give his reason. State Auditor AlL'son Kolb. (he. fourth elector to quit, resigned yesterday with a blast at Stevenson's opposition to state control of the oil-rich rldelands. Carstarphen said that Neville Levy ^and Edward Pavy had re- queste"d time in which to make up their minds about resigning. Federal law prohibits the destructive giant African land snail from being brought into the country. a scries of conciliatory moves and considerable back-slapping—all in an effort to present a solid front for Eisenhower. Shiver* Nominated Nominated as Democrat-Republicans were Gov. Allan Shivers for governor; Atty. Gen, Price Daniel for u. S. senator; former Rep Martin Dies for IOI-RC. Along with them went the full slate named by the Democrats in July for oilier slate offices. Their names, under a new Texas law. will go on the November election ballot both as Republicans and Democrats unless the individual candidates withdraw. To meet that contingency, the convention passed a resolution em-' powering its State Executive Committee to fill any vacancy that may occur. It already- had that power and'has taken such action many limes in the past. Common! Is Declined At the State Capilol in-Austin Gov. Shivers declined comment on j the GOP action and Daniel said he was "glad the Republicans admit the Democrats have chosen the best candidates." Whether they would consent to their names being on the GOP ballot remained unanswered. Republican leaders were frankly confident that none of the desig- .nated Democrats would withdraw. They poured praise especially on I Daniel and Shivers and passed a i resolution commending them for 1 saying they could not support Democratic presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson. | The convention was a total victory for Jack Porter of' Houston, new national committeeman from Texas, and his Eisenhower forces. The crass-filing strategy was promoted by this group. Lane Is Elected Porter sought and won the election of ALvin H. Lane of Dallas as state Executive Committee chairman, and a new 62-mcmber committee dominated by his friends. But under the compromise which sought to weld the party into a fighting unit for Eisenhower, the new committee included a substantial sprinkling of Ihe S'd Guard. Another concession was to name Carlos Watson of Brownsville general counsel of the executive committee. Watson, obviously outvoted, withdrew from the contest with Lane, whose election as slate chairman was unanimous. - Porter became Texas' committeeman when the National Convention at Chicago voted to seat the Texas' Eisenhower delegation rather than the Taft Old Guard delegation. The Republicans named practically a brand new slale of presidential electors, flatly instructing them to vote for Eisenhower.

Acceplance of the peace pad by The Philippines was blocked in the Senate by the opposition Nacion- ahsta party. At ceremonies during which the two nalions exchanged instruments of ratification, Spruance said the United Slates had wanted re-eslub- hshmenl of reialions with Japan as a prerequisite to creation of a system of regional securily in the Pacific. "However, as the United States doesinot desire that there be any doubt as to. the reality of its intention to regard aggresiion against The Philippines as a menace lo its own peace and safety, r ve been directed to proceed with this exchange of ratifications today " Spruance declared.

These claims have been made bv Gov. Dewey, Sen. George D. Aiken of Vermont and Sen. John j Williams of Delaware. By mid-summer of 1S48, it was quite apparent lhat bumper crops vere being produced. Secretary Brannan came out with statements deprived the government of authority 10 build, erect and own stui-u-c facilities. The fact lhat Ihe 80th Congress look away this storage authority, Brannan claimed, was proof that Republicans would, if given a chance, weaken and dcMiuy farm- aid programs. At the lime, Ihe Republicans largely Ignored the Braiuun campaign. However, Dewey, Aiken anrt Williams have come forward this vear with Hie claim lhal Brannan deliberately took steps to cause farm prices to fall in 1948 with the idea ol trying lo fasten responsibility on the GOP for campaign purposes. They contend there is no evidence lhat there was an actual shortage of storage space that year. They say there arc no reports of any unusual amount of Brain going to waste because of inadequate storage and care. The Republicans also contend that Brannan's talk of a storage shortage, had the effect of depressing prices. They further clnim tlial ho failed lo take oilier steps permitted by law to halt price declines.
