THURSDAY/ AUGUST 28, 1952 Texas Governor Hints Ike's Name May Be on Ticket Democratic Slate May Include GOP, . Stevenson Elsewhere AUSTIN, Tex. UP) — Texans had » hint from their governor today that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's pJiHtno might IK placed on the state • Democratic party's ticket as a presidential nominee. Oov. Allan Shivers Indicated such a possibility in a radio address last night In which he said twelands oil was not the only issue on which he based a decision not to vote personally for Goi'. Adlat Stevenson, Democratic nominee. Shivers repeated previous attacks o" what he called "Trumanlsm." He said he thought Stevenson "a better man than Truman" and would if elected give a better administration. "Vet his views on Texas tidelands are an indication that he would continue to hold the views and countenance the policies that Truman and people around Truman have established," Shivers said. Same Package "Oscar Giving (federal social security administrator) and his views on socialized medicine are rolled up In the same package, along with a continuation of a stalemated foreign Policy, a continuation of the highest, spending and highest taxation In the history of this nation and ** continuation of central govern- «(f.ient powers concentrated In Washl ington," Shivers said. "Those who have seized the great Democratic party," the governor continued, "have misused it. absorbed it and changed Its history, its policies and its traditions. He asked Texans to. tell him what they want to do as citizens. 'How* do you want to vote?" he asked. State Ally. Gen. Price Daniel, Democratic nominee for U. S. Senate to succeed Sen. Tom Connally. Is among many Texas Democrats who have recently written Shivers asking for a double set of Democratic presidential electors. One group would be those pledged to Stevenson. Shivers predicted the Slate Democratic Convention in Amarillo Sept, 8 would "make such arrangements as you people of Texas desire to be made." He hinted that Eisenhower's name might be put on the Texas Democratic ticket with Stevenson's name on the national party ticket. Choice Is a Right "Their right to vote for the candidate of their choice is a basic vfreeclom of the people," he said V, Shivers first expressed opposition to the Stevenson candidacy Jast week when the Illinois governor declared himself agr.iust any blanket cession" of tidelands oil to the states. Stevenson at the time said he favored some sort of compromise solution to break the present stalemate. Eisenhower has said he would (avor legislation by Congress giving the states control over their submerged oil riches. Oldes. Married Man in Arkansas Dies at Age of 91 POCAHONTAS, Ark,.W)-Joshua B.

GOLDBERG UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (/]>) — The donkey cart owners of somali- and are down In the dumps and up .n arms over new taxes and fines imposed by city officials. They want U. N. headquarters to do something about it. They complain that there's many a day they don't earn a single brown cent, and tiow come these new (axes? The complaint was handed over .0 the three-member U. N. Advisory Council for Somalilaud by Ossoble Omar Ibrhaim, Siad Omar Araleh and Omar Isnian Oebri), "all residing in the village of Wardiglcv, Mogadishu, on behalf of the Somali and Arab cart - drawn-by-donkey owners." The advisory council sent the complaint on to the U. N. for examination by the U. N. Trusteeship Council, which keeps tabs on the trustee administration of Italy, in Somaliland. "\Ve Patiently Walt" The three complainants say they pay their yearly tax on time for the kind of goods carrying work "that we patiently await, day after day, and sometimes weeks and weeks, to earn our daily bread." On top of that, they say, the village officers are always levying fines on them, chiefly on the grounds they can't produce their tax license*. "We would like to point out that, owing to the large size of the licenses, one cannot carry it with him," the complainers plead, "especially if one has to earn his living looking after a cart, drawn by rt donkey, because such a license will inevitably go astray or become dirty. "Further, when one finds a load, he has to take up on his shoulders to the cart the goods, and this is not an easy task, permitting him to take care of the license. The shopkeepers have always ready their license when requested, and we know that. But it must be considered also the fact that shopkeepers do annend their licenses on the walls of their .shops, even though their business is n sedentary one. Cart Owner's Troubles "It would be needless to say that today this trust territory lacks from commercial activity, sinre this fact Is well known to you. However, we wish to draw your kind attention fo fact that, once there is no commercial activity, for the owner of cart, Is not an easy thing to find trade as the only source of possible finding goods for transportation is the Somali maize and millet mar- ket. "Prom there, one cannot rely on finding his daily bread, so far as the arrival of such goods in the market is not frequent. "The same case applies also to buyers. And thus, one goes back to home In the evening without having earned a single-brown cent while his numerous family were expecting something [ o . eal. This may continue for days after days." Now the complaint goes on, the city is imposing a daily tax in addi- tltm to the yearly license fees and the fines. The pleaders say that the police arrest and beat any grouu of four that gathers'. At least two cart- drawn-by-donkcy leaders have been arrested and their release was asked Afl-Time High Death Record Is Seen for Holiday CHICAGO la') — The coming three-day Labor Day week end probably will bring an all-time high in traffic deaths for that holiday the National Safety Council said today. t The council estimated that this year's toll may reach 480, Previous high wus 461 last year.

Japan's Premier Makes Fast Move To Save 'Party' Dissolution of Lower House Forced as Rivals Seek to Unseat Him TOKYO WJ-in a lightning move to save his political strength pro- U. S. Prime Minister Silvern Yo- shirta today forced dissolution of the lover house of the Japanese Dirt (Parliament) and set the first past- occupation general election for Oct. 1. -, The date Is at least a month or 45 days before rivals felt they would be ready to defeat the diminutive 74-year-old Premier. A dramatic noontime government announcement said the lower house would be dissolved at once. Then the speaker read a rescrint from Emperor Hirohito dissolving the house. That automatically shut down the upper chamber — (he House of Councilors — unless an emergency arises. It is only advisory. The Emperor's" rescript was countersigned by Yoshiila. who must have worked fast and secretly to catch his opposition olf Riiard. It takes a day or more to prepare an imnerial rescriot. Yoshida, .sometimes called by his opposition an "American punnet" because he co-operated strongly with Allied occiinatkm authorities, left yesterd.iv for s rest In the mountains 80 miles southwest of Tokyo. He rushed back lodav to .s!am through the dissolution, in a manner some observers called a stroke of political genius. Yoshida's influence is threatened by his predecessor as leader of the dominant Liberal party, ailing Ichiro Hatoyama, 70. Both are considered nro-Westorn but Hatoyama Js reenrded as more nationalistic and more indifferent than the Prime Minister toward rearming Japan.
