Tom James, vice i chairman of the crusading House | Investigating Committee, swapped j political insults Thursday over j alleged Beaumont and Port Ar- ithur vice conditions. James said his committee's report would criticize Wilson. He i said the report would not be ready for another month or two but he was speaking now because the report, when issued, might be considered "an unwarranted in- tervention'' in Wilson's race for the U.S. Senate. Wilson replied that he considered James' statement "obviously timed for political purposes best known to him in spite of his disclaimer." James was an active campaign worker for former Speaker Waggoner Carr when Carr unsuccessfully challenged Wilson for the attorney general's term just beginning. Wilson also contended* that MR.

James "did not make a full disclosure of facts in his statement TTVy-rj about the state investigating com' " jmittee's findings.'' James said the port will criticize Wilson for no acting to clear up Beaumont and Port Arthur. James said committee evidence will show that Wilson was asked for help from Beaumont more than two years ago. He said records show that Wilson's department said more than a year ago it was investigating conditions in Beaumont and Port Arthur. He also said that more than a month ago the committee asked Wilson to look into an injunction issued in 1951 against the | use of telegraph facilities for j gambling. The attorney general said com- j plaints his department has re- 'ceived from Beaumont and Port Arthur were referred to the Dc- ipartment of Public Safety and to date the DPS has not returned a report "The DPS has elected to first COUNTY SPORTS STADIUM FINANCE MEET SATURDAY Harris County officials will meet Saturday with tlie state legislators from the county to discuss financing of the county sports stadium. County Judge Bill Elliott says copies of a proposed legislative bill will be passed out and discussed in an attempt to remove any doubts the state representatives may have about the bill "THIS" IS probably the most complex undertaking here since the Ship Channel was built." he said. "But I am convinced of its importance to Harris County." The bill would permit the county to sell up to $22 million in general obligation bonds — backed by taxes — without the usual public vote. Elliott said he had no fears about tlie legality of the special bill, even though it would apply- only to Harris County. A general state law prohibits the sale of any bonds without the approval of voters. ELLIOTT SAID the special bill has been drawn up by the law- firm of Vinson, Elkins, Weems & Searls. Nios of the v.'ork on it committee re-i done ty George W. Sparks, who n """ m '"" '"-•• was formerly head of the bond desk in the state attorney general's office," Elliott said. "He's a nationally recognized authority." In addition to the nine legisla- missioners and' members of the Harris County Park Board are being invited to the meeting at 11 a.m. in the Commissioners Court room. ELLIOTT SAID officials of the Houston Sports Association and the Houston Fat Stock Show will also he welcome at the- meeting. The s port s association has agreed to pay the county an annual rental of S750.000 or $800.000 to pay off the bonds, plus operating expenses bringing the total up to SI million. Association officials pledge that extra taxes will never be needed to pay off the bonds. Elliott has explained that the with a view to asking a similar deal from the county.

MEANWHILE, the commissioners indicated Thurday that they would be happy to hear any new proposals by stock show officials.

President Eisenhower has stated repeatedly that America's prestige is not at stake in the space exploration race. The Kennedy committee's re- pon said: "Space exploration and exploits have captured tlie imagination of the peoples of. the world. During the next few years the prestige of the United States will in part be determined by the leadership we demonstrate in space activities." The committee was headed by Prof. Jeroe B.
