Still Only Single Candidate Running By <!ARf H J0NES AtFStlN (AP) - they turned on the Christmas lights in Texas' capital city the past week but the added glow still revealed only one campaigning candidate for governor. Lt. Gov. Preston Smith surrounded by a crowd of political speculators—that's the latest view of the expected hot 1968 Contest. Actually there Is plenty of j time, until Feb. 5, for one and all to make up their minds. However, in the first few days after Gov. John Connally's no-fourth- term declaration it appeared the campaign would be jammed immediately by about 18 candi: dates. 1 Smith, who ended the week One Injured In Accidents There was one injury and five automobile accidents in the Brownwood area from Friday afternoon to Saturday night.

"Since I, apparently, am going I to be unopposed in the race for j governor, I won't be able (o (ell you about my opponent's lack 'of leadership, nor of his efforts to spend us into bankruptcy," Smith told an Amarillo group. Secretary of State John Hill made no announcement but to anyone who inquired, he said he planned to announce for governor after his Jan. 18 election law conference. Hill, 44. said he would resign as a stale official when he announced. Friends ot Sen. Ralph Yarborough, D-Tex., said they expected him to jump into the governor's race after Jan. 6, but Varborough refused to name the dale. "I think I could win," he said in a Washington interview, but said he was still weighing a possible governorship against his present Senator's job.

What are the alternatives to a sales tax in Brownwood? A. Brownwood like the rest | of the nation, has been pressed by the growing inflationary trend and increased cost of or> erations. Brownwood has a number of alternatives. It can: (1) ^y to maintain the status quo and fall even further behind in .salaries and services the city iCan render; (2) Raise revenue necessary to provide the caliber of employes to keep pace i with a growing Brownwood and to continue improving municipal facilities, of which the most pressing are streets and drainage. To finance these the city ! must raise property 'taxes, con' tinue increasing charges for water and sewer services; (3) Finance these programs through a municipal sales tax. Q—Why should a city dweller who rents his residence favor the local sales tax? A—For one matter, the person who rents enjoys the same services available to the property owner. For another, if it is necessary for the city to raise property taxes, the increased cost of this tax will be passed along in the form of higher rent charges. Q—Is the local sales lax regressive— that is, will it cause a particular hardship for lower income families? A—A sales tax has more elements of equity than any other type of tax, and this is particularly true in Texas, since so many esenlial items are exempt from the sales tax. with the AFl-Cio United Auto Workers union. | Me called in § statement for j"fi. fettlffl to ffitfffe feasible ibehaviof ofi wages and prices by both labor and management." U.S. Steel announced Friday an increase of $5 a ton—about 3.4 per cent—on two grades of j steel sheets. These types are widely Used in consumer prod- lucts frotn automobiles to small home appliances and such a raw-material price increase could be reflected quite quickly at the retail level. Other steel producers have not announced their plans but "Big Steel 11 is the industry's largest corporate unit ahd normally is the bellwether on prices. Ackley argued that not only is a steel-price increase unjustified at this time but the industry's "costs and prices are al* ready too high—not too low," The economist acknowledged that 1967 has been a disappointing year on the profit side for the steel industry but said 1968 promises to be much better. An increase in prices is not the answer for the industry, he said, because: "The way for steel to solve its problems is not to raise Its prices but to lower its costs through improved technology and productivity." Linking the steel-price hike and the recently fashioned auto wage pattern—Ackley called them equally disturbing. He added: "Government estimates of the magnitude of this settlement place Its cost at about 5 % per cent a year—and more than 6 Vt per cent year if the cost-of.liv- ing allowance reached the maximum permitted under the contract. "The fact that the highly prof itable automobile industry can afford such Increases is beside the point. Industry generally affords them without higher prices." Apparently taking note of recent increass in the prices of new cars and the speculation that steel costs might bring another advance, Ackley said: "Given the high level of auto industry profits and the trend of the productivity advance, it is hard to see why a price Increase is necessary."
