(News-Herald Photo) Switch Engine Explodes Harvey Wesley Brown Rites Set Saturday Drink Vote Here In Del Rio Yard Today By LEE JONES Associated Press Writer AUSTIN (AP) - Texas House members debated today the Senate-passed liquor by the drink bill after hopes revived for May 18 local option mixed drink elections. Tentative approval today would set up a final House vote Monday and return the bill to the Senate for action on Amendments, Rep. DeWitt Hale of Corpus Christ! tried Thursday to bring the bill up. for immediate House vote, but the 85-56 roll call was a few votes short of the two- thirds majority needed to suspend rules and debate the measure. The bill's backers claimed the measure had to be passed and signed by Gov. Preston Smith by midnight Friday to get liquor by the drink on local option ballots in 46 counties May 18, the same day as a statewide election on constitutional amendments. This, they said, was because of a 30-day notice requirement for local option elections. But after failure to bring the bill up for debate Thursday, Hale said, "I think maybe we were misinformed about May 18, I think 20 .days' notice will comply with the (notice) requirement to get it on the May 18 ballot." Docket-Heavy Today In Maverick County The bill would require a local option election on mixed drinks May 18 in each area that is "wet" for all alcoholic beverages and located in a county that approved the liquor by the drink constitutional amendment Nov. 3. For this to happen, the House would have to approve the bill by a two-thirds majority and the Senate would have to accept House amendments by a like margin. Smith, who promised to sign the bill, would have to do so in the next week or so. Some of Texas' top tourist areas are among the places where local option elections May 18 would be mandatory. These include GalvestonC oun-- ty, El Paso County. Nueces County (Corpus Christi), Bexar County (San Antonio), Webb County (Laredo) and Harris County (Houston). The House Liquor Regulation Committee, which rewrote parts of the Senate bill, refused pleas by drys to limit cocktail service to restaurants and hotels. Instead, the bill would permit bars dedicated to the sole purpose of drinking hard liquor, perhaps with a splash of water or other mixers and maybe a bowl of peanuts. Licenses to serve liquor by the drink would not come cheap. A Southern Pacific switch engine exploded shortly before noon today causing extensive damage to the engine section. There were no injuries reported, however, firemen from the Central Station were fighting the blaze in the engine compartment with CO2 extinguishers after water would not douse the burning diesel fuel. A spokesman for Southern Pacific, T.F. Gallington, Road Foreman of Engines, said at the scene that the explosion was, "very unusual." He said, "This is the second one I have seen in 25 years." According to Gallington, the explosion and fire was the result of fuel getting into the crankcase and igniting. He said that a definite cause would not be determined until the engine is taken apart to be repaired. The explosion occurred as the engine was setting idle hi the Del Rio Yard about 200 feet west of Main Street. Harvey Wesley Brown, 78, died in a local hospital Thursday. He had resided here for five months. Graveside rites will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. in Oak Lawn Memorial Park with the Rev. Fred Wiesen, pastor of the First Baptist Church, officiating. Military honors will be paid at the grave, since Brown was a veteran of World War I. He was bom March 4, 1893 in Grafton, N.C. and was a self-employed photographer. There are no known survivors.
