PASS 2 — THE BAYTOWN SUN. FRIDAY. JANUARY 15, 1954 Texas Politics-* ARE 'LOYALIST' DEMOCRATS SPLIT ON PARTY STRATEGY? AUSTIN, Jan. IS —UP—There were faint indications Friday that sU might not be well within the "loyalist" faction of the Texas Democratic party, which supported Adlai E. Stevenson for the presidency in 1952- Political observers long have held the view that 1954's Democratic primaries and conventions will be marked by bitter fights between the "loyal" Democrats and the faction led by Gov. Allan Shivers, who repudiated Stevenson and wa s instrumental in delivering Texas' 24 electoral votes to Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952. But there apparently was a difference of opinion on strategy among the loyalists. It was reported Rep. Sam Rayburn, dean of the Texas delegation in Washington, had asked "faithful Democrats" in some state senatorial districts to 'pick nominees lor a National Democratic Advisory Council. Rayburn directed the 1952 Democratic national campaign in Texas when . National Committeeman Wright .Morrow of Houston defected with Shivers. It was believed by some that the Texan s on the national group might function as a counterpart to the state Democratic executive committee, which is controlled by Shivers. Byron Skelton of .Temple, an old- time loyalist leader/ refused to comment on the development. "Any statement ought to come from. Mr. Rayburn or Mr. (Stephen A.) • Mitchell (national Democratic chairman). They haven't indicated I ought to ' speak for them," he said. . Former Austin Mayor Tom Miller said he received.a letter from Skelton recently, asking that he think about selections for the advisory council. But Miller, who Ire- quenijy has -led money-raising ef- iorts for the party, said he hadn't done anything .about the request. Two other prominent loyalists, who asked their names. not be used, said they wouldn't have anything to do with the program.

"I'd rather not talk about it Mr. Hayburn never consulted me about it." He predicted the program would meet with opposition, and accused some loyalist leaders of "trying to by-pass the national committeeman and committeewoman without facing up to it." Morrow has been repudiated as committeeman by the national group, .but the Shivers - controlled faction of the party maintains he still holds the office. I K«* f« SAW TRANCISCO, J»n.

She pointed out that 540,000 of Texas' $70,000 quota for the national party had been raised through SlO-a-piate dinners, with Hayburn active in that .effort.
