Joe Allen To Push For Dredge Control Bill By HON LKNNAHD State Hep. Joe Allen of Baytown has introduced a number of bills and resolutions in the House. Allen filed a measure that would halt issuance of dredging permits in a 5,000-acre portion of Galvcslon, Trinity and East bays. It would also revoke permits now in force which allows dredging. "There arc six reefs there under the protection of the Parks and Wildlife Department. They could withdraw their protection al any time and the reefs would not be protected by any legislation," Allen said. "I want to protect those reefs . . . and four more . . . just like California protects their Redwood trees," Allen said. He said Ihc prohibition wouid cover approximately 57 tracts off Galveslon and Chambers counties. Another Allen bill would require motorists on divided highways to drive in Die right-hand lane to allow passing only on the left. "My bill is designed lo end careless passing on the right and believe it would also reduce bottling up traffic by slow- moving drivers paralelling each other," he said. "Col. Wilson Speir, head of the Texas Department of Public Safely, told me in Baytown on Jan. 1-1 that he would endorse such a bill, that he wholeheartedly approved of it and that it should have been passed long ago." Allen said. Hie Uaytown legislator also otic-red a bill lhal would creale or allow branch offices for ab- Icel as Gov. Smith does on this subject. "1 think it is ridiculous when it comes to voling, lhal young people between 18 and 21 are categorized as lunatics, paupers, and persons with felonious backgrounds," Allen said. "1 also believe that young people 18 years old are more learned individuals than 18-year- olds were 10 years ago ... 1 sincerely believe they are mature enough to cast a vole," Allen added. Other bills introduced by Allen included one making il an of- lense lo transfer tobacco to a minor under 16 years old through sale or even as a gift. The bill was drafted by Allen based on a •eport of youngsters al Bay- lown's Koberl E. Lee High School. In Ihe same bill, reslrictions would also make it a crime to nainlain an unsupervised vend- ng machine from whicli minors could obtain tobacco without laving to show proof of age. Minors who have written peril ission from their parents to use obacco would be exempt from he proposed law, according to \llen. received a BS degree in journalism and art Irom Texas A&l Uni yiTsiiv.

Over Last Year PITTSBURGH, Pa., <Sp) — Gulf Oil Corp has estimated that it's consolidated net income for 1%B svas $620 million, an increase of 10.2 per cent over the S5U8 million earned in 1967, before extraordinary items, and a record high for the tenth consecutive year. The earnings are equal to $3.02 a share, or 28 cents more than the comparable $2.74 earnings per share for the previous year, adjusted to reflect a two-for-one slock split in September, 1968. Board Chairman E. D. Brocketl said Gulf experienced volume increases in its worldwide operations during 1968. Final revenue figures are not available but are estimated to be over $5.5 billion.

Truitt said there may be some "merit" in a suggestion that he was a special case in view of his family connections but he hasn't reached a "perspective" yet on whether his treatment was worse or better as a' consequence. He received no rough handling at any time and, in fact, his weight rose to 167 pounds from 150. During the preprison period he resided under guard and incommunicado in a residence near the home of the Canadian ambassador. He was allowed to go for walks and bus rides but always in the company of his "compa- neros," or companions, his term for his guards. On his arrival in Cuba, the first questions he said he was asked by the authorities were: Do you believe in God? Did you ob a bank of kill somebody? iVhy do you make trouble for us? On the Thanksgiving day, aft- T several hijacked planes had .rrived in Havana from the United States, a Cuban police official told Truitt he was lucky ic arrived before "our minister decided to take a tough note." Asked whether the Cubans en- .ertained unauthorized arrivals they regarded as bona fide potit- cal refugees, Truitt said: No, I was told by an immigration officer that people who ask for political asylum are special cases—that the law which prohibits crossing borders without proper papers is suspended until a proper judgment can be reached on each and every case. "However, if you're a bloody criminal they'll throw you in ail. I understood they had started cracking down on unauthorized flights whether they used hijack methods or not. This is what I heard, but you know I did not live at the airport." Why and how did Truitt go to Cuba? I chartered an aircraft. I had journalistic curiosity since I had worked on a newspaper. . .1 had a modest journalistic experience. There is a silly law that prohibits Americans from going to Cuba and so American journalists are not making it, you might say, a regular thing. "I had met so many fabulous Cubans in Key West, Fla., that I could not believe all I was hearing from the American- press. I can only say I picked a foolish way to go. There are easier and better ways, I've learned since." He described as "categorically untrue" a report that the Cuban government, in the view of one highly placed aviation source, would like the world to assume that all hijackers are fleeing the United States because they are dissatisfied with the system. "The Cuban government needs hijackers like it needs a hole in the head," said Truitt. "It means a great deal of work for them. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they started getting tough." Does Truitt feel more friendly toward the Cubans than before he went? "I still have a lot of questions. I believe the blockade is immoral, illegal. The idiotic policy of my own country is in not recognizing Cuba. . .1 don't like communism. My own opinion is that it just develops a new class."
