County Wet-Dry Vote Can't Nix City One AUSTIN (AP) — A wet - dry election in a city or precinct cannot be nullified by a county-wide election, the attorney general held Thursday. The opinion specifically said a planned countywidc election in Grayson County would have no effect on-Denison's vote to legalize liquor sales last July 9. Only another city-wide vole can change the July results, said Asst. Atty. Gen. Paul Floyd who wrote the opinion. Should a county-wide election be held, Denison citizens will be en- tilled to vote, the opinion added. Grayson County voted out beer sales in 1942 and has been dry since then until July, County Atly. Dean Martin of Sherman said in asking the opinion. Then Denison •~^ voted in the sale of all alcoholic beverages by a margin of about 70 votes with the rest of the county remaining dry. "It is now contemplated that a countywide election will be held in the near future for the purpose of attempting to nullify the Deni- Too Late to Classify STRAYED — Roan tnuley cow with whitefaccd heifer calf, from Taylortown.

The opinion said a Grayson County election, now or a year from now, would not change the Denison results. "This question was litigated to the Texas Supreme Court and the law seems to be clear now that a .countywide election voting dry will not control those cities or pre oincts which vote wet," said Atty. Gen. Will Wilson in a statement accompanying the opinion. Floyd's opinion discussed a Dimmitt County local option case that reached the Supreme Court. The court decision, returned early in 1!)59, said il is apparent the Texas Legislature in drafting the 1935 amendment to the constitution following repeal of prohibition, and the voters' approval of the constitution change, "intended that counties, justice's precincts and incorporated cities or towns should be on an equal footing, and that by complying with the provisions of the law either of them might hold an election any time to either legalize or prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages."

"And that's the eternal task in America," said Lewis. "You have a labor union, too, if you can keep it." Some people today, he said, are "astounded at the effrontery" of a labor organization accumulating over $100 million assets such as has the UMW. He defended the union's investments, outlined earlier to the UMW convention. This revealed an extensive blue chip union portfolio in coal mines, railroads, power firms, shipping concerns and banks. The UMW said its investment of about $21 million in the National Bank of Washington now is worth $50 million and, after a few decades, will be valued at some $100 million. 16 FOOT CABIN CRUISER with all accessories, priced to Kelt.

"I have grown old in your service," Lewis said. "It has become necessary for me to step aside. "I can only sny I have served as sincerely and as faithfully as my capacities would perm it. I have never been beguiled by the flatteries or inducements of the men with motives opposed to the welfare of the mine workers. "I have accepted no favors and there does not exist in America easier to express what's really in your mind when you know your opponent Is an enemy to your existence." Lewis said he noticed more people are fairly well off today—more "plutocrats", he said, than in his own early days. The miners' economic fights helped accomplish this, he added. But Lewis said the UMW had not always been affluent or powerful. It was here he appealed to miners to keep their union strong.
