J ' *f \ N6WS D'Daniel Says He Kepi Hands OH University DALLAS, Marcli 7-(/P>—The? Dallas News Sunday quoted Sen. O'Daniel as saying he kent hands off University of Texas affairs while he was governor. In a statement, to tlic News, the senator, in Dallas on ;i visit, said "I think il, only lair that llu- jK'Oplr should know 1.1 in fuels iibout this situation." He \vas rrlVrilur, t" <m article in the News laj;! I'TirUiy. quoting Mrs. Minnie Fibber Cunningham of Austin, .secretary ol tin; committee for education freedom. Mrs. Cunniuham was quoted a.* stating that the University of Texar: was taken into polilk's by former Gov. o'Danicl and Gov. Coke Stevenson. O'Daniel told the News that "when I became governor f reappointecl to the board Dr. K. H. Ayncswortli of Waco, H. J. Lutcher Stnrk of Orange ant'i Mrs. I. D. Pairchilrt of Lufkin. "All of these people were placed on the board of regents by former governors and they were reappointed by me. "Later in my administration I appointed Fred Branson of Galvps- ton, an outstanding banker nnci insurance man. I appointed Dan -T. Harrison, an ex-student of the university, who had been prominent for j'ears in the ex-students association, a leading businessman of Houston. find I also appointed Orville Bullington of Wichita Falls, who was a former president of the ex-students association and a successful businessman and an outstanding citizen. "At no time while I was governor did I ever suggest to any member of the board of regents of the university what he should do in the performance of his duties. I picked good, men and let them do what they thought was right. The statement that the University of Texas was injured by political appointments made by me is absolutely without any foundation of fact. "While governor I made no effect to attempt to have a hand \\\ the handling of the affair;; of the university. "I have, however,'observed the operations of the board of regents since I left the governor's offiec with great interest and I think the board of regents has performed its duties to the satisfaction of most of the citizens of Texas, except a few politicians, reds and communists." IS Winner of Famed Queen for a Day A bit of international gocd will •was disseminated the other day when the first British GI bride to appear on the _ Queen For A Day broadcast was unanimously elected queen. Blonde, lissome Lillian Grosch arrived a short four weeks ago on the SS Argentina with the large group of GI wives and babies who had come to the United States to join their American husbands. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U. H. Army Sergeant Erving Grosch was anxiously awaiting her arrival. As one of the surprises he'd planned for her, they traveled to California on a belated honeymoon. On the stage of the Earl Carroll theater in Hollywood, Lillian told the story of their romance. They met in a shelter in London during an air raid, and the romance blossomed from that point on. Because of emergency regulations, the Grosch wedding was simple. Lillian, who had always pictured lipr;.elf in an elaborate uricUil gown, was aUirru in a simple ration-lyne frock (two seams, and the civil ccrc- mony was conducted in accordance with wartime regulations. When nominated queen, Lillian had but one wish. She'd like to have that real, honest-to-gooclness fancy wedding 1 she'd always dreamed about—with all the trimmings and attended fanfare. And pictures of the event to send home to her family in England. As Master of Ceremonies Jack Bailey placed the royal crown on her head, Lillian had tears in her 'eyes. "My husband always told me how wonderful you Americans were," she said. "But I never expected anything like this!" Queen For A Day is heard each weekday, Monday through Friday, over the Muvual Broadcasting system and KPDN. o • PLANS FOR YKAR ' SAN ANTONIO, Miirch 7 '/l''~- Plans for the <:ciuiiiM year's wort: for the annromialfly MO.i.iWJ IIIHII bers of the .stiite'i home- iteiiioii;>ti';i- tion clubs will tat: nv.n;|ied when tin- board of directors of I lie Texas hoinr demonstration association hold it:-' annual meeting hore March 12-14.
