Election Law Changes Seen As Major Issue By GARTH JONES AUSTIN (AP) — How Texas voters mark their ballots will get plenty of discussion at the legislature meeting in January. Some state legislators see pw- posals of election law changes becoming a major issue. Whatever the solid Democratic, Senate and House do, they can expect sideline comment from defeated but not silenced Republican leaders. "The Republican party long has sought a bi-partisan study of the election code and a new legislation on the subject," said state GOP Chairman Thad Hutcheson and national GOP Committeenun Albert Fay after losing a month- ions fight before state and federal officials lor a recount of Nov. 8 ballots. Any GOP comment or criticism to the legislature will have to be from the sidelines since it Jailed again to get a single party nominee on state lawmaking rolls. An Associated Press survey of pre-legislative opinion among the successful legislators shows at least seven new state tows or revisions will be proposed in January. The Houston Post recently polled all 31 state senators and reported that 40 per cent of >he answers showed "strong sentiment" in favor of changing the present "scratch" method ol voting. Mixups over ballots that left more than one candidate's name unscratched caused the big general election vote counting furore. The legal subcommittee of the State Democratic Executive Committee has underway a survey to determine views of county methods of marking ballots. The findings will be passed on to the legislature. Top GOP officials said this week they are assembling "all the defects in the general election and we will take steps to present this report, with specific recommendations, to the legislature." The Texas election code was completely rewritten by the leg. islature in 1951 and has been amended several tunes since. It is still burdened with many overlapping or conflicting provisos. Since the 1951 revision there has been an almost constant succes- sion of study committees recommending further changes. A state representative who asked to be unnamed answered the AP survey by predicting that the No. 3 issue of the 1961 legislature will be "election coda amended." Rep. George Hinson of Mincola lists election law reforms close behind taxation and redistricting as major Issues of the session. "Our election laws should be reexamined, especially those concerning balloting procedures," said Sen. David Ratliff of Stamford. Rep. B. H. Dewey, prominent law changes to present. Three <-an be expected to bring forth considerable discussion. Dewey's proposals include: Amend the state Constitution to provide of two a provision that a governor can I not succeed himself. Require an annual exemption certificate for all voters who do not pay a poll tax. Now the exemption certificates are not required for those over 65 or under 21 in communities of 10,000 or less. Rep. Howard Green of Fort Worth plans to present a bill that would make the same rules apply for special elections to fill vacancies for U. S. Representative as those that now apply for the U.S. Senate. The so-called Pool Bill of the 1957 Legislature calls for a runoff between the two high candidates for a Senate vacancy. A vacancy for Congress could now be filled by the man getting the highest vote in a special election, without a majority of the vote r-r runoff with the next highest candidate.

Dewey's fourth bill proposes another constitutional amendment. It would allow a voter to obtain a poll tax or exemption up to "J) days before an election and would change the requirement lor residence in a county or district from six to three months. Rep. Tom James of Dallas, vioe chairman of the House Investigating Committee, plans to oifcr a bill that would set up a "Hatch Act" lor state employes. Tl.e Hatch Act prohibits federal em- iployes from taking an active part n political campaigns. Rep.-elect Dan Struve of Camp- xlltan wants legislation to abolish the poll tax and "substitute a workable voter registration law."

Colorful Coach Returns To Dallas For Meet With Boys By HAROLD V. RATLIFF AP Sports Writer Pete Cawthon, one of the most colorful coaches in football history, came to Dallas for a reunion with his players. Cawthon, who coached Rice, Terrell Prep, Austin lege, Texas Tech and in at ol- pro football, now resides at Tuscaloosa, Ala. He is retired from connection with sports except contact with "my boys" of the coaching yesterdays. He has oJ income and is well- fixed financially — one of the few coaches who ever could attain such leisure when he got cut of the game. There was the tone he was so disgusted with the play of his Austin College team that he told .the regulars they were to stay in the dressing room and his second team w6uld"start the last half. The boys got mad, raced out to the field and took over for the kickoff without even consulting Cawthon. Aus- tin College won and that's what Pete had planned all the tune. "Big Mama" Herring, one ol his men at Texas Tech—" If I was as big as you I'd play 'em by myself," Pete used to tel him — told about the time he was hit on the Adam's apple When hs first came field he couldn't talk ROY STOCKMAN Sweeny Yankees Open In April With Minnesota By CHARLES MOKET AP Sports Writer It's a shade staggering to read that the Yankees will open their season against Minnesota. But the off the while Cawthon kept yelling at him "What's the matter?" Finally Herring regained his voice and said, "I got hit in the Adam's apple." "Sho" nuff," said Pete in his southern drawl. "1 thought you swallowed a head geah or somthin'." Speedy Moffett, the little guy who played at Tech, missed a tackle and Cawthon pulled him from the game. Moffett didn't want to talk to the frowning coach so he went to the end of the,. bench and covered his head with a blanket. Cawthon followed him and growled: "If I had somebody little enough to wean yoah unifawm I'd take it." Tech was playing Oklahoma A&M and Johnny Suns was getting his passes intercepted. At the half Pete came in the dressing room. He collared Sims and snapped: "Now yoah coloh is red and they is black and you ought to be able to tell them apaht unless you is coloh blind. So Monday, you go to the West Texas hospital and you bettah hope they find you coloh blind." Bill Davis told about the time Yankees will meet the Minnesota twins, the transplanted Washington Senators, in the season opener at Yankee Stadium (<n April llth. This will be Ralph Houk's debut in New York as manager. Nobody knows better than the resolute Ralph what a large pair of brogans be is stepping into. After 12 years of Casey Stengel and 10 pennants, the Yankee fans are accustomed to a rich diet. Ralph will have the added bui- den of going to the post with ne favorite. In a league of 10 teams, with several realy weak ones, he has a strong lineup. He has the hitting and the fielding and if his pitching stands up ne'll take a lot of beating. The front office knows that and made a strenuous effort this win- ;er to acquire southpaw Johnny Antonelli when the San Francisco Giants put him on the block. But they were outbid by \he Cleveland Indians who gave up steady-hitting Harvey Kuenn for Antonelli and Willie Kirkland. The Yankee pitching is not exactly shaky. But the team could use one more starter. Some of the Yankee hurlers need .nore than three days of rest and cannot be used in a steady 4-day rotation. One of them is Whitcy Ford, the great money piMier, who has had arm trouble on a'ri off the past few years and cannot be worked overtime. The Yanks are hoping tint young Bill Stafford will be ti'.e man to take up the slack. He! looked mighty impressive irom! time to time last season and came within an inch of getting the starting assignment in the 7th and final game of the World Series. Bill was brought up from Rich- I mond in mid-season and had a record of three victories and one loss for New York. His earned (run average was a shining 221. he and Mule Dowell were get ting mixed up on the timing in practice and Cawthon mad them run around the quarter mile track 44 times. "That was 11 miles," grimmaced Davis al most a quarter of a century later. Cawthon admired Knut Rockne of Notre Dame and als Notre Dame football. Once h stromed to his players: "I trav els you. like Notre Dame an you eats like Notre Dame bu you play like Canyon Normal. The team had taken a 34- beating from Detroit and w flying home. Pete muttered, wish this plane would fall an take us all with it." Remarke Pete Owen, one of the players "He's always trying to live lik Rockne; now he wants to di like him." Rockne was kille in a plane crash in 1931. Pete was a hard task-master and it was tough to play football lor him, said Davis, but all the men Cawthon developed through football loved him. As Davis recalled, about the time he had taken a terrific battering in the first half against Centenary: me, 'The first half you was playing foah youah school; the BOBBY LILES West Columbia DENNIS GALLOWAY Sweeny second half you'll for youah life'."
