Trail Into Sinai Shows War Debris By CHARLES Weiss Associated press Writer TEL AVIV (AP)-We hit the Sinai trial one chilly morning '• before dawn in mist-shrouded; Jerusalem to follow in the step's; of Moses and the Wandering Tribes of Israel across the forbidding desert of sand and i mountains. We had it a little easier than the mighty prophet—but not much. Our modern-day caravan for the 1,070-mile trek was inado up mainly of 1942 U.S. Army trucks j hauling trailers piled high with i sleeping bags, gasoline, water, | food and oil. The treks are run by a firm called Mountain j Tours. The driver-guides were old desert hands, bronzed men with j wiry beards. There were 15 pas- ] sengers out to see the wilder-1 ness, until now the domain of| Bedouin and military patrols, j . El Arisli on the Mediterra- j nean coast was the first stop, j Here Israeli armor smashed j through Egyptian defenses in last June's war. j The debris is still there, j Knocked out tanks and captured I trucks waiting to be shipped to • Israel. VOTE TARLTON FOR MAYOR (PAID POL. ADV.) The expedition moved southwest, cutting across the routes of the Israeli advance last June, to the Mitla Pass, where the Egyptians were bottled up and destroyed as they tried to flee through the mountain range shielding the Suez Canal. The defile, the first campsite, was jammed with the blackened hulks of Arab armor. The adventurers built their fire with wood lorn from Egyptian trucks. The safari moved southwest through the still desert to the Gulf of Sucx, past the towering brownslonc pillar of Has el-Jin- di, a medieval Arab fortress built to repel a Crusader invasion. Everywhere there was debris from a later "holy war"—a can- leeh, a pair of cracked leather army boots J cake,d with dried blood, even a yellowing newspaper headlining the closure of the Straits of Tiran last May. •.... It took all day to grind across 50 miles of scorching sand. On the third day, the group followed the ancient caravan trail of Wadi Firan through the red sandstone canyon after which the trail was named. It is believed to be the spot from where Moses sent his spies into the Land of Canaan. The Bible lives here. On the canyon wall is scrawled the ancient Semitic script of ihe Naba- teans, whose camel trams passed here before Christ was born. LBJ, Dad Much in Common REX MORGAN, M.D, B?

Lyndon, say they had lots in common: Both taught school, loved politics and could quickly gauge a man's mettle. Father and son also fought and won contested elections. In 1948, while a congressmen. 1 Lyndon ran for the Democratic nomination for the Senate against Texas Gov. Coke II. Stevenson and came out 87 votes ahead out of nearly a million casl. There were charges of fraudulent voting.: however, and it look a 29-28 vote of the state Democratic Executive Committee to certify Lyndon as the Democratic, nominee. 1 tt was his springboard to national political prominence and llu: presidency. ! Sam had his political problems I 30 years before in a 1918 race for the Texas Legislature. His" opponent, A. N. Benner of Gil-, lespie County, charged that his name was left off the ballot in Kendall County and that voters, were threatened in Blanco Cotin- ' ty to keep them from casting their ballots for Benner, whoi ran as an independent. Sam's political advertising, said the Republican party refused to endorse Benner. "a man of no legislative experience, practically unknown outside of the community and is not qualified in any way for the high office to which he aspires."; Bcnnrr took his case to the legislature. j "I defeated him by a very: handsome majority on the face of the returns." Sam told a reporter, who described Sam as a legislator "in whom all lhe| 'boys' seem to repose a great; deal of confidence." Sam said Benner had told 1 him that if his name had not been left off the ballot in Kendall, one of four Central Texas counties in the district. Benner would have received 400 votes there. Sam said there were only GOO votes in Kendall County and "inasmuch as 1 received considerably over 300 of them I cannot imagine where he! thought, his strength would come ; from, up to the 400 figure. "In the event he had re-: ceived the number of votes hei alleges he would have redvcT and I had rccivcd the remaining ones ... I would still have a snug majority." \ Sam was certified the winner 1 by the county judge of Kendall County with 1,405 votes. Ben- ncr's total was not given, but : by checking records in three of; four counties which still had j the 1918 figures, this breakdown was obtained: : Sam led in Kendall (Boerne),! Sf;S-55. and Blanco (Johnson City i. 458-80. but trailed in' 'ic- (Fredericksburg), 291- i . This meant that excluding! Llano County (Llano — which \ did not have the old records—: Sam led 1.058 to 886. and must ; have received 347 votes in Llano to raise his total to the cerli-i fieri figure of j,4()5.Llano'svote; total for Benner cannot be fig-j ured since his overall total is not shown, but apparently there were a few more eligible voters in Llano County than Kendall since Llano's population was 5.360, compared to 4,779 in Kendall. And Snm said there were parently the omission of Ben- ncr's name from the ballot was more important than Sam maintained. The election contest filed by Benner was referred to the j House Committee on Privileges, I Suffrage and Elections. Its re- j port, drafted by Rep. J. T. Can- ales of Cameron County, said | that nowhere did Benner allege' he received the majority of the; votes. ! Also, the report said. Benner's j petition did not allege that Sam was "directly or indirectly re- sponsoble 1 ' for Benner's name being left off the ballot, nor did it allege that Sam "had anything to do with" the omission. Neither was it alleged, the report said, that had Benner's name been on the ballot, enough voters would have voted for him to change the election result. One alleged intimidation in Blanco County, the committee said. "Nowhere is there alleged the number of voters thus intimidated not that a sufficient number were thus intimidated to change the result of (the) election, the charge of intimidation being too general and uncertain."
