(UPI)- lireckenridge oilman Jack Cox, who polled 40 per cent of the total vote as a candidate for governor in last year's Democratic primary, has announced he will run again, this time as a Republican. Cox said Thursday he was encouraged to make his announcement by an endorsement given him Wednesday by a group of 67 Texas conservative leaders in Austin, The gathering included former Texas Gov. Coke R. Stevenson and Mrs. Dan Moody, wife of the former governor. Cox said that he hopes "to lead the forces for constitutional government and individual liberties to a smashing victory over the forces of socialism in the general election next November (1962)." The endorsement by the conservative leaders and other encouragement given over the state "have convinced me that a majority of Texans believe a forceful rejection and decisive repudiation of the type of state government we are presently experiencing is long overdue," Cox said. Cox, 40, changed over to the GOP last month and since that time has been making speeches all over the state. The veteran officer, removed rom command of the 24th Division in Germany over alleged jolitical activities, which critics said were based on principles of the .right wing John, Birch? Society, said. he would refuse the 11,012.50 a month retirement pay IB is due. In 'a,bitter statement Thursday announcing his intention to reign, he said it would be a 'compromise with my, principle" to accept the pay. The Army said that Walker could, in effect, be ordered to remain on duty, but a spokesman added there was no thought of doing that. Walker's statement, sent to the Senate Military Preparedness subcommittee, which resumes hearings the "muzzling" hassle was released by Sen.

Peeples said today delegations totaling into the hundreds will come from Perryton, Borger, Amarillo, Spearman, Groom, Panhandle, Mobeetie, and other Panhandle cities. Only Wednesday of this week, Cox, tomorrow night's principal speaker, was the center of a move spearheaded by two prominent Texas Democrats and backed by 65 other Texas conservative leaders to elect Cox as Republican governor of Texas, The group, headed by former Gov Coke Stevenson and Mrs- Dan Moody, wife of the former governor, met in Austin and urged the Breckenridge oilman to enter the race, Peeples said here in Parnpa today that the Texas leaders were urging "all conservatives, regardless of party affiliation, to join in support of Cox's candidacy." Cox switched over to the Republican party this Fall. on Nov. 17, Strom Thurmond, D-S.C., a Walker supporter. Walker,: who is staying in San Antonio, 'said he had no further comment on his resignation because his statement to the subcommittee speaks for itself. He declined to say if he would accept an invitation to appear before the subcommittee. But he added that he agreed with Gen. Douglas MacArthur that executive power has become so strong that military men are being treated ruthlessly for speaking their minds. "The encroachment upon the responsibility of the legislative branch to; regulate >the military conduct is : the very encroachment now turned on me. In defeat I am in good company." Walker was relieved of his command last April and after investigation was admonished for "participating in controve'rsial activities" and for making "derogatory remarks of a serious nature about certain prominent Americans." Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara later testified that Walker had attempted to influence the votes of his troops in the 1960 election.

Walker, in his statement, said, "my career has been destroyed in its usefulness to my country." "It will be my purpose now, as a civilian, to attempt to do what I have found it no longer possible to do in uniform." There was speculation that Walker might enter politics in his home state of Texas, Sen, John Tower, R-Tex,, said Walker's case focuses attention on "attempts to gag the military, and the practice needs very much to be brought to light," Buc Sen, Stephen M, Young, D- Ohio, an Army reserve lieutenant colonel, said he had reviewed the record of the investigation and said Walker "was very fortunate that he wai not court-martialed" for his troop-indoctrination activities in Europe. "Our objective is not peace, but freedom." Walker said. "If we are vigilant and strong and willing and worthy to defend our liberty, peace will be at home with us. If the Soviet leaders are made to understand that we will fight, (See WALKER, Page 3) a definite stand to restora con stitutional government." While the mayor and three of the four city commissioners expressed sympathy for Dr. Sypert's conservative thinking, it was the individual opinion of the commissioners that the commission as a body should not moke any kind of political endorsement. It seemed lo be the consensus throughout the discussion that both the Republican and Democratic parties had some philosophies with which the commissioners did not agree. Dr. Sypert said he felt t h e same way, but he added: "I believe that the Republican party now is the only party left that gives us an opportunity 10 get away from the current so- Damac e Amazes Political philosophies, industrial needs, zoning and public relations kept city commissioners supplied with plenty of discussion material at today's meeting of the City Commission, Dr. S.
