I shall draw warrants in the amount of three-fourths of the total expense,” Bullock said. “K the amount does not equal the actual expenditure, then an additional warrant will be drawn after the election.” Bullock noted that Atty.

Houston financier Sharp re- c e i V e d a three-year probated prison sentence and a $5,000 fine in Houston last year after pleading guilty of two minor banking and securities law violations.

EXPRESS CAPITOL BUREAU AUSTIN — State Rep. Price Daniel Jr. of Liberty Tuesday said he was continuing his race for House speaker in 1973 based on four proposed statutes calling for legislative reform and freedom from commitment to special interest groups. Daniel’s comments came after Rep. Don Cavness of Austin was named speaker pro tempore of the House Tuesday. Daniel said the election of Rep. Rayford Price of Palestine as “temporary interim speaker” last week has “very little effect on his own chances of winning the race” next year. He said 26 of 77 votes received by Price came from House members who are not seeking re-election. Of the 51 re- Before State Board maining votes, Daniel said, dozen or more came from representatives who face uphill fights in bids for re-election, and several votes were cast by lawmakers who have indicated they would vote for him in 1973. There will be at least 58, and perhaps as many as 75 or 80, new House members next year, Daniel said. The appointment of Cavness as speaker pro tern was effective immediately. 6 DAYS ONLY Mon. thru Sat. April 3 thru 8th 8x 10 PORTRAIT in living color s - I (AP)—Two AUSTIN challenging the validity of school hair-length rules go before the State Board of Education Saturday. The board will be asked by a former Bula teacher and Texas City High School pupil to throw out the codes. Education Commissioner J. W. Edgar ruled in January that the school districts were within their rights to tell teachers and pupils how long they could wear their hair. Sammy D. Sawyer, a high school math teacher in Bula, Bailey County, was fired because he refused to have his hair cut above his collar line. His hair barely touched his shirt collar. Charles Delgado, a lOth-gra- der at Texas City High School, OFFICIAL RESIGNS cases I was suspended because he re fused to comply with a dress code prohibiting hair styles that fall below the collar line. “The district believes after full study and after three years experience with the rule that it is essential as one of the bases for maintaining necessary standards of discipline,” Edgar said in his decision in the Delgado case. The vice principal at Texas City High said the youth’s hair hung an inch below the collar line at the time of his suspension. Sawyer’s hair also came slightly below the collar line. In 1970, the last time a grooming case came before the board, it overruled Edgar and found that the Keirville school district had illegally fired a high school math teacher for wearing a smaU beard.
