Little Rock is the reading clerk in lhe Senate, He eats lemon drops and drinks soft drinks throughout tho day to keep his voice coming out strong and clear, Harmon, who Is waiting to take his bar exam after recent* ly graduating from the University of Arkansas LAW School, estimates he reads about 5,000 to 10,000 words a day that are contained In legislative bills, amendments, announcements and roll calls. Here Is an example, in part, of what Harmon reads hour after hour: "A bill for nn act to be entitled an act setting up... providing tor... and for othar purposes." To the layman, much of the wordage may sound like ftvlot of double talk, but the phraseology Is what makes it a must that the clerk keep a smooth tongue so no mistakes will be made In tho reading. The only mistake Harmon could recall he mnde was read- Ing the word "distributed" when the word actually was "disturbed." Harmon said ho never tried to hasten any action, "The presiding officer is the quarterback and I just follow his signals." he said, "It's a Job that allows you to see all parts of the legislative process except the committee meetings," Harmon said, He enjoys this because apparently he has political ambitions.

"Next day, she took me over to this wholesale house in Dallas, and I saw just what I wanted. Towels that were red on one side, with white dots, and white on the other, with red dots." Since that time, Guy has ordered his towels from the Dallas .wholesale house, through his aunt in Arp, Tex. He gets them by the dozen. They cost $18 a dozen, and he runs through two dozen a season.

"it helps me," says Guy. "I've always used a towel on the bench—to chew on, wave it around or Just plain hide behind it if we're not playin'good," Lewis has another coaching crutch to sustain him during the tense action of a basketball game. He drinks water. An average game is 25 cups. Four years ago, when the Houston Cougars went into overtime with Notre Dame in the NCAA playoffs at Lubbock, he set a personal record. "My manager," blushes Guy, "told me I drank 36 cups. My manager won't tell me what I drank against UCLA this year." The UCLA game, in the Astrodome on Jan. 20, before the largest paid crowd ever to watch a competitive basketball game, projected Houston nationally as king of the college courts. The UCLA team t with Lew Alcindor, has been called the best college team ever assembled. The Cougars, with Elvin Hayes, won, which should result in a similar claim. "I don't feel like we're the best team ever put together," demurs Lewis. "I feel like we're the best team ever in Texas." If he were a professional Texan, a guy might think that amounts to the same thing. But Lewis is realistic. Three of his starters come from Louisiana. A fourth was plucked out of New Jersey. And the fifth, Ken Spain, he knew right from his junior high school days because Spain played with Guy's son, Vern. who is the sixth man on the current Houston varsity. * About the same time Guy discovered red and white polka a^wced^wW^sdVhe would dot towels, he located another brilliant find which had even nn» hi I candidate far oolitical greater impact on Houston's basketball program.
