OIL AND GAS NEWS PampanRuns for Congress as Republican PAMPA.—Robert D. (Bob) Price, Gray county farmer and rancher, announced recently his .ntentions to seek the nomina- ;ion of the Republican (party for the position of United States Congressman from the 18th Congressional District. The 36-year-old Pampan declared his candidacy at a cof- 'ee meeting attended by more than 100 friends and Republican party officials from over ;he 28-county district. "For the past 14 years this district has been' supposedly represented in Washington by the man from Chevy Chase, Maryland'—the incumbent con- •ressman w!ho has consistently misrepresented the people of our great Panhandle. Hisserv- ce has been more that of Maryland's 8th congressman, rather than of Texas' 18th," Price'told the group. A sabre jet fighter pilot veteran of the Korean War nad "ather of three, Price is engaged in ranching operations 'n Roberts, Gray, Hutchinson and Carson counties. Upon returning from the service, he joined with other members of one of the oldest pioneering families in this sec;ion of the county in the ac- iive operation of their Panhandle holdings. He Is a member of First Baptist Church and is immediate Past President of the Kiwanis Club in Pampa. Price labelled himself a "conservative Gpldwater Republican" advocating a return to a freemarket economy in agriculture, an end to foreign aid to Communist nations and he "so-called neutrals", and a .ax cut with a corresponding ut in government spending. In declaring his philosophy the gathering, Price told hem, "Let no one be mistak- n, I am a conservative Re- onblican subscribing to the iews of the Hon. Sen. Barry VI. Goldwater, and I believe hat these are the views most eld by the citizens of the 18th Congresisonal District of Texas." Speaking on the farm issue, 'rice told his audience, "Con- xary to the voting record of ;he incumbent Congressman, 1 )elieve that the answer to this erious pro'blem lies in less con- rols, not more controls, and a program aimed at returning he agricultural Industry to a ree market economy, such as 3 advocated by the American and Texas Farm Bureau." Addressing himself on the U.S. foreign policy, Price was most critical of the administration. "Many years ago I was toM you can't buy friendship with money. After 20 years of sowing .billions and billions of American dollars in this vain attempt we have reaped only retreat and defeat. The time has come for America to take a hard cold look at our foreign aid program. There is absolutely no excuse or reason for any free country to give aid and comfort to any communist dictatorship. As for foreign aid —I believe that American dollars and American lives should only be spent in those countries pledged to defend America and her freedom. For many years we have 'been subsidizing the communist dictatorships in Yugoslavia, Poland and other (places, but not since 1945 until this past year has any American administration had the audacity to directly subsidize the murderous dictatorship of the Russian government. Selling wheat to Russia at below American costs is subsidizing the Russians, and there is no way of getting around a fact as treacherous as that. Any man who would vote for a (bill to feed the armies of a country dedicated to, the destruction of freedom and liberty is not morally fit to hold an office in this great nation." Speaking on financial matters, Price commented, "I, as most Americans, feel that the taxation of our citizens and our business community is far too burdensome and would welcome relief from this situation, however, there are many things tp bo considered when we talk of a tax cut. First we have to realize that the President has just asked Congress to approve an almost 100 billion dollar budget for the fiscal year of 1965. Our national debt has soared to such astronomical figures tthat it is completely incomprehensible to the human 'brain. The country currently owes over 300 billion dollars, the interest on which alone costs the taxpayers over 10 bilMon dollars a year. Every! THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, February 6, 1964 child born in this country today owes a debt of almost $1800.00 to his government before he can ever drink milk out of a bottle. The national tax for 1965 will amount to almost $500.00 for every man, woman and child In itihe U.S. A tax cut would be a welcome breath of fresh air, und as Congressman I would eagei'ly vote for any tax cut that was proposed with a corresponding budget cut and providing that that budget would also (propose honest intentions of retiring the national debt rather than promoting it. Any other vote would be a disservice to ourselves, our chiWren, and to generations of Americans as yet unborn." In pledging himself to an all out campaign Price told the group that he would dedicate his efforts and his time to the job confronting him. In challenging those present, Price said, "This is not my fight. It is not a fight for the Republican party. This campaign does not belong to any one person or group of persons. This is a camtpaign for the people of the Panhandle, a campaign for honest, Parihandle-oriented representation for our district in Washington. The man from Chevy Chase, Maryland, does not, will not and can not represent our views because he does not even know uo. You can be sure that the incumbent will say anything, do anything, that he wiH stop at nothing to promote himself in office. It will be a rough campaign, but we shall win, and in so doing the people of this district shall win."
