Thursday, March 22,1956 BEFORE the legendary Easter Bunny arrives Sunday, April 1 — a sure sign of spring — thousands of colorful Easter cards will pass through the post office in every city and to\vn in the United States. It is perfectly proper, according to the National Association of Greeting Card publishers, to write a little note on'the cards. And mailing them first class will insure prompt delivery, forward- Ing or return. This year's Easter cards are flowery, and colorful, and their messages are cheerful, rtverent, sentimental or "special title." (International) 'One Side Of Picture' STATE CANDIDAT LAREDO TIDIES P LAST! AUSTIN —UP— A South Texas candidate for the state Senate Wednesday accused the Laredo Times, published bv William Prescott Allen, of giving its readers only one side of the Webb county political siory. C. B. W. Dick of Laredo, the candidate, is seeking the 21st senatorial post now held by. Abraham Kazen Jr. Both are of Laredo. Dick aired his accusations in a •ux-pngc telegram addressed to Attorney General John Ben Shepperd" as "the chief law enforcement officer ot this state." Publisher of the Laredo Times es well as newspapers in Colorado r.nd Alaska, Allen is crusdaing ngain.st corruption in stale government and Monday pinpointed an attack on lobbyists, whom he said "are the real rulers of Texas." In recent weeks. Alien has called for civic house-cleanings at both Austin and Fort Worth, and in the latter town lie spent a. night in jail for refusing to tell a Tarrant county grand jury the source of his information. Shepperd has suggested Allen clean up his own backyard, and in a verbal exchange with 'die Laredo publisher said that Allen "never" raised a voice about the corrupt machine in Duval county and in Webb county." However, Shepperd expressed belief Tuesday Webb county was "prctfv well cleaned up in 1953 and the first .part of 1954." He said political reforms started at that time In Duval county spread not Here And There ...

It was in 1954 that Shepperd, seeking re-election as attorney general, carried Webb county by 7,123 votes to 1S3 for Doug Crouch, his opponent. "The charges leveled by William Proscott Allen at other communities become a horrible farce to anyone living in this part of the coiintiy." Dick said in his complaint to Shepperd. '•We have a situation here that can only be compared to Jersey City or Phoenix (sic.) City at their worst, am! I appeal to you to help us in our present campaign to clean x:p this disgrace to our stale and nation," he continued. Shcpprnl said his office would investigate Dick's accusations "within the limits our authority." That moans Shepperd will have to determine first whether any o£ Dick's charges involve use of state funds. If state funds arc not involved, the attorney general has little, if any, authority in such mat let's. ••We nre satisfied by our evidence that equal protection of the Jnw stops at the party line," Dick said. "The district attorney has veto power of statements of opposing political party given to Laredo Times. And during this campaign details of recent jail break show- in:' corruption in local jail not printed by the Laredo Times,'' he continued. "Laredo Times is rewarded with fat political advertisements...re- iv,-:it statement of candidate opposing machine candidate was not printed though requested of the Laredo Times. The statement was not libelous nor salacious but merely opixising the view of the machine on a trivial matter," Dick said. "The Laredo Times." Dick continued, "is only judge of what constitutes 'civic leader.' one of their favorite titles. Strangely enough, title almost always refers only to machine politicians and supporters." Dick said that for two years he h:i? had to "give my side of political events" to a Corpus Christ! newspaper "in order 10 get it published." "The only reason I know of that they ever publish any view in op- ixisition to the machine view is because other rcpers are publishing it. Since World War II. so fai- ns' I know, the Laredo Times has .•'Iways represented this vicious machine and no one else," he said. Dick also charged nepotism, vote-buying and violation of civil liberties in connection with administration rif both the city government, in Laredo and the county r.uvi-'.'umont. ' lie charged city, county and school i lisa-id employes who "step out of line" loso their job. "So far, only a preliminary check of qualified voters' poll t':x list delivered by county tax collector to county clerk on March 10, iD.'iu, shows already several hundred illegal poll taxes, im-lud- ing <!oad people, same person holding two ami three poll taxes in some precincts, several unknown names registered at vacant lots, ilor.ons of incidents of poll taxes being delivered to people who didn't buy any, including somo who were away from Webb county during the whole poll tax poriod,,."
