Fiv* C«nh Pw Copy ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM—As Jesus and His disciples approached Jerusalem to observe the Passover, He told two of them, "Go ye into the viiiage over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him/' The disciples did as they had been commanded and, with Jesus seated upon the colt, the band resumed its journey into Jerusalem. As they proceeded, multitudes spread their garments and the branches of trees in the way, crying "Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest." And they proclaimed, "This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee." news in brief !!

Harriman has consistently said he is an hwctivc candidate. Many Southern Democrats find She thought of Kefauver as their party's standard bearer unpleasant. Some are even more opposed to Harriman. A convention fight between Ke- fr.uver and Harriman for the nomination would leave many Southerners with HUle choice. A highly placed Southern politi- cr,l fipn-n already has predicted flatiy that a .splinter group will be farmed in the wake of the Democratic national convention. He said he is convinced the convention will nominate a candidate and write a platform that will be unacceptable to Southerners because o f the racial segregation issue.

Over 325 In Early; Late Rush Is Seen Baytonians had cast over 325 votes in. the housing issue at 11 a.m. Saturday, and election officials predicted that voting would •be "heavy" before the day Is over. While the figure seemed low in view of the intense interest shown in the housing issue the past week, officials at almost every box said that voting was heavier than, usual "at this hour." Both sides were- waging vigorous get-out-the-vote campaigns. There was no «ount of the votes cast, for or against additional housing in Baytown, but unofficial observers at the polls believed that the 'antis" were casting more. early votes than those in favor, of the construction of additional units at Sam Houston and, Lincoln Courts. Several persons who had not previously rendered property for taxation went by the tax office in the city hall to render personal property to establish, eligibility lor voting;. , Only tax paying property owners with a poll tax receipt may vote on the housing issue since elections concerning the housing authority must be conducted as a. bond " election. City Attorney George Chandler has ruled. Voting is taking place at Precinct 300, Wilkenfeki's, Thad Felton's Precinct 101. City Hall;. Precinct 1-19 San Jacinto school: Precinct 24S.

Price Daniel will announce his candidacy for governor of Texas Monday night in a speech that "is already written." the Dallas Morning News predicted Saturday in a page one story by its political writer. Allen Duckworth. In Washington. Daniel declined to confirm the report. He told the United Press. "I assume that's just a prediction. I will not announce my decision one way or the other until Monday night.'' Duckworth wrote. "He will make a flat announcement in a radio-television broadcast.'' Daniel made a similar speech two weeks ago in which he said he would run for governor if. the people of Texas wanted him to. He asked Texans to write him their views and reported later he had received thousands of communications urging him to run. Duckworth's story in Saturday's News said, "A friend of Daniel predicts that the response will have reached 50,000 by the time the senator speaks Monday night." The News also said the""outlook . is for the biggest field of candidates, seeking- to succeed Gov. Allan Shivers, since the wide-open race of 1M6 after Coke Stevenson announced ho would not ask reelection."
