' Page 4 ftfjr Saglnnra 'fat Report From Austin Texas Gets Set For Long Battle On Policy Of Interposition AUSTIN —i'Sp.)~ A Jong battle for interposition' action begins in Texas next week. At its Tuesday meeting: in Houston the State Democratic Executive Committee will answer Gov, Allan Shivers' proposal to place the interposition question on the .primary ballot Reports also are to be made by the party's legal subcommittee and the Texas Committee on School Segregation. Both have been studying the suggested interposition referendum. Governor Shivers is expected to ask voters to join his crusade against federal encroachment by giving the legislature a mandate for interposition. Ke will address the committee at a night meeting to which all Democrats from the Houston area, are invited. Later, Shivers will visit various parts of the nation. He -will talk to leaders, without regard to party, and make speeches to r-r^n nation-wide support for the interposition movement. Also on the executive committee's agenda will be the laying of groundwork for the upcoming convention battles. Liberal-loyalists have indicated clear- ly that they intend to fight the conservative party leadership at precinct, county and state meeting's. SPEAKER SAM Raybum's proposal that Texaa Democratic convention delegates be chosen who will support Senator Lyndon Johnson as the favorite son candidate for presidential nomination, won general approval. • . Rayburn's suggestion that Johnson be made chairman of the delegation was endorsed by liberals, but brought no reply from the conservatives. TEXAS REPUBLICANS will bypass the holding of primaries this year. They will concentrate on the general election. At their Austin meeting the State Executive Committee agreed (D to nominate by convention; (2) to hold precinct conventions May 5, county conventions May S and the state conventions May 22 in Houston; and (.3) to focus efforts on the reelection in November of President Eisenhower and Dallas Congressman Bruce Alger, Texas' only Republican congressman. Texas' delegation to the national GOP convention is expected to 'be solidly pro-Eisenhower, but the touchy question of a vice presidential nominee has been carefully avoided. PUBLIC HEALTH officials are in disagreement over a proposal to delay third polio shots in order to extend the dwindling vaccine supply to more people. A two-shot plan was endorsed by the Public Health Service in Washington. Such a plan would stretch the'still-short supply of vaccine to cover 25 to 30 million persons, officials said. Dr. Henry A. Holle. Texas health commissioner, turned thumbs down. He said the difference between two shots and three "could be the difference between having- paralytic polio and not having it." Texas' supply is almost exhausted. However, a rush order of 150,000 cubic centimeters of the vaccine is expected to arrive before the end of the month. One cubic centimeter is sufficient for one innoculation. Meanwhile 11 new cases of polio are reported in Texas, bringing the year's total to date to 121. MORE THAN SS.OOO boys now are enrolled in FFA chapters in Texas high schools. So reports Lewis B. Taylor, executive secretary of the Texas Vocational'- Agriculture Teachers Association. Biggest FFA chapter is at BurbanU High School in San Antonio, where there arc ISO members. National awards have been won by chapters-in Clifton and Whitney. Clifton boys won (iie FFA national gold emblem rating six times in a row. Five FFA boys from Whitney won the American Fanner Degree the same year. SHORT SHORTS APRIL 5 is the opening date for the old French legation in Austin. Dignitaries of the Sons and daughters of the Republic, the State and the University, will attend opening day ceremonies. Only about half of Texas' motorists have obtained auto inspection stickers so far this year. Over 150,000 cars a week will have to be checked between now and the April 15 deadline. George C. Menzies died from rabies, last January, while working- on r.n experiment with bats. Pie left a wife and four children. Austin friends of the form- er State Health Department scientists have started an educational fund for the children. Spearheading the drive is \V. N. Colson. So far less than $3,000 has been collected. More money-is needed. Contribution;; may be went to Colson at Box 691, Austin., Six insurance companies owned by W. Leo O'Daniel and his family, have fewer policies in effect t!wn the new law requires for continued operation. So reports the insurance commission. Included urc the W. Lee O'Daniel Life Insurance Co. and five others, of which O'Daniel's son, Pat, is president/ Another insurance company is out of business. But without repercussions or financial loss. Home Life and Accident Insurance Co. of Dallas voluntarily aur- _ .rendered its liccn.sn and asked that a. court-appointed receiver bo named. Frank Cain, chairman of the board, said that all policyholclers and creditors would be paul in. full and stockholders would receive more than hteir original investments. April oil allowable have been cut by G-1,159 barrels daily by the Texas Railroad Commission. Reduction to 3,356,857 barrels was effected by allowing one less producing day than In March. SUN SLANTS By Fred Hartman WRIGHT WAT TO FISH WE SHOULDN'T do this to Vernon Wright, but as far as that goes, his daughter shouldn't have done it either. She did, however, and we're g-oing to also. The pretty daughter is Beverly, P, ar.d the locale is the new Wright country acreage out in Chambers county hard by a lake. Don't -underestimate the presence of tbe lake, for therein is the crux of the story. Pop Vernon likes to go out to the spot and work around. He has a tractor and stuff l&e that there. He was -working away the other afternoon, and he heard Beverly scream. It scared Vernon prettv good, and he rushed to the attic Wright. ' He found her. screaming but happy and unhurt. She had just pulled a 10-inch bass out of the bayou. Along the shoreline she had found a piece of string with an old rusty fish hook on the end. She picked up an old cup and dipped £ couple of nines into the bayou. She came up v.-stb a minnow. She hooked the minnow to the book and tossed hook, line and bait into the water. The catch resulted. The big joke of this story is that Beverly's pa is quite some fisherman. He has boats, lines, lures, sinkers, plugs, boots, hats, buckets, and just about everything that a iisbersian could ever want in repertoire. We can't prove it. but well bet Vernon has never caught & fish anywhere near as big as the one Beverly came up with. In fact, the fish was so big Version can hardly exaggerate enough to make it a fish Story instead of the truth. He did manage to tell friends at the Rotary club that tbe fish measured five inches—-that is, five inches between the eyes. We are grateful to Miss Beverly for furnishing the data for such s fine article. It's information like this that makes people buy hometown papers. They'll read this type yarn, and then casually look at the ads. Then they'll go down to stores like Beverly's dad runs and buy merchandise—even fishing equipment So you see Vernon's younger daughter has really clone us ail a big favor. TOUGH ASSIGNMENT KIDS CAN ask embarrassing questions, like the one our own daughter asked the other night. She wanted me to define the NRA. Sure, we remember the NRA and the signs everybody put in their stores, and uproar the NRA caused during the waning: days of the depression. We. remember tough and begrizzled General Hugh Johnson, who administered the governmental agency that was a product of FDR's first years in office. We remember the famous Schechter case, the one about the chickens that had been shipped in interstate commerce, and how it was a U. S. Supreme Court ruling- on these shipped chickens that threw tbe NRA out as unconstitutional, and how FDR got mad at the court and came up with a plan to get rid of what he called the "horse arid buggy" legal decisions. We remember all of that, and we could add things by the hour. But to get back to the question in point All of this tirade failed to answer Mary's question: "Can you define the NRA?" If you think vou're so smart, how about you doing it LETOCRNEAU—REAL PERSONALITY YOU ARE ALWAYS hearing- that the most famous people are usually the most plain, and that is really proved in the case of industrialist R, D. LeTourneau. He built that offshore mobile drilling rig that was the feature of the open house ceremony in Galveston earlier in the week. We saw and heard him for the first time. It was worth the trip to Galveston just to get to hear the Longview heavy construction man. Ke is a blustery sort of personality, and you can. see in his makeup that "he believes nothing is impossible. He's as plain as a farm hand'who works by the clay, but he also has a driving personality. When he gets strung out, he's a wonderful talker. We -would H^e to have a chance to hear him at greater length some day. Millions of $S don't faze him. Neither does any other assignment. The world could use a good many more LeTourneaus. SHOCKING NEWS TOO OFTEN A newspaper is forced to print shocking news, and certainly news of the death of our good friend, Bill Montgomery, is as shocking ae any news we've read in a long time. We knew Bill Montgomery almost since the day we came to Baytown. If there ever was a person in this community who didn't like Bill, we have never met him. Bill was a. man's man with, love of the outdoors. Our professional penchant for food—that Bill knew ar.d appreciated—brought us together many times in the past When Bill Montgomery presided at the preparation of barbecue, you knew it had to be the. best He used to laughingly tip us off when and where the big doin's would be staged. We always tried to be on hand. We feel a great personal loss in the death of Bill Montgomery- Our sympathy, sincerely felt, is offered to Ruth, Jimmy and. Sandra. ADJUSTED—UPWARD WE WERE JUST getting ready to go into the oil drilling business and punch a couple of holes in Baytown, but we see now that we have waited too long. Tbe city council has passed an ordinance that doubled the fee. Even though such action knocked us out of the drilling business, we think the city fe justified in its effort. As long as the drilling was centered in the old Goose Creek field that for years had been an oil field, the old fee might have been enough. But now it seems that most of the drilling is in the densely populated residential districts, and certainly the hazards are much greater, and the city will have to exercise much more supervision. That costs money, and the person doing the drilling is responsible for the extra city expense. He should be the one who pays the freight. There's this much about it. If you don't ever drill a well, it won't make much difference what tbe fee amounts to. MEMO: From The Sun News Desk TEXAS POLITICAL champions of S«n. Price Danic-l and W. Lee (Pappy O'Daniel should not lose sight of the fact that if Price decides to run) there may be .some mistaken voting in the gubernatorial election because of the similarity of the names — O'Daniel and Daniel. It is our opinion that a very definite hazard to both candidates cxlsis. For people in s. hurry to vote and get it off their minds, it wo'jld be an easy mistake to make-— to pull the O'DarJti lever on the voting- machine when you intended to pull the Daniel lever, and vice versa. ThiE, of course-, will depend upon the way the ticket is handled in the voting machine. That js, wheiher a voter will cast his vole for the entire ticket or vote for .separate- candidates. "Pappy" is in the race. Ke c-ame oj*. .siugg-ing after eight years in political retirement with tne promise of a ''no holds barred crusade for clean, honest government.' 1 Texans remember that "Pappy'' made history in 3938 when he became the first Texan to win & first- term Democratic gubernatorial nomination without a runoff primary. How did hf do it? That question, .'ike several oth- <!r.s in the nation's political history, hs.$ never been satisfactorily yn.swc.-red. Xor is it lik«5y to be. There have bwn times when the American people have appear^'.! to be ai.-c-ep v.-;;en they went to the polls. That may have been the- case with Texans who;: tboy ser.i O'bamel to Austin.

Advertising Rcpre«eist«tt»»: Aerric* By Prejton Pendergras* AS TOU R.EAD this we will be well on our wav to the dear old hills of Tennessee, the glorious land that produced such famous Texans as Sam Houston, Davy Crockett, Sam Rayburn. et al, to name a few. Of course, old Davy didn't live long enough after he got here to be called a native Texan. But the .short time he lived he defended the great .State of Texas the same way he would have defended the Volunteer State. One of the Houston papers printed a story recently, illustrated with pictures which said the ancestors of Sam Houston were believed to have lived in Houston. Scotland, many years ago. The pictures showed the sleep];,- little town of Houston, located near the thriving industrial city of Glasgow. It seems Giasgowers wanted to live in a big housing project near Houston to get away from the bustle of the big city, but the city fathers of Houston turned down the offer flat. Houston, Texas, car. have its freeways and mushrooming- industries, but Houston, Scotland, wants none of either. It prefers to remain what it has been for centuries—a sleepy little town where nobody has to worry too much about where the next mea! is coming from and where there's not much work to be done. Success Secrets By Elmer Wheeler POWELL B- McHAXEY L< a busy man with varied interests that keep him on the go. A resident of St. Louis. Mo., McHaney is president of Genera] American Insurance Company, and in the course of his business he tras'els more than 50,000 miles a year. He was a student at the University of Missouri and later was named president of the University's Board of Curators. Jn addition, he contributes both time ;>.n<l effort to civic responsibilities, for which he won th<> 3954 St. Louis award. McHaney is a member of five clubs, but has little •Time to enjoy them. There is always work to be done ;ar.d McHaney isn't one to turn away from it. And if he has any spare time, he wants to spend it with his young son, playing baseball or going fishing. He seldom takes a real vacation. Instead, he slips off for the weekend frequently, taking his son on a fishing trip, or the entire family to a football game. In spite of his busy schedule, McHaney looks remarkably fresh and youthful for his years—and there's a reason for his appearance, which can be found in his success secret: "IF A WAN T likes his work, 1 ' McHaney fiays, ''he doesn't need much outside relaxation or long vacations. Mental conflicts are what wear » man down. So when you're doing something yon like, you,don't waste energy thinking about all the things you'd rather be doing. I dor.'t think r«a! or lasting success can be attained in any pob, unless you like .the work. But if a man enj»ys his work and is happy doing it, he wiil -be mentally content and have a far better chance of achieving financial success as we!!."' Washington Merry-Go-Round -Benson's Boys' Minds More On Politics Than Farmers 1»66 PROBLEM CHILD Letters In "Three-D"-Nationals The By HAKMAX W. MCHOT.S WASHINGTON —UP— Our Nats may not win the American League flag this year, but they'll be about the fanciest Dans in baseball. For instance, the letter "W" on their shirts will be in 3-D, lika in the flickers. The navy blue letter has a white edge with ;i scarlet edge sticking out beyond that. Bill Flester of the Wilson Sporting Goods outlet here has just returned from Orlando, Fla., where the Nats are flexing their biceps in spring training. Bill's job was to measure the 42- man squad — including Manager Chuck Dressen and the coaches — for new suits. Since only 25 men will be carried when the season opens, some of the extra suits will have to be packed. A lot of them maybe never will be worn. "Cal Griffith hopes that in the event of any future trades the extra suits will fit," Bill said. Each ball hawk must have six suits. Three white ones for "ft home" entertainment, and three gray ones for the road. The management provides the pants, shirts. cap. stockings nnd belt. These corne at $60 a copy. ) The kids must buy their own gloves, shoes and T-shirts. Those incidentals run info money, too. "A good catcher's mitt costs at least $39,95," Bill said. "And a catcher must have at least two. One to use all of the time and another which he breaks in a little bit at a time. No catcher is worth his diamond dust without a 'well broke-in' mitt." The club also buys the catcher's shin-guards, protectors and mask.

T-shirts are not expensive, but shoes come at S25 a pair. And if a fly snngg-er works hard at it he can wear out at least three pairs a season. Bats arc expensive, too. The clubs furnish bats but some of the big stars prefer to buy tailor-made bats of their own. and devil take the bat lad who hands a man the wrong stick. Manager Bresson, who is built close to the diamond, was hard to fit. Being- short, his shirt nnd pnnts have to have about three inches sawed off. He's pretty flush around the middle, too, but since he has elected to boss from the bench Chuck doesn't figure to kick through too many pairs of shoes. The bat boy isn't much of a problem. He won't be trailed and he doesn't travel. Grab Bag Of Easy Knowledge The Answer, Quick! 1. Is it true that vernicosc leaves appear varnished? 2.

WASHINGTON. — Ezra Taft Benson may not know it, but a conflict-of-interest political blow-up is simmering right under his nose. Jt involves Cnri O.. Hanson, .state director of the Farmers' Home Administration in Montana. The farmers' Home Ad*ministration is supposed to spend Us entire time on the dif'icult problem of helping the small farmer. It is supposed to g-o right into the formers' homes and aid with their economic problems. Especially, it is supposed to help the small farmer in time of drought. However, there is conclusive evidence that instead of helping KMttll farmers, FHA St'ate Director Hanson has bMn acting as a wool-buyer for tho Draper Co. of Boston, also hf-ip- ing direct the affairs of radio-TV station KOOK in Billings, ami charging up political long-diatanec calls to the government. He was also spending 1 , part of his time nnd somo government money in nn abortive effort to fleet Wesley D'Ewart to tho senate in violation of the Hatch Act. Government officials are banned by the Hatch Act from rr.sagins in politics unless they nrc of cabinet or little cabinet rank. THE ACTIVITIES of Mr. Carl 0. Hanson arc hitrhly important not, merely hf-causo r)f irrngularky in Benson's ApricuHure department b\!t because they throw light on one reason why farmers are so yore at the Secretary of Agriculture. They recognize that he has very difficult crop-surplus problems, and they would b<> more .sympathetic with crop surpluses if it were not for the manner in which Benson's officials have spent their time politicking and helping big companies rather thnn small farmers. For instance. Secretary Eenyon himself, on Oct. 9. 3954. jn.'rsnnally ur.tj publicly drrrsamk 1 the d'-forst of Sen. .isme. 1 : Murray of Montana and !,h<: election of GOP Con. Wesley D'Ewart. Imm'.'iliuli-ly Benson's boys in the Agriculture department took the cue and went into high-gear—not for the farmer anu his difficult problems, but for 'candidate D'Ewart. This was during i.lie traffic drought of 1D5!. Despite that, F.irmc-r.s' Home Director Hanson made more, than 100 long-distance calls .'or nrivnic or political purposes and ailowe.i them to be charged itn to the taxpayer. This column ha.s obtained n record of Hanson's supposedly official phono calls nt that time, -'i.nci they show that hi" even phoned D'Ewart r\t thu Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu. Dec. IS. 135-1.

It was nlyo at a time wh":i H:'.n- son should have been working his h'M'l off to help fiirmers borrow money to meet the drought disaster. INSTEAD. HE \vas employing persons whose .services he, used for unofficial and political purpose*;, including hi;i personal and private business. John Costcllo, appointed by Hfinscn, acted r-.s chauffeur n:ul errand boy. including wool-purchase duties for Hanson. Darrrll Coovcr. appointed by Hiinsnn, served 1 for one month, not on FHA businesii. but purely u;; a political organizer. Mrs 4 . Kathcrine Carter, Hanswn's private secretary, reported that on .some days .she "wrote as many a.s fourteen letters not pertaining to FHA official business." The personal letter.* .shi- wrote for him on office time inc'nuletl letters "to Mr. Malcolm Green, president. Draper Co., .Boston, as Tour Business and financial prospects wire excellent.

What makes the farmers' blood boil is that the state directors o! the Farmers' Home Atfministra- tion under Charley Bran nan. all career civil survlre jnen, were ousted by Benson. They had kept out of politics, concentrated on the problem of. helping farmers. Iv;'j::-on. however, removed their civil ..;i>rvice .standing which ir,ada them open to firing.
