"In itjs present form the so- called ciyir rights bill poses the greatest' threat to our constitutional liberties since the Supreme Court overthrew an al- mostf identical act in 1883,"< Mc- Lenclon ' declared. Ke asserted that increased job opportunities', a problem which figures in both the •_ civil rights debate and the administration's "war on poverty," can be assured only by freeing business from bureaucratic restraints to promote business expansion. ' McLendon safid Texas has found a satisfactory solution to the problem of medical care for the aged by implementing the Kerr-Mills law and the Texas- 65 program, .both based on the principle of voluntary health insurance. Reiterating his opposition to federal aid to and control over schools, McLendon advocated encouragement of a "realistic tax exemption for families supporting students in higher education." McLendon pointed out that his opponent, incumbent Senator Ralph Yarborough, helped defeat an amendment which would have written a $1200 college exemption into a new tax bill.

END THE 8-DAY ALLOWABLE FAMINE PROTECT PROPERTY RIGHTS STOP FRESH WATER POLLUTION WITH JUDGE Everybody Loves a* Bargain. I T'S a grand feeling to come across a real Bargain, In fact, it's almost like finding money. But all purported Bargains are not; while many routine purchases are bigger Bargains than we realize. For instance, practically everything we buy in our home community stores is a Bargain. It's a Natural Law of Economics... that the costs of community building and operating must be included in the prices we pay. And if that part of our money goes to build and operate somebody else's community instead of ours, it's no Bargain.
