Railroad Commissioner Jim Langdon is a 49-year- old native Texan with a •winning record in public office. When John Connally appointed him to the Railroad Commission, ihe Governor said: "I have for several weeks been attempting to find a man I consider to have outstanding ability, integrity and honor . . . I am happy we have found that man — Judge Jim C. Langdon." Jim Langdon has fully lived up to Governor ^ nally's expectations. He has conducted his office in the spirit of Governor Jim Hogg, who had the Commission set up in 1891 to iook after the public interest in railroad and freight rates. It now regulates also truck and bus rates and the production of oil and gas. Judge Langdon will continue to keep transportation rates in line and see to it that our oil reserves are protected against waste and greed. This will help keep down Texas gasoline prices, already among the lowest in the nation.
