Nixon Campaign Head In Texas Is Appointed AUSTIN (APi - Former Dallas Mayor Erik Jonsson will direct President Nixon's reelection campaign in Texas, Republican Party officials announced today. Jonsson said he thought Nixon, would carry Texas "by a comfortable margin." Headquarters for the Texas Committee to Re-Elect the President will be in Austin, and Jonsson said, "We will be busy organizing right away." Jonsson's appointment was made by former U.S. Atty. Gen. John Mitchell, Nixon's national campaign director. "The independence of the people of Texas is well known, and, I predict, that independence will be in evidence this fall when tens of thousands of Democrats and independents join Texas Republicans in guaranteeing the President their 26 electoral votes," Mitchell said in a telegram to Jonsson. Jonsson said he did not know what role former Gov. John Connally, who recently resigned as Nixon's treasury secretary, would play in the campaign. "He is a conservative man with a strong patriotic instinct that won't be denied. If he is called on to perform any duty that fits his abilities, I am sure he would do it," Jonsson said. With Jonsson at a capitol news conference were Mrs. Tobin Armstrong of Armstrong, Tex., co-chairman of the Republican National Committee, and Rep. Fred Agnich of Dallas, GOP national committeeman. "We feel if, as appears to be the case, the Democratic Party has an extremist at the top of its ticket, it will have left the middle-of-the-road Democrats of this state and they will be looking to President Nixon," Mrs. Armstrong said. A newsman said Mrs. Armstrong appeared to be speaking of U.S. Sen. George McGovern, D-S.D., and asked Jonsson if he felt McGovern was an "extremist." PAMPA. TEXAS DAIIY NEWS 3 86th YEAR Tuesday. June 20, 1972 Fourth Of In Western July Style To Be Marked In Red River The Fourth of July will be celebrated in true Western style in Red River, N.M., this year, according to Red River Mayor David Stults. New Mexico is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a state this year and special events are taking place all over the state, but the ''Mountain Playground", as Red River is called, is going "all out" to re-create the days when the little mountain valley town was a mining center and the miners always came into town to celebrate "The Fourth!" Mayor Stults said that Mitch Hanna, manager of the Red River Ski Area is in charge of the festivities. During the entire four-day celebration, anyone in town without a beard or a moustache will have to buy a button saying "I Tried" and wear it throughout the time he is there. There will be special prizes awarded for the ladies in the most authentic "old time" dresses. "The whole town is really getting ready for this," Mitch Hanna said in a telephone interview this week. The festivities start Saturday with a hayride and music and dancing in the streets. The evening will be climaxed by a huge bonfire. SINCE 1506, when they were formed by Pope Julius II, these Swiss Guards and their predecessors have been the personal guard of the Pope at the Vatican, Rome. These present-day guards stand at attention for a ceremony. Supreme Court Upholds Decision On Baseball More Supermarkets Open All Night, Survey Shows Associated Press Writer It's getting easier to buy groceries at 3 a.m. in the United States, but harder to fill a prescription, buy a tank of gasoline or go out for a meal in the early hours. A rising tide of supermarkets have switched in the past few months from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. hours to 24-hour operation, bucking a trend among other consumer facilities that threatens to remake America's big cities in the image of small towns that roll up the sidewalks at night. A survey shows that while many more supermarkets are open all night, the number of all-night drug stores, gas stations and restaurants is shrinking. And the new 24-hour operations are being opened in suburbs, not in central cities. Their trade depends on the more mobile life style and lower crime rates of suburbia. Last year, four per cent of the 35,000 supermarkets with over $500.000 business a year were open all night, mostly on the West Coast where such oft,. erations began several years ago, according to Bill Bishop, head of research at the Super Market Institute. But in the last six months in the Midwest and the last two months on the East Coast, the number of chains with 24-hour operations has grown so fast that no up-to-date figures are available. Dominick's. Jewel, and Red Owl food stores in Illinois and Wisconsin are trying 24-hour operations at selected stores. Food Fair is putting 45 of its supermarkets in Philadelphia on 24 hours. The largely suburban Pathmark chain in New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania has had 92 of its 96 supermarkets open 24 hours since May 7. Some Safeway stores in the Washington area have gone to 24-hour operation. Wrigley's put 14 stores in the Detroit suburbs, 5 in Ann ArMr and 5 in outlying Michigan cities on 24-hour operation June 14. One Pathmark store on Long Island recently had enough business at 1 a.m. to keep nine checkout lanes busy. ' McGovern Denounces Break-In Associated Press Writer Sen. George S. McGovern Monday denounced the weekend break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington by five men with wiretapping devices as shocking and a "legacy of years of snooping." Asked whether he blamed the Republican party for the incident, McGovern said he had no evidence that would implicate the Republican party or its leaders. One of the men arrested in the case was employed by both the GOP National Committee and a Nixon re-election committee. Both the National Committee and the re-election committee denied any involvement. The South Dakotan, frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination spoke at a news conference in New York after canceling upstate campaign appearances for Tuesday's primary to show sympathy with the international airline pilots'strike.

His fancy was taken by a fishing village named Cannes. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court Monday upheld a lower court decision and refused to throw out professional baseball's reserve clause. The decision was made in the celebrated Curt Flood case on a 5-3 vote. In its decision, the court did, however, conclude that baseball is a business engaged in interstate commerce. The decision, delivered by Justice Harry A. Blackmun, said "if there is any inconsistency or illogic in all of this, it is an inconsistency and illogic of longstanding that is to be remedied by the Congress and not by this court." The suit was argued in the court by former Justice Arthur J. Goldberg. He said there was no logical reason to treat baseball differently than other professional sports which have less-rigid player contracts and are subject to the antitrust laws. Blcakmun agreed that the exemption granted baseball is "an aberration" and "an exception and an anomaly." But, he said, Congress has had a long time to do something about it and the fact that it did not indicates more than "mere congressional silence and passivity." In fact, he said, the Court "has concluded that Congress has had no intention to subject baseball's reserve system to the reach' of the antitrust statutes." The target of Flood's suit was the reserve system which binds a player to the team which holds his contract. If a professional ballplayer refuses to agree to the salary offered by that team, he cannot play for any other. Flood, backed by the players' union, brought his damage suit against baseball after the Cardinals traded him to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1969. He wanted to be made a "free agent." at liberty to play for a team of his choosing. Flood, a former All-Star, is now out of the game and living abroad. Sunday will be highlighted by a real old-time "tug-o-war" across the Red River. Five man teams will compete in trying to pull the others into the river. This was the kind of "play" the miners engaged in during their heyday, each group trying to prove that it was the strongest. In the old days, different mining camps up in the mountains would choose their teams before they came to town and wager heavily on their "boys". An old-fashioned barbeque will be held Sunday night with everyone in town invited, Hanna said. Monday will be devoted to such things as "potato sack races," a watermelon eating contest and other "games" at the Red River Community House with a street dance in the Ski Area parking lot climaxing Monday's festivities. Tuesday the 4th is the big day. Floats and other parade units are scheduled to come from as far away as Kansas and Texas to take part in the big parade. The awards for the best beard and the best dressed lady will be presented and one of the girls who participated in the Queen contest will be crowned. "We're really looking forward to this," Hanna said. "We know that there will be lots of people here, and we really want to show them what Red River was like 50 years ago."
