Speaker Bruce King, l)-Santa Fe, today said he would accept an appointment to head New Mexico's Democratic party as chairman during the coming general election campaign. King would replace former Gov. John E. Miles ?n the post. Miles last week announced he would resign as state chairman this summer. "If they want me to be chairman and offer it to me I expect 1 would accept," King said. King also said he would be seeking reelection as Speaker of the House in the New Mexico Legislature. He has served since 1963 in that post. King's selection for the post reportedly came from T. E. (Gene) Lusk, the Democratic party's choice for governor in last week's party primary election.

Crops Endangered By Moisture Lack By United Press International Lack, of sufficient moisture has endangered New Mexico's dryland wheat crop, the U. S. and New Mexico Agriculture Departments said Monday in their weekly crop report. Harvest of the majority of wheat in the southeast portion presently was unlikely because of little springtime rains, the agencies said. Irrigated wheat, however, was in good condition statewide with a large per cent heading out. Approximately 70 per cetvt of the cotton crop is planted with 35 per cent up to stand. Surface and subsoil moisture through the state was short with 'only a few isolated exceptions. Light rains last week .brought some relief to central and north east portions of the state. Onion harvesting will begin ir> late May. Ranges are in fair condition but badly In need of rain. Livestock are in poor condition as range feed continues affected by lack of rain. fTHome of Dole Lee Sherwood Memorial I/SHERWOOD ; Mortuaru -_— * M C -*— * c/ov/v Only 100%' , Home Owned Mortuary Troy L Sherwood 920 Main St. Charles V.
