PAGE "'4 5b'f lignum Report From Ausfm- Texans More Interested In Water At The Moment Than Politic By VERN SAXFORD AVJSTIX — i.Sp- -- Politicians art? waving their banners. Parly leader.* SC-O'H. to rally '.heir cohort*!. But right now Texans arc far more concerned about V.'1'.ter. Farm and c-uy dwellers alike are hard hit. Years of drought hnvo added up. Sizzling summer temperatures, unabalod since the Ins; of May. have fin- i.s^C'd oif crop prospects for 1656 in many areas. Kew expect relief before the of summer. Most despaired Eomo time ago of rains that would "re-ally bivak" the drought. In Austin and elsewhere attention focused on the ott-r-r.-bitter scrambles for dwindling streamflows. Prolonged P.r.f. frequently heate-;! testimony has been hoard by the State Board" of "Water Engineers on water rights from the proposed Canyon Dam in South Central Texas. San Antonio sought permission to take 100.000 acre fei ;. of water annually from the darn. It is the only w:<y. pairi San Antonio officials, that the city can ir.sH't its future water needs. Guadalupe Bianco River Authority strenuou.-iy oppose^ the recise*;. Joine-u by c-iti7« i-f some 2t> y:;?aS! towns in the area GBR.A contended that the <:'y aikva'ion woui.-j not leave r-noiiih for v.rr'am users, nor enouch ;o operate a hydro-eiei- \r'<: ;>,:ini :.« c.\»ci-ted to ;ontinue for sevvra! weeks. Ultimate decision probably will set a precedent for future controversies. Farther South, the Rio Grande reached its lowest point since it stopped flowing; completely in 193?,. Falcon Dam was shut down, and a watermaster was appointed to ration the dwindling supply among Valley cities. Legislators making up the state water resources committee cnme out with an idea for the future. They proposed a $100.000,000 Texas Water Development Fund. Controversy over whether to finance water conservation by an ad-valorem or water-use tax defeated the program 'last session. This new approach of financing through bonds would by-pass the difficulty, said proponents. But it would take a long time. First, legislative action; then a constitutional amendment by the people. Meanwhile farmers ar? leaving their parched fields and looking for work in town to support their families. LABOR X'XTOXS ARK ACTIVE — Members of Texas' labor unions are working hard to place. Ub- cr:i's in control of state and party offices. And. a politically-confident tone prevailed among some '..000 delegates at the State Federation of Labor convention, here. Union labor loaders, who played a mighty important part in ousting 1 the conservatives from con- irol of the Democratic party, have openly announced that they will campaign to: 1. Fleet Ralph Y.'irbor- ough governor; 2. Elect legislators friendly to labor; 3. Defeat Lt. Gov. Ben Ramsey; 4. Gnin control of the state Democratic- convention in September; and 5. Elect Liberals to the State Department Executive Committee. LABOR LAW DECISION PEXDIXG—Tcxns' right- to-work law now awaits state Supreme Court ruling, possibly July II. Opponents and backers of the law clashed sharply in final arguments before the court. Union attonv-ys declared that the Texas case parallels a .Nebraska suit in which the U. S. Supreme Court recently voided that state's right-to-work law in the railway industry. Railrod attorneys objected strenuously. They declared the Texas case presents much broader issues. Said Ally. Gen. John Ben Shepperd, in behalf of the Texas law, "The issue before" this court is the right of any Texas citizen to work in his chosen occupation without being- forced to give iille.gianc*' !.-> any organization which might be against his personal beliefs." NEW HIGHWAY POLICY -.- An important new step in state policy has been announced by the Texas Highway Commission, for admini.sterin'-- the new Federal highway aid program. If and when the state provides it more money, the commission will begin to assume part of the heavy cost of right-of-way—now borne wholly by cities and counties. This for highways of the primary state system not included in the new federal interstate system. CAPITOL AREA TO BE DOUBLED — Plans for a vastly expanded, 25-square-block Capitol area have been unveiled by the State Building- Commission. Originally the commission had outlined plans'for extending- the grounds northward two full blocks to loth street. This would provide space for the new office building and state courts building, due to be started sometime next fall. In adopting the official Capitol master plan the commission designated future Capitol area all' the way to 19th street and pinpointed locations of two more future office buildings. LOCAL OPTION ELECTION VOIDED — A local option liquor election is not legal if hold in an area less than an entire justice precinct. By this ruling the Third Court of Civil Appeals made "wet" a large section, of Austin which had been "dry" for 21 years. It cast doubt on similarly hold elections over the state. The decision is subject to review by the Supreme Court. MEMO: From The Sun News Desk By Presfon Pendergrast POET AMONG l"S OXE OF OUR enterprising; staff members. Judy Dnvis. better known as the "Elizabeth Taylor of Baytown," waxed poetic on the Fourth of July in a request to the editorial desk for permission to leave. Everybody else 'in the front once' had the Fourth off except J-jdy. so i* was understandable that sho! at leas; a par! of the day off. She had been •Sold '-he day before that if she'd be kind enough to eomr in and operat" the switchboard and read proofs for us until we got the paper wrapped up she could have the rest of the day off. -About. 30 .minutes before we got ready V "Shove" the last page of the Independence Day edition, Judy handed us this poem; "I hope you won't be mad at rne: I'm about to sneak away. '•You forgot what I did not . . . Today's a holiday:'' We never could, resist good poetry so Judy got the rest of the riay off. DIFFICULT JOB WE ARE THANKFUL they didn't call on us to be one of the judges in the annual Baytown Bathing Beauty contest at P.oseland Park on the Fourth. It would have been a most difficult job to choose three of the prettiest girls from that group of lovelies. Those who didn't win a prize shouldn't feel badly at all. It was simply that the judges had to make a decision and couldn't select but three from the group. Our congratulations to the three beauties: Miss Jenny Gray of La Porte, first place winner; Miss Joyce Williams of Crosby, second place, and Miss Priscilla Biakeney of Say town, third place. Miss Gray's sponsor was Branson Theater. If you don't think P.ufus Honeycutt knows a beautiful girl when he sees one—weli 1 MOQXSHIXE WORST RACKET KENRY STEEGER, publisher of Argosy magazine, calls the manufacture and sak- of moonshine liquor "America's Biggest Racket." This is the title of an article in his magazine. Hteeg-cr says that "what really disturbed me . . . when we at the Argosy began examining the bogus j:c,,;or situation last year . . . were the wide discrepancies lhat appeared in figures cited i>y the various establishments concerned with the problem. "It wag net that we doubted the integrity of any sei of figures we came upon. The difference, it soon became clearly observable, occurred wholly because of differing points of approach. So we decided to make our own independent computations, on a basis of the various statistics and other information we had come by. "The resui's were rather surprising. We used our own figure?, along; with publication of the government's somewhat, different estimates. There are. of course, a number of ways in which calculations of volume in an illegal undertaking; can be projected from, a framework of known basic statistics. "LB!. as you know, used a number of these methods, in conjunction with a number of field findings of its own. and arrived at an estimated total for 1955 in the neighborhood of 70 million gallons of illegal, tax-evaded liquor. "That would mean that something near one-fourth of the liquor consumed in the United States last 3'ear was completely phony stuff, produced and peddled by moonshining racketeers. "On the other hand, statistics compiled by federal authorities reflected a much smaller estimated total —with about one-twelfth the overall volume acknowledged as bogus." These arc interesting facts. One thing that makes them interesting to us is that we come from a moonshine-producing state, which at one time boasted the title of king of the moonshine producers. One of the reasons why Tennessee produces so much "shine," as the natives call it, is because the state is so mountainous. Moonshiners use pack mules to carry corn and sugar to almost inaccessible spots, and the only way you car, spot a "still" is by the wispy blue smoke rising from a ravine. Then you're not certain. It could be a camper. We've seen a lot of "revenooers" come out of those hills empty-handed, with skinned shins, torn clothing and cursing every breath. ARE YOU A FI.SJ1EKMAX?
