Price Daniel, vhose long and illustrious y-ub'.v service lends great weight to his ri'iv:ro. has proposed TO remedy what The >un ''cnsider? two of the most important probivins facing the people of Texa? \vnur conservation and the pas- sap:' of la\vs to eurh the use of narcotics. These are two of the strongest points in Sen. Daniel'? 12-point platform. "Their .strength doe? r.c-i derive from the fact that Sen. Daniel is a candidate for governor. For many years Texas has been plagued with the problem of providing enough water to meet domestic and industrial demand that has continued to out-strip all expectation. This is an indication that Texas is growing and certainly growth is no cause for alarm if it can be properly accommodated* ••i .--•- -•- v;r-v v- V;.i)f>n; in Texas •g. *•'••'• '•• . •" v. -"'••'• 's "hat each sec- tii." y' ••":\' •> .r v - >-~ entirely different p.-oi;'-" . -vYuvy.-er may be done to remc::;. .-. : .:o area might prove extremely damaging to another.

Daniel lias also cited the need for reappraisal of Texas' educational system with the aim of "making it the best in the nation." He is unalterably opposed to federal aid to education and proposes to improve the school system with Texas funds, which would include adjusting teachers' salaries to a figure at least comparable to that offered by industry to persons with comparable qualifications. Sen. Daniel realizes that the cornerstone of this democracy is the school system and lie knows that it must keep in step with the times if America is to remain strong. A thousand years will not change this pre- v-cpt. As his record proves, Sen. Daniel stands for honesty and integrity in government. Hr knows that betrayal of public trust is .- '•'•-•o that can undermine and utimately destroy free government. He wants to restore this trust in the government of Texas, and he has proposed a "grassroots" measure that would give citizens firmer control of their government and furnish them a more powerful weapon to combat misconduct and corruption in public office. An 11-member law enforcement commission, chosen by the grand jury representatives in each of Texas' judicial districts and which would have the power to subpoena witnesses and records, is Sen. Daniel's plan to solve the problem of misconduct in public office. The Sunagrees that this would be a practical way to approach the problem—one •that has brought shame to Texas. Not only that, but it has shaken the faith of our people in their government.

'Dictate 1 Demo Candidate By RAYMOND LAJITC United Prrss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP) — Sen. Estes Kefauver's campaign mnnager said today he is convinced former President Truman will not try to "dictate" the selection of the tSHG Democratic presidential nr>mir.!T'. F. Joseph Donohue, manager of Kefauver's campaign for the presidential nomination, disclosed he had slipped into New York Thursday for a conference with Mr. Truman. Mr. Truman, who returned from a European trip this week, made it clear Thursday that Kefativer is not his personal choice for the nomination. But he r.:.:.o saiu he •A-ar.ts in remain r.feun-ti. Despite ;;-..;• former freHic-Wii's public comments, Donc-hi'.e said he V.T.S "very plcaseo" with Ills rtls- cusslon v.dth Mr. Truman. Ho was once Mr. Truman's appointee to head the District of Columbin Boanl of Commissioners. 'Hr- could be neutral as a po- litic.u figure and still have a pcr- sonnl preference," Donohue told a reporter. "I'm positive he'll be neutral as fi political fijrure." Donnhiie s'ii'3 he did not make the trip to Now York to ask Mr. Truman to support Kefauver. He said ho did want to tell the former President his observations about the chances of a Democratic victory and why he regards Kefauver ns the strongest candidate. He said he cited Kefauver's "unparalleled strength" in the farm belt and the Tennessee senator's showing in presidential pri- Aith -A-.gr, '.'Cef&uver lost the iin^'i rounds of d-.f prin-iary campaign to Adlai E. Stevenson. Donohue snifl. no Democrat, could have rlon" ?.s well if Kefauver had had more campaign funds and the backing of local party organizations. Donohue said he is convinced that Mr. Truman will be neutral before and during the Democratic National Convention. "I am convinced that he has no purpose to attempt to dictate the nominee," Donohue added. "I am sure the nominee is going to be Estes Kefauver and that Mr. Tni- man will support him." While Kefauver is still carrying on his campaign, most Democratic professionals do not share Donohue's views. These Democrats hnve tended to write off the Ten- nesseean as a major contender since his defeat by Stevenson in the California primc.ry. Stevenson today w&s en a s-wing through drought areas in Iowa, Missouri find Nebraska. He v.v>.s going directly to farmers to "educate myself." about farm problems.

Washington Merry-GcrRound — Joyriding Congressmen Cost American Taxpayers Plenty By DREW PEAKSOK WASHINGTON—Most guarcfed secret since the H-bomb is how much it cost the taxpayers for last year's Congressional globe-trotting. Only a few men know the score, and they aren't telling. The tabs are still coming in from m-er 230 Senators and Con- ;.-r;:2r..-r.i'.-i who flocked overseas in :_v; l:'.g s -f-st junketing spree in ; -ngTessiuna! history. The tax- yaycrs who footed the bill, however, can't find out the total cost. However, this column has been able to check the secret vouchers turned in by Congressmen, and hr;rr arc .vj;rw <jf the amounts •'rwt. it ,'0ioi:!d be noted, in fair- ;t;>-B. Uia'. .v.'roo of the Cong-res- ;v:.--;aA trips were important and •j.-ne Congressmen did a good job ,or their country. Some, on the ether hand, were pure joyrid.es. In either case, the public is entitled 1 to know the cost. Here it is: The taxpayers paid $51,000 for a special Air Force plane to fly Congressmen Sterling Cole (R., N.Y.), O. C. Fisher (D., Tex.), George.Miller (D., Calif.). Walt Norblad (R., Ore.), and Bill Bates '*'.., Mass.) around the world. The . .- force escort officer spent an- •iii'r $10,300 of the taxpayers' money on the Congressmen for travel expenses. Fisher also took a private $300 side trip in Indonesia. These basic costs do not include the foreign currency that is ladled out to junketing Congressmen for spending money. All they nc-ed Is a requisition signed by a committee chairman. This is good for free spcncfing money at our embassies in 42 countries. The foreign currency is taken from special account No. 19 FT 5(51. which is set aside for the exclusive use of traveling Congressmen. They spend the money by the bushel basket for hotels, meals, entertainment, rdpht clubs, souvenirs, and w h a t c v e r sti:;.-•; their fancy.

In ir.Kny case:, these trips v.-orc g"od Investments, since Ihe Congressmen worked hard studying foreign problems and spreading good will. Most of them filmply had a lavish overseas holiday, however, at the taxpayers' expense. It cost 541,670 for a special plane to fly Congressmen Clem Zablocki (D., Wise.), John Jarman (D., Okla.). Bob Byrd (D., W. Va.), Ross Adair (R., Ind.), and Marguerite Church (R., 111.), round the world. Another special plane to Europe cost $21,038 for Congressmen W. R. Poage (D.. Tex.), Hale Boggs (D., La.), Harold Coolcy (D., N. C.), Henry Tallc (R., Iowa), and Antoni Sadlak (R., Conn.). Sadl.-ik took his son along, and Sen. Willis Robertson (D., Va.) arranged for his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Willis Robertson, Jr., to make the trip. This trip was to vis-it the In- I.er-Ptirllamentary Union, attendance nt which is required by law. It can be classified as one of the more worth-while junkets. Congressman Poago and his wife organized another junket to South America which cost the taxpayers $18.915 for transportation. Included in the party was Congressman Paul Jones (D., Mo.l, and his wife. Still another South American junket for Congressman Porter Hardy (0., VaJ, Jack Brooks (D., Tex.), George Meader (R.. Mich.), and Victor Knox. (R., Mich.), cost $20.998. CONGRESSMEN JOHN Rooney (D., N. Y.) and John Fogarty (D., R. I.), accompanied by their wives, led a junket to Europe. Transportation cost: $13,372. Several Congressmen, traveling alone or with wives, took scheduled military transportation overseas, then demanded special transportation after they got there. Here are the bills for extra transportation in several typical cases: Rep. and Mrs. Errett Scrivnor (R., Kans.i, Europe and North Africa, $2,201; Rep. and Mrs. L. Mendel Rivers (D., S. C.) and their daughter, Peggy, Europe, $1,123; Rep. and Mrs. Bill Hess (R., Ohio), Europe, 54,367; Rep. and Mrs. Dan Flood (D., Pa.), Europe, $4,050; Rep. James Patterson (R., Conn.), Far East, $2,100; Rep. OHn Tcague (D., Tex.), Europe, $2,500; Rep. and Mrs. Charles Nelson (R., Me.), Europe, $1,850; Rep. and Mrs. Charles Halleck (R., Ind.).
