vM* V, IfU Democratic Nominees In Texas Endorsed By Republicans In Effort To Help Eisenhower · ftah Antonio, Texas - M") - Re-* publlcani seeking to cinch Texas' vote for Elsenhower hurdled ancient party lines and snuffed out th* hottest Internal feud in state GOP history. Their convention here yesterday named a full ticket of already nominated Democrats as Republican candidate! for state offices, an action unprecedented In Texas politics. It healed t threatened split by * aerld of concilatory movei and considerable back-slapping--all in . an effort to present a solid front for Elienhower. Nominated ai Democrat-Republican! were Gov. Allan Shivers lor governor; Atty. Gen. Price Daniel for U. S. lenator; former , Rep. Martin Dies for congressman- at-large. Along with them went the full ilate named by the Dem" ocrati in July for other state offices. Their names, under a new Texas law, will go on the November election ballot both as Republi- cani and Democrats unless the individual candidates withdraw. To meet that contingency, the convention passed a' resolution ' empowering' its State Executive Committee to fill any vacancy that may occur. It already had that power and hai taken such action many time* in the past. N* ttlMti Comment At Austin, Gov. Shivers declined comment on .the GOP action and Diniel uld he was "glad the Republicans admit the Democrats hiv* choeen the best cuididtei.' 1 . Whether they would consent to their names being on the GOP ballot remained unanswered. Republican leaders wore c'ufi- . dent that none of the cesign?ted Democrats would withdraw. They praised esnecially Daniel and Shivers and passed a resolution tomrtumding them for saying the-. " cou-'-t not s"pj:ori rint cratic Presidential Nominee Adlai Slev- en'iri. The two Texas Democratic leai- - ers have said they would not support Stevenson because of his approval of President Truman's action in vetoing a bill that would give the state complete control of the tidelands. The convention was a total vie- Boyle's Column 91 HAL BOfLI New York-(ff)-Ev«r pine to live in the days of old, when knights were bold, and the telephone was not invented? Those timei seemi glamorous and adventurous, as portrayed by Hollywood In such film eplci as "Ivanhoei" based on Sir Walter Soott's famous tale. But a 20th century man. suddenly removed to the heyday of this 12th century, metal-plated Hopalbng Caslldy, would find the going a little rough for his tastes. The modern girl would miss a few comforts, too. And as lor Emily Post? . . . Shudder . . . shudder . .. shudder. There were no such niceties ae present day forks and spoons. You hacked off slabs of meat with crude knives and ate by hand. Utensils were rarely washed. . A husband coming home from the grocery store today is no such beast of burden as a knight faring forth to battle. His combat gear weighed 120 pounds, eight times the weight of the plastic body armor a Marine now wears in Korea. And buying a horse and suit of armor then Wat more expensive thin it is now to purchase a Rolls Royce and a tailored sport Jacket. A coat-of-mall--made by hand of tiny mesh rings--took one man four to five months to complete. And you only got one fitting. It was hard 16 be a Horatio Alger hero. The best way for a poor lad to escape lifelong economic bondage was to b«come a priest or a knight. .·· To become a knight a boy had to be placed In the household of a nobleman 8s a page at the age of 12. At 16. if he made the grade, he became a iulre, or shield-bearer to a knight. And the final honor of knighthood--at th* age of 21 or later^-could be conferred only by another knight, a priest, or by royal edict. It was no lob for a juvenile delinquent. A knight found guilty of dishonorable conduct received no second chance. He sat on a railed platform, while six priests on each side intoned the "vigil of the dead." After each psalhi a herald stripped away a piece of armor. Then a bucket of filthy water was poured over the ex- knight's head, and he wai pub llcly executed. There was no parole system for ordinary criminals either. A common form of punishment was "thi judgement of God"--the pouring of molten metal Into the miscreant's ear. You could get this for Healing t handkerchief. - You think'taxta tre tough today? In those days the tax collector lueued you not on the basts of what you said you were worth, but what your neighbor! laid. Aa they wen all In the tame boat, however, some of the people wen real neighborly on this point. Highwiys arc dangerous enough now. But then they were K) out- law-lhfeitei! that even a lord dare not rid* from his castle at night except with an armed bodyguard. And while the meats were a great protection against enemies they also bred a.lot of typhoid. To get your rights you couldn't call a cop. You had to iight for them under priests and arms. But ladies, persons under "1 weren't allowed to fight. They hired professional knights, known as "puggies." To be a knight wasn't easy. You were supposed to have a knowledge, of music, dancing, penmanship, drawing, horsemanship, tbe use of all standard weapons, and a mastery of the art of carving a tide of beet at a banquet. The last requirement explains the current shortage of knights in rationed Britain. Medieval Indies often nude vows never to undress Or bathe | until the lord of the manor returned from » journey. One wife kept this pledge for sevan years while her knight was off on a crusade. You can see now why knighthood died out. How would you like to come home to a dame like that?
