DALLAS don sit there As the “Democrats of Party for their Texas” convention May 18 The in Austin approaches, liberal Democrats are pointing to the recent Young Democrats’ convention in Dallas as evidence of their strength in the party. If Governor Price Daniel or his aides did launch a drive to take over the state youth group. they were soundly thrashed at Dallas. The outcome was so clear-cut there was never even a test vote. The day before the convention, at a press conference, Daniel carefully assured reporters he had not authorized Jim Lindsey, YD’S WIN GIRDS LIBERALS Bob Bray chairman of the state Democratic executive committee, to use the Governor’s name in his efforts to take over the YD’s. A number of more conservative clubs showed up at the convention, but it would not have been fair to identify them in a simple way as “pro-Lindsey” or “proDaniel.” They were on the whole more gradualist on the segregatiOn question. The clubs in the unshakable majority resolved opposition to state segregation legislation and carefully qualified their “commendation” of Senate Leader Lyndon Johnson a n d House Speaker Sam Rayburn. The commendation resolution stirred the loudest debate of the convention. It was originally introduced to commend Johnson,. Rayburn, and Senator-elect Ralph Yarborough “for their outstanding service and loyalty to the Democratic Party.” Johnson came in for long boos and catcalls when it was pointed out by Ronald J. Manesson, San Antonio, that . the Senate leader might be the 1960 Democratic presidential nominee. Maness on argued for amending the resolution. Others opposed Johnson’s commendation, but only one, H. H. Gray, Austin, also criticized Rayburn. “They’ve betrayed the Democratic Party. Tell them so,” he declared. He said he had sneaked into the Fort Worth convention by a side door to see “dear old Sam and dear old Lyn Issue State Department of Public Welfare, the executive director of the , Good Neighbor Commission, the Commissioner of Education, the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Commissioner of Health, and the Commissioner of Labor Statistics. The ‘Texas Legislative Council study showed that there were more than 40 migrant labor centers operated in Texas in 1955, most of t h em from August through November. The council reported: “The composite camp consists of one or more open-front sheds, probably of sheetiron, frame, or concrete block construction. It is adequately lighted but has no heating, screening, or flooring. It is not equipped with cooking and laundry facilities. It has an adequate supply of water, with a hydrant or tap outside the shed. In about half the cases, it has a coldwater shower and indoor waterflush toilets. It might just as likely have pit privies and no bathing facilities. Garbage is col ‘ lected about twice a week and disposed of by some municipality, and some provision is made for the control of insect vectors and rodents Page 7 April 30, 1957 vote and the committee resolution was adopted the same way. Some twenty other resolutions were adopted by clear voice vote. THE BATTLE was settled the opening day. The credentials committee, headed by Houston Clinton, Jr., Austin attorney, sifted through the applications for membership. There had been reports that Rhodes, state YD vice president, and state Democratic executive committee chairman Jim Lindsey had lined up enough new clubs to challenge the liberalloyalist control, but Clinton said that no serious threat developed. Clinton said that most if not all of the clubs turned down were organized by Rhodes, Lindsey, or workers in the same group but “added that if all had met requirements for membership, liberal-lOyalists would have still’ held lop-sided control. It was estimated that the dissidents ended up with about 75 to 80 delegate votes out of the total 310 and would have had about 40 more votes if the other clubs had been accepted. Rhodes declared that if all the clubs had been chartered, the “labor-dominated liberals” would have had only about hall the delegate voting strength.

He declared that prospective members of “moderate” philosophy who had signed up in San Antonio and Houston were “screened by labor organizations.” “I would not have anyone say I was affiliated with any on e,” Rhodes said. He denied that he had directly or indirectly been encouraged in the membership drive by Governor Daniel. He said that he paid his own expenses in organizing clubs around the state.

Ted Anderson, Corpus Christi attorney, a longtime Shivers supporter and a leader in the county’s Democrats for Eisenhower campaign last year, headed one of the rejected clubs.
