R. H. Cory; Obie Bristow, and Joe Pool A PRESS DISPUTE IN LONGVIEW LONGVIEW A curious case of press competition has cropped up here. Joe Isenhower, editor of the Longview Star, billed as an independent weekly newspaper, accused Carl Estes, editor and publisher of the daily Longview News-Journal, of using unfair tactics trying to run him out of business. Isenhower, in his weekly, said Estes told him he had Isenhower’s jail record. Isenhower said Estes wrote a swan song edi torial for the weekly, had a final’ cartoon drawn, and paid [senhower $112 to pay for news racks and the Star office sign. But then Isenhower decided to hold on.; he published his own jail record \(18 months in Ohio and his version of the entire episode with Estes. As of this date not a word about the matter has appeared in the Longview d a i 1 y. Isenhower says he got 800 to 1,000 new subscribers. ANIEL WINS INSURANC Incumbents Lose Battle AUSTIN- Governor Price Daniel appears to have won his biggest victory of the session with the insurance commission reorganization legislation nearing final adoption. It was an all-out control fight which found the Governor at grips with current commission appointees, legislator friends of ex-Governor Allan Shivers, and moguls of the insurance industry. MISSION Reps. W. S. Heatly, Heatly and Bristow Said : Keep Osorio and Wentz ; Cory and Pool Said : Off with Their Heads on at the Insurance Commission salaries will be set in the general Passage of the reorganization plan now in conference committee will doubtless mean the departure from the insurance board of John Osorio and Mark Wentz, both of whom opposed’ Daniel on the matter. The reorganization b ill approved by the House, 109-25, differs from the Senate-approved version mainly on the point of whether the board should work full or part-time. The bills are in agreement on the principal questions of replacement of the current three-member board by the Governor and the provision that a single executive commissioner will head the entire department. Five hours of blustery, blistering debate were required to move the measure through the House with Reps. Dick Cory, Victoria, Marshall Bell, San Antonio, and Jo Ed Winfree, Houston, taking the lead in passage. Leading the opposition were Reps. Obie Bristow, Big Spring, Louis Dugas, Orange, and W. S. Heatly, Jr., Paducah. Bristow, who had headed the House State Affairs subcommittee which had amended the bill to provide for a six-man insurance commission and save the jobs of current members, tossed his head back and howled like a wolf to illustrate how the insurance companies are howling over cuts in fire and marine insurance rates. Bristow said that Wentz, a personal friend of his, is an honest man who had refused to bow to insurance company pressures and had saved the people of Texas $15 million in lower rates. He charged that the companies were trying to get rid of Wentz in the reorganization crisis. Bristow declared: “It may be good politics to vote against this amendment of mine, but I don’t need that seat back there, and I’m not afraid of the Governor, the President, or nobody. “I never, never, never will reward integrity with a crown of thorns or crucify honesty on the cross of political ambition.” Winfree, calling for a vote to give the Governor the authority ‘ to clean up the insurance ‘department, said there had been goings which gave off such a vile odor they would by comparison “make a skunk smell like a Rio Grande Valley orange orchard.” It was also pointed out by Winfree that Charles A. McCormick, president of the International Life Insurance Company of Austin /and landlord of the building where the Insurance Commission is located, had opposed the reorganization bill. “I wonder why Mr. McCormick is so interested in keeping these bills bottled up?” said Winfree. RENEW To the Texas Observer 504 W. 24th St., Austin Name: Address: Ci t y : One year, $4; 2, $7.50; 3, $11 Rep. John Lee of Kermit introduced an amendment to direct the commission to find new quarters within three years. “The commission has paid the owners of the building $95,000 a year for a total of $750,000 since they have been there,” Lee pointed out. His amendment was accepted 100.16. Another key amendment vote came on Rep. Ben Ferrell’s proposal to make the commission elective. It lost 89-49. Also deI feated ,was an amendment to set a $25,000 a year maximum to be paid the three commissioners and the executive commissioner. The appropriation act. Rep. Hal Coley, Conroe, new member elected to replace James E. Cox, who resigned in the wake of a bribery scandal, told members that “the public is demanding that something effective be clone to clean up these insurance scandals. If we kiss off this mess, we are going to have to answer to the people for it in the near future,” he warned. “The Governor’s plan may not be the complete answer but it is a step in the right direction.” CLASSIFIED Sam Rayburn’s party members shouldn’t miss the book on him titled “The Speaker’s Agent!” Here for the first time in book form, is an inti mate glimpse of this epoch making legislator in his every day life … with leads to his lastihg leadership.
