Reporter Defends LBJ ,/ Reporter Magazine’s current issue examines possible Democratic presidential nominees, including Sen. Lyndon Johnson. Of Johnson the piece said: “Liberal resistance to Johnson is not only deep and stubborn but in some cases almost hysterical. Its intensity is out of proportion to any offense Johnson may have given. personally to liberal leaders. It springs rather horn a deep distrust of Johnson’s connection with the powerful oil interests of Texas, and from his influence over the Southern elders whose seniority has put them at the top of the committee apparatus in the Senate. The bitter truth is that without such connections, Johnson could not survive in the Senate and be its master, and with them he cannot command the confidence and affection of the Northern liberal wing.” 1 Life Magazine featured John son on its cover, speculated he might run for president though he says he won’t now. Johnson told Jim Mathis of the Houston Post in Washington, “I am not a Political Intelligence candidate for President. I’m not going to reconsider.” San Antonio Express featured Johnson as “Man of the Year, 1958,” along with a cartoon showing Johnson’s shadow on the White House. / State Sen. Doyle Willis of Fort Worth has let it be known he will run for lieutenant governor, should incumbent Ben Ramsey retire. Willis is confident he could win over State Sen. William Fly of Victoria, who may also run if Ramsey does not. Congressional Quarterly says that if Sen. Ralph Yarborough seeks re-election, he will likely be opposed by one or more of these: Rep. Martin Dies, ExSen. William Blakley, Baylor president W. R. White. VA revised edition of Yar borough’s campaign biography is being printed. It is entitled, “Yarborough, Portrait of a People’s Senator,” which could be taken to indicate he has decided to seek re-election. An advertisement in the Washington Evening Star Jan. 12 by “For America,” the right-wing political organization, has among its signers these from Texas: Dr. Ernest E. Anthony, Jr., Carlton Beal, Elwood Fouts, J. Evetts Haley, Clifford B. Jones, Douglas Marshall, Giles E. Miller, Dan Moody, and E. E. Townes. 1 This sign appears on the back window of Atty. Gen.

Archer, chairman of the board of Uncle Johnny Mills in Houston, is vice-president of the southwest region of the National Assn. of Manufacturers. Southern directors from Texas are E. B.

Clements, president, Superior Manufacturing Co., Amarillo. / Though Gov. Daniel’s co sponsorship of the 1953 tidelands act in the U.S. Senate is not mentioned by the San Angelo Standard-Times, the newspaper comments that the Supreme Court may throw out the law “because of its ambiguous language. .. Texans can only hope that the Supreme Court will uphold its argu ment. The claim of Texas ness and persuasiveness of its attorney general …” I Dallas News, quoting the Ob server’s story on who’s run ning for what, concludes “the labor-Negro-liberal coalition has made broad gains” and the con servatives are “short on conserv atives and leadership of the Shiv ers type.” The liberals may win if conservatives don’t unit; it is time for an end to “divisions and lone-wolf tactics,” says the News. Sen. Charles Herring, Austin, told the Kiwanis Club of East Fort Worth criticisms at his committee is a “lot of poppycock. We are being chastised for bucking the system.” He said costs of liquidation are eating up many defunct companies’ assets; one has been being liquidated for 16 years. The Star-Telegram rejoined that it is obvious the committee had some political thoughts as it tore into state officials. / Elizabeth Carpenter, in a col umn in the Houston Post from Washington, says: “Washington corrupts most of us in one way or another. We fall into its impatient patterns, parroting the tongue of the times. But here, you feel, is the uncorrupted man…. `Uncorrupted,’ the journalists say. `Compassionate,’ say his colleagues.” / Ernest Joiner, Ralls Banner, V continues his articles against the 40-hour week. It has, he says, “already produced more sickness, neuroses, crime and mental instability than ever existed at any period in our history. … a direct result of too much time to engage in the various sins and vices, and LEGALS NOTICE TO CREDITORS OF THE ESTATE OF BESSIE SIMMS BRYANT, DECEASED Notice is hereby given that original letters testamentary upon the estate of Bessie Simms Bryant, deceased were granted to Dorothy Creasy Knox Rhone on the 9th day of January, 1958, by the County Court of Travis County, Texas.

Of course we are against nuclear or any other kind of war, but pious pronouncementscertainly we should know by now do not in themselves stop this thing, nor do paper agreements, and they can do harm by placing secondary steps first and clouding the way to come to grips with the only method which will stop warthe strengthening of our leadership in the free world…. Some approach to stronger union between the free peoples of the worldfirst the Atlantic democracieswhich may finally bring in the wake of its strength a fruitful Fast-West agreement for limitation and inspection of weapons is certainly what we ought to face up tobefore time runs out. We must abate our luxurious quibbling about a chimerical relinquishing of sovereignty which “Atlantic Union” causes some people to indulge. When we have to choose between interrelated, free union of the democracies and loss of existence, maybe we’ll talk less and act more. Do we have the moral courage to grip the real, the primary issue, instead of just making proposals which, like the sermon Coolidge reportedare “against sin”?

A concrete example of what we can do to make “ourselves and our allies economically expanding”urge Congress to extend the reciprocal trade agreements without crippling amendments.E.G. No-Good Democrats? To the Editor: I heard over radio that Governor Daniel charges the Democrats of Texas are a bunch of liberal Democrats who are trying to take over the leadership of the Democratic Party in Texas, and it is time for a show down with them. I am sure Mr. Daniel means any Democrat that did not turn traitor and vote a Republican ticket is a liberal-minded, socialistic, nogood kind of a Democrat. This means of course all of us that supported Roosevelt, Truman, and Stevenson. I did exactly this very thing and I am very proud of it. I think the Democratic party has done much more for the people than has the Republican Party. We Democrats believe that our laws should be fair to all alike. We understand the trickledown theory of government. We know it has never worked and never will. This theory favors the few large corporations by giving them large government contracts, etc. When this is done they will be so generous and kind they will employ the people, all of them, and we will have unbounded peace, prosperity and happiness. It will not work for the most selfish and greedy among them, and it will ruin all just as it did in 1929. M. D.
