White is Optimistic / John White, Texas commisV of agriculture who announced for re-election last January, told the Observer from the Valley, “I’ve been around the state and I feel much better than I did six months ago. Things look very well.” He said he had been advised Tom Griffin, Bastrop county judge, was to announce “It’s awfully hard for a man who really understands this game to get in a race without guaranteed financial support,” White said, “and it’s hard to get that if you’re not an incumbent.” Rep. Glenn Kothmann, San Antonio, has announced he will not seek reelection and said he has been receiving encouragement to run against White.

John White, Texas commissioner of agriculture, says pasture conditions are “terrific … the best it’s been in ten or twelve years.” Walon Houck of Karnes City, who runs the auction in his area, leases land, and owns three or four hundred head of cattle himself, says “Everything’s much brighter. Everybody needs more cattit, but as my grandfather used to say, green grass can break a cattleman as quick as drouth.” \(With demand for the cattle up, USDA in Austin says cattle and calves are coming out of the Texas winter in the best condition since 1950.
