OIL INDUSTRIES LIFE MED Daniel and Law To the Editor: Texas election laws state that members of the state Democratic executive committee will be selected by senatorial district caucuses at the state convention. Gov . Daniel said, “I will insist on respect of the governor’s traditional right to have a friendly Democratic executive committee.” … It seems to me that Daniel is telling the people that it is his intention to win the state convention. by fair means if possible, by any other means if necessary. Should a public official who states he will not abide by the laws of Texas be re-elected? E. P. FREEDMAN 610 N.W. 3rd St., Mineral Wells Poor OP Hank To the Editor: With the big-city press slanting the news of the governor’s race as they do, it’s hard for an innocent reader to find out what Poor 01′ Hank’s doing. JOE T. GRAY 825 Morningside Dr., Ft. Worth Speaking of Corruption To the Editor: Mr. Blakley mounts his moral high horse and belabors the man “who could in anywise be influenced or controlled by designing small groups or individuals … I do not want to see any sort of moral or political corruption saddled upon Texas.” Strange words from the friend, political ally, and appointee of an ex-governor whose administration was so filled with nauseous land and insurance scandals, improper lobbying, purchasing of the services of legislators by designing small AUSTIN With the Sherman Adams furore unabated, more Texas dailies took stands hostile to the Assistant President. Beaumont Enterprise said Adams should resign, as “he has been highly unethical and … acted in the poorest judgment,” while Eisenhower himself has reddened White House faces by taking vicuna cloth from Bernard Goldfine. El Paso Times called for a Justice Department investigation and said Adams ought to quit or Eisenhower ought to fire him. Fort Worth Star-Telegram said Adams’s usefulness is “impaired,” and El Paso HeraldPost said his usefulness “comes into question.” Houston Chronicle somewhat gleefully recalled Eisenhower’s outrage at the $2500 offer to Sen. Case in the gas bill scandal, while in the Adams case, “the President’s civic consciousness was not outraged … Maybe he didn’t ‘need’ the gas bill.” W. B. Ruggles in the Dallas News groups and individuals … as to attract nationwide attention … Can Mr. Blakley tell us … that he cried out along with Sen. Yarborough and a few small newspapers against this corruption?” M. E. MOSS 4413 Cynthia, Bellaire Men Should Rule To the Editor: Sarah Hughes in a letter to the Dallas News criticized .the majority of Dallas lawyers for refusing to endorse her candidacy for associate justice of the Supreme Court. Many lawyers are students of the Bible … and in the Book ample authority is found to deny woman the right to rule men. The first Book of the Bible, Genesis 3-16, says: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and conception; in sorrow thou shall bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” WALTER L. WRAY 725 Cmrcl. Bldg., Dallas A Lone Battle To the Editor: Henry Gonzalez is out there fighting the lonely battle. If he appears quixotic, let’s not blame anyone but ourselves … Here is a man of transparent honesty and forthrightness. Here is a man who abhors any law directed against human dignity … The Observer has supported Gonzalez, many members of the Democrats of Texas will certainly vote for him. But mostly the bastions are silent … Do we realize what, say. 400,000 votes . for Gonzalez means in terms of a statement of this state’s political maturing? … But let’s said Adams’s impropriety was “a political crime.” San Antonio Express said Adams showed “integrity by admitting his error … And since we champion the doctrine of redeemable sin,” Adams should not resign. Alamo Heights News said, “We don’t know what they call it in Washington, but we know what we would call it in Alamo Heights.” In Washington, Texas GOP chairman Thad Hutcheson said the case “is distressing to discuss, but hypocritical not to discuss,” refused to pass judgment because he doesn’t have all the facts, and noted parenthetically that the Martin GOP dinner fuss early this year has “seriously damaged the ability of the GOP to raise money in Texas.” But Hutcheson said the excellence of GOP candidates in Texas will overcome the year’s “dismal” opening votes for Republicansthe Martin dinner, the tidelands issue, and Little Rock. shoot for nothing less than victory. J. D. FRAZEE 1509-A West 35th, Austin To Price To the Editor: So, Price, you want to smash the DOT, the group who are now supporting and always supported the Democratic national ticket; they are splinters. Well, just what are you, big boy? Who do you think you are anyhow? Wasn’t what you pulled at Fort Worth in September ’56 a dilly? …. As an active Ike supporter in ’52 and as a political Wooden Indian in ’56 you must share your part in the Eisenhower flop … JOHN R. COVEY, SR. Rt. 2, Box 277, Snyder If To the Editor: I believe if more liberal independent thinking people could see your paper, your subscriptions would jump considerably. BRADLEY CURREY 8720 Polaris Dr., El Paso Or Vicuna? To the Editor: … From here, it looks like Ike’s hound tooth is covered with chicken feathers. FRANKLIN JONES Marshall “I do not know how I could know anything about Texas political activities, how to vote, and -Rho is responsible for some of the undesirable happenings … we get, without the Observer.”G. G. Shelton, Texarkana. “Enclosed is my check … to the best paper in Texas, The Texas Observer.”T. A. Ray, Rt. 5.
