H. G. Keaton Grady Acuff TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Notice is hereby given that K. Busby Before Labor School Future Environment For Humble’s Workers \(Related AUSTIN What effect will the 1959 tax bill have on politics? “The outcome likely means liberals will take the House.” Is a general sales tax inevitable? “The astute pro view is that the 57th legislature may come here more firmly cornmitted against sales taxes than the 56th.” Furthermore, the liberals may elect a Governor soon “unless a truly modern conservative comes to the fore.” Unorthodox views for a business newsletter, but Horace Busby, editor of the Texas Businessman, thinks of himself as a critic advising business from the outside. This week he told labor leaders what he is trying to accomplish and what he thinks they should do with “the greatest peak of power that labor has been able yet to achieve in Texas.” Busby said there are two kinds of businessmen in Texas, the old fashioned conservatives against most everything and the modern conservatives who are not blind to the rise of liberal forces and do not insist on “100 per cent.” Busby, week after week, tries to cast his lot and influence with the moderns while staunchly defending such causes as the general sales tax and the Senate candidacy of William A. Blakley, whose election he predicted. His newsletter has been appearing since 1957. He is closemouthed about his circulation, but no one in Austin politics would deny that he has an influence among the people who are engaged in “opinion formation.” Before he started his business letter, Busby was thought of as the once-liberal editor of The Daily Texan who had turned speechwriter for Lyndon Johnson, Price Daniel, and Allan Shivers. He allows that he has written “thousands of speeches,” but he prefers to regard those years as a time when he was let “just sit around and think” by the political figures he worked for. He joined Johnson in 1948; after a turn as administrative officer of the Senate preparedness subcommittee in 1950-’51, he joined Senator Daniel as administrative assistant for a year. Since then he has been back and forth between Austin and Washington. “I feel closer to Johnson than any of the others,” he said meaning Daniel and Shivers. This week Busby turned up at a session of the AFL-CIO summer institute to tell the 50 labor leader-students what’s going on in Texas business and what he thinks should be going on in Texas labor. State AFL-CIO President Jerry Holleman, introducing him, voiced some skepticism about his newsletter. “People differ about to what extent he is an expert, or if he is,” Holleman said, but he “carries considerable weight in the state of Texas,” and his newsletter is read in labor’s offices “to see what the propagandists for the other side say, almost.” “We feel,” Holleman concluded, “that he predicts more for us than we expect to be.” Busby, responding, said “Our role was undertaken entirely at our own initiative, to the interest and some consternation in the business community.” One result now occurring is more interest in state government in the general business community, he said. He told the group he is “a third-party observercommentator, whatever it might bemaking constructive observations from a third-party position.” ‘A Different Approach’ Texas businessmen divide into two groups with “entirely different perspectives and attitudes,” he said. First are “the traditionalists,” native Texans who have lived here their whole lives and whose horizons “are not beyond the local community very much and certainly not beyond the state.” They feel that “all will work out” in the state government; they are hostile toward states like Michigan, and they have a sentiment for “the past.” But Texas has won a place now, Busby said, “on the circuit of the management cycle of the larger management companies. Key positions are occupied by people in Texas on something approaching a transient basis. The highest position is something on beyond Texas,” and promotion depends on performance in Texas. This second group, he said, has a “considerably different” attitude toward labor, “not necessarily more friendly, but far more understanding and less inclined to be favorable to some of the kinds of campaigns that have been conducted by conservatives in the past.” Theirs is not “a conservatism against the Supreme Court and against Big Labor” but rather a concern “with specifics in state government.” “The business leadership against whom the labor-liberal has been running for ten yearsthe business types, oil entrepreneurs, insurance entrepreneurs, the family promoterseems to be passing into eclipse … and into the void that he has already created by what I call lack of reality … are moving trained management men … with a different approach.” Busby said these new men are interested less in a man’s back LEGALS NOTICE OF INTENTION TO INCORPORATE Notice is hereby given that P. B. Thomson doing business as Depot Stores, 1430 W. Commerce St., 201 S. Alamo St., 3618 Broadway, and Thomson’s Stores, 3106 Fredericksburg Road, all in San Antonio, Texas, and as Thomson’s Stores, 909 E. Main St., in Fredericksburg, Texas, intends to incorporate under the name of Thomson’s Depot Stores, Inc., on September 1, 1959. P. B. THOMSON, Owner ground than in his “competence.” They want “constructive outside criticism ” “That same interest in labor and the liberal group in outside criticism is not present,” he said. “Labor somewhat is in the same mental state that business was in during the ’30’s and ’40’s, the complete conviction that there is only one view. … Only in the last few months has business turned itself around and said ‘Perhaps we can’t go at this thing on a 100 percent basis.’ ” While Busby said neither labor nor business in Texas is actually monolithic, the image of monoliths damages them. “Eventually you can’t be against everything. Business can’t win its political wars in 1970 by fighting the image of Franklin Roosevelt. You,” he told the labor men, “can’t keep running against Shivers. You can’t keep running withor behind or ahead ofDaniel.” Busby discussed at length legislators’ ideas about business and labor lobbies. He said in effect that many younger conservative legislators criticize business lobbyists because they work mainly with the old-timers and don’t provide hard facts. The sum of his survey about the labor image seemed to be that while labor provides hard factual information, conservatives and labor-oriented members object that the state organization’s broad social interests are not limited to union purposes, while the liberals in the legislature appreciate this broad perspective. ‘Can Labor Hold Power’ Closing, he asked whether labor can hold its power in Texas after 1961. “Every political officeholder in Texas is speaking today with a great consciousness of the labor vote that was not there ten years ago,” and labor is “in a swing position in district after district,” he said. In the current legislature, the labor-liberal group were protected from criticism about the course of events because the responsibility lay with the SenateSpeaker team, he said. But in 1961 the labor-liberal group “stands a very good chance of organizing the House” and then will be responsible for what happens. “In Texas is labor prepared to be responsible for what happens? Can labor survive that responsibility?” he asked. The present tax structure has been squeezed for its last extra sums, “in the next five years, when you have considreably more power, that structure goesit just won’t raise the money. The labor substitute for that is the thing your future depends on in Texas,” he said. R.D. * Sociologist Dr. Bernice Mil burn Moore of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health told an Austin gathering of educators that Texas is no longer afraid of the “common man,” is discarding its provincialism and hostility to eggheads, and is learning the importance of education.
