Randolph and Byron Skelton, will consider Sept. 16 not only Paul Butler’s proposed rule to pledge delegates to support nominees, but whether to try to instruct Butler to designate Sam Rayburn chairman of the convention in 1960. Rayburn’s stock in this prospect may have declined because of the LandrumGriffin defeat he suffered in the House and his own delegation. 7 The oilworkers’ union has signed up 2,600 of the 3,100 workers at the Humble refinery in Baytown. About 1200 of them showed up at the organizational meeting of the new union; Fortune Magazine had three photographers there to record the first major breach of Standard of New Jersey by international unionism. 7 Houston Press said it was “disgusting” that the teachers’ lobby bought box lunches for the legislature one day. “Some day the people of Texas are going to revolt at what goes on in Austin,” the paper said. / Sen. Johnson will visit San Augustine Aug. 29 for a twodays-late birthday celebration and has scheduled a major address in Galveston Sept. 21. / Neil McNeil, Scripps-Howard writer, said Sen. Yarborough’s friends’ “daydreams” of Yarborough as a vice-presidential candidate in 1960 “aren’t necessarily just spun out of air,” that Yarborough has been getting the look-over by Democratic leaders on both coasts. Texas History Interest Sought DALLAS With more than 200 county historical survey committees already designated by county judges, the Texas State Historical Survey Committee, created legislatively in 1953 and given permanent status in 1957, has announced a program to increase public interest in Texas history. The committee’s original work was preserving old Texas homes, courthouses, colleges, forts, and historic structures. Now the committee, through its president, Col. Charles R. Tips of Dallas, urges local committees to work with local officials and the Highway Department in preserving, and adding new, historical markers; to encourage the writing of county histories and the safekeeping of valuable county records; to establish local museums or work with some nearby regional museum; to preserve old landmarks or, at least, have them carefully photographed and sent to the State Archives; and to sponsor observations of Texas holidays.

Opposing particularly a special session early next year, the Caller foresaw “a horrifying prospect” of “a demagogic struggle” just before the May elections. / Bobby Morrow, the phenomeV nal U. S. track star, graduated from Abilene Christian College and took a job as assistant vice president for public relations at the Bank of Commerce in Abilene. Morrow, a conservative young man with obvious possibilities for politics, will have as his duties “contacts with customers and with the press, radio, and television plus representing the bank at civic functions.” /George Carmack, Houston Post editor, made “a pledge for 1961!”, to wit: “to help the Texas state parks,” which got “the worst deal” in the legislature. “What permanent damage will unavoidably be done as a result of this short-sightedness!” he wrote. IDick West, Dallas News com mentator, urged his radio listeners to attend a Freedom in Action meeting in Dallas to hear Bob Stripling, former investigator for the House Un-American Activities committee. Stripling told FIA that the Krushchev visit to the U. S. was comparable to a visit from Hitler. “In the 1930’s what would the U. S. public have thought if Hitler had been invited to the White House?” he asked. “I don’t see any difference between Hitler and Krushchev.” 7 Will Clayton of Houston, Arch Underwood of Lubbock, J. R. Parten of Houston, Walter Hall of Dickinson, J. Frank Dobie of Austin, Jim Sewell of Corsicana, and Bob Slagle of Sherman have been listed as sponsors of the Truman dinner in Dallas Oct. 17. These people, along with Byron Skelton, Mrs. R. D. Randolph, and J.

They argue that the people of 42 other states trusted their legislators, and it has turned out all right for them. Defeat of the amendment, they say, would give the sharks aid and Political Intelligence comfort by discouraging the 20 to 36 percent boys. This work is being done quietly, preparatory to the big, expensive campaign next fall. 7 House chief clerk Dorothy Hallman’s total of lobbyist spending \(not quite complete, but the legislature: $121,909.

Bell of Beaumont, for Gulf States Util/ Stuart Long, in his Austin Re port, said Sens. Johnson and Yarborough are outside the speculation about the serious political races in 1960. “Chances are,” he said, however, “that there will be a conservative candidate wasting his and Dan Moody’s time this spring running against Johnson.” / All proceeds from “Dollars for Democrats” this year Sept. 25 through Oct. 4will be sent to the national party, J. Ed Connally, state chairman, said. He named John Wildenthal, Jr., Cotulla, to head the drive, Wildenthal being a state Democratic commmittee member and assistant attorney general. Connally’s letter about the drive contains the sentence, “Although Texas Democrats have disagreed with some of the remarks made by our national Democratic officials, we are cooperating to help meet the state’s quota to the Party.” He designated all county chairmen as chairmen of their local money-drives. 7 Sen.

THOMSON, Owner \(Lon Tinkle, book critic of the News, recently did a piece on J. Frank Dobie which, informally, conveyed a part of the essense of this most lusty and honest Texas man. We excerpt a few paragraphs for our readers’ Dobie has always had a passion to see things clearly and to.report them right. He turned this clearsightedness, which is really just intensified awareness, on his homeland. Nobody has taught Southwesterners more about their landscapes and their traditions, their history and the animals they live with. Dobie’s artistic interpretation of the Southwest has never been merely local. Like all real artists, Dobie is a man of highly amplified consciousness. He is a “natural” man, but a civilized man too. When you talk with him, what strikes you most is his effortless power of concentration. He is not merely visible in a conversation but fully alert and present. His well-stocked mind constantly sees relationships. “I have learned more about grasses,” he says, ‘from Wordsworth than from all the Department of Agriculture’s manuals put together.” For Dobie, truth is larger than mere fact. But with equal scruple, he guards against illusion, that occupational disease of the artist mind. A man who has fought to preserve the Southwestern heritage, he is in no sense a conservative. His motto could be “Preserve and Discover,” with emphasis on the latter. He is a true liberal. “I have oAen tried,” he says, “to find a good definition of a liberal. I think a liberal is simply a man willing to see the truth and unwilling to reject what is real.” Hence, Dobie’s passion for clearsightedness. Hence, his fundamental incorruptibility. **** “I was lonesome for land,” he told us, as his arm swept in a wide arc indicating the hills and creek of his country place, “and I bought this place about a year ago. When I got sick, I thought for awhile that maybe I was through, so I sold my country place at Cherry Springs. But I got lone Facts Behind the Myth Sirs: Thanks for your superb coverage of the legislature. I look forward to Editor Goodwyn’s series on the economic of power in Texas. We Texans are steeped in folklore concerning this subject. So many otherwise well-informed people seem to me to have cultivated this blind spot to be so amazingly ignorant of the history and the facts behind the myth of “free enterprise” as it is practiced in Texas. While I have always thought myself a liberal, the education I have been receiving through your news coverage, columns, and editorials leaves me somewhat in doubt. But, even though being a liberal in Texas is becoming more complicated and difficult, it is just as surely becoming more important, even urgent. I am enclosing a check for $4. I
