Manufacturers Back 4 Solons’ Pay Increase AUSTIN Texas Manufacturers’ Assn. renews its support of the annual salary amendment for legislators to be voted on in November in the January issue of its magazine, “Texas Industry.” Reciting the expansion of interim study groups on legislative problems, James L. Whitcomb, T.M.A.’s 1959 president, writes, “Should the annual salary amendment be enacted, there would be a willingness on the part of the spend more time and study on the actual work of these commissions. This could be a valuable asset in the legislative process.” The legislators’ pay raise, a hotly fought issue in 1958 when the proposed annual salary was $7,500, was defeated with business interests generally opposed. Voters next November will be asked whether they regard $4,800 a year as a reasonable sum. Whitcomb says that T.M.A. “exerted its efforts principally” in the state tax field against the change in the allocation formula of the corporation franchise tax \(which Gov. Price Daniel prothe change, Whitcomb said. “Out of the $185,000,000 in new and additional taxes,” Whitcomb also stated, “approximately $130,-000,000 of it was raised through selective sales taxes on either new items or increases on old items.” Whitcomb, reporting for “the officials of the Texas Manufacturers’ Assn.,” endorsed the new “safe driving insurance plan” of the Insurance Board. “Although there may be some technical defects in the plan, these can be corrected at at later date. The basic purpose is good,” he said. The T.M.A. report approvingly reviewed the refusal of the legislature to alter state labor laws in ways of benefit to the unions. In reviewing the situation, the report says “the business representatives sponsored” legislation to change the unemployment compensation laws \(in ways supported by the legislature did not pass the bill. Union Teachers’ Troubles and how can we get the word to the voters about those in office who need replacing?” He left the question unanswered. HOUSTON, SAN ANTONIO Teachers prominent in the San Antonio and Houston teachers’ unions continue to be plagued with troubles with their school boards. Charles Strange, vice-president of the Houston Teachers’ Federation, was fired after two altercations with a student who was a discipline problem. He has maintained his dismissal was actually punishment for his union work. Emilio Garza, a history teacher at Edgewood high school in San Antonio and the temporary president of the new Edgewood teachers’ union, was suspended suddenly last week on a charge of leaving the school without permission and gross disrespect of the school board. He said he left the school grounds during his free period, which is “fairly common” among Edgewood teachers. The San Antonio labor paper charged that CONROE Tom Reavley, the former Secretary of State, was candid enough, in his speech to the chamber of commerce here, on why he is not a candidate for Attorney General this year. “I have expected to be a candidate this year. This was prevented when the incumbent decided to run for re-election,” he said. Still, he said, he had been campaigning for six months, and he had some things to say about Texas government and politics. “A new day” is coming to Texas, he saidnot necessarily a shift “from conservatism to liberalism, nor from business control to labor control,” but a shift to a time “characterized by the willingness to work, the determination to improve, and a greater faith in our future.” “Combining the ability-to-pay and benefit-received factors, will we plan to pay the bill for the Texas we can have?” he asked emphasizing the needs for a water program and better schools and colleges. He said candidates must be supported who are neither probusiness nor pro-labor as much as “pro-Texas, first, last, and always.” The ex-state official disputed the idea that anti-business sentiment in the Capitol is keeping new industry out of Texas. Texans are overwhelmingly dedicated to private enterprise, he said, but: “The only threat to business on the Austin scene is the backlash of its own excesses. Business has been in the saddle, and if Texas has been stifled by a poor caliber of government, it is not the liberals and the unions we have to blame.” “Nowadays,” he said, “if a legislator is to keep his sacred conservative label, he must never stray from the business lobby.” Reavley welcomed those “who dare to think for themselves.” He said the defeat of the bill to set interest limits on small loans was accomplished by “a business lobby . . . while the needs of the people are being ignored. If this is what some people mean by a favorable business climate in Austinand it isthen I long for our deliverance. Furthermore, I am quite confident this is no more what is good for Texas business, in the long run, than it is what you and I want.” Closing, Reavley discussed the problems of candidates communicating with voters. One question he asked: “How can we get truly altruistic men to run for office, THE TEXAS OBSERVER Page 7 January 29, 1960 LEGALS CITATION BY PUBLICATION THE STATE OF TEXAS To Thomas Melvin Ricketson, Defendant, in the hereinafter styled and numbered cause: You are hereby commanded to appear before the 126th District Court of Travis County, Texas, to be held at the courthouse of said county in the City of Austin, Travis County, Texas, at or before 10 o’clock A.M. of the first Monday after the expiration of 42 days from the date of issuance hereof; that is to say, at or before, 10 o’clock A.M. of Monday the 8th day of February, 1960, and answer the petition of plaintiff in Cause Number 115,277, in which Ruby Green Ricketson is Plaintiff and Thomas Melvin Ricketson is defendant, filed in said Court on the 31 day of August, 1959, and the nature of which said suit is as follows: Being an action and prayer for judgment in favor of Plaintiff and against Defendant for decree of divorce dissolving the bonds of matrimony heretofore and now existing between said parties; Plaintiff alleges cruel treatment on the part of Defendant towards her of such nature as to render their further living together as husband and wife altogether insupportable; Plaintiff further. alleges that no children were born of said union and that no necessity exists for the partitioning of any community property; Plaintiff further prays for costs of suit and for general relief; All of which more fully appears from Plaintiff’s Original Petition on file in this office and to which reference is here made for all intents and purposes; If this citation is not served within 90 days after date of its issuance, it shall be returned unserved.
