Not So Fast! Sir: In several recent issues of the Observer, I have noted with surprise the blithe assumption that for bids. These will be provided promptly. Texas Observer, Ltd., receives commissions on orders thus placed. Futura Press, which prints the Observer, is an Austin printing house which produces weekly newspapers, special printings, stationery, political literature, and a general line of offset lithography. the composition of the next legislature is already determined. While granting that in the past such an outlook might have been justified, I submit that this time it just isn’t so. In Bexar County alone there are five Republican candidates, men of education, energy, and ability who are vigorously contesting Democratic nominees. The Speaker race may be decided, but, as Mr. Dooley said, “On th’ other hand, not so fast!” Yours very truly, Henry E. Catto Jr., 510 Soledad Street, San Antonio 5. SANTA FE, N.M. About 40 liberal Democrats met in Santa Fe recently to plan a statewide liberal group and form a Kennedy for President committee. Dr. Frederick Irions, University of New Mexico government professor, said that organized liberalism in New Mexico died in 1935, when Sen. Bronson Cutting, a liberal Republican, was killed in an air crash. Irions, who says “there is prac tically nothing liberal in this state,” intends to tour eastern New Mexico to “smoke out some more liberals.” He believes the state organization will be a weaker group than the Democrats of Texas Clubs have been. “In a year or two, we may gain in significance and have mutual self-encouragement for individuals to speak out and not feel alone on liberal issues,” Irions told the Observer correspondent here.
