V A photographic reproduction of an article in Farm and Ranch sent out by F. G. Swanson of \(Tyler, Texas, to Texas newspapers includes these observations: “Uncle Sam is Uncle Sucker” . . . “Kennedy’s New Frontier is Socialism. Socialism is Communism without the firing squad. Before the ‘New Frontier,’ first introduced as the ‘New Deal,’ gov-‘ ernment prevented one man from robbing another. Now government robs one man for the benefit of another . . . “With the Kennedy dynasty ruling our lives .. . the main issue is religion: God Save America.” Attached to the article was a “non-negotiable Las Vegas” $1,000 bill. One Good Deal AUSTIN Midwestern University is the school at Wichita Falls that was accepted by the state two years ago as a gift, to be admitted to the system next September, free of indebtedness. This week Bill Thacker, an attorney for , Midwestern, and J. P. Coleman, a member of the board of regents, appeared before the committee and said, in effect, “We’re not quite free of indebtednessas a matter of fact, we still owe nearly $900,000 on previous bondsbut we know a way to straighten all that out, with your help. Now watch the shells.” First move is to “refund” the bond indebtedness now outstanding. This will make the school “free of debt” and ready to turn over to the state. To do that, said Thacker and Coleman, we’ll float a new bond issue for $1,200,000 on the existing junior college district. “Wait,” cried Sen. Abraham Kazen, “How can you issue bonds on a junior college district that will cease to exist as soon as you turn the school over to the tate?” It’s easy, said Thacker and Coleman. The junior college may no longer exist, but the junior college district will exist as long as it is in debt. “And how do you intend to pay off the new bond issue?” asked Sen. Charles Herring. It’s easy, said Thacker and Coleman. We’ll pay it off out of ad valorem taxes and out of revenue from the school’s dormitories. “But those dormitories will belong to the state. You’ve given them to the state,” said Herring. “You mean you intend to pay off the bond issue partly out of funds that are rightfully the state’s?” Thacker and Coleman smiled. Sen. William Moore, Bryan: “I was on this committee two years ago when the offer to give Midwestern to us was made. I thought the school was supposed to be free of indebtedness. I thought we were getting a big gift.” Sen. Kazen: “I’m willing to admit we made a mistake.” As the atmosphere around the committee table became increasingly hotter, Sen. George Moffett of Chillicothe moved the bill into a subcommittee for two weeks. ly five days to cool off enough to Which left the committee exactgive an impartial hearing to Sen.

He said prominent Latin American had been offered a “high post” in the administration but could not Political Intelligence accept it. According to the Hearst papers, Kennedy had under consideration “a well-known Texan for an ambassadorial post to an unnamed country.” This could have been Sen.

Allen and Paul Scott, said Blak ley was one of five on the eight man Senate anti-trust investigat ing committee who oppose pub lication of a report that is highly critical of lax state regulation of insurance companies. “Sen. Thom as Dodd and Blakley,” the col umn said, “are new members of the committee. Dodd’s state, Con necticut, is known as the ‘insur ance capital of the U.S.’ Blakley, a wealthy oilman, has been an official of insurance companies.” V Texas Businessmen, weekly advisory, wrote this week: “Insurrection showed its face in the House. Guerrilla fighting against new Speaker Turman stems out of internal personal feelings; personality conflicts, al leged broken promises on com mittee assignments, and a lack of deftness in the victor’s claiming of the spoils of his speakership contest .. .
