He was in Corpus Christi for several private meetings with supporters, including Latins there who worked for his reelection. V Thirty-five students at San Isidro demonstrated against the resignations of a principal and his assistant. It was charged that the two educators were forced to resign because they supported Republican candidates, including Tower. Several public figures have spoken recently on the Texas A&M campus Maury Maverick, Jr., Cong-elect Bob Eckhardt, Cong-elect George Bush, and Sen. Yarborough. Maverick spoke on “Dissent to Constituted Authority.” V Students at Prairie View A&M who have complained this fall of student life and the “lack of teaching and leadership” on the campus called off a planned ten-day boycott of the student union and the campus exchange. One student leader said that there is “no longer any need” for the boycott since Dr. A. I. Thomas was appointed to replace Dr. E. B. Evans as acting president during the illness of Dr. Jesse M. Drew. 26 The Texas Observer Final Totals g o ow A suit challenging the legality of Amendment No. 7’s wording on the Nov. 8 ballot has been filed, temporarily at least blocking canvass of the votes. That’s the amendment which called for abolishing the poll tax, approved by 551,324 to 426,430. The legal action was brought by Roy Evans, Texas AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer, and Allen Matthews, president of the Austin Central Labor Council. They argue that the amendment, as shown on the ballot, did not say anything about adding a provision for annual voter registration to the constitution, which is the effect of No. 7’s approval. State officials were expected to file an answer this week with the court. V Meanwhile, the votes on the other 15 proposed amendments have been can1.
