Representatives in a primary election on Saturday If no can didate receives over 50 per cent of the vote in any contest a run off election between the two top candidates will be held on June 2 As elections go in Texas the coming primary is a tame one That is not to say that there will be no close races Indeed the consensus is that most of them will have to be settled by run offs But this primary lacks some thing of the cheerful opera bouffe quality that is so typical of Texas voting Just as an example the special Senate election a year ago last March had 70 Democrats and one Republican as candidates and that wasnt all There were three Johnsons none related to Lyndon B a brace of Wilsons and sev eral other duplications three wom en one of them a preacher the first Negro senatorial candidate in modern memory n Texas and Bing Crosbys fatherinlaw That wasnt all either but this piece is about this years election It had been hoped early on that this years voting might have some special significance because of the candidacy for the Demo cratic nomination for governor of former Major Gen Edwin A Walker He of course is the self avowed member of the John Birch A friend

the Kennedy administration and Americas nowin policy It would have been interesting to see what political strength he could muster in such meccas of Texas conservatism as Houston and Dal las But his generally ineffective campaign was further weakened by an inept appearance before a Senate Armed Services subcom mittee on military muzzling An April statewide survey by the Texas Poll gave him only 5 per cent of the Democratic vote And a newspaper poll of April 29 gave him only Ite per cent in Dallas The Democratic gubernatorial primary appears to have narrowed to a two just possibly a three horse

no relation to the present senior sen ator from Texas 15 per cent Daniel appears to be the solid man but Connally is spending big money and running a blitz cam paign His opponents allege that he is

the free world into a gen uine Atlantic Partnership of ex panding twoway international trade The choice confronting the na tion in May 1962 Kennedy said in a prepared address is to trade or fade More trade the President in sisted will mean more jobs more national security and a bulwarked foreign policy And the tools to obtain them he said are in a leg islative proposed trade expansion law now before Con gress The arguments were old ones but the phrases were new and so was the setting for new wharf in Americas third greatest port I know of no occasion Ken nedy said where the topic and ihe location of a presidential ad dress have so neatly fit together The President flew down from Washington to make the address accept a key to the city and then fly on to Eglin Air Force Base in western Florida to watch the Air Force display its might Once more in his New Orleans speech Kennedy spelled out what he considers some old and new economic facts of life which he said require Americas moving ahead For what we are moving to ward is an open partnership among all free nations a gradual levelingof trade barriers that will draw the wholenonCommunist world together with the strings of economic selfinterest And that partnership will be specifically and initially expressed in terms of a genuine Atlantic between the Common Market of Europe and the common market of 50 united states he said That partnership will be based on what already comes close to a trillion dollar economy It will pro duce nearly 90 per cent of the free worlds industrial power the lions share of its technical skills two of its greatest markets for raw materials and a very large portion of the capital available for investment and development The United States Kennedy said must be willing to buy as well as sell It must be willing to allow European producers easier access to our market in return for opening the doors in their common tariff wall This is what Kennedy seeks from power to re duce and in some cases wipe out tariffs on a reciprocal basis A few people and industries may be hurt he conceded But safe guards have been built into the projected trade law for them No one he said is going to be sacrificed to the national inter est with a medal and an empty tude regardless grocery bag The trade law he said will im prove US security by building a sufficient surplus of exports over imports to halt the out
