Decide Election (An editorial) Texas Df-niiKT.ils go lo the polls tomorrow in thc party runoff election. The decisions they will make are of more than usual importance. Because tney are, they should be written by a large vole, not by a minority in a light turnout. It is trile to say, but it is nil the same incredible that everyone with the opporlunily to vote will not inform themselves and exorcise that right. We urge all to east Iheir ballots tomorrow. The lines arc clearly drawn Saturday in each race between a conservative and a liberal. The signifi- cance of this is that the conservatives in each in- slance afford the best assurance thai we can have efficient government with economy. The Reporter-News endorses these conservative candidates in Saturday's election: For governor, .John Connally of Fort Worth. For lieutenant governor, Preston Smith of I.nb- bock. For attorney general. Waggoner Carr of l.tihbock. For coiigressman-at-large, Joe Pool of Dallas. For state representative, Place 2, R4th (Taylor Raleigh Brown of Abilene.
