The coronation was cancelled as result of disciplinary action involving, among others, the girl the team had chosen for sweet- A dispute over the problem was brought into the open Thursday night at a public meeting attend- ed by some 300 persons. After the meeting, the Winters Board ol Education agreed to reach a de- cision by Nov. 5 on school poli- cies and operation, presumably including the disciplinary situa- tion. The dispute grew out of an ar- gument over use of school buses to take students to out-of-town games.

M.CM. 4 Connolly Equal To Texas Needs In Texas' system of government, the Governor's office is what the man who occupies it makes of it. The state constitution does not endow him with decisive powers. His strength comes almost solely from the quality of leadership he brings to the task. Because this is so, and because of the extraordi- narily high abilities of the man, The Reporter-News recommends John Connally to the voters in the Nov. 6 election. Connally is offering Texas a specific, logical and positive program of good government and state development. He is neither promising the moon, nor standing on negatives. He is for industrial development and has a plan to achieve it. He would send industrial development teams of outstanding citizens to various parts of the nation to sell the merits of Texas. He would en- courage a statewide business development corpora- tion based on private capital to help finance new industries. He proposes a Bureau of Commerce to work in this field. Connally wants to bring more tourists to Texas, and would promote this, too, through the Bureau of Commerce, staffed with professionals in that field and supported by an adequate state appropriation. He would upgrade Texas education at the public school, college and graduate level. Industry follows brainpower and brainpower follows industry, he says, and Texas needs to attract more professors of preeminence to its schools and provide them with adequate research facilities. In every other area of state affairs, he has a plan to support his objectives. Connally's career is one of uninterrupted suc- cess and proven ability. He is experienced in law, in business, ranching, politics and government. His service as Secretary of the Navy is not a hindrance, but an asset available nowhere else. Here he directed a multi-billion dollar military es- tablishment and not the least of the benefits accru- ing from this is the national prestige that gives him access to every educational and industrial organi- zation in the nation. John Connally is not a man of either extreme, but a man of goodwill and good sense who has shown he can work effectively with groups of vary- ing viewpoints. This is indispensable to effective leadership in the state's highest office. Perhaps the most important of many reasons why Connally is best qualified for the governor's office is that he alone of the choices before the voters could work constructively and effectively with the Democratic legislature which is assured, to put to- gether a worthwhile program for Texas. If the gov- ernor and legislature cannot find an environment in which to work, the result is deadlock and stale- mate. In these crucial times, Texas is in the fortunate position of having great challenges and a man to meet them: John Connally. J.S.

"The activity at these sites ap- parently is directed at achieving a full operational capability as soon as the statement said. This new surveillance report was issued a few hours after a State Department spokesman publicly underscored President Kennedy's Monday night state- ment that: "Should these offensive military preparations continue, thus in- creasing the threat to the hemis- phere, further action will be justi- fied. There was tight official silence on what "further action" might be taken but tension mounted again after a brief respite that came after two U.S. destroyer halted and searched without inci- dent a Soviet supply ship bound for Cuba, At the United Nations, Acting Secretary General U Thant opened a round of private talks with U.S. and Soviet envoys in an effort to keep the Cuban crisis rom exploding into war. There was no immediate word on how the talks, held separately, were able 'Ctivlv w ins engaged in at the int In that speech the President an- nounced the United States wag calling in the United Nations for the prompt dismantling and with- drawal of all offensive weapons in Cuba. He said the purpose of the Cuban bases "can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the West- ern Hemisphere." Friday's White House statement said, "There is no evidence to date indicating that there is any in- tention to dismantle or discontin- ue work on these missile sites." "On the it said, "the Soviets are rapidly continuing their construction of missile sup- port and launch facilities and se- rious attempts are under way to camouflage their efforts." Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said early this week it is "fan- to assume that certain of the missile systems are opera- tional." He said he referred par- ticularly to the medium- ballistic missiles. McNamara said then that work on intermediate-range missile sites was in relatively ear- ly stages.

It also was announced that Ken- nedy will meet Saturday with the Civil Defense Committee of the Governors Conference.
