L.Peo- s Baird Woman Scores Rules Victory Reporter-News Austin Bureau AUSTIN Mrs. James (Marguerite) Sny'rtcr of Baird won a big victory Saturday when the State Democratic Executive Committee's rules subcommittee adopted a set of procedures for this year's par- ty conventions which her drafting committee had pro- posed. Mrs. Snyder is the SDKC member from the 24th District and is vice chairman of the rules subcommittee. She read the resolution proposing the "regulations" which are being aelopted under rational Demo- cratic party regulations to govern the selection of dele- gates from Texas to the par- ly's national conference to be held in December. THERK IYKRK some revi- sions and compromises but the essence of Mrs. Snydcr's report resisted any major amendment. Harris County Democratic Chairman Dill Williams of- fered several amendments de- signed to provide proportional representation along the lines provided in the 1972 presiden- Flnal ISA tial precinct conventions. Hut none of them got more than three or four votes from the J4 members of the committee. The result is that the slate committee meeting here next Saturday will .get a recom- mendation that precinct con- vention majorities can elect the entire delegation to the county conventions. At the 1972 precinct conventions any group making up as-much as ?0 per cent, of precinct convention was enlililed to elect its proportion's, share of the delegates lo trie-county convention. Mrs. Snyder voted with the majority on all issues before the committee -Saturday. The majority, led by conimittcman John Bmnson of Houston, agreed to -a provision to which 20 per cent at a precinct con- vention could nominate dele- gates to the county conven- tion. Bill, unlike 1972, the mi- nority could not elect its share of the delegates. Tilt-: REGULATIONS adopt: ed by the.

TUNIS, Tunisia (API Li- -bya and Tunisia, neighboring Arab states, announced Satur- day they will unite into one country with one president, the Tunisian Foreign Min- islry said. President Habib Kourguiba of Tunisia said later the new slate, which will have a single constitution, army, flag, exe- cutive branch and legislature, "will help us face and meet ouv new enemies, particularly Israel." The two countries have hail divergent policies on Israel, with Tunisia being Ihe move conciliatory toward the Jewish nation. The new nation will be called the Arab Islamic Re- public and Bourguiuii said he also hoped Algeria, Mamelan- ia and "possibly" Morocco would join in the newly signed union. Bourguiba and (he Libyan leader, Col. Moammar Khada- ty, signed the union agree- ment after two days of talks on the island of Jcrba, 350 miles south of Tunis, Tunisian Foreign Minister Mohammed Masmoudi said in a statement.- The union is to lie ratified by the'two countries in'a re- ferendum. It was Khadafy's second union agreemenl in Hi years and cast new doubt on liie al- .ready cloudy future of his Au- -.gust 1972" accord to merge his wealthy oil nation with Egypt, which neighbors Libya on the other side. The agreement struck a blow at American influence in Africa and the Arab world and was expected to be greeted with enthusiasm by many of Tunisia's university students who have denounced'Bourgui- IM as excessivly pro-Western .and American Influenced. Hundreds of young Tunis- ians gathered in downtown streeis to hail Ihe agreement. They marched to the Tuni headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization while chanting: "Palestine, one sin- gle Arab people." A referendum was sel for March 20 lo obtain approval of -the union accord from the more than six million people of Ihe two North African coun- I ries. The dale of the referen- .'d'.ini originally had been set for next Friday, but Bourgui- ba said Saturday night the vote was postponed "for rea- sons of procedure." The merger announcement 'did not indicate which leader would run the new combined nation, and gave no deadline for completion of the union. liotti Khadafy and Bourgui- ba are autocrats and national independence symbols in their own lands, and their foreign U.
