topics a brucellosis control bill continuation pf the Texas Employment Commission and a mJUJon provision for a new gym nasium at Texas Southern Ail three of these items were ex pected to come out for second readings in the House this said And if the Senate gets through with its consideration of the this special legislative session will hopefully be through by Kuempel Unless something else is brought another he White can put another issue on the sessions added In his weekly news conference White was quoted as saying that he would include ad ditional topics in the special session only if
