Geaeral-election upheaval potentially looms for Texas state officials, congressional candidates and voters in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling Thursday that three predominately minority congressional districts in Houston and Dallas are unconstitutional. The central question now is whether the November congressional elections must be conducted under a new redistricting plan. If so, results of die Mardi primaries and April runoffs in districts whose lines are changed would be thrown out That would mean new primaries, and possibly runoffs, under a rushed calendar. Boundary changes to the three unconstitutional districts would have a ripple effect extending to neighboring districts, though die number isn't yet known. While Republicans applauded the ruling and die potential for new elections in some or many of Texas* 30 House districts, Democrats decried die effect and said die current plan should be used in November.

Police and fire officials say there is nothing linking all seven fires, a string .ti Seventh fire yields few clues, tries city’s patience that began with the church firesf ovemight Sunday and continued witho fires mostly at vacant buildings around town through Thursday morning. A police dog searching tile site of the ~ latest blaze, which consumed tile aban-^ doned Nutrena Feeds store, found two J items that could help determine j whether the fire was intentionally set.
