Advocate (Newspaper) - February 9, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 275 TELEPHONE Ht S-H51 HISTORIC SITE VICTORIA, TEXAS, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1964 Established 1818 Civil War Marker To Be Dedicated By HOY GUIMES Advocate Staff Writer From first to lasl, the Civil War stripped nearly men and boys for the Confederate armies from a total Texas population of a little more than 600 000 Texas, of course, had little real experience with the desolation of fire' and sword in the years 1861-65. The shores and borders of the Lone Star State were defended with such success that there was no effective occupation until after the war, in contrast to most of the other stales of the Confederacy. There was no Sherman march hell-benl toward t h sea in a torch-light procession of ravaged lowns and burning homes. There was no Sheridan ransacking and pillaging Ihe valleys, no locust plagues of contending armies grind i n g back and forth across the stale. Bul (here was hardship enough, because Texas was drained of men, money and resources. Such fighting as went on with- in the stale was confined al- most entirely lo the Gulf Coast, at C-alveslon, at Sabine Pass, mid down around Brownsville. Civil War centennial obser- vances, accordingly, have n o I been notable in Texas. Rallying Point But n significant event of this kind is scheduled for next Sun- day, Feb. IG, in Victoria with the formal dedication of a marker at one of the chief mi- lling poinls of Ihe Confederate forces of Texas in the early days of the War. This is Ihe silc of Camp Henry K. McCul- loch. approximately two miles from the Victoria city limits on the Cucro highway. The dedication will be one of the high of a regional meeting called for Victoria by the Texas State Historical Sur- vey Committee, with the Victo- ria Counly Historical Survey Committee serving as hosts. To Hear Reports Thc regional gathering has Stations Curb Stamp Giving An estimated GO to 70 per cent of the city's 100 service station operators have given up trading stamps, it was disclosed Saturday. James Rother, treasurer of the Victoria unit of the Texas Association of Petrol- eum Retailers, said the move b e g n tentatively about two weeks ago, but that the big push has occur- red within the past two or three days. "I don't know where it's going lo Holher said, "but I doubt if there are over 15 stations in town (hat still offer slamps." Rother added (hat he was included among those who had abandoned stamps. He estimated that of the 100 stations in the city, eight or ten of those, (he bigger, ones, of Odessa, president -state-wide committee, chief purpose of hearing reports from to counties in the area which have not participated in previous regional meetings. These counties la be represent- ed here include Jim Wells, Re- fugio, N'ueces, Calhoun, Jack- son, Caldwcll, Fayetlc, Colo- rado, Fort licnd and Karnes. The assembly will gel under way at p.m. Sunday in the Central Power and Light Co. auditorium, and will be called to order by Mrs. lien T. Jordan, chairman of the Victoria County committee. Frank G. Guillard, Victoria attorney, will act as master of ceremonies. Distinguished Speakers County Judge Wayne L.

Will Davis of Austin, a member of Ihe slate committee, will deliver an sddre.ss .-ind former Stale Sen. William S. Fly of Victoria will speak on Camp Henry K.

Against Republican opposi- tion, the House put off a final vote until Monday. The Repub- licans had hoped (o he free lo attend Lincoln Day rallies next week. A long day in which the lead- ership hoped to push the bill to a final vote was spent instead on the fringes of the controver- sial section aimed at providing equal employment opportunities tor Negroes. Wide-Hanging Dchalc First, after a wide-ranging dis- cussion of the differences and similarities between men and women, the House voted 1GB-133 to broaden the proposed ban against racial discrimination in employment to include discrimi- nation against women. Then, after an equally circui- lions route it voted lo exempt from coverage of Ihe proposal ail church-re la ted schools, large- ly on the argument that other- wise, they might have to hire atheistic janitors. The House defeated, 123-94, an amendment by Rep. John Dow- dy, D-Tex., that would have brought discrimination on the grounds of age under the bill, too.
