Advocate (Newspaper) - May 27, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 20 TELEPHONE HI S-1U1 VICTORIA, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 1964 2 Oklahoma Incumbents Defeated Redistricting Plan Approved OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla (AP) pair of Oklahoma incum- bents, U.S. Sen. J. Howard Ed- mondson and 6th District Rep. Victor Wlckersham went down lo stunning defeats in Demo- cratic runoff elections Tuesday night. Youthful State Senator Fred Harris, who campaigned as a "new scored a landslide victory over Edmondson who got the Senate job in January 1963 after the death of Robert S. Kerr. Harris' next big battle is in the general election campaign when he goes against glamour candidate Bud Wilkinson, form- er football coach turned Repub- lican politician. Veteran Defeated Wickersham's defeat was an even greater surprise. The 18- year congressional veteran was edged out by Jed Johnson Jr., 24-year-old son of the late Okla- homa congressman. Johnson just barely succeeded in win- ning a runoff spot against Wick- ersham after the May 5 primary election. Unofficial returns from 2947 of the state's precincts in the senate race gave Harris Edmondson fn the congressional race, with all of the district's 607 precincts reporting, Johnson got Wickersham Keapportionrnent Voters also overwhelmingly approved a legislative reappor- tionment plan which rural resi- dents termed a "life or death" struggle against federal court reapportioning powers. The proposed amendment would base representation in a 48-membcr Senate mainly on area, with some consideration given la population. Representa- tion in a 128-member House would be determined by a popu- lation ratio system, with each of the state's 77 counties guar- anteed at least one representa- tive. Florida Rejects Pledged Slate MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Florida Republicans rejected Tuesday night a slate of delegates pledged to Sen. Barry Goldwa- ter, and Democrats nominated a candidate for governor sworn to battle against civil rights. Haydon Burns, 52-year-old mayor of Jacksonville and a tough-talking foe of the civil rights bill, won the Democratic nomination for governor and al- most certain election in Novem- ber, when he meets Republican Charles Holiey, a state legislal- ABILENE, Tex. (API -Beet prices in Abilene supermarkets revived somewhat Tuesday from weekend lows that gave housewives such bargains as sirloin steak for 49 cenls a pound and short ribs for only eight cents a pound. But file competitive squeeze may force prices down to near rock bottom again by the week- end. Roy Furr of Lubbock, presi- dent of Furr's, Inc.. a leading food chain in the Southwest, said he situation in Abilene had no relation to the market. "Prices just got out of hand n Furr said, "ll's lurely a competitive thing, as 'ar as I can see." The Abilene beef price war ast weekend brought steak that lad sold for 1.19 a pound down :o 49 cents.

WENT RIBS Beef War Rips Abilene Market Short ribs apparently took the most severe beating with prices from 37 to eight cenls a pound. Butchers complained that the war was causing overall deficits in meat markets, even though pork and poultry prices remain- ed stable. A representative concensus indicated that the bottom fell out of the beef price market be- cause of intense competition among large chain supermar- kets for the weekend shopper. The Abilene Reporter News said one meat market sold 000 pounds of beef last week to housewives. "They must be feeding their families beef three times a day and for midnight snacks, one butcher said. Furr said the beef price war was like a gasoline war. "It could break out anywhere, at he said.
