Advocate (Newspaper) - June 11, 1964, Victoria, Texas 119th 35 TELEPHONE EH 5-H31 San Antonio Hit With Own Report No Critical Water Need By ROT GRIMES Advocate Staff Writer AUSTIN The Guadalupe Blanco River Authority called in Bruce Sasse, genera] man- ager of the San Antonio Oily Wafer Board, as an adverse witness to identify a nydrological report purporting to show that the San Antonio metropolitan area would have an ample water supply from the Edwards Underground for at least 15 years and perhaps longer. The Water Board manager was directed by Dist Judge Charles 0. Bells of Travis County to answer questions over the strenuous objection of John D. Wheeler, chief counsel for San Antonio in its a p p e a 1 from decisions by the Texas Water Commission which in ef- fect give the GBRA exclusive rights to water conservation storage in Canyon Dam Reser- voir. Victor A. Bouldin of Houston, general counsel for the GBRA, insisted upon his right to sjim- mon Sasse to the stand as arlles, who rightly concluded hat this is no time to be cutting a carefully drawn measure, de- serve the (hanks of their coun- he added, On the final roll Repub- licans joined 174 Democrats in vollng for passage of Ihe bill. Agaiiist it were 115 Republicans and.60 Democrats. Unlike last year, when he was able to knock off almost Adair's; motion failed. The difference was thai Johnson Dresented a stripped-down re- quest that was billion less than President John F. Kennedy asked last year. The two-day debate sparked a 'ew sharp exchanges. The most emotional amend- ment was one to ban all aid to Egypt, except for schools and lospilals, unless the President determines that Egypt is not preparing for aggressive mili- tary action against Israel or any other eastern Mediterran- ean country. The amendment was defeat- ed, but not before a number of congressmen spoke for an hour in support of it. Rep. Thomas E. Morgan, D- Pa., chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee and floor manager of ihe bill, argued that the amendment would put the President in Ihe position of de- termining alone whether Egypt was an aggressor. Morgan said it was a "very dangerous amendment." Morgan was supported by Rep. Wayno Hays, D-Ohib, who laid he and Morgan "yield to no one" in support of Israel. His stand against Uie amend- ment prevailed by an 83-4 standing vole. The President's full request for funds, including an exlra million to step up Ihe war in South Viet Nam, was virtual- ly untouched during the amend- ment process. A COMMON INTEREST Patrick Tucker, 22, Janet Barton, 17, and William Haupltnan, 21, hail from far places but share a common interest in Victoria's Shakespearean anniversary the summer festival.
