He said the state administration had done little about the problem of crime in Texas and said “I am calling upon the ladies of Texas to make this election a landslide for improved morality tor the sake of the thousands of our innocent sons and daughters.”
Shivers, in a speech at Beaumont Friday night said his record would show no vote or act that had harmed the working man or woman in Texas.
“It is just good common sense,” Shivers said, “to recognize that labor, management and government must work together for the general prosperity and we’fare,” Texans July 24 will take a look at a long Democratic ballot or a , short Republican one and decide v.ho they want for governor, congressman, judge and scores of asserted ofiice holders.

Immediate Return To Jobs Planned
WASHINGTON, July 10 fAP>—Strike threatening production of atomic and hydrogen bombs was called off today and a “gratified” President Eisenhower discarded plans to seek a Taft-Hartley law injunction against it.
CIO atomic workers voted 329-96 to return to work immediately at the atomic energy project near Paducah, Ky., reversing a decision last night to continue the walkout.
! In accepting a back-to-the-job plan worked out by Sec-! retary of Labor Mitchell and CIO President Walter Reuther, i and Paducah employees followed the example of strikers i at Oak Ridge, Tenri., who voted last night to end their walkout.
I The peace plan calls for a government review of health,
I housing and community problems of all the nation’s atomic .workers.
In all. 1.000 workers were involved in the Paducah strike and 3.500 at Oak Ridge, although all did not participate in the balloting. ' —— —

Shivers sold an opuon on 13.500 odd acres of Hidalgo County land in 1946 before he became governor for $450.000. He had paid r25,000 for the option. Shivers said it was a legitimate business transaction.
Yarborough said he had “never heard of another deal where so little was sold for so much . .
