Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 146 ABILENE, TEXAS, M 999ftrt'NING, NOVEMBER 9, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Auociattd Pnu (ff) PAGE ONE Thanks to Tuesday's voting some major changes have come about on the local political scene. The changes will be most ap- parent in the spring of 1964 when the parties begin the convention procedure of nominating presi- dential and vice presidential candidates. Taylor County Republicans will have, for the first time, a louder voice in their state con- vention than local Democrats will have in their state party gathering. And within the county the po- litical strength has been re- shuffled. Taylor County's hard-working, well-organized Republicans last the first time in history, according to oldtimers' memory carried the county in a general election for their candidate for governor. Convention strengths are based on the vote for the party nominee for governor "in the last general election" mean- ing, come the presidential year of 1964 last "Tuesday. Each precinct will have in the county convention one vote for every 25 votes cast for the party can- didate. John Connally or Jack Cox in this case, and each county gets in the state conven- tion one vote for each 300. Republicans polled an unoffic- ial Taylor Re- publicans will -have 28 votes in their 1964 state conventions. Democrats polled an unoffi- cial for Connally so they will have only 25 votes. (This year, based on Price Daniel's one-sided victory in the general election of 1960, Taylor Democrats had 53 state votes to Taylor Republicans' 32.) When the faithfuls of the two parties gather in state con- ventions in 1964 to select dele- gates to the national conven- tions the Taylor GOP will also be in a better caucus position than the Democrats because they fared better in compari- son with neighboring counties than did the Demos. At these next state gatherings delegates will caucus by con- gressional districts. Taylor Republicans will have their 28 votes and, according to the latest figures at hand, the other counties in the 17th dis- trict will have some 50 votes between them. Taylor Democrats will have their 25 votes for their caucus and Democrats from the other 17th district counties will, as fig- ures now stand, have be- tween them some 66. Local voters by their Tues- day balloting also shook up the local political power distribu- tion. Ignoring any charge which might come from any precinct realignment this is the situa- tion: Precinct 5 (Elmwood Brook- hollow which votes at Boy Scout Headquarters) will have the biggest vote in the 1964 county Demo convention, 21. That is a drop from the 40 Demo voles it had this year. Precinct 38 (Northwest Abilene voting at Calvary Baptist) will drop, in Demo strength, from 46 to 20 votes. Box 11, ACC, will have only 7 Demo convention votes- four less than Box 10, Woodson. But Box 5 will have 44 GOP county votes. Box 38 will have 35 and Box 11 will have 26. The Republican strength will be concentrated in Box 5, Box 38, Box 11, Box 6 (Elmwood West voting at Dr. Pepper) and Box 14 (H-SU) with other city boxes having lesser GOP power. But Democratic strength will be more evenly spread. Some dozen precincts will have 10 or more votes, ranging up to Box 5's 21. TO BEGIN EXAMINATION Former Maj, Gen. Ed- win A.'

Shortly before the Defense De- partment announcement, the Slate Department had said the at-sea checking does not remove the need for on-site inspection in Cuba to confirm that the nuclear threat to U.S. security has, indeed, been fully eliminated. The Defense Department gave first word of arrangements for at- sea examinations Wednesday but did not say how it would be done. Thursday's announcement indicat- ed it would be by visual inspec- tion from alongside.

Although the announcement spoke of alongside inspections, a Pentagon spokesman said the pos- sibility of boarding the Soviet ves- sels is not eliminated if that is deemed necessary. Stevenson -and Soviet Deputy For- eign Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov and their advisors conferred for 3V2 hours at the Soviet mission to the United Nations. Amid reports that the Soviet Union was hardening its position in the negotiations Stevenson told a reporter afterward: "We had another long talk about the un- resolved issues. There are several outstanding issues." Asked if the unresolved issues included on-site inspection of the dismantling of Soviet missile bases and the removal of Soviet jet bombers, he replied in the af- firmative. He added that the negotiators still are arguing about the remov- al of the 20 or more jet bombers.

The Pentagon reported that three Soviet ships presumably carrying nuclear rockets have been sighted outbound from Cuba; and they probably will be the first ones contacted by the U.S. war- ships. The Defense Department said the first, contact may come about daylight Friday. The department announcement said that in addition to the medi- um-range and intermediate-range rockets that have been spotted in aerial pictures, missile trans- porters and other vital rocketry equipment have been seen loaded aboard Soviet ships, including some now at sea. In an impromptu news confer- 'etice, Soviet Premier Khrushchev said the missiles "probably are Ion their way" back to the Soviet Union and mentioned a figure of 40. A U.S. Defense Department spokesman said Thursday "We'll certainly be looking for a mini- mum of 40 missiles" when the warships rendezvous with the So- viet merchantmen.

The new Red Chinese attacks came in the eastern end of the mile disputed frontier around Walong, 15 miles from the Burma border. A Defense Minis- try spokesman said one Indian was killed, two missing and an estimated 15 Communists were killed or wounded. Red Chinese troops tried to es- tablish themselves on the flank of Walong, but an Indian counterat- tack dislodged them, the spokes-i man said. The Reds' strategy, the -man said, appeared to be aimed at bypassing Indian defenses in the Luhit River valley around Wa- long by going up the jungle moun- tain slopes on both sides. The Reds are moving down the Luhit valley from Rima, Tibet, di- rectly to the north.

By GARTH JONES AUSTIN John Connally said Thursday the prin- cipal aim of his administration will be to stimulate industrial ex- jpansion and economic growth in JTexas. Connally sketched his plans for the next two years in his first news conference since defeating Republican Jack Cox in Tuesday's balloting. Connally will be inau- guarted Jan. 15. Smiling and rested after election liigh night strain, Connally told news reporters that attraction of out-of- state industry might even become part of his inauguration pro- gram, Connally noted that his platlorm calls for a bureau of commerce to handle attraction of both indus- try and tourists. He was nskcd about a possible Big Thicket Stale Park. "I don't know the facts about a Big Thicket park but I would be reluctant to move to add anything to the present park before the Texas Tech park study pro- gram is he said. Earlier Thursday, outgoing Gov. Price Daniel named a 30-member committee of prominent Texans to consider creation of a Big Thicket State Park in Southeast Texas forest lands. "When we move it should be a concerted move to improve all state Connally said. "Per- haps we will close some and per- haps we will return some others to their counties." He said he had no plans to ask an emergency appropriation for present park system operations. In answering other questions, Connally said: That he will try to talk with most Democrat legislators and heads of state agencies and boards before he takes office. He said a temporary office Is being set up in Austin and he would retain a small staff here until in- auguration. That he will not submit a de- tailed- budget proposal to compete with Die budget submitted to the 1963 legislature by Daniel. Tflat has received congratu- President Lyndon Johnson but not from President John Kennedy. "I talked to the vice president about three minutes when he and a bunch of Texans in Washington ca'led to wish me good he said. That he hoped Texas could get by the next two years without-new taxes "but that remains to, be seen..." He said he had no recom- mendations on the source of new taxes. That he thought any proposal to increase tuition in state col- leges should be studied "from the angle of whether a tuition In- crease would keep people from going to school. I don't want a tuition raise to be an obstacle to education." That he is not solvttit after the campaign "but I won't know for a few days how insolvent I am until the bills are added up." That he predicted that l.S mil- lion persons would vote and ht would carry all but about SO conn- ties. "The test word I had wai that I carried ht lalkms by telephone from Vice said triumphantly. ;
