Tix to or vol. 76 no. 236 Cuero Texas sunday october 4, 1970 i 12 pages Ioc the u. S. Senate race we d like to vote for both Bush and Bentsen by Jack Howerton. Record publisher we were driving Back to the hotel from the Alro iome in Houston the other night when we stopped for a a of Fie licht in the neighbourhood of Rice University. While we were waiting for the Light to change a Young Man presumably a Rice student ran up beside the car and said Quot How come you have both Bush and Bentsen stickers on the Back of your car Quot Quot because we like them both and we plan to vote for both of them a we told him Quot that he said As he returned to the curb line. The answer we gave to the Rice student is just a bout tin same we Are forced to give our readers at the present time although the general election is Only four weeks away in Plain words we like the nominees of both political parties for United states senator from Texas and we wish we could be permitted to vote for both of them but this i impossible without amending the Constitution. To further clarify our stand with regard to these to outstanding candidates we reprint a letter we have just written to Jim Allison jr., Deputy chairman of Republican National committee Jimmy is a personal Friend of ours a former newspaper Man whose f r James Allison or. Is owner pub i. Her of the Midland daily news. He helped to manage the Campaign for the practically then unknown George Bush who was unsuccessful in his attempt to unseat Ralph Yarborough in 1964 simply because Lyndon Johnson was running for president on the democratic ticket. Jimmy accompanied George Bush to Cuero when he spoke to several hunted Dewitt citizens at a Barbecue at Lindenau. Our letter to Allison read As follows dear Jimmy please do not think because i have not written you that i did not appreciate your letter of Augustio because i most certainly did i did ask George Bush about you when he was in Cuero a Short time earlier in fact i had expected that you would be with him he did answer me when i asked about you and i believe these Are his exact words Quot your Friend Jimmy is now Deputy chairman for the Republican National committee where he is doing an outstanding Job in fact Jimmy is doing As Fine a Job for the Republican party As Lawrence o Brian is doing for the democrats congressman Bush also told me he missed you very much in his Campaign and wished you were available to help him but that he Lead to sacrifice you to help the National party. That is a pretty Good recommendation from a former employer. Jimmy another reason i have taken so Long to write you is that i am still undecided As to Bush or Bentsen. I like and Admire George Bush and think he has made a Good congressman. I like his answers and his thinking j on the other hand i like Lloyd Bentsen too. I believe he is also a Good sound thinker and has a Good record As a congressman. But the biggest thing in his favor in my opinion is that he has helped to rid the state of Ralph Yarborough that is exactly what you and George Bush tried to do Back in 1964 politically i am not a party Man. Jimmy. I am an Independent who votes for and supports the candidate i believe to be the Best qualified and who can do the most for the South and for Texas i wish it was possible to Send both Bush and Bentsen to the Senate. Tile Only Factor that i can see that could Lead to the election of Bentsen is that he shot the big game Yarborough before the other Hunter George Bush could get to him. I am still undetermined what to do what course to take editorially or whether to play it straight Down the Middle up to the november 3rd election. One thing you can Bank on is that the record will be just As fair and just As generous with space for our Friend or Bush As we will be for our Friend or. Bentsen. Good Luck to you Jimmy and Send my regards to your dad and thank you again for your letter.
