RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Seventy Democrats and one Republican and the Republican has as good a chance as any of the others Thats one way to sum up the special election Tuesday for the United States Senate in Texas which has recruited 71 candi dates and has a number of other ways of being unique It started out rather specially Texas law provides that the governor can appoint a succes for only to a duly sworn senator So Vice President elect Lyndon B Johnson took the oath on Jan 3 and then re signed three minutes later to allow Gov Price Daniels de signec William A Cowboy Bill him Blakley D to succeed NOW BLAKLEY is running for legitimate election to the of fice in a race that has so many entries its harder than usual to handicap The previous record number of candidates was the 29 who contested for the Senate seat eventually won in 1941 by W Lee Pass the Pappy ODaniel Biscuits Numbers alone are not enough to enchant the hardy Texas voler although in this elec tion in the 249 of the 254 vot ing divisions which do not have voting machines he will have to strike the names of 70 candi dates and leave one For the first lime in modern memory a Texas Negro is running for Ihe Senale one Eraslus Sams a farmer There are Ihrce Johnsons in the race none of them related to Lyndon B There are a brace of Wilsons and several other duplications There arc three women one of whom is preacher And there is Bing Crosbys fatherinlaw Delbcrt E Grandslaff of Wesl Columbia Crosbys wife Kalhy Grant is stumping the state for him THERE ARE SOME interest ing ideologies being peddled Blakley who served briefly in the Senate as an appointee in 1957 says he believes in the right of every citizen to segregate himself Blakley also would solve the problem of gold reserves by withholding the billion scheduled to be given away in foreign aid this year Another candidale V C Logan has a scheme for end ing the recession He would of fer every married woman with a job to quit At least half of them would accept he says thereby creating 4 million jobs for men And another 2 million jobs would be created when the women spent the money There is also that Republican He is John G Tower Wichita Falls and even though Texas has never had a GOP senator so far no politically sophisli cated Texan is ruling him out of Ihe race Running against Johnson in 1960 Tower polled 926653 voles or 411 per cent of the statewide tolal SOME REPUBLICANS think that enough Democrals with a real polilical following are in Ihe race Dial they could in ef fccl kill each other off These include in addition to Blakley Texas Attorney Gen Will Wil son US Rep Jim Wrignt Slate Sen Henry B Gonzalez and former State Rep Maury Maverick Jr With so many candidates a runoff election will be necessary If the well kntfwn Democrats share about equally in the first vote Tower could get into the runoff AIRLINER MISSING SANTIAGO Chile UPI A DC3 plane of the Chilean Lincas A
