AUSTIN, Dec. 9—When Judge
J. W. Moore set the Allred $17,-
000,000 aoU-trust suit against the
major oil companies for trial next
October" S, two months after the
primaries are over, he kept alive a
good political issue.
In the first place, it relieved At-
torney Oeneral Bill McCraw from
having to prosecute the major oil
oompantas just before he makes his
race for Governor. • A suit such as
this one Is sure to bring out all
aorta of hard feelings, and if Mc-
Craw prosecuted It with vigor, it
would make the oil companies fight
him In his race for Governor. But
now the case Is going to be tried
after the primaries, and McCraw
doesn't seem very mad about it.
Moreover, this case, which serv-
ed as a vehicle for Jimmie Allred
to ride into the Governors chair
on. will be a burning issue in the
race for Attorney Oeneral.
The tenor of the campaign will
be—“Elect me attorney general and
let me prosecute the major oil
companies.*' Although the case Is
set for trial In October, it will not
be finished before a new Attorney
Oeneral baa taken office.
The case is likely to cause Lt.-
Qov. Walter Woodul a lot of votes.
He represents the conservative ele-
ment. and the cry of his opponents
will be Don t elect Woodul be-
cause he favors the major oil com-
panies and he wouldn't prosecute
the suit. Beet me Instead."
This charge, whether merited or
not. Is sure to be one of the main

eral Everett Lconey will use the

eral. When he was an assistant!
attorney general, Allred picked him
to help in the prosecution of the
anti-trust suit, and he 'has been
active in the prosecution every
since. McCraw retained him to
help after Allred left office, so
Looney can say. “Elect me because
I know more about this anti-trust j
suit than any other candidate."

In the first 10 months of this year,
for instance. 31J$0 people were killed
in traffic accidents. The record for
the first 10 months of 1936 showed a
loss of life of 39.560- There was. ac-
cordingly, an Increase of 8 per cent
In the number of fatalities.

that there was an Increase of • per

bluntly that more felonies were
committed thus far in 1937 than In
the same period last year. -There

thefts. There were mage homicides,
more cases of criminal assault.
