The Archives of the University of Texas at Austin are engaged in
an effort to collect the campaign literature, records, and correspond-
ence of candidates for state and national office in the Texas election
of 1968. The director of the Archives, Chester Kielman, believes that

the regular National Archives microfilm publication program which
has been in existence since 1941 and which films about 6,000,00o pages
of records annually. It will be the first time that records in the Federal
Records Centers have been included in the microfilm publication
