Representatives were attending
from the SACC, Associated Gen-
eral Contractors (AGC), Gulf

Assn, and other construction
groups. Key discussion point in
this policy meeting is the question
of hourly pay increases. This
problem has tied up area con-
struction with the construction

6 per cent bike or a 15-cent aver-
Meantime, George Cook, execu-
tive secretary of the Orange-Port
Arthur Building Trades Council,
commented, “The situation looks
about the same and is still tied
up. It’s possible something might
be worked out over the weekend
and we stand ready to go into
negotiations any time if asked.”
A joint policy meeting also has
been called for the Beaumont and
Orange - Port Arthur * Building
Trades Council on Monday at 10
a.m. at the Labor Temple, 950 N.

Shepperds statement was in a
letter to Gladewater newspaper
publisher Harry Kates.
It apparently kills speculation
that he might run for the. U.S.
Senate if a vacancy occurred.
“Because of the heavy work
load of pending cases at this
time especially in the U.S. Su-

not be fair to resign and leave

Shepperd, 39, has been attorney
general since Jan 1, 1953. He first
came to state office as secretary
of state by appointment from
Gov. Shivers in early 1952.
“The program I have started
can be finished by the end of mx.

sure of, before making any an-

“I am not, therefore, a candi-

Shepperd said he toils been

reason for not seeking that office
at that time was the same reason
as now—"because I had started

Lyndon Johnson called on Texas
Democrats yesterday to quit
squabbling and send a united

willing to head—to the national
convention at Chicago.

plea tor party unity, brushing off
questions about the feud between
Texas Democrats and asserting

Tuesday night what he will do
about Speaker Sam Rayburn’s
proposal that he lead the Texas
delegation to Chicago and also go

Johnson told reporters at his
Pedemales River Tanch that he
has no quarrel with Gov. Shivers,
but he made some comments
about party loyalty that might be
taken as aimed at Shivers.
Shivers bolted the party in, 1952
to back Dwight Eisenhower. He
hasn’t said yet whether he would,
support the Democratic nominee
this year. On that general subject,
“The Republicans have disap-
pointed our farmers and ranchers,
our oil and gas producers, our
business men and our, working
men. The time will not soon come
again when Texas will want to be
led Into their party."
Johnson said Texas people are
“tired of factionalism."
“Tbsy want reasonable man to
convention, speak the voice of the
it majority of Texas, fight to
iinate the best candidate, and
come back and do everything we
can to elect Trim in November.” ,
Shivers has sail
hopes the Democratic
will name a candidate he
port and adopt a platform he
back. He has voiced unyielding
opposition to Adlai Stevenson. '
Nearly everything else Johnson
had to say was apparently de-
signed to bring long-battling Texas
Democratic factions into accord.

Yesterday afternoon, James
Darwin Dockens, 34, Silsbee me-
chanic, his face a welter pf bruises
and bearing a long cut, described
the Wednesday night attack which
took place five miles north of Vi-
dor near the North Tram road.
“I met these boys, strangers to
me, at the Texas Club in Beau-
mont. I had driven down from
Silsbee for a good time. We had
several drinks—beer, whisky and
I guess everything else,” Dockens
He said he agreed to give the
two men a ride to Vidor and one
of them drove his car, a 1947
Pontiac sedan. At the Tram road,
the car was stopped and Dockens
was asked if he had any money.
“When I replied no, one of them
pulled something out of his pocket
—it looked like a big pocket knife
or it could have been a pistol.
They slugged me with their fists
while I was sitting in the back
seat and really worked me over"
the mechanic commented.
■Hi* face was proof of an attack.
Both cheeks were swollen to
nearly double normal size and the
long cut was visible under his
right eye. His shirt and pants were
bloods tamed. ,>
“I got put of the car and ran to
keep them from killing me. I did
not have a chance in>theie,” Doc-
kens said. He was stripped of his
wallet, about a dollar in change
and the men took bis shoes and
hat, he related.

throughout the night. Thursday
