AUSTIN,—It used to be the dog-
wood blooms which set off politics
in Texas. But the Legislature
changed that when it moved pri-
maries to May and June.
So, Texas candidates are losing no
time in getting down to roughhouse
Gov John Connally and his rival
for the Democratic nomination, Don
.VArbo rough, spoke to the AFL-CTO
Committee on Political Education,
but neither asked for endorsement.
Labor made no endorsements in
races for state offices. Instead, It
centered its interest on Washington.
It gave strong support to President
Lyndon Johnson and Senator Ralph
W. Yarborough and to the re-elec-
tion of Texas Congressmentvho sup-
port the Johnson program. It urged
union members to help defeat Con
gresamen who do not support the
Republican candidate for U. S.
Senate George Bush complained that
COPE failed to Invite Republicans
to its meeting.
John Van Cronkhlte of Dallas an-
nounced his Withdrawl from the Sen-
ate race after what he called “un
believable pressure”. But Gordon
McLendon, conservative Democrat,
uid he was In the race Has solid
as a grand piano set in concrete”.
Former District Attorney Dan
Sullivan of Andrews provided the
upset of the session. COPE leaders
recommended that the group sup-
port former Sen. Robert W. Baker
of Houston for the statewide Con-
gressional seat now held by Rep.
Joe Pool. Sullivan made a. speech

it came to a showdown, the roll call

404 contestants for 150 seats in the
House of Representatives, with 13
are among the 83 House candidates
on the Republican side of the ledger.
Two of the 18 female candidates
are lncumbentar-Miss Maud baacks
of El Paso and Mrs. Myra Banfield
Texas also bouts a woman state
senator, Mrs. Neveille Colson of
Navasota. She is a veteran with 24
years’ service in the House and Sen-
ate. However, Senator Colson drew
a four-year term lut year and la
not up for re-election.
History shows that women have
had scant success in state elections.
One notable exception is' the late
Miriam A. Ferguson, governor of
the state from 1925 to 1827 and
from 1933 to 1935.
Whether their luck will be better
in legislative races in 1964—a leap
year—remains to be seen. It may
be significant to note that u of Jan-
uary, 1964, the number of Texu wo-
men aged 21 and over was estimated
to be a little more than 3,000,000,
while their male counterparts were
'estimated to number less than 3,-
