If the Dealey family has made a contribution to Texas journalism it is a horrible example. As a newspaper, the Dallas News is an abomination. It has been :an abomination for three generations. It is renown throughout the United States as the most vicious voice of the lunatic fringe of the right in publication. Three generations ago, the Dallas News never published an issue which didn't include vic- ious attack on Gov. Jim Hogg. Throughout the years has maligned for the sake of malice. It has opposed for the sake of obstruction and stubborn negation. It has been unrelent- ing in its scurrilous attacks on Sen. Ralph Yarborough. It gave birth to and nurtured the libelous $50,000.00 Billy Sol Estes concoction. Everyone will remember when Mr. Dealey was invited with other publishers to breakfast with Pres. Kennedy in the White House and how Mr. Dealey took ad- vantage of the occasion to make a speech in unspeakable bad taste, insulting to the President, while accepting his hospitality. For this outrage against decency and good man- ers Dealey should have received an award---Boor-of-the- Year, or some such. These remarks about the Dallas News are not prompt- ed by reason of the fact that we are in constant disagree- ment with theNews, which we are. There are many papers "with whose editorial policies we consistently disagree. But we respect their viewpoint as being fairly presented and well reasoned. The only consistent editorial policy of the Dallas NeWs, however, is blind unreasoning hate. There are great newspapers in the United States. There are some very good newspapers in Texas. The Dallas News is not one of them. PUBLIC SCHOOL WEEK By JOHN CONNALLY Special observance of increased emphasis on our edu- cation system has been marked annually for fifteen years by a Public Schools Week in Texas. During this period parents are encouraged to visit the public schools, and all citizens are urgekl, 'through special programs to recognize the tremendous importance of our system of education. Our goal is to make Texas public schools the finest in the nation, and to achieve this our citi- zens are urged to take an active interest in the school sys- tems and to cooperate with their school boards, superinten- dents, principals and teachers. Never before in our history has there been a greater need for educated leadership. As we rush to train young people in science and technology to keep pace with world it is also important to remember that our public schools will furnish our tomorrow's leaders with the basic human, moral and spiritual foundations necessary for more advanced training and knowledge. THEREFORE, I as Governor of Texas, do hereby des- the period of March 1-5, 1965, as: PUBLIC SCHOOL WEEK in Texas.

What you do get is hardtop styling-- with curved frame]ess side windows--in every Corvair closed model. The transmission and driveline hump you don't get means more foot room.
