"GILBERT BOCELL, Publisher CHAHLSIE BOCELLo Edilor In case of error m advertisement this paper will not be re- sponsible for more than the cost of the advertisement. Editorial SECRECY IN THE STATE SENATE The Governor of Texas has the duty of making hur- dreds of appointments--to boards, commissions, bureaus, However his appointments are by the ConstitutioIi, s ject to the ratification of the State Senate. The Senate ii consists of 31 members elected by the people from their respective districts. Our Senator is Galloway Calhoun. His district consists of seven counties, including Henderson. i: A practice exists in the State Senate respecting the governor's appointments which is ridiculous. It is so ri- diculous that it is time the people quit putting up with it. The practice is that the votes on confirInation of the ap- pointments are taken in secret. The people never KnOW now their Senator votes on these matters. Keeping the vote secret is a rigid rule of the Senate. Two years ago this practice came to the attention of the public when Senator A. R. Schwartz of Galveston rebelled against the system. Gov- ernor Connally submitted the name of W- St. John Carwood for appointment to the Board of Regents of the University of Texas. Garwood is a distinguished former justice of the l State Supreme Court, whose reputation has always been ,:beyond question. It is inconceivable that any right think- ing person could have considered him unqualified for the Board of Regents. But his appointment was rejected by the Senate in secret session owing to some petty animos- ities between some of the senators and the governor. At this point, Senator Schwartz announced to the public that he had supported Judge Garwood's appointment and that thereafter he, Schwartz, would not honor the rule for sec- recy and would in fact announce his vote on each appoint- ment. At the beginning of the current session of the legisla- ture, the Senators retaliated against Schwartz for his in- subordination by passing him up for the post of President : tem of the Senate, a post to which he was entitled by ority. Schwartz is an able, energetic Senator. His vot- ing record reflects clearly that he is dedicated to the best interests of the people of Texas and that he is not in Austin to carry water for some special interest as so many of the : Senators are. He has introduced a resolution this session which could amend the Senate rules so as to abolish secret votes. His resolution will not be acted upon for the reason that he is the only member of the Senate who has the cour- age to buck the system. The Senators apparently have lost sight of the fact that they are in Austin as our representatives. We sent then thei e to cast our vote on issues which come before How they conclude that they are entitled to cast our ; vote in secret and not tell us how they vote is ond un- anding. In short, any Senator who prolongs this ab- aurd system is not entitled to be honored further by being to represent (or misrepresent) the people. Reprinted From: THE WASHINGTON POST The President s special message to the Congress on im- migration provides a faithful and forthright implementation of the honorable proposals in his message on the State of the Union, It substitutes a rational basis of selection for the quilt of racial and religious prejudice which has mar- American ]mm gratmn for several decades. As Mr. observed, "Four Presidents have called attention to serious defects in this legislation. Action is long overdue." There is nothing visionary or sentimental about the im- migration policy the President advocates. It would not sub- stunt|ally increase the total number of immigrants to be ad- mitted to the United States. It would not deminish in any way the security safeguards designed to keep out political undesirables or the requirements designed to exclude per- LETTERS TO II ]Tidbits from T=Dad , k.~ J TH~ EDITOR l i By LILL1AN BRADSHAW Dallas, Texas Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Bocell i A veritable hornets nest has been stirred up i:1 Malakoff News of Trinidad with the announcement in another newspaper Malakoff, Texas that a beer election might possibly be held here some time Dear Editor: As a former Malakoffian and as a present subscriber to the News, let me say that the last three ssues of the paper have convinced me that you, both Bocells, have what it takes to succeed in the newspaper business. And to fur- ther emphasize this, herewith I am sending you a cashier's check number B64347 in the amount of five dollars and ten cents ($5.19) ---includes the state tax -- for a two-year subscription to your pa- )er, naturally, before the prices go up. Shortly after the first publi- cation, once or twice I started to write you a letter of criticism be. cause I was avidly reading your articles and at the end of the col- urns where it called to be continu- ed to another page, I found that the pages were not numbered con- secutively as we learned to count numbers in school. (Maybe my copy was the only one that came out that way). However I did no- tice the expansion of the paper content, the new heading, the new~ format for columns, and the ela- borate ads for local and surround- ing communities. I like the im- provements. Also, that same edi- tionI noticed that it omitted the subscription and I thought to my- self that with such improvements it was bound to "up the price." But when I received your second issue, I saw the half-page ad an- nouncing the increase in prices, consequently, that made me act on this renewal plus the fact that through your media you will ren- der knowledge of news as they oc- cur to and of the comnmnities in- volved. I make an occasional trip to Malakoff in connection with the this year. Evidently we are not snoopy enough as the article in the paper was the first inkling we had of any such move. What's more we have walked the streets, talked to those in authority, business men, ladies of different organization , the spit and whittle club and any one we could corner and 'till yet have our first person to meet who will admit they knew anything about such an action until they read it in i the paper or heard an Athens business man discuss it on the radio. We do not presume to deny that these people got their information on good authority but what puzzles us is ex- actly where did it come from and what is much more im- portant, where will it lead ? One fact stands out crystal clear--where before there was apathy on both the wet and dry sides--the public an- nouncement has roused both faciions into a boiling caul- dron. Rumor has it that a petition is being circulated for the wets, that the town has already had an election and vot- ed wet, that if Trinidad doesn't go wet one of our neighbor- ing towns will, but as we say, these are a}l rumors and as for us, we have not seen one whit of proof. What the out- come of all this will be, we cannot predict. We only know that very few times in our life has any one announcement stirred the people quite so forcibly. When we first read the article, we figured it was a gimmick to spur the sale of more poll taxes which we cer- tainly think every law abiding citizen should do. However when we questioned the city secretary about the number of poll taxes sold in Trinidad this year, we learned there were quite a few less than last year. It makes a fellow wonder if only the citizens of Trinidad are interested in seeing the town vote wet. We've all heard the predictions that when Robins come and you hear a Dove cooing that spring is on it's way. If this be true, spring is practically here. We awoke one morn- ing this week and saw literally hundreds of Robins attack- ing the cherry laurel bushes in our yard. They were eating the berries and in two days time had stripped them clean. They left as suddenly as they came. Another morning we heard a Dove calling to his mate. Of course it could just be that the Robins were hungry and the Dove wanted company. Latin-American Cemetery for we, a group of us who lived in Mala- koff prior to 1943, are interestedI in maintaining the upkeep, ira-I provement, preservation, and em-] bellishment of said cemetery plot. ] Next time I am visiting there Ii will stop by your office to meet you both. Mr. Scholl was most cooperative with us in publishingI Dear Fellow Texans: names of contributers to our Cem-I The President's Budget Request etery Fund and at this time I for the next fiscal year has been will ask you if you will be avail- able of such a service. I have some names of contributors to pub- lish at this time. I have always loved Malakoff because I grew up there as well as received my education in the lo- cal schools. I am grateful to have lived there with such wonderful people, My heart is and will al- ways be in Malakoff. Mr. Scholl certainly left the paper ingood hands and I am sure that you, as successors, will estab- lish yourselves among such good people and thrive to greater heights of service to the com- munity (ies). A newspaper en- hances a valuable service in pub- lishlng the occurences of things happening and it is a basic free- dom of our American way of life, so I leave you to such a task. Mrs. Bocell's columns of the '~rerritory Traveler" are remin- iscent of "Liz' Listings" of yester- year and I find them pleasing, in- formative, and interesting to pe- ruse, However, there are two ar- ticles that I miss in the paper and they are "State Capitol News" and sent to Congress; as a new mem- ber of the Senate Appropriations Committee, many of my hours will be spent in detailed study of it. Join me for a quick look at the 1966 U. S. Government budget. The largest single source of total government revenue is in- dividual income taxes, which con- tribute 38 cents on every dollar. The other major source is corpora- tion income taxes, supplying 22 cents out of every dollar. Payroll taxes and excise taxes provide 15 cents and 11 cents respectively, and the remaining 14 cents comes from miscellaneous sources. On the spending side it should first be noted that, contrary to charges that the federal govern- ment is growing at the expense of the private sector of the economy, the amount of government spend- ing as a percentage of our gross rmtional product is not increas- ing, it is decreasing. In 1965,i government spending is estimated to amountto 15.2. percent of GNP, down 1 percent from 1964. In contrast, the percentage in 1953 was 20.6 percent. In the same way the size of the public debt as a percentage rou education in fiscal 1966. For health, labor and welfare the budget asks for $8.3 billion, up $2.1 billion for 1965. Other Froposed fiscal 1966 ex- penditures and the change from 1965 are as follows: -- Special Research and Tech- nology: $5.1 billion, a decrease of $200 million. -- Conservation and develop- ment of natural resources: $2.7 billion, a decrease of $44 million. --- Commerce and Transporta- tion: 2.8 billion, a decrease of $568 million. -- Veterans Benefits and-Ser- vices: $4.6 billion, a decrease of $76 million. (This decrease is one which concerns me; it will get a very careful scrutiny from Cong- ress. ) All the foregoing, together with a few miscellaneous items, add up to a total of $99.7 billion, in the 1966 fiscal year administrative budget. In the months to come my col- leagues and I on the Senate Ap- propriations Committee will be giving each of these expenditure requests the closest scrutiny, ever mindful of the need for formulat- ing our fiscal policies to promote national strength, economic pro- gress, and individual opportunity.
