SB 40C, approved by a vote to 28 to 3 and sent to the House, opposes the Israeli boycott by Arab countries and would prohibit Texas firms from doing business with any "Arab country invoking the boycott. A great deal of Texas wealth comes from oil and gas technology know-bow badly needed by the Arabs. They also need contractors to build the major cities they are planning, their new roads, and. hnicians to help develop their industrial economies. They are spending an. unprecedented amount o money to modernize and industrialize their countries and they are willing to spend it with Americans. Because the American way of life is the one they admire most and hope to emulate. SB 400 is treading on   because 'it will strengthen opposition in Congress to the boycott and may ulltmately result in legislation that will severly curtail trade with the Arabs. Such legislation would be discriminatory against Americans and all the lucra- tive construction and purchasing contracts will go to other countries. The United States boycot- ted Cuba and participated in the boycott against Rhodesia. Why is it morally uplifting for us to impose sanctions against Cuba and Rhodesia. while it is reprehensive for the Arabs to boycott Israel? Actually our participation in the Rhodesian affair had far less justification than the Arab boycott. Texas legislators should be aware that a class action suit has been filed in California against the state for ap- proving a similar bill. The suit alleges that if the sanctions against doing business with the Arab countries are upheld, t * Califorma will be deprived of enormous nts of tax revenue and sources of crude oil." So, too. will Texas. Furthermore, the suit says, "The Arab nations are in a state of war againstlsrael for many reasons including the fact that Israel illegally occupies Arab lands. The Arab economic boycott against Israel is a legite exercise of the sovereign rights of the Arab nations and is based on the intionally recognized principle that a nation cannot be compelled to trade with its enemy. The Carter administration has threatened to shelve the Trinity River and other national water projects because of the cost benefit ration. Perhaps we should take a careful look at the cost benefit ratio of another major U.S. project. FrQm 1946 to 1976 the United States has given Israel $7,457,172,000 in foreign aid. In addition an unknown number of dollars {estimated to be in the billions also} has gone to Israel from Americans in contributiens, sale of Israel bonds, and other sources. During the same period our total aid to Arab countries (Algeria, lahrain,:. Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, ]eibya, Morocco, Oman, Saudi lrabia Syria, and Yemen! was $5,833,483,000. Israel with 3-million people received ahnost $2-billion more than all the Arab countries with their popul- ations of more than 22 million. Applying the cost benefit ration formula, which seens to be so popular in Washington right now, our investment in Israel is a real loser. Yet we are considering legislation to ban trade with the Arab countries at a time when we cduld realize s return on our 20-year investment. It's either bad business judgement, bad politics, or both.

In the name of "sport" and :i:i " :::: "entertainment", a bloody spectacle has continued for years in Texas. In enclosed fields, greyhounds and other racing dogs are encouraged to run by being given a live animal to chase-- usually a terrified rabbit. Since the rabbit cannot escape from the fenced field, the "sport" consists in seeing which dog will maul and rip the rabbit first. If two. dogs reach a rabbit at the same time. they literally tear it apart. The rabbit begins to scream before the dogs reach it; it senses its coming death. Have you ever heard a rabbit scream? It sounds somewhat like a human baby. This "sport" is called "coursing". Some people think it's great fun on a fine Sunday morning to bring their children to watch the dogs run and the rabbits die. Last Sunday, I went to a coursing meet near Fort Worth to see whether it was as cruel as I had heard. It was worse. I will never forget a tsen-aged girl who was screaming at her dog: "Kill that rabbit! Kill that rabbit!" Her dog had brought to her the bleeding and still-living rabbit. The rabbit was making a pitiable bleating sound. It was slow to die. Nearby, spectators munched hamburgers and drank beer. Sintilar places are in Waco, Houston, San Antonio, Lubbock. and other Texas cities. That is "coursing". Another method of training dogs to run is to take a fully conscious rabbit (chickens and kittens have also been used) and hang it upside down on a mechanical arm that is driven around a track. When the dogs reach the dangling rabbit, they bite it and tear it. The kill it by stages: it does not die quickly. A rabbit may survive a race. If it does, it is used- maimed and bleeding- in another race. Some humane- minded trainers use artificial and mechanical lures to teach dogs to run. As a matter of fact, the National Greyhound Coursing Associaiton sells such a mechanical lure (the Jack-a-!ttte), Even so, most people cling to the old way and argue that the dog must taste blood. The people who cling to the old way come to equate cruelty with "sport"; even worse, they regard, with indifference, the suffering of a living creature that can feel pain and terror. Some may even regard the rabbit's suffering with pleasure. Such cruelty has no place in a civilized society. Help stop this cruelty! A bill now in the Texas legisla- ture would make illegal the use of live animals as "bait" in the racing and coursing of dogs. It is House Bill 887. Write to your State Repre- sentative and to your State Senator and tell them how you feel about this cruelty. Write also to Representative Chris Samos, Chairman of the House Committee on Busi- ness and Industry, P.O, Box 2910, Austin, Texas 78769. Urge them to support the bill actively. Ask other people to do the same. Two years ago this bill died in committee because too few people cared. Surely we have reached a point in our human develop- ment where we do not have to find our pleasure in the sufferings and terrified deaths of other creatures.
