' r ' TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 1947 Four Parties in Texas Now Wkat't all thi* fuM about Texas being a name four major Pyyf in^Texaa, two of them Democratic and two Republican. Far from having too few parties, we have too many. £ weeks ago the Republican partly of Texas became split, in a manner similar to the split among Democrats a few years »Ro. Texas Republicans may not cast mangi votes, statewide, but in Republican national conventions the Texas delegation carries plenty of weight. It sometimes seems that the Republican party of Texas exists solely -for the purpose of voting in convention ev- •fy four years, then curling up in a corner f *nd going to sleep. According to news dispatches from Dal las the state Republican leaders have fallen out over whom to support in the presidential race next year. At any rate, George Hop. kina, state chairman, was supported by two-, thirds of the state executive committee in ousting from party office Alvin Lane, gen- eral counsel, and Harrs McLean, finance chairman. , ^ one of those believed to be p edgHd to Thomas E. Dewey in the next Re- publican national convention. Whether Lane and McLean are working for some other Re-, publican candidate is not known.

Just that Is the case in Cuero, where a recent segregation made between Latin- American pupila and other children in the public schools brought to light other auch in- cidents in the state. Because of political or social standing, public officials condone these practices in many cities. , The law has been interpreted to mean that no child can be separated from the reg ular public schools because af race or color. But the loophole that has been capitalised is that a student may be segregated on the ba- sis of a literary test which discovers s lan guage difficulty or other deficiency. - Tsually the facilities provided for the Latin-American students are inferior to the regular schools.

During the history of the United States, there have been two fundamental schools of thought on government and eco nomics, roughly spoken of as the Hamilton ian and the Jeffersonian. The Republican party, with ita antecedent Whig and Feder alist groups, has usually spoken for the Ham iltonian ideas. The Democrats hsve frequent ly wobbled from the Jeffersonian basis so that we have Jackson Democrats, Wilson Democrats, and Roosevelt Democrats. But certain lines of thought link all Democrats together, except for the Texas Regulars, who revolted from the Democratic party a few years ago. Their philosophy Hnlr^ them more closely with Republican thought. Which is one reason the ‘Two-Party Newa” has been urging the “Regulars** to come over Into the Republican camp. • Now that the Republicans have been split ao badly, they have probably lost their chanm for a heavy vote in Texaa in 1948 ^ We bslieve it would be heal- th L^ r .
