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
, ^ 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. However,

loopholes in the law are ferreted out by
many in an attempt to evade ‘'obicctionaT
rulings. 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. Even when these “step-

Newa, urging conservative Democrats, so
often in sympathy with Republican objec-
tivM, to swap the donkey for the elephant
We believe Texas should have two major
parties. 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
