Williams, R-Del., said Monday a
Woman employe of the Agricul
ture Department was “railroad
ed to a mental institution for no
feason other than that she knew
too much” about the Billie Sol
Estes case.
Williams made the assertion
in a Senate speech, asserting
that the woman, Miss Mary
Kimbrough Jones, was guilty of
nothing “other than refusing to
cooperate in covering up corrup
tion” in that agency.
Delegates from seven of the
eight SWC schools approved a
plan for each individual school to
send resolutions to the business
manager of the Southwest Confer
ence Athletic Association, asking
for a uniform price of $2 for foot
ball guest tickets.
At most conference schools,
football guest tickets cost $4,
while students from the visiting
school are admitted for $1.
The proposed resolution also
called for a provision permitting
only students to buy the guest
tickets. According to the resolu
tion, guests will also have to be
accompanied by students before
they can be admitted at the re
duced price.
Resolutions from each confer
ence-member school are expected
to reach the SWC business mana
ger by the end of the present
school term, with possible action
hoped for by next fall.
Delegates also discussed the
possibility of informal meetings of
student leaders before each SWC
conference football game next fall.
The plan was approved, with
each school to work out the de
tails for the meetings, probably
to be held on the field immediate
ly prior to game time.
Attending from A&M were
Sheldon Best, ’62-63 student body
president; Bill Brashears, ’62-63
head yell leader; Battalion Editor
Alan Payne; Jim Keller, repre
senting athletics; and Mike Dodge,
