COLORADO FLOOD SHOULD NOT STOP CONTROL WORK Floods on the lower Colorado river below Buchanan dam were unfortunate for more reasons than the dam- age to crops and property. As badly as the state needs flood control, the Colorado flood may set it back for many years. People may become fearful of having rivers dammed to protect them from flood waters, believing that recurrence of the recent Colorado incident is pos- sible. Already we find a difference of opinion being expressed by engineers as to the probable reason for the floods and whether the dams protect adequately. Texas needs more flood control. There can be no doubt about it. This year happens to have brought an un...

Maverick's statemeni was in answer to a prepared statement by Green published today that said the defeated congressman was a misquoter "an ill-temper- ed, ill-informed, unstable and half-baked legislator." Green's statement accused Maverick of having published an incorrect version of an interview between himself and Green be- fore the recent Texas primary election, in which Paul J. Kilday with the A.

Great good has already come from Sweetwater joining 700 towns and cities in the national movement.
