May 1954
New Republic;5/3/54, Vol. 130 Issue 18, p3
This article focuses on politics. There is basis for hope that after May 3, 1954, U.S. Senator Lyndon Johnson of Texas will begin to act like the Minority Leader he was elected to be 15 months ago. After that date the filings for U.S. Senator from Texas will be closed. To date, Johnson has only one, little known, Democratic opponent, and no Republican has yet entered the race. As the 1953 session of the U.S. Congress dashed through late appropriations bills, a group of U.S. Senators met in a Capitol committee room and agreed to an extended debate and group protest against "Give-away No. 2," the U.S. Administration's liquidation of the federal power program. They were ready to stretch the session a day or two if need be to let the Administration know that they would make a power give-away a major issue.
