Transcript Harris County Wornens Political Caucus (713) 41,3-6247 Houston, Texas 770b3 P.O.BOX 5316 DECEMBER 1977 WHITMIRE WINS CONTROLLER POST HCWPC Becomes Issue in Run-Off "When you begin with the HCWPC as a muclcus to build upon, which has already got the feelers out in terms of a house orqan, lake Breakthrough and various other things, naturally that's a jump, a headstart/' said Steve Jones Nov. 22, replying to a question comparing his organization to that of his opponent's.

Jones, however, consistently referred to his opponent's supporter, as "left-wing", thinking in terms of bloc support rather than efforts to attract d i v iers i f ied support. That mi spercept ion was clearly shown when he referred to Breakthrough as a "house organ". The newspaper, founded two years ago under the sole ownership of Janice Blue, is now a corporation whose Stockholders are all women.
