LOB ANGELES MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL EDITOR Thursday, July 23, 1959 WELCOME, MR. SAM As the voice of the Whole community we extend a most cordial and hearty welcome to Mr. Sam Rayburn, the dis-i tinguished and able Speaker of the House of Representa- tives who will honor us with his presence Saturday evening;' l Mr. Rayburn is more than one of the great leaders of the i Democratic Party. Nor is it enough to say of him that he! has Speaker of the House longer than any other man in the history of the republic. These accomplish- ments will assure him of a deserved place in history. But they will not and cannot tell the whole story. It is doubt- ful if any man in modern times has had a greater influence on the legislative branch%f the government of the United States. His influence is not confined to the House where he presides so ably. It reaches over into the Senate; for virtually half of the members of that select body received their first legislative experiences under his able guidance " while they served in the House. Both of our Senators, Sena- tor Randolph and Senator Byrd, looked to Mr. Rayburn for friendly advice and counsel when they served in the House. The same can be said of many other members of the Senate, including the distinguished Majority Leader of the Senate, Lyndon B. Johnson. By Mrs. Mary Bruce Furr Mr. and Mrs. M. W.
