The mayors of Dallas and Ft. Worth easily won reelection Saturday, and San Antonio's former mayor regained her office by a commanding margin as elections were held in four Texas cities. The least predictable contest appeared to be for mayor in El Paso, where political observers forecast a runoff from the six-candidate race. In Dallas, with 151 of 299 precincts reporting, Mayor Annette Strauss had 73% of the vote to 20% for attorney Peter Lesser. In San Antonio, former Mayor Lila Cockrell won with 59% of the vote to 31% for insurance executive Carl Mauthe.

Pleased that voters have approved building a new, domed stadium, Mayor Henry G.
