OFFICIAL ARRIVAL OE THE SPRING FEVER SEASON Music Festival More-lhaii ],ODO hiyli school itudcnts from Ihc SouLliwosl- crn 'part of Uie stale are expected to be here on Saturday for the a n n u a l Southwest district music festival. At this lime the finest of the school musicians will be here for Ihc various events to he held and [hen w i l l join in a concert lo be presented at K o'clock on Friday night, April (i, in Hadley Hal] at AM college. Tickets for the enlire two days' program are being sold for 50 cents each. Since half of the proceeds from the ticket sale will go to the music department oT the Las Cruces U n i o n high school and the other h a l f to defray t h e expenses, an active ticket campaign is now underway. . Hopes are entertained t h a t a record n u m b e r of tickets cnn and will be sold not only lo aid the cause b u t to insure a large audience for the concert on Friday n i g h t . Las Cruces citi/ens are i n v i t e d and urged to p l a n lo be present for tin's concert. The music f e s t i v a l is growing each year and indications arc t h a t It w i l l c o n t i n u e to grow w i t h the fine progress being made in musical lines in our high schools. There will be n total of 12 high school bands, four or- · chcstras and some 10 choruses p a r t i c i p a t i n g in the program at AM college. Jt is requiring some five judges lo conduct the a f f a i r this year. A year ago only two were required There will be as many as five events under way at one time this year. Cecil Garrison, director of the Las Cruces Union High School band, ppinls oul thnt splendid cu-operalion is being given by the music d e p a r t m e n t of AM college as well as the college for the event here. The event, of course, is not only fine for the high school students and the young musicians but U !s splendid for New Mexico AM college. As we h.ive'polnted out before, we do not know any finer wuy to emphasize aiid.rjubHcizc the opportunities which New Mexico AM college offers Ihe sludenls of Ihc slale lhan by these personal visits ol the .students lo tlic campus ot the college here. We feel-sure that Las Cruces citizens w i l l join in helping in every way possible lo make the music festival an outstanding success. Human Life Is Cheap Most of us are rather considerate and n"l near as hard hearted as some of the criminals or those g u i l t y of c o m m i t t i n g serious offenses against society. The result is t h a t loday as a n a t i o n the number of b r u t a l murders are on the incrcuso because we have failed lo hand oul punishment in keeping wilh the crime- Only recently we saw a splendid example of this; in Texas. Two brutal slayers were given sentences [ five years nnd f i f t e e n years for murders, which Ihey a d m i t t e d . One ol 1 these probably will serve from one to two years and he will be eligible for parole. The oilier w i l l probably serve only two to five years. We I h i n k t h a t is plucing h u m a n life r a t h e r chenp. We realize t h a t it is not easy to .sit on a j u r y and send people lo death for slayings. And yet 'I has reached Lhc' point where those who want lo murder can do so and be assured they will only have to serve a short lime in prison for the crime. We have created lh;il situation Vv mir failure to punish those who have taken a h u m a n life. We have become soft in handing down verdicts of death for utr slayers. And murder appears to he on 'he Increase. We can f u l l y appreciate Ihc fact t h a t it is not easy to take the l i f e of Ihose who have taken t h e l i f e of others. We become sympathetic and try to be understand. 1 !!); and so we give l i g h t scnlenccs for our slayers. And as a result the tlaycrs increase. Those who lake h u m a n lives, of course, have not given much consideration or sympathy to Ihose whose lives they lake. They hnvc not given much consideration lo Ihc members of the family of the i n d i v i d u a l they k i l l , They have not cared w h a t society t h i n k s (if them or society's efforts In curb their .desire to kill. Thai is, they do nol t h i n k about t h i s . u n t i l they ore being tried for the'r crime. Then they want consideration extended lo Ihem which they did nol extend lo others. They w a n t kindness shown when they refused to display kindness lo others. And today sl.iylngs are becoming more nnd more common. People are .slain for the flimsy excuse and no one seems lo care very much about it. Nol only are the murders and slayings on the increase but we as citizens seemingly arc becoming more callous aboul them and just tuku them as a mailer nf course. We know t h a i Ihese slayings are nol "being committed by Individuals of alt classes mul groups. They nvc being carried out by those w i l h l i l l l c education and those w i l h plenty of education. Family training, of course, as well as church training, lias and does teach us It Is wrong to kill. Dili t h a t has had l i t t l e effect up lo the present time. Apparently Ihc only answer to reduce Ihe number of killings is to hand out more death penalf'cs to those win: want lo take" the law in their own hands and who deal out death lo others. This position is going lo have- lo be taken by those who servo on our iurles. They are the ones who return the ver- dlcls and who hand out Ihc puimhmi'nl. Ellher we set the examples and mnkc examples of those who kill others or Ihe killings w i l l c o n t i n u e to Increase. PRIVATE OPINION Mr, OrvlLta K PriPKlluy Publisher SUM-NCWH, LIIH Cruets, N.
