Career Day Friday The a n n u a l career day at lliu Las Cruccs Union High School w i l l be held on Friday. This is t h e day when thc Juniors and Seniors at t h e high nchiiul have tlie o p p o r t u n i t y to a t t e n d conferences with var- j f j i i s business and professional people and to discuss these |JII:;UIOH;CS or these professions. The .students arc a f f o r d e d ,'ITI opportunity (o ask qucs- ti'm.s and In hear about the busmc:',:; or pro[C"';i"H 'n v-'hicli Ihcy have expressed an Interest. They have a chance to lenrn first handed facts and data H o a r d i n g t h e profession or business. They can from these conferences h a v e considerable help in deciding just w h a t l i n o of study they w a n t to pursue when they comulotc their i i i c h school work. I t gives them a chance to decide, whether 1itey are or aren't interested in this profession. The career day has been carried out at the local high :,rli'jol for some years now u n d e r tile direction of J. L. Gill, f o r m e r hi|;h school principal and now guidance director. P r a c t i c a l l y every profession of the city and county is j ('presented ly i n d i v i d u a l s in these businesses or profes- ,',MHI:;. The conferences are held i n . v a r ' n u s class rooms and li'.e r e p r e s e n t a t i v e s of the businesses and professions not only discuss t h e various aspccHs of the businesses but they a f f o r d t h e young people the o p p o r t u n i t y to ask questions and every e f f o r t is made to answer these questions. This year's career day is expected to be just as successful as those' held in the oast and there w i l l probably be more .··pcahcrs than at any time in the past. The loctti school has received many f i n e compliments on t h e program carried out here, besides h a v i n g m a n y Inquiries from other high schools which have expressed a desire to adopt and carry out a career day for their students. The event, of course, is only possible because the business and professional people are w i l l i n g to t a k e off s u f f i c i e n t t i m e to go to the high school and hold th c conferences and because t h e y are w i l l i n g to do t h e best job they can do in helping to give thc high school students an insight i n f o theii particular business or t h e i r profession.

I t remains to be .seen wlii-llior I l i i s is the bi'i;inniii|j, whetlier t l i e r e is a conviction and whetlier Die mystery .surroiiiidiiii; I h i s s l a y i n c is cleared up. H u t for over two. years now Ihc mystery lias continued lo prevail. Tlie fact is t h a i l i t t l e has been heard about thc case excepl Ihe comment in the press. It has been mentioned around election time but otherwise l i t t l e lias been done. If Die i n v e s t i g a t i o n wns continued and c e r t a i n discoveries m a d e these were never .sufficient to w a r r a n t nny action. It was necessary for Gov. Ed Mecliem, who'promi:;cd a' complete nnd t h o r o u g h i n v e s t i g a t i o n if elected governor, lo carry out t h a t promise. For three months two members of Ihe stale highway patrol had devoted luni; hours of check- inj; i n t o Iliis case. Yet t h a i cuse belonged to Dona Ana c o u n l y and we have law enforcement agencies here to conduct such investigations and lo continue probes and searches lo f i n d the slayer in all m u r d e r cases. I t is so easy lo become excited, to check and investigate and when l i t l l u develops to drop and sorla forget Hie matter. Yet f r e q u e n t l y these probes and I n v e s t i g a t i o n s must be con- t i n u e d from day to day, week lo week nnd month lo m o n t h . E v e n t u a l l y there is usually a break and a cnse which has appeared to mysterious suddenly is all cleared up. It, of course, is to our credit lo h a n d l e these tilings in our own c o u n t y and to yd these jobs done. We have some other cases which need f u r t h e r i n v e s t i g a t i n g . There is Ihc Pinncll m u r d e r , which has never been solved and t h e slayer never found. There is t h e slaying n o r t h of Las Cruces on H i g h w a y No. 115 where U e r l h n I3oyd was slain and her slayer or slayers have never been f o u n d . We have other murders and slayines in which no one has ever been charged or tried for murder. I t i: lo our credil when we solve? lliesc cases. II helps in hall others and helps lo set Ihc example for those who m i g h t a t t e m p t to commit a m u r d e r under t h e belief they would never be discovered. Wlicthcr J e r r y N i i / u n i is guilty as lie has now been charged is something for a jury to decide. He wns questioned before but never charged w i t h the slaying. We argued shortly a f t e r thc case broke there were more t h a n one who could tell the story. We have always fell there were many who could Icll more t h a n they hnvc told. We fell I h e i e were two police officers, one of whom is now dead, who never told all they knew about the case. The other, who is still on the police force, hns been questioned plenty d u r i n g the past three months. And he is still a member (if the police force. v There are others who have never told nil they know or knew aboul the case. , Hut (lie question arises us to why we did not handle Ihis ease, clear up thc m a t t e r anil continue our probes nnd Investigation);. Bill we didn't. And we haven't and aren't doing much on the other murders and slayings. We believe they can all be cleared up, bill it is going to take constant work nnd effort. Wo just can wish It done. . · Maybu the probing ami digging Inlo the Coogler case will result in more effort being mailc in the oilier slaylngs, all of \\jhich, lis long as they remain unsolved, are bliick marks un our county, , The growth of o\tr City hns been' Ki'cut despite ninny handicaps.
