Scogjjin, Jr., declared here recently t h a t he always suspended the driver's license of those who arc convicted in his court of d r u n k e n driving. This, he explained, is mandatory and is not at the discretion of the eonrl. If there are those iud(;es who do not revoke or suspend the driver's license of those conviled of d r u n k e n d r i v i n g then they are not following the law, Judge Scoiif;ins pointed out. The Sun-News recently editorially commented on the fact there are instances being reported by law enforcement officers where the license of those convicted of d r u n k e n d r i v i n g are not being revoked. Most a!- these cases come before the city court. The fact also was pointed out t h a t in some instances charges brought have been changed from d r u n k e n d r i v i n g to reckless d r i v i n g . Kinc.s can be assessed for reckless d r i v i n g and these cases can he tried before justice of the peace. Those charged w i t h d r u n k e n d r i v i n g can be tried before the city judges or before district judges. Such cases tried before justice of the peace can only result in the defendants being bound over for trial before the d i s t r i c t court. Need Aggie Boosters Tin: Aggie Quarterback club which functioned here for a [;ood many years and did a good job of providing scholar- sln'ps for Aggie? players and helping to boost the Aggie football stjUad, now needs to swing back into action. Next fall when Ihe Aggies start their fall practice grind t h e y , will have not only an outstanding coaching staff but the largest coaching s t a f f they have ever had. Three new faces will be directing the activities of the Aggies--two of Ihrse former members of the Texas Western learns which have so soundly trounced the Aggie teams on various occasions. These are Kay (Sugar) ICvans, former Mines star, mid "Pug" Gabrel. The new head coach will he Joe Coleman, former T. C. U. o u t s t a n d i n g football star and more recently producer of outstanding high school squads at Odessa, Texas, hjgh school. Jim Patton, who was here last year will continue in his present capacity w i t h the squad. Most Aggie fans know mid realize that we are not in a position to go out and attract outstanding high school grid stars. We can not offer these boys what they can receive from other schools able to raise all the way from a few thousand dollars to many thousands of dollars. Hut we can do a belter job with work and effort of at- t r a c t i n g more of our local boys and our state hoys. And we know and everyne else knows that there is many a student who never played h'gh school football but with the proper coaching can develop into a good grid player. The opportunity is ours as a city and n community to arouse more interest and more enthusiasm. The new coaching staff is going to need plenty of help to do the job we all want to see done. There are going to need help in securing' the boys and they are going to need help in the arousing of enthusiasm, the spirit and the interest. They are going to need help in the sale of season tickets and in the increasing of the attendance at the grid games here. - .There is deliniiely a need for better relationships between the school, Ihe a t h l e t i c department and the public. Wo have the football slditim; we have a brand new coaching staff; and we need to join hands to start building a great Aggie football team. ·APPLES OF.'DISCORD.

Mail of us are inclined to believe the New Mexico Congressman is ahsolutely right. And mast ni us art- ea|er am] anxious to see the day and Ihe time when Americans will become smart enonpji to wrap Knyhsh diplomats around their (inner instead of always IKMIIK Ihe one who is wrapped around the finger of the Kn};lishman. There is nu question'but w h a t Ihe Uritish and the Americans have been f l i u n d s for a hm(( time. They have .fought many, battles together. There is great admiration in America for the British but t h a t does not metin the Americans want to fight the battlus of tin' British or to permit them lo dictate how these battles are lo be fought. It is only n a t u r a l for the British to be more concerned about defcniiiiij; Europe t h a n they arc the haltin;; of the aR- Ijressors in Korea--Europe is closer to them. Bill we are the. ones who should be smart enough lo reali/e this nnd our position should be one of doinrj the t h i n g which is more value to America and lo American's ralher t h a n for the best interest uf the British. We should give a though or two to tho Americans in Korea--and don't forget it is our troops which arc doing the fif!htin|{ in Korea. No one nation has but u handful of men compared to whal we have.
