One of the best ways to insure this interest is to have a good attendance for the games. One'of the best ways to have a good attendance for the games is to sell season tickets. We do not know how much thought has been given to the matter of getting ready for this season ticket sale and launching it this spring and completing it this fall. We do believe, however, that much could be accomplished. We don't know of a better lime to sell some tickets for the home games than during the inter-squad clash which is always held at the close of the spring practice. We are firmly convinced that there could be a splendid crowd present for this contest with proper publicity prior to the game and with the date set far enough in advance so that plans con he made to attend the game. We are told there is n splendid spirit on the part of the boys reporting for spring practice and the coaching staff. We would like to see some of this same fine spirit and enthusiasm displayed by the fans and the backers of. the Aggies. We feel confident that it can be done! , But we do feel that the launching of the season ticket sale now will not only result in sales but it w i l l avoid a conflict with the sale of high school season tickets this full. 'But the time for us to start arousing and stirring up that enthusiasm is now and maybe vie can and would continue on through until the actual playing season gels underway this fall. We believe with the altitude- and the spirit being showi at the college wu can and we will have a good football season and We can start building for the future! But going to lake enthusiasm and. .spirit, to do jus: that. And now is the time to start building that spirit. Three Are Arrested i As Drunken Drivers Three perrons paid fines or forfeited bonds on charges of. driving while intoxicated over the weekend, The first, following- an accident was George Beriavides, who was arrested at the Welcome Inn. following- an accident in which his pickup truck was involved .with n car .driven by Mrs. Gilbert Brown. The mishap' occurred at the corner of Las Cruces and Wain street. He paid a ?50 fine" and had his operator's .license revoked. Charles E, Campbell, Rt.-1, Box 107, La Mesa, arrested on the DWI charge, forfeited · $50 .bond and surrendered his license In police court. Carl L. "Beam, Fort, Bliss soldier, pleaded guilty to the DWJ charges and posted a $50 fine in police court. His Alabama .operator's license was returned'to his native stale 1 for cancellation; Do We Save $19 Billion? 11 begins lo appear that the altitude of India nnd more particularly of Its Prime Minister is going to save the American taxpayer some IB billion dollars. It begins to appear there will be no 19 billion dollars worth of food stuff bought and shipped to India. Secretary Dean Achcson had about sold congress on the Idea that the people of India were starvjng and they needed help, lie wnnlod our help to be an outright gill to India despite their attitude in the United Nations and their failure to go along with America. But congress was not in favor of any such proposal. They wanted some guarantee of payment or something in return for feeding the people of India. They were pretty well set on this idea. And then the Prime Minister of India declared they would not accept nny gifts from Ajnurica. w i t h ' n n y strings attached. He even admitted t h a t a famine did not exist and in the final analysis the situation wasn't much changed in his country from normal times when there are those who are-going hungry there. There h«R always been hungry people in India. There doutbless will be to the end of time. Hut the point is that the Prime Minister admitted they did not have to have -the help.- And he was declaring |hnl we could not put any strings on what we let them have. In oilier words lie not only wanted to tell us what we would give them but the conditions on which we would give it. Personally we are opposed lo some of these so-called programs which have cost the American people and American taxpayers billions of dollars every year. As someone recently said "we have been feeding India and the Chinese since 1 can remember". Today we are engaged in a war with the Chinese--the same people we have saved not once but many times from famines. And we presume thai If wo had handed out sufficient 19. billion dollar deals lo India often enough we could look forward to a war with 'them, ' We can bo juiit as sympathetic with the starving people ot this world as Hie next person. But we are always more sympathetic with those at home wlio go hungry and we do have those here who are nol faring so well- today on the inflated prices they must pny for" foods. We expect if the trull were known there- arc a good many Americans who are nol getting all of the various calories which they need to prop* crly sustain them during the day. There are children In America who go hundry, too. But we are firmly convinced that In the fulure if we are to help those who suffer famines and who arc starving tlia we dictate the terms on which the help is given. We aix convinced that wo should make il slrlctly'a business proposi .lion--cither the goods be sold on credit and the country pay for it in-money or in some other manner. And since the Prime Minister of India says they will no accept any glfls from us with any strings attached, we ar convinced the situation is far from desperate. If it were n bad as lie once described it then he would be Interested ii securing .the help and wouldn't be troubled any about th strings attached. 11 appears lo us !t Is a typical deal lo again work Amer. lea lo assume the responsibility which is the rcsponsibllll, of the government of India. We favor aiding and'helping those who need help strict ly on a business basli but we honestly believe it Is abou time to discontinue/idle world wide Wl'A program whic we have had in operation ever since we ended It In our ow nation, · , . ; ; Most of us arc far more dependent on other people'-the we realize and. it Is well now and voice our appro elation In !hcm, : . .. ; ' REX ALLEN surety tour sponsored by the New Mexico Highway Patrol.

Kettilim Allies . .Marshall said the course In; hud outlined would "retain our allies, bring them to more satisfactorily reactions before the United Nations us their confidence in our leadership in "this delicate matter is increased, und generally _ improve the situation." Earlier, Marshall had testified that .United Nations troops in Korea are barred from approaching w i t h i n . 15 miles of Hhc Russian border. · He. also said that MacArthur hud ordered io confine his operations lo Korea "and under no circumstances to carry out operations beyond the border of Korea into (Chinese) Manchuria. Mr.cArUiiir Complains ' Mac Art liur in the witness chair bst week complained he was ncv- L-V allowed to bomb a North Ko- ror.n supply center because of its ! ?ro:;imily lo the Russian 1 border.: ; TirshtiH said MacArthur was "c::r.tionetl against having units within, J 'think it was, about 15 miles of the border in Northeast Korea where It touched the perimeter of Siberia, the Soviet government." The restrictions did not apply to operations by the Navy on the water along the coast of Korca t but .those were restricted, in other words, forbidden, in relation to the. Manchurian coast, the China coast and most specifically the northeastern tip of Korea in close proximity to the Soviet border." Itiissdl ucHtlons Senator Russell (D-Ga.),. chairman of the joint committee, asked whether the restrictions originated with the joint chiefs of staff or with the United Nations. . Marshall said . the restrictions grew out of the views of the joint chteft of staff and were discussed in the National Security Council. He said those taking part in the discussions as members of the council were President Trumun, Vice-president Earkoley, Secretary of State Achcson, W. Stuart Symington, then chairman of the National Security Resources board and himself as Secretary of Defense.
