And Justly so. Is there .iny reason under the sun why a man should he permitted ,o drink more liquor than he can control, step into n high-powered automobile, drive recklessly down our highways, injuring and killing people? There is none. It is regrettable that in many lilies ;ind counties throughout our nation enforcement officers and ev- (ii courts have been somewhat reluctant to enforce laws to protect citizens of their communities from these drunken drivers. Licenses of drunken drivers should be revoked. No man who lias been convicted of drunken driving should be permitted to drive an automobile. The use of our highways is a privilege. It should be considered so and not nbused. FRANCO CLOSES IN—General Franco, whose nrmy is victorious on all .sectors in Spain, is shown here with some of his 800 odd generals.
