RY. Cmh frn (Jne Up; 30 Can Be Handled It's 'Hurry Up And Wait' To Take Driving License Tests J5y ROSALIE ,MYEKS Sun Staff Writer A crackdown on Houston traffic law violators has far-reaching effects. ll even scares the living daylights out of everyone in the Baytown area who is driving without a Texas driver's license. Every Friday nnd Saturday, the scared ones line lip down at the court house on South Main and stand in line, Availing to apply for a driver's license. They come at 5 a.m.. and the determination to "keep my place in line" hasn't been so strong: since the days of queueing- up for food and gasoline ration stamps. As many as 150 to 200 are there by the time the driver's license examiners arrive at & a.m. Most of them know they stand only a five-to-ono chance of getting a license for the two examiners, working all day long without a break, can qualify only 30 persons each per day for driver's licenses. They give written tests at. 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., and driving tests immediately after the written tests. K:;:<miner Gerald Stone is working: alone this week while Examiner Gene Fagala is on vacation so only fiO of the -(00 applicants this week will Ret the driving- tests immediately after the written tests. Stone said many of the applicants for licenses are students who have restricted licenses and arc applying to have the restrictions removed. Some are people who live out-of-town and believe that a license can be obtained easier ami quicker by coming: to Bnytown. But a reporter's interview with some of the applicants Friday indicated that most of the people have been shaken up by the crackdown of police and the courts on unlicensed drivers. Newcomers around Bnytown think the waiting line at the court house is mighty long- each Friday and Saturday and do n lot of fuming- about it, but— They should have been here a few years ago when the county, the state and the city teamed up in a drive on unlicensed drivers and set up blockad«»— booby traps, they were called—on the roads imrt highways around East Harris county and stopped every driver to chock his license. Of course, the courts ruled that this was an tin- constitutional method of enforcing the license law, but. it hnd its effect nt the time. Examiner Joe Berry thought a mob was storming the jail when he arrived one "license clay" and saw 750 men. women and teen-agers swarming in and around the court house waiting for him. Thank You, Mrs. Smith- An open letter to The Baytown Sun, School Supt. George H. Gentry and the Baytown School Board of trustees: "We wish to express our thanks to your newspaper for your courtesy toward our community in your truthful, unbiased and first-hand accounting of our events. "Especially in our present issue — our high school proposal — do we thank The Sun reporters who came to see and hear for themselves and to so honestly report the actual happenings. "To Mr. Gentry and the trustees of Robert E. Lee high school, we offer our deepest appreciation for your .assuming in past years the responsibility of finishing our young people's high school education when our community was unable (too poor) to do so. "You are men of honor and honesty, and there will always be a warm spot in our hearts toward you. "But we've outgrown the community poverty now. not only materially but in thoughts and deeds, and are now ready to assume this responsibility which is rightfully ours. "You'd think the people here who are pledging heavily to the building and keeping of the many wonderful churches would be afraid of this ,.ne\v venture of building a. high school, but the marvelous thing is that they are the supporters and stalwart strength behind it. "They know the miser who sits and starves, counting his money, is not a happy or constructive man. But the one who is ready-to undertake the impossible, even to giving his mite, which is 'his all, is the man who is a doer, not a dreamer. "With figures you can destroy a vision. But with facts, faith and ultimate effort, we can achieve splendid things — not only in building homes, churches, schools and communities, but in sustaining our nation in its highest precepts. "So our thanks and highest respect to all of you." Most Sincerely, Mrs. Lanis Smith Channelview Ike Believed About Ready To Talk About 2nd Term GE'ITVSBUP.C. Pa.
