After a raid onj the Hardin College campus by fifteen paint-smearing students of North Texas State College, the Hardin student council made a noble move.

This, “man’s world” is fast slipping away from the American scene. Even in Texas where man’s pioneer customs still prevail, women are making inroads in the customs of the past that havp delegated certain responsibilities ; to the menfolk. Serving on juries has always be^n a man’s job in Texas.; Next month voters ' will have the choice of giving women the privilege of jury’ duty. -iThis election, we feci, is long overdue. , Women can be capable jurors. Thirty- Uivo states in this country permit! women to serve on juries. Lawyers often Credit women with better judgement than men, / especially when a woman is involved in the. not only small ones men fi*om jury serv- barring a Ne- Restriction of wo ice is as discriminatory’ as gro from the jury’ box. Some Women, it is admitted, can be easily swayed by the eloquence of attor neys, or the handsome appearance of wit nesses. But woman s judgement is usally as sound and coldly logical as man’s. This proposed amendment would add another patch to thol alreacy over-patched Texas constitution. However, only by pas sage of the amendm?nt Cari jury duty and privilege be extended to brjir Texas wbmen •—a, compliment anc they deserve. nj I'il-h' y ;|i - H ■]'4- responsibility that r \ The Bdttalio \ "Soldier, Si ataman, knightly Gentkviari Lawrence Sullivan Ross, Founder df Aggie Tradition* ; .]i The Battalion, official mswapupor of the As ( ity of College Station, Texu^, is published fi turul and Mechanical Colt as a week und eireulaled e Tho Associated Pr J .U-. u W I—i- bss is entitled cxclusivelj’ e to the use foe vcpublication of therwise credited in the paper and local news of s^wntabi Credited to it or not O-..—... —- .—. ..v- 'I herein.
