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.
In a well-worded telegram to officials
of NTSC, the president and ten members
of the council Requested that leniency be

. 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

Dallas and all of North Texas are pleased to learn that we wfll
