a few words I want to tell you.
“I haven’t got a wife—yet. But
I intend to have one some day. And
I want that day to arrive with me
all in one piece. So, buddy, I’d
appreciate it if you wouldn’t pass
me on hills—YOU are endangering

got a big powerful car like your’s.
Mine’s old, it won’t go too fast,
and it rattles pretty had. But T

buddy, I’d appreciate it if you
wouldn’t run up so close to me
when you’re driving—-YOU are en
dangering MY car.
“You must have a nice job to
own a big car like that. Well, I’m
still in college and don’t have a
job lined up yet. But I will, and
I hope that eventually I’ll be able
to afford some of the things you

“Now, mister, I know I’ve sound

that. Talking to you made me re

to endanger myself—and YOU.

At A&M Since 1891
A fter noon. Night Talks
Open To General Public
The world’s problems probably won’t be solved as the
dawn breaks tomorrow over another strife-ridden day, but
then A&M’s first Student Conference on National Affairs
will have completed only its first day of actual existence.
Seriously, though, no one expects this conference of the
top students in the Southwest, plus some of the top men in
international affairs, to come up with the answer to what’s
wrong with our world. But the participants do expect to
get a clearer understanding of the road down which the
United States must travel if our country is to survive the
threats to peace in our contemporary world.
Things started crackling today as the more than 100
♦'delegates from 47 colleges
and universities officially reg
istered for the conference.
Topping the agenda this af
ternoon is a 3 p.m. speech by
Lamar Fleming Jr., chairman of
the Board of Anderson, Clayton &
Co., in the ballroom of the Memo
rial Student Center. This talk,
which is open to the public and
presented by Great Issues and
SCONA, will follow the welcome
to delegates and faculty by A&M
president, Dr. David H. Morgan.
A smorgasboj’d will be held for
conferees tonight at 6 in the ball
room. At 8 the second keynote
address will be given by George
C. McGhee, former Assistant Sec
retary of State. This address is
also open to the public. A reception
will be held following both this
