Henry Williams w-ill serve as president; James Stewart, vice- president; D. B. Washington, sec retary; Riley Woods, treasurer; and Phillip Steen, chaplain. Walter Steen is chairman of the board of directors, whose members include the Rev. L. W. Flowers, Sam Pearce, W. A. Tarrow, Sam Kear ney, James Stewart Jr., Tommy Preston, Effie Hollie and A. C. Clark. W. A. Tarrow, principal of Lin coln School, and a member of the board of directors, stressed that the newly formed organization had no connection with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. “We merely want to encourage the people in our sections of the community to take pride in their surroundings and help them im prove their living conditions,” Tat .• row said. “Most of our home-owners want to be proud of their surroundings, and we plan to give them an oppor tunity to help themselves.” Speed Limits Made To Save Your Life 55, treasurer, 1954-55; Newman Club, 1951-55; Wrestling Club, 1952-53; English Majors Club, 1952-53; Saddle and Sirloin Club, 1954-56; Aggie Players, 1955-56; 12th Man Bowl Committee, 1955; Housemaster, 1955-56. (See WHO’S WHO, Page 8) Christmas recess begins Satur day at noon. You are a little late getting away from the campus, and are in a hurry to get home and start enjoying your 16 glorious days of vacation. It is more than a hundred miles home, and you think you have to be there two hours after you leave the campus. You’re doing fine, almost home and in fifteen minutes less than record time. In fact you are over joyed by your new record and are going so fast that you don’t see that car in front of you in time to stop. Crash! Now you can spend the rest of your 16 days in a hospital. If you’re lucky you’ll be able to come back to class Jan. 3. If you’re not your parents may be attending your funeral. Either way you lose, and if you had just taken your time it could have been avoided. Remember when you start home, don’t drive over the speed limit. One in every five urban accidents is caused by excessive speed, and more than 38 per cent of traffic fatalities in rural areas were need lessly caused because someone was driving too fast. When you start back after the holidays, leave home early enough so you won’t have to drive fast. The administration has added an extra day to the vacation so you will have plenty of time to get back to school without setting any speed records. io; CONWAY & CO. N.
