AUSTIN—The Daily Texan, student publication at the
University of Texas was ordered to withhold from yester
day’s publication an editorial on political consequences of the
veto of the Natural Gas Harris Bill.
The editorial was ordered withheld by Harrell Lee, ed
itorial director of Texas Student Publications, and Dr. De-
Witt Reddick, acting director of the School of Journalism.
Yesterday’s development was the latest in a growing
controversy between Willie Morris, student editor, and the
University Board of Regents over Morris’ presentation of
editorial views. Morris has accused the regents of trying to
A section of the editorial page was left blank.
Dr. Reddick said yesterday that the editorial “was a
continuation of a practice that the Board of Student Publi
cations in its policies had said should not be followed. It was
a presentation of sweeping statements that were not sub
stantiated by a basis of fact and a continuation of one par
ticular point of view the Texan has been following without
the presentation of any diverse points of view.”
In the editorial Morris wrote that by the veto of the
Harris bill the President “served the best interest of the

Being Picked Up
City authorities are now picking
up unlicensed dogs found in the
city limits, according to Ran Bos
well, city managei\
“We have picked up 21 dogs
since last Friday,” Boswell said.
“We keep a dog for 48 hours be-
fox-e we destroy it.”
Licenses have been issued to 215
dogs so far, a drop from 239 at
this time last year, Boswell added.
“Anyone wishing to reclaim a
dog ox- get one may do so by pay
ing the city dog tax at the City
Hall, and having him vaccinated.
If you’re like most Americans, you’re
earning more now than ever before. But
if you’re like a lot of us, you’re having a
tough time trying to hang on to this
extra money. What comes easy—seems to
go just as easily. Spending a little too
freely and going a little too far into debt
may be tempting, but it certainly isn’t
wise. Actually, now is the best oppor
tunity you’ll ever have save.
What most of us need is a simple, sys
tematic savings plan—one that will work
automatically and pay off with guaranteed
results. Your Government has provided
just such a plan. And over 40 million
Americans are already cashing in on it.
'Why don’t you join them? Sign up for U. S.
Series E Savings Bonds on the Payroll Savings
Plan where you work. Or buy Bonds reg
ularly where you bank. As little as $18.75 a
month invested in Savings Bonds will give you
a cash backlog of $1,182.60 in just 5 years—
$2,456.70 in 9 years and 8 months.
There are three good reasons why U. S.
Savings Bonds should be part of every
investment program. They're safe—your
principal is never subject to market
fluctuation. They're sure—Bonds pay an
average of 3% per year, compounded
semiannually when held to maturity.
They're liquid—you can always cash them,
if you have to, after you’ve held them
for 2 months.
Treasury Secretary Humphrey recently
said, “The continued success of our econ
omy depends not only upon the Govern
ment, but upon the efforts of all the
people trying to do a little more for them
selves and their loved ones. It is the sum
total of all these individual efforts that
makes our system superior to anything
known in this world before.”
Let’s apply his words to our private
affairs. And the best thing that you can do
for your loved ones is to buy wisely—save
sensibly—and preserve our American pros-;
perity for them!

The Aggie Players are moving
into final x-ehearsals of “Family
Portrait”, a px-e-Easter play to be
presented March 23, through 27 in
co-ordination with the College Sta

Costuming and distribution of tick

cil of Chui*ch Women, headed by
Mis. J. B. Baty.
“The play is not an attempt to
tell the entire Easter story,” Di-
x-ector C. K. Esten said. “It relates
the feelings of Christ’s family and
neighboi-s towax-ds his ministry.
•The story is timeless.”
For these reasons the costuming
will not be dated but will consist
of present day appai - el. The de

of the charactex-s.
