Highlights and Sidelights From Your State Capitol JOB INTERVIEWS Monday By VERN SANFORD Texas Press Association COTTON ACREAGE TUSSLE —For the third straight year East Texas and West Texas cot ton farmers are at odds over acreage allotments. State and county allotments are to be announced by USD A before Dec. 14 when cotton farm ers will vote on whether they want a market quota program for 1958. West Texas farmers contend that their area has been penal ized. They say an undue portion of the state’s cotton acreage is allotted to the cotton-growing counties of east and central Tex as. One group of West Texans went to federal court last year to try to get the allotments chang ed. Opposing them is the Old Cot ton Belt Association which has announced it will fight new ef forts to wrest acreage from its area. SPEED LAW QUESTIONED —Governor Daniel has been re quested to ask the Legislature to re-write the automobile speed limit law. A recent opinion from the Court of Criminal Appeals called the law “vague and indefinite and therefore invalid.” Involved was a conviction for driving 90 miles an hour. If this law is too shaky for court tests, the Harris County district attorney told the gov ernor in effect, a new and strong er one should be written im mediately.

I have heard the gripe many times during my two years here at A&M about the speaking and meeting on the campus. This weekend, several of my friends from my hometown came to Aggieland for the first time to see the SMU-A&M game. Just before game time, they made a comment to my wife on the ex ceptional friendliness of all the Aggies. They stated that it seemed every Aggie they, met spoke to them and “many of the Aggies came up to us, shook our hand, and told us their • name.” This is one of the things that makes A&M great, and because of this, we should strive to keep it that way.
