I was rushed to the hospital in Houston and my par ents arrived soon afterward. From that time on Mom was never much farther away than she could hear me call, and for a long time that was barely across the room. She slept folded up in a chair or on the floor— if she slept at all—in the room with me. I don’t think she ever saw a bed except mine for almost 18 months. She was by far the best nurse I had. Finally, when I was able to go home, she and Dad took care of me. “A little over two years after my accident I got a chance to start back to school at Tarleton State College. I was in a wheel chair and up until that time there was some doubt whether or not I could carry six semester hours. The only way I had to go was for Mom to carry me, so we drove 60 miles three days a week. For awhile, we were both ex hausted but little by little it be came easier. “Mom carried me to school for three semesters and took all my notes for me. Finally, in the fall of 1959, I decided that I was in good enough health to try to Come back to A&M. Again, the only way I could come was for Mom to come with me. “Then, on the day before Thanksgiving, my Dad was com ing to the Bonfire and football fame and was almost killed in an automobile accident. Mom almost cracked up. ‘But whatever she is made of just bends, not breaks. “While Dad was so bad we stayed at home to be near him. I was out of school from Thanks giving until Jan. 4. Dad was still in poor condition but we came back and finished the semester. It looked almost impossible for me to return the second semester, because Dad was still in the hos pital and needed a lot of atten tion. But both of them would have it no other way, so I came back to school. We went home every weekend and when Dad was able to get out of the hospital he came down here with us. Mom’s hands were just about full. Dad improved very rapidly and was able to go back to teaching school April 2. He went more on sheer will power than anything else. “At last, after three years of waiting, my fiancee—who is just as wonderful as Mom and on whom we leaned very heavily during our difficulties—and I were able to get married. This was April 9, this year. Now Mom is where she should be, home with Dad and getting a very well- deserved rest. “I believe that you will agree with me that Mom certainly de serves the honor and nothing would please me more than to see her receive it. It would serve as a small token of appreciation from myself for the hardships that she has undergone for me. Sincerely, Bill Curry, ’59” Wildlife Exhibit Saturday Features Snake Milking The technique of milking venom from poisonous snakes will be one of the main attractions in the De partment of Wildlife Management exhibit during Parents Day ac tivities Saturday.

Humphrey, Kennedy Meet On TV Debate; No Sparks By The Associated Press Sens. Hubert II. Humphrey (D.- Minn.) arid'John F. Kennedy (D.- Mass.) met head-on in a television debate last Wedrteiday night at Charleston, : W. Va. The ,two rivals... for. the Demo cratic presidential nomination pro duced ho 'sparks, ho fireworks. The tone was mild apd unbitter. Humphrey did take issue with a constant Kennedy refrain—that Humphrey has - no chance to be nominated and a vote for him in West Virginia’s May 10 primary is wasted. Asked if he thought he had a chance, Humphrey said: “I most surely do.” He added “No Democrat has this nomination tied up. If you have 200 convention votes you’re just as much alive politically as the man with 500 votes.” The debate was televised over a state network, but was seen in some out-of-state cities. Vice President Richard M. Nixon, unopposed for the Republican presidential nomination, had kind Albany Rockefeller repeated that words in New York Wednesday for the man who bowed out of the rage against him — Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. Vs i-Sj’ >" Nixon told a news canference Rockefeller has ‘tremendous sup port throughout the country for national office among the Republi cans.” But he begged off on any direct expression that he wants Rockefeller for his running mate and put it up to the governor. In he won’t accept, the second place spot. \ There have been reports that Nixon would like' to have Rocke feller on the ticket. Nixon’s state ment Wednesday was viewed in some quarters as an attempt to make sure no one would put the blame at his door if Rockefeller continued adamant about refusing the vice presidential nomination.
