A&M that fall, but they all knew Holik’s and not Victor s. “I sat there in my little shop and watched boys walking by with a pair of shoes or two pair of boots, going to Holik’s,” he says, describing his first day of business. “All that money walking by. So I got outside and started hollering ‘come on in here. I need your money!’ Within two to three days I was making two to three dollars a day,” he said, proudly. Those first customers, especially members of A&M’s Corps of Cadets, kept coming to Victor and brought their friends. In 1970 he moved his shop across the street, to his store at 201 College Main. Business got bet ter. He started selling boots, selling more than he was repairing. Last year he opened his second store, on Texas Avenue, selling Just Boots. This year he plans to branch out, going back into the restaurant busi ness. By midsummer he hopes to have the world’s first “Senor Vic tor’s” fried chicken shop alongside his shop on College Main. Prosperity has its eosts. His two stores, business trips and plans for his restaurant take more of his time. The work doesn’t bother him, though. “I get my kicks from working, ” he says with a grin. “My only sport is my cash register. I work eight days a week.” He does admit to “slowing down” to working only 16 hours a day in stead of the 20 he worked when he first came here. He thinks most people relax too much.

The tone in his voice leaves no doubt that he means it. But he does feel he’s neglecting his customers, especially A&M stu dents, by being away from his little repair shop more. “Sometimes, since I’ve become more successful, I miss the close as sociation with those boys. Many would ask me about things they should’ve asked their parents. But I’d try to give them advice, some times have lunch with them. Then a sad look comes into his eyes and he recalls a time he wasn’t close enough. “One day in 1969 a boy came in very depressed. But I was very busy that day and didn’t have time to talk to him. The next day news came around to me that he’d hanged him self.” He blames most parents for ne glecting their kids, not guiding them enough or being close enough to them. He’s determined that won’t happen with his two sons, now 17 and 15. They sell boots for him when they’re not in school. He leaves no doubt about their futures, either. “In my home I set rules that are not questioned,” he says simply- He says the proudest day of his life came last April when he became a U S. citizen. He waited 15 years longer than he had to for that day. Why? “All the years I was waiting, I didn t feel I was yet good enough to become a citizen,” he says slowly and carefully. “I didn’t want to be a liability to this country. I wanted to be an asset.” As a businessman, he has a special goal. I think there are not enough mil lionaires in Bryan-College Station. I want to add one more.” executive session today to act on the confirmation. The suit filed against Briscoe by Frances Farenthold contended the governor illegally raised campaign funds.
