The Week in Texas OGovernor Price Daniel prom ised Rev. Paul Stephens of Baytown to investigate enforcement of liquor laws in dry areas after a series in the Houston Post charged widespread bootlegging operations. OOne result of recently im , posed higher scholastic requirements at the University of Texas apparently is that a much higher percentage of students are not making the grade. Records show one out of four students are on “scholastic probation” and can be kicked out of school if they don’t post higher marks this semester. OThe explosive gangland warfare in the Fort Worth area continued when a wall was blasted out of the Thunderbird Club, a place where big names of the underworld once gathered. Mrs. Bettye Coffman, operator of the establishment, said she was puzzled by the blast. “I love everybody. I have no idea why anybody would do this to me.” OEx-governor Allan \\ Shivers was added to the Capital National Bank’s Board of Directors. 0 More than 100 suspected nar cotics peddlers and addicts were arrested as city, county, state and federal officers con ducted raids in Austin, San An tonio, Odessa, and Waco. Biggest catch was in San Antonio, where $250,000 worth of heroin and $15, 000 cash were seized. Giving Europe \\ more oil to burn and Texas legislators more money to spend, the Texas Railroad Commission increased daily oil production allowables for March by 210,910 barrels per day, making the total daily allowable 3,733,054 barrels. OAn Oklahoma couple’s ef forts to sell Fort Worth women a “new method” guaranteed to develop their bustline measurements with vitamins and barbells of a type allegedly used by Jane Mansfield were halted by police when the husband was accused of practicing medicine without a license. 0 Rep. Sam Bass, Freeport, and George Gaston Jr., publisher of the Brazosport Facts and Citi zen-Light, were summoned before a Brazos County grand jury after they were quoted as telling the House jurisprudence committee That law enforcement conditions in Brazoria were “rotten to the core.” Both later denied they were referring to Brazoria county or singling out county officials for 0 Yale University officials ac quired the Thomas W. Streeter collection and immediately claimed to have the greatest group of Texas historical documents in existencegreater even than any in Texas. Among prized items is a letter written by Jim Bowie to a Mexican officer a few days before the fall of the Alamo. Another is a proof copy of the 1823 proclamation by Stephen F. Austin to the residents of the Austin settlement. 0 Two Dallas brothers, one of whom was formerly a typewriter mechanic for the Internal Revenue Service, were sentenced to 13 months in prison for filing fraudulent returns for client while posing as income tax experts. OThe Court of Criminal Ap peals heard arguments on the case in which ex-pOlitical boss George Parr was fined $1500 for threatening a political rally. Parr’s attorney, Percy Foreman, argued his client never said “I’m going to kill Thomas Molina ….. He only said he wanted to, and the legislature has never seen fit to make it a crime to say you want to kill someone.” District Attorney Sam Burris argued … “when a man storms into the courthouse carrying a loaded carbine, cussing and hollering, ‘Where is Thomas Molina’ … that pretty well establishes intent.” The court took the case under advisement. OMoney may be tight but Houston bank records show that the dollar amount of loans issued last month eras ten percent higher than ‘those of January, 1956. OA Profanity Anonymous Club, aimed at breaking members from using cuss words, has been organized at Mexia and more than 400 members have signed up. I OLongtime Austin bawdy house operator Peggy Stephenson Bryant had a decidedly unprofitable week. First treasury department agents filed a $7,895 income tax lien against Peggy and her former husband, Dudley. Then two armed men robbed her establishment of $6,100. OCompletely reversing an ear lier position, t h e Harris County Medical S o c i e t y announced a six-point program intended to provide all county residents an opportunity for immunization against polio within the next 45 days. Former Land Commissioner Bascom Giles, who now has accumulated enough prison time to ask for parole under his sixyear term, said he would not do anything to get an early release although he thinks he should be let out. His case will come up for review in April. 0 The U.S. Department of Ag riculture reported that the values of livestock in Texas dropped more than $100 million during 1956 as a result of the drouth. Total value of .livestock and poultry was placed at $622 million.
