to be adopted.
In the case at issue, the mother,
a widow, gave written permission
for her two children to be adopted.
Two months later, having remar-

OH, ON THE HIGHWAYS? — On
the heels of a U. S. Supreme Court
decision that Texas owns its tide-
lands 10% miles out comes a
ruling that the state also owns the
right-of-way along public roads.
Atty. Gen. Wiil Wilson ruled
tliat the state, not the county,
owns the road right-of-way and
that the counties cannot lease the
land for mineral development.
Whether the state should exer-
cise its right and lease right-of-
way land for oii and gas explorn-
tion probably wili not be decided
until the Legislature sets a policy,
involved is some 1.200.000 acres of
land on 228,000 miles of public
roads, some of it across areas
with oil-bearing strata.
RKAO!N(i, RITINU AM) OR!V
!N(< — State Board of Kducation
took a jaundiced view of a pro-
posai of state-supported driver
education in public schools. Pica
for driver education, one of the
main planks in Governor Daniel's
program for increased traffic
safety, was presented by Brad
Smith, director of the governor's
Highway Safety Commission.
"Driver education in the schools
is the only way to reduce the flow
of uneducated (trivets into the
stream of traffic," Smith declared.
A statewide driver training pro-
gram has be<en the goal of tha
huge Texas Federation of Women's
Clubs for some years.
Board members said they felt
the matter did not properly belong
in a school curriculum. They de-
clined to make a recommendation
to the Legislature.
!,H(.AL TMST PROHAMLK—Board
of Education decided to consider
again in September the dilemma,
of schooi districts which stand to
lose their state aid money under
terms of a 1957 law governing
Under this law, districts which
integrate without iapprovai in a
loc; l election automatically lose
Dallas and Houston schools are
under federal court order to in-
tegrate this fall. Houtson voters
turned down integraioti. Dallas'
election is set for Aug. 6.
State Education Commissioner
J. W. Hdgar said he had written
Houston and Dallas school author-
ities telling them their state aid
would be cut off if they integrated
without a voter mandate.
Board discussed seeking an at-
tornty general's opinion on the,
problem, probably in September
after the Dallas election.
