While wondering how Ed could get a driver's license at age 14 since he was not a farm boy, I also wonder how things changed so much from my day to his in such a short time.

Hardly anyone had a car when I was in high school. Zack Cartwright was one and I think one other.

Even in college, cars were scarce for the students in those days.

I wonder if Ed is making all this up and getting Milby Karla to help him.

I wonder about such things. I don't know if Frank McKinney (who did have a car at Sam Houston) and Jim Pell do or not.

Actually, I think 14 was the legal age to get a driver's license because all of us in the 9th grade at Webster High School (we moved to the CCHS new building the next year) took driver's ed. And I remember going right over to the DPS office and taking my driver's test. Dub Kelly was our driver's ed teacher and I am sure we gave him plenty of scary moments.

There were a number of people who drove to CCHS, probably not as many as I think, however. I do remember the Herbeck brothers and their blue and white '55 Ford v-8 station wagon on which they had put dual glass pack mufflers. Pretty cool when they would "rack them off" in the parking lot when they arrived or left.

At Baylor, not many had cars but a lot more than at CCHS. The '59 Ford convertible I had during my freshman year was the envy of many, for sure, and a lot of the guys wanted to borrow it all the time for dates. But, I would not let them due to insurance problems. Did not win many friends but did save my car probably in the long run.

It would be great if some more of the Wildcat faithful would join in this post and let us know what they drove around in in the days of yore.

My Photo

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
