There were many witty entries, but Museum staff voted Robert’s caption our favorite. We can’t resist sharing a few of the other great submissions that made choosing one winner tough:
Jimmy showed the agents how to properly cock his hat...eliminating any need for eye or ear protection... - Eugene S.

The Texas Rangers and Texas Highway Patrol had just merged into a single department headed by an independent Public Safety Commission. This photo shows some of the first recruits to train under the Department of Public Safety.
