The judgment is reversed and the cause remanded.

*53 On Motion for Rehearing

BELCHER, Commissioner.

By affidavit filed in this court the state says that a clerical error was made in the entry of the judgment in the minutes of the trial court, and by such affidavit the state seeks to supply the data to correct the error. Such an error must be corrected in the trial court.

Until this appeal has become final, the trial court is without authority to correct the minutes of the court which form a part of the record on appeal. Art. 828, Vernon's Annotated Code of Criminal Procedure. Palacio v. State, Tex.Cr.App., 296 S.W.2d 550.

The motion for rehearing is overruled.

Opinion approved by the Court.
