Since July 1, 1956, payment* to the highway fund have been at the rate of 1 cent per gallon. In addition, there has been a tax on tire* and other equipment Objections to the government'* plan to raise the ante have been loud and quick. They have come from all directions, including auto manufacturers, farmers, bus oper' ators, the ofl Industry and car fleet owners. Charges of unwarranted diversion of receipts from the highway trust fund have been lodged, also, by the Highway Users Conference, representing trucking organizations. It claims that 1305 million of money belonging to the road program has been taken out and used for other purposes, although It had been specifically earmarked.

He that hath many Irons la the fire, some of them will cool. A reader who hails from them thar hills, called to correct MS concerning the Monday item about the preacher who mistakenly went to nearby New Cumberland the other night to deliver an address, only to discover he was in the wrong town. "He undoubtedly was supposed to have gone to New Cumberland, W. Va., instead of this county's New Cumberland," the reader explained. "There is no Cumberland in that state but there is a New Cumberland. And it's a short ride from Steubenville, where the man got off the train," Our apology to New Cumberland, W. Va. Quote. A man should never be •shamed to own be his been wrong, which I* bat saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday . . . Alexander Pope. We were surprised when yesterday morning's mail contained a letter from Mrs, Rosamond Christenbery of 400 Fountain Ave., Fountain City, Tenn. It bore a Knoxville postmark. Inside was a clipping of Dr. George Crane's column of last Saturday in which yours truly was mentioned. A small card said: "Thought you would like the clipping, most folks appreciate kindness." That was only part of the surprise. There also was a clipping of a story about Mrs. Christenbery which is interesting enough to pass along, in part. H seems that she is the wife of a physician and for 40 years she has been reading papers, clipping items about people and sending same to them just out of courtesy. It isn't a gimmick and there's no charge or request for payment. She just does it out of the goodness of her heart. Time and again Mrs. Christen- foery has refused to allow her kindness to be publicized. But recently she entered a hospital for an eye operation and members of her family decided it would be a good time to tell the story, feeling many of the woman's friends would want to send her cards. ! Some 40 years ago Mrs. Christenbery mailed several clippings to friends. They appreciated It so ; much she decided to continue th« > practice but expand it to anyone, friend or stranger, she thought j might like to receive such clip! pings. i According to the family, stamps cost her $8 a week not to mention the envelopes and papers she clips. , And it takes time, too. to read, . clip out the articles and get them j into the mail. ! The eye operation put a temporary halt to Mrs. Christenbery's wonderful hobby but members of I her family are carrying on during ! her recovery. , We certainly, for one, wish this kind southern lady a speedy re- i covery. The world surely needs ; people like Mrs. Christenbery. ; Purloined. "Girls ire whit worn! en oTer 45 call e*ch other." . . . Uncle Mat's Letter. i One of the members of the ; town's medical fraternity telephon- ; ed and said: "You missed some; thing unusual the other day." | That's not strange, considering ) the number of unusual things I which occur and never get into print. But we asked him to continue. "Well, there were 22 new babies in Union Hospital," he informed us. What is so unusual about that? "Only three of them were males," he countered with a laugh. "And if you think there wasn't a lot of back seat hollering you should have been there." Doc, it's been about 21 years | since we've manipulated one of those 3-cornered jobs.
