EDITORIAL ONE YEAR WITH THE LEADER On 17 Stptettiber 1957 we came to Fayette aod to toe LEADER foUowmg 37 months of military i«j-r«ce. leaving one battle and taking on another — thai of giving Fayette a good newspaper. After a year, we're happy to show our resuiu m thisanniveraary edition, ^e've had a iot of adventures in - the wo rid of journalism and it has been a wealth of ex ' ptrieace. We've also made mistakes and offended a few -rtkne*. SomcTimes, the offenses have been intentional, ' 'other times oversight. We've got some intentional ones —tfoed up far the future. But. as far as our mistakes go, vre wouldn't have "made any if we hadn't tried anything. But, we Eke it here. We're working so your ""LEADER can grow. When, a year ago. we had to go to a prominent tocahnan—because we didn't have enough money of our own to buy the paper—we didn't want to do so. But ""*'"fle v wa* kind and willing to help Fayette keep its paper " and made us the loan. So did another prominent area cftizen aod an Oeiwein hank So, here we are. We're certain the future lies filled with growth and progress for our paper and for our town. Any town the * site of Fayette sbouid have a paper. Any time any group of 1500 people live together as close as we—and e*pe~ pialiy with a college—there should be an active medium of communication such as a paper. That is our part in the community.

Once a man had paid out what amounted to a small fortune to buy an automobile, he had to dress in a linen duster — a long, white coat that kept dust from settling ' dh hJs street clothing — goggles and » heavy hat Riding above a steam boiler that hissed ominously, he used a steering bar that guided the car over rutted roads. He watched a steam gauge, a fuel gauge, an air gauge and, sometimes, the road It was a perilous existence. Mechanically, things improved "^sSpewhat in 1903, when the first sfiaering wheel was invented. The "Stanley Brothers built a racer that "went slightly more than 190 miles an hour in 1907. How ever, It fell apart almost immediately after it achieved that in- "ctedible speed. But motorists still had their teeth jarred mightily every time 'thiy took to the highways. And 'It was not unusual for them to ".""end lip In a vacated cornfield. "bordering states seldom consulted " one' another about road develop meat, and one state's roads fre qj.endy endsd a*, the boundary A a r.e;gl-.boruig m:e. Th_« pr&blem via solved somewhat by the federal government 1925 when the Federai-aid Road Act vis passed to stimulate the building of interstate roads, i But the problems of the moVorists were far from solved. For example, road signs were erected by states, and there was no uniform code to guide highway builders to the best signs. Each state seemed to have its own peculier sign system, and motorists suffered mightily when they crossed from one state to another. In a significant effort to combat this dangerous situation, a uniform sign code was developed in 1925, and the code has been changed to meet improved sign developments since then Today, many of the early problems of motoring have been solved. Now, instead of being a plumber, steam fitter, acrobat, hot and rich, motorists have to be adroit, alert, courteous and safety conscious. Many improvements are being made on our roads. We are paying for vast new turnpikes without cross traffic and red lights. Highway engineers are patting up reflective signs that can be seen at night, when most accidents happen. Safety engineers are making cars safer to crash in. But it still is up to the motorist to get in and drive. And it is more difficult for most people to be courteous and safety con- 5 :.ix 1 „_ .. _ . - - ""2 s :i ~--:c-7Z>:n f .-.rive? as j ;->: >e-rvi-Ye" v»"r .5 » r .i_-.-: - DEFINITE inar- f.r. iJ.ii~-zrzc.-i z*vx'i*K a TKL"m ^-pf -rj-r .-f as tas Ailaru JE*e-Curt*r. ftectr* y^-i.::: z ir.i i ":-:cf«=ra'.:re" •-•vat i-i-i sw-atbe.-j a*, cr.e price. kr.i :t.z pjrLc z\ a&o^ier pr>c«. z>y tiic gis-.^rAzk of the "rraemberssip aiVi^efid" 5y>*^pe or li.vtr the pabhc rje up ar.i d*7fir,3 that Congress and State L*gis!attj»*» ef&^k (javi'n on -&^reai^jg abuj« of "eooperatjve" tix pr:v:;eees a.-.d benefits.

A period of "normal progress" for the next five or six years is predicted by the Washington business reporting firm.

Prices are going up in all countries and they eflect our economy, too. Government ipendingi No matter what men of either party say the pressure is to expand public spending, so deficits may plague budgets in the future. Public pressure continues to be for big spending, regardless of inflation that comes in its wake. Not all states and localities will share equally in the growth of the next 25 years, the Kiplinger report points out. The biggest single area of growth is the "heartland" area from Pittsburgh to Chicago. Next in growth comes the Atlantic seaboard. New York to Baltimore.
