editorials PAG! 4 Garden City Telegram Thursday, June 10, 1971 Fingering Danger Spots It usually takes a tragedy involving multiple deaths to call attention to obvious traffic hazards. And even then, corrections may be a long time coming. Reno County is an example. A few years ago, at K14 and old US50, there were two traffic accidents within a short period of time. Both involved multiple fatalities and in both instances a motorist 'had come through the stop sign on K14. A" hue and cry went up to improve the intersection. Improvements finally were made and the chances of another tragedy there are now slim. The intersection has been made a four-way stop, warning signs have been erected well ahead of the crossroads and a bumpy surface has been installed to warn approaching motorists. While it may be a nuisance to US50 traffic, it is a small price to pay. Laves will be saved. What brings this to mind is the tragic accident a week ago at a grade crossing near Wichita. Six persons were killed. The senseless loss of life so aroused a visiting California businessman he offered to put up $5,000 to spearhead a campaign to improve poorly marked grade crossings. Only a single, unlighted railroad cross-arms sign marked the northeast Sedgwick County crossing where the six died in the after-dark accident I dont know the situation in Pinney County, but I suspect there are similar grade crossings waiting for a tragedy. Crossing improvements cost money, but how can the financial investment be measured against one life saved? A survey would be in order to at least call attention to those grade crossings that present a potential danger. ^f StJ. IN JOHN Kersey's book, "Letter to the Alumni," one of many short essay-reports deals with communication ... "There is a craving on campuses even more urgent, it seems, than the gripes of hunger and the itch of libido: to know what the hell's going on. It's all a question, as everyone keeps saying, of communication, Hersey agrees. , * * * ?. '1 "BUT I WOULD point out that communication on paper is not what is needed . . . fuU documentation of every formative process would simply produce an even greater avalanche than now of unread multi-copied materials." And then he adds a line that we think is a beaut: "Bureaucracy's womb is the Xerox machine." * * * HOW MANY times have you come home from a conference or meeting with little hi the way of new thoughts or knowledge in your head but with a great stack of printed, mimeographed, and Xeroxed stuff which may contain valuable information? Or it may just represent a lot of busy work back at the office. You very likely never will know which — because you won't get around to reading it. * * * '*' COMMUNICATION is a difficult, almost impossible matter, Hersey concedes. It is particularly so on today's campuses where the author sees student yearning "so painful as to seem a symptom of an illness — just wanting a decent share in knowing what the future will bring. Overall it is not so much a matter of procedures that will solve the communication problem but of the tone of relationships within a given community. ". . . trust, confidence, respect, and love are what are so bitterly needed," Hersey believes. * * * WE RECOMMEND Hersey's book (now in paperback) for any who seek a definition of the present mood of students. It pleads for understanding and the avoidance of stereotyped thinking Garden City Telegram Published Dally b««P» Sunday and Sfi Holidays Yearly By Th» Talagram Publishing Company 276-3232 HO N. 7th Gardtn City.
