4 TUESDAY JULY 3, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS RADIO Day By Day By Atiociatad Prut NEW YORK, July 3.—A viewer analysis of color television by the CBS system is in order now that the network's limited daytime commercial schedule has been operating for a week. Here are some of these impressions: At first the bright hued pictures jive a highly favorable reaction, particularly to any one who has seen only black and white TV. The images seem startling realistic. After watching a while the eye accustoms itself to the different medium and the pictures do not seem as sharp as at first. Colors in closeups are well defined, but when greater areas are covered there is a tendency to blur in spots. Because the color is put in by artificial means—the motor driven wheel with color filters that turns in front of the receiving tube— not all tones are true counterparts of the originals. Reds in a person's face seem to be stressed more than necessary. In watching the CBS receivers, which use enlarging lenses to bring the pictures as close as possible to the to the size produced by a 12-inch tube, it is necessary to sit nearly on a line with the center of the screen. Otherwise, deviation to one side tends to produce lens distortion. o FOURTH OF JULY SPECIALS: On Television Tonight (Time central daylight): ABC-TV—Philadelphia attorneys participating in a panel discussion in connection with the 175th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

July 3 — Automobile Insurance Companies' were given permission today to charge higher liability premiums In Illinois because accidents have increased. The State Insurance Department, which approved the rates, said they included a 15 per cent increase for bodily injury coverage and a 25 per cent boost in the rate for property damage coverage. Passenger and commercial automobiles, other than "long haul" and hired trucks, are affected. The new rates apply to all policies written on or after today and to policies with effective dates of Aug. 1 or later, regardless of when written. J. Edward Day, state insurance director, said there were 18 per cent more reported accidents in Illinois during the period from July 1, 1950 to March 31, 1951 than in the comparable period a year earlier.

Lunch with Lopez music. 2:00 Bob Poole hour. 6:45 Newsreel. 9:15 I Love a Mystery. By AiMciated Press WESTERN STATES have put a damper on forest fires that blackened thousands of acres of timberland. Most of the fires were reported out or under control today. The flood situation in the Midwest was brighter, too. High waters continued to recede in Missouri and aKnsas where floods swept over half a million acres of farmland. The threat of new fires remained in some states, however, because of continued dry weather. More than 85,000 acres of timberland in New Mexico, Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon and Arizona have been devastated in the last two weeks. HARDEST HIT WAS NEW Mexico. All except two fires in the state were under control. Flames still swept through the Gila National Forest where approximately 39,500 acres have been seared in the last 12 days. The other uncontrolled fire raged in impassable wilderness 30 miles north of Silver City. Three national forests in New Mexico have been closed for the July 4 holiday but Rangers still feared new outbreaks because of careless fishermen and picnickers. In British Columbia, a 20,000- acre fire on Vancouver Island burned out of control. There was little hope of stopping it until rain falls. ONLY AREAS IN EASTERN MISSOURI still fought flood waters. The swollen Missouri river threatened levees near St. Charles, endangering 25,000 acres of rich bottomland. About 20,000 acres in the area already is under water. Two hundred families near St. Charles have been forced from their homes. Some highways in western and central Missouri and in Kansas remained closed because of flood waters. Newspapers Are Raising Prices By Associated Press NEW YORK, July 3—A hike in newsprint prices of $10 a ton is putting a squeeze on United States publishers. Canadian producers, who supply more than 80 per cent of the newsprint supply used in this country, blamed freight rate increases and higher labor and production costs for the increase, effective yesterday. With supplies short and other costs mounting some American publishers already have found it necessary to increase the price of Daily newspapers. For instance, the newsstand price of the Watertown (NY) Daily Times went from five to seven cents today and home delivery rate went from five to six cents daily. Mail subscriptions also will be boosted. And at Providence, R. I., the Providence Journal went up to five cents a copy. It has been four cents since aJn. 1, 1948. Behind it all is the newsprint price boost that brought the cost close to all-time high of $120. * vim j, •imiiHnwiiiinHtimmmninnwttRii FARMERS DON'T STO P WORK PHONE 1101 When You Have Tire Trouble We'll come riqht out fro your farm and service your tires on the job! • Flats fixed on any make or size tire without removing the wheel from 'our equipment. • Cuts and breaks repaired. • Tubs valves replaced. • Liquid illing drained and replaced.
