r;"?:. OF ni?.T'.::vi f " ' VOLUME 42, NO. 32 1958 with the editor We had a wonderful Saturday evening as the FHS Senior Class gathered in our home for a party. They were accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Pickett, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Schichtl, Mr. arid Mrs. Dean Curtis, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Redel and Mr. Walter Farwell. ttw We certainly were impressed with the high character of the class in general and their politeness. ttw Part of the evening's entertainment was a scavenger hunt in three teams led by Bill Finch, John Rhode and Larry Maxson. ttw Before the hunt one said, "What if they get mad when we come to the door?" Our answer, "Don't worry, they'll be glad to see you." Y'all were, weren't you? ttw Donna Heth said as they were leaving, "Let's go down to the drug store. She has everything." Meaning Lois Davis, of course. ttw One item required was a white hair. The donor: Paul Davis. • • • . Among the prizes given the hunt winners were a pair of rubber baby panties and a pair of W. H.

One reason the State I," .isl-'ture fovliids lights and sir>'n; on private ears is that many oilier individuals art- usini; them. Such use should be restricted to law enforcement agencies. ' •. -** Faytte's Town Council is faced witii solving this problem. Largely, the .situation boils down to wht'thi r or not the town needs a traffic 1 patrol ear, and in effect, .ral'fic patrol. The only intelligent way cif controlling traffic 1 is with an au- tumohiU; eiiforc'ejnc'tit system. Traffic control is not the only prohli m nc'cc'ssitaling the use of an auto. Patrol of the? town, including places like the cemetery, stone quarry and bean mill, the college buildings, the park, protection of outlying homes and access to the 1 Mayor's Court, often held in his home, all are loo remote to give 1 to walking. Many suggest that a street patrolman would be sufficient, hut under modern conditions it would be an impo.'V.ibility to achieve (1) traffic control C2) safety guarantees to older citi/cns and young kids while on the streets and (3) patrol of the 1 community to check for fires, vandalism and other possible disturbances. Purchases of automobiles for municipal use do not include taxes. They can be had for around $1500 more or less. A car used five years would cost, the town around $!iOO per year. With any kind of law enforcement at all of these trucks and out of state cars that speed thru hero, the car would not only pay for itself, but a part of the policeman's salary, also. This is economical! Mayor Cousins said that the Council will ask for bids from auto dealers by '.M February 1958 and said that the council will reserve the right to receive or reject any or all bi:ls. In commenting to the council about the situation, Mayor Cousins said, "We are trying to form an organization in Fayette to promote business and industry. I don't believe any new business or any industry would move into a town that did not have police protection. A policeman in a patrol car serves his community in two ways (1) his presence serves as a deterrent to traffic violators and (2) the vehicle patrol keeps traffic in order.
