2-Algena (la.) Upp«r DM Molntt Wednesday, Nov. 22, 1967 IF you feel you have no faults- that makes another one I COUNTRY MUSIC NIGHT Wednesday don smith GOT a thing in the mail the other day that proved interesting - at least to me, and some of the information contained should be of interest to anyone living in the Iowa climate. It's a wind-chill chart. Produced by the U. S. Army Corps, Minneapolis, it tells that the human body is continually producing and losing heat. Wind increases the loss of heat by reducing the thin layer of warm air next to the skin. THE chart is of value in predicting frostbite only to exposed flesh. Any clothing or material which stops or reduces the wind and gives a degree of protection. No attempt should be made to estimate this protection in the use of the chart. Across the top are listed the temperatures in tens of degrees from 50 above to -60. Down the side are wind speeds from calm to 40 MPH. TOM Waller, an old friend of ours (he's not so old, come to think of it), has been with All- State Insurance home office publications since his graduation this year from Drake University. Recently, he sent us a list of genuine quotes from claim reports submitted by policyholders regarding accidents. They follow. I collided with a stationary tree - I misjudged a lady crossing the street - I told the other idiot what he was and went on -Dog on road applied brakes causing accident - To avoid collision, I ran into the other car - A pedestrian hit me and went under my car- She saw me suddenly, lost her head, and we met - I collided with a stationary car coming the other way- 1 thought the window was down, but it was up, as I found out when I put my head through it - Three women were talking to each other and when one stepped backwards and one stepped forwards I had to have an accident. No wonder the accident rate is so high. DOESN'T seem possible, but Pres. John F. Kennedy was assassinated four years ago today (Nov. 22) at Dallas. And we're certain if he were still alive and guiding the country, we'd be better off than now. fteorgc Hamilton, portarying the lalp cinintry-u-estern singer, Hank William*, firm an impromptu performance from a porch in this scene from " Voiir Chealin' Heart." The Metro~Goliltryn- Mayer picture, in I'anarition. nnfolils the ilratnalir anil moving story of Williams' brief but colorful life in trhirh he roue to fame as one of the ntnsl popular composers antl entertainers of his time. Susan (Hirer, Heil Ittillnns ami Arthur O'Connell also star in the netr film, which features ten nf Williams' song hits. JUST for fun, let's say it's zero and the wind is at 10 MPH. The actual equivalent temperature would then be -21. See what the wind does. And if the wind is 30 MPH, the equivalent temperature is -48, with the thermometer still showing zero. Top figure at the far end of the chart is -60 with a 40 MPH wind. The equivalent temperature is then -148. If a person is properly clothed, he need not worry about freezing- IF the equivalent temperature is not below -21. So, button up your overcoat. SPEAKING of politics the other day with a friend, our discussion led to possible candidates in the '68 election. We couldn't figure out why Richard Nixon seems to be the leading candidate (right now) of the GOP - because it seems to us that Nixon is the only one of three or four Republicans that Pres beat. Maybe the don't really want Johnson can Republicans a president. IF you grit your teeth hard enough it looks like you are smiling. USE of state-owned cars by state employees got a little airing recently. Had to laugh at some of the information given out -Including the fact that it seems a great number of vehicles are used strictly for commuting to and from work. Question: Why don't state employees, even big shots, drive their own cars to work, like the peons, you and me? THE assistant state supt. of schools said he figured the car furnished to him (for use between his home at Indlanola and Des Moines) was a fringe benefit of the job and that he wouldn't have taken the position without it. I say get a new assistant! FIGURES released show that 213 state cars are driven 10,000 miles per year or less and mainly for commuting. And yet, highway patrolmen were (and maybe still are) in some cases furnished with j I • THIS HAPPY PAIR want the most in savings convenience!

They are the type of employee that should have the good vehicles. There's some of this commuting on a county and local level, too. And we never could figure that one out. Fringe benefits? SOME men have a reputation for truthfulness because they can't think fast enough. VIETNAM, as everyone knows, is a mess - the war situation, that is. We happen to be among the many who feel it was silly to ever get involved -and are also among the many who have felt for some time (lots of months) that the offensive should be escalated and the enemy destroyed -hang Red China. What really burns us, however, is the minority groups around the nation who demonstrate against the war, burn draft cards, etc., and the recent actions of that instructor at Northern Iowa University didn't make us very happy, either. OUR feelings toward the draft have never been very solid. However, it seems to be a necessary evil, especially when a nation is at war or nearly so as we have been for too many years. Lord, I hope my kids never have to get in on one of them. I hope, though, if the world is still all loused up when they reach the proper age and the draft comes along that they will take it like men— not like the crud that are demonstrating against it nowadays! THE only way to save money nowadays is to have low pockets and short arms!
