The second inspection of vehicles begins in December, but Slider pointed out that because of the delay of opening the inspection station vehicles bearing tags ending in four and five, due for check in June, were not inspected until July. "Due to the late opening," Slider said, "only 48 vehicles are slated for inspection in December. However,, more than 3,000 vehicles are due inspection in January. To avoid delay, persons should keep in mind the number of vehicles scheduled for December and get the inspection early." RAN BREAD NEW LOOK SAME DELICIOUS FLAVOR STUART To avoid a possible jam at the Martin County vehicle inspection station, county engineer-administrator G.T. Slider reminded motorists Thursday to get their vehicles inspected now. "Our records indicate that approximately 2.000 vehicles have not been inspected." Slider said.

BIG 8"x 10" PORTRAITS IN LIVIN6 COLOR sj to beat Thanksgiving to the punch w ith our Christmas decorations and why the same old ones? A. Although the ornaments may not be installed and ready by Thanksgiving this year, the latter part of November has been traditionally the target date for the lights because it was "the will of the merchants and commission," Traffic Engineer Ronald Schutta said. He said his crew was way behind schedule installing the ornaments because the most time-consuming part of installation is the connections which have not begun. The ornaments downtown are not hooked up for lighting. The old ornaments, he said, were used because no money was budgeted by the city for new ones. Schutta admitted the decorations were outworn and one year past their maximum life expectancy of five years. He believed the merchants division of the Greater West Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce to be working on the possibility of replacing the ornaments. Q.

This column is a regular leature of the Thursday Post. By PATRICIA PRESTON Q. Which is older. Palm Beach or West Palm Beach:" A. West Palm Beach, incorporated in 1894 11969 is its Diamond Jubilee), is the senior. Palm Beach is a 1911 newcomer. Q. I saw a jeep adorned with a pair of 'Steers Horns' atop its radiator. They could impale a person in an accident. Are they legal'.' A. Capt. William Edwards, head of the police department patrol division, found an ordinance which might be "loosely" interpreted to prohibit such projections but he believed the matter to be largely civil action in the event of injury. It really depends on the protrusions, he said, "whether they're short-horned or long-horned" and if the protrusions can be classified under the section in the code which demands protection from "load projections." A load projection more than three feet beyond the rear or front of the vehicle must be tagged with a red flag during the daytime and a red light at night. He said it is a debatable issue whether the steers' horns warranted a red flag in front of them. Large hood ornaments such as the rockets on old Buicks could be injurious, he said. Q Why can't the citv install hand railings Irom the street to the library? A. Price quotations for hand railings are now being sought by the city, Administrative Analyst John Sczymanski said. Older people, he said, have a difficult time climbing the stairs on the north side of Clematis Street. Both the stairs and the pond have no guard rails and many citizens have requested they be installed for protection. Q Why is the sidewalk at the e ailroad crossing on 15th Street incomplete'.' Children used the path every day and it should be done. A. City Engineering Director William Goodloe expects the construction of a 30-foot strip of pavement to begin immediately after the receipt of a building permit by the Florida East Coast Railway Co. The permit should be in later this week. Once the pavement is complete, the sidewalk at Roosevelt High School will be continuous from Tamarind Avenue to Australian Avenue. Q. Why do we always have Man Denied Cab Permit FORT PIERCE - C'.t; Commissioners relused to a! low Henry J. Haywood, a Lin coin I'ark man. to run his own cab on the grounds that there is no need tor more cabs, based on a report prepared by Police Chiet V. M Christian-son. Shepard Lesser. Haywood's attorney, said tlie city's Iran chise system was not an issue, but he indicated it was a sore spot with many cab drivers. Commissioner Merle Morns aid that some drivers were having diflieulty making a living and asked how granting Haywood s permit could change the situation. "The reason these people aren't bringing home enoug! money is nol because there'.-not enough business, but be cause of the rather unreason able overhead here to drive , cab." Lesser replied. Chiet ChristKinson note that cab drivers he had con tncted lor his report said thei; chiet concern was I hat to gel out ol the $H to Ml per day range, thev must pav to drive i heir own cabs for a Iranclus-i d company.
