PACE EIGHT DANVILLE AUVOCATK-MKSSKNCER, DANVILLE, KENTUCKY WF.nNF.SDAY. SEPTEMBER 10. 1975 Christmas Stamp Price Uncertain By JOSEPH NOCERA Capitol Hill Newi Service A M Washington Writer WASHINGTON This year's commemorative Christmas stamps won't have the price listed on the stamp because the Postal Service isn't sure what the stamps will cost by Christmas. The service is planning to ask for a 30 per cent rate hike in the price of the present 10-cents-an-ounce first-class rate. Such new rates can be made effective on a "temporary" basis 90 days after the filing, while the Postal Rate Commission has them under review. But postal officials are still trying to decide whether the new 13-cent rate should be put into effect as soon as possible which would be early ' December or be postponed ' until after the Christmas season. The Christmas stamp is due :: to go into production in the next r few weeks. .: "It's a tough decision," ex-- plains one official. "If we bring .: the new rates in right in the middle of Christmas mailing, ; the public confusion and resentment could be enor- mous. " But , he added, any delay Z would cost the debt-ridden 'service added revenue during the lucrative holiday season.

Radiologists say that there is low incidence of breast cancer in young women and that X-rays are less effective in detecting it in them than in older women. Damage Cost Study Accidents involving sub-compact cars result in the highest damage costs, according to a recently released study by the Highway Loss Data Institute, an arm of the insurance industry. The studv shows that the average payment per claim for subcompacts was $690. The figure exceeded even average claims paid on such luxury autos as Cadillacs. Standard full-size cars had the lowest average claims, $541. Subcompacts, according to the study, rated high in the frequency of claims, trailing ' only "specialty" cars, such as Mustangs and Firebirds. The study also showed that the average payment per claim for 1975 subcompacts increased by 30 per cent over 1974 models. The other categories of autos showed similar increases in claims pai ed over the previous year. These increases were attributed to increases in the price of auto parts, which, the study said, have gone up faster than the Consumer Price Index. Attorneys Too Costly When the Supreme Court recently ruled that lawyers in Virginia were engaging in anticompetitive practices by charging uniform minimum WORKSHOP SET-Cecil Bennett.-director of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Institute of Christian Education in Cincinnati, Ohio, will be holding a workshop from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Indian Hills Christian Church. He also will be speaking in , the morning worship service at 10:30 and evening service at 7 o'clock. The public is invited to attend. - v- rees, it underscored what has become a basic fact about the legal system in this country: Most Americans cannot afford an attorney. And when the American Bar Association met last month in Montreal for its annual meeting, one lawyer, John Harl Campbell, spoke out about the. problem in a speech before the organization. Here are some of his remarks: "It is generally conceded that at least 70 per cent, or some 140' million people in this nation, do not have access to legal services. This condition is the inevitable result of the profession's perseverance in retaining certain of our rigid, unwarranted, and anticompetitive ethical standards. "What has been our response to the consumer's plight? "We have publicly bemoaned or, until lately, denied his inability to obtain legal counsel, while privately we have encouraged minimum fee schedules, thereby assuring the absence of price competition for legal services within a community. We have publicly paid homage to our duty to see that the public receives competent (legal) service, (but) have vigorously sought to prevent the creation of alternatives to our high-priced services. We have, in sum, promosed them everything and given them only that which we were forced to surrender." Campbell went on to say that lawyers have, for a long time, been able to hide behind the cloak of "professionalism" to justify such things as bans on advertising and opposition to para-legal training. But, he concluded, "If the public must drag us kicking and screaming from our heralded professionalism. . .to the marketplace for goods and services, drag us they will." FBI Probes Remark By Klaus in an LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Federal Bureau of Investi gation says it is investigating a remark by a Ku Klux Klan leader who mentioned the word "lynching" in a speech criticizing the federal judge who or dered schools in Jefferson County desegregated. Brian Jinnet, an FBI information officer, said Tuesday that the agency was looking into the remarks made by Phillip Chopper, grand dragon of the Kentucky Klan, in a rally on Aug. 30 in Corbin. Gordon issued the deseg regation plan in July. It calls for more than 22,600 pupils to be bused to achieve racial balance in Louisville area schools. Gordon, of Madisonville, has been the subject of criticism from the Klan since he issued the desegregation plan. Chopper, in his Corbin speech, said Gordon could be removed from office only through impeachment or by "death by natural causes." Chopper said "natural causes to a man like that is lynching." Jinnet said the investigation of the remark should not be. given too much significance. "It's not an isolated incident we're looking into," he said. Conduct at the Corbin rally is among "hundreds of things" that have occurred in connection with the desegregation of Louisville schools that have attracted the FBI's attention, Jinnet said All of the "things that might involve violations of federal, law" are being probed by two departmental attorneys as signed by the Justice Depart ment to the Jefferson County area. Sheriff Faces Bribery Trial PAINTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Sixty prospective jurors were summoned today from Law rence County in an attempt to seat a jury for trial of Sheriff Ray Melvin on a bribery charge. ' .
