-EDITORIAL A Safe Speed Limit . Thetnore WP drive an automobile tlie more we are persuaded that these states which impose a 60-mile-an-hour speed limit have fairly well hit the top .salety limit. Modem automobiles are biiilt for hijrh- %peed oiieration, bari-inpr tire failure or some similar mishap. But the hijirhways aren't highspeed. Out on ion*!- stretches of little-used highway such as to be found in Wyoming and other God-forgotten areas high speeds are attainable with comparative safety but throughout most of the country speeds much higher than 60 or (5i> are not safe. Comers are too sharp, unexi>ected broken patches in the concrete or asphalt suddenly loom up before the driver, narrow bridges are encountered, huge trucks block the viev,- and monopolize the I 'oad and many other hazards are encountered. A cruising speed of 60 and virtually a top limit of 6-5 are dictated by outmoded road.s that are the I 'ule rather than the exception. One of the finest roads in the country is a 'nnr-lane, traffic separated super-highway between I?oulde,r and Denver but speed is limited to 60. It makes one sto]) and wonder what can 1)6 exi»cted at 75 and 80 mph on roadways not half so fit and with no lane separation, ft is pretty obvious that oId-fa.shioned highways place the limit on safe .speeds. The American Decision In 15)13 General Eisenhower made this statement: "In the American scene I .see no fiearth of men fitted by training, talent and integrity lor national leadership. On the other hand, nothing in the international or domestic situation es)>eciaHy qualifie.s me for the most impoitant office in the world, a man whose adult years have been spent in the country's military forces. At least this is true in my ease." History will record the popular genera! as his frankest critic. Thi.s is the season of the year when one seeks to oi>en those sticky windows which have successfully resisted effort since last autumn. The World Today Many Await Coming of July Washington iJPi —For many people 65 and older July 1 will be like the three o'clock school bell that Jet them out when they were kids. After July 1 (lie social security pension reaches a new ma.ximum of $80 a month. Many old people win retire thei; to collect. Apyone now on pension or who retires before July 1 yvin never be entitled to the new maximum of $80. The only ones who can get that much arc those 65 or older who ouit work after July 1 and fill the other requirements for getting the maximum. The presdnt ma.ximt:ni is around 88.50. There has been talk around the country that swarms of old people, now working, would quit after July 1. Social security people here say: * * « TlIE NIJSIBER WILL jump for a couple (.f months and then return to normal. Officials ^n charge of the government's manpowej- program don't expect the increased retirements after July 1 to affect the total manpo\v .T piclu-e much. In case you've forgotten the background of thos<> social security pension changes. Here it ix: Congress Increased social security benefits in th^^ fall of 1960 when the minimum penion was $10 a month and the maximum about $45. The increase was to be in two stapes: tf * * L FOR TllOSfc OS pension or going on pension before July 1. 1952 the minimum was raised tn $2n and .'the nioximum to around $68.50. By JAStES MARLOW 2. Those going on pension after July I, 1952 would never receive less than $20 and could, if entitled to it, receive as much as $80. At the same time congress laid down some rules for getting this $80 maximum: It a person worked 18 months in a job covered by social security between Jan. 1, 1951 and July 1, 1952 and his pay was at the rate of $3,600 a year he could, by retiring after July 1, 1952, get $80 a month. For this reason a lot of old people who might have retired .loonor—but who then couldn't get more than $68.50—decided to,keep on working until July 1. * !> * ALL THAT'S BEEN said in this story so far applies only to people who have been employed by others In these past 18 months. For the self-employed people there was a slightly different rule: To be entitler! to the full $80 a month, a self- employed person must keep on working till next Jan. 1. He could get some pension if he retired before Jan. 1, but not the new maximum of $80. If you're uncertain about (A) when you should retire or (B' what kind of a pension you should get, contact your nearest social security office. Even though you feel pretty sure you know all the rules but haven't checked over your particular, case with the social security people, you might benefit by doing so. That's because each person's case is Just a Uttle different from that of anyone else. Ike Sets Some Things Straight Comblaloc the VUillcator ud RepuMlcaa.

Stock Car Races Sunday At Okohoji The Okohoji "Spcedbowl" opened the Hummer racing hoason laat Sunday with a truck full of midgets; The midgets were all members of the Missouri Valley MIdgel Racing association. These, little cars weigh around 1,000 pounds and are valued iii between '$5,00li and $9,000. Kipping around the thlrd-of-a- njtlc.trftck the drivers and cai:i fought for pay dirt In a Berles of heats, a trophy dash, and feature raceii, On the eighth lap of the fea­ ture race a car driven by Bill Boyd of Omaha slid sideways on th'.' track coming out of the northwest turn. * * * DON nOSS ALSO of Omaha was unable to avoid hitting him and plowed into the side of the Boyd machine. Boyd rolled twice ending up near the fence while Ross went on up and over the other car and rolled three limes down the center of the track. Both drivers were rushed to the Spencer hospital. Ross escaped with four broken ribs and Boyd suffered only a bruised knee, The curs were described as complete losso.s. Larry Wheeler of Kansas City came on in to win the feuturo with Kenney Crabbe ot Slou.x City close on his heels for second. * a> * .STARTING .SUNDAY Iho "stock curs" win be turned loose on the oval. These cars combine all the thrills and spills of the professional dare-devil act and the stiff competition of big car racing. Coming into the turns wide open and ing and steaming their way aroimd the track many of the drivers wlh on courage alone. Checkin tithe for the drivers, win be one o'clock with the .races starting almost immediately. Thfero will be no time trials, the drivers will draw for position.

Alosaer held the Globetrotters scorel^as after his first pitch of the night which ended In a home run. The left-hander came on In relief In the third with none down and baaes loaded. His first pitch waa tabbed for a grand-slam homer by Ted Dixon liut,after that waa out of the way Mosser waa invincible, giving up only one run (tho homer) and four hits In his seven full innings of work, walking none and striking out seven." He set the Globetrottcra down In order In the fifth, aeventh and eighth frames and never did let them put two hits together In the same inning. * :!! * THE OTIfER half of tho battery. Bill Oudding, finally waa permitted to hit the ball on his fifth appearance at the plate and he promptly sizzled a single through first base to bring home the tying and winning runs. This happened In the eighth. On Duddlng'a four other trips to the plate he drew free tickets to first, Oordle WInkel la next In line in tho* billing of stara for the homo club. He turned In three fielding gems, throwing out runners on two shallow hit balls as he charged the pellet, scooped and threw In the same motion. His third was an over-the-head catch of a pop fly in short left field. * =;! * THE RED SOX went about overcoming a five-run deficit In .a thorough, Systematic and workmanlike manner as they fell behind 9 to 4 after a five-run Globetrotter third Inning. They grabbed off three of the counters in the fifth when Don Hall poled out a bases-loaded triple. The sacks were filled on two walks and an infield single by WInkel. The Sox brought the count to 9-8 in the sixth when Daniels filled the bases on three walks and Jim Woltz brought Mike Boettchcr across on a slow roller that went for a hit when no one covered first base. The winning tallies were plated by Dudding in the eighth after Manager Gus Freeman had opened the inning with a sharp single to center, stole second, went to third when Bartkowskl's fly was dropped in right field and both runners scampered homo on Duddlng's game-winning hit. * * • THE GLOBETROTTERS started their scoring with one run in the first inning. A neat cut-off play engineered by Dudding and Freeman nipped another potential tally at the plate. The one run came on a single by Cunningham, a hit batsman and a single by Davenport. The Trotters added three more In the second on two hits, one by Dixon and Cimningham's two bagger; a walk and an error in right field. A double play cut short the visitors' rally as Wolte took White's fly after a long run and doubled Cunningham off second. The five-run Globetrotter splurge In the third came about through a single, a hit batsman and a throwing error on fielding a bunt which loaded the bases. A single by Ivory scored one run and then Nixon's circuit clout accounted for four more. * * * THE FIBST four runs by the homo club came In the first two frames, three In the first on four walks, a single and .an error and one In the second on a two-base jir- ror of Kaley's fly ball to right, another error when a ptckoff throw got Kway from the ahortstojp -^hlc'n let Kaley go to' third from wlilch point ho scored on Freeman's lino drive tb deep right field. The Sox are idle now until Sunday Vhen they travel to Spencer for a second engagement with tho Cardinals. A Monday night contest Is on tap for Jaycee field with tho Wall Lake Popcorn Kernels putting In their first appearance of the seoaon In Bathervlllc.
