(AP Wirephoto) Should Protection Drop Hike In Fire Insurance Rates Expected LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Fire insurance rates are tied to the quality of fire protection. That's a basic fact of the industry. Consequently, r a t e s will increase if the new law establishing a maximum work week of G4 hours for firemen results in a deterioration of fire service. Rate makers of the industry don't like to talk about the possibility, but William Harmon, manager of the Arkansas In spection and Rating Bureau, conceded that "insurance rates will eventually suffer" if fire protection does. The hour law. Act 326 of 1969. affects 15 cities with population of more than 15,000. Eight of them either had already cut hours below the maximum or moved immediately to do so. CITIES AFFECTED Jonesboro, El Dorado. Pine Bluff, Jacksonville, Blytheville, Benton and Little Rock arc having trouble finding the money to hire the additional men needed to reduce hours. There is talk in some of these cities about reducing the number of firemen required to be on duty at « given time. The latter course could affect a city's insurance rates and cost taxpayers, in the long run. a great deal more than they would spend for maintaining their fire protection standard. BEST RATING Harmon said it was possible that a city could make other improvements in its fire-fighting arsenal which would compensate for a reduction in m a n power and stave off a higher insurance rate. An improved water system could accomplish this, he said. Harmon said it was also pos sible that some cities could spare a man without moving in ing is Class I and no city in Arkansas scores that high. As a matter of fact most of the major cities of the nation, with the best fire-fighting equipment. rank in Class II. Little Rock has a Class III rating, the best in Arkansas. Larger Arkansas cities are generally in the 3-4-5 range. Class 10 covers rural proper ty with no effective fire protection. Harmon said the rating bu reau probably would take a look at the situation in about a year to determine what has pened to fire protection. hap The bureau takes a periodic look at the situation, and shifts cities from class to class depen ing on whether fire protection has improved for deteriorated Harmon said. HOG HIGHLIGHTS A the film on the highlights of 1968 Razorback football season was shown at the regular noon meeting of the Fayetteville Kiwanis Club yesterday at the Downtown Motor Lodge. By CELIENE BRUCE AuMltted Preti Writer UNIVERSITY H E I G H T S . Iowa (AP) -- Esther Winders is a sedate, elderly homemaker until trouble brews. Then she straps gun to hip. leaps on her motorcycle and r o a r s off to meet it head on. Esther, who's approaching 70, has been the town marshal of this quiet little suburb of Iowa City since 1934, and folks say few people give her t r o u b l e when she dons her leather jacket and pants and motorcycle helmet. Off the motorcycle, Esther "just looks like a little old lady." said Mrs. Russell R o s s . vife of a former University Heights mayor, "but when she gets on that thing, look out." A stop sign was placed at the town's main intersection a few years ago, and the marshal sat astride her motorcycle to nab violators. There were plenty. "Motorists were so busy looking at her, they didn't see the stop sign," recalled Mrs. Ross. HUSBAND'S COMMENT Esther's husband. Roy. a retired businessman, said he has always liked her police work but he doesn't think much of the motorcycle. "Riding on that back seat, that's no fun at all." lie noted. For night calls and w i n t e r work Mrs. Winders abandons her sleek silver cycle for a bright red 1960 Studebaker with a red light on top. "No siren." she pointed out. "They don't want any noise here." The marshal also has dress to fit the season -- black leather jacket and pants for winter, white leather for summer. GOOD PEOPLE Mrs. Winders said University Heights, which has a population of some 1.300. including many employes of nearby University of Iowa, is filled with "good people." Although her duties are lim ited mostly to traffic control, particularly on university football Saturdays, she has memories of more exciting assignments. One night she received a tele gram complaint that a drunken couple was having a violent fight. Esther donned her uniform, grabbed her p e a r l handled revolver and went to that outfit." »aid Ros«, her former boss. "She just knocked on the door, marched in and told them to stop fighting or she'd arrest them. They stopped." Winders said he always accompanies his wife on n i g h t calls but has never had to come to her aid. A big bloodhound named Portia also accompanies her. The short, hefty m a r s h a l keeps her age a secret-- "I'm 39 like Jack Benny"--but her friends say she's close to 70. She has had an interest in law enforcement since c h i l d hood. Her father was town marshal in tiny Ackley, Iowa, her birthplace, and her son is a se curity guard at the Iowa Men's Reformatory. Mrs. Ross snid the lady marshal is a great asset to the town. "At least we have sor.'.eone around here who is colorful." she noted. Train NEW DELHI (AP) - The Indian railways will soon have a " s p e i k-as-you - travel" scheme. Under the plan, train passengers will be able to make telephone calls from trains by using a new microwave system.

East Pakistan (AP) - The stench of death hung over villages on the outskirts ol Dacca today as rescue workers dug out more bodies and the es timated death toll in Monday's killer tornado rose to 1,000.
