WASHINGTON ( U P I ) - The United Stales may reduce its troop strenglh in Europe lo a level even below the one maintained before Ihe Berlin crisis last fall. The reduction would follow the demobilizalion in Augusl of Na- lional Guardsmen and reservisls. Defense Deparlmenl officials indicated that the demobilizalion U, S, Files Suit On Television Payments System NEW YORK ( U P I ) --The Justice Department filed suit in Federal Court loday against Ihe Columbia B r o a d c a s l i n g System charging thai its new payment svslem for affiliated TV stations violates the Sherman antitrust law. The government requested thai CBS be forbidden lo use the ne\v paymenl system because it forces ABC affiliates to lake almost all their afternoon and evening programs from the network. The suit said the syslem had reduced competition in the production and sale of television programs by independent producers and has limited some national ad- verliser's chances of obtaining prime broadcast time. The complaint said lhat unde a plan used since January, 1901, certain CBS affiliates are required lo lake more programs from the network lo receive the same payments. As a result of the new plan. independenl program producers and non-nelwork advertisers arc denied access lo the mosl desirable broadcast periods on Ihe affiliated stations, the government charged. CBS has about 200 affiliates am owns five stalions --in New York Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Ange les and St. Louis. jlus additional commitments wil orce the reduction. But anolher actor, Uiey said, is that the idea of maintaining Iroops at home vith jet Iransports for movemen overseas has gained a nolch over seeping garrison forces abroad. Addilionally, Ihe Penlagon is charged wilh a major responsibil ly for slopping Ihe drain on U.S ;old reserves. Less Americans overseas would mean less dollars spent there.

Federal EC On Steel 1 WASHINGTON (UPI) -- High jovernment economisls expressed ptimism today lhat the $6-a-ton ncrease in sleel prices would nol mpede the business expansion. They were uncertain about ils irccise repercussions on other irices. There was, however, no argument with Ihe thought expressed by one official that "there s only one direction Ihis thing can work-- up." Higher prices for steel may be partially absorbed by manufacturers who feel the pinch of compe- ilion, economists said. Bui, some aid, a boost by one company could lead olher major firms in an induslry lo raise prices almost simultaneously. Auto prices probably will go up starting wilh 1963 models, several economisls said. But Ihe cost ol mme appliances -- refrigerators, air conditioners, washers, rotis- seriesAele.-- may be more slable. Compelilion in appliances is sliifer/than in aulos and markets have not been slrong. Moreover, sleel js more important in new cars than in most household terns./ An expectalion lhat price advances would be delayed, slag- gered and mild led lo confidence .hal the general business upturn would not be crimped.

No Fatal Traffic Accidents In City For 13 Months The monlh of March, Eureka's thirteenth calendar month withoul a traffic death, may have been luckier than ils unlucky nunv ber indicates, Eureka's Mayor Henry Terheyden commented yes terday in noling that 52 accidents and 12 person injuries had been ·eported in Ihe monlhly Eureka Police Department traffic report Terheyden said that the tola accident total was several figures higher and the injuries came close to equaling the monthly acciden and injury totals of the 14-month period of two years ago, which saw eight traffic fatalities.. Ter heyden said, though, that the city hopes lo extend to two year. its record withoul a Iraffic death Adding a serious note of warn ing, Terheyden said that a recen upward trend in monthly acciden totals, broken only by February's oulstanding low of 32. accidents and a possible recent slight increase in injuries, may have in dicaled a lessening of driver am pedeslrian caution and a speed up in driving speeds within Ihe cily limits -- the latter possibly partly coincident to recent diffi culties in securing repairs on the cily's radar speed meler. . With Ihe radar meter now bad in operation, and apparently dis covering more than its usual quot; of speed violators as measure! by speed citations issued, the mayor urged local drivers to ease up on the gas pedal, not only to themselves the cost of a atio of single car accidenls involving intoxication was 25 per ent higher than the same stalls- ic for Ihe state in 1960. The speaker said the use o£ iighway checkpoint was largely 'esponsible for the low number if traffic accidents, four, that ook place here during the last loliday season. The highway patrol is presently using the record of drunk driving accidenls lo map out a check- loint pattern for use in periods of ikely heavy drinking, Craig said. In the last two 'weeks every lighway patrol car has been equipped wilh two sealed intoxi- melers, he added. Craig poinled out that these devices are a positive means of immediately determining whelher a person is intoxicated, according o stale law. Irving Kelly, chairman of the Exchange Club "Search for High School Talent," announced that he local talent contest will be held at the Eureka Inn on the night of April 27. ·ket but even to avoid being in traffic fatality tha tic! ;olved in a in v:ould serve lo dash present hope of extending Eureka's curren traffic holiday from death to full two years.

The five trustees voted unanimously at the special meeting to grant the salary raise. This $240 raise will give equal salary increments to follow the beginning $4740 figure previously approved by the Board. Except in the case of the beginning $4740, the Board had formerly granted only a $120 increase. The new figures place the Fortuna district in a more comparable position with other schools of the county. Superintendent Lester demons explained some of the salary statistics quoting the $4200 state minimum of six years ago and the 1961-62 state minimum of $4500 offered by Fortuna this year. He' explained to the Board that with only the state minimum, school administrators are not in a position to secure the better teachers. Salary for the two principals was as originally adopted, giving Mrs. Berniece Harpst $10,000 and V. P. Lincoln nearly $8500. AH Board members were present at the meeting including Gerry Harbers, Bill Cox, Elwyn Johansen, clerk Dick Rodrigue, president Carl Renner.
