(AP) -' Here's had news for fugitives hoping to leave their crimes far behind. All states in the nation are now connected by a teletypewriter system that provides instant transmission of wanted bulletins and other police information. It's called the Law Enforcement Teletypewriter Service (LETS) and has been in operation since May 2. "This is the first time all law enforcement agencies in the nation have been tied in together in one network," says Arizona Highway Patrol Maj. Jack Monschein, who heads the national relay center in Phoenix. Some 4,500 police agencies are joined by the network. * * * A bank of 16 machines in the patrol building at Phoenix controls the network automatically. No persons are assigned specifically to operate the center, but officers watch for possible malfunctions and do the minor chores of changing ribbons and rolls of paper. Here's how the system works: The nation is divided into six districts of from four to 13 states each. Each of the states in a district takes its turn sending messages within the district. It's also possible for any one state to send a message nationwide, or to communicate with any other stale. Should there be a major crime in New York City, police there could quickly notify the rest of the nation's officers to be on the lookout for any suspects who have fled that state. If police in Los Angeles should stop a suspicious car from Illinois, in a mailer of mimiles authorities in Chicago could tell Californa officers if the driver is a wanted man. Monschein points to several instances in Arizona. In one, an Oklahoma car was stopped on the desert west of Phoenix. Thirteen minutes later the officer arrested the driver after Oklahoma authorities verified the vehicle was stolen in that state. Before the teletype service began, the nation was virtually cut in half. There was a network in the East, but nothing to tie the East and West toegether. Messages that now take minutes to deliver used to take tours or even days. In the past, messages between the east and west coasts had to go through a painful series of relays by Morse code operators. The new system developed by Bell Telephone has a capacity of 10,009 messages per day. The machines operate 100 words per minutes. The network runs around the clock and each state pays $375 a month to participate. Messages concern missing.per- sons, stolen property, descriptions of wanted persons, information on crimes and urgent messages. It also provides secrecy which was lacking in radio transmissions. Monschein says Arizona was chosen as the relay center because of the state's excellent record in communications. He said the patrol welcomes the chance to operate the center as a public service for law enforce- ment agencies around the na tion. We're still in the n o v i c he admits. "But it' been working out real well. Letters from other law enforce ment agencies indicate the agree. a. o* Why Not Compromise? Van & iJB(Uc*t» lee.) \ren IHUlMlBlllUHlllliyillllUUIIIUIIlllllllllllllllUUBMIIIlllllllllIll!*' DEAR ABBY: After eight years of marriage I am ready to leave my husband. Saturday morning while he was sleeping, I rearranged the furniture in my front room. When I went out in the afternoon, he moved everything back the way it was before I moved it. Naturally I was angry, so I moved everything back again my way. This was no small job, Abby as I have a grand piano, an overstuffed sofa with two matching chairs and several tables and lamps in that room. Well, at 2 o'clock in the morning my husband was moving the furniture around again. I figure that the office is HIS, and the house is MINE. And I don't tell him how to arrange the office furniture and he shouldn't tell me how to arrange the house furniture. I'd like your opinion. ANGRY DEAR ANGRY: You don't have to share your husband's office, but he has to live in the house. If he is dissatisfied with the furniture arrangement at home, let him say so and perhaps you can effect a compromise. In a marriage, there is no HIS and HERS. And if you two don't quit shoving that grand piano around, t h e r e will be a HIS and Rate Hike Plague Dollars Guardian By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Rising interest rates in Europe are a stumbling block for those who are clamoring for Congress to cut interest rates in the United States. Europe gets into the domestic debate this way: Europe's much higher rates could attract more U.S. dollars seeking higher yields. Lowering interest rates here on short-term money could send this pool of temporarily idle dollars — usually called "hot money" — overseas. And this would make it just that much harder for the United States to see that the dollar doesn't fall into the dire straits that beset the British pound. The guardians of the dollar's status of being as good as gold are having plenty of trouble now, even with the interest rates at home still on the climb. For one thing, the U.S. trade gap is narrowing. Exports still top imports, but by less than they did in previous years. Imports are growing at a 15 per cent clip, and exports by only 8 per cent. This cuts the balance of trade to around J4 billion this year, against more than $5 billion last year and $6 billion in 1964. This means fewer dollars that the United States can use to offset its rising dollar-spending abroad for other things such as the Viet Nam War, foreign aid, private investments, tourist travel. The guardians of the dollar aren't anxious to see the U.S. balance of payments deficit — already rising this year — boosted by a flight of dollars seeking higher interest yields overseas. There are a lot of dollars over there now, called Eurodollars, with the total estimated as high as $9 billion. These are in pri- ate rather than foreign government hands, and were built up n the years that the United tales has run a payments defi- it. * * * Eurodollars are used to fi- lance many private deals, in- luding plant expansion over- eas. The interest rates at which they can be borrowed wings widely, reflecting the ease or tightness of the interna- Richardson's Electric Service LOUIS RICHARDSON OWNER-OPERATOR For Quick, Reliable Service Call.. • PO 3-7826 2237 Birch tional money market. Higher interest rates here has brought some dollars home, along with some foreign money deposits and investments. But the recent upturn in European interest rates is halting that trend. * * * . At home the debate over interest rates divides like this:. Seeking easier mony and 1 a means of holding down the increasing cost of financing business expansion, at higher rates for community borrowing to build new schools. But tight money advocates see high interest rates as needed to halt inflation and rising living costs, to prevent overheating of a booming economy with a bust as the aftermath, as a means of holding down the U.S. balance of payments deficits and thus protecting the standing of the dollar.

DEAR ABBY: I am a widow, 45. I work and live in a small town where every move I make is seen. I have lived in the same house for 20 years and neighbors are interested in what I do and with whom I come and go. I date occasionally and have resorted to meeting my gentlemen friends in nearby towns rather than answer questions such as "Who was lie," and, "Is it serious?" I have nothing to hide, I just like privacy. Am I wrong? WANTS PRIVACY DEAR WANTS: If you have MtUfl| to bide, don't go ducking behind potted P"Ims in nearby towns, lest you give tht appearance of guilt. ("The wicked flee when no man pursuetb.") DEAR ABBY: Why don't people who are too old to live alone put themselves in a rest home instead of waiting until their children are ready for a mental institution trying to care for them along with their own family? I work in a rest home and I wouldn't mind living here. Elderly people need more heat than younger people. They have special diets, can't stand to much noise and mtny of, them need some kind oi medical care. They go to sleep early and get up early. Their whole routine is different. Trying to fit them into a home with teen-agers is unfair to them and the young people, too. Why do so many older people who can well afford it, fight against gomf to a rest home? Once they •. get here they are sorry they ( didn't come sooner. WORKS IN ONE DEAR WORKS: Many elderly people "fight" going , to a rest home because they • think it's an institution for unwanted, homeless old folia who have nowhere cite to go. And in some cases, their children are to blame; THEY are afraid their firends will think they PUT (heir parents in a rest home > because they didn't want to . bother caring for them at •' home. • Remember Pay Your taper Boy STRONGEST pain relief you can get without a prescription/ ST.
