Speeding Isn't Major Cause Of Most H ighway Accidents Th« famous Psiinnylvania Turnpike, now 260 rnilo* \ong, IB one of the nation's most useful traffic laboratories, It» superbly engineered roadway i< in manjr ways tli« most advanced in the United State*. Th« pike u well-marked. Carefully graded, though h cuts through the heart of the Allegheniss, it features long »tretch«» of uninterrupted concrete with .limited ncce«« from connecting highway*. Consequently, it is an authorized »p««dway. Once thars was no ceiling at all, but now It is 70 miles an hour. Since so man.r traffic officials stresd speed as the real villain in today's tremendous highway accident toll, the turnpike's experience on this score is worth looking at. To begirt with, the turnpike conimis- mission, in a recent check, learned that the speed maniac is not nearly so common a» imagined. With radar measuring device*, it discovered that about one- third of the turnpike's traffic traveled at from 40 to 50 mileg an hour. Six per cent went along below -10. Somewhat less than half of all cars were driven at speeds from 50 to GO miles an hour. And only one out of eight between 60 and the legal top of 70. Not even 1 per cent violated the limit. Now the turnpike is far from having a perfect, accident record. Indeed the recent tests were aimed at gettng data on that very problem—how to curb accidents on what was designed as a model rojidway. But the commission reported after close study that "the relatively high speeds permitted are not the cause of the majority of the mishaps, or fatal or non-fatal accidents on this superhighway." Supporting the newest evidence was the wartime record. In 1JM4, with tiros and gasoline rationed and low speed limits in force, Ihe turnpike had its worst accident rate of ail time in comparison to the volume of traffic. Commission research disclosed that 5.5 of every 10,000 commercial vehicles on the pike were involved in accidents, while only 2.6 of every 10,000 passenger cars had mishaps. Therefore, light trucks now have been ordered to operate under H 50-mile limit, and further measure* are under consideration. This is not to say that trucks are the ciiuse of the shocking traffic toll. But it is to suggest that truck drivers are apparently somewhat less reliable than passenger-car drivers on the open road. Unquestionably, that factor i« but one of many affecting the complex accident problem. The value of the Pennsylvania tests is in demonstrating that many traffic authorities vastly overplay the significance of speed in the accident picture. The turnpike evidence indicates that fast driving is not the major cause of the trouble. Let's hope all highway officials pay heed to this record—compiled on the bent proving ground available. MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1981 May Take Drastic Measures The wild gyrations of the aris cab driver arc legendary. He is a great strategist when operating on the public thoroughfare. With admirable will power, he restrains his brake foot 90 per cent of the time. His beeping horn is his greatest offensive weapon. Paris traffic rules are so cumbersome and complex that the average cab- bie apparently figures he IB doing the authorities a favor by ignoring them— which he does very wall. Now, however, the Paris police have somehow aroused his ire. A man of spirit, the cabbie naturally has risen to the challenge. He has threatened the authorities with drastic retaliation. He 1ms promised that if the annoyances of the police do not stop,.-he and all his brethren will obey the traffic rules. Views of Others Still With Us War makes refugees, but postwar tyranny and Intolerance make them, too. The problem of the dtsposscd It still with us and will continue to b« with m long after the International Refugee Organization, which has done such sterling work, folds up this year. Anticipating the tragedy of hundreds of thou- taniU of homeless who will then face a world without international machinery to help them, queen Juliana of the Netherlands has Bent a moving appeal to President Truman to initial* a "new approach" to this problem. With a woman's sure feeling for the Individual and human values Involved, she peon's ou t th< humane us well as the political and economic aspects Involved. Too often, she declares, the refugees are dealt with only on the basis of their valu« as a labor potential; yet tfte old, the sick, the disabled, and the children cannot be disregarded. What Is needed U the social worker'a • pproach anrt the "Christian spirit of mutual responsibility and love." It Is good to have the head of n state speak out thus. Her own small, overpopulated country .already swollen by those who are in a sense "refugees" from the unsettled conditions in Indonesia, ha« recently decided to admit another group of old and Invalid refugees as' a humanitarian act. A good deal more of this spirit will have to be shown by countries better able to.assimilate new groups. Other larger refugee problems—in Korea and the Arab states, for instance—require Individual consideration but International action. Politically explosive, humanly urgent, this question should be hij;h on the free worlds agenda—and its conscience, —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR On Living Longer Dr. LouU N. Katz of Chicago, president tif Ihe American Heart Association, advises this to avoid hfnn trouble. "Don't try to keep up with the Joneses ... get some fun out of life . . . relax." This prescription demands more time—rather, more leisure. Uut how come, as we have accumulated more leisure, we have accumulated more heart trouble? Maybe we're working too hard at leisure, [[uttering our hearts at how to consume it. The bejt prescription is that which tile old fogies used to follow a KO od day's work and » good night's sleep, the Joneses notwithsiand- tug to the contrary. — DALLAS MORNING NEWS SO THEY SAY Our educational aim should be to teach men how lo live, to enjoy health, happiness and usefulness.

(NBA) ----- Only hnlf of Connecticut Senator Brlcn McMahon's latest big idea got much attention. This WHS the part that proposed muss production of new atomic weapons at a cost of $6 billion a year. The part that got lost was the Senator's other resolution, calling on all the peoples of the worid to unite for a groat moral crusade Tor pence, freedom, and disarmament in all convention- chemical, atomic and hydrogen armaments.

This statement is supported by previously released information. The supply of uranium ore hits been greatly increased since the end of the war. There have been new discoveries in Colorado and New Mexico. There is still a more promising discovery in the Lake Athabaska region of Canada. Uranium is being processed as a by-product of super- phosphate fertilizers in Florida and gold mine tailings in South Africa. The original Hanford and Oak Hidge plants were built to utilize the then-nvailnble supplies of uranium ores.

This is progress indeed, as many of those now in their middle or later years can readily testify. There are still a few, however, who develop a chronic discharge from the ear and have trouble getting rid of it. The usual cause of running ears is a chronic infection in the middle ear, novel from Hollywood. • • • From one of Peter Edson's Washington Columns: "Non-essential highways, schools, public works of all kinds would be curtailed."

Colorado deposits are in sandstone formations. New Mexico deposits are in limestone. Many Sources of Fissionable Material Still another factor to be considered is the possible use of other raw materials. Bombs are made of uranium 235 or Plutonium made from uranium 238. Uranium 233 lias not been utilized in mass production on a commercial scale. Thorium offers another possible source of fission- amle material faster than it is consumed in a chain' reaction. It is now undergoing tests as a reactor. Greater efficiency in atomic explosives has been demonstrated by the improvement of bombs from Hiroshima to the last Bikini and New Mexico tests. Theoretically, 2.2 pounds of uranium have the explosive power of 40 million pounds of TNT. Assume original bombs were operated at two-tenths of tills ef- cfficiency or three-tenths of that efficiency. That would mean that the supply of fissionable material would now go two to three times as far, or give more "bang" per pound of explosive. What all this adds up to Is that as the supply of fissionable materials increases, from whatever source, the atomic energy plant can be enlarged to use these supplies. Senator McMahon seems to indicate that the plant can now be sextupled. TOMORROW: Time clement Is key factor id all-out production of atomic weapons.

CLEANLINESS IMPORTANT Cleanliness, including the removal of crusts and obstructions to drainage, is especially important. This is done by applying solutions or "drops." Suction lias been used to clean out the middle ear of pus and mucus. Alcohol treatments, silver nitrate, special dressings, antiseptics, and a form of electrical treatment called zinc ionization have all been tried and are useful for some, but not all, victims of a chronic running report said.
