On Traffic: There's Still Much to Be Said and Done It seems as though a community's traffic problems- never CGJIKO, mid Rly- thevillc is no exception. It is with justifiable pride that the present city administration, acting on the recommendations of the Junior Chamber of Commerce and other interested citizens, can point to the easing of several problems in the past few months. The Jaycee-erectecl fence on Chickasawba, the double (no passing) stripe in this area, renovating and making Eighth Street one way where it borders the school grounds, the green through - light at Chickasawba and Sixth and removal of the Sixth and Park street stoplight all have helped. Now, much is up to the people who guide the 3,000-pound autos about the city's streets. The fact that the stoplight at. North Highway 61 and Park is down'doesn't mean you should try to "get her up to GO" between Chickasawba and the city limits. And officers report lhal some parents are violating the spirt, if not the letter, of the no-parking signs in front of the three schools on Chickasawba Avenue. Some, they say, stop on busy Chickasawba to unload children "and this can't be construed as "parking." It has also been observed by some people who have examined the school traffic situation carefully that there are a few parents who, while crying for safety measures at the particular schools attended by their children, will drive through other school zones without caution. Most of these traffic problems can be pretty well neutralized if all exercise common courtesy and a reasonable bit of caution. Don't effect a Dr. Jekyll transformation when you get behind the wheel of your car. Extend the same courtesies to motorists and pedestrians that you would to a guest in your home . . . and no doubt it will help your blood pressure and disposition, too. Toft Can Still Win Big Part Of PennsylvaniaDelegation In a reasonably accurate spnso, Pennsylvania's presidential p r i m n r y was Illinois in reverse. Senator Taft won Illinois overwhelmingly against. HaroW Stassen. the only other candidate on the ballot. General Eisenhower took Pennsylvania j n sweeping style, aj?ain swamping Stassen, his sole ballot opponent. In Illinois, Kisenhower polled upwards of 135,000 in write-in votes. In Pennsylvania, Taft coliected close to 130,000 write-ins. Taft's percentage of the Illinois vote was 73, against Eisenhower's 11 per cent. Ike's share of the Pennsylvania Republican total was 76, against Taft's 13 per cent. Both write-in showings were creditable inxler the circumstances. There was more surface evidence of campaign effort behind Ike's Illinois write-in than behind Taft's in Pennsylvania. Birt nol all campaign work meets the eye, and it is possible some pretty earnest vote drumming was done by the Taft forces in Pennsylvania. The only fair conclusion to draw is thai Illinois proved itself good faft territory and Pennsylvania showed solid Kisenhower leanings. It is loo bad these two candidates were not actually matched on Hie ballot In both states, since a fair test would then have been had in two of the most populous sectors of the country. Kisenhower was kept off the Illinois ballot because his campaign leaders considered it an unfavorable slate. Taft was held off Ihe ballot in Pennsylvania for much the same reason. \Ve may discount the senator's statement that he stayed out because sult of Ihe popularity test was not binding on delegates. Neither is it in Illinois, New Hampshire or West Virginia—all states Taft chose to enter. Illinois and Pennsylvania do not quite cancel each other. Taft won 59 of GO COP delegates in Illinois, because the officially unpledged winners are actually pro-Tart organization candidates. It's another story in Pennsylvania, where Governor Fine and the Grtindy- Owlelt organization control Koine (>0 of the unpledged delegates and have not yet committed Utem to any candidate. Despite Ike's victory, Taft still may come out with a big chunk of that delegate strength. Ki.senhoiver's parallel triumph in New York is of a slightly different order. Ha has been conceded the great bulk of New York's 9(5 GOP delegates all along, though Taft people have now and then claimed as many as 20. Ike supporters won nil but a few of the 11 disputed berths, and thus the general \v-iil have close to 90 additional votes at Chicago. Fairly it may be said that Pennsylvania and New York ran true lo form. They brought the GOP nice closer to the decisive stage, but they did not actually tip the scales either way. Views of Others Power of One Vote It the history of past elections holds true several million Amerlcnns are going to stny an-ny trom the polls this yenr on the theory thnl "one vote't count, much," Let's tnke n look flt a record anrt see just how much one vote actually means in a clase election contest. Back In 1876 Rutherford u. Hayes won Ihe presidency by a single vole. So close was that election that R fifteen member commission was appointed lo determine the outcome. Here, one vote proved the deciding factor. It was cast by a Congressman who was elected by a one-vote majority—a vote cast by a sick man who had to be carried to the polls. Later on—in 1916—Charles Evans Hughes lost the presidency by less than one vote per precinct in the State of California. And more recently California turned thumhs down on Thomas E. nvwey for president by the slim margin of one vote per precinct. Only a couple of years ago Congressman W. Kingsland Macy of New York was defeated for re-election by 138 out ot 155.MO votes cast In his district—one vote in every third precinct. Such incident* are not rare in local and slate elections—elections in which vital issues often ham; in the balance, [t Is In such elections that the importance of your vote is emphasized. It's possible for one vote to change the destiny of a nation.

Meet a doll with no kicks—perky Doris Day. Leaping from a straight dramatic role like Mrs. Orover Cleveland Alexander in "The Winning Team" to the singing, dancing star of the new Warner tunefilm. "April in Paris." is the kind of a career leap Doris likes. "A complete, chance Is wonderful for me," she confided. "I love It. TV film producers are giving him a second chance on Fireside Theater and other channel movies.
