Wallace Walter for the $1000 lag in progress for the drive compared ; to the same -time-last year. .' As of today, the project had collected $6575, represented by 263 bghts now glowing on the tree located in the northwest quadrant of the Public Square. uoai ot ine cnamy drive is $9000. - ' We realize we've suffered from poor weather conditions,' Walter said. "It's difficult for people to get out on the streets when it's wet and slick, and it's equally hard for the volunteers to man the street-corner kettle stands when the weather is bad." Walter added that anyone who wished may send donations to the Salvation Army offices, 636 Boonviiie. The kettle stands will remain in operation through shopping hours this Saturday.

B. Unsell an nounced today. The countsron all state high ways and a number of city streets, will take several months to complete, he said. Periodic counts are made by the department to determine traffic patterns and volumes on the most heavily traveled routes with information derived used for administrative and planning purposes. The count will be made by machines which utilize pressure hoses stretched across traffic lanes. Unsell also released informa tion pertaining to a "Table Rock Reservoir Area Traffic Study," made last spring. The department concluded that "the combination of social- recreation and vacation trips ac counted for nearly 50 percent of the total trips entering, leaving or passing through the study area." In a section on future traffic estimates assuming the exist- iftmhighway network doe not appreciably change, it is predict ed that "the 20-year expansion factors show traffic increases ranging from about 30 to 80 percent."
