EIGHTH GRADE — Janice Roope Offers Safety Points Police Chief George Roope today 6ffered a few safety pointers on safe driving with the heavy snows around the corner. Motorists have the idea that accidents when the roads are slippery are caused entirely by ice or snow, but this isn't the case at all. "Most often," Roope.said, "it's the driver inability to cope with hazardous conditions that leads to an accident." A motorist's Judgment and coordination are basic qualifications for sizing up a potential danger and acting to avoid it, he explained. Another increasingly important factor during hazardous winter driving is traction - the ability of the wheel* to grip the road in order to get vehicle moving. "Without good traction, a driver's judgment and coordination and the steering wheel and brakes of his car mean very little," Roope noted. Some snow tire* help with 51 per cent better traction on loosely packed snow, but sometimes this is not enough when snow is deep or where hills are fairly steep, according to National Safety Council studies. Reinforced tire chains help with 313 per cent better traction than regular tires on #now and are four times as good on ice. Extra caution and reduced speeds are still basic necessities for safe winter driving, Roope emphasized. Kiwonis to Honor 4-H Club Leaders Forty 4-H Club leaders will attend a dinner in their honor at Westminster Presbyterian Church Wednesday night. Hosts will be Austin Kiwanians and Kiweens.

The majority view was that as long as teachers serve as chaperones, and the trip in some part coincides with school time the school has legal and moral responsibility that should actually be solely with the YMCA. Board members felt the trip should be taken after school ends in June which would make the trip and an exclusive YMCA function. Th« board made this statement: "Although the board of education feels that the YMCA-sponsored trip could more properly be taken during the first week following the close of school, in recognition of the desire of some parents to send their children on the trip during Easter week, participating students will not be penalized assuming that all normal work is properly accomplished."

Utilising exhibits and demonstration equipment, the demonstrator at the high school auditorium will explain the fundamentals of atomic energy and compare it with other types of energy. He will further explain how atomic energy is released through radiation and fission and how it is used n agriculture, medicine, industry and other fields. Illustrative charts, panels, models and equipment will play im- Jortant roies in the demonstration. One of the outstanding attractions of the exhibit entitled "This Atomic World" will be a demonstr* tion model of the Van de Graaff electrostatic generator. This device which generates 280,000 volts of static electricity will be used o explain how large models are used in physics laboratories to study atomic structure. One of the main purposes of the raveling exhibit is to meet the needs of principals, science treaoh- irs and civic leaders in stlmulat- ng a deeper interest in the peacetime uses of atomic energy.

The board voted to join the Book of the Month Club. standing and non-moving violations of a non-haaardous nature should be processed through a violations bureau so that the court may give its attention to more serious cases, The council and bar also frown* ed on the justice Court jurisdiction in traffic oases. The 1049 report of the Enforcement committee of the President's Highway safety Conference recommends that courts with jurisdiction in traffic cases be courts of record and the Justice courts are not courts of record, the analysis emphasizes. Also recommended is the separation of traffic court eases from other offenses. Municipal Judge Kenneth X. McMillan pointed out that steps have been taken in this direction with a traffic court held every Monday at Hi30 p.m. used for traffic cases only. Also recommended by the council is that juvenile traffic offenders be handled in the same manner as other traffic violators. Juveniles here are now processed through juvenile traffic court. A school for traffic violators AS a deterrent ia also recommended. Experience has shown that drivers who lack knowlege of driving techniques or rules of the road and drivers with improper attitudes usually benefit from attending such schools. ipruce Donated for Preiton's Christmas SPRING VALLEY, Minn. — A arge blue spruce tree, toppled in a windstorm, will grace Preston as a community Christmas tree.
