Burke, chair man of the Maryland Traffic Safe ty Commission "not a momcn should be 'lost" in putting their plan or a similar one into effect The letter, in part, composed at a meeting of the board mem befs last night, follows: "Undoubtedly the tragedy of to day has prompted many com ments and suggestions relative to preventing runaway trucks on Big Savage Mt. west of Frostburg and quite possible some praclica solution can be found. However until that solution, is discovered tiie board of directors of the Maplehurst- Country- Club respec fully urge for your favorable con sideralion the following inexpen Jve moves, possible of immediate adoption and use. Sign Use Suggested 1. On U.S. Route 40 west of Savage Mountain Inn there should be erected two signs, on the right o [he east-bound lane and facing lhat lane. One such sign- placcc about half-way from the top of the mountain, the other almost at the lop, both lettered with reflective jaint. Each sign should bear the following, or some similar legend: "Notice to drivers of trucks, trac or-trailcrs, busses and other icavy duty vehicles — you must sring your vehicle to a full stop at the top of this mountain, keep ing to the right, and follow instruc- [ions on sign located there." 2.

Prompt Arrcsi Asked "It is not practical for us to pro- •idc the sort of half-way stopping >oint for trucks as used on Summit •fountain, near Unionlown, Pa., but the plan above will be of .in- 'aluable assistance to drivers unacquainted with the highway a- icad. The corollary, of course, is A veteran of 34 years with the to enforce observance of this requirement by frequent patrolling of the mountain and prompt arrest of transgressors on the charge of reckless driving. No minutes lost in slow travel down these mountains can offset the sorrow of our whole community this sad night, but they may prevent a recur- ice.
