Twenty-four ganized. Seat belts can save lives. Statistics prove it, reports the Iowa State Department of Health. If all drivers and passengers wore seat belts, more than 5,500 traffic deaths could be prevented each year, according to estimates by the U. S. Public Health Service. Physician experts in automotive medicine rate the seat belt the most important single device now available to protect passengers. Here's why: When an accident occurs you're much safer inside the car. Your seat belt will keep you there. Thousands of lives are lost each year because people are thrown against windshields or out of car doors by the impact of crashes More than half of the accidents causing injury or death occur at speeds of less than 40 miles an hour. When a car hits another object it tends to stop, but the passenger doesn't. Your seat belt keeps you in place, helps prevent you from being thrown forward. Everyone is safer when the driver is kept behind the wheel. A seat belt keeps him there, where he can maintain control of the car. By keeping you In place, your seat belt can increase your chan ces of remaining conscious, so you can escape from a burning or submerged car. A seat belt can be unfastened in an instant with one hand. The American Medical Association, the Public Health Service, the National Safety Council and many other leading organizations recommend the use of seat belts. Seat belts are saving lives everyday. They may save yours. A word of caution: many drivers who have seat belts don't use them especially during short trips near home. Yet figures show that three out of four traffic deaths occur within 25 miles of home. When you get seat belts—use them. ECONOMISTS DISCUSS WHAT'S IN STORE FOR THE U. S.

Security State Bank Bldg., Madison, Wis. Telephone CHerry 9-6464 Iowa City—"The days are past when the buried gold of Fort Knox made good joke material." says two State University of Iowa economists. The U. S. supply of "free gold" has been cut one-third in the last three years because this country has had a deficit of about $3.5 billion annually in its international accounts since 1958, explain SITI economists Walter Krause and Frank G. Steindl. And the gold outflow is not yet at an end. In trying to do something about this country's international financial condition, the new administration faces a first-class policy dilemma, the two economists state. There is a conflict between two basic objectives: accelerating the growth in the U. S. and keeping the dollar sound internationally. An analysis of the current U. S. gold-flow problem and this country's balance-of-payments situation by Krause and Steindl, entitled "Gold and the Dollar," appears <n the winter quarterly issue of the Iowa Business Digest. The Digest is published by the SUI Bureau of Business and Economic Research. The U. S. international deficit situation is further complicated by the fact that foreigners who used to consider the dollar as being "as good as gold" are now preferring gold instead of dollars. Foreigners apparently feel that if the U. S. deficits continue, we will have to devalue the dollar, Krause and Steindl state. Devaluation would mean that the U. S. dollar they hold would drop in value, but gold would not. Examining the cause of U. S. deficits following 1957. Krause and Steindl state that much of the trouble basically has been a lag in exports. While the economic recovery of Western Envooe and Japan had something to do with it, they place much of the blame directly on the American economy for a "lack of zest." They point to a combination of shortcomings: lagging productivity, unimaginative product planning, and unaggressive sales tactics. Of the deficits, roughly SI billion per year—a third of the total—can presently be attributed to the auto industry. While auto exports failed to increase after 1955. auto imports rose almost ten-fold. Even the introduction of compact cars in the U. S. in 1960 changed the basic trend very little, they say. A second contributor to the problem is enlarged American tourist spending abroad, which has doubled during the past decade. Although Krause and Steindl do not advocate an all-out curb on foreign vacations, they question the wisdom of bringing American military de- Dendents back to U. S. shores while letting the big dollar drain caused by tourism go unnoted. The "answer" to the question of how to increase exports—the key to the country's current problem— "hinges very importantly on three factors: better . produce planning, more aggressive sales tactics, and— the most basic—higher productivity," the SUI writers explain. However, the productivity gains that are crucial for increasing exports come about rather slowly, they say. Thus, a policy dilemma confronts President Kennedy and the new administration, Krause and Steindl continue. President Kennedy placed himself on record during the recent campaign as favoring "getting things moving" to generate more employment and faster economic growth. However, measures aimed at economic expansion at home—such as lower interest rates and more spending—are likely to add to the balance-of-payments pressure and make it even harder to hold the line on the dollars international value. Krause and Steindl recommend a three-point plan. First, they feel A new leaflet describing security financial operations during fiscal year 1960 is now available at the social security district office in Winona. Albert J. D'Amour. district manager, announced today. Entitled "Facts About the Old- Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund and the Disability Insurance Trust Fund." the leaflet notes that as of the end of last June the total assets of the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund stood at $20.8 billion. On the same date, the assets of the Disability Insurance Trust Fund, which was set up in 1957 to finance payments to disabled workers, were $2.1 billion Also included in the new leaflet ] is background information on how| social security insurance benefits are financed, D'Amour pointed out. noting that social security taxes and the interest on invested assets are designed to keep the programs on a self-supporting basis. "This new leaflet." he said, "may clear up some misunderstandings about the nature of the social security trust funds and how they arc invested." It points out. for example, that these social security insurance trust funds differ from private insurance reserves and why the money not needed for the payment of current benefits is invested only in Federal securities. The securities held by the trust funds, the leaflet points out. are not IOU's issued by the Government to itself. The trust funds are lenders and the U. S. Treasury is the borrower. When the trust funds lend money to the U. S. Treasury, the Treasury uses this money just as it uses the monev borrowed from other private lenders, to help pay the expenses of the Government. The Treasury must pay interest on the money it borrows from the funds and repay the principal. Under a section of the leaflet entitled "What Authorities Say About the OASI Trust Fund" are quotations from sources outside the Social Security Administration. There is, for example, a statement by M. Albert Linton, at a time when he was Chairman of the Board. Provident Mutual Life Insurance Company, another by Arthur Larson, of Duke University, and one by Nelson Cruikshank of the AFL-CIO. Free copies of the publication, number 36. may be obtained from the social security district office at 356 East Sarnia Street. Winona Minnesota. If you want a small flrain insurance policy that will pay in extra bushels per acre in 1961, treat your seed to control seed rot and seedling blights, says County Extension Director Fred C. O'Riley. O'Riley says that, acco rdlng to Iowa State University Plant Pathologist Malcolm Shurtleff ti chemical , seed treatment, for oats, wheat, barley, flax and rye will cost only pennies per acre. In return, you'll get improved stands, bigger yields and better-quality grain. You can utilize any spare time have between now and 24 hours before planting time to make the seed treatment, Shurtleff says. Treat when you find the time, then get and store the seed until you need it. Try to treat early enough, though, so you' can hold the seed about a week before planting—especially oats and barley. The holding period will insure that the chemical penetrates under the seed coats of the grain. You'll probably find that it's more con venient to have your seed custom treated at a grain elevator, seed and-feed house or seed processor, Shurtleff says, than to do the job \ yourself.
