Comic* •!• Clatiified Member Associated Press WEDNESDAY The Newpaper For The Home 1955 Second Section Trucks Not Inspected In Maryland ^ Pennsylvania Taking ^ Steps To Improve ;' Checks Of Vehicles • While the slate of Pennsylvania continues its moves toward stricter inspection and regulations of trucks no progress has been reported in Maryland in connection with the same problem. Two local trucking companies contacted by the Evening Times today said there is no safety inspection required by Maryland and the firms do their own checking. . The Maryland authorities have been conducting a truck-weighing program. Vehicles which are found overloaded are required to unload the excess weight and 'the owners prosecuted in the courts. Fines in a number of cases have been heavy. ' Action Advocated The Pittsburgh Press in an editorial Sunday titled "Juggernauts on the Highways" staled: "The runaway trucks continue their, toll of death and destruction. To the five killed in West Newton, ft| there have been added five more S| dead at Cumberland, Md., plus a i| near-miss in Kittanning which K| wrecked 11 autos. § "In each case—and in the many f§ previous cases of runaway tractor- si trailer rigs in and around Pitts- jf| burgh—the diagnosis is brake fail- is ure. ~| if! "What do we do to stop this hor- ~fi rible threat? Nobody seems to $ have an idea. Yet, truck traffic^ is :'"?< increasing, loads now, are heavier fi with permission of the slate, and •=? the danger is greater ^ "The Cumberland accident pro- 8S vided a clue. Investigators found ;* that an air hose which was part JJ of the brake system of the 'truck i| had worn through, been patched ?,! with tape which, in turn, wore '.| through. The leak knocked oul the Si braking system. ';;" "What happened to the slate in.. i spection service, which is supposed |; to deled hazards like (his?

"In pasl periods when truck weight limitations were being enforced. Slate Police blocked roads in order to weigh every truck and catch violators. What's the matter with checking every truck to in- sped brakes? Certainly the brakeless trucks are doing lar more domage than the overloaded trucks did. "We have suggested that the truck manufacturers themselves tackle this problem by equipping each tractor unit with a reliable set of emergency brakes. A bill in the Legislature would permit truckers to subtract -the weighl of emergency brakes from their total loads, in order to encourage their installation. "But thal's for the future. We need proteclion now, and now is when safely officials and Slate Police should act to check on the safety of the heavy equipment speeches." using the highways. Governor To Act • Gov. Leader 'of Pennsylvania said he will take steps in the matter after receiving a report on truck runaways from state police who are making an investigation. Gov. Leader believes some of the accidents were not entirely the resull of poor brakes. He said some drivers place too much strain on their braking system instead of letting the gears work for them. "Three factors are involved," he said. "The human factor, the mechanical factor and poor design, possibly a combination of all three." William E. Miller of Harrisburg, secretary-manager of the Pennsylvania Motor Federation, said a reappraisal of the slate's truck inspection syslem would be in order. 0. D. Shipley, safely director Wallach. for the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association, said the ICC has high standards for proper brake main ten'ance on the giant trucks, but enforcement of the regulations is weak. .Shipley said a meeting will be held in Pittsburgh next month by the Council of Safety Supervisors of motor truck associations of Pennsylvania, Ohio and' Maryland. They will discuss preventive mea- £res against runaway truck crashes. .."A number of bills have been drawn up by Pennsylvania legislators which would make it mandatory for trucks to be equipped with a separale and indcpendenl se". of electrically operated air brakes in addition to factory-installed brakes. Attempted Store Entry Reported By Police •',CI(y Police are investigating the attempted breaking and entering of Charles McDade's Store, 11 North Front Street, early yesterday morning. . McDade reported to police that someone attempted to enter his utorfc by forcing a side entrance, Th« entrance was barred and bolted, and the Intruder was unable to •flier. . • SUPPLIES POWER FOR MEMORIAL—Above is shown the new emergency electrical plant which was installed during the past year at Memorial Hospital at a cost of $22,000.

As of June 30, 1955. a lolal of 150,642 persons have been patienls in Memorial since ils opening on August 19, 1929. Although this figure may seem enormous, il is only a fraction of the number of people who have received medical treatment at one of Cumberland's two hospitals. In addition during the past several years more than 15,000 persons have been treated annually at the hospital's dispensary. This figure increases year by year, due to the fact thai many doctors are finding it easier lo treat patients at the hospital, than lo have Ihcm come lo. Iheir offices.

Moberly stated. In the states of Delaware, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina. Virginia, the District of Columbia and West Virginia -the average cost per patient per day' is $22.68, compared to Memorial's $17.20. According lo national figures, Memorial's average cost per day is less than one-half that of hospitals located on the Wesl Coast. The local hospital employs 405 persons, and the salaries paid these employes last year totaled $692,654.14.

The report,' released by Comp- roller J. Millard Tawes, lists 1955 collections in the county at $858,838, an increase of $33,,438 or 4.05 per cent over the 1954 fiscal year. The upswing' is evident in all categories of the report except bod and beverages. However, this decline is due to a change in category and is accounted for in another classification. The decline shown percentage- wise was due principally to fig- - ures shown -in the report which list collections from restaurants this year at $5,343.53 as compared to $26.792.94 the previous year. The change in category, however, would reduce that figure to $5,942.87 for 1954. Follows State Trend The county decline in the category follows a state trend with restaurants down 13.09 per cent and the food and beverage classification as a whole down 1.16 per cent. Increases in tax dollar collections lave been steady since 1951-52. In that year, total collection was $816,957; in 1952-53 it was $818,576; n 1933-54 it was $825,400 and in the last fiscal year $858,838. Percentage collection increases n other categories in the county are as follows: Apparel, 1.17 per cent; general merchandise, 7.97 cent; automotive, 2.28 per cent; furniture and appliances, i.49 per cent; building materials and contractors, 8.95 per cent; utilities and transportation, 29.76 r cent; and miscellaneous, 12.07 er cent. Assessments Down Assessment collections decreased 21.91 per cent on 1955 returns of S28.866 compared to $36,954 in 1954. a drop of $8,098. Assessment collections are ex- jlained as tax deficiencies or de- inquent taxes. They are assessed jy members of the field staff of the Retail Sales Tax Division. Allegany County collections represent 2.45 per cent of the state total of $34,998,784. The overall state figure is an increase of 6.73 per cent over 1954. The county filed 19,794 returns with an average 1 tax per return of 543.39. The number of returns was per cent of the state total.
