SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1965, IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, I RON WOOD, MICHIGAN . / . fHItt Boyd Says Federal Regulation Will Not Improve Mine Safety 8EQUOYAH STATE PARK tees to Oklahoma — James Boyd, pres- ivlties. Went of Copper Range Com pany and former director of the U. S. Bureau of Mines, said that federalization of metal and non-m e t a L mine inspec t.i o n Would not be the best method of improving safety. In t speech before the an nual convention of the Mine Inspectors' Institute of America, Boyd said'that federal legislation creating 1 an inspection authority Is not the answer to improving safety performance. Boyd presented statistics from the U. S. Bureau of .Mines that showed the accident rate has increased in. coal. mines that are subject to federal safety e n forcement 'since, enforcement started in 1952, while cqal mines not under this authority have shown a .declining accident rate since 1952.. The statistics showed a deep decline. In accidents in metal mines preceding 1952 and R leveling off to the rate since that year. Boyd said that the American Mining Congress had conducted a thorough study of mine safety and concluded'that the most effective approach would be through a cooperative effort of the mining industry and 1 o c al government agencies where enforcement authority is needed Boyd said that the U.S. Bureau of Mines is the logical place for research, training and gathering of facts on mine safety. Boyd went on to say that the mining industry must cooperate in "recognizing hazards, setting up training programs and inviting the Federal Bureau staff to conduct the fundamental courses" in mine safety "Because the hazards of a n industry are local in nature and vary between localities it i s essential," Boyd said, "that these programs remain under local guidance. . . .Overlapping authority can result only in confusion arid reduced effectiveness." Boyd said, "There are thousands of mines of one sort or another in every part of the country. Each type of mine has a different set of conditions, and each local area has problems peculiar to it;" Boyd added that the mine safety authority "must be placed as close as possible to the source of t h e danger — in a mining district if practicable, but certainly no farther away than the state capital." Boyd, who is.chairman of the] American Mining Congress' non- coal mining committee, outlined the mining industry's new safety program. This program formulated by the American Mining Congress in cooperation with the National Sand and Gravel Association and the National Crushed Stone Association includes:' 1. Collect and study all', the present mining codes,' and arrive at recommendations for those sections which have general application. 2. Establish local mine safety 'committees by local mining associations. 3. Have the mine operators in districts" not represented by a local association or council set up ad hoc mine safety commit- tees to carry on the same act- 4. Provide for frequent reporting by these local committees to the American Mining Congress to insure coordination of the program and enable local associations to make recommendations. 5. Arrange for the local committees to review, with the assistance of local mine inspectors and the U.S. Bureau ofj Mines, the state and county laws and regulations governing mine safety codes and selection of inspectors, and make recommendations for revisions where these laws and regulations do not now effectively serve the purpose. 8. Provide for contacting of appropriate state legislative committees so that the desired HERO AND VILLAIN OF PLAY—The Pied Piper, hero of the tale of "The Pied Piper of Hamelin," the bonus production of Theatre North, to be presented Saturday and Sunday nights, June 12 and 13, al the Wakefield Motor Lodge Theater, is Joe Von Drake, pictured at the left. His wily protagonist, the Mayor revisions may be introduced in-i of Hamelin, is portrayed by Robert Olson. They confront one to the respective legislatures. 7. Call upon the respect i v e state governors to enlist their support. 8. Give support to the strengtening of health and safety programs of local and state bureaus and of the health and safety research programs of federal bureaus. Support development of a planned safety education and training program. based on the services of the U. S. Bureau of Mines, for suggested use by individual companies. Boyd, who was director of the Bureau of Mines from 1947 to 1951, testified for the Amerjcan Mining Congress May 6 before. a subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee. In his testimony, Boyd asserted that federal enforcement of safety in non-coal mines would retard, not advance mine safety. another when the piper promises to rid the city of rats that have over-run the community. Aiding and abetting the mayor in his chicanery are the three rhyming councilmen: Hear-good, Tom Burd; See-better, John Contratto, and Speak-best, Harry Schubert. The mayor's charming daughter, Marya, is played by Lois Leineke, and Edwin Quistorff plays her suitor, Trueson the schoolmaster. Others in the cast include Clifford Mills, Ed Mascotti, John Isaacson, Dottie Barrett, Cathy Schultz and Lynn Riggs. The colorful choreography of the Von Drake Dancers and the sparkling songs of the mixed chorus blend in an exciting retelling of the traditional tale. The setting of the story is the town square of Hamelin, dominated by a large clock tower. Paul Kendlng will be heard as-the voice of the animated clock. Construction of the set is by Joe'Francis; costumes were designed by Maria Von Drake; Darlene Borgaro is in charge of the make-up committee; Evonne Jagla is the pianist and Joel Lahti will play drums.

Oklahoma Boy Is Top Speller WASHINGTON (API — Michael Kerpan Jr. was listed last on the program and was the last speller to compete in each round of the 38th annual National Spelling Bee. But today the 12-year-old son of a Tulsa, Okla,, police sergeant comes first — he reigns as the champion. Wearing a large card with a 70 written on it Mchael defeated the 69 other youngsters in two days of competition which ended Thursday when his chief rival — tiny, brown-haired Judy Marie Guarr, 12. of Topeka, Kan., stumbled on the word "larghetto," a musical term. She spelled it without the H. Michael spelled it correctly and iced his victory by spelling the required extra word, in this case "eczema," a skin rash. A seventh grader at Saints Peter and Paul School in Tulsa, Michael is an avid reader, a Boy Scout, a coin and stamp collector and the oldest of four children of Mr and Mrs. Michael Kerpan Sr He has a brother and two sisters An excited Mrs. Kerpan said later Michael told her he would win the contest but Michael said he really didn't think he would. The school Michael attends doesn't give grades to students but Mrs. Kerpan said he has scored in the top one per cent nationally on achievement tests in a variety of subjects. "He keeps a book in every room in the house," Mrs. Kerpan said. "If he stops to tie his shoe, he picks up a book If I want to punish him, I just don't let him'go to the library." Michael's sponsor in the contest, the Tulsa Tribune, said the lad studied 100.000 words in preparation for the Oklahoma State Spelling Bee. First prize was $1,000 in cash, a weekend trip to New York and a visit to the World's Fair. The contest was sponsored by Scripps- Howard Newspapers in 16 cities and 53 other daily and Sunday newspapers. New, Portable Stage Gift to White House WASHINGTON (AP)—A new, portab.'e aluminum stage to match the architecture of the East Room has been presented to the White House as a gift by Mrs. Rebekah Harkness of New York. The stage will not be ready for use until the fall, the White House said Thursday, but an architectural rendering in color was presented to Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson Thursday night by Mrs. Harkness. spokesman said the rate reduction stems from approval given by Michigan Insurance Commissioner Allen L. Mayerson to a new merit rating system. In the two-county area, the 2,400 members who are affected have coverage through 45 group contracts of less, than 150 subscribers each. Small groups are to be rated together by area under 'the system. Groups of more than 150 subscribers will be experience rated by group. Subscribers i n these larger groups, which will be converted to the new system over the next 12 months, will have higher or lower rates-depending on their group's experience. The favorable rates for small groups in Gogebic and Ontonagon Counties will reflect the lower health care costs and less frequent use of Blue Cross-Blue Shield benefits by subscribers in the two-county area. Kayes was president when the fir^t Chinese diplomatic mission U-M to Give Spacemen New Honorary Degrees ANN ARBOR (AP) — The University of Michigan announced today that it has created a new honorary degree to honor astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White.

For example, French maps are used here that measure distances in kilometers rather than in miles. But no one calls a kilometer a kilometer. It's a "click." In Korea, the enemy was referred to as "gooks " Here they are called the Viet Cong, but the U.S. Marines have shortened this to "them Congs." The big verb over here is some form of the word "zap.' You don't shoot an enemy — you zap him. And if he wounds you, you've been zapped But by far the most widely used expression is "sorry about that." It is ironical in nature and can be translated roughly as meaning, "I know you've got big troubles, but why do you think that makes you any different from me? Solve them yourself." I Many of the servicemen now are wearing "sorry about that" shoulder patches sewn cji to their uniforms by Chinese or Indian tailors. When someone starts to pour out his woes to you, you simply point at the patch, smile sympathetically — and go your way. The language barrier here creates some antic moments.
