The purpose of the observance is , to demonstrate again that traffic talent for'-the jnovies and the accidents are a community prob- theater. — ~ . lem and can be reduced when This is the'opinion of David Susskind, who certainly should be well« Formed oh the subject. As ecutive producer and vice president of Talent Associates, a TV packaging firm, he is responsible for such shows as TV.Playhouse, Armstrong Circle Theater, Justice and-Appointment With Adventure. Points To Graduates "The movies and the theater are looking to television today as never before," he says. "Any half-decent TV show provokes a barrage of movie interest. Television has ceased to be 1he Class : B 'league to its older brothers, the theater and movies^ Today it's Yaiikee Stadium."

There are such actresses ! as Grace Kellviand Accent WOl Be On Safe Driving This Thursday attacked on the community level. It was established by a .Presidential Proclamation last year and sponsored by the President's Committee for Traffic Safety. - . Last year on S-D Day, Maryland did' not have a fatal accident, and there were no fatal mishaps for the next two following days. . No Accidents • .. Also: there were no traffic accidents of any kind in Allegany and Garrett counties during the three- day period. This is proof that a little extra-caution on the part of drivers can reduce traffic accidents, and further 'proof of the value of the educational work! conducted by the newspapers andj radio stations of the state.-' j A perfect record for Thursday is | hoped for by officials in,charge ofi the program. The Western Mary-] land Safety; Council, the Women's: pedestrians can prove by their actions that traffic accidents. can be prevented. ^ As the people of Western Maryland realize they-must accept individual responsibility for preventing these tragedies, the record will continue to improve. Proclamations, pleas and urging wi|L be effective only if each individual will do his part, Walker added. The modern automobile'is: the safest ever produced, : but 'all the safety devices built in by the manufacturer can be rendered ineffective by a driver who does.not regulate his speed to suit traffic and road conditions. Walker added, "Let's work - together to keep S-D Day clean, and to keep the thought of S-D, Safe Driving, uppermost in our minds e very time: we drive." Airman Gels Assignment • Airman 3-C John E.

But one of the • most surprising developments is among writers. "The leading television dramatists of a couple of years ago, with one or two exceptions, all have left to write for the movies and the theater." Susskind -says. "Their-places are being taken-by a new crop of equally talented writers ; who : are not imitative of their predecessors." Newcomers' Take Places' , The list of writers who no longer wile, primarily for television :is long; and distinguished, including Paddy Chayefsky, Horton. Foote, Nash,. Tad. Mosel, and Robert Alan N. Richard David. Shaq Aurthur. Into their places, 'says Susskind. are moving such talented newcomers, as Douglas Taylor, Phil Reisman Jr., Vance Bou'rjaily and Alfred Geto. . ,' It's not just the lure of. gold, that leads writers to the hills of California and the canyons of; Broadway,. Susskind believes. "It's the allure of working in the movies and the theater.. Even more, Ij I think, is the. desire .to 'be free of the .deadline of • television. There's the delicious difference of time in the theater and'movies." His And Hers ..; ' COLUMBIA, S.' G..'W);~-"Mrs: W B.
