THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1966 fHE REGISTER-NEWS — MT VERNON, ILLINOIS Pay Taf f ic Ticket To TheBank? By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Before the end of the year, banks here arc expected to try an experiment that has, to a degree, been tested successfully in Chicago: They will accept payments for traffic ticl<ets. The idea was unheard of « decade ago. The very concept of banks is changing. Once the handlers of cash and checks, many banks now view tliemselvcs instead as sei-vice institutions whose main Job is to find a need and then satisfy it. Money may be incidental. The big change, then, hasn't been merely the disappearance of fortress facades and story smiles and their replacement with something more pleasant. The big change can't always be seen. A vice president of one of the nation's largest "full service" banks commented recently that banking practices today would have disturbed his board of dircctoi-s just tlirce decades ago. "They would have been considered frightening variations." he said. Two big factoi-s are Involved: Behind the revolution are machines, particularly the electronic computer .'These permit banks to handle an enormous volume of paper work. They now are able to keep records, analyze them, transfer them at a pace once impossible. Ahead of this revolution is the prospect of markets that never before existed. Modem America's middle class is growing. Affluence is spreading. People are buying, traveling as never befoi-e. And they use credit Since the Great Depression the use of credit has expanded, first slowly but in the past decade with an enormous surge.

ROY TAYIOR, Auctionoor Tarma—Nat Caah Net raspontJbU far accidanit They Remember 49 Terrible Days Together . .. t By mSSXWTTA IfTIH NEW YORK (AP) - In a Manhattan publishing office, a pretty girl reads trade books and dreams of adventure. On Alaska's northern coast, a middle-aged mechanic works on the DEW line — Distant Early Warning — and dreams of getting back to California for Qiristmas with his wife and sbc children. It's unlikely that Helen Klaben, 34, and Ralph Flores will see each other again. But there is a strong, lifetime bond between them. For Helen Klaben, the adventurous Jewish girl from Brooklyn, and Ralph Flores, the Mex­ ican-bom Mormon convert from San Bruno, Calif., are the pair who 3% years ago spent 49 terrible days together on a mountainside in the Yukon — 40 of those days without food. Helen was 21 and Flores was 42 when they met Jn Fairbanks, Alaska, early in 1963. Flores wanted a passenger on a flight home to California. Helen had gone to Alaska with another girl on a larl{, and she wanted to get to San Francisco in hopes of joining a group going to Mexico. She agreed to fly with Flores. When their plane crashed into the trees near Aeroplane Lake, on the border of the Yukon Territory and British Columbia, experts wouldn't give them more than a few days to survive in the frozen waste, where temperatures dropped to 48 degrees below zero. But their "tremendous will to live," plus the fantastic energy of the small Flores — who chopped down trees with a chisel and hammer and built fires for weeks when melted snow was their only sustenance — kept them alive until a plane spotted their distress signal and they were rescued. Today, Helen is an assistant editor'of the Macmillan Division of the Crowell-Collier publishing firm. Her foot, from which five toes had to be amputated because of frostbite, scarcely bothers her now. An operation That's not Soapy Sale* . . , Mt. Vemon oil man and leader It seems Carter was in charge of the initiation of a large class | of Shriners at East St. Louis. As such, he presided at some of the more unceremonious and un- llgnified rites of the induction. Since it was his last time to conduct the affair, fellow Shri- It Is Jim Carter, well-known In Shrine affairs. ners thought it would be amusing to give Carter a dose of his own medicine. Which they did, with the above results. Carter took it in good humor, as indicated by his smile breaking through the meringue. Farrington Center last December made it possible for her to walk without pain, and to wear the kind of shoes a 24-year-oId girl would want to wear. Since their rescue, she and Flores have corresponded occasionally. She got a Christmas card from him. But the last time she saw him, on a visit to California in the spring of 1965, Helen decided she had better not keep up the friendship. For Flores, who in the tradition of the Mormon Church is a lay minister, was just as determined to convert the Jewish girl to the Mormon Church as he was during their long ordeal, when he kept telling her their rescue depended on her accept ance of the divinity of Christ. And Helen is just as determined as ever to stick to "my faith in my friend God." So, wtiile she still thinks of Flores as a wonderful person to whom she owes her life, Helen doesn't plan to correspond with him any more. When she thinks of those frozen days in 1963, her recollections are "not at all" nightmarish. Nor has her love for adventure diminished. "I love my job," she says, "and I'll stay with it — unless someone offers me a trip aroxmd the world." Jnsect Problems? REMOVE FOOD, DISHES BEFORE USING PESTiCiDES «. t.

This fact, surprisingly, was learned slowly by some famous banks. Almost against their wishes they recognized that competitors did not share their view that easy credit was a financial sin. "I could go onto a subway train right now and lend money to everyone on the car and I'd have a good rate of repay­ ment," the bank vice president said. He wouldn't, of coiu^e, but his point was made. One result of this is to find application blanks for credit ; cards displayed at travel termi-, nals, banks, restaurants, gaso- ] line stations. ^Vherever you a, a credit blank isn't far away. j All this is an intermediate; stage. The eventual goal of this \ electronic barJdng is the cash­ less society. Accounts wiij be constantly updated whenever a purchase is made. Many bills will be payed automatically. YOUNG MISS DEPT.
