' Col. O'Brien said over 5,500 of the belts have been sold since the program was initiated at the base, and experience is proving that it; is the persons who do not have them that can expect to suffer the most in an accident. He emphasized that it doesn't take much of a stop of any other "variety." of accidents to throw persons out of their seats and into their steering wheels or windshields. . Col. O'Brien warned that the seat belts don't provide much protection if left to lie idle and that there are still many persons who drive with unfastened belts.

Vance Hartke, D-Ind., stated flatly Monday that Indiana will have a harbor, either public OT private, at Burns Ditch. Hartke and Rep. J. Edward Roush, D-Ind. are sponsors of legislation that would authorize the multi-million dollar Burn,-) Ditch port. Hartke said, "If no public harbor is built there, Midwest Slcel will build a private harbor. And if that is done, there never will be a public harbor in Indiana because there is not enough business elsewhere to justify it." The latest battle in the long fight concerns Rep. Sidney R. Yates', D-I1I, proposal of last week that Congress authorize a $150,000 appropriation to finance an Army Engineers' feasibility study of locating the harlx>r in the Hammond • Whiling.East Chicago, Ind., area. Roush said (he proposal was worthless and would just further delay the port, and that "we're at the place where we should move forward, not backward." Yates based his testimony to a House appropriations sub-committee on a plea to save the Indiana sand dunes, which he said would be destroj'ed by the proposed Burns Ditch port. Hartke said engineers have inspected the Lake Michigan shore from Michigan City to Indiana Harbor and concluded that the only place a port was economically feasible was at Burns Ditch. "No other known location would have the traffic prospects," the engineers' report said. Hartke said he was willing to abide by that decision. Yates also said that the engineers claim it would be two to three years before they would bo prepared to ask Congress for money to begin construction, ample lime for the study he proposed. Roush said "as soon as we get congressional authorization of the Burns Ditch port, we'll be asking fo r money. The time for doing that is not up lo the engineers lo determine, it's up to Congress."
