Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune 'Speed and Safety' Resolution 'Dead' DETROIT ('UPI)-The auto industry's "speed and safety" resolution, adopted in 1957 to stop the horsepower race and silence congressional critics, is dead. Congress immediately promised to investigate. Rep. Oren Harris, D-Ark., said the House health and safety subcommittee intends as soon as possible to find why the industry is abandoning the resolution. The Ford Motor Co. applied the coup de grace Monday. Board Chairman Henry Ford II announced he was withdrawing support of the industry's anti-racing document -because it had been broken so often it no longer meant anything. Chrysler followed suit but blamed its course on Ford. "The express withdrawal from the resolution by one of our major competitors makes the Automobile Manufacturers Association resolution inoperative as we now see it," Chrysler said. GM Studies Move General Motors, whose Ponliac division was said to be one of the chief racing violators, continued its formal endorsement of the resolution while taking time to evaluate the Ford action. Studebaker also studied the Ford move. But President ijher- wood Egbert announced plans in April to "give the people all the horsepower they want" and proved it be bringing out a new 171-mile-an-hour sports car, the Avanti. Egbert believes the rest of the industry has been "two-faced" by pretending to follow the-letter of the AMA ban. After Ford was told in a UPI interview about the Egbert statement, h e decided to make public his position. Winning Sells Cars 'We want to win races," he said, because "we know winning races sells cars." He said racing also helps improve passenger cars because you can learn things about durability and safety at a race track that you can't learn in months at an engineering lab. Ford said the industry tried very hard to live with the AMA policy which banned factory participation in races or the use of performance-oriented ads to sell cars. The policy was to stress, instead, safety features in cars. But Ford said that as time passed "some car divisions, including our own, interpreted the resolution more and more freely, with the result that increasing emphasis was placed on speed, horsepower and racing. "As a result, Ford Motor Co. feels that the resolution has come to have neither purpose nor effect. Accordingly, we have notified the AMA that we feel we can better establish our own standards of conduct with respect to the matter in which the performance of our vehicles is to be promoted and advertised." the ance Two Cars Collide- Six Dead CADOTT, Was. (UPI)- "Don't worry Mom. We'll be all right." James Richards, 17, said good- by to his mother Sunday night before joining five other teenagers for a moonlight swimming party. Less than one hour later young Richards and four of the other five youths lay dead in the twisted wreckage of a 1962 model car. An elderly Cadott construction worker also died in the crash. The sixth youth died hours later at a nearby hospital. It was the third worst automobile accident in Wisconsin his- story. "He'd just won his letter for wrestling. You don't often do that as a freshman," his grieving mother, Mrs. La Vern Richards said. "He even won a national youth fitness award." The other youths killed were Jack Roberts, 17, Cadott, the driver of the car; Knute Nelson, 16, Cornell; Valentine Rubenzer, 16, Cadott; Juanita Ankney, 16, Cadott, and Linda Emerson, 17, Cadott. Otto Iverson, 51, Cadott, was alone in the other car returning from a visit with his son, William, in Bruce. The cars met'on a slight grade five miles north of here. Little was left of the cars except wreckage and no survivors were around to tell just how the accident happened. PONDER CUTS IN FOREIGN AID TO STOP GOLD FLOW WASHINGTON (UPI) - The House Foreign Affairs Committee has scoffed at claims that big cuts in foreign aid would help stop the flow of U.S. dollars abroad. • The committee said most foreign aid money is spent in the United States. Besides, it said, "It is more important to win the cold war, in which foreign aid is of crucial importance, than to seek to reduce the outflow of gold 'by excessive reductions in these expenditures, thus jeopardizing the basic objectives of our foreign aid program." The committee, in its formal report on the aid bill, said it recognized that foreign aid does contribute to the balance of payments problem, but said it is "not a decisive factor" in it. The gold loss has been constantly referred to in the past by Rep. Otto E. Passman, D-La., one of the chief foes of high aid spending.

Suspended WASHINGTON— The Securities and Exchange Commission suspended the broker-dealer registra tion of Brown, Barton & Engel ol Newark, N.J., for failure to try diligently to learn Ihe true value of securities it dealt in.

Reprinted from The Indianapolis News—April Iff, 19t2 Power Hocus-Pocus Legal action in the public interest should be instituted to block' the sudden sleight of hand by which Indiana rural electric cooperatives expect now to bypass the Public Service Commission and build a $60 million federally- financed power plant near Petersburg. Apparently it was the strong and justified opposition of private taxpaying electric companies to Hoosier Energy Cooperative's petition to build the plant that caused that 17- member group to withdraw its case and pull a rabbit out of its hat. Hoosior Energy, which is a special group of the' parent Indiana Statewide Rural Electric Cooperative set up especially to promote and operate the proposed power plant, merely turns the job back to Statewide. And, since it just so happens that Statewide already holds a 25-year-old certificate to construct such a facility, it proposes to go right ahead and build without further petition. The little matter of the $60 million federal money to be used was no bother, because co-op officials had the Washington machinery well greased to obtain a transfer. The very co- operative administrator of REA has authorized the transfer forthwith. The people of Indiana stand affronted by this attempted trickery. Every consideration of logic should outlaw Statewide's 1937 unused franchise as dead because the organization failed to exercise it. Conditions of possible need that prevailed then no longer obtain. Free enterprise private utilities long since have expanded to fill in the gap of power requirements for both industrial and residential use in this state. The attempted shift in no way alters the basic issue of socialistic vs. investor-company power, of Washington invasion of private enterprise to stifle free competition. If what the co-ops are attempting to put over is not stopped, there will be no limit to their power to set up generating plants in all parts of.the state, to drive private utilities out of business. If the Public Service Commission does not nullify the ancient Statewide franchise, as it should, appeal must be taken to the courts to protecl; the public through a stop order. As this editorial makes crystal clear, not only the electric industry, but also every other business and industry—our entire system of Free Enterprise—is jeopardized by this action.. The electric companies appreciate the acHve support the newspapers and other citizens and taxpayers are offering against this obvious attempt to evdde public hearings on this vitally important issue.
