Tuesday Evening, December 10, 1957. For Heaven's Sake, Be Alert in Holiday Travel Public Forum I was'quite interested in .your editorial which appeared in the November 3 issue of the Pharos- Tribune.

It is not uncommon to be driving on a strange county road and find yourself at an intersection before you realize it due to its obsecurity. The posting of county road intersections with stop signs should help eleminale this hazard. Assuming that such a project would require an estimated 60 signs per township, this involves a total of 840 stop signs for all of Cass county. The Indiana State Highway Be- partment ha.s quoted the following prices for various stop signs: 0) 24" x 24" red steel sign (plain) ..
