"The fairgrounds is not for sale and we don't intend to put it up for sale in the future," they said. The fairgrounds properly is owned by some 350 stockholders of the Cass county Fair Association'. It contsins a total of 26vz acres. Arrangements also were made to send officials Pennington, Thomas and Schmidt to the annual session of the Counly and Township Fairs Association at the Severin j hotel in Indianapolis on January 5, 6 and 7. At that meeting the date* for local fairs are set and bookings for attractions are made. INDEX Stockholders of the Cass County Fair Association convened in the north court room of the court house Saturday and determined two major items, (1 that r.igh! racing will be inaugurated for the 1958 exposition, (2) that the fairgrounds is not for sale and no offer has been received. Thus, with those features settled, the stockholders went about their annual business of re-electing all directors and officers of the organization that has performed so well lor the past quarter-century. The directors renamed are: Ben Per.nington, Harvc Clary, .lames H. Chase. Hudon Beaulieu, Donald D. O'Neill, Cliff DeHaven! Robert Dewey Schmidt, Glen Fouls, Kirk Wells. William (Babe) Thomas, George Banta and Delbert E. Smith.

Most of the other fairs in the state have been con- duct-ing-nocturnal racing for some time. The speed commute*; of James Chase, Delbert Smith and Hudon Beau'ieu is to make arrangements for the night harness show, including installation of lighting and setting up Ihe local track for the viewing and pleasure of fair-goers. Decision also was reached to conduct four nights of racing starting on Tuesday evening of fair week and running through Friday. In the past, when .only daylight events were staged, the harness shows were confined-to a three-day period. Fair officials asserted that the expected increase in attendance for the night. racing would' help considerably in taking care of (he expense of lighting the race track.

Soviets Want Parley On Own Terms MOSCOW W) — Soviet leaders challenged the West Saturday to sign a no - war agreement and proposed an international conference on disarmament.

He said the first thing his proposed commission could do would be to establish a nationwide, uniform system of auto crash reporting. Data thus collected could be analyzed by experts and used as the basis for remedial legislation, he explained. Monroney said one possible-', result of such a survey could .be the instituting of an interstate drivers license required of all motorists who cross state lines. If the accident data showed that the driver was the weak link in the safety chain, the senator said, then those who applied for interstate licenses could be given tests and their previous driving records checked closely. If highway construction weaknesses were found, Monroney said, the commission might rec- western gun outfit, holster and bullets. BICKEL'S—Elsie L.

Monroney said that from 1903 to last September a total o£ 1,223,591 persons were killed 1 in highway accidents.

King said she apparently was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto the pike. With Mrs. Bridge were her two small children. Both her 1957 model auto and the Moss car were total losses, King said.
