No commercial facilities are al lowed on the new freeways, by federal statute. Rest areas will provide minimum service for motorists who don't want to leave the highway. State Highway Commissioner John C. Mackie said he has ac cepted the recommendations of a Motorist Services Advisory Com mittee which included representa tives of business and industry, as well as highway users, in developing plans for the first of 4 safety rest areas planned on the State's freeway system. The Committee came up with its recommendations after a three month study which included a sur vey of what had been done in other major freeway states, as well as a financial analysis of various proposed alternative treatments of the Michigan rest areas. The report was unanimously approved by all memDers . Three safety rest areas will be opened this summer on Interstate 94 near Marshall, Kalamazoo and Watervhet. A continuous 132 mile section of freeway, the longest in tne nation, will be in operation on this route this fall. The Committee recommended strict limits on accommodations in the initial safety rest area installa tions. They suggested operation on an experimental basis with sur veys to be conducted of use and reaction to the facilities to aid future planning. The rest areas eventually will be located every 35 to 50 miles in each direction on the State's freeway system. They will average eight acres in size with extra lanes to remove traffic from the fast mov ing freeway lanes and return it safely. Parking for 50 cars and 20 trucks is planned. Limited picnic facilities will be available, de signed to serve freeway users but not attract use by local residents. Specific recommendations of the Committee included 1. Posted Information. A 4-by-8- foot internally illuminated information case which will include a map of the entire Interstate route in Michigan, a detail map of the area ahead which includes major local roads and streets, as well as the freeway route to help the motorist orient himself. An official state highway map will also be posted. 2. Telephones. Two coin operat ed telephone booths will be in stalled which will contain telephone directories for communities in the immediate area as well as com munities for some distance ahead so the motorist can check gas, food State Fair (Continued From Page 1) make every effort to get their entries in as early as possible. He explained that in recent years practically all categories have been filled to capacity many long before the deadline and urged everyone to avoid the last minute rush and the possibility of being 'shut out" because of lack of space. The I960 Premium Book has been mailed to a permanent list of fanners including those exhibitors in last year's State Fair. Anyone not on the mailing list, or anyone desiring a free copy, should write to the Director of Agricultural Ex hibits, Michigan State Fair, De troit 3, Michigan. Deadline (Continued From Page 1) a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holi day. Election law require that on this date, July 5, the township or city clerk "shall be at hit office or in some other convenient place" between the hours of 8 o'clock a.m. and 8 o'clock p.m. for the purpose of registering voters. "Many clerks have established other registration hours to take care of citizens in their communities," Hare said. "To avoid waiting in line at-the last minute we suggest that people register at once and take advantage of the special help many registration clerks are offering." .

Unheated minimum comfort facilities will be installed similar to those at existing roadside parks. Minimum heated facilities would cost an estimated $15,000 more for installation and considerably more per year for maintenance. 4. Lighting. One rest area, located west of Kalamazoo will have a maximum lighting installation which will light the entire parking area, while the others will have only minimum lighting of the phone booths, comfort station and informational sign. A study will be made of use and type of experience during actual operation under the varying lighting conditions. Maximum lighting will cost an estimated $2,000 per year, including installation. . 5. Major Informational Installations. It was recommended that maximum type information facilities similar to the manned highway information centers currently i n operation at New Buffalo, Menominee, Monroe and the Mackinac Bridge be erected and operated by the Highway Department at all major points of entry to Michigan. They combine public rest rooms as well as information on new freeways, maps and literature about Michigan's tourist attractions. 6. Emergency Services. It was recommended that State Highway Department vehicles which will soon have radio communications, complement State Police regular enforcement as assist patrols by spotting, stopping and relaying to the State Police, the location and tvpe of emergency assistance need ed by stranded motorists. It was also recommended that county road commission units in areas where state trunkline maintenance is performed by county road com missions, also perform the same service. The Committee recognized the problem of getting emergency assistance to motorists as criti cal", but rejected the idea of reg ular emergency service patrols by the State Highway Department as too costly and also a duplication of the regular law enforcement patrols of the Michigan Mate Foi ice on the freeways. It was estimated the cost of a regular high way patrol by the Department, sim ilar to those of toll road author ities, would be about $1,000 per mile per year, or $367,000 annually for the 36 miles of freeway currently in operation. The report said, "The demands of economy and the urgent need for the rapid expansion and lm provement of Michigan's remaining outmoded highways at the earliest possible date dictate a strict limitation on initial outlays for safety rest area facilities and emergency service to be paid for by highway funds.

Take Safety Along on Your Vacation Vacations at the lake mean casual living. But don't get too casual with safety precautions, says Richard Pfister, extension safety specialist at Michigan State University. Accidental poisonings of children happen at a high rate right around home, so take the safety rules along when you take off for the lake. Most cottages aren't equipped with the handy storage you have at home. It's easy to leave aspirin jars, detergent cans and perfume botties on tables within easy reach of toddlers. But records show that toddlers can be poisoned by swallowing aspirin, detergent, and perfume along with a lengthy list of other things, ranging from aftershave lotion to rat poison. Children are also interested in flavored and colored medicines that taste like candy. Pfister suggests a few "cottage-cautions." First, keep potentially poisonous things out of children's reach. Keep harmful materials such as kerosene or turpentine in their original containers and never transfer them to an old cup or milk bottle. Make sure the medicines you throw away are gone for good and can't be retrieved by children or pets. Don't contaminate food or food utensils when you spray for insects. Give painted surfaces some thought, too. That battered table and chairs may fit the "roughing -it" cottage atmosphere, but children love to flake off paint and sample it. And this can cause lead poisoning.
