We Await with Interest C. of C. Sewer Report A task of prime importance is that of the 15-man committee appointed by Chamber of Commerce President Max Logan to study plans for financing a HEW sewer system for the city. The committee is well stocked with able business and professional men of Blytheville. Their job is not one which will be disposed of quickly or easily. More thnn one knotty problem awaits them. But if they are diligent and per- serverant, they will have performed a monumental task for this city. We wish fliem well and are looking forward with great interest to their final report and recommendations. th« iprinf of 1981- This was the result, the ACSC nays, of ?100 million lessen by stock insurance companies on their automobile liability business in 1951. In the last six years the same companies say they have lost approximately ?200 million on this type of business. On top of this must be considered the big increases in collision insurance. Bad driving habits are probably the biggest cause of the'high insurance rates. But there are other factors involved. One, of course, is the general inflation which has upped garage repair and replacement costs. Insurance companies also claim that sympathetic juries in certain parts of the country arc awarding too much in accident damage claims, and that this is tipping insurance costs. But certainly the greatest field for reducing accident damage costs-is by having fewer accidents. And that can be accomplished by improved driving habils. There may, indeed, come a happy day when public censure — springing from a pocketbook conscience, if nothing else — will force the road hogs, the daredevils and the generally incompetent drivers either to obey the rules or stop driving. Views of Others Mr. Cook States The Case Selection of Everettc R. Cook to head the Eisnnhowcr-Nlxon Clubs of Memphis underscores the nonpartLsan aspect of the Elsenhower movement In this area. The club counts 12,000 members — Democrats, In dependents Bnd believers In states' rights. Mr. Cook, a lifelong Democrat, places the need for t change in administration above party loyalty. Veterans of two wars, he served the Stale Department on Important alignments at the conclusion of the last one, Firsthand, he cnme to know the need for new leadership in domestic and foreign affairs. Referring to the administration, Mr. Cook says: "They have scrapped the Jeffersonian principles on which the party was founded and have reduced the South to the status of an orphnn child for upholding t-hese principles. As a substitute they have forced upon us socialism and cotr'jpticn. "It Is lo these radicals, socialists and corrupt politicians thai Stevenson would owe his election. Whatever he sny.s, it Is unrealistic to expect that he would expose those who hnd made him President. The salvation arid integrity of our form of government depends on : the election of Elsen- hower. He stands squarely^flgalnst socialism and he intends to preserve states' -rights. "lie is a, man of integrity, a world-wide respected leader, one whu places the American people above self and friends, and one who will get the Job done." Reflecting on that, kind of thinking, more and more Southern leaders are Joining the Elsenhower crusade. Election dny is less than a month away. It is time to stand up and be counted. Insurance Costs Make Traffic Accidents 'Luxury' Automobile accidents — like steaks, mink coats and six suits in the closet—are getting priced right into the luxury class. Only the well-heeled can afford to have them. Steadily rising accident figures, boosting the already appalling traffic toll, are skyrocketing hoth collision and lialjility insurance costs almost to the prohibitive level. Hardest hit by the more expensive in- su ranee probably will be the hot-rod , boys, with the flying foxtails and the clip-on, metal white sidewalls, who buy their gas by the quart. The cost of adequate insurance to these lads is a good-sized chunk of the total cost of their cars. But optimists in the vehicular traffic field believe the rising costs of insurance may eventually import tn the hot-rodders an idea which traffic safety experts have been trying vainly to get across for years. The idea is that only by each individual driver equipping liimsolf with a new, safe-and-sane set of driving habits are we ever going to curb a spiraling accident rate which already is claiming 37,300 lives a year, injuring 1,300,000 others, and causing untold millions in property damage. While the hot-rod boys, with their speeding and swerving and general dare- deviltry, are obvious targets in a n y traffic safety reform, many of the rest of us are dangerous drivers in various ways. And we, too, unless we own more I automobile stock than we do automo- • biles, will feel increasingly the pinch I of rising insurance costs. I For instance, the Association of Cas- B ualty and Surety Companies points out H that stock insurance companies have H h:ul to request boosts in their liability H rates twice, by substantial gum*, since Town's Gettin' Sorry Young Inrty came In Snt'dny wanting some Kme.

Town's getting sorry. No plate hangers, no flrtrtle bow rosen. no chin rests, no snath bolts, and no Wflshboarris. —Aslwboro (N.C.) Courier-Tribune.

Producer Sam Katzinan, who gave Bob his first big movie chance a year ago in a Johnny iVelssmuller flicker, tipped me off .0 his big plans for Jane Russell's on the set of "Siren of Bagdad" with: "When the football season Is over, I have a starring film for Bob.

WASHINGON —(NEA)— The National Conference on Citizenship which held its seventh annual convention In Washington made a great point about the need for getting out the vote In the November election. Little was said, however, about the real reason why the percentage of Americans taking part In national elections is much smaller thnn in European coun- .rles.
