Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Saturday, September 10, 19W- P«g» Thr« KJooineel KJea t — o y max Around a year ago in this column we reported how T. A. (Doc) Haggard, prominent farmer and livestock producer of near Steele, had for a number of years won numerous prizes with some of his wniteface Herefords in large fairs and livestock shows throughout the middle west and in the East. Well, it looks like Doc is doing S repeat this year. We won't know until the show season is over just how well Doe will come out this year, but so far we have seen flashy headlines in a number of newspapers about his animals winning top wards at the Missouri State fair at Sedalia, the Illinois State Fair at Springfield, and the Du Quion State Fair, Du Quion, 111. In addition to establishing himself firmly as a top livestock- man in his type of animal in the nation and the world, Doc builds up excellent credit for the Missouri Bootheel as a cattle - producing region. A lot of people wouldn't know the Boot- heel is as great as it is if it wasn't for Doe Haggard chasing over the nation showing his Herefords. In this connection I don't want to overlook the T. R. Cole family at Pascola, a good job themselves winning prizes here and there, and advertising the Bootheel with their Angus bred of cattle. While all of us are concerned about cutting the heavy toll of lives, injuries and property damage on Bootheel highways, streets and roads, it appears that additional safety could be provided if the Missouri Highway Department would just use a little more paint and place stripes along the right hand or shoulder side of the pavement on all highways using a center stripe. * * * . . We read a report a short tune ago on the origin and use of this additional stripe and it seems that it was first tried several years ago in another state on a stretch of highway notorious for accidents in which motorists ran off the side of the pavement and lost control of their vehicles. The experiment showed that the additional stripe helped keep the automobiles on the pavement —. to such an extent that the accident rate was cut by 65 percent. That makes sense to me — and it seems that is getting a lot of additional highway safety for the cost of applying the extra stripe. While I haven't been in all states in an automobile, I can say that it is a pleasure to drive in Tennessee where the highways have this extra stripe. It certainly helps to keep the car on the road — especially at night and during rains and fog. The Highway Department has been using quite few gallons of paint lately on pavement identifications of railroad crossings _ which will undoubtedly help to cut down on accidents at those dangerous points. Why not adopt Tennessee's idea and paint a stripe of the outside edges of all the pavements in the state — and thereby gain considerably more highway safety?
