Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News — Tuesday, January SI, 19IS7 — Page SeVeS Car Safety Report Published Today By JOSEPH R. COYNE | mid-afternoon news conference WASHINGTON (AP) - The Commerce Department publishes today long-awaited safety standards for 1968 model cars that reportedly have been toned down from original proposals that brought industry complaints. The standards, together with safety programs to be developed by the states with federal help, are designed to reduce the 50,000-a-year death toll on the nation's highways. Although officials declined to say anything about specific standards, one source said, "They won't be too severe." They must be published by midnight. An official said any softening of the original 23 proposals announced in early December is not a retreat. "The earlier proposals were merely starting points, talking points," he said. The depatment scheduled a 3Uio to outline the proposals. They can be expected to includ seven standards the domestic industry has said it could meet immediately and possibly some sort of regulation on an energy- absorbing steering column favored by Dr. William Haddon Jr., the national highway safety administrator. The installation deadline could be extended «n other standards which the industry has said it can't meet immediately. Others might be modified tat perhaps not as far as the industry wants. The department has said it would be impractical to publish standards which the industry in incapable of meeting. The industry will have 31 days to comment on the standards. Ford and General Motors pre . nsttn- oom a- datat enods h r viously said they could meet immediately 10 of the original proposals. American Motors said it could comply with 16 al most immediately.

HOFFMAN SAIGON, Soulh Vetnam (AP) Remarkably few mental Breakdowns and a very low rate of combat fatigue develop among U.S. and South Vietnamese troops in Vietnam, a U.S. Army medical research team reports. The team from (he Walter Reed Army Institute of Research said that during the first six months of 1966, when U.S. troop strength reached 164,000 men, only 757 men were hospitalized or neuropsychiatric disorders. Only about 6 per cent of these suffered from combat fatigue, or emotional breakdown from battle pressures. The 300,000-man Vietnamese army reported only 324 mental cases during the same time, but the American researchers said only the more seriously ill Vietnamese were hospitalized. Just under one per cent were combat fatigue cases. One U.S. Army psychiatrist — not connected with the research team — said last month the mental health of American soldiers is better than that of the civilian population in the United States. Capl. Jimrhie R. demons of Dallas, Tex., psychiatrist of the 1st Infantry Division, said only 2 or 3 per cent of the patients he sees each month are seriously sick or psychotic — "a much lower proportion than you see in stateside practice." The research team said nearly 39 per cent of the American neuropsychiatric patients in Vietnam suffer from character and behavior disorders, usually involving "an attempt to have their tour in Vietnam terminated and be returned to the United States, sometimes with a desire to be discharged from the service." Very few of these patients have been sent home, the team's report said, because If Try, Try Again Acrobat and Atlila finished in . dead heat in the 1874 running of the Traverse Stakes at Saratoga Springs, N.

The medical team said a large group of the South Vietnamese army patients — about 30 per cent — demonstrated chronic anxiety reactions "with typical picture of headache, insomnia and palpitations."
