New York police called in workmen Friday night to board up ground-floor store and office windows in the blocks surrounding the United Nations Plaza, site of the afternoon rally. More police ttian usual cruised the main staging areas of Central Park, and hundreds of gray wooden barricades used for crowd control were delivered to convenient street corners and plazas. The sponsoring group of peace and civil rights leaders, the Spring Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, distributed thousands of maps and leaflets showing march routes, rallying points, staging areas, eating and restroom facilities, lost child centers, and even a booth of 30 attorneys for demonstrators who may need legal aid.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The oil of U.S. planes and helicop- ers claimed by the Vietnam war is increasing, a Defense Department report indicates. A Pentagon fact sheet re- eased Friday forecast that 802 planes and helicopters would be ost in the fiscal year ending June 30. That would be a 44 per cenl increase over Hie 556 aircraft lost by U.S. forces in Vietnam during the previous 12 months.

McKee is also concerned over the traffic hazard and conges- !ion at the base entrance He said, that if the situation :s not rectified, there will be a serious accident at the intersection. Regarding McKee's request that the state install a signal at the base entrance which could ae used for traffic control during the peak hours in the morning and evening and used as a caution light during the rest of the day, Smith said the state would not approve such an ar- angement for saftey reasons. ' Moreover, said Smith, the itate does not install signals, al- Ihough its approval is necessary before one can be erected. He aid it would be the responsibility of the county to purchase and install the light. Smith's own recommendation, to which McKee agreed, was to request the state police have an officer to direct traffic twice daily to direct the peak hours. Of this arrangement, Banks said a light could be installed for much less than it would cost the state to have an officer on duty. Regarding the widening of Highway 61 within the city, Smith dismissed this as unacceptable to the state because of costs and right-of-way difficulties. The best that can be done in the near future, he said, is to install left-turn lanes at Highway 61 and Main. The road is wide enough at this junction, he said, so that all that really needs to be done is to mark the lanes and install controls or signs. However, he added, it is up to the city to prohibit parking at the southwest corner of the intersection so that there will be room enough for the extra lane. Smith also bulldozed the proposal too for overhead signs at the Yarbro (urn-off and Highway 61 and 18 interchanges on Interstate 55. He read from the guidebook of the highway department a list of nine conditions, all or most of which, he implied, must be met before the state would permit over head signs. Some of the conditions which must be met are traffic volume to be at or near capacity, complex interchange design and tour lanes in each direction. The committee had advocated the signs because it felt many travelers on the Interstate bypassed the city because they missed the turn-offs and because it feels the present signs are confusing and a traffic hazard. . Of the airport road, Ritchey asked Little if any work could be expected to begin "soon." Little answered that "soon" was a good word because it Is so vague. The mayor said the road has top priority and that the city is working as fast as it can and will do as much as money allows. ft. Is expected any improvement on the airport road will be a joint city-county effort. Banks had to leave the meeting before Ibis subject came up, and no one else present could speak officially for the county. Little said the city.was investigating the matter with the airport commission and was working on a master plan for the airport as well as attempting to gel scheduled airline service. There was unanimity regarding the desirability of perimeter roads to by-pass the downtown traffic, but here again, no one could offer any fast estimate as to when work could actually begin. Little said the Highway 61 and 18 sections should begin immediately, but there is no agreement on which route to take. Highland Avenue, he suggested, could be extended straight out to form one leg of a by-pass system. He told the committee he was "real sick" over Moultrie Road. He said there was no chance of getting right-of-way from homeowners whose property adjoin the street. Walnut Street was also mentioned as a possibility, but here, the east end of the street terminates in a cluster of houses which are a serious obstacle to any extension plans. Toward the end of the meeting, it was agreed that the committee, with the help of city and county officials, would continue to fight for its goals in the face of apathy on the part of the state.
