ffilKltltlttiiffWWtt News Of Men In Service SAN DIEGO - Marine Priv- ale Lonnic C. Coins, son of Mrs. Ruby L. Coins of 307 Brazos, Brown wood, was graduated from eight weeks of recruit training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot here. He will undergo from two to four weeks of individual combat training and then, after leave at home, will report to his first Marine Corps Assignment. The intensified Marine recruit training emphasizes rigid physical conditioning and survival techniques, both at sea and ashore, to develop self-confidence and endurance. Marksmanship with the M-14 rifle and 45-caliber pistol are equally stressed, and close order drill instills the traditions of Marine Corps teamwork. A thorough study of basic military subjects, hygiene, first aid and sanitation, and the customs, courtesies, history and mission of the Marine Corps serve to polish the new Marine's recruit education and prepare him to join the Marine combat forces.

Statistics showed a 42 per cent drop in night-time road accidents in London in the first month after the breathalyzer law went into effect Oct. 9. There was also a downward trend to other British towns and cities. The law allows police to make random roadside ioreath tests in which drivers exhale into a tube filled with chemically-treated crystals. If the crystals turn green, the driver is asked to undergo further blood and urine tests. Anyone found with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millitres of his blood—the approximate effect of about nine shots of whisky, depending on the individual—faces a fine of 100 pounds ($240) and a four- month jail sentence or both. Refusal to breathe into the lube means a $120 fine and the possibility of arrest. "The reduction in accidents appears to be due to the breathalyzer," said Stephen Swinglcr, minister of state at the Trans port Ministry. "H seems clear that the new drink and drive law is having -some effect." British pubkccpcrs already had been complaining about one effect, a decrease in business of up to 25 per cent. Hardest hit have been country pubs which depend largely on motorists. A police spokesman reported 'n'oticeably fewer" vehicles on the road at night and offered these additional figures: —Road fatalities in London during October dropped from 82 to 54 as against the total for the month in 1966. —Accidents involving serious injury totaled 835—or 102 fewer than last October, and the number of people slightly hurl fell from 4,668 to 4,221.
