It has grown from 1960 with a girl membership of 5,559 girls to its present girl, membership of 10,355 girls. It has experienced an annual increase of 6.4% during this ten-year period. Adult membership currently is 1,704 persons. The new GirlScout office facility is being rented from Robert G. Taylor, contractor of Daleville.

A final labor-management negotiating session broke off at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, - * and no others were scheduled. House and-Senate committees were meeting today to consider legislation to extend at least 45 days the deadline for a strike the Nixon administration said would shut down much of the country's' heavy industry, disrupt Christmas mail, and lead to shortages of consumer goods. C. L. Dennis, president of the O Brotherhood of Railway and Airline Clerks, one of four unions involved, first said Tuesday his men would walk out no matter what action the government took. Moratorium Acceptable But after testifying before the House Commerce Committee, Dennis said a strike moratorium "might be acceptable if a temporary pay increase was included. The trend in similar, situa­ tions, however, has been for rail workers to stage wildcat walkouts even after union officials called off the strike. With Christmas mail now building to its peak, the U.S. Postal Service said it would embargo all longdistance mail except first class, air mail and air parcel post in the event of a rail strike.

Konkle said repairs were ordered for 4,000 of the 7,875 buses inspected by the troopers. Konkle said he favored school bus inspection twice a year, once in January in accord with the annual motor vehicle inspection program, and once in the fall by state troopers. "The decision to include school buses in the regular inspection program rests with the state school bus committee under the chairmanship of the superintendent of public instruction," Konkle said. "Indiana has one of the finest school bus safety programs in the nation, but we can strength­ en it by inspecting our buses twice a year," he said. - "State police school bus inspectors can assure that various types of required equipment are installed and in proper operating condition," Konkle said. "They can also spot obvious defects, but our inspections need to be reinforced by experienced mechanics." Konkle's news release also contained a statement by Capt. S. R. Wasson, commander of tte state police motor vehicle inspection division, who pointed out that there have been no school bus fatalities in the past two years in Indiana.
