WE ASKED THEM Do you think having a car hurts a students grades? A man named Sam Levenson, speaking on a television show a few months ago, said what many parents and educators had believed but hesitated putting into words that cars and high school students and their grades dont mix so well. As soon as one person had dared to speak, the idea was immediately picked up to be carried by school surveys, teachers. counselors, parents and students. Now it is one of the problems being discussed through the nation Does having a car at his disposal detract from & students grades. Surveys made in actual high schools indicate that a small percentage of A students have cars either of their own or at their disposal whenever they choose to drive; the percentage of B students is a little higher and so on until for the lower grades or students who are actually failing in school or have left school altogether the percentage is quite high. Davis High school has taken such a survey. Staff members of the Dart, Davis High school newspaper, will release the results of the survey with their next issue. Indications are that the results will show the same trend as the national surveys. Meanwhile, a poll was taken of the students at Davis, with these four opinions expressed quite generally following the feeling as the rest of the students who were contacted.

Fisher The Board of Davis County Commissioners are cooperating with the First District Juvenile Court and the U. S. Forest Service in setting up a program whereby fines issued by the court may be worked out by juvenile first offenders. It is felt, by the Countys lay officers, that working out a fine could be of great value in rehabilitating youths who have committed minor offenses but dont have the money to pay a fine. We feel that by forcing them to pay a fine, were not really punishing the offender, but his parents, instead, Kenneth Keiser, Davis Comity probation officer. We also feel that the youths learn very little from just paying a fine with money, but if they have to use their muscles to pay it off, its quite a different thing, the officer concluded. According to the plans for working out such a program, offenders from the north end of the county will meet at the courthouse on a specified morning and be transported to a specific job supervised by the U. S. Forest Service. The same pattern will be followed for offenders from the south end of the county with The Forest Service office in Bountiful set as the meeting place. Optional City Sales Tax? A letter from the Centerville City Council has informed the County Commissioners that they favor the enactment of the local optional sales tax ordinance. Several other communities have requested that the Commissioners pass the ordinance in order that the municipalities might pass similar ordinances to benefit from the additional funds with which to operate' their local government facilities. According to the new law, the county must first pass on the ordinance before any municipality can legally do so. This ordinance will be one of the main topics when the municipal leaders meet with the County officials at their regular Municipal Correlation meeting on May 21st.' May Is Radio Month May has been officially proclaimed as National Radio Month by the Board of Davis County Commissioners. I'pon the request of representatives from Davis Countys only radio station, KBBC, Centerville, the Commissioners issued the following proclamation: Whereas: your radio station in tune with our citizens and alert to their wishes have rendered service of great value by continually providing fine entertainment and dependable information, and Whereas: our radio station in tune with our communities and sensitive to their needs and objectives have consistently volunteered their assistance in the promotion of civic projects and placed their facilities at public disposal in time of crisis, and Whereas: our radio industry generally, in tune with our country and vitally concerned with its progress, has contributed much to the economic, technological, and cultural development of the United States and occupies a significant position in the maintenance of its welfare and national security, now Therefore: We, Clyde B. Adams, Eugene Tolman, G. Evan Taylor, as the Davis County Commission, by the authority vested in us, do hereby proclaim that the County of Davis will observe the month of May as National Radio Month and call upon all citizens to take note of the achievements of the radio broadcasting industry and the men and women associated with it. Chairman to Recreation Board Former County Commissioner M. P. Leonard, has been named chairman of a subcommittee of the Davis County Recreational Advisory Board. The subcommittee will study the problem of reopening some of the former bridle paths and establish others along the foothills throughout the County. During the same meeting of the recreation committee, it was decided to start the regular monthly meetings at 8 p.m. instead of 7:30 p.m. for the summer months. They will also meet on the last Tuesdays of the month instead of the first Tuesday, as in the past. The committee also officially adopted the name of Big Sky for the recreation area soutn and east of Bountiful Peak, for which the committee has plans of developing a winter recreation area. The name was suggested by F. C. Koziol, Wasatch Forest supervisor. A discussion of expansion plans for Mueller Park, brought out the fact that if the recreation committees plans are completed, there will be additional room for 67 family units or approximately 335 people at the park, one of the oldest recreation areas in Davis County. The Recreation Committee has assigned Grant J. Cullimore, County Recreation Director, to make a survey of golf enthusiasts throughout the county. Recreation Meet Open Any interested resident of Davis County is invited to attend the recreation conference to be held at the Hotel Newhouse in Salt Lake City on Friday and Saturday, May 22 and 23rd. Friday's meeting will begin at 2 p.m, and a morning meeting Is scheduled for Saturday with the conference ending at 1 p.m. The conference is the eighth annual Utah Recreation and Parks Conference sponsored by the Utah Recreation and Parks Association. According to the letter sent to all mayors and councilmen throughout Davis County, urging their attendance at the meetings, the purpose of the conference is to bring together in forum, all the recreation and park interests in the state. The Davis County Recreation Committee members felt that attendance at the conference would be of great benefit to the local recreation development plans and programs. Volunteers Needed This week. Grant J. Cullimore, Kaysville, Davis County Recreation Director, issued an appeal for more volunteer help and local directors for the summer recreation program. Anyone who has had some experience or is interested in teaching any of a variety of hobbies and skills are urged to contact members of their city council or the County Recreation Committee members," Mr. Cullimore said. Listed as possibilities for summer activities to be taught in the various communities are the following: Various forms of adult recreation: arts and crafts; archery; baseball; basketball; telling tennis and gun safety. Of course, the program is open for suggestions in other recreational lines and we'll give assistance in setting up any phase of recreation desired by a group large enough to warrant it, the director said. get good grades they will whether they have cars or not.

Jet flies, But stays On ground The jet engine of a supersonic bomber is flying high at an aircraft plant, before it ever leaves the ground. The engine is checked at various simulated altitudes and mach numbers while it actually remains at static sea level. Objective of the test, which generally runs about two to four hours, is to find a way to measure absolute thrust. All engine conditions are carefully monitored in the test control room during test run. Various pressures are reported through giant manometers located on both sides of the control room. Because of the constant roar of the jet engine throughout th test period, personnel directly connected with the project wear special intercom head sets. Other tests performed by the aircraft company are power plant system evaluations, starting characteristics and engine performance. Tests are also made to determine the effect of jet engine exhaust gas temperatures and noise on airplane structure and equipment. PLANES. Honors awarded Local VU" Students Local-option sales tax May give high revenue To address AAUW Salt Lake City One Layton student and one from Kaysville were honored at award nights of University of Utah Associated Women Students and Associated Men Students. Janice Adams, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Allen A. Adams of Layton, was named to membership in Spurs, sophomore honorary service group, and Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman scholastic honorary. Miss Adams has been a freshman at the U. this year and is a psychology major. She was graduated from Davis High in 1958. Paul F. Liston, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Lee Liston of Kaysville, was chosen for membership in Owl and Key, senior mens honorary group, and was presented with an award for outstanding service in the Army ROTC. He is a senior political science major and a 1955 graduate of Davis. In many communities of the State, the of l'c local-option sales tax, recently enacted by the 1959 Utah Legislature, may produce half as much revenue as is nowr being received by cities from the local prop- I erty tax. This opinion was expressed in a report just released by Utah Foundation, the private onprofit government research organization. The Foundation report observes that problems of local governments in Utah have been studied for the past several years by a number of special committees and by the Utah Legislative Council. Although a large part of the legislative program recommended by these group was not adopted by the 1959 Utah Legislature, several important measures were enacted. Among these were, the JA of 1 local option sales tax, an optional strong-mayor form of government for first and second class cities, and permission for counties (but not cities) to accumulate funds for capital outlay. Foundation analysts estimate that during 1958 city taxpayers in Salt Lake County paid more than $1 million in taxes to provide municipal-type services for residents living outside incorporated cities. Based on 195'' property valuation, a 3.7 mill county-wide tax (S3. 70 per $1,-0OO assessed valuation) was required to pay for the municipal services provided by the county in such unincorporated areas. City taxpayers paid this county tax in addition to city levies imposed for furnishing the same services within their respective communities.

The 1959 Legislature enacted legislation which will prevent one county service area from overlapping another.
