Past experience suggests that the answer to the later half of this question is a tricky one Drunken Pedestrians In all the emphasis on the problem of the drunken driver we may be overlooking a problem that is just as serious — that of the drunken pedestrian— "A high percentage of pedestrian fatalities in our urban areas is certainly due to drinking by the pedestrian” says Dr George M Wheatley medical director of the Metropolitan Insurance Co The authorities are quick to condemn the driver who is not in complete control of his car he says but not pedestrians who are not In control of their faculties “They lurch out into the middle of the street ignoring traffic signals or jaywalk from between parked cars to create a definite urban traffic hazard everywhere in America” — - - - — — In Pennsylvania for example It Is estt- mated that one out of every four pedes--trians killed in that state last year had been drinking According to Wheatley a report due to be released by President Johnson’s Committee for Traffic Safety will recommend that "everyone involved in a traffic accident-pedestrians as well as drivers— be routinely examined for the influence of alcohol or drugs We need to know more about the role pedestrians play in accidents he says Such routine examinations would be a big help in providing the data on which to base future safety programs Park Row t Paragraphs Herald Has Fine Staff V?

How pay for education? The question had hardly been formulated when the legislators were treated to a magnificent pick - me up in the shape of a speech by a middle western educator Dr Millard Roberts the president of Parsons College in Fairfield Iowa What Dr Roberts told them was how education could finance itself Or if not that College it had an enrollment of 212 students It was broke save for buildings land and equipment worth a paltry $707000 Today Parsons has an enrollment of nearly 4500 its operating budget has jumped from $311000 a year to more than $14 million a year Its campus plant is worth more than $16 million and it has $6 million more in buildings under c o n-struction The faculty which was paid at a yearly average of $2800 in 1955 now averages more than $16500 a year The cost of instruction at Parsons is $500 a year as compared to an $1800 national average And it has all been done without tax support and with an endowment income of less than $40000 a year and with gifts aver- IBM and Beardsley Ruml the author of the annual federal income tax withholding program to run a board that told him he couldn’t have any annual deficits He put his money into teachers not buildings (it’s the teacher he says that counts) He instituted a tri-semester system which j tilled his plant 12 months of the year He reduced the number of courses to a minimal and made them tough The A students of whom he had his pick from clamorous high schools were given first whack at Parsons facilities in October The C students were not turned down but they had to enter college in June This gave them a summer session in Continued en page 7 column 4 taken over by the lining of the blood vessels The outlook for a person whose spleen has been removed is generally very good It depends on what condition the operation was performed for In most cases the operation pro-Continued en page 7 column 4 Today In History Strategy For Victory — 3 Creating "Citizens" -In South -Viet Nam By COL RAY CROMLEY Military Analyst Newspaper Enterprise Assn WASHINGTON -
