Ugp&r Dec Molnet Tueiday, Decemtaf 28, CHHIS HEESB A Uiii* 01 Thli, * tl«U ot That* Hoi Much ei Winter la with us because on account of it .was at 2:30 in the morning on Tuesday, December 21 that the federal bureau officials so declared. No, it didn't seem too much like winter arrival because on account of there was no freezing arid the thaw weather and sunshine: held, put all day, |h,ore like' ari October; day;,>so, to speak. And' according" to official federal weather reports the first day of winter here proved a thaw and on the same day in Florida they had'frost, so it may be that winter is moving southward and our summers will be longer. At any rate it must be admitted that the November and December season so far has been nfore like Stepember and Octobei and I'm sure i| is more appreciated than a foot 'of snow and a couple, of points near zero, such as we've had in the past years. But winter is missed, more or less, because as one lad put It "1 sure can^t say I like this weather too; good because this year we haven't had a beginning of a snowball fight." And' he's got something there. And' skating hasn't been too good because as one boy put it "Yes, we have had a bit oj skating this winter but we have to carry life belt with us to play safe—ice so darn thin." And he's got something there. Just goes to'show* that while it's winter now,, we ddn't have any- winter any way-so far. You may have noticed that the days are getting longer now because on account of December 21 is the shortest day in the year and the sun begins its southward movement again and each day increases in length several minutes. And I don't mind admitting.jthat I like the longer days the better because on account of it saves on the light bill, so to speak. And here's a good one. I heard over the night last week ^hat alcohol is the base of all per- 5 umes. But the doctor who made :he statement admitted that it wouldn't be smart to drink the perfumes. ^ ' According to a recent report lythe state safety council it be- gins to look like., the teen-ager isn't always the dH*er Who is responsible • for speeding, careless driving or accidents on. the high-' ways. There Were 57 cases mentioned in the report and the age of drivers varied,, from 18 to BO years. Four licenses were revoked for four habitual violators ana their ages Were'20, 26, 18 and 2b. There Were eight licenses revoked for reckless driyihg and speeding and the ages Were twb 17, two 32, and 10; 33, 65 and 77. Revocations Made for driving while intoxicated reached 14 with the ages ranging' 19, 3 of them 25, and 22, 28, 39, 41, 43, 47, 56 and 67. Accordingly the teen-ager and the four-score drivers don't take on the -drinks. - .There were 31 licenses revoked for. careless driving, not giving the right ot way in passing,,etc., .arid the ages in this group ran from 21 to 80. Eleven .of therft;were; between :50 and 80, and there ,#ere 6 in tht twenties arid 8 in the thirties. At any rate theVMport showed Jhsti the teen-ager, after all, is not tht most careless driver on our high-ways, so to speak. •; •£ Yep, I approve of the 5 minute parking posts in front of the pps't office. And following the busy- mailing during the holidays they will prove a good stunt. You can hardly expect a driver' to maki his postage Visit .in five minute when he stands in a long line awaiting his turn to do postage business. But of 'course that is only during holiday sessions, so to>peak. However, I have known of several, instances in the pas where a-gent would park arid get his mail and then wander up the street and his car remained parked for sometimes a half hour or more. So I believe the 5-minute parking limit will- prove a good move on the part of the'depart- ment. I am reminded that one time last, week,I parked in : a no parking zone and .was only in the post office a minute (no duns it so happened) and whe,h I came out there was a city cop placing a card on my windshield demanding two bits because of my, parking in the zone. And I had the two bits in pennies in the car; and I paid the fine. It so happens that I now slip {every penny into the car ash tray so I am financially in shape to take care of the meter problem when I park on the main drag, so to speak. Raphael Fabers Card Club Hosts ^ -''"LEG *Nobody was hurt when a car driven by Lee'Smith of Hamburg, spun around on the snow-cpvered highway.' But when Mr Smith stepped out of' the car, he Slipped and fell on the icy paving, break- 'hg his leg. -He's 70.
