Roving* CD CHRIS REESB A tlttl* ot Thlt, • Llill* si fhftt; Not Much ol According lo the Iowa Motor News a no-death pedestrian record during 1954 and a comprehensive protection pro- pram earned Mason City a second place award in the AAA's 16th national pedestrian protection contest. Ten other Iowa cities were given honorable mention and three were given special citation, Algona, Centcrville and Knoxville. Again this town of ours has something to brag about, .so to speak. Among other things the U. S. consists of 165 million people, 59 million automobiles and 3'•> million miles of road and highways. The automobiles are big. fast and comfortable. But the highways arc awful. While the highway network of the world's richest, mo.-.! mobile nation consists of 3.4 million miles of roads, only a little over 400,000 miles has what engineers call "lush type" pavement—solid concrete or asphalt— and most of that of the 30 years ago—narrow, built for the model T type of cai. In recent years auto production has averaged about six million new vehicle? per year. The result: 15 years ;,go this country had 32 million motor vehicles, today it has al- 60 million. Mmc than three million new cars were produced the first five months of this year alone. By 19(55, only U-n years from now. there will be an estimated 81 million cars, busses and ti ucks on the highways. But what kind of highways? This year the nation wiil .-pond about 10 billion dollars for new eais But it is spending only (i billion f«r both highway construction and for repairs. We are building cars faster than we are pouring concrete on which to park them, let alone drive them. And the United Slates in the next decade c">uid face a highway congestion and general ti attic paralysis 'hot could be simply inci edible. At !e;i.-t it's something It) think about. Must be something political petting into our daily thinking atmosphere because on account ot I've heard some politic.-, the past several day.-. tust as if we wen ah»ut to have another election and I guess it is going to be because on account of November is beginning to approach, so speak. Nn, I'm not. running Jor any office, i wouldn't?, hanker to bp the" big *chj< Algona, the mayor. However, were I ever elected there i.s out th:ng I'd sei- to right off the reel, and that's t prosecution and jail "i penitentiary, or I'd even condone hanging, for the soak who takes his drinks with him in hiM car and then throws the empty 1) ittle into the street There is the danger of broken glass getting into the tuts of your car and that might mean patching after a t)low-out. Ye«. there should be a pick-up and stiff tine tor the gent wlio pulls that stunt. _0— I am wondering what we of Kossuth county have said or done to offend the weather man be- CHUSO on account of he doesn't give us any rain, and it's a cinch this section of the state can sure u.--c it. Crops are suttering because of the lack of it. And could it be thai we're not a> Popular with the weather man .i.- j> Hurnboldt and vicinity or K-.ut Dodge. Maybe we .should vi.-it those towns and find oui how they manage to hold his liiendship and gel showers whilt we suffer in and cm-1, i^ i.i speak. —0— It was the other day that I go! a letter Horn O H.

And he also stated liiat as soon as the cards were leceived there Would be *i meeting of the new members and a gulping organisation would be penecled. O. H., u friend of mine.' lor years, i-dimtU'd that he still lives his Java and that he vouched for the new members a similar love lor the Java brew. Ant) so 1 eiieckcii my membership records and found lh;<l in Storm Lake theic are already lOIJ members of the Amalgamated As.>->- ciation of Codec GulpiTs. Yes. Storm Lake i> a we: town, that is. it lias a large jnd beautiful lake, but that water i> only to swim in and nut to drink, hence coffee gulping remain.- the W'-t- tc-st 01 drinks fur the Storm Lake Joiks. ,—o-— Yes, I had my hair cut one day this week and being a.-, bow ! had mv neck shaved, that means i! wa> iilM> wa.-lud.
